By N. W. Harllee. The introduction of domestic art In the public schools of this city was an inervation as well as an inspi ration. There art as it is being taught in the schools of the country, brings new life and new blood to the girls whose visions must be far reaching and comprehends that which awaits them in their relation with the home, with society and the . common com forts that will prevail in them. Many porsons have thought that these es sentials should be taught in the home, and the state also thinks so, and gives the home or rather permits the home to do bo, and in ordor that the child shall not be neglected, the strong hand of the state for its own protection, takes upon itself the high duty of training the girls along these es sentials. In fact, in many instances, those In the homes are not prepared to instruct their children in this art that lies at the very thresthole of the home. Hence, the state takes charge to aid the weak home that there may be no doubt of the benign effect and the skill that the child should have a start in the fierce contest of life. The education of our girls is of the very highest importance. The home is the school of life, out of it comes the greater school, the public school, the uni versity of the people, the college and the basis of all powerful government. monarches, empire and dominions, The home Is the nlt of the Na tion," "hot" the government, not the army, not the navy but the home, back of ail. But queen Victoria, England's great sovereign did not wait for the state to train her daughters in the heiress with crowned heads, and with jewelled hands, destined to rule the mighty empire and domin ion of England, Through the eager ness and the desire of a queen moth er, were trained in the domestic art and domestic science. Their royal hands scintilatlng with rubles, were trained to kneed the dough in a com mon tray, then place It for baking and arrange the degrees of the cal ories of heat ,and measure the time for baking. Why should a sovereign heiress to the throne of England be required by ber mother to do these most common place and yet the most essentials affairs? What was the purpose? Neither was this all, for the Jew elled fingers, bearing the sparkling diamond, were required to embrace the scissors, to twirl the flutters, to adjust the thimble, to be pre cise with the delineator, to manipu late the sewing machine and to be Five Men Executed But Not A Coward in American Army. Death is the penalty for many of fenses In war. Into one office in the judge advocate general's quartets down at Washington every day come records of joue offense after another; penalty, death. A hundred or more a mouth. They call that office "death house;" it is the Buprei , a court of the army. MaJ. W. C. Rigby of the judge Ad vocate general's department and one of th "daath house" quartet, says in the Chicago News: "Because most of thti cases we get involve the life or death of the accused, w are always careful to read every line of the evidence, every word of the argument for or against," he said. "Almost as fewsomeare these of the commissioned officers punished with dishonorable discharge from the service. It's a pretty drastic pun ishment.' Better might 'death house' have imposed the death penalty it self than dishonorable discharge in the cases of some men. It means a ruined life, sometimes. But jus tice muut be severe and quick in war. There must be discipline, for the fate of the country might hang at some moment upon the discipline of its army; "People who really know, how hor rible war la know how atrocious are some of the offenses against women and children by an advancing army. Austria, for Instance, I saw Just the ojher day, roported the execution of 11,000 of Its own soldiers. How many do you suppose we had to exe tute among our troops in France? L'actly five. The world isn't per fect yet or we c ldn't have had those five. Only thre of thorn were cases in which onion were the victims, end those .es were rush ed to conclusion.

