Shortage Has Shown Us the Wonders
ful and Unique Qualities Contained
in the Grain, ...
As absence makes the lieur't grow
fonder, .so (loos scarcity of wheat In­
vite attention to Its wonderful and
anlque qualities ns food. We have been
eating wheat products all these years
as a matter of course, and it. never oc­
curred to us that we might ever be
called on to go without thorn. Now
thut 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
glutea—what the baker refers to as
the "hinder." He must have a certain
proportion of wheat flcrtir to furnish
the binder, or his oatmeal bread or Ids
rice jmstry crumbles. The substitutes
have the same nourislanent as the
wheat. Rut they lack the quality of
the wheat Hour 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 then 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.
Small Vessel Was the First to Cross
the Atlantic 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 1S-17. 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 Sinus and her master met with a
tragic end.
The Sirius made the voyage from
Cork in 10 days, 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
ocean in 15 days. The Sirius had a
passenger list of seven on its initial
voynge, the youngest of whom was
Vincent E. Itansome, 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 Sirius was a scJionner-rigged
ship and was ITS feet over all, with

London's Tea Houses.
The death of Sir Joseph Lyons re
minds us what a modern Institution
the teashop is. You need not be very
old to remember the time when prac
tically the only places where a cup of
tea could be obtained in London were
the old fashioned coffee houses, with
their boxed-in compartments and nar
row, uncomfortable seats.
The customers were exclusively mc-n,
and if a woman required light refresh
ment she had to seaich for a confoc
tloner's shop, where tea and coffee
were sometimes grudgingly served, at
famine prices, at little round marble
tables tucked away in dark corners.—
London Chronicle.
Used Stamps Valueless.
The Red Cross wishes to make it
known, as widely as possible, that the
report that used postage stamps have
any value through the extraction of
the dyes contained in them is abso­
lutely false. This false report has al­
ready resulted in the receipt by the
post office department of many stamps
collected by misguided patriots who
sought thus to do something to help
win the war.—The Outlook.
Boy's Remark Got Results.
Bob had been downtown with his

Old Gentleman Vastly More Annoyed
at Constable Than He Was at Hun
Air Raiders.
"He wasn't half angry," said a con­
stable to me, smiling reminiscently as
he cast his eye over what remained—
mostly top story only—of an old-fash
ioned house which had suffered in a
recent air raid. "You should have
heard his language!"
"Curious thing," I said, "the top floor
doesn't appear to be touched."
"Yes, that's where he was," said the
constable. "Of course, we thought he
was a casualty. AVe cleared away the
rubbish, and somehow or other got up
to his rooms with an ambulance and
the doctor. The door was closed, so we
started prying it open. That's when
the fun started.
"The door was flung open, and there
stood the old gentleman with a big
book in his hands, his 'specs' on, and
in a proper temper. I just caught a
glimpse of a cosy armchair drawn up
down with his book beside the Are,
muttering most awful. It gave me
the biggest shock of the raid."—Lon

tors is now actually being used on the
farm that the phrase "Electricity on
the Farm" does not constitute an idle
dream any longer, remarks the Gen­
eral Electric Review. Although 160,
000 horse power of this is used for irri
gation and reclamation purposes (a pe
cnliarity of semiarld sections), the
remainder, or 40,000 horse power, is
actually being used for miscellaneous
farm purposes, such as driving the
cream separator, butter churn, and so
on. The only thing that we are not
doing with electricity on any scale is
plowing and cultivating, «nd this now

"I should think I haven't! I should

Commends Sailor's Bravery.
For gallantry in rescuing from
drowning a lad eight years of age Sec­
retary Daniels has commended Arthur
Otto Radcliffe, a seaman of the United
States navy. Alongside of the United
States steamship Wnrlsworth, on which
the sailor was stationed, lay a tug. A
.small boy played about the deck with
no thought of danger. Suddenly he
fell overboard. Before the warning
caine the child had floated seventy-five
yards or more from the tug and ship.
Then Radcliffe came into action. .Tump­
ing into the wi.ler, he swam to the boy
and brought him to safely. Radcliffe
enlisted in the navy in 1015, at Des
Moines, Iowa.
"Germ-Proof" Money.
To a bank in Spokane, Wash., be­
longs the distinction of circulating the
first antiseptic germ-proof national
bank notes. The United States treas­
ury is still experimenting with devices
to laundry dirty bank notes to bright
crisp ones, but the Spokane bunk has
the first sanitary money on record.
Fifty thousand dollars in bills, put out
by the bank, were signod with an ink
said to consist largely of carbolic acid.
The result is the bills are saturated
with an agency which means death to
the most vigorous germ who'd live
there. 4

French 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 of age or more, whose
usefulness 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 Poilus. Early
In 1017 the doubtful privilege of an
honorable discharge was granted to
carefree fathers of six or more chil­
dren. The real problem before the
chamber of deputies is whether to take
up the question of the old classes In a
large spirit or whether to continue to
make slight concessions to the demands
of their constituents.

building recently hired a colored man,
George, to work about the building.
George had always worked as a "house

greater part of three hours.
The custodian was naturally an­
noyed. "Where in thunder have you
been?" he inquired the minute he set
eyes on the erring George. "Me?
Why, I'se been home takin' a nap,"
George answered, in a surprised tone.
"I always takes a nap In the middle

clared, "you don't do that any more.

of it. A most appreciative grin spread
over his face.

have to excuse me this time, boss.

how important I is around here."
