'Much of the discomfort of hot weather c6me$ from urtintelligent eating. ""We are all prone to carry over into summer our. winter tastes at the table. If we can summon up fortitude to discard those foods which develop fcest the rich meats, gravies, pastries and sweet things generally, which build fires in our tummies and raise the temperatures of our bodies we shall all be saved not only much discomfort, but also many of the peril of hot ummer suns. . The vegetables and fruits are the things to ."'play up" on the table now. The vegetables re the great blood purifiers. They rid the blood of, what it called for in opld weather, those qualities which resist cold; and they leave us in condition to combat excessive heat, while the acid and juicy fruits ablyi reinforce them. Of all the fruits the lemon yields the most whole some acid. It is as pure gold to pig iron, when compared with vinegar. It is a good rule never t;o"use vinegar as an acid when a lemon is available. '"And if you would be cool while others sput ter and bubble with heat, eat lightlyl Hot meats, rich puddings, sweets, all heavy foods, have to be burnt up in the body. Therefore shun them if you would not have a conflagration within while the sun is raging without. And drink pure water in abundance at cellar cool Bess. -All iced drinks react unfavorably on the system. In the day's when cold beer "ice cold beer" was sought by the heated crowd, those who knew how to take it regarded ice on or in it. as an abomination. In Europe, which has been drinking intelligently rriuch longer than America, cellar coolness is the rule. Ice has permanently injured more stomachs in this country than all the beer ever guzzled in it The Piker Plays Safe.' ' . The Wall Street Journal, regarded by many at. an organ of unholy influences, and a cham pion of harmful speculation and get-poor-quick devices, carries much thrift propaganda in its always Interesting and instructive columns. -Recently it had a story of a stock broker who. was out at a dinner. In the course of the conversation somebody used' thword piker. -. "What is a piker?" asked the broker. One of the diners said right off the bat, after the- quick manlier of brokers: "A piker is a man who lives within his income." ..' Bean Supply Enormons. "The outlook for bean consumers is reassur ing. Full of nourishment and staying quality the bean', diet is much used as a substitute for meat and cheese when the latter are; high in price, or Kard to get, as every soldier knows well. ""Early in the war farmers got 7 cents a pound for beans and in Boston retailers charged 17 cents a pound. Wholesale and retail dealers got such fat profits at that Hime Japan and Other countries Sent immense" shipments to us, and hundreds of tons of them were""sequestrated in 'warehouses and kept off the market in order that prices might not decline after the manner peculators in food products have of nullifying theHaw of supply and demand in rder to skin consumers. , ." J , ; It happened that 1918 and i919 were good bean years m the United States of America, and the supply became enormous. Nonodv knows how many thousands of tons of beans are now kept off the market, but army, surplus sales baveN. given opportunity for purchases at less than 7 cents a pound. Recently there was a "drop in prices, and in Boston, the center, of the bean eating industry of the country, they re retailing at 7 cents a pound, and Sunday Tjiorning is "happy and cheerful again with its pets of succulent baked beans and bacon. One Impartial Political Writer. : In 1877 when the contested election between Hayes and Tilden had the citizenship of the country stirred to a dangerously high pitch of partisan excitement, and every scrap f news from Louisiana and two other doubtful states where returning boards were working was re ceived with the greatest eagerness, there was a aian named H. V. Redfield writing daily ac counts of the proceedings for the Cincinnati Commercial, then edited by Murat Halstead. V'Mr., Redfield had an extraordinary gift for absolutely unbiased and impartial -writing, and bis work excited attention and commendation U over the country because' of that fact We often wonder if there is not a field for such a writer in politics today; or have the press and Hf. supporters come toVp'nt where impartial political writing without etinge of partisanship, i neither- desired nor profitable. i ; The independent press, almost Without ex ception, so often swerves to one side or the other, or so brazenly belies its professions that it has come to be regarded' as a wholly untrust worthy source of equitable political information. Among the political writers, therefore, the public prefers the frankly partisan papers, and weighs the claims of both tides in order to arrive at a rerdict There" seems to be no successor to ' Redfield anywhere. ' ,. - . Philadelphia