There is whole realm of sand
wiches unguessed by the majority of
people who limit themselves to a few
familiar kinds.. A . sweet sandwich
lends itself to a variety of uses. It is
' -: delicious with a beverage or with a
fruit salad; it is equally good on a
picnic. j- i " - ?
. One special point in favor of sweet
sandwiches now is that the, kinds of
read that are especially adapted may
be entirely wheatless. Nut bread may
be used merely with a little butter
or a thin spread of tart jelly; brown
bread,plain or with a few nuts or
raisins is good for sweet sandwiches

The woman's committee of the

under the management of Miss Mary
T. Cogil, is making such a fine cam
paign for recruits for ' the ' training
school hospitals, is in receipt of the
following new ruling on nurses:
For the first time in the history of
the army nurse corps of the United
States, women are sent into the field
with the same equipment as the offi
cers, according to Captain J. P. Yo

at Washington, D. C. They will be

as the men, being housed in tents
and eating at a mess furnished from a
These women are the nurses as
signed to travel with the United
States mobile hospital units. Each
section of the unit contains a com

trucks and will be accompanied by 10
army nurses, five of thesi sections

The purpose of a mobile hospital
unit is to carry the operating room
to the injured man to insure the
minimum loss of life which might be
incurred by1 a tedious transportation

"Frequently these units will be eS'
tablisncd within five miles of the

Yoder. "Each nurse will carrv the
typical outfit of an officer, comolete
from field kit of aluminum utensils
to a canvas bed roll. It is estimated
that within two hours a complete
operating room can be assembled
from the trucks of a single section.

