DOES IT PAY TO WORRY ABOUT APPENDICITIS? Can appendicitis be guarded against? Yes, by preventing Jntestlnal Infec tion. The intestinal antiseptic, Adler 1-ka, acts on BOTH upper and lower bowel, removing ALL foul, decaying matter which might start infection. EXCELLENT for gas on stomach or chronic constipation. It removes mat ter which you never thought was in your system and which nothing else can dislodge. One man reports it is unbelievable the awful Impurities Ad ler-l-ka brought out.

MOULTON 4 SM’BMMBBftt-MR* l . \ tvut-n i n. mL/ss *- ■ viw F YOU should ask a hun > dred experienced hunters, I men who have followed I the field for many years 1 and fired their shotguns i| times without number, ap- I proximately how many pel -9 lets there are in an ounce I of No. 6 chilled shot —the size general ly us**d In the hunting of ducks, rab bits, squirrels and similar game —the chances are that a good many of them could not come anywhere near the cor rect number. It is also probable that few of them could tell you exactly bow the shot Is made. The manufacture of shot is, be Lt known, a most interesting and Ingeni ous process. In every plant where shot Is made there .is one building which stands out above all others. This is the so-called "Shot-tower," which rises to a height of about two hundred feet, and in this tower the op erations employed in making shot be gin. The capacity of the shot-tower in a large modern plant is fifty tons of shot a day, all of which Is made, un touched by human hands, after the bars of lead are put Into the great melting cauldron on the topmost fioor of the tower. The lead bars weigh approximately one hundred pounds each and are about two feet long. They are put into the cauldron as needed and melted by gas neat. Exceptional pains are taken in man ufacturing shot. Every size of chilled shot has a differentfformulaa —a fact which it seems difficult for the ordi nary man to understand. It requires 223 pellets to make an ounce of No. 6 shot, or 8,558 to the pound. In the case of No. 7% shot, the kind used In trap shooting and for quail, grouse and other birds of this type, 5,520 pellets are required to make a pound. At this rate It would take over eleven mil lion pellets to make a ton of No. 7H shot, and about half a billion would represent a day’s output. In one of the largest and oldest mu nition manufacturing plants of New England the top of the shot tower is 187 feet above the ground. On the top floor is the huge cauldron in which the lead bars ore melted. The heat in this cauldron Is terrific and the bars dissolve almost as quickly as a pound of lard dumped Into a deep frying pan already partly filled with the boiling fat. It Is possible to melt one hun dred tons of lead a day in this caul dron, which means that one hundred tons of shot can be turned out flally in an emergency. From the cauldron the molten metal flows In a continuous stream, like so much silver water. Into a sieve, while a workman standing by stirs It con- "Oddest Couple I Know" “My cousin, Dan Broadhead, and hla wife are the oddest couple I ever knew,” asserted Hostetter Smith, “and yet they appear to enjoy themselves more than anybody else of my ac quaintance, They buy nothing mere ly because somebody else has It, but only when they want It themselves. "They do not permit anyone to se lect their books, plays or m.ualc for them. Tb*y own up that they know tlnuously. From the sieve the hot metal drops Into tanks of water 154 feet below, the pellets being formed Just after passing through the sieve. Exactly how long it takes to chill the shot after the metal leaves the sieve Is still a mystery, but It is known that when the pellets reach the water, which cannot take more than a frac tion of a second, they have become solid Spheres of remarkable roundness. Special sieves with varying sizes of perforation must be used for each in dividual size of shot The size of shot, however, may be regulated slightly by change In temperature of the molten metal. From the tanks of water the shot passes through a drying machine, and thence to conveyors which take It up several stories in the shot tower. Next they go to a big revolving screen where any rough bits of lead that may be mixed up with the pellets are culled out. Leaving this screen the shot go to a series of glass assorting tables, where the perfect pellets are automat ically selected, those having the slight est Imperfections being discarded. The shot flows from a hopper onto the glass tables, which are very slightly in clined, and the perfect pellets gather sufficient momentum to roll down the table and Jump a gap at the base, while those pellets which are not round enough to gather the required momentum fall to Jump the gap and pass into the scrap. Every pellet passes over a series of a dozen of the glass tables, placed one above the other, and only those of perfect form can survive the elimination tests. Any imperfection whatever, such as rough edges, slows up the rolling pellet so that it drops into one of the gaps and goes back to the melting pot to be made over again. In addition to all tills, samples from each tank of shot are later tested for roundness and appearance by rolling the pellets over a glass plate set* at an angle of about one-half of one de gree. From the last of the glass tables the shot go into big revolving drums with screens where the pellets are sorted Into the various sizes. Each size of shot goes through its proper opening in the screens. The revolving drums are equipped with rollers on their outside surfaces, the function of the rollers being to prevent the shot from sticking in the holes In the screens.

After the pellets are sorted, they go through polishing machines, the oper ation of polishing being accomplished by tumbling them in a long metal cyl* Inder. Next the shot goes into great storage tanks. There are sixty-two of these tanks on the ground floor of the plant In question, each bolding nine and a half tons of shot. The shot Is weighed into the storage tanks by automatic weighers, and like wise weighed out again In lots of twen ty-five pounds, although the machines In the weighing process can be adjust ed to; weigh any amount of shot. The shot Is prepared for shipment In bags. For instance, if five pounds is desired, this amount runs Into a bag, the bag automatically moves Into position to a sewing machine several Inches to one side of the weighing device, where it Is mechanically sewed up and is then ready for the market Before shot is shipped out, however, each lot Is tested for hardness. This quality is determined by compression with a two-ounce weight which falls a distance of 24 Inches. A pellet li placed In a jig under a plunger and the two-ounce weight hits the end ol the plunger, compressing the pellet There is a definite standard of com pression for each individual size of shot The diameter of the pellets be fore and after compression is deter mined by a platform micrometer. His Love on Commercial Basis. I w’as seven and Harry was ten. Each morning he called for me and we went to school together. I was very much in love with him and be seemed fond of me. One morning he said to my mother, “You owe me a dime.” My mother said, “What for?” Harry said, “Ain’t I been taking her to school every morning? I think 1 ought to get something for it” Mother gave him the dime, but my love for him ended right there.—-Ex change. couple, most any way yon look at them, which I suppose Is the reason they have so much fun.”-—Kansas City Star.
