THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. MONDAY. JULY C, 10U.
i! t l ; ? i: ii; r ; . 1 V INSTRUCTION BY CANNING EXPERT H. Benson of Agricultural Department to Come to Illinois. L. HATCH. By MRS. FRED Professor O. H. Benon of the Uni ted States department of agriculture, specialist in charge of garden and canning club, 'will visit Illinola dur ing the third week In July and spread the gospel of his wonderful work of conservation that is developing the lites and bringing out the capabilities of splendid young womanhood in many parts of our country. What the corn club is doing for the boys of Illinois the garden and canning club will do for the girls. The educational department of the IUlnols Federation of Women's clubs has been most fortunate in securing Mr. Denson as instructor in its home gar den and canning schools, to be held at IVKalb normal school, July 13, 14, 15, axd at East high school, Aurora, Jul 16. 17 and 18. . t!r. Benson will tell of the Import ance of home canning and its relation to the food supply and health of the j-eople. :By means of beautifully illustrated lectures various club activities, and individual stories of actual accomplish ments, showing real sympathy with boy and girl life, will speak straight to the heart of everyone. Mr. Benson believes that the boy or girl who has learned to do one thing well is prac tically safe for all time and can be led to the other and greater achievements. I Of surpassing Interest to house keepers will be the demonstrations of cold packed method of home canning of all kinds of fruits, vegetables, greens, "sweet corn (on and off cob), fish, meats, meat juices, etc.,' by the use of homemade canning outfit and four distinct types cf commercial out fits, all of which are portable and avail able for use In the back yard. No "canning compounds" are used. It Is a lamentable fact that many wo men, especially in small towns and rural districts, are using dangerous. Illegal chemical preservatives in their home made canned good. Or. II. W. Wiley, In Good Housekeeping, takes a shot at dangerous canning com pounds and has this to say of a sam ple of a popular brand sent him by some housekeeper: "This compound consists principally of borax with benzoic acid and salt. The chemical preservations first named are deleteri ous to health and should never be used in a food product. No chemical com pound is necessary In canning. The selection of good materials and com- OCEAN LINER WAITS ON BRIDAL PAIR; YOUNG FOLKS JUST COULDNT SEPARATE mw a-k San Francisco, Cal., July 6. '"Time and tide wait for no roan" is out of date. An ocean liner due to ride the tide on the tick of the clock waited here until two young lives could be joined for "better or for worse." The ship was the Royal Mall liner WHIo chra, and she should have cast at 11 avm.; but she didn't because Captain Nelville hadn't the heart to leave with out a young woman last known to him as Miss Alma Maxine Gooding of Pa peete, Tahiti, and her swain. Captain Edward B. Thebaud, of the Philippine constabulary. Miss Gooding, who Is the owner in her own right of two vast Island co- coanut plantations, had been visiting In the city for several months. During her stay here she had become ac quainted with Captain Thebaud. who was In the United States on leave of nHKAns-a Gha n--kn c)i ml n A ..II nn plete sterilization with careful sealing . . . "line Willochra, and was at the dock when Captain Thebaud came to bid her good-bye. They found the parting harder than they had expected. A few minutes be fore the ship was to sail they jumped into a taxlcab and raced for the mar riage license bureau, arriving there at are all that is necessary.' yThis is exactly what Mr. Benson teaches by so simple a method that a child can learn It- The form, color and texture of fruits and vegetables axe preserved. By placing them in the cans in a fresh state volatile oils are retained and fresh dainty flavor is not lost. -Beans need not be left on the vines to become tough, nor carrots and beets to become fibrous and woody; they may be canned when they are sweet, tender and juicy, and saved for the winter table. Windfall apples, thou sands cf bushels of which are wasted tTery year in our state, may be pre served so tii at they will be fully as de lectable as though they came from the corner fruit stand at 5 cents apiece. - It is estimated that 1.500,000 cans of tomatoes were put up last year by members of girls' garden and canning clubs. The average cost to the ciub members of producing and putting up - a- number two can of tomatoes was a trifle less than four cents. The aver age girl with one of the modern, labor-saving devices in home canning can put up about 300 cans a day. '-It Is an interesting story of Miss Virginia Cogell of Hazelhprst. in Co piah county, Mississippi, who canned and preserved her way through Mis sissippi Normal college. Last year six girls paid their way for an entire term of tne Mississippi Normal college from one season's Mrs. Edgar B. Thebaud. 