FEDERAL AND STATE GAME LAWS Shooting Must Be Confined toTime During Which It Is Not Prohibited by Either Set of Regulations In making their plans to shoot mi gratory watorfowl, hunters will do well to note the dates of open seasons under both federal and state laws, ac cording to the United States depart ment of agriculture. There Is confu sion in the minds of some sportsmen In regard to the opening of the season when the dates conflict under state and federal laws. The federal law and regulations limit the seasons before and after which no one may shoot these birds. If a state law opens the season later or closes It earlier than the dates prescribed by the federal regulations, the season in that state is just so much further shortened. Special attention is called to the fact that the federal regulations do not authorizo anyone to hunt or kill migratory birds contrary to the state law. In certain states, as for example, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Ken tucky, Missouri and South Dakota, the season for shooting migratory water fowl under the state law would open prior to the date of opening under the federal regulations were it not for the fact that the federal regulations super sede state laws in such case of con flict and prescribe for these states September 1G as the beginning of the open season. Bread Now Made From Wood Claimed to Be Healthful, Weil Tasting, Digestible Food Tho search for now materials to feed the starving stomach of Sweden has, according to Dr. .Tohn W. Book man, a member of the California sec tion of the American Chemical soci ety, again demonstrated that neces sity is the mother of invention. Sweden, located as it is In the pre carious position between the two fight ing groups of nations, has found it hard to obtain its necessities from either of the fighting nations. In times of peace, Sweden has always de pended upon imported wheat and oth er foodstuffs from the East, as well ns from the West, With those imports in many cases completely stopped, Sweden has sought Inside of Its own domain for new materials. Being a country which is well wooded, It is natural that Swedish chemists should turn to the forests in search of a sub stitute. This search has proven suc cessful and a Swedish chemist has devised a method by which wood can be produced in such a condition that it can be used In bread making. In fact, bread baked out of two-thirds wheat or other flour and one-third .spruce Hour Is a healthful, well-tasting and digestible food. Extensive experiments have been carried out to learn the digestibility of this 8pru.ee flour, or cellulose flour, and all of them have proven that ful ly one-third of the cellulose flour is absorbed by the human being. The manufacture of this product is now under way in Sweden in suflicient quantities to supply the needs of Stockholm. It is being sold at the price of about 10 cents per pound, but tho volume of this flour is about throe times that of wheat. Dogs in Holland Have to Work for Food They Eat In Holland the lot of some dogs Is not at all a happy one. Many of them have to work very hard Indeed to keep themselves alive. In many Instances the food they eat is not the same as the American dog has. Some Dutch dogs will eat carrots and turnips In fact, almost anything Uiat Is put before them. They have to draw the vege tables, milk and other tradesmen's carts Jhi order that mynheer may walk alongside at his ease.

Bungalow in India Usually One-Storied House Having a Veranda, Projecting Roof. For the small home no type of build ing makes a wider appeal than the bungalow. The word has been wide ly used to describe the productions of the "home builder and the real estate operator," buildings so apalling that we are apt to forget that the bunga low Is properly a very unusual and in teresting typo of structure and one peculiarly illustrative of the close re lation between climate and architec ture, writes Austin D. Jenkins, In the House Beautiful. "Bungalow is the Hindustani word for house, Anglicized to indicate the typical European dwelling in India, us ually a one-storied house with veran da and projecting roof. The chief pur pose of the Indian dwelling is to keep out the heat and the tropical rains. The typical native bungalow and its English derivative are in arrangement much alike. The walls are of heavy masonry. Both doors and windows are very large, and open on to verandas which keep out the direct rays of the sun and protect the inner rooms from the glare of tropical mid-day. The rooms are arranged in suites, and ev ery possible cross draft is made the most of. Sometimes the roof is of tile, but more frequently of maize thatch, woven on a bamboo frame, and of groat thickness. Tho eves project far beyond the wall line. I Words of Wise Men.

Mary Pickford, the filmStar, has to keep the wolf away from the door with the trifling income of $G(K),000 per an num, and does not have to deduct her expenses. Miss Plckford's Income was revealed through filing of her contract with the Pickford .

Ornamental Lamp-Posts Add to Attractiveness of the Up-to-Date City There is no feature of municipal equipment that adds more to the at tractiveness of a city's appearance than do ornamental street lamp-posts of artistic and appropriate design. Just as the effectiveness or interior decora tions and furnisliinps depend in a large measure upon lighting fixtures, so the beauty of the street can be enhanced or marred by its lights. In each case a satisfactory solution of the lighting problem consists not only in supplying sufficient illumination but also in pro viding lighting equipment that harmon izes with its surroundings and pos sesses a beauty of its own. The old tioie lamp-post in vogue before the days of electricity, writes Thomas J. Davis, in the House Beautiful, fulfilled the second of these conditions, but not the first; for, although the post itself was often a work of art, its feeble oil or gas flame seldom was equal to the task of illuminating the street. On the other hand, the modern overhead arc lamp gives a fairly satisfactory light, but the unsightly poles, ropes, wires and other equipment can scarce ly be called beautiful. Now comes the ornamental street lamp-post, which combines the beauty of one of its pre decessors and the utility of the other. Seaweed Discovered by Japanese as Substitute for Cotton Aiso a Food Something has been heard lately of tho value of seaweed for food. It can also be used, we now learn, says a writer in the Manchester Guardian, as a substitute for cotton. An account of this now textile was given recently by K. Hamada, vice president of the Japa nese house of representatives, at a meeting of the Japanese Federation of Murine Industrial associations. Tho raw material may be obtained from two kinds of seaweed, called In Japanese segumo and gomoguma. These are boiled together in water with wood ashes, and then in water mixed with rice bran. After bleach ing, fibers are extracted which can be utilized for manufacturing purposes. The announcement of this discovery lias awakened no little interest on the Pacific coast of America, where the supply of seaweed is almost inexhaust ible. It is along that coast, too, that some of the investigations were car ried out a few years ago by Japanese scientists, whose explanation that their visit had as its object the study of seaweed was received with considera ble skepticism. fr ft -ft ft ft ft ft ft- -ft ft ft -ft ft I i Mother's Cook Book, ?

