ENTHUSED OVER IT What The Do For Not very many years ago in the history of the world, the man that lived in America had to hunt for his food, or go without Now he sits down at a table and decides what he wants to eat; or his wife calls up the market and has it sent home for him. And what he gets is incomparably better. Everyone of us has some part in the vast human machine, called society; ' that makes all this conven ience possible. - The packer's part is to prepare meat and get it to every part of the country sweet and fresh to obtain it from the stock raiser, to dress it, cool it, ship it many miles in special refrig gerator cars, keep it cool at distrib uting points, and get it into the consumer's hands your hands through retailers, all within about two weeks. For this service so perfect and effective that you are scarcely aware that anything is being done for you you pay the packers an average profit of only a fraction of a cent a pound above actual cost on every pound of meat you eat Swift & Company, U.

President and Cashier of Lou isiana and Georgia Banks are Strong in Their Indorsements. Among the countless thousands of prominent people all over America who have taken Tanlac and praised it for the benefits they de rived from it, none are more enthu siastic than the two well-known south ern bankers whose statements follow: 2. J. Henry, president of the Haw- i kinsville Bank" and Trust Co.", Haw- 1 kinsville, Ga., says: "Last spring I j was all wrong some way or other and couldn't get right. I took a bottle of Tanlac and Cetfan to improve. Twc more bottles put me in pood shape and I felt perfectly well. A few weeks ago I took the Grippe and was getting down and out again. I bought another bottle of Tanlac and I am well again. I unhesitatingly recommend Tanlac to anyone who is sick and wornout." W. C. McElveen, Cashier Bank of Ilornbeck, Hornbeck, Louisiana, says: ' I have taken five bottles of Tanlac and have pained fifteen pounds in three weeks. I think it is a great medicine.' Tanlac is sold by Street's Drug Store. TO MV CUSTOM KHS.

ETniE, Ceontaijt JACr.tON, MIMIMIPf! Less sinxable ship coming Hull Consist! of Two Parallel Cyllr drlcal Shells Joined Throughout Length by Diaphragm. The French government has coth traded with the Foundation company, which Is building wooden ships for the Emergency Fleet corporation, to turn out for It five cargo "uonstnkable ships" of 4,200 tons dead weight The hull of these ships, says the New York Sun, la to consist of two parallel cylindrical shells Joined throughout their length by a series of heavily braced diaphragms. Each cyl indrical shell Is divided not only into watertight compartments by trans verse bulkheads, but also Is Isolated entirely from the adjoining shell and from the sealed space between the two. The latter space, which has a watertight bottom and deck, Is not used for cargo, but Is provided solely for rserve buoyancy. "It should not be called an unslnk able ship," said Mr. Boero. "I would call It rather one of the less sink able ships. It Is seldom that a ship has received more than one torpedo. It Is extremely Improbable that a ship will be struck by torpedoes on both sides. We have tested an experi mental de-ilga thoroughly at Paris, and have found it entirely satisfac tory. The space required for the spe cial hull construction does not mate rially lessen the bulk of cargo that can be carried. We are convinced that the ship will keep afloat after it as been torpedoed." JUST SIMPLE COMMON SENSE Really Nothing to Be Alarmed About When Speaker Uses Pretentious Word "Psychology." One way to get an audience nowa days Is to call the subject of one's talk "Psychology." A Harvard pro fessor recently amazed a convention of clothing manufacturers and deal ers by delivering an address upon this topic, In which he laid down several principles about the effect of clothing Upon the wearer, and the surprise of his hearers was due to the discovery that what the learned man had digni fied by a long word was nothing more thon what more commonly passes for common sense. A good many of the thiugs he said were already known to them, If they had stopped to think. When he placed thera under the head of psychology they sat up and took notice, says the Oregonlan. lie said, for example, that the well dressed man Is 10 per cent more effi cient than the poorly dressed man. He said that clothes that do not fit pre vent the wearer from doing his best. Cleanliness promotes Belf -respect. Self respect Is contagious, like confidence. The man who does not think well of himself is unlikely to win the good opinion of others. Comfortable cloth ing, made of good material, well brush ed, was the foundation of the super structure, he said. He was talking to hard headed business men, and they believed him, because their own expe rience showed his statements to bo true. "; Hapless ClarlbePt Encounter. The sun was slowly sinking in the usual place. Claribel Sklppenhop, over whose youthful head scarce thirty-seven summers had lightly flown, sat in a regulation-size hammock, idly swinging her foot to the tune of "Keep the Home Liars Squirming," played on a Hottentot bagpipe 42 miles away. Suddenly a thought seized her. She tried to scream and break Its hold. She succeeded in both. Probably one and fifteen elght-mllllontha of a cubic second was allowed to elapse between ber scream and the time the thought was cowering at her feet "Avaunt," she cried. "Dent you know this is ray thoughtless day? Now, doggone it, I'll have a headache." Then she went back to swing her foot and the hammock. First-Hand Earthquake News. A volcologlst of the Carnegie Geophysical laboratory reports that he has nearly perfected apparatus for re cording upon wax cylinders the subter ranean sounds of earthquakes, says the Scientific American. "The ordi nary commercial cylinders are unsuit able for this delicate work, and accord ingly the laboratory has secured a sup ply of cylinders of the old. pure wax type. The microphone used In this con nection has also been greatly Improved end a perfect little portable field outfit weighing less than a pound has been evolved." Naughty Mamma's Boy. My husband, who Is at Camp Sher man, wrote home and told us this Joke the boys played on a "mamma's boy" who was the goat of the whole com pany. One night while he was over to the Y. M. C. A. they fixed up the head of his cot with sticks and tied a string to them, then waited nntll be got sound asleep and pulled the strings, out came the sticks and itown went the bed. lie nearly exploded he was so mad and my husband said bad you been lis tening you could have heard him swearing clear home. Chicago Trib une. All In Some Day. One day at a Southern camp one ol the negro soldiers was showing me a service pin with three stars which he always carried In his pocket I asked him who the relatives were and he re plied: "One is fo' maself an' th other two Is fo' ma brudders; one Is going to enlist an the other Is In the nejrt draff-Exchange.

GENERAL SUGAR la sugar necessary in the diet? Neither cane nor beet sujfar Is necessary. In the average American diet allthesuj?ar needed may ordi- narily be supplied by using honey, sirups, fresh, pre served and dried fruits. What are the general sugar saving rules? Use all sugar sparingly and wherever possible use other sweeteners. Be sparing of confections and ! sweet cakes. The American people last year spent enough money for candy to feed all Belgium for two years. Supplement sugar with honey and sirups. Cultivate a taste for fruit in its natural sweetness. Sugar is a fuel food. Get fuel from potatoes and other starchy foods rather than from sugar. Sugar excels them as an energy-food onVy because it pro duces energy more quickly. They excel sugar since they Bupply more than merely the fuel need. How may the sugar ration be expressed in quantities known to everyone? Two pounds per month means about 8 ounces per week, or a little more than 1 ounce a day. This daily ration is a trifle more than 2 tablespoons level full. It should be remembered that this is to include all sugar used for any purpose whatsoever for table use, cooking, in ice cream and desserts, on cereals or fruit, in Bugar sirups used on griddle cakes, etc. I'OK SALE Have quite a number of delta plantations for sale cheap.
