FOOD FOR A FOUR.Y EAR-OLD. Aa growing children need food to supply the waste going on In their active little bodies, tie- Cities and God's Out-of-Door those things tjiat call them away from the city to give them Joy and pleasure and a new lease of life they are grad ually debarred from enjoying them. There Is In everybody an Inborn yearning for the roadside llowor nnd the beauty of Ood's out-of-doors, but folks must learn that to be able to have them with us we must leave them alone. "Is It not time that our schools think seriously about leaching the city child something about God's out-of-doors? Is it not time that we start semi annual pilgrimages for all the children? Is It not time that we surround our schools with bits of the country for study and appreciation? And Is it not time to secure the remnants of those once great forests for the beauty they give to our country and their value to our civilisation? Here we may commune with nature, camp nnd play under such restrictions that seem necessary to preserve from destruction the shrine we came to, worship." Fair Play for the Foreign-Born Arthur Woods, former police com missioner of New York city, is a born believer In 100 per cent Americanism, hut evidently he does not npprove of strong-arm methods of making the im migrant a full-iledged American. Ho says, in "Fair Play for the Foreign Horn" In the Forum: "These Immigrants have perfectly good civilizations of their own. They have manners nnd customs which are Just as dear to them as ours are to us. They come hero as a rule with a who'Iy friendly feeling -toward this country. They would not have como If they had not had that feeling. They are ready to learn about us. They are eager to learn. They don't like much the Idea, the word, of being Americanized. It looks as If a su perior, patronizing race had set out to show them Its wnyo, on the theory thnt they were tired, and disloyal, and ashamed of their own ways. They resent that attitude. They are proud ot the things that they have got by Inheritance from their ancestors. They are ready to be good Americans, eager to be good Americans; but they would like a little friendliness, a little consideration, a little tact shown in the process "That, It seems to me, Is the way In which American citizenship Is going to succeed or to fall In the trial of assimilating people who come to us from all parts of the earth." Sir Percy Cox and Mesopotamia ment, was political otllcer with the British forces in the Mesopotamlan cam paign that defeated the Turks in the great war and Initiated I lie temporary civil administration, was for years the principal British resident on the Persian gulf, latterly serving ns minister in Teheran, and he negotiated the Anglo-Persian treaty. Porras: New Panama President Don BcIIsarlo Porras, the new presi dent of Panama, has left us to go home and assume the duties of his olllce. On his short visit here he was shown much attention. During his stay at the capital he was entertained by the state department. He was the guest of honor at a garden party giv en by Secretary and Mrs. linker. He was the speciol guest of Secretary Daniels on the presidential yncht May flower. This was to be expected, since our relations with Panama aside from an occasional clash between the police of Pnnama City and the Canal Zone are especially friendly. There nro reasons for this friendliness which Is desirable. One reason Is the fact that (ho Panama canal nnd 'he Canal zone run through the heart of (he Central American republic from ocean to ocpnn and often It is dlfllcult to tell where Pnnama leaves off and the zone begins. Another Is thnt when Panama declared Its Independence from tho United States of Colombia In November of 1003, the movement was not dlB cournged by the United States, to say the least. Jons Jensen, consulting landscape architect of tin West Chicago parks, uutltor of tlio comprehensive plan for tJu roadside planting of the Lincoln highway by tho General Federation of Women's chilis, promoter "of Illinois state parks and president of The Friends of Onr Native Landscape, this summer visited a friend who has a log cabin In the northern woods. He found the big estate barred to camp ers because of their untidy ways and, their carelessness with lire. Driving back to Chicago he met the llrst mes sage of the great city: The vegeta tion decorating the roadside, (lowers and all, trampled down, a debris of waste paper, cans, banar.a skins and other remnants of the woodland feast. "The motor car brings city folks Into the country by the thousands," says this distressed nature-lover, "and through, their total Ignorance or Sir Percy Cox, the new high com missioner sent by the government to Mesopotamia, which is under British mandate, appears to have quite a jolt on Ids hands. Anyway, the British press has much to say of a "critical situation." News stories of the spread of "the war" feature besieged garri sons unrelieved; the killing or capture of British oillcers; communications nnd railways cut; the country around Bagdad dominated by insurgent tribal bands, and administrative oillcers driven from their posts In various dis tricts. Press outcry against a drift ing policy the London Mail espressos by saying, "The government must make up Its mind nbout Mesopotamia and stick to It. It must either go right in or come right out." The appointment of Sir Percy, how ever, Is welcomed by the Times ns evidence of chnnglng policy. He be longs to the Indian political depart cause they are constantly In motion, and to supply building material to build those bodies It is absolutely necessary that every mother should b a v e a u Intelligent knowledge of the, kind of food her child needs. With the world full of literature on the subject there Is no excuse for ignorance. The mother who Is In formed should see to It that her neigh bor knows ns well, for we know to be safe from all tin evils of poor food and ignorance ourselves, we must help other people to be as wise. In many homes the price of milk keeps the poor mother from buying what her children really need. Other foods for a child from Infancy through the school age may be slight ed but milk should be a constant food. Strong bones and teeth depend on calcium; In combination with phos phorus It Is their chief mineral ele ment. Milk Is the most valuable food to supply these compounds. Calcium is also obtained from the outer coats of grains, hence whole wheat, bran foods, oatmeal and corn are all most wholesome and necessary. A generous supply of vegetables and fruit Is also necessary as they furnish Iron In large proportions as well as I other necessnry minerals.

