This announcement is made from

the public may be apprised of pres present

as to what methods are still recom recommended

The restrictions have ; been raised
now rather than ; September 1st as
was originally contemplated, in order
that : the American public may con
sume the medium and lighter grades
of cattle and that the heavier be

our alies.
Various reasons have been found
by the Food Administraton for lift lifting
ing lifting the restrictions, among which' are
the extreme drought in tile southwest
and the other parts of the country and
causing a rush of light weight beef
to market. All heavy beef is for the
present required for war export, and
Mr. Beacham urges .retail dealers to
handle the light weight cattle, espec especially
ially especially the ; Florida cattle wherever
possible. The dealers-should endeav endeavor
or endeavor to secure cattle which dress not
over 475 pounds, and the public eat eating

should order the light weight cuts in
preference to the heavy meats. ; In
doinff this they wil be conserving the
supply of heavier meats, which the
army can use to better advantage and
which can be exported with greater
A great deal of credit for raising

The Star has been investigating the
causes of the recent flurry in cotton
affairs, and finds the following:
There is now little or no market or
Sea Island cotton. The ginners of this
state want the new crop held back
until the old is disposed of. If tht
new crop is thrown on the : market
now, it will knock the bottom out.
Consequently, the farmers are ad advised
vised advised to hold their cotton. The gin ginners,
ners, ginners, except some who may be short shortsighted,
sighted, shortsighted, will help the farmers to care
for their staple. If a farmer has a
good crop of cotton, he will probably
be able to obtain, enough money on it
to meet his obligations, even if it
isn't ginned If it is all ginned now
and thrown on the market, he will
likely find himself in the hole.

A Chinese Girl's Marriage Day
Our wedding day is supposed to be
the happiest day of our whole life.
But a Chinese eirl's weddinsr day is
about the most miserable. For days
beforehand she has been in the hands
of a "dresser,' who soaked her face
in hot water, applied powder and
rouge, dressed ner hair eiaoorateiy
and early on the wedding morning ar
rayed her in heavy satin robes, richly
embroidered, placing a heavy crown
and tinsel veil upon her head. She
cannot partake of any food, she must
fast all day long; every one is at lib-
erty to tease her, examine her clothes
and generally test her temper. There
are clashing of cymbals, playing,
singing and much talking. The poov
child is quite worn out by the end of
the day. To all this tiresome clamor
is added the fact that the bride has
never seen her husband. Of late years
a number of progressive young worn
en in China formed a club, the mem-
filled their pledge.

Medical Explanation of Work Per Performed
formed Performed by Fluid Which Bathe
Brain and Spinal Cord.
. Until very recently the exact role
played by the cerebro-splnal fluid
that watery substance which bathes
the brain and spinal cord was not
understood. But nowadays it Is, a
common .practice among surgeons to
squirt drugs Into the tissues contain containing
ing containing this fluid or to draw out a drop or
two of It for examination.
The Journal of the American Medi Medical
cal Medical Association, commenting on an ad address
dress address by Dr. W. D. Halliburton be before
fore before the Royal Society of Medicine,
says, he describes the cerebro-splnal
fluid as an ideal physiologic solution
in which the exquisitely sensitive nerv nervous
ous nervous system is always bathed.
This fluid does not, like the lymph,
arise from the blood by exudftion of
serum through the walls of the capil capillaries,
laries, capillaries, but is the product, of the se secreting
creting secreting cells of whatare called the
choroid plexuses in the ventricles of
the brain. The pressure under which
the fluid always exists is due to the
secretory pressure of these cells and
not to the blood. And there are
scarcely any proteins found in it.
Halliburton says that in order to keep
out the harmful proteins, which would
poison the nerves,' the harmless ones
also are almost completely excluded.
The membranes that line the spaces
In which the fluid is found seem to
permit substances to pass from it to
the blood, but to be impermeable (ex (except
cept (except for oxygen) in the direction from
the blood to the fluid. The value of
this arrangement is that when poi poisons
sons poisons enter the blood, as they do so
easily, they are kept .away from the
delicate nerves.:

It would appear that Alexander Sel Selkirk's

Nicholas to the mainland. Among
them was a mother who discovered
that her babe had been left behind.
She begged that the vessel might be

She then leaped into the sea to swim

Eighteen years afterward a company

When Dog Sought His Master.

Americans Asked to Use No More Than
Two Pounds Per Person
Per Month.

Shortage May Last Until Beginning of 1919,
When New Sugar Crop Arrives.

After making a careful survey of the
world sugar situation the U. S. Food
Administration has asked the Ameri American
can American public to USE NO MORE THAN
SON PERSON A MONTH until January 1, 1919.
Increased sugar demands from the
Allied nations-where the present sug sugar
ar sugar ration Is already reduced to the
lowest possible level and th need of
keeping our army and navy supplied
are two of the leading causes of the
curtailment of America's sugar ration.
Americans are requested to make
two pounds ofisugar per person (half
a pound a week) serve for all sugar
uses in the household- including cook cooking
ing cooking and all sugar served at the table.
Public eating places, as well as
housewives,' will be required ti limit
their use of sugar to two pounds for
every ninety menls served. In the
U. S. Food Administration's cafeteria
at Washington, where employees of the
Food Administration take their noon
meal, one pound of sugar la used for
every 120 meals served.
The U. S. Food Administration is
confident that the American public will
heartily agree to reduce household use
of sugar fhere to a level more nearly
equal to the present restrictions
among the Allied nations.
The situation which the United
States faces in its efforts to maintain
a fair distribution of sugar to the Al Allied
lied Allied world is as follows:

Counting the American, Allied and
German-Austrian crops, as well as the
neutrals, the U. S. Food Administra Administration
tion Administration has estimated that the world
shortage created by the light crop of
1917-1918 is at least three and a half
million tons.
That the 1917-1918 crop of can sug sugar
ar sugar was two million tons in excess of
the previous year does not relieve the
general shortage. : ;

In Java a large part of the old sbgar

It requires 150 to 160 days for each
boat that Is sent to Java, the possibili possibilities
ties possibilities of obtaining adequate shipments
of Java sugar this season are. remote.
Allies' Production Falls, v
Taking the Allied nations as a group,
official reports show that beet sugar
production is less by one-third than the
pre-war average.

yield of beet sugar is now only 29.1

; For the five years preceding the out outbreak
