The next thing that most be done In the war of world efficiency Is to get rta of a lot'of languages ttat are float- Ing around to the restraint of trade. · It /will be the most difficult feat of all, bnt it must be done, Just tn« same. This thing of every bunch of .people across a river or "over a mountain sneaking » different language from their, near neighbors Is the biggest handicap toe world has to contend with "today, asserts a writer la tie Los Angeles Times Mai,tsiine. Moreover, this snrptus of languages Is the one thing, above all others, that has caused misunderstandings, wars, strategies, spoils, hell-raising, and hatreds generally. The Mggest bar against the friendly relation of one people with another has been the difference in their mode of hnmn speech. It started with the · building of the Tower of Eabel when .the Lord confnsed the people on purpose bacanse of their wickedness, and he toot the best way possible to ac- corapttih the result of the divine will. Butnow that God's people have been nrnkug a fairly good stab nt getting right with him again--all of us, and our.fithers before'us for.centuries--it la reasonable to suppose that God will let 'n» ditch that Tower of Babel stuff If we make a renl good honefet try at It. Alerica itself--the melting pot of nations--is a striking proof - that the thljir can be done. Here hare they ' eoftb from evev land and all the seven se^, the children ; of .all races, speak-. Inf every tongue known to man, and beiwe they know It thej are all speak- Injgood United States. - hen, why not start a serious move- mnt to get the whole world, here and elewhere, speaking United States--or ^gllsh, if that's a better way to say If It won't be easy, btrt it certainly can b done. And when It is done, this will b a happier, a more peaceful, and a rore prosperous earth on which to Ve. - .

With the daytime dress which has come to be u part of every woman's wardrobe, oxfords of dark brown leather are considered smart. . They have low heels and are worn with dark brown stock- i ngs. Patent leather oxfords were seen with a velvet afternoon frock. Spats with pumps are worn by many women, and there are a few brown shoes with lighter suede tops. For evening, slippers made of cloth of silver or gold were more generally worn than anything else.

The vines are set out in rows ten feet apart. During the spring and summer they are carefully cultivated and sprayed with snlphnte of copper to destroy Insects. Thii srnpes begin to ripen about the first of August Laborers wi th large fiat baskets or trays gatbet the fruit. It Is not all cot oat at one time, font the field is gone over periodically and only the ripe clusters are cut from the vine with scissors. The raisins produced" near Malaga nre not treated with sulphur, lye, or oil, as is the practice In other parts of 'Spain. In-or near the grape field there Is thrown up an earth terrace Inclined toward the setting sun. This Is divided Into sections about ten yards long: and twelve yards wide, around whtch a low brick or stone wall is built, to protect the raisins nnd to support the crtnvas stretched over them at night or during inclement weather. The object of this slanting surface Is to keep the sim constantly shining upon It, The bottoms of the drying beds nre covered with 1 flne gravel to retain the heat Immediately after being gathered, the grapes are spread out on the beds for exposure- to the burning sun. At nightfall the ralslna are covered with canvas to protect the fruit from the heavy dew, and, as stated, the canvas Is also spread over them in the event of rain. There Is rarely any roln in this section during May, June, July, August anfl September. During the process of drying the grapes that re- mnin green or become spoiled are carefully removed, and the clusters are turned from Unie to time la order thut they may color uniformly. The drying process takes about three weeks, so that the first raising of the season nrn ready for pricking about the .end of August. . Heaviest shipments go forward in September. Before packing the raisins nre sorted and graded. After small nnd imperfect raisins nave been cut off the clusters are laid In boxes lined with white pnper and containing iiaunll.r 22 or 25 pounds of fruit.

The boips of raisins are then brought to Malnga by the growers for disposal to the shippers and dealers. The prices realized vary considerably according to the quality nt the fruit nnd the quantity of the crop, also according tO'the condition o( the industry in the obier countries where raising arc produced and the general demand in the world Ing and similar operations,'writes Con- dler, I t ' I s saved wealth to the man snl General Alfred I,. M. Bottschalk, Kio de Janeiro. The development has been going on slowly and almost Imperceptibly for several years. Some ranch owners at their own expense have Imported various types of cattle and experimented Individually with crossbreeding. Work in this direction also has been done by the National Society of Agriculture In Hio de Ia- aeiro, seconded by state cattle associations aad ranchmen's leagues. Recently a commlslon appointed by tb* president of Brazil for the study and conservation of th? national re- soorcea has been »t worK on a censns of live stock, taken from the reports of municipalities. at home and can be loaned to his government nt Interest' with resulting benefit to himself and to his government. Utilized Artificial Flood. By r means of an artificial rise, started on October 18, 1!17, at Dam No. 7, Ohio river, and augmented by water from the Huskingum, Kanawha and Big Sandy rivers, more than 80,000 tons of coal from the Kanawha river were delivered to Cincinnati and other river cities, says a bulletin of the department of commerce. Every available tngboat and bnrge was used In this movement, even the small harbor boat of one of the coal companies being utilized to.bring down four coal boats, anil a snowboat pusher was chartered . . , .

