Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta GOVERNMENT AIDS TCi Canada's Parliament Has Set Food. Standards for Pro- tection of the Public. THE DEPT. REPORTS On the Values of "Foods Sold in Canada Issued Free by In- land Revenue Dept. Bv.FHANCIS A; TH.13 housekeeper's work of pro vlding good food for the work Ing and'tlio growing: members of tho filthily is apt-to be looked down upon in these tatter days. But good food la vitally related to Ihe problem o! building up a healthy public opinion. Men and women must eat it they arc to do work; and they do that work better if the food is piire nnd nourishing.- A jaundiced eye does not see things clearly, and a decision in weighty matters' of state may. be swayed by what its maker ate for breakfast ,that morning. As the Canadian Government needs tho co-operation of the house-keep -era invbuildlng up the nation, so it offers .to them a variety of aids in the performance duties. Of course! the consumer must be the ultimate judge of the value of the food: but the State takes measures to see that the consumer shall get she ptvys for, and what the tJwiIer agrees to give her. Take, for example, the common commodity of button There is but- .ter and butter; and in some degree there will probably always be butter and butter. But the variety of tlie article that is sold under that name is nut so Wide now as It once was, and it may conceivably be more strictly lim- in future. At one time In this country, afid still in a number of other lands, oleomargarine might bpj Bold 03 blitter. To -day its sale Is! absolutely- prohibited. Again the amount of water which Is allowed to be left in butter has been carefully limited. The present limit is sixteen .per-cent.; and it is probable that this limit may be reduced. u. law wr.s passed only last session to prohibit the sale of "process" but- ter. This was bia. butter which had ,bccn re-worked and freshened up b> pumping water into it. In some In- stances It had been..found to.contain forty per cent, of water; but, by a flaw in the Act the guilty parties es- jcaped. Of course, nobody wants jKty tfiirty cents a pound for water. i How Standard Was Set BEFORE butter could be defined and its variety limited it w jjiecessary that there should be ilarge number oC chemical testa of 'samples made. Then these tests Avere carefully compared, and from 'them a standard was picked out In a similar way, standards have [Bet for a number of other foods. These include flour, meats, meat ex- tracts, lard, milk, and cream, and Ice cream, inaple products, fresh and fer- mented fruit juices, and olive and other salad oils. It is an of- fence" as-a iris t the law to sell thaso articles unless they come up to tlio standard; and tho Government has inspectors on the watch for violation: of the. law. It is also possible 'for private parties to start prosecutions, but for this purpose it is better to consult with the inspectors. By its laws and by its inspectors the Government seeks to ensure lh.it the public shall yet what ii buys, not Tango and the Hesitation at Brighton Beach Bathers were permitted to disport themselves to their hearts' content at Brighton Beach. Xew York, on Sunday, without Interference from the police who the previous week prevented those on the beach from tango- ng and in; their bdthing costumes. On Sunday there was more dancing' among the young people .nan bathing at Brighton. "Even "those who did bathe hesitated down to the water, and then hesitated further before .entering tho.chilly only in regard to weight, but in re- gard to quality and nourishing pow- er. Fundamental to the protection of the public against false balances Js the inspection of weights and mea- sures by the Inland Revenue Depart-, meiit. Every scale sold must bear the stamp of the 'Government rn- spcctor, and all scales used In .shops are also subject to re-Inspection. The protection as to quality.and nourish- ment cornea through tho food 'stand- into at-the standards. OE "judgmen as to nourishment-is to the light winch is thrown on the suljjecl by chemical analysis and by thft old saying that "One'.man's meat; is an- other man's poison." .But malting al! due allowances far sj'ch things, the food which is up to the "standard.1 Is thereby marked as also being nourishing. A Booklet yVprth Haying A BOOKLET -iviiich is' issued by the Inland. ite venue Deport- ment at gives' the careful housekeeper, many hints as to the'b.est foods to huy.-. This is various foads and beverages pub- lished ever" Uttlo while and made as the result of chemical tests of ar- ticles sent in by the inspectors.-This booklet contains in each case1'Hi name of the maker of the article, the name of the seller, imd-usually, the name, of the wholesaler. Frequently where adulteration is is confined.to one or two makers; or oc- curs more frequently In their goods. By conninK these reports., a house- keeper may learn what not to buy, and also what makes arc up to the standard. These reports' sometimes cover goods on which no- standard has' yet been set, and in such cages they discuss the nutritious :value.of the food. These -reports may be< ob- tained from the department free of charge. TOO MAXY ItETIKAIfSALS. K new play .was !n rehearsal and a delegation of actors approach- ed the .manager.