t Yesterday w. told how Peggy, made tiny
. through the' favor of the Wishing Rose,
went sailing through the air on her toy air
plane and how a strange feathered creature
had o frightened her that she had lost con
trol of the plane and It had plunged, somer
saulting toward the earth.
n EGGY held her breath as the air-
17 plane whirled dizzily downward.
Desperately she leaned bacK. mar is
ust what she should have done, for
the machine promptly righted itself
snd soared safely upward again away
from the threatening ground. . .
"What are you trying to do?
shrieked the shrill voice again, ...
Peggy ducked and the airplane, obe
dient to her every move, ducked too.
The feathery something wheeled
about her curiously.
"Why, it's the swallow'" cried
Peggy, astonished to find that the
bird, which had seemed so small from
down below, was now as big as she.
For a moment she had forgotten
about eating the leaf of the Wishing
Rose. , r
-"Of course I'm the swallowMr.
Swallow, if you please," responded
trie Dira, ranging alongside, um
are vou?" . -
"I'm a little girl," answered Peggy..
"Stuff and nonsense! contradicted
Mr. Swallow impolitely. "Whoever
heard of a girl flying? Why, girls
don't even dare climb trees. You re
some kind of a new, bird, but I'll be
Mowed if I know what kind.
"I'm not a bird. I'm a little girl
ridine an airplane.
"An airplane -that's the kind of a
bird yon" are, one of those awkward
thines that make such a fuss about
flying and then land with a foolish
crash and a bumo."
. JTm not an airplane. I'm just rid
ing an airplane, explained Peggy in
-. Mr. Swallow looked her over
critically. "Ah, I see. How funny 1
And who are you, anyway?
I am Princess Peggy, she an
"What!" shrieked Ms, Swallow, so
surprised that he stopped short in the
air and took a long, fall before he
knew it. In another moment he was
frantically chasing after Peggy.
"Oh, your Majesty, forgive me, for
give mel" he cried. "I didn't know it
"You 'are ' very rude," answered
Peggy severely. . '
"I humbly crave your pardon,"
begged Mr. Swallow. "We didn't
know you -were coming today. And
I'd never seen a princess before."
"How should you know I was com
ing?" Peggy was now curious.
"Because all the birds have been
waiting for a princess to deliver them
; from the Giant of the Woods. Cornel
Come, quickly 1" cried Mr, Swallow,
" setting off at a terrific rate.
"Here, here, you've made a mis
take!" called Peggy, but the swallow
only flew the faster, shrieking back,
"This way I Come, come!"
Here was an ,. adventure Peggy
hadn't been counting upon. An en
counter with a giant! She didn't like
the idea at all. ' But it did sound ro
mantic, and well,, Peggy's curosity
was aroused and the airplane fol
lowed swiftly in the swallow's wake.
Over the town, lake, fields and
marshes they flew, beating even a
fast train puffing- along below. Final
ly they came to a large forest over
whieh they skimmed until they reach
ed an open glade. The swallow darted
into the, glade and Peggy followed,
the airplane alighting softly on a cush
ion of moss. , " I - t '
Peggy looked around her delight
idly. -Never had she seen such a
charming woodland spot. It looked
like .' a fairy palace, with tall trees
as stately pillars, heavy vines as
tapestry and flowery mounds as furni-1
Mr. Swallow was out of sight, but
Peggy could hear him , shrilly an- j
Bouncing his strange news: "The
princess has -come: The princess has
tomel" , -r' . -.
She started to follow him, but of
a sudden she stopped still. She had
come upon a dainty, swaying cradle
of twigs half hidden in a bush. Fast
asleep in the cradle were three cute
"Oh, aren't they dears!" she cried.
Her voice awakened the birdies and
their eyes popped wide open. So, too,
did their beaks, which they spread so
wide that they looked all mouths and
nothing else. i
"Mammal" they chirped feebly.
"We're so hungry."
"Why, you poor little mites, you
look half starved," exclaimed Peggy,
who now saw that while at first glance
their fluffy down made . them seem
fairly sleek, they were really only
skin and bones.
"Mamma, mamma," moaned the
bird babies, sinking back in a hope
less, helpless sort of way that brought
a lump to Peggy's throat. "Mamma,
please come home!" ,
"There, there, perhaps she'll come
sodn," said Peggy soothingly. "I
wish I had something for you to eat."
Then Peggy remembered her lunch.
"Why, I have something. Here are
Diving down into her knitting bag
she brought out sandwiches daintily
wrapped in paper. Each little beak
opened wide. Peggy broke up the
sandwiches and popped the morsels
into the yawning mouths. My, how
fast the bird babies gulped them down
as if they hadn't eaten in a week!"
"Give us some, tool" chirped tiny
voices nearby. Peggy glanced about.
There were dozens of nest cradles hid
den in the bushes and in each nest
were hungry bird babies with their
mouths appealingly open. A tiny
Thrush spoke up : "Please, we haven t
had any breakfast since day before
yesterday, nor any dinner, nor sup
per either. We're awful hungry 1"
"I should think you would be, an
swered Peggy, setting vigorously to
work feeding her sandwiches into all
the waiting mouths. "My gracious, I
think your mothers are awful care
less to leave you birdies starving like
this. Have they gone to the club?
They ought to have been home long
"Their mothers will never come
home," chirped a motherly Robin who
at that moment alighted on a nearby
'. anch to divide a juicy worm
among a nestfull of Goldfinches. .
"Why, are they dead," asked Peg
gy in a hushed voice.
"Worse than dead," answered Mrs,
Robin with a shudder. Creeping close
to Peggy she cautiously whispered:
"They are prisoners of the Giant of
the Woods, doomed to an awful fate
unless the princess Comes quickly to
rescue them!" -
Tomorrow It will be told how Peggy is
crowned Princess of the Birds, and la called
upon to rescue the captives from the dun
geons of the Giant of the Woods.

My Hat Diary
Well, honestly, yesterday, when
i arove out with "Peggy" in her
car and saw her cute costume I
almost became jealous. It was
darling. Her hat was black straw
with checker-board satin crown
and a satin band that came under
her chin. The colors were white t
and blue and really she looked
like a little doll in it. ;

Bridging the Gap From

Live stock is raised on the farms and

Meat is eaten in the large cities of the
East, and by our boys in France thousands

The day of transporting live animals from ranch to
seaboard and overseas has passed. There was too much .
waste. The modern packer locates his large and special
ized plants in the producing regions.' He ships the
dressed beef in refrigerator cars, and holds it in his own -refrigerated
branch warehouses until delivered ' to the
retailer. For shipment to foreign ports, he transfers the
meat to refrigerated ships.
By means of his nation-wide organization the
modern packer maintains a continuous flow of meats
to all parts of the country, so that each retailer gets
just the quantity and quality of meat his trade demands,
and at the time he wants it
Swift & Company recently shipped 1,000 carloads of
meat products in one week to our Armies and to the
AlKes. ' v . -
Bridging trie gap from ranch to consumer can be
done successfully and at low unit costs and profits
only by large business organizations.
Swift & Company's profit on meat, always so small
as to have practically no effect on prices, is now limited
by the Government to about 2 cents on each dollar
