This tale is sur prisingly widespread. Judging by the nunmber of aixitiI(s iletter . cl('n.lring it that nlle to the- goverllllllnment ltlart ments., the fedcr il fowd admlnlstration and the variou newspap;ll,r burenus in Washington. Whether the story was started, as most people here believe. deliberately to h:amper the coming campaign and render it less effective. or whether it simply arises from an ut ter misconception of the nature of the food and Its purposes. Is not impor tant What Is important Is that the story is not true. The government is not going to seize any home-canned foods. A story related to this last is a re port that the government is contem plating a war tax on home-canned frults and vegetables. Careful Inves tigation here has failed to show the slightest basis for this report. Perhaps the most :nnoying report that has been making its unpatriotic rounds Is the report that fruits and vegetables canned by what is known as the "one-period. cold-pack method" are liable to be unsafe as food. For those who have canned foods of this sort on their pantry shelves the fol lowing absolutely authoritative state ment is offered by way of reassurance: "The cold-pack method processes have been used for five years and not a sin gle death or serious illness has result ed from the consumption of food saved according to its direction." Of course a certain amount of com mon sense is needed In the use of conned foods, Just as It is needed In crossing the street or getting off a rail way train. Fruits or vegetables which show any signs of decay should not be canned. Canned fruits or vegetables whose looks or taste, or odor when the can is opened, might indicate that they are spoiled. are perhaps best thro*n away by the Inexperienced canner: although experienced housewives often make use of canned fruits that show mold, for example, by "boiling them over" before putting them on the ta ble. This last process suggests the name of "vacillus botulinus"-n germ in a fair way to gain some small reputa tion. In a recent number of a medical journal there appeared an article on "botulism," a disease which may be contracted by eating spoiled canned traits or vegetables. It should be clearly understood that sage of greeting and good cheer to the Sunday school clam during its annual harvest festival In this city. In an effort to save tolls and prevent congestion on the already heavily bur dened cable, Mason conceived the idea of abbreviating a Bible text. At Seward. Alaska, Mason filed this message to Gantz, In Denver: "Cfngratulatlons. Colosians. 2:S". "What's the code'" asked an om cer in charge at the cable station. "It's a Bible excerpt," confded Ma son. "Maybe," retorted the officer sarcas tically, and ordered Mason detained as a suspicious person until the "ode" message could be Investigated. After several days' search a misslon ary with a Bible was found and apolo gies from the government offered were profuse when the "code" message was translated thus: "Congratulations. For though I he absent in the lees, yet I am with you in the spirit, joylng and beholding your order and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ."

And It is not an' unusual occurrence to make a call at Mr. Armstronta home and while you are walting in the parlor to hear the deep hass voice of the old (lvil war veteran nlglag his "Purl two, drop one," as he turns out wrlstlets for some Sammy, Tommy or pollu in record time.

The chances for contracting It by eating canned goods, say the ex perts. are rather less than the chances of dying from lockjaw every time you scratch your finger. The long-and-short of this whole matter of canned food is that there is no more danger from eating it this year than there was in any other year. If you want to take extra precautions. recook canned foods a little before using them. Remember, too, that home-canning is a great help in win ning the war, and get behind next year's canning campaign. WAR ISOLATES FALKLANDS England Buys Entire Wool Product The Government Puts Bounty on Rats. Port Stanley. Falkland Islands. The war has completely isolated the Fnllk!nnd Islands from the rest of the world as fa;r as commercial Intercourse is concerned. In spite of the fact that the Islands are the nav:l base of the British fleet for the South Atlantic and Soutl Pacific. Since March 10 of this year not a single ship has stopped at the Falk lands on its journey to England and correspondence for Buenos Aires and Montevideo has been sent by way of Punta Arenas. while passengers for Buenos Aires or Montevideo have had to go around Valparaiso on the Pacific liners and then cross the Andes by train to get to their destination. The British government has bought up all the wool of the Falklands, giv ing the owners 55 per cent above pre war prices. Some of this wool sold as high as 6.2 cents a pound. The island has become so overrun with rats that the government has of fered an English penny a head for all those killed.

