It was hard to realize, . He turned to the west, where for so long behind toe mountains bad-lurked an enemy. A new era was opening; peace, disarmament, a quiet and prosperous land. He had spent his years of war and women- Tbut was over. When he returned to the study the agent Kaiser was already there. But Karl, big with plans for^the future, would have been alone, and eyed the agent jwlth disfavor. "Tvell?' he demanded.

In deference to the anniversary, the flowers were tied with a black ribbon. . Annuadata giiumbled when she suw the crowd, and the occupants of the first car looked them over carefully.

These foods are wheat, beef, pork, butter and sugar. Our Solution Is to eal. less of those and as Httle of all foods as will ·upport health and 3trenjd.h. AT! saving counts 'for victory. The Food Administration asks every loyal American to help win the war 'by malat»inlnj rigidly,, as a m i n i m u m of laving, the following program: ' . ' Hare TWO WHEATLHS3 DAYS (Monday and Wednesday) ' every week, and ONE WHEATLEBS M E A L in every day. Explanation -- On ^'"WheataeaB" days and in "Whcatlosa" meals of other days use no crackers, pastry, macaroni, 'breakfast food or other cereal food containing wheat, and use no wheat flour in any form except the small amount that may be needed for 'thickening soups or graries, or for a binder in corn bread and other cereal breads. As to bread, If yon bake ft at home, use other cereals than wheat, and If you bn;p, it, buy only war bread. Our object is, that w3 should buy and consume one-third less wheat products than we did laat year. * Have ONE MEATLESH DAY (Tuesday) In every week and ONE MEATLESS MEAL In every day. Hava TWO PORKLESS DAYS (Tuesday and Saturday) in every week. Explanation -- "M«iat3oss" means without any cattle, hog or sheep products. ,. On other days use mutton and lamb in preference to besC or pork. "Porkless"' means without pork, bacon, ham, lard or porlc products, fresh or prepared. Use ftah, poultry and eggs. As a nation we eat and waste nearly twice as ranch meat as we need. Miike every day a PAT-SAV|NG DAY (Butter, lard, lard-sub a titutes, etc.) Explanation -- Fry iless; bake, broil, boll or stew foods instead. "Sdvp. meat drippings: t]3e"~these and vepetable oils for cooking Instead of bvitter. Butter hag food values vital to children; therefore. give It to them, UB« It only, on the table. Waste no soam; It H made from fat Be careful of all fata. "We use and wast* two and ft half times as much fat as we need. Make every- day a SUGARSAVING DAY. Explanation -- Use leas sugar. Less sweet drinks and candy containing suffar should be used in war time. As a nation we nay* used twice as much siugar as ive need, Use FRUITS, VEGE^BLES and POTATOES abundantly. . Explanation -- These foods are healthful and plentiful, and, at th» same time. ^partly take the place of other foods which we must oare. Raise all yon can for home nae. Use M I L K wisely. Explanation -- XTse all of th« milk; wnste no part of It. The children must havp whole milk. Use sour and skim milk in cooking and for cottage cheese. H O A R D I N G FOOD. Any one buying and holding a larger supply of food now than In peace time, except fooda canned, dried or preserved In the home.

T'ie food hoarder Is working against the j common good and fcren against the very safety of the -'country.

Hedwig nnfl the countess went with the party around the fortifications. The archduchess and Miss Braithwaite 'had sought a flre. Only the conntess, however seemed really interested.

Before bim n»e ' -- - · - . . . - . - - . 1 a vision of Hedwig,'her color that rose and fell, since the beginning of the war, while at the same time, the shortage · of shipping has grown more and more serious, with the conseqeunt, steady increase of difficulties In bringing food from tlie faraway markets of India, Australia and the Argentine. The situation has become 1 critical. There is simply not enough food In Europe, yet tbe soldiers of the Allies must be maintained In full strength; their wives and children at home must not face famine; : the friendly neutrals must not be starved; and, finally, our own army In Prance must never lack a needee ounce of food. There is just one way in which all these requirements can be met North America must furnlith the food. And we must furnish it from our savings because we ,have already sent our normal surplus. We do not need to starve our own people. We have plenty for ourselves, and it is tbe arm policy of the Food Administration to retain for our'^-people, by its control of exports, a sufficient suppdy of e-very essential foodstuff. We want nobody in our country to eat less than Is necessary for good health and full strength for America needs the full productive power of all Its people. Much of toe needed saving .can be effected by substituting one kind of food for another. But the time has come to put aside all selfishness and disloyalty. · The time has come for sacrifice. The Allies ask' us to moet 'only their absolutely Imperative needs. They are restricting the consumption of their own people to the minimum necec- aary for health and strength. They are controlling their food by drastic government regulation. There is even actual privation among-thelr women and children; there Is starvation in Belgium. ' · The Allies need wheat and meat ana fats and BUEar. They mnst hare mor» .of aill of these than we hsvn been sending, more than we shall bu able to send unless -- ---··-· - - . _ _ . . . -for as a we need. The whole great problem of winning the war rests primarily on one thing: the loyalty and sacrifice of the American people-In the matter of food. Ft Is not a -government responsibility, it IK the responsibility ot each. Individual. Bach po.imd of rood, saved by each American citizen Is a pound given to the support of our army, the Aillies and the friendly neutrals. Each poimrt wasted or eat.en unupccsnarny is a pound withheld from them. It la a direct personal obligation on the part of each of ns to some one to Europe whom we are bound to help. - If w« are selflnh or everi oarelesE. we are disloyal, we are the enemy at home.

Bact In the eiirly eighties, when American sportsmen began to demand a between season iratlet for their gunning enthusiasm, some bright genius concelyed the. ld«a of the glass ball as a fitting target to try the prowess-of the marksman, and the object was projected at unknown angles from a mechanical contrivance known us a trap. The name ol Bogardus, in connection with glass-ball shooting^ is not only hlstorlcal.jbut still alive and dominant in the reminiscences of old timers, a goodly percentage o* whom still follow the rrapshootlng sport. Trapshootlng today, however, difffirB materially from that sport of bygone days; the traps are; more scientifically constructed, the' target, in,stend of being globular in' form. Is saucer-shaped, und besides covering its 30-yard flight with the speed'of an arrow, rotates as well. . It has become customary for writers to refer to the clay pigeons as "the inanimate target." So long as they remain packed In barrels or stacked in the traplionse this is quite proper.
