Selection of Cooking; .tensile. ,
Steel will be found smoother than Iron,
and It will last longer, because It does iu;t
break so easily. . Do not purchase cheap
tinware; if of good quality tinware will last
well for a long time, and It Is excellent
for many purposes. Such articles of food
as layer cake, or anything that requires
quick cooking, are best cooked in tin, but
neither tin, Iron, .nor steel should be used
for acid foods. Peas and beans will not
cook soft In enamel ware, but will soften
quickly in a tin saucepan. Fruit .should
never be cooked In tin or Iron, but only
In porcelain or enamel lined saucepans;
neither should tin be used for frying, boll
ing coffee, or for any purpose when It must
be exposed to Intense heat, for tin melts
at a very low temperature, and If exposed
to heat at a high temperature the result
Is apt to be disastrous. '
Aluminum ware Is, of course, the very
best of all. It Is light in weight, very clean
looking, as it really Is, and altogether It
seems to leave nothing to be desired. It Is
very expensive, however, although its pur
chase Is economy In the eud. A simple
washing with pure soapsuds and warm
water, then a thorough drying, Is all that
Is necessary to keep aluminum bright.
i Strong soaps andj powders must not be used
on it, or it will become discolored. "
For baking dishes, bowls, custard cups,
and the like, the little brown German-ware
dishes are cleanly and pretty they are
creamy white Inside. At the first, empty
quart milk bottles with a metal top will
bo found excellent for keeping cereals and
other supplies. They do net take up much
room on the shelf and for this reason are
preferable to crockery Jars. One can also
see the contents at a glance. Later on, the
Jars may be purchased If one desires them,
for they are very pretty, but do not at first

Alias Bobby Howe.
SUSPECTED OF OTHER RECENT CRIMES
Notorious Desperado Who Is
Omaha Pending; Trial . In
Chicago on Indictment
After much research Chief of Uetectlves
Savage and his men have discovered the
man who robbed the Byron Reed collec
tion of coins In the public library building
last Frldny night, the home of R. A.
Thompson, 2924 North Sixteenth street on
the afternoon of February 7, and the resi
dence of Robert Rosenswelg, 3302 Harney
about two weefts ago. Is Harry Morris alias
cracksman and burglar. He Is now under
indictment for, burglary at Chicago, but
was released on bail pending his trial and
Is now believed to be In Omaha, where he
came several weeks ago for the purpose
of entering upon his career of crime. No
trace of n,m ln the c,ty has bcen obtained,
but his arrest Is believed to be assured
within a few days If he still Is In Omaha.
Norris answers the description in every
particular of the burglar, that held up
Watchman Peterson at the Public library
Friday night and stole 103 United States
coins of the vtlue of 1146.66 from the
Byson Reed" collection. The burglar was
masked with a blue sllx muffler so that his
features could not be distinctly seen by the
watchman, but ln every other respect the
man's description coincides exactly with
that of Norris and the police are positive
that Norris Is guilty of the burglary.

