THIS HOW TO PREPARE IT If It Has a Strong Odor, That Can So Easily Rcmsdlad—Ssafarlng Folk Hava Known of Its Valua As Food. Washington.—With the more fre quent appearance of new aea foods In onr markets, the troth of the old say ing, There are as good fish In the sea as have ever been caught,” Is acquiring a.new application. This Is especially true of a large family of Ashes representatives of which occur on all shores of the sea and In all dimes—the sharks, strong, active, gracefully shaped Ashes, varying In length from a few Inches to fifty feet or more, which offer a wholesome, palstable and nutritious food, compar ing favorably In dietary qualities with many of the highly priced sea foods. Many people, Indeed, have recog nised their value and have utilized them extensively for food. In the countries bordering on the Mediter ranean and In Oreat Britain. Norway and Sweden they are well known as valuable and nutritious foods. At Folkestone, England, the flesh of one of the small sharks, salted and dried. Is marketed as “Folkestone beef." Un til recently their'use as a food In the United States has been limited prin cipally to seafaring people In scattered localities and to the Ash markets of some of our larger cities, but with late Interest aroused In new sea foods they are Andlng a place In our largest Ash-dlstributlng centers and have ap peared on the menus of some of the leading hotels In several cities. Of Wide Distribution. As already intimated, sharks are of ■ride distribution, occurring In all seas from the equator to polar waters, but In greatest abundance In the tropics. Those, however, taken In the cooler waters of the temperate zones ire among the most desirable species for food, and It Is from these that the principal supply Tor the markets of this country Is obtained. Like the cod, aqueteague, bine fish and other well-known Ashes, sharks feed mainly on Ashes, crabs, mollusks and other small forms living In the sea. their method of foraging and cap ture in many cases being unusual and Interesting. The thrasher shark uses Its whip-like tall, which Is as long as Its body, to splash the water as It swims round and round a school of Ash In ever narrowing circles, crowd ing the Ash closer and closer together until the moment of attack. The grayAsb, sand sharks and some other species work In schools and do not hesitate to attack the Ash taken In the fishermen’s nets, the Isrger forms tesrlng the nets and liberating the catch. The economic uses to which these forms may be put are somewhat varied.

The yield varies from lees than a pint In some of the smaller sharks to about 128 gallons In some of the larger sixes. The meat of sharks is white, slight ly gelatinous, resembling halibut, but somewhat less firm, and compares fa vorably In food value with other staple food Ashes and meats.

The soviet emissaries were stopped at the railway station and asked for their Red Cross permits to travel.

He waved away the safe-conducts without ceremony and ordered the diplomats to report at once for disinfection or prepare to remain In Narva until the lifting of the quarantine. Hot words on the part of the Russians followed, but the Red Cross official was adamant. Finally, breathing threats and pro tests, the emissaries marched with their luggage from the station to the disinfecting post. Lusty hands, little heedful of the diplomatic sacredness of their persons, stripped them of their dothes, scrubbed them ruthlessly, and rolled them In blankets to await the disinfection of their garments and luggage. Not until every scrap of their belongings, even to diplomatic documents, was thoroughly delouaed, were the peace envoys allowed to de part, every whisker standing on end with suppressed rage.

Westsm Newspaper Union News Service. Washington.—Participation by tha United States in any conference of representatives of Russia and the si lled governments looking to a restora tion of p<8te between Poland and the soviet governmnt is regarded here as Improbable, but In the absence of all but the scnntest of official Informs tion, most declined to dis cuss the matter. President Wilson is understood to be keeping in close personal touch with the new European crisis and the question of American participation in the-proposed conference will be for his determination. The only official information the State Department has Is that nego tiations are in progress regarding the time and place of the conference be tween the Russian and Polish repre sentatives. No intimation had come from the American embassy at. Lon don or the British foreign office that Russia has suggested a conference of allied governments. London. —George Tchitcherln, Rus sian minister for foreign affairs, has addressed n note to the allies and the United States dealing with alleged crimes supposed to have been com mitted by the Poles, for which the soviet government declares will hold them responsible. The- note was sent to Great Britain at the same time ns the communica tion which stated that the soviet gov ernment was prepared to attend a conference In London on the general terms connected with peace. The note declares the workers of Poland are not held responsible, but asserts that they have been misled by the dominant class. The tone of the note rather suggests that this matter will be included in the armistice terms, made with Poland.

The four hundredth anniversary of the birth of Christophe Plantin, the noted French printer of the sixteenth century, will be commemorated with appropriate ceremonies in Antwerp during August.- Plantin was a son of Belgium only through adoption. He was born somewhere in historic Toumlne. It was the peculiar achievement of Plantin to bring honor and glory to the printer’s trade in the days of Its infancy. With a keen appreciation of the beauties of literature, Plantin delighted in perfecting his workman ship In order that these beauties might be published in the most at tractive form possible, although his tools were those of a common work man. His chef-d’oeuvre was the fa mous Bibl* a polygotta—published -in IWHMS73 fin attempt at a scientific revision of the text of the Old and New Testaments.

There was to be a banquet at an Indianapolis church and one of the parishioners felt sure that he would be called on for a speech. Realizing how poor lie was at impromptu speeches he accordingly made ready for this occasion by writing one and then memorizing it. The night of the banquet came and after rehearsing his speech to hla proud wife the parishioner went to church, elated over his forethought. The crowd assembled and gathered around the table. And then —then the minister called on the parishioner to say “grace.’* For a minute he was appalled—also his wife. But bravely he rallied and began to compose a grace. He gave one sentence, hesitated and then, to his wife’s horror, plunged into the middle of his speech. He finished It, too. Of course every one was amazed, bis wife most of all, for you see ho even used his practiced gestures. Electrical Sterilization.

At this low temperature, the state of the milk la not altered and its properties seem to be in no way Impaired, while the elec tric treatment greatly increases tho time of keeping. The tests were made with two types of apparatus, different degrees of current and severaj qual ities of milk. Preparatory Knicker —What are the graduate's plans?
