Much damage results each year in
Connecticut to cereals 'and other
stored food products from the .attacks
of insects. This injury has been est!
mated -at. (!v per cent:1 of the total
' value of the" products, or $200,000,000
each year, for the United' States, and
la wholly preventable. 1 i'tf ' ' ,
The . Insects are Chiefly . beetles
(Colooptera) and moths Lepldoptera.)
The former include the meal worms,
cadjalle, .pea and. bean weevils, drug

red-legged. Juun beetle, and cigarette
. beetle. The latter include the Indian
meal moth, Mediterranean flour' m'oK,

moth, 4 and J. JIuropeair grain ' moth.
Other lnsecta like, the cheese skipper
a fly), - a- book louse, .ants, cock
roaches, . and .even niitea, occasionally
cause damage. - -:' ,

been devised, but .food often- becomes

are as follows: For small quantities,

between a half peck and three bushels.

Hydrocyanic acid gay may also be
used but Is not . advised except . in
particular cases, as it is deadly to

pronounced . distinctly:- "Victory - and
power to the lot of the Khalif Ab

through the terrified assembly, licked
his hand; and lay down .at his feet.

patch to the Exchange Telegraph Co.
says that among the diplomatic docu
ments - found in Athens since the
change in government is a dispatch
of former King Constantine, written
a few days after, the war began, in
response to a message from Emperor
William, who proposed that Greece
should range herself on the side of
the Central powers. Constantine said
in his reply: " '
. "The emperor well knows my per
sonal sympathies, as well as my po
litical opinions, attract me to his side.
Nevertheless It . is 'impossible for me
to understand in what manner I
could be useful to him in mobilizing
my'' army. The Mediterranean is at
the mercy of the united fleets of Eng
land and France, which could "destroy
our navy ' and . merchant "marine," oc
cupy our island and, above all, pre
vent concentration of my army,
which could be effected only by sea,
in the ' absence of railway communi
cations. Without it being in our
power to be useful in any particular;
we would be wiped off the ' map. I
am ' necessarily of the - opinion that
neutrality is imposed upon us." -
Gottlieb; von Jagow then German
foreign secretary, replied to Constan

derstand 'the' necessity of maintaining
neutrality for the present. He ad

Eight Million Feet
- Of Film To Be Shown
By Y. M. C. A. Camps
To provide recreation for the troops
in camp, the National - War Work
Council of the Young Men's Chris
tian Associations fn the United States
has made provision for the presenta
tion of eight million feet- of film per
weeK. in 343 cantonments, camps.
posts, 1126 programs will be render
ed weekly. - - . : y - -
Of course ' the great demands will
oe in' connection with the . camps of
the National Guard .and the - National
ments' have, been made to take carel,
of many smaller points. In the South
era Department for instance, two mo
tor trucks will be used -to carry en
tertainments to troops' in out- of the
way places.. The moving picture ma
chine will be mounted on thev truck
and a portable screen will be hung
wherever needed. A week will be re
quired for; a. truck to cover its route.
Should : the . necessity arise, other
trucks will be put into service. In the
permanent camps arrangements being
made for. outdoor and indoor moving
pictures. The machines in the large
auditoriums will be so arranged that
the pictures may be thrown upon the
screens in front of the auditorium or
out a window to an open air screen
on the side. ' ... ..
In- order- that the layman, may un
derstand what eight million feet of
film a week means, it may be explain
ed that a second is required to run
a, foot of film through a machine.
This mean's that eight million feet of
film represent eight million seconds,
or two thousand two hundred and
twenty-eight hours of solid entertain
ment. Reducing these figures still
further it - means that were an ordin
ary moving picture house to present
a show two hours long, .the" eight mil
lion, feet of film would provide a pro
gram- for one thousand one hundred
and fourteen days. The eight million
feet would1 stretch from New - York
to Fargo, North'- Dakota or Wichita.
Kansas. : tt would stretch from New
York?,, to two hundred miles- beyond
Kansas City, New Orleans and Minne
apolis. ' ::';' ?' ' ,- . '

