MAILS WILL SOON BE BULKY.
Parcels Post System Plans Are Made Public and the New Law Will Be in Force January 1, 1913 Regulations to cover the workings of the new parcels post system, which is to go into operation on January 1st next, were made public last Thursday by Postmaster General Hitchcock. The new system will be effective through out the entire postal service at the same time and will affect every post office, city, rural and railway mail transportation route in the country. Every precaution will be taken by the postofflce department to have the mails moved with the usual dispatch, and all postmasters, superintendents and inspectors have been directed to familiarize themselves and their sub ordinates with every phase of the new system. Mr. Hitchcock expressed the hope that the public familiarize itself with the nature of the new service before attempting, to use it. Information will be available ?t any postofflce in the country in a few days. Law's Provisions. The regulations provide that parcels of merchandise, including farm and factory product (but not books and printed matter) of almost every de scription up to eleven pounds in weight, and measuring as much as six feet in length and girth combined, except those calculated to do injury to the mails in transit, may be mailed to any postofflce for delivery to any address in the country. Deliveries will be made to the home of people living on rural and star routes, as well as those living in cities and towns where there is delivery by carrier. Where there is at present no delivery by carrier the parcels will go to the postofflce, as is the case with ordinary mail. The postage rate for the first zone —that is, within distances not ex ceeding fifty miles—will be 5 cents for the first pound and 3 cents for each additional pound. Insurance Fee 10 Cents. For a fee of 10 cents a parcel may be insured, and if the parcel is lost in the mails an indemnity to the amount of its value not to exceed $50 will be paid to the sender. The law provides for the use of dis tinctive postage stamps and there is now being distributed to postmasters for use in the parcels post system a set of stamps of twelve denomina tions. Parcels post maps, with ac companying guides, are to be sold to the public at their cost, 75 cents, through the chief clerk of the post office department. LENT COMMENCES EARLY. Date for Easter Sunday, and Hence for Beginning of Lenten Season, Earliest Since Year 1818. Denison people who cease their so cial activities with the beginning of lent will find the social season for 1912-13 one of the shortest on record, owing to the fact that Ash Wednes day, the first day of lent, falls this season on February 12th, the earliest date since 1818. Next Easter will fall on March 23d, one day later than the earliest pos sible date for the annual church fes tival. In accord with the decree of the council of Nice, Easter is always the first Sunday after the full moon that falls on or next after the vernal equinox, usually occurring March 21st. If the full moon happens on Sunday, Easter is .celebrated a week later. The date of the full moon is ascer tained by certain calendar rules and may differ from that of the actual or astronomical full moon. These rules include as preliminaries the finding of the golden number, the epact and the dominican letter. The golden letter for 1913 is lourteen, the epact twenty-two and the dominican letter "E." Easter in 1912 was late, April 7th, and in 1914 will again permit a long social season, the festival falling on April 12th. The early beginning of lent brings festivities to a close soon afcer the holidays this year, cutting out possi bilities of Valentine dances, Martha Washington festivities and all sorts of February celebrations for those who observe the penitential season.

Later Miss Minnie Brake rendered some fine piano selections and Master Wesley Brake sang two solos, which were heartily applauded.

After din ner was over, Rev. Joseph Stephen called the company to order and gave short talk, presenting the gifts, which included many very fine silver pieces which show the esteem in whch Mr. and Mrs. Brake are held.

Skinner, Retiring Presi dent of International Stock Show —Advises How to Cook. The price of beef is up to stay. Porterhouse steaks, sirloins and other "extra good" cuts will never be cheap er, accoding to W. E. Skinner, retir ing president of the International Live Stock exposition, which closed at Chi cago recently. But, President Skinner adds, there need be no calamity howl over the situation because the housewife can (and many of them are doing it now) have just as good meat, just as tender and juicy steaks, and just as nourish ing and healthful meat delicacies that will cost no more than her grand mother paid. "It's all in knowing how to cook," said President Skinner. "Throw a flank steak (one of the cheaper cuts) in a hot pan. Braze it. Smother it in tomato Creole and bake for twenty to thirty minutes. The result would make a porterhouse blush for shame." President Skinner owns some of the finest cattle in the world.

Flank steaks, round steaks, pot roasts, stews and boiling pieces are his choice. His wife knows how to cook them, he said. "The average housewife knows how to cook about twenty per cent of the cow," said President Skinner. "That isn't fair to the cow. You can't ex pect a cow to supply the demand. Few housewives ever think of buying a round steak.