It must have been for some extraordinary purpose, far reaching and exemplary rather than the need for the heiress to England's imperial throne. What re ligion was it? .These were the daugh-i ters of queen Victoria, for she was a mother as well as a queen, and to be a mother 1b more than being a queen, for a mother, whether a queen on a throne, or a mother without a throne, or a dominion, Is the queen of all queens, for the is heaven's highest and best gift to earth. Did England's great . queen fore see the exacting demand that would be made upon the women of her kingdom in the coming crisis of the world's supremacy for human free dom? . Did her swepp of vision take in all times? Was it possible that she Imagine that her daughters with royal blood coursing through their veins would be required to .earn money and to make a living through this course of training? No, a thou sand times no. Then what? Who can tell the inervertlble and final mishap of man? Shadows do not always trail behind, but they by misfortune reverse themselves and cast their trembling forms with hi eousness before us unexpectedly in the noontide of life. Kepler said that "Great God," I seem to think Thy thoughts, so It seems that Miss Minnie Mae Smith the preceptress of the Domestic Art department of the Negro High School of the city of Dallas, thinks the thoughts of oueen Victoria of En. gland In praparlnlJT introduce this great art into this Institution. For she has taken the time to prepare herself by studying during the va cations in different colleges. She enters Bishop and applies herself diligently to the subjects pertaining to the art that the girls of the race so much need to know both from a theoretical and practical viewpoint. While teaching in the public schools of Cleburne, she concluded to make the step of reasearch work in the do mestic art, and that she -might be fully prepared, she takes a special course Jn the University of Chicago, and while In this Institution applies herself "with assiduity, and passes the required test. Miss Smith has been a diligent student and pain staking not only in the colleges away from home, but bas applied her self In the summer normals of this state, discussing with the teachers and faculties wherever she has at tended, when she was not attending some summer school In the east or west.

Paris, Dec. 11. (By mail). "Am erican mothers need have no fears of the dangers and pitfalls lurking to ensnare their sons in Paris," said Brig. Gen. W. W. Harts, commanding effflcer of the Parity area for the United States army. The French capital Is as moral and safe for a young man - as any community In the United States. In fact, our records and statistics show that there is less danger than in the average American connununlty. I have been highly complimented on the the excellent behavior of Ameri can troops In Paris by high French officials and I can state that our men merit the compliment. The cases of Intoxication, dis orderly conduct and contraction of venereal diseases among members of the American expeditionary forces stationed in or passing through Paris are fewer, in proportion, than in camps or army posts and other cen ters in the states. 'There are always between 25,- 000 and 30,000 American troops in Paris and the number Is increasing steadily since the cessation of hos tilities. But the men are well be haved, quiet, obey orders and regu lations laid down for their guidance and have caused absolutely no trouble for the French municipal force. Our own police the M. P'b have little more to do than to act as guides and Information officers." General Harts asserted that he was heartily in favor of permitting' as many officers as possible to visit French capital before they return to the United States and said that there is no doubt but that they will continue to behave themselves as well as they have in the past . "The impression has been too pre valent in the United States," said General Harts,- "that Parte the plea sure city of the world, . is composed entirely of Mont Matre resorts and inhabited by questionable women. As a matter of fact, that is entirely er roneous and all those American troops who have been In Paris are going to do a whole lot toward dis pelling that idea when they return to their homes in America. Investigation shows that the great preponderance of American officers and men having a day or so to pass in Paris while In transit invariably visit such well know places as Notre Damo, the Louvre, the Madeleine, the Sacre Coeur, the Eiffel tower. the Bols de Botilgne, the Bastlle mon ument, the Tullerles gardens and the Invalides. "They are temperate in their hablis and this situation Is largely eased through the lack of whisky over here, and a glass of beer, with a little wine at meals, is all they drink as a general thing." General Harts has a highly organ ized force of M. P.'a who were sta tioned all over the city, day and night. They are stationed at nil way stations and at intersections of principal streets.

The Division suffered a to tal of 1478 casualties. "Among the killed were six officers, and one offi cer died from wounds received in action, while 31 enlisted men died from wounds. 40 enlisted men died from diseases; 28 enlisted men were listed as "missing," 16 officers and 643 enlisted men were wounded; and 39 officers and 661 enlisted men were gassed. The division's number of ga.n sed is unusually large. A reason is. perhaps, that the Colored soldiers in the front line trenches of this . division were unusally daring in making raids Into the enemy's ter ritory. Considering, especially, the des perate advance the Colored soldiers of this division made out from Pont- a-Mousson the morning of November 10th, through valley swept by t'm heavy German guns of Metz, und nesta of German macl.ne guns, the casualty is slight; for on the morn ing I saw them make the advance, and knowing the dangerous ground they were to cover to make their objective, it appeared miraculous that the division was not wiped out. The casualty in that advance was, per haps, as light as It was because of the rapidity with which their olne advanced.
