The Secretary of Agriculture of the United States has addressed the following letter to the mayors of all large cities which have no reduc tion plants for recovering valuable materials from garbage : "This department desires to bring to your at tention the matter of the conservation of the garbage in your city. At the present time there exists throughout the world a shortage of both fats and fertilizers materials, promises to grow more serious as the war in Eu rope continues. It is therefore a matter of prime importance that all available sources of both of these materials should be used to the best advant age. Garbage contains on the average about 2 per cent, of grease and about 20 per cent, of tank age, the latter having valuable properties as a fertilizer material. Any method of disposal of garbage in large cities which does not recover This situation both the grease and the tankage is uneconomic and particularly deplorable in the present circum stances. We wish, therefore to urge upon your consideration the advisability of so treating the garbage from your city as to insure the recovery | 1 of its constituents. That this may be made a source of profit to a municipality has been proven by numbers of cities in the United States where municipal rendering plants have been erected, and in a number of others, private plants are now op erating and paying dividends on trie investments. We will be glad to furnish you with any further information at our disposal on the subject, upon request." te te te te te te te Dr. W. A. Evans, of Chicago, who conducts a "How' to Keep Well" column in a number of daily papers, including the Memphis Commercial Ap peal, recently interviewed a large number of sol diers and sailors in regard to the new provisions against drunkenness and venereal diseases em ployed by and reputed to be presently employed by the army and navy. The following is an excerpt of his report of his findings ; "The soldiers and sail ors with whom I talked say, all right, they will stand for it, although they are not for it, but they do object to being singled out. If they are to be under prohibition they want the other fellow to be under it- If prohibition promotes efficiency and health in an army, 'as you fellows say it does,' ' it also promotes them in the men who clerk, sell goods, work in factories, raise crops, argue in court, and practice medicine. If women are to be denied them, then they want theih denied to other men - Venereal disease is as bad for men outside we the army and navy as for men in it. They don't j want to be singled out as exceptionally bad, wick | ed, or weak. They do not want to be held up as to ' especially in need of protective care. They want to be treated just like the other fellow." te te te te te te te After much labor and sweating, not to mention quibbling, the conferees cut $64,000 of the "por*-.
