Bill was the. thirty-first patient at the

No. ?25 I-afayette street by Mrs. James
Speyer, prci-ident of the woman's auxiliary
o r thp American Society for the Prevention

Social Leader Hits on New and
Paying Industry.
At No. V) Irving Place. New York, there
is just now an exhibition which ought to
light those who have rich and curious
colorings— an exhibition of scarfs, draperies,
etc.. dyed at Neighborhood House, In
Washington. The collection has a history,
too. show ing how this social settlement hit
upon a new and paying industry, and al
most by chance.
One of the women most interested in
Neighborhood House is Mrs. Albert Clif
ford Barney, who lives, in Sheridan Circle,
in "Washington, and from time to time Mrs.
Barney has arranged plays for the benefit
of the settlement -plays in which she in
duces the socially elect of "Washington to
act, and which the socially elect turn out
In force to see, at grand opera prices. The
latest of these performances was a panto
mime. "The Man in the Moon," and when
II was given— it was at the Belasco, the
Monday before Christmas— every one was
enthusiastic about the costumes. The cos
tumes had been designed, dyed and fash
ioned at Neighborhood House, and the
wonderful colorings inspired all who saw
them with a desire to possess something
dyed at the same place.
For a good while, more or less dyeing
had bern done at Neighborhood House. At
first it was only raffia for the basketry,
whirh has been one of the settlement's
specialties. Then one thing after another
was dipped into the vats, and before long

caU it. had become one of the chief inter
ests ere.
Dyeing the costumes for "The Man in the
Moon" was a difficult undertaking, be
cause artificial light changes colors so. Mr.
Neligh decided %o do the work at night, and
in this way succeeded in turning out pretty
nearly what he and Mrs. Barney wanted.
Some of the colors were Jiideous by day.

needed. Probably few 'in the audience
could have believed, had they been told,
that most of the material in the costumes

Framed —^nothing, in reality, but dyed

the stage dressed to represent autumn

and yellow eplashes, no two alike. But
the most artistic piece was the gown worn

ftcce then the play scarfs and other things
dyed at Neighborhood House have been in
great demand. The settlement has turned

beautiful; others merely bizarre.
"It all depends on the mordant," Mr. Ne-
Jigh save. "The mordant, you see. Is the
chemical which at once fixe- and changes
the color. The effect of a given mordant
varies according to its strength and other
conditions, and I never know just what color

At this clinic, whicli is perfectly free, the
dogs and cats have their own special phy
sician. Dr. ]•:. R. Blarney, who is there
from 10 o'clock till 12 In the morning and
from 3 till 5:30 in th* afternoon, and "as
many hours as I can epare from my private
practice in between." be says. Dr. .T. IT.
Foster, veterinarian, comes to prescribe
for horses from noon to 1 o'clock. one of
the reasons Dr. Blarney gives, for •having
taken the diseases of dogs and cats for his
lifo work is a characteristic one.
"You know." he said. "in England, which
Is my country, physicians to human beings
wear frock coats and top hats. I hate that
sort of ceremony, and so when I was
studying medicine I decided to be a cat
and dog doctor. And besides. I love cats
and dogs and all small animals. Their dis
eases, too. are intensely interesting."
The patient that followed Bill, the watch
dog, was a much sadder case. It was a
little fox terrier, led by a little, wrinkled
old man. The tiny creature was shaking
with chill and pain, but lifted up Its head
icspor.sively when its master caressed it.
It didn't take Dr. Blarney long to dis
cover that Nellie— that was the little dog's
name — couldn't be cured.
"Pneumonia," he said. "You'd better let
us send her to the society, where she wiU
be painlessly destroyed. Of course, I can
give you medicine, and you can tak* her
home, but she's too far gone to get well; it
will only prolong her suffering,"
"I haf her long times: I vill miss her."
muttered the old man. But he acquiesced
and went away, while JameS, the assistant,
put Nellie into a basket gently.
When the doctor came out of thp consult
ing room a row of children awaited him.
One held a little mongrel dog, both of
whose hind legs were broken and dragged,
paralyzed, behind it. The child, a black
e>ed Italian boy, swore that the dog's legs
were broken by a fall from a table. "A
little table, so high," he Eaid. measuring
with a hand about two feet from the
ground.
"I doubt that." the doctor said when the
lad had been persuaded to leave his pet
to be destroyed and had gone. "But you
cant show that you doubt them. I listen
to all they have to say about their pets
and extract what I believe the truth."
Not many of the dogs and cats brought
to the clinic have had to be destroyed—
only about one-sixth. Several very sick
animals have been successfully treated and
are well on the way to recovery. When a
serious operation is necessary the patient

