Another organization with cighteen-nola
Expirations is the Crar.tord Golf Club.

possession of a long nine-hole circuit. The
club has secured .option on land known as
the Echo Lake Farm, a tract comprising

MRS FLOCK TO ICE
Auto-Sleigh and Ice Yachts
Prove Added Attraction.
WIND LIGHT IN MORNING
Two Races Postponed, but Small
Boats Skim Along in the
Afternoon.
fEy Telegraph to The Tribune. 1
Red Bank, K. .1.. Dec. 20.— Hundreds of
mpn arr.l •women from Xew York and New
ark, besides local residents and visitors
from neighboring towns, gathered on the
North Shrewsbury River to-day to enjoy
the skatinp, witness the big ice yacht races
Scheduled for the morning and afternoon i
and see the auto-sleigh tried out again by j
its inventor, Fred Waters. :
About twenty-five bie: and little ice boats
•were out m the morning- and an attempt
w.-.s made to race, but the light west wind
refused to blow strongly enough to propel
the yachts over the- course. Among the
third class starters were Garrett Morford
and Commodore Thomas H. Grant's Tyro,
sailed by Mr. Morford; Daniel Asay's Gull,
sailed by her owner; W. Harold Powers'g
Edna M.. sailed by her owner; Everett
Asay's Eagle, sailed by his brother Harry;
Xewton Doremus'a Atalanta, sailed by
i Harry Allaire; William Whites Silver
Heels, sailed by her owner, and John Dick
erson's Wizard, handled by Captain Henry
Chadwick.
Abcrut fifteen boats of the mosquito fleet j
ale© were out. The two races were post
poned until to-morrow morning- and after
noon.
Except for a few bad spots, the ice is in
fine condition. One of these bad places Is
near the starting point, where the snow has
melted and left a depression. Quito a bit
of excitement resulted when Daniel Asay's j
third class boat Gull broko in, the runners
and part of the Loafs body going under
water. About fifteen men and boy skaters
succeeded In pulling the boat on xa good ice.
Fred Waters's auto-sleigh proved the big
attraction and sensation of the day. He
made about forty miles an hour, and will
give come of the ice yachts a close race, i
Some of the oldtlme ice boat skippers fol
lowed the auto-sleigh with critical eye. A
race will likely take place this week be
tween the auto-sleigh and the Ic© boats. t
Captain. Waters took the first passengers
nut In his sleigli this afternoon. They were
Mrs. J. J. Quigley and a young girl, who
were satisfied to Bit on the rcrugh frame
work, just so they grot a ride. The sight
was an -unusual and amusing one. The
sleigh was sent along at a. fast pace, and
the pas-sengers were pretty well frightened
and begsed Captain Waters to stop the en
gine. The sle'g-h. struck a "cup," where
water had frozen over the ice, and came to
a sudden stop as the water flew high in the
sir.
There was an exciting rac© between five
boats of the Ked Bank mosquito fleet in
the afternoon, the starters being the yachts
of Oscar Brand, John Conover, Everett,
Asay, Harold Sickles and William Wood
ward. The boats sailed down to Fair -Haven
and back four times, a distance of twenty
miles. Oscar Brand"s Mischief finished one
and a half minutes ahead, with Conover
second. Sickles third. Asay fourth and
Woodward fifth.
The little flyers lifted many timea in, the
northwest wind, that freshened late in the
day. and In going over some of The soft
spots threw water thirty feet in the air.
Host of the skippers were soaked at the
finish.
RiCE AS STAPLE FOOD.
Down in Louisiana, Texas and other
Southern states are thousands and thou
sands of acres of lowland devoted to rice
culture, and some years it is not worth
harvesting^ because we do not eat enough
rice, according to M. H. McLane, of New
Orleans.
"Still, there are more people in the world
whose 'staple food is rice than there are

McLane: "We are cooks enough to know
that there are forty different ways in
which rice can be prepared to build up

