I 1 t!
A housewife who has to put up
three lunches every morning for
three children insists that this is
the very hardest thing about keep
ing house. It seems to her as if
housework would be a pleasure
were it not for those lunches.
Doubtless the thing that makes
them hardest is that they must be
prepared in the early morning when
there usually is enough to do simp
ly in preparing the breakfast To
be sure, some housewives simplify
the task by putting them up the
night before, insisting that if the
sandwiches are wrapped in waxed
paper and pla.ced in the refrigerator
they will be quite fresh the next
Even though you do not actually
make the sandwiches the night be
fore you may very easily get some
of the things ready. It is well to
get into the habit when you first go
down to prepare breakfast to take
as much butter as you think you
will need for the sandwiches and
set it out so that it will be warm
enough to spread easily when you
want it Bread should be freshly
cut, buttered and filled at once and
then wrapped securely in waxed paper.
F.gg Is Helpful
A wide variety of sandwiches may
be made from egg. One of the easi
est is made by letting the eggs boil
very hard then peeling and cutting
up fine and then spreading on but
tered slices of bread. Some people
like a fried-egg sandwich. Egg with
mayonnaise is delicious.
Waxed paper is so inexpensive
that you have little reason not to be
fairly generous with it It is a good
plan to place each sandwich in a
separate piece of waxed paper and
other things, like cake and deviled
eggs, should likewise each have
their individual piece of waxed paper.

Wheat as Stork Feed.
From a practical livestock-feeding
point of view, wheat is about
equal to corn pound for pound, as
a food for farm animals, says the U.
S. agricultural department Wheat
contains 2H percent more protein
and a little more carbohydrates, and
2'i per cent less fat than corn. The
greater amount of carbohydrates In
wheat is used by animals either as
fuel or energy or is stored as fat.
Moreover, wheat has a very small
quantity of crude fiber, hence ani
mals digest it readily. Wheat, like
corn, is not a complete food. It
does not have sufficient lime, phos
phorous and potash, nor all the pro
tein subdivisions which are neces
sary for animals' development and
their duties. In feeding wheat, as
well as in feeding corn, it is im
portant to feed also those products
which will furnish the portion of
nutritive material that the grain
Onion Growers Suffering.
The Gervais Star declares that

Growers have been offering the fin

loads are yet in the fields and suf

which is published near the Lake
Labish onion fields, says: "For the
past three years barely expenses
have been made, it is said and when
it is known that it costs $150 or
more per acre to produce the on

an acre and that taxes and rental
takes another $150 or more, it can

ces it is almost impossible to plow
and where cultivation has been ac
complished there is not enough
moisture to sprout the seed. Due
also to dry weather the corn and
root crops are suffering severely.
Many farmers are tilling their silos
early because the corn is drying up
and depreciating in food value.
Depression is World Wide.
Twelve per cent reduction in the
amount of creamery butter manu
factured in July in this country and
9 per cent loss in the total produc

ures are available as to the in
creased number of men required in
the dairy business, but in the light
of the above figures, it looks like a
silly argument made by some of
the textile workers for the repeal
of the Volstead Act because, as they
claim, 100,000 men might find work
in breweries, and possibly 2,000,000

figures are correct, the dairy busi

Frank E. Gannett, publisher of

York, but of the whole Union, and
also publisher of sixteen other daily
papers, in a recent interview gave
his reasons for favoring the eigh
He knows the liquor business
from first hand information. When
a boy he worked as an assistant to
a bar keeper. He has had ample
opportunity to observe the workings
of the liquor interests all through
the years. He says that he has
seen liquor make a lot of good men
bad, but never saw it make any
bad men better.
He wonders where the memories
of the older people have gone. There
are bootleggers and speakeasies un
der our present laws; they are mild
in comparison with the corruption
of the old saloon days. The liquor
interests dominated the politics of
the cities and extended its insidious
influence to the state governments
and to congress.
He asserts that the prohibition
laws of today are far better enforc
ed than the regulation laws of a
generation ago. Eleven years of
prohibition have furnished such
marked contrasts to the old saloon
conditions that even the saloon's
best friends have deserted it. As

that prohibition is working for society.
The liquor interests have nothing
to offer in the place of prohibition
except more liquor. They denounce

able solution for the problem. He
says he is not in favor of abandon

of getting something better. He
believes we should make it as diffi

any plan which makes it easier
should be opposed.
