Dredge Employed to Dig Channel
Through Cranberry Marsh a Credit
In Wisconsin ther§''is a clamshell-
bucket dredge- r£ use which at each
Bhovelfj^- removes an amount of ma-
,_-4£nal much greater than the size of
the bucket itself. The reason is that the
outfit is being used to dig a channel
through a cranberry marsh, where the
material to be cleared away varies
all the way from tangled weeds to
hardpan. The eventual object of this
channel, which is 30 feet wide and 6
feet deep, is to drain 1,500 acres of
cranberry land. In one section of this
land there is a lake, the waters of
■which must be distributed throughout
the bogs during certain seasons of the
year. The use of this type of bucket,
which, besides digging into hard
ground, will also come away with bush-
els of underbrush, matted boughs,
etc., hanging from its jaws, illustrates
the art of adapting the tool to the
Glimpse Into Uncle Sam’s Big Printing Office
Ilf ASHINGTON.—Approximately 4,000 men working In shifts through the
W 24 hours of the day and night, tons of paper going In and coming out,
the ceaseless whir of presses, the rumble of machinery, the clacking of lino-
type machines—these are the things
that strike the visitor when he enters
the government’s immense publishing
The Infinite detail of the govern-
ment printing office—for that is the
official title of the publishing estab-
lishment—comes afterward. It is only
after the confusion of first impressions
has cleared away that the complexity
of the public printer’s problems are
apparent. Perfect system, a knowl-
edge of arrangement so that, the mini-
mum of time may be lost In transportation, and individual efficiency are
some of the requirements.
What publishing house, putting out hundreds of new editions in all sorts
of elaborate bindings, and running a newspaper on the side, would not feel
that It was straining itself? That is what the government’s printery is doing.
An insight into the immensity of the work is gleaned from the figures of
the post office showing that approximately 95 per cent of the total weight of
mail disposed of in Washington is mailed under a government frank.
Perhaps the rush work of the printery is the most spectacular. Congress
must have Its Congressional Record every morning as regularly as the subur-
banite must have his newspaper, and there must be no errors In the Record.
When an error crops out in the Record a member of congress promptly arises
next day and has it changed. So, as far as is possible, the government print-
ing office must prevent them. While the mills of congress grind, the goyefry
ment printing office is going ahead with a^spee^JSfertny "of ah eleven-edition
mail disposed of in Washington_ isjtraiiea under a government frank, and this
immense amount of printe^mafrter represents, of course, only a part of the
public printers Is/'output.
GINGER IN SUMMER SALADS

'Capital Social Strategists Have Many Difficulties
“T1 HE handling of the diplomatic corps in a diplomatic way at society^ affairs
A is no small matter at any time, but when any unpleasantness breaks out
between two countries the difficulties of the social strategists in Washington
Increases ten-fold. It will take but a
brief calculation to understand what
would happen In Washington if the
social season of the capital were in
full swing now with the European sit-
uation in its present status. If peace
Is not declared within a few weeks
there will be some curious situations
developed in the Washington society
world this winter. Hostesses will be
put to It in the matter of inviting
guests and the White House, also will
have some problems to solve.
It Is true that handling of representatives from warring countries at so
clety affairs will not be a novel experience to Washingtonians. It is not so
long ago that the ambassadors from Italy and Turkey were not on intimate
terms. Some time before that the representatives of China and Japan could
not be placed side by side at a dinner. Prior to that It was the Russo-Jap-
anese war that gave the society folk of Washington more or less trouble.
Hard as it Is to manage society affairs here when two countries are
drawing swords against each other, it will be as nothing compared with
what must be done if practically all Europe continues to fight. It has been
facetiously suggested that John Barrett, director general of the Pan-American
Union, should be appointed to manage society affairs here this winter be-
cause of his success in promoting harmony among the representatives in
Washington of the South and Central American countries for some years past.
A few weeks after marriage love is
apt to soar away in the hot air bal-
loon built during courtship.
But It All Came Out Right.
How a sister played a trick that
brought rosy health to a coffee fiend
is an interesting tale:
“I was a coffee fiend—a trembling,
nervous, physical wreck, yet clinging
to the poison that stole away my
strength. I mocked at Postum and
would have none of it.
“One day my sister substituted a
cup of piping hot Postum for my morn-
ing cup of coffee but did not tell me
what it was. I noticed the richness
of it and remarked that the ‘coffee'
tasted fine but my sister did not tell
me I was drinking Postum for fear I
might not take any more.
“She kept the secret and kept giv-
ing me Postum instead of coffee until
I grew stronger, more tireless, got a
better color in my sallow cheeks and
a clearness to my eyes, then she told
we of the health-giving, nerve-
Btrengthening life-saver she had given
me in place of my morning coffee.
“From that time I became a disciple
of Postum and no words can do jus-
tice in telling the good this cereal
drink did me. I will not try to tell it,
for only after having used it can one
be convinced of its merits.”
Ten days’ trial shows Postum’s pow-
er to rebuild what coffee has destroy-

