The Human
Chemical Factory
Some Remarkable Pacta About Kgg.j
And Whin They Contain
The latest research prows that
I,it'll eggs hold all the chemical elements contained in a man weighing
ISO pounds. This does not mean
that it you make an enormous omelet
of these 1,200 eggs a man would bc
produced. It does signify, however,
that the elements in llie eggs would
be. equal (lo the elements in a man.
If a person were to cat nothing
but eggs hc would get just the chemicals' needed for suppori ing life, but
llic system would not digest an exclusive diet like this, The person
trying to live on eggs alone would
soon sicken, and if the diet were nol
changed, would die.
If an average man, weighing 150
pounds, were reduced lo a fluid he
would yield 3,030 cubic feci of illuminating gas and hydrogen, or enough
to fill a balloon that would carry 155
If the nominal body were taken
just us it is and all of the elements
extracted from it there would he
found enough iron to make sei en
large nails; enough fat for fourteen
pound candles; enough carbon to
make, lhc lead in 65 gross of pencils,
and phosphorous enough to, tip 820,-
009 matchef, Besides all this would
bc found 20 teaspoonfuls of salt, 50
full-sized lumps oi sugar and 28
quarts of water.
Thus it is evident that a human
being is a great chemical factory,
and the value of a man in actual
materials is considerable.
Thc 100 dozen eggs would yield
precisely the same qualities of these
chemical elements, and even at the
present high rate of eggs most of us
would rather have the eggs used for
the purpose than the man.

A Tonic Is All Vou Need
K'ot  exactly sick-but  not    feeling

people feel in the    spring.      Easily
tired,      appetite    fickle,      sometimes
headaches,  and  a  feeling of  depres-
j sion.    Pimples or eruptions may appear on the skin, or there    may    be

I of winter has left its mark upon you
and  may  easily  develop  into    more

Do not dose yourself with purgatives, as so many people do, in the
hope that you can put your blood
right. Purgatives gallop through thc
system and weaken instead of giving
strength. Any doclor will tell you
this is true. What you need in
spring is a tonic, that will make new
blood and build Up the nerves. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills is lhc only medicine that can do this speedily, safely and surely. Every dose of this
medicine makes new blood which

Change of Seed an Actual Injury
Will wc ever learn that change of
seed does not necessarily mean an
improvement? Every experiment so
far conducted has shown that a
change produced a decreased tonnage
and lowered quality when olhcr factors were alike. One can easily ac
count for the loss from the fact that
after a plant becomes adjusted to the
soil and climatic conditions a change
will require, a readjustment.
There is an old saying that three
moves are equal to a lire; that is, a
person cannot he continually changing and not Buffer loss.
The plant Butters as much as the
human when wc do not give it a

Warning on the Peril of
Fly Poison
Dr, Ernest A. Sweet, passed Assistant Surgeon, United Statis Pub-
tic Health Service, is lhc author of a
government health bulletin on "The
Transmission of Disease by Plica,"
which contains it timely warning on
the dangers of arsenic. Ily poison,
Ur. Sweet considers their use a menace which line.ileus every home.
That the Ily poison peril is a real one
is proved by lhc fact lhat the Anicri-
ian Press has recorded 106 child
poisoning cases iu lhc last three
Dr. Sweet advises his readers to
destroy flies some olhcr way llian
with arsenic Ily poison. lie says,
"Of olhcr fly poisons mentioned,
mention should be made, for the purpose of condemnation, of those composed of arsenic. Fatal cases of lhe
poisoning of children through the
use of such compounds arc far too
frequent, and owing to lhe resemblance of arsenical poisoning to summer diarrhoea and cholera infantum
we believe thai the cases reported do
not, by any means, comprise the total. Arsenical fly destroying devices must, therefore, be rated as extremely dangerous and should never
be used, even if other measures are
not at hand."

