Her women are cultivating her once

from lack of coal and sugar.- The
government has prescribed a war
bread to save wheat. Meat may be
served only once a day, and not at
the evening meal. Waste of bread or
other foodstuffs is a crime.

have begun to train armies to send

United States Greatest Producer
The United States is the world's
greatest producing country. We have
a larger acreage of land in crops than
any other nation. Between ourselves
and Canada we shall probably have a
billion bushels of wheat. We and
Canada need more than half that
amount for our own food and more
for seed 'say altogether 700,000,000
bushels. That leaves 300,000,000
bushels for export. Our allies need
in addition to what they can rai?e at
least 600.000.000 bushels. To meet
this emergency we must cut down our
consumption of wheat. We must
manage to send at least 4o0,U0U,UUU
bushels. If each of us will eat but
save 150,000,000 bushels to add to the
300,000,000,000 above. Even then
our allies' loaf will be a privation

Hague has said, that "gout is rheumatism, and
rheumatism is gout.', If uric acid isformed in excess
within the body it is passed on to the kidneys, which
act as a filter to pass off this poison. If the excess is
not excreted by the kidneys, it is distributed thru the
tissues. The choice sites for such "storage are in the
joints, muscle-sheaths, where the circulation is weak weakest,

Consequently we must do everything to throw off this

the kidneys by drinking six to eight glasses of water

MODERN WAR DISEASE.
Ehell Shock and the Way It Hits and
' 'Afflicts Its Victims.
To the medical profession modern war
nas brought a new disease, known as
hell shock or "shock shell," as the
British war office otiieially calls it.
To understand its cause and action
we must take our place inthe trencues trencues-with
with trencues-with a company ou the first line. An
attack is simineriug and the constant
preliminary hotnharduient of heavy and
light artillery is on.
Shells, shrapnel, high explosives are
rained on theia and on the trench with
Its narrow communication to the sup supports
ports supports in the rear until there is a con constant
stant constant din of tremendous explosions;Yaud
the air is tilledwith noxious gas. Time
has come to seek cover and the soldier
ducks his steel hel meted bead into his
underground dugout, crowds down with
his mates and waits for the storm to
blow over. Hours pass, days pass, some
preliminary bombardments lasting four
or five daya. and food, water, patience
and nerves are exhausted by the awful
din, the noisome air and the crowded
fU8rters with t he ; sickening sights of
nearby men. disemboweled or otherwise
wounded unto death.
Then it is that minds go awry. 'Shell
shock attacks the veterans as well as
the recruits. The poor lads with neu neurasthenic
rasthenic neurasthenic ten Jencies, with poor nervous
reserve or with histories of sapping
excesses and habits, begin to experi experience
ence experience au ever growing fear. Their limbs
start to tremble, their hearing becomes
affected, they, cannot talk or see, and
when they can be rescued in a lull they
have become Jibbering or silent, trem trembling
bling trembling human animals, almost literally
scared to death.
Scientifically, the disease may be di divided
vided divided into two classes. One is the
pseudo shell shock following the course
outlined in men of unstable nervous
equilibrium, deprived of food and made
to fear for their lives; and the second
-class Is true shell shock occurring in
men who really sustain blows of falling
sand bags and planks or are buried in
the upheaval of earth following shell
explosion. Unfortunately the false di division

the total number reported, and 'they
offer the poorest hope of recovery o"
the proper martial spirit which the sol soldier

may, however, slip on then into the
pseudo class and become unfit for ac active

Only When It Strikes th Retina of th

What is the L'em-jnstratlon
of tne fact that light Is invisible? j
The blackness -f a midulght sky

not visible, but only light re Bin-ted 1
from the metis in the beam. This
can 1 1 easily and simply demonstrated
by I-U li: : in ti.j beam a glass vessel

Light Is only visible when It strikes
on the retina of the eye, and it can
only do so wben it reaches it in a di

the bubets from a gun do a man no
harm unless aimed or turned in their
course toward hi body,' so light is
without effect unless it is aimed or
