Turning The Waste
of The Farm.
HE is putting the nation on a new basis of
thrift and economy. Every item of waste—on the
in and in the home—must be stopped
or converted into profit.
The waste products of the farm can be easily and suc
cessfully converted into profit—foodstuffs that the nation
needs—through poultry.
And to make poultry produce—a warm, sanitary and con
venient poultry house is essential. It means eariiev
hatches and more winter eggs.
Lumber is not high in price compared to the value of
farm products. It pays to build well. And that is why,
for siding and outside uses, we recommend
as the best of all woods.
Practical working plans, specifications and bill of
materials for this or any other type of poultry house
can be had, on request, of us—together with cur
estimate of the cost.
Doubling your poultry production pays for a poultry
house in a surprisingly short time. It puts your poultry
raising on a business basis.

Work Is Necesfary to
Electrical Demand.
Immediate Production of 300,000 Elec
trical Horse Power Is Planned
Canal to Be Built to Allow Future
Flow of Water Capable of Trebling
Present Production—New Power
Available Only for War Work.
One of the greatest water develop
ment projects of the many centering
about Niagara Falls has been launched
the Canadian side of the river. It
contemplates an immediate production
of 800,000 electrical horse power, or
equal to approximately one-half the
present total development on both
sides of the river, and it may expand
to 1,000,000 horse power.
Actual work on the new channel was
begun recently by the Ontario hydro
commission. There were 110 ceremo
nies and the launching of the work
was virtually unknown to the general
public. The channel will encircle the
city of Niagara Falls, Oat., one running
from the Wclland river, a tributary of
tlie Niagara above the cataract, to the
escarpment below Queenston heights.
The power house will be located on
the river level almost at the foot of
Brock's monument.
300,000 Horse Power Planned.
The channel is the first one planned
to get the full benefit of the difference
in level between Lakes Erie and On
tario, approximately 300 feet. The old
companies, with penstocks located
close to Hie foot of the cataract, get a
head of about 200 feet. The additional
100 feet head, it is estimated, will
make it possible to develop the 300,000
horse power with the same flow of wa
ter required to develop 100,000 horse
power at the falls.
While the u.Tits under construction
for the power house are planned to
produce only 300,000 horse power, the
canal itself will be built to allow a
future flow of water capable of treb
ling this volume.
The Ontario hydro-commission is a
provincial body, appointed by the On
tario government. It distributes power
to Ontario municipalities within a ra
dius of 200 miles of the falls at low
copt. A lar^e part of the current gen
erated on the Canadian side, formerly
exported and distributed by an Ameri
can corporation, has been cut off. Ca
nadian power for Canadian industijej
has been the nintlo of Sir Adam Reel?,
chairman of the commission, and war
conditions have brought a speedier ap
plication of the policy than had been
Treaty Limits Water Diversion.
To replace the Canadian current
thus lost, a steam generating plant has
been built here with an ultimate capa
city of 140,000 horse power. Steam
plants and water power plants fftr
down the state have been drawn upon
to keep Buffalo factories going. Part
of (he current from the new hydro
plant will be available for American
industries!, but only those engaged in
war work, Sir Adam has announced.
Under the treaty between Canada,
Circat Britain and the United States
the diversion of water on the Canadian
side is limited to 3G,000 cubic feet a
second. The limit on the American
side is 20,000 feet.
Canada already has authorized tlie
diversion of all but G,000 cubic feet of
her allotment. Under special war per
mits the American companies are also
within a few hundred feet of their
The new channel will carry off about
10,000 cubic feet of water a second.
This will necessitate some readjust
ment of the allowances to the other:
Canadian companies unless the treaty
is modified. This has lead to suggest
tions of consolidation of all the Cana'
rtian companies and the 1,000,000 horse
power development.

Mimi. Claire, Marie and the rest of
the girls in France will have to get
along without (hose bronze buttons of
a stranuvness with U. S. on them (for
why. when every one knows the name
of the country is Los Etats-Unis), and
without such other souvenirs as they
used to acquire through their dough
boy and jack tar friends. Here it is
in official language:
"Concerning French citizens consent

"Any such net is absolutely inter

prosecutions under Articles 4G0, 401 of

Cat on City Pay Roll.

the country with such a distinction.

