The observ ers' n- Is are similar to those for the pilots for airplanes, except the equili briuvi test is not included in th exam ination for observers.

The nn'mal had become so crazy that It had become necessary to tie her wilh n strong rope to keep her from beating herself to death against the side of a barn. As there was no known cure for a crazy mule. Doctor Sanders, a veteri narian, who was called to attend her, decreed she should be shot. Her ex ecutioner went for a revolver, but be fore he returned the mule had flipped the rope around her neck, and lunping backward, choked herself to death. r jicZ74UcMt t WAITING FOR CUSTOMERS U j'-.as?.1"'- : - :s..!Z,iiCmi?9 V j k-Kz!.

AMERICAN TO REBUILD TOWN Dun-Sur-Meuse in France Is Promised Restoration by Man of Same Name. Paris. The inhabitants of the little town of Dun-sur-Meuse are convinced that, after all, there is a lot In a name.

A new opportunity for women to help in the war is offered by the Na tlonal Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, through their war relief committee, of which Jlrsi Matthew T. Scott is chairman. It is sending out a call to the women of the country to make an nil-American city or town of the place In which "they live. It asks enlistment for this spe ciol service which works directly witb The unusslrnilated immigrant, ignorant of or indifferent to America's history, customs and laws, unpledged to sup port our flag, rearing a family with un Americnn views of life and reading only foreign language papers. They hope to bring about the day when the. alien, becoming naturalized, shall take the oath of allegiance to the flag itself, not to the man administer ing the oath in n court room; when a' ballot is put into his hand accompanied by an American flag, with full respon sibility and honor of ownership ; when it is obligatory that he learn the Eng lish language; when he shall be com pelled to send his children to public school; and when certain days of the year shall be called Americanization days, on which resident aliens shall take the oath of allegiance. Many of the "Daughters" are work ing seriously on this project, giving il lustrated lectures in settlements and schools. : riow Shepherds Know Their Sheep. From Westmoreland comes an Inter esting example of the way in which shepherds know their sheep. To them no two sheep are alike, any more than two people, says this Westmoreland correspondent of the English Manches ter Guardian. The writer's brother had a number of black-faced sheep near Shap Fell, and one day a shep herd come to him and said: '"There's one of your sheep at sec a spot a goodish bit off your heaf, that, eh?" ! "Are you quite sure it was one of my i sheep?" the man was asked. "As j sure as sh's which (alive)." And then he went Into an elaborate description of thet facial peculiarities of the ani mal, for he knew it by sight as well as he knew Its owner. The orthodox markings of the sheep he did not even touch tinon. leaving them for final proof, if such were needed. Christian j Science Monitor. How to Clean a Gas Stove.

OR GO HOME, ORDER u. s Ambulance Drivers in France Are Given Peremptory Command. Paris. France. The Paris Herald reports that more than 200 youn? Americans wearing the uniforms of ambulance drivers were rounded up recently by the American military au thorities. The numbers of their pass ports were taken and they were told to call at headquarters, where all but five appeared. There they were informed again that they must enlist In some branch ff the active service overseas or they vould be sent back to America, where they would be dealt with as the cir cumstances warrant. As for the five who did not ar.near nt headquarters, the Herald savs, it is reported that when they are found j harsh measures asrainst them will ha taken. ! w: HY WHY National Guard Is Being Gradually Eliminated National Guardsmen now serving in the federal service, will become civ ilians at the end of the war, says the Indianapolis Star. Because of the drafting of the entire National Guard into federal service, states now have no National Guard. What formerly was the state National Guard has been wiped out of existence. A number of inquiries as to the status of the Guardsmen brought this information from the war department : When the National Guard of a state was drafted imo federal service every man was formally discharged from state service. This means, the war heads say, that all members of the National Guard rais d in the state will become civilians when luustereii out of federal service. This is '.ilTen nt from what hap pened when the local troops went te the Mexican border. They were noi discharged from state service at tha' time, and when their in-riod of serv ice on the border ended they returne to their old station as members o the National Guard at home. The war department has advised tin state authorities that they inuy pro ceed with the creation of a new Na tlonal Gu;:-d, provided they stay with in the law, which limits the Guard t not exceeding JSOw members tor even representative and each of the rcna- ' tors from the state in congress. When the war with Germany ends the mem bers of the old National Guard, now in the federal service, will not return to their armories and will not replace the regiments that may be raised since they left. Although the governors of all the states have been notified of the au thority conveyed by law to organize new National Guards, not exceeding SO0 per representative and senator, the instances where initial steps have been taken to do so are very rare. War department officials and army offi cers generally frankly admit that the National Guard, as it Avas before the United States entered war, is being gradually eliminated and no regret is evProssed bv tho reimlirs who have I aiwavs n51j u nreiudioe acainst the i rays Guard. SHOES INVENTION OF CELT How Footgear Was Found Necessary to Protect the Feet From Injury. Nobody knows who was the first shoemaker. There must have been a time when everybody went barefoot ed, observes ;i writer, and the first shoes v.nv probably made of woven reeds or skins. The original shoemak er do l,0.,l less ;oupl;l comfort more than Myle. The Celt, who at times wan- j dered over moor and morass, at oth ers over stony mountains, invented a shot that suited his purpose. A sole of heavy hides protected his feet from sharp stones, while uppers or legs of lighter skin protected his ankles and legs from thorns and bushes. The buskin was so construct ed that the water exuded from it as soon as the foot ceased to be eraersed. In the modern shoe, the idea is that water he kept out, not let out. The j buskin wrm l" Ilu,,luu toes, wmcn in timo- S so ,onP ,hat th(,.v t0 he fanned to the wearer's knees. j i M-ltic buskin was tough and elastic, 1 iDg the owners K per cent above pre and could be replaced wherever there J war prices.

Poultry do not require expensive equipment or artificial conditions, but rather to the contrary. When the ioultry house is made plain, substantial, and equipped with interior fittings that will afford easy cleaning for keeping out vermin, the plan is a good one. The size- of a poultry house is a problem that must be solved by the builder, according to the space and the system adopted. But there are certp'n rules that should govern the breeor when plan ning his poultry house that must be observed. When fowls are to be confined they need more floor space than when they 1 iitted to range. euare feet per fowl Is con : .-; pie space under ordinary . and less space may be ad 's when fowls are free to Mtli of housos shonM never ; .: . nw fop tin ir lei1gi h. and 12 " i t l:i width ismnc'i better and chopp er thaa a narrow house.
