FOOD HABITS OF PEOPLE.
AGRICULTURAL DEPARTMENT TO MAKE
SYSTEMATIC STUDY OF
Ir. proportion to general living expenses, such as
clothing, housing, etc.. the price paid for food by
the average American is far in excess of what It
should be. This Is conceded by most persons who
have made a study of food and diet as applied to
the working classes in this country. The topic has
been receiving attention from the Agricultural De
partment at Washington, and during the coming
year It is promised that a still more systematic an.l
thorough attempt will be made to collect reliable
data regarding the food habits of the population
of the United State?.
In the ar.r.uaJ report of the department for UOl
the Secretary. James Wilson, states that la his
opinion the results of nutrition investigations
which have already been made may be applied to
advantage wherever a large number of persons are
to be fed on a systematic plan. When it is con
«!3<rTc-d that In New-York State alone about one
h-urdred thousand persons of the dependent and
delinquent classes are maintained annually, and
that for them IMtMM Is expended for food, some
lefa may be gained of the vast interest at stake
when the entire country is taken into account.
During the coming year the work of the depart
ment will ceal particularly with the application In
public Institutions, of the results of previous nutri
tion investigations, as well as with the dietary
stuiies of farmers sr.d rural and urban workers.
In addition to these subjects, attention will turn to
the iivir.g of residents of the new territories of the
country- Mr. Wilson pays: Mow that the govern
mental, commercial and other interests of our peo
pie are so largely concerned with tropical regions,
the determination of the food habits and require
ments of people living in such regions has become
a matter of much imjortan^e. The continuance of
soldiers, sailers and civil officers of the United
6t«ites la tueh regions would of itself Justify the
institution of ir.vestigatiins to determine the best
cietariPs for their use while there."
Many topics of Interest in the culinary section of
the household are discussed in the report. While

Agriculture in any way to protect the people of

DR. STARRS BOOK OX PROPER DIET CON
TAINS FACTS OF INTEREST.
A ?hird edition, rewritten and enlarged, r.f "Dis
• -c- "f the Digestive Organs In Infancy and Child
b ." by Ivouis Starr. M. D., has lately been
and contains some chapters of practical value to
mothers, although it [a especially adapted to tho
physicians. The proper kir.ds and quantities
to be given to the average child from the
hour of its birth to the age of three and a half
; re given, with minute directions for pr<
Food for the mother is also Indicated, and
useful Information glvt n.
"As a rule." says Dr. Starr, "infants are overfed,
and this opens the interesting question of the
normal capacity of the stomach at different ages.
Botch states that, by actual measurement, the
stomach of an infant five days old holds six and a
quarter fluid drachms, a quantity far short of that
usually forced upon the babe during the first week.
There is a rapid Increase in the capacity of the
stomach during the first two months of life, while
in the third, fourth and fifth months tho increa.so
is Blight! ' ■ • ' .
"Guided by these data, the quantity of food
should be rapidly augmented during the first six
or eight weeks of life, and then heid at the samo
quantity up to the fifth or sixth month. Another
considerable increase is demanded between the
sixth and tenth months."
After the first year the author says that a mere
varied and substantial diet than the milk prepara
tions may be required, and permits the yolk of a
lightly boiled egg, with stale bread crumbs once
a day the other four meals consisting of ml;k.
On alternate days the third meal may be, instead
of the yoik of egff. a teacupful of beef, mutton or
chicken* broth containing a few stale breadcrumbs.
From the fourteenth to the eighteenth month
stale breadcrumbs in new milk, oatmeal or cracked
wheat porridge soda biscuit, broth rice and milk
pudding yolk of egg lightly boiled, thin bread
slightly buttered, and mashed baked potato moist
ened with meat broth may vary the bill of rare.
To this list may be added, after eighteen, months,
a table-spoonful of underdone mutton pounded to a
paste and from that nee to three and a hall years
further addition may be made, of underdone roast
beef or mutton, roast chicken or turkey, plainly
dressed macaroni, bake.) apple, stewed prunes,
milk toast, and well cooked green vegetables spin
ach celery, young onions, cauliflowers and young
peas mashed with a fork. These, it is to be under
stood, are to be given only at the third meal, and
not more than two of the dishes any one day. The
other meals should be restricted to broth, milk,
Docridjce and stale bread, with butter.

