What has become ^of the old-fashioned girl who used to get bedquilts • and flannel petticoats for ^vedding presents?—Galena Republican'. You saw her the other day coming down the business «treet and the sight somehow made jou forget your business errand and Wok you back down the misty lai'Je of yesterday- way back to Grandihiothers" wonderful kitchen wheremarvelous pies made fragrant the air, and the cookies with big raisins in the center grew for little bare-leggwl boys and little girls with big sunUonnets and gingham aprons. She did not come tripping down the street like the gay young buds of thi;-- fox-trot, age, but .slowly, anj timidly she made her way; along. Nor was she garbed in any qf these new-fang­ led, narrow, ])ettie6atless creations, .\or did she wear r. <iat of crazy curves and angles,^ or • high-heeled shpes, mouse colored or of bronze tint. On her head, silvered by many winters' frosts she >vore a quaint little bonnet, and her; dfess was one of those old black alpaca affairs of the- pli^sh family alburafvintage—ample to conceal flannel petticoats galore, and at her throat was a bit of lace and an old gold band pin^ such as no jeweler carries now. It was well worn bui you could still read tlfc letters on i( 1— "Mother." i • A queer old figure, yes, for these days of ever-changing, flashing styles but you forgot all ithis as you looked j at her wrinkled, jnothc^rly face iand caught the kindly -^leam of her eyes from behind the gold-rimmed specs. Ah, there was so-much of goodness and sweetness and. purity and graciousness there—so much of .genuine- n'ess and sympathy* and divinity, that you felt yourself ?n the presence of real royalty and in your heart of hearts you murfnured, "God bless her."—Herbert CaVaness in Chanute Tribunie. - . ZEPPELI\8 iX PE.iCE. Washington PoSt: A recent mter- vfe'w with count .Ferdinand von Zeppelin presents thjit distinguished in- jvenfor and man df world affairsvin ii •most pleasing .ligjit. With the clouds of war hovering over himself and hi? country^ he is still "aMe to cast a cheery iand hopeful glance into the future. By his own confession,.the g^ gantic^'airships that bear his name have a greater mission to perforn- than that to whiph they are now being mainly. devo|ed. Predicting the Iday when the t'rans-Allantic voyugf will be made through the air, he hopes to live to pilot a dirigible oi his own making to the shores of ihiF country on a mission of peace. How much better this than all th<' dreaJnis of empirie! What an improvement over the view that makes of tht, Zeppelin an engine of destruction it" the happier outlook which sees it pur -|j suing its unhindered, way across pie vast sea, upon v'hich it will be privileged to look (fown upon the slower argosies of commerce, representing the enterprise ojfall nations, each flying its own flag, without fear or favor! Doujily to be desired is the com- _^ing day,. when jidoing instead df undoing wHl be tlie rule of the peoples. Back of Count von'Zeppelin's expressed desire appears 'to be further incentive of its entire practicability. For sustained i^ight under the most ad'»'er8e conditiims, the dirigibles are in no w|ise at a jdisad vantage with tht afereyplalnes. As a means for the transpohation of numerous passengers or appreciable amounts of material, . they arJB far ahead of their rivals in aerial'navigation. The ingenuiljf that has been expend I ed in making .of the dirigibles a menace to the ent 'Hiy will find a better and probably 'more successful field I in lis appiicatlpn to the arts of peace.

' Buffalo Comjnercial: At this time when certain Jood prices are soaring ' the houseboldsf's mind quite naturally tui^us to measures of economy and retrenchment, v Flour which ig subject to an unusual demand owing to the European war, ig constantly rising in price, *ujul everyone is speculating on wliat the outcome will be. Many guggestiona ha\'« been made regarding tlie husbaadingof wheat fldiir by the ueflleatlon for bread more corn, and. the German ' war breald, made largely from potatoes and rye, has beeif recommended as a makeshift. A United States Inspector, however, suggests ^a plan which might be followed, not only with profit as an economical measure, but also as a t>ene> fit to the general Health of the people. It is to grind the wheat in .the old-fashioned way Into what is known as whole-wheat flour, thus getting about forty pounds of nour from one bushel of wheat, instead of less than thirty pounds by the "patent" process. \ The inspector says: "The coarfcr dark flour from the entire wheat contains twelve of the sixteen elementary substances found in the human body, while the white refined flour has only four of them, the rest and best going into the;'.'middlings," etc., for cattle food. ^ give the best part to the cattle and take the waste part, the impoverished part, for ourselves and our children.

The real taste is a delightful savor distinctively Postiim—rich and nourishing. Unlike Coffee, Postum never imposes upon its users a tribute of headache, nervousness, biliousness, sleeplessness, heart flutter and other ills, because Postum contains not a particle of the coffee-drug, caffeine, or any other harmful ingredient.

New Haven, Conn.—-A nabylonian tablet, believed to have been buried in the earth more than fouz>. thousand years and containing the earliest law code, recently has been unearthed, and is now in possession of Yale university. The tablet is lieavily encrusted but part of it has been cleaned and deciphered. The laws are written in^the Sumer- lan language, the language of Southern Babylonia, prior to its conquest by the Semites or Accadlans, in the time of Hammerabi. Owing to the imperfect knowledge of the language, the work of deciphering is extremely difficult, but the university expects to have complete translations made and published. The laws that have been translated refer to legislation; concerning injur>- to women;; the repudiation of children who have perhaps been adopted; elopement; the hire of boats and cattle; and provision for the killing of a hired ox by a lion. ' These laws are' believed to have been written about 2500 tf. C. TUOS. H. UOWLlfj, l're»Ment. .1, F. StOTT, Cashier Allen Clounty State Bank ESTABLISHED A QUARTER OF A CENTURY Capithl: .......
