TIIK OI.D-TIJIK TAIILK (From the Minneapolis Journal) Something was said about an honorary dinner In New York for General Pershing with 11 twenty-flve-dollnr-a-plato service; and the young housekeeper observed that this was bringing a week's rations on tho tablo at one meal. But Aunt Mary says it would havo been nothing much out of the ordinary. Aunt Mary can tell of setting hor tablo for the preacher nnd his wife, or for farm nelRhbors whose housewife had a reputa tion for good coolilng, where the menu rnn something like this: Piping hot mashed potatoes, whipped In cream and garnished with lumps of but ter; chicken stew with cream gravy and dumplings; warm raised biscuits and hot soda biscuits; chopped cabbage, celery; crabapple Jelly, spiced pears, raspberry Jam; beet pickles, sweet cucumber i",,' w '""u w " Pl"e , J Z caraway I ..

And Aunt Mary apologized to her guests because the peach shortcake was u little overdone, mid she was ashamed to bring it on the table. Lumberjacks who have eaten In Min nesota woods camps on a tlve-meal-.a-day schedule, remember bills of fare that would give a twenty-flve-dollar dinner of to-day n fair run for its money: Pot roast beef, chicken stow, cold sliced ham, all set out In large stew pans and oursclC; potatoes, plain, boiled and '"ashed, with two kinds of gravy; threo Kinus or picnics; raised bread, hot bls- cults with butter; sugar In open pans nnd a big spoon; stewed prunes, dried apple saueo; coda crackers, bugar cookies, gin ger snaps, raised cake; apple and peach plo; coffee and tea utiong enough to float ! -'g- And even at this, some of tho lumber jacks quit Uie Job and wont over to the next comp where they served hot griddle cakes and syrup three times a day. Almost anyone would leave a modern twenty-flv.i-dollar dinner for old-fashioned faro like that. WiHIX HViniYIIOIIY WORKS When ov'rybody goes to work.

This rise of the humblu bunny to a piuco iL i.unor uuuuv ,uU, a . u. shoulders Is the one fortunate tiling about this abnormal and unseasonable rage for furs. It has depleted the world s supply of nearly every other fur-bearing animal, because most of these animals ure wim ones, aim mo nigu prices oueieii The fur-bearing rabbit stands on an entirely different footing. He is esscn- tlnlly a domestic animal, and has boen for hundreds it not thousands ot years, Hence tho sudden demand for his pelt creasing them. A whole new Industry plants avail themselves of the op of rabbit farming has grown up In this portunlty to attend these courses. Many country In the past four years.

Ohio, Michigan and California nre especially good rabbit States A rabbit show will be held In every county In Mlchlgan this year. A great show was recently held In Cleveland, which Is a great rabbit center. Dallas, Texas, ls getting ready to hold a rabbit show ad- vertlsed as the greatest ever held any- nually ln tho whole United States. The number of rabbits In the country has multiplied many-fold nobody know3 how many We 'even have rabbit kings and rabbit plutocrats now. For example, shortly before the war a. certain man of Belgian birth in New York observed with lnter- est tho growth of 11 demand for tanned rabbit skins. It was wanted at that time chiefly for trimmings, but this man saw that tho demand would grow because oth er furs were becoming more and more hard to get. Furthermore this man knew all about the preparation of rnbblt skins. His father had made a business of tan . . . . ning and dyeing them in Belgium where thoy have been used to some extent for a long time. He therefore knew the val uo of a rabbit skin and how to treat It. Ho hired a barn In New Jersey, adver tised for rabbit skins nnd went to work. In 1915, he mado liSO.OOO. He is adver tising for ten million rabbit skins this year, Babbit fur Is not a high quality fur. When projierly clipped and dyed it ls often very pretty, nnd some very attrae- tlvo effects may be obtained by combln- ing different colors for example a coat made of rabbit fur dyed black, and trim- med with the fur of the blue rabbit lit Its natural color. Most rabbit fur Is clip- ped and dyed to resemble seal, and sold j us seallne or near seal. Thero Is a white variety which is Used as an Imlta- tlon of ermine.

But at that time beef und mutton were ebean. and there was no market for rabbit skins. Tho Belgian hare was ovor-adveithed, over-rated, and ultimately over-produced, Tho result was that many persons lost money and, thc Belgian hare fell Into iIIb repute. Tho domestic rabbit makes his Hecond debut In America under much more favor able auspices. Meat Is scarce mid high, and rabbit skins uro bringing prices that sometimes rungo ns high as l.m each.

