FAD FOR EXERCISE
ST. PAI I. WOMEN ARE KNTHISI

v»nr«l—Real Tiling for
Bt.Paul women, pronouncedly "clkiuey"
though they are, have one fad In com
and that is the fad of physical
culture. Nine out of ten of the women
one meets nowadays has a certain set
<if exercises, which she assures you she
practices every night and every morning,
and which she feels sure will cure ev
erything from a toothache to a broken
limb. Within the last season only, news
papers have been flooded with beauty
talk;--. "How to Be Young Though Six
ty" "Skipping Rope Exercises for the
Woman of Seventy," and the "The Pattl
Road to Perennial Bloom"—these are al
most painfully familiar captions, and It
is not surprising that the women of St.
Paul have fallen into line.
It has been discovered that there are
exercises that reduce superabundant flesh
and other exercises that will cover bone?
which indecently protrude. So while Mrs.
Tolly may be vigorously rubbing down
a double chin in the privacy of her bou
doir. Miss Polly is very apt to be found
out in the wide hall swinging ten times
to the right and ten times to the left,
while she inhales and exhales rapidly.
And. alas, it Is not improbable that Mr.
Polly is chuckling over his paper down
stairs while he listens to the dull thumps
that come from the region above.
"Tell me," said an inquisitive man the
other <lay. "why so many St. Paul girls
walk backwards up the Belby Hill? Al
most every time I ride up or down the
hill I see a group of girls walking up
backwards. Is it just a new fad?"
i >f course, being a mere man, he didn't
know that walking backwards up a steep
hill is the best exercise in the world to
nive ;i young woman that poise which
fashion nowadays demands that she shall
possess. For the matter of that, he
doesn't know it yet, for the person he
asked refused to betray her own sex. It
is probable that this physical culture fad
will last until it is time to play golf,
tennis and croquet, when golf sticks.

".Modern Education." -
About seventy-five people attended the
meeting of the Webster School union
last evening at the school. The address
of the evening was by Rabbi Rypins,
who spoke on, "Model Education." He
drew comparisons between the school
methods used now and those used In an
cient times, and even in the days of the
)>;ist generation, in this way showing to
especial advantage the advanced methods
vt today in St. Paul.
c. A. Hagen sang a tenor solo, ac
companied on the piano by Airs. Fitz
patrick, and Miss Frances Woodrldge
sang a soprano solo. The latte? was ac- .
companied by Mrs. Oland. The next
meeting, which will be held in May, and
is purely social in its nature, will be
held in the guild rooms of St. John's
church. The last social meeting had to
be omitted on account of no suitable
place to hold it in. Hearing of this, Rev.
Sedgwiek offered the society the use of
the guild room.
Debut of Mr. Jaeger.
John Jaeger made his debut in song re
cital last evening in the studio -of Mrs.
Vina Avery Beekwlth. Mr. Jaeger has
i «.11 a member of the Orpheus Male quar
tette since its organization, but ho has
not been heard often in solo work. His
singing last night was a pleasant sur
prise even to those who have heard him
in quartette work. His voice is of ex
cellent quality, deep and full and well
placed. Its development has barely be
gun, though his programme last night
showed that he has made a very good
beginning in its use. The numbers that
he sung were all well selected, none of
them overtaking the voice or making un
due demands on a style that as yet is
rather boyish. Mr. Jaeger's grasp of the
French language, however, is hardly
strong enough even for a singing voice,
and this marred the couple of French
songs that he sang. His numbers were:
"Orpheus With His Flute" Sullivan
•Slumber Song" Handel
''Absented" .... Ries
"The Slave" Rubinstein
"Cradle Song" Grieg
"Forest Wandering" Grieg
Aria, "Rienzi" Wagner
"Fruhlingsglaube," "Ihr Bild," "Die
Neensonnen," "Die Bose Farfoe"—
, ' —Schubert
• Awakening" d'Hardelot
"The Vow Helmund
O \ lsion Entrancing" Thomas
.Mrs. Richard Price, a pupil of Mr
UecKwlth, recited in a pronounced elocu
tionary style. "Dorklns 1 Night" and "The
Sweet Girl Graduate." Especially was
the last number thoroughly enjoyed by
those who were fortunate enough to be
present last evening. Mrs. Price was
compelled to respond to an encore.

is lost, as it occasionally is for the very
best ever made, it is time to try odd
kinds of bread. Rye bread with dates
and squash rolls are two varieties which
every housewife should make now and
Ffor the rolln reserve some of the
squash cooked for dinner, or use the
canned vegetables. Allow one cup of
squash, one-half level teaspoon of salt,
one cup of milk, one-half yeast cake dis
solved in one-half cup of lukewarm wa

of flour until you see whether it will be
needed. Mix at night and let rise until
morning. Form into rolls, let rise to
double Its size and bake.

