It Is pretty plain that the subject Is considered by teachers a more delicate one than they care to tackle. They are very much of the opinion that this Is teaching that should be.glven only In the homes. And there is a prospect that in this matter teachers will have their way. SAFETY FIRST .

Ten representatives of "big busl- nees" in Chicago had a conference of more than an hour on Wednesday with President Wilson. These men are leading members of the Chicago As'ocia- tion of Commerce. They were In Washington to talk over pending trust legislation with the president. It helps wonderfully in clearing the atmosphere to hav« men of this kind meet the president and talk over the nHoation. "Following the meeting of j Wednesday there were statements from j fcoth sides telling of the "cordiality" of th« session. Also it developed at once that some minor changes will be made In the trust bills that are pending. In a word, it appears t h a t the Chicago business men and the president got along in fine style. Thov were face to face and were talking it over with each other. Tt didn't take long to learn that nobody was wearing horns. It seems to have been a simple enough matter for the president and the Chicago callers"to rearh agreement as to essentials. When the callers learnefl what the president hopes to accomplish thpv discovered thev didn't have much issue to take with him. Mill these callers were given every chance to state tUe.r case fullv. Fres= dispatches tell us t h a t "the president hstpni-d raretullv for more t h a n an hour to what his callers had to sav. and hp interposed ?nme ideas of his own on t h e s ibjprt " Whereupon it was discoveied that th? president and the callers were not far apart. P-rhaps this understanding could be reached in no wav except to get the men together and let them talk It over. It often happen? that In matters of this kind little or no headway onn he made when trying to communicate at long ranSe. And perhaps it will occur to some that this -meeting demonstrated In n way that men are not necessarily undesirable citizens because thev are Con- nected'with what is called "big business." All these callers are men of that kind, and yet they and the p r r B l - «Jeret reached substantial understanding: 3n the course of an agreeable hour The Chicago "big business" ten could not have been such a hurt lot. OUT OF DARKNJ5SS. The council of Pana has made arrangements to light the city once i a g a l n . The story tells that city has been without street lights since the first of last November, a period o moie than eight months. This was be :aiise agreement could not be reachei vlth the company that was to do th lighting. Of course that sort of thing doesn' continue Indefinitely. One might thin that if a city does without street light Ing for eight months it has trained it self to do without for a year; an this can be made two years, and so the story can go indefinitely. But we don't get accustomed to darkness when outdoors. If we have had eight months of It we don't like it as well as when we began on the thing. One can live in the country and get along with dark nights, but the city calls for something else. lood in Decatur as Well as Chicago. The Educational campaign commH- tee of the Illinois Manufacturers' association Is sending out thousands of placards for use In the Chicago safety campaign. They are suggestive and useful for Decatur and worth the consideration of any motorist. The placard follows: Explosion and Flames Ryan-Higgins Store. STREET IS TORN UP And Fire Department Had Hard Time Halting Fire. It seems that people of Greece are pleased to remnrk they got their ..ioney'fc worth,when they paid us J12.- 000,000 for two older battleships. The purchase stopped a threatened outbreak of war In that part of the world. Perhaps there is a pointer for peace promoters in tills story. And now. we are told, in some'parts of the country wheat will be fed to livestock, just because It is cheaper than to feed corn. None of us imagin that lower cost of living would Incak in by this route. ·In case of rain" something is to be aon e about a picnic, says a Decatur item.

A new hic-kory floor was being laid r r " the St. Louis bridge, the cost to l,c $442.65. Two hundred and fifty hymn slng- i,,S and praise shouting Christian En- (U-.tvorfrs trom the state convention at Springfield came over to the chau j tauqua.

