WHEN LIBERALITY COUNTS
, Washington, Aug. 5 When
the senate goes into executive ,)c
session, all is solemn and ue;i- 5
ous. For instance, this story
' ' May I ask what sort of
man the nominee Is?" asked
Senator Penrose of Senator
Stone when Abram Klkug was
ii for confirmation as Turkish
"A liberal, intelligent, genr-
ons.-minded man," said Stone.
"I hope he 'II not forget to
be liberal in the coming cam-
paign," said Penrose.
" 1 'at riot ism should dictate
. his course," replied Stone.
May Stop Personal Press
Agenting by Congressmen (
at Government Expense
Washington, Aug. 5. That dearly
loved institution, "the: leave to print"
under which congressmen annually
send, postage free, to their consti'.u-
ents tons of imaginary speeches they
never made liberally sprinkled with
mythical "laughter" and psychological
applause ' is to lie curtailed if
bill considered favorably today by both
A bi-partisan report from the joint
printing committer urges these facts in
favor of the lull:
A million volumes a year, many
printed on fine paper and bound in
leuther, have to be sold as waste pa
per because no ones takes the trouble
to frank them out.
Janitors ami building superintend
ents complain that whole basements
are literally filled with virtual waste
paper, so 'that the government has to
rent additional space to store coal am)
Private manufacturing firms, acting
in collusion itith senators and members
have had printed ami funnked at pub
lie expense "putts virtual nds
though described as "expositions"
of their plants, factories ami indus
tries. T'ne present rules of both' houses
A member or senator may obtain the
printing of anything as u "public document."-
Sixteen -hundred arc auto

senator or the man lie is aiding inny
have the government printing oifi
strike off us many more as he wishes
at the cost. The senator s frank will

On a "leave to print" in the record

Then they, or any excerpt of tiein,

storm in the senate to prevent Senator
Penrose from having thus printed the

A member may say "Mr. President,
I ask leave to extend my remarkes in
the Record," ami then write at any
length on anything.
The new bill provides for cutting
down of departmental documents, nil
of which are by law required to be
printed now, and provides that senate
and house committees must examine
every document which it is proposed to
print. To prcvoirr, possible suppres
sion of reports which the senate may
wish printed it is provided the houses
may overrule committee action, or in
action. This bill has passed the house at
previous sessions anil the senate in pre
vious sessions, but if both bodies ever
passed it, in the same session, it was
invariably found the two measures
differed slightly, and a compromise
never has been reached.
The aniu.al waste is estimated at
110(1,1100, for printing; that for frank
ing cost to the postal department can
not be measured, but it is said to be
much mora than that.
PREPARING CALF RENNET
TOR MANUFACTURER'S USE.
Scarcity of rennet extract for cheese
making has led to the suggestion that
packers' aud farmers save calves' ren
net stomachs for shipment to rennet
manufacturers, and the following meth
od of preparation is recommended by
the duiry deportment of the O. A. O.
The reniiet stomach, which is the
fourth stomach of the calf, i obtained
from calves only that have lived on no
diet other than milk. It is removed by
cutting where it joins the next stomach,
and (-leaned out by sipiee ing out the
contents. The thick muscular part of
the neck is cut out ami the stomach
split open 'so that it will lie flat. The
tat from the outside should lie peeled
off but the inside of the stomach should
not be washed with water. The rennet
is then stretched v.ellaiid salted heavily
on both sides 'immediately and left
day or two iu a cool dark place away
from the flies, to drain. Plenty of' Suit
should bo on both sides. All rennets
must be drained aud kept cool until
ready for shipment, when they are
packed in tubs or boxes. They spoil
readilv and must be kept cool and suit
ed. When thoroughly dried they will
keep indefinitely, and where only a few
are secured each weeK, it is a good
practice after salting and draining, to
haiic ui in the nir to dry
The price received two months' ago
tor rennet was 1.' to 1.1 cents each, but
it is said that manufacturers no doubt
'nri willing now to pay a few cents
more, due to the great scarcity.

Candidate Hughes Is
Off On Initial Tour
Heads for West Coast
New York, Am?. 5. Republican nom
inee Hughes started his stumping tour
today. Ic will carry him across the
country to the Pacific coast and back
ugain.j with a few days' vacation
sandwiched in between times, at some
spot in Glacier National 1'ark, Mon
tana. Originally Candidate Hughes plan
ned a dignified speaking tour with set
appeals for votes, in only a dozen or
so of the big cities en route to the Pa
cific, coast, lie expects -to remain a
day or so ill each of these largo cit
ies conferring with local leaders. But
the moment he announced a transcon
tinental tour he begun being bombard
ed with appeals from republicans for
speeches in their home towns and to
day it appeared that Hughes would do
a regular "barnstorming" tour rear
platform speeches ami all.
Four years ago Colonel Roosevelt es
tablished a precedent for liveliness in
transcontinental tours and With Hughes
ability as a campaigner his friends
were betting today he would equal if
not better the Rooseveltiau record for
strenuositv in speaking dates.
With the governor travels Mrs.
Hughes. It is a bran new departure
tor the wire of a candidate to be with
him on campaign tours. But Mrs.
Hughes has always been one of her
iiusbuud 8 most trusted advisers and
assistants rh mapping political strate
gy, and besides she wants to sec that
he kept well, so it was decided to have
her along. Governor ai.d Mrs. Hughes,
two secretaries, a messenger, the gov
ernor's personal press agent, Carl D.
Sheppard, formerly a Washington news
paper man, and a messenger will occu
py one private .car on the trip.
Hitched on to this will be another pN
vate car for politicians, local commit
tees, and newspapermen.
On Monday. Governor Hughes will
make the first set campaign speech of
the season at Detroit. Tuesday he w
speak in Chicago,mid then he goes to
