ters please read extra'ct from Nor
thern Division Bulletin. We have the
new sweater directions.
Many sweaters are being received
at headquarters which are so wide
that they are too large for most of
the men in the army, navy and ma
rines. On some occasions it has been
necessary to discard twenty sweaters
before finding one which will fit.
May we ask that none of our
workers make a sweater wider than"
eighteen inches. The new directions,
followed properly, with the correct
weight of yarn and the correct sized
needles, will give this width, and
those'chapters that have not already
received these directions are request
ed to send for them at once.
As soon as the stitches are cast on
the needle, the width can be ascer
tained. When this Is too wide, the
number of stitches can be decreased.
If by chance it is tOQ narrow, the
number of stitches can be increased.
We shall be grateful if this fact can
be impressed upon our workers at
this time.

How Epidemics Start!
It might seem that epidemics of
various diseases were' born Mil
fledged over night. Disease epidemics,
however, usually have their source
in one or a few isolated cases. Sim
ply because the danger of contagion
is not recognized or guarded against,
it spreads rapidly.
Many diseases of this character are
contracted from germs which enter
the nose or mouth. Danger of in
fection and tne further transmitting
of the diseases can largely be pre
vented by the use of an antiseptic
gargle or nose spray made by dis
solving two tablespoonfuls of 20 Mule
Team Powdered Boric in a pint of
hot water. An excellent gargle for
sore throat, often the first symptom
of approaching illness, is made by
dissolving one teaspoonful each of
salt and Boric in a pint of hot water.

It Is estimated that the bureau of

department of agriculture is saving
annually over $5,000,000 worth of live
stock for the ranchers of the Rocky
nountaln section as a result of its in
tensive campaign against predatory an

period 60,468 coyotes, 8,085 bobcats,
1,829 wolves,' 201 mountain lions, and
187 bears h'ave been trapped or shot,
and many other animals have been
poisoned. The income from the sale of

Studying Deep-Sea Life.
A peculiar advantage for the study
of marine life is credited the biological
station established at Messina about,
two years ago. The sudden rise of the
ocean bed at the strait of Messina
causes very unusual upward currents
from great depths, and the&e are so
strong as to bring many of the deep
sea animals forcibly to the surface,
where they are caught from smell
boats. The animals are taken under
conditions less abnormal than usual.'
