TO IMPROVE TENEMENTS.
SEVERAL HEAD WORKERS AT SETTLE
MENTS GIVE SUGGESTIONS VOR
CORRECTING SOME OF
THE EVILS.
[a consideration of the forthcoming tenement law
revision, the members of the Tenement House Com
mission are king to obtain suggestions and ad
vice from those who are especially familiar with
ter.trr.ent house problems. Possibly no class of
women in this city are better informed on the prl
vatlons nnd needs of the dwellers In tenement dis
tricts than the head workers in the various settle
ment*. They are brought into such daily contact
with the poorest classes that they are well equipped
to act as the mouthpiece of the suffering.
A few cf the leading head workers gave some of
thfir views to a reporter of The Tribune yester
day, with Incidental suggestions for reform.
Dr. Jane Robbins, head worker at Normal College
Settlement House, at No. 446 East Seventy-second
st.. said ihat Fhe felt the main evil to be the great
lack cf light, air and a chance to bathe.
"If Mew-York City hadn't been divided up into
these narrow lots there wouldn't be this horrible
difficulty," said Dr. Robbing.
■ea, 'he lots are not of the, proper ■width,
• in need of a law forbidding owners
-• i;p tenement houses on twenty-flve foot
sbo M I remedy the present evil? Well, I
' . that one key to the situation would be to
landlords to employ intelligent house
keepers The housekeeper is the autocrat of the
• ment. and if she keeps the halls and stairways
c.can ami -weil lighted the tenants are inspired to
; their rooms clean and take a pride, In their
' aranee.
The remedy for the future," continued Dr. Rob-
B, 'lies in our rapid transit and bridging. By
US our congested districts will be relieved.
"The young people, as soon as married, go across
riven or well uptown to fctan housekeeping. I
cailed on a young married couple yesterday In
Brooklyn. They get over there an apa-tment -with
Improvements and windows front and back for
-. Formerly the wife had lived on
-st. -with her family, who paid $12 for a
B with only one window.
"I know positively," said Dr. Robbins, "that the
laboring classes would appreciate the bath, and
vould bathe frequently if they could get the op
portunity, but they have not a corner for privacy."
At the Children's Aid School. No. 407 East Sev
enty-third-st v the visiting matron loudly denounced
the laxity of the law that permitted landlords to
r*nt damp cellars as living rooms. She quoted an
incident of a family. Including three small chil
dren, who were paying fa a month for a cellar hav
ing merely a grating at the front for light, and who
■were turned Into the street during a blizzard of
last spring for the non-payment of one month's
rent.
"That," she said, "13 an evil which is a blot on
our community."
Miss Jennie M. Whitelaw. head of the Nurses'
Settlement Branch at No. 312 East Seventy-eighth
st.. stated that in their line of work they were
trying to teach tenement dwellers to know their
own rights and assert them.
"I say to them. 'If your house Is not kept clean
move out. A clean house is no more expensive
than a dirty one, and in this way you show the
landlords that they have got to be more particu
lar to keep their tenants.'
"1 feel." continued Miss Whltelaw, "a crying
need in the enforcement of sanitary regulations
The law of keepi:.g the halls well lighted is rarely
observed."
Mrs. Leight on Williams, of Amity Hall, No. 312
"West Ptfty-fourth-et., was strong in her convic
tions that landlords should be prohibited from
renting basements as living rooms. Not even in
the better class of flathouses should the Janitor be
permitted to live In the basement.
"I think," said Mrs. Leighton, "it would be an
crcellert idea to compel the owner of every tene
ment to post his name somewhere near the en
trance. Then some of our millionaires would be
put on their mettle to keep their property in good
condition They would be ashamed to have the
public know that they sacrificed humanity to
greed."
At the Friendly Aid House. No. 248 East Thirty
fourth-st.. Mrs. J. V. Sinkhowltch was found to
have devised a plan for giving substantial aid to
the Tenement House Commission, but it is not as
yet clearly formulated. She suggests that property
owners should employ a capable woman to act as
a sort of Inspector, who would keep a watchful eye
on the tenements, their occupants and their house
keepers—duties similar to those which Miss Cald
well performs for the Morgan property.
