Destruction of a German submarine by the American steamer Kroonland wag leportcd by the merchantman upon her arrival in an American harbor. Her officcis refused to discuss the encounter except to say that by agile maneuvering the Kioonland managed to lain and sink the U-boat shortly .after two of the underwater boats had attacked the merchantman, one from either side. The Kroonland lost 41 blade from her propeller. An American citizen who' arrived in the United States on June 4 an nounced he had been infomed by one of the Kroonland's officers at a Brit ish portthat two torpedoes, aimed ..r.i two directions, each struck the Kioonland a glancing blow while the vessel was-on her last eastward voy age. No mention was made by the American traveler of the sinking of a U-bcat. A crew of American naval gunners was aboard the vessel. She reported no submarines sighted on her return trip. m i THE CONVICT PROBLEM. enough, but bchind,tho words was the sinister order, "to kill." Germany wants no more prisoners to feed or to starve, as Is more likely and so dead Englishmen are better than live ones, even when the latter are hors du combat. The order was virtually one of un compromising and wholesale slaugh ter, and It serves to show that Ger many has no food to spare and no men to giiard more prisoners. In his second speech the kaiser gave this diabolical command: '" "Germans are to hate all British so long as any Englishman in left to hate," Was there ever given out to a peo ple a more nnirow, savage, self-hurtful order? It is the very aciViatof, spite and meanness and egotism, lie very antithesis of Christianity and civilization. Light it nt further from darkness than -this spirit fiom the spirit of brotherhood and love preached by the gentle Nazarene. William Holfenzolloin sny3 that ' God is with him but he takes no count of the teachings of Him who laid: 'Love one another," "Forgive jour bio(,her seven times seven;" Hate is a canker that ci".3 Vie heart that holds it, and by and by it works the utter destruction pf the hater. With these two speeches related to them, Englishmen will fight a'l the more gallantly in the battles ahead. To be the captives of such hatred would be to beartho tortures o a new inferno. Commeicial-Appcal. We are toldrthat there has been a complete breakdown in the "honor system" at the Joilet penitentiary", and "that "new methods" arc to be adopted. The whole idea was ab absuid. Of course convicts should be tioated humanely, and equally, of couise, such convicts as show by their conduct that they can safely be given privileges denied to incorrigibles should not be denied that reward of good behavior. To put a whole peni tentiary of convicts "on their honor and expect that all of them would keep every promise they made seems a policy out of bedlam. We notice in several quarters' a disposition to speak of the Joilet de velopments as a "disappointment." They should not be" so considered. They were inevitable in the end wherever such crude 'methods were tried. Nowthere will doubtless be a swing-back to saner methods in deal ing with the convict problem, and in that connection it is all important that ceaseless vigilance be observed to prevent the old brutal methods creeping back.

Here is the process for beans in detail: Select bean's of the same age and col or, and plan to can immediately after picking. String and wash well, and if you. do not wish to can them whole cut them into uniform pieces. I like them canned whole. Blanch by plac Tng boiling water from five to ten minutes, depending on the age of the beans, and then plunge them quickly into cold water. Fill the jars, pack ing closely. Add one teaspoonful of salt to each quart of beans, fill the jars with boiling water, and put on the tops loosely. Put the jars in tho canner. This may be simply a lard pail or wash boiler with a false bot tom of wooden slats or, bctter,'a wire rack, and the water in it should cov er the cans about one inch.- Heat the water hot when the jars are set in and bring to a boil quickly. Count the time from the moment it starts boiling, ancKstorilize the beans two hours. Then remove jars and tighten covers. Use the same method ,for peas." , hi i WILDCAT INVADES HOME Nevada Men Shooed Animal From Its Hinding Place Under a Bed. Reno, Nov.

O oooooooooooooooc- Tuberculosis germs can not live long in sunshine or 'find much field for development in a well nourished body kept scrupulously clean. This coupled with plenty of pure air, rest and cheerfulness have worked won ders, often in the cure and always in the relief of the disease. Tho grati fying results that have followed the study of consumption by eminent physicians and the suggested treat ment have brought hope to many a victim who has almost despaired. A request of Dr. W. L. Heizcr, Secreta ry of the State Tuberculosis Commis sion at Fiankfort will bring a pamphlet giving this prescribed treatment to any one interested. A reduction of more than 25 per cent, in the death rate from tubcicu losis in the ten years that the scien tific tieatment has been followed, whose valuc has been pioved by ex perience, indicates that in time man's most insatiable enemy may be de stroyed or rendered piactically haim iess. The treatment piovides foi s'eiy little" ihedicinc and that must bo taken only on the prescription of a physician, puie air, plenty of sun light, no dissipation, nourishing food cleanliness and rest. A pamphlet giving full instructions will be sent on application to Dr. W. L. Heizer, Secretary of the State Tuberculosis Commission, Frankfort. The State has institutions for tho care of the insane, the feeble minded and the criminal, but none whero'her more or less dependent consumptives may go for caie and treatment They either are compelled to remain at home where the danger of contami nation is ever piesent, or go to a county almshouse to spread the germs of the disease there. The next legislature ought by all means to provide for tho building of n sana torium. It will be the best invest ment possible in the saving of lives and the prevention of a spread of the disease. Insist that tho man whq you will vote for for the legislature is pledged to voto to provido for such an institution. Education of the rising generation through school courses of tho study and care of tuberculosis and other preventable diseases, is absolutely necessary to their eradication and the Superintendent of Public Instruction should provide and older, such courses to bo taught. Provision should also be made for tho isolation of tubeicular children and no tc&chor employed who is not free from tuber culosis or other infectious disease. Never Neglect n Cold. A chill after bathing, cooling oft suddenly after exercise and drafts, give tho cold germs a foothold that may lend to something -worso. Safe ty requires early treatment.
