Long List of Beverages and Desserts in Which Juice Can Be Used, as Well as in Number of Sauces for Fish and Meat In the olden times sailors who took long trips and ate no fresh vegetables and fruits for weeks or months were likely to fall victims to scurvy. Finally a cure or a partial cure for It was found In lemon Juice. Of lnte years scientists have been making a study of scurvy, its cnuse and Its cure and of the conditions that make the body proof against this disease. They have discovered a sub stance called vitamlne C, which seems to prevent and even to cure this dis ease. It is found in many foods, among them tomatoes and such cit rus fruits as oranges, grapefruit and lemons. Lemons, therefore, have a new im portance In the diet, according to food specialists In the United States De partment of Agriculture, office of home economics. They are no longer to be valued simply for their flavor, but also as a source of one of these necessary substances. Lemons can be prepared In all sorts of ways In the preparation pf meals.

Lemon juice Is also good on spinach and other green vegetables, on many kinds of salads, and also as flavoring lor pudding sauces and cakes.

What Good-Natured Americana Have to Endure in Theee Daye la Burely “a Plenty." Americans are prubably the most Fully Advised people on earth. The whole land Is full of emergency rostrums where people who huve . a passion for advising their brethren may repair and relieve their minds In detuil. No people nre more Talked To and Talked At. and no people are more Tolerant and Good-Nuturcd übout It. Not only is tiie land full of native advisory tulent, but udvisers hive here from other lands und insist upon Ex plaining Matters to us—giving us the low-down and the real McCoy on a variety of topics, many of them ex ceedingly dull. The lnnd Is full of well-fed, impruc tlcal theorists who have Thought It All Out und nre Willing and Anxious to Tell About It, asserts Glenn M. Farley in the Seattle Post-lntelll gencer. Most of the Fluent Speakers are men who have never done anything in all their long lives but write or talk. They never, by any chance, have got Into the thick of things themselves; never been horned around and pushed and shoved and stepped on, or ac quired calloused hands or practical ex perience In Working fora Living; never stood up to the East Wind of Hard Luck and Hard Work and Won Through in spite of discouragements. Still they are Perfectly Willing to Explain Matters and tell how to correct our sad mistakes of Judge ment. The land is full of Instructors With out Appointment and Guides Without Certificates. Is it any wonder that we are so often on the wrong track? Is It not a miracle that we nre on the road at all and making progress? The lnnd is full of Critics, men anx ious to point out the errors of poor, lost, wandering •humanity; men keen to tear down and destroy the work of others und furnish nothing construc tive to replnce it; men full of theories, but short on pructice. It is a fine thing 'for a citizen t,o huve u Helpful Theory, but a still finer thing for him to Work It Out. It seems to come nuturul to a lot of people to Explain Mutters. When u citizen feels moved to go out in the Buck Yard und Undertake to Plant u Garden some neighbor is Quite Apt to step over und Lean on the Fence and Explain to him precisely how the gurden should be Put In. Whut a Splendid, Grand Glorious Thing it would be if all the Volunteer Instructors and Guides and Exhorters would Stop Talking und Go to Work themselves! As it is, a lot of the Listeners are Getting Nervous. They are getting rea sonably well Fed Up with Instruction. When a man who has been Through the Mill Raises ids Voice in counsel, lie generally bus something of value to say. But when a party witli a Gas Bag moves in arid begins to Release the Gas he becomes a nuisance to every body. He annoys people who are really working und accomplishing something, und often drops a monkey wrench or u screw driver into the machinery. There are orutors running around with a Load of Misinformation who would probably Be All Bight if they Had a Batli und a Haircut and con sented to Go to Work. Anyhow, it would be Worth Trying, and it would be a Wonderful Belief to the Public.

One of the most interesting of na ture’s processes is that by which cracks in volcanic rocks are filled in with materials brought up in hot solu tions from the bowels of the earth. It Is by tills means that “veins" and “lodes" of gold and silver are formed. In tiie eastern part of Iceland there is a locality where such cracks in rocks have been filled in with a pure carbonate of lime which forms clear and beautiful crystals. These crystals, .called “Iceland spar," have a peculiar property of "polarizing" light, which makes them valuable for in con nection with Jid other optical instruments. Within the last few years deposits of Iceland spar have been discovered in Sweetgrnss county, Montana, und In the Warner range near Cedarville, Calif. Efforts are being made to de velop them.—Philadelphia Ledger.

The traders in turn sold him to a rich farmer~l!or a sum equivalent to somewhat less than three English pounds. This farmer told Bedrus that ho would adopt him us his son and mako him his heir if the . Armenian lad would renounce his Christian iaith and become a Mohammedan. The lad kept his own counsel until they arrived at a small hotel In Human. The hotel keeper, an Arabian Christian, whis pered to the boy that in three days he would help him te escape. While the farmer was busy with his affairs In the town, the hotelkeeper sent the boy to a friend, another Arabian Chris tian, who owned a lunch room in an other part of the town. Here Bedrus worked for seven months as a waiter. Testing Work of a Huge Sound Amplifying Device Within the quiet confines of the Yama Ynma farms at Naponach, N. Y., some two-score presidents of the tin* tlon’s foremost telephone and telegraph companies gathered to study a huge voice-and-sound amplifying derlea. Strains of music, originating In Chicago, were transmitted to the amplifier which Intensified the sound wtTM as that they could be plainly heard for a distance of four miles from the Yama Yams farms. A detachment of the British army come to the village and picked up many of the Armenian 'orphans, in cluding Bedrus, and took them to a newly organized orphanage in Mosul. The boy did not know ills parents were refugees In that city until they, with other Anncniun parents seeking lost children, came to the orphunage and found Bedrus. Die of Starvation. Tho family reunion was a happy one, but food was scarce. Within the year the eldest sister, eighteen years of age, died of starvation. Five months later the father died of the same cause. The mother’s death fol lowed in two weeks. The boy man aged, with the help of the English army, to get back to Adana, accom panied by his two younger sisters, who later were taken by the British to Port Said. Bedrus found a job in a tailor shop in his home town, where he worked for four months, when Turk ish soldiers ngnin looted the homes of the Armenians and sold the hoys and girls into slavery and he fled toward Beirut. There he worked as a dock laborer for three months, when, fearing the Turks would find him and return him to slavery, he started to Constantino; pie. There an Armenian society gave him a Job without pay except his board, In a general store, where he stayed for six months.
