The PoslmasterGeneral is quoted as
sayingthatbut for the cost of carry
ing franked political mail during the
primary caniDaign the postofiiee ac
count would have shown a surplus of
more than a million dollars' instead of
a deficit of. Jl, 781, 000 "for the fiscal
year of 1912.
The franked matter, it appears, con
stituted about 4 per cent of all the do
mestic mail handled during the fiscal
year and aggregated 310,245,000 pieces,
weighing 61,377.000 pounds. Had all
the purely political matter been elimi
nated this enormous burden of mail
would hava been greatly reduced.
There can be no reasonable objection
to the franking of important docu
ments, such as department and bureau
reports, bulletins and other publica
tions that are of general interest. Nor
will anyone question the use of the
frank for official correspondence or the
transactions of government business.
There is no good reason, however that
the mails should be, clogged with pub
lications prepared solely for campaign
purposes and sent out in unlimited
quantities, free of postage. A great
deal of this sort of business was in ev
idence during the recent ."presidential
campaign and such matter was mailed
under franks that could notbv any
stretch of the imagination come under
the designation of public or official
documents. Much of this matter is
made frankable by insertion in the
Congressional Record. In this wav
the government bears the expense ot
printing and circulating campaign
documents and the Record is padded
to undue proportions with pxtrpneous
This abuse is chargeable to no one
partyTsince membersof aljparties are
guilty'of it and have persistedj in it
for years. Postoffice Department offi
cials very generally have. recognized it
1 'and protested against it. A Demo
cratic administration pledged to re
trenchment and reform should be able
to do something toward restricting the
franking privilege to legitimate uses.

Man in the Kitchen.
When mere man really tries he not
infrequently proves himself, not sim
ply a good cook, but a culinary genius.
The superiority of the expert man chef
over the best ot women cooks is suffi
ciently attested by their contrasting
But tew men ever try seriously to
master the art of cooking. Deep down
in their own minds they are quite con
vinced that thev could master it were
they to put forth the effort, but few
of them see any real reason for trying.
The result has been that the man in
the kitchen is usually wholly out of
his element. Lacking experience he
also lacks confidence and if he tries to
help he or.lv succeeds in proving him
oelf an unmitigated nuisance.
A popular New York cooking school
has set aside one evening each week
for imparting instruction to a class of
men. This shows that there are some
Wn who not only want to learn to
cook, but are willing to confess their
interest. They may he the rare ex
ceptions, but it. would be well for men
and well for women, too, if more of
the former were to start in learning
at least the rudiments of the art.
Then, instead of being nuisances when
they invade the kitchen, they would
become truly, useful. It is also likely
that with sufficient experience to
show them how easily mistakes could
be made they would be less inclined
to find fault when the finished product
is set before them. Cooking schools
for men are institutions that deserve
encouragement, especially from wives
who suffer much mental anguish be
cause of the grumbling of uneducated
and unappreciative husbands.
