As absence makes the heart grow fonder, so does scarcity of wheat In vite attention to its wonderful and unlque qualities as food. We have been eating wheat products all these years as a matter of ourse, and it never oe curred to us that we might ever be called on to go without them. Now that It is necessary to use wheat sub stitutes, we have discovered that use ful as they are there is nothing that really takes the place of wheat flour. The magic of the wheat lies In Its gluten-what the baker refers to as the "binder." He must have a certain proportipn of wheat flour to furnish the binder, or his oatmeal bread or his rice pastry crumbles. The substitutes have the same nourishment as the wheat. But they lack the quality of the wheat flour crust. There is noth ing in them to Imprison the gases lib erated by yeast, and so they refuse to rise like wheat dough. Bread made of the substitutes is heavy and soggy un less there is enough wheat dough mixed In to give it life. Without wheat we go without bread, without cake, without pie, with out strawberry shortcake. No affec tion for corn pone can make it a sub stitute for all these stand-bys of the table. If it is necessary for the sake of the war, we shall cheerfully go without. Any deprivation we may feel is as nothing to what our associates In arms already have undergone. But we shall look forward to the happy days when there will be an abundance of wheat once more.-Kansas City Star. RECORD BELONGS TO SIRIUS Small Vessel Was the First to Crose the Atlantle Wholly Under Its Own Steam. This spring marks the eightieth an niversary of an important event In modern history-the voyage from Cork to New York of the Sirius, the first vessel to cross the Atlantic wholly un der its own steam. All that remains of that stanch little craft Is a number of brass paper-weights made from the metal work after It was wrecked In Ballycotton bay In 1847. Captain Rob erts, commander of the 412-ton Sirius on its maiden trip, was later trans ferred to the President, which went down with all on board. Thus both the 81rius and her master met with a tragie end. The Sirius made the voyage from Cork in 19 dabs, reaching New York only a few hours before the Great Western, another steamship which had sailed from Bristol The latter made the best time, crossing the ocea in 15 days. The Sirius had a passenger list of seven on its initial voyage, the youngest of whom was Vincent E. Ransome, then four years old, who was reported living a few years ago In Wiltshire, England, where he was long the rector of a parish church. The 81irius was a schooner-rigged ship and was 178 feet over all, with a beam of 25 feet and a depth of 18 feet. Eleltr'ety on the Farm. It is apparent from the fact that 200,000 iorse power in electric mo tors Is ndw actually belag used on the farm that the phrase "Electriety on the Farm" does not constitute an Idle dream any longer, remarks the Gen eral Electric Review. Although 100, 000 horse power of this Is used for Irri gation and reclamntton purposes (a pe cullarity of semiarid sections), the remainder, or 40,000 horse power, is actually being eused for miscellaneous farm purposes, such as driving the cream separator, batter churn, and so ona. The only thing that we are not doing with electricity on any seale is plowing and cultivating, and this now bids fair to be a commerial reality In the very near future.--celntlfe Amer lean.

FAD WELCOMED BY ARTISTS Painted Designs on Lingerie Give Op. portunity for U1lmlted Display of Originality. Now that the hard-hearted hosiery manufacturers have decided to reduce their manufacturing costs by cutting out the fancy colors and startling de signs of the ladles' lines and limiting the output to plain somber shades that cannot be heard coming, that portion of femininity that demands novelties in dress that fairly scream will have to fall back on the new fad in underwear. Oil paintings, done to suit the indl vidual taste, on the lingerie, each piece to follow the same design and make up the set, and a mosquito net overdress will put a spiderweb stocking in the shade when It comes to startling scenic effects. Imagine a set with a lifelike repre sentation of the execution of Marle Antoinette on the back of the corset cover and a panoramle sketch of the taking of the Bastile running around the bottom of the underskirt, with other sidelights of the French Revolu tion sandwiched in where opportunity presents. Possibilities? Why A palr of silk ones never began to offer the possi bilities for effective display of the artistic temperament that this new fad does.

Frnenh Labor Shortage. The lack of labor has become more acute In almost all the vital industries of France. There are many soldiers of the old classes in the French army, men 40 years et age or more, whose ausefulness at the front is a question open to debate. Agitation has been going on since the time when American participation in the war made the de mand for men less acute at the battle front to relieve the old Polluas. Early in 1917 the doubtful privilege of an honorable dlscharge was granted to carefree fathers of ax or more chil dren. The real problem before the chamber of deputies is whether to take up the questioen of the old classes in a large spirit or whether to continue to make slight concessions to the demands of their constituents.
