PRUNE COMES INTO ITS OWN
Haa Won Official Recognition aa Con
fection Worthy of Being Served
to Fighting. Men,
In the piping tlins of peace the
prune waa the butt of cheap wlta and
the bnne of the boarder. Nov when
the acid test of utility and palatabll-
Ity la applied the despised prune steps
into the preferred class at least on
the American army bill of fare. It
haa won It way solely on Its own
merit. The counts 'In Its favor are
food value, tonic value a'nd value aa a
confection. It nourishes, stimulates,
and delights. j
The surgeon general of the army
himself testifies to the loyal and help
ful support of the once belittled fruit
Be baa added his recommendation to
the approving report of the subsist
ence division. This report tells us that
out of the 1017 crop 20,000,000 pounds
of prune have been consumed by our
fighting men. Based on size fifty-five,
which ia the trade designation of the
a vera bo prune, the total number con
sumed would be 1,100,000,000. Placed
aide by side It ia quite possible that
this total of prunes wouldn't reach
from the American trenches to Berlin,
but each prune, no doubt Is doing Its
best to help the Yankee fighters cover
There would be a sort of poetical
Justice In the circumstance If the
cheerful Idiot and the other boarders
whose table wit lingered longest about
the patient prune could meet It over
tlior In Flanders and In Plcardy and
find It honored and extolled as the
food of fighting men.
WAGE WAR ON GRASSHOPPERS
California Authorities Devising Ways
and Means to Protect Agriculture
al Lands From Pest
County horticultural commissioners
throughout California have been asked
to forward Information on the gross-
hopper pest reported prevolent In
number of districts, particularly In
northern California, to George H.
Hecke, state bortlnltornl commis
Fragmentary reports received at
Ilccke'a office have Indicated that
lnrge swarms of gruRxhopperx have
liifested agricultural districts In Sut
ter, Mpdoc Lassen, Butte and other
counties and have caused considerable
damage to crops.
One of the best methods of exterm
ination, nn official ald. Is the spread
ing of poisoned bran mash, which the
hoppers devour quickly. Burning of
the grass also Is an effective means,
tut the Ore menu re at this season
necessitates the exercise of greatest
Uarrowlne, by ivlilch means the
PB of the hoppers are brought to the
snrfoce to be eaten by ants or other
Insects and flooding the ground also
are advocated to prevent batching.
The enforcement of laws for the
curbing of pests la vested In the coun
ty horticultural commissioners, but In
enses where the menace to crops
extensive the state commission co-operates
in a concerted campaign of ex
termination, as was done this spring
when the state-wide rodent drive waa
Cyclist In Spectacular Feat
An army motorcyclist at one of the
training camps recently averted the
death of a young lieutenant by a most
extraordinary feat of heroism, says
ropulnr Mechanics Magazine. Racing
ut high speed across rough ground, he
drove his machine into a runaway
parachute that wus dragging the offi
cer to bis death. The lutter had made
a practice parachute Jump of 2,000
feet from an observation balloon.
high wind had carried him a consider
able distance, and In landing he be
came hopelessly entangled in the cord-
nge. The parachute was caught by a
strong air current and blown ut terrific
speed acress the field, pulling Its help
less prisoner with It At the same in
stnnt the cyclist passing along a near
by motor mad, saw the officer's plight
He swerved his machine Into the field
and raced at top speed squarely into
the middle of the bellied parachute.
The ropes fouled the machine and the
weight of the latter anchored the dere
lict against further movement.
War Gaa Causes Appendicitis.
The various poison gases so much
in use at present at the European
battle zone are not only breathed, but
are swallowed. This might seem
strange nt first, but the likelihood of
swallowing some amount of a gas Im
pregnating the atmosphere mny readily
be seeu. This might take place inci
dental to the Intake of food and both
to normal and convulsive actions of
the throat. Such swallowing of toxic
vapors causes a variety of dlges(Ional
disturbances, according to the amount
of gas ingested.
According to an article In the Jour
nal de Medeclne et de Chlrurgle
Pratique, appendicitis has been found
caused by swallowed gnu., especially
when the gas' contains chlorine. The
progress of the malady was rapid, but
rather mild, and treatment was effec
tive,'., . '..
