They seem to have disappeared for every one nowadays seems to be making a courageous and sensible attempt to eat sanely. Over-indulgence in fat tening foods is looked upon with gen eral distaste and women in particular abhor the thought of becoming too stout. Thin people and especially thin men make desperate attempts to lay on weight in order to retain a youthful and healthful appearance. In the vast assortment of healthful foods that come in tin cans there are many fattening ones and many thin ning ones. The housewife who knows what foods reduce and what tend to r Jellied, Vegetables , A rare treat was offered to some American visitors by a Vene tian host who gave a dinner in their honor one summer evening on a barge afloat in the Grand Canal not far from the Doge’s Palace. Every dish served was cold, and prominent on the menu w r ere jellied meats and vegetables, f These are excellent summer foods, whether one eats them on the Grand Canal or in an American home. Here are suggestions, simplified by the use of canned foods. Chicken in Tomato Jelly Bring one can chicken soup and two cans tomato sauce to boiling point, pour onto two envelopes gelatin soft ened in one cup of cold water. Add three diced cucumbers, two small cans of chicken, two tablespoons sugar, increase weight keeps on her supply shelf a variety of cans of both kinds. Practically all of them come in tins of different sizes easily suited to the limited needs of a small family of two or three. Here are special luncheon menus from the shelf of canned foods that will suit the highly individualized tastes of a modem Jack Sprat and his wife, but which also represent a balanced food plan: Tomato Soup Corn Saute Spinach Salad Pineapple Sherbet Cheese Cream of Corn Soup Stringless Beans on Toast with Potatoes Fruit Salad Nuts half teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Pour in mould. When cold, serve with mayonnaise. A decorative effect is secured by putting sliced hard cooked egg and strips of red pimien to into the mould before pouring the jelly in. Jellied Peas Soften two and a half tablespoons gelatin in two-thirds cup cold water, add two and a half cups boiling water, two-thirds cup sugar, two thirds cup vinegar, two and a half tablespoons lemon juice, salt. Strain and cool. When almost congealed, add a can of drained peas and a can of carrots. Pour in mould and serve sliced. This dish serves as a meat substitute.

GAS TAX REVENUE INCREASE NOT DUE TO ROAD BOND ISSUES Figure* From State Auditor’s Office Show Georgia's Gasoline Revenue Has Doubled Since 1922. Road bond advocates, in pointing to Illinois, North Carolina and other heavily bonded states, reckon erron eously and illogically in citing in creased gasoline tax returns as con comitants of the public debts in curred in highway construction. The fallacious contention, which recently has been revived in Georgia is shat tered by figures obtained from the state auditor’s department respecting Georgia’s experience in the matter of gasoline tax returns. Asa matter of fact, sustained by figures or. record at the auditor’s de partment, Georgia’s gasoline tax re turns within the last few years have shown a greater increase than the revenues derived by the bonded states from the same source, and Georgia is committed against the is suance of highway bonds. The experience of Illinois in issu ing road bonds, it is said, has result ed in an increase of about 100 per cent in six years in the gasoline taxes collected by that state from the sale of fuel oil. The tax increase, it is argued, is wholly accountable to the bond issue, though no comparative figures as tp the rate of taxation are given. Whether the rate has been increased or remained stationary through the period of comparison is not indicated. Inquiry at the office of the state auditor Thursday morning disclosed that Georgia’s revenue from the fuel oil tax, involving the sale of gasoline has increased over 100 per cent since 1922, and this increase is figured on the same rate that applied in 1922. The figure cited relate only to so much of the fuel oil tax as is con verted into the general treasury, and the gneral treasury fixed allotment, under law, is the same today as it was in 1922, namely 1 cent a gal lon on each gallon of gasoline sold in the state. The proportionate part of the gasoline tax that was converted into the general fund in 1922 was $739,185.55. This, as remarked, rep resented 1 cent a gallon tax. In 1925, at the same rate of 1 cent a gallon, the general fund re ceived from the gasoline tax $1,338,- 868.59. For the first six months of the current year, and at the same rate Of 1 cent a gallon, the revenue re ceived by the general fund from the sale of gasoline has been $736,058.83. Thus, from the records, it is appar ent that the revenue from the sale of gasoline, for the first six months of 1926 in Georgia, was practically as much as for the whole year of 1922. And two last quarters of the year, the records show, unfailingly bring in a bigger return from gasoline sales than the first two quarters. In other words, the auditor’s de partment expects the 1926 increase in gasoline tax returns to exceed by considerably more than 100 per cent the revenue derived from the same source in 1922. From the records and compara tive figures, it is therefore apparent that although Georgia has issued no road bonds and has continued to op erate on the pay-as-you-go plan, the returns from the state’s gasoline tax has more than doubled since 1922. Should the figures quoted by bond advocates include increase of rates of taxation Georgia’s fuel oil tax has increased in total amount from about $700,000 in 1922 to over. $4,000,000 in 1925, or approximately six hun dred per cent.—Atlanta Journal.

