Dr. Kin, Woman Physician of
Ancient Nation, Addresses
"The new woman in China" Is one of
the chief factors in maintaining; the
new Chinese republic, accorlng to Dr.
Yamel Kin, foremost woman physician
of the ancient nation of the East She
addressed the National Georgraphic So
ciety last night and painted a picture of
the great progress China is making un
der the stimulus of western innova
tions and republican ideals.
"China Is studying the west as you
of the west will never study the east,"
she said. "The ideas and the Ideals of
thousands of years cannot be swept
aside "in a few'years' time, however."
Dr. Kin paid particular stress upon
the development of medicine and sur
gery in China, and the great good it
had already accomplished. District
nurses are also spreading knowledge of
House To Aid Girls.
Speaking of corrective institutions for
girls, she said the home for unfortunate
girls stands In the place of parents for
such girls. When they have been in the
home for a. certain length of time and
are living good lives they are asked at
a stated time every year If they wish
to marry. If they do It is advertised
that so man girls at the home are ready
to be married. But the men applying
for them have to pass a rigid examina
tion and show that they are engaged In
some good business.
Dr. Kin said the Chinese plan of
family life gives the girl into the guid
ing care of her husband's mother,
which is looked upon as being of help
to her after she leaves this home.
Problems of Women's Labor.
Although the man is tho head of the
family' in China and really has the right
of life and death In his family, "yet
very seldom Is there a man who has
courage enough to impress his "will upon
his family," said Dr. Kin', adding that
he leaves to the women of the home
all that pertains to the home.
There are some theatrical companies
made up entirely of Women and man

He also saw in this section street afte r street of handsome homes, occupied by
their owners, the vast majority of whom had formerly been rent-payers. These homes
have individual porches. They are of pressed brick, reinforced with steel construction,
and each home is given a distinct individuality by the various shaped dormer windows
that ornament the French roofs.
The interiors contain six full rooms a nd bath, together with all modern equip
ment. Only the usual necessary articles of furniture are required.
And These Homes Sell for
$3300 $200 $26.92
(Which Include All IntcrcM.)
$3,300 is less than you could build such a home for if you paid spot cash. The two
hundred dollars ($200) cash payment represents an amount only sufficient to insure the pur
chaser's good intentions. The monthly payments of $26.92 are less than the monthly rentals of
a home of equal quality so advantageously loca ted.
TO INSPECT THESE HOMES Take any G street car marked
"Brookland" or "North Capitol and W streets," get off at Rhode

Provided they are purchased from the
fund for the caro and maintenance of
grounds and are saved from eating
poison ivy in undue quantities; It has
been determined legal and safe, by the
Pepartments of War and Agriculture,
for goats to be purchased and kept at
Fort "Washington, Md.
The animals are expected to prove
valuable In eating grass which has been
under Indictment for some time as a
protection to mosquitos. There is much
malaria at Fort Washington. The mos
quitos are the real end of 'all agitation.
In a roundabout way the goats are ex
pected to put the Insects to rout.
"When the War Department deter
mined the legality of the purchase It
was suggested that the goats would IdU
themselves eating poison Ivy. The De
partment of Agriculture, well acquaint
ed with the iron and adamant' qualities
of a goat's digestive tract, decided that
the goats were safe unless they partook;

chased and a census of mosquitos taken
later to determine how wise was tne
purchase of the ruminants.
