Little Known Plant Menace to
Men and Domestic Animals.
Uncl Sam's Specialists Issue Warn.
Ing Agalnit Poisonous Roots Not
Generally Recognized.
Many deaths, both of huHDin beings
and domestic animals, are caused every
year by cloutu, or water hemlock, a
poisonous plant. It Is the nioHt vio
lently poisonous of temperate region
lunts, yet it Is not generally recog
nized. Learn to know It and look out
for It Is a warning Issued by special
ists of Uncle Sam's department of
agriculture who have published a cir
cular which describes this plant and
gives remedies, though cases among
domestic animals must be considered
ma practically hopeless so fur as treat
ment Is concerned.
Cicuta Is widely distributed. Unfor
tunately, It resembles a number of
harmless plants and is not easily
recognizable. It belongs to the same
family as carrots and parsnips. It has
a number of popular names, of which
the most common Is "cowbane," or
"water hemlock." In the mountain re
gions of the West It is frequently
called "parsnip" or "wild parsnip."
Other names, less common, are "snake
root," "snakewood," "beaver poison,"
"muskrat weed." "spotted hemlock,"
and "spotted parsley."
The plant grows in wet places and Is
especially common In some parts of
the West along irrigating ditches. It
has a thickened rootstock with roots
which sometimes take the form of a
group of tubers. The cicuta Is most
readily distinguished from plants of
similar appearance growing under the
same conditions by the transverse
chambers In the rootstock. These can
be seen by making a longitudinal sec
tion. Only the root of cicuta Is poisonous.
Cases of poisoning are more frequent
In the spring, partly because the roots
are more likely to be noticed at that
time and partly because they appear
to be more poisonous then than later
In the season.
In cases of the poisoning of human
beings the recognized treatment is to
give an efficient emetic, followed by a
cathartic. Some form of opium may
be given to control the convulsions
when they are violent. If free vomit
ing is promptly produced, the patient
is likely to recover.
So far as live stock Is concerned,
about all that can be done must be in
the way of prevention. If the land is
plowed where the plant grows, enre
should be taken that no roots are left
where stock can get at them. Where
the plants grow in great abundance, as
they frequently do along irrigating
ditches. It Is desirable to dig them
out. When this is done the roots
should not be left on the surface, but
should be destroyed. It Is seldom thnt
stock are poisoned when grazing, un
less they graze along ditches, where
the plants sometimes grow almost in
the water with very little soil and can
easily be pulled up.
Perhaps there Is no way to prevent
some cases of poisoning of children, it
Is declared. Something might be ac
complished, however, if parents and
teachers would attempt to make clear
to children the danger of eating
strange roots.
New Branch of the Department of
Agriculture Is Cre
ated. Another forward step in Uncle
Sam's campaign to conserve the na
tion's food as a war measure Is the
creation of a new branch of the de
partment of agriculture which will be
devoted exclusively to control of In
sects infesting stored food products.