Miss Tuxberry had long been con
sidering the idea of a companion, with
whom to spend her later days. The
groat difficulty lay in finding one of
suitable disposition, various maidens
of apparently "suitable dispositions"
having been tried, the most promising
failing to remain "suitable" under Miss
Tuxberry's exacting needs.
The death of a far-away and lialf
forgotten brother seemed the answer
to the solution. Thomas, neglected
by his fortune-favored sister, in leav
ing this world was obliged to leave his
beloved daughter. Drusllla would be
alone and penniless. Thomas, easy
going and visionary, had not prosper
ed. His sister was his last hope of
help in time of need. To her, there
fore, with an apologetic letter, he sent
his only daughter.
Drusie, he had called her tenderly
in Aunt Tuxfeerry's home began a new
and sterner order of things.
Drusilla's disposition changed not
by her aunt's fretfulness, but from
each trial emerged again sunnily, like
flowers after rain.
One morning a bulky letter arrived.
Its postmark was that of the city
where Drusilla had made her home.
The address was undoubtedly in a
man's chirography.
The blue eyes of her niece seemed
suddenly illumined by an inner light
as she reached for the envelope and
her dimples came into play, as she
perused the letter.
"It is from Jack," she murmured
happily "he and I have known each
other all our lives. He really felt
dreadfully when I came away. We—
might have married, but the war and
all made things so uncertain. Now—"
Drusilla jumped up and whirled about
in a joyous sort of dance. "He's com
ing here," she ended.
All the hard lines came back to
Miss Tuxberry's face, but being wise
in the ways of women, she said not
a word. Being unscrupulous, also,
where her own wishes were concerned,
Miss Tuxberry merely watched for,
and failed to deliver Jack's next let
Drusie's eager face grew perplexed.
"I cannot understand," she said, "why
Jack docs not write the date of his
Miss Tuxberry had learned the date
of Jack's coming.
"Well, if I were you," she advised
briskly, "I'd have more pride than to
moon about it," and that evening she
summoned her physician.
"I want to go away to rest my
nerves," she told liim. "What sani
tarium can you recommend, where pa
tients are merely healthy people hu
moring (heir imaginations? I don't care
to he shut up like sick folks."
The doctor, knowing his patient,
smiled as he scribbled an address. So
Drusilla was dragged away.
"Surely," the girl answered her trou
bled conscience, "I could not be so un
grateful as to refuse this service. If
only .Tack would write—"
Jack's second peremptory letter had
been disposed of. Miss Tuxberry
hoped secretly that hot-headed youth
would find in this apparent indiffer
ence upon the part of his sweetheart
cause sufficient for long and injured
silence. When she and Drusilla re
turned from the sanitarium she would
consider further means to prolong that
silence. For faithful and undivided
.attention to herself, the girl should
inherit her entire estate. That would
be reward for present deprivation.
Some evil fortune aided Miss Tux
berry's plan. She had barely become
established in her luxurious room la
the sanitarium, with Drusilla near by,
when a servant brought to the iTlace
evidence of a dreaded germ, and quar
antine was declared.
Aunt Tuxberry felt none of the ap
prehension of other guests.
Drusie, pale and sad-eyed, gazed
wonderingl.v down the road.
"Why, oh why did Jack not answer
her letters?"
"Absence had brought forgetful
ness," her aunt insisted.
"If Jack forgot," Drusilla felt des
perately that she could not bear her
