Dr. Walsh Says It Makes Women .Tolerate
Evil Books.
While vindicating the character of Lucrezia
Borgia to an audience of the friends of Mother
M. Alpbonsa. Lathrop's philanthrophy. in Carnegie
Lyceum yesterday. Dr. James J. Walsh warned his
hearers not to mistake changes in manners for
changes in morals.
"Don't forget." he said, "that our English
grandmothers read Fielding and Smollett and kept
Them on their drawing room tables. We can't do
that, but we keep the morning- |*pers on the
breakfast table, and here in New- Vox at least
the press contains stories quite as bad as any
thing in the Decameron.
"When culture reaches the second or third een
•ration tha weeds are pretty sure to begin to crop
up. Then, as Joubert puts it. when men love only
beautiful women and evil books are tolerated
> ■we must have a care. An excess of culture often
makes wemen tolerate evil books. Hero in Xew-
Yoric a very cultured woman was heard to say
that she didn't care what books her daughter
read, but that If they were written, by a woman
•he wanted to read them first herself.
"Culture tends to make women fet>l that they
can «jo anything they like. Then we find out they
can't, and. a reaction sets in."
Dr. Walsh's theme wtL. "Women of the Italian
Renaissance." These wctnen he held up for emu
lation, particularly in respect to the gentle art
of making- beautiful gardens.
"Everything that is good and beautiful in gar
dening we owe to them," he Bald.
"They made their gardens not only for the enjoy
ment of the family and as a setting to the house,
but they made them to fit into the landscape, and
this has made them Immortal. You may visit an
Italian garden at any time of the year, ana find
It lovely. That is because It harmonizes with the
landscape, suits It and utilizes it for a part of its
own effect.
"It would have been a great suock to the Italian
■women to live In a big- American city with Just
the same vista to be seen around every corner.
At a dinner that was given to William Butler
Yeats, the Irish poet, before ho sailed for home,
one of the speakers told how he had visited Havana
fifteen years ago.
" 'The old town -was a delight/ he said. 'Every
corner brought you a picturesque glim-pee. When
I reached the American continent the first place
I saw reminded me of Hoboken. and the further
I journeyed the more every place reminded me of
Hoboken. till at last I got to Hoboken Itself.
Hoboken seemed to represent the American idea
of things. And every place I visited anywhere
trour.d reminded me of Hoboken.
"'The only place that wasn't like Hoboken was
Bait Lake City, and by the time we get through
manipulating the Mormons that will look like
Hoboken, too. The word of it is,' he added. 'I
don't dare to go back to Havana, for the Ameri
cans are there, and although they have brought
the death rate down lower than it ever was before.
I know they are making the old town look like
Hoboken.' "

laborer who asked" her how he could get his son

that the school was a reformatory, but he did know
that he wanted his son to learn farming.

