A Dangerous Precedent to Be Set Congress Passes a Pending Bill. A bill has imssed the Senate intend ed to devote 8000 acres of Yellowstone park to reservoir purposes. It is pend ing in the House. Should it become law, a precedent will be established which may open the way for contin tied encroachments by private inter ests upon our great national park sys tern. Irrigation is the object of the Yl lowxtone sehemp. A Montana promo tion enterprise is engaged in propngan da for the right to build a dam across the lower end of Yellowstone lake This project will turn up in Congress no doubt, backed bv powerful inter ests if the pending one goes through. t.'nder the new water-power act, the commission which it creates is enipow ered to grant concessions for water power sites in the national parks. The immediate dnnger that threat ens lenowstone is a danger involving all the parks. It must be vigorously touglit if it is to be averted. Advocates of the scheme which the Senate has approved make the claim that the area in which the concessions are sought is one of uglv swamp lands- It is not as easily accessible as other parts of the park, and so is less known to the tourist public; but the Nation al Association of Audubon Societies takes sharp issue with the reservoir promoters as to its character. It de clares the involved area is one of the most beautiful in Yellowstone, with not less than forty waterfalls and hot springs. The national parks are peculiarly the property and the pride of the pco pie of America. Across their fron tiers commercialism should not lie per mitted to set foot under any pretext. Give it an inch and it will take miles. Congress declared in 1!)1S "the national parks must be maintained in absolute ly unimpaired form, for the use of fu ture generations as well as those of our own time." John Barton Payne, secretary of the interior, interprets the policy of Con gress, thus declared, as meaning that the parks must be kept "forever free from any form of commercialism. But Congress may interpret itself oth i erwise, and the likelihood that it will is too great to be ignored. The friend" of the national park system should be on the alert against this menace. Write your congressman and full him to keep the hands of the commercial exploiter ofT the parks of the people. Chicago Evening Sun. Catty.

That is a fact recognized by j authorities on the subject. Of course, for everything of the sort the "first requisite is to keep the con tainer clean and well aired, so that mould will not collect. In damp, warm weather this is especially important. Last August, for instance, was a diffi cult time in many parts of the country to keep the bread box in good order,! for there was hardly a day for several I weeks when there was not rain, and at j the same time the air was warm. Mug giness of this sort produces mould on bread and cske very quickly. The best thing to do in such a case, savs the Boston Herald, is to scald the container three time a week, and dry it thoroughly, in the oven, if necessary. In bright weather the sunshine is the agent. It is also a safeguard to reheat ! the next day after baking, although us- bread and cake if there is danger of iually such a cake is not frosted at all. mould. This reheating dries it out Sugar cookies, which are of a erum somewhat, but it does kill the mould. ;bly nature, should be placed while hot The first requisite in keeping baked j in an earthem jar in which a linen things well is to cool them properly. You can cool bread and cake on a wire tray, which is an admirable thing, or you can coo) them on a clean cloth, folded so that several thicknesses are used. The best container for bread and cake is a tin box. This box is made so that it is easily kept clean, and it is made with a tight-fitting cover but with tiny ventilation holes in its sides so that there is a current of air con stantly in the box. This, of course, helps to reduce the danger of mould and mildew. Some housewives keep a couple of linen tea towels purposely for laying m the break and cake boxes. I hey should be washed frequently, of course. These ore wrapped around the bread or folded carefully over the cakes. Remember that a frosted cake keeps longer than an unfrowted one keeps fresh longer, that true. The frosting keeps the cake from drying out. This is a good thing to remember, too that sometimes a thick, soft frosting put on a cake that was unfrostcd to Itegin with freshens it, or at least seems to. Fruit cake should be cooled before it is taken from the pan, and so should similar rich cakes containing much fruit or nuts, like Dundee cake. The soggineos that results is an additional attraction in such a cake. And this Our Big araary Clearance Sal Continues Al!