Increasing  Indications   That the Central  Powers Are Casting
About for Some Way to Bring tlie War to an End, as the
Pinal Catastrophe is Drawing Near
I'\ I'i. .irtirnl. I'afl, in'a speech delivered a few days ago in New Vork
���aid  "llic   world   i.s  out  to   suppress
militarism and absolutism, and the
curse will puss from Germany when
the Hohcnzollern dynasty is overthrown, .ind the people have taken
the government Into their own
hands." In lhis statement he has indicated two oi the ways In which
Germany is undergoing strangula
tion; a third one is the economic deterioration o( the whole empire. In
oilier words, thc pressure on Germany is that of three differing bul
correlated forces- -military, exerted
by means of armies nud navies) economic, caused by unprofitable expenditures and an effective blockade,
uml political, encouraged and Inteusi
fied by the so far successful revolution in Russia. Any one of these factors might prove, acting alone, inadequate to effect the collapse of
Germany's resisting power; il seems
absolutely certain that their close
co-operation must soon reduce the
'Central Powers" to submission, If
It does not, the final catastrophe will
bc all the more complete when it
does come, Subjugation, exhaustion,
connote inevitable threefold ruin.
'Ihere arc daily increasing indications that all the Central Powers-
Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria
and Turkey���nre casting about for
some way of bringing the war to an
end. They know by this time that
there is not the slightest chance, of
a break-up of the Allied combination
-gainst them. While the Allies are
not likely to make a separate peace
with any of the nations on the. other
llde, the fact that it is open to them
to do so may bc a means of bringing
an irresistible pressure to bear on
Germany to ask for peace terms,
with an honest offer oi reasonable
conditions. Meanwhile the fighting
piust go on. In such a war there can
be no provisional cessation of hostilities. Against a foe so efficient as
the German armies in France and
Belgium there must be maintained an
increasingly vigorous and sustained
series of attacks. Sooner or later the
whole combination must break down,
and the harder the pressure the
shorter will be the interval of suspense aud sacrifice.���Toronto Globe.

Contentment in India
Large Portion of the Country Is Not
Under British  Administration
" The notion prevails in the United
States ilml all India belongs io the
Hriiish and is administered by
lliein," snys S.iinl Niliol Singh in
a recent Interview, "This is an
utterly erroneous idea. A very
large and populous portion of tile
peninsula Is In '.lie possession of iis
nun people, and is ruled by lhc, i,
with little: or .no Interference! from
the British. I have coined thc term
'Indian India' to differentiate be
tween the India belonging to Indians
and lhat iu lhe possession of lhe
Brilish. Indian India, with ils area
of 850,000 square miles, is almost
one-third as large as continental
United Males. Its population, 78,-
000,000 persons, is a Utile mon; than
four-lifilis that of this country. Politically, British India ia united. It
is divided inlo three presidencies
and twelve provinces, wliicli are under the supreme government of India, presided ovcr by the Viceroy
and Governor-General, who i.s under
the .Secretary of State for India���a
member of the British cabinet. Indian India, on the contrary, is not
one political entity.
"During recent years I have had
the privilege of coming in close contact with several Indians who rule,
in their own right and name, and I
have watched their public and private, lives. Withoul a single exception, I have found thc Indian rulers
to hi men of great administrative
capacity and statesmanship, all devoted to the welfare of their subjects and interested in all sorts of
reform movements. Not many public servants or business men in
America or elsewhere work so hard
as do these Indian potentates."
Gerard in Berlin
Hated by Germans for His Sympathy
With British Prisoners
The plain talk by .1. W. Gerard,
ex-minister to Germany, in New
York about ihe treatment given
prisoners by the Germans, is merely
a repetition of what he said to the
authorities in Berlin, His unpopularity in Berlin because of his refusal
to keep his eyes shut to conditions
was extreme. A correspondent of an
English paper, writing after cscap
Ing from the German capital, said ol
Ambassador Gerard:
"Of the neutral ambassadors that 1
met in Berlin lhc only one wh >
seemed to me to have any outstanding personality was Mr, Gerard, the
American ambassador, who shared
with Mr. Lloyd George ihc reputation of being the. best haled man in
ihe. Fatherland,
"At the    Wilhclmstrasse   he   was
positively    detesled    because    of his
outspoken remarks aboul ihe disgraceful condition of lhe British
prisoner camps in Germany, and
also because of his repeated warnings to thc German government as
to the grave effect on German-
Amcrican diplomatic relations that
would be caused by resumption of
unlimited piracy. There was much
talk of a plot io murder him, and 1
recall the great excitement which
prevailed when he was the object of
a rude demonstration at ihc thcatne."

