Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 13, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE FOURTEEN THE LETJ1BHILHJE DAILY HERALD i SATURDAY, APRIL 13, 1MB MRS. ARTHUR MEIGHEN "The war has done us good in man? ways. Before it broke out women were simply straining to get ahead of �ach other, both in clothes and entertainment. Each one tried to outdo the other in the refreshments 3he served at functions. Now we are straining towards simplicity, and it is better for tts all. It will mean the building up of a new womanhood." Mrs. Arthur Meighen regards the ) food conservation question from two ' angles-through her own and her  children's eyes. She believes that \ Just as the children of Europe are suf-: faring cruelly as a result of the war so the children of Canada shoairi be taught by their mothers to have some share in working or sacrificing- for � the sake of the little brothers and sis-  ten across the seas. She is the exponent of this principle i in her own home, for her three children are enthusiastic young patriots mho are doing their share by adding1 their small quota to the food supply of the country. Behind the Meighen home is what is called the "backyard f�rmyard,"where there is lively competition between the hens and the garden. This year it is either a question of enlarging the ben-run or the garden and the decision la still in abeyance. Laijt year the children built the hen-House themselves, and they look after the chickens diligently and enthusiastically. In fact, it is a standing grievance with them that "there is never any garbage" fpr their chickens. '* Mrs. Meighen heartily endorses tne Soldiers of ttee Sail movement, and la pleased with the way the boys are signing up. She thinks it is a splendid thing, both for the boys and Car the country. Her oldest boy 4s Just 12 years old. and although too young to enroll with the S.O.S. hoys, he is going to do his share this summer on a farm in Manitoba, wkere he will live with .friends and act as a yonrhful  ehepherd. The youngster is im-jmensely keen over the prospect of ' herding sheep. As Mrs. Meighen ex-j plained, when tamed out on the stub-'bje, with no fences in Manitoba, the j sheep need a good deal of ehepherd-J** A hearty advocate of the Casn-and Carry System is the wife of the Minister of the Interior. She carries home all her own parcels, unless their site makes this out of the question. In discussing it, she laughed as pictured herself starting oat,to do her shopping With a huge bag over her arm. 8he flads it more profitable, however, than shopping by telephone, but the main advantage. In her opinion, is His fact that it every woman once got Into the habit of doing this, the delivery system would be simplified and span would be released tor the farms, where they are going to be badly Beaded this year. Mrs. Meighen aeems to rather tike the idea of shopping in the good, old-fashioned way with a modern edition of a market basket. She speaks from practical expert- Nothing Like Internal Bathing for Constipation ence of girls' .ability to do farm work, declaring that any girl of average strength can run a hay rake or mower and do any number of "jobs" on a mixed farm. Personally, she has run a hay rake and knows how to throw over the gears of this implement. Mrs. Meighen thinks that a great many girls who are living at home now and others who are engaged in non-essential industries would be well advised to go on to the farms. She referred 'especially to the numbers of girls who spend so much time In the tea-rooms when they would be better employed in learning how to cook in their own homes. . "In saying that I think afternoon teas and extra meals should be cut out, I am not speaking merely from the standpoint of food economy. There is the other consideration that they tend to give girls an excuse for gadding about at a time when all their energies are needed for practical work. It is appalling how little some girls know about domestic economy. They might be learning a whole lot these days in the kitchen-because the kitchen is of the first importance now. I really think the tea-rooms should be closed, for you can hardly blame the girls for going to them so long as they remain open. There is no doubt that they are tempting. Afternoon tea in the home as a Social custom Is all right if Judgment is exercised in the use and abuse of food. I like afternoon tea, myself, but 1 think the tea-room is a distinct temptation, that might be dona'away with." Mrs, Meighen thinks that the new waste' and hoarding regulations issued by the Canada Food Board are excellent. She believes that women will be acropuloiu in reporting any cases of hoarding or waste they hear of, and that there will be