?THE HOME HASIPER.?
A hint for Richmond housewives nnd
Virginia farmers comes from Long
Island in tho fhnpo of nn institution)
called the "Home Hamper." The home
hamper is a first cousin to the full
dinner pal!, and it n wny of cutting
down the liigh cost of living. It puts
tho producer and consumer In Tlireot
connection and enables each to help
The theory Is simply that of having
the farmer express a hamper full of
fresh vegetables nnd fruits about twice
a week to regular city customers. A
wide assortment is made, according to
the season. nnJ a uniform pn-e of $I.S0
is charged for each basket, '.'he amount
' varies with tile time of year and scarc?
ity of produce. Tho contents ore ad?
justed for a family of four persons,
which is the average In the region
where It was invented. The fruit and
vegetables nro hondpaclccd, r.nd when
rerrulrcd.a sjJTOS_.b;itls'-'of water Is given
j them. They are carefully packed to
.present a pleasing appearance in b
package lined with paraflncd paper,
, that keeps the foodstuff fresh nnd clean.
Tho Advantages are obvious. It en?
ables the farmer to count on a regular
market and secure tho advantages re
. suiting from first-class products, skil?
fully prcparod. It cuts out all middle
men"* profits. It provides a market for
j everything grown on the farm through?
out tho year. For the housewife it Is
econom!--nl and convenient. The hamp?
er Is delivered nt the door tn cities,
and she Is spared oil vexatious worry
about marketing and getting palatable
viands. Twice u week her larder If
stocked. Just as if sho had her own gar
den. The ptlce Is much less than tiial
for city snnrkct Muff, nnd the quallt)
immeasurably superior. This kind 6l
co-opcrntion should help t.> settlo ibnnj

: a different sphere, but It Is ? ..
more Important sphere The dlfforerict
is between political gain in

For decades prior to the present con?

Chancellor weighed her down with mil?
itary requirements under t:.- Dreibund
pacts. He let Austria-Hungary over?
reach her and discredit her Inllm nee on
Balkan Issues, and, in the Interest of
Germany, sowed the seeds of y n
and dissension between her and France.
Great Britain manipulated lier aB a
tool In the Italian Abyeslnlnn campaign,
which eventuated oo disastrously for
Italy's urms, and. for roasons of hie
own, Bismarck connived at Great Brit?
ain's policy. The Italian masses had
no heart In eithor the triple alliance
or the Red Sen littoral expedition, and
each incited smoldering popular discon?
tent with the government. Italy all
the while wns n first-class power only
In name, as she had been since her
Now. however, nil Is changed. Not
only ore the people of nil classes en?
thusiastic for the prosecution of the
war for the militant glory that is In It,
but they are displaying the utmost 1
willingness to boar the heavy financial
burdens It entails. They are fast bo
| coming a unit In support of the throne,
not only as respects a fight to the finish,
even If the war has to be carried Into
Turkey in Bnrope, but they are rally- i
Ing politically behind the throno as]
never befoe. Factionalism has become
submerged by patriotism. Internally
the nation was never more consolidated.
That is the universal testimony.
Meanwhile, ns bearing upon outside
relations. Italy hns aggressively assert
cd herself as a first-class power In fact, j
and has forced from her erstwhile
patronising European relatives reeog- !
nitl-on that such she is. In her opera- j
ttons in the Aegean and her threats I
to f.orce the Dardanelles ami Invade
the Turkish mainland, she has dared j
mil defied In n manner thnt has aston?
ished and hns challenged the admira?
tion of the world, and the dare and the
defiance have been passed by In a way
that Is unquestioned admission that
hereafter she must not only tie accepted
b-.it be treated ns a. first-class power.
In short, regardless of all else, and
leaving ultimate material benefits, as
represented In the acquisition of Trip?
oli, A out of the question, already' the
Turko-Italinn War has made a now and
infinitely stronger Italy .at home an 1 a
new. Independent and in many respects
dominating position for her In Europe,
t The keenness with which her every
move is watched in the chancelleries
and their negative acquiescence therein
establishes the latter fact beyond all
.Ni:i:t)s of iticmioND.
Richmond Is growing so fast and her
people are so eager to put their homo
town in the front rank of American
flttes that a hundred ambitious pro?
jects are urged at once. All of these
good things will be achieved in time,
but It Is not without value to point
out what presses for immediate at?
tention. What would the Richmond
"booster" name as the three most vital
Improvements of a public character ^
needed at once? If Just thr.ee could
be settled upon as the next steps to be
taken, and everybody would get bo-!
hind these projects, it would save a
wasting und dissipation of energy and
result in quicker progress.
Without pretending to nny omnls
cienco or supernatural revelation. The
Times-Dispatch Judges thnt the three
Institutions that would do most for
Richmond both at home and abroad
In the next few years nie im nudlto
I Hum, a union station for railroad pns
I Eer.gers und a publlo library. Fur-:
| thermorc, It would venture the opinion
I thnt a public library Is the most vital
need of this community right now.
A library Is fundamental to every?
thing else because It is a source of
constant aspiration and a fountain of
high Ideals upon Which the best ma?
terial results can be built. It would
teach the b<"it means of securing what
is demanded for our progress. The
wisdom of tlio past and the vast store
of practical knowledge that is being
accumulated nil over tiie world every
dny should be available to show what
others have accomplished and to en
aide us to avoid their mistakes. if.
in the end it is the spirit of man that
drives him to do things, surely the
spirit Is best fed by the reading of
j good books. Education, charity, civic
I advancement, science, religion, nrt,
j muslc,?-evory aspect of modern civiliza?
tion, depends upon knowledge. If
j Richmond bases her pro?t| crlty and her
. I life upon knowledge. It will be of a
?: fine and permanent character,

