Many Factors Affecting Final
Cost of Loaf Pointed Out in
Experimental Kitchen.,
Where Recipe Calls for Shortening,
Sugar and Compressed Yeast Ex
pense Is Greater —Cheaper Way
of Baking Is Outlined.
(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

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.
Developed as Home Convenience for
Use in Hot, Dry Climates Where
Ice Is Scarce.
The iceless refrigerator was de
veloped _by extension workers a* a
nome convenience for use In hot, dry
climates where it is difficult to secure
ice. A report has been deceived by
the United States Department of Agri
culture showing how the principle of
the Iceless refrigerator has been suc
cessfully applied by a Wyoming wom

Greatest Precaution, Should Be Exer

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
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
