Home Incineration for All
Garbage an Index of True
Efficiency in Housekeeping
The Fly-Breedtog Garbage Pail Is Gradually Being Elim

Garbage Incineration Is the Rule.
By MRS. CHRISTINE FREDERICK,

his wanderings and can say con
clusively that the Karbage pall is his
cradle, and that we have the gar
liage pall to thank for odors, disease.
In our transitional period botweer

ter solution Is evidenced by the
umber of excellent Incinerates on
the market. Many of these are Iti

apartment houses and Institutions.
And until the city takes hold of the
garbage question as It has so ably
done in certain small cities abroad,
we look to the Inclnerlte for the in
dividual householder. All makes of
these are modeled on somewhat
similar lines that of a cast-Iron,
tove-llke fixture with a grate fitted
to be oporated by gas. The Interior
crate Is so made that when it Is
filled with garbage the heat can be
turned on and the garbage consumed
In a comparatively short while.
Borne of the models are flush with
the wall, others project llko a small
stove. There Is no odor, gas or
smoke, as the device Is connected di
rectly with the flue.
Preferably such a fixture should be
connected near the kitchen range pr
Ink where refuse can be directly
deposited Into it. Tho usual size will
hold the garbage an entire day,
which will require ono Incineration
only of about half an hour or less.

Peter's Adventures in
By LEONA DALRYMPLE.
JOAN'S AMAZING BELIEFS.
I WONDER If any man ever fully un
derstands a girl like Joan Arbeck.
Truly to me she was a most be
wildering mixture of brilliance and
inconsistency. She knew, as Mary had
once told me a little wistfully, what she
thought about everything, and yet there
were frivolous moments whon you
doubted if she eer really thought. In
her quieter, cleverer moods you mar
veled at the huntrcis side which I had
met that first nlsht at the Metz.
"What are you thinking of?" asked
"You," I blurted.
"And just what about me?"
What Peter Wondered.
l wondered why a girl with the
brains and beauty you have frivols her
outh away In mad pursuit of the male."
"Mad pursuit!" echoed Joan with a
iaugh. "Peter, you're ungallant."
"You know precisely what I mean," I
Insisted. "This silly daring game so
many of vou New York women play
fcmo'Klng a little, drinking a Utile, inn
ing too much, giving a man eternally
the chance to misunderstand, and when
he does "
"When he does?" encouraged Joan,
"When he does, dropping him with a
dreadful thud Into the Umbo of forgot
ten things. A girl llko you should mar
i y, and marry soon some splendid
C 'i. me," sighed Joan, "he's already
r laughed vexedly.
"Joan, you're making fun of me.
"I can't help It, Peter, you're so ter
ribly In earnest blocking out this smug,
respectable existence for me. Besides I
Intend to marry some day. I've never
said I haven't."

vices would greatly reduce the un
pleasantness of the usual methods
of garbage collecting on a dumb
waiter by a Janitor goes without
saying. But Its especial advantage
Is ,from the sanitary point of view.
Brcause with such a device there
would be no garbage pall In the
kltcacn. Also tho cost of service
would be lessened to an apartment
house owner who would not need a
porter to look after garbage disposal-
. ., .
for those of us who live In de
tached houses, such devices are still
possible. They make all tho dif
ference between a high standard of
housekeeping and the dangerous
presence of a fly-breeding pall.
Papers, too, offer a problem to
many, who have not permanent
Janitor service. More households
should use the wire rubbish burn
ers, which can be kept In the kitch
en while in use, but lifted out and
burned completely on any vacant
apace. Tha wire here Is so well
made and the device eo convenient
to lift and handle that It Is indis
pensable to those living In suburban'
or detached houses. It is so much
better and safer than wicker bas
kets, boxes, or receptacles.
Those who must still put up with
the ordinary garbage can and who
have a vp..-d or ground can have an
underground garbage receiver which
partly solves the problem by keep
ing the pall afely out of the housa,
away from animals, until its perma
nent removal. A plan tried In Bos
ton was that every person should
ubo a specially made paper bag "?n
the garbage pall. The garbage was
well drplned and when the col
lector came he simply removed the
bag dT garbage, leaving the pall
much more pleasant and sanitary.
The way garbage Is handled and
the dally condition ot the garbage
pall is a true index of tho caliber
of the housekeeping.

