As I confronted the necessity of

that they were pitiably Inadequate.
What could I do? 1 searched my

I could convert Into gold. Could I

any of the trades? Certainly not.

SEAL SENDS LETTER TO ALL
THi: PYTHIAN KNIGHTS.
The Knights of Pythias are raiding
a magnificent war relief fund for the
protection of the widows, children and
dependent families of soldiers who
go to the front in the defense of their
country. Following is a letter from
tho supreme keeper of the royal seal,
which Is being Mint to Pythian mem-
bers all over the land:
"At no previous time in the his.
tory of the order of Knights of Pyth-
ias has ati attempt been made to com-
municate personally with each of the
seven hundred and fifty thousand
members. But that is now being done
in connection with the work of the
war relief commission, in the raising
of the half million dollar fund which
the supreme government has pledged.
Each member who can be reached
will receive through hte mails a let-
ter reading as follows:
"The army of blue, yellow and red
is to bo mobilized.
"As a member of the great farter-
nity of Knights of Pythias we ask
you to immediately report to your lo-
"Not being at the front, you can
render assistance to those who are.
"Our boys are on the firing line
and in training camps, meeting the
test of steel. Their needs will be
many. Some will, of course, meet
death, others will suffer from wounds
and disease, and families at home will
"To meet the demands that will
thus be made upon us, we need a
fund of half a million cfollars.
"One dollar from each of our mem-
bers will raise it. We want our mem-
bership to respond with that degree
of loyalty which the princivlcs of our
order inculate—but we want no un-
"The war relief commission urges
you to send at once to the keeper of
records and seal of your subordinate
lodge, your subscription on the at-
tached blank. He will in turn send
it to the grand keeper of records and
seal of your domain, by whom it will
be forwarded to the supreme master
of exchequer, with the other contri-
butions from your lodge, to aid in the
Creation of the fund, which this or-
der stands pledged to raise.
"The Knights of Pythias was tho
first fraternal organization to take
steps to raiso a war relief fund.
Therefore, let us be prompt in send-
ing our subscriptions, that we may bo
the first to report that we are ready.
"Details of the organization of a
war relief commission, composed of
supremo lodge officers and past su-
preme chancellors; of a war relief
council In each domain, composed of
officers of your grand lodges, all
officers of your grand lodge; and of
a war relief committee In each of our
mora than 7,000 subordinate lodges,
all working together toward a eom-
mon end, are already in possession
or the officers of your lodge, and it
is therefore unnecessary to repeat
them in this appeal to you. But in
short, you are now asked to exempli-
fy the tenets of our order, patriotism
ap# fraternity. 'Dou your bit.'
"We must be prepared to heed the
call of distress when it comes, and
with willing hands and open hears
justify in the eyes of the world our
claims to being one of the grandest
fraternal organizations that ever
brought to humanity a mission of
love, and devotion to God. to home
and to country.

Local Pythian IrfKlgo to Celebrate.
At the regular meeting of the Mid-
lothian lodge No. 50 Knights of Py-
thias last Thursday night it was de-
cided to form a big class of pages
to join the order not later than Sept.
27. It is planned to have quite a
celebration at that time and a spe-
cial committee has been formed to
plan tho program and secure tho
members of the class. The men upon
•whom this responsibility devolves are
J. F. Christian, Frank Lucas and T.
B. Potts. They are already on the
job and will report at hte next meet-
ing of the lodge.
In measuring flour the average cook
tak'ts too much by dipping it in a cup
or shaking it down when measuring.
Flour should be sifted before meas-
uring, then lightly dropped into tho
cup with spoon or knifa. In taking
a measure for half a teaspoonful or
any part, fill It level with a knifa
and cut down through the centre,
from the handle to the tip, pushing
off the half, or divide in thirds by
marking the full spoon crosswise.

One of the best methods of eleiin-
inK painted woodwork is to use naph-
tha soap exactly as you would use it
in washing clothes. Hub the wood-
work over with a well soaped cloth
and let it stand a few minutes. This
loosens the dirt as soaklnsr the
clothes loosens it in laundry work, so
that when one ffoes over the wood-
work a second time all soil comes off
almost without rubbing. This method
Is not only qulckcr than scrubbing,
but much better for the paint.
