(Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) Tests In the experimental kitchen of the United States Department of Agri culture show that the quality of tluur used, the retail price paid for it, the method of buying, whether in small quantities or by the barrel, the bread formula used, the kind and price of fuel, the sort of oven used, and the number of loaves made at one time are all factors affecting the final cost of the homemade loaf of bread. Loaf Costs 7 1-3 Cents. In case of a batch of five loaves for which materials were bought In small quantities and which were baked in an uninsulated gas oven when gas cost |1.20 a thousand feet, a single pound loaf was found to cost seven and one third cents. The recipe culled for shortening, sugar, and compressed yeast. Milk was not used in the for mula tested and would have increased the cost of the bread. More Economical Formula. A batch of eight loaves was made by a more economical formula, and all materials, though bought at retail I Use of Milk in Baking Bread Increases Final Cost. prices, were purchased to better ad vantage. "Strong" tiour which gives a high bread yield was selected, and It was bought by the barrel, as the farm woman would be likely to buy It. Dried yeast was used, shortening was omitted, and the baking was done in a kerosene range. Under these condi tions the cost of a one-pound loaf was found to be only four and one-fifth cents. The details arid figures ob tained in these tests are available up on application to the department.

Greatest Precaution, Should Be Exer cleed In Preparing , Balt and in Safeguarding It Afterward, From Humans. (Prepared by the D .p artmenl An efficient remedy for household ants, according to the bureau of en . tomology of the United States Depart ment of Agriculture, Is sirup poisoned with arsenate of soda, if it can be used safely. The greatest precautions should be taken in preparing this sirup and in safeguarding It after wards from human beings or domestic animals. Ants will carry the mixture \ to their nests, so that not only they but the stay-at-homes are reached by the poison. The formula for the preparation of the poisoned sirup is as follows: One pound of sugar dissolved in a quart of water, to which should be added 125 gralqs of arsenate of soda. The mix ture should be boiled apd strained and. on cooling, used on sponges. The ad dition of a •small amount of honey Is said to add to the attractiveness. Tills method of control has been tested by the bureau of entomology for three years and has given very satisfactory results. Persons professionally en gaged In Insect extermination also re port success with It. There are several common species of ants that get Into houses If they find attractive food, as well as the distinct house-inhabiting ants, such us the lit tle red, or Pharaoh’s ant. Some of these are naturally lawn ants and have a colony or nest out-us-doors near the hqpse. The first step, therefore, in the con trol of nuts in the house, Is the re moval of all attractive substances wherever practical. Ants like sweet, .starchy food materials, especially cake, bread, sugar, preserves, sirups, and even meat. By cleaning up promptly all food crumbs scattered by children, keeping all shelves and cor ners clean, and storing food supplies In ant-proof glass or tin containers, or in tightly closed Ice-boxes, the ant nuisance may be largely limited. Daily supplies only of foods likely to < attract ants should be purchased. Entomologists of the department have found that most of the repellents considered effective, such as camphor and naphthalene flakes or powdered mothballs, are of little benefit. If the nest of the ants cun be located by fol lowing the workers back to their point of disappearance, a number of the ants In the nest may sometimes be reached by injecting a little dlsulphid or carbon, kerosene or gasoline into the opening by means of an oil can or small syringe. These substances are inflammable and should never be used near fire. If food and other conditions continue to attract ants and favor their continued breeding Ln the house, such control measures are of only tem porary avail. The collection of ants by the use of attractive baits is frequently recom mended, but unless the bait is pol- , soned, ns previously described. It Is of doubtful benefit. Small sponges moistened with sweetened water will attract many nnts. The sponges can be collected several times a day and the ants swarming on them destroyed by immersion In hot water. The use of sponges moistened with borax and sugar dissolved In boiling water to poison the ants Is also sometimes rec ommended. but has not been found ef fective. The distribution of sweet baits which do not actually kill the ants often results In increasing their numbers. SUGARLESS CANNING ; All fruits may be canned sue- ; cessfully for future use without J the use of sugar, by adding hot * water, or, better still, hot fruit Z juice instead of hot sirups, the J United States Department of * Agricultuure finds. Hot-water s ; products can hardly be expected * to be as good, either in texture * or in flavor, as are those canned * In sirup. But fruits canned in * their own juices are often high- $ ly satisfactory for jelly making, * pie filling, salads and other uses. * particularly if they are very ripe ; and sweet.
