The great trouble-with syrup has
been that ivhen made thin enough not

summer and when made thick so as
to prevent fermentation fit would
turn to sugar. Either trouble is an
obstacle to handling syrup in bulk and
has made necessary the practice of
using air-tight containers with pro proper

involves the use of a little extract of
yeast when the cane juice is boiled

it to stand unfinished, for twelve

As the time approaches for the
Fourth Roll Call of the American Red
Cross, which takes place from Novem November
ber November 11 to 25, many people all over
the country are asking how their last
year's membership fees have been
spent and what are the organization's
plans for the fuurel Full statements
have been made from time to time,
and the financial records of the Red
Cross both in the chapters and for na national

public, but many people have neither
time nor inclination to study them,
and the simple statement hat public
health nursing is one of the most im important
portant important phases of the Red Cross pro
? gram means little to a person who has
not made a special study of the work.
It is necessary to understand just
what a Red Cross public health nurse
means to some specific community to
realize the Importance of what the or?
ganization is doing. Take the little
mountain town of Highlands, N. C
for instance, a summer resort with a

dred hundred people, situated on a table-land
. on the side of a mountain, eighteen
miles from a railroad over roads that

, are practically impassable tor" about!

has no hospital, no dentist, no trained
nurses and only one physician, bpt
' it has a Red Cross chapter. And la6t
".year, the Red Cross- Chapter applied
, for a public health nurse, that is.; a
graduate trained nurse who has taken
special post-graduate training in pub public
lic public health work. The Nursing Depart Department
ment Department of the Southern Division sent
"Miss Margaret Harry, a nurse who
had been trained under a Red Cross
scholarship and who thoroughly un-

One of Miss Harry's first moves af

people and won their confidence was
to open a Health Center. Health Cen Center

to the person who has not-seen one

One-of the most interesting 'of the

meetings that the business woman's

their club rooms. There were quite

few members present, some new

members .and for the first time since

he rlnVs nrca nidation initiation took

Tplace, which wa3 very cleverly carried

out by the initiation committee. The

two who were shown this cordial re

ception were Misses Margaret Tay

The club rooms was unusually cozy,

with the new curtains, chairs' and

desks, the-liberal gift of Mrs; E. A

Osborne. For a club so young this
one has progressed rapidly and

greater things that will be aof. much
benefit to the club are expected to be

accomplished this winter.

Each year thi3 club enjoys a big

banquet and the one being planned

for. the next meeting -is being antici anticipated

and it will be quite an elaborate af affair.

There were matters discussed

reading especially of big heavy vol volumes,

to the eyes, bead and neck, but also
to the, arms anct hands. '. J ; J
Mr. Wlnslpw's Idea 4 is to print a.
book so that you read straight ahead
from right-hand page to right-hand
page, these being, numbered consecu consecutively
tively consecutively ; then, when you have read
t&rough to the last right hand page,
you turn the book upside down and
continue reading as before," what in
ordinary books are left hand pages
now being right-hand pages. .This, of
course. Involves printing all left hand
