Savannah Woman Taiks Infan
Mis? Ella O'Hara, of the Savan
nah Associated Charities, has just
returned from New York, Newark
and Baltimore, where she spent hen
vacation. The ? Savannah News
prints the following interview with
her in regard to the plague o: in
fantile paralysis of which she made,
as far as possible, a study where it
'"The human body is attacked in
a very peculiar way,'' said Miss
O'Mara, "the first symptoms being
in g a headache, then a shari? pain at
the base of the brain, then vomiting
and then paralysis of the limbs
from the knees downard. If the
patient does not die he is left a per
manent cripple. And all this hap
pens in a very few hours. The dai
ly number of new cases in New
York City is about one hundred, of
which sometimes as many as fifty
per cent die.
"No preventive seems to have
been found," she continued, ' and
no cure seems to be known. For
merly it was believed by physicians
that a diseased mouth spread the
disease germs, then it was said that
Mies and other vermin caused the
infection, but now it is admitted by
all investigators that no exact
knowledge is at hand as to its ori
gin, but many students of the
epidemic are beginning to believe
that pet dogs and cats play an im
portant part in its inception.
"I was greatly interested in the
different methods employed in the
different cities, hoping to check the
spread of the disease. In New York
all churches are closed to children.
T'ne children are also debarred from
all popular resorts, including Coney
Island and all moving picture shows.
Stray dogs and cats are being col
lected by the wagonload, and some
that are pets are likewise taken to
the dog pound and later killed. The
number of funerals also impressed
me. I was sitting on the porch
with frieuds with whom I was visit
ing and during a period of two
hours I counted five children's fu
nerals pass the house.
Tn Newark daily mass meetings
are held and are attended by all
physicians and charity workers,
hoping to learn of a preventive and
and a cure. In Ballimore several
new cases were reported every day.
More than $-i,000 has been raised
by popular subscription to be spent
in investigating the origin and re
sults of the contagion. The fire
department members are continu
ously engaged in making investiga
tions of conditions.
"Everywhere the Charity Organ
ization Society, which is the g?n?ral
name *or the combined endeavor
of all affiliated organizations, is un
tiring in its efforts to aid the au
thorities. All charity workers go
about insisting that yards, drains
and a?leys be carefully cleaned;
that all windows be screened and
that everybody eat proper food."
Excerpts from Sermon.
"The world of wealth is passing
away. All the millions of the Van
derbilt, Rothschilds, Birard or
Rockefeller do not insure happiness.
The world of pleasure and enter
tainment passeth away. Theodore
Hook, who made the world laugh,
failed to make bis own heart laugh,
and Grimaldi, the noted clown, was
unable to supply the remedy for his
own ills. The world of honor and
power pass away, and when the
great emperors find their last end
aporoachiug they feel that though
they have been everything it bas
been but nothing. The bones of
th" ruler and the slave will look the
same in that fina! day of reckoning.
It is utter fully for people to spend
their lives in bali rooms, at cards, or
in the theaters, and time tims vainly
spent can never bring peace to the I
soul. The only. thing worth while J
in this ivorld is to do the will of j
No Liquor For National Guard, j
The sending to or using liquor in
the army camps of the National
Guard will be absolutely forbidden,
according to a statement by Adju
tant General McCain. This will j
apply to alt oiiicers and men who j
may be called into service in Mexico
at this time.
When General McCain was asked
about this matter he said, "No, I
cannot at this instant cite to you
the particular section of the regu
lations under which the use of li
quors in army camus is forbidden,
but I assure you that members of j
the National Guard who may be
sworn into the federal service will
not be permitted to use liquors,
neither will liquors be permitted to
be sent into the army camps."

HAS WON DESERVED FAVOR
American Cooks More and More Com
ing to Recognizo thc Advantages
of the Casserole.
Why is this cooking en casserole, or
in earthenware, so popular in France?
Because in no other way is it possible
to obtain such delicious flavors.
There are three things to remember
in casserole cooking: First, thc food
must be entirely prepared before the
baking is begun; second, the oven
should be only moderately hot at first,
then reduced to slow heat; third, the
food should not be allowed to boil and
must be given time enough for long
A meat casserole of any kind needs
at least an hour and a half to cook,
while many meats, fruit and desserts
require from three hours upward. In
the old French ovens covered crocks
containing beans, or apples, or fruits,
for the cooked compote so beloved by
them, were put in the oven at night
to cook slowly until the next morning.
This was a part of the frugality, the
putting to account every bit of meat,
which is still the habit of all French
For the best results, or I may say
the most striking results, get a cheap
cut of meat, which is not liable to be
tender, and see what a transformation
will be worked ty the casserole cook
ing. Cut "the meat in pieces suitable
for serving, and add some thickening
agent which will absorb the excess
moisture, leaving the food just moist
enough to be served attractively.
Rice is good with game, chicken,
lamb and veal; dried bread crumbs
with pork; macaroni and pearl barley
with beef. Sometimes with young
chicken or tender fish potatoes may
be used, but never when long cook
ing is required, for they cook to a
USEFUL SHELF FOR KITCHEN
Device Will Save Housewife Many
Steps In the Preparation of the
Family's Dainty Meals.
Only four boards, 8 inches wide and
42 inchas long, three boards, 8 inches
wide and 24 inches long, and about a
dozen screw hooks, aro needed to
make this handy and useful shelf.
Just under the right of the shelf are
small spice boxes, and just below this
is placed a ltd or pan rack. To the
left are screwed into the shelf board
one or two rows of screw hooks for
spoons, cups and all small utensils.
More screws may be' placed in the
back of the shelf boards.
The hooks below are made of No. 9
wire bent in the shape of books, run
through a hole bored in the bottom
board and another hook bent this way
can be used for pans with handles,
skillets or other useful articles. I find
this shelf to be very useful and it will
save many steps.-Mrs. W. E. Max

