Eugene Hutchinson had .the mis
fortune of loosing all of hiB horses.
Getting up one morning he found
one dead and not long after another
one died. He called a veternarian,
but they couldn't determine what the
cause was. When the third one died
they decided it was caused by feeding
the hay that had laid out in the rain.
Being wet too long had caused
poisonous growth on the hay.

Iron cylinder five meters In diameter,
ln which a pair of Mg metal wings are

turbine. The fluid Is lashed to foam
and dried by the aldYtf a hot current
of air that Is continually passed
through the cylinder. The dried prod

will keep for a long time and can be
most economically transported. The
dried products go through no chemical
process and are directly soluble In wa

treating about 140,000 eggs a day will
be erected shortly In Berlin and

Russian churches in Alaska have
hard times making both ends meet

Many of the churches contain valuable
paintings and jeweled robes.

Four hundred thousand persons and
more served In the cafeteria in one
year is the record of the Y. W. C. A.
Hostess House at Camp Lewis, Amer

The majority of the 490,000 diners
were mothers, wives, sweethearts and
friends who went to the camp to visit
their soldiers. The remainder were
soldiers themselves who broke the mo

meals. In addition to all these guests,
25.000 little children were cared for In
the nursery and the rest room served
70.000 tired wives and mothers.

When the war work of the Y. W. C.

the most Interesting stories will He ln
the establishment of the first Women's
Co-operative Association at Moscow.
There day after day princesses work
side by side with peasant girls, wives
of high Russian officials make dresses
or trim hats at long tables with simple,
unlettered women, and the money Is
used for self support of these prin
cesses and notable women as well as
for the peasant classes.
The need and suffering throughout
all Russia was so great at the time
tbe Association was established that
was a problem to find where the
money would help the greatest num
ber of people. It was thought best to
expend It to help capitalize organiza

opportunities to families and Individu

Y name Is May Isabel Carna
han. I am eighteen years
old, and I work In a big fac
tory In l^lchlgan. More than four
hundred other glrjq work there too.
I don't aim to tell yon about our Jobs.
You can read about our work In the
labor department reports. But I do
aim to tell you about our Big Slater
and of the things she has done for us.
"To begin with, our factory town
Isn't a town at all It's a huge bam
of buildings stuck down In the country
nineteen miles from nowhere. There
I Is a railroad siding, a station the size
of a dry goods box, seven farmhouses
and one general store and postoffice
I combined—It'spretty near as big as a
hot tamale stand. And that's all. No
Main street, no banks nor stores, no
Ice-cream parlors, not one solitary
I movie show, tn all those nineteen
miles. Lonesome? It's the ragged
edge of desolation, that's what it is.
"I was one of the first carload of
forty girls that was shipped up from
I Chicago. The factory was swarming
with workmen putting in the machin
ery, and we girls couldn't begin work
for a day or so, so we began hunting
places to eat and sleep. That was a
trifle that the employment folks hadn't
thought of. The workmen were sleep
ing and eating in the cars that had
I brought them there, backed on the
siding. Our only chance for beds and
food was with those seven farmhouses,
so we marched straight to the farmers'
wives and asked for board and room.
Farmers' Wives Hospitable.
I "I will say that thosewomen were kind
and hospitable. They fixed it up be
tween them to fled us forty'girls, and
I they gave us good food too. But for
I rooms, that was the question. They
could each spare one room. That
meant sleep five or six In a room. But
r, « ht then alon * cam * the boss of the
factory and told us the machinery was
ready and he'd expect ue girls to work
double shifts, night and day.
"He' wanted to make use of every
minute, you see. But that gave us our
chance as to sleeping. We fixed It up
with the farm folks that we'd work
double shifts and sleep double shifts
So we planned It Three girls
would use a room from eight at night

three girls who'd been working all
till six the next morning. Then they'd

"ft ^ take the room and sleep
till afternoon. It wasn t any luxuri
ous slumber, believe me. The farm
women had so few sheets and pillow
cases that most of us went without.
And towels were scarce as diamonds
on blackberry bushes. As to soap—
well, the general store kept yellow bar
soap, that kind that is so full of rosin
you could use It to calk a ship. But
we made out till the next three car
loads of girls came rolling In. Then
we went 'most distracted. Those poor
