NEW TRAMP THEORY;
Caused by "Moral Fatigue" of
CHILDREN SURFEITED WITH LABO
•lull Uooie Supplies Data for' Xew
and Stroll? Argument Aeainit
Certain of the Chicago child lovers and
Sociological students just now engaged in in
vestigating the child labor conditions of Chi
cago believe that they have discovered rea
sons for the swift betterment of these condi
tions far more important and weighty than
those usually advanced in this connection.
Not only U the normal growth and develop
ment, physical, mental, and moral, of the
child who begins work too-early or who labors
excessively impeded, stunted, and ruined, but
euch a child Is in grave danger of "contract-
Ing a disease which will presently prevent
him from working at all. "Moral fatigue"
la the name given this disease by the Chicago
people who have studied and discovered it.
"Moral fatigue" It it, according 10 certain of
these students, which makes' many a man *
"We all feel more or less privileged to
laugh at the tramp for ' some "mysterious
reason," said Mies Jane A detains recently, ad
dressing the members of the Chicago Bual
neea Woman's Club on "The Business Wom
an** Opportunity for Philanthropy," "al
though why we should feel so authorized to
laugh at this particular brother man I am at
a loss to understand. Certain It is, we
should not laugh so readily did we realize
that the tramp has frequently been made
such by conditions largely beyond his con
trol. " •
Hold* Child Labor Responsible.
"Child labor, undertaken too early or
performed to aice&s, Is responsible for a
large cumber of the tramps and ambition
leas wayfarers of America. The boy er girl
who works too early is surfeited with labor,
bankrupt of ambition, long before the time
t> hc'ii fork should properly begin at all.
"At Hull House we have been observing
these facts, collecting this data, for six or
seven years. ever since the l&ttt wave of in
terest la child conditions and child labor.
It takes nearly ten years to secure any re
liable or valuable data of this kind. And'
we notice that the child workers who were
bright and eager arid ambitious when com
mencing work some six or seven years ago
are different nowadays. Nearly all of them
are dull and lifeless, lacking energy, and
without ambition; many are actual tramps.
"Everybody knows the bad effect of a
surfeit of any good thing. Few of us but
can remember some bit of childish overin
dulgenoe which forever spoiled our enjoy
ment af that particular effort or article. I
myself cannot think, even now, of a par
ticular kind oi molasses candy without a
feeiiug of nauseating disgust; I aie too much
of it at one time. The boy or girl who begins
■fork too early finds him or herself In pre
cisely that condition when the Interest, ex
citement, and variety of the first two or
three years of work have evaporated. Intense
and terrible fatigue, both physical and moral,
inevitably overtakes such children, the boys
especially, and they frequently become
Attributed to Holiday Rnah.
Mrs. Florence Kelley, in a recent public
• ■idreas, attributed much evil to the holiday
"rush," which provides many young chil
dren of both sexes with the oportunity to
begin work "down town"— the stores, can
dy factories and places where candles, greens
end other holiday articles are made in great
"The chance of money quickly earned dur
ing the holiday season lias caused many chil
dren to- forsake school, and, after having
worked during the time before the holidays,
thoy often remain out of school altogether,"
was her statement of these conditions. "In
the region around Hull House we. find any
number of boys and girls about IS or 18 years
old who are suffering from what we term
moral fatigue. They will not work and will
not try to get work. These boys and girls,
we think, have lost their energy aud power
through overwork, caused <by tremendous
physical effort when they were too young to
bear the burden."
T. D. Hurley, chiet probation officer of Chi
cago, unhesitatingly confirms these opinions
from his own experience. Newsboys, he be
lieves, provide the sole exception to the so
ciological rule to the effect that "the chll-1
who begiLa work too early never amounts
to much as an adult." Newsboys, he de
clares, while stunted in physical development
from lack of sleep and irregular hours, suf
fer less depletion mentally than do other
»:hild worker*, because of tht>ir superior op
portunities to secure sufficient .food, their out
door existence and the fact that tiiey nave
change and variety in plenty.
Young Worker* Grow Dull.
"The child In the store or factory, on the
other hand," says Mr. Hurley, "rarely finds
much use for the intellectual part of Ms na
ture. Often it U a question of doing the
same thing—pasting a label on a can, for
Instance—over and over again, without va
riety or eesaatton. The child naturally grows
dull and Jaded. The>n, when the factory' work
clips away from him, as it must inevitably
do under present conditions, there is the
ntie&t possible material and opportunity for
the future tramp. In fact, little else is pos
sible to such a child."
The lajst statement is true, according to
toe sociological students and workers of Chi
cago, ior two reasons. First, the child has
lost the desira and ambition for work. Sec
ondly, there is no work for him, no work that
he can do. Stunted in growth and physical
development by the premature endeavor, per
formed under faulty conditions, he is not
capable of manual labor. He is too oM to
be willing to go back to school, too old to
learning of a trade to be easy. So, almost
inevitably and because he cannot help It—he
frequently becomes a 'tramp. For the girl
who works too early, and who acquires no
adequate or lasting education, or occupation
of any kind, there la an alternative of star
vation wages in a factory or of slatterly
house and home keeping. Girls, however,
while becoming quite as dull and fagged
mentally, •■stick out" belter than the boys
and keep on working until they marry—or
The chief probation officer also agrees with
Mrs. Kelley In ber statement that the holiday
child worker seldom goes back to school.
"Let such a child have a taste of 'money, of
independence, of the axcitement of earning
THE DAILY RATION
Be Sure Its Right.
Sc'.entUU have carefully estimated the
quantity of food required to sustain human
being*. The average fixed amount U about
t'Vii ounces of water-free food, consisting of
l>i ounces fat, 3 ouu-es dry albumen, it;
ounces dry starch. It is noticeable that the
amount oi starch required is almost four
times greatest. This is because starch is the
thief food in the muscles, and also serves
as the principal fuel for maintaining bodily
heat. A diet of flesh food is incapable of sus

