S. - From theological seminary to naval aviation school from the position of student in a school which was preparing him to spread the gospel of the Prince of Peace to that of instructor in a school that teaches men the arts of war such has been the experience of Jesse L. Murrell, a Champaign county "boy.1' At nresent he is emoviner a ten days' furlough visiting home and friends wearing the uniform of a second class petty officer of the United States navy. Mr. Murrell, whose home is on Rural Uoute 6, was a student at Drew theological seminary and accepting tbe call of the Y. M. C. A., went to Louisville, Ky'. In December last in that city he offered his services to his country and was acceptedand was sent to the Great Lakes naval aviation school, when it opened in' February, where he was soon made an instructor of mechanics.

Articles have been published in Indianapolis paper, giving accounts of the wonderful record of Dr. 'Fayette Page, a native of Columbia and a brother of Mr. Jas. T. Page, who is with base hospital, No. 32, in France. What is making Dr. Page famous, he has discovered a remedy which cures soldiers' who have been gassed. Every man he has treated recovers, and one man who did not receive it, died. He uses a very interesting method burns the throat, and different hospitals have sent physicians over to watch him operate. The burns are dreadful. Externally they are like any burn, but internally they are especially dangerous, as the poison and sepsis travels terough the system before the man may have perceived that he is burned.

"When people ask me, How shall we teach our children to love nature?' I reply: 'Do not try to J' teach them at all. Just turn them loose in the country and trust to luck.' It is time enough to answer children's questions when they are interested enough to ask them. Knowledge without love does not stick; but if love comes first, knowledge Is pretty sure to follow. I do not know how I first got my own love for nature, but I suppose It was because I was born and passed my youth on the farm, and reacted spontaneously to the natural objects about me. I felt a certain privacy and kinship with the woods and. fields and streams long before the naturalist awoke to 2eIdence Phone 13 B Business Phoe 1 within me.

Before the war Germany, Austria-Hungar- y and Russia produced 57 per cent of the total supply of beet sugar, d about of the entire sugar supply of the world. With the withdrawal of sugar exports of these heavily producing countries It Is easy to see why the allies' supply of sugar has shrunk. The one thing we can do In this country Is to Increase our production and decrease our consumption, to change our sugar habits until the war is over. In practically all dishes requiring sugar some other sweetening may be substituted. The sweetening power of sirups varies somewhat, so that will have to be taken Into account. Honey is about as sweet as sugar, but when it Is used the liquid In the dish will need to be decreased. Maple sirup Is sweeter than sugar and corn sirup less sweet. When substituting sirups for sugar decrease the liquid Dried fruits of various kinds, when added to any cereal or pudding decrease the amount of sweetening one-thirone-fourth. drying plants have been in successful or government-owne- d operation in European countries for years. Such plants provide village communities with a convenient and simple method of drying all sorts of produce of the home garden and orchard, as well as the vegetables and fruits shipped to the community, which might be allowed to go to waste at the stores and market places. The drying plant described in the bulletin follows closely the specifications of a community plant at Lincoln, Neb., and 11 others in that general section, all of which were operated successfully during the summer and fall of 1917. The advantage to the busy farmer's wife in the country community cannot be overestimated, says the bulletin. Her work is heaviest in the summer when vegetables and fruits must be saved for winter use. The establishment of a community drying plant at a consolidated school, country church, or centrally-located farm home would offer a great relief from heavy kitchen duties. I.

Jade carvmg, lacquered shrines and carved wood jewel boxes will not help win the war, in the opinion of the American government, but tin cans and garbage will. In its steady progress toward elimination of the great American waste, the government has put the three former Items on the restricted imports list. The latter items are being looked after by other departments of the government. Tennis rackets, tennis, golf, base, g and bowling balls; almond flour used In cosmetics; metal vases and similar luxuries also, are on a newly Issued restricted Imports list. The department of agriculture announces that if you do not throw away your tin cans, but save them to can the kaiser, you may make some money. If you gather 7,000 or 8,000 of them, free from rust, you may get $12 for them, according to quotations furnished by a smelter. So worried has the government become about the sinful waste of garbage In this country that the food administration has issued an appeal to the housekeeper, saying: "One ton of garbage contains: "Sufficient gylcerlne for 14 shells. "Sufllclent fatty acid for manufaccakes of soap; ture of 100 sufficient fertilizer elements to grow eight bushels of wheat; a score of other materials valuable in munitions making.