England's conduct towards her
German residents and her German
prisoners and the German dead shot
down from those assassins of thc air,
the Zeppelins, and delivered up by
those assassins of the deep, the U-
boats, has provided an exhibition of
broad-mindedness and of ihc sporting
spirit such as the world has not before recorded. To observe the collective Englishman at work in his
town or on the march or on thc tiring line is to impel you to take off
your hat to him. Those Americans
who now seize upon every pretext to
take a fling at England will be
thanking God before the German
beast is beaten into compliance with

and lhat. the spirit lo uphold national

Huns Grossly Deceived
Women Most Gullible of all, Writes
Northcliffe's Man
Writing of middle class Germans,
Mr. D. Thomas Curtin said: "While
there are an increasing number of
doubters among the German mankind as to the accuracy of statements issued by thc government, in
the class with which I mostly came
into contact in Germany the women
are blindfolded and believe all they
are told. So strong, too, is the influence of government propaganda on
the. people of Germany that in a
town where I met two English ladies
married to Germans they believed
Unit Germany had Verdun in her
grasp, had annihilated the English
tioops (mainly black) on the Somme
had defeated the English fleet in thc
battle of Skagerack (Jutland), and
reduced the greater part of the fortifications, docks, and munition factories of London to ruins by Zeppelins, Their anguish for the fate of
their English relations was sincere,
and tlicy were, intensely hopeful that
England would accept any sort of
terms of peace in order to prevent
thc invasions wliicli some people in
Germany  still believe possible.
Austrian Balderdash
How Strange Is the Austrian Idea of
The Vienna Arbeitcr Zcilling, organ of the Austrian Socialists, quotes
the following passage from llio
Rclchsbote, the organ of lhe court
party, as a typical example of ihe
condensed balderdash characteristic
of this paper:
"In all that concerns the. spirit of
public circumstances, the justice and
righteousness of ihe government of
Il.e State, the sanity of the constitution and its policy during the war,
we iu Austria are incomparably superior to our enemies. How grandly
stands ihe constitution of Austria-
Hungary beside thc constitutions of
States like France and America,
where the leaders of flic nation arc
condemned to be mere mouthpieces
for plutocrats.
"Austria declared war on Serbia
because our splendid heir to the
throne had been murdered, and because it was necessary to root out
tlie nests of the conspirators. How
absolutely moral was such a motive
for war! How grand the Austrian
idea of Statcl"

