DARK CLOUD THAT
IS SILVER LINEE
(By Gertrude E. Mallette)
.Mrs. Judfan Heath, president of th<
National League of American House
wives, has reached recognition as ar
authority of good Judgment in th<
sphere of household economics. Ar
address of hers to a recent conferonci
of the trades that deal in foods hai
brought to light the value of packagi
goods to the housewife. As Mrs
Heath considers the subject in th<
interests of home makers and wltt
1 an eye upon the reduction of house
hold expenses, her suggestions maj
repay examination.
She sees a lining of silver in the
dark cloud of the increase of the cosl
! of living. She maintains that its hlgb
cost has taught the American house
wife her responsibility and will show
her real opportunity in all that per
tains to the home and Its manage'
ment. The importance of this teach
Ing may be gnaged. financially, from
the fact that statisticians calculate
that housekeepers spend 90-">i7<- of the
income of the American people. The
removal of many domestic Industries
to the manufactory has changed the
home-maker from a producer to a
consumer. She has had to learn to
purchase as finished products the
, commodities which she herself for
merly produced from raw materials,
! as preserves from fruit.
Her business is now to control
these commercialized home industries
through knowing about them and in
sisting that the products are what
they claim to be and what they
should be. The manufacturer's label
on the foods he has made Is the
housewife's only guarantee for their
quality, quantity standardization, pur
ity and even economy. The value of
a grading the products has become
so acknowledged that apples, oranges,
poultry and other foods formerly sold
in bulk are now trademnrked. and
this trademark stands for known
quality. The housewife, so Mrs.
Heath says, realizes that sanitarinoss
during manufacture favors goodness
or quality in tao products, ami mat
i sanitary delivery of the goods In or
iginal packages so that no hand
touches the goods before they are de
livered to the home, conduces to the
! household health..
Another feature that now makes
the purchase of branded products true
economy, consists in stamping the
net weight on the packages. Quantity
as well as quality is guaranteed, and
the purchaser enjoys the assurance
. that she is receiving all that she pays
for. Other economies arises from
the saving of space and labor to the
dealer through the smallness of the
packages and from the fact that pack- j
age goods do not fluctuate In price as,
' do goods in bulk.

JUNEAU VISITOR SAW '
ANTI-GERMAN RIOT
n. Pinder, the mining engineer who
has been associated with H. It. Plate, I
in the promotion of lode properties In
Southeastern Alaska, arrived from
Victoria last night on the Princess
Maquinna and Is staying at the Oc
cidental.
Mr. Pinder witnessed the recent an
ti-German rl^ts in Victoria In which
a great deal of property was destroyed
The affair started, he states, by an
unknown drummer placing the cut oi
a submarine above the picture of the
Mauratania in the Blanchard hotel
on the night of the arrival of the
news of the Lusitania disaster. The
Blanchard hotel is kept hv a German
born resident.
"Some British soldiers spied the of
fending picture of the submarine and j
demanded that it be removed," saidj.
Mr. Pinder. "They scratched the bar |
in their demonstrations, precipitating j i
; a fight which ended in the hotel11
! being demolished. I
j- "A mob had gathered by this time <
and they proceeded to wreak von- s
| geance on any German born business- ]
i man's property that lay in their howl- ,
j ing course. Four hundred extra <
mounted police were hastily rushed to s
the scene but excitement ran so high
that they were powerless to handle i
the vast mob. t
"Many of those whacked over the j:
head by policemen were not in the |
mob from choice, but because they n
could not extricate themselves. They t.
were crowded to the front by the j
surging mob." t
CURIOUS AND IN- /
FORMING MESSAGE
I. J. Sliarrlck. pioneer Juneau jew- j
eler. has received the following tak- \
en from an Illinois country newspa- ''
per. which is interesting in two par- '
ticulars: It gives a new method of
beating the censor, and it confirms 1
the allegations that food supplies are r
scarce in some parts of Germany at "
least. The article appears under tho 1
heading. "A Peculiar Message." and '
Is from the Metamora. III., Herald, and
is as follows:
"A matter of four words, written
beneath a postage stamp, received by
William Mau. of near Washburn irom
his brother in Germany tells more S1
eloquently than a page of ^writing, a r<
story of conditions wrought by the 11
war in the Fatherland. Incidentally.1 P
the manner in which this portentous ;
tabloid of war news was smuggled
past the censors of the mail shows'
a remarkable resourcefulness and it
would indicate that the writer desired ai
his brother to know the truth. ' o1
Mr. Mau, of, Washburn is an uncle pi
of the Snyder brothers of the Meta- m
mora bank, to whom he told tho b;
story. Recently he received a letter
"rom his brother In Germany. In the
etter the writer tells his brother that
since he is a collector of stamps to
jrescrve the stamp on the enclosing
mvel'ope. Mr. Mau thought this
statement and request strange, since
te had never been a collector of
stamps and found written beneath,
heso four, words: "We are actually
starving."
Mr. Mau was never more surprised
n his life. He had known that his
srotker was well-to-do and it was
lard for him to believe the nstound
ng words he had uncovered, but the
nethod employed by his brother in
rying to elude censorship convinces
dm of tho truthfulness of the nsser
ion.

STUDENTS MAKE
ELECTRIC DOG
[NOTE?The Empire Is In re
ceipt ot the following account of
a novel ? invention that has been
worked out by students in elec
trical engineering at Highland
Park College, Des Moines, la.,
from Miss Edith Bnbcock, a stu
dent of journalism at t^hc same p
college?EDITOR.]
That engineers do not lose interest
in animal life by dealing with ma
| chines is proved by the fact that the
electrical engineering students of
Highland Park College, Des Moines,
la., aro making a dog which will fol
low his master all over the place.
This dog consists of a small box- "
shaped like the animal with two
rather prominent eyes In his head.
The eyes are made of the metal sel
enium. This mechanical dog moves
his head wound until he sees a light;
when ho at once fixes his eyes in
tently upon the light toward which
ho moves rapidly. It is only neces
sary for the dog's master to carry
around an electric light, a pocket
search light, or something of the kind
to cause the dog to follow him. The
insides of this dog, made entirely by
students of Highland Park college,
consists of wires, motors and other
electrical elements. If this mechani
cal dog loses his master, he stands
still and moves his head around until
ho discovers the light again.
