Newlyweds Lost in
Dense Maine Woods
Lenox, Mass. A story of how
Air. and Mrs. AdelbeVt I. Newton
were lost in the northern waste
of the Maine woods and wander
ed about for four days without
shelter or food wa revealed in
n letter received here from Mr.
Newton.
The Newtons were married In
Kxeter, N. H. Uoth loving the
wilds, they went into the Maine
woo.is for their honeymoon.
From a camp they started for
a walk and lout their way. They
were without a compass and fol
lowed a moose trail which led
them away from all human habi
tation. Unable to locate their camp or
a cabin they passed three nights
out of doors, subsisting on dried
berries. Finally they carne out on
a stream and followed it to a
hunting lodge.

serves to outstanding notes in the thir
ty countries were 70 per cent. By the
time or the armistice it had fallen to
18.4 per cent, while last Christmas
time It had dropped still lower to 13.7
per cent.
The allies, so the tables of the Na
tional City bank show, taken as
group t the start of the war, had
$:i.7(W,(HI0,0K) of gold and $4,000,000,
POO of paper. At Its finish they had
S.",217,000,0OO of gold und $25,000,000,
000 of paper, and now they have of
gold $.1,071 .000.000 nnd of paper $29,'
000.000.ono.
The central powers Germany, AuS'
trla-IIungary. Iiulgnrln, and Turkey-
went Into the war with $(IX),000,000 of
gold and $1,200,000,000 of paper. At
the armistice they had $08(5,0(10.000 of
gold and $12,30.",0000,000 of paper,
while now their paper has gone up to
$1S,771,000.0(X).
To reduce it to percentages, the ra
tio of gold to paper at the start of the
war was: Allies, 70.0 per cent; cen
tral powers, 49.7 per cent. At the ar
mistice the ratio was: Allies, 20.9
per cent; central powers, 3.5 per cent.
At the outset of 1920 the ratio stood:
Allies, 17.1 per cent; central powers,
1.7 per cent.
Increase In Belligerent Countries.
Nnturully most of this increase oc
curred In Uie belligerent countries.
The ratio between gold and notes In
the twenty-three countries nnd col
onies which participated In the war
fell from 71.3 per cent ln July, 1914,
to lo.a per cent m November, 1918,
and to 11.2 lust December. Among
the eight principal neutrals the move
ment w as the other way, their gold In
creasing raster than their currency.
The ratio rose from 44.3 per cent In
1914 to 59.9 per cent Inst December.
from 1914 to last December the ra
tio of gold reserve to currency notes,
the tables show, fell in France from
02 per cent to 9.0; in Great Britain
from 134 to 22.9 per cent: in Itaiv
from 70 per cent to 7.3; in the United
Mates from 99.0 per cent to 52.3.
While world paper currency was in
creasing seven-fold national debts,
represented by bonds and other prom

to $200,000,000,000; bank deposits and
the use of checks and other circulat

LOOK OUT FOR
POISON IN FOOD
Federal Food Officials Warn Con

of Spoilage.
RIPE OLIVES KILL SEVERAL
Botulinus Poison Responsible for Fa
talities No Method of Preserving
Food Found That Eliminates
Occasional Spoiled Package.
Washington. Botulinus poisoning,
which recently killed six in one fam
ily in New York, is caused by eat
ing spoiled food Infected with the ba
cillus botulinus, say the officials of
the bureau of chemistry, United States
department of ngrlculture, who have
investigated this and other poisoning
cases in connection with the enforce
ment of the food nnd drugs act. In
the New York case death was caused
by botulinus poison in ripe olives.
The olives remaining in the bottle in
this case had an offensive odor. The
same condition was found in the food
ln other cases Investigated by the de
partment. All spoiled food does not
contain this poison, but any spoiled
food, even though the spoilage be
slight, may contain It, and for this
reason, say the officials, all food show
Ing even the slightest unnatural odor,
unnatural color, swelling of the con-

tainer, sign of gas, or any evidence
of decomposition whatever, should be
discarded.
Trace Poisonous Food.
The department of agriculture has
used every possible effort and gone to
the limit of its legal authority to re
move all dangerous foods from the
market by seizure under the food and
drugs act, say the officials. Each time
when botulinus poisoning has occurred
food inspectors have. traced through
the channels of commerce the batch
from which the poisonous food came
and have used all measures under
the law to remove it from the market.
Samples from all other brands put
out by the packer have been examined.
Since the law authorizes seizure in
such cases only when the foods are
actually found to be decomposed or
to contain poisonous Ingredients, since
only an occasional package in millions
is infected with bacillus botulinus,
and since it is physically possible to
open and examine but a comparatively
few of the millions of cans entering
Interstate commerce, it is beyond the
power of the authorities to protect
the public completely. For this rea
son they emphasize the necessity for
scrupulous care on the part of per
sons opening and serving foods to dis
card anything which Is spoiled. In
products not obviously spoiled, if there
Is doubt In the recognition of the odor,
proper to the product, thorough cook
ing will remove the possibility of dan
ger from botulism. If spoilage Is ap
parent, destruction Is recommended by
the specialists.
