Mother Never Really Carried
Market Basket, It Is Declared.
Times have changed. Johnny and
Mary go seldom nowadays to the gro

Mother rings them up and delivers her
order by telephone. But—is the dif

Kven Before Days of Telephone
Housewife Seldom Went to the
Grocery or the Butcher Shop.
A voice of protest rises in the East.
There, as elsewhere, sundry lecturers
have been talking to women's clubs
about the high cost of living. Said
one of them:
"Holierwives could* rcducc the cost

This is typical remark.
"Our mothers and our grnmlmoth

And they used to carry It home with
The conclusion Is obvious, says the
Indianapolis Xews. Our mothers and
our grandmothers, paying these daily
visits to the grocer and butcher, were
able to buy seasonable products—and
the best of the products—at lowest
prices. They made their own selec

long enough. As a matter of fact, our
mothers and grandmothers did very
little marketing in person. The tele
phone in their day was not used, to
be sure. There were few telephones
to be used. But 30 years ago—and

the marketing was done by sending
Johnny or Mary to the grocer or the
butcher. And many of us who are
something over thirty and not yet
turned sixty, regardless of sex, can
find without effort, in the depths of
memory, personal evidence to substan

were we brought complain!ngly in
from play to "go to the grocer's?"
And at the tender age of seven or
eight or nine, did we do much select

order? Very little, as we recall it.
On the contrary, we took what the
grocer gave us and hurried home with
the purchase, making sure both com

has boon greatly overrated, according
to Everett F. Phillips, who is the
government expert on bee culture.
He says that this insect really has no
adaptability at all, but a wonderfully
perfected instinct. Success in bee
keeping, therefore, depends upon study
ing the bee and giving it exactly what
Its imperious Instincts require. For
example, the space between the wall of
a hive and the comb in which the
honey is to be placed must be exactly
a quarter of an inch. If it is more
the bees will store honey in the space,
and if It is less they will seal It closed.
In either case the hive must be broken
open to get the honey.

A snlad is a fine dish to prepare
from left overs as fruit, vegetables,
meat, fish or fowl can all be used in a

onion juice, corn, tomatoes or celery
with a salad dressing will make a good
combination. Any small amounts of
cream may be used as cake filling for
shortening for all kinds of hot breads
and cakes as well as puddings and if
a larger amount is at hand may be
whipped into a small pat of butter
which will be a most appetizing mor
sel, especially for an invalid.
Small bits of left-over bacon stirred
into a hot breakfast cereal and put
into a mold may be fried for breakfast
the next morning.

A person In health usually enjoys
any good, well prepared food, but one
who is ill, who must eat
re in
whether it is desired or
not, is quite another
problem for the house
mother and nurse.
A trained nurso ap
preciated the importance
of serving all food in
just as attractive a way as is possible
and it is lier work to attend to such
service, but often the overworked
mother finds it necessary to be both
nurse and housekeeper and she also
must know how.
The daintiness of the tray and its
accessories as well as the food served
is of the first importance. Alight tray,
large enough to hold all necessary
equipment and one easily cleaned,
should be chosen. Spotless linen, the
prettiest china arranged to look well,
adds not a little to the Invalid's pleas
ure. A few flowers or one laid across
the napkin or placed In a small vase
is always a source of delight to the
eye, or when these are not obtainable
a spray of rose geranium will add to
the beauty of the service. In case of
contagious diseases, paper plates, cups,
napkins may be purchased and after
ward burned, with the lace paper dol
lies which may be purchased in pack
ages, the beauty of the tray need not
be entirely sacrificed to satisfy.
After the liquid foods which are
the first foods for the very ill, comes
the semi-solid foods which are cus
tards, eggs, jollies, fruits and cereals.
Cereals should be subjected to long,
slow cooking to be safe food for an
invalid or children. Milk toast is an
other semi-solid food which is usually
One of the important points to re
member in serving an Invalid is to
have all hot foods hot, and cold foods
cold. Often a long trip upstairs will
cool the food. It should be carefully
covered, or placed over hot water, to
reach the patient In good condition.
A combination of fruit with cereal
is particularly wholesome and appe
tizing to an Invalid. Prunes cooked
until soft, then rubbed through a sieve
and served in a small mound in the
center of the cereal, makes a whole«

