Unusual Significance of Flag Day.
Flag day is an event of unusual importance
this year. The Stars and Stripes are again mov
ing to the battle front to lead the way to freedom
for oppressed peoples. No scream of the eagle
is heard, but the deep and resolute note of a
strong nation aroused in its might, in the sound
of which may always be distinguished the doom
of tyranny. The day should therefore bring an
enthusiastic climax to the drive for the sale of
the Liberty bonds, a pledge by America to the
world of devotion to the cause. In Nebraska it
will witness the conclusion of the state's jubilee
celebration with such ceremonies as properly de
note the vigor and strength of an established
commonwealth. Throughout the land Flag day
will have a significance this year beyond that of
any since the occasion was particularly so desig
nated, and as such will be observed by an aroused,
united and patriotic people, who will renew today"
pledges given to posterity by our fathers, and by
us to be handed on to ages yet to come, of all
that self-government means to man,
Drying Fruits and Vegetables

Washington, June 11. Those who cannot ore
serve food by canning it this summer can dry it,
This is what Europe has done for the last two
years, and now it is our turn. It is up to the man
of the family to get out his check book or his
saw and screw driver and produce a drier. Fil

form of drying apparatus is not an easy job, but

King Constantine's Downfall.
King Constantine of Greece has been tumbled
from a throne on which he has for months bal
anced like an acrobat on a swaying wire. His
pro-German tendencies were his undoing. With
no ability as a statesman or craft as a politician,
he signally failed as head of the Greek nation at
a time when both strength and wisdom were re
quired. Since the outbreak of the war Constan
tine has been out of touch with his neighbors and
his late allies, preferring for his own reasons to
favor the side espoused by Bulgaria, with whelm
he was but lately engaged in desperate battle, and
so found himself unable to make headway against
the pressure of events.
The interest of Greece lies with the entente
allies, a fact clearly foreseen by Venizelos, who
has shown himself far too clever a manager for
tne deposed king. The combat between the i
former premier and the king has been fierce and
unremitting and has ended in moral if not mate
rial endorsement of the position taken by Veni
zelos in 1914. The presence of Greece in the war
The type of home-made drier which is now
being used extensively in the south, where the
Department of Agriculture has been stimulating
interest in drying, is one that can be used on a
wood or coal range or a kerosene stove, and is
easy to make. The botton is made of a piece of
galvanized sheet iron twenty-four inches long by
sixteen inches wide and six inches high. Upon
this base is built a framework of thin strips of
wood thirty-six inches apart, which act as cleats
to hold the trays of food. The framework is then
covered with galvanized iron, and you have the
drier complete except for the trays, a door with
hinges and another sheet of iron perforated and
a little smaller than the base which is suspended
by wires a couple of inches above the base, pre
venting the direct heat from coming in contact
with the product and serving as a radiator to
more evenly spread the heat.
An electric fan placed in front of an oven or
this form of drier is one of the most effective dry
ing devices. The trays for this drier are also made
of a frame of thin strips of wood to which is
tacked a sheet of galvanized screen wire, which j
forms the bpttom of the tray. It is best to make
me trays inree mclies shorter than the drier it,

The indications are coming strong that the
June weddings of this year 1917 are going to be
quite up to the ten-year average. It is possible
it teems even probable-that this June is going
to be a mattimonial record-breaker. Is the war
csll operating in way of a matrimonial hurry call?
Very likely and naturally so. Weddings that are
planned should be consummated. The weddines
will not interfere with the selective draft and the
selective draft should not interfere with the wed
dings. June is traditionally and as a matter of his
tone record the wedding month superlative All
months are wedding months brides bloom every
month in the year but June is the month when
clouds are highest up in the air, when a deeper
ini colors the burnished dove and when the young
man t fancy turns to thoughts of love. So Mr
Tennyson June is the month when the world is
young. The coming of the June brides is just as
normal, just as much a part of nature's beautiful
and wisely ordained scheme as it the blooming of
the roses. .
Down below the equator, where the season.
are reversed. December is the month superlative
ot rotes, nesting birds and blushing brides. Which
goes to show that approximately all the poets,
though not all the brides, have blossomed north
of the equator. Think of a poet celebrating De