A patriot Is a noble thing, but isn't It better to he one than to trim one? The hotel keepers of Manhattan are playing both sides of the game'and the food administration' famishes a Jazz band of statistical admiration for their efforts. These bonlfaces who are shrinking the meals nad swelling the prices need something all right, but not governmental encouragement. Meanwhile the hotel user can feel sure that the wnr ha* not changed his function nt all--he's the paying goat now Just as he used to be. HOLD WOOL m THIS COUNTRY CoEta Rica's Coffee Exports. Official statistics of Costa Hicu's coffee exports for the post season show shipments totaling 27,{H4.5."0 pounds gross--10.089,630 pounds less than during 1015-16. Of Beneflclado or full milled coffee 24.710;135 pounds were exported, and 2.295.415 pounds o£ the Pergumtno (parchment) grade, these quantities being respectively 91.51 per cent and 8.-KI per cent of the total. The United States took 53.10 per cent of the shipments, the United Kingdom -10.14 per cent, and Panama the bulk of tho remainder. Some coffee was sent to France, Italy, Spain and Chile. The province of San Jose supplied 48.34 per cent of the exports, Heredla 16.32 per cent, Cnrtago 1.3.22 per cent, nnd Alajuela 12.9S per cent. The estimated value of the coffee exported was 3,128,480 colones, (At normal exchange tlie colon Is worth ?0.4Sf.T; exchange now fluctuating.) The 1917-18 crop Is placed at 30,000,000 pounds, but the Benson is not far enough advanced to make any definite estimate.

In the interest of the public it serves, the Franklin Sugar Refining Company is earnestly supporting the Government's policy to regulate the supply of sugar so that it shall be sufficient for the needs of all--our soldiers, our Allies and ourselves. With the new crop of cane sugar coming in, the sugar situation is more favorable than it was a month ago. There will be sugar enough, according to present indications, if extravagant use and waste are avoided. War has disturbed the ·whole world's sugar sujjply. It has not only wiped out any available surplus, but it has put all nations on a hand-to- mouth basis. The European Allies were the first to feel the pinch. Before the war, enough sugar was produced on the Continent to supply all Europe. Today, two-thirds of this sugar-producing area is within the battle lines. ^England, France and other nations have had to turn elsewhere for a supply of this indispensable food. And they came to Cuba-the main source upon which the United States depends for its cane sugar. During 1917, Cuba sold and shipped to Europe nearly 1,000,000 tons of raw sugar--one-third of its crop. In addition to the normal increase in the consumption of sugar as food in this country, the nation-wide movement to save the fruit crop last season greatly increased its use. But this increased consumption of sugar has been a real factor in combating waste. It enabled the Ameri-- cah housewife to add to the store of the food of the nation at a time when fruits and vegetables were plentiful and cheap. The sugar is not only in the fruit jar, but lit has carriied into the pantries of the country a vast supply of fruit and vegetables which would otherwise have been lost. Sugar itself is not only a food, but it is also the great preserver of other foods. As the demand for sugar g'rew, both here and abroad, Cuba's supply was exhausted last fall. Every available ton in Porto Rico and other cane sugar countries was acquired. But this was not enough, and the shortage c ae. At the same time, an abundance of sugar was and still is lo'cked up in far-away Java, as unavailable as unmined gold--because ships cannot be spared to transport it. Every 5,000-ton ship which can be saved by giving England sugar from Cuba, means the release of a ship which can make three trips and take a total of 3,000 soldiers from the United States to France. If we can save the Allies from taking any Java sugar in 1918, we will release for transport purposes enough ships to carry over to the Western front and supply about 150,000 to 200,000 soldiers. At the same time, we will also be giving the Allies the necessary sugar. Therefore, it is to the interest of the common cause to save ships and send soldiers. The Franklin Sugar Re-fining Company has put forth every possible efiort to keep up the supply of sugar for the United States, even in limited quantities, and to stabilize the price to the consumer. In order to enable thewidest possible distribution of sugar --so that all may have some sugar--we distribute Franklin Cane Sugars in convenient- size packages. These small - unit cartons and cotton bags enable grocers to limit their sales so that waste and hoarding may be prevented. It will be necessary for grocers and consumers to watch carefully their distribution and purchases during the approaching period of readjustment. The refineries are now starting up and sup^ plies of raw sugar coming forward, but it will take weeks, and possibly months, for the return of normal conditions. Housewives can cooperate with this plan by buying these package sugars. In war time and at all times it is our aim to safeguard the interests of the public we serve.