dark horse has any tendenrV towards
an individual coloi t: :..?? ^.\n, he. euro
fully paints the telltale spots with a
coating of Impeccable dun tone.
Of course, thero are dark horses who
nro not really dark. Their ambitions
aro just dark. Thoy themselves nro
rather of tho chameleon tendenoy. Put
them on a pile of mono)', and thoy
assume a gentle, greenish tint, spotted
with gold. Put them on a radical plat?

a convention where the solid Southern
Republicans have control, and they are
a blend of black and tan. Put them in
nomination, and they wrap themselves
in the Iridescent brilliancy of the Star
The be'st trait a dark horse can have
Is that lie Is broken to follow the middle
of the road. He also feeds from the
hand. Tile presidential dark horse Is
a leap in the dark generally. Each side
Is Willing to take a chance. In the hopo
that the sombre envelope may contain
a butterfly after their hearts' desire.
He may turn out to bo a mule for obsti?
nacy or content himself with shedding

broncho you know cannot bo tamed.
TJie must famous dark horse was brand
ed W. J. 15. He bus not yet belied the
j brand. Iiis darkness was only momon

turned on him lie became Incandescent.
; Sine.- that time, though he has passed
through a considerable amount or
gloom, his pristine anonymity of dark
j iiess has never returned. li0 has dark*
designs, nothing more.
In conclusion, let It bo said that a
dark horse often means a dark outlook
for tho Initiators of his sablo fame.
WOMAN'S , IXFM KXIE AT ELEC?
Voting by women has already had
at least one wholesome effect upon
elections. Tho polling njaces have
been moved into locations calculated to
I make for cleaner and more Impartial
balloting. The following statement
fiom tho Woman's Journal shows how
the feminine clement has bettered con?
"At the recent election In Denver in
five precincts the polling places were
located In churches! Where men
alone vote, any vacant store Is con?
sidered suitable; where women voto,
: libraries, schools und churches urc
? used for polling places.
"When tho home-making sex goes
'Into politics, politics tecomes homo
I like and polling places locate them
, selves naturally in places pleasant
and fit for women to go.
"It Is cheaper, too. The city of I.os
Angeles saved ?r>0.000 by using 'public
buildings for voting places at tho llrst
flection nt which women voted."
The total result of this change Is
not only n more refined standard of
conduct among voters and c saving
In money to the city, but also n height?
ened civic consciousness. The use of
libraries nnd schools for public elec
i Hons must Impress upon the partlcl
i liants that they arc really taking part
; in regulating their own affairs. Noth?
ing Is so sadly needed in American
municipal life as the feeling that elec?
tions are conducted by the citizens in
their own Interests nnd not for the
j sake of n political party or a personal
? politician. When a man casts Ills bal
; lot in a school, he reail7.es that his
j vote is a vital matter In deciding the
' Character and cost of education his
? children will receive In return for his
taxc-.. He Is less llkfly to bo In?
fluenced by partisan considerations, and
I more by the rock-bottom facts thnt
he I? responsible for bis own city gov
! ernment. This vivid sense of being
an actual partner In control of his
own home nnd its surroundings Is a
great factor In cducntlng the best
It would be a good thing If all com?
munities took n leaf from the book
j of tho suffrage States. Why should a
i store, a pool-room, or a barbershop
I be used for the high and lofty temple
t of a democratic choice" It Is not good
t business, end It opens loopholes for tho
I entrance of divers strange and sordid
; complications. Voting Is the finest nnd
most dignified expression of modern
lite. It should be conducted In the
I cleanest and most Inspiring surround
' in us.
One fine human note that was sounl