In summing up the dislikes of the
men In camp, he said: ..
"The men don't want, sob , stuff.
They do not want pictures which tend
to" intensify homesickness or which
shout with moralizing. At the same
time they do not like pictures depict
ing the soldier as being especially he
roic or patriotic. - - , -
'On the other handy they like ro
mances. Little. Mary Pickford Is just
as popular with the men in the camps
as she is with the millions of movie
fans. The men like real war pictures.
They like farces. In fact they are
working hard and they want enter
tainment. . .."It may seem a. little strange, but
reports from the various departments
show that what is popular In one de
partment is popular in another. For
instance, , what proves a great success
in the Western Department,' also
proves a success in the Eastern,
Southern or Central Departments.
The reports from the various depart
ments are nearly, uniform.
GEN. GROENER OUT
Amsterdam, Aug. 21 Commenting
on the retirement from the- Prussian
-war department of Gen. Groener,
who, It is reported will take a com
mand at the front, the Lelpziger
Volks Zeitung, an organ of the mi
nority socialists, says : . " .
. "According to rumors -Gen. Groe
ner' s (all was compassed by a powerful-
group of interests in the army of
big industrialists for whom the aux
iliary service law is too liberal. Dr.
Michaelis has succeeded . Dr. von
Bethmann-Hoilweg as imperial chan
cellor, but the distfibution of power
in the empire remains the same. It is
notrlhe will of the people or the vote
in parliament that decides the pos
session of power." Now, as before, the
decision depends on the struggle, be
tween the interests groups behind the
scenes. ' -
"Such a struggle seems to have de
cided Gen. Groener's fate. He has
gone day day after thed enial that he
would retire ' Such a system is the

TO BUY BOOKS
Men at Cantonments Will be
in Need of Reading
Washington, Aug. 21. One of the
most interesting developments of war
times was ' announced today to the
War Service Committee of the Amer
ican Library association in a letter
from a "rookie" in a camp some
where on the map," telling of a revo
lutionary innovation in the game of
"A good book beats a 'royal flush',"
write this rookie, "and is the only
thing- known that can .beat this com
bination of cards. Old regulars had
told us this when we first came to
camp, but we thought . they ; -yere
merely spoofing. Now, among a lot
of other things, we've learned that
they were rieht about the books. ,
"Almost all of the boys here would
rather read than play cards, any day,
anid our most exciting gambling when
a book appears is to draw straws to
see who'll Ibe second and third and
fourth on the waiting list. Any . book
will do. Some like novels and some
like histories, and some like books of
travel. . But in a pinch we'll find good
reading in even an arithmetic or
grammar." - ' , ' '
Steps to meet this . need already
have been taken iby the American Li
brary association, which through a
committee on - camp libraries has
started a campaign ' to raise $1,000,000
to build- libraries at the- 32 canton-,

army, to supply the . men with 'books
and to provide good reading for the
sick and injured, at home and aibroad,
for the,menin the trenches, and for
sailors afloat and ashore. '
- Each. city and town in the land is
asked to turn 6 per cent, of 'its popu
lation, into dollars, for the pleasure
and-good of the young men they have
sent Into the wajr., The base of the
Statute of Libertly in New York was
provided through contributions of dollars-
and multiples, of - small amounts,
and the library war service committee
feels that this library fund also should
be provided toy . widely popular sub

ker. Chairman 5 Eaymond B. Fosdick,
of. the Commission on Training . Caanp
Activities of the W4r Department,
said: ' ' " - -: '-'
"The American -Library association's
plans comprehend the erection of a li
brary founding in each of the canton
ments, with the Y. M. C A. buildings
and the Knights of Coluibus build
ings as distributive points. To put up
these buildings arid obtain the neces
sary books and magazines will cost

sum It already baa named a. war

It in no way conflicts with , any plan

As is the case in and around Wash
ington, a need of (books for the sol
diers may toe seen at any camp or

As a lad of seventeen, while trying
to make his way through business col

summer as telegraph operator, it:
was at this period of his life that he
became a victim to the Vgreat-rich-quicjc"

Munsey told of his experiences as a
warning to. other youths.- .
"By a few cautious inquiries I
learned that a hundred dollars might
return a man a thousand dollars if in
vested in the right place at the right
time. I had just a hundred dollars
with which to return to school. One
day a number of my distinguished pa
trons were lounging in the room and
I stepped back from my instrument
and faced the group." Mr. Munsey
then tells how he asked for "tips on
the market," and received several. He
selected the one ' which sounded best
to him and invested those precious