A SURVEY of the styles In tailored clothes, especially In suits, dis closes a divergence of opinion among their designers. It results to the ad vantage of women, giving them a choice of at least three silhouettes, with the assurance that the most be coming one Is Just as much In the mode as the others. There nre suits thnt Ignoro the waistline entirely with straight or flaring box conts, oth ers acknowledge Its location with belts that hardly Interfere with the straight lines of long coats, and still others I hat are shaped In to follow the lines of the natural figure. Quite often a fullness In the skirt of the coat widens tlie hips and apparently diminishes tho size of the waist. And besides these differences there Is considerable latitude in the length of coats and skirts. But In one respect nearly all crea tors of clothes seem to bo fully agreed. Everything Is more or less decorated usually more. The plain, severely tailored suit has almost disappeared, and It would be hard to lind nn undeco rated tailored frock. The two suits which are shown hero Lovely Furbelows of Ribbon EVHHY year we are exhorted to be gin our Christmas shopping early and every year we make ourselves a solemn promise to follow this nerve sparing advice. And now along comes a llock of lovely accessories made of ribbons In anticipation of the holidays. It Is evident that ribbons, which have always contributed gayety and other delightful flavors to apparel, are about to do more than ever before. The new things made cf them Include fa miliar articles In new Interpretations nnd a few luxuries that are novelties. The accessories shown here are select ed because they are practical as well as pretty and every dainty woman takes such satisfaction In their own ership thnt they make perfect gifts, especially as they represent tho work of their donors. Llngerlo' bows of narrow and of wid er untln ribbon made In light tints are provided with little gilt safety pins, sewed lo the back of tho bow, so that It can bo easily taken off and put on, or changed from one gnrmcnt to anoth nre popular types, showing consider able restraint In the matter of deco ration. Ono of those deep, clear blues thnt look so rich In duvetyn was chosen for the suit at tho left, it shows a llttlo definition of the waist line with the skirt portion plaited at the sides and front forming n length ened panel nt the center of tho back. 'Across the sides there are two bnnds of fur. There is a double belt fas tening with large buttons linlshlng tho sleeve. A wide collar of fur may tie brought up about the throat and fas tened. In the suit at the right the coat bangs straight except for a little con linement nt the waist line, where a double belt has an easy task. Tho skirt portion of this coat Is split at the sides (o (be waist lino nnd the sleeves follow this lend, being spilt at the wrist. The small mullleY collar Is made of cloth. Braid and embroidery combined make the handsome motifs that border the coat; they look very rich In the same color as the coat with their sheen of silk. A few bono buttons fasten the cont and collar and two of them finish olT the sleeves. er. Two of these bows appear at tho top of tho group pictured, one of very narrow ribbon and one of ribbon about three Inches wide. Wide and narrow ribbons ,are used on the breakfast cap of silk lace and for making the cam isoles. For these very wide and soft satin ribbons are used, with narrow widths and lace furnishing the trim ming. On tho lace-edged camisole three tiny sachet hags appear suspend ed from bows of narrow ribbons. Two rosettes and nn elastic girdle finish up this smnll collection of furbelows. Flat elastic has satin ribbon shirred to form a frill at each side and sewed over It, with n rosette made of the ribbon, blossoming out nt each side.
