WASHINGTON GOSSIP Certain political wiseacres fond of taking long-range views of things are talking about "McAdoo and Murdock" as the Democratic slogan in 1924. It ia to be the ticket, they will tell you. to be nominated by a new combination of Democrats and Progressives. A Rooseveltion of Rooseveltians and chairman of the Progressive national committee from 1914 to 1916, Mr. Murdock is envisaged as the man who would rally around the Democratic banner millions of Republicans sat iated with "old guard" leadership, yet traditionally hostile to third-par ty movements. Since President Wil son appointed him a Republican mem ber of the Federal Trade Commission in 1917 and reappointed him for the term expiring in 1925 Mr. Murdock has hobnobbed on terms of more or less intimacy with the Wilsonian wing of the Democratic party.

The action of the state game depart ment in permitting a bunch of oil mag nates from Oklahoma to invade Cham berlain Basin with 50 dogs and a full hunting equipment is being censured generally by the sportsmen of this section of Idaho. Here is what Mark Bates thinks about i: Any man, or bunch of men, who will take 50 dogs into a game count ry to hunt should be chased out of the country. He is not a sportsman, and he goes beyond the accepted de finition of a game hog. The fact that these men are wealthy makes the fense only more contemptible. Besides the game they dedtkoy the dog inevitably chase the remainder out of the country, and ruin one of the few remaining big game sections Ihe west. If there is no other* way prevent the calamity that is bound follow this incursion of misbegotten game destroyers, every dog found running at large in the Chamberlain during their invasion should be killed on sight. It is rather hard on the dogs, and they are not the offenders; in fact, they are better citizens than the men who take them there. But the game in the Chamberlain must be protected. The sportsmen of Idaho will hold the state- game department to a strict account in this matter; of this there is no doubt. And then the men in the forest service in the Cham mriain this summer should gb gun ning for dogs every day. Twx> men with 50 dogs in the Chamberlain!

The federal maternity bill, provid .. ing for federal co-operation with the " ; sûtes in promoting the welfare of maternity and infancy, was signed by President Harding November 23, 1921. The children's bureau of the United States department of labor is given the administration of the act. A board of patrnity and infant hygiene, con sisting of the chief of the children's bureau, the surgeon general of the United States Public health service, and the United States commissioner of education, is given certain powers of review and approval. A total ap propriation of >1.480,000 is authorized for the current fiscal year, and an ap propriation of >1,240,000 for each of five years thereafter.

SOAPMAKINQ IN DAYS OF OLD Hoge and Ashes Utilized to Good Ad vantage During the Youth of Our Grandmothers. In the days of our grandmothers, soap was an ex pensive luxury and hard to obtain, every country housewife made her own soft soap, says the Kansas City Star. Enough was made at one time to last-the whole year. The light of the moon In March was considered the proper time for the soapmaking and a sassafras stick must be used for stirring. When the' hogs were butchered for the yearly Supply of meat the house wife carefully cleaned and washed the entrails and salted them down until soapmaklng time. Also all scraps of meat and rinds were saved to be used. When the ashes were removed from the fireplace during the winter months they were placed in a large hopper built for that purpose and kept care fully covered until about a week be fore the time for making 'soap. Then the children would carry water each day and pour over the ashes and start the "hopper to running" to make the lye for the snap. When enough lye had run to mak* the soap it was placed In a large ket tie over an outdoor fire and boiled un til It became strong enough to "cut a feather." Then the soap grease was put In and the mixture kept at the boiling point and stirred continuously until the lye had eaten all the grease and the mixture had become a thick, soft mass of soap. The snap was placed In barrels and used for laundry purposes. Albanian Humor. An Albanian barber shop, were there any, would have periodical va cations. For the hair must not be cut For must not be cut during tbe new moon, lest It turn white. One Albanian explained to traveler that his mustache was white because lie had clipped It thoughtless ly at new moon. Fortunately he had waited until the moon was on the wsne to trim his hair. The things that people laugh at might readily be considered an Index to their development.