Iniversity Medical College, but all medical
cases and minor operations are looked after

a salesman would call "a full line of sam

Neighborhood House on a paying basis.
SUFFRAGE FOR BABES.
Mrs. Bclmont's Settlement
Sugarcoats the "Cause."
"Votes for women soup! Votes for wom
en soup!" It wasn't a street vender ad
vertisng a new edible. It was a cry of
opprobrium, hurled by a group of future
male citizens against the Harlem Woman
Suffrage Settlement, just established by
Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont. president of the
Political Equality Association, at No. S4
East 111 th street." Th« future citizens were
Ftlll in the Knickerbocker stage, but Mi?s
Nettie Podell. the superintendent of, this
suffrage clubhouse, considers that the
younger you take them the better. She
sallied forth, therefore, and inveigled them
in. tempting them with hints about social
evenings and clubs to be formed— jolly
clubs, where games would be played.
Once Inside, she led the conversation in
sidiously into suffrage- lines, and before
those boys left they had organized a club,
named it "The Young Americans," and
fixed the dues at three cents a week.
"What is more, they left wearing "Votes for
"Women" buttons— wearing them proudly, in
conspicuous spots. As the littlest boy of
all trailed out. he asked pugnaciously:
"Miss Podell. kin we fight fr these but
tons, if a feller insults them?"
Miss Podell told them that, instead of
fiehting, it would be better If they got
the boys to join the club. "But I was
tempted." She said afterward, "to tell them
to fight."
The Young Americans have got as far as
a woman suffrage debate, and it was the
hardest thing to get one of them to take
tho negative, side. They were afraid of
hurting Miss Podell's feelings.
Miss Podell, to whom belongs the credit
of suggesting this suffrage settlement, is a
graduate of the School of Philanthropy.
After her graduation slm tvas a probation
officer for two years in Philadelphia, where
the probation officers are appointed by tha
city. The work l"d her to take .special no
tice of the little children who are out on
the streets late at night, and she made up
her mind that if women could vote they
would have more probation officers to look
out for these children. Mis.s I'odell's home
Ik near tilth street, and armed with her
knowledge of conditions in that crowded
district, she approached Mrs. Belmont. Re
sult: the suffrage clubhouse, which is just
on« week old, and except for a sulky fur
nace, appears to be flourishing.
The formal opening will take place the
evening of February L Meantime, various
meetings are being held, some clubs for
boys and girls have been formed and a pub
lic- speaking class for young men has been
organized with P.eed Davis, president of the
Men's K'liial Suffrage league of Columbia
University, as leader. Also Miss Podell vis
its around in the neighborhood and gathers
in converts.
The clubhouse is a cumfortable. three
story house, with a brick yard, which has
some fine trees in it. In summer this will
be used for basketball.

