Ho, to the Rescue I
In tho olden days ono of Iho
spectacular performances regularly
pulled off lu each succeeding con
gress was a motion to strike out tho
appropriation for tho Omaha Indian
supply depot, which would bo on tho
point of carrying, when, at Just tho
psychological moment "Our Dave"
would rush to tho rescuo and save
tho child. Of this brave act his con
stituents would be duly reminded In
due time before solicited to cast their
votes for him for re-election.
It is to bo feared, however, that
tho present action of the house with
drawing tho appropriation for all tho
Indian supply depots is of a moro
serious nature, and that if Omaha
Is to retain this branch of tho govern
ment service measures will have to
bo taken In conjunction with other
clttos affected to show the advantage
to tho government of this system of
supply distribution. It has been dem
onstrated before, and it can doubtless
bo demonstrated again, that purchase
of Indian supplies at wholesale, with
tho consequent benefit of carload
transportation rates to tho proporly
located distributing centers, produces
both economy and efficiency.
It dovolves on our delegation In
congress, and particularly on our
United States senator, to look out for
Omaha's interests in this matter.

The Cost of I.IvIiik Problem Solved.
OMAHA, Kcb. 18. To' the Editor of The
Beo: Tho high cost of living problem has
been solved by n. woman In our city,
and If her own personal experi
ence and knowlcdgo can be formed into
a' propaganda and taught to the younger
women of the day, one ot the moat Im
portant of the arts will not have been
lost, as It bids now to be. Not a hundred
miles from the corner ot Fornam and
Twenty-third streets Is a 'dining room
presided over by a woman of the bid
school, now fast disappearing, who cooks
for the sheer love of it and a mother's
philanthropic duty to her own and other
people's children, who does not put an
extravagant valuation on her services,
but thinks they should be giVeh to those
of small means who require the ndurlsh
ment of pure food, well cooked.
This exceptional paragon of tho house
keeper can purchase food, prcparo It in
her own Inimitable way and servo it for
.TO cents a meal. It the horde ot young
women seeking fame on the stago or

bo Induced .to do so), a science which
would put all those taught, on tho direct
road to husbandom and correct many ot

in their own hands.
If this household genius can communi
