SAVE BUTTER by not serving too much to each person SERVE INDIVIDUAL PORTIONS. A pound makes 48 one-third ounce pieces. I lolcls Have Learned that there is the least waste from one-third ounce pieces NOT QUITE THE RIGHT IDEA Young Woman't Conception of Military 1 Bimetalism Wn Not All That Might Be Desired. We are beginning to get used to those new gold burs which a careful department of military millinery has allowed second lieutenants to wear in order that they may more readily be distinguished from nattily dressed privates. So many mistakes of that sort were being made by civilians and soldiers of limited experience and so many salutes were wrongly given and withheld that discipline was clearly impaired and morale im periled. Hence the gold bars. But i the gold bars themselves caused mis takes—at first. For instance, there j was the young woman who met for the first time in his uniform the young man who hud been a play- j mate when he was a mere civilian. “My, but you are expensive, Tom,” j she said, with just the proper inflcc- [ tion of flattery; “you’ve got gold bars, not just silver ones like Dick and Harry.” She couldn’t understand why Tom did not respond with that glow which special attention from youth and beauty almost infallibly produces in the military male, or why Dick and Harry so ostentatiously failed to hear the remark or to even look in Tom’s direction. “Oh,” she said presently, "I sup pose it’s like Skull and Bones, and you musn’t mention it.” i BREST NOT DESIRABLE PORT Many Reasons Why It Is Never Likely to Be Made a Point for Pas senger Bteamers- The project of establishing a line of passenger steamers between New York and Brest, France, attractive as it seems when one looks merely al the mnp, by reason of the dist-nce saved, looks very different, when one consults a chart. Chnrles T.nllemand of the French Academy of Science points out in La j | Nature that the approach to Brest is I guarded by many sharp rocks and ' j that the bottom of the sen rises so nl>- j ruplly that a few seconds after J sounding and finding a depth of 300 feet or more the captain may find : him~n • - J »vnat mattes matters worse is that fog covers the coast for an average of one day in eight. For ten days a year the fog remains 24 hours or more and three days a year it re mains more than 48 hours. It is, therefore, never possible to enter Brest harbor without first sighting the coast. SEEMED GOOD OBJECTION. He was one of ttiat tribe of bar bers Dow fast disappearing—or il they're not they should be—insisting I that the customer wishes to have a 1 lot of things done to his head and | countenance that the customer pre- I viously had not suspected he needed. John was no different in his general ideas on the requirements of those I who once mounted his chair than ’ some others, perhaps, but he was ; more persistent, and on this day he was particularly annoying to a tired business man who wished a shave ! and nothing else, and above all did not wish to be asked questions nor tc I indulge in any kind of conversation. The t. b. m. is noted for his polite ' ness and consideration of all those about him, however, and he had an swered courteously, “No” and “I think not, today,” to all of John’i importunities to hove a massngc, a haircut and to he manicured. But at a last resort John bethought himself , to ask, just ns the customer was about to escape from his clutches, “Want to have your head washed out ,today ?” | “No,” responded the t. b. m. firm ly, “it’s too hard to put it together again.”—lndianapolis News. i WAS NOT PRIZE HE SOUGHT “Baa" Made by Brltlah Airplane Wt* Not Have Much Effect In m Deciding War. Prom an airplane all that appeal*,, to be submarines is not necessarily submarines, as a British aviator ro* eently discovered to his chagrin. Fly* ing high over the sea looking for til# dark shadows in the deep that told him the submersible was there, perceived suddenly his prize. Lon g> and round it was, presumably somo 150 feet beneath the surface. With a thrill of pride he swooped down, preparing his depth bomb as he did so. Hovering directly abovs the “sub” he loosed his explosive and watched it sink. A few minutes later the sea geyseved from the deep shock. He cheered lustily, for it is a sourc* of great joy in tlie Royal (lying corps when one of the birdmen “gets” a sub. He could see the T7-bont rolling ifc d stress and rising toward the sur* face through the dim, green uater. lie rose a trifle higher and wthted with machine gun ready to dispose of any defenders should the boat b 4 ready to show fight. What was his surprise a moment later when the U-boat “plopped” on the surface and turned out to be a whale! The shock had killed it. Since that day several inrtances of the kind have been reported, th« whales from above looking beyond a certain depth exactly like a U-boat. USE FOR ENGLISH SPARROWS Food Experts Declare the Bird N Foundation for a Most Delicious Pie. Blackbird pics have been heralded In 60ng and fable since the beginning of time, but no hero was ever more greatly surprised when confronted by the four nnd twenty blackbirds of legendary fame than were the horns economics experts of the food admin istration when confronted with spar row pie the other day when gucsta at a luncheon served them in Washing ton by the Philadelphia I-cdgcr. Tha birds were caught in the suburbs of i Philadelphia by James Hunt, Sr., of the city, who has started a movement to encourage the catching nnd eating of English sparrows in this country. Sparrow pic is a staple dainty. In this country English spar rows arc considered a pest because they destroy grain, and therefore their bodies mnkc clenn, wholesome? food. Special traps have been vised by which several dozen spar rows may be caught at once, cither by day or night. Sparrows arc easily prepared for cooking by a simple cleaning process of cutting away! be necks and legs and peeling the skin off, feathers and all. Sparrows arc easily prepared for cooking by the domestic economy ex perts—and who could be better judges ? NEW TYPE OF COOKER IS OLD. Out in Denver, Colo., a new typ» of fireless cooker has been put on the market by J. E. Cook which is frank-* ly an improvement on an idea 200 years old, snvs Popular Science monthly. It is called a pressure cook er and is so small that it may ba packed away in your trunk when yoA. go away to the country, or in the* automobile when yon contemplate a long trip. It is simply a steam-tight cooker, complete in itself, without the usual box-contnincr. It is made of aluminum, so that it is light in weight and convenient to hnndlc, as well as strong enough to resist the interior 200-pound steam pressure upon which the cooking depends. Safety devices are provided on the cover to take care of the surplus * steam. The safety valve is made separable, so thut it may l>© easily cleaned and kept in condition. The steam gauge is calibrated to 30 pounds on a dial that can enf'.'A' be read. When the food has been in the cooker long enough, a thumb-screw of the pctcock is turned to release I tl] e steam so that cooing will stop 1 . i SPEED UP. ' Proprietor—Whnt’s the trouble?