UNITY OF DOUGHS
AH the Same, but Capable of
Kndlcss Variety.
The intelligent housekeeper who wishes
to accomplish most with the least trouble
should be willing to meditate on the state
ment: All doughs are essentially the same,
having as a basis flour or meal, salt,
liquid and a leavener. either yeast, soda,
baking powder or air. the last beaten in
usually with eggs. The further statement
that endless varieties may result from one
simple foundation by varying the method of
combining ingredients or the method of
cooking or the kind of flour used or by
adding shortening, sweetening and flavor
ings of different kinds will give still more
food for thought. It is encouraging to
know that so many different results may
be obtained not only with scarcely any ad
ditional trouble, but also that the increase
in cost of the final product is very little.
Biscuits and muffins will serve to illus
t-ate the ideas in mind. The same in
gredients are used for both— one pint of
flour, three teaspoonfuls of baking powder,
half a teaspoonful of salt, one tablespoon
ful of butter and about three-fourths of a
cup of milk: but different results are ob
tained by different methods of combining
thp ingredients named.
In the. case of . muffins the dry materials
are sifted together, and enough milk is
stirred in to make a drop batter. The but
ter is melted and added last. For biscuit,
the dry ingredients are sifted together. The
butter, cold and hard, is cut into the dry
materials with a knife until it becomes
mealy looking. The milk water might
be used — Is added slowly, cutting contin
ually with a knife until the dough can be
rolled. Enough liquid has been added when
the dough draws away from the sides of
the mixing bowl. Both muffins and biscuits
require a quick oven for baking, but bis
cuits do not require greased pans.
Simple and attractive, variations of the
muffin mixture may be obtained by aiding
fruit, either fresh or dri^d, as one cup of
~fome Ways of the World
"The building of a gown is llko the
painting of a picture," said the woman
whose artistic raiment is the envy of her
friends, "it should grow in the hands of
the artist as. a picture does. A painter does
not plan his picture in all its details and
then paint It at top speed. He tries things,
and so should the dressmaker. She should
take time and not be afraid of ripping.
Therefore, a gown should never be made in
a hurry for a special occasion. Therefore,
also, women who want artistic gowns and
i-ot Inert commercial products should be
willing to pay for the time it takes to
produce a work of art. The making of
gowns should be regarded ns a. serious and
an elevated work, not something trivial.
It is not considered trivial to paint a »•••««
picture or even a- very ordinary one; hud
neither should It ho considered trivial to
adorn the original of the picture- And

fresh berries or chopped apples, or the
same quantity of chopped dates or dates
and nuts. Tt is important, however, to re
membrr that a little less liquid should h*
used in the original muffin mixture, when
fresh fruit is added, and a little more when
dried fruit is used, for in the former case
the fruit itself contains considerable moist
ure, while in the latter it contains very
little, and so absorbs an appreciable
amount. A slightly different result will be
obtained if sliced apples are nlaced on top
of the muffin batter, instead of being stirred
in. A deliciously rich muffin may be made
by increasing the shortening to one quarter
of a cup of butter, and adding one-quarter
of a cup of sugar and two or three eggs.
Still further varieties may be obtained by
substituting different kinds of flour or meal.
For whole wheat muffins use whole wheat
flour, instead of pastry flour. For graham
muffins, use one cup of graham flour and
one cup of wheat flour. For rye muffins
use one cup of rye flour and one cup of
wheat flour. For cornmeal muffins use
three-fourths of a cup of cornmeal and
one cup of flour, increasing the liquid to
one cup, as the meal has greater swelling
pov.-er than the flour. I^eft-over cooked
cereal may be used in similar fashion, al
lowing one cup of the cereal-i such as oat
meal, farina, rice, etc., to one cup of flour.
Changes may also be made in the biscuit
dough to give many pleasing variations.
Old-fashioned shortcake will result if
shortening and sweeting be added to the
original ingredients to the amount of
four tablespoonfuls of butter and two of
sugar. The dough should be rolled out
into «two layers, one buttered and the
other placed on top of it. When baked
the layers may be separated and any fruit
desired sweetened and placed between, aB
strawberries, peaches, oranges, bananas
either fresh or canned.
To make whole wheat or rye shortcake
simply substitute whole wheat or rye flour.
The biscuit dough simply rolled out, cut
Into strips, spread with sugar and spice
is very good, while another pleasing re
sult is obtained by rolling out the- dough
rather thin, placing sliced apples close
together up<->n it and sprinkling with two
tablpspni-Mifnls of sugar and one teappoon
ful ... f cinnamon or mixed spl>-<?s. The
plain biscuit dough or thf> richer one
may be used in this cake.