RIDDING FARMS OF OLD STUMPS Where Tough Obstacles Are Re moved Land Is Available for Crop Cultivation. THERE IS NO "BEST METHO! iff Pine and Fir Are Very Resistant to Decay and Roots Will Remain Sound for Lifetime Best to Clear Field Gradually. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment o Agriculture.) Stumps occupy valuable land ; foster the growth of weeds, since in order to keep the laud in their vicinity clean much hard labor is necessary ; mar the appearance of otherwise smooth üelds, and hence reduce the selling price of a farm; furnish shelter for harmful Insects and animals; and prevent the eflicient use of modern machinery. Stumps may be removed by burning, by explosives, by mechanical means, or by a combination of any or all these three methods. There is no "best method" of ridding land of stumps, and the selection of a method for their removal should be determined only af ter a consideration of factors In volved. Hardvoods Easier to Remove. Most hardwoods decay so that they can easily be removed within ten years from the time of logging, provided the stumps are kept from sprouting. Most pine and tv stumps, on the other hand, are very resistant to decay. Their main roots will remain sound a lifetime. The small roots of any stump will decay In a few years and with them out of the way the cost of stumping is reduced. Often it is best to stump the field partially rather than to attempt to get all the stumps out at one time. For Instance, In a field where there are a few large stumps scattered about and many smaller ones, it might be advis able at first to remove only the smaller ones. Sometimes just by the removal of a few troublesome stumps that ob struct the way one can do fair work in cultivating a stump field. It is usually considered more ex pensive to remove a stump that has burned to the surface of the ground that a similar sound stump.

When the top of a stump is decayed and the roots are still sound, it is as hard to remove as one burned to the ground. Tap-rooted stumps that cannot be burned in the ground may be pulled entire or shattered with dynamite and pulled, or else blasted clear of the ground by explosives. If blasted, the dynamite would best be placed in a hole bored in the tap root. When an electric blasting outfit is used good work can be done by placing charges on opposite sides of the tap root and firing simultaneously. we must be able to do it without feed STRIVE FOR MORE CHICKENS ing vast quantities of materials that can be used in their present form more Whether War Continues or Not There Will Be Good Demand for Eggs and Poultry. skim milk are not recovered In the Larger poultry yards, better poul- pork.

SOIL BACTERIA FOR LEGUMES IS NEEDED Provide Essential Organisms by Pure Culture Inoculation. Can Be Accomplished by Spreading Soil From Well-Establfshed Field Upon New Land Sour Soils Should Be Given Lime. (Prepared by the United States Depart- J meat of Agriculture.) For the most successful growth of alfalfa, clover, b,eans, peas and other leguminous crops the proper kinds of bacteria should be abundant in the soil. When new legumes are grown for the first time in a locality the soil should be inoculated with the proper bacteria by artificial inoculation. In some regions soils are already sup plied with the proper soil organisms; I Seed From Which Plant on Left Sprang Up Was Inoculated No Treatment Was Given Puny Plant on Right. for example, in many Southern local ities artificial inoculation for cow peas is unnecessary and in sections of the middle West bacteria which thrive on the roots of clover and alfalfa are already present. Artificial Inoculation can be accom plished by spreading soil from a well established field, where the particular legume which is to be grown has been successful, upon the new land to be planted with that legume, and also by the use of pure cultures of the prop er bacteria. The United States de partment of agriculture is prepared to supply enough of the pure culture to inoculate one bushel of seed, and this culture can he obtained in bottles which contain complete directions for use. Application blanks for these cul tures may be obtained from the depart ment at Washington, D. O. Pure cul ture can also be obtained either free or at small cost, from the various ex periment stations. Too much attention cannot be given to the preparation of the field for legu minous crops. In a well-prepared seed bed the young plants get the best start .nd the necessary bacteria will thrive. Sour soils hinder and often entirely prevent the development of the bene ficial soil organisms. To remedy this condition an application of lime is nec essary. Any kind of lime may be used to advantage, but usually finely ground limestone Is applied. When a field Is known to contain the bacteria suitable for a certain legume rrop-for example, alfalfa-shown by ; presence of numerous nodules upon the roots of alfalfa plants growing I there, the soil is desirable for the in oculatlon of other fields upon which alfalfa is to be sown for the first time. Such soil, well sifted, can readily be applied to the new field through the fertilizer attachment on a drill. Two hundred pounds or more of sifted field soil will be sufficient for an acre and .;lng tne soll. Transferring field soil from any considerable distance is ex pensive and subject to the danger of introducing troublesome weeds, insects and plant diseases.
