Care for Crippled Soldiers
Government Plans to Give All Vocational Training and
to Find Employment for Them
It is intended by the government that there shall be no crippled soldiers
selling pencils and shoe strings on the street corners, and small necessity for
“homes” where crippled men may be cared for.
The government has made plans to re-educate every disabled soldier
and sailor, to secure employment for him, and to watch over his welfare
thereafter that he may be independent and self-respecting. The actual steps
which the government will take are five:
1— Election by the disabled men of a course of training.
2 Preliminary training to fit him for a definite occupation.
3 A probationary period of employment in that occupation.
4 Placement in suitable position.
5 Follow-up work to safeguard his interests.
The government will support the man while training, will pay his tuition,
traveling expenses and any other expenses incident to his training, and will
give his family the same support which it has given during his military
service. %
< The disabled man may elect the line of work he wants to take up. He
may be retrained for the work he did before the war, or turn to something
entirely different. He may take further training in his old occupation.
And in addition to his support and the support of his family he-will be
given all the medical care he needs, and will be supplied with any artificial
contrivances necessary because of the loss of limbs or faculties.
The machinery through which this work of rehabilitation will be handled
consists of a federal board of vocational re-education with branches in the
principal cities of the country. David F. Houston, secretary of agriculture, is
chairman of the board; William C. Redfield, secretary of commerce, and
William B. Wilson, secretary of labor, are also on the board, and an executive
staff of experts in vocational education have been employed.

Ah. what would the world be to us
If the children were no more?
We would dread the desert behind us.
Worse than the dark before.
What to Feed the Child.
For a normal baby, with a normal
mother, the first few months or a year
there is nothing better to do than
feed it with nature’s food, mother’s
milk. Orange juice asd water for re
freshment will cool the swollen gums
and give great relief when teething.
If the child has taken prune juice,
unsweetened, and orange juice occa
sionally the digestive tract will be in
good working order. Then in the sec
ond year scraped apple or other fruits
like pears and peaches if well ripened,
may be safely given in very small
quantities. A drink of cool water
should be given frequently. How many
worrying babies, who cannot tell what
they want would be made comfortable
by frequent drinks of pure cool water.
All changes in a child’s diet should
be made very carefully and when any
new food is introduced give it in small
quantities, a teaspoonful or tw r o being
sufficient.
Baked potato is a food particularly
adapted for a young child’s food. Use
a little milk with a grain or two of
salt, then cream and butter may be
added. After a child has become ac
customed to potato a teaspoonful of
finely mashed peas may be given, as
well as carrot, spinach and any vege
table not too woody.
A child’s digestion is so much more
rapid than an adult’s tfcr.t they need
to be fed oftener and in small quan
tities.
A child fifteen months old will need
some such diet as to food and time
as the following: At seven or eight
a breakfast cereal, bread or toast and
a cupful of milk; at noon an egg, po
tato, one other vegetable, bread and
fruit, either juice or scraped fruit.
Five or six, milk and rice or bread,
and at ten a cupful or bottle of milk.
The cereals should be varied so that
they may become accustomed to like
a variety.
The chief thing to remember in
cooking cereals for children is to cook
them long enough. Serve with good
top milk and no sugar. In early youth
the child gets all the sugar he needs
from , the fruit he eats. One good rea
son for having little people eat alone
is that foods that must be denied
them are not put temptingly before
them.
HOUSEHOLD HINTS
To prevent mustard from dry

Explorer Says North Pole
Weather Not as Pictured
Another cherished illusion is dis
pelled and relegated to the junk heap
of vivid misconceptions that have sud
denly faded. Explorer Vilhjalmur Stef
ansson, who has just returned from a
five years’ cruise in the regions around
the North pole, tells us that the weath
er up there is by no means the frigid
terror we have pictured in our minds.
It is much cooler in central Siberia
than at Herschel island. Even near the
geographical pole the climate ne\ er
gets really bad, although the mercury
occasionally runs down to 60 below
zero. Indeed, it was so mild and com
patible with physical comfort that he
usually disrobed on the porch of his
igloo and passed the evening in his
underwear, resting at night in his
sleeping bag. His underwear, by the
way, was of reindeer’s skin with the
fur inside. He has explored about
250,000 square miles amid all kinds of
weather, and claims to have suffered
no hardships, until his return to civi
lization. —Christian Herald.
If He Came Back Now
If he came now!
My heart would be like a once quiet

Hung with gay lanterns on a fete night,
wild
With singing! And my heart would be ?
child
Sleepily waking to a kiss, then flinging
Sleep from it, springing
With all too ready feet.
Out of the night, into the world again.
And finding that its toys were all once
more
There where it left them, waiting on the
floor.
To be played with again. My heart would
be
An opened book filled full with witchery,
Filled, too, with pain.
An opened book that had been left too
long
Upon a dusty shelf. It would be a song
In a young mouth. And it would be buds,
too,
Opening under th& moon, and shivering at
the dew,
But liking it. And It would be a flame,
Red In the night. I used to be glad when
he came,
But not so very glad—because I /thought
That I would always have him. Then
war caught
Him up from me, and bore him out
To be where danger Is; and killed my
doubt,
My hesitation and half fears. Ah, now
I would run to welcome him, if he came
now!

League of Nations Advocated
To Obviate Future Conflicts
This great world war has taught us
that the most urgent, the most neces
sary, the most fundamentally religious
duty now before us, is the devising and
adopting of some method other than
war for settling of disputes that are
bound to arise between nations. Un
less this can be done, says Chris
tian Herald, we can never be sure that
at any moment the results of gen
erations of preaching and teaching
may not be consumed in the fires of
war. The idea of a league of nations
is no longer the mere vision of seers,
the dream of prophets and the intellec
tual plaything of theorists. It is to
day one of the most concrete and un
avoidable issues in the field of prac
tical statesmanship.
Memorial Planned to Dogs
Sacrificed in Gas Tests
Prompted by girls of the chorus at
Hippodrome ancL indorsed by other
women, and, it is laid, by the New
York club and the Toy Dog club, a
movement is under way to set up a
memorial to the dogs whose lives were
sacrificed in experimental work for the
army. It is stated that the chemical
warfare division of the war depart
ment used on an average of 80 dogs a
month in testing gases and protection
devices. It was suggested that a fund
be raised for the erection of a dog’s
drinking fountain in a park to bear a,
tablet explaining the service done for
humanity by the dogs.
Men, Women and Children
Helped Bring Big Victory
Just what name posterity will give
to th war nobody of the immediate
present can say; but if it is fairly de
scriptive it will perhaps somehow in
clude or suggest the part taken by
the women, who, in 17 months, for
one thing, have turned out something
over 14,000,000 knitted articles. The
women, in fact, have knit themselves
into history in a way that the future
historian will have to take into con
sideration. Literally it has been a war
of men, women and children against
an impending tyranny.
Latest Vending Machine Is
of Spurious Coin
One of the interesting developments
in the vending machine field is a large
apparatus that dispenses bottled bev
erages, sandwiches and chewing gum.
In order to encourage patrons to re
turn empty bottles machine, a
, ick of gum is discharged when a
bottle is placed in the receiver provid
ed for it. A counterfeit detector re
jects spurious coins. A complete rec
ord of all transactions is kept by a
sales registering mechanism. The only
attention the machine requires is that
involved in stocking and icing it daily.
Lung Disease Statistics.
According to the census bureau’s
mortality strtistics for 1916, the states
having the lowest death rate to the
thousand from all forms of tubercu
losis were Kansas 54.4, and Utah, 49.3;
from tuberculosis of the lungs, Kan
sas, 47.4, and Utah, 40.1; from all
forms of pneumonia, Washington, 53.4,
and Kansas, 82.7.
Why Wisconsin Is Known as
“Badger” State and Origin
of “Sucker” for Illinois
Wisconsin is called the Badger
state, not, as most people seem to
think, because the badger formerly
abounded there, for in the past Wis
consin was never a favorite home of
this little quadruped, writes a corre
spondent.
The faipiliar nickname originated
rather with the early settlement of
southwestern Wisconsin, whose lead
mines attracted the first considerable
migration to Wisconsin. The hardy
lead miners who pushed into the por
tion of the northwestern wilderness
Intent on digging fortunes from the
earth with their picks were composed