Mr. and Mrs. Henry Shlaudeman ar- led home from an extended visit to [ asadena, Cal. \ SCOTCHMEN WON'T MKT IT. This week we had the story that British Furies tried to burn the cot- tagB »t Ayr in which. Robert Burns ·was born, the place tfcat was Ms home as » boy. One would think this cottage is a place even Furies must let alone. Destruction of this cottage would jp-ove a serioup loss to the Avr neighborhood. It is visited by ahout 50.000 tourists each summer season: and nil these go to Ayr Just because the Burn? fcottage is there. It means a good deal In the -way of business to all who have a HvinK to make in that neighborhood. The Scotchman is thought to be the kind of man who would not have patience with anybody, man or woman or child, who would destroy such nn asset as the Burn" cottage. The S-otchman has a full share of sent! ment in this matter; and In addition there is the asset feature, something that also appeals to him. i Tf Furies had succeeded In' dostrov- ine the Burns cottage it would not -have been healthy for them In that neighborhood. But there Is danger that the destruction will be brought about. In planning a matter of this kind these Furies don't take personal consequences Into consideration. Sam Deetz, an employe of the Standard OH company, fell twenty feet from the top of one of the tanks. Chan Powers, George Post, George Rupert, P. Keister and Elmer Van Gundy went to Litchfield to participate in a shooting match. Sixty-five Knights of Columbus and thirty-five other Decatur people went ro Pana to attend the installation of a new council of the lodge. HISTORY OF CIVIL WAR DAY BY DAY JBLT JO, 18»4. Th- confederate raid into Maryland v,is continued, striking cavalry here oud there in lightning like movements which were as unexpected as they were terrifying to the residents of the state. The entire territory -was preyed upon and the militia was pow Two railroad trains from Baltimore uere captured and homes near Baltimore and Washington were destroyed The proximity of the southern troops to the federal capital caused anxiety throughout the north and sent union (roops scurrying to protect the state. WISH TO KEEP-OFF. Teachers who are meeing- his week at St. Paul In the National Educational association convention ha^e Indicated that they are pretty s t i f f l y opposed to giving what are. called "sex instructions', in the schools. It Is told that if the teachers oan h a v e their way.,there ·will be none of this Instruction. One speaker ,ln the convention protested against throwing responsibility for «ex /hygiene instruction upon teacher or football coach" The same New Factory for Peorla. Peoria, July 10.--Another factory has been added to Peoria's rapidly growing list Less than a week ago a new department in connection with the Henry H. Shufeldt company was established for the manufacture of maraschino cherries. Fifty girls are now employed in this department and more are wanted, It is expected that within two weeks 300 additional girls will be employed 'to handle the enormous quantity of cherries which will be used this year, the first of the new Industry. Tt Is the first factory of Its kind ever established in Peoria. It is one of the six of its kind in the country. Roger C Sullivan of Chicago, who touring the state in the interest of his candidacy for the Democratic iiom- ,nation for senator, was given a reception and dinner at the St. Nicholas hotel Thursday evening. The dinner w a s tendered him by J. M. Allen and C. A McMillen T h i r t j - o n e w e r e present. It was not a partisan affair, se\eial Republicans being among tiie guests. In the afternoon a, ji.irtj drove to Mt Zion and met Mr. S u l l i v a n and parti and escorted them to Decatur. The din Tier was served at 6 30 and was follow ed by a reception. Mr. Sullivan spok in the parlors of the hotel. The parti spent the night in Decatur. Today Mr Sullivan is In Champaign county. DOESN'T NEED THE MONEY. Mr. Sullivan said he was glad o£ th opportunity to try and correct an false impressions the people of Maco county m i g h t have received concern ing him. He said that while he ha taken a somewhat active interest in th a f f a i r s of the Democratic p a r t y d u r i n the past thirty vears. this was the firs time he had ever sought a public offlc He was not hungry for the emolument of office, for he said privately that h Sawyer Biscuit company last j e a r cli a business of $2,500,000. He said that th occasion had arisen in which he won' like the opportunity of serving the peo pie of the state. "I have had some experience of ap pairs." he said, "and I believe that I have some common sense and that I know the needs and dpslrpo of the people " He gave a short sketch of his career, and he said that whenever there was oceasion for some one to be Warned for something there were certain gentlemen who laid the blame-on Sullivan, though they accepted his services, his help and his money. LOYAL TO TICKET. He said some of them had been Industriously circulating misinformation about him "They h a v e tried to give me a reputation that was not in keeping with my character. One of the reasons I am a candidate is that I may go among the people and let them see me. meet them and let them know I am not the sort of person certain gentlemen have tried to make me out to be. "I have always been loval to the Democratic ticket and have always supported its candidates with the single exception of 1886 /That year I supported the Palmer anc! Buckner ticket." He urged that the fact that he was from Chicago should not be against him. Location has nothing to do with a man's abilltv, and the candidate should be known to the people. He cited the incident of "Hungry Hogan," a Chicago cab driver, coming witjitn less than BOO votes of w i n n i n g a Democratic nomination at large when Lawrence B Stringer and Elza Williams were nominaaed SUPPORTS WILSON. "We people of Illinois have been in the "habit of nominating and electing "a man and then guessing at what he will do after he Is in. It is time to consider a plain business man now and then forget occaslonallv the lawyers and theorists. Mv friends will tell you my,«word is good. My enemies will admit that, and I tell you that I will be where I say I will, under all circumstances. I supported President Wilson to the best of mv ability and I believe ir. him. I believe that what he is floins? Is for the betterment of all our people. I would like to help him in his efforts and I would llke-the help of the people of this county in getting the nomination and the office for which I am a candidate."

