Steel Helmet Inventor Dead.
The man who saved numberless lives
through his Introduction of the steel
helmet In the World war died recently
In Paris. He was Doctor Monprofit, a
member of the chamber of deputies of
Krnneo and a veteran of the French
ambulance corps. Had the war con
tinued it ls very possible that the
struggling armies would have gone out
In steel body armor as well as hel
mets, for the plans of Doctor Mon
prollt for the tise of breastplates of
steel bad been practically uerfected at
the time of the armistice. Doctor Mon
profit conceived the Idea of the "tin

roared a squire In a New England
town, "that he's a blinked fool, and
that he's to come here right away and

The apprentice vanished, and a few
minutes later the boss carpenter ap
peared, aching for a fight.
"Do I understand," he bellowed,
"that you told my apprentice that 1
was a blinked fool?"
"Why, yes," replied the squire,
beaming. "Didn't you want him to
know It?" American Legion Weekly.

There are 80,000 young Americana

of them are hundreds of thou

friends and relatives. Many of them
can do nothing but read to pass away
The American Legion auxiliary,
composed of the wives, mothers and
sisters of service men, is endeavoring
to hnve personnl, cheerful letters
written to these men. Now the Legion
Is trying to have people in the men's
home towns send the home-town
newspaper to them, either every day
or every week.
There are not more than five or six
ex-scrvlce men from nny nverage-slzcd
town In hospitals, the Legion esti
mates, and asking newspaper cdltorc
to send free copies of their papers to
their home-town boys in hospital is
not asking too much, nor more than
citizens would be willing to do. The
Legion ls forwarding to its officials in
each state lists of names of men from
thut state in hospital, and asking that
local newspaper edltora send their pa

WAYS WITH AVOCADO
avocado, or nlllgator pear.
Is commonly called, Is tho
most delicious of
foods, but is not,
yet grown in such
quantities ns to
make them inex
pensive. In south
where they aro
beginning to grow
them, In season of plenty they enn
be bought for twenty to thirty cents
apiece, but in the east and central
states thay reach u price which the
ordinary pocketbook holder feels pro
hibitive. Having proved that this
choice food can be produced commer
cially in u wide area, we have promlsa
of enjoying them at a more reason
Tho avocado belongs to the laurel
family and. Is a native of semi-tropical
America, whence It has spread to all
other tropical Countries. The tree Is
an ornament with its Inrge leathery
leaves of spicy taste and odor, and
under favorable circumstances attains
n height sixty to eighty feet. It
bears prollflcally. Tho fruit varies
in shape from round to pear shape,
Is green and purple In color, weighs
often four to live pounds, but tho
average Is much Mess. Tho fruit con
tains a single Inrge seed around which
Is the thick, buttery flesh of yellowish
green color nnd a delightful flavor.
Some varieties have r. very thin' skin,
others a thick, hard shell. These last
handle tiost In shipping.
The dietitians tell us that the avo
cado Is almost In a class by Itself, as
It has a greater mineral content than
any of the fruits and contains 50 per
cent of carbohydrates, while Its fat
content Is nearly .'10 per cent. Tho
only fruit comparable to it is the
olive, which has less oil und Is as wo
know n processed fruit. Measured in
calories, tho 28 varieties uvernge 081
calories to tho pound, more than twice
the maximum calories per pound of
fresh fruits. Its fuel value corre
sponds to nbont 75 per cent of that
of cereals and Is nearly twice that for
nverngo of meat, according to Pro
Brazilian Paste. Mash rlpo nvo
cado and mix smooth with lemon Juice.

