The Iowa, Which Played a Prominent Parf in Spanish War, to Be Destroyed. Washington, D. C, July 26. The once famous battleship Iowa, which played .no small part in the destruc tion of Cevera's fleet at Santiago, is being prepared at the Philadelphia nay yard for what naval officers say will be one of the most unique experi ments ever attempted. ' Proceeding unmanned, but under her own steam and controlled by radio, probably from seaplanes, the old sea- "fighter wjll become the objective of the big guns of the Atlantic fleet super-dreadnoughts in Chesapeake bay late this summer. This will be the first time that American warships have used a moving crafty for a target except in actual war. Two of the Iowa's coal burning boil ers are being converted to burn oil so the ship may continue under way with no one aboard once her tires have been started burning and her engines placed in motion. , t It is expected that the unique prac tice will give the gun- pointers of the Atlantic fleet an opportunity to test their ability under conditions as near ly like those to fee expected in .battle as can be obtained. Smoke screens will be thrown around the Iowa dur ing the runs and. the course will be (hanged at will through the radio ton trol system, necessitating a change in range on all the firing ships, ex actly as would occur in action. ; The Iowa has already been stripped of some of its guns and much valu able metal and thepractioe will be con tinued until the old vessel, a mass of twisted metal, sinks beneath the waves to join the old Texas, which, as the San Marcos, was used for as a station ary target years ago. The battleship Ohio has been turned over to the bureau of steam engineer ing for purposes of experiment in ra dio control and a staff of expert tech nical officers has been placed on board to arrange the Iowa practice. DUTY TO TELL IT, SAYSMLDIER Wonderfully Built Up By Tanlac and Able to Go to Work Again "Yes sir, Tanlac has helped my mother and myself sg much that I feel it my duty to tell the whole world about this medicine," said Frank lfam ilton, of 20 Bradford St., Portland, Me., a few days ago. - Recently Mr. Hamil ton received his honorable discharge from the U. S. Army. "I had been in bad health for over a year," continued Mr. Hamilton, "and since my discharge from the Army some time ago I had been in such a weak- run-down condition that I was unable to work. My appetite was so poor that 1 hardly ate enough to keep me going. Mother would, have a big dinner prepared for me, but when I got to the table my appetite left 'me audi the sight of fonod would nauseate me so that 1 would have to get up and leave. ' It seemed that everything turned against me and for the past three months I lost strength and energy rapidly. My sleep was restless and when I got up every morning I iust felt so weak and worn-out 1 could hardly drag myself about. "M mother had been in a miserable run down condition also, and sheMiad taken Tanlac with such fine results that I started taking it and it began to build me up right away and to-day I am feeling better thatM have in all my life and can hardly realize what a remarkable change has come over me. My appetite is as fine, if not better. thai" it ever was and I am eating three and four big, hearty meals every day and still feci hungry. Everything agrees with me perfectly and my strength and energy have come back to me. I sleep so sound at night that they 'have to call roe a half-dozen times and then shout right in my ear before I ever wake up. I feel so strong I am planning to go back to work immediately." Tanlac is sold in Barrc by the Barre Drug Co., in Xorthfield by Nat A. Wheeler, in Waterbury by Brisbin Brisbin, and in Websterville by E. H. Nerney. Adv. TROLLEY LINE LOST.

Arrangements for the manufacture of papyrus grass in Zuliiland arc ir v. in progress, says Vice Consul Charles J. Pisar of ( ape Town. A Norwegian rompany, Walmer Papyrus Pulp Co.) has secured a concession over several square miles from which to resp all reeds and papyrus grass which nr.' "-n nidered to be excellent raw mstri:'.ls for the manufacture of paper pulp. A factory capable of turning out h, 900 tons of pulp a year is now being frected at I'mfolosi. Most of the ma chinery and equipment was obtained in the United States. The company intend at first only to manufacture paper pulp. It is esti mated that it will take fully 40,000 Ions of raw material to produce the 3,000 ton of pulp, but as the growth f this grass is perennial, and the area where it is found is so ext4iie, an I bunds nop of raw material is assured ai h year, according to American For try' announcement. The papyrus la to be rut by hand in the same way is sugar iinr. The grass is dried, lasted through a cutting machine, and .hen pressed and limcvvashed. An abun Is nee of cheap colored labor is avail ihle. Later on the company intends xi extend its operations to the manti 'act ure of papr, textiles, and bag. American ForrMrr Magazine.