AS to the origin of the waltx
there are varied opinions.
Professor Desrat claims that
it came from Russia : an
other writer states that It is derived
from an old dance, the Allcmandc.
Notwithstanding this controversy. It
has been proven beyond a doubt that
the waltz In Its first form came from
Italy to Provence, and thence to tho
Court of Valols, under the name of
"La Volta." Henry, the third, and
Marguerite, of Valols, were both fer
vent devotees of this dance, which
they called, "Valse a trols temps."
Other dances overshadowed and
crowded It out later on, and llttlu
was heard of it until, in Its present
form, it was brought from Germany
to Paris in 1T95. Castil-Blaxe. an ac
cepted authority,' called It "that Imp
from France brought up In Ger
many." The fli st German waltz
tune was the well-known "Ach du
llcber Augustln," and dates us fur
back as 1770.
It Immediately hecame a favorito
with tho pleasure-loving Parisians,
and when the Austrian embassy In
Paris Introduced Its famous ''de
jeuner dansant," In the beginning of
the nineteenth century, the waltz
was the prime favorito at these ga
therings. Its reception by the Eng
lish public waa no leBs cordial when
the French dancing master. Cellarl
us Introduced the waltz into London
society In 1812. Caricatures appeared
in the papers picturing the senti
ments of the ultra-purist section "if
the community, who hnd persuaded
themselves that thf Introduction of
tho waltz Into England was a con
clusive step on the national Down
ward Path. There Is still In exist
ence a letter from a shocked parent,
who hurried his daughter away from
a ballroom where he saw his precious
offspring held by a young man In a
position that he could not describe
belter than the "very reverse of back
The First Round Dance.
This first real lound dance did not
become popular until tho Russian
Emperor Alexander, with Countess
Lteven as partner, had danced it in
JS13 at Almachs, then tho meeting
placo of the fashionable world nf
For a lone time, however, the
waltz was a perpetual thorn in the
side of the anemic moralist, and
even as late as 1S70, a pamphlet by
John Haven Dexter was Issued
against It. In which ho objected to
tho lawless arm of tho sterner sex
encircling the graceful form of a
young and beautiful female.
At the present day a new form
of dance has crowded out the old
fashioned waltz. It is the hesita
tion waltz. Befdrc I ro any further
I want to admit beln no great au
thority on this dance; T only try to
explain tho way It Is done bv the
best dancers. Every one seems to do
it difforontly, and I know at least
four persons, whose word I would
swear by, who assure me that they
are the originators of the hesitation.
In fact, my wife and I bcem to be
ONE of the newest veils is of
black mesh with a border
of narrow white velvet rib
bon. Sand ribbon Is also
used In the same way. Vehct spots
of various sorts are another feature
of the new veilings. The design of
a head of wheat in velvet or chenille
Is striking against tho fine mesh of
other new veils. Hand-run filet la a
material that is Uncling favor with
many, since the designs are so
spaced that the eyestrain Is i educed
to a minimum. Many of the new
veils uro fitted with narrow elastic
about the upper part, ho that they
need not be removed from the hat
and fit snugly over the faco.
Many fushton authorities believe
that tho high-necked waist will not
be generally adopted for bummer
wear, at least. The open. V-shaped
neck will be most popular. How
ever, collars will be high In back
and fit closely to the neck, conceding
bomethlng to the decree of high
necks. Simple, semi-tailored effects
are featured in the spring walMs,
and long sleeves are almost In
variable With the icturn to the quaint
styles of past centuries comes tho
icassurance that fichus will be worn
on dresses and on separate waists.
Vestees of dainty materials are to
be popular again.

goes back on her left foot for tho

then forward, loft, right finally

that a great many people start with
the hesitathie steps and finish with
the waltz. This Is a matter of pref

indefinitely. By counting 1, 2. 3, 4, C,

you can't very well go wrong; and

a reiterated wish, for the granting

three ordinary waltz measures or

explain or some of your own. After
you have a rough Idea of this first

good waltz has certain strains which,

you will not fall to recognize as call

In my opinion it Is much better to
hesitate when the music hesitates,
and, when' It does not, simply do the
ordinary waltz movement or steps
to that tempo. Avoid always the
terrible schedule which obliges you
to waltz, hesitate, etc., no matter
what tuno is being played or who
Is In your way. That kind of dan

The Half and Half.
There is Jlttle or no difficulty
about this dance, except the time,
and that Is a little difficult because
it Is entirely new to dancing. It Is
t-4 time, which means there are rive
beats to the bar. In waltz time
there are six, and you usually count
1-2-3, 1-2-3: hut In the half and half
you count 1-3-3, 1-'.'.
And now for the dance. The ordi
nary position is assumed, the gen
tleman holding his paitner a little
farther away from him than In the
waltz, and on the first three counts
you take one long, slow step, and on
the next two counts you take t'vo
steps. For Instance, supposing the
man starts off forward with his
left foot: he In a way hesiiates on
this foot for throe counts. Then he
takes two short stps for the other
two counts right, left; now the right
foot comes forward for three
counts, and so on. The lady does the
same step on the opposite foot. This
is the half and half, and when done
properly looks like something be
tween the tango, lame duck, and
hesitation. It is a very quiet and
Number of Steps Unlimited.
The steps you can do In this dance
arc unlimited. For Instance, the gen
tleman can turn the lady so that she
Is going in tho same direction as he
Is, and they can do the eight step

If you wish to spin you must do
so on tho slow step, continuing for