One woman who is earnestly Interested in the
tenement problem, in speaking on the subject of
baths for the cheap tenements said: "To be sure. I
have found in some of the model houses that the
tenants had appropriated the bathtub for a gen
eral receptacle, but that tendency is not confined
to the poorer class, for I know two intelligent
women who support themselves by their pen, and
who u«e their bathtub for a bookcase and their
bathroom ■is a library."
THE EXD SEAT VUIBANCE.
A CORRESPONDENT SUGGESTS SEVERAL.
WAYS OF SUPPRESSING HIM.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: The plan proposed on the woman's page of
Fridays Tribune for a league for the suppression
of the end seat nuisance must appeal strongly to
scores of victims to that stolid incarnation of mod
•shne.es. In "Peer Gynt" we are told of a
vague, shapeless eort of monster, the Boyg, who so
obeiructed the hero's way that, after frequent
stumblings and toe stubbings, he concluded that
only by "going round about" could he elude him.
New. if instead of encountering the Boyg upon the
rwegian hill slopes Peer had stumbled upon
bin wedged into the end of a trolley car seat, he
aye found "going round about" a desperate
■ . on.
The trolley Boyg is a compound of the leech, the
etumbMng block and the barnacle. Most of them
have St all human traits, but in others of this
new gpecles (strictly indigenous to greater New-
Tot's: and rarely seen elsewhere) there is yet some
reminder of an earlier grace of heart. Such I ob
served recently In an end seat man and wife who
were most courteously solicitous over the feeble
ness of a enowy haired octogenarian who was at
tempting to «-nter the seat they obstructed. They
turned sideways, they made themselves as small as
possible, they aided his writhings and etrugglings
with strong hand grasp and encouraging words.
But not for a moment did the wildly chivalrous
thought of moving along and letting the infirm old
man slip easily and unembarrassed Into the place
that was naturally his enter their befogged and
lioygish intellects.
Surely if we at- pt Nordau's doctrine of degen
erates the end s< .c man (and woman) Is a striking
type. His Intellect and heart, by long misuse, have
lost the power to reason and feel upon this one
eubject. If a league be formed for his suppression,
or conversion. I would suggest that one of its ac
tivities be the Issuing of tracts with which his
victims shall be plentifully provided that they may
quietly leave one as they stumble across him in
parsing- in or out.
These tracts might be controversial, anecdotal
or scientific One of the last Port should tersely set
fcrtnsome such axioms as these: That a trollry car
Beat has two ends, equally airy and comfortable;
that the further end naturally appertains to the
fust to enter; that by moving along in proper se
quence the coveted exit end will fall to each as
often, regularly, by fortune, ac it does now irregu
larly by force; that a woman with a heavy child
In her arms cannot attempt acrobatic feats over

who will act as an obstruction and a nuisance, espe
cially to old age, infirmity or women with children

object be kept alive and furthered by the press, in

CHICAGO D. A. R. DIFFER.
THE BANNER CHAPTER OBJECTS TO A
RIVAL— NATIONAL MANAGERS WILL
SETTLE THE QUESTION.
The Chicago Chapter— the "Banner" Chapter— of
the- Daughters of tha American Revolution is agi
tated to the depths of its corporat« soul, and the
body corporate is thrilled with dismay. Blue eyes,
black eyes, brown eyes and gray eyes sparkle with
a rare unanimity of indignation, and soprano and
contralto voices wall a duet in canon. The "why"
is "plain as way to parish church" to the members
of the chapter, but needs elucidation for the un
initiated intellect. It is proposed by a number of
Chicago women to form a new chapter. Hence
this oaicry from the old, which wants to be "the
one, the inexpressive she," so to speak.
The remark "History repeats itself" Is appli
cable here, as the trouble is a repetition of the
New-York affair that convulsed the D. A. R. of
this city a few years ago. The Chicago chapter.
it is said, argues, as did the New-York City chap
ter, that its name necessarily precludes the forma
tion of another chapter in the city; consequently,
that Chicagoans when desiring to become members
of the society must join that chapter, or none local.
