Th llvntutlnii n f the Unlay,
The much discussed question the educa
tion of our girls 1 nlwn)s one of ltul In
terest to .parents. It lies n, ntur to a
mother's heart that she itnds It a subject
for friiiuctit meditation The theme In irlnt
alwnss catcher her eje and she searches
the words th it follow, hoping for new light
nnil guidance In her own experience ntul
duty In that line. The follow Ing extracts
nre from a paper by j:11 P.iull van H)kes,
In the .Midland Magazine, of this month:
What teaching shall we give to the
rlrls who are to bring iii the next gener
ation of Americans? It Is a question of the
highest moment. Upon the answer which
this generation clU's to it depend the wel
fare and happiness of the generations to
come. No nun or woman who has a.
daughter to bring to womanhood, or a son
to bo mated with a )oung woman of the
future, can afTord to treat It lightly. The
greatest factor In the development of a
child Is motive. A boy Is taught from the
beginning tint to be dependent Is unmanl.
livery reputable man has his own way to
make In the wot id, while we allow our girls
to feel that i-omeboily will take care of
them alwii)s llrst the fathi r, then the
husbind. uur expectations are all for the
boss, none for the girls.
We must teach our girls that the greatest
lupplness ami good In this lire Is the result
of usefulness, not adornment of person,
1'ar too many of our little girls are taught
that "to be a little lad)" Is the one desir
able thing. ".My dear, be a little lady,"
and "don t soil jour white apron" fall on
their ears so often that they soon begin to
think of their clothes and how they look
In them, and what others think of them,
and then the sweet naivete of childhood
Is gone and vanity takes Its place or,
worse still, the dear girl, who should early
be taught to realize the great possibilities
of her womanhood, begins to wish she had
been born a boy.
I -would not disparage or make light of
this sort of Instruction to a certain extent.
"Io be u. "idy" Is a most desirable attain
ment, ns a." will concede who recall tint
delightful lee "ire of Buskin: but surely it
ought to be a iisult which lollows all the
other tl. Unlng, not the one aim of a girl's
life. 1 wish that mothers and te.-ii.hcrs
would allow thtlr girls to run and romp
and make a noise. Just as fieely as do
their bojs. It takes all the spirit out of a
girl to be hushed up all the time sup
pressed. She can't think great thoughts
if she is thinking of self.
I wish my little girl to feel that it it far
more disciedltablo to have a second-rate
Idea than It Is to wear a last J ear's hat or
an old-fashioned gown. ...
It is best to teach our girls that every
faculty must be developed to us highest
activity, Just as we do our boys, and to
give our uoys, as xvcu as our gin-, .ikuuwi
edge of the domestic virtues, cleanliness,
order and courtesy.
It Is our creed that occupation Is neces
sary to happiness, bomeone has said that
"happiness cannot be bought by the bottle;
it cannot be put on with any robe or Jew
els. It does not exist in excitement, or
ownership" It comes to each of us with
the use of all our faculties of body and
mind Then why not educate our girls to
be self-supporting, as we do our boys? It
'is p. liumilllatlng fact that the upper
classes, to far as weauh and society go, do
not give their girls so good an education as
thoe who are not Impeded and restrained
by tho current opinion of the times.
On the other side of the water, where
cst.ites descend from one generation to the
net, there is some stability In riches and
the daughters are provided for beyond the
possibility -of failure: but what a delusion
in this land of ours to Say that our daugh.
teis are provided fori -Witness the failures
nil along- tho line. Tho possession of
wealth In America Is ono of the most un
certain things in life. A man rich yester
day Is penniless to-day, and his children,
whose future seemed radiant with tho sun
shire of prosperity, may In a few short
months be sulferlng for the necessaries of
A time may coma In every girl's life when
she will be facing the reality of the ques
tion, "What shall I do to earn money?" Is
It not cruelty, then, to educate our girls In
an aimless way? Why not prepare them
for Just this emergency? ny not be
read for tho proverbial rainy day?
It is not a question of putting all our
girls through college: not one of co-education.
Tho girl must be put in possession of
heiself. Self-control, which is of lnestltn
ablo xalue to girls, ean best be acquired by
tim tlKclnllno of colleero life. The subjects
which they study and the form In which
thev iirA taucht nre not of so much Import
ance as that they be the Judges of their
own neeas, just as uoys aie.
There Is a delusion that, with most men,
ignorance is woman's greatest charm. A
man may not like his wife or his sister to
display more knowledge than he himself
his, but every man docs like Intellectual
sympathy. The most conservative man's
ideal of woman requires above all that she
be charming; that she should please, and
there Is something absurd In the notion
that education will interfere with this
Let us teach our girl, then, that her edu
cation is not thrown away, If she should
choose to quietly settle dowu after grad
uation to bo the guide of a home circle.
She may be a greater benefactor than one
who becomes famous through scientific dis
covery. The study and practical caro of the
in oils and comforts of a homo and the edu
cation of children Is the highest and grand
est opportunity jet afforded to woman.
Tho world muy take care of Itself, but the
home cannot Let the girl grow naturallj-,
as wo do the boy, and give her the bene
lit of the broadening intltience of public
qplrlt and responsibility. Let her hive a
iharo in all these widening circles of duty
In the home, and then we shall sen her

competent to meet unjr demands that may
be made upon her.

Later she studied in water colon with
Jordensen and entered the Art Students'
League, of which eventually she became
a prominent member. While here several
of her water colors were sent to the Hast

Three sea vovages have been made to

she Is not alone, ns there are many Amer

are Just as fond as she of the land of the

At the National Academy of Design there
Is awarded annually J300. called tho Dodgo
prize, which Is given for the best water
color bj a woman. This was awarded at
ono time to Miss McChesney
Last j ear she also competed for tho
prize, but it was won by .Mrs. Sarah C.

tho work from tho studio of each being

still life work procured a second medal.
In 1S9I, at tho National academy, out of
