BUSY (Jetting Their Household Effects Out uud Failed to Send in Alarm Two Fires Yesterday An ugly blaze in the attic of the Shambaugh house, corner Mill and Wayne streets, caused the fire lad dies a bit of work yesterday noon. The house is occupied by W. A. Nichols and family and Henry Boroff and family. Neither carried any in surance on their household goods and in their excitement began removing their furniture without notifying the department of the fire. The delayed alarm caused the blaze to get considerable headway and vhen the laddies arrived the entire roof was ablaze. The upper part of the building was badly burned and i ii.i .1 .11 the entire structure damaged from smoke and water. The loss will be about, seven or eight hundred dollars. The furni ture of both parties was all removed. The fire originated from a defective flue. The laddies had been back to the engine house, only a few minutes, and had just got dry hose back on the wagon when a second alarm called them to the Edmund Brandt? home, corner Livingston and Sugar streets. Children playing under an open rear porch set fire to some rubbish. No damage was done.

NOT GOOD AT SINKING THEM. While They Are -Clever at "Spotting' tha Submerged Boats, It la Only by Great Skill and Good Luck That Bomb Can Ba Dropped to Ita Mark. In some ways an aeroplaue la more effective In locating a submarine than a destroyer or a patrol boat, and It may even be able In exceptional cir cumstances to destroy the undersea vessel, says C. G. Grey, editor of the London Aeroplane. There) Is a popular Illusion, which Is not exactly a delusion, that the ob server In an aeroplane can see as for down Into the water as a submarine Is likely to dive. Up to a point this Is true, for If tho water Is clear it Is pos sible to see some twenty or thirty feet Into it from a point vertically above, and if such water is only forty or fifty feet deep a submarine is not likely to dive beyond tho visibility point It Is quite another matter, however, where the water Is a kind of leaden gray in color and where ten feet of water over the periscope Is enough to hide a submarine as effectually as If she were twenty fathoms down. Therefore It Is fairly obvious that the scouting air craft have to depend on surface vision quite as much as the patrol boats. Where the difference does come In Is In the angle of vision from which that surface view Is ob tained. For Instance, patrol boat might well miss seeing a periscope half a mile away, especially if the periscope were between the boat and the sun, so that the reflection of the sun off the water was dazzling the lookout men. The aircraft observer, on the other hand, perched up aloft, would have a far better chance. The perl scope, cutting through the water, makes a very distinct wake which spreads out on each side so that it makes a light but quite distinct "broad arrow" of foam. When the periscope Is above water the top of the conning tower is not far below, so that this also is visible unless there Is a heavy breaking sea. And probably the .bubbles from the ex hausting air can also be seen. Thus an escort of seaplanes should have a far better chance of spotting the presence of submarines than could any escort of surface ships. At the same time It is well to remember that an escort of destroyers or some similar type of armed ship Is necessary, be cause the aeroplane or airship of today Is not capable of carrying guns big enough to sink submarines with cer tainty, and the art of bomb dropping from aircraft has not become sulfl clently a science to make the certainty of the bombs reaching their mark as great as is the certainty of a shell from a four Inch gun doing so. Therefore the aircraft by them selves can only hope to keep subma rines submerged by dropping bombs at them, though they may sink one here and there by a combination of personal skill and good luck, whereas by acting as "spotters" for the highly trained gunners of destroyer flotillas they can POon(.I.ate verv materially In the ac- tual destruction of enemy submarines Where the naval air craft really do come in Is In the immense surface of sea which they can cover in a very short time and their ability to take enemy submarines by surprise while lying on the surface "airing" them ielves and charging up their batteries. A small fast scouting aeroplane does anything between eighty and a hun dred miles an hour, and at a height of 7,000 or 8,000 feet it is fairly hard to see. On land one Is generally warned of an aeroplane's arrival by the sound Of its engines, but at sea the lapping of the water and the whistling of the Wind through rigging or around super structure drowns the sound of the aero engine till It is fairly close. Conse quently a seaplane has more than a sporting chance of getting within a mile or so of a submarine before it is seen, and if it gets within that dis tance it should be able to make things very unpleasant for the submarine, even if it has not the luck to sink it outright, . Even at night in moderately fair weather, which is naturally the best for submarine operations, big seaplanes with searchlights could do much to keep submarines under water and so add to their troubles by preventing them from stopping on the surface long enough to air their interiors and to charge their storage batteries. New York World. Resistance of the Wind. Tests on a model of the naval collier Neptune made in the wind tunnel of the Washington navy yard by Naval Constructor William McEntce .show that if this vessel were steaming against a thirty mile wind at 14 knots an hour It would require about 770 horsepower to overcome the resistance of the wind. This Is about 20 per cent of the power necessary to propel her through the water. Very Formal. "Are you on very friendly terms with your neighbor in the apartments?" "Well, no.

