SCHOOLS FOR ALL
STATES OF NATION
PRESIDENT TO
ALLOW $30,000
FOR FISHERIES
New Yorlc Jan. Establishment
of state nautical schools similar to
those in Massachusetts tind New York
is urged in a letter which, it was an
nounced here today, the National
Marine League of the United States
has sent to the governors of 4S states.
States unable to establish their own
schools, the letter suggests, might
provide scholarships for their resi
dents in schools of other state; or
provision might be made by two
states for a Joint school.
Washington, Jan. 8 An appropria
tion of $30,000 has been turned over
to the bureau of fisheries by Presi
dent Wilson from his emergency de
fense fund for promoting the use of
new fish foods. The appropriation
was recommended by Secretary Red
field and Food Administrator Hoover.
Secretary Redfield said today that
approximately 25,000 tons of new fish
foods already have been sold as a re
sult of propaganda by the depart
ment of commerce, costing less than
J15.000.

They renew their youth with fresh
courage andquickened spirit. It.sure
is a pleasure to see the way they have
come back and in such a short time,
too.
They are all loud in praise of Phos
phated Iron, the new wonder nerve
and blood tonic. As one "old-timer"
said, "I could fairly feel it putting the
'Pep' and 'kick' in my run-doTjn, old
body. I was worn out, all in and
thought I was on my last legs, but
a tonic and bracer to put me on my
feet and get me going again.
"Believe me, Phosphated Iron is
the goods and say, it made a -new
woman of my wife, too. We will
never be without it in our house."
Honest physicians will tell you that
Phosphates and Iron are the best
tonics and health builders for the
aged, nervous, weak and run down.
It increases the quantity and quality
of blood.
It makes thin, poor blood rich, red
and new.
Rich, red blood pumped through
the veins drives out poison and car
ries health, strength and vigor to
every part of the body. If you are
run down, all in, lost your nerve, take
a brace, get next to yourself and try
Phosphated Iron. It really does what
it claims. It will not disappoint you,
you can't go wrong on this tip. Ask
the man or woman who has tried it.
Good doctors and druggists prescribe
it.
To insure physicians and their pa
tients getting the genuine Phosphated
Iron it is put up in capsules only. Do
not allow dealers to give you pills or
tablets. Insist on capsules. Hindis

Some idea of the enormous de
mands which the 'war is making on
the country's "oeace" industries may
be gained from the fact that of the
total output of the American enamel
ed, galvanized and tin ware utensils,
more' than one-fourth is now being
diverted to military hospital and
camp uses A particularly heavy de
mand for enameled ware in the hos
pitals is noted.
Tnis ooservation is made from a
canvass of some of the lareer manu
facturers of kitchen and other house
hold wares, who employ thousands of
men and women workers and whose
ouptput totals more than $30,000,000
a year.
Securing the raw materials neces
sary to keep the enameled ware in
dustry at highest efficiency is the
principal concern of the makers.
They point out the obvious fact that
it is more economical, for instance, to
keep a plant at work with 1,000 em
ployes than 100, .and that scarcity of
materials is practically the only bar-
rier.to maximum operation in the fu
ture. Government requisitions for enam
eled, galvanized and tin ware utensils
in almost every branch of army life
are being received in increasing num
bers. The variety of demands which
the early days of the war have made
upon this single industry gives some
idea of the complexity of war prepar
edness work. A pimcipal service of
the wares seems to be the mainten
ance of sanitation in the food supply
and general living conditions. Dust
pans, navy buckets, used for individu
al laundry and bathing tubs on land
and sea; fry pans, ash cans, meas
ures and dish pans are only a few of
the items needed in large quantities.
; It is said to be a freqnent occurrence
i for these makers to estimate on such
requisitions as 200,000 pie plates, 20,-
000 dish pans, or 30,000 measures.
Manufacturers predict that the
present rate of twenty-five to thirty
per cent, of their business for distinct
war uses will continue for many
months to come.

(Special to The Farmer)
Stratford, Jan. 8. The people of
Stratford living on the outskirts of the
town have been without mall for the
past week. This is, however, not due
to any fault of Stratford's postmaster,
William B. Bristol. Many complaints
have been received and much gossip
is being heard about the supposed
negligence of the local post office.
Francis Moore, who has been the
rural letter carrier ever since Benjam
in Smith resigned to become a patrol
man nearly three months ago, is very
ill at his home, Nichols avenue suffer
ing from a cold. He will be confined
to his home for a few weeks. The
rural delivery district of Stratford
embraces a territory of 28 miles and
it is the duty of the rural letter car
rier to at least reach all the boxes
once a day. The territory extends
from Putney to Lordsliip Meadows. Of
late many of the town's roads have
been impassable and it Is impossible
during such extreme zero weather
that has just left us to cover any such
district.
Postmaster Bristol has been en
deavoring for the last few days to pro
cure a -man to act as a temporary
mail carrier until Moore's return but
up to the prosent writing has been
unsuccessful. t

floor was flooded. A score of plumb
ers were at work yesterday making
repairs and patching up the bursted
pipes. Supt. C. Claire Thompson of
the public schools said today that the
school would be closed until further
notice. The damage done will be in
the neighborhood of $500.

EARL READING
IS APPOINTED TO
AMBASSADORSHIP
Washington, Jan. 8. Combination
of the three separate functions that
have been exercised by as many dif
ferent agencies, diplomatic financial
and war supply, is the purpose of the
appointment of Earl Reading as Bri
tish ambassador in Washington to suc
ceed Sir Cecil Spring-Rice, as the sit
uation is understood by government
officials here.
Some confusion has followed the In
dependent operations of the North
cliffe'war mission, the technical mili
tary and naval attaches' bureau and
the diplomatic bureaus of the embas
sy proper. It has been found diffr
cult for these separate commissions
and agencies to transact their busi

war and navy departments and the
treasury department here without
over lapping and confusion.
