"Pa," answered the youthful Geo. Washington, "I cannot tell a lie; I did .not touch, one." The parent eyed his child wrath fully. "Then how is it," he asked sternly, "that I found three pear cores in your bedroom and only one pear left in the cupboard?" Willie dissolved rapidly toward the garden gate. "Father," he said, "that is the one I didn't touch." CHAMBERLAINS TABLETS. When you are troubled with, indi gestion or constipation, take Cham berlain's Tablets.

FLOUR PLUS WATER IS HARD BREAD EQUIVALENT. (Stars and Stripes.) The girls of France are helping to bake the millions of. pie'cof iron urtrdu it, uuras tu iceu me jx. jh. r . Working Under the glass roofs of a half dozen buildings of "many-acred floors, they are helping tend the au tomatic machinery that mixes white flour from America into sheets, cuts the sheets into pieces, and runs the pieces on trays over endless belts into ovens, from which they come out scorching hot as hard biscuits. No hands touch the product from the time it leaves the flour sack to the time it comes out crisp and brown and hot. While the hard bread is still warm, it is packed in the paper cartons in which it finally reaches the men at the front. Incidentally, hard bread is probably the simplest and purest baked pro duct the soldier eats. It has two in gredients flour and water. There's an art in mixing the flour and water in the proper percentages, and the percentages vary according to the flour. The army's hard bread factories also are baking "petits beurres" for the army the best of those little but ter and sugar biscuits that can be bought in France. These are suppli ed at cost to the commissaries for re sale to the soldiers. J Hi Hi SHIP WITH A BASEMENT. (Popular Mechanics) An interesting and unusual piece of engineering has changed a ship, which for years has been the floating home of sailors, into a land structure that will never ride the waves again. The vessel so transformed is the Com modore, which lay at anchqr. in the Chicago River in days of peace, spr ing as headquarters for the Illinois naval militia. Since the outbreak of the war it has served as a receiving ship for the navy. Since the vessel was. never to be used for navigation again and was being badly racked by storms, it was recently decided to fill in around the hull with clay and rock. A. bulk head, made of rock and forty-foot piles, was built close to the boaf on the lakeward side and at -the ends and the intervening space filled in with clay, well tamped down.

(adv-jan) Hi wb ttl NEW USE TOR THE WHITE EAT, For the first time, so far as is gen erally known, the albino rat has been adapted to a useful purpose. It was conceded to be less destructive and in all ways less disagreable than its gray cousin, but it had never been credited with usefulness in the econ-. omy of nature. Now it comes into importance as a barometer for the use of high-flying aviators. The rodent inclosed in a suitable cage,, is placed : within view of the pilot. The latter, when high altitudes have been reach ed' notes the conduct of the rat. When the animal begins to show symptoms of weariness, the aviator knows that the limit of safety has been reached and he turns the prow of his craft downward. It is said that wliite rats are now being systematically raided, and are in great demand as barome ters. 191 155 TBI If the truth could be discovered probably it would be found that the average Queen's position is that the poor people would save a lot more money"if 4they didn't, spend it for .food. , , ' , ........