BREAD AND DYSPEPSIA.
Tho conclusion that wheat bread is unfit
for dyspeptic?, sometimes Jumped at be
cause 111 effects are noticed to follow its
use. Is erroneous. On the contrary, it has
been pointed out by Bouchard and others
that farinaceous food is peculiarly adapted
to some dyspeptic patients.
It is the microbes in the starch, which are
capable of producing irritating acids, that
cause the trouble. To avoid this, Bouchard
recommends that only the crust or toasted
crumbs of the bread be used by dyspeptics,
particularly those - whose Etomachs are
dilated. The reason of this is explained
by the fact that baking temporarily, though
not permanently, arrests the fermentation
° When it is again heated by the warmth
of the stomach, the fermentation is re
wiwed In cases where the bread is toasted
brown' through, the fermentation is stopped

The races with the 'varsity and freshmen

this spring. The only other race arranged
for is with Columbia on May 13. Syracuse
may send a crew to Annapolis, and there
is a prospect that Princeton will send a

Harvard has declined to send a crew, as
it rows Cornell on the latter's course thla
year. A number of races have been sched

money lenders -will not permit anything
which will impair the loans they hay«
made." •
Briefly these are the conclusions of D»
v*G Starr Jordan, president of -Leland Stan
ford University, expressed last night in a
lecture on "The Old Peace "With Velvet
Sandalled Feet", at Abraham Lincoln Cen
tre.
"All civilized nations are owned or con
1 trolled." Dr. Jordan said, "for they say
there 13 a difference between owning and
controlling a railroad, though some of us
cannot quite grasp the distinction.
"The men who make the war loans con
trol all the civilized nations. The Spitzen
| berger is not controlled. Neither Is th«
| Fiji. The "uncles' of the kings control tlv* .
I others. Emperors and Kings and parlia
ments may not declare war to satisfy m
whim, defend their honor or even to right «
wrong until they have secured the permis
sion of their 'uncle.'
There is no danger of war. but-ther^l«
grave danger that the war debt will .M
doubled. ' Europe's war debt is $23,000.-;
000.000. One-third of all the money lOJ
the world Is due on the war debt off
Europe alone. The Rothschilds ana othm
money lending families absolutely control
the situation.
i ' "Nine-tenths of the war scares in Europe
and elsewhere are made by crafty state**
! men and a yellow press to divert the a*»
j tention of the people from reforms the*
i are demanding.

"The spending of money for armanientl,"
the borrowing of enormous sums and|
shouldering the debt upon future gener*-*
tions, to be taken in taxes from the peasj
ants, is something more than a question
of finance— lt is a moral question.

PHILIPPINE LIQUOR. -
"Bootlegging," carried on by the native^
of the Philippines with all the adeptnes*
of a resident of an American prohibitions
state, prompts one of the strongest recom-j
mendaiions yet made in favor of re-e*-,
tablishing the canteen. Brigadier General
Ramsay D. Potts. U. S. A., commanding
the Department of Luzon, in hi 3 acnuu
report deplore* the inability of the mili
tary authorities to suppress the drinklna
of native liquors by the American eoldleraJ
for, although it Is a violation of the law oO
the islands to sell such, stuff to tho soH
diere, th« nathws carry on » trade in it }
at the posts by conveying th* liquor aoouttri
on their person*. Taey hang around th*;
outside of the reservations, and . it 13 as
hard to keep the men from getting it as ,
it is to keep a thirsty Inhabitant of Main* .
from obtaining his refreshment. .
All this is a serious matter to the mili- .
tary department commander, for his ex
amination of the court martial records ot .
the year shows him very clearly that a
majority of the cases tried by the Inferior ,
courts and a considerable number of those
tried by general court martial are directly;
traceable to the use of native liquors.
"One who has' rrfcver seen the effect of
even a small quantity of native liquor upon
a yourfgr American unaccustomed to it 3
use." adds General Potts, "can. -form no
Judgment as to the seriousness : of th«
situation now presented, a situation -
yond the control of the military and the
civil authorities. The case calls for prompt
action, and I earnestly recommend Ana re

beneficial results."— Army and Navy Jour
