Take It from me: Mighty1 few men are as bold and uncompromising 1a their own homes as they are down town. The recall may be all right, but -what we really need' Is a measure to keep grandstanders from getting out on the stump and shouting, "I srtand for the people." The greatest trouble I have In my reform work Is that the people will not take advice. They are always loaded and Insist on giving me about i nineteen yards of it. " ji Jl What has become of the good old fashioned neighbor woman who uscu to borrow eggs when they were thir ty cents a dozen and pay them back when they were twelve? Jl J V While I talk a whole lot about my church and my party and my lodge, 1 will admit that I get Just as sore as any of the other fellows when things don't go my way. 1 will go . -farther and say that It I had any Idea a little more howling and kick ing would do one any good I would jit ones proceed to go to bat.' But I notice when I do go to hat that my average Is aely over .122. The fol lows listen to my roar patiently, but after I am through they walk away and smile and proceed to do the very thing I didn't want them to do. 1 lave predicted a number of times when things went against my v;ny f thinking that it would bust up - the party. But It didn't. I have . also told the brethren on numerous occasions that If they did a certain thing In lodge. It would end the lodge. But again was I disappointed. The certain thing was done and the lodge not only continued tc exist but actually flourished In spite of my prophecy. All of us bank too much on the little "I" in our system. By using it freely we can make a moun tain out of a molehill any old day. mat same 1 appears unpij uig iu ns, but when the other fellows get tuny they shoot It so full of holes tn two minutes that It sinks like a chunk of lead. Eo that's another -worry we ought to forget. The church . and the party and the lodge will go on In spite of us. jl Jl 1 have watched the thing a long 'time and the more I have watcbeu the more I become Impressed with vtaa Idea that It is money that makes the mare go except where love Is .

Jl Jt I always notice that when I get out my harpoon and begin to sharpen on the polpt, the other fellows do the same thing, and most of them can throw harder and straighter than I can. Jl Jt Some people are so thrifty that they refuse to give anything to the churches on the theory that tbey can do their own praying. .'. Every town has Its biggest liar, but some of the champions have lots of competition and only hold on by tho skin of their teeth. Jl Jt , There are lots of ways to waste time foolishly, but singing campaign songs has all other schemes beaten a country block, Jt Jl I once knew a fellow who In the flower of his manhood had a good business started and bright projects for the future. But he got intcrsstod in politics and soon came to the ex clusion that unless he got Into the game the country waB a goner, lie began to neglect his business to go out and battle for freedom. H would trust bis moBt Important transactions to hired help in order to have mora time to swing his battle ax. His pusi ness began to droop and fade away, and in a little while he bad no busi ness. But he was "ported." He could talk on everything that ever came up In the realmn of politics. He abused and vilified people because they didn't see things as he did. He caled men who had been his friends and neighbors grafters and yeggmen because they would not Join him In his silly crusades. His eyes took on a wild look and people begun to shun him. His credit was no good at the banks, at the stores or any place else. He hammered away In a harmless way for a few years and finally got an office. tfha populace triumphantly elected him president of the down and out club. That's what will become of you If you waste all your time trying to save the coun try. , ' Jl Jl A friend takes me to task and tells me I would feel better If I would think all men honest Instead of Imagining that most men art crook ed. I used to try that scheme and will admit for argument's sake that I did feel better, but It kept me broke all the time. . The next thing congress will have to do will he to enact a law to sup press weather prophets. They are getting so numerous tbey are Inter fering with honest work and threaten to take the country. jl Jt Far be It from me to defend Alice for smoking cigarettes, but I ) insist that she looks better with a cigarette than she would with an old, dirty, toul-smeillng cob pipe In her mouth. And while on the sub ject,, I also wish to state as my candid opinion that this agitation la the fin est line of advertising the cigarette manufacturers ever put out When the truth cornea out It will be found that Alice doea not smoke cigarettes.