The big show itself will be all ready in gala attire for the launching on Monday, and few could want a more picturesque sight than the great exe order hibition as it rests in for the activities of the week days. The myriads of departments and shows will be ready for the review of the crowds and the awarding of premiums ; the decorations will be at their crisp-est- ; the stock placidly in line; the amusement features available to the well-knowworld-famoucap-a-pi- visitors, ana the whole as spick and span as a regiment on parade. The concert which will be offered by Thaviu's Band, his vocal stars and the feature singers of the Louisville Jubilate Choral Association will be an elaborate affair. Splendid in arranging the attraction has been given the Fair by Fred. O. Neutzel, one of Louisville's singers and music patrons, and the voices to figure in the Jubilate Chorus will include such noted singers as Flora Marguerite Bertelle, Marie Siedfried, Leo Sandman and Fred O. Neutzel. The flights of Ruth Law will be two in number on Sunday, as well as twice daily on the week days of the Fair. Miss Law, who has won world-widfame by reason of her aerial work, as well as by the splendid service she has rendered the United States Government in enlistment campaigns and Red Cross crusades, will give what promises to be the most thrilling exhibition of her career. She will go after the altitude record and will attempt to out-deven her own dizzy score in looping-the-loobest-know- n e o No more sensational, thrilling or Inspiring sight could be imagined than Ruth Law's aerial performance in her Curtis biplane, in which she soars high above the clouds, or skims like a dipping swallow almost within reach of the earth as she spirals, loops, rideB s taxi banks, and volplanes, and visitors to the sixteenth annual Kentucky State Fair, which will be held in Louisville the week of September will be electrified twice daily during the week and twice on Sunday preceding the Fair by this peerless wonder of the air. The Sunday flights, in which Miss Law will go after the altitude record and her own wonderful score, are part of a special Sunday program, which includes a magnificent sacred concert by Thaviu's Band of forty musicians, his special soloists of international fame, and a massed chorus of over three hundred singers from the Jubilate Choral Association, of Louisville, with Fred O.

The German Crown Prince is now engaged in reconstituting his shattered divisions behind the lines with the aid of the remainder of the 1919 recruits, in the opinion of Gen.

Some of the German" divisions which took part in this battle had their company strength reduced to less that fifty men, some of the companies being still further depleted in numbers.

"Men attending officers' training camps of the United States army or navy at cantonments, camps or forts are in the active military service.

Indian Is That He Lives In Open, . -- BAND 6REAT FEATURE Thaviu Has Been Secured By The State Eats Plain Food Automobile Line. The Regular Line from Columbia to Campbellsville is owned and operated by W. E. Noe. He has in his employe safe and reliable drivers. Transportation can be had at any hour at reasonable rates. t Geswel cf the Anny Chief Manitoweg (White Wings), an Indian evangelist of the Slwash tribe, who has been preaching in churches in Harlem and in New Jersey, told his auditors of the good health and longevity of the Indian. "The Indian," he said, "who lives in his native state on the reservation attains an age that few members of the white race would believe possible. I am aware that my race is rapidly becoming extinct, but this is because so many Indians have followed the mode of life of the paleface and the softening Influences of civilization. I have a sister who is more than one hundred years old, and I know Indians today on the reservations who are more than one hundred, and whose births are a mymatter of record. I am sixty-nin- e self, but my years trouble me not at all. I once knew an 'Indian woman who lived to be one hundred and twenty-eight years old. "I am often asked what Is the secret of the longevity of these Indians. The answer is simple, so long as an Indian will live in the open, drink pure water only and eat plain food. Many such Indians are at their best physically at the age of fifty. The Indian at fifty still has his hair, his teeth and his eyesight, and can run ten miles before breakfast without an effort I was preaching recently at a church in Newark, N. J., and after the service a man came to me and asked of thirty-fou- r why It was that so many Indians had thick hair and were not afflicted with baldness. He remarked that he had never seen a baldheaded Indian. This man himself was as bald as a billiard ball. " I will tell you; my friend,' I told him, 'it is the truth, although you will probably not believe 'me. When the Indian goes to bed he at once goes to sleep; it is different with the white man, who takes his troubles to bed with him, andfalways has something .on his mind.

Historical and Biographical Will that be of Interest to all Readers of the News. BY JUDGE H. C. BAKER. No. 28. -- . The early settlers were largely from Virginia and North Carolina, and many of them were doubtless acquainted with each other back in the old States. They had marched together, camped, and fought together in the war of the revolution. The coming of one brought others, sometimes, individuals, and often whole families, and when they arrived here, they faced similar conditions. The country was a vast forest.

The corn, as it was gathered and hauled from the fields, was thrown into a shed adjacent to the crib in two lots of as nearly the same size as possible. A time was fixed and invitations sent out inviting the neighbors to be present on a designated Preparations were evening. made by the killing of chickens, turkey, shoats, the baking of pies, cakes and the like. On the appointed evening they would come, fathers and mothers, boys and girls, and the negro men of the farms. Leaders were selected for the two piles of corn, who chose their assistants from the men and boys present, and then the contest commenced. At once the walls of the crib would clatter with the falling ears as they were thrown in their place; shouts of encouragement would go up from the leaders, bandying of words back and forth, and as the work advanced, the ne groes would commence in a low tone singing their corn-fiel- d songs; louder and louder it would grow as the corn flew from their hands, until the hills and valleys around were resonant with the corn-shucki- ng irawioiM J m REASONABLE A PRICES m m M m We Now Have a Full Stock of Binders, Mowers, Rakes and and Repairs, at Reasonable Prices. m Full Stock of Wagons, All Sizes, Prices Reasonable We'll say in regard to above that Reasonable Prices in our Judgment can not be offered very long even by ourselves.
