Uses to Which Radcliffe Graduates
Put Their Education.
Light iS thrown on the way girls
put a college education to use nowa
days by an examination recently
made of the records of graduates of
Radcliffe college, the women's institu
tion offiliated with Harvard. Natur
ally it would be expected that young
women trained as they are at Rad
cliffe, where the courses, teachers, ex
aminations and general requirements
for degrees are exactly similiar to
those of the men's big universities,
would go into teaching or other pro
fessional work almost exclusively.
While it is true that a large pro
portion of the graduates still do this,
there is nevertheless a considerabh.
number who take up occupation of a
very different sort. Most prominent
of these, perhaps, are the former
Radcliffe girls who carry on a good
share of the charitable work of great
cities. The successor of Mrs. Re
becca Foster, for many years the
"Tombs angel" in New York, is Miss
Eliot not long ago a student at the
women's college at Cambridge. One
graduate of Radcliffe is head worker
at Hartley House, in New York city;
another holds a similiar position in
the neighborhood settlement carried
on by students and teachers of Pratt
institute, in Brooklyn; a third, who
was graduated in 1895, is assistant
secretary of -the State Charitable
Aid Association of New York, which
has a kind of advisory oversight of
all charitable and penal institutions
on the continent; still another is at
the head of the Friendly Aid House
maintained by All Souls' church in
There are also a few trained nurs
es among Radcliffe graduates, and
some of the girls who have taken up
secretarial work have shown marked
ability. As a rule, commereKal life
does not seem to make a strong ay
peal to these college gractuates. Tn
fact, only one downright business
undertaking appears in r.he records.
That is a partnership between a for
mer Radcliffe' student and a girl
friend from the same town in the
south who started in Boston a labo
ratory kitchen where, as a beginning,
scientific baking was done. This
r start has now developed into two
very successful restaurants in the
New England capital.
Making a Business.
One who has had experience and
thoroughly understands the business
can make the poultry business pro
fitable almost anywhere. One who
has had no experience should be very
careful. The following from the
Southern Agriculturist is very good
A reader who is much interested
in building up a p''tltry farm in the
south says that he has eighty acres
of land located on a main jine of rail
road between two cities of -o,s..o and
40,0oo inhabitants. He says the na
ture of the soil is dead and red, but
that clover will gr' w rankly on it.
A There are a few springs on the hill
side that may he used to advantage.
This man wvants to start into the egg
* business and asks how many incu
bators and how many hundred head
of good pullets he should buy to
He has one of the essential points
of success, for he wants nothing but
pure-bred stock to work with. White
Leghorns are the fowls he wants to
use in this egg business.
He should not start with incuba
tors, but with one incubator and a
pen of *cen or twelve puliets and a
cockerel. His incubator and brooder
can be bought this winter and he can
profitably put in some fime trying to
hatch "store eggs" or those he can
buy up among the farmers near his

