(By Robert F. Wilson. Washington. Jan. 25. Wh National Woman Suffrage association ouened headquarters in was aliuut a month ago and annou intention of giving a suffrage and demonstration at inaug time which would rival in interest .ti-ifi iTi"-lp feature of the tug doings, the "cave dwellers" of the capital who had witnessed inaugural parades and processions since we be gan having them indulged themselves in some pardonable laughter. That was a month ago. however. From that day to this the suffrage headquarters has been the busiest place in Washington; and at least the belated inauguration committee has tumbled to work frantically in the fear that the women's demonstration of March 3 will overshadow in inter est any of the following day's events except the actual administering of the oath of office to President Woodrow Wilson. Fair Suffragette in Charge. The women's headquarters was placed in charge of Miss Alice Paul, a Swarthmore college graduate and society girl of Philadelphia. Miss Paul is young, wealthy and preposses sing in appearance, but very, very serious minded, and she has devoted her life to the cause of woman suf frage. She is of a Quaker family, and the style of today permits her to wear fetching gowns in subdued shades and demure poke bonnets which do not at all detract from her appearance. Moreover, she is capable and energetic and has affected an office morale that would de credit to a business system expert. And she has a corps of able assistants. Under this management the plans for the pageant progressed; and as far as they have been announced they indi cate that the inauguration visitors in Washington are to witness a. novel and wonderful spectacle. The pageant is to be the supreme effort of the equal suffrage movement in America. Those planning it realize that this in auguration will bring to Washington not only the leaders but the working rank and file of the political party which may dominate the affairs of the nation for years, and it is proposed to send every viistor back with woman suffrage forever associated with the scenes of the Wilson inauguration. The spectacle will consist of two parts linked to each other and simul- taneously in progress. One part is ; the procession of women which in it- I self will be unlike any parade ever ! given before. The other part will be a series of tableaux, a sort of moral- , ity play in dumb pantomime describ- i ing in fascinating pictures the prog- ! ress of women all the while the pro- ; cession is passing the outdoor stage on which the actresses will play. The broad south porch of the treasury building at the western end of Penn sylvania avenue has been chosen for the stage. Here the procession will turn from the avenue upon Fifteenth street, and the classic Ionic facade of the building will form an enchanting and appropriate setting for the Greek costume of the allegorical characters of the tableaux. Thousands fn T.I ne. The present indications are that 15,000 women will march in the pro cession. There may be more. They will ccme from many parts of the earth. The militant women's party of England will send, a contingent. Women have already started for Washington from Finland, Xew Zea land and Australia countries which have political equality of the sexes. The new republic of China, which also gives women equal voting rights with men, will send a marching corps to Wishington. The nine suffrage states will contribute jubilant regi ments. And from the states where woman suffrage is a present day issue ' will come fighting cohorts flaunting their battle flags. .

