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.
Wonderfully Built Up By
Tanlac and Able to Go

"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

three and four big, hearty meals every

Arrangements for the manufacture
of papyrus grass in Zuliiland arc ir v.

J. Pisar of ( ape Town. A Norwegian

has secured a concession over several
square miles from which to resp all

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

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
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.

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.

The making of alcohol from saw

by a mild acid solution under pres

Most of the time this week has been
devoted to the holding of meetings in
various communities. 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:

the following community program was
drawn up at this meeting:'

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

The storekeeper never makes any profit
from "shelf dingers."
It is goods that sell rapidly that keep the
cash register playing- '
And the kind of goods that keep moving
are the kind the public likes.
But before people can like anything they
must know it and the way they begin ac
quaintance is through advertising.
When the manufacturer asks the merchant
to stock up his goods the storekeeper has
a right to ask:
"Arc you advertising your goods in the
newspapers where my customers will, read
about them"?
The only kind of advertising which goes
to all your customers, Mr. Merchant, is
newspaper advertising.
