to the experiments of the govern government

leges, colleges, that the peanut meal puts' as
many pounds of weight on the hog as
the peanut with the oil in jt They
also know that the meat is firmer
than when fed the whole peanut. This
makes the -call for the peanut meal a
loud and persistent one. The oil goes
into our oleomargarine, lard com compounds,
pounds, compounds, salad oils and many other
things for man's welfare, and last
but not least in soap to clean that

The Marion Products Company has
heard that call and will have its oil

company will guarantee a bottom
price of not less than one ; dollar a

ns most interesting history: ;
"As most of cmr readers know, the
idea of the Red Cross Was conceived
by a wealthy philanthropist of Swit Switzerland,
zerland, Switzerland, Henri Dunant, who happen happened
ed happened to be in Solferino when the great
battle was fought in 1859. He was
overcome with horror at their suffer suffering,
ing, suffering, and for ten days and nights
ministered personally to. the wound wounded,
ed, wounded, organizing the peasantry into re relief
lief relief : squads, and doing everything
possible to alleviate suffering.' Mr.
Dunant not only wrote books on the
subject, but visited the courts of Eu
rope, enlisting their interest in a plan
for a wo rid society of protection and
service Owing to his efforts, the
first international conference was
held in Geneva in 1863, and the next
year at the famous Geneva conven-i
tion the Red Cross was founded, Au
gust 22, 1864. As the flag of Switzer Switzer-land,
land, Switzer-land, is a white cross on a red field,
out ,of compliment to that country,
where it originated, it was decided to
reverse the Swiss flag, and have a
red cross on a white ground, as a
sign for this ordef.
"It was due to the persistent ef
forts of Clara Barton that the Amer
ican Red Cross was established in
1881, after nearly ten years spent in
what is. now called 'propaganda.' She
was made .first president and it was
due to her that an amendment was
passed including all suffering from
firesi floods," earthquakes, famine and
other, forms of disaster, which amend amendment

One of the most remarkable recent
movements to attain national ; promi prominence
nence prominence is the one that has for its ob object
ject object the pointing out of methods by
which motorists may obtain increased
mileage from their tires. ?
, One would imagine that tire deal dealers
ers dealers would be pleased to have tires
wear out quickly, so that new pur purchases
chases purchases would be necessary. But this
is not generally true. There is more
rejoicing today over one car owner
whose tires run 10,000 to 15,000
miles, than over a hundred whose
lack of care prevents them from get getting'
ting' getting' many miles they are entitled to.
This national tire conservation
movement will reach Ocala Thursday,
January 31, when Tire Demonstration
Day will be observed. Carrying out
the idea of helping all .local motorists
to secure more service from theii
tires, B." F. Condon, of Ocala, has ar arranged
ranged arranged to have an expert from the
Goodyear, Tire & Rubber Company,
present at the demonstration, who
will give an, entire day over to the
consideratfon of the tire problems of
all local motorists, pointing outthe
most insignificant repairs which, if
made in time, will add immeasurably
to tire mileage. The tire difficulties
of each motorist will be given indi individual
vidual individual attention.
Sections of tires will be' exhibited
showing the different kinds of wear
that tires are subject to, and the
methods of combating them. Tire j
construction will be followed from j
the crude rubber of the forest to the
finished tire, ready to start on its
career of service.
There is nothing t mysterious about
tires, and therefore, no good .reason
why motorists"1 should not-know all
about them, and be saved many of
the disappointments they experience
when discarding tires which have
passed away before their time.
