BLOCKim STARKVILLE, MISS. 7 “ to grow into u worUKwido observ ance of the day in years to come. An ironical turn of the wheel of fortune gives Belgium a slice of the Gorman possessions in Hast Africa that is three times as large as Beligum itself. The region, which has been occupied by Belgm troops under Gen. Tombeur, offers a most advantageous outlet for the commerce of Belgian Congo. Ot course the new possessions do not go fur to offset what Belgium has suffered at home, but they are something on the other side of Lire ledger. When anyone repents that worn, out gibe that the mighty dollar is the American god, we can at least console ourselves with the know! edge that not all .who judge us from the outside accept it as deserved. The Marquis Crewe,' for many years the loader of the House of Lords, said wheu the Peers com memorated the entry of this coun try into the war.

One be cmues the Huron de Kit lb and the other the Baron vou .Steuben. Huron de Kalb, it German officer who had fought for France, came to this country with Lafayette. Ho was wounded many times and died a prisoner of war. liarou vou Steuben, a former aid of Frederick the Great, was one of Washington’s most trusted officers, and was known as “thedrillmaster of the Revolution.” Corn-meal bread, the wholesome food of early days when the settlor threw a bag of corn across his saddle and rode to the nearest gristmill, is likely during the coming year to become well known to millions who have hitherto boon little familiar /with it, Although we have culled corn the king of our crops, it has been relatively little used for food iu this country except iu the South, The Indians knew its virtues, the Mexicans know them, and among the Europeans so do the Italians, lint satisfies show that recently the ordinary American has eaten yearly throe-hundred pounds of wheat Hour to fifty pounds of coin meal and other corn Iproducts.— Vouth Campuniou Probably Mr. Edison is pro* fitubly engaged on war inveutionu, but it would be Hue if ho could invent a cow that lived on skimmed milk.
