L t Probably ehowers tonight and Sun: day. h-' - have - givei all Americans cause to hope that the waif may soon end, we must all know that the end is not yetnor, perhaps j soon. While the German atmies have met with what appears td be a j crushing defeat, it does not mean that' the Kaiser and his Huns hav4 yet been brought to their knees. They are still able to put up a stiff resistance,; although it is hard ly to be! thought; that they will ever again, be able to take the offensive at least hot on any such large scale as in the past.. uut tney are noi yi beaten There must yet be much and hard fighting, and months of contin uous battling. Not until the Germans are driven back across the Rhine into their owW territory' will they be given the final! blow that will crush their 3 I military spirit. : Capt- Jt M. de Beaufort, late of the Belgian army, now in the United States! believes that it will take until 1921 to thoroughly conquer Germany and that between 4,000,000 and 5,000, 000 American soldiers will be requir ed to finish the job. "It is a mistake,' says the! captain, "to say that. Ger many can be starved j out, or tha there! will be internal revolution in that country to put a stop to the war." The only way, he says, that Germany! yfill be: beaten is by crushing her armed lorces, -ana mis, ne De-lieves, will require at least three years more :of fighting. It is jbecoming more v and more ap parent that the "alues have reason to be. more .fearful of German probagan da than they how have of German armsj and America and the American people J Should pay especial heed to this. 1 The . overthrow of Russia was not the achievement of German arms, permanj propaganda, and the NICHOLAS ROMANOFF, COWARD. Nicholas Romanoff, former Russian emperor, given two hours in which to' prepare for the end, was taken out by his executioners in such a state of collapse that it was necessary to prop him against a post to await his death. says a recent dispatch, from Amsterdam. Truly, an ignoble end for the last ot the - mighty' Romanoffs, a weakling, who had not nerve enough to face the death which he and his had often so lightly inflicted on others. He was harmless, it was admitted by many of the better element in Rus sia, some of whom have protested at his summary execution. j There was little excuse for. putting him to death, even considering all the circumstances. True, there were always rumors that certain forces were combining to-reinstate him, but eren the most ignorant of the. . Bolshevik! were wise ' enough to know that they had. little to fear from that source. But his once despised moujiks, "my moujiks," as 'he called them, his vassals, lower in his estima tion than the horses that had the honor o carry him, were ,m the sada:e, and they had an old, old score to set- !H - . - i ! And when he rod looking ' into Jhelr faces and waiting death. at their bands, what were his thoughts? Did he look back into the history of his benighted country, and see the thousands of these same despised moujiks who had been sent to death, and worse than death, banishment. ', to- Siberia, for th most trifling infringements of tyrannical laws? Laws I which were formulated with the intention of crushing the soul out of these men, and making of them mere beasts of bur den? They were denied the right to learn, even the right to think, and those who dared to think paid the same penalty as that recently given Nicholas Romanoff. Did the former czar at last realize that these were human beings, and that in their dark; ened minds thoughts were springing up? Did he stop to think that the awful chaos, fruit was his own destruction, was tffe direct result of his own methods, and those of his blood arrogant, cruel slave masters that they' were? We shall never know his thoughts, perhaps, not even when the book of less deeply and scraping, and the at tached glumes the hull-like attachments at the tips of -the grains are easily separated when the corn becomes dry.

The grain should i be thoroughly stirred several times! to separate any compact masses. If corn is dried in the sun. it should I be finished by pouring into breadpans. i warming t'o 160 to 165 degrees for; two hours, with frequent stirring, ae it is practically impossible to bring corn to a sufficient degree of dryness by the unaided heat'of the sun. Drying should in every case be con tinued untilthe grains are hard, semi-transparent, and break to bits with a clean, -glasslike fracture , when it . Is crushed. " : . When corn ha been brought to this degree of-1 dr.yness. it may be perma nently stored at once, preferably in closely woven muslin bags or heavy paper bags, tied tightly at the neckj and placed within a larger muslin bag which is in turn tightly tied.

Corn intended for drying, should be gathered when in .the "milk stage" when all the contents of a grain can be pressed out" as a semi-liquid mass by crushing with, the thumbnail before the hardening .and glazing of the grams hasset- irt. Corn which is either too immature or too old to be ideal for -immediate table use will not make a strictly first-class product. It snouid te gatnered only as rapidly as it can be prepared -for drying; the practically universal rule in canneries the lichter narticles. Since corn is a product which ;is quite high both in sugar and in pro- tein. it is quite1 subject to the attacks of bacteria if the drying process is allowed to stop while there is still a considerable percentage of water present. Consequently, if sun drying is interrupted by cloudy weather: or showers, while the corn still has much water., drying should be continued over the stove or in the oven or the product may spoil. . ' Ordinary white field corn, if gath ered when in ideal roasting ear stage and treated by the method here described, makes a dry product which is or course much lower m sugar con tent than is sweet corn, but which is by no means to be despised. ANTIPODES TO THE FRONT.-. (By United Press.) Melbourne, Aug. 3 Australia has contributed ten per cent of her popula tion for the allied firing line. Dried foods are not ready to be placed in permanent containers as they come from the drier; they must undergo a preliminary conditioning or after-drying treatment No matter how dry and crisp the surfaces of the pieces may feel to the touch, there is a conBldable- percentage of moisture prerent.-in tne interior, ir such ma terial were at once placed in contain ers, the moisture present in each piece of material would gradually distribute itself equally throughout the piece, while; the air within the can would become almost saturated with moisture, and spoilage would soon be gin the light.