ALICE PAUL TALKS
Hunger Striker Describes
Forcible Feeding.
Philadelphia, Jan. 22.— "Revolting" is the
•word Miss Alice Paul, the American suf
fragette, who returned on Thursday by
the steamer Haverford from exciting ad
ventures in Englaitd. applies to the forced
feeding which she endured in Holloway
Jail. Miss Paul, by the way. doesn't look
at all like the popular conception of an
ngltator. She astonishes persons who see
her for the first time, after hearing of her
doings, by her exceedingly feminine ap
pearance. She is a delicate slip of a girl,
whom no one would suspect of being an in
terrupter of public meetings and a victim
of prison hardships.
"I resorted to the 'hunger strike' method
twice," she said to a Tribune reporter. "I
was clapped into jail < three times while
in England, and during my first and sec
ond terms I refused to eat. Once I didn't
touch food for five days. Then the au
thorities decided to feed me by force. I
refused to wear the prison garb, too. and
I would not perform the labor I was sen
tenced to do; so, of course, I had to spend
my days in bed. "When the forcible feed
ing was ordered I was taken from my bed,
crrrlcd to another room and forced into a
chair, bound with sheets and sat upon
bodily by a fat murderess, whose duty it
was to keep me still. Then the prison
doctor, assisted by two women attendants,
placed a rubber tube up my nostrils and
pumped liquid food through it into the
stomach. Twice- a day for a month, from
November 1 to December 1, this was done."
When Mips Paul was asked if she ever
threw a stone throuch a window, she said:
"No, indeed. I never did and I never
shall. I think such deeds belong to rioters,
and women are seldom rioters."
Miss Paul merely threw word- at the
Prime Minister, Mr. Asquith, and fright
ened him. she says, nearly to death. It
was during a. meeting at Guild Hall. Miss
Paul, who seems not to mind going without
food for any length of time, got into the
hall the night before, disguised as a scrub
woman, and secreted herself until the meet
ing began.
"It was a weary vig'V she said, "but it
paid. The Prim- Minister mad«» a most
eloquent speeah, and I listened, waiting for
a chance to break in. At last there came
a pause. Summoning all my strength. I
shouted at the top of my voice: 'How
about votes for women?'
"You would have thought T had thrown a
bomb. There was serious disorder, but Mr.
Aoquith v.as the most startled of all. Ton
see, the hall was guarded by a cordon of
police, and h* felt safe from interruption.
TVhile the. officers searched for me he stood
like a statue, after onei great start. T was
found and arrested, and imprisonment fol
lowed."
Miss Paul left Philadelphia for her home
in Moorestown, N. J.. immediately after
landing, and intends to give her attention
for the present to the recovery of her
health, which Buffered somewhat from her
stormy experience. She Is a graduate, of
Swarthmoro College and had gone to Eng
land to continue her studies, when she was
drawn into the militant suffrage movement.

"T,!fc» in Italy is delightful after you
learn how to live It." said a woman who
has Just returned from a year In that coun
try. "But there are several thines besides
the language that you must master before
you can be really comfortable there—shop
ping, for Instance. I used to suppose that
shopping was shopping the world over, but
I found that it It quite ■ different opera
tion In Genoa from what it Is In New York.
Department stores there are Incipient af
fairs. which, compared to ours, are about
like a bicycle compared to a SO-horsepower
automobile. Italy is a land of little, one
room shops, which are more picturesque
than department stores, but not 50 con
venient for the shopper. And some things
that you find for sale here on every side are.
practically unobtainable there.
"Underwear, for Instance. I sailed for
Italy In a hurry, you know, and didn't take
much underwear, so the day after I landed
in Genoa . I started out to buy some. I
wish you could sea the specimens that were
offered me. The only nightgown I could
find was a clumsy thing like a man' night
shirt, only made a trifle smaller. Lingerie
such as you can get here in every shop was
non-existent. The few garments they could
produce were exceedingly high priced, con
sidering their quality. I recollect a petti
coat I succeeded in finding, and bought for
eight lire i,|l 60 in American money). That
isn't much, of course, but for $1 60 In an
American shop one can set a. good, ser
viceable sateen petticoat. That Italian skirt
ripped the first time I wore It. and it was
sewed in some diabolical fashion, so that
when one stitch started the whole seam
was gone.- There" were fiendish little, ruf
fles on the bottom; I remember, and these
ruffles immediately detached themselves
and dragged after me on the ground. Every
stitch of that garment had to be sewed
over on a machine, and that when it wat
new.
"Italian women,'! discovered in time,
wear home-made underwear mostly, and.
that's why the shops don't carry the ready
made. A tourist who had just come from
a Sicilian city of sixty thousand Inhabi
tants told me there wasn't on* single piece
of underwear for women for sale in the
town. The women there, she saM, even
knitted their own cotton stocking^, or had
them knitted by women who did such
work on little hand machines.
"A funny thing you find in Genoa is the
underwear sold by the pound. It is very
heavy woollen underwear, made only at one
place, and people send from, ell over Italy
for four, five or, ten pounds of this under
wear.
"It took me weeks to get used to the.
minute division of trade. In a shop de
voted to tessutl one finds only dress good?,
towelling, all kinds of woven goods in
the piece; not a glove, hairpin, handker
chief, or any of those small things which
eVen ordinary drygoods ahops over here
carry always. The.^e things are found each
in its own particular little store. In Pa-
Concerning Health and "Beatify
The woman who tried to talk without
moving the muscles in her face, in order to
prevent the acquisition of wrinkles, de
ttfasasai into a most stupid, uninteresting
person. Better wrinkles than no facial ex
pression, if these are the alternative, but
a compromise ought to be possible. Tt is
facial habits that make wrinkles— one
woman rumples her forehead wh"n amazed,
another curls down the corners of h°r
mouth, a tntrd furrows her brow when
perplexed and still another purses her lips
■when she talks. They can conquer these
babit3 with a little determination and per*
pistence. and they should do so, if they
consider wrinkles disfiguring.
A supple, live skin is the secret of a.
blooming complexion, and to preserve ths
health of the skin it should be- kept per
fectly clean, fed with good creams when

