The answer is that the stones are nbt made Into masks, but are trans formed Into charcoal that Is used In the masks. The American Chemical society In a bulletin explains the matter in this way: "Peach stones are used as the raw material for making the best grade of absorbent charcoal ever produced ; and the charcoal is used In the respirator for absorbing 'the deadly gases in the Inspired air. "How does charcoal act? In the first place, it is exceedingly porous. It is produced, by roasting wood, dried blood, or other organic material, and this roasting decomposes the material into two parts, one of them gaseous, which passes off from the retorts, and one of them solid, which remains behind as charcoal. Every minute cell of the wood and every part of a cell gives up some of the gas during the operation and thus leaves minute pores all through the material. Thus the wood charcoal that we know is very bulky for its weight and contains innumerable fine pores. Now this highly porous charcoal has a remarkable property of absorbing certain kinds of substances. "In the gas mask contaminated air passes through a layer of highly active carbon before it reaches the mouth, and the poisonous material Is absorbed. It is apparent that tie more active the charcoal Is, the more the absorbing power can be packed into the small box on the front of the mask. Now, all charcoal from all sources 1 not equally active. Hence, before char coal was used successfully in masks a very active form had to be produced. And it was found that the bard, dense, compact substance of nut shells and fruit stones formed the most con densed and actively absorbing char coal. The pores of the charred material are infinitely fine and numerous attd hence a given volume of the carbon will do far more work than the same volume of other kinds of charcoal." Words of Wise Men.

Montana Farmers Are Badly In Need of Water on Land. - "Water on our hinds during 1917 and 1918 would 'nave meant thousands of dollars to this country, to the farmers, and to the city people," the ex-, ecutlve committeeman In charge of Irrigation in the Flathead county farm bureau, Montana, writes. The Flathead county farm bureau Is determined that the drought conditions of the present season shall not be repeated and has made irrigation one of its major lines of work for the year. Dif ferent localities will handle the problem In different ways. Irrigation in this valley will make it possible for the farmers to change from straight grain farming to the practice of a diversified system employing live stock as well as the necessary crops. FOR THE POULTRY - GROWER The air In a tightly closed butlduu soon becomes laden with lmpurttle from the breath of the fowls and from the filth that accumulates. To breathe this air over and over again is to take back Into the system many of the Impurities that the system Is trying to throw off. 'As the oxygen of the air becomes exhausted it can give less and less heating elements to the body of the fowl and gradually the fowl's power of resistance to cold Is reduced. Unless there Is sufficient ventilation to keep the air reasonably pure tba house becomes damp and -In time moisture collects on the walls, which in cold weather turns to frost. Thes are some of the reasons why sufficient ventilation should be provided at all times and why the hen houses should not be closed tightly at the approach of cold weather. Drafts, however, must not be allowed to blow on th fowls, particularly when they are on the roosts at night. ' pld Boots and Shoes Used To Make, Useful Articles. The old boots and shoes that are cast Into the dustbin have consider able value. They are soaked in watei to remove the dirt, all the nails and threads are picked out, and the leather is reduced to a thick pulp, from which wall papers; screens, etc., arc made. The finer the original qualltj of leather the better It takes th bronze and old gold of the deslgni which make these hangings things ol beauty. Bookbinders and framemak-era also know the value of this pulp and carriage builders press it int sheets which are, invaluable for tlx roofs of the most luxurious vehicles. Great Demand in Vienna for' Watchdogs and Prices Have Been Raised in Proportion. The Increasing insecurity of life and property in Vienna has brought about a great demand for good watchdogs, according to the following interview with an official of the Vienna Animal hospital, printed in a recent Issue of the Neues Wiener Journal: "It Is a fact that persons frequently come here early In the morning seeking dogs before our office hours begin. Most of them are wives of business men, foremen, professional men and others, who have. been called to the colors, but there are also women who have learned that we have nice dogs for distribution and, consequently, come looking for these faithful and trustworthy guardians, especially in view of the wholesale robberies and the sinister activities of numerous gangs of youthful thieves. As you know, a close watch has to be kept over the power belts in the factories to prevent their disappearance, as is also the case with lumber In the yards, and all kinds of goods in the stores and warehouses. "Many women, whose husbands are at the front, are afraid to stay alone and wish at least to have a watchful animal with them to give warning of the presence of strangers at the door, through growling or barking. So the dog has become a much desired animal. People willingly pay the $4 tax and don't seem to worry about the problem of supplying the dog with food If they can thus get a keen-eared end loyal guardian. Such dogs are very dear now. A 'Doberman costs from $90 to $200 ; shepherds, up to $120; coachdogs, up to $40; fox terriers, from $15 to $20, and pure-blood 'Dackel,' from $12 to $20. Greyhounds and poodles, on the other hand, have gone out of style." When the first cold weather of the season comes there Is a temptation to close the poultry houses quite tightly in the belief that the fowls confined in them need that protection from the increasing cold. It is true that the fowls must be protected, but If they receive so much protection that fresh air Is kept out of the house they will suffer more from breathing bad air than they would from a little lower temperature. Boy Scouts Locate Walnut At the President's Request. About 15,000,000 feet of black walnut timber has been located and its exist enee reported to the forest service bs the boy scouts since they were called upon by the president to assist th government In locating this timber foi gunstock and propeller material. Thi boy scouts send the reports to the for est service, where the information Is compiled and then forwarded to thu war department. The government it self is not buying the walnut, bu sends out the information to manufac turers working on government con tracts. City Built on Islands.

