War and Pood.
One of the problems which the war
has brought to the women of Ger
many is a domestic- one end a diffi
culty which all housekeepers will
understand. No longer is an ordiilary
cook book of any value there because
dozens of things usually found in
markets and shops can no longer be
bought at any price. The government
has laid down certain rules as to the
amount of food stufFs wnich a family
may use. Can you imagine cooking
without butter, milk, and eggs? That
is what the German housewives are
doing. In the first. months of the
war two war cook books appeared,
but they are no longer of any use be
cause many of the ingredients called
for are no longer in market. The
Women's Magazine from month to
month prints new recipe3, using as
best they can the steadily decreasing
variety of food stufTs. Early in the
war all the oat meal in Gexmany was
gathered up for the horses to eat the
government eaid the horsds needed it
more than the people did. Some of
the food combinations made for the
sake of variety do not sound very
appetising as for example, beans
cooked with prunes, or a combina
tion of cabbage and apples. Back of
all the conservation of food is the
knowledge, or the fear at least, that
England will be able to carry out its
starvation plan, by forcing: Germany
to feed her own people without aid
from the world outside.

Aged Negreee, Many Years an Evan­
gelist, Is Carried into Alley Ev
ery Evening for Chance to
Breathe Cooling Air.
Heat Makes Hut Untenable for Even
This Dying, Disease-Racked Old
Waman-Can Scarcely Breathe
at Any Time.
Out in the outskirts of the city, in
a wretched hovel, an aged negro wom
an is gasping out her life. Terrible
.pain and suffering have furrowed her
.face. Her breath comes in great
Jerking gasps.
In the evenings, it Is necessary to
carry her wasted form out into the
alley, where she lies on a few strips
of burlap. The warm days make the
inside of the hut, which she calls
home, too hot for a human to bear.
'Her suffering is intense. Some
times unconsciousness comes and re
lieves her for a short time. Most
of tne time, she must lie on her back
,and suffer with pain.
Her Life Pathetic.
Secretary Glasscoff of the United
Charities, has interested himself in
the case of this old woman. He tells
a pathetic story about her. In middle
age she was converted, and thence
forth as an independent evangelist,
in the slums of the great cities of
,the south, and in the backward coun
try regions, she labored to win souls
irom sin. Her work was among the
densely Ignorant negroes of the
south. From their poverty they were
able to give but a small pittance for
her support
So it was, that as old age approach
ed, she was unable to save any
money to care for her in the sunset
life. Today she lies on her deathbed
awaiting the moment when the soul
may leave its earthly cloak, and
seek eternal rest.
Death Ccmes Soon.
But it will be several weeks before
death relieves her- suffering. In the
meantime, says Secretary Glasscoff,
it is possible for the people of Keo
kuk to greatly relieve this old wom
an's condition. It is useless, say doc
tors. to attempt to move ber to a hos
pital or to the county home. Her
condition is too serious, her strength
is too exhausted to admit of it. Be
sides, it would be useless for she can
never recover from this, her last ill
ness. It will be but a few weeks
now, until'the end comes.
Condition May Be Relieved.
In the meantime, with the expendi
ture of four or five dollars, her condi
tion could be made much less oppres
sive. With this amount of money It
will be possible to make purchases

Urged Congress to Take Up Several
Matters dnd Work for Early
WASHINGTON, July 18.—President
Wilson called at the capitol today to
urge personally that senate leaders
overturn the democratic caucus execu
tive program which would have de
ferred action on the national child
labor bill.
He asked, it is understood, an early
adjournment of congress. The cau
cus date of August 20 is satisfactory
to him. But he urged the child labor
bill and workmen's compensation act
be included in the program to be
completed by that time despite every
adverse consideration.
After the conference with the presi
dent, Senator Kern said he believed
any necessary changes in the execu
tive program could be affected with
out further caucusing. The president
in his talk with Martin who Is chair
man of the appropriations committee
asked that the committee aid in
speeding up the program.
President Wilson informed leaders
of the senate that he did not wish to
be notified of his nomination and to
begin his campaign until the child
labor and workmen's compensation
bills had been passed.
The fact of the president's call,
went through the capitol like wild
fire. The smoking rooms were crowd
ed with curious, puzzled and later
some angry senators.
He talked with Senators Kern, Mar-

Dally Stock Letter.
NEW YORK, July 18—The New
York Evening Sun financial review
today said: Aside from an easier
tendency in time and call money,
commercial paper and acceptances,
there was little of interest and noth
thing of importance In the financial
market this morning. The trading
on the stock exchange -was wholly
professional and of the same dull
and uninteresting character that
characterized Monday's business.
In the absence of public buying
for a new speculative Impulse, bear
ish traders sought to depress the
list from time to time, but they made
very little headway except in a few
of the specialties and weakness in
that quarter was fully offset by
strength elsewhere. Dullness rather
than price fluctuation in either direc
tion, however, was the outstanding
feature of the session.
Business was conducted on a scale
of small activity in the later trading
and speculative conditions were not
materially altered. Prices moved,
when at all, within a narrow range
and it was difficult at times to deter
mine any change.
The last half hour of trading took
on Increased heaviness and this com
municated to some extent to standard
issues and copper stocks. Bonds were
dull and Irregularly changed.

the campaign committee, the old