FENCES SOLD BY POUND. If us boys could vote on the best kind of corn flakes Post Toasties would win hands Assays Aturocers Everywhere So Great Is the Demand for Seasoned Cedar Timber for Pencils and Articles. Most writers would be surprised if told that the carefully painted, bright ly colored lead pencil for which he finds constant use is a part of an old fence rail, but such probably is the case. The wood of the best grade of lead pencil is made from red cedar, and red cedar regions in the I'nited States are rather limited. One of these is found in the limestone valleys of mid die Tennesee, where dense growths of cedar occupy the rocky slopes and glades. When the early settlers came into this region over one hundred years ago cedars were so abundant that they made rails for fences, cribs for corn, barns and houses from cedar. Cedar is one of the most durable of woods, and many of these old fences and buildings are still in ue. Rails, split perhaps by some pioneer Abraham Lin coln or Andrew Jackson working fur a dollar a day, ate now old and gray, covered by moss and lichens, lmt as sound and durable a when first, made and .worth the original cost with ac cumulated interest. With the contantly increasing de mand for cedar and the erection of cedar mills in many of the towns, old cedar rails and logs from old build ings find a ready market at gd prn-es. t Hon- orr ceaar ranges in price from $6 to ?Lfl per thousand pounds, and even dry redar is not lijiht. A very ordinary -edar fence may lie sold for enough to replace it with the bet grade of woven wire fence, even at present high prices of fenc ing, with a good bonus for the ex change. In some cae the rails ned in fero ing a tract of land are now worth mire thaa the market value of the land itself only few years ago. The usefulness of cedar, however, is j no confined to pencil wood. Jreen I ceilar, if large enough, is aed into ! hoards for th manufacture of riftin, ; cedar rbet or for ep"rt. The stnall--r polra are rut into the proper lengths f.ir fence po-t and even the sadn-t i treated and from it valuable in) distnicd Cutting and hauling cedar is sn tnr''iant industry during the win ter, i Se rrdar flade beir a nirt ,,f ...?. drraliie reven.ie on many tariti Kn t itv sr.

A great many always make their white window shades of a heavy white cotton cloth. Then they can be laun dered easily and frequently. In making jam of strawberries, rasp berries or other berries, use equal parts of the berry and rhubBrb. The jam will have the fruit flavor and the quantity used will be much less, says Modem I'riscilla. Using Evaporated Milk. Modern science has found a way to provide everyone with pure whole milk, Kven those who are thousands of miles from a source of supply may enjoy fresh, nourishing milk by mere ly opening a can of evaporated milk. Evaporated milk is sweet milk with all the cream left in and some of the water taken out. It is canned and sealed so that it is pure and freh when the can is opened. The uses for evaporated milk are as varied as for freh milk, says the Springfield Republican. It serves as eream or milk,' according to which is needed. For cream, Use it undiluted, just as it comes from the can. It is rich and fine flavored in coffee; on fruit or cereal in fact, any place where ci earn is ca'Ied for. For use as milk in cooking, enough water should be added to replace that which was taken out by evajtoration. In the bcht brands, two parts of water should be added to one part milk. Thus diluted, the nutriment contained is greater than that in skimmed milk, for it still has all the elements of white milk. Many excellent cooks prefer to use evaporated milk for cooking purposes. They say that it gives a finer, smooth er, texture to sauces, custards and other creamy mixture. I 'scd in cakes and cookies, they find less fat is nec essary than the recijie calls for, lie cause of the richness of the milk. In other rooking, too, evaporated milk saves expenses by reducing the amount of shortening needed. With a sunplv of evaporated milk in her pantry, the housewife has all the ad vantages of owning a cow and none of the responsibilities. Kvaporated milk is proving to be just what it was man ufactured to be a solution to the problem of how to have fresh milk al ways ready tj use. Dorothv IV-xter.

