Camp Supplies and Camp Recipei.
For camp cooking any recipe that
requires few ingredients and is easily
prepared will prove satisfactory.
Since the era of the tireless cooker it
is possible to prepare foods requiring
long cooking, but simple recipes are
still the most dcsiraMe. For a camp
ing trip in this vicinity it is unneces
sary to take heavy supplies, for it is
not likely that one will get far from
civilization. The followint lists are
suggested for trips in less thickly
settled parts of the country:

They look fine and are of good size.
Cantaloupes have arrived to join

taloupes are of fine flavor and mellow
texture, though they arc the first of
the present season. They sell around

There are twenty-ti.o essays and
addresses inJhis volume, carefully
chosen to reflect diverging view
points and to emphasize salient
doctrines. A bibliography arranged
by periods follows. Every student of
this movement will feel indebted to
the compiler, since an open forum of
concurrent opinion, such as this, is of
far more value than an individual
belief, however ably expressed.
THE MYSTERIES OF THE FLOWERS. ?y
Herbert W. Faulkner. New York. Fred
erick A. Stokes company. 42.00.
The author describes the many va
rieties of American wild flowers, their
mechanisms, and their methods of in
terchanging pollen. He shows their
individual and ingenious schemes for
luring the bee and butterfly, who are
so indispensable to their life. The
book goes deeper than botany, which
seeks merely to name and classify the
flowers and reveals them as eager liv
ing things, flourishing in spite of dif
ficulties and attaining t the beauty
of perfect living.

The most wonderful military book

overcomes them. It shows how a
company is organized; the instruction
of the men on the hike, in the field
