Natural Result of Cross.
One >iay Luther Burbank was walk-

said: "Well, what are you working on

A Problem of the Life to Come.
Small Johnny was wriggling and

FORD SAYS WE EAT TOO MUOR
So Millionaire Is Going to Show U*
How to Save Money and Have
Detroit. Mich., July 9.—Over-eating
causes brain sluggishness and an appe-
tite for liquor. Therefore Henry Ford
is to establish in the new Ford General
Hospital a department of dietetics to
teach not only the Ford employes, but
the general public, to eat less and how
to eat. Incidentally, Mr. Ford expects
to enable his employes to save a mil-
lion dollars by intelligent eating.
People consume three times as much
food as they should, the head of the
Ford Motor car industry believes, and
by reducing this amount the craving
for alcoholic stimulant in many cases
will be entirely removed. The hospi-
tal plans, in substance, are as follows:
New department in public hospital
to teach people how to eat.
People to have benefit of expert die-
Less eating is expected to prevent
cases of alcoholism.
One thousand private rooms for the
middle class to be provided at new
hospital, the charge for a sick man to
be $2 a day, including room, board ajid
Nurses to work in three shifts! no
nurse to work more than eialit hours
New buildings at hospital to be built
around a garden.
Lake to be made in front of hospi-
The department Of dietetics will bs
a means of prevention of illness, ac-
cording to a statement of Or. James E.
Mead, who is in charge of the Ford
Hospital. "We are prepared to cure
cases of addiction to drugs and to
liquor," Doctor Mead said, "but we pre-
fer to prevent them."
"Thomas Edison eats less and does
more than any other man I know," Mr.
Ford said. "The best authorities I can
find tell me that we eat too much. I
myself have tried the theory that less
eating is beneficial and 1 am convinced
that it is true.
"Think of the waste of foodstuffs
there is, too. We wouldn't feed an
engine three times as much fuel as it
needs. Yet we pay out our good money
to gormandize at the expense of our
income and our health."
GERMANS LOSE IN AFRICA
Kaiser's Troops Surrender Uncondi*
tionally to Gen. Botha—Boer Sol-
diers to Be Sent to France.
Pretoria, South Africa, July 10 —
General Botha, commander of the
forces of the Union of South Africa,
has accepted the surrender of all Ger-
man military forces in German South-
The Germans surrendered uncondi-
tionally, following the issuance of Gen-
eral Botha'8 ultimatum, which expired
at 5 o'clock Thursday evening.
With the exception of the necessary
army of occupation, the citizen army
will be brought home as quickly as
London, July 10.—The surrender of
the entire German force in German
Southwest Africa closes one of the
most important campaigns of the great
war and releases for service elsewhere
the South African contingent.
The campaign against the import-
ant German African colony was con-
sidered so vital that all the resources
of the South African lTnion were used
in it, but its successful conclusion
probably means that despite the fact
that German East Africa remains un-
conquered, the contingent will be dis-
patched to France.