Shell Shock and the Way It Hlta and Afflicts Ita Victima. To the medical profession modern war has brought a uew disease, known as shell shock or "shock shell," as the British war oilice olllclully calls It To understand it cause and action we must take our place In the trenches with a company on the first line. An attack is simmering and the constant preliminary honibardmeut of heavy and light artillery is on. Shells, shrapnel, high explosives are rained on them and on tho trench with its narrow communication to the sup ports iu the rear until there is a con- slant din of tremendous explosions and the air is filled with noxious gas. Time has come to seek cover and the soldier ducks his steel belmeted head into his uuderground dugout, crowds down with bis mates and waits for the storm to blow over. Hours pass, days pass, some preliminary bombardments lusting four or five days, and food, water, patience and nerves are exhausted by the awfuj dU, the noisome air and the crowded quarters with the sickening sights of nearby men disemboweled or otherwise wounded unto death. Then it Is that minds go awry. Shell shock attacks the veterans as well as the recruits. The poor lads with neu rasthenic tendencies, with poor nervous reserve or with histories of sapping excesses and habits, begin to expert ence an ever growing fear. Their limbs start to tremble, their hearing becomes affected, they cannot talk or see, and when they can be rescued In a lull they have become jibberlng or silent, trem bliug human animals, almost literally scared to death. Scientifically, the disease may be di vlded into two classes. One Is the pseudo shell shock following the course outlined in men of unstable nervous equilibrium, deprived of food and made to fear for their lives; and the second class is true shell shock occurring in meu who really sustain blows of falling sand bags and planks or are burled in the upheaval of earth following shell explosion. Unfortunately the false di vision comprises over 95 per cent of the total number reported, and they offer the poorest hope of recovery of the proper martial spirit which the sol dier should have. The true cases gen erally recover within a fortnight. They may, however, slip on then Into the pseudo class and become unfit for ac tlve military duty. Dr. Kellogg Speed hi Leslie's. THE CORK OAK TREE. There le Nothing "Juat ae Good" aa Ite Bark Product. When a man goes into a hardware store for a supply of cork for some specific purpose he generally gets what he asks for. The reason why the dealer does not endeavor to persuade him to try something else "Just as good" Is because there is nothing else he could offer. Cork is cheap, and for ages it has stood alone in Its field of usefulness. It Is tough and elastic, and its specific gravity Is only 0.24. This, added to the fact that it is impervious to water, ac counts for its use in life preservers. Tho cork oak, which grows principal ly in Spain, Portugal, Algeria and southern France, furnishes the supply. Only the outer bark of the tree is used for the commercial product. When the tree has attained a diameter of ap proximately five inches, which usually it does by the time it is twenty years old, the cork, as the first stripping of bark is called, is removed. This cork is so rough, coarse and dense that it has little commercial value. But its removal does not kill the tree. On the contrary, it seems to promote develop, mcnt The stripping Is done in July and Au gust, and great skill Is necessary in erder not to injure the tree. If it is Injured at any place the growth there ceases, and the spot remains ever after ward scarred and uncovered. Popular Science Monthly. Cornmeal Mush. It has been found after careful tests that five pounds and two ounces of corn are required to produce one pound of pork that is, a hog must cousumo more than five pounds of corn to gain a pound in weight Cornmeal mush or cornbread, it fol lows, Is vastly more economical as' a food for our tables than ham or bacon. The only practical difficulty In bene fiting by this knowledge Is that many people think that corn Is so much bet ter when it Is transmuted by the lowly hog that It is worth five times the orig inal price.

WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE THRIFT SERVICE The Ballot and the Preserving Kettles Lined Up Together. Falling In line with the offer of war service mi.do by the National Ameri can Woman KulTi'iigp Association to the President of the United States, various state suffrage associations have called their members Into practical service The first act of the president of the Nebraska State Suffrage Association, Mrs. V. K. Bnrk!ry. wiis to line up her members in suffrage thrift clubs. The state suffrage organization Is awakening Its members to the fact that Nebraska women can put up their own foodstuffs, and so free the produce of the cunning factories for exportation or for t ho army, wherever, In fact, it will be most needed. "Will you preserve for future use double your usual quantity of foodstuffs?" Is tl." question which has been added to the enrollment slips of the Nebraska suffragists. About l,r0O tons of preserved food can now, on the present basis, be re leased, Is l lie estimate made by thrift leaders. If each suffragist will double her supply, :',,fKK tons may be expected from Nebraska's suffrage thrift effort. Iowa is another state to take up thrift work.