Camouflaging Mutilated Faces Wonderful Work Being Done to Hide Hideous and Shattered Features the Surgeons Cannot Help "Camouflage of Mercy" is the term by which many describe the work being carried on by Anna C. Ladd, the sculptor, under the auspices of the American Red Cross. It is a wonderful work for soldiers whose faces have been hideously mutilated by German of the mutile's face, and then from pre-war' photographs, or - descriptions furnished by friends, builds up in clay or plaster the missing parts until the cast is a good likeness of the man as he was. From this cast a thin copper mask is made and then plnted with silver. This is fitted perfectly and the camouflage is held in place by a pair of spectacles. The final stijge is to paint the mask so that It is practically indistinguishable. ' . In the accompanying Illustration it will be noted that the mutilation has not been so general and the pair of spectacles with eyes painted in disks behind the glasses serve to change this Whale Meat Has Been Used In Japan for Many Years. For hundreds of years whale meat has been used for food in Japan. In the earliest books of Japanese history, there are accounts of the capture of whales, with nets, and the ceremonies which followed a successful haul. Nowadays the whale fisheries are conducted on an elaborate scale with modern fleets and expensive equipment provided by the government. Whale meat looks and tastes like beef. People's Home Journal.

Mrs. Ladd is shown working on a mask for a soldier whose face was mutilated in the war, his bravery having cost him his eyesight. shells. Mrs. Ladd is the wife of Dr. Maynnrd Ladd, medical adviser of the American Red Cross, but her work has nothing to do with medicine. In many hospitals, of course, plastic surgery Is doing much to build up shat tered faces. Mrs. Ladd, however, finds her subjects among those whom the surgeons cannot help. They, are soldiers whose faces have been so shot to pieces that they present a hideous spectacle, one which their friends and relatives prepare to shun. The sufferers realize this and become very unhappy and sensitive and are inclined to hide themselves away from their fellow-beings. Mrs. Ladd has become greatly interested in the work of Captain Derveut, who improved on the gelatine and rubber formerly used, and made meal masks. To make these masks, Mrs. Ladd takes a plaster cast Irish Stew. Cut two pounds of meat In small pieces; fry one sliced onion In a little fat; when brown add the meat and brown that; then add boiling water and seasonings desired.
