In changing from steam powor to
electric power for Its enormous city
and suburban pas-
Bonger traffic, tho
Herlln Stndtbnhn
has decided to
uso electric loco
motives, one at
each end of all
long trains, In
stead of having
each conch fitted
with motors to run
Boparatuiy it Is said 557 locomotives
will bo used with COO passenger coach
es and 29 repair cars. When two or
moro locomotives aro coupled to tho
samo train, as circumstances demand,
theso will bo operated by one man
by means of a simplified multiple-unit
Bystom. Tho nssortlon Is mado that
6xpcrlonco gained with electric loco
motives in Gormnny shows that main
tenance costs are below those of motor
coaches. Tho locomotive has largo
liaullng powers and one such engine
can theroforo tako tho place of many
motor conches. Added to this, tho
motors and other electrical gear aro
very accessible, which Is an Impor
tant Item from tho point of cleaning
find repairs. It also appears that
slnco tho motors of electric locomo
tivos are sprlng-bomo and placed high
up In tho body, thero is less noise and
vibration, as compared with motor
coaches, and that they do less damago
to tho track. During tho busiest hours
of tho day, when tho traffic is heaviest,
tho trains will be mado up of 13 six
wheel coacheB, which will bo propelled
by two locomotives, ono at each end
of tho train. At other times, when tho
railway Is less busy, tho trains will
consist of five or eight cars, which
will bo coupled to a single locomotivo.
Trains made up in this manner can be
driven from either end by fitting the
last coach with a controller. Popular

Experienco has been m- only school
which, perhaps, accounts for the
fact that I hold no opinions half
heartcdly. Especially about cooking.
It scorns to mo tho finest of fine arts,
all too much misprised, and held a
drudgery Instead of a privilege. Pos
slbly this makcB mo reactionary a
holdor-fast to old methods. Certainly
when Qoyor's paper bag cookery was"
suggested to me, thero was not a
stouter skeptic In alt theso united
States. Soyor's experience did noth
ing to change my mind. Rather, It
convinced mo that paper bag cooking
was one of tho things that cost more
than they come to. For I set myself
this sum. Bags, plus greasing, plus
clips, equal tho cost of many sauce
pans. Furthermore, It Is against
sense and reason that tho mere put
ting of food In a bag should either
hasten tho cooking or bettor tho fla
vor of it. Thus I argued tho case
forthrlghtly, but ended by conces
sion -I would try out paper bags and
see what I should see.
Tho first bag left mo warmly tri
umphant. Wisdom ferments Ilk, yeast. As 1
acquired it, thero was no keeping it
to myself. It dripped down upon my
next story rfelghbor, a cook both born
and made. Sho was Interested but
skeptical less so than I had been,
notwithstanding of an open mind. So
when I proposed an experiment a
culinary duel, if you please whose
result was tp be decided by the scales,
sho was ready, oven eager to engage
in it
Each of us bought a rib roast hers
weighing four pounds, mine but three.
To tho eye, they were Identical save
In the matter of size And our gas
ranges are oven-brothers, mado by ex
actly the same pattern. Her roast
went into a pan, mine into a bag. Not
having to baste nor watch mine, after
tho flame was turned down properly,
I had liberty to run in on her and see
how sho fared. She was doing her
best a best that is superlative,
watching and basting her beef with
the skill of a chef. The result was
something beautiful to behold when
she took it out after little moro than
an hour. Mine was still In the oven,
its bag Intact, though I had turned
out tho gas after forty-five minutes.
It had not been on full for forty min
utes, whereas my neighbor had kept
hers lowered only the least bit. The
exact saving of gas I do not under
take to compute but that thero was
a saving Is beyond question.
The scales showed her roast tc
have lost in weight a fraction over
nine ounces. Mine, lighter by a
pound, had lost a fraction under two
ounces. Furthermore, all the strength
of my meat was in the gravy. A fifth
at least of hers remained sticking tc
the pan, though she treated it in the
usual way. We reckoned that a pa
per bag would have saved her a hall
pound weight of beef, equivalent to
twelve cents, the cost of many papot
bags. Indeed, I felt that tho gas sav
ing alone would have more than paid
for the bag, the clips, tho greasing.
Moreover, my beef was tenderer than
hers, had a richer taste, and was
Smothered Chtcken. Havo a good
sized broiler cut Into Joints, taking
care not to leave sharp bones to the
Joints. Salt and pepper them lightly,
dredge with flour and lay in a well
greased bag upon thin slices of bacon.
Cover with moro bacon slices, taking
care to keep the chickon spread
rather flat Add a tablespoonful ol
water, or a couple of peeled and
sliced tomatoes. Shreds of green pep
per add somewhat of flavor to tho to
matoes. Seal in bag and cook foi
forty minutes, slacking heat almost
half after the first five minutes.

Sirloin, Round, or Ribs of Beef.
Grease well with drippings (but this
is not absolutely necessary). Put the
Joint In a bag. Do not season the
Joint before cooking. Put tho Joint on
a broiler, in a moderate oven. For a
three-pound Joint allow forty-five
minutes; a seven-pound Joint, an hour
and twenty minutes; fourteen pounds,
two hours and fifteen minutes.
Veal Mutton, or Pork can be cooked
In tho same way as beef. If a thick
gravy Is requlrod, roll tho Joint in
flour before placing in the bag. Al
low tho same tlmo as for beef.
Roast Chicken. Cover tho breast
of tho fowl or chicken with butter or
drippings, or, better still, tio a piece
of fat bacon over It iMace In a bag
and set on broiler- In a hot oven. Al
low twenty-five minutes for a small
spring chicken, thirty-five minutes for
a largo fowl, forty-five to fifty min
utes (according to size) for stuffed
poultry or game, in a moderate oven.
Roast Turkey or Goose. Allow one
and a quarter hours In a moderate
oven; If stuffed, allow ono hour and
forty-flvo minutes to two hours.
Roast Pigeon. This requires very
dellcato cooking. My method cooks
a pigeon to perfection, whether it le
stuffed or not. To roast, allow fifteen
minutes in a very hot oven; if stuffed,
allow twenty to twenty-five minutes