They would have nodded their he:ud ':adly together and have said : "hat a pity that a young ,woiaaI of .lanes .iosltion Iland family should he r(teduced to taking in boarders." Ilut, he'in:g an IUp-to-date young womaniu of the twen tieth century, June preferred to look Upon her venture with deep interest. put her boarding house on a Iusiness basis, kept her books with accuracy and was regarded as one of the busi ness women who had won out in the neighborhood where she lived. "The Dawson House," as Jane chose to call her establisthment, had a definite number of resident boarders and an indefinite number of "meal ers," as Jane's housekeeper called them. In the latter class was Doctor Bradford, who was known to the regu lar Dawson House clientele simply as a promising young doctor who, hav ing spent the last two or three years at the front, had now taken an apart ment somewhere in a nearby neighbor hood with the Intention of building up a practice. Doctor Bradford, it was whispered. was very much attracted to Jane. That was not so very remarkable for Jane, in spite of-or was it partly because of?-her businesslike mamner and trim, severely made blue serge frocks was a decidedly attractive bit of fem Ininity. The remark:able thing about it was that Jane showed that she was attracted to the doctor. At hust it had been noticed by the observing ones of Dawson House that the doc tor not infrequent!y lingared after dinner to join in a hand of bridge with Jane and some favored married couple. For it was, indeed, consid ered a favor to be Invited to spend an evening in Jane's hospitable sitting room where crackling logs on the hearth and warm-shaded lamps and. most of all, Jane's Indescribable smile -which always was at its best in her own private sanctum--cast a spell of cheer that was warmer than the hospitality of any other part of the house. Sometimes, though, this the observ ing ones did not know, Jane and the doctor spent a leisure hour or so to gether in bracing country walks; but apparently-apparently surely to Jane -the doctor merely sought Jane's friendship in her companionship. On more than one occasion of late. how ever, his manner verged on something warmer than friendship, but always he stopped himself abruptly. How ever, there is always a last time when a man is able to stifle his desire to come to an understanding with the woman to whom he is attracted, and this last time came one evening when Jane and he were bending over a game of cribbage in Jane's sitting room. Impulsively the doctor clapped his hands over cards and pegs and board juast as Jane was about to peg out to the finish. "Jane," he said. "I've got to tell yon. You know my mind is not on the game. Fm thinking only of you and I have been for weeks. Jane, I'dl try and make you love me enough to be my wife if I thought it could ever work out-but-" Jane's hands that had suddenly turned cold were, with an effort at composure, trying to straighten out the pack of cards. "But what?' she said after a mo ment's silence, and then, as the doctor seemed to be unable to make an ex planation she went on with a dellb erateness that was characteristic of Jane: "Do you mnean that there is some reason why you couldn't ask me to be your wife' "There is a reason why you might not wish to accept me." he said. Jane looked across the table, her frank eyes meeting his. "Is It something that happened when you were in France?" The doctor nodded in the affirma five. "I didn't think much about it till I lot to this country. Why, Jane, even my mother told me I must have been Insane to do it-and it is because of it that she didn't want me to set tle down at home. That's why I came here and took the apartment." "I am sorry," was all Jane answerend and perhaps the doctor was disap pointed that Jane did not force a ful ler confession from him. Jane spent what seemed to her boarders a foolish proportion of ber earnings on the furnishings of her lit tie sitting room. New pictures and books and objects of ornamentation that tempted her soon found their place in the room, though she would have hesitated some time before buy ing a new hat or gown. The doctor was always lnterestd in her purchases, however, and had a keen eye to detect any new book, or pleture or art ob ject. For the weeks that followed his attempt at confession Jane had been none the less cordial than before, but whenever their conversation ap proached a point where the confessimon might have been completed Jane ab ruptly changed the subject. Late one afternood Jane foaund the doctor walting for her In her sitting room when she returned from a lonely walk. A smile of keen pleasure was oa his face as he greeted her: "I've feIad your newest purchase," he ea Jane beat down to a life-sired Japa ae del that agatted patiently on a yullw allk cashion, ILts alated black eyes Leettag oat appealngly at her as It stretdhed two browa, phlump arms to her.

