Somebody recommends making
caramels out of sweet potatoes. We
went in a restaurant some weeks ago
and seeing candied sweet potatoes on
the billyfare, asked for a portion. The
waiter brought us two sections of a
potato, one about as big as our
thumb and the other about as big as
our other thumb and charged us 15
cents for them. As the same amount
of money invested in chocolate cara caramels

there was good money to be made out

The Kaiser and Things American.
Among the Germans generally there
l a surprising degree of-ignorance re regarding
garding regarding conditions In America. The

destructive conflagration in the West West-had

"How does It happen?"
I explained to him that most of the
forest fires came from sparks from
locomotives. Careless lumbermen aln
lowed the branches which they lopped
off the trees to remain on the ground
and when they were ignited by sparks
the fire sometimes spread to the uncut
timber. As the facilities for extin extinguishing

as to just how he should receive an

be shocked at the sort of speeches and
accusations which figure in all your
political campaigns. Over here, noth nothing
ing nothing of the kind is ever heard."
The kaiser was very much interested
in our negro problem. It seemed to
have a great fascination for him, and
he frequently referred to it. He told
me that he understood there were
15,000,000 negroes in this country, but
they were dying off in great numbers
through consumption and other dis diseases
eases diseases to which they offered but poor
"The negro will always be a great
problem In your country, however," he
added, "They don't mix socially with
the whites, and there will be constant
friction. My brother (Prince Henry),
when he returned from his visit to
America, told me a lot about these
negroes. Indeed, one of the most im impressive
pressive impressive things he heard there was a
choir of negro voices. He said they
sang some wonderful melodies, and
their voices were as clear as bells."
After the war started, the kaiser
referred to the negroes again. "Now
is your chance to settle your negro
problem," he declared, half facetiously,
of course. "If America insists upon
coming into the war, why doesn't she
send her negroes across and let us
shoot them down?"
When a fleet of our battleships vis visited

paid them a visit and was very much
interested. When he called to see me
shortly afterward he told me of his

see in them would be to train vines on
them and install an elevator inside,
and serve tea in the afternoon to the
ladles on top the most beautiful place
for serving afternoon tea I can imagine.
"But, seriously speaking," he went
on, "1 can't see that these masts have
any practical value. On the contrary,
I can see very serious disadvantages
in them. No matter what nation you
might be fighting, your enemy would
always be able to recognize you at a

nations look very much alike at a dis distance.

armed," he went on, "but you would
never get close enough to your enemy
to use such small guns. Again, if one
of those masts were hit it would send
a shower of steel about the heads of
the men on board, and would not only
put many of them out, of action, but

the mast were struck don and hung
over the side? It would drag through
the water, and would not only serious seriously

cause the ship to list and expose a
larger area on one side than would be
safe. No, Davis, your fighting masts,
as I have said, might answer first-rate
for serving tea, but I don't think much
of them for active service."
But if the kaiser saw much in
American ways and customs to con condemn,
demn, condemn, he likewise saw much to com commend,
mend, commend, and, before the war, he was
liberal in his praise of many of our
qualities and achievements.

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government

paper, tells howtwo artillery base baseball
ball baseball teams had a spirited game at
Camp Jackson the other day. The
game was between Battery F. and
Battery E. The former won, which is
not to be wonder at when we consider

largest and most energetic bedbugs
ever known in this city. Some of the
roomers have assured us that if they
stayed out after midnight, and many
of them did, they often met their
favorite bugs coming downstairs
looking for them. Some have averred
that the bugs sometimes helped a
helpless person upstairs and to his
room, and were consequently jagged
themselves for several days after, but
we think this is an exaggeration. The
corner lot at that time was occupied
by a nursery, from which about the