longing heart ache.
"A telephone message at the office
from your housekeeper," a nurse in
formed Miss Tuxberry.
"Asking some tire«ome question,"
that lady surmised.
"You answer it, Drusilla."
But it was not the housekeeper's
voice which greeted Drusie's ears.
"This is Jack," came decidedly over
the wire, "and I'm not going to stand
any more of this hide-and-seek. I'm
on my way to the sanitarium, be there
In fifteen minutes look for a runabout
at the entrance."
"But—" wailed Drusie.
"No buts," answered her impatient
lover, and cut off connection. Evident
ly Jack was ignorant concerning the
quarantine law. She would not be
permitted to see him.
Across the office couch before Dru
silla's eyes was thrown the visiting
doctor's auto coat.
Near the outer door, his face bent
over a paper, was the quarantine
puard. Swiftly she slipped into the
doctor's long coat, down over her cars
came his soft felt hat. When she had
adjusted the big gauntlets, Drusie
reached with a smile for the doctor's
small bag. She would rush across the
hall in that frantically busy way of
his—and dare, escape.
The great door opened and closed.
A runabout waited near the entrance
—Miss Tuxberry's vigilance was
(Copyright, 1918, Western
They were coming back out of the
hot blast of the great battle—those
boys of a certain division now famous
throughout France and one day to be
famous throughout the world. They
were not coming back because they
wanted to, nor because they had had
enough of it they were being brought
on stretchers, wounded, gassed, shell
shocked, to an advanced dressing sta
tion. Some of them seemed just boys.
One could see them grit their teeth
to hold back the moan of pain.
"Hard luck, pal?" said a doctor in
terrogatively, as the bearers set down
a stretcher in the courtyard.
The boy shrugged his shoulders, act
ually shrugged them as well as he
could, bundled up on that stretcher,
and grinned wanly.
"Comin' fine, if I can get you fel
lers to save that foot. She's smashed
plenty. If you can't—all the same."
"We'll run you right in."
"Nix, bo, not me. I'm gettln' past
all right, notliin' but my foot. You
jest lemme be here and git busy with
them guys that's hurt. I'm on the
waitin' list."
That was one boy. He belonged to
an outfit that bears a name far and
wide for being boiled hard. Tough
birds, you hear them called, rough
talking boys with the crust outermost.
If you had seen them a month before
I or two months before when they had
not had their purifying in blood and
fire, you would not have prophesied
I that they would hold toads in suffering
to wait for one in greater suffering to
be cared for first. It was an attribute
1 that was not apparent to the casual
eye. Hard-boiled, you would have
agreed, and you might have felt a trifle
sorry for the enemy that had to en
counter them. But you would not have
stood by with tears in your eyes—not
I in your eyes, but rolling down your
I cheeks—and have muttered again and
again: "Here are men!"
Dross Burned Away.
But now they have felt the scorch
ing breath of war. Suddenly they
had been dropped, into the furnace and
I had come out with dross burned away,
Something had happened. They were
still hard-boiled. Their language was
made up of (he same words, but the
I words had -taken on a new meaning,
their very faces had taken on a new as
pect. In spite of blood and grime, and
the discoloration and burn of gas, you
could see that something was preseiat
there which had been absent before
—until you could not see ut all for the
flooding of your eyes.
"1—got mine ... No use—sport
Hard-Boiled Boys, Dropped Into the Furnace of War, Come Out