THE NATIONAL GERM SUPPLY Efficacy of Vaccination Against Typhoid Fever Now Admitted Wnr Proved ft and Civilian an Well nn HoldlerM May Now Me Hen-' dered Immune, Free of Chora-. (By FnEpEllIC J, IIASKIN) If you live In a region where typhoid fevor occurB regularly, you should inako yourself Immune to this disease by vac cination. The cfllcacy of vaccination against ty phoid fever In one thing which tho war proved conclusively. Typhoid fever was practically eliminated from our army. This was dono partly by careful hygienic regulations, but tho uso of tho typhoid vaccne waH undoubtedly a large factor .,, co,muost 0f this disease, which has taken heavy toll of almost every other army. The scientists proved tho elllcncy of their typhoid vacclno by trying It on nnl' mas before they gave It to men. Hut they also proved Its value by actual results Dysentery, for example, which Is spread In exactly tho same ways as typhoid, was widely prevalent. An anti-dysentery t-erum has been devised but It was not widely or successfully used. It seems cer tain that the use of antl-typhold vaccine mado all of tho difference In prevalence between typhoid and dysentery. "Thero Is a disease very similar to ty phoid known rb paratyphoid. During the early part of tho war, vacclno against ty phoid only woa given, paratyphoid be came common. Organisms of this dis ease were then Included In tho doses of vaccine given, and paratyphoid nlso was practically eliminated. In the early stages of the war, when the use of the vaccine was still regarded as experimental, all of tho men of some reg- Iments were vaccinated, while all of those of others, living under similar conditions l were left unvacclnated. The occurrence most persons do not seem to realize that It Is possible to make themselves Immune to this disease by a simple and Inexpen sive operation. At present, vaccination against typhoid Is not only Inexpensive, but Is free to nil American citizens. An order was Is-I sued during the war directing the public health service to vaccinate against ty - phold fever any clvlliuns who applied for such treatment. The order ls still in station nearest your home and apply for " cV' a " w "LV .n..iai-. iiiu .....v ei also offer it free. Homo of the State health departments are Just as competent as tho reuerai neann service, dui mis is not true of all of them. It would be well to go to a public health officer if possible, for the vaccines and serums made in the fnctured. Few Americans realize that a great lab- oratory Is maintained ln Washington for Congress. There was something to" re the purpose of protecting tho public commend the practice then because com agalnst Inferior and fraudulent Berums munlcation between different parts of tho nnd vaccines. Nor do many of them real- country was very slow and because tho Ize what enormous quantities of these average man was too busy wresting 11 preparations are made and used, nor how living from the soil and In reducing tho essential they nro to the maintenance of (back country to give much thought' or health. Small pox -acclnc Is tho only attention to national politics. But even one of thes-o preparations that is well j the voters of thut early dato sickened known to the public. Yet antl-dlptherla quickly of leaving the selection of their esurm und untl-tetanlc serum are now the standard remedies against dlptherla and tetanus. Typhoid vaccine has become recognized as an almost sure prevcntlvo of that disease. Rabies, or hydrophobia, one of the most terrlblo diseases known. can bo cured surely by the use of biolog ical product and in no other way This use of germs and germ products In combating disease ls one of the lines along 1 which medical science Is advancing most! rapidly. It is ono of tho most cheering phases of civilization's bnttlo against (lis- ease and death. New serums and vac - clncs are being experimented with con - stantly. Right now, for example, tho by gienlc laboratory Is experimenting with antl-pneumococcus serum, which is a ser um designed to prevent pneumonia. It al ready seems certain that this scrum does good tn snmo cases and against some forms of tho disease. All of the person nel of the hygienic laboratory havo been Inoculated with this serum as a part of their experiments. In all, tho laboratory has about 10,000 persons under observation who havo been treated with this serum. Ono of tho great dreams and hopes of medical science Is a serum or vaccine which will cure tuberculosis. This seems to bo tho best hope of a specific cure for that disease. Many such serums and vac cines have been brought to the public health service by men who devised them, and all have been thoroughly tested on animals In tho hygienic laboratory. The oretically, It should bo possible to pro duce a biological specific for tuberculosis, but so far none has been produced good enough to Justify the public health ser vice in licensing Its manufacture. For no serum or vaccine can be sold In Interstate trade, Imported or exported In this country, without n license from the public health servlco. This means, in ef fect, that all manufacturers ore licensed nnd supervised by tho public health ser vice. It means thut this service guaran tees us a puro-germ supply, Just as tho department of agriculture tries to guar antee us a pure food supply. These biological products, which play such n largo and growing part in the bat tle against disease, are chiefly of two kinds. The vaccines nro preparations con taining the nctuftl germs of the disease, sometimes dead und sometimes alive. The scrums are made from the blood of ani mals infected, with the disease It Is de sired to combat, and they contain tho protective principle which the body man ufactures In fighting tho disease. Thus, when you nre vaccinated against typhoid fever, there Is injected Into your body