Important Bulletin.
Have a care, ye epicures.
There is no simple test for disting
uishing between edible and poison
ous mushrooms, according to spe
cialists of the Department of Agri
culture. For example, the common belief
that any mushroom may be eaten
with safety it the skin can be peeled
readily from the cap is quite un
founded. Peeling of this character
Is possible with many poisonous spe
cies. The presence or Insects on mush
rooms, too, is no proof that they are
safe for human consumption. In
sects infect some of the most puis
onous as well as some of the best
specie of fungi. Again, there Is a
common belief that If poisonous
mushrooms are soaked or boiled In
salt water they will do no harm. This
Is a dangerous and unfounded sup
position Offers Dependable Data.
The only safe mushrooms to eat
are those which are gathered by a

The Illustrations and text of this

point out. however, that It Is most
Important to pick only those which
It is absolutely certain are harmless.
No attempt should be made to gath
er rare forms or those species which
are not readily recognizable.
The most common edible mushroom
is known to scientists as Agarlcus

cultivated commercially, but Is wide
ly distributed, and is abundant in the

Gills Distinguishing Feature.
This type of mushroom u readily
recognized, but there Is some possi
bility that It may be confused with
an Amanita, of which there are sev
eral varieties, most of them extremely
poisonous. The risk of mistaking the
common mushroom for one of these
may be avoided If the fungus Is not
picked until the gills are pink or turn
ing to brown. The gills of the Aman
ita remain white. These poisonous
fungi, however, may be distinguished
from edible mushrooms with white
gills by the presence of a veil or of a
volva, a membraneous envelope or
ssck which completely surrounds the
plsnt In the joung state.
After this volva breaks away a part
remains on the top of the cap around
Its margin as scales and as a broken
cup at the base of the stem.
Certain edible varieties do have
such volvas, but, as they are rare, and
the poisonous species common and
dangerous, the only safe plan la to
leave alone all the fungi which pos
sess this feature.
In addition to describing the, varie
ties of edible mushrooms, the bulletin

Curious Expedients Adopted to Cut
LONDON, April 3 (by mall), The
circulation departments of news
papers In this country are putting
on the reverse English. They are
fighting with as much determination
to keep their circulations down as In
normal times they struggle to ex
pand them. Many curious expedients
are being adopted with the purpose
of reducing newspaper and periodical
circulations and also with the hope
that these reductions may be ac
complished without greatly reducing
the pulling power of newspaper ad
vertising The Times, which at various epochs
In its career has sold all the way
from Id up to several times that
figure, has rather taken a lead In
the campaign for higher prices and
restricted circulations It Increased
Its own Drlce from Id to H4d, and
when this failed materially to affect
the circulation, increased it again to
Id The Times adopted the policy of
saving paper by reducing circulation
rather than by drastically cutting the
paper to a small number of pages

narlly sixteen pages and occasional
supplements When the price was
raised to l'ia, tne paper was re
duced to fourteen pages, and con
tinues at this size under the 2d.
schedule The Times management
has notified the public very frankly
that there will probably be other
Increases of price very shortly, and
even Intimated that the price might
ultimately go as high as Td.
Along with Its Increase of price
the Times has urged Its readers to
form "Times clubs:" that Is. to get
a number of people or families to
agree to use a single copy of the
paper among them.
What Other Papers Have Done.
The old Morning Post was only
printed In ten pages and sold for Id;
Its price has been Increased to 2d,
and the paper reduced to eight pages
The Dally Telegraph sold for Id
when It was a sixteen page paper. It
was reduced to fourteen and then to
twelve pages, but the ortee has not
yet been raised. The Dally Graphic
continues to furnish normally twelve
pages for Id: the Dally Mirror has
been raised from Hd to Id for twelve
pages, and the Dally Sketch also
frum Md to Id for twelve pages.
The Dally Mall, credited with the
greatest circulation in the kingdom,
reduced Its size from twelve pages to
eight, and then to six. and Increased
the price from Md to Id At present
it Is providing eight pages for the
Id price.
The Dally News has been reduced
from eight to six, and then to four
pages, the price remaining unchanged
at 4d The Daily Chronicle, start
Ing with ten pages, was cut to eight
and then to six pages, but the price
remains unchanged at Hd. The same
Is true of the Dally Express.
Of course, every newspaper mant
agement would be Immensely pleased
it tne economy of print paper could
be effected by Inducing people to stop
buying some other paper, and It Is
better than others. But on the whole
the tone of their pleadings Indicates
that they are thoroughly sincere
about wanting the public to get along
with fewer papers.
SS miles high, or put OH Man Midas,
Cheek on Waste Paper.
No wonder. Mr. Lloyd-George at
one fell swoop lopped oft half the
print paper supply of the country.
The most Insistent regulations have
been Issued to prevent waste paper.
For example, the big bills of posters
that news agents carry announcing In