Fish Leaps Into Boat of White House Sleuths
«ryCK” JERVIS and “Tommy” Callahap, secret service men stationed at
mJ the White House, and good-looking fellows, have won' reputations for
catching counterfeiters, and land fraud crooks, but it was not until recently
that they gained any reputation as
The reputation, however, Is based
solely upon what they are telling
themselves, Jervis, usually a reserved
and modest individual, doing the tell-
ing and Callahan adding, “That’s so.”
There are fish stories and then some
more fish stories, but these body-
guards of the 'president have one
which does terrible violence to the
wildest imagination, their yarn being
to the effect that a three-pound bass
they displayed about the White House actually jumped Into the boat.
"I guess maybe he didn’t want to get his jaws pricked,” opined Jervis.
“Anyway, without the slightest warning, this bass splashed out of the river
and almost Into Tommy’s lap. I think we must have caught his wife, as we
had three pretty big fish when the sensational leap was made.”
“Jimmy” Sloan, chief of the secret service squad at the White House,
vouches for ffhe veracity of his two associates.
What the Waiter Said to Senator Cummins
QENATOR ALBERT B. CUMMINS of Iowa rejoices In initials similar to
iJ those by which the diplomatic mediation commission was designated, for
the first letters of his three names are A, B, C. His family originally came
from Pennsylvania, but they emigrat-
ed to Iowa some years ago.
If Cummins has a fad It is books,
and first-edition books, at that. His
library is magnificent, and particular-
ly rich in historical works. His pride
Is his ancient tomes, though he Is
equally proud of the fine farms of
which his state beasts.
There 1b a story told on Senator
Cummins to the effect that last sum-
mer he and his wife went to a fash-
ionable roof garden In Washington.
After a day at the capitol, the cool breezes and music seemed delightful; so
the senator bethought himself of something to eat. Taking up the card, he
tried to read It without his glasses, which he had left on his desk, but was
He appealed to Mrs. Cummins, but that lady had also forgotten hers. “So
he handed the card to a smiling colored waiter who stood at the back of
his chair. '
“Waiter," he said, "please read this for me.”
The man took the card, looked at It In a puzzled way, then gave It back.
“I’s sorry, boss, that I can’t help you out,” he said, with a shake of the
Aead, “but you see I ain’t got much education either.”
Welcome for Its Digestive 96 Well a*
Its Refreshing Qualities—Served
in Grape Fruit.
Ginger is so refreshing in flavor and
so stimulating to the digestion that it
is a favorite ingredient in summer sal-
ads and desserts. An unusual fruit
salad, suited to molding in halves of
oranges or grapefruit, is strongly fla-
vored with ginger ale and has bits of
Canton ginger mixed with the fruit.
The recipe calls for two tablespoon-
fuls of granulated^ gelatin softened in
two tablespoonfuls of cold water and
then dissolved in a quarter of a cupful
of boiling water. To this add one cup-
ful of ginger ale, the juice of one large
lemon and two tablespoonfuls of sugar.
When the mixture begins to stiffen
stir in a variety of diced fruits, with
bits of orange or grapefruit pulp and
chopped nuts. This can be served with
mayonnaise dressing as a salad or with
whipped cream as a dessert.
A pretty way of serving individual
portions is to mold the ginger and
fruit salad in halves of large grape-
fruit. When ready to serve divide each
half so that each portion shall repre-
sent quarter the size of The original
grapefruit and the fruit jelly shall
have a rim of grapefruit peel only
where It would come in contact with
Any fruit salad mixture can be given
a pleasant pungent flavor by the ad-
dition of bits of crystallized ginger.
A small quantity of the syrup drained
from preserved ginger makes a novel

ing intended to be served with a fruit
CARE OF CARPET SWEEPER
Proper Handling Will Greatly Prolong
Its Life and Keep It Always
Ready for Immediate Use.
As the carpet sweeper is such an
important item in my domestic work,
I am very careful about it, writes a
correspondent of the Philadelphia
Ledger. After each sweeping I take it
to the back porch, dump it on a news-
paper and turn the broom, brush side
up, flat on the floor. I have an old
whisk broom cut straight across so
that the bristles are very stiff. With
this broom I sweep the brush of the
sweeper backward and forward. As
the bristles are put into the rod in a
curved line, the brush slowly revolves
as the broom Is applied. I sometimes
dip the brush in kerosene, which also
removes some of the dust from the
bristles and keeps them in good copdi-
tion. I oil bearings of my sweeper
frequently, and if there are any
threads or hair at either end, I do not
tear it away, but cut with a scissors.
Sometimes I use an old comb to comb
the bristles before putting the sweeper
away. This seems a good deal of
care, but I find that it pays, and that
a perfectly working sweeper is my

Cleaning Oriental Rugs.
Oriental rugs may be cleaned very
well with the aid of a vacuum cleaner,
as It does not pull out the nap, as beat-
ing is apt to do. The cleaner should,
however, be rolled up and down the
rug with the nap rather than across.
To Keep Peanut Butter Moist.
Always keep the peanut butter jar
turned upside down when on the cup-
board shelf, which insures the last of
It being as oily as the first instead of
dry and hard, as is usually the case
when it stands upright.

minutes; drain and set them upon ice