MISS GOULD'S PROTEGE
She . Will Send Her Namesake to
.... YuhkiLr College.
Helen Miller Gould, daughter, of. the late
Jay Gould, has written to Frank It Tutt,
live stock agent for the Missouri Pacific
railroad, offering to pay the expenses of hU'
daughter, Helen Gould Tutt, at Vassar col
lege. There has long been a friendship be
tween Helen Gould and Mr. Tutt. In fact, it
dates back to the days when Jay Gould was
the wizard of Wall street and Mr. Tutt was
his warm personal friend. Mr. Tutt was for
merly a secret service agent in the employ
of the Missouri Pacific railroad. Miss Gould
has frequently sent for Mr. Tutt to accom- |
pany her on trips about the country. He has
often visited at Lyndhurst, her country home
in the suburbs of New York. Mr. Tutt re
cently accompanied Miss Gould to Buffalo.
Miss Gould made many inquiries concerning
the young daughter thai ; had been named
for her. Shortly after Mr. Tutt returned
from Buffalo he got a check for his services,
but no mention was made of th 9 daughter.
He filled a commission to buy Miss Gould
a saddle horse for her personal use. Again
a personal letter of thanks. And so it was
a great surprise when Mr. Tutt received a
letter from Miss Gould offering to pay for
a college education for his daughter at any
college he might select. The letter was brief
and contained little more than an offer to
pay for a four years' course. The daughter
quickly expressed a preference for Vassar
and there she will go. The girl is 13 years
old, was born in Lexington, Mo., but has
lived in Kansas City nearly all her life. She
is a student at the Central high school and
has never seen Miss Gould.
Queen Alexandra Responsible for
the Revival of the Art.
Fashion now decrees that the society lady ]
must be able to manipulate a spinning wheel.
This is owing to the revival of its glories
under royal patronage. England's present
queen has always taken a great Interest In
spinning, and she has established a spinning
school at Sandringham, where most of the
i village girls go not only to learn, but to com
pete for the valuable prizes given for the best
work. The Countess of Aberdeen, too, has
always been a strong supporter of the spin
ning wheel, and using It is one of her favorite
occupations. The dowager duchess of Ar
gyle, the mother-in-law of the Princess
Louise, is an adept with the wheel. She took
great Interest in all the work and sports of
the servants 1, young and old, on the immense
estates of her late husband, and she saw so
much spinning among the cottagers that it
created in her an interest In the work.
Not only do the "fashionables" give them
selves up to the art, but many of the middle,
and even lower classes, find spinning a pleas
ant and profitable occupation. Schools have
been established in London and many of
England's large towns lor teaching it; the
wheels can be had easily, and at a low price,
while there is such a demand for hand
woven dress fabrics that almost anything
will be given for them.
THE FRENCH MILLINER
She Selects Freely Prom Materials
A noticeable point about Parisian millinery
Is the use of materials for -decoration that
the American milliner is rather afraid to
handle. The French milliner takes a. circle
I of coarse dark gray linen, fashions it into
a flat plate toque, lines it off the face with
! tucks of white tulle ' -timed with white
straw, drapes twisted . & :ds of straw about
the crown or top of the plate, puts a fancy
■white plume on somewhere toward the back
and then sells it as a creation.
The Parisian allows herself a free hand in
the selection of birds and plumage to com-
I pelte her work. She is fond of the green
parrot, the entire seagull and the peacock
feather, and all these bizarre ornaments are
effective when manipulated by her skillful