A St. Louis minister, in whose ci.nKrepation of
nearly three hundred members there were only
about twelve marriages last year, thinks that the
percentage of those matrimonially Inclined Is too
small and blames women for not proposing mar
r!a»re'th.'mselves. Ir. a published Interview he said:
"Women do not usually let men propose to them
until they are ready, and there Is no reason why
th.-y should not have and exercise the same right
of proposing as men."

XEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, MONDAY. JANUARY 6. IHO2.
THE DUTCH HOUSEWIFE.
HOW SHE MANAGES HER STORE CLOSET
A.ND THE SIX WEEKS' WASH.
Quiet, order and system are the prerogatives of
the Dutch housewife, and these qualities, indeed,
are characteristic of her country. "Hurry up."
"Step lively." are the last words one hears as he
boards the ship at Hobokcn. and 'Go slowly,"
"Take your time," are the first to greet him in
The Holland woman seldom has time for outside
Interests, and for that reason the woman's club
does not thrive on Dutch Foil. She considers that
her first duty is to her home and family.
When "me vrouw" gives her heart) morning
greeting, which is as bracing as a tonic, she ha?
already cut the bread in thin slices and buttered
them for the "ontbyt" (breakfast), and as her fam
ily appears she draws the eggs with a little net
from the water kettle.
No morning newspaper lies before "mynheer's"
place, unless, perchance, he is fortunate enough to
be first on the list of subscribers who have clubbed
together for the purpose. This method insures,
usually, the arrival of the paper some time during
the day, probably by noon, but this delay is miti
gated by the kindly disposed editor, who dates his
Journal on* day ahead. The limited circulation of
a newspaper in Holland necessitates .a higher
charge for it than for one in this country.
After breakfast, if a guest is conversant with the
etiquette of the country, she will assist her hostess
in washing the breakfast dishes. A quaint look-
Ing wooden bow] is used in place of a diahpan, and
the fragile china is dried on pure Dutch linen.
THE DAME AND HER KEY BASKET.
It is a delight to follow the Dutch housewife
about on her morning duties. As the good dam*
Roes, with her key basket on her arm, to the store
closet, Betjle, the cook, follows in her wake, car
rying with her a tray of picturesque looking Jars,
ready to be filled for the day's use. The store
closet is sure to be of white and blue tiles, and to
have shelves around the four sides of the room, all
resplendent with white stone jars, each of which
bean its label of "suiker," "bruln« sulker, " "thee"
and the like. The old fashioned brass scales oc
cupy a table in the centre of the room, and before
filling the cook's utensils the careful housewife
weighs the articles in demand. When asked why
ehe did this, in view of the fact that a certain
amount is sure to fill th« jar, a Holland woman re
plied equivocally. "Because there is a right way
and a wrong way. and I am doing it the right
Possibly it may be the day when the six weeks'
•wash comes home. If so. the next place to be
visited Is the attic, where the baskets have been
hauled by the big wooden arm thai extends from
under th" eaves to raise heavy or clumsy weights
through a window into the house, much as safes
are raised in this country. The linen comes home,
rouph dried and is prepared for the mangle and
the pros? by the housewife herself. After dampen
ing the pieces will, a brush, each one is folded with
the greatest exs ••• ■ and passed to the maids,
two of whom are required to push the great rollers
of the mangle back and forth.
As the pieces come from the mangle mem vrouw

ilar to ai. office letter press The linen remains in
the press for at least ten day.-, when it emerges
with a f.n.sh as soft as silk. The starched pieces
are dampened and folded ready for the "stryfcster"
who is hired to do that work. Tb< manner of

