H THE WOMAN ARCHITECT.
IT IS a curious thing, when all is
considered, that so few women
h take up the high following of
B architecture. It is an occupation
H which callB for no such amount of
B labor as a normal woman could not
H perform, and one in which the expert-
H ence and the peculiar taste of women
H would be valuable. All housekeeping
H women know the disadvantages of liv-
HL ing in houses designed, constructed,
H and provided with accessories accord-
B ing to the ideas of men. They know
H also the ill concealed irritation of the
H architect whose preconceived ideas are
B , opposed to those of his practical
H femine client.
H ' Take, for example, the mere ques-
H tion of gas jets or electric lights de-
H pending from the ceiling. In seventy-
H Ave cases out of a hundred the height
BH has been decided upon by men and
H are too high for the woman of aver-
H age height to reach. Or take the
H matter of kitchen sinks. Men have
H i decided upon a certain height for
P51 them, and only hysteric importunities
BMB can induce them to raise them so that

they will not give the women working
at them a pain in the side. Women
are worn out taking unnecessary steps
about the house because rooms do not
bear the right relation to each other.
The closets are not numerous nor
commodious enough to enable the
housekeeper to preserve order. The
pantry shelves are too high, there is
too muoh distance between them; and
there is not the right provision made
Windows are unnecessarily high,
floors are not prepared in such a man
ner as to retain their good appearance;
proper room is not povided for beds;
the small drawing rooms of bunga
lows and apartment houses are so
broken up with needlessly wide doors,
with consoles and windows, that there
la no place for living In them or, at
least, of giving them the appearance
of anything more than an antechamber.
Wall space is necessary to comfort.
It is the settle, the book shelves, the
piano, the pictures on the wall, the
open Are, and the reading table with
Its good lamp that make a comfort
able living1 room. Yawning door spaoe,
gaping windows, rattling consolas, and
a pest of draperies never will do it.
Women who understand home-making
know that. What they wish for Is not
an architect's effect but a chance to
make each member of he family com
fortable. And they know how to do
it, but they are forced to take up with
man-made roms, which have a certain
effect, but which are lacking in real
Now, a woman architect would un
derstand what women wanted. She
would realize that home is a woman's
world. That her ingenuity, her tal
ent, her physical strength are put to
the test there, and she would or, at
least, it may be assumed that she
would be patient with feminino ideas
and would learn to adapt herself to
them, and, in turn, to adapt them to
the demands of consistent and artislc
architecure. It is quite conceivable
that women architects of ability would
find themselves much in the favor of
their house building sisters.
DURING the week Ike Rus3ell came
home, breezing Into the city that
is proud to claim him from
the activities of the Wilson campaign.
For Ike Is as much a part of the Wil
son household as he is a member of
the staff of the New York Times by
which paper he is employed. Since
early In the summer he has camped
on Woodrow's trail and as the cham
paign went on ho accompanied him
into the W63t, leaving him in Ne
braska long enough to skip back to
Zion for a brief visit with relatives
Ike Russell has been away three or
four years. Ho was all that was re
quired of a reporter in Salt Lake, and
the requirements are not great. Be
fore he got into the rut he slipped
into New York and went to work on
the Times as an observer who chroni
cles what he observes. Now and then
you find Ike's name flaring like a gon
falon at the head of an article In
'Collier's and you can't mlstakw the
ring of his stuff.
It is a big thing for a western youth
to jump into tho New York newspaper
gait and rise in a year or so to the
point where the "big stories" are
turned over to him.
But the experience stamped in I've- '
made-good-on-Broadway expression all
over the face of Ike Russell.
His Is a big future.
Some folks save all they waste by
feeding the waste to the chickens;
others waste all they save by the
garbage can route.

all the rest of the candidates for con

jealous of the record Jacob Johnson
has made in the way of getting him

body has raked up an old story to tho
