♦ FRENCH BOMBARDING THE LAST GERMAN LINE OF COMMUNICATION WITH METZ. J
The Paris official report states that in the region of Pont-a-Mousson the French artillery has found ♦
4 it possible to bombard Arnaville. This is a small flag station on a branch railroad running from Pont-a- t
t Mousson through Pagny to Gonflans, where it connects with the main railway line from Verdon to Metz. J
I The highway from St. Mihiel crosses the railroad at this point and forms the last line of communication be- J
I tween the Germans on the Meuse, at St. Mihiel, and the fortress of Metz. Should this line be broken It would 4
4 necessitate sending supplies from Metz by a roundabout way by rail to Eta In and thence south along the Ger- 1
f man lines to St. Mihiel or else the evacuation of the latter place. Araaville is only nine miles from Metz and J
I eighteen miles from St. Mihiel. The French official report also states that a German attack on Bethincourt, I
T northwest of Verdun, has been repulsed. t

We have heard a great deal about

of health. There is hardly a city in the
land that has not a band of Boy j

Mothers have hardly known whether
to take this new order of children's
activities seriously or not. That our
towns are cleaner, the youngsters hap

But Dr. Dawson shows in this sugar

My Mince Meat
There is no one article of food that
shows the cook's careful judgment of
spices, proportions and knowledge of
flavors so clearly as mince meat.
It is worth while to make it care
fully for it may be kept a long time and
rewards the maker by its goodness
every time any of it is used-
Four pounds of juicy beef or shoulder
piece isa sensible sized amount of meat.
And right here we want to say that
miiice meat without meat in it should
be called another name for meat is ab
solutely necessary to this filling. With
the four pounds of beef have one and
a half pounds of suet in addition. One
peck of tart, juicy apples, one qhart
cider, four pounds sugar, four pounds
of seedless raisins, three rounding table
spoons of cinnamon, one tablespoon of
ground cloves, one tablespoon allspice,
two ground nutmegs, one level table
spoon of salt completes the list of in
gredients. Grind or chop the beef, and
chop the suet, pieking out all the fibres.
Some cooks prefer to try the fat from
the suet but this you must decide. The
apples must be pared and cored and cut
fine. It is a good idea to cook the
meat in water first and then slice the
apples into this broth, when it is cold.
Thero must not be too much of it,
Put everything into a porcelain kettle
and cook gently thirty minutes. The
amount of juice in the apples will de

We all remember how the late Mrs.
Woodrow Wilson could not be com
fortable or contented in her last hours
until she was sure that the alleys and
slums of Washington were to be made
j light, clean and sanitary. Such an ex
i ample as her's should move every wom-
I an in this country to do something to
j make her own town a better, sweeter,
J more wholesome place to live.
Such civic spirit is well within .the
interests of the most home loviug worn-

i daily living and vour family's im
j munity from disease?
Then there is the matter of prevent
' able diseases among children, chicken
pox, scarlet fever, measles, diphtheria,
whooping cough and tuberculosis. These
can all be prevented and in a few gen
erations mothers will be horrified to
read that in the early part of the 20th
century mothers purposely exposed their
children to these diseases under the
impression they were something chil
dren must have. Dr. Dawson thinks n

so—and other scientists say the same

Green tomato mince for pies is liked

Chop sixteen green tomatoes and add
six pounds of sugar, one ounce each
of cloves, allspice and cinnamon. Sim

with parafllne and a tight fitting lid.
For pies use two-thirds of this mixture
and one-third of finely chopped • loan
beef. Season with more Btigar and spice
if needed and add a little.cider to each
These pieces; like the regular mince
