The housekeepers are all in accord on the subject of saving food and using substitutes and have their time fully occupied with vari ous war industries. It was further determined that each woman present was to develop and fully test a practical receipt whereby both saving and substitutes would be promoted, that these should be brought to the chairman who In turn would have them printed in the various newspapers of the county. Some of the receipts are to be espec ially applicable to Thanksgiving and Chirstmas dinners.

Saner Kraut The following directions for mak ing sauer-kraut are timely: A layer of shredded cabbage four to six Inches in depth is placed in the bottom of the cask or par. Dairy salt/ or the best grade of table salt is sprinkled over the surface at the rate of one pound of salt to forty pounds of cabbage. The layer added is bruised or Damped with a hard wood surface, similar to a large wooden potato masher, layer is added, salted and tamped, until the par or cask is heaping full. If desired, a few* juniper berries may be added to give a distinct flavor. A quantity of loose cjabbage leaves, thoroly rinsed, is laid over the kraut and a porcelain plate or perforated wooden cover fitted to the inside of the jar, is placed on. A clean stone is placed on to weight the lid down as the process of curing progresses. If tamping has been thoroly done, contents of par, other than the stone weight, will be covered with liquid. Protection from dust particles apd flies may be provided by tying several layers of cheese cloth securely over the jar. , Kraut made early in the season, cures in from sixteen to twenty days. Later in the season, the curing pro cess continues for three or four weeks. Since a temperature of 69 64 degrees Fahrenheit is most fav orable to the bacteriolgical action which effects the curing, it is best to place the cask or jar in a cellar or cave. Several days should be al lowed after the kraut is cured before it is used. The curing process completed when bubbles cease to rise at the edge of the jar. This can be determined by removing the cloth cover occasionally. Another is The cabbage leaves, with possibly a thin layer of discolored kraut, will need to be discarded from the top the jar. Properly cured kraut is a rich light yellow color, and may taken from the jar as needed for the table use or market purposes, if suf ficient liquid is left to keep the maining quantity covered continu ally Ways of Using Kraut When Pork Plentiful Kraut and Pork Chops Broil the pork chops in a pian.

MAP PITTSBURG, Pa.—The Pennsyl vania city editors' association wants to see the name of "Berlin," as ap plied to a town or city, wiped off the map of the United States. To effect this it is sending the following letter to the mayor of burgess of every place carrying the name: "There is only one Pershing, and we wish we had more; there are a great many Berlins, and each is one too many It is respectfully sug gested that your community begin the new year with a Pershing. "Will you do it?" H. R. Kroh, president of the Pen nsylvania organization, siaid the Idea came when he read that a village in central Illinios had taken the name of Pershing. ''That there should be new name— some twenty-five or more 'Berlins' and only one 'Pershing' seemed l;_: thing that called for, a quick and ready remedy, hence the suggestion." some ♦ MISS MOORE TO LEAVE FOR FRANCE Miss Helene Moore, daughter of Dr. ahd Mrs. I.

LIERER-WALKER MARRIAGfe Miss Della Lierer of Aberdeen and Roy Walker of Blackfoot were mar ried Monday night Oct. 14, 1918 at the court house. The ceremony was preformed by Oscar L. Rider. ,. The disease now occurring in this country and called "Spanish Influ e nza," resembles a very contagious * ind of cold, accompanied by fev er > Pains in the head, eyes, ears, back or other part of the body, and a feel *"8 of severe sickness. In most of the cases the symptoms disappear in three or four days, the patient then rapidly recovering; some of the pa tients however, develop pneumonia °f jnflamation of the ear, or menin 8itis, and many of these complicated cases die. Whether this co-called Spanish" influenza is identical with the epidemics of influenza of earlier years is not yet known. There is as yet no certain way in which a single case of "Spanish in fluenza" can be recognized; on the other hand recognition is easy where there is a group of cases. In cOn trast to the outbreaks of the ordinary coughs and colds, which usually oc cur in the cold months, epidemics of influenza may occur at any season of the year, thus the present epidem ic raged most intensely in Europe in May, June and July. Moreover, in the case of ordinary colds, the gen eral symptoms (fever, pain, depres sion) are by no means as severe or as sudden in their onset as they are m influenza. Finally, ordinary colds do not spread through the communi ty so rapidly or so extensively as does influenza. In most cases a person taken sick with influenza feels sick rather sud denly. He feels weak, has pains in the eyes, ears, head or hack, and may be sore all over. Many patients feel dizzy, some vomit. Most of the pa hents complam of being chilly, and with this comes a fever in which the temperature rises to 100 to 104. In most cases the pulse remains rela tively slow. In appearance one is struck with the fact that the patient looks sick His eyes and the inner side of his eyelids may be slightly bloodshot, congested, as the doctors say. There may be running from the nose or there may be some cough. These signs of a cold may not be marked; nevertheless the patient looks and feels very sick. Ordinarily, the fever lasts from three to four days and the patient recovers. But while the proportion of deaths in the present epidemic has generally been low, in some places the outbreak has been severe and deaths have been numerous. When death occurs it is usually the result of a complication. It is very important that every person becomes sick with influenza should .8° home at once and go to bed This will help keen away dan gerous complications and will, at the same time, keep the patient from scattering the disease far and wide. It is highly desirable that __ allowed to sleep in the same room with the patient. In fact, no one but the nurse should be allowed in the room.