about hnlf a billion germs of tho disease, which have been raised In tho body of (in animal. These germs produce a very mild form of tho disease In you, causing you little discomfort but causing your body to manufacture the protective principle which kills the disease. This principle protects you from typhoid for a period of from one to four years. When you hnvo diphtheria, on the other hand, thn doctor Injects Into your body the actual protective substance against that disease which has been formed In tho blood of an animal Infected with tho disease. It is evident that tho manufacture ot these biological remedies is a highly scien tific process. A layman has absolutely no means of knowing whether a serum sold or administered to him is any good or not. Thnt is why It Is so important that the manufacture of theso products should bo under government control. If It were not ho controlled, the possibilities of damage, buth by delbrate fraud and by Ignorance, would bo enormous. Tho publio health service manufactures in its own hyglenlo laboratory all of tho serums and vaccines tho valuo of which' has been conclusively proved. It makris these products as well as they can bo made, and proves their value by tests. It then sends samples to all tho manu facturers. These samples nro tho Stand ards to which the manufacturer must con form. About twlco a year, tho plant of every manufacturer Is Inspected and his product tested, to sec that ho docs con form to this standard, In addition to this, tho service has buyers In the field nil thu time, buying lots of theso products of fered to the public and bringing them to tlio laboratory to bo tested. Tho control of the government over this business Is really autocratic. It may re fuse a license to any manufacturer, and It may take off the market any quantity of a product which does not come up to the standard set for It. The hygienic lab oratory discovers many batches of serum and anti-toxin which are not up to stand ard, and which must be taken off tho market. Animals In great numbers nre of course indispensable to this whole business. Se rum and vaccines aro mado In the bodies of ntilinals and testid in tlm bodies of an imals. An itrmy of rabbits, guinea pigs, mice and dogs Is necessary to insure us this protection against disease. Ilecently attempts have been mado to prevent the uso of animals for tills purpose. Tho ques tions raised by this attempt will ho dis cussed In a future llnskln letter. FOIt IIOMK FOLKS TO DKCIDB (From the St. Albans Dally Messenger) The Morrlsvlllo News and Citizen make public the following letter from Con gressman Frank L. Greene In connection with tho mention of the congressman's name for n place on the Vermont dele gation to attend the next national con vention of the Republican party: "Washington, D. C, Nov. 7, 1913. "Editor News and Citizen: "Your editorial referring to the pos sibility of my heading the Vermont de legation to the next ltepublicun national convention Is very complimentary, but you nro quite within the mark when you say, ' but we understand he doesn't want to be on It.' 'I thank you for your generous good will as was then expressed, but 1 feel that this Is one of the times when I should 'stand back.' "I am very seriously of the opinion, (and long have been long before I camu down here) that we people on the Ver mont delegation In Congress can well af ford to let thc folks at homo have un divided disposition of all such political opportunities us this. Indeed, I think wn ought to do so. We are getting our chance down here and it Is a very gen erous one. Tho people at home are con siderate and we have nothing to corn- plain about In that way. On tho other hand, the opportunities for Vcrmontera to become engaged are necessarily limited by reason of limited numbers, and that means, of course, that only now and then some of our neighbors have one ot these opportunities. It has never seemed (right to me that we folks who are In ii 'national council should be making any attempt to hold seats ln other councils) r tt national character to the exclusion . a na,lonal, cna,rer to tne of 80m0 RO0(1 fe!ow nt hOm0. -of course, there may be some special OCCMl0nR w"cn. 11 s "es.rame to em. some ono 01 tno Vermont uuieKitwuu somewhere like this, because of his own personality and the peculiar fitness of his election. But you and I know that theso occasions nre rare. "Always with fraternal regards, 1 am "Sincerely yours, Frank L. Greene." Mr. Greene's position Is a sound ohe. The country In Its early history per mitted its presidential candidates to bo nominated by party caucuses In tha candidates to politicians In Washington and as a consequence the national con vention came Into existence. It ls well to have tho peoplo at liomn do tho nominating through their dele gates also taken from home. Tho man In Washington may often times be too near the conter of tho political whirlpool ' to make his Judgment sound. It has been said that tho last place In the world to get the real pulse of tho country is In Washington. Washington is in a senso removed and dttached from the rcitt of 1 tho country, which Isn't so much of u 1 paradox as it may at first appear. Thon. the men In the Congress get mixed up more or lets ln all manner of each other's personal ambitions so that often times) unavoidably they view things ln a muoh different light than thut of tho ordinary man. So, unless the conditions aro unusual, us Mr. Greene says, It Is better for the people and better for tho men in Con gress, to leave the selection of candidate to tho men at home. A delegation ot home folks can always get the advice ot the congressional delegation and make such use of It as is wise. It Is not necei ary to have the Washington folk on the delegation in order to make their ex perience and knowledge accessible.