Mrs. C. 1.. Hendrickson. of New-Jersey, writes
her lirst letter of the mw year to the T. S. S. to
thank for her Christmas gift and to express the
hope that all kiiidnesses, shown to others may be

having received fragrant sunshine — lemon blossoms,
citron ie.ives. wax flowers, etc.. from Florida,
which gave her great pleasure. A letter has bet-n

that the fine mittens knitted by a blind memh.-r

HE SATS CHRISTY NITT CAM REMEDY THE ILLS
WHICH THE OTHER SYSTEM AIMS TO CURE.
Archbishop Corrigan. in hi.i sermon at St. Pat
rick's Cathedral yesterday morning, said tna . so
cialism was a dream and that its theories would
be- found full of faults In actual practice. The
point in which he disagreed with the socialistic
teachers most emphatically was that religion had
nothing to do with morals or morality, and that
socialism was able by itself to do away with wrong
doing and crime.
One of the chief arguments to prove the divinity
of Christianity, he said, was that of the ameliora
tion of the characters of Its adherents. He quoted
from the ancient theologians in support of this
contention. To-day, he said, socialism appeared
before the world with most seductive promises of
an earthly paradise. He read from, a Western pub
lication that, under socialism, an Ideal state of
society would exist, perfect In Its adjustment and
Just In Its perfection: no time for Idleness, tut
plenty for pleasure; that all ..-..inner of conven
iences would exist In homes and cities; crime would
be unknown, and every man working eight hours
a day might have three or four months' vacation
Such propaganda, he said, might be influenced
by a sincere desire to help humanity, and the
necessity for help arose from the so-called capital
and labor troubles. .
"As private capital is supposed to be the ex-
Citing cause of the grinding down of the poor
said the Archbishop, "all socialism agrees that all
capital and wealth producing powers shall be
transferred to society collectively: that is. to the
community. Socialism is of as many kinds as are
the countries in which it exists. Like the cha
meleon, it takes different colors when In different
places ' That of this country takes color from the
German: but it is not a very good reproduction, at
that. Hut the underlying principle is the sime.
It denies the right to possess private caaltal. ana
transfers all such and the means to produce wealth
to the public at large.
"Socialism as a system has this radical difficulty:
It promises great results without an adequate
cause. Why should people give all that they pos
sess into the bands of the community? W- could
understand it in the case of a Sister of Charity
or of a man who does it for the E'or> of Ood.
but we may not expect it of .ill people, least of all
from socialists, when they S i»? that religion !* not

"Cannot some other method be found to overcome
the difficulties of the present Urn •? The questions
I refer to are all of recent growth: they have ensue
to be with the spread of Industry, the discoveries
of gold, the French Revolution, and are .ill the
product of .i recent period. Th-.- are not the re

The demand of the hour is that Christianity ex
pand and find the remedy for the evils of the time.
It. and only it. has the key to the solution of the
poverty problem, the social problem, the labor
problem. Only It can make good city government
possible In the highest sense. "Tis only as men
live In the fear of God. live as being In His pres

righteousness and peace shall be established, and
wrong and Injustice be overthrown. "Except the
Lord keep the city, the watchman walketh in vain."
Twentieth century biology says that man is the
creature of his surroundings: twentieth century
Christianity says: "I will save society, renovate
States—to elevate the Individual."
But there Is another side. It Is not true that
man Is simply the product of his environment— thit
his shortcomings, failures, successes can be charge 1
to his surroundings, and himself go scot free. If
the environment makes the man. man also makes
his environment. A man of pure heart and clean
habits will not long dwell amid squalor and dirt.
Soon his surroundings will reflect his own nature.

We must still reach for the Individual soul.
Christianity must expand and take In society but
she must at the same time restrict herself to the
Individual. Let us contend for better laws, better
citizenship, better sanitation, etc: let us Insist that
business corporations conduct their affairs upon
an ethical basis, but let us also insist that in th"
last analysis righteousness lies In the individual
life, and that only as It is there can cities be
"clean." can Industrial conbinatlons be just, and
peace and joy «and love rule in our council cham
bers, sway our parliaments, and guide the destiny