Prominent Persons Interested in Founding
One in New-York.
The ■pfduction of Tola Dorian's play "I.c Hulan,"
with "Le Bonhommo Jadis." at Carnegie Lyceum,
to-night und to-morrow afternoon, by ihe French
Neighbors of Greenwich House, while interesting
in Itself. 1« important from the fact that it is prob
ably the precursor of a. French Settlement in New
Tork. Plans for the settlement are still inchoate,
but a number of prominent persons are Interested
in it. among them Richard Watson Gilder, Hamilton
W. Mabie, Mrs. Poultney Bigelow, the Countess yon
Bcroldingen. Miss Mary I*. Aldrich. Nicholas Mur
ray Butler, John Ta Farge. the Cc.ntesse Ilenry ds
Laugier-Villars, Mrs. Ernest K. Lorlllard, Mrs.
Charles H. Russell. M. Maurice Boufflet de Magny.
M. J. J. JuEserand and others. The interest of
these people has been aroused by a young French
woman. Mile. Girauit. who recently became a resi
dent of Greenwich House, in which Mrs. Vladimir
Slmkhovltch is head worker.
Greenwich House, at No. 46 Jones : st., is in a
region of contrasts. Within three blocks are high
priced apartment houses. Yet in the one short
block of Jones-st. running- between West 4th-st. and
Bleecker-st. dwell fourteen hundred people, and the
region east and south to Washington Square South
ranges close to the lower East Side in the preva
lence of consumption, sure indicator of poor and
crowded quarters. The region is supposed to be
almost wholly Italian, but Mile. Girau'.t, when she
went to the Settlement, found many French families
scattered throughout it. In two houses directly op
posite It fourteen French families were found, and
there were many others on the block, not a member
of any of -which had ever stepped inside the Settle
ment doors. They had an Idea, in the first place,
that the Settlement was Intended for Italians ex
clusively, and. in the second, that it was a charity,
and hence kept themselves aloof.
Mile. Girault's method of introducing herself to
her new neighbors was original. She went to the
door of the little French church, on Washington
Square South, on Sunday morning, as the people
were issuing after the service, and made them a
little speech on the sidewalk, "like a Salvation
Army lady," she said quaintly. She told them she
had come to be a neighbor of theirs, and asked
them if they did not think It would be good fun
to get up a French play together. The word "play"
had a dramatic effect on French ears. More ma
terial than she could use was immediately • forth
coming. She Invited all interested to meet at the
Settlement on an evening of the following week.
The play was cast early in January, and rehears
ing: for the next two months went steadily forward.
And all the time the interest of the participants
and of the French residents of the vicinity steadily
Mile. Girault is a French actress who, under the
name of Astorlaine Montgomerie, played in some of
the earlier productions of the Progressive Stage
Society, notably tho Tola Dorian play produced by
it at its first performance. She i« a personal friend
of Mme. Tola Dorian, the Russian princess, and
widow of the French official, who is devoting her
life to the writing and producing of anti-military
plays. Mile. Girauit Is deeply interested in work
for social betterment and thinks she sees a way
usefully to combine the two things In which she Is
'The French people are overlooked in the Settle
ments of the city, she said to a Tribune repre
sentative. "They do not go to the Settlements or
tako any part in them. This Is unfortunate, both
for them and for the Settlements, for their thrift,
industry and intelligence would make them valuable
material to Incorporate into the work of the Settle
ments. I want to see. first, a French club in every
Settlement in the city. The French people are so
scattered now that each Settlement, excepting pos
flbly those on the lower East Side, would find ma
terial for such a club in its vicinity. We are going
to begin immediately at Greenwich House with a
French club one night a week.
"Then I hope to see dramatic work regularly
established among the French clubs of the Settle
ments. Nothing appeals to the French mind like
a play. In no other way can one so quickly get at
French sensibilities and sentiments, and among no
other people, I bejleve. will en much latent histri
onic talent be found. These plays will be useful In
many ways. In the first place, they will be ex
cellent for brushing up the language, which gets
very rusty among the French in New- York. They
will form the best imaginable channel for the con
veyance of modern thought on social subjects,
militarism, race prejudice, all the subjects which
are agitating the thoughts of social students. Also
they will make the best natural nucleus for social
gatherings. And they will be sure from the first
of an audience of those Americans anxious for op
portunities of hearing the French language.
"This play is given without a definite purpose,
merely for the benefit of the French residents of
the lower West Bid*, In any way that It might be
thought suitable to apply the proceeds. Nothing
definite Is known at this time, but I can pay that I
believe a French Settlement will be founded in
New-York before very long. A suitable house Is
already under consideration. Settlement work has
never i roved a success in Paris. Neither has it In
Germany. It seems to have accomplished great
results only in America and England. I have been
asked by BOOM of those Interested In the subject
in Paris to make a study of the subject In New-
York, with ■ view to discovering Just what it 1*
that makes American Settlement work successful,
and report to them. That was one of my purposes
In coming to Greenwich House. It will be an In
t<»resttng thing if a French settlement can be made
a Fuccess in New-York, when it never haa been In
Paria." » - - _ .

Women Think People Ought Not To Be Paid
for Charity Work.
The auxiliary of the Riverside Day Nursery de
cided yesterday morning, at its monthly meeting,
held at the homo of Mrs. John G. Noble. No. SCH
West 77th-st., that setting a good example to so
ciety is a pretty expensive business, and one which
a struggling charity had beat keep out of. A
euchre party, to raise the additional SUM needed to
make up the sum of $800 which the auxiliary hands
over each year to th« society, v.as under discus
sion, and Mrs. N. Washington Larenden moved
that th« customary prizes be omitted. She did not
know, she said, why people should be paid to do
charity and Mrs. John Caldwell Coleman added that
her Puritan blood would flow more comfortably if
the auxiliary could see its way to setting an ex
ample to the other charities of the city in this par
ticular. She thought it was time for good women
to take a btand against the playins for expensive
prises, which is so commonly resorted to to raise
money for charitable purposes.
All but one ol the members present appeared to
think much the same thing, for th" motion was
carried without further discussion, and with only
one dissenting voice.
But meantime the treasurer, Mrs. Percy L. Klock,
came In. and having heard wnat had been done she
■wan Illed with consternation. As custodian of the
funds of the society bar opinion carried weight,
and the ill starred motion was reconsidered forth
"l' don't like to disagree with Mrs. Coleman,"
said Mrs. Klock. "but if anybody is to set an ex
ample I think we had better leave It to a larger
society, and it ought besides to be done earlier in
the season. People are tired now and you can't
catch them without a bait."
The president. Mrs. Thomas E. Hairienborjh,
called for a rising vote, and, having concluded the
count, she remarked dryly:
"The motion Is lost and prizes will be thankfully
The treasurer went home with an easy mind, but
Mrs. Larcndcn remarked, as she took her de
"I don't see why cultured Christian women whose
home.* are full of pretty things can't take: a ticket
for a charity euchre without being bribed with the
prospect of a prize."
The euchre will be given during the last week in
April at the Hotel St. Andrew.
After the business had been concluded Dr. Robert
J. Wilson, of the disinfection department of the
Board of Health, told the auxiliary how the Voai •?
disinfects houses and how it knot^B that d4fi.;'tc
tion has been accomplished. Dr. Green passed
round some little cards, on each one of which was
a living germ of the kind that turns Roquefort
cheese green. This germ is as hard to kill as any
disease germ. Dr. Wilson says, and therefore the
Health Department knows when It has killed the
germ on this card the other germs in the room in
•which it has been traced have been killed also.
The meeting closed with a piano solo by Mrs.
Karl Feinlger. Among those present were Mrs.
E. B. Pardee, Mrs. