The ’Value of Salads in the Diet
Salads are invaluable In the diet as
they supply water, mineral salts, acids,
cellulose and flavor when prepared
from vegetables and fruits. Meat, fish,
eggs and cheese supply protein and
fat while starchy vegetables furnish
fuel food. The salad dressings are
am Important part of the salad as re
gards nutrition, for they are valuable
fuel foods.
The materials used in making sal
*tids are: Raw vegetables, cooked
vegetables, eggs, meat, fish, cheese,
Huts and fruit. With such a variety
from which to choose, there is no need
©f monotony.
Calcutta Salad. *
* Take one cupful of soff cheese, one
fcaif cupful of grated American cheesy,
©no cupful of whipped cream, three
fourths of a tnblespoonful of gelatin,
©ne teaspoonful of salt, and o few
flashes of paprika. Soak the gelatin
In the cold water, add the hot water
to dissolve it. Soften the cheese with

French dressing.
! French Dressing.
I The amount of acid will vary with
X the kiud of salad on which it is to
tie nsed. One tablespoonful of vine
gar to three of oil is a good combina
tion, and half a teaspoonful of salt
and a few dashes of paprika. This
dressing may be changed by adding a
tablespoon fill of thick cream to the
french dressing, a tablespoonful of
chopped onion, parsley, or green pep
per. The dressing should be well
% blended by beating with a Dover egg
beater, then add the chopped vege
tables and let stand for at least an
hour to season. Beat again before
serving.
Wood Produces Quick Heat
and Is Cheaper Than Coal
Farmers who own woodlands and
people in cities, towns ard villages
who can purchase wood from near-by
farms can help this winter —as last
winter —to relieve the demand for coal
and the strain on railway capacity by
burning wood in place of coal. It is
not expected substitution of wood
for coal will be complete or universal,
as for many purposes coal is much
more convenient. But for heating
many kinds of buildings wood is the
more convenient and cheaper fuel.
This is particularly true in the case
©f churches, halls, summer cottages
and other buildings for which heat is
Xcequired only occasionally but then is
wanted in large volume at short no
tice. )
65 Per Cent of Fires of

300, the heaviest of any year in the
history of the country except 1906,
when the great San Francisco con
flagration swelled the total to $450,-

factor in 1917’s unusual record. In
some instances where the heaviest
par munition losses occurred there

Toasted Potatoes Regarded
Good Substitute for Bread
—Skins Add to the Flavor
The United States this year, It ap # -
pears, will have to feed practically
all of Europe. Every suggestion for
conservation of food and variation in
preparation is welcome and an arti
cle in Good Housekeeping has special
value in this connection. To quote:
“It is plainly a patriotic duty to use
potatoes as a bread substitute. The
nearest approach to conventional meth
ods of cooking potatoes for a bread
substitute is, of course, a perfectly
baked potato, but a perfectly baked
potato is rare as a day in June.
“Even a perfectly baked potato
served at the psychological moment
does not give that subtle sense of
bread function that the piece of bread
or toast, held in hand affords.
“Prepare good-sized potatoes as if
to bake, being more scrupulously care
ful than usual to scrub and cleanse
the skin carefully aid remove all bad
spots. Cut the perfectly cleansed po
tato lengthwise into slices one-fourth
of an inch thick. Put the slices loose
ly into a wire basket or steamer and
steam until they are properly ‘tem
pered’—that is, until they are in part
but not completely cooked. If they are
completely cooked by the steam, they
are of no particular value as a bread
substitute. Asa rule, about ten min
utes’ steaming is adequate. After this
initial steaming, dry the slices well
between clean towels and toast as you
would slices of bread, or put them Sn
a wire basket or perforated pan ad
bake in a very hot oven until the slices
are delicately browned dd both sides.
Sprinkle lightly with salt. Serve as
you would toast. The skins can be re
moved before serving or while eat
ing, but if one is a connoisseur, a real
disciple of Epicurus, with as much love
of flavor and conservation as a boy or
animal, he will eat the toasted slices
skin and all.”

deeds the smaller they seem.

Fuel Producers Predict an
Oversupply in Coal Market
The question of fuel supply is an
ever present and important problem.
With the decreased requirements for
war purposes some of the fuel produc
ers are intimating that there will be
a surplus in the near future, but this
only means that there will not be an
excessive demand at the present In
flated prices. Whatever may eventu
ate in this direction, the cost of fuel is
an important item in operating ex
penses of commercial vehicles, and it
is in this direction that sensational de
velopment is certain to take place.

Switch and Signal company at Pitts
burgh, causing a loss of $4,200,000,
and the Washburn Wire works at New
York city, with a loss of $1,100,000.
The aggregate fire waste of the
United States and Canada during the
past 40 years, from 1878 to 1917, in
clusive, reaches the appalling total of
$6,480,267,560, showing an annual av
erage property destruction of $162,-
000.G98. It is generally conceded by
those who make a study oi fire loss
causes that fully 65 per cent of the
fires of this country are due to pre
ventable causes. On this basis of cal
culation the preventable fire losses of
the country during the past 40 years
reach the total of $4,212,173,909.

AN UNDEFILED HERITAGE
Father In heaven, who lovest all,
Oh, help thy children when they call;
That they may build from age to age
An undeflled heritage.
Teach us to rule ourselves always,
Controlled and cleanly night and day;
That we may bring, if need arise,
No maimed or worthless sacrifice.
Teach us to look, in all our ends,
On thee for Judge, and not our friends;
That we with thee may walk uncowed
By fear or favor of the crowd.
Teach us the strength that cannot seek
By deed or thought to hurt the weak;
That, under thee, we may possess
Man’s strength to comfort man’s distress
Teach us delight in simple things,
And mirth that has nc bitter springs;
Forgiveness free of evil done,
And love to all men ’neath the sun.

American Housewives Profit
From the Lessons in Thrift
As Taught by French Chefs
The French chef, the acknowledged
world leader of the art of the cuisine,
is the product of a country that sur
passes all others in the practice of
thrift.
But the necessity of keeping her
food budget within strict limits in
spite of war prices has led many an
American housewife to discover for
herself some of the secrets of the
French chef in making inexpensive
and formerly neglected food into deli
cacies fit for a king.
Especially has this been so in the
preparation of meat for our American
tables. The following are some of the
secrets of the French chef that the
American housewife has discovered
for herself.
Flank steak, which costs much less
than top sirloin or round steak, makes
an excellent roast. It can also be pot
roasted or used as chop steak.
Chuck or round steak costs much
less than porterhouse or sirloin. These
cuts should be cooked by “moist” heat
or made tender by mechanical means,
as In “hamburger.”
Beef neck is juicy and well flavored.
It makes a good pot roast and the
very best stews and soups.
The cross rib makes an excellent pot
roast and there is no waste.
Shin of beef makes a good “beef a
la mode.” Cut it up as for stew;
brown pieces In hot fat; then add wa
ter; cook in a pot the same&as pot
roast, and serve with gravy.
Shin of beef makes a most nourish
ing soup and the meat can be taken
from the pot afterward and served
with horseradish sauce.
If you buy a rib roast of beef,
have your butcher cut the rib end off
so that you can use It for making
soup. If it is left on and roasted with
the rest of the meat it is largely
wasted.
For corned beef, the flank piece, the
navel piece and the brisket piece cost
the least. These cuts are palatable and
the left-over portions can be made into
a delicious hash.
Chinese Also Have “Kicks”
On the Telephone Service
China is learning fast. Where a
few years ago the telephone would be
considered an invention of the devil
now listen to this wall from a native
business man to a Tientsin paper:
“Can we hope for any improvement
In the long-distance telephone situa
tion? A few days ago I called up
Peking about 3 p. m., and was inform
ed that there were 60 calls ahead of
me, and that there were only three
trunk lines in operation. I finally got
the call about 10 p. m. Surely the
Chinese administration can put up an
other trunk line and make this one
time fine service of use again to busi
ness men. The Peking long-distance
service is almost as bad as similar
services in Japan.”
India’s Total Sugar Acreage
Estimated at 2,550,000 Acres.
The first official forecast of the
sugar-cane crop of India for the 1918-
19 season is based upon reports re
ceived from provinces that contain 99
per cent of the area under cand in
British India. The area planted
is estimated at 2,550,000 acres, which
is practically the same as the estimate
for the 1917-18 season. Seasonal con
ditions at sewing time were not very
favorable in the important cane-grow
ing provinces and, owing to the delay
caused by rains the crop returns are
still uncertain in the greater part of
the United Provinces, which contain
more than half the cane area of Brit
ish India.

Romance of Business and
the World-Famous Paquins
Mme. Paquin, the world-famous
modiste, has been making clothing for
the American army. Whenever any
one congratulated the' late M. Paquin
upon his success and praised those
wonderful creations in feminine ap
parel which the world and his wife
flocked to see he merely replied: “The
credit belongs to madame, not to my
self.” M. Paquin started life as a
bank clerk. Madame was a saleswom
an in a big Paris dressmaking house
when they were married. She induced
him to leave the bank and open a
small costumeris: shop known as the
Malson Lelanne. That shop has long
ceased to exist, but from It sprang the
huge business house of Paquin, which
the founder recently sold to a com

Irish Yachtsman and Boat With Which He Ifopes to Lift the Cup.
There will be no race for the America’s cup in 1919, simply because it is
believed that there is not time enough, between the present date and the
yachting season, to design and build a suitable defender. Sir Thomas Lipton
is informed, however, that if his challenge is made to cover 1920 he can count
upon an acceptance. It lony be taken for granted that this will be entirely
agreefdde to the man who is always ready to back a Shamrock. Even if there
shall no race this year, the apparent probability that there would be one
next year has made the close of 1918 seem more peaceful on the water as well
as on the land.
COL HUSTON BACK IN U. S. A.
Part Owner of Yankees Says Wounded
Players Should Be Cared for
on Their Return,

of the New York American league
baseball club, has arrived in New York
after 16 months’ service in France
Lieut. Col. T. L. Huston.
With the Fifteenth regiment of engi
neers. Huston, who also is a veteran
of the Spanish-Araerican war, was one
of the first men from the big leagues
to enter the army, offering his services
to the war department on the day the
United States entered the war.
Colonel Huston urged that organized
baseball come to the aid of former
players who were wounded in the war,
asserting that “we cannot do too much
for them.” He said he approved all
the steps taken by his partner, Colonel
Ruppert, to strengthen the New York
Americans and predicted a prosperous
season in 1919.
REGRETTABLE MISTAKE MADE
Somebody Slipped in Rating Bruno
Haas as “Ineligible”—is Now
an Ensign.
A regrettable mistake seems to have
been made by somebody in rating
Bruno Haas as among the Chicago
>Vhite Sox “ineligibles” in the Ameri
can league reserve list. The facts are
that Haas enlisted in the naval avia
tion service November 1, 1917, finished
the ground course at the school in Bos
ton, was advanced to active flying and
made such progress that he was com
missioned an ensign in the navy s avia
tion force last summer, after which he
was given an important post as in
structor in flying at the Pensacola fly
ing field. It is evident from this rec
ord that Haas is in no sense a slacker
and the American league list will be
corrected accordingly, with due apolo
gies made Ensign Haas.

KID GLEASON IS NOW
WHITE SOX MANAGER
Pepper Pot of Comiskey’s Team
Is Named as Leader.
It Was Not a Great Surprise to Many
That Clarence Rowland Was De
posed—Career of Both Men
Outlined Briefly.
“Kid” Gleason of Philadelphia, who
was called the pepper pot of the White
Sox during the years he had charge of
them on the field, has been named
manager for next year in place of
Clarence Rowland.
While it wasn’t a great surprise
that Comiskey bad released Rowland,
it was a surprise that the new man
was Gleason. It generally was sup
posed that Comiskey and Gleason were
not even on speaking terms. . In fact,
Gleason refused to join the Sox last
year as coach, a job he had held a
number of years.
Gleason will begin active service at
the New York joint meeting.
It may be' recalled that when Comis
key felt compelled to make a change in
management in midseason away back
in 1905 he selected Fielder Jones,
though, according to accurate informa
tion, he was not on speaking terms
with Jones at the time.
Just why Rowland was dismissed is
a matter left unanswered by Comiskey.
Outside of saying that he felt it a
matter of his best judgment in his
effort to give Chicago fans the best
possible baseball results, the South
side leader had nothing to say.
It will be the first attempt of “Kid”
Gleason as a manager of a ball club,
though the “Kid” will be fifty-three
years of age this year and has served
more than 30 years in the professional
game, 20 or more as a coach. He be
gan his baseball career in 1887 as a
pitcher with the Scranton, Pa., club,
and later developed into a star second
baseman. He was a member of the
fatuous Baltimore Orioles from 1893
to 1895, and played with the New York.
Giants from 1890 to 1900. He ended
his career as a player with the Phil
lies in 1907.
# Rowland gained his baseball fame as
a “bush” leaguer and had no major
league experience before coming to
the White Sox in 1915. He had man
aged several clubs in the Three-I
league, and was the leader of the
Peoria, 111., club of the Three-I league
when Comiskey hired him.
Rowland landed the White Sox in
third place in 1915, his first year as
manager of the club, and finished sec
ond in 1916. The following year the
team won the American league pen
nant and defeated New York
Giants for the world’s championship,
but in 1918 they finished sixth in the
pennant race.

MUST PROVIDE FOOD
Duty Devolving on Farmers of
This Continent.
Western Canada Well Prepared to
Meet the Needs of the Old World—
“ The Earth Is a Machine Which
Yields Almost Gratuitous Service to
Every Application of Intellect”-.
Emerson.
Speaking with one of the commis
sioners appointed to make a survey of
the food situation in the battle-torn
countries of Europe the writer was
told that the depletion and shortage
of food was far greater than anybody
had expected. With the investigation,
which at that time had merely started,
much had been brought to light that
had only been surmised. Herds of live
stock were completely wiped out, fields
that had been prolific yielders of grain,
roots and vegetables were terraced and
hummocked by bombs and shells,
many of them still lying unexploded
and dangerous. Until this land can be
gone over and cleaned nothing in the
way of cultivation can be carried on,
and even where that is done the work
of leveling and getting under cultiva
tion will take a long time.
Much more devolves upon the farmer
on this side of the Atlantic than was
at first supposed. Herds of live stock
will have to be replenished, and this
will take years; the provisioning of
the people in the meantime is the task
the farmers here will be asked to un
dertake. Producing countries will be
taxed to their utmost to meet this de
mand; all that can be provided will
be needed. This need will continue
for some time, and during this period
prices will be high. The opinion of
those who have given the question
most careful thought and study Is that
food scarcity will be greater than ever
before. The Allies will have to feed
Germany, Austria, Turkey and Russia
and this in addition to the require
ments of European neutrals for in
creased supplies now that there is no
submarine menace.
To the Canadian and American farm
er this means a demand for his grain
fully as great as at any time in the
past. Wheat will be needed, meat will
be required. The slogan “don’t stop
saving food” is as necessary today as
ever. The purpose of this article Is to
direct attention to the fact that hun
dreds of thousands of acres of land
In Western Canada are still unoccu
pied, and this land is capable of pro
ducing enough to supply all needs. On
Its rich grasses are easily raised—and
cheaply too—the cattle that will be
sought; In its soil lies the nutriment
that makes easy the production of the
grain that will be needed, and in both
the farmer will be assured of a good
profit on his investment. The land can
be purchased at low prices, on easy
terms, and wfth the abundance of re
turns that it will give, it does not mean
a matter of speculation. The facts as
set out are known, and are
guaranteed.
These facts, the low cost of the land,
and its great productivity, combined
with the admirable marketing and
transport facilities at the disposal of
the farmer make farming in Western
Canada an attractive proposition.—Ad
vertisement.

An Attack of Influenza
Often Leaves Kidneys In
Weakened Condition
Doctors in all parts of the country have
been kept busy witn the epidemic of in
fluenza which has visited so many homes.
The symptoms of this disease are very
distressing and leave the system in a run

complains of lame back and urinary
troubles which should not be neglect

dangerous kidney troubles. Druggists
report a large sale on Dr. Kilmer’s
Swamp-Root which so many people say
soon heals and strengthens the kidneys
after an attack of grip. Swamp-Root,
being an herbal compound, has a gentle
healing effect on the kidneys, which
is almost immediately noticed in most
cases by those who try it. Dr. Kilmer
