Meals on Co- Operative Plan.
Mrs. Bertha L. Grimm, of Mansfield. Ohio. is. so
far as knovrn. the only woman who has solved
the problem of co-operative housekeeping in a way

to her customers. She does this by serving hot
meals to families who live in their own houses.
but pay her weekly board as if they boarded in her
house. She is enabled to do this by an invention
which will keep a meal perfectly hot and fresh for
caany hoars, with r.o "kept warm" taste.
Mrs. Orimrn bepan in December. ISOI, with five
families, vd.o boarded with her by the week. The
business was a new one to her. and she did not
wish it to grov.- rapidly, so she made no efforts to
advertise it.

members, which opened May 1. Golfers are hungry

NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. SUNDAY. AUGUST 14, 1904.
with me, with Ice cream and cake on Sunday. But
course dinners or luncheons, elaborate or simple,
can be served by this method. ouapio.
This is a business well adapted for women, and
a blessing with those left with children to support,
as they can keep their families together and make
a good living, utilizing the help of their children.
Also, if taken up on the co-operative plan by
twelve families having one central kitchen, they
would find that with one person at the head, two
Helpers and a boy to deliver, they could have home-
F\ a .r° " read and home cooked meals, homemade
Jellies, preserves and everything else, at less cost
than they could have them at home. There is a
waste In the individual kitchens, in the individual
tires and buying, the individual servants, that Is
saved m the central kitchens. A person can cook
for twelve families about as easily as for one. If
she understands her business and has the facili
ties.
"I feel sure the time is near when there will
be a central kitchen in every city. It will .be a
necessity for the happiness of the American home.
The domestic service problem grows more and
more difficult to handle every year. Nine-tenths
of all the women who keep servants keep only
one. It is to this class, the great middle class of
Americans, that the central kitchen would appeal.
It is almost impossible to get a general servant
who is a good cook. This Is not strange. Sweeping
and scrubbing, washing dishes, tending the furnace
carrying coal— all this is comparatively unskilled
labor. It can be learned and done by the raw im
migrant girls whom tho American house has
to take into her kitchen. But cooking is a highly
skilled trade, and one of the most Important in
the world. The health of the nation depends on it.
A woman who has the brains to make a good cock
will not be a general servant. She will not work
for what the average housewife who keep? cne
servant Is able to pay. She will not bo a servant
at all, unless in a wealthy family, or in some big
hotel.
"You cannot get a woman of education and re
finement to enter domestic service of any descrip
tion, because of the loss of social position which it
involves. It Is not tho cooking they object to. it is
the stigma. I have Been women of high attain
ments teaching cooking schools. Hut they would
not enter a family to cons: at ten times the nalary.
Bat such women could be minagers of central
kitchens, If they had the capital to start and the
bead to organize them. They would retain their so
cial position then, as they do now. They vould
not be 'hired girls,' but managers of a business.
There would be no such trouble to get help in a
central kitchen as there is in a house. Th» nelpers
would live at home and come and leave at regular
hours, like girls in any other employment. There
is no trouble in getting waitresses in restaurants.
It Is the loneliness of domestic service, the separa
tion from their own people, the absence of Individ
ual time that they can call their own. and the
everlasting social stigma, that keep smart girls
out of domestic pervlce. Domestic service has pot
to be reorganized, and conducted on the same
basis as any other. Then there will be Just as
many girls waiting to go Into It as there are into
the stores and factories. And, eventually, as more
and more scientific study Is put into cooking and
food values, women who now go into offices and
schools will turn their attention to the business of
food supply.
"The difficulties of getting cooking done have
made the Increase In boarding house life. But the
boarding house does not fill the want, no matter
how Kood it is.
"It Is rot home, and It Is no place to bring up
children. All right minded married couples want
their own home, no matter how modest. The
trouble In this home Is not the washing. That
can be admirably done outside. It is not the
care of the house. With the help of a scrub
woman one day in the week, almost any woman
who now keeps one servant could do that for
herself. Or the present raw, untrained servant
will do well enough for that under the mistress's
direction. It is tho cooking, and particularly the
dinner. Breakfast Is a simple meal. So Is
luncheon, with the man of the house generally
lunching downtown. It is the dinner that bothers'.
Secure of a woll cooked, promptly delivered
dinner every day. many a housewife who is now
at her wits' ends to run her house with incom
petent help could get along without any j help
at all.
"Living at restaurants does not fill the bill at
all. It is too expensive in the first place. I am
talking of people of moderate means, not of rich
people, who don't need any help. If you live
at restaurants you have got to pay your own
rent, and you have go', to pay your proportion of
the restaurant man's rent besides, as well as the
service and everything else that goes to keep
op the restaurant. Then, while first class cafes
am fine, they cost abominably, and poor res
taurants are terrible. The meats all taste alike.
You wonder If they are all cooked in the same
pan. You wonder what the kitchen looks like-.
The surroundings ate unpleasant, the cooking Is
bad, And while in largo cities one can usually
•JUcover seme piace> where he or sh« can eat In
comfort. In small cttr«s. and especially In villages,
where almost every one lives In his own home,
there Is a little choice in eating places.
"The central kitchen, with actual home cooking.
is the only thing to fill tho want. I would like
to *cc th« women of the country systematize
their housework, as men have systematized their
business. Our present methods of housekeeping
are th* some as If every farmer hauled his own
crop to market, instead of shipping it by the rail
roads. Yet there is a psychological reason under
It. Every family wants Its own home. and so far
no way has t*-»>n found to have It, except by
doing tbe cooking in th» bouse or "going out to
moals." which isn't the same thing at .'.H. There
is « psychological effect *nln«d by the family
crUhered nrcund its own family table, which Is
lost in boarding house or restaurant eating."

