Before "undertaking' to prepare dishes for the Invalid who is on the road to re teovery you must know what foods are best for a stomach that has become de? bilitated by illness, and must remember ithat coarse, solid foods are apt to be re? volting' rather than attractive.

NOTES OF StllPriSU. if - The most detailed investigation of the tr*..tl<>s of speed, horse-power and coal oorisuniiption that has (been'made is that oon.JtK'tod by Sir John Durston, of the steam engineering department of the British navy, lllis experiments were ?conducted with the second-class cruiser Mighfiyer, recently completed at Glas tgevv. It was ascertained that a horse? power of 2,135 'was suflieient to drive j tiiis ship at a speed of 12 1-2 knots an hour. But it required 7.644 ihorse-power j to drive her at the speed <>f 19.4 knots. To get an increase of 55 per cent, in spool required an increase of 2S5 per cent, in power. The speed was then in? creased to 20.1 knots, and this cost an -additional 2,700 horse-power, or a good ?deal more 'than the power to drive the ship tho first 12 1-2 knots. At each of these speeds the ship was driven for eight- hours so that the test was fairly cotr.plete. 'The consumption of coal dikl not rise ?so 'fast as 'the horse-power. ...

JF - The iron ore product of the Lake 'Superior region, which will be for the current year not less than 17,000,000 tons, is largely shipped by the lake rx>ute to the furnaces dependent upon this source of supply.