edition have been practically elimi
nated. Their elimination not only
saves a good deal of paper directly,
but It also dulls the edge of the pub

Along with the struggle to reduce
circulations has gone a high develop
ment of the noble art of newspaper
condensation on the editorial side.
This, In turn, enables the newspaper
reauer 10 save a good deal of time,
for the predlgestlon of the daya news
at the copy desk Is carried to such
point that the reader's Imagination
has to supply a good deal more than
It formely did. One Is tempted to
wish that some highly esteemed
American newspapers might at least
have the experience of being compell
ed to crowd their material into half
the accustomed space for a while.
They would know something about

Jfevr Snaday Venture.
The end Is not yet reached In thl.
business of reducing sizes and circu
lations and of increasing prices. A
few weeks ago a new Sunday morning
newspaper appeared In London, rather
pretentious In form and contents, but
Its origin and backing being a good
deal of mystery. Possibly because
some of the opinions It expressed
were not wholly agreeable to certain
elements, there was Instant protest
against the attempt to establish a
new paper at this time, and the ques
tlon aa even raised In the House of
Commons as to whether the govern
ment had the power, or had attempted
to use It. to prevent this new paper
".... uiuugni out. Tne explanation

The British publisher expressed the
opinion at the time when the govern
ment reduced the Importation of print
paper that the effect wnuM h .om.
what to ease the print paper situation
in the United States by making a
corresponding Increase In the supply
available there.
The French newspapers have been
cut down much more drastically even
than the English. In both countries
there Is frequent suggestion of the
possibility that newspapers, except
as sort of semi-official bulletins, will
not be able to survive at all If the war
lasts tw o or three years longer. Fan
ciful essays and editorials appear not
Infrequently, dealing with the con
ditions that would prevail In a mod
ern community If suddenly It found
Itself without newspapers or news.
American Papers Bulkier.
On the whole the per capita con
sumption of print paper in Europe is
vastly less than In the United States.
American newspapers in general are
very much more bulky than those of
Europe. This Is particularly true of
the American Sunday paper Morn

Revolution in Russia Pots Four
Possibilities Out of It.
The war has made marriage a dif
ficult problem for the Prince of
Wales, says the Kansas City SUr.
Three years ago, bad he been oia
enough and' of that temperament, he
might have picked out any one of
nearly a dozen princesses.
The revolution In Russia haa de
prived him of one choice, if not of
four, for Nicholas baa four daughters
of marriageable age or approaching
It, and It was supposed that one of
them might have become the bride of
the Prince of Wales. Howevsr. a
youpg woman who cannot remain a
princess In her own country Is not
likely to become a Queen of England.
There Is a limit even to romance.
So the prince, looking about Dim
like another King Cophetua for a
consort, surveys a field that haa al
ready been swept by Jthe hall of war.
Va lnirr miT ha turn hlS erea to
Oirainr. nor to Austria, anu. al
though romance may nave naa one
of her vestals in Turkey, the eye
may not rest here.
Bulgaria Beyend Pale.
Bulgaria Is also reckoned as beyond
the pale. In Spain the princesses.
when they reach the age of romance,
r not to be thought of. because
they happen to be Roman Catholics.
The same objection holds with regard
to Italy. '
There are no princesses m rorxu-
gaL In fact, with Germany and Rus
sia left out of account, -mere remain
only two princesses In . Europe who
might properly be considered likely
victims of romance. One la the eld
est daughter of the King of Ron
mania, who Is said to be as beautiful
aa any other prospective bride la said
to be.
Although Roumanla has been one
of the entente allies In the war, and
although the princess Is reported to
have had other suitors namely, the

will be obliged to marry ordinary
British girls. Some of them have
done It before. Henry IV and Edward
IV and Richard ni and Henry VII all
married English women. Even Henry
VIII had no fewer than four English
wives In his unparalleled collection.
The present Queen of England Is an
English princess. In fact, the notion
that English kings should wed for
eigners Is a Hanoverian principle, and
waa foreign to England before the
Hanoverian dynasty reached the Eng

subscribe to It, and we have had the
instance In modern times of Lord Fife
marrying her granddaughter, and the
late Duke of Argyll becoming hus