General For instance, the intrepid 1 Rosalie Jones, who led her dwindling army from New Yrok to Albany will soon depart from the metropolis with a much more numer ous train of followers to march to Washington to take part in the pro cession. In the procession her band will wear brcrwn sackcloth robes and monks' cowls and carry staves. And they will step to the sedate swing of the "Pilgrims' Chorus" played by the band which will precede them. While Mrs. Gus Ruhlin will be the leader of a light brigade of female cavalry which will ride horseback to Wash ington from New York. The cavalry women will be dressed in khaki. Co-Kds There Too. Then there will be uniformed com panies of college girls, from Rad cliffe, Vassar, Bryn Mawr and Swarthmore, of the east, and co-eds from the west, chanting their college yells as they march. No mean con tingent in the procession will be the ranks of the men's organization for woman suffrage, led by James Lees Laidlaw, the wealthy New York lawyer. One of the latest enlistments received for this part of the proces sion is that of Oswald Garrison Vil lard, editor of the New York Evening Post. These are but some of the features of the procession already arranged for. Of course, there will be bands, many of them The marshaling arrangements for the parade are amonK its most interesting points. Mrs. Richard Cope Burleson, wife of a cavalry lieutenant, and declared to be the most perfect horsewoman in Washington, has been sflected as grand marshal. She will ride a famous hunter and jumper which has taken many a blue ribbon at Madison Square Garden. In attend ance upon her will be two esquires or pages, young Washington society girls Picked for their good looks and riding ability. They will be costumed in green and will carry trumpets from which de pend green banners. And they will be mounted on a pair of milk white Ara bian stallions owned by Mrs. Helen Gardener, the Washington authoress. Green will be the color of the suffrage demonstration. Mrs. Burleson will have 50 aides on foot. They will be dressed in enveloping green capes, but toned at the throat, and wear green caps with bi feathers. There will be nine mounted heralds in the procession. One of them will be iliss Inez Milhol land. of New York, a suffrage worker famed for her beauty and wealth. Songbirds on the Job. The principal characters in the tab leaux will be played by famous ac tresses who have volunteered their services. There will be Greek choruses made up of the highest priced songbirds of the Metropolitan grand opera troupe, headed by Mme. Lillian Nordica, an ardent suffragette. Scattered through the parade will be a score or more of floats on which will be symbolic groups representing victories for women. The action of the tableaux, which will carry the thread of history, will be timed so that each float passes the granite stage at its proper place in the mute story. Some of the groups on the floats will leave the procession at the treasury and be welcomed at the steps by the central characters, thereafter taking part in the action. The final touch to the picture will be the arrival from the skies of a Moissant monoplane piloted by Bernetta Adams Miller, one of the most famous of Amer- nine ton ill- VJfeS3w f7fV j.ErV aTV;. uration. s v I V X KS'NRviSL -V j ? any Ft J TOPE K A DAILY STATE Tuesday Representative Hirr carries his bill through shower of eagle feathers. ican aviatresses. She will come down Pennsylvania avenue high above the treasury building and then volplane to a landing in a cleared spot in the park in front of the stage.

Miss Florence Fleming Noyes, the Greek classic dancer, who will play the role of Liberty will receive the message. BOWSER MISSES IT. But He'll Xcver Admit ' It to Sirs. Bowser. Mr. Bowser sat and smoked and looked at the cat That there was some great problem troubling him, Mrs. Bowser realized, but she kept her nose at the book she was reading. By and by Mr. Bowser got up and walked. Then he sat down with a bang. Then he sighed and coughed. He wanted to be asked what was the mat ter, and, after letting him stew for a while longer, Mrs. Bowser looked up and queried: "Doesn't that new club of yours meet this evening?" "No tomorrow evening." "Who is to deliver the opening ad dress?" "They want me to. Mrs. Bowser, I wish " "Well, what do you wish?" "I wish you were a little different WITH B"00 iWRKtN WHQop 3 ' C:gyy77y- JOURNAL SATURDAY PAST WEEK AS DEPICTED BY WEDNESDAY Senate kicks a Stubbs pet out of the ring. woman." "But how, dear?" "I wish you didn't stand ready to go back on everything I wanted to do." "But I don't. If it's anything fool ish, I tell you of it, but that's what a wife should do. You must admit that you sometimes