n:ove t his farn. On his smali
p.ace he cai iearn how to mate, raise
and select his best fowls. He can
learn how to fight lice and produce
early spring eggs for his incubators.
These and a thousand other th-ings
will keep him so busy while out of
his office that the time will go in a
hurry. If he undertakes too much
before he has had experience, the
chances are that we will hear of his
quitting in disgust. It will take twu
years for him to acquire a good
wcrking knowledge, and in each year
thereafter he will learn twice as
much. Let him read largely, but sift
the chaff from the wheat: stick to the
business. and make it win, if you can.
Ask qu-estions, and study for your
self. Get -o the bottom of the trou
bles you meet, but never let them
twice get you down. Remember that
health and size are the two things to
keep right in the parent stock: then
ills with chicks will not be too hard
to conquer. After getting things go
ing, then begin to hunt the markets.
Try to arrange to supply swell ho
tels and restaurants with your brani
of table eggs. When you prove chat
your eggs are the best the price will
not cut any figure-the demand will
not be easy to fill if the reputation
' Back to the Farm.
Things on the farm are changin,
and we already observe, if we watch
the barometer of social life, that
there is a tendency 'o get back to the
country. Ffteen years ago, for in
stance, less than fifty per cent. of the
population -were moving country
ward: in igoo the statistics show that
seventy per cent. were seeking
homes in rural districts, and it is
likely that the proportion now going
away from the city reaches seventv
five per cent. At last, with Solomon,
they are discovering that "all is vani
ty", in the cities: that friendships are
difficult, that neighbors don't know
the names one of the other, that
noise, dirt, confusion are here and the
struggle to live is at the desperate
stage all 'the time.
The telephone, the trolley line, free
rural mail delivery-these are n'iti
gating the unsocial side of rural life,
and the beauty of nature is doing the
rest. Intelligent men anc. women,
seeking the health of th-eir families.
physical, moral and spiritual. are tak
ing up homes where acres abound,
and are giving to rural life sometnmng
it has lacked before. The practical
farmer finds in these additions to ials
neighborhood circle stimtilus and
cheer, and the ch-ildren of the farm
and of the families from 'the city find
mutual pleasure in association. I'he
movement is an all-round good one.
It marks a new era in rural life ai.
a change of estimable value to those
with courage to pull up stakes and
leave the town. It is one of the most
encouraging signs of the tines.
In the Name of Sport.
May automobile racing or any oth
er sort of machine racing be regard
ed as sport in the true sense? We
doubt it. It is very well that manu
facourers should compete with one
another in demonstrations of the
Speedl and safety of their respectiv'e
machines. But that is not sport.
Tests o.f the excellence oft varius
mechanical inventicins, one atgainst'
the other, can not be placed in the
category of b)aseball, football, horse
racing, rowing, hunting, fishing, ten
nis, golf. skating, nield athletics, etc.
These he sports of 'the kind that
bring the animal-wheth er man or
ho rse or hound-into the sphere of
actual physical prowess. Therein
lies the essence of the Isaak Walton
philosophVy. This thing of risking
the breaking of one's neck in order
to prove the quality of a mechanical
device is as far demoved from sport
dom as one could imagine. In the
old days on The broad Misissippi rw
er there were contests of steamboats.
The queens of rival lines would start
from New Orleans at the same time
with Cairo or some other up-river
city as the finishing poimt. These

English Words Good Enough.
Lady Violet Greville, in the Graphic.
WVhy do people persist in using
French words when there are good
old English words to serve the pur
pose? It is a habit That is growing
daily. For instance, at dinner people
give you "menu" instead of "bill of
fare." though the items are such
English dishes as boiled cod, roast
beef and apple tart; one is accom
modated wit ha serviette instead of
a napkin (an English word, but ori
ginally of French origin), as is the
Scotch word napery used for house
hold linen. When you enter a shop
you are served with corsets instead
of stays, costumes by a costumiere
instead of dresses by a dressmaker;
"blouses" take the place of shirts or
waists, as the Americans have it; and
hose are offered for s7tockings. The
former ward, is however, English. At
the -theatre we have programs instead
of playbills, and matinees in place of
afternoon performances; toques are
adjusted with as much ease as hats,
and we eat in a restaurant as cheer
fully as in a dining-room. There are,
of course, unrranslatable words
which must be used, but our good
old English language is rapidly be
coming a hotch-potch of foreign
words, while telegraphy is doing its
best to oust all tfie crisp and racy
Saxon speech. Whenever possible
let us determine to use an English
instead of a French word, both in li4
erature and conversation.

There are four good stories. One
concerns a girl who would not toler

her own incapacity caused her to see
a great light. Another tells of an
old-fashioned farmer who railed at
the telephone in his son-in-law's

means of saving his life. Then he
changed his tune. There is the ac
count of Zebedee Pelton's extraordi

Cotton buyers here and in fact
throughout the south express the
fear that 'the damaged cotton which
is bound to come unless great care is
taken by the farmers in 'the matter
of storage, will entail a great loss to
the 'hiolders of cotton. Let us im
press upon them to see to it now,
while in time 'to have their cotton
well examined; remove any damage
that may have started and see that it
is properly stored. Otherwise thous
