Then, Just beforo dinner Is announced,

One evening Mr Carnegie "drew"

Desiccated vegetables uro'comlng on
tho market, for use especially by pros
pectors and hunters, who nro obliged
to economize every ounce In tho weight
of the provisions thoy carry. Necessity
compels them to select such foods ns
combine tho maximum of nutriment
with tho minimum of bulk and avoir

tnbles nro especially ndaptcd for tho
purpose. Of lato the War Depaitment

of this kind; it hns found them whole

Whlto potatoes, carrots and sweet
potatoes have been found particularly
available for desiccation. The sweet
potatoes are cut up into llttlo cubes,
while the whlto potntocs nnd carrots
nro sliced. When wanted for use, thoy

cooking them; as sold, they nro sup
posed to bo absolutely wotcr free.
What a saving lu weight nnd bulk thoy
leprescnt will bo realized when It Is
understood that fresh whlto potatoes
contain 80 per cent of wntr nnd fresh
ennots 90 per cent.
Experiments havo proved that tho
drying process causes no loss of nutri
ment and that the product furnishes n
moil valuable addition to tho food of
peoplo who nro un.iblo to get fresh
vegetables. Tho desiccated whlto po
tatoes arc as rich In muscle-forming
element ns tho beat wheat Hour, though
consisting mainly of tho stnrchy ma
terlnl which Is so useful ns fuel for the
body machine. Tho same thing tuny be
said of the carrots nnd sweet potatoes;
hut n notable fact Is that dried eastern
vegetables are richer In starch and
poorer In muscle-forming material
than those grown In Cnllfornlu.

of Sweillih life to strangers Is tho po

one of tho first words learned by the

Is "tnek," tho Swedish term for

At ono tlmo cats woro worshiped In

nro very foil J of thorn nnd would not

I'm-?. a. conquered Egypt, one of his
generals won a battle In tho strangost

The Egyptians dared not attack them
for loar of Injuring tho cats, which'
was forbidden by thtlr rclli-Mon.
Tho effort of tho protectionists to
show that tho tariff does not breed or
alit trusts, because there aro trusts lu
freo trade England, has been disproved
by tho showing mado that nearly oil

been unsuccessful there, nnd ha
cither retired from tho field or
prnctlcnlly bankrupt. Tho reason'
this Is ovident when it la consldol
that the markets of England are 0

world and a trust or monopoly car?
long oxlst where competition is freo
unless It hns some privilege or ndy

tho anthracite coat trust, which Is!
piotcctcd by the tariff, nor docs It
to be, for It has no foreign eompetfi

there being practically no other

which the law of Ohio calls for, is re
ported to have shown nn apparent at

make the following bttnglug remarks
to the board;
"Tho big coiporatlons get all tho
benefits of tho present methods of
assessments. How? Ily lnllucnclng
auditors, by Influencing legislators, by
lnllucnclng courts, nnd by Influencing
"lections. Let us take oft tho mask and
ho frank with ench other. I say that
no nudttor or other ofllclal who has a
railroad pass In his pocket or accepts
other favors from thess coiporatlons
Is a fit man to say how much of tho
tax burden they Bhnll pay. Some men
may bo abovo the Influences, but I
doubt It. Why, gentlemen, this busi
ness of extending favors to public of
ficials hns even gone so far as to ex
tend to your august bady. Two of
you accepted an Invitation of a cortaln
railroad olllclal to tako n long trip In
a privato car to California. I hope It
did not Influence you."
Tho board was dumb under this ac
cusation. Not a word of responBo or
explanation enmo from thorn.

A well that furnishes two soparati

phis. The two streams cmcrgo from
pipes of different lengths, the one
which taps the Lake Michigan stratum
having the greater depth. Lyons Is sit
uated In a part ot the country where
good drinking water lu nil seasons Is
difficult to obtain, nnd recently when
Memphis parties proposed to sink nn
artesian well the suggestion was scout
ed by the residents of tho town. The
discovery of tho two streams, ono a
pure, clear, soft freestone and the
other a strong, sweet, chalybeate iron
