As some of the stockholders were Frenchmen, the mills, it WM iiir 1 I. were partly enemy alien property. So the state took ehnrge of ttie mills and prepared to liquidate them. Tills liqui dation was Carried out recently. Alsatian PualSaSI men ami capital ists hud formed a corhruliun to buy the mills in an c(Tort to keep them in Alsatian hands. Bun city administra tions, Me h as the municipality of Muhlhiiuson, wle re a number of fac tories are situated, bought stock in this corporation. The name of the corporation is the United Alsatian Tex tile Factories. Forbidden by Berlin.

WORKING OF PEACH TREE Change of One Varieiy to Another May Be Done by Shield Budding or by Grafting. (Prepared hy the United Plates Depart ment of ..,:, ulture.) Sometimes if is desirable to chnngp the fop of a peach tree from one va riety to another, A grower may find alter his orchard begins to bear that lie has a larger number of trees of some variety than lie wants; a Modi of trees may prove to he some other variety than the one ordered; or, for some oilier reason, a variety Is not well adapted to the needs of the own er. In BSCS cases lie may top-wnri: the tr. e either hy budding or by grafting to a desirable variety. The ordinary met bod of shield hud ding is most commonly used for this purpose. If the tree lo be top-worked is not more than two or three years obi It is usually practicable to Insert Ihe buds directly into the main limbs well down toward Ihe point where they leave the trunk. If the lice to be top-budded hns reached the ago when the bark on the mala limb has become too thick and (inn to be manipulated readily for bud ding, it is necessary first to head It bnch somewhat, as when ihe top is to be replaced with new growth of the aamn variety, and biter insert buds on the new brunches that develop after the tree has been dcheaded. When this course Is followed the buds should he Inserted In the new gTOWtll as near the trunk ns is practicable, in order to have as large a portion of the top as possible of Ihe new variety. Tills is also desirable on account of the subsequent management of the trep. Top-working Is sometimes done hy graft lag instead of budding, the or dinary cleft graft being generally used. However, budding Is to be pre ferred, especially as the wounds made In grafting do not heal readily In the case of the peach, though when SfUf rly done the union of stock and scion is generally strong enough to make a fairly serviceable tree. Mut trouble resulting from difficulties In the healing of Hie wound are likely to occur.

HOMELESS LAUGH AM !CKE No Bitterness, No Complaint, No Des pair Among People, Many cf Whom Were Refugees for Sec ond and Third Time. Paris. "A thousand refugees fri:,. the east of Amiens will pass thlTOSj Acheres at seven o'clock tonight. They will not huve had any supp: r. some of them may not have had nn lunch. There Is no food there und no facilities for feeding them. Can you help us?" That was the telephone MBSSfJI from the French minister of IBS In terior which came to the American Rod Cross at SOOO one day during the OoVSsSa drive on Amiens, and the an swer was "Yes.

It was the Junction point, wbere the thousands of refugees wine to sion for half an hour. Saluted With One Arm. Lieutenant M met us there, sa luted BtMRy with his one arm, and did the honors of the station. A group of WOSry, muddy "pernilsslonaires," most of (hem over forty, just back from the CbnStpngM front, were routed out to help us establish our tables on Ihe cinders between the trucks, and pile the food where it could conveniently be passed into the train. They unloaded bread. scraped cheese, epeaed tins of "bully beef," knocked the tops off the boxes of figs nnd prunCS am! made plans to feed a thousand people in half an hour, llu.1 I omewhere off in Ihe silent country the train, pscksd full of exiles, was -landing on ti side track. It was after two in the morning when the ion;, train with Its M carriages filled wit i refugees came into Acheres. A few windows were opened ; tired faces looked out and voices asked, US' interestedly, "Where are we?" nnd were surprised to he told that they were near Paris. The train was on ils way, they said to Tulle in the Cor rSUa department, in the south oi France. "Will they treat us well there?" an old woman asked and they. In the full ness of their Ignorance, not daring to say otherwise, answered "Yes." It was a short half hour. They ISIlled them bread, they rilled the old w Oman's apron with figs and prunes, they gave milk to the children, ment to fhe old men, cheese to everybody. They absorbed cakes of sweet choco late In a rapid and mysterious man ner. Some of l hem were the much he pottl posted women of Plcardy and some were grizzled old farmers. Oth ers were city folk, obviously not used to third class travel. There were fam alies of three generations huddled to gether on their way somewhere. Home clutched precious umbrellas, some carried bird cages, some alarm clocks. Some of them had (logs, some had cats. But the pathos of it all was not on the surface. Some of them quietly told that they were refugees for the second and third time and laughed and Joked when they woke up. There was no bitterness, no com plaint, no despair. Bread Pile Fell Away. The huge pile of bread fell away, the fig boxes were emptied, the tins were all bunded into the trains. The engine shrieked a shrill French whis tle and the train pulled away. The rescuers were in the silence of the night. One of many thousands of ref ugees hud hud one dreury midnight SsSsI fur from hOUM one lonely meal out of- hundreds, perhaps thousands, before them. A train load of wounded from the front Joggled In ten minutes Inter. 'I he men nurses carried water through ihe carriages swiftly and silently. Then the Americans bunded out the rem nants of their stores of figs anu tho train slipped away again. Mehlud them could be heard the dull booming of the harruge guns about Paris, and the vis itors knew that another air raid was on. They waited until the harruge stopped, theu they headed back through the defenses ot the capital. There was a faint light as they rode back through the forest. They could see clumps of yellow daffodils utterly oblivions of war. NEW SLANT ON WORK CF Y. M. C. A. IN FRANCF Prominent Western Minister Tclii of Religious Activities Within Sound of Hun Guns.

National and Local Meat Business The meat business of the country is conducted by various agencies By small slaughter-houses in villages By local Abattoirs or small Packing Houses in towns both Using only a part of the local live stock supply and Furnishing only a part of the local demand for meat. These slaughtering and distributing agencies fill a well denned but neces sarily restricted place in the distribu tion of the products of live stock. But only packers like Swift & Company, organized on a national scale, are able to undertake the ser vice that is more vitally important, involving An Obligation to the Producer To purchase for spot cash all the live stock the producer may send to market for slaughter.
