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 slight cooking - utensils for receptacles ln which to keep food.

SUSPECTED OF OTHER RECENT CRIMES Notorious Desperado Who Is Omaha Pending; Trial . In Chicago on Indictment for Burglary. 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 ..rr. 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.

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""""! " :;f pends." 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 bodies and 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.

"I've watched that fellow for the last five years," continued the politician, "and I'll swear that he lets every friend that gives him a 5-cent cigar at the end of the week ride free." "Don't be so hard on him," remonstrated the other man. "Maybe that's only a pe culiar habit of covering the ticket that he's gotten into." "Not on your life," returned the politi cian. "I know what I'm talking about. He tried it on me once, just because I got in the habit of saying 'good morning' to him, but I woMldn't stand for such dishonesty; he didn't corrupt me." "How do you know whether he forgot to punch your ticket or not?" questioned the politician's friend. "Very simple. I Just put down the next number to be punched on a piece of paper. so I wouldn't forget It. It was sixteen, the number, and Monday morning I started to keep tab on him, and on the following Saturday sixteen was still there. An then I bawled him out right. It made me so mad. I wouldn't stand for his monkey business, and I told him so in language he could understand as plainly as anybody in the car." "But why are you Buch a stickler for honesty?" asked his friend. "It doesn't pay; you'd have saved V) cents a week if you'd kept still." " "I'd have saved 80 cents a' week, noth ing," retorted the politician. "No, lt would have been all right if there was any sav ing In It, but the Saturday I bawled him out I Just happened to think that I was traveling on a monthly ticket, you see, and It didn't make a d d bit of difference to me whether he punched It or not."

' t 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 little animal. 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. Now is the time to make your want known through The B,ee Want Ad Page.
