Devotee of French Table d'Hote to

on Commanltr Plan Prospective
Members Voted For Early Action.
Upton Sinclair, the author of "The
Jungle," recently brought about in
New York the preliminary organiza
tion of persons who desire to enter a
co-operative residence colony, where
children will be "raised" on a com
munity plan In a building "especially
constructed for the purpose and free
from all the dangers and discomfort
which the little folk encounter In the
homes of their elders," says the New
York Herald. Not all the men and
women who joined were fathers or
mothers. Some were bachelors and
Gay lord Wiltshlro, who, like Mr. Sin
clair, Is a socialist, presided, yet It was
indicated that "we are not planning a
socialistic community of any sort."
Those who M ere interested were large-
' ly persons who were earning their liv
I iug and who believe they can spend
! their incomes to better advantage In
co-operation In a "home colony" and
solve the ''servant problem."

tention of joining the association by

' wealthy. He Instanced Ellis O. Jones,
an elderly retired newspaper propri-
etor of Cleveland, and John B. Leeds
of Philadelphia, a young man who had
"offered to work In the kitchen him
self." What character the colony Is to take
in all details is to be determined dem
ocratically by majority vote. Before
calling the meeting Mr. Sinclair had
about forty-four persous pledged to
the idea, and a canvass of their pre
dilections disclosed what no doubt will
be the final mark, tone and situation
of this experiment settlement. Twenty-seven
questions were propounded.
Mr. Sinclair reported the answers.
"Would you wish your children tak
en care of eo-oieratively?" Out of
twentj--five answers there were twenty-four

to an average arrived at by the speak

sixteen will be content."
"Would you set a maximum mini

"No," and ten answered "Two hun

Mr. Sinclair, "for If we have too large

Men cooks have been tried, the best
that could be Induced to come, and have
been found wanting. They do very
well wlih the substantial foods, but
harvest ftauds cannot live and be happy
on substantial food alone. There comes
a time in the experience of every bar
vest hand when he feels a craving for
pie and when nothing short of a pie
that is a fair replica of the pie his
mother used to make will satisfy him.
Some deficiency in the male, which
science has thus far been unable to ac
count for, causes him to fail when he
tries to make pie. He may be a quick
lunch cook of exceptional skill or he
may be a clubhouse chef with a Paris
Ian dlDloma. but when he reaches that
part of the menu where pie Is expected
he fails utterly.
The harvest hands of Kansas are cry
ing for pie at the present moment, and
the safety of the crops depends upon
the rapidity with which that cry shall
be answered. Advertisements are in
serted in all of the leading newspapers
of all the towns of Kansas and sur
rounding states which offer unparallel
ed inducements to women cooks. And
the chief qualification demanded of
them Is that thoy be capable of making
the rijrht kind of pie. The aerated or
denatured pie of commerce will not do.
The flat pie of the quick lunch counter
will not do. The pies that are wanted
must have interior departments which
It will be a pleasure for the educated
harvest hands to explore.
There must be an average distance
of an inch and a quarter between the
lower and the upper crust, and this
must be filled with some substance cal
culated to chase away that tired feel
ing -which is an almost inevitable ac
companiment of that feeling of honest
contentment which comes with the con
sciousness of a day's work well done.
Little do American consumers of
foodstuffs - realize the important part
which pie plays In the nation's econ
omy. We read much in the crop re
ports of the state of the weather, of the
probabilities of rain and the probabil
ities of drought, but not a word about
the probabilities of pie. And yet 50,000
harvest hands today are meditating
whether to Sly back to civilization! and
pie or to remain at their p;sts of duty
and save the crops.
BENSON AND THE AIRSHIP.
Kunxa Senator Let. the Han Out of
One day shortly after Senator A. W.
Benson's arrival in Washington from
Kansas an airship was seut skimming
over the city, says a Topeka (Kan.)
dispatch. Nearly every senator went
to the balcony to see the machine, but
Senators Benson and Knox remained
In their seats. A paga said to Senator
Benson: "Senator, the airship is going
over. Areu t you going out to see it.'
According to the eastern newspapers.
Senator Benson, feeling that he was
being "strung." sharply retorted, "Do
you take me for a darned fool?"
Senator Benson was in Topeka re
cently and told the real circumstances.
He said: "The page came in, and, ad
dressing both of us, asked if we did
not care to see the airship. Senator
Knox replied dryly, 'No, I see enough
airships in this chamber every day.'
I said nothing, but went on with my
reading. I don't object to the story.
I suppose it's customary to have a
little fun with a new senator."
