A STANDARD LOAF.
The city of Cleveland has adopted 1
an ordinance requiring that after Oct.
14 dealers may sell bread only in
standard loaves of 16 or 32 ounces. (
There is no attempt to regulate the
price. The city council took it for
granted that if the people knew pre-;
clsely how much bread they were j
getting in a loaf, they would do some
rather effective price-regulating them
selves. At present, consumers are
handicapped by not knowing what a
"loaf" is. The meaning of the term
varies with the baker and the dealer.
Establishing a definite, standard loaf
is the logical beginning of bread re- (

THE CENTENARY OF A SONG.
Scltuate, Mass., recently witnessed
an Interesting centenary. It was the
one hundredth anniversary of "The
Old Oaken Bucket." Not of the ven
erable bucket itself that fell to
pieces long agobut of, the writing of
the words by Samuel Woodworth at
his home in New York.
According to the story, the poem
was written at the iclose of a hot day
after the author, who was then work
ing on a newspaper in New York;
had come home hot and tired. His
wifo drew a pitcher of cool water
from the pump in the yard that was
in the New York of a hundred years
ago and placed it on the table near
him.
It good. But not so good as the water
ho had been wont to drink from the
"old oaken bucket" at his boyhood
home In Scltuate.
Lydia Woodworth, the wife, had
had a hot day, too. She found the
thought of the old well'and the brim
ming bucket very pleasant refresh
ment for the imagination. "Wouldn't
that make a pretty subject for a poem,
Samuel?" It would. Samuel wrote
the poem. America has been singing
the words ever since. There have
been parodies on it and jokes about
it. Rut the fact remains that (he ap
peal is there and that the song has
been and is sung and loved by mil
lions of Americans.
The traveler who would drink at
that ancient well today must drink
from a new bucket standing beside a
"restored" well curb. And there is
but one tree left of the old apple orch
ard near by. But the song Is still
young.

MUSIC FOR ARMY AND NAVY.
With a song leader at every train

neatly hound In olive drab linen in '

why Uncle Sam's lighting men should ,

musical ability as well as In their,
other well known attributes.
The standardized song book to bo'
