Take the burden of a song,
When it wounds to sing it!

To the starry splendor
Of their high surrender.

Gatty Sellars, the famed pipe or

ganist, will give the first of his two
Ocala concerts at the Methodist
church at 8 o'clock tonight. There
will be no admission charge, but a

free will offering will be taken.

The numbers on the program in

clude the British Patrol, representing

the approach, passing by and gradu

al disappearance of a British patrol,'

and the Storm at Sea. In the patrol

the tramp of soldiers, the drums,

trumpets and military effects are
clearly portrayed. The organist is
declared pre-eminent in such descrip

tive music as the Storm, in which
rain, wind, thunder and lightning ef

fects are obtained.

Comment is frequently made on the
ease with which Mr. Sellars adapts
himself ,to strange instruments for at
times he never sees the organ until
commencing his recital. He usually

plays entirely from memory, some sometimes
times sometimes extemporizing on themes re

quested by his audience.

Airplanes must be lubricated properly to do their work' well.
Castor oil is the only lubricant that will flow freely in high

The government's investigations have shown that the

Florida farmers to engage in their culture.

Authorized contractors for the United States are now mak

Wheat-corn bread is more nutritious
than bread ba ked with wheat flour
alone. Thousands of American fam families
ilies families today are using this mixed flour
bread, and in so doing are enabling
America to provide more wheat flour
for the elites. Here's a tested recipe
for t hi i rtifld: Take one and ahnlf
cup of milk, water or a mixture of
tn two: one-half cake compressed
, yeast, one and a half teaspoons sait.
one tablespoon sugar, one taDiespoon
of fat if ileslred, one cup corn mea!
and two cups wheat flour.
Put one and a 'half cups of water,
the cornmeal, salt, sugar and fat .(if
used) Into a double boiler and cook
twenty minutes. The water Is suffi sufficient
cient sufficient only to soften the meal a little.
Allow the meal' to cool to about the
temperature of the room and add the
flour and yeast mixed with the rest
of the water. Knead thoroughly,
make into loaf, place in pan of stand standard
ard standard size, allow to rise until nearly
fills the jan and bake 45 or 50 minutes.-
It Is hardly practicable to use
a greater percentage of cornmeal than
this even in emergencies, for bread so
made differt very little from baked
mush. Less cornmeal can be used
and In sucn a case the general meth method
od method given above may be followed.
" It is possible to make a yeast raised
corn bread without first cooking the
cornmeal. In this case not more than
one cupful of meal should be used to
four cupfuls of flour. In other re respects
spects respects the bread Is mixed and baked

Arithmetic Once Was Common.
At the time of the colonization of
America In the first half of the seven
teenth century arithmetic was not con
sldered essential to a boy's education
unless he was to enter commercial life
or certain trades. The Instruction In
arithmetic was often given In another
school, called a writing school, or a
reckoning school. When arithmetic
was taught In the grammar school It
was very rudimentary. Not only was
this true, but among the nobility ana
the aristocracy of the educated, arith
metic was looked upon as "common,"
"vile," "mechanic because it was the
accomplishment of clerks, artisans,
tradesmen and others who bore no
sign of heraldry. Consequently it was
beneath the dignity of a boy unless he
was less capable of learning and fit fittest