11 o'clock. While they were filling in their application blanks "Cupid" Mun- son was telephoning to Captain Nel- vllle, who. after the situation had been explained to him, agreed to hold his ship for SO minutes. As soon as the license had been is sued the couple ran for the elevator and everybody in the city hall lending a helping hand they were in an incred ibly short time before - Magistrate E. A. Crelghtoru Creighton did not de lay for formalities. Three minutes later the couple was racing In a taxlcab and not meeting any strict pollcemn en route, they were on board the Wll Iochra a faw minutes later. The ship backed out Into the stream as soon as the couple crossed the gangplanbr. When the island heiress arrived In this city last November she announced that she had come here to meet Law ford Ames, a wealthy Englishman, to whom she would be married. She said she had met .Ames In the islands two years previously, while he was on a tour of the world. They kept up correspondence and decided to cele brate their marriage in this city, Where, when and how this romance was wrecked is not known. Tired and sick! How many women have felt that way after a hard day's work? If you use Fels-Naptha Soap for the hard part of your work, you will save your strength; you will have time to do your work thoroughly and still be able to lie down for a rest in the afternoon. Fels Naptha Soap is the summer soap. It is the winter soap, and the every-day-in-the-year soap. It is the soap that does things right in the easiest way. No hot water, no boiling of clothes, nor hard rubbing to get them clean; no grease left on dishes or pans. Use Fels Naptha Soap in cool or lukewarm water: lei it ao ine nara part 01 your worK.

Scores of girls are reaching the short courses by this route. - Many crowded city slums have been greatly benefited by the organization among the children of garden clubs and by teaching them how to raise vegetables. One boy in a back ysrd in a large city cultivated flowers and vegetables that netted him $22 one season. The value of such practical voca tional training to the youth of our land can never be estimated in dol lars and cents. It means teaching our children to do a splendid piece of the world's work; the effectual elimina tion of waste.' There is an esthetic, as well as practical and educational value not to be overlooked. The garden movement will surely cultivate that love of the beautiful in tree and bud and flower, stunted In all too many of us.

The usual number of flres were started in Davenport Saturday as a result of the Fourth of July celebra tion here. Little damage was done by these because of the fact that the fire department was prompt in its arrival at each place. The department re sponded to seven calls, one of these being a false alarm. Most of the ex citement of the day was caused during the forenoon when the awning at one of the stores in the Henley building, Fourth and Brady, caught fire. The fire was started by a firecracker pre sumably thrown from one of the up stairs windows of the building. The department arrived before the blaze could spread beyond the awning, how ever. The first alarm of the day was sounded at 9:45 in the morning when the department was called to the box on Brown street between Eighth and Nlntn streets. This proved to be false, however. At 12:45 the central depart ment was called to 11:06 West Third street, where a roof had taken fire. This had been caused by the throwing of firecrackers thereon. The blaze was extinguished with lltt'e damage to the place. At 3:45 the department re sponded to a call at 206 Mound street, where a fire iad started between the siding and the plaster of the house. The blaze was started when fire crackers were thrown against the house, and it proved a hard one to fight at first, but the firemen put it out with a meagre damage to the place. ! About the same time they were called to Une place on Mound street the de partment responded to a call at 1809 Brady street, where a roof had taken fire when firecrackers were thrown onto It This also waa put out with slight damage to the building. During the forenoon ha Ackerman grocery at Eleventh and Harrison sent In an alarm. Department No. 3 responded and put out the fire with small loss to the building. The department was call ed to 406 West Second street. In the en into a quantity of waste paper and started a Are. This was extinguished with no damage. The department was called to 1033 West Second street, but the alarm proved to be false. Twenty minutes later they were called to 1033 East Fourteenth street, where the roof had caught fire due to a skyrocket. The worst fire of the evening was that at the home of John Gorman, No. 4 Arlington court, where fire had broken out in a closet as a result of sponta neous combustion. A number of books were destroyed, and other furniture was destroyed by the flames, the total loss of which will be' In the neighbor hood of $200. Splendid Remedy For Eczema Also for Salt Rheum Acne.
