Men, In the piping tlins of peace the prune waa the butt of cheap wlta and the bnne of the boarder. Nov when the acid test of utility and palatabll- Ity la applied the despised prune steps into the preferred class at least on the American army bill of fare. It haa won It way solely on Its own merit. The counts 'In Its favor are food value, tonic value a'nd value aa a confection. It nourishes, stimulates, and delights. j The surgeon general of the army himself testifies to the loyal and help ful support of the once belittled fruit Be baa added his recommendation to the approving report of the subsist ence division. This report tells us that out of the 1017 crop 20,000,000 pounds of prune have been consumed by our fighting men. Based on size fifty-five, which ia the trade designation of the a vera bo prune, the total number con sumed would be 1,100,000,000. Placed aide by side It ia quite possible that this total of prunes wouldn't reach from the American trenches to Berlin, but each prune, no doubt Is doing Its best to help the Yankee fighters cover the distance. There would be a sort of poetical Justice In the circumstance If the cheerful Idiot and the other boarders whose table wit lingered longest about the patient prune could meet It over tlior In Flanders and In Plcardy and find It honored and extolled as the food of fighting men. WAGE WAR ON GRASSHOPPERS California Authorities Devising Ways and Means to Protect Agriculture al Lands From Pest County horticultural commissioners throughout California have been asked to forward Information on the gross- hopper pest reported prevolent In number of districts, particularly In northern California, to George H. Hecke, state bortlnltornl commis sioner. Fragmentary reports received at Ilccke'a office have Indicated that lnrge swarms of gruRxhopperx have liifested agricultural districts In Sut ter, Mpdoc Lassen, Butte and other counties and have caused considerable damage to crops. One of the best methods of exterm ination, nn official ald. Is the spread ing of poisoned bran mash, which the hoppers devour quickly. Burning of the grass also Is an effective means, tut the Ore menu re at this season necessitates the exercise of greatest cnutlon. Uarrowlne, by ivlilch means the PB of the hoppers are brought to the snrfoce to be eaten by ants or other Insects and flooding the ground also are advocated to prevent batching. The enforcement of laws for the curbing of pests la vested In the coun ty horticultural commissioners, but In enses where the menace to crops extensive the state commission co-operates in a concerted campaign of ex termination, as was done this spring when the state-wide rodent drive waa conducted. Cyclist In Spectacular Feat An army motorcyclist at one of the training camps recently averted the death of a young lieutenant by a most extraordinary feat of heroism, says ropulnr Mechanics Magazine. Racing ut high speed across rough ground, he drove his machine into a runaway parachute that wus dragging the offi cer to bis death. The lutter had made a practice parachute Jump of 2,000 feet from an observation balloon. high wind had carried him a consider able distance, and In landing he be came hopelessly entangled in the cord- nge. The parachute was caught by a strong air current and blown ut terrific speed acress the field, pulling Its help less prisoner with It At the same in stnnt the cyclist passing along a near by motor mad, saw the officer's plight He swerved his machine Into the field and raced at top speed squarely into the middle of the bellied parachute. The ropes fouled the machine and the weight of the latter anchored the dere lict against further movement. War Gaa Causes Appendicitis. The various poison gases so much in use at present at the European battle zone are not only breathed, but are swallowed. This might seem strange nt first, but the likelihood of swallowing some amount of a gas Im pregnating the atmosphere mny readily be seeu. This might take place inci dental to the Intake of food and both to normal and convulsive actions of the throat. Such swallowing of toxic vapors causes a variety of dlges(Ional disturbances, according to the amount of gas ingested. According to an article In the Jour nal de Medeclne et de Chlrurgle Pratique, appendicitis has been found caused by swallowed gnu., especially when the gas' contains chlorine. The progress of the malady was rapid, but rather mild, and treatment was effec tive,'., . '.. Destructive Grasshopper. Nowendoc.N. S.