in the main of two groups. One, made
up of men from southern Illinois and
further south, went down the Mis
sissippi to their homes every win
ter and returned in the spring to la
bor for another season; the other, com
posed of miners from the Eastern
states, could not thus easily go home,
and so they “burrowed in” for the
winter in rude shacks or huts, which
frequently were built after the fash
ion of dugouts.
The men who went south for the
winter and returned in the spring were
given the name of “suckers” from the
similarity of this practice with
that of the well-known fish of the
Mississippi, Rock and other Western
streams.
The men who wintered in the lead
mines were # called “badgers.” They
were the first permanent settlers in
the lead mines noyth of the Wiscon
sin line, and thus the name became
associated with the state.
Thus did the people of Wisconsin
and Illinois gain the popular nick
names of “Badger” and “Sucker” by
which they have ever since been
knewn.
\
Small eggs, dirty eggs, old eggs oi
eggs which have been kept at a high
temperature for any length of time art
the kinds not to select for incubation,
according to a circular prepared by
the poultry husbandry department ol
the Kansas State Agricultural college.
Not all eggs from the best breeding
stock are good for hatching purposes.
Often the eggs are small, uneven in
shape or poor in shell textilre. Small
eggs should never be incubated, as
they do not hatch well', and pullets
from them often lay undersized eggs.
The small egg is not wanted upon the
market. The two ounce egg is the
standard in weight.
Since the egg begins to incubate
when it reaches a temperature of 6S
degrees it should be kept below that
point. From 45 to 65 degrees is the
range of temperature permissible for
eggs that are being kept for hatching.
Eggs should not be kept any longer
than is absolutely necessary. If they
are turned frequently and are kept at
the correct temperature they may be
kept for two weeks before being
placed in the incubator, but it is not
advisable to try to keep them for that
long a time.
Hogs Contract Colds and
Pneumonia-Caution Uryed
Trouble often develops among Jiogs
at this season of the year In the form
of cold and pneumonia, according to
Dr. Robert Graham, professor of ani
mal pathology at the University of
Illinois. Doctor Graham gives warn
ing that when pigk of all ages and
sizes are allowed to pile up at night
in a warm shed some are likely to
come out steaming in the morning and
that the cold winds and frosty atmos
phere will have a bad effect on them.
He recommends the following precau
tions : Hog houses and feeding places,
runways, fences and sheds, should be
thoroughly cleaned and sprayed with
a 3 per cent water solution of com
"pound of cresol (U. S. P.) or its rec
ognized equivalent. Quicklime should
be scattered freely about the lots, af
ter they have been raked clean of
cobs and manure. Wallows should be
drained and fenced off, all-small holes
filled and large fields where the infec
tion prevails should be cultivated.
Arizona Is Cleaning Out
Beasts Which Kill Stock
One Of the efforts of the state gov
ernment of Arizona and the federal
government In their campaign for the
eradication of predatory animals,
which cause large losses in range stock,
is the employment of skilled hunters.
Thirteen are now in the employ of the
state and federal governments. Other
men are exterminating rodents t(*hich
destroy ranges. One of the hunters
within two months killed 11 mountain
lions. Another killed 55 coyotes with
in a month.
Field for Treasure Seekers.
With the evacuation of French and
Belgian territory by the Huns a won
derful new field is opened up for the
treasure seeker. When the invading
hordes first overran the country in
1915 many of the residents buried
their valuables before seeking safety
in flight. During the four years and
more of war many of these families
have become separated and numerous
members have died. In many instances
the secret of the buried property has
been lost. In London companies al
ready are being promoted to seek the
hidden gold.
Sheep Shearers Well Paid.
Sheep shearers in Australia can do
about as well as munition workers.
The rate of pay is two pounds, ten
shillings for 100 sheep. As high as
250 sheep have been sheared in a day
by one man, which would give a day’s
earnings of about S3O, and 100 sheep
is or ordinary day’s work.