bureau of entomology heads the new

American Standard 8ald to Be an Ev
olution and Combination of De
sign Long Antedating the Rev
olutlonary Period.
The prlnclpnl colors In the flags of
all nations today are red, white and
blue In diverse combinations. Here
and there green is shown, but red.
white and blue are the colors of nine
teen out of twenty-five national flags
and are the colors of practically all
the flags of the nations of Europe.
The significance of national colors
goes back to the days of heraldry and
ninny of the devices displayed on flags
nre either heraldic designs or have
been derived from such designs. Red
stands for courage and military forti
tude, blue symbolizes loyalty and
truth and white stands for pence and
sincerity. In the Itallnn, Irish, Bra
zilian and Mexican flags green Is one
of the colors, and In heraldry this col
or signified hope ond Joy. Black,
which appears In the German flag la
combination with red and white,
stands for constancy.
Standard of Minute Men.
A historian has written that the
farmers in the battle of Lexington
carried the "cornet" or standard of
the Three County troop. That banner
was devised for a troop of cavalry
raised In the counties of Essex, Suf
folk and Middlesex, Massachusetts, In
1059. The office of color bearer of this
troop became an inheritance in the
rage family of the Bay colony. The
flng was carried in King Philip's war
In 1070. When the Minute Men Were
organized, Nathaniel Tage, III t Bed
ford, Mass., took the old flag out for
use at drill. When the midnight alarm
was sent out Captain Page snatched
up the old flag and carried It to Con
cord, where "It waved above the smoke
of that battle."
This flag Is preserved In the public
library at Bedford, Mass. .It Is of mn
roon or crimson damask silk, and on
It Is an outstretched arm with an up
lifted sword In the hand. The arm,
band and sword are worked In silver.
On the flag are three circular figures,
which It Is thought were put there to
represent ennnnn balls. The words
"Vince et Morlture" (Conquer or Die)
are on a gold scroll.
The design nf the American flag
may be snld to he an evolution and
combination of colors and dpslgns long
antedating the American Revolution.
The flags thnt were carried by mili
tary organizations In the colonies be
fore the outbreak of the Revolution
were not British flags, but organiza
tion flags.
Inspired by Union Jack.
The British ensign or Union Jack
was the Inspiration of the American
flag. The Union Jack Is a combina
tion of the English red cross of St.
George on a white field, the Scotch
white cross of St. Andrew on a blue
field and the Irish red cross of St. Pat
rick. The combination of the English
and Scotch flags was ngreed on In
1600, soon after the union of England
and Scotland under James I.
The word "Jack," as applied to the
British flag Is supposed to be a corrup
tion of "Jack," which was the common
abbreviation of "Jacobus," the Latin
for James. The Introduction onto the
flng of the cross of St. Patrick came
later. England's Union Jack traces
Its origin to those remote times when
knights rode In the lists and the red
cross of St. George on Its white field
goes back to the Crusades and the
Hundred Tears' war with France a
war that calls to mind such stirring
names as Crecy, Aglncourt and Poi
tiers. The American flag carried In the
battle of Bunker Hill had on it the
cross of St. George and a pine tree,
the symbol of Massachusetts. It Is
written by historians of the Ameri
can flag that when the first flag to
represent the united colonies was de
vised, as many horizontal stripes of
red and white were Introduced as
there were colonies, and as at that date
the colonies were not Independent, but
merely In revolt of the denial by the
English government of "their rights
as Englishmen," the ensign of Eng
land, the superimposed crosses of St.
George, St. Andrew and St. Patrick,
was retained by the Americans In the
upper staff corner of the flag.
Insurance Companies Start Campaign
for Greater Precautions With Back
ing of Uncle 8am.
Fire Insurance companies have un
dertaken to obtain the backing of
state councils of defense In a war
measure campaign to reduce fire risks
by educating property owners concern
ing the Importance of cleanliness and
orderliness In homes, Industrial plants,
and grain, food and cotton storages.
Director Glfford of the council of
national defense sent to state councils
the offer of the national board of fire
underwriters to do this work, with a
recommendation that the offer be ac-

