THE ALBUMEN WE NEED.

C o m p a re W i t h Meat.
“Why do we eat moat?" asks Dr.
Daniel Claude In an article in Nature,
afid lie answers his question by saying,
"First to supply the albumen necessary
to our bodies, then because meat is a
pleasant food, easily digested and as
Many physiologists have estimated
the quantity of albumen necessary to
our systems and have given widely
differing figures, but today it is gen
erally held that one grain per day per
kilogram of body weight is ample—
that is to say, that a man weighing
160 pounds actually needs only be
tween five and six ounces of albumen
a day. Children and growing youths
need more. Meat, however. Is not the
only food that Is rich in albumen. A
quarter of a Brie cheese, for instance,
contains as much albumen as half a
pound of beefsteak. Lentils, peas and
beans are from 20 to 25 per cent albu
men. which means that these vegeta
bles are worth actually more than
steak and cost far less.
According to Dr. Claude, our daily
needs in the way of albumen can be
satisfied by any one of the following:
Beefsteak .........................................14 ounces
C utlets ................................................18% ounces
Salted tongue .................................. 18% ounces
Milk ...................................................... 2 quarts
Chicken .............................................. 20 ounces
Eggs ..................................................... 9
Cheese ................................................ A ounces
Almonds .............................................25 ounces
H aricot beans .................................. 8% ounces
L entils ............................................... 11% ounces
Bread ..................................................29 ounces
From these it is easy to make a selec
tion, picking those thut cost the least.
W a r f a r e In the Air.
A high powered airplane engine of
the best type—say 120 to 130 horse
power—cannot be purchased for much
less than $5,000. *Ar.d the whole air
plane, a big one, may reauily cost $10,-
000 to $20,000.
A fast modern airplane has an aver
age life of only about two or three hun
dred hours of active service—say two
mouths at the outside. This means
that to keep 10,000 airplanes on a bat
tle line you have to be able to build
5,000 per mouth or more. The cost
would be almost unthinkable. That is
why warfare In the air for any length
of time would bankrupt the world. And
that in turu is why warfare in the air

CARE OF THE REEL.

The Japanese have hundreds of knots,

of cord. Some are as old as the time
when history was »•ecorded by a series
of knots, just as it was in China and
Peru before writmg was invented.
There are dozens of knots in common
and ceremonial usage, and these every
child can tie.
In one educational museum of Japan
is a great frame of the most beautiful
knots, tied in silken and gold thread.
This had formed a part of Japan's ex
hibit at a certain world's fuir. For six
months this wonderful collection had
hung upon the wall and only two visiG
ors had noticed and Inquired about it.
Even these thought the knots must be

There is an appeal to the imagination

cord when sending a New Year's or

A sword bag, a flag or spear bag, a dis
patch bag, or the box containing some
precious piece of porcelain or lacquer,
must each lie tied in a certain way.
The ill bred person classes himself
with the foreigner by Ignoring such
niceties of custom, and an object tied
in a slovenly manner may not only bear
witness to the sender’s ignorance, but
it may carry with it a deadly insult.—
