FIELD-WORKERS IN THE WOMAN'S LAND ARMY OF FRANCE Wherever an acre in Flanders has escaped the torch of the invader the women of France are exerting every effort to make the farms bring forth their utmost yield. A movement is now on foot among the women of America to emulate this example of their sister farmers in Allied lands. The Flanders Company, Detroit, Michigan. J. H. Fowler Company, Westfield, Mass.

It is suggested that the householders in a community cover with their first pound orders the whole list of manufacturers, and by com paring notes and samples they will soon dis cover which are the best for their uses. The fact should always be kept in mind that this dried-vegetable industry is a new one, and that the quality of the product produced by the different firms varies greatly. Some are, no doubt, doomed to failure, whereas others are so excellent that they are bound to succeed. To praise or condemn all makes of dried vegetables from the sampling of a few brands is to generalize too quickly.
