Leslie's Weekly: My advice to one who is not a good traveler and who desires to avoid -easlckness may be summed up in a very f e w words: Prepare for your journey a week or so ahead by eating simple, plain foods, and avoid as far as possible sweets, sours, fats and condiments. Spend as much of the time on shipboard as possible In the open air, walking or reclining. See to it particularly that you are w a r m l y clad. One inclined to seasickness always feels a sense of chilliness a h n u t the extremities. - C a r r y a hot w a t e r hag and hold it on y o u r lap, or put it at your back or feet while sitting. See that your steamer r u g covers your feet and keep in the sunshine. If you still feel chilly move to a w a r m e r place In the library, reading room or saloon. For breakfast, take a simple, warm d r i n k such as you prefer, either coffee, cocoa or tea, with a bit of dry toast, a baked apple, an orange - or stewed prunes, but not the latter if they are sweet. For lunch take a slice of roast beef, lamb or mutton, cold or warm, with no fat, A piece of toast with hot red gravy Is also easily digested. 7ou can a r r a n g e with your table steward to get it. Mashed potatoes or boiled rice, w i t h slewed f r u i t f t h e latter you will always find on the Herman steamers) should complete the meal. It you are not h u n g r y eat little, For your e v e n i n g meal follew the same simple m e n u that you had at lunch. It Is g-ood thing before you retire and nlso w h e n you awaken in the m o r n i n g to d r i n k a glass of French vlchy slowly, t a k i n g about ten m i n u t e s to do it. If you like it hot, all the better. If in spite of this plain diet you have no appetite and feel distressed, ask the steward to toast a couple of soda biscuits so brown t h a t t h e y will srem a l m o s t b u r n e d . N i b b l e at these u n t i l you feel better. Tho toasted biscuits will taste l i k e popcorn. When you can eat nothing else you will find that y o u r stomach will retain them and you will want something more s u b s t a n t i a l . Then try a piece of lean roast beef or a bit of chop or steak. I have found this treatment effective even in cases of severe seasickness. The soda biscuits mut be throughly browned and no liquid taken with them. Reject the overture of all friends who insist that you should suck a lemon, drink a glass of champagne, ale or porter. Keep warm and in the open air, eat simply and little and your seasickness will disappear. cording to the tests thus far made in the local grain standardization laboratory. The average for t w e n t y - f i v e samples of Illinois wheat is 8.9 Per cent of moisture. Th« maximum moisture shown in these twenty-five samples is 10.6 per cent and the m i n i m u m Is 7.7 per cent. Practically all of these samples are No. 2 wheat. Mr. Russell, the head of the Decatur station, says that the wheat In Illinois Is phenomenally dry and that it will take on more moisture it the opportunity is offered. MANY SAMPLES. Several h u n d r e d samples of the new wheat c.rop have been received at the local station and additional samples are coming in at the rate of thirty or forty a day. All of the regular force of the station are out in the field making observations of the wheat crop and gathering samples. Mr. Rusaell is In Indiana and Ohio getting a line on the wheat crop in those states. TUSCOLA MAN HERB. P. M. Chadwick of Tuscola has been temporarily employed in the local station on laboratory work and is m a k - ing m o i s t u r e tests on the wheat samples. He will bo here t h i r t y days during th« wheat and oats threshing season. M A R K E T S CHICAGO BOARD OF TRADE QUOTATIONS (Furnished by War* it LoUnd.)