EFFECT OF COOLNESS Increased'by Putting Away All Heavy Hangings Frozen .Desserts That Will Help. H to keep the house cool !n summer is a problem for the housewife. Keeping the wiu- oijen docs not always mean coolness, because if the air comes from the wrong direction it is prob- ably much hotter than the air ac- tually In the house. 'A good plan in general seems be to air tho house completely in the mornlne before the sun has IP tide incomfortabiy felt. Next close all the blinds on the side of the house which the sun next reaches. .That is, close the house on the eastern side in the morning, leaving the ivestcrn windows open to let in'as much air as possible. Then, an tho sun inavcs further ovt-r, close the western side of the house with shades, and open the eastern which is.now cooler and in the By 5 tho afternoon, or jout that time, depending on the locality, all tho blinds can generally io raised and the entire house given thorough ventilation before the evening mcnl. The general effect of coolness, as has bten often said, will be greatly ncrensbtl by having us few articles simple muslin or thin fabrics at the side of the window alone should be tolerated in rsummcr. The fewer rugs the better. It is wiser and more economical to lay away, good rugs during the summer and substitute lighter grass or similar 'coverings on the floor. Linen !a CooJesl Color T IN15N, a material in linen color, is by la'r. the coolest for couches, etc. The same couch and pillows 'which look hot and uncomfortable, in. red and green, or variegated will ap- pear refreshingly attractive when covered with linen. Bowls of water about the room and flowers or growing also keep the' room cooler, as they give out moisture into tho air. An elec- tric fan is ejtcellent, if rightly used' and placed. Possibly essential is for the housewife herself as an irritated tem- per, nervousness, and i'usslness oil the part of an individual actually seem to make a room hotter and more unpleasant to be in. Keeping cool will be greatly fa- :ilitated by choosing frozen des- serts. Certuiply no summer kitchen s complete without A. freezer of iome a freezer which runs or one of the makes in glass, or other kinds which require merely to be packed with ihe material and placed with salt in the tub. Making Frozen Desserts AK1KG a frozen dessert is not as much trouble as baking a cake or pie, and the housewife who wishes to have her family really re- ircGhcd by summer is com- ing to this point of view. Not all desserts need to be made of eggs and :ream. The following are among the more simple and inexpensive frozen dishes: CURRANT pint of red currant juice to which has been added a few raspberries to give cd- of MJ NO PRIVILEGES FOR WOMEN NOW ..Since She Has Gone Into Busi ness She Is Learning to Take Her Turn.

Time was when practically e woman refused to believe that sh didn't "come no matter wha the situation. If she wanted to bu; theatre tickets or railway tickets she marched up to tho ticket seller'; window and expected to be waitei upon immediately, no matter long a line of other ticket buyer would be waiting. If sue desired, t make a deposit or draw a check a the bank, she blandly approached thi teller's little wicket and expected Im mediate attention, though men migh sho a woman, therefore privileged? Deferred to by a mock chivalry In society, considered first in everything at home, and having been brough up on. literature extolling the su- periority of herself, it has taken thf average woman a long time to real- ize there are no privileges for her in business. Always Autocratic F course thure always will be au- tocratic women, as there autocratic men, who will push them- selves forward regardless of others and, with a show of authority, often get "ahead of those "taking their turn." I saw one surl woman pompously strut up to a bo: office window recently.' A long liir of people waited to buy seats for the matinee, but she scorned to be one o. the common crowd. "Two eeata in the orchestra." she demanded. The ticket-seller paid no attention "I said: 'Two seats in the orches- repeated the pompous person. The box-office man was deaf. Sladame'a face grew purple. She attempted to press for- ward and push a bank bill through the -window. The box-office man saw. nothing. And then a polite policeman in the loliby touched ma.- dame on tbe arm. "Step in line, he said. Madame stared at him with utmost )iitempt "The very she ex- claimed, "Don't touch me. Ij' shall not stand in line." Always Somebody V SHE didn't stand in line, but she stood there fully fifteen minutes and then left, fuming that she would "nevah step inside of that place again, where they didn't know how to treat a lady." And oh, how the men grinned! said- tho box-office man, 'there's hardly a day but somebody thinks he or she is too important to wait in line. Most folks are pretty well educated now, but some can't ge tho idea of their own superiority out their heads. Some men are iretty had, but the all jy any to think It o sort of disgrace to stand In line." "Women are- more willing to stand n lino than they said a busy bank teller, "though some of our old- er customers absolutely refuse to watt a minute for anybody. too, the men will step back and let a woman ahead, unless they are real- ly in a great hurry. "There's just one moro thing wo- men need to and the bank teller smiled; "that Is to attend to business and not stop to talk. We have to be polite to them, you know, but when I see some of the conversa- tional ones waiting in line, it makes me want to dodge." A.

THIS WOMAN HAS A E Brown Identifies and Pieces Together Burnt U. S. Treasury Notes. THREE-FIFTHS OF BILL Necessary Before Money le Re- She Goes About Her Work. A5IODEST, unassuming little woman, with' a plain name and a reserved manner, but doing important work, is Mrs.-A.-J3. Brown, of the redemption division of the United States .Treasury. She .Iden- tifies tile ashes of'burnt money .that come to her from innumerable sources all over America, and re- stores to their unfortunate Jin original value which she finds that these remains represent. "T come very close to she said an interviewer, "and see much that is Interesting pathetic. When people lose their money by "ire, cither through accident .or care- they sometimes do the uost unaccountable then lave it returned to them as good as iew, It is perhaps natural that they should pour out their thanks to mo n the most ecstatic terms, as though personally were the cause of their good fortune.

When a piece of money is burned, even though It la old and worn, this distinct impres- sion continues to show, and the trac- ery and lines are evident in even, the smallest: pieces. "So I take these remaina and search for evidence of any impres- sipn that will tell or even hint at tho denomination or the bill to which they originally belonged. I am so familiar with all kinds of bank notes, gold certificates, silver certificates, I can usually identify the pieces at a glance. "If, in the scryn, with whicfc I am working, I see a few letters of face printing of a twenty-dollar cer- tificate, I lay this fragment aside and mark it. Then I scratch among thd other pieces for more of tho sama kind until I complete at least threp- fi.tths of this bill or what represents this much of it. Then the owner is entitled to its full face value. "This is what I have to do with alt of the fragments sent to them tocether until I find a place for. them. Every piece must receive sideration. It means close application on my part, but I am Interested in It.- Each letter and package contains a surprize purple In its scraps." Mrs. Brown's desk is piled nigh with boxes which contain tho re-1 mains of burnt bills. To be given notice by the Government they must be accompanied by a sworn affidavit- of tlie good character of the sender.} This precaution iiisures the ment in the transaction. !J The Balance of Fashion---A Study in ;
