King George and Queen Mary 'saw how American corn-cakes were
nd8 and also sampled them. Not only that, but they saw how American
flgaters conquer the delicacy. Here you see royalty emerging from their
rst encounter with the favorite American breakfast delight. It would al
most seem they were viewing the Marines and Sailors as though wondering
1 this ia the food on which they grow so husky.
King George missed the best part of the recent pancake treat at Lon
don Eagle Hut he didn't turn 'em personally. Everyone else Is doing it
now, putting an extra edge on their appetites by manipulating the flipper.
The six Y. M. C. A. cake-bakers were on the verge of prostration after
serving 6,124 American soldiers and sailors with pancakes in the first fif
teen days' rush on this pet edible, when a hut secretary had a happy
thought. He induced the pancake fiends not only to bake their own, but
also to demonstrate with the batter and turner for their hungry buddies.
The idea went big, especially as the "Y" retails two man's size cakes with
appropriate maple syrup both for sixpence.
A Tennessee boy made a big hit with King George when the latter
strode into the room where the royalty was assembled.
"They tell me the king is here," remarked the Tennesseean, "and I
want to shake hands with the head of this beautiful country."
The king gave the Tennessee boy a hearty handshake and inquired
as to the state in America from which he came.

The only note of pessimism comes
from those who believe that the new

18 to 45, will so upset business and j

pending bill will delay the event be
yond that date. In any event the end
of September will probably see the
12.000,000 men, who are expected to
register in the new draft, classified. I
understand the government expects
to get about 2,500,000 Class 1 men
irom.this number. This will mean
that millions of families will have to

Lemon drops are so nonnlar in
Army that considerable difficulty has
at the present time, constituting about.
15 per cent of the amount of candy
furnished to the army.
At the beginning of the war it was
found that most of the lemon drops
being manufactured for the commer
cial market were not adaDtable for
use in the army. Most of these lemon
drops were made of glucose and in
ferior and imitation fruit flavors.
The lemon drops now being sun
plied to the Army are made of pure
granulated sugar and are flavored
with an emulsion made from the rind
of the lemon. It is found that an
extra sour lemon drop is the favor-
itew 1th the soldiers. The product
made from the formula used has the
thirst-quenching quality of lemonads.

"A True War Story"
By DOROTHY CANFIELD
miss "La Pharmacienne" in Pictorial
Review for September. It deals with
the heroism of a little French woman, the
wife of a drug-store keeper. When he went
to war the Germans came. What they did
in his village and how his brave wife saved
the whole town makes a remarkable story.
And it's true.