Artillery Expense of Modern Army
Corps $820,000 a Day.
Outlay in Gun Metal and Powder la
Heavy and Vast Amount of Ma
terial Is Required for
the Trenches.
When it is remembered that there
are today under arms more than 24,
tX)0,000 soldiers in the European war.
the immensity of the task of keeping
them supplied with the munitions
with which they wage war will ap
pear. It has been estimated that it
costs approximately $100 to outfit a
soldier. Of this !?25 goes for a gun
and $35 for his 1.000 rounds of car
tridges. Tiie average life of a uniform
A 75-centimeter gun can fire about
400 projectiles a day. Each of these
projectiles costs approximately $6.
Counting this and the depreciation of
the gun, which is particularly rapid,
the daily outlay for its operation
amounts to $2,700. It is estimated that
the 120 75-coniimeter cannon in an
army corps, tired all day, cost in mu
nitions and depreciation $320,000. In
addition to this, each army corps has
about forty pieces of heavy artillery.
Explosives and depreciation for a sin
gle day's work for them totals $500,
000, making the total artillery expense
of an army corps i?S20,G00 a day.
If the outlay in gun metal and pow
der is heavy, It is no more so than the
outlay for materials demanded by the
present necessities of trench warfare.
An oflicer who has studied this phase
of the present war carefully says that
to put a trench In a state fit for occu
pation in winter requires 1,250,000
running feet of 3 by 3 timber, 36,000
running feet of corrugated iron, 6,250,
000 sandbags weighing 1,000 tons and
2-1.000 standards and pickets to the
mile. In addition to this, 000 miles
of barbed wire has to bo used, weigh
ing 110 tons. When one stops to re
call the hundreds of miles of trenches
which stretch across Europe in difi
ferent directions and how often sec
tions of these trenches have to be re«
built, he can gain some idea of the
tremendous amount of material re
quired in their outfitting.
Another picture of the vastness of
the munitioning trade and the Im
mensity of the task of keeping the
armies in the field and in fighting con
dition may be had from the statement
that there are now more than 4,000 con
trolled munition plants in Great Brit
ain alone. Of these 19 out of 20 nev
er produced war materials before the
war broke out. They employ nearly
3,000,000 men and nearly 750,000 wom
en. The vastness of the industry in
England is not out of proportion to
that in Franco. Although Germany
holds 70 per cent of France's coal and
some SO per cent of Us iron, France
has been aide, by the opening up of
new furnaces and by immense Impor
tations of ore and pig metal, largely
to overcome tills handicap.
"The Grape of Brazil."
A notable feature of gardens within
a certain area about Rio de Janeiro is
the jabotieaba tree. The delicious fruit
is often known as "the grape of Bra
zil" on account of its appearance, and,
as described in a bulletin of the United
States department of agriculture, is
conspicuous from its peculiar habit of
growing directly upon the bark, not
only of the small limbs but even of
the trunk and exposed roots. The tree,
growing to a height of !55 to 40 feet,
brandies freely close to the ground,
spreading into a symmetrical leafy top
of groat beauty. The flowers, produced
singly and In clusters, often cover the
entire bark above the ground. The
fruit develops rapidly to a diameter of
half an inch to an inch and a half, has
a deep maroon-purple color, is covered
with a thick, rather tough skin charged
with coloring matter and much tannin,
and contains the translucent juicy
pulp, having an agreeable vinous fla
vor suggestive of the Muscatine grape.
One to four flattened oval seeds, a
quarter of an inch long, are inclosed
in this pulp. The fruit tempts one to
eat indefinitely, the complaint being
that it is impossible to satisfy one's
appetite on jaboticabas.
Queer Sort of Butter.
A queer sort of butter Is obtained in
Trinidad, where cows and cream are
scarce. This butter is the boiled-down
fat of a bird called tiie guacliaro. The
Illustrated World says that this bird
lives in the darkest caves, and seldom
Is seen in the daylight. The young
birds are extremely plump and from
them is obtained rich fat, the natives'
very good substitute for butter. The
birds are taken from their nests when
two or three weeks old. Alter tlioy
are killed, tlu are put on to boil, not
In water, but in their own fat. The
natives experience some diiiiculty in
getting at the nests of the guacliaro,
for they must creep through caves and
wade through stagnant pools to reach
their prey. The lull-grown guacliaro is
so timid that no one ever has been able
to photograph a living specimen.

Encyclopedia of the Literature of
China, Covering 28 Centuries la
Remarkable Production*
The Chinese department of the Brit
ish museum library contains a single
work which occupies no fewer than.
5,020 volumes. This wonderful pro
duction of the Chinese press was pur
chased some years ago for $7,500, and
Is one of only a very small number of
copies now in existence.
It is an encyclopedia of the litera
ture of China, covering a period of 28
centuries. It owes its origin to the
literary proclivities of the Emperor
Kang-lie, who reigned from 1002 till
1722. In the course of liis studies of
tiie ancient literature of ids country
Kang-he discovered thut extensive cor
ruptions had been allowed to creep in
to the modern editions, and conceived
the idea of having the text of the or
iginals reproduced and preserved in
'an authorized form.
This was a nighty conception, truly,
and In the execution It remains unique
down to the present time. For the
purpose of carrying out the work,
Kang-he appointed a commission of
learned men to select and collate the
writings to be reproduced, aud em
ployed the Jesuit missionaries to cast
copper types with which to execute
the printing. The commission was oc
cupied for 40 years in its great task.
Before the work was completed
Kang-he died, but he had provided that
his successor should see the book com
pleted, aud he faithfully carried out
liis trust. The book Is arranged In
six divisions, each dealing with a par
ticular branch of knowledge.

New Idea of Primitive Man.
A now idoa of primitive man was
put forward by an Irish professor re
cently. He states that the direct an-1
cestors of primitive man never went,
on all-fours, had lived in trees, and,,
by climbing up and down the trunks,
cultivated the upright habit of the hu-i
man race. He points out that the fore
limb was never used only as a sup-'
port for the body. It seems qulte
credible, however, that they may have
gone on three logs, using one as ai
hand when required, and this might!
account for the general use of the
right hand in man.
