been compiled, and sent out through

. The service flag, its origin, design
and proper display, has been dealt
with by an official bulletin issued re recently
cently recently by the government and compil compiled
ed compiled by Brigadier General Nathan Wil William
liam William MacChesney.
"The service flag," explains Gener
al MacChesney, "is not an official flag
of the United States government, but
is recognized by the government."
: The flag was patented and design designed
ed designed by H. L. Queisser, formerly cap captain
tain captain of the 145th division, United
States infantry, retired, because of
accident. Of the incident Captain
Quiesser himself relates:,
"Shortly after April 6, 1917, when
war with Germany was declared, the
thought came to me that both of my
sons would again be called out, and
wondered if I could not evolve some
sign or symbol by which it might be
known that .they were away in their
country's service, and one which would
be to their mother a visible sign of
the sacrifice her sons were making.
The inspiration of the service flag
came to me in htat manner."
The city council of Cleveland sub subsequently
sequently subsequently adopted the flag, presenting

one to the family in that city of every j states, but no objection is seen to ex ex-soldier

Captain Queisser patented the flag in thereon to those in the service of our

order that the distribution and quail- J allies, at least where they enlisted be be-ty

trolled and to keep it out of the hands j
of irresponsible parties; One-half of

Red Cross.
The Purpose
The basic idea of the service flag is
that there shall be a star to represent
each person serving with the colors.
According to congressional enact enactment,
ment, enactment, the terms "man" and "enlisted
man" means "person," whether male
or female, whether enlisted, enrolled
or drafted into accive service in the
military or naval forces of the United
States, and include non-commissioned
and petty officers and members of
training camps authorized by law.
' Those Eligible
Those entitled, to come under the
representation of the service flag are
described as: All officers and enlisted
men of the regular army, "the regular
army reserve, the officers' reserve
corps, and the enlisted reserve corps;
all officers and enlisted men" of the
national guard and national guard re reserve

raised under the act entitled, "An act

act); all officers and enlisted men of
the navy, the marine corps and -the
coast guard; all officers and enlisted
men of the naval militia, naval re

Non-Combatant Service
Of those in non-comhatant service
General MacChesney justly decides:
The army and navy are vast organ
izationsand competent men in admin administrative,
istrative, administrative, supply, medical and other
non-combatant services are no less
essential than in the combatant serv service,
ice, service, the efficiency of which in large
measure depends upon the adequacy
and efficiency of the former. To draw
invidious distinctions between them is
in most instances unjust. None appre appreciate
ciate appreciate this more fully than the men in
combatant service, who understand
how others in the military service re regard
gard regard it as a hardship and misfortune
not to have the opportunity of dis distinguishing
tinguishing distinguishing themselves at the front. It
is believed that it would be unjust,
even if practical, to determine who
will be protected from danger thruout
the war, to disregard the sacrifice
they are making and their willing willingness
ness willingness for any service, and to. penalize
them by such visible stigma as omis omission

who serve in the zone of the advance
in the war will receive the war war-service

and those not called upon to perform
service there should, it would seem,
at least receive such recognition as is
given by representation on the service
. Household Privileges
When flown from a home a hus husband,
band, husband, father or brother may properly
be represented on the service flag,
even though he did not actually leave
from that household directly to go
into the service, but in case of any
more distant relatives they should
actually be members of the household
where the flag is displayed and have

The Stars Blue, Gold and Silver
A blue star is used to represent
each person, man or woman, in the
military or naval service of the Unit
ed States.
Several methods have been suggest
ed for representation of those invalid
ed, wounded or killed in service. The
following is believed to state the con consensus
sensus consensus of opinion and accepted usage.
For those killed in action a gold
star will be substituted for the blue
star or superimposed on it in such
manner as to entirely cover it. The
idea of the gold star, is that of the
honor and glory accorded the person
for his supreme sacrifice in offering
up for his country his "last full meas measure
ure measure of devotion," and the pride of the
family in it, rather than the sense of(
personal loss, which would 'be. repre.
sented by a mourning symbol, even
though white were to be used instead
of black.
For those wounded in action a sil
ver star- will be substituted for the
blue star or superimposed on it in
such manner as to entirely cover it.
Use of the star in this manner would
be limited to those entitled to the of
ficial wound chevron, which is award
ed to those receiving wounds in action
with the enemy or disabled by a gas
attack, necessitating treatment by a
medical officer.
A Query
Asked by a member of the council
of defense of the Minneapolis division
about the custom governing the silver
star in the relation to wounded and
retired men. General MacChesney has
"We understand that it has been
customary to represent "with a silver
star men who have been wounded or
invalided home but are stil! in the
service, but do not know whether or
not such has ben the practice with
reference to men who have been dis discharged
charged discharged from the service. However,
it seems to me that your suggestion
is a good one, and personally I see no
reason why the silver star should not
be used for all those who have been
in active service and have been dis discharged
charged discharged because of disability acquiW
ed in the service of their country.".

It seems like taking us for fools, in

The first alternative plan proposes
that the state furnish the lands and
then the government will furnish the

To Make Your Shoes Last.
When your shoe, leather gets dry or
hard, you should oil or grease it, says
the popular Science Monthly. To do
this, first brush off all mud and then
wash the shoe in warm water, drying it
with a soft cloth.
While the shoe Is still wet, apply the
oil or grease, rubbing it in with a swab
of wool, or better still, with the palm
of the hand. After treatment, the
shoes should be left to dry in a warm
but not In a hot place. Castor oil is
recommended for shoes that are to be
polished. For plainer footgear, fish oil
and oleine or any one of the less ex expensive
pensive expensive oils may be substituted with
very good results.