The girls, six of them, looked cau
tiously up and down the squalid
little street before venturing forth.
The house they were leaving bore on
a door plate the portentious words,
"Mme. Cecile, Psychologist. Your Fu
ture Foretold. "
"Wasn't it a lark!" cried Catherine
Barr. "I'm terribly anxious to know
who the light-haired Adonis is I am
to meet this summer, and, PeggVi
wasn't it wonderful what she told you
about the pin you got for Easter, and
how you'd lose it and have it returned
by your future husband?"
"Yes," shivered Peggy. "I can't
get over it. While she was describing
it I felt as though her eyes were look
ing clear through me. You see, I
have it on. pinned to my waist."
The crowd separated.
"Come along with me, Lois," begged
Peggy. "I have lo stop in Tukif's to
see about a brass candlestick for
"I can't today, dear! I've got to
dress and go to Graystone's to tea."
Tukif's seemed to be deserted, but
finally an old man appeared, and after
Peggy stated her errand, he retreat

rear of the store from which he had
Peggy, still feeling uncanny from
her recent experience, . had a sensa
tion of unreality among the as
semblage of ancient and oriental cu
rios. She came to an old mirror and
stopped, regarding herself intently.
"You big goose!" she said to the re
flection in the glass, "to believe in
such nonsense as that old faker told
you! Take a long walk before you
go home, and get it till out of your
She drew the pins out of her sailor
hat and started to gather in some o?
the stray wisps of hair.
The street door opened and a man
came in. Looking around hurriedly
for a salesman, he saw nobody at first,
then, spying a girl in a recess pat
ting her hair, he gave a curt order:
"Please tell Mr. Tukif to deliver the
lamp 1 ordered to this address." He
held out a card and Peggy took it
impassively. Of course he thought
her a saleswoman, but what difference
did it make.
The customer turned to leave, but
he hesitated, and iooked deep into the
serious blue eyes. The eyes returned
the look calml. and coolly.
There was no excuse for staying,
so he went, but, passing the chair in
which Peggy had been sitting, he
stopped and picked up something.
Peggy looked at the card and read:
"Mr. Cyrus Harding-Riverside drive."
The old mari returned Just then.
Peggy delivered the card and mes
sage, completed the business upon
which she had come and left the store.
Outside, she slipped her hand under
her jacket to reassure herself that her
new diamond pin was safe. But to
her dismay it was gone.
Then it popped into her head that
the customer who gave her th?1 mes
sage had picked something up and
put it into his pocket.
She hurried out and called a taxi.
At the Riverside drive house, a Jap
anese servant answered her ring. Mr.
Harding had just returned.
She was ushered into a sitting room,
a wonderful combination of black, old
gold and blue.
And then Mr. Harding pulled aside
a portiere and stepped into the room.
He recognized her instantly, but it"
he was surprised he gave no sign.
"How do you do?" he said courte
ously-interrogatively, for her visit
'Good afternoon.'- choked Peggy.
"I've-I've come for the pin you
found," with a little deprecating ges
"Yes. Tho pin you picked up in
He frowned. "I don't seem to un
derstand. I didn't find a pin."
"But you picked up something.
Don't you remember-right in front ot
that teakwood chair!" earnestly.
"Yes. 1 see now. But I didn't know
you wanted it so much or I should
have returned it. I really didn't think
it so very valuable and-I wanted it.
No matter why! I didn't know what
you meant when you spoke of a pin.
I would have given it another name.
Here it is!"
His hand went into his pocket and
he hehi out a tiny tortoise shell comb,
thu mate of one in her hair.
Peggy flushed furiously.
"Is that what you found?"
"Yes. Isn't it what you came for?"
"No! You sec-I-I lost a pin, a
diamond pin today. I don't work in
thc store. You made a mistake. I
was in seeing about a candlestick, and
1 lost my pin. Then I remembered
seeing you find something, and re
calling your address, I came right
away. I am very sorry and I beg your
pardon. Good afternoon."
"But," he intercepted hastily. "I'd
like to help you find your pin! You're
sure it's gone!':
"Why, yes! I think I am," running
an investigating hand over her waist.
Then something dropped to the rug,
and Cyrus Harding'picked it up.
"The pin," cried Peggy with delight.
"What a goose I've been."
"A very charming goose, whose mis
fortune has been my gain."
And ac it turned out the fortune tell
er was right, for Peggy did marry the
man who returned her pin.
