RECORDS ARE GONE Wife of Former Official Is Alleged to Have Taken Them and Refused to Turn Them Over When Called Upon to Do So. Washington. April 24.-As a result of the investigation of the postoffice department affair Postmaster f;ener al Payne Thursday announced the summary dismissal of James N. TV ner, assistant attorney general tot the postoffice department, and charger that all the papers and records in tn' safe of Tyner s office had been ab stracted by Mrs. Tyner. wife of tn' dischargd officer, with the assistancr of others. The postmater g'nera says that Mrs. Tyner had refused the demand of the government for the pa pers, and said circumstances in thi case would be submitted by him to the department of justice at once. Th. question of arrests is now under con sideration, and will be passed on im mediately by Attorney General Knox Mrs. Tyner carre to the office of the assistant general attorney at 5:45 p en. Tuesday and remained there exact ly an hour. Mr. 3ridlow asked au thority to have Mrs. Tyner ejecteor from the office The authority caine too late. When the inspector returned Mrs. Tyner had left. The safe, on he In, examined, was f[ound to be empt v The affair created much excitemnit among the investigating officials, itt the news was concealed carefully lron We public. Two inspectors were trrs patched to the Tyner residence to re cover the papers. Mrs. Tyner refused 4 give them up, saying she was acting under the direction of her husband She told the inspectors, so they report ed, that they had no right to the pa pers, as Mr. Tyner was still assistant attorney general, and, moreover, in sisted that the papers were all of a private charcter.

Many of the long, narrow tins In which a pound of delicate crackers are packed make the nicest pans for bak ing a small loaf of cake. There is one variety, however, to avoid. It is the tin with a rolled over edge inside. If you bake cake In this pan, a struggle awaits you when It conies to get it out whole. One pound baking powder or cocoa cans bake small cakes nicely and allow them to be cut in sightly round slices. If possible, never use coarse granu lated sugar in making cake. The re sult is a coarse texture and a hard crust. no matter how carefully the bat ter has been mixed. A very "must have" for cake is a wire stand for cooling it when taken from the pan. This small utensil canii be purchased for 10 cents. It earns its cost many times over, for quick cooling is a vast improvement over setting hot cake on the bottom of the tin from which it has just been taken. All the moisture which is evaporated when cake rests on a cooler remains in it and tends to make it wet and heavy whln set on a solid surface. Never attempt to bake sponge rake unless you have a tire which will slow down to a very moderate heat and keep about that temperature. The whites of eggs which are really new laid-not more than twenty-four hours--will not beit to the dry fr-it demanded in so nitny recipes. Anote er reason why the whites of good fresh eggs will not froth in hot weather i. because they have not been chilled Eggs for cake baking should always be stored in the refrigerator. Many a cooking teacher instructs a pupil to listen whether -a -;ke sings in the tin or nii. T-Iy -lyaiii wheti the 'singing" is almost over Ite aIke Is done. There are a nul ti-sr of easier and quite as reliable tests. Wheli the cake begins to shrink away slightly from the sides of the pain. when you can stick in a tootlipick and have it come out clear or when the top crust can be touched with the tip of the lin ger and it springs back lirnuly, leaving no dent, the cake may be taken from the oven. If you find you have put too much flour in a cake, do not thin with milk. but with beaten egg. adding It gradu ally till the batter reaches a proper thickness. Milk would impoverish the taste of the cake; egg enriches It. The proper time to add flavoring to a cake is after the mixture has been thoroughly creamed and just before the flour is added. Spices should be sifted in with the flour. Never leave the whites of eggs to stand after heating them to the re quired point of frothiness. Fold them lightly into the cake mixture, then set It to bake.-Table Talk. Art Even In Sewing en a Button. There is art even in such a prosaic matter as sewing on buttons. The ordinary operator makes a knot in the cotton, passes the needle through the material from the under part and cheerfully accomplishes her task. The stronger the thread the more satislied she will be. But when the garment is dealt with in the wash and ironing time comes round the knot upon which the work had depended forms a hard lump, which cannot possibly resist the heavy and sharp sides of the iron, the latter cuts It off. or certainly impairs its strength, and the wearer is left but tonless. The moral is obvious. Start sewing from the outside or from the inside be fore putting on the button. The latter, being fairly tight, will protect the knot and the smooth thread at the back will not be cut. A Dainty Cake. Cream one-third of a cup of butter. Add gradually half a cup cf sugar, then the well beaten yolks of two eggs, mixed with a second half cup of sugar. and, alternately, half a cup of milk and one cup a'nd three-fourths of flour, sift ed with two and one-half level tea spoonfuls of baking powder. Lastly, add the whites of two eggs, beaten dry. Bake in three layer cake tins of small size and put the layers together with an orange cream filling. Spread the top very lightly with the filling. Into this press orange sections. sprinkling the whole with powdered sugar. For the filling, scald one cup of orange juice with the juice of half a ORANGE CREAM CAKE. lemon and one-third of a cup of sugar. Into this stir two and one-half table spoonfuls of cornstarch. mixed with a second third of a cup of sugar. Stir and cook until the mixture thickens, then cook over hot water about ten minutes. Add a tablespoonful of but ter, a few grains of salt and the yolks of two eggs, beaten very light. Thon add. lastly, the whites of two eg-,. beaten dry. Use when partly cooled.

NEW WAISTS FOR WARM DAYS. erbocker suiting. Linen is so well liked that one finds it in every quality and every degree of shade from the natural flax to the bleached batiste, whichlis so fine that it is a wonder it is ever wo ven. Many beautiful and dressy house frocks are made of pure white linen in such weave as best pleases the wear er. They are trimmed with rather heavy lace in cream and sometimes even in butter color. The linens are shown in all the season's best colors. and they are fast, so that the wearer need not fear to put as much trimunini. I as she will on them. The tints are blue, pink, heliotrope and sulphur yel low. These are all beautiful when trimmed with lace. Lace in small separate figures called medallions is set along the front fold on yokes and among tucks wherever they seem called for. They are very dainty and are used on so many of t!e waists and skirts that it would be un profitable to mention them in detail. A long list of materials especially adapted for waists for summer are shown, and it seems that nearly every thing is mercerized. This means that the fabric has been made frosty and lustrous by some treatment with silica ground to an impalpable powder. It is certainly handsome, but so far as my experience goes will not survive the laundry. So let whoever buys it be careful and keep it out of the water. Everything, even the stiff swiss mus lins, is mercerized. The new silk and linen batistes are exquisite. They show lacy lines and lines where there are swivel woven blossoms in natural colors on a natural grass tint. Silk and cotton woven together make an other very delicate and dainty fabric, for the most part in tints with Pom padour figures. Quite a number of the light materials have a border of embroidery woven along the edge so that It can be utilized as trimming. Some materials are shown with quite wide stripes of op:"n work like lace or embroidery, and be tween them the plain linen. Shirt waists are made of all of thlm'e and many more, but the shirt waists of this season are marked by neater ef fects than they were-that is, they are built more compactly. Few of thetii have that ugly and obstreperous exten sion to go under the belt. These have the finish of a belt, and very nwity waists have a snug lining stiffe'!*d with featherbone, which washes lilk cord. Almost every waist has the lis";p sleeves, with cuffs narrow or deop. ,< suits the wearer best. Many hav- yoke effects and are trimmed as fancy dic tates, but in a close and neat manner. All have high collars more or less orna mental.