Mrs. Trego has received another interesting letter from Mr. Kutnew sky, which .relates a few instances pretaining to French customs. lowing are a few paragraphs taken from his last letter: September Dear Mrs. Trego: I am in the big city of our neigh borhood ,on pass for the day. Three [ of us hired bicycles and came here this morning. We have spent quite a few francs already and there supper. But a very good dinner at nice, well patronized cafe, with good vin blanc only cost us 4 francs and 50c. entimes or 90 cents. At a sta tionary store I bought this "boc" paper—100 sheerjts for 4 fracs— 80 cents. I am writing in a cafe where "vin ordinaire'' costs 75 centimes a glass (15 cents,) where one sits down dream all afternoon over a bottle, or visit, or calls for d'e'crire" and writes, pretty 'women, decorated French of ficers, soldiers, loaiers and we three.

Stopping at a little inn or "auberge" we had a fire built , . . . and dried out a bit, bet a French poilu from Verdun, had a little glass, petite verre" and on to the next vil ldge.

If the patient is so situated that he the family, it is advisable that such attendant wear a wrapper, apron or gown over the ordinary house clothes while in the sick room, and slip this off when leaving to look after the others. Nurses and attendants will do well to guard against breathing in dan gerous disease germs by wearing a simple fold of gauze or mask while near the patient. In guarding against disease of all kinds it is important that the body be kept strong'and able to fight off disease germs. This can be done by having a proper proportion of work, play and rest, by keeping the body well clothed, and by eating suffic ient, wholesome and properly select ed food. In connection with diet, it is well to remember that milk is one of the best all round foods obtainable for adults as well as children. So far as a disease like influenza is con cemed health authorities everywhere recognize the very close relation be tween its spread and over crowded homes. While it is not always pos sible, especially in times like the present, to avoid such over-crowding, people should consider the health danger and make every effort to re duce the home over-crowding to a minimum- The value of fresh air through open windows cannot be ov emphasized. Where crowding is unavoidable, as street cars, care should be taken keep the face so turned ds not to inhale directly the air breathed out another person. It is especially important to be ware of the person who coughs or sneezes without covering his mouth nose. It also follows that one should keep out of crowds and stuffy places as much as possible,, keen homes, offices and workshops well aired, spend some time out of doors each day. Walk to work if at all practicable—in short make every possible effort to breathe as much I pure air as possible. "Cover up each cough and sneeze. If you don't you'll spread disease."!

The law limits us to 26 cento per flOO valuation roads and 10 cents per $100 valuation for bridges For years past Bingham county commis sioners have used all the law allows and have in some instances, added thereto any and all surplus from other funds, and still eur roads great worry. Our county Is valued at about $14 - ,000,000. We all realize it is worth much more, but we hardly feel right about confessing it to the assessor, If we are to have better roads there are only two methods of acquiring them open to us i, e, we must either raise the value of ' the county to nearer its actual value or bond the county for a sufficient amount to supply the money, Hundreds of us have only lately petitioned the commissioners for a bond issue, specifying about ten miles of road upon which we recom mend using the money. In addition to this the federal Indian depart ment has charged that our county is responsible for the condition of the °rt Hall road because it has refused to do its part in paying for the same, n view of this petition and the Fort Han road situation our commission s have decided to put the matter P to you, my fellow citizen, in the rm of an election to vote bonds in the amount of about $250,000. The money thus derived will be spent in making about twenty-three miles of Pavement and in erecting a new bridge over Snake river, where the lon K condemned Porterville bridge °w stands.