SIMS PAID TO SEE ROYALTY
The price of a good place at the cor
onation of Edward I. was a "Q • a coin
equivalent to half a farthing At the
time Edward 11. was crowned the price
was a farthing; at Edward llL's Jorona!
tlon a halfpenny was the popular price
for a good scat to view the procession
Prices went steadily upward, a penny
being tthe price at the next coronation;
then twopence. At the time of Henry
VIIL it was a broat. At the time of
Queen Elizabeth, a tester, or sixpence
was paid by the spendthrift sightseer'
Finally a shilling was the price at the
time of James I. and Charles 1., and half

Among curious advertisements which
appeared in the public prints of 1761
relative^ to the coronation of George 111
is the following: "To be let for the
coronation, a whole house in New
Palace yard, which has a full view of
the champion and procession; with beds
in it, a.nd all other conveniences- to
bring their own servants for their at
tendance." . .. ■ . ,-.-• *
An instance of infant coronation was
that of Matilda, daughter of Henry I
of England, who was asked in marriage
at the age of seven by Henry v em
peror of Germany, a monarch old enough
to be her father. When a year older
she went to Germany; the ceremonies of
the betrothal took place at once, followed
soon after by her coronation at Mayence..

holding the child in his arms while the
archbishop of Cologne placed upon her
brow the imperial diadem of the Caesars.
Another instance of infant coronation
is that of James V. of Scotland, who-,
en the death of his father at Flodden
field, was crowned. It was called the
"mouring" coronation, for on the crown
being held over the baby brow of the
royal infant—he was a year and a half
old—most of the company burst Into
Another mourning coronation was that
of Louis XIII. of France. He was crown
ed in 1615, immediately after the funeral
of his father, and wore a violet colored
serge, without any decoration. All the
princes and lords were in black, only the
heralds appeared in colors.
Mary Queen of the Scots was but nine
months old when she was taken from
her cradle and enveloped in regal robes
and borne in solemn procession from her
nursery in Stirling castle to the church,
where she was publicly recognized .as
sovereign lady of Scotland, and the
isles. The crown was placed on her
brow, the scepter in her tiny hand, which
could not grasp it, and she was girded
with the sword of state. The coronation
oath was repeated for her by a sponsor.
Henry VI. was crowned while still a
child, and opened his first parliament
seated on his mother's lap.

beside them a match holder with red

Talking about realism, how is this in
a parasol handle. The parasol is a pret

es it in color; it is of wood with a tip
of gold at the end, and upon this is
poised what looks to be a green ball
from a distance, but what is seen to be,
upon closer observation, a small green
apple. It is-a regular '•pig-squealer,' as
a country gentleman used to call the
stunted apples growing on the trees upon
a barren New England hillside, which
were sour enough to make a pig squeal.
It would seem as though the only thing,

Tour frou-frou woman, with a love of
the picturesque in dress, devotes her at
tention, both intellectual and financial, to
the muslin boom. Her taste in silk leads
her to the embroidered pongees, her in
terest in wool draws her to satin spotted
veilings, but her heart, and thoughts are
ever with the muslins. Those most lux
urious silk,-; and mohair muslins, the
braided muslins and Pina cloth from
Manila are the newest items on her shop
ping list. An idea of the ever increasing
elaborateness of these transparent gowns
is conveyed by a picture of one of the
latest triumphs of a prominent dress
maker. Two points in this engaging little
toilet must be mentioned; one is that
knot of ribbon on the skirt. It's the new
ribbon for muslins, one of its surfaces
is black, the other is pale green moire.

"1 haven't played a game of poker for

I was famishing for a little game my
