Every Woman Her Own Baker
Chicago bakers have decided upon

notice a difference in the size or weight
of the loaf of baker's bread ns yet,
fakes, rolls, biscuit and other small
articles that have not advanced in price,
are much smaller in size than they
Everyone knows the reason. Wheat
Is up, flour is high and the ultimate
consumers are the ones who must pay.
It would seem that if we must send
flour abroad that this would bo a good
time to send some of our excellent cer
eral flours. This would serve two pur
poses; it would save our wheat flour
for our own use, and it would also
introduce corn meal, Graham meal, rye
and buckwheat flours to other coun
tries. Many readers of this column
will remember that in 1893 a corn
kitchen was opened in Paris, and there
corn was prepared in every possible
form with the idea of making this
splendid cereal popular abroad.
In some way the report was circu
lated that the better class of Americans
did not relish or use corn meal or corn
products, but relegated it to servants'
tables. Tliis erroneous report killed
every possibility of introducing our
cereal dishes into Europe by means of
corn kitchens. Now we have an op
portunity to send corn meal to Belgium
in the place of wheat flour, and to use
it and other cereal meals on our own
Wheat flour bread is well called the
etaff of life, but it is not so strong a
staff as flour that is less fine. All of
the wheaten bread is at once absorbed
by the system but rye, brown, Gra- I

She was laughing at him. It could
not be otherwise. It made him at
once sad and angry. "Romance! I

wonder grew. The diction was ex
