5 Mother's Cook Book Creed of the Open Road To do our owr thinking, listening quietly to the opiniont of others, but to be sufficiently men and women to act always upon our own con victions. Ralph Waldo Trine. Spring Foods. The Importance of teaching chil dren to eat and enjoy vegetable food is a most Important one for all moth ers to consider. Vegetables add bulk to the food, holding foods in such manner that the digestive juices have free access. Vegetables contain val uable mineral matters which are In- timably valuable to the growing i l. Id, in fact Indispensable to a good l.'.'y structure of bones and muscles. Tlu mineral matter keeps the blood i.i sond balance, supply elasticity to !h Irood vessels and do many other tiinm ' to the functioning of the body. The 'timbinatlon of spinach, carrots, y.u or.h.u or two with a little celery s!i ofMvlnnl together is a most satisfac tory i:if5.v,re containing the valuable l.ilixnil k.i'is essential to the young. ;rov. !ns " ';'.

A little care hrri ih tjht should be given to the '('!. Uir. of young, tender, succulent v.v tables, allowing them to cook in J.;st water enough to keep them from burning, and that water should then be added to the seasonings In the form ofa sauce. If that method is not de sired, the liquid may be saved and put into the soup pot, thus saving all the mineral elements. The cooking of vegetables in a large amount of water and throwing it way is a most reprehensible waste, and one that should be most soundly con demned. One of the most important beginnings In teaching children to eat and like all kinds of vegetables is that the parents should always par take of them. Children as a rule can not be forced into eating things thsit are objectionable, and they have a right to object if the head of the fam ily does not eat them, for he is the pattern and example which all chil dren love to follow. If daddy eats carrots and spinach it is comparative fi j . .ercome any prejudice on 'h" rnrt of the children if they are iM-shr f?t!y enough.

Your HEALTH and the-WAR By DR. SAMUEL C DIXON Commiuioner of Health of Pennsylvania Since we are at war, let us have the lesson of the tremendous bearing of health problems on our armies in .camp and our citizens at home well learned, so that we may not have to learn it by bitter and calamitous ex perience. It would seem to be a late date to point out the almost self-evident fact that sickness will decrease the national efficiency by just so much, whether it be among soldiers or noncoinbatants, but the general public does not give enough attention to this aspect of war's demands, the accent being placed on more spectac ular elements of preparedness. Each individual must consider him self a unit of our great population to be kept able to meet whatever comes along. If there was ever a time when the individual had the duty of taking thought of how he could keep in good health, it is now. One of the first elements of the health of a nation at war or at peace, for that matter is its food. It cannot j he healthy and strong without good food, and plenty of it. Therefore ag riculture and gardening must be intel ligently and intensively stimulated, so that larger crops shall be brought forth. The housewife's task will be to economize the food supply and cook it with skill, so as to make her meals tasty and digestible. , The streams from which our dofttes tic water supply comes should be care fully guarded against pollution, so that communities shall not run the risk of being infected with some deadly disease. Vaccination against typhoid is a valuable step in preparedness under conditions as they are at present. The time has come to consider these matters in a spirit of patriotism. It is the duty of every citizen to attain physical fitness, and of the people as a whole, to take measures for the in creased production of food materials. Wanton destruction of food is an injury to our country just as positive ly as destruction of munitions or arms, for in the last analysis a nation that is well fed is the nation that will pre vail. These are matters already claim ing the attention of the federal gov ernment. Hand to hand with the mobilization' of factories and munitions must go the mobilization of agricultural prod ucts, the planting of as many acres of land as possible with grain and veg etables, and the distribution of the crops in the most economical way. Equal to the Occasion. "Why do you turn around and look after every woman we pass?" asked the angry wife. "Oh, dear," re plied the hus band, "I'm just looking to see if their husbands made as thorough work of hooking 'em up the back as I did with you." j SOME SMILES j t; LOUIS VERY STRONG JULY WHEAT GAINS 12 CENTS AT $2.43 AND SEPTEMBER JUMPS 9!2 CENTS AT $2.06.