ministers ask the. enforcement of a Sunday law passed in 1794; probably a harder task than XS inspire, respect for 11. laws. The Days of "Spread-On." One smiles on reading a column article on the jam and marmalade industry in England, but jam cuts a large figure in British food produc tion. It and marmalade, we presume, occupy a position on thetables of the tight little isle com parable to our entire jelly, apple butter and peach butter product - We use a great variety of "spread-ons" apple sauce, sorghum, ''pie plant," preserves of all kinds, and a lot of other toothsome home made good things to eat. Those were good days when the whole family gathered around the supper table and attacked row on row of a big sqitfre pan of hot light bread biscuit, With a two-pound roll of yellow butter on a plate, and some sort of "spread-on', like grape jam, for instance, to crown the de licious bread. And while father and mother had their hot tea or coffee, the children had great goblets of fresh, sweet milk enriched by the "stripping" jwhen the faithful cow was milked. Happy d,ays, indeed, when stout little stomachs never faltered in their work I Labor Not Chief Beneficiary of Excess Profits. ' In 1919 the amount paid to labor for mak ing a yard of unbleached cotton goods was only i 9 cents a yard more than was paid in 1910, says the Chicago Journal. Labor cost IS per rent more in this, instance than in 1910, while the profits of the jpill owners soared to 748 per cent. In the Indictments found against president of the American Woolen company, , specific in stances included in the. bill show profits rang ing from 80 to 100 per cent. Naturally the re tailer who bought goods upon which were piled such enormous profits, had to increase his own percentage of profit owing to the great increase of capital required and the heavy risk of sudden declines. ' It may be added also that mill companies increased the .salaries and "commissions" of their officers in some instances hundreds of thousands of dollars, all of which was added to the cost of production. Lloyd George has come in for much criticism in the past year, but we have yet to see the first accusation that he ever overlooked an op portunity to promote England's commercial prosperity. In a country where home interests have been habitually relegated to the scrap heap, such a leader as Lloyd George has an at tractive aspect. ' The theatrical profession is not pleased be cause the Methodist church did not remove its ban on theater-going, and in New York has refused to give Methodist benefit performances. They should remember, however, that for twelve years New York Methodists have worked and voted to remove the ban. The New Yoric Sun says "the bloom is off the boom" of past-war industrial activities. We are approaching the normal that condition in which men have to do real work to live. What a weeding out of lazy shirks there will be when the dollar again becomes hard to get. "German hotels are gouging tourists," says a headline. Only the German ones? Since when did French, English, Swiss and Italian landlords cease that merry pastime? Why is a tourist, anyhow,5 if he is not to be gouged? Republicans renewed their confidence in the congress when President Wilson declared there was no hope in it. Richard Crofcer called his son a liar jn court at Palm Beach the other day. Unhappy man; unhappy son. v Even, Aff& All. A suspicious looking customer was boasting to a grocer of the cheapness of ten pounds of sugar he had bought at a rival shop. "Let us weigh the package," said the grocer. The other assented, and it was found two pounds short.; The man looked perplexed for a moment and then said: " "I don't think he cheated me much, for while he was getting the sugar I pocketed two tins of condensed milk." EdinA burgh Scotsman. Rivers of France. The three great rivers that flow from the heart of France to her three seas have each a character of their own. The gray and rapid current of the Rhone, swollen with the melting of the glacier snows, rolls past the imperish able monuments ql arjcien, empire, and through" the olivevards and vineyards of Provence, falls into the blue waves of the southern sea. The J- sandy stream of Loire goes westward past the palaces of kings and the walled pleasure gar dens of Touraine, whispering of . . . roy alty. ' But the Seine pours out its black and toil-stained waters northward between rugged baiks, hurrying from the capital of France to bear her cargoes through the Norman cliffs into the English Channel. Theodore Andrea Cook. Sound Talk by Old Abe. N I take it that it is best for all to leave each man free to acqurre property as fast as he can. Some will get wealthy. I don't believe in a law to prevent a man from getting rich; it would do more harm than good. So while we do not propose any war upon capital, we do wish