helping to support a family, on meagre

BIG INCREASE OF
WAITED LONG FOR PROBATE
After Twenty years Son Produces Fa-
ther's Will—Testator's Instructions
Had Been Obeyed.
Undiscovered for nearly twenty
years after his death, the will of Jo-
hann Michael Muller has been offered
for probate at Baltimore by his son,
John G. A. Muller. The testator died
March 13, 189b, having made his will
on May 81, 1889.
The paper, yellow and musty with
age, left all Mr. Muller's property to
his wife Elizabeth Barbara Muller.
She died April 30, 1915, and her son
was appointed administrator of her
estate. He had known of the exist-
ence of the will for several months
prior to his mother's death, but since
all the property had been enjoyed by
Mrs. Muller as her husband had de-
sired, it was not thought necessary
to probate the will at that time.
The son says the property will now
be divided between his two brothers
and himself, since his mother died in-
testate. The exact value of the estate
has not been determined, but it is
made up almost entirely of parcels of
Province of Alberta Shows In-
crease of Over 20 Millions.
Figures Just compiled by the public-
ity branch of the provincial depart-
[ ment show that last year, notwith-
j standing that quite a third of the prov-
ince was affected by the drought to
I a very serious extent, the total value
j of agricultural products actually pro-
duced in the province showed an in-
| crease of over twenty million dollars
j over that of the previous year. Al-
i though southern Alberta had a bad
j year agriculturally, the province as a
whole experienced a period of great
j prosperity, due principally to mixed
farming, which is becoming more gen-
eral with each succeeding year.
| The value of mixed farming, in fact,
was never better illustrated than last
year as the value of the animals
slaughtered and sold alone equaled
the value of the spring wheat crop,
without taking into consideration the
value of the butter, milk, cheese, poul-
try, vegetables, and other by-products
of the farm.
Oats was the banner grain crop,
1.147,382 acres being seeded, and pro-
ducing 34,397,117 bushels, or 30.15 to
the acre. Sold at an average of 50c
per bushel, these yielded a revenue of
$17,198,558. Comparatively little win-
ter wheat was produced, the yield be-
ing a little short of one million bush-
els, but the spring wheat crop
amounted to 15,102.083 bushels, the
I yield per acre being 15.26. At an aver-
age of $1.35 per bushel, the value of
j the spring wheat crop was therefore
$20,387,812. The total production of
| barley was 7,847,640 bushels, which, at
i 55c per bushel, yielded a revenue of
! Other productions were as follows:
I Flax. 207,115 bushels, $310,672.00; rye,
| 261,843 bushels, $196,392.00; Bpeltz, 42,-
707 bushels, $32,030.00; hay, 200,000
tons, $2,500,000; potatoes, four million
bushels. $3,000,000; turnips, three mil-
lion bushels, $750,000; carrots, 360,000
bushels, $180,000; mangolds, 640,000
bushels, $320,000; animals slaughtered
and sold $20,000,000; butter and
cheese, $1,500,000; milk, $3,000,000;
wool clip, 1,300,000 pounds, $100,000;
fish. $195,000; game and furs, $600,-
000; horticultural products, $150,000;
poultry and products, $2,650,000.
The total of the agricultural prod-
ucts is given as $78,516,891, as com-
pared with $58,098,084 in 1913.
The statistics also Bhow that the
value of the live stock in the province
at the end of the year was $110,044,-
630, this being an increase of $7,762,-
845 over the previous year. There
were 609,125 horses, 750,789 swine,

The Effects of Opiates.
THAT INFANTS are peculiarly susceptible to opium and its various
preparations, all of which are narootio, ifl well known. Even in the
smallest doses, if continued, these opiates cause changes in the func-
tions and growth of the cell* which are likely to become permanent, causing
Imbecility, mental perversion, a craving for alcohol or narcotics in later life.
Nervous diseases, such as intractable nervous dyspepsia and lack of staying
loowers are a result of dosing with opiates or narcotics to keep children quiet
5n their infancy. The rule among physicians is that children should never
receive opiateB in the smallest doses for more than a day at a time, and
only then if unavoidable.
The administration of Anodynes, Drops, Cordials, Soothing Syrups and
other narcotics to children by any but a physician cannot be too strongly
decried, and the druggist should not be a party to it. Children who are ill
need the attention of a physician, and it is nothing less than a crinio to
dose them willfully with narcotics.
Castoria contains no narcotics if it bears the
signature of C'has. II. Fletcher.

AN EASY WAY TO GET
RID OF UGLY PIMPLES
Bathe your face for several minutes
with resinol soap and hot water, then
apply a little resinol ointment very
gently. Let this stay on ten minutes,
and wash off with resinol soap and
more hot water, finishing with a dash
of cold water to close the pores. Do
this once or twice a day, and you will
be astonished to find how quickly the
healing resinol medication soothes
and cleanses the pores, removes pim-
ples and blackheads, and leaves the
complexion clear and velvety.

Modernizing the Roundup.
Each year seems to give the auto-
mobile a new hold on life. The war
brought it to the forefront In a new
field. The soldier of the present day
seldom makes long forced marches
like Sherman's march to the sea. He
travels by motor car. As a result, the
automobile casualty list is tremen-
dous; the average life of a car in the
battle line is estimated at thirty days.
But it is not only the war zone that
has lost part of its picturesqueness
through the use of the automobile,
The latter has begun to rob the an-
nual cattle roundup of some of its
thrills by replacing the horse. This
year has seen the ubiquitous car with
a cowboy at its wheel on our western
prairies, discouragiug the cattle from
attempts to escape from the ever-nar-
rowing circle in the roundup. Many a
steer which has given a cow horse a
run must feel disconcerted when it
bucks up against the four-wheeled
steed.—Wail Street Journal.