Make a sature of a tablespoonful of flour. one, cupful of the water in which the hearts Were parboiled, tomato, onion chopped, cel ery chopped, and the bay leaf. Cook ten minutes; season to taste and strain over the prepared hearts. Place in a brisk oven to brown. Serve hot or cold cut in thin slices. Tapioca may be molded and served sprinkled with minced raisins and a few nuts, making a pretty dish and adding variety. Serve with top milk and cream. Currant jelly cut in cubes added to two tnhlesponmfuls of chopped mint, and the grated peel of a fourth of an orange adds zest to lamb or venison, as we are not eating lamb this year. Boiled Rice With Fig Sauce.-Cook rice as usual except it is coked in a double boiler and skim milk is used to cook it in instead of water. This m makes a more nutritious dish alld espe cially good for children. A hard snuoe may be used If preferred to the fig sauce, yet this is unusual and very nice. Stew the figs, depending upon the size of the family to be served; add lemon Juice and a little of the grated rind with a bit of butter added. Serve hot. Kidneys en Casserole.-Put three tablespoonfuls of sweet fat into a cas serole after frying in it one small diced onion, one carrot, one slice of turnip. a diced stalk of celery and a bunch of sweet herbs. Add nine sheep's kidneys cut in halves and cook for four min utes. Add a cupful of water, two ta blespoonfuls of lemon Juice, three tea spoonfuls of worcestershire sauce, a few button onions and mushrooms and seasoning of salt and pepper, paprika and grated nutmeg with a clove of gar lic. Cover the casserole and cook ei ther on top of the range or in the oven for two hours. Serve hot from the casserole. Go to it! Even an electric button won't accomplish anything unless it is pushed. When men and women have their ideals and work in common, the world will be helped along with some thing like electric speed. SIMPLE DESSERTS. To omit desserts entirely is rather too much of a strain on our loyalty, for a pleasant meal aids di gestion, and if we would keep well to be able to do our work in the world. our food must be at tractive as well as whole some. The children would be disappointed to be de prived of their dessert, and as this is the time when a bit of candy which has been denied between meals may safely be given, or any other sweet which we are teaching them to eat more sparingly of. Butter Scotch Mold.-Cook together one cupful of brown sugar and two ta blespoonfuls of shortening, using care not to allow it to burn. Pour this Into three cupfuls of scalding milk and cook until the butter scotch is melted, then pour It over two tablespoonfuls of gelatine soaked in one-fourth of a cuptfl of milk. Stir until disaolved and begin to stiffen, then add a cup ful of boiling ricee. Mix well and pour Into a mold. Other attractive ways of serving rice for those who object to the old-fash loned rice puddings, may be made by lining a mold with sliced trait and packing It with rice, pressing It down untl firm. Serve with either cream or fruit sauces. Prune Dumpiinge.-Take a cuptol of flour sifted with a teaspoonaful of baklng powder and a quarter of a tea spoonful of salt, mix with good rich milk to make a drop batter. Grease small cups, drop In a little batter, then add a spoonful of stewed prunes with some of the jauice, add an other spoonful of the batter and put the cups Into a pan with boling wa ter, enough to steam them Wrlithout boilling into the cups. Steam well covered for 15 mlnutes. Serve with prune Juice and cream. A baking pow tier biscnuit dough may be made, rolled out and covered with chopped stewed prunes, a little splee if liked, and a few chopped nuts. Roll up, cut in small rolls, place In a baking pan to bake. Serve hot with cream or trait juice. Banana FluW~-Use the red bananas for this dish.
