I have made it a tiabit in all ot
my housekeeping experience to count
the linen and silver in every day
use once & week. This is quickly
and easily done, almost at a glance
in the sideboard on Saturday morn'
ing, or when putting away the linen
to see whether one napkin is missing
from your favorite patter, or spoon
or fork, and it is also a check on the
maid, if there is one, who has care
or these; it makes her all the more
Then I found there was another
important "record" which must be
kept and that was a clothes record.
On this card a record was kept, for
instance, of the number of pieces of
our summer clothing. My experience
had been heretofore than when I put
away my summer clothing for the
winter, by spring I had usually for
gotten what I had, so it was very easy
when putting these away to write
them on the card, for instance: "The
combination suits, good; three heavy
night gowns, medium;" and where
stored, whether rn trunk, box or draw
ers; if boxes, they should be number
ed on the outside to correspond with
the card; if trunk or drawer, which
and where located. In doing this we
would know that James only needed
two pairs of new stockings or three
pairs for Elizabeth, or it may be com
binations, dresses, trousers or what
ever wearing apparel the family might
need. It is wonderful what this means
in systematizing for ease in buying.
This card slipped into your bag when
going shopping will indicate Just what
is necessary for the replenishing any
members of the family wardrobe this
While in New York this winter, a
friend from Boston who frequently
went shopping with me said: "I never
saw anyone in my life who bought
things as quickly as you do." "But,"
I said, "I knew just what was want
ed and all about it before leaving
home, and why should spend my
time and the clerk's time talking
I remember in my earlier house
keeping, when my daughter would
thfnk she needed a new dress or waist
in the spring, we would take out all
she had of that particular article and
look them over carefully, and perhaps
a little fixing or a little change nine
times out of ten the new garment
was not necessary at that time,
IJfDKX FOR LIBRARY. TOO.
As we had a library of several hun
dred books, this was Just the system.
I bad long felt the need of listing
my books under their proper heads,
such as poetry, history, fiction, etc.
Then if books were loaned a note
was made on the. back of the card
bearing the title of the book with
name of the borrower and the date.
There was one guide for new books, so
when I heard of a book I desired to
get, bnt could not purchase at once
(which was most always the case),
I made a note of it on the back of
its respective guide card, as we all
know how easy it is to forget the
title of a book or even when someone
gives it to us, we write it on a scrap
of paper and it Is usually lost
I have another for "Personal Busi
ness," which includes my life and
fire insurance, accident policies, char
Within the last two years it seemed
wise to give up much of my house
keeping, so that meant storage of
many things, and an accurate record
of the same on cards as to where they
were, in what condition, whether in
trunk or box and the labels or num
bers to correspond with the card.
I also find in my smaller method
of housekeeping, even more than when
I had greater room in which to spread
out, that I must know exactly whore
things are, and only have Just the
amount-needed, so as not to take up
any unnecessary space.
All this has become very easy and
simple, having been brought about
first through the great need and then
following it in a simple, sensible, prac
ticable, business-like method.
This card indexing makes for great
er freedom, ease and efficiency in the
big business of housekeeping.

Standing on the crest of Eagle's
Nest bluff opposite Oregon, 111., the
statue of Black Hawk, fashioned and
presented .by the great sculptor, Lor
ado Taft, overlooks the most pictur
esque spot in Rock river valley. This
statue was unveiled two years ago,
July 1, 1911. There were present at
that ceremony 500 persons. It was
quite an exclusive affair, there being
poets, painters, sculptors, authors
and multi-millionaires present; but
the great Indian figure was unveiled
and now its impressive beauty be
longs to every beholder. It should
be of special interest to Rock Island
ers, as the statue is dedicated to
Black Hawk. It is not a physical
likeness of the great Sac chief, and
was not designed to be, but it is a
most noble monument to his memory.
At the time of the dedication Mr.
Taft explained how he came to use
the particular pose which he gave to
this Indian statue. Each evening, he
said, he and others of the camp came
to the bluff to look out over the beau-

crossed their arms and "looked some-!
thing like Mr. Napoleon Bonaparte." i
Mr. Taft thought that he and the rest
of the colony had been doing just ;
what many another person in years !
a-gone had done in assuming that '
pose and gradually he came to think j
of a great Indian chief as standing .
on the bluff, his arms across bis !

the one grand scenic vie v of the Rock
The artists' colony to which Mr. i
Taft referred went in 1S9S from a site
on the shores of a pheasant lake in
Indiana which turned out to be ma
laral. They had under consideration
the dells of Wisconsin, but finally
selected Eagle's Nest bluff at Oregon.
Among the names of the gentlemen
who leased the site are Lorado Taft,
Charles Francis Brown and Hamlin
Garland. Their enjoyment of their
summer home there, the charming
company of friends, writers, sculp
tors, musical men and women, archi
tects, naturalists, scientists and oth
ers engaged in interesting occupations
who constantly come and go, and the
extent to which they have made the
striking features of the Rock river
country known, are now matters of
common knowledge One of the resi
dents of the colony has this to say
about their location:
"Our territory is said to contain
13 acres, bnt the whole landscape is
ours to enjoy, particularly the great
panorama of the Rock river valley,
j extending for miles up and down

There is no important exhibition in
Chicago which does not contain from
one to a score of paintings of this
picturesque region. At the foot of
Eagle's Nest bluff lies Margaret Ful
ler island, named in honor of that
distinguished woman of letters, who
visited the locality in 1843, and who
gave the name Eagle's Nest to the
bluff. Here she wrote "Ganymede to
His Eagle." At the foot of the bluff
is a spring which she named Gany
mede spring, and above which a mar
ble tablet has been placed on which
are inscribed the facts of her visit and
the naming of the spring.