A very enthusi astic imtrting was held at Thetford hill on Tuesday evening. Wednesday evening there was a comnmnity meet ing at Williainstown arranged by the grange. This was also an enthusiastic meeting and a definite community pro gram for the farm bureau was adopted with the following projects and If aders: Farm organization, Neil Smith, Mrs. C J. Blanchard; crop improvement, C V. Cram; household accounts, Mrs. C. J. Blanchard j dairy improvement, Or ville Walbridge; tireless cookers, Mrs. T. (1 Williams; certified seed potatoes, T. (.

Friday evening a public meeting was held at North Randolph by the grange. About one hundred 'people were pres ent at this meeting and a very good meeting resulted. Saturday evening a similar meeting was held with Ran dolph grange. Mrs. !.' K. Carrigan, as sistant county agent leader, and Miss Charlotte Pierpont, home demonstration agent leader, have assisted the county agent in these meetings and the aim has been to explain the work of the farm bureau, to emtiurage the adoption of local programs for the work of the farm bureau and to increase the inter est and enthusiasm in the home demon' st rat ion work so that the required membership of ,'tH3 may bo reached and a new agent put to work in Orange county. J Thursday the planned for creamery - j community pn-nir at Strafford devel oped into a first class hay day so the picnic did not materialize to aiy extent. The cream si-oting contest was put on. however, at the crcjwncry. Forty-five samples of cream were scored by V. R. .Tones, dairy manufacturing specialist, and F. J. Miller, state creamery in spector. The score cards have not been received at this oflice m a complete re port rannot Im made at this writi-g. The three prize of $.", M and $2 were won by W. E.

Uerman universities have been hard hit by the depneiation of the mark. "The ruin of German cur rency," says Dr. Ernst Troeltsch, pro fessor of philosophy at the University of Berlin, "has enclosed German science and education in a kind of Chinese wall, which ia strengthened by other countries' hatred of Germany, eypeeial ly France's. We are being subjected to a scientific boycott and a moral blockade. The Versailles treaty pois oned the air with its dogma of guilt." He contends that science should be in ternational in thought and co-operation. ?VpVs ' B B a lV'1 nPHOSE indented grip spots, in the JsWVlM ll "" V center of each cleat, are safeguards ffMl J" against side-slipping.

Work for the Legless. j Men w ith deformed or crippled legs, sitting on the pavement begging, are a more or less familiar .--iglit , a.i.. n a pity that it is so. .No man witn two good eyes and two good hands needs to beg. The world today is ready to employ at good wages every pair of hands that can produce anything useful. One with crippled feet is not there by out of the industrial race. A hun dred interesting lines of endeavor at desk or bench are open to him. Ac counting, short hand and typewriting are possible to anyone with eyes and hands. The very fact of limited loco motion often serves to develop uncom mon manual skill. Light bench work, the making and mending ofv things where expensive machinery is not a necessary shop equipment, form a field where the crip pie may be master of his own busine. From this day on, perhaps indefinitely, the expert mender will le one of the best paid workers. The manufacturer of willow and rattan ware, particularly of furniture, will be an increasing industry. Hard woods fit for furniture are rapidly be coming exhausted: but willow and rat tan are practically exhaustless. The gTrater part of this weaving- is and always will be done by hand. Even now an expert rattan furniture maker is a rare and well-paid workman. This is a business that a man with but his two hands at command, can hope, ta master. ' Eonomy is becoming popular and necessary. Probably never again will America feel too rich to use scraps of valuable material. Because a Man has lost his feet he need not feel con strained to neglect his hand. Minne apolis Journal. She Calls No More. "Mrs. Newcomb, you're an , artist, aren't you?" v "Why, no. child.