UKRAINIAN
YEAR BOOKS
Publications Have Wider Circulation
Than Newspapers
The yearbooks published by the
Ukrainians in the United and
Canada are highly important fea
tures of their household libraries, ac
cording to the committee on public
information. The 'Ukrainians do not
publish any illustrated magazines in
tills country hut issue a number of
paper-covered annuals dealing with an
enormous number of subjects and
filled .with pictures.
Thus one of the most Vecent Ukrain
ian almanacs, which is just off the
press, contains articles on airplanes,
agriculture, politics, international re
lations, music, wifeless telegraphy, and
travel. .\nd this is only the beginning.
There is one article about Woodrow
Wilson, accompanied by a picture of
the president and quotations from
some of his memorable speeches.
These yearbooks, of which there are
about ten, have a wider circulation
than the Ukrainian newspapers and
one or more of them is pretty sure to
be found even in the humblest Ukrain
ian household.
English Writer Tells About
Films That Actually Talk-
Latest Edison Invention
Thomas Alva Edison, in his wonder
ful new invention, has given us pic
tures that not only move but talk, re
lates a Loudon correspondent. The
kinetoplione and the phonograph, and
its effects are weirdly realistic. The
machine is so constructed that the
sounds of the voices of the actors in
the picture drama are reproduced in
the most natural way.' When figures
appear to be walking toward the front
of the stage their voices get louder as
they get nearer- to the audience, and
softer as they retreat. When a plate
Is smashed the noise of broken crock
ery is distinctly heard. The notes of
the piano or violin are reproduced
when the actor plays on one of these
instruments, the expression and time
being clearly marked. Whistling, sing
ing, opening and shutting doors, etc.,
are all heard. >
Talking pictures are also to be seen
in a similar invention, the klinoplasti
kon. The effects here are most won
derful. Dancers come from the wings,
perform and sing, and retire to the
wings again, and after applause come
and bow their acknowledgments tq the
audience in the most natural manner.
What is more, the stage is not in dark
ness, as in the case of ordinary bio
scope pictures, but is perfectly light,
and there is no screen. The illusion
of living people singing and dancing
as in a real theater is thus almost
complete, for the figures do almost
everything that a living artist can do.
Man’s Work Should Provide
Happiness and Peace of Mind
A man’s work should always mean
more to him than a mere means of live
lihood. He should draw from it happi
ness, contentment, peace of mind. 1 This
he can do only if he looks upon his
work as contributing something worth
while to the lives of his fellow men.
For men are so built that the con
sciousness of rendering service is an
instinctive need of their being. Those
who have not this consciousness are
certain to be unhappy, whether they
do not work at all or up to the
limit of their powers and whether the
monetary return from their work is
small or great.

Steel Making Very Similar
To* Making of Pie, Says an
American Chemical Expert
The making of steel is very similar
to the making of a pie, says J. W.
Beckman, a member of the American
Chemical society. In a pie a number
of various ingredients are mixed to
gether, and produce the desired re
sults ; and such is also the case in
making steel. Among the most im
portant ingredients which enter into
steel manufacture, aside from the iron
itself, are the metals manganese and
silicon. These two metals added to
the iron in various proportion give the
necessary quality to the steel. With
out them modern steel manufacture
would be a failure.
Prior to the war metallic manganese
used in steel making was obtained
from ores imported from Russia and
smelted in the United States into an
alloy known as ferro-manganese. Prior
to the war, as is now the case, silicon
was smelted in the United States In
electric furnaces from quartz rock into
an alloy know as ferro-silicon. These
were the two sources from which the
silicon and manganese necessary in
steel were obtained. The war has
made enormous changes in the field of
steel making. Germany has been de
prived completely from obtaining man
ganese from outside sources. The
United States has also been deprived,
due to many circumstances, from ob
taining the requisite amount of man
ganese ores from outside sources. Ger
many has hunted through its mineral
deposits and has found ores contain
ing manganese and silicon together

Texas Making Wonderful
Strides in Oil Industry
Under the spur of war, Texas in the
last year, has effected a tremendous
development of her oil industry. To
day there are in operation in that
state 42 refineries with a capacity of
278,500 barrels daily. They are ca
pable of refining double the amount of
oil produced in the Texas field last
year. Fields of unsuspected volume
have been opened and made to aid in
keeping ships and>army motors at top
speed. In the coastal region where
ten refineries are in operation, the first
unit is nearly completed of a big oil

ment from $8,000,000 to $10,000,000.