FACTS ABOUT CHILD LABOR
Indians Senator's Statements Con
trasted vrlth Census Office
In his recent speech on child labor Sen-
ator Beverldge said: "Certainly hundreds
of thousands and mn nrnhihW nvr 1 Olia.
iu i.ii j - -..l
, j - i
! """" " "P f""""! "
All the support he produced for' this ter
rible reflection upon American parents was
contained in the statement on the authority
of the census that nearly 2,000,000 children
are now at work and of these almost 700,0-jO
are engaged In work other than agriculture.
To this statement he added: "Child labor on
the farm Is good. Tho bill does not strike
at that. It strikes only at child labor ln
the factories, sweatshops and mines."
This Implies that nearly 700,000 are em
ployed In those deadly places, and even
that number Is more than 300,000 short of
the million and more that the senator said
; Were probably being killed or utterly ae
1 stroyed there. .
The dayftor Mr. Beverldge made his
speech the census bureau Issued a bulletin
showing that In 1900 the number of children
employed as "breadwinners" In this coun
try was 1,750,000, round figures. Of thse
! 1,064.000 were at work on farms. 138.000 were
In domestic service and 72,000 were mes-'
songcr, errand and office boys.
If farmwork Is good for children cer
tainly domestic service for girls and mes
senger and like service for bnys can hardly
uttcr, destructive of their
! lt app(ar8i therefore, tl
ppears, therefore, that at least
1 1,264,000 of these breadwlnnlng children were
employed In ways likely to do them more
good than harm.
This seduces the number otherwise em
ployed to 480,000. Here the synopsis of the
bulletin ' telegraphed from Washington
leaves much to be desired. Put It gives
enough facts to Indicate that not very many
of these are employed In the deadly places.
Among the worst of those places, accord
ing to Mr. Beverldgev are cotton factories.
As to them the bulletin says that' they
furnish employment to children to a greater
extent than any other manufacturing or
mechanical Industry. And It states .the num
ber of children employed ln those factories
at 44,127. This Is for the whole country,
and the complaint has been almost entirely
of conditions In southern mills.
Next we find under the head of "textile
workers or the needle trades" 35,07a Then
there are ll,4t2 ln tobacco factories and 5.3-35
1H glassworks. As the cotton mills employ
more than any other manufacturing or me
chanical Industries and as the "needle
trades" undoubtedly Include "sweatshops."
we have to conclude that, 160,000 would be a
high figure for the number employed in
child-killing . factories.
The synopsis says nothing about the
children employed about mines, but It Is
safe to say that the numter Is small.
Probably not 200,000 all told are employed
In the "factories, sweatshops and mines"
at which the Beverldge bill strikes. Prob
ably, too; not one-fourth of these work un
der killing or destructive conditions. And
so the senator's million or more drop out of
sight ln the light of facts like Falstaff's
men in buckram. Chicago Chronicle.
A branch of business conducted by a
Philadelphia establishment devoted to sup
plying and boarding feathered pets Is that
of preparing dead birds for burial. Children
who have lost their canaries or other song

out in becoming style. Ting coffins, each
Just large enough for a bird, are kept In
stock, also quantities of pale pink end blue
cotton. The latter Is used for filling the
bird coffin, and on this the bird ' laid. The
effect when birdie's body is -decently"
composed on the pink and blue cotton Is
sufficient to console the little mourning
master or mistress. The children then con
vey their coffin away for burial. Funeral

legislature to take up tho charges tiled by
the Civic Federation," tho mayor said. "But
the governor did say that when ho took
the matter up he would go right through

PORCUPINE GOES TO SCHOOL
Hae Rampna with Gronndhns, he
Throws Him Ont of His
When Janitor Thomas Hamlin of the
Ieavenworth street public school reached
his post of duty at 5:30 Friday morning he
found a visitor whose name was not en
rolled on the school roster meekly sitting
on the front steps. The stranger was a
porcupine, with his quills at tangent nil
ready for any familiarity the Janitor might
show. But lt happened that Mr. Hamlin
was not familiar with porcupines, so he
made haste slowly by driving the little
fellow to the back of tho school, finally
getting him Into the furnace room.
Once ln the furnace room Mr. Porcupine
took a survey of the heating apparatus of
a modern school building and then huddled
up In a corner and blinked his eyes! Like
Msry's historic mutton, which was rec
orded as having accompanied Mary to a
certain seaf of learning, the porcuplno made
the puplln "laugh and play." The kinder
garten class was highly amused when Its
teacher told them a porcupine had come
to the school and was waiting on the front
steps at 6:30 a. m. for school to open.
"My children, you could all take a lesson
from the porcupine by being on time to
school," the kind teacher said.
Superintendent Adnms of the park honrd
was notified, but he said there were no
porcupines to hln. knowledge In any of
the Omaha parks. Mr. Hamlin offered to
give the animal to the park board, unless
some rightful claimant calls for tho fursy
It was reported Frldny morning thnt this
porcupine and , the groundhog the one
which saw his shadow February 2 have
been hibernating together during the win
ter and hnd a rumpus Thursday night
over the question of whether there would
be six weeks more winter or not. It Is
believed the groundhog took the law In
his own hands and threw the porcupine
over the transom.
