BY QUINTON JAMES Orphans of Spain benefit directly from a semi-postal issue of bi- colored stamps just in appearance from that country. The stamps are inscribed, a? roughly translated, "School home for orphans." Part of the money received from the sale of the stamps is to go to aid of the orphans. For the basic illustration a couple of curly-head youngsters arc shown engrossed in play. One has a ball and the other a small sailing ship. The drawing is flanked on either side by a decorative border of color contrasting to the central part of the stamp. • There are seven denominations, beginning with five centavos and extending to five pesetas. Philippines To Appear A complete series of 14 Philippine stamps has been made ready to replace the current issue. All of the designs are of Philippine subjects except the 5-peso which will bear a portrait of George Washington seated on a white charger. The other values will consist of: two-centavo, Jose Rlzal; 4-centavo. Filipino woman symbolic of agriculture; 6-centaVo, Filipino girl; 8- oentavo, pearl fishing; 10-centavo, Ft.

New Meter Stamp A new design for U. S. meter stamps has been noted making its way 'into the mails. One of the first .to come to hand originated from Schenectady, N. Y. A meter stamp Is impressed on an envelope by. ft special machine, each of which has Its own number, and serves not only as the Indication that the regular rate has been paid but as the cancellation mark as well. The new die bears an eagle in flight in the center, above, which is "tj. B. Postage" and below, the town of origin. To the left Is the meter number and date, while to the right is "Amount paid" and, in large figures below, the value. All of this is enclosed in a border resembling the perforations on an adhesive. In the old designs, the amount paid, etc., was in addition to a cancellation mark similar to that employed on mail bearing regular stamps. Greece And Health The three special stamps of Greece designed as a Christmas health issue were printed in two colors. They were on sale the two weeks nearest Christmas, part of the proceeds to go to aid of consumptive clerks and officials of the state. The stamps bear a drawing of a woman seated at a table and sharing her food with a large snake. It has been described as an allegorical figure of health. The adhesives were obligatory on all inland mail for two weeks, coming in 10, 20 and 50 leptas, A Note Or Two The Union of South Africa has decided to issue a special commemorative stamp in connection with Kinfe George's silver jubilee in May.

KNOWING WHAT FOOD IS MADE OF IS A HELP TO COOK It may be true, as some people say, that good cooks are born, not made. But the born cook will be the first to acknowledge that there Is much she can learn about her art. The science of it, for instance, if she has not had a college course in chemistry and physics. Why do we cook food at all? What happens when we boil a potato? Why do we do one thing to starchy foods like oatmeal, flour or potatoes, and something else to meats? What causes the trouble when fats get too hot, and why? .One of the principal reasons why we cook So many of our foods. is that we like the cooked foods better. Few of us care to eat raw meat or raw potatoes or plain lard or suet. They are not palatable until cooking changes the flavor and the texture to suit our taste. It is true that In nutritive value, nothing is added by cooking and usually something is lost. Some foods, however, are made more digestible by cooking, and certain dangerous bacteria or parasites that may be present are destroyed by heat. The Why of Cookery. In fact, primitive cooking marked a step in man's civilization, and scientific cooking goes several steps farther. To the talents of the born cook, who gets good results by means of her imagination, experience and .'kill, science adds knowledge of what foods are made of, and why the results of cooking are what they are. In other words, says the Bureau of Home Economics of the U. S. department of agriculture, when It comes to cooking the contents of your market basket, or the products of your farm or garden, you treat them according to what they are chiefly made of. The substances that are found in largest quantity in the composition of most foods are either carbohydrates or proteins or fats. So one set of cooking principles applies to the "carbohydrates foods," another set to the "protein foods," and still another to- the fats. Let's see what this means so far as the carbohydrate foods are concerned, particularly the starchy ones. To the chemist carbohydrates are compounds of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen and there are many of them throughout the vegetable kingdom. But in cookery the carbohydrates of most concern are starch; sugar, and the plant-structure material called cellulose. Cereals and potatoes are composed largely of starch. , Candy is cliefly sugar. .All the,plant foods —.vegetables or fruits—have a structure of cellulose, whether they are rpots, stalks, leaves, fruit, or seeds. In cookery, therefore all the vegetables and fruits are treated as "carbohydrate foods." Cooking for Taste. Most of the starchy foods are tasteless until cooked. It takes heat to develop their flavor, so you cook oatmeali for example, or whole wheat, or rice or barley or com meal or flour, or potatoes. You cook them either with moist heat, which is to say in water or steam, or with dry heat, as when you bake them. Oatmeal or any of the coarser- grained cereal products are easy to cook because you need only to add them gradually to boiling water and let the bubbling- of the water keep the grains apart, with occasional stirring, to prevent the lumps from forming. But when you are making gravy or white sauce or pudding, with flour or corn-starch thickening, you have to use a* different method. Flour and corn-starch are ground so fine that if they are put directly into hot liquid the outside grains, as they strike the liquid, cook and form lumps enclosing raw starch inside. To avoid the lumps, you separate the starcr) grains first by mixing them with cpld water, or else with fat, or for some purposes with, sugar. When you. add this mixture to thje hot liquid, the starch grains cook separately before they can form lumps. Stir until the hot mixture boils and continue cooking Until the raw starch tasfe is gone— then you have a smooth gravy, or sauce, or pudding as the case may be. That is one of the fundament- als'of starch cookery. When you make a lemon pie, you encounter another principle. The filling is a mixture of sugar, water, eggs and a little fat, thickened with Wrn-starch, and flavored with lemon juice. But acid thins a mixture .that is thickened with starch, because it turns the starch into something else—into "dextrins," which •are substances that do not thicken. 'This Is one reason why you cqok the •starch-thickening, filling for lemon pie before you add the lemon juice. When" you bake a starchy food the "dextrins" come into the picture again. Moist heat causes starch to swell, but dry heat—browning- turns starch into dextrins, just as acids dp. The browned surface of a loaf of bread or of a piece of toast is "dextririized." So is th(e flour you brown to make'brown gravy. It is for this reason that brown gravy does not thicken readily, and you use more browned flour than white to make a gravy. — -. — «a» : Mr: and Mrs. W. C.

INDUSTRIAL DECENTRALIZATION TO CURB RELIEF BILL IS URGED WASHINGTON, Feb. 4 (fl 5 )—Criticizing government relief methods as threatening to demoralize "stranded" populations, business leaders put forward today a plan to provide such people jobs by moving certain industries from city to country. The commerce department's business and advisory council—designated by the Roosevelt administration as the speaking tube through which industry conveys its ideas to the new deal—urged a new government agency with a revolving fund of $2,500,000 to lend to industries "that con operate more advantageously in rural districts than in crowded metropolitan centers." Such loans might, it was suggested, cover the cost of moving. Additional loans "not to exceed the actual payroll" of the concerns might be made for a limited number of months. The decentralization of certain Industries hab long appealed to several prominent business leaders, Henry I, Harriman, president of the chamber of commerce of the United States, advocated it some time ago. The report of the advisory and planning council, which is composed of 52 business leaders headed by H. P. Kendall of Boston, is expected to lead to renewed discussion of the idea. Secretary Roper, who made the report public, did not- say what action he would take. His announcement said, however, that he did not believe recentralization should be carried so far as to harm property owners and business-conditions in cities. He tended toward the Idea of building branch plants in rural communities rather than moving the main plants.