Hotel Champlain. K. 1 , Aug. 13 (Speclal).-A j
series of interesting golf matches has held the at
tention Of lovers of the sport this week. The most
important of them was the match between a plc*M
team of the Stevens House Golf Club from Lake
Placid and a team of the Hotel Champlain Golf j
Club, played over the tatter's course.
Perfect weather favored the players ar.d a large
party of visitors came down from Lake Placid to
witness the game. Th« contest was a close one
throughout, and the Stevens team was 4 up until
W. D. Moftatt, of the Champ'aln team, turned in
bis card showing that he had his opponent 9 down,
thus turning the score In favor of the Hotel Cham- j
plata team, placing them 5 up.
Clock golf is popular with the children here, two
tournaments having been played this week on the
turf in front of the hotel.
Miss Mary Lelsenrlng offered prizes for the first
tournament, and twenty youthful competitors en- ;
tered the lists. The first prize was won by Master !
Harold Danzlnger, of New-Orleans, and the second |
prize by Master Everett Cooke. of Patenon. N. J.
After tho game the players were entertained In the \
grotto by Miss Lclsenring.
William Runkle. of Plainfleld. N. J.. gave a clock
golf party on Tuesday to the children and offered
several prizes. A large "galltry" seated about the ■
circle watched the contest and presented a pretty
picture on the lawn.
Miss Mary Leisenrlng won the girls' first prize. .
Miss Elizabeth Grlges won second prize. Master I
Newcomb Baker, a youngster in kilts, aged seven,
raptured the boys' first prizo and Master E. J.
Gorman won the second prize.
On Tuesday. August 16. the Squirrel Club is to
hold a saio of fancy ai tides In the sun parlor of
the Hotel Champlain for the benefit of the Home
for Friendless Children in Plattsburg. This squir
rel club is an organisation of young children who
spend many hours in a cedar bower where the
little chipmunks play about fearlessly and eat nuts
and goodie, from the hands of their youthful pro
tectors. Feeding the squirrels is their pastime, but
they also give heed to the hungry and homeless
little souls of earth. Last year their sale netteO
nearly $300 for that object, and this year they hope
to do as well. The offlcors of the club are: Presi
dent. Mary Leisenring; vice-president, Elisabeth
Grlggs; treasurer, Kathryn M. Booth; secretary,
Everett Cooke; housekeeper, Janet Griggs; chief
squirrel feeder, Martha Reynolds.
A. Lichtenheln. of New-York, added considerable
Interest to the regular weekly handicap of the
Hotel Champlain Golf Club by offering three prlres
for the best gross scores in addition to those put
up by the club. The LJciitenhein prizes were. won
by W. D. Klrker, 81: C E. Johnson, 84, and William
Runkle. 9«. Th<j club trophy cups were won by W.
D. Moffatt, net score 80. Second prize was tied at 79

Hallowell and Robert Goodbody. In tho play-off
Klrker and Goodbody tied again at 81. This last tie
has not yet been played off.
Much attention is paid to the floral display made
here. Every morning the head guardener and hla
assistants cut the day's supply of flowers for the
vasts la the hotel parlors and corridors. Bouquets
are alao sent to the rooms of tho women patrons
of the hotel. Wild ferns from the adjacent woods
dROBe«,d R08e«, sw r eet ÜB peas and the flowers for the dining
room tables are cut In the evening and placed in the
refrigerator overnight. In the morning bouquets
are arranged for every one of the seventy-five

Especially for Women.
The Murray Grove Association of the Unlversallst
Church, which holds a series of meetings annually
nt Good Luck. M. J.. set apart this yeear for the
first time a day for women, and invited them to
tell all about their work and discuss their particu

versallst Church, accordingly, determined to make
Woman's Day a memorable one.
Dame Nature herself smiled upon their cause
and blessed them with clear and delightful
weather.. Tbe locality, too, was a continual in
spiration, for near this spot was the birthplace of
the Universalist Church in America. When, l.i
1770, John Murray was cast ashore in a storm on
Barnegat Bay, he met Thomas Potter, who in
duced him to preach In a church which he had
built in readiness for the prophet whose corning
he had confidently expected. This was 'he flrst

an auxiliary to the Red Cross Society, and was
founded by an Imperial princess, has a princess for
its president and a marchioness for its director,
and titled women In every large city working on
its committees. A member may choose any divis

that is granted her. Two days a week in the band