Freitoy, Moo sup, Conn. - a - - g - g - Wheat Farmer and the Miller Flour Maker's Relation to the Grower of Grain . By EMMET V. HOFFMAN, Ente.nilse. The beginning of wheat culture Is hidden by the mist of centuries. In dia, Egypt, Greece, grew wheat and used It for bread. It was embalmed with the mummies in the pyramids. Poets have sung Its praise and war riors have marched and fought by Its strength. Wheat as a food has been symbolic of conquest of victory. The greatest human development baa taken place among wheat eaters. Brain and brawn have reached greater develop ment where wheat la a portion of the diet. . '. Milling, the art of preparing whet for food, is older than hlatory. The first mill was a pair ef stones, one hollowed out to bold the grains, the other a aort of pestle with which to crush It. Women were the millers, In fact, women did about all of the useful work In those good days of the golden past the men were busy fighting. As the art of milling developed man assumed charge. The miller haa a place in song and sttn-y. He stands for joimy ana thrift, with a slight leaning towards well, getting all that belongs to him. The farmer and miller rtand In the forefront of useful occupation producers of the staff of life bread. And whr should they not bef En gaged In the production of the most Important human food article, this nrofession may well be ranked In the forefronts, of the tiseful and honor able callings. With nature's most Important cereal they produce with the assistance of natural forces, '.he most Important, most nutritious and palatable human food. That is pure, white wheat flour. ' Wheat reduced to flour and baked Into bread Is "the most wholesome. nutritious and palatable of ah foods. Bread made of the best quality of white flour contains all the ele ments essential to human life. The manufacturer of flour Is clear ly placed In two departmontsr-first the purchasing of wheat, such sb 1b suited to the requirements of the trade, and, stcond, the' grinding of the wheat into flour; the separation nf the bran and foreign matter from the palatable, nutritious middlings. or white portion of the wheat berry. The present system consists or gradually red icing the whea: and separating tie vurious cements as the nrocess of separation takes place This Is accomplished by a series of steel rolls set In suitable frames be tween which the grain is gradually crushed. The rolls . that grind the wheat revolve at different speeds in each set, thus causing a tearing or shredding of the wheat rather than crushing. The first reduction barely splits the berry along tne crease and breaks it Into a very few pieces. This mass called "stock, Is sent, by means of elevators to "scalDers"which separate the "crease dirt" loosened by the breaking of the berry and also such small par ticles of flour as may have been loosened from the rest of the stock and send the flour into low grade product. The "stock" goes on to the next ut of rolls where It Is again reduced the "middlings," sharp, granulated particles, are separated, -while tne "tock" Is returned to other rolls for further reduction ; the process being repeated until full reduction has wn arcnmnllshed and various ele ments of the wheat separated and "treated" on appropriate machinery until hv selection and elimination nothing but the pure white, granules of which white flour is made goes into the higher grade product. Portions of the berry contain more gluten and less starch than otters- these are used In making oi pat ent" flour, while the more etareny portions go under different branos of lower grade. The Interested reader will now that with modern methods separa tions of the various part are grad ually effected so that each can be Aa Ola Settler Oosw. Salomon Trlbnne: George A.

These wero all present for the funeral. Three sons preceded the fsther to g - 7rgFg'a - fl - ag - a a:aarg5 appropriately treated, while the old way crushed or ground everything together, and attempted to make the separations afterwards. And, here, a few words on white flour: ' It has been claimed that white flour Is deficient In some of the most valuable Ingredients. Mils Is not true. White flour contains all the nutritive elements of wheat except some phosphates, dextrine and augar which are contained in the germ and immediate envelopes. These ele ments cannot be saved, either in white flour or In graham flour or in any of the various cereal foods for the simple reason that they will not "keep" when exposed to the atmos phere after being crushed by the grinding process. The best cereal product on the market Is a high grade of white flour. The bread, properly made from It, contains the maximum amount of well balanced nutritive material. It is nearly a balanced dietary for man. It la the cheapest source of proteid material that Is known, and protein la the most essential part of man's diet.and ordinarily It Is the most expensive part. The higher grade the flour the more nutriment It yields to the body per pound, aa high grade flour when made Into light bread Is most completely digested and assimilated. The popular fallacy that whole wheat flour contalna more nutriment than white flour has caused many victims to Inflict upon themselves a disagreeable substance, thinking that it was for their good health. By chemists' analysis whale wheat flour, contains more nitrogenous material, but by human digestive analysis it has been found that from the white flour bread there is a greater amount of proteid material available. In ! other words, the body is unable to make use if the type of proteid that Is contained in whole wheat flour, to the same extent that It is of the proteid material contained in high grade white flour. This isynot to can;lemn the era of whole wheat flour by those wbo like it, but la is merely to Inform them that '.i Is not worth more than high patent flour. Graham flour, or flour in which the hulls of the wheat remain, is lax- atlve In Its effect, because the hulls are foreign material and the diges tive organs, in order to rid them selves of this foreign material, create an Increased secretion and peristal sis. This may be advantageous to some, but for little children and adults of weak or sentitlve digestion it Is distinctly Injurious, frequently resulting In inflammation of the mu cous membrane of the bowels. Ideal bread Is reared from high grade flour by an accurate method. and Is when finally done the most es sential article of ordinary diet. It has been known, in a general sort of way and for some time, that Kansas wheat is "stronger" than that of any other state and that becaus-s of this fact It is in heavy demand by millers for mixing with wheat from other sections so as to tone it up to the requirements of the up-to-date palate. We did not know, however, j in what this superior quality or 'strength" consisted or why Kansas wheat is so highly valued. The general statement that Kansas wheat Is of the best Is true but there are many varieties of Kansas wheat, tome of which are better than others. What the farmers of this state need to know Is not so much as to which wheat will produce the heaviest yield as to know which wIU produce the heaviest yield of the best quality. And then there has always been a wrong Impression aa to the processes of manufacture and 4s to the value of the coarser products of wheat for human qoneumptlon.. Most people thnk that a consderable portion of the moat valuable part of the wheat berry, la allowed to go Into the bran while leaat nutritive parte are sold aa flour. Many believe that brown bread and certain breakfast foods are highly valuable because they re tain this portion of the berry la their composition. the spirit world, two having died In infancy and one at the ago of II.