take rather queer no tions." "There you go, first thing! There isn't a more level headed man in this town, and you know it, but you are always talking about my fads and no tions." "Well, what is it this time? I promise you that I won't make one single criticism." "I understand that an agricultural lecture bureau wants speakers that can address gatherings of farmers in country schoolhouses." "Yes? You think you understand agriculture, do you?" "I certainly do." "Well there's nothing like ' confi dence in one's self. What terms do they offer?" "I don't know what they pay, but it must be as much as $300. What's the matter with my dodging out and making half a dozen lectures this winter; I have a reputation as a pub lie man, haven't I?" "You you have been in the papers often enough," replied Mrs. Bowser as she shut her teeth hard to keep from smiling. 'Well, then. I am a public man with a fine address, and what more can they ask for?" "But about the addresses? I don't remember that you have ever com posed and delivered an agricultural address." "I can do it as easy as rolling eff a log," said Mr. Bowser as his face be gan to clear. "All I want is your en couragement, and here and there a suggestion. I will read what I have written, and you can tell me what you think. We will say that I have taken my place in the grandstand. That's where I will speak from, I suppose. I have been introduced and received an ovation. As the applause dies away I step forward and begin: " 'Fellow patriots, it is needless to say that this is one of the happiest moments of my life. Surrounded by ' " "Please don't get mad," interrupted Mrs. Bowser, "but I don't think you ought to begin that way. That is more of a Fourth of July address. I should put it: 'Mr. President and la dies and gentlemen.' " "I knew you'd find fault the first thing," growled Mr. Bowser. "But I'm not finding fault. Leave the beginning as it is and go ahead. There isn't such a great difference, after all. between a Fourth of July address and an agricultural oration." "Of course there isn't. That'3 what I figured on when I began. I now go on and say: " 'Surrounded by this large and culti vated audience and standing here under the most prolific sun in the world I would not be the man I am if I did not feel my heart swelling with pride. The clash of arms no longer reaches our ears. The battlefields won by our fore fathers ' " "There you seem to run off the track again, said Mrs. Bowser, i 'The clash of arms and battlefields have nothing to do with agricultural matters." "Oh, they haven't, eh? You just wait a minute and don't be so ready to find fault: "The battlefields won by our fore fathers with their valor and blood are shimmering in the sunshine of peace and pumpkins and squashes I see on every hand.

From the field where Daniel Webster shouted for freedom as he pressed on at the head of his troops you have gathered the Early Rose potatoes these mammoth carrots there ' " "Stop, Mr. Bowser! Stop!" "Well, what is it?" "You must certainly change that. I don't want to find fault, but you can't have Paul Jones fighting on land." "And why the devil can't I?" "Because he was a sailor a sea fighter. You have Daniel Webster at the head of his troops, but he was never a soldier. You'd be picked up in a min ute on those things." "By the Lord Harry, woman!" said Mr. Bowser, as he flushed red and white, "but you are telling me that I don't know as much as the. average boy 10 years old." "No, I am not. I'm simply telling you that you have got things mixed up. You know better, of course, but you are sometimes absent-minded." "Never in this world do I get things mixed up! Never in this world am I absent-minded. Mrs. Bowser, you have insulted me!' There was a bit of doubt in his tones as he picked up his manuscript notes aeain. flourished his arm and went on " 'When Robert Fulton arose in his place in congress and declared that agriculture was the bulwark of liberty. men smiled at him, but you have only to look around you today to see what a truism he gave us. Look at those threshing machines, those steam boil ers, those windmills, those reapers and mowers and then turn " "Mr. Bowser, will you let me say a word?" interrupted Mrs. Bowser. "What is it now?" "You are not quite right about two things in that paragraph. Robert Ful ton never arose in his seat in congress." "But I say he did!" - "I don't see how he could, as he was never a member of that body. You probably meant to say Calhoun or Clay." "I probably didn't mean to say any thing of the kind! That is the third or fourth time you have flung insults into my face, and I am done!" "But you must not make such mis takes. You speak of agriculture being the bulwark of