Red Cross Sends
Canteen on Wheels

The Red Cross has this week added
a new and picturesque branch to its
many activities in Italy by sending
two "rolling canteens" to the front.

furnish hot food to soldiers in first
line trenches. Two New York men

The first flour ever ground in New
foundland was recently produced
from wheat grown m that colony,
Newfoundland is so far north that
although wheat had been ripened oc
casionally in previous years under
favorable conditions it was used only
for poultry feeding. Last year, under
pressure for food production, some
very hardy wheat seed was obtained
from the northern sections or west
em Canada and planted in the most
fertile soil on the island. Enough of
this crop ripened to justfy bringing in
a secondhand flour mill from Nova
Scotia, and much larger plantins are
to be made this year.
Nurses Bake Cake
For the Red Cross
We have heard the old Idage of too
many cooks spoiling the broth many
times, but in the case ot the Child
Savings Institute cake a number of
cooks constructed the most luscious
devil's food cake ever seen or tasted.
The nurses at the institute are very
busy people taking care of so many
homeless kiddies and they felt that
they must do something to help the
Red Cross. Someone suggested mak
ing the cake and immediately the
flour, sugar, butter and flavoring
were brought into action and before
you could wink a toothsome chocolate
cake with sparkling white frosting
was ready for sale.
To the stock exchange the pretty
nurses went with their cake and, en
listing the services of a real auction
eer, the cake was put up far sale. You
should have seen the men flock around!
Anyone who thinks that the sterner
ex hasn't a sweet tooth should have
been there. After months of sweet
less days that big cake was not to be
missed. They couldn't wait to bid in
the prescribed way, but actually threw
their money at the auctioneer.
One of the nurses received several
bumps on her head where she was hit
by silver dollars. The lucky man
who got the cake was so afraid that
someone would try to take it away
from him that he hastened away with
his prize and none even knows his
name! And the result is that $335
poured into the coffers of the Red
The nurses who had a finger in the
cake included: Misses Amy. Davis,
Emma Glew, Margaret Davis, Cath
erine Jonescheit, Lois Dixon, Cora
Golbeck, Ershall Fawcett, Mary Fin
ger and Mrs. Carrie Parrish.

The high price of butter has given
opportunity to interest housewives
again in a familiar scheme variously
known as "making two pounds of
butter out of one," "wonderful butter
increaser, or magic buttermaker.
It is generally pointed out that two
pounds of butter can be made out of
one oound of butter mixed with milk,
There is nothing new about this de
vice, according to the dairy depart
ment of the University of Nebraska,
since it has been sold in different
parts of the country off and on for
at least 30 or 40 years.
' According to law, butter must con
tain at least 82 per cent butter fat,
and not to exceed 16 per cent water,
which of course, would not be the
case if skim milk or water were'mixey
with it. It is, therefore, illegal to
offer such a product for sale as but
ter. It is simply another way of add
ing water or skim milk to the butter
the same results might be ac
complished by spreading the butter
about half as thick, as far as actual
nourishment is concerned.
It is remarkable that in the course
of the 18th century women mostly
guided the fates of Russia, while the
male sovereigns could not hold their
own, but usually die violent deaths.
