I was visiting a friend. and noted that the usual clothes posts did not disfigure her yard. When I Inquired about them she explained. Her husband drove pointed stakes about two and one-half inches In dia meter down to a depth of about three feet into the ground. Into the holes above these stakes he drove three foot lengths of pipe. On wash days he brings out the clothes posts, which are lengths of pipe of a diameter just to fit the pipes in the ground, and sets them in. Through holes in the tops of the posts he has driven pina for the support of the clothes line. After wash day is over the posts are returned to the basement and tho mouths of the pipes in the ground are covered with metal caps. These do not Interfere~with the lawn mower and are scarcely visible. Runaway Basmes Raid Kansas. Victor Hugo's story of the runaway cannon on a ship's deck must now take a back seat for the runaway Nebraska hdloon which made the trip across Kansas to Oklahoma and back, start irg Monday by breaking away from its moorings at Fort Omaha. The saae day another army balloon got loose at Fort Sill. The Nebraska bal loon, after draseing its 6.000 feet of steel cable along the ground, tearing down telephone an-d telegraph wires and doing other danmAge in a swift nilht flight across Southern Neoraska n id Kansas. dipped down Into Okia homa and then turned to the north :rain as if to circle back to its Fort imaha hangar. Its course on Its re turn trip was northwest across Kansas and It was captured late at night about mix miles southwest of Tren t. Neb. In its flight back across Kansas. the French sausage-shaped billoon passed over Dodge City. Utica, Plainville, Elli. Colby and Atwood. Two army officers were In the bal loani that was freed from Its cable at iort Sill when an airplane struck and breke the steel wire. The flight of this balloon was not as spectacular as the Omaha runaway's, but sorne ap T-rehenslon was felt for the safety of he two officers. They were able, owever. to bring the bag safely to the round at Rtush springs. Okla., thIrty lies from Fort SIll. Neither of the fflcere was injured. The Omaha bal had no occupants. The Omaha balloon apparently ran ato several aIr currents near the Okla line and was carried back cross Kansas by the northwesterly lad. From each town over which e balloon passed came reports of mare caused by the trailing cable. to buIldings was done in ge I places-Capper's Weekly. ' nates All Tr, Scrofula and Can igly Ups S. S.

Two men reported that the horses had stood In front of the offees of the Humane 8ociety for en hour and a alt with a covering of ice on their backs. They hunted up the driver and had him arrested. He told the cops that his boss furnished him no blankets. Therefore, why should he, having no overcoat, sit on a wagon and freese?

Ike noticed this, but said nothing. Herb was very very attentive all the rest of that songful evening. As the party broke up Ike followed very close onto Herb's heels. While the bunch was waiting for a car Rosie asked Ike what was the matter. He swore. Herbert called him down for this. In a minute the two were fighting and Herb got the worst of it.

Linton, Falls, N. J., Dec. 14.--"Two people have been shot dead. My daughter and her husband are both dead; I am dying!' Such was the message received by the telephone , operators at Long Branch early today. As the message ended the operators hearda crash, as that of a falling body. Oicers were notified, and when they arrived at a small hotel they round Paul Walsh and his wife lying 1,vad together. On the floor in the lway and near the telephone was 'Irs. Francis Smock, Walsh's mother in-law. Mrs. Smock lived long enough to explain that Walsh and his wife had been separated ten days. She said that Walsh entered the hotel and began shooting, Mrs. Smock expired shortly after giving this Information to the officers. Germany's Slaves, The Germans have forcibly enlisted the labor of about 2,000,000 prisoners of war. Moreover, the official French report of April 12. 1917, concerning acts committed by the Germans in violation of international law, asserts that in the occupied territories deportation of workers has been a general measure, It has "applied to the entire able bodied population of both sexes, from the ages of 16 to 0. excepting women with young children," Now the Germans requisitiop labor from among 7,500,000 Belgians, 3,000,000 French, 4,500,000 Serbians, 5,000,000 Rumanians, 2,000.000 Poles. Rutheni ans and Lithuanians-a total of 42, 000,000 slaves. Let us see what sort of remuneration is made. Take the case of a young girl of Ialle. 20 years old, who was rorced to work for six months, -har vesting and thrashing wheat, and dIg ring totatoes fromi 6 In the morning to twilight, receiving all the while the vilest food, For her aix months of work she was given 9 francs, 45 cen times (31.891). The allies on the contrary, pay high wages to their workers, and. when they run short, must needs pour out good gold in bringing re-enforcements from Asia, Africa and America. This means that a considerable part of the wages paId these foreign workmen will leave France or England for all time. He O~ h Camps, America is learning, as its allies learned In the first mnonths of the war, the benefits which camp life confers npon young men called to the colors from farm and factory and office life.

The idea of a young virile American soldier doing this body service for any man, whoever he be, is repulsive to every sense of American manhood, "An officer should be an associate, S teacher, a leader of his men.

I A HANDY KITCHEN PLATE. Often at the stove one wants to lay a sticky knife or forkd or spoon down for a few minutes. I bought a white enamel plate for 10 cents, which I al ways keep on the shelf of the stove. It In always there, and very handy to hold salt and pepper shakers, which are often needed at the stove when cooking. It is much better to keep stirring spoons. etc., on this plate when not in use than to leave them in the articles cooking. POLISHING A WAXED FLOOR. Many people like a wax finish for their floors or furniture, but do not know how to keep it fresh and pol Ished. Almost all wax that is used on the floor has a turpentine base. If you will put some turpentine on's soft rag or your floor mop and rub it over the floor, the turpentine will soften up the wax and make it look as fresh as when the flcor or furniture was first waxed. A good rub with a woolen cloth which is quite dry will complete the job.

Edade Demssaties. At his laboratory one day. Thoma Edison called a new assistant to him desk. 'I want you," he said. "to fig ure out the cubic contents of this elec tric light bulb.' The young man went away and spent hours at the task, using all the mathe matices at his command, filling sheets of paper with his figures. Finally he went back to Fdison with his answer. "Let's see if you're right," said the big man. He broke the tip off the bulb, filled the thing with water and then mess ured-the water in a graduated glass. In two minute. he had done what his aPistant had given most of a day to. This independence of formulae is one of the secrets of Edison's success.
