The Woman Makes fee Home
She makes it best who, looking after the
culinary department, turns her back resolute
ly upon unhealthful, or even suspicious, food
accessories. She is economical; she knows
that true economy does not consist in the use
of inferior meat, flour, or baking powder. She
is an earnest advocate of home made, home
baked food, and has proved the truth of the
statements of the experts that the best cook
ing in the world today is done wth Royal
CHE bo called "railway question" h no longer one to be treated
by press and public with indifference on the theory that any
damage to the business is hurtful only to a few rich people.
IT IS A GREAT NATIONAL QUESTION THAT MUST BE
.DISCUSSED FULLY AND WITHOUT PREJUDICE, AND WHEN THE
PRESS AND THE PUBLIC UNDERSTAND THE REAL FACTS IT IS TO
BE HOPED THAT THEY WILL REALIZE THAT THE GENERAL WEL
FARE OF THE WHOLE COUNTRY DEPENDS UPON HAVING SAFE.
COMFORTABLE, REGULAR AND ADEQUATE TRANSPORTATION, AND
TO HAVE IT THE NECESSARY PRICE MUST BE PAID.
The press can do much to correct the impression that railways
are "making" great sums of money, for the statement is not true. The
railways are having a largo volume of business and show gross earn
ings of very large figures, but the public mind is CONFUSED ON
THE SUBJECT OF "GROSS EARNINGS" of the railways and
the "making of money" by the railways.
Too often the impression remains in the mind of the individual
that because a railway has gross earnings of fifty or sixty or seventy
millions of dollars this enormous sum of money has gone to a LIM
ITED NUMBER OF RICH OWNERS of the property. As a
matter of fact, after paying for wages, materials, taxes, rentals and a
very modest return on the fair value of the property there is little or
nothing left for those improvements which must be made day by day
to keep the transportation machine in good order for today's business,
let alone the very large investment that must be made to care for the
GROWING BUSINESS and demands of this country.

Those Fighters Wen Their Qroataat
Fame In tha Crimea.
One of the moat interesting class of
soldiers of modern times has been the
Kronen corps called the souavea. This
body of during and picturesquely at
tired fighters reached tbe heights of
Its reputation during tbe Crimean war.
The souave corps at that time was
supposed to consist of Frenchmen. It
was. however, quite International,
since many during young foreigners
bad Joined It, and It was known to In
clude In Its ranks men from Oxford,
Cottlngen and other universities It Is
probable thut a majority of Its members
were in It more for love of fighting
than for any love of country.
It Is not strange, therefore, that Its
fame a a Hunting body should have
spread throughout the world. When
our war between tbe states broke out
several corps of souaves, wearing the
glittering oriental uniforms of the
French corps or a modi Ilea tioo of them,
were formed on both sides. On tbe
Culon side the best known was that
corps commanded by Elmer Ellsworth,
a young ottirer from New York and
the first killed on the Union side. In
tbe Confederacy tbe most famous corps
of Koiinres was that called the "Lou-
While in American military life the
souave uniform has practically disap
peared. In France the souave name
and uniform still survive. Harper's

There are Immense atonea on every