FIT! 4 J r ,r M V ' - ,1 , R ? II FLORIDA OF RUSSIA The Historic Crimean Peninsula of the Black Sea. HORRORS OF ITS GREAT WAR, In Thle Famous Conflict Soldiera Died Like Flies From Disease and Florence Nightingale Won Her Crown of Glory an the Battlefield. "Hanging down Into the Black sea like a butcher's cleaver, with Its haudlo pointed east and the near corner of the blade joined to the mainland of Rus sia, the Crimea, where It was first planned to exile the czar when be ab dicated, is about as near to being an Island as a peninsula well can be, even though a very narrow strait Is the only water that lies between It and a second connection with the mainland. On the one side to the west lies the Perekop gulf, and to the east, shut out from the Black sea by the handle of the cleaver, la the sea of Azov." Thus the Crimea Is outlined in a bul Ictlu by the National Geographic so elety from its Washington ueudquar ters for geographic research, concern' ing this Florida of Bussia Jutting out into Europe's Inland sea. "With an urea matching that of New Hampshire, a population equal to that of New Hampshire and Vermont to gether and a climate that borrows good features from Florida and south ern California and bad ones from many places, the Crimea is one of the most fascinating bits of territory be tween Portugal and Cochin China. Its nonulace a congress of races, its in dustries ranging from the growing of subtropical fruits and the housing of Russia's elite as they flee from the cold, to the herding of sheep and the growing of grain, It Is a place of many sided activities. "As the men of wealth of America have their winter homes in Florida and those of western Europe have theirs along the Riviera, the people of post tion In Russia have their country seats In the Crimea. And beautiful places they are, "for In Russia the rich are very rich. The height of the social sea son Is from the middle of August to the 1st of November. "The peninsula Is occupied by 855,000 people, according to the last census, mostly Turkish speaking Tartars, with a scattering of Russians, Greeks, Ger mans and Jews. Cleanliness and mo rality are said to be proverbial traits of the Crimean Tartars, who have been undergoing the Influences of Russlflca- tion for several generations. They have taken up vine culture, fruit growing and kindred occupations with a zeal seldom equaled east of the Aegean. "Of course most Interesting of all things Crimean are Its history, Its for tress and Its imperial palace. In the second century B. C. the Scythians founded a kingdom there, and the land passed through many changes, now un der one sovereignty, and now under an other, finally passing to the Tartars, who In turu were brought under the rule of the Turks. In 1783 Russia forced the last khan to abdicate and made the Crimea a part of one of her provinces. The Crim Tartars, who give the peninsula its name by reason of their substantial admixture of Greek and other bloods, have lost most of the Mongolian features, being slender in build, possessing aquiline noses, eyes that have lost the oriental slant and countenances not quite so inscrutable as the eastern type. "In the Crimean war, fought by Eng land, France and Turkey against Rus sia, the final test of strength came at Sebastopol. Here the factors of un limited resources operated in the allies' favor. Through their command of the sea they could secure everything need ed, while the Russians could bring up their supplies only across the barren steppes, whose highways were marked at every step by the dead and the dy- tag, both man and beast. "The novels of Tolstoy give a graphic picture of the Crimean war from the Russian viewpoint, depleting the mis eries of the march, the anguish of the life In the casemates and the nerve destroying ordeal of manning the lines under sbellflre, there to await the night attack that might or might not come. It was in this war that Florence Night ingale rendered services as a nurse that made her name a synonym of ministering angel on the world's bat tlefields. Then men knew nothing of the cause of cholera and such diseases, and the soldiers died like files. It is estimated that 50,000 British soldiers He burled In the cemetery outside of Sebastopol. "The imperial large palace, to which the dethroned monarch was to retire, Is situated at Llvadla, surrounded by a magnificent park. It Is of recent construction and was completed In 1910. Hard by is the simply construct ed small palace, In an upper room of which Alexander III. died. In no oth er country in the world was the reign' ing ruler possessed of so many lands or such extensive properties as was the case in Russia." Have the Habit.

Importance of Long and Thorough Mae- tication of Food. "The idea prevails in most minds," says a prominent physician, "that the purpose of chewing food thoroughly is to break it up into small particles, with the main idea in mind that small par ticles are easily digestible, while large particles are impossible or difficult to digest That idea is Incorrect. "It has been shown in the laboratory that a cube of meat which measures an Inch will digest almost as quickly as one which measures one-fourth of an inch. A dog will swallow a piece of meat three inches or four Inches long, and almost as thick, without chewing it at all. Yet a dog seldom has indi gestion, except when some food fad dist or fanatic tries to make the brute less brutal by turning a naturally car nivorous canine into a vegetarian an! mal. "The point Is that thorough mastica tion makes digestion more easy not because the food Is broken up Into finer particles, but because food held In the mouth a great length of time and more carefully masticated has usually mixed with it a greater amount of saliva and Its ptyalin ferment for the digestion of starchy elements. To hold food In the mouth until it is thoroughly masticated requires a certain amount of attention, which, by the way, is the all important thing in the digestion of foods. This attention people do not always give. Saliva does not flow well when your mind is not on your eating." Cincin nati Commercial Tribune. Caribou of Alaska. The chief food of the caribou of Alaska Is reindeer moss, of a greenish white color, which Is scattered over the bills and mountains of Alaska. Their favorite feeding grounds are on the treeless and semltreeless parts of the territory, Including the tundras along the coast of the Arctic ocean, and down to the Pacific side of the Alaska peninsula. They scatter widely In summer and collect In herds in tho fall. Each herd has its leader, and it is said that if the leader is killed the rest of the herd becomes panic stricken and stampedes back and forth until another animal takes the lead. Plenty of Cause.