pretty green parrots, their bodies and wings

miss sTueTahTqng to marry
Another of the Pretty Slater* to Wed
Still another of the famously pretty Ah
Fong Bisters of Honolulu will be led to the
marriage altar by an American. The Hono
lulu newspape.rs say that tho approaching
wedding in the great Ah Pong mansion in the j
suburbs of Honolulu will be the moat notable
event, in point of ceremony and style, of any
similar affairs that have taken place- there. !
Miss Sue Ah Fong will be wedded to Samuel
8. Hocraft, ■who has been considered one of
the foremost -matrimonial catches in Oregon
for several years. He is a Harvard university
man, an heir to large mining wealth, and
a traveler and polished club man. After ten
years of mingling in society in Europe and
much of America he has laid his heart at the
feet of a lovely daughter of the tropical
islands In the south seas, and he snaps his
fingers at all talk about the Chinese father
i of his prospective bride.
ORNAMENTS FOR THE If AIR.
Fashionable ha'r ornaments for evening
wear are formed of large velvet roses studded
with rhinestones to imitate dewdrops. Mar
about feathers, powdered with fine jet span
gles, are brilliant and becoming, and a pop
ular combination is made of a wired velvet
bow with an aigrette placed sidewiae, not
upright, as feathers in the hair are usually
worn. Large butterflies of wired gauze, out
lined and elaborately patterned in silver, are
new and effective, and a variety of new
ideas are made up of rose leaves', delicate
fpatbers, gauze ribbons and beads. These
all are arranged for a high coiffure.
GOLDSMITH'S VIEWS OP WOMEN.
The modest virgin, the prudent wife or the
careful matron are much more serviceable in
life than pettieoated philosophers, blustering
heroines or virago queens. She who makes
her husband and her children hippy, who
reclaims the one from vice and t 1 .ins up the
other to virtue, is 1 a much greater character
t van ladies described in romances, whose sole
occupation is to murder mankind with shafts
'rori their quiver or their eyes.—Goldsiniifc.

