Food conservation is the cry from coast to eoast. We are warned against wasting even a crumb.

Anderson, from Mrs. William Curry a former club member who is now a resident of Seattle, Washington. Mr. Curry and family made the whole trip overland i'. their car early in the summer. She writes as follows: We passei so near you in Kentucky it was a gieat temptation to stop and see you, but we had so far to go we decided we could not spare the time. As it was, it took us eight weeks and our speedometer registered ex actly 5,000 miles from Palatka to Se attle. Of course we were not going all the time; we stopped ten days in Ken tucky, ten in Chicago and live days in Yellowstone Park, besides the short stops. Our trip was a series of wonderfrl experiences every one so varied, and we went throuirh every degree of mate,, even to getting in the edge of a cyclone, when we had to put the top of the car down and wait under shel ter for the wind to stop . One day on the Dakota prairies it was so windy it seemed as tho' every moment a gust of wind would turn the car over, and now Miss Maggie, this is not a Seattle yarn, but a fact: it was so cold that even Mr. Curry had his head wrapped in a sweater and had to take his glasses off to keep them from being blown away. ii.