liberty, and then you go on to mention nothing but manu factures. If you make such slips as those before a crowd you will be al most hooted at. Now go on. We will fill in new names later on." "Madame, there will be no going on and no filling!" said Mr. Bowser with great dignity as he came out of the grandstand. "But why?" "Because I am no fool. I may be baldheaded, but I know when I am in sulted." "You are a strr.nge man. I was merely telling you where you were wrong about names and things." "You telling me where I was wrong! Now listen to me. In half an hour I will prove that you don't know your A, B, C's. I'll show you that I am right and you are wrong in every criticism you have made." "Well, let it go that I am wrong. Can't we go riding on -the car this ev ening?" "Don't attempt to dodge the issue, madam. You have made certain state ments. I go to disprove them. When they have been disproved, which they certainly will be. I shall suggest that our respective lawyers have a little talk!" With that he made her a stiff bow and walked down the hall and outdoors. He had been very decided in his talk, but at the same time he doubted him self. He didn't like to go to his family druggist, but when he failed to find the butcher or the plumber in, he sauntered into the drug store with a remark about the weather and finally got around to say; "Say, doc, just who and what was Daniel Webster? I may have got him mixed up with someone else." "Why, Daniel was a statesman," was J 1913 - FRJXJAX Masonic visitors enjoy a banquet at the temple. the reply. "And who was Paul Jones?" "One of the greatest sea fighters American ever had." "And who who" continued Mr. Bowser, but the ' druggist interrupted him with: "By thunder. Bowser, but what do you want to keep this up so long for"; Your wife knows more in a minute than you do in a day, and why not realize it?" "Sir, do you mean to insult me!" "Oh, bosh!" "Sir, I can lick you in two minutes." "Nonsense! Go home and be good!" The druggist refused to go out for a scrap, and Mr. Bowser left the place with rage boiling in his heart. He was looking around for something to de stroy when a belated fakir yelled "Um brellas to mend!" at him from across the street. With a blood-curdling wnoop Mr. Bowser took his trail, and as the two disappeared down the street in a whirl a policeman came along and mused to himself: "Those looked like Bowser's coattails, and I'll bet he's been having another row with his wife. Why can't he cud dle down and behave himself?" (Copy right, 1913, by Associated Literary Press.) DOMESTIC SCIENCE NOTES. Ninety per cent of the housekeep ers in this country are without ser vants in the home. Consequently not only the actual work in the home is entirely on their shoulders, but in catering to the family every week they are called upon to solve a compli cated economic problem. If the housekeeper buys choice steals, prime roasts, broilers and fine hams, she pays a high price tor the raw food. If she buys the cheaper cuts of beef, mutton, old fowl' and hams which require mpre attention in preparation and cookery, she pavs a high price in time, labor and fuel in preparing them for the table. Many prefer to pay more in cash and econ omize in cooking. They would much rather be releas ed from long, slow cooking required to make the cheaper meats palatable, and spend their money on more costly and more easily cooked foods. There are others (and this is particularly true of young, inexperienced house keepers), who think that a steak cost ing 25 cents a pound must be better food than a stew made from meat at 10 or 12 cents a pound. For several years my special prob lem to solve has been to make house keeping less laborious, more economic and more efficient, and I am satisfied that the fireless co'oker covers the three points just mentioned in cook ing the less expensive cuts of meats. Housekeepers all their lives have shown a weakness in buying utensils, trying them once, and if not perfectly successful the first time, why, they were put away on the pantry shelf for years perhaps and finally thrown or given away. There is every opportunity of find ing out about all the fireless cookers in the market, and it should be made of the best materials one can atford to buy, utensils aluminum, tight and no steam escaping, no pads or cush ions, tne interior lined with a non rustable material. If radiators are used they should be of a good galvan ized metal or a good quality of soap stone. A cooker comes in one, two or three compartments, as suits the re quirements of the purchaser. Again I urge every housekeeper to buy a good fireless cooker and use it for many things besides cooking meat. Navel, brisket, shoulder, cold or round. Material