Building Up llie Town Adds Dollars  to (lie Value o( llie larm
Land and Other Fivcd Investments; and Means Greater
Social and Fdueational Advantages
'the closer your land is lo a good
town, the more money it talo .. to buy
it. We all know that, Aboul the
lirsl thing the owner tries lo do when
you dicker for a piece oi laud, is to
justify the high price you are asking
by pointing out how close the land
is to town and the good roads leading lo il. lie knows this Is il .....st
appealing argument  he can  | Ul  rip.
Land close to town and adjoining
good roads is not only desirable because crops can bc marketed wilh the
least trouble and expense, but llicrc
aie olhcr social and econ ical advantages as well.
Consider the. cold matter ol what
a town is worth to ihc people owning land in the vicinity, measured
from a dollars and cents standpoint.
Mr. O.R, Johnson of the Missouri
Agricultural Station made a careful
investigation of 650 farms and he
proved by actual figures whal a lot
of us have known in a general way
for a long time.
For instance, in the locality investigated, tin; 7!) farms within Iwo
miles of town had au average value
of $78.70 per acre a.s compared with
$70._0 per acre for the IW farms
from two to four miles from town;
$60.90 per acre for the I-'6 farms
tour to six miles from town; $'8_0
for the 11.) farms sis- lo eight miles
from town, and $55.90 for the 149
farms over eight miles from town,
Mr. Johnson says thai tin- most
rapid decrease ill value occurred in
the first six. utiles, after which the
difference of a mile or two from
town  made less relative difference.
In another instance, he points oul
lhat 42 farms valued ni $100 or more
per acre, had an average haul of
about two and one-half miles lo market; 02 in the $80 group had nearly
three miles, and the 275 in the. $'il)
group five miles lo haul, while 246 in
the $10 group averaged six and onc-
foiirlli miles to lown.
These figures are. startling, Listen
to this:
In one locality investigated, a farm
of 160 acres Iwo and one-half miles
from town had a market value of
$10,000, while the. same kind of farm
located six and one-fourth miles from
town was only worth $6,400. Ami
still, if you told lhc man win) owned
the lirst farm lhat his home town
was actually worth iu dollars and
cents lo him, personally, $10,000, he
would probably spend a good deal of
time trying to show you (hat he
would be better olf without lhe. town
at all. We have gotten so in the habit of lambasting /our home -town,
most of thc time for some petty political reason, that wc frequently refuse to scc the truth when il. i-. placed before us in actual figures,
Just the same, when we get off by
ourselves, overcome our jealousies
and temporarily forget about the.
town man that we have it in for, then
we really have to admit that the
home lown is far and away Ihc most
valuable asset to evciy man, woman
and child iu the community.
This leads us a step further. Once
wc commence asking questions, we
no sooner have onc of them answered than we ask another. Our first
question was "What's lhe good of
thc home town':" and wc answered it
by saying that, among other Ihings,
it really donated $10,000 io onc man
and like amounts, proportion:,!, ly, to
every other man owning land in the
And now we ask the second question, "What makes a real, live, valuable home town?" We mighi dodge
thc question by answering, "I "Is of
Ihings," but, really, if we arc honest,
wc will get-close lo the truth n\ saying, "The merchants," because without the merchants there would be no
town. It is just as impossible lo have
a town wilhoui merchants as ii is to
have a lake withoul waicr. The mer
chants make the town just as ihe
water makes -the lake. Of course,
olhcr things have to be favorable,
but the fact remains, that without
merchants, you would have no town,
and the belter the mercantile establishments, the belter the' town���al*
Now, we move along to the third
question. "How is the home town to
have good merchants?'' Dear friends,
there is no secret about it at all.
(iood stores in your home town its
the result of growth. They have to
be invited, encouraged and maintain-
ed. You have to get them ju��l like
you mature superior cuttle, horses
and hogs, by treating them fairly
and giving them a chance to grow.
In the language of the street, "You
can't play a lone hand in your community and get away with it very
long," and the business game Is just
the same. If the town is to help you,
you must help the town, ami the
beauty of it is, by benefiting the
town, you always and invariably
benefit yourself most.
These benefits arc direct and indirect. Duilding np lhe town adds
dollars to the value of your land and
other fixed investments. That point
is sealed. Nobody seriously disputes
it. It means greater social and educational advantages, benefits that
cannot be measured by dollars and
cents, but while apparently indirect,
they are direct again in the sense
that lhcy add to the value of your
fixed investments, because these are
among the desirable things for
which-people generally arc wilting to
In summing up, as the lawyers
say, sifting out ail the evidence ami
considering a few pertinent facts,
you lirst want a good home town,
and you want it as near to you __
possible���and, further, you warit
good roads leading to it.
Now, to have a good tows, yr:
must havc good store?���there is ~ ���>
other way to make it���and to hi.*
good stores and good merchants, yon
must give them a chance to liv-,
thrive and grow. You must treat
them fairly. You do not abuse your
stock, because such treatment does
not pay, and thc same personal interest is at stake in community build,
ing, You must consider the merchants of your town as a community
investment in which you are both indirectly and directly interested. YotJ
are a stockholder, as it were, in your
home town, and the better you maid
your home lown, the better your in*
vestment will bc.
You can't make your home town
better unless you are on the squar.
with it and give the business interests
there the proper chance for a normal
and legitimate growth. Remember
the story of the farmer who was so
Bclfish and short sighted that he tried
to make money by stunting I113 hegs.
When he finally sold the runts, h��
found that'he had paid a, mighty big
price for the feed he had saved.
Just how many of us have driven
into town with any thought of what
our loss would be if that town wirs
wiped out entirely and never replaced? How many of us have considered that the town really meant anything to us except for a little wild
talk on our part at times? How
many of us have considered that the
merchants of the town were conferring upon us, and upon all members
of the community, advantages worth
in dollars and ccins immeasurably
more than any profits they got out
of us?

