Hclpi in Production of American Red Crof i Garment i m I in .41 The knife blade of this electric cutter revolves at the rate of 6,000 times a minute. With an efficient, modern machine of this kind garments can be cut so rapidly that hundreds of workrooms can be supplied with materials for sewing. Up to August 31 of this year, the American Hed Cross had sent to Franco 10,637,201 hospital garments made in Red Cross workrooms through out the country and by Red Cross workers. That such a great number of these important garments were turned out in just about a year, is due large ly to the use of machinery, not only in the sewing, but In the cutting. The accompanying illustrations show the machines used in marking and cutting the patterns, and which -are operated by electricity. The gar ment material is placed, layer upon .layer, several hundred deep, then an lelectrical perforating machine marks Be no longer a chaos, but a world. Pro- feco; ZfVle Y?, h the?"lf..l" i !

An electrical stencilling machine burns little holes to mark the pattern so quickly that with it and the cutting machine the department is able to cut garments at the rate of 70,000 yards for every 52 days' work. the pattern, burning tiny holes into the cloth. After this stencilling machine, as it Is called, has marked the pat tern, the chalking machine comes into use. This contains either white or black chalk, to contrast with the mate rial In use at the time. It is moved over the holes burned by the stencilling machine to accentuate the outlines of the pattern. The cutting of the material is done with a ten-inch blade. It is estimated that this machine saves from three to seven cents on each garment. The knife blade on the cutter revolves at the rate of 6,000 revolutions a minute. The combined machines stencilling, chalking and cutting are able to con vert 70,000 yards of material into gar ment sections, ready to sew, every five and one-half days. 2,399,000 18-45 Wien to Be Called Before July 'Is Over 2,000,000 Will Be Fighters Draft calls for men who have passed their thirty-seventh birthdays are ex pected to begin about March 1.

A DOUBTING HEART Where are the swallows fled? , Frozeft and dead Perchance upon some bleak and Stony shore. O doubting heart! Far over purple geas They wait, In sunny ease, The balmy southern breezfc, To bring them to their northern home once more. Why must the flowers die? Prisoned they lie the coW tomb, heedless of tears or ralr, O doubting" heart! They only sleep below The soft white ermine snow "While winter winds shall blow, breathe the amile upon you soon again. The sun has hid its rays These many days: Will dreary hours never leave the earth? O doubting heart! The stormy clouds on high Veil the same sunny 3ky That soon (for sprins is nlch) Shall wake tho summer into golden mirth. Fair hope is dead, and light Is quenched in the night. What sound can break the silence of despair? O doubting heart! The sky is overcast, Yet stars shall rise at last, Brighter for darkness past, And angels' silver voices stir the air.

No longer can you be ashamed to carry an unwrapped par cel, thinking perhaps the market bas ket will mark your snobbishness. The war industries board has made an ap peal for co-operation to the American women to help the retail stores comply with the recent order for discontinuing the wrapping of package merchandise ; so do not protest when your dealer asks you to carry home your cabbage, your beets or carrots, your fancy cracker box or lurid sirup can unwrap ped. Put your pride in your pocket and your unwrapped parcels in your basket and trudge home cheerfully with them. It is the fashion ! Disdain the paper bag that you real ly do not need. Only bread, pastry, sugar, tea and such things are entitled to be wrapped just now. Save paper and help gas the Hun, for it means more gas for Fritz every time you sajr, "Don't wrap it." CULL THE FLOCK At no time has it been more impor tant to cull the flock carefully than now. A good hen is returning, to its owner a good profit ; a poor one, a cor responding greater loss. With the gen eral purpose breeds the pullet year is the most profitable. In fact, it will take two pounds more feed to produce a pound of eggs with hens than it will with pullets. No farmer can afford to V ö V 1, type after she has passed through the gecontl ll)ymg season. N All females which have passed the first year of keep any hen of the general purpose which have passed the first year of laying should be marketed unless they are to be kept for next year's breed ers. If the farmer cannot tell the age of his hens, he can avoid future guess work by putting a ring on the legs of the pullets.

In October . - the poor layers will have yellow shanks, a small dull comb, pin bones close together, and will have com pleted molting. The good layer will be in the molt, will have pale or al most pink shanks, will be ragged in appearance and, if laying, the pin bones will be well spread apart. The good layer, even though in the molt, will start laying just as soon as the early molter. The good layer will have a soft velvety skin while that of the poor layer will be thick and coarse. $ It will pay to cull the flock if the culling is done right. One of Several Theories as To Origin of Wedding Ring I Among several theories as to the origin of the wedding ring is one which is to the. effect that before the time of mints and coinage the gld money in Egypt was made in the form of a ring, usually worn on the finger 1 as a convenient method of carrying and safe-keeping. The men and wom en, therefore, had all their gold or I wealth made into rings, and for the majority of people these rings were j no larger than the plain gold bands of ' today. Thus, when the groom placed the ring on the bride's finger, he meant exactly what the modern service makes him say he did exactly endow his bride with all his worldly goods. Amber and Jade Mines.

"St. Louis?" said the other man; T thought the Ofp- fur business was all done in London." "The war has changed all that," said the fur man; "St. Louis was picked as the new fur market because it is a real center and the furs can be sent there from all parts of the world with the least trouble."

"Barnes" told the farmer to meet him money obtained fi mi the "killing" would be divided. He waited at a St. Louis hotel a wee - after the date of the appointment, but "Barnes" failed to appear.

The farmer could identify none of them. Spoiled Youngsters' Dream of Royal Good Time (JT. LOUIS. 'two little boys with bristly haircuts got off a train at the union ö dpot one day last week.

BOWERS. Avoid crowds, coughs and cowards, but fear neither germs nor Germans! Keep the system in good order, take plenty of exercise In the fresh air and practice cleanliness. Remember a clean mouth, a clean skin, and clean bowels are a protecting armour against disease. To keep the liver and bowels regular and to carry away the poisons within, It is best to take a vegetable pill every other day, made up of May-apple, aloes, jalap, and sugar-coated, to be had at most drug stores, known as Pr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. If there is a sudden onset of what appears like a hard cold, one should go to bed, wrap warm, take a hot mustard f oot-bath and drink copi ously of hot lemonade. If pain develops In head or back, ask. the druggist for Anuric (anti-uric) tablets. These will flush the bladder and kidneys and carry off poisonous germs. To control the pains and aches take one Anuric tablet every two hours, with frequent drinks of lemonade. The pneumonia appears in a most treacherous way, when the influenza victim is apparently recover ing and anxious to leave his bed. In re covering from a bad attack of Influenza or pneumonia the system should be built up with a good herbal tonic, such as Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov ery, made without alcohol from tho roots and barks of American forest trees, or his Irontic (iron tonic) tablets, which can be obtained at most drug stores, or send 10c. to Dr. Pierce's Inva lids' Hotel, Buffalo, N.
