Officers Show How Army Does Baking
Ilf YSHINGTON. — Improvements in
W present-day methods of baking
bread In the field for the army over
the methods of only a year or two ago
were seen in a demonstration at the
Washington barracks the other day,
before a delegation of officials from
the war department. Those present
were Gen. Henry G. Sharp, commis-
sary general of the United States
army; Col. David L. Brainard and Maj.
Henry G. Cole.

bill of fare. Capt. M. A. Elliott, Jr.,
who is in charge of the bakery at

Finds Huts Upon
/\ UIDNUNCS at Washington, those
V£ gentlemen who are always asking,
“What now?” enjoyed a considerable
thrill of mystery and curiosity in dis-
cussing the recent report of Rear Ad-
miral Southland, who on board the
West Virginia visited Palmyra Island
and 51 of lesser isles, lying about 1,000
miles southwest of Honolulu, about 90
miles from Fanning Island.
The Palmyra group, says Chappie's
News Letter, was proclaimed a part of
Hawaii in 1882, but since it has ap-
peared to the state department only re-
cently that Great Britain had annexed
them in 1889, Rear Admiral Southland
was dispatched with the West Virginia
to explore the grbup thoroughly. No
living person was found in the archi-
pelago, although bird life abounded.
The most mysterious find was a lit-
tle settlement of three huts in a
densely wooded slope of Islet 51, the
presence of which was thoroughly
screened from anything by the closest
search. Two of the huts were roofed
with corrugated iron and one with

John R. Rhoades Is employed In the
supply division of the department. It
is the principal duty of Rhoades to
nail together the large boxes filled with
postal supplies for postmasters In
every section of the country.
As is customary with those who are
engaged in a similar task, Rhoades
took up a mouthful of wire nails. By
some unforeseen circumstances one of
the nails escaped his fingers when it
was about to be pulled from his mouth,
and went down his throat

thatch, and there were stoves, tables,
shelves, jars, botGes and other evi-
dences of a continued occupation at
no very distant period. One hut with
a new door and good lock, contained a
large number of cedar cases of Ori-
ental make, several of which had been
labeled by pasting a slip of Japanese
paper on the ends and writing over it
One case was thus labeled: "This case
contains ammunition, May 7.”
While there is no harbor at which
a vessel might coal or a naval base
be permanently established, the group

supplies or the rendezvous of an expe-
dition intended to carry out a design

some of his co-workers called np an
ambulance. They thought he would
choke to death unless medical aid was :
rendered at once. The ambulance from
the Providence hospital arrived and
Rhoades was hurried to the institution.
The physicians at Providence were es-
pecially busy when Rhoades arrived.
He waited for half an hour. No one
came to his assistance.
“I can’t afford to wait any longer,”
declared Rhoades. “I will be docked
if I stay away from the department
He left the hospital and returned to
his work. The nail was still clinging
to some part of his internal anatomy.
"How does it feel to have swallowed
a nail?” Rhoades was asked.
“Well, I have swallowed many a
fish bone, and I don't feel any other

into my system one of the small bones
of a shad,” he replied. “I can breathe
all right, and feel absolutely no incon-
venience, but I would like to have this

The Only Way.
An elder while baptizing converts at
a revival meeting advanced with a
wiry, sharp-eyed old chap Into the
water. He asked the usual question,
whether there was any reasoij why
the ordinance of baptism should not
be administered. After a pause a tall,
powerful-looking man who was looking
quietly on remarked:
“Elder, I don’t want to interfere in
yer business, but I want to say that
this is an old sinner you have got hold
of, and that one dip won’t do him any
good; you’ll have to anchor him out in
deep water over night.”—Life.
Down in Oklahoma they have a rail-
road called the Midland Valley, which
is noted for its slow travel. It is told
that a young man of Tulsa asked the
hand of a daughter from her parents
and was refused on the ground that
the daughter was too young.
“My daughter is going to Pawhusga
tomorrow for a visit,’’ said the father,
who is a traveling man, “and if she
doesn’t remain more than a day or two
she will be old enough when she gets
“But she may be an old maid by
that time,” protested the young man.