This view the would-be founders o^ the contem
plated chapter Oppose, with a large capital O,
claiming, with some show of reason, that neither
trademark nor copyright law gives a right to
monopoly of business or publication, and that the
elder Daughters arrogate more than any law al
lows on any subject.
It is hinted thai the difficulties arise from the
fear of the existing chapter that a new one might
menace the position that It holds as "banner"
chapter through having about eight hundred mem
bers. It is rumored that Mrs. Warren Springer
will be the regent of tho possible chapter, to form
which, tavs report, application for permission has
been made already at the headquarters of the Na
tional society in Washington. The National man
agers took the ground In the case of the New-
Yo:k City chapter that the name conferred no ex
clusive right of organization, but that any body of
women eligible to membership might form a chap
ter In any place when the requisite number was
secured. It is not doubted that they will follow
the precedent they have thus established and grant
the desired permission.
DRAMA DAY AT THE LEAGUE.
MRS. JONES WAS IN CHARGE OP A PRO
GRAMME mt;ch enjoyed by
THE MEMBERS.
Mrs>. W. G. Jones, the veteran actress, was in
charge of "Drama Day" at the Professional Wom
an's League on Monday afternoon, and was truly
proud of the occasion, as she was complimented
on all sides for one of the most enjoyable days of
the year.
Mr;-. Jones prefaced the programme with a reci
tation of "Two Glasses," a good old fashioned
temperance lecture in verse.
Th« second number was a surprise, to most of
the women, being a soprano song from Miss Cora
Tanner, with "Annie Laurie" as an encore. Few
present knew that Miss Tanner had been study
ing with a view to grand opera. Miss Amy
Louise Farnsworth gave a recitation from "Me
dia," Miss Iyouise Valentine was heard In a couple
of banjo solos, and Mrs. Hattie- Nefllln rendered
iple of humorous scenes most cleverly.
Marie Celes:e gave two pleasing ballads, and for
ore sang "The Boy Guested Right the Very
First Time." which so delighted the Leaguers that
she was repeatedly called back for "just another
veree."
The programme closed with the sleep-walking
scene from "Macbeth," with Mrs. W. G. Jones as
Lady Macbeth; Annie Thornton as the gentle
and Mrs. Edwin Brandt as the physician,
lie assemblage was then invited to the re
ception room for refreshments.
Mrs. Frederick G Ross, as hostess, was as
sisted by Mrs. Sol. Smith. Mrs. Herbert
Knowles. Mrs. Mary H. Baneker and Miss Mary
T. Stone. Amcng the women present were Mrs.
A. M. Palmer. Mrs. William C. Richard, Miss Isa
belle EVesson. Miss Rosa Rand, Miss Lavinia
Shannon Miss Stella Kenney. Miss Sara Palmer,
Mrs. Edwin Chllds, Miss Julia Ralph, and Miss
Amelia Summerville.

61 GGESTIONB FOR SALAD MAKING.
It is at this season when the best of appetites
flag with the warm days that salads are the most
welcome. Prim.- :■■, ilrements of the salad are
lightness and crispness. Heavy garnishes are to be
avoided at all times, but particularly in the cum
mer. A rose may be as sweet by any name, but a
saiad is not equally delicious in any dress, the
flavor being of a certainty enhanced by its dainty
appearance.
Only the white leaves of the lettuce should be
used, and these or the cress should be allowed to
ttctnd in ice water for an hour before serving.
The salad dressing should never be put on the let
tuce or cress, or, for that matter, on tho salad
mixture, until just before the salad is wanted at
the table. When it is to be prepared, the green
•alad should be thoroughly dried in a napkin, and
the Ealad dish should be as cold a.-^ p
Nests of lettuce leaves made of four leaves with
the stem ends laid overlapping each other, or a
deft arrangement of cress In the same shape,
placed carefully on a broad, flaring dish and
with the salad mixture, are easily served anl ef
m appearance.
