She makes it best who, looking after the
culinary department, turns her back resolute
ly upon unhealthful, or even suspicious, food

statements of the experts that the best cook

Parcels Post Docs Overwhelming
Reports from all over the country
for the first week of the parcels
post service show that more than 7,
500,000 packages were handled in
that time. If this business grows
in the same proportions that other
new ventures increase, it will not be
long until the express package will
be a dim recollection. The govern
ment has every advantage in this
matter, as it already has help to
handle the business, and reaches
thousands of points that the express
people cannot touch, every postoffice
being open for the dispatch and re
ceipt of packages. There are glar
ing defects in the parcels post law
as now framed, but these will all be
eliminated, and the service improv
