"The b5st for, the least mone ," holds
good at the quartermaster's depot.
For twenty vears Caotain Cantlon
has been buying supplies for the army.
He is an expert in all lines. In the
course of a day's work he p sses upon
borax and brushes, chocolate and

would do well to take a few lessons

Pork an' Beans.
After tasting the chocolate candy,
in which delightful task The Bee
photographer snapped him, the cap
tain turned to some substantial-looking
cans of baked beans.
"Let's see po'k and beans, seven
thousand cans," he mused, in his vel
vety southern voice. The captain
happens to be a New Yorker and has
lived in every part of the union but
the south. How he acquired that ac
cent is a mystery to all.
"Here's a nice, big can comes
cheap," suggested his assistant, E. E.
Willard. The captain opened it deft

.No tomato sauce, he commented
briefly. After twenty years of cater-,

Another can was opened. This was
full of fine, fat beans, swimming in
rich red tomato saucei Acasual ob
server would have marked it "passed"
at once. But not Captain Cantlon,
versed as he is in the wiles of bean
canners. Picking up a big spoon he
stirred the contents thoroughly and
pushed this can, too, aside.
"No rj'ok." was the explanation,
When Uncle Sam is paying for pork
and beans, Captain Cantlon is going
to see that he and the boys get pork
and -beans, not just beans. 1
Finally a perfect can -was found,
with beans, sauce and pork to suit the
exacting taster. An Iowa firm was the
lucky cannery that at oncegot an order
for 7,000 cans of baked beans. Many