Each Must Learn His Own
Best Way of Living, Then
Get the Most Out of Life
There is only one best conduct of
life for you, and that Is the one that
is best for you. Those who wander
aimlessly In quest of the single right
formula for existence grope in a mazq
through which they must tread their
way endlessly in searc** of the center
which does not exist, observes a writer
in Collier’s Weekly.
There is no one recipe which will
serve for all mankind. Each must
learn not his neighbor’s but his owq
best way of living. To one it may bq
the routine task, the daily round, td
curb the wnndering will and bring
content. To another it may be the
fortitude to escape the sheltering care
of habit or the lassitude of sloth. To
one it should be the abandonment of
philosophy and introspection to rub
elbows with his fellow-men; to an
other, the willingness to let the soul
awaken and breathe amid the sky
rimmed prairie and under the death
less stars; to one, hearthstone and
slippers; to another the seven seaS,
the aurora borealis and the southern
cross; to one, society; to another,
solitude; to one, the quiet which stills
the passions; to another, the eter
nal restlessness which brings achieve
ment.
The best rounded life contains some
thing of each and all. There are but
two attitudes to avoid —the level line
of least resistance and the rigidity of
self-distrust, which denies every im
pulse simply because it is impulse.
Somewhere between the two lies your
course. Many are the thickets to be
hewed down, many the crags to be
scaled. But beyond stands the inn in
the clearing, where faithful travelers
may find the refreshment, the rest and
the kindly words of welcome which
form the goal and the reward of life
well lived.
and has smelted these ores and pro
duced silico-manganese, an alloy con
taining in itself two of the essential
metals necessary in successful steel
manufacture.
The United States has been scoured
all over for the purpose.of finding
valuable manganese ores. Ores have
been found, especially in the West, in
very large amounts similar to those
ores which have been the salvation of
the German steel industries. Ferro
manganese can be produced from these
ores and in doing that part of the
valuable metal manganese is wasted.
Silico-manganese is produced today
from these ores on the Pacific coast,
with no waste of the metal manganese.
The manufacture of this silico-man
ganese alloy opens up unlimited ore
reserves in the United States, which
have had no value. Silico-manganese
can do the same for the American
steel industries as it has already done
for the German.

Curtiss Is Credited With
Originating Hydroplane
The idea of the hydroplane was sug
gested in patent specifications by Gugo
Matullath of New York, 1899, but it
had its practical origin in Glenn
Curtiss, who added floats to the air
plane with which he was experiment
ing over Lake Keuka in 1908. These
were placed under each wing, so that
in case of accident the machine would
not sink. Langein and others had
made their experimental flights over
bodies of water for the same reasons.
Probably the first to make the floats
an integral part of the machine was
Fabre, who on March 28,' 1910, made
the first flight wltto a practical hydro
plane at Martlgnes, on the Seine. Cur
tiss soon abandoned floats and buili
boat bodies, and for this accomplish
raent he received the Aero Club o;
America trophy In 1911.

have kidney or bladder trouble and nevei
suspect it.
Womens’ complaints often prove to b
nothing else but kidney trouble, or th
result of kidney or bladder disease.

to become diseased.

ache and loss of ambition.
Poor health makes you nervous, irritm

anyone so.
But hundreds of women claim that Dr.
Kilmer’s Swamp-Root, by' restoring
health to the kidneys, proved to be just
the remedy needed to overcome such

real healing and curative value, should
be a blessing to thousands of
over-worked women.

N. Y., may receive sample size bottle by
Parcel Post. You can purchase the
medium and large size bottles at all drug