SCIENCE ON FARM
Agriculturist of Today Must
Know Business Thoroughly.
Canadian Tillers of the Soil Have
Proved That Old Days of Hap
hazard Methods Have Gone.
Agriculture In Canada bus the sta
tus of u profession which both its high
standard of operation and the prlmo
place it occupies In national life Justi
fy. The days when land was casually
tiled on and farmed without nny in
telligent understanding of agricultural
processes aro going with tho dwindling
availability of the laud, and rapidly
passing is tho epoch of the destruc
tion of soli values, and the abandon
ment of fnrms which have been ren
dered unproductive.. Clearer nnd clear
er has become the realization that
farming Is a specialized profession re
quiring special training, and In the
place of this spoliation thcro Is an
Intelligent system of crop rotation,
preservation of Uio virtue of tho land,
a discovery of tho nobility of tho
farmers calling and a determination
to secure and achieve tho best pos
sible in everything.
The Education of the Farmer.
Agricultural colleges, experimental
farms, government literature, rnllwny
propaganda, nil in nn appreciation of
tho national benefits which accrue,
contribute to tho education of tho
farmer who, if ho starts out in igno
rance, speedily discovers tho futility
nnd prolltlessness of continuing in
this state. It Is oqly of comparatively
recent years that farming in Canada
has become the comprehensive nnd ex
haustive study it Is and Its tenets
been so widely absorbed, nnd older
farmers who have followed haphnzard
methods or systems scientifically un
sound are gradually forced from neces
sity Into an Intelligent study und ap
plication of their profession.
This brings us to the city man who
ls anxious to leave his old life for tho
greater freedom of tho country nnd
tnko n farm for himself, and, the fore
going holding good, he need not follow
far behind tho older farmer If ho tako
up tho study of his work seriously,
bring energy nnd Intelligence to benr
upon n following out of the systems
of experienced nnd successful agricul
turists, and utlllzo tho results of tho
expert Investigation and research tho
Dominion places nt his disposal! Tho
whole country ls working for him nnd
YHAT there are Physicians who specialize on Infant ailments you know. All
Physicians understand Infant troubles: all Physicians treat them. It is his
profession, his duty, to know human ills from tho Stork to tho Great Beyond.
But in serious cases he calls in the Specialist. Why? He knows as every
Mother knows, or ought to know, that Baby is just a baby, needing special treat
ment, special remedies.
Can a Mother be less thoughtful? Can a Mother try to relieve Baby with
a remedy that she would use for herself? Ask yourself; and answer honestly!
Always remember that Baby is just a baby. And remembering this yoU
will remember that Fletcher's Castoria is made especially for Infants ani

the hovico hns almost nn equal op
portunity with the farmer of n life
A census. of Cnnndlnn farmers would
probably show that fully one-half are
not farmers' cons and wero not
brought up to the life of tho farm. Yet
none would criticize Canada's farmers
on tho score of poor farming methods
in general, the excellency of their
crops with International honors nnd tho
universal demand for their live-stock
products refuting this effectually. Sig
nificant ls It, too, that practically nil
the farmers who have achieved the
most signal honors at International
farming competitions havo not been
lifelong farmers, but city men who,
taking to tho land after reaching ma
turity without the remotest previous
knowledgo of agricultural activities,
have through Intelligent study and
closo application of the best farming
methods surpassed the efforts of those
ngrlculturlsts who havo continued do
ing things on tho farm in tho way
their fathers used to do them.

Advertistogby the use of large space, the expenditure of huge sums
of money have placed on the market, have putinor home, perhaps,
many articles that today have been discarded, ns you will readily admit.
Do you recall anything that has more modesUy appealed tp tho
public than has Fletcher's Castoria: modest in aU its claims, pleading
at all times and truthfully for our babies?
The big splurg, the misleading claims may win for a time, but
the honest truth-telling advertiser is like the old story of the tortoise
that beat the hare.
Mothers everywhere, and their daughters, now mothers, speak
frankly, glowingly, enthusiastically in praise of Fletcher's Castoria.
Speak of it lovingly as a friend that has brought comfort, cheer and
smiles to their little-one.
To them: to these true mothers no argument can induce them
to set aside their bottle of Castoria, their old friend, that they might
try even another and unknown remedy for babies. Then, would YOU
think of going to YOUR OWN medicine chest to find relief for Baby's
troubles? Can you not separate the false from the true?