around a monkey? 'ihis is going loo

'I do not know that il is like me.
as 1 see myself shriving in the morning," the Squire had said, "but I do
know that Watts might have painted it."
Lionel Egerton swore in huge delight that hc had never done anything
so good. It should go to the Academy, with Meyricka permission.
Ihe Squire, meanwhile, pending
Mrs. Egcrton's talking her husband
over, had gone up to London, after
Ir.ying the cheque in Mrs. Egcrton's
sea-green lap, where her fingers softly enfolded it.
He had things to udl Hilary. After
all, it was not so bad, what he hud to
report, Hilary would sec things us
he saw them. There was nothing of
what lie would have hated to convey
to the boy. There was only a puzzlement, a bewilderment,
He had told the Vicar thc resull
of his visit to Mr, Langton. They
had agreed that there was nothing
to bc done, Neither man would, if
he could, have taken the responsibility of sending Lady South back to
her brutal husband. The old butler
at Marigolds, despite his clinging to
his master, had told Mrs. Ellison
and Mrs. De Montmorency when
they called together, that Sir Gilbert
lived much as usual. He sat at table
every day, his riding whip to his
band, as though his wifc and daughter might walk in al any moment,
"I've louk the whip from him myself often," he had added; "and it.
was red after he had lashed Miss
Margaret with it. He never laid it
on her Ladyship, as 1 know, but he
did let Miss Margaret have. it. There,
he is a brute."
The repitition of this story had had
sn immediate effect on public opinion in Silverdale.
Mrs. De Montmorency detailed
lhc story one day -when she- met Ihc
Squire, in her characteristic way of a
lighl cruelty.
"Isn'l it like an opera-bouffe?" she
.aid. "Lo you suppose thc wicked
old v, retch really sits there with thc
riding whip waiting for his unfortunate daughter? or is it only a brilliant invention of a butler who bus
mistaken his vocation?"
"I only know," said the Squire
Itlffly, "that Lady South's friends
and Margaret's, who have placed
them beyond the reach of such brutalities, arc abundantly justified."
"Oh," said Mrs. Dc Montmorency,
"you know all about it, you artful
person I Yo'i knew all the time I
Who coiihl have believed it of you?
And what about the old lover?"
For once the Squire showed a
quality of finesse with which no one
would havc credited him. He took
Mrs. Dc Montmorency into his confidence.
"I believe I may trust you," he
(8Id uinsi untruthfully, and told Mr
Pritchard afterwards that he had literally seen lhc lady's ears move.
"Supposing tbe lover were only n
trusted old friend? Mid supposing
Lady Soulh were like lo die of the
life she was bailing? Supposing shi
iurd to be taken away for medical
treatment nnd lhat she look so much