TdRONTO. June H. There Is not
the slightest doubt that Canada could
supply a large force of competent In
structors to assist In training the
American army.
The Dominion government already
haa loaned several officers for the
purpose, and the possibility of more
extensive assistance has been discuss
ed freely In military circles In this
A case In point Is that of Major
Morrison, of Toronto, formerly com
mander of the Eaton machine gun
battery, who haa returned from Eng
land, following the breaking up of
the battery into drafts, and resigned
irom me canaaian forces. Major Mor
rison Is reluctant to discuss at the
present time an offer which haa been
made to htm from United 8tates army
sources, but according to report he
haa been Invited to accept appoint
ment aa colonel In the military serv
ice of the republic
Ceaaerlptlea Law Assured.
In estimating the Canadian training
force which would be available for
work In the United States camps,
there Is danger of attaching too much
Importance to the fact that Canadian
camps are now largely empty, with
only about 30,000 C E. F. troops still
In the Dominion, and some of the In,
struetors are Idle. Despite sugges
tions to the contrary, conscription
will be enacted In Canada and
will be enforced In order to Insure
adequate re-enforcements for the di
visions at the front.
There are great difficulties to be
surmounted, and there may be delays,
but English-speaking Canada is going
to see conscription through, and the
force raised by selective draft will
have to be trained by Canadian In
structors. Then, too. It Is expected
that a large number of recruits for
the Canadian army perhaps aa many
as" 10,000 men will be secured among
British subjects resldsnt In the
United States. Arrangements have
been completed to receive them at the
principal Canadian mobilization can
tera. Canada's military camps may
not be filled, but by early fall, at the
latest, there will again be a large
number of men In training. -Even at
the present time there Is a small but
steady Increment to the forces In
training, and during the latter hall
of May more than 4,000 men were ac
cepted for oversea service.
It Is true that the number of Cana
dian troops at the front la not likely
to be Increased to any large extent,
but the training of reserves will oc
cupy a large part of this country's In
structional organization.
Surplus of Officers In England.
There la an Important potential
source of Instructors In the surplus of
Canadian officers In England. After
organization of the Fifth division for
service at the front, there remained
In England a large number of senior
officers, many In excess of require
ments, who could notbe employed,
as there are few demands from
France for officers of higher rank
than lieutenant. Additional Canadian
troops will be sent forward only aa
reserves are actually needed, drafts
being dispatched across the channel
In charge ot lieutenants-
In one British camp are no less
tnan 100 officers from western Can
ada In excess of present anticipated
requirements. It haa been decided
that such surplus officers must elect
within one month whether they will
revert In rank to that of lieutenant
or return to Canada. All have had ex
perience In preparing combatant units
for service under the very latest meth
ods of warfare.
Then. too. there are the returned
men. Including those In rank from
lieutenant colonels, who have com-

PITTSBURGH. June 14. When aged
Henry Dennlson, recluse, who cam
to the United States and the world
eighty years ago. decided to make
love to pretty -Nellie Richardson,
Pittsburgh hotel cashier, be did not
kiss her.
He also did not: Squeeze her hand,
write mushy letters, or talk "goo-goo
But he did (so she says): Take her
to his library and let her count over
Sl.400,000 In perfectly good coins and
bonds, and then take her to his gar
den and show her: Rows of potatoes,
rowa of onions, and slathers of other
garden truck. Then he said (so ahe
says). "Marry me."
"I will." Nellie says she replied: but
Henry forgot, and now Nellie wants
1500,000 as heart halm.
A Jury some time ago gave her a
salve of 1170,000, but the court aet It
aside as excessive. This time Nellie
wants aa much as ahe can get. Henry