a number ot these she is certain. In bar own home as much economy is practised as possible. Graham or cornmeal muffins have taken the place of bread at breakfast time, and war bread is baked once a week. The use .of beef and bacon has been reduced to the minimum, and every possible source ot waste is carefully watched. "When you atop to think of how people-are suffering in Europe and of how fortunate we are, it's astonishing that we can be so Indifferent," said Mrs. Meighen. "The latest war news conies with such a shock that I think H rather pulls us up. Certainly the spirit of self-sacrifice which has characterised our women in other ways is now spreading by slow degrees to material things. For one thing, I believe women are reading the papers more than they ever did, and this, if nothing else, should help to open their eyes'* to the situation. "The war has done us good in many ways. Before it broke out women were simpjy straining to get ahead of each other, both in clothes and in entertainment. Each one tried to outdo the other in the refreshments she served at luncheons. Now we are straining rather towards simplicity, and it is better for us all. It will mean the building up of a new -womanhood." If people only knew what Internal Bathing is doing for thousands of others there would be fewer Pills and laxatives swallswed and very much less suffering from Constipation and the accompanying Stomach and Nervous troubles resulting from it. Mrs. Cave, 841 Ellery St., Victoria, B. C, .writes: "Before using the *J. B. L. Cascade' I suffered constantly from Constipation, had frequent bilious attacks and sick headaches. Since beginning your system of Internal Bathing with the 'J. B. h. Cascade' tour months ago, I have not had-one attack and feel stronger and better in'Wery way. My only regret is that I did not get a Cas-, sade sooner." * By the proper application of nature's sure, warm water, by meaus of the "J B. L. Cascade" the lower intestines are kept free from all poisonous waste. Drugs force Nature. Internal Bathing insists her. Dr. Chas. A. Tyrrell of New York, a ippcialiat on Internal Bathing, invented and perfected the "J. B. L. Cas-sade," which has done more during the past 20 years in restoring health md lessening disease than alt other ki�ans combined. Ask the Red Cross brUe & Book Co., Lethbridge. for booklet; "Why Man of Today is Only 50 Per. Cant, efficient." They'will also be Iteasad to show and explain- the J. i. L. Cascade to you-Advertisement. El CO. REORGANIZED H. A. Suggltt, president of the A. Mitchell Nursery Co. of Coaldale states that for. some time the officials of that organization have been working on plans for the reorganization of the company. These plans are now well along to completion and the future of the company looks exceedingly bright. For some time it has been the practice of the company to sell considerable stock at wholesale to other firms for distribution, but from now on this practice will be discontinued and sales made only by mail orders and through their own district agents, who will thoroughly cover Alberta and Saskatchewan. Several thousand dollars worth of new treasury stock is being taken by prominent farmers and business men of the district. The head office of the company has been moved to Lethbridge and offices have been secured in the Stafford Block. The nurseries at Coal-dale will still be under the able supe'r-| vision of Mr.'Mitchell, who will also have charge of the shipping department. AV. H. Pawson, Jr.. has been appointed secretary-treasurer with the added duties of sales manager. The selling and business departments will be handled from the head office here. ******* * * "* WHEAT SUBSTITUTES * * * *********** ;>** The Macdonnld Institute has issued a pamphlet on wheat substitution containing many interesting facts. The following are extracts: Possible Substitutes for Wheat ! Flour: 1-Fine-ground Flours--Ryo, 1 Barley. Corn. Buckwheat and Itice. 2-Meals--Rye. Barley, Yellow and i White CoMimeiil. and Oatmeal. 8- ! Rolled Oats and Rolled Barley. 