"(.ih, you wretch, you've been in n
ull the time. I believe the Vicar
was in it too. What a pair of con-
spiratorsl   Do tell mc morel"
"There's no more  to be lold."
Mrs. De Montmorency went off,
shaking a playful finger at the Squire
and (old the next person she met in
strict confidence that she knew
where Lady South and Margaret
had taken refuge from the brutality
of old Sir Gilbert. As for the lover
slory, "there wa-- nothing in it, my
dear. Only an old doctor friend
who came lo persuade her to save
her life, and keep her wretched old
husband from the. gallows." She
could tell more ii she. liked but
of course, _s it was told to her in
strict confidence  .   ,   .
Afler all, lhc scandal about I.ady
South was stale. Ihere was no great
difficulty in Idling it die. And to bc
lure, the Squire's visits to, and intimacy with those odd people at thc
New Cottage had not escaped notice. The neighborhood bad not

that amazing piece of information,

walking across the common,
He caught up with the Vicar   hy

The Squire had just wired, bidding
Hilary to  expect him,     He    would
not disappoint the boy again, but he
wanted  to  slay,    He did not quite
know why he wanted to stay    nor
what he expected to do,   But some-,
thing had to be done.    He had fore-j
seen all  the    time    that      Cooper's j

Hilary remonstrated. It was no use.
No use in the Squire telling thc boy
that he had to go, that something
drew him back, some premonition of
evil. There were moments during
the dinner when he was in torture
lo be gone. Hc was in no mind for
the theatre Hilary suggested, which
would have meant Hilary giving up
one dance and arriving late at the
olhcr. The summer night was lovely In London, where the west wind
.brought in counlry smells of new
j hay and ruffled the great river till

The Torpedo
Engine of Destruction the Invention
ot an Englishman
When a German U-boat sends a
torepdo on iin mission of destruction
it is utilizing a weapon of British
origin, since the. modern locomotive
torpedo was lhe invention of Whitehead, a British engineer. It was in
1877, forty years ago, that the
Whitehead torpedo first came into
notice. Whitehead's original torpedo carried twenty-six pounds of gun-
cotton and travelled eighteen knots.
Tlie twenty-one inch Whitehead torpedo now in use carries 330 pounds
of gun-cotton and has a range of
over si\ miles, at a speed of thirty
knots. At a range of four miles ils
speed is about forty-five knots. The
explosive is packed in tho head oi
the torpedo, and is usually guncot-
lon, although the Germans use whal1
lhcy call trinitrotoluene. The explosion is caused by a steel rod
which projects a few Inches beyondl
the head of the missle. When this
rod or striker comes In contact with,
any unyielding substance, such as a
ship's side, It is pressed back against
the detonation, and, woosb!    '

Far Under the Normal
The. world's food crop is deficient

American representative of lho International Institute of Agriculture,
Mr. Lubin is urging the imperative
necessity of mobilizing of American.
agricultural resources. To a corrcs
pondent of thc Associated Press Mr.
Lubin said:
"For thc first time in many years
there exists a deficit in Ihe supply of
corn, wheat, rye, barley and oats, csi
limaicd at a total of 130,000,000 bush-
fls less than lhc normal requirements for countries open to trade.
7 he situation is worse than was expected last October. The instituted
reports indicated then a surplus of
more than enough to iced the world
until August of this year, when the
new crops begin to come in.
"We must profit by Europe's ex-
pi.ricnce before meal tickets become-
necessary. Wc can avoid high prices
by the eliminating of vyaste, by the.
growing of more food and also by effective organization of our food ��up-
ply, which is more important than
getting men into thc army.
"Two months after the beginning
of the war Germany forbade thc us*
of wheat or rye for feeding livestock,
and two months laler requisitioned

to prevent the manipulation of food