The build- ns belongs to the Decatur Brewing company, and no building loss was suffered. WHEN THE MILK SOURS. Going into the kitchen one day recently, while on a visit to a. young housekeeper, I spied on the dresser two Jars of sour milk. ' "Oh, dear," said my hostess, "I meant to 'get these thrown out before you c.- -n. into the kitchen. I am quite ashamed to have you see them. I suppose It looks like wastefulness; to you for me not to have used them before they soured, but I will naT « them thrown out immediately." "Indeed, no." I responded. "Just think of all the good things that can bfe made from those two jars.

Mich., that the central Illinois sojourners there are j u s t beginning to enjoy the weather. 1 7 P to a few days ago it has been too coo] to be comfortable outdoors.

Friends of Mrs. Bacon will be much interested in k n o w i n g that she Is much better than she was when she' w e n t ' a w a y , and is getting a good rest in the pine woods. , of sour milk, because I think there | is nothing else that gives quite such good results for raisins any sort of flour mixture." ·I should be so grateful," was the response, "it you would show me, because I do not know how to use up sour milk and we often have it In tot weather." My recipe books, of course, were not at hand, and I have an unfortun ate way of forgetting receipts. Bu I decided to use that sour milk and sour cream some way and I knew tha if I remembered to use Jialf a tea spoonful of baking soda with ever: cup of sour milk or sour cream, an applied ordinarily common sense mixing the batter, I could get cak and bread that would be tasty. So set to work with the aid of my youth ful hostess. There was a small jar of cream no quite full. I skimmed the crean trom the full jar of sour milk so that I had one solid cup of thick sour cream. This I decided to make Into a cream cake. Cream cake seems to have gone out of fashion these days, even on the farms, where years ago it was so l a v i s h l y made. Even the farmer's wife now-a-days likes to rend "her cream to market, and she does not let much of it remain at home to sour. But no ingredient that can be put Into a cake gives the velvety texture to It that cream gives, and no butter need be put into a cake ·which contains rich cream, either sour or sweet. We first whipped the cream a little v. ith the egg whisk in order to render it smooth. Into a, bowl, we set the flour sieve and turned into it a cup and a half of flour, a level half-teaspoonful of baking soda, a cupful^ o ugar and a level teaapoonful of "alt. hen these Ingredients were sifted to- ether and 'mixed with the beaten, ream until there was a perfectly, mooth batter. To this was add* 1 * * caspeonful of vanilla flavoring: «nI ast of all one egg, quickly whipped p before being added. The batteC *as divided into two small pans and baked in a rather quick oven. slnc»»- he loaves were small ones. It cam* jut of tho oven a complete success. , Then we turned our attention .to he nearly full jar of sour milk, clabber, as the farmer's wife would call t First of all. we made spfce «ak« muffins. For this we wanted a cupful of molasses; but since 'there' was only a half cupful in the house, we used that together with a generous half cupful of brown sugar. After mixing these together, we^added a. cupful of sour milk, a teaspoonful each of all spice, cloves and cinnamon, and a generous teaspoonful of soda, some allowance belns «nad« for neutralising the acid in the molasses. We also put In two tablespoonfuls of sweet beef: drippings otherwise which would have been thrown away. Then we mixed 10 enough sifted flour to make a rather thick gingerbread consistency, and. last of all, put In about half a cupful of seeded raisins which had been separated and floured, and a few slices of citron. These sou. miik solce calces were baked in muffin rings and tasted almost FS good as genuine fruit cake. One cup of the sour milk went to make drop biscuit, these being m«d« n the same proportions as talcing xwder drop biscuit. No baking pow. iler was used, but a half-teaspoonfuf of soda, for the cup of sour milk. Tha biscuits were mixed soft and dropped rcm a spoon onto a. baking sheet. Another cupful of sour milk went next day into the making of sour milk: griddle cakes, mixed with one egg. The small amount remaining had a. little hot water (below the boiling point) turned into it so that the curd would quickly separate, then, it was strained, and after it had been drained was mixed with salt, a dash of paprika and a little sweet cream and made Into a pat of cottage cheese that went well with the spice cakes. I feel quite sure that my young housekeeper friend will never again te obliged to throw away tour milk. LAURA LEONARD READ A LETTER FROM MISSIONARY One of the interesting features of the meeting of the Woman's Mlss.on- ary society of the German Methodist church Thursday afternoon at the home of Miss Mary Mattes was the rending of a letter from Rev. Herman J. Schutz, a missionary In India. The Decatur people are especially interested in him as he was born In this city, his father, Rev. William Schutz, being pastor of the local church at one time. Mr. Schutz is now pastor at Edwards- ^A 6 pamphlet written by Bishop F. W. Warne on "My Visit to Ballia," also was read Bishop Warne was in India on Mr. Schutz 1 s circuit for several weeks. The pamphlet he wrote in regard ,to the visit to India was especially interesting.