to allow the humblest man an equal chance to get rich with everybody else. When one starts.poor, , as most do m the race of life, free society is such that he knows he can better his condition; he knows that here is no fixed condition of labor for his whole life. I am not ashamed to confess that twenty-five years ago I was a hired laborer, hauling rails, at work on a flatboat just what might happen to any poor man's son. I want every man to have his chance in which he can better his condition, when he may look forward, hope to be a hired laborer this year, the next work for himself, and finally hire men to work for him. That is the true system. Abraham Lincoln. The Submerged Nine-Tenths. Writing in the New York Tribune in ex-v planation of the conditions which led up to the organization of an industrial court in Kan sas, Governor Henry J. Allen says: "We made an investigation ' of the strata comprising the state. As the top stratum we found W2 per cent of the population made up of the big employers. The bottom stratum,! com prising S4 per cent, was composed of labor. Jn between was a stratum composed of the remain ing 93 per cent That 93 per cent is us. "Withsthe passage of the Adamsoa law labor became a contestant for the honor of the upper stratum; but we, you and I and the rest of us in the same walk of life, haven't moved. We remain the middle stratum. We are an im mense, good natured, inarticulate, mass. We are utterly submerged. The upper stratum and the lower stratum whaclreach other over our shoul ders. They starve us to every inconvenience as to travel and communication. Well, our good nature reached ite limit when the operators and coal miners fell out and quit producing coal just at the moment when a Miird bit the. stjte. Then the g-JO upheaved."

Various criticisms are sometimes heaped upon the head of the editor but the most frequent one follows the omission from a wedding account of what the bride wore. There seems to be a mania upon the part of a large portion of the people to know how the young lady was dressed. The next de mand will be for information as to the color of the lingerie and the texture of the hosiery and then everybody will want toVbe an edi tor that is every man.

In Portland, Ore., the Community Service movement is having great success with gymnasium classes for working girls. In the afternoon girls who have sat for several hours on an office seat or stood for several hours behind a store counter go at the end of their work day to some gymnasium where they don middy blouses and bloomers and go through exercises. Some of these are given in the open air. In a picture of such a class noted in Manufacturers' News some twenty-five girls are shown going through a bending exercise. The girls are standing with their heels about four Inches apart .and toes turned out slightly. The- arms are horizontal. While in this position the body is bent to the right until the right arm points toward the floor at an angle ofM5 degrees and the left arm to ward the ceiling at the same angle. Presumably the body is also bent to the left backward and forward, and the leg, arm and neck muscles come in for their work also. Portland's motto is said to be "Every girl an athlete." The girls in the front of the picture at least would do well to heed a statement made to me at this point by a society editress. She called my attention to the fact that one seldom sees an obese society woman. There is but one reason. They practice self-de nial. So far as eating goes, they are rigorous self disciplinarians. No where else in all human society is there a group so obedient to law. They cannot be persuaded, cajoled, or forced, or, as. Mayor ' Thompson would say, ' bought, Nbuilled or bluffed," to eat too much wread, pas try, desserts or sweets. i On the same page of the News is a story of the employment of Indus trial secretaries by many industries in the United States and Canada. The sole work of these secretaries is to promote play. Bowling leagues in each shop have been featured. Two factories have their own skating rinks. The women employes have their own ball teams and seem to take even more interest in the athletic exercises than the men. "During the spring and sum mer the ball teams play interdepart mental championship games." This quotation refers particularly to the four largest industries in Brantford, Ont. Almost every large industry has one or more ball teams and some have groups organized to play other competitive games. ,Bome follow the plan of the Burlington railroad They stop all office work for a few minutes morning and afternoon open the windows have the men and women employes dressed in office clothes stand in the aisles and go through exercises led by a major domo who stands on a platform. Generally thera is no music nor any other accessories. - Will Affect Texture. N C. J.