4- Whole Kicc. Yeast Breads When using substitutes in the form of fine-ground i'fiour-Corn, buckwheat or rice flour : may satisfactorily replace up to one-! quarter of the wheat flour; barley I flour up to one-third; and rye flour up | to one-half. These proportions will | yield light, well-risen loaves. Higher i proportions of rye flour, even to complete substitution, may be used, but will not be generally popular. These substitutes do not stand Ions fermentation processes well. 11' the j j process'is an overnight one. or takes ionge'r than six hours, the home baker's best method appears to be that , in which a sponge is set with white flour only. The substitute flour is added with the rest of the wheat flour : at the dough stage, and finished as any ordinary white bread. Quick process methods may be used, and the flours made up into a dough in the beginning, but these require more yeast, thus adding to the cost of the bread. When using substitutes in the form of meals-Meals are better to be at least partly cooked before making into yeast bread. They may be scalded, i. e. boiling liquid is stirred in, the dish covered and allowed to stand tor a time. They may be more or less thoroughly cooked into a porridge or mush. Leftover porridge or mush will do as well as fresh-cooked. When scalded "hTcBl Is used-allow M cup raw meal for- each cup liquid required for the bread; use most of the liquid to fcald the meal; cool to lukewarm temperature before adding the yeast dissolved In the rest of.the liquid; and mix to a dough with wheat flour. Fa? a ^longer process make n sponge with White flour and part of the liquid; add the jjcnliled and cooled meal; ami mix to a dough with wheat flour. When porridge or mush is used allow up. to two cups for each 1-2 cup liquid used in making the dough. Add it either at the first mixing, or at the dough stage as above. When using rolled oats or rolled barley-When the raw cereal is used scald it like the meals, allowing up to 1-3 cup to each $up liquid required for the bread. ' When using whole rice-Allow 1-4 cup rice to each liquid required for tiTe bread; 'cook it thoroughly in 3-1 tup of liquid and use like porridge. j Here's Something Which Is Most Worthy 4>f Your Support BURNED GERMAN BOOKS Duluth, Minn..

CAN ADAS PRIDE CANADIANS have good reason to be proud of the position Canada holds in the world today. This pride is justified fey the activities of her people, by her unlimited natural resources, by her splendid institutions, and particularly by her Industries. Facts about the immensity- of some Canadian industries would astonish most people. These industries, when viewed in the light of comparison with other countries, are simplyytre-mendous. The growth of any industry is limited to the number of. people it can serve, and that is a fact not often properly appreciated when Canadian industries are compared to similar enterprises in, say, the United States. For example: the population of the United States exceeds 100,000,000: Opportunity- for industries there is'almost unlimited. In comparison, Canada with its seven million population is a small country-yet in spite of this comparatively small population, Canada possesses several industries which in actual size rank among the biggest in the world. In shoemaking, one Canadian concern has developed a volume of business and a service to the Canadian people which is not equalled by another shoe manufacturer anywhere in the world. This concern, if located in the United States, would rank as one of the twelve largest out of some < two thousand shoe manufacturers .there. While the sales of the largest shoe manufacturer in the United States-selling to the American people-do not exceed twenty-five cents per capita per year, the sales of Ames Holden .McCrcady to the Canadian people last year were approximately eighty cents per capita.' In a comparative sense, therefore, this Canadian concern- is greater than the foremost American shoe manufacturer in the United States. Thus Ames Holden McCready truly merit the distinction of their title "Shoemakers to the Canadian Nation." Just imagine for a moment the enormous work of supplying a large portion of Canada's 7,000,000 people with its boots and shoes: --it requires-huge up-to-date factories equipped with the most �modern machinery able to turn, out 8,000 pairs of shoes a day. / -it requires-a variety of nearly 800 different styles to meet' the requirements of all classes of people, for different grades, shapes and kinds of shoes. -it requires-the maintenance, of six large distributing' branches in principal cij.ies from coast tc coast, and in these are carried over a million dollars worth of stock, ready for quick delivery to retailers. , -it requires-sixty travelling salesmen to call on the retail trade, because out of approximately Io,ooo retail dealers who sell shoes in Canada, more than 5,000 handle A.H.M. Shoes. -it Requires-many other details of organization and equipment, but this brief outline will give you some slight idea of the part that this great shoe concern is playing |in the business of supplying footwear to the Canadian people. You will be interested in these facts, because the next time you buy footwear bearing the A.H.M. Brand, you will know that they are the product of a large and efficient organization making shoes which will in every case give you the greatest value for your money.