If mayonnaise or boiled dressings are used.
enough should be saved after mixing the Ingredi
o cover the top. Vegetable salads are pretty
decorated with a border of ilnely shredded red
I ejiper or lettuce, or both, Interlaced, or with fine
of the while of boiled eggs. Nasturtium
ms, which have a pleasant, siiicv flavor, are
pretty as decoration and add to the tastlrn
green or red are wanted In the d spinach
green or finely chopped parsley may be used for
the former and powdered dried lobster coral or
beet juice for the latter.
Light handling is an essential In salad making
if a salvy mixture Is to be avoided. Two f.>rks
should be used in mixing the various Ingredients, ;i
tossins;, never a stirring, m< employed.
For the dressing, says an old Spanish proverb,
four persons are needed in the making— a spend
thrift for oil, a miser for vinegar, a wise man for
salt and a madn.an in stir it up. Chaptal, a French
chemist, gives the following advice, which amounts
to much the same thing: "The dressing "f the

NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. WEDNESDAY. JUNE 20, 1000.
WHEN PHILANTHROPY TELLS.
PROFESSOR PEABODY TFIINKS IT IS THE
INDIVIDUAL WORKER WHO IS THE
"SOCIAL DOCTOR.'
The second day's session of the Summer School in
Philanthropic Work opened yesterday morning In
the library of tho United Charities Building, on
Fourth-aye., and was conducted by Philip W.
Ayers, assistant general secretary of the Charity
Organization.
Robert W. De Forest, president of the organiza
tion, extended a short address of welcome. In which
ha dwelt upon the steadily broadening tendencies
of philanthropic work in general, and that of the
Charity Organization in particular.
In the talk of Professor Francis G. Peabody, of
Harvard University, which came next in order, a
keen Interest was expressed. Professor Peabody
spoke on the "Expansion of Charity," and said In
part: "Every one has his own panacea for social
redemption. And when I hear some one offer a
grand solution of the problem, then I move to ad
journ."
The speaker drew a likeness between charity ser
vice and the progress of medical science, and
cautioned his hearers against falling into the mis
take of rushing to be in advance. "So many in all
professions," he said, "seem to feel that the main
thing Is not to be behind, and they forge ahead and
never mind whether It Is toward truth or illusion.
The great thing is to have a willingness to know
how little we know.
"Any help you can give anywhere will count all
along the line, and it is the patient individual care
of each worker that tells. It's all one campaign
and sometimes one may feel like a lonely sentry
out on his beat, but If each one applies a deep and
solemn patience to his personal task, and performs
his function of charity work like a practising
physician, from house to house,, from case to case,
he becomes a social doctor as he goes his way, and
brings what Is better than money— the gift of life
of strength, of healing."
Edward T. r>evine, general secretary of the Char
ity Organization, followed with a sort of advisory
talk upon the line of reading to take up and tha
text books to follow.
"I stand here," he said, "to warn you not to look
for a college course in these few weeks of Instruc
tion, nor to expect too mu,-h on tho scientific side.
You are to learn something of the classification of
the work, and something about its literature. Wo
haven't yet found the proper designation for the
workers. You may be 'wocial doctors' or 'philan
thrope,' as you please, but there is a line to draw
between the dispensing of charity and the immedi
ate relief of distress, and the greatest profit Is de
rived from the public official and the private in
dividual coming together in conference."
Mr. I>vlne closed his talK with a cordial Invita
tion to the students to use the library as freely as
desired, as well as any of the offices of the organi
zation.
To-day at 9 a. m. Dr. Jeffrey R. Brackett will
speak upon "The Treatment of Needy Families in
Their Homes." At 10:30 will follow an explanation
of the United Charities Building, with visits to
some of the offices.
TWELFTH NIGHTS FINAL SOCIAL.
One of the most interesting and successful sea
sons that thf> Twelfth Night Club has enjoyed in the
decade of Its existence was brought to a close
In the social gathering of yesterday afternoon. The
clubroom in the Berkeley Lyceum, in West Forty
fourth-st., was most attractive in pink shaded
lights, with tea table decorations of daisies and
pink water lilies. The usual "one man guest" was
mlfsing.