GROVE'S signature oa each box. 30c Detours And Construction Politicians there may be who are so wise that they can build hard surfaced roads with no need for de tours while construction is going on, and so powerful that they can control the rain from heaven, making it to fall on field and garden, with never a drop cn ways of travel. But the Gainesville Eagle doubts that such wonder-workers are really to be found in Georgia, although there are partisans and propagandists for state bonds who seem fully equal to pro fessing those miraculous gifts. The Eagle’s remark is prompted by an attempt of theirs to misrepresent the roads of Hall county and to be little the work of the highway de partment. During the recent down pours a certain detour between Gainesville and Buford, around a stretch of the main road which is be ing hard surfaced, became soaked and heavy. Thereupon the camp of politics, whose strategy it is to dis credit or ignore what is being achiev ed for Georgia, set up a cry that ho tels were empty, that crop values were being destroyed, that ruin and desolation were threatened—all “On Account of State Highway.’’ The 1 incident would have been too trivial for comment save for the fact that it was so characteristic of the meth ods of extremists trying to force an immense state bond issue on the taxpayers. The Gainesville Eagle’s editorial rebuke of such tactics is supplemented by a trenchant thrust from Colonel H. H. Dean, who says in the course of his statement: “If one short five-mile detour which becomes impassable for a few r days, while a hard surfaced road is being constructed, has the effect of closing hotels, destroying peach crops and bringing financial loss to the country, what would happen should we undertake to construct five thou sand miles at one time with five thousand miles of detours as a con sequence? It would drive every tourist out of the state, close all the hotels, break every merchant, destroy ail our crops and devastate the state; we would be entirely iso lated for the next five years if de tours are such terrible things. At the present time there are more hard surfaced roads being constructed than ever before in the history pf our state. While every new construction compels a detour, I am glad to note there are few complaints, as most of the travelers realize the necessity of some inconvenience, especially in bad weather, while the state is pushing forward the highway construction.” Growth has its natural pains, and progress its inconveniences. But these, far from being a cause for downheartedness, are, to thinking men, the best of omens. If Georgia were not building highways, there would be no detours; their presence is proof of construction. And while certain overwrought inamginations profess to see wreck and ruin because their pet political schemes are not adopted, the old state moves steadily and prosperously forward, paying as she goes.—Atlanta Journal. POISON LIQUOR Persons who insist on disobeying the prohibition laws by drinking li quor that is now available through “bootleg” channels are taking their lives in their hands, according to authorities who have tested it. The “kick” is not worth the chance taken in drinking liquor, they say. Analysis shows that some of the booze is worthy the name of “coron er’s cocktails” because of the poi son it contains, and practically all is detrimental to health. The results of the tests made are borne out by deaths from bad liquor and acute alcoholism, as shown by health statistics. Every year since the, advent of na tional prohibition in 1919 there has been an increase in deaths from bad liquor and alcoholism. These facts have been brought out on a number of occasions since pro hibition became effective, but there are still countless men who are will ing to take their lives in their hands in order to quench their thirst.

Will you now come to my res cue? I want your aid. I need your help along the line of getting from one community to the other. Friends, you are in great need of my help. Will you wake up to your duty, and hitch up the jar-head mule, the long-tailed ox, or you can step on the gas, and come for me? I am anxious to reach as many of the communities and clubs as I can before the Southeastern Fair, to be held in October, in Atlanta. I don’t want you to stop to look up your white collar to put on to come for me; put on your clean blue work shirt, and overalls, and hurry after me. I am waiting! I have no way to reach these com munities, only by walking, and that is a slow go. Come for me, it is your duty; I am working to help you better your conditions. Come af ter me, I don’t care what you come in, just so my feet are swinging. There is a great demand for boys, girls, women and men, who can do 1 practical things. So come on after your “demon strator,” it is your duty. Help get old Jackson county ready for the Southeastern Fair, and I will assure you that old Jackson county will bring home the “bacon.” Love your county, love your demonstrator, and above all, love yourselves and God. Do your duty. Come carry me around; it is your duty. In the language of Burns: I would not give a copper placque, For any man who turns his back on duty clear, I would not trust him with a groat. Nor lift an oar in any boat, That he might steer. Your humble (Col.) demonstrator. Mattie R. Torbert. WHILE CHANGES ARE BEING MADE (By Edgar A. Guest) I may be foolish, but when she Decided that she’d like to make A sun room, just for beauty’s sake And build another room to be A slumber chamber. “Yes,” said I, “We’ll make those changes in July.” I like the house the way it stands, Here I could dwell till death shall come, Without that tiled solarium, But since it’s something she demands, This latest whim I won’t deny, We’ll make those changes in July. Rip, carpenters, and bang about! Go to it, masons, all you wish! I’m on Lake Huron catching fish, I cannot hear the plumber shout. Go to it, fellow! Bang and pound I shan’t be there to hear a sound! I’ve been thru changes once before, I’ve swallowed dust and tried to be At home with earnest carpentry, And once will last forevermore When masons and plunders enter here ® I pack my grip and disappear. Now here beside the lake I sit, And while those workmen put up shelves And build that room to suit themselves, if they’re honest they’lll admit, It suitg them better thru the day.
