The dust bins of London aro mute witnesses to the wicked and shameless waste that goes on in our kitchens. Sometimes as I pass along the street and look at them in the early morning I wonder that an angry God does not visit us with pestilenco as a punishment for exhibition* of mouldy oread, sour po tatoes, ends of meat and fish in these recptacles. Two persons - one oi them doing the cooking in a tasteful, economic manner, can have the daiu tiest, most delicious and nourishing food in great variety on 10/ a week in London, even with the present high prices.
