The eclipse will be to j tal at that point at 6:38 p. m., pres i»,„ m c | ock time, and the length of tality will be about 65 seconds. If our western sky be clear, we will see, beginning about 5:30 p. m., all, the phases of a partial eclipse. The vis ' b5e P ar t of the sun will grow pro Kressively less until at 6:38 p. m., when the shadow is nearest us, a portion only of the disk will be visible > more than 30 per cent of the sun bein £ covered by the moon. The visible Portion will be a slender crescent, to the south of the moon; or as we look at it, the left hand edge of the sun will remain visible. Al tbou P b so great a part of the sun's , surface will be covered, yet its lighti is so intense we will see none of the really interesting phenomena of an eclipse, the corona, prominences, and other features being relatively so faint as to be observable only by those actually within the shadow track.

SOY BEANS A VALUABLE FOOD j __ j SOY BEANS have been used and liked in the United States for many j years in those regions w'here they j have been .grown, and more recently j have been used by canners to some ; extent for general trade.- The war , situation, with its need for finding ! new foods and new uses for old foods, has fixed attention on this food crop j to such an extent that the name soy ; bean has now become fairly familiar. j The soy bean, which is well known in the Orient as a valuable food sta to-!pie, is unlike common legumes, in j that it contains much oil and no. ] starch. Oil is obtained by pressing it out of the beans. This leaves a 1 P ress «ike, which still contains some ; and a, l the rest of the food mate r * a5 originally present in the beans, Tb « cake is readily ground into flour, "hich is of high food \alue and can be used m many ways in cooking, has been 0,1 th e market to some extent for a long time and used for L special purposes. It is now becom > n K a common foodstuff in some lo caiities, one which is well worth , knowing and using. Experiments with the soy-bean flour in the experiment kitchen of the office of Home Economies, Uni ted States Department of Agricul ture, show that palatable dishes can be made by using it as one of the in gredients. Tested recipes using soy bean flour are given in Secretary's Circular 113 just issued by the de „ , . _ partment.

In the cities, particularly New Or leans where coal is extensively used, not more than 2V per cent of the orders for the winter'- supply of coal have been placed so far. In the country, the Fuel Administra tion's Local Committees report little activity towards laying aside a great wood fuel reserve during the sum mer. "People ir the cities have been dragging along for more than two months while the Fuel Administra tion has been making every effort to arouse them to the necessity of ear j,. [ JU yj nj , 0 f coal and storage of wood for use this winter," said Fuel Administrator O'Kelley. "Through the schools, churches, window dis plays, circular letters, posters, j °f publicity, the message of 'Order Your Coal \W hn* ! stamps and every other known means driven 1 ------- I* is P ure ly up to the peo ple themselves. If they do not or i home. ( der their coal now, there is no assur ance that they will have a. bit this I winter. In the country if the offi j cials of towns and villages do not j heed the 'Cut A Cord Now' slogan and lay aside a great wood fuel re i serve, there can be no complaint ! from them this winter when coal is , denied their communities. More j and more the acute fuel situation is ( becoming apparent. A great ser I vice can be rendered by every house holder and every farmer if they will ! order coal now, or get in their wood ; supply. I "Louisiana is more fortunate than : other states in the fuel problem. We I get nearly all of our coal from the Alabama mines but they are now rushed with orders. If household ers place their orders now, delivery ! will not be delayed, whereas, if they j delay placing orders, there is no as surance they will get any coal. In j the rural communities Louisiana is rich in firewood. There are millions I of cords of wood available for fuel. The Fuel Administration at Wash ington has warned us that coal is go ing to be denied communities where wood is available this winter and it behooves everyone in towns and vil lages to act accordingly. "During the warm weather Louis ianians are liable to forget the fuel less days of last winter. The situa tion will be very much worse this winter unless they heed the Govern ment's appeal to their own interest. They should order coal now or make preparations to get in their wood supply. For the sake of the Gov ernment in its war work they should al-o heed the warnings. Every ton of coal put in this summer means that mueh of a burden from the rail roads djiring the winter, when 'they will be sorely needed for transporta tior\of eoal for American ships and for handling tremendous quantities of supplies for our great armies 'Ov- • er there.' At the same time, mimés must produce 85,000,000 more tons of coal for war industries, which will require a tremendous railroad movement this fall and winter. On ly by working the mines to capacity during fne summer and filling the householder's bins' mow, can the Fu el Administration' hope to avert fuel crisis which would paralyze e- ery war industry, the railroads an i the armies.
