The First Concern.
__“Before many weeks have elaps-
ed a definite number of Pennsylva-
nia’s citizens will be wheezing and
sneezing, victims of so-called hay
fever. While they are thus suffering
and waiting for that distant event of
a ‘fall frost’ they will get little re-
lief from any source. Therefore, on
the surface, the lot of the hay fever
subject appears to be a hard one,
said Dr. Theodore B. Appel, Secre-
tary of Health, today.
__«ag a matter of fact, science has
developed a quite successful method
to combat this seasonal affliction. To
begin with, only that comparatively
small minority of individuals who
possess an unusual sensitiveness to
the pollens of certain plants, weeds,
grass and trees are ever subject to
hay fever. And this fact has made
possible the development of counter-
«In order to make this modern
treatment effective it is necessary to
discover the particular pollen that is
causing the disturbance. This calls
for a visit to a physician who 18 pre-
ared to make tests with extracts of
pollens that may be logically suspect-
ed of causing the trouble in the par-
— “The test is exceedingly simple
as well as painless. By way of a
needle prick a bit of each extract
finds its way under the skin. This
definitely fixes the offender. Then
innoculations of that type are ad-
«The success in this therapy lies in
establishing immunity before the pol-
len season. Afterwards is likely to
be too late. Therefore, it behooves
all hay fever sufferers to take ad-
vantage of this scientific weapon with-
out delay. It may not be effective,
or perhaps merely partially so, but
the percentage of successes is suf-
ficiently high to test this treatment.
Get the edge on hay fever before it
gets the edge on you.”
_ «The fashionable world has no
monopoly on styles and fads. Amer-
jcan life is permeated with them.
For instance, consider the food ques-
tion. Thousands of people in Penn-
sylvania alone are following their
own pet theory on the nourishment
problem—if indeed it has any right
so to be called,” said Dr. Theodore
B. Appel, Secretary of Health, to-
__“Consider the man who refuses
to serve potatoes even to his guests
because he and his wife are dieting
and then is so inconsistent as to drink
two quarts of milk daily and con-
sume all the salted peanuts of which
he can get hold.
__“And this fellow is by no means
an exception, either. Under the fierce
fire of modern propaganda many in-
telligent citizens have finally suc-
cumbed to an idea which in their
mind somehow becomes important
because it is vaguely associated with
the reducing game. ‘Game’ is used
advisedly inasmuch as most people
are merely playing at reduction, ex-
cept that fortunately diminishing
minority of silly young girls who be-
come devitalized by starving them-
selves into an unhealthy slimness.
«As a matter of fact there is no
need for hysteria on the food ques-
tion. Meat, sweets, milk, grains and
all .their by-products should occupy
their proper place in the daily menu
where healthy people are concerned.
_ “Certainly it is true that in
some disease conditions red meat and
sugar, for example, are contra-indi-
cated. But speaking generally, all
types of foods are entirely safe and
healthy to consume.
“Rather than to develop a com-
plex against a certain food, such as
sugar, meat or potatoes ,one should
be on guard to keep a rational bal-
ance in the diet, and eat all things
“America is a land of enthusi-
asms. And eating is notable one of
them. The vast majority of people
need pay little attention to fads and
food propaganda. On the other hand,
the general run of people do need to
pay more serious attention to the
quantity of food they eat. That is
the main point.
— “Therefore, do not develop a
foolish attitude against a particular
food commodity merely because prop-
agandists tell you or imply that you
should do so. But eat less!”
A codification of the rules of
health, so modern in its spirit that
it would appear to have been pre-
pared by present-day scientists, has
been found in gypsy lore more than
2,500 years old. The American Mag-
azine, publishing these gypsy health
rules for the first time in English,
recommends them to the considera-
tion of all who seek physical nor-
The gypsy health doctrine is based
on the fundamental theory that there
is no more dangerous sickness than
sadness. As a matter of fact, the
gypsy language has no word for
sick.” Instead of saying, “He Is
sick unto death,” the gypsy says, “He
is sad unto death.’
Meat Not Exclusive
Food of Red Indians
Among all the American Indiens
there were no pure hunter tribes. in
the north portion of the continent the
diet was three-fourths animal food, in
the southern part it was three-fourths
vegetable, and with the tribes of the
coast, mountains, lakes and plains it
varied according to the food supply.
As a rule the Indian women were
cooks of considerable ingenuity and
contrary to popular belief the Indains
preferred cooked food. They were
good at husbandry and after drying
their vegetables they sometimes built
g-anaries wherein to store them. Anf-
mal food was often dried or frozen,
but sometimes was smoked. Fruits
were pulped or dried. Nuts were
often ground before being stored, as
were also maize, grass seeds and the
legumes. Potatoes and squashes fre-
quently were stored in holes dug be-
neath the frost line. The Indians
liked salt to flavor their dishes and
obtained it sometimes by evaporating
the water from salt springs and some-
times by taking the crystals from salt
lakes and caves. Many of them were
fond of chewing gum, which they got
from spruce trees. Savors, flavors
and condiments were valued highly.—
Fortune Had Part in
Doubling of “Talent”
A Sunday school teacher, after tell-
ing the class the parable of the talents,
gave each boy a dime, explaining that
they were to use their capital during
the week and report on the following
Sunday how much they had made.
“Now, then,” he said to the first
boy when they gathered a week later,
“how much has your talent gained?”
The boy produced 20 cents and tne
teacher was delighted.
“Splendid!” he exclaimed,
turned to the second boy.
“And how much have you brought?”
“Nothing, sir.” :
The teacher's expression changed.
«There, you see,” he told the class.
“George has used his talent aad
brought one talent more, while Jimmy
has lost the talent he had.”
He turned sternly to Jimmy.
«And what has become of your