In the plan of demobilization it is
evident that the injured and convales convalescent

Home-Made Iceless Refrigerators
Food Can Be Kept Cool in This Inexpensive and
Easily Constructed Convenience

Where Ice Is not obtainable an iceless refrigerator, homemade, will be a
useful food keeper and food' saver. Maintaining a low temperature through
the evaporation of water from Its canvas cover, according to the United
States department "of agriculture, the ,iceless refrigerator 'will keep meats,
fruits and vegetables cool and will extend the period for keeping milk and
butter. It can also serve as a cooler for drinking water. This Is the way to
make it: . :
. A wooden frame is made with dimensions 42 by 16 by 14 inches and
covered with screen wire, preferably the rustless type, which costs little, more
than the ordinary kind. The door is made to fit closely, and Is mounted on
brass hinges, and can be fastened with a wooden latch. The bottom is fitted
solid, but the top should be covered with screen wirer Adjustable shelves can
be made of solid wood or strips, or sheets of galvanized metal. Shelves made
of poultry netting on light wooden frames, as shown in the illustration, are
probatory the most desirable. These shelves rest on side braces placed at
desired intervals. A bread-baking pan, 14 by 16 inches, is placed on the top
and the frame rests in a 17 by 18 inch pan.
All the woodwork, the shelves and the pans should receive two coats of
white paint and one or two coats of white enamel. This makes a very attrac-

tlve surface and one hat can be easily kept clean. The screen wire also
may receive the coats of enamel, which will prevent It from rusting.
A cover of canton flannel, burlap, or 'duck is made to fit the frame. Pnt
the smooth side out if canton flannel is used. It will require about three
yards of material. This cover Is buttoned around the top of the frame and
down the side on which the door Is not hinged, using buggy hooks and eyes
or large-headed tacks and eyelets worked in the material. On the front side
arrange the hooks on the top of the door instead of on the frame and also
fasten the cover down the latch side of the door, allowing a wide hem of the
material to envelop the place where the door closes. The door can then be
(Cpened without unbuttoning the cover. The bottom of the cover should
extend down into the lower pan. Four double strips, which taper to eight or
ten inches in width, are eewed to the tipper part of the cover. These strips
form wicks that dip over into the upper pan.
The- dimensions given make a refrigerator of very convenient size for
household use and one with efficient evaporating enrface, but it Is not neces necessary
sary necessary to follow strictly these dimensions. If a larger capacity Is desired, the
height of the refrigerator can be Increased.
In homes where large quantities of milk and butter are to be kept it
would be well to have one refrigerator for milk and butter and another for
other foods, as milk and butter easily absorb odors' from other foods. It
costs very little to build the refrigerator and nothing to operate it. The
operation Is as simple as the construction. The upper pan should be kept
filled with water. The water is drawn by capillary attraction through the
wicks and saturates the cover. As evaporation takes place, heat Is taken
from the inside of the refrigerator, thereby lowering the temperature, of the
Inside and the contents. Capillary action starts more readily If tile cover Is
first dampened by dipping It In water or throwing water upon it. The greater
the rate of evaporation the lower the temperature which can be assured;
therefore the refrigerator works best when rapid evaporation takes, place.
When the refrigerator Is placed In a shady place in a strong breeze and
the air is warra and dry, evaporation takes place continuously and rapidly
and the temperature inside the refrigerator is reduced. Under Ideal condi conditions
tions conditions the temperature has been known to be reduced to 50 degrees Fahr. When

It is damp and the air Is full of moisture, the refrigerator will not work as

well, since there is not enough evaporation. More water will find Its way to l

the lower pan, but it will be drawn up into the covering by capillary attrac attraction
tion attraction when the air again becomes drier.
The refrigerator should be regularly cleaned and sunned. If the frame framework,
work, framework, shelves and pans are white enameled they can be more easily kept In
a sanitary condition. It is well to have two covers, so that a fresh one can be
used' each week and the soiled one washed and sunned.

Many people have been frightened
by what they have read or heard of
influenza. The more yon fear the dis disease,
ease, disease, the surer you are to get it. As
the disease is spread principally by
contact thru sneezing, coughing or
spitting, many health authorities have
advised that everyone wear a gauze,
which is daily washed and saturated
with a one to five hundred solution of
zinc sulphate in water, and then dried
before wearing over the the nose and
mouth. You should avoid crowds, com common

Keep your strength up by taking lots
of exercise in the open air and plenty
of nourishing food.
If you have any of such symptoms
as chilliness, nasal obstructions, flush flushed
ed flushed face, headache,, feverishness, rest restlessness,
lessness, restlessness, weakness or an irritating
cough, give up your work at once and
go to bed. This will save your
strength to help overcome the disease.
Put your feet in hot water for fifteen
minutes. Thoroughly loosen the bow bowels
els bowels with some such mild and non non-irritating
irritating non-irritating physic as Dr. Pierce's Pleas Pleasant
ant Pleasant Pellets. Drink principally of hot
lemonade and then cover up with
plenty of clothes in bed so as to get a
good sweat. When sweating is free
and the fever reduced take a dose of
two Anuric Tablets every four hours,
followed by drinking at least a glass
or two of hot water. Anuric Tablets
help quickly to relieve the soreness of
the muscles and bones from which
most patients complain and help the
kidneys flush out the poisons.
. To relieve nasal obstructions and
excessive discharge from the noise,
probably nothing is better than a
mild, soothing, antiseptic wash as Dr.
Sage's Catarrh Remedy. It will giv.
great relief. Employed as a gargle,
in same strength as made up for use
in the nose, and as 'hot as can be