Beautiful Skin, Outward Sign of In
ward Health, Depends Most of
All on Perfect Digestion.
True beauty comes from within. In
stead of from without. A healthy
skin Is the outward sign and the natur
al result of Inward health.
A muddy or dingy skin Is evidence
of the presence of poisons poisons
that are more than skin deep. It
Means the accumulation of tissue
wastes and particles of wornout mate
rial lying about the cells of the body,
clogging the tissues, interfering with
all the functions of the skin, clogging
the brain, paralyzing the nerve cen
ters and enervating the bodily ener
gies. A dingy skin cannot be cured by ex
ternal applications. Cosmetics may
conceal the evidence of external grlin
iness, but the grlmlness itself must
be got rid of by a simple und pure
A natural diet of fruits, grain and
nuts Is most conducive to a clear,
healthful and beautiful complexion.
Cheese, oysters, sausage, rich pas
tries, condiments and foods of this
kind conduce to the production of
hollow cheeks, dark-circled eyes and a
leathery skin, which no cosmetics,
baths or external applications of any
sort can remedy.
Clean living is required to produce
a clear skin cne that Is clean all the
way through, find transparent enough
to let the bright, pure blood coursing
in the arteries beneath shine through,
thus producing the bloom of health.
A beautiful skin depends most of all
upon perfect digestion. The processes
of digestion hnve a direct bearing upon
the color of the cheeks, which usually
show pretty well whether a woman is
enjoying good health and is free from
digestive disorders.
Idea Is Expected to Be Extended From
Motor Coats to Suits, Dresses and
Even Millinery.
One of the possible results of the
military styles being featured this sea
son Is the greater use of leather by
way of trimming.
While heretofore certain of the
motor coats have shown collars, cuffs
and belts of suede, or of glazed leath
er, It Is now anticipated that suits,
dresses, wraps and even millinery win
be decorated with leather in various
colors, and In schemes necessitated by
the fact that such garniture will be,
in effect, the byproduct or waste of
large skins used for army purposes.
Thus, as has been proved frequently In
the history of dress, novelty will be
the outcome of economy and necessity.
To Clean Gloves.
New white kid gloves may be
cleaned by rubbing with a cloth damp
ened with .milk and rubbed on, with
soap. After gasoline has been used
on the gloves this method fails.
Home Dressmaker Can Do Job Smooth
ly With Woolen Frocks by Mean
of Shrinking.
Home dressmakers frequently find It
difficult to put in the, hem of a woolen
frock smoothly. This can be done with
little trouble by means of shrinking.
Place a damp cloth over the hem and
press from the lower edge of the skirt
toward the top. All the extra fullness
can be entirely shrunk out, providing
the hem is not too wide.
This method does away with small
plaits usually found In a hem, the lines
of which are almost sure to show on
the outside of the skirt when the hem
Is pressed.
In finishing the edge of the hem do
not turn the cloth In. Baste the raw
edge flat to the other part of the skirt
and over this edge lay a flat piece of
seam binding. Sew the edge that does
not go through the right side with silk
or cotton thread, but the top edge
should be sewed with a thrend of the
fabric, drown from a lengthwise piece
of the material, not crosswUte
drawn to the back, where It Is tied In a
soft loop and end bow.- A cluster of
tiny tucks at the neck opening In front
gives a dainty finish to the blouse.
Several rows of hemstitching Indicate
the upper edge of the girdle.
Blouses that button In the back and
the slipover models are unquestionably
lenders, except In distinctly sport gar.
nicnts, and even lu these the slipover
model Is seen.
Idea Carried Out by Bib Effect
Front and Sometimes in Back, of
Same Material as Skirts.
Rome of the afternoon dresses f
summer seem to be modeled somewhat
on the idea of a bretelle or Jumper
dress. There Is a bib effect in rroni,
and sometimes In back, of taffeta, satin
nr of whatever the skirt may be muae,
Tills nllows considerable of the blouse,
of a thinner material, to show, which
gives a light and cool appearance to
the dress. The sleeves often stop ue-
tween the elbow and wrist. The loose
murrain or coat sleeve tine of sleeves
nre most favored, because they are
new nud Dartlcularly suited ror sum
mer wear. They are not cut too wide,
about sixteen inches in circumference
nt the lower edge.
Foulard silk in coin spots or pencil
stripes Is the favorite material for
these Juniper dresses. The gulmpes
are of lingerie or georgette crepe.
.Tnmnpr frocks of linen also are seen
those made of washable satin combined
with net.
Georgette crepe Is still considered
th ideal fabric for afternoon dresses
and voiles, both cotton and silk, which
hnve the charm of newness. Plain una
figured voile are combined with artis
tic effect in lovely afternoon gowns.
Th tinner nnrt muv be of the figured

Parasols for Summer.
The parasol, which has been some
what neglected for 'several summers,
Is again high In favor. In its new
form It is delightfully fanciful, and
both care and Ingenuity have been ex
pended upon its fashioning. Those
most practical are, of course, in the
plain one-tone effects In dark or 'medi
um coloring, and of these there is an
ample supply in all the modish color
ings. To be smart, one of these plain
parasols must have an effective han
dle, and in recognition of this fact the
manufacturers have been bringing out
handles that are beautiful and ex
ceedingly clever in design. The bright
hued enamels are particularly effec
tive, and they go well with the gay
hues of sports hats arid sports cos
tumes. These gleaming enamels come
In beautiful reds, greens, blues, pur
ples, yellows and rose tints.
Sewing or hemming with a thread
of the material Is a little secret that
even dressmakers know of, and Its
practice will give the most satisfactory
results. "
This metiod makes the stitches as
Invisible as the weave of the cloth and
should be useu In every purt of the
suit or dress where invisible sewing
Is desired. Of course some fabrics will
not permit of the raveling of the
threads, but wherever possible the
method should be tried out.
Pinchback Sweaters.
The pinchback, which has been so
popular in men's coats, is entering
largely Into sweater styles this sum
mer. Persian stripe silk Is made with
one, which is belted and has a deep
collar effect. It also comes In pink
turquoise and other shades.

A bulletin has been
giving the names and addresses of several hundred farmers In Pennsylvania,
Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, with a list of the products they have
for sale. One list contains the names of 100 people In these slates who have
eggs for sale, another list shows those who want to sell eggs and butter,
another list advertises eggs and poultry, and a much lnrger list gives the
names of those who have miscellaneous farm products for sale. This latter
list Includes eggs, poultry, butter, potatoes, fresh pork, sausage, honey, tur
nips, smoked meats, lard, oysters, fish, squabs, buckwheat, cornmeol, hominy,
sweet potatoes, scrapple, parsnips, carrots, apples, hickory nuts, walnuts,
peanuts, asparagus and other things.
Any farmer who has food products for sale which can be sent by parcel
post, has only to notify the Washington postmaster to have his name put on
the list, together with his address and the things he has for sale. These lists
are published In the bulletins Issued from time to time and circulated quite
generally In the city.
