tiny fiame that set fire to a confla conflagration
gration conflagration that long had threatened Eu Europe?

Germans failed to defeat 600,000
Frenchmen at Verdun Do you know
why Germany must and shall be de defeated?

when you speak of the "morale" of
the French army ?
These things and others will be ex explained
plained explained next Friday evening at 8
o'clock from the bandstand by Ser Sergeant
geant Sergeant Marshall of Cedar Rapids, la.,
who speaks here under the direction
of the speakers bureau of the United
States treasury. Sergeant Marshall,
previous to his enlistment as a pri private,
vate, private, served as a first line driven with
the American Ambulance Field Serv Service

tion nation finds itself today. His lecture
was used to arouse the people of the
Middle West before he was sent to
to Camp Cody, N. M., with the Iowa

The purpose of the treasury de department

LOCAL GRIST MILLS
Enterprises that the Food Adminis Administrator
trator Administrator Desires to Encourage
Hon. Frank Clark, House of Repre Representatives,
sentatives, Representatives, Washington, D. C:
Dear Sir: Referring to your letter
of. Feb. 15th to Mr, Whitmarsh, and
confirming conversation this morning
with the writer, there are two ways
in -.which 'the local merchant may
purchase corn meal to balance his
purchases of wheat flour.
First, he may purchase flour from
his usual sources in smaller,, quanti quantities
ties quantities than usual and buy at the same
time an equal quantity of wheat flour
substitutes from the local mills. In
view of the fact that flour distribu distribution
tion distribution is to be limited to 70 of the
usual supply, it will probably be
necessary for this merchant to buy in
smaller lots than heretofore.
Second, the local merchant may
buy wheat flour from his usual source
and contract at the same time for an
equal amount of wheat flour substi-
tutes from the local mill, but only
taking delivery from time to time of
such amounts as can be handled
without wastage. A written statement
of the buyer to the wholesaler that
he has purchased the necessary sub
stitutes is all that is required.
The food administration is exceed
ingly desirous that the small local
grist mills be kept running, and if
the above suggestions do not cover
the case fully we shall be pleased to
take such other action as may be
necessary. Very truly yours,
U. S. Food Administration,

This wOrk, which has be"enr: carried'

on upon a small scfale for SOnlier'ye'ars;
has had a strong iffipetrtiiat the hands

of Dr. Cox, th6 new ted ;of thr state
board Of health, who is Inclined to use

all the means at his rcomntaifd" for

this purpose; and is' receiving' efficient
aid from;afg6od"many physicians to

.various parts of the state. ': ".-

The Star is not-much' givento the7
advocacy' of th6 state aiding1 th indi individual.
vidual. individual. Such' aid tends to atrophy the

iacuity of sell-dependence. However;
it seems good sense and justice to
make an exception in' sttch cases? ; A
strong and healthy' child is an asset
, to the state ; a Weak andf "sickly or
crippled one a liability.' If "the" stato
sees to itvthat a child is in good phys physical
ical physical condition," so milch greater is ;the
chance that the child" will grow into a
strong and iiSefuT man' orJ womaff; and
so much less the chance that the said
child will be a burdetf on tneJ state fns
old age and people1 whd' are" btirdetis"
on their relatives or friends' "ar "also
burdens on' the state.' And anyft&g
that enables the individual 'to better
fill his or her place in life is a greater
help to individtialism; '7
There are how about "a doZeif wards'
of the "state at the-; Marion Cbtmty
Hospital, beside several" whdw have
been discharged either entirely cured
or much benefited in the last few
months;-this hospital bemjntfsern as
the center for the work in this part of
the state some time last summer.
Most of the patients are little ;ehil
dren, and diseased spine? are the
principal trouble.' We an know what
a diseased spine used to1- mean to a
child. It meant years of hopeless and

generally helpless suffering; with no
relief but death, unless the child had
parents able to employ the most skill skilled
ed skilled of specialists, who were not al always
ways always successful in making a cure.
In the past few months, the state
of, Florida .has given a number, .of

children treatment that a multimill multimillionaire
ionaire multimillionaire couldn't have bought; for his
.child not many years ago, cured some,
opened the gate of hope to others and
greatly alleviated the suffering of
yet ethers. : ,, :
Two little boys, suffering from
Pitts' disease of the Spine, now in the
hospital, are showing! good results of
treatment. Had the state. not' taken
charge of these little chaps they
would have become hunchbacks. These
boys, each about six years old, were
strapped. to steel frames, in which
they lived for many weeks until the
crumbling bones in their spinal col columns
umns columns could harden. During this time,
aside from their confinement, they
were comfortable, as the frames pre

vented any of the sudden or involun involuntary
tary involuntary movements, that would have
caused them pain..
Another little fellow had a diseased
bone in his right leg, and would have
been a cripple for Jife. The surgeon
removed the diseased part of the
bone,' and healthy bone will grow into
its place.
Most of the patients, of course, are
little children. There are two cases,
however, that are exceptions. One a
boy of 18 or more; one a girl of 14.
The boy is a vigorous youth, already
efficient at his trade, and ready; to go
into the army as soon as he is needed.
But he has a trouble that rendered
him useless at times, and might have
ended his life at any time. The girl,
almost well enough' developed to tx
a young Woman, and smart enough to
be one, had an ailment that was sap sapping
ping sapping her life. Neither could be called
a charity 'patient, yet neither was
f xxf labte tdpay for treatment; They
could payaomethingso the- state
gave them some help, operations
were performed, and now they are
hopefully waiting" to get well; the boy
anxious' to resume his work, J and the
girl, a-veryi bright scholar in her
school counting .the days to the time
when she can again take up her
studies. V
Surely it is" Vor something to the
state voi Floridfojto help this boy and
girl to become two Very useful people.
During" tbe reporter's visit, the res resident"
ident" resident" physician of the state' board
took Jiim around to see the various
patientSjT all "of whom plainly showed
thatjthejr depended on the doctor as
a" feeble person leans on a strong
staff. The pBysician said that a
fiealthyan.lntoltfgenma
was worth at least $5000 to the state,
and the newspaper man agreed with
him. ; ; .-' .' ' "'

Yet see with joy that tendency abate,
As each new year against my case casement

And leaves his drift among my temple
locks.
For sometimes I have hated hard and
long.
And found, too late, that I had hated
wrong.
I hold, at length, one dominant be be-!

Hate comes but when acquaintance
is too brief. t
So now, when half inclined to nur nurture

Against some one I deem eschews

I let ndt judgment yield unto my

But say: "I do not know him well

To plead the erring human's doubtful

Although my eyes discover only ill,

Quaker Oat flaked from queen grains
only has a wealth of flavor! Right
cooking keeps that flavor intact. It makes
the oat dish doubly delightful makes it
easy to digest.
So we had this Cooker made to our
order an ideal double cooker. It is ex extra

The oily germ is removed, because the oil grows rancid. Just the hominy

The result is superlative corn meal, yellow or white. The yellow looks
like grains of gold the white like marble dust. It makes bread and muffins,
porridge, puddings and pancakes vastly better than any crude corn meal.
Get the Yellow or White in round packages with tops. See how good