lermo. mm day. I Tlslted three 9tatl9c«ry
shops in, a vain search for .•erne rubber
hands to put around my p=»p»r>. Finally
one man had th» kindness to tell m« •-„ 1

and th»»r» I did rind tb»m. in company «4t|
overshoes and raincoat?.

wouldn't believe that there (MM be a meat
shop In existence which «i»n» only en? Htn«
of meat. On* man sells beef, another T*ej.
and so on. Br*»ad and cak<» ar»n't four.'!

"The little department stores, limited „
.■-„ seem, are a groat relief after th« en*.
article shops. But rh— • *r* funny. Noa%
have more than on* elevator, and'irh*^
you want to visit another v -"» a cl?r*<
leaves Mi counter and takes you ? .
Some of their advertisements are d?lkieu«.
I remember one ,-,♦ a stor« owned by a t&m
whose nam» in KngUsh would be 'Mr. Ap
ples.* I.ovtns: Mothers".* It began in *car»-
Jl*ad typ*. 'before spoiling the lovely form*
of your adored little children with hideous
malformations in the shape of clothes visit
Apples' 3.' •
"These little department stores hare me>
great advantage— nearly every on* display*
signs saying "prezzi flssati'— fixed price*.
In most Italian, shops you have to barasta
and haggle endlessly to get anywhere Mar
the native prices, and it is a relief to ass
this 'prezzi fissati* sign, which tells jut:
that the prices charged there are unalt»-.
able.
"Italians understand that in most of tMr
shops they must chaffer. Americans caa't
get used to this sort of thing, but if they
don't resort to it they are robbed.
To go back to clothes: There !a oa*
nice thing about Italy. You can get gar.
ments made to order with astonishing
celerity. At least that's true of blows*,
bats and suits. Once in Palermo the
blouse of my travelling suit gave cut. hi
the shop I visited there was nothing that
would do. 'Why not have one- made?" at.
quired the man. 'I leave in two days;
there would not be time," I replied. 'Pleat? 1
of time,' he declared. My measurement '
were taken forthwith. I chose silk match
ing my suit, and the second day after It
was ordered my blouse was sent to me. It
was entirely satisfactory, and the who!*
bill was only $6. In New York I have tali
$15 for one I liked no better, and had to
wait weeks to get it. I thought ray 91
blouse a great bargain until. in Genoa* I
got one made of the same quality of ant
and with more work on it for $4 50.
"There - v ls just one big modern depart
ment store in Italy, the Unions Co-op«»
ativa. in Milan. This has more than twelve)
hundred employes, imposing- buildings. 1
large restaurant and a full Una of depart
ments. It is co-operative, and the ananai
profits of 153,000 or so are divided aaMag
the nine thousand co-operators, of waaaa
the King is one."

."Insufficient sleep." says a physician,
"is- one of the. crying evils of the An?.
Work and pleasure encroach ur^- •*
hours of rest, and bc-dy and mind M *■

have their hours of sl?ep shortened and
suffer all their livc3 in consequence: A
child of ten or eleven rarely get 3 more
than eight or nine hours* sle*p. wa»r«is
it should have t-n or eleven. Up to trea
ty at least nine hours of sleep ar» needed,
and an average adult need 3 el?ht. . TH«n»