Meat, 6 lbs.; bay leaf. 1; whole pepper, 1 ; cold water, 3 pints. TTtensils Fireless cooker. Directions At night or early in the morning (the time depending upon when the meat is required), open the cooker and take out a kettle and heat the two radiators on the fire until they respond to the wet finger test used in testing a hot iron. Wrhile they are heating wipe the meat with a damp cloth and place it in the kettle with the remaining ingredients. Do not have the meat more than half cov ered w-ith water. Heat slowly until boiling and boil, tightly covered, five minutes. Radiators and meat should now be ready for the cooker, putting one radiator in the bottom, the kettle on top and another radiator on top of the kettle. Close the cooker and lock and let cook over night or all day, when the meat and stock are ready for use. The meat may have lost an ounce or two in weight, but none in nutritive value, j as all loss ot weight is recovered in the soup stock, which is set aside to cool and remove the fat. Again when this meat is partly done it can be re heated and potatoes and vegetables added, boiled five minutes a"nd set again in the cooker to finish, then meat and vegetables served, the stock strained and cooled for soup another day. The same principle will apply for cooking fowls, ham. cornbeef, tongue, or any of the meats which are im nroved by long, slow cooking. As a chef once said to me when T took . him some cornbeef to try. which I had cooked in the fireless cooker: "I have cooked .for seventeen years, and T have never cooked, nor eaten such nerfect cornbeef." The recine given T particularly recommend where the tock is desired and the cooked meat used as all cooked meats are reheated and served. Every dish, whether a stew or otbf "made dish," or perfectly plain, will 15 PARSONS &AXGRDAX Legislators remain to clear up an overflow of bills. , be more nutritive than the most cost ly steaks and roasts, and will also be of superior flavor, because all meats, when cooked as directed, lose nothing in food value or flavor.

A salad is always wholesomo and there is no excuse for a city resident not having a salad with every dinner, for our city markets supply green stuff the year round. Most any left-over vegetables can be mixed with a little finely cut celery, served on lettuce leaves with French dressing. A good way to have the French dressing is to make and put it in the cruet ami just before using shake well so the oil and vinegar wijl be well mixed. In Europe salads have had a prominent place on the menus for -sres; and have been valued as they deserve. If I could not afford both salad and dessert, I would do without the dessert, and have a whole some salad. The following menus are excellent for this time of year: BREAKFAST Oatmeal with Raisins.

Drain put into saucepan, cover with boiling w ter and boll two Lours slowly, or until tender. Remove half and set aside for the salad for tomorrow. To the other half (there should be about IVi quarts water over beans) add the bacon and onion, whl-h has been fried until light brown; boil 15 minutes; add tha salt, pepper, parsley and thyme and boil mree minutes. This is very nice when the beans are rubbed through a strainer, thereby re moving all hulls. Kidney Bean Salad. Mix one cup kidney beans and one cup finely cut celery; serve on lettuce, with French dressing, which has been flavored with onion juice. Tripe and Oysters. 1 pound boiled tripe. -5 oysters. 1 tablespoon butter. 1 tablespoon flour. lA teaspoonful white pepper. Dash paprika. 1 tablespoon sherry wine or one-half teaspoon onion juice or one-fourth tea spoon nutmeg. Wash and cut tripe Into inch pieces, put into saucepan, cover with boiling water, add one tablespoon cut onion and boil one hour. Drain and add to cream sauce. Put oysters into shallow pan, cook until gills curl, drain and add to tripe and sauce. Sauce: Put butter into saucepan over fire; when melted, remove, add flour, mix well and return to fire, adding the cold milk slowly, stir until smooth and creamy; add salt, pepper, paprika and sherry wine, onion juice or grated nut meg; boil three minutes. Spinach and Bacon. Wash and clean one-fourth peck spin acht wash until all grit has been re moved. Put Into saucepan with one-half cup boiling water, place over fire and bring to boiling point quickly; boil until tender, turning quite often. Pour into colander and press out all the water. Put into tureen and cover with the bacon. Bacon: Cut one-fourth pound bacon very thin, put into hot frypan and fry until crisp. Place over top of spinach and pour over the drippings. This makes a very pleasant change from the boiled spinach and bacon. You can garnisb with two hard-boiled eggs if desired.
