Many consider this method entirely satisfactory, though Instnnccs nro known In which eggs so preserved havo tasted slightly of time Dissolve 2 or 3 pounds of unslack ed llmo In 5 gallons of water that has previously been boiled and allowed to cool, and allow tho mixture to stand until! tho llmo settles nnd tho liquid is clear.

At least two Inches of tho solution nhould cover the top layer of eggs. Sometimes a pound of salt Is used with tho lime, but oxperlenco has shown that In general tho llmo with out tho salt Is more satisfactory. Little Care llequlied To Sae Seed.

Selection is Im portant In tills group, howover, espec ially to Insure healthy seed. Any sur plus dried seed of these plants may bo used for food. . Keiiturk Crop lMinintox. Kentucky's crop prospects at pre sent may bo summarized as being a wheat crop of approximately 12,129. 000 bushels, oompared to 9,000,000 bushels last year; corn, IOC, 774, 000 bushels, compared to 122.S50.000 bushels In 1917; oats, 8.029.000 buBhels, compared to S.0G0.000 bush els last year; ryo, 419,000 bushels, compared to 375,000 last year; bar ley, 138,000 bushels, compared to 140,000 buBhels last yoar; Irish pota toes, 1,990,000 bushels, compared to (5,720,000 bushels Inst yoar and 3C1. 171,000 pounds of tobacco, compared to 420,000,000 pounds grown last year. Corn has been badly damaged by tho drouth In somo sections, but tho lato corn may bo able very largely to overcome tho dnmngo It tho rest of tho season Is favorable. Although tho tobacco crop Is ap parently soriously cut In this Stato by tho drouth, lt should bo remombercd thnt tobacco can grow out wonder fully from drouth daniogo In a very hhort tlmo lato in tho soason, nnd tormor reports of great drouth dam ago to tho tobacco crop havo often proved deceptlvo becauso of quick growth Into In tho season. Howover, itho crop In Kentucky has apparently been seriously damagod. Lato potatoes will probably yield bettor than tho early crop. Tho "buckwheat crop near Soinorset, Is re ported In good condition, with an in creased ncreago. Tho crtp reports for tho entlro Vnlted States Indicate nbout 878, 337,000 bushels of spring nnd wintor wheat together (tho spring wheat ylold helping out tho drouth-damaged wintor wheat crop) compared to nn nverngq of 809,345,000 bushels 1912 10, inclusive; corn, 2.989.97G.000 bushels, compared to nn uverago of 2,701,252,000 bushols 1912-10, in clusive; oats, 1,127,778,000 bushols, compared to an average of 1,290, 40G.000 bushols; barley, 231,870,000 bushols, compared to an nvorago of 201,025,000 bushols; ryo, 70,034. 000 bushols, compared to an nverngo of 41.547.000 bushels; Irish potatoes, 391,055,000 bushels, compared to an nvorago of 301,753,000 bushols, and dobacco, 1,227,031,000 pounds, com pared to nn nvorago of 1,033,367,000 pounds 1012-16, inclusive.

LEARNING WHITE MAN'S WAYS Eskimos Said to Be Making Gratify ing Progress as a Result of Mis sionaries' Teachings. On ITersclipl Island, where tho sun shines continuously for eight weeks In .Mipimpr, the KsklnuK had n sun dance, not always clothed In the garments of propriety, n writer in an exchange says. They had an Idea that when the sun came hack Its movements were direct ed by nn Invisible power, but they had no tangible conception of n God. They had no belief In a future life, either of reward or punHhment. Today they are religions, truthful, kind to their children and to the aged. They nro ambitious to Irani; they nro practical, extremely Industrious, sanitary In their habits, well clothed and well housed. Insanity Is unknown, but tu berculosis Is common. They whale Jn summer nnd trap in winter. They nre clever In trading, pond workers on land, water and Ice, nnd take excellent rare of their house hold effects. Tools, If broken, nro , neatly repaired. When on nerschel Island or at Fort McPherson, they eat , the white man's food with great rel-' Ish. In hummer they pat their fish and blubber raw nnd In winter frozen. They like food cooked, but It Is n mntter of Indifference to them. They will bar ter for the white mnn's food, ent a hearty meal of It, and then go out and eat blubber nnd raw fish ns dessert. The contents of n deer's stomach they consider n great delicacy. Sugar 12 to 15 Cents a Pound. In these dnys of tribulation, when everything rises but father's wages, wo nil very consistently bemonn the high cost of Hvhi". Rut this, observes Pop ular Science Monthly, Is not the first ntul only time that prices have been high. During the Civil war wages ran from 1.12 a day for inborers to $2 a day for skilled workmen. This, how ever, did not pro ent n shave from cost ing 10 cents or u haircut 20 cents. Hotel rates were ?l..r0 to ?2 n day, nnd Ice, which was considered n great luxury, wns supplied nt CO cents a week for 10 pounds dally. Strangely enough sugar wns the chief bone of contention In those dnys, too, and It cost 12 to 15 cents a pound. War Prisoners to Form Club. A dozen Riltlsh prisoners. of war who had escaped from Germany met at a dinner recently given In London to celebrate their escape. At this din ner It wns decided to form u club, membership of which wns to bo con fined to those who have succeeded In making their way out of ti prisoners' of war or Internment camp In Ger many. The site of tho dub premises has not yet been settled, but the club will certainly be the most novel thing of Its kind In London. Many Lambs Killed by Rattlers. Rnttlers, always plentiful In parts of Washington state, are this year more numerous than In any previous season. Sheepmen nro forcibly re minded of thu fact by tho loss of lambs.

WHY WOMEN GET THEIR WAY Prominent Characteristic of the Sex, as Most Married Men Know, It Their Determination. The mnln difference between men nnd women Is nowhere so mnrked as It Is In the distinction between char acter nnd nhlllty. A man's nhlllty Is entirely scpnrnto from his chnrncter. A mnn mny hnve genius and no character nt nil. Ho mny hnvo smnll abilities nnd largo diameter. In a man tho two things nppear to bo entirely Independent of one another. Rut n woman's chnrncter Is deter mined by her nhlllty, nnd her nblllty Is determined by her chnrncter. In rcnllty, therefore, women nro much -more simple than men, although they lo not nppear to bo so. .Women nro more complicated outwardly than men. They offer more superficial variety. Rut closer observation lyid association among them tend to ninku them more nllke. Men, on the other hnnd, grow more complicated as you come to know them better. This Is because their abilities nnd ehnmcters being unrelated nnd the proportionate measure of each subject to Mirlatlons, new combinations nre constantly being presented. The vn rlous things which go to make up the motive power of woman, on the other hnnd, nre more closely relntcd. Wom en, therefore, concentrate more than men, nlthough they do not seem to do so, the process being unconscious. That explains why, if n woman wants n thing nnd a man doesn't want her to hiio It, she always gets It. When a mnn wants u thing ho plans to get It Just as much ns he can through the ordinary processes of his mind and will. When n woman wnnts n thing she mnkes no plan nt nil but she gets It much more often than the man, because eer thing In her whole makeup, conscious nnd unconscious, is working for It. If jou want to sec conservation of energy and the perfection of efficiency watch the working of that perfectly co-ordinated machine a woman get tin;: a thing from a man that she wnnts. Life. High-Speed Telegraphy. A sevpn-lengue stride hns recently been made-In high-speed telegraphy.