MODELS HAVE CURIOUS HABITS
The Artist la RaUing v. Vaiu.il> of

Charlotte Learning's work has aroused
enough attention to make it unnecessary to
describe it from th© artistic standpoint, but
the difflcultieb attendant upon that work are
of the kind which may easily tempt a woman
to the eccentricities of a Rosa Bonheur. To
be conventional and at the same time 10 paint
animals Is impossible. Yet, so far, Mis»
Learning has yielded only the fow points
generally yielded by a woman—she wears a
short skirt and the thickest of shoes to keep
out the cold of a studio suited to woolly
"But it is better than the stockyards," she
says, "whare you sit in a corner of a pen
aiid sketch like lightning, because you know
that when you come back to-morrow to-day's
models will all be legs of lamb and mutton
chops." Miss Learning and one other sheep
painter in town are the only two who have
ever had the privilege of painting aheep at
the stockyards, and they have proved that
there are artistic possibilities even in a
Misa Learning belongs to one of the oldest
of Chicago's families, and all her early train
ing Was obtained at the Art institute. At first
she turned her attention to the sketching of
her favorite setter dog, named Cleveland, who
was her devoted companion until his death
from «H age a year ago. Then she studied
lows for a year or two, and eventually elie
found that sheep, being more docile, were bet
ter models and better adapted to a winter's
woric In a city studio. During the winter she
works at the studio near her home, but in
the summer she studies domestic animals on
their native heaths.
When she went out to the farm she was
especially intertf-teO in painting cows, and
one of the pictures she did at this time oho
called "A Uovine Madonna." Apropos of her
study of calves, she tells of an old farmer
who ca-.ne iutc the Art institute one day when
she was copying Millet's "New-Born Cult."
He wiitcheri her in silence some time and then
said solemnly: 'How much'll you jjit for
that?" She named the price, and then lie
pointed to the original. "How will that come,
frame and ail.'"
"H'm," he said scornfully, "the calf in
your'n is lots more like live calves than the
other'u in the frame."
Wail* at the farm she went out one day into
•a lot where tbeie was a handsome bull. She
was painting busily behind her easel when
her sister rod« up with the hired man, wnose
under lip dropped with amazement as he
caught sigiii. of (ho artist under the tree.
He said he reckoned she had better come
out of the lot, for the bull was pawing. Miss
Learning's sister asked what ha usually did
aftur he pawed.
"Last time," answered the swain, picking
up a pitchfork in the wagon, "he lulled a
man—well, not quite killed, but he hooked
him pretty bad, ao's ihe most died." Not
caring for details about the last victim, the
sister rushed in and dragged the fresh can
vas over tho grass with one hand and the
astonished a/t.ist with the other, while the
hired man brandished th<? pitchfork and
climbed over the fence just as the bull rushed
against the gaite which the two ■women had
slammed shut but a moment before.
Not willing to lose this opportunity, how
ever. Miss Learning went out again, taking
the precaution of keeping a fence between her
and the irate model. Again her sieter came
■to the rescue just aa the bull was making up
the hill, after having, in his rage against an,
broken through the fence. This time Mias
Learning found it necessary to take to the
fence herself, leaving the unfinished portrait
to the mercy or the original.
Last summer. In a small Wisconsin town,
she hunted some time for a flock of sheep,
and after she found them, sought out the
owner, who happe^d to be the village
butcher. Going into one shop, ehe asked if
he had any abjection to her painting his
sheep. The butcher looked in surprise.
"I don't know as they need painting," he
said. She explained, and he agreed to let her
if she would give him the picture.
During the recent wild-animal exhibition
at the Coliseum, Miss Learning went down
every day to «Katch. She took camp stool
and sketching block, and wtfuld choose suit
able places to get the lion and the buffalo in
their best poses. Never was she without a
train of interested, not to a*y curious, spec
tators, who not only observed the work, but
also remarked upon it in stentorian whispers.
On© old man leaned over her shoulder and
asked in a friendly manner: "Shan't 1 ask
the keeper to brush the hide o' that there
beast? The dirt won't show up well in the
Another inquisitive onlooker asked if 6he
thought the "animals minded?" The artist
replied that, from the nervous behavior of
some of them, she thought they were prob
ably a little self-conscious. The restlessness
of the buffalo bore lier out in this statement,
for from the moment he caught sight of the
moving pem-il he began to walk ba<_k and
forth in an ilrritated fashion. He did not
care to be lionized.
An interest in circuses is •clearly within the
art atmosphere of the animal painter, though
there Is not much opportunity for anything
but the hastiest sketches, and the elephant
devouring peanuts does not belong to the
"eteraul in art."
Every animal, wild or domestic, has a fas
cination for Mis 3 Learning, who considers her
painting of cats as recreation. Por this work
she is bringing up a family of kittens, whose
poses are a constant artistic stimulus.

Even the highest class Japanese women
have their household duties to perform, and,
no matter how rich the familj, Japanese
girls are brought up to be able to sew, cook
and attend to their homes.
In Japan the higher clas6 women never go
to market. The market comes to them—that
is, the dealer* call and offer wares for sale
at their customers' doors. The fleh mer
chant brings his stock and, if any is sold,
prepares it for cooking. The greengrocer, the
sake dealer and nowadays the meat man all
go to their patrons' houses.
Nearly all Japanese women make their
own clothes; at all events, even the very
richest embroider their garments themselves.
Dinner ia served at or a little before dusk

The rice bowl Is on the left, the soup bowl in

Great nicety and artistic taste are used
in the preparation of the dinner. Foods are
served in the UoiLtiest fashion, and if guests
are present the meal develops into an affair