Can't do—nothin' for—me
j. Git—busy with some of them
boys—you kin—help."
That was the spirit. That was the
thing that had been burned into their
souls by the ihot breath of war. They
had forgotten themselves. Jim was
not thinking of Jim but of Mike. Mike
was not thinking of Mike, but of Jack.
Each passed it on.
The dressing station was small and
many must lie cutside until the men
who were taken in first could be evac
uated. You heard groans, but amid
the groans you heard cheery, gritty
words. "Oow, that leg.
How's Charlie makin' it? Anybody
know? I seen him git it Oow
"They just took Charlie in. He)
wasn't sayin' much."
"Say, them stretcher bearers ought
to git the Croy de Gerr, them birds
ought to. See 'em fetch me back with
them shells bustin' like it was rainin'?
And would they hurry? Not a
bit. I hollered to tliem to git a move

"Out of luck nothin'. Didn't I bay

they got me? Eh? ... Luck?"
The story goes that this division
was called upon to stop the rush of
five times its number. The story goes
farther, and says they not only
stopped the rush but caused a
movement in the other direction. It
was not an affair of hours but of days,
days of constant, bitter, hand-to-hand
fighting, with horrors added by the
jllun that no American soldier has
.ever been called upon to face. But
•they had dammed the flood had even
swept it back for a little, and they
were proud.
But their achievement on tlie field
was not the great thing that came into
view in those days. It was the spirit
that flamed up in their hearts—not
merely a spirit of courage, of daring,
of heroism against odds, bu,t a spirit
of altruism, of love for the other fel
low. Somewhere in that holocaust

to be forgotten by those who wit
nessed it.
A hurry call was sent to the distant
Y. M. C. A.
"Can't you do something for these
boys who are being brought in here?"
the officer in charge demanded.
"What can we do?"
"Something to eat and smoke. Cof
fee. A bite and a smoke do a wound
ed man more good than anything else.
Do you know, some of those boys have
been out there in 'that' for two days
with nothing to eat but hardtack?"
So theY sent its men and its trucks
it made coffee, it brought such fruit
as it could it carried chocolate bars,
"Here you are, sport," said one of
them, coming into the courtyard.
"Here's a cup of chocolate."
The boy raised himself painfully
on his elbow and reached for the cup
he motioned it away.
"I hain't hurt much—and there's a
lot of guys here that's messed bad.
You hain't got enough to go around.
Git busy."
"I've got smokes and hot chocolate
for every man. Go ahead."
"Honest? I won't be robbin' none
of them birds?"
The boy drank—and was transform
"That's livin'," he said softly.
One boy was brought in with a
broken leg. It had been an accident
and not a wound won in battle. He
had got in the way of a motor
"Jest fix me up out here what you
can," he said.
"You go to the hospital, son."
"Nix. Hospital's for those fellows
that's hurt. I just got a busted pin.
You fix me here and leave me here
When you git a chance."
Language Needs New Word.
Somewhere, some time, they had all
got this thing. It had come to
them out of the flame and crash of
battle it had been carried to them
on clouds of searing, noxious gas it
had awakened in them through suffer
ing and through the sight of suffering.
They were the same, yet they were
not the same. They were not gentle,
yet one fancied he could detect a gen
tleness in their voices. But out of
the battle and the suffering, something
better than they had ever known came
to them. There was utter ignoring of
self, and it was a thing wonderful to
"We've got to have a new word in
the language," said a captain-surgeon.
"Game won't do. These boys are some
thing more than game. I've never seen
anything like it. I don't know what
it is." Even he, inured to suffering
and to scenes of bloodshed, wiped his
eyes. "They're—they're—why, damn
it all, they're 'something!' Nobody
was ever like them!"
One boy lay Inside on a mattress
on the floor. His chest was rising
and falling as he struggled for breath.
"He's on his way," said the doctor
to a man who was acting as orderly,
nurse, assistant, anything.
The man went over and touched
the b«y's forehead.
"How about it, old man?" he said.
"Kind of—lonesome Maybe
you could sit here
The man sat down and a hand
struggled toward him. He took it
and held it in his own, and he whis
pered to the boy a moment. Maybe
it was a prayer. Whatever the words,
it was a prayer. The wounded man
lay still, his hand in the hand of the
friend who had come to him in his
last dark moment—his last glorious
Another Kind of Courage.
The courage of the battlefield seems
to be a common commodity but the
courage to bear pain without flinching
to realize the approach of death with
out crying out to reach a moment
when you know you must face life
maimed, without arm, leg, eye—and
not to curse with black rage or cry
out with despair—that is another kind
of courage. But it was there. Not
one man had it, but it seaned as if
all those wounded had it—it was not
the gameness of the bulldog. It was
something that had to do with the
soul. It was greatness, it was fine
ness, it was a thing that compelled
the watcher to uncover his head and
stand bared in its presence.
They were Americans. Perhaps It
was their birthright. More likely it
was a new thing newly born of the
day and the business of the day. What
ever it was, whenever and however
it came, it was present. This has
been written with repression, with a
striving for understatement, with a
wish to tell the truth. The thing was
there. They brought it back with
"How are you making it, sport?
Here's a cup of coffee."
"You come around to me after
you've given some to the boys over
there. They need it."
That is what was there. It has
read something new into the meaning
of the words American soldier. As