The grave and learned authorities of Lynn County, School District No. 43, four miles north of Emporia, have appealed for'Miss Cornelia Triekey to be more girl babies. That is to say, the school authorities crave advice sci entific or any other kind having to do with such a situation as that which now confronts the district where, for nine years, there have been no girl babies born. The families within the boundaries of District 43 have supplied the birth records of the county with 22 entries within the nine years. But there are no feminine names on the list. Some persons, who admit they read certain literature upon New England witchcraft when they were very young, are of the opinion that a certain spinster has cast a spell upon the com munity to revenge Cupid's slight of her, and that until she is wed no other girls wil be added to the neighbor hood. These directors favored the appoint ment of an elderly bachelor to sacri fice himself for the benefit of the dis trict, which proposition was voted down. Some one has submitted an argu ment to the effect that the scarcity of girl babies was merely in line with the trend of the times toward scarcity of all valuable crops, for instance, po tatoes. However, the district as a whole re quires instructions from authoritative sources as to what proceedings are necessary to more evenly divide the birth rate. Girls, they declare, are the main support of all Kansas school dis tricts. In support of this statement they point out the dilemma of the father of Mary Riley, who celebrated the ninth anniversary of her brithday recently, and who is the last girl born in the district. Mary's father, they says, has reservations for Mary's hand and !irart on file f rom the parents of j every boy baby born within the last nine years. mi FORMER CAPE GIRL SUCCUMBS IN ILLMO Buried in Cape Friday? Afternoon. Miss Cornelia Triekey, daughter of Walter Triekey of Ulmo, died at the home of her parents yesterday morn ing of tuberculosis. Miss Triekey spent severa lmonths in the State Sanitorium at Mt. Vernon in an ef fort to regain her failing health, but when it became evident that she could not be cured, she returned to her home in Illmo. Her father, who is in the drug busi ness in Illmo, is well known in ttis city, having been in business here for several years. The funeral will take place in the Cape Friday afternoon. Miss Triekey will be buried at the side of her mother, who died several years ago. Miss Triekey was a graduate of the Jackson High School, which she and her brothers attended while her father resided in Jackson. She was 20 years old. Later the family moved to Oak Ridge where Mr. Triekey engaged in the drug business. In recent years the father has been owner of the City Drug Store in Ulmo. HOLLAND (MO.) FARMER DIED IN CAPE HOSPITAL Was Brought Here for Operation Death Ensued Shortly After His Arrival. Walter J. Haislip of Holland, Mo., died at the St. Francis Hospital yes terday morning at 7:C0 o'clock, of peritonitis.

Do you know that Beer nourishes, soothes, livens and cleanses the body as no other beverage does? Do you know that its malt is a food partly digested and most easily assimilated? Do you know its hops are a tonic to over-wrought nerves? Do you know that its small per cent of alcohol assists diges tion? Do you know that its liquid washes away clogging waste? All these things are true YOUR DOCTOR WILL TELL YOU SO! Beer is good for both the sick and the well. Doctors prescribe it for those who are weak and "run down."

Common garden sage brewed into a heavy tea, with sulphur and alcohol added, will turn gray, streaked and faded hair beautifully dark and luxuri ant. Mixing the Sage Tea and Sul phur recipe at home, though, is trou blesome. An easier way is to get the ready-lo-use preparation improved by the addition of other ingredients, cost ing about 50 cents a large bottle, at drug stores, known as "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound," thus avoid ing a lot of muss. While gray, faded hair is not sinful, wn all desire to retain our youthful ap pearance and attractiveness. By dark ening your hair with Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound, no one can tell, because it dot s it so naturally, so even ly. 1 ou just dampen a sponge or soft brusn with it and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time; by morning all gray hairs have disappeared. After another applica tion or two your hair becomes beau tifully dark, glossy, soft and luxuriant and you appear years younger. Wy eth's Sage ad Sulphur Compound is a delightful toilet requisite. It it not intended for the cure, mitigation ox prevention of disease. Adv. thought an operation would have his life, but peritonitis had developed and he died a few hours after his arrival. Haislip is survived by his wife and three children. He also has several sisters and brothers, one of whom came to this city to accompany the body back to Holland for burial. The body was shipped out yester day afternoon on the Gulf line, and burial will take place this afternoon in the old Stedfield Cemetery near Hol land. r, I Li