The guests were received by Mrs. Genevra In
gersoll Nash. Miss Minnie Lewis and Mrs. Herbert
Lincoln Aldrieh. To many members was given a
hearty welcome from a long season "on the road,"
and the occasion was one of cordial exchanges of
greetings and au revolrs.
Among the women present were:
Mies Alice Fischer. Miss Alice E. Ivor.
Mrs. Harcourt Kins. Miss Gertrude Lynch.
Mrs. Ail Inglis. Mrs. A. Hedges.
Mrs. Peter Flint. Miaa Maud Monroe.
Miss R. McCabe. Miss Edna Bradley.
Miss Catherine Coggs-well. Mrs. Grant Stewart.
Miss Eleanor Robson. Mr?. Robert Mantell.
Miss N. B. McFarlane. Miss Maid* Cralgen.
M!fs Lavlnia Shannon. Miss Frances Nathan.
Mrs. Nellie Yale Nelson. Miss Olestine Man.
THE TOOTHSOME SAUERKRAUT.
Sauerkraut makers of Mag.], burg. Germany, nre
exceedingly careful lest the secrets of their trade
escape and the fame of Magdeburg become
dimmed. But, nccording to an authority from the
old town, the process, with some original varia
tions, is about as follows:
Take a number of heads of white cabbage, as
fresh as possible, and cut them into fine, long
shreds. Place in layers in barrels, or kegs, strew
ing salt over each layer, using one-half a pound
of Bait for twenty-flve cabbages. Press the mass
down with clean feet, wooden shoes or a heavy
stamper. Place a cover on the barrel, and upon
this lay a heavy stone. This presses the sauer
kraut mo^e and conserves it better. The sauer
kraut must then be allowed to ferment in a cel
lar for from three to eight days, according to
the temperature of the room. The barrel should
then be tightly closed and kept in a cool place,
preferably In a cellar.
Fan-y grades of sauerkraut are produced t>y
pouring white wine into the barrels ufter they
aro filled. Apples chopped very fine are also some
times mixed with the cabbage.
After the barrel is closed the sauerkraut will
be ready for use in about a week. As soon as
some is "used, the barrel should be covered and a
stone again placed on top.
In preparing and keeping sauerkraut, sunshine
and extremes of heat and cold should be avoided.

WANTS STAMPS.
Adolph Koch, of the Home for Incurables, Chi
cago, 111., asks, through the T. S. S. column, if some
of the members will kindly send him cancelled
stamps. The common l's and 2'a will be as wel
come as those of higher denomination. He asks
that they may be cut from the envelope or paper
without being detached, but not so close as to In
jure the perforated edges of the stamp?. Several
members have written to the office that the stamps
forwarded to them have proved useless because
they were cut too close to the edges.
As several responded to the request for directions
for knitting knee caps, the extra copies have been
distributed to other members. Those furnished by
Miss Clarke, of Connecticut, were sent to Mrs. W.
M. L., who has acknowledged the courtesy in a
cordial letter.
Misfortune seems tr> be a constant visitor at the
home of aT. S. S. member. Mrs. Ella Hallstead.
of Alnaworth, Nob., writes that after all their crops
were destroyed last year by a hailstorm It did not
seem as though hard luck could have much more in
store for them, but now a hurricane has taken off
the roof of their little home, and the ov.ly habita
tion of the family is two leaky rooms. Mrs. Hall
stead is an educated woman herself, and greatly
appreciates all the good reading sent to her children
by T. B S members The clothing forwarded from
the general office has been especially helnfai. Some
cheerful letters will help to rj lieve the tonellneM
and isolation of Mrs. Hallsteads life, and she will
be grateful for such Sunshine attention.
GOOD CHEER WORK.
Mrs. Emily Sewe.ll, of New-Jersey, has paid her
Sunshine dues by many acts of kindness. She has
taken a little orphan girl to bring up and given a
temporary home for five weeks to a man out of
employment. Mrs. Sewell never misses an oppor
tunity to take some poor woman to church in her
carriage, and many a tired or lame woman has
had a ray of brightness dropped into her life b>
being invited to a seat in the carriage and com
fortably helped along her weary way.