Old American Flag
In 1775 a committee, under Benja-
min Franklin as chairman, desigried
the first flag of the United Colonies.
This is said to have been the first offi-
cial flag, and was hoisted by Wash-
ington over his camp in Cambridge
and by Capt. John Paul Jones over
his fleet early in 1776. It had 13 red
and white stripes, representing the 13
United Colonies, with the king's
colors, the crosses of St. George and
St. Andrew, in the blue canton. Che
presence of these crosses in the biue
field meant that the Colonists were
fighting for their rights as Englssh-
men. It has been called a “flag not
of separation but of protest.” In
those days it was often designated
as the congress colors, or the Cam-
bridge flag, and was officially known
as the Grand Union flag, and is said
to have been designed by Washing-
Little Change in Scales
There is little or no difference be-
tween the scales used today and those
used in the days of ancient Egypt,
judging by an exhibition in the Science
museum, South Kensington, London,
recently. Ilustrating the history of
weighing as far back as is known,
a steelyard used by a Roman butcher
identical with one of the present day
was on show. Modern scales of nickel
and enamel, with multi-colored dials,
on which the weight can be read in
an instant, stood side by side with
models showing that centuries ago
Leonardo da Vinci designed a welf-
indicating machine on exactly the
same principle. :
Flemings in England
Flemish weavers were first estab-
ished in England by Henry I in Pem-
prokeshire at the beginning oi the
Twelfth century, and they seem ¢om-
stantly to have come to England after
that time. In Edward III's reign im-
migration was stimulated when the
king offered special rights to the
Flemish on condition that they teach
Englishmen their trade. Later, ie the
Sixteenth century, the religious trou-
bles resulted in a substantial ensigra-
tion of Flemish weavers to Engtand.
These immigrants played an impor-
tant part in the birth of the English

—Are chain farms to follow in the
wake of chain stores, factories, rail-
roads and mines? A tendency in
that direction is noticeable here and
there. The movement has nothing in
common with Thomas D. Campbell's
great 90,000 acre projects in Mon-
tana. This is a merchandized wheat
factory—nothing else is produced.
The chain-farm system is a linking
of a group of small farms of from
twenty to 300 acres in extent which
pool their products, but on a whole-
sale scale, and to some extent em-
ploy communal machinery and live
stock. In other words, it is merely
an extension of the co-operative sys-
tem employed both here and abroad.
Recently thirty-two farms in Iili-
nois sold under mortgages by banks
and insurance companies were
brought together under a chain-ope-
ration system, with highly trained
farm engineers in charge, the result
being that under such scientific man-
agement, production costs were re-
duced, acre yields were increased and
the new owners realized profits where
the former owners had reaped deficits
along with the corn and oats. This,
of course, is merely turning the farm
into a factory. The men in charge
are mechanics and foremen. They
are doing a job for which they re-
ceive wages. Their principal inter-
est, naturally enough, is in keeping
their job rather than in improving
the farm, though one might be made
contingent upon the other.
— Whether a farmer is to get 70
cents an hour for his labor with his
poultry flock, or 24 cents an hour,
depends largely upon whether he can
get his pullets into production in
time to take advantage of high win-
ter eggs prices, it was shown by a re-
cent experiment conducted in Ohio.
A large percentage of the farm-
ers throughout the country can near-
ly triple the labor income from their
chickens, merely by managing the
flocks so that at least 25 per cent. of
the year’s egg production comes be-
tween October 1 and January 31, ac-
cording to the results of this test.
A group of farmers were united for
this experiment. Half of them man-
aged their poultry flocks so that 25
per cent. of the total yearly produc-
tion was disposed of in October, No-
vember, December and January,
when eggs are highest in price. Fig-
ures showed that this practice boost-
ed their year-round average price to
38.7 cents a dozen for all eggs sold,
and gave them a return of 70 cents
for every hour of labor on poultry,
after allowing for all other costs.
A second group of farmers, who
did not get their pullets in condition
for fall egg production, selling only
four per cent. of their eggs in the
four high-price months, received only
30.8 cents a dozen for their year-
round average price, and made only
24.5 cents an hour in labor income.
The . secret of obtaining fall egg
production lies in securing chicks
early, from good parent stock, so the
pullets will be laying in early Octo-
ber, when the demand is heavy and
the prices start to mount.
Endorsement to this policy is made
by leading hatcherymen throughout
the country, who recently united un-
der the slogan, “Hatchery Chicks for
Greater Profits.” They pledge bet-
ter quality chicks to their customers,
and every assistance in helping cus-
| tomers raise their chicks into profit-
able poultry flocks.

wick against Nellie K. McIntyre, for
damages for the alienation of her
husband's affections, but they
couldn’t have been considered very
valuable by the jury which sat upon
the case, for after hearing the evi-
dence they returned a verdict in fa-
vor of the plaintiff for $500.
