Let the merchants aud others who need these home-grown products buy from the home man.* Give him the benefit of the middle man's profits. Among other things, there will be home-cured meat, the best in the world ; give him full^market price for it. Corn is now bringing about $1.25 per bushel. Don't try to get it any cheaper. The grower needs all it is worth. On the other hand, Mr. Farmer, you will need many things for the winter. Don't use the catalogues which are now flooding the mails. Buy from the home man.

That housing the people still lacks * facts to make It a science was shown in a late discussion by Prof. S. M. Gunn of the Massachusetts Institute of Tech nology. Among the recently acquired bits of knowledge is that consumption Is not a house disease, as even Koch— the discoverer of its active agent— thought, but Is one that Is transmitted by the sick man himself» Infant dis ease, too, is not due to the house, chief causes being ignorance of the parents, economic conditions and racial factors. Considerations of sunlight and ventila tion complicate the problem of housing reform. Long exposure to sunlight has effected cures, but Just what is its spe cial influence in homes is yet to be made known. Professor Gunn is in clined to credit it with psychological value, as the well-lighted house offers such health factors as cheerfulness, ab sence of dirt and inspiration to effort. The actual value of outdoor air is a matter of like uncertainty. Fresh air Is best for man when it can be had, but experiments have shown that there is not the real danger in breathed-over air we were once taught. In crowded factory districts, where the supply of outdoor air is restricted, feelings of op pression may be prevented by such measures as controlling circulation, temperature and humidity. In the con trol of winter heating, education is needed. Houses are notoriously over heated and the air from furnaces is hot properly fed with moisture. With air dampened without taking its mois ture from the human body and the furniture, comfort Is reached at a lower temperature than with dry air, coal being saved. FINALLY OVERTAKEN BY FATE Neat Comment Made by Brother Officer When Informed of Illness of Well-Known Looter. Liéut. Ben L. Maloney, who Is a well-known figure on auto row and who directed a government motor truck company in Texas last summer, tells a story of the famous Chinese Boxer campaign. "A certain officer In the American forces failed to preserve the high reputation of his corps in the matter of looting," said Lieutenant Maloney. "Whereas most American soldiers earned the respect and gratitude of the Chinese by the way in which they refrained from robbing the natives, this one officer vied with the Euro peans in gathering loot. He was es pecially partial to ancient brass and bronze vases and jars, which In this country would be of inestimable value, and he literally grabbed up every such curio he could lay his hands on. "One day the star looter of the Yankee contingent fell ill and was sent to the field hospital. Two fellow officers were discussing his case. "'What's the matter with Captain *—— ?' inquired one. "*Oh, suppose he's finally fallen a victim to verdigris^ poisoning,' said the other." ' Hans von Bleichroder. Hans von Bleichroder, one of the two principal partners of Bleic-hroder & Co., bankers, Berlin, Germany, died a short time ago at the age of sixty four. The banking firm of Bleichroder & Co. came Into international prominence when it helped Bismarck finance the war against France, and Hans von Bleichroder was ennobled at that time. His son, Hans, Jr., was killed In action on the Warsaw front, August 1,1915. At one time the son was secretly en gaged to Princess Sophia of Sax-Wei mar, who committed suicide in 1913 be cause, it was alleged, her father, Prince William, would not permit her mar riage. Young Bleichroder studied bank ing in New York in 1910. The marriage was opposed not so much because young Baron von Bleichroder was be neath the princess in rank, but be cause he was a Jew and refused to re nounce his creed. Tho elder Bleich roder is said to have been worth more than $40,000,000. Hope for Benefit From War. The Boston park shelters about 1,400 animals, ranging from elephants, buf falo and lions to guinea pigs. There has been a little falling off in numbers since the war began, as the European dealers, through whom most of the supply of wild animals came, have in many cases been put out of business by war conditions. It seems quite like ly that the war will force the business of supplying wild animals into new: channels, and, perhaps, bring Amer ican zoological gardens into close rela tions with the source of supply, espe cially in Africa, which excels all the rest of the world in the variety and abundance of its large animals. Important Chinese City. Hankow is in tbe heart of China', 600 miles from the ocean, with which the Yangtze river is the only practicable communication. It is a flourishing city with many modern conveniences, and with a trade passing through the mari time customs of $118,940,933 in 1915, exclusive of treasure and coins, which amounted to $20,957,909. Its foreign trade equaled that pf the port pf Bal timore in 1914. Just Starts 'Em Off. Mrs. Smith—You say you never gos Mrs. Smart—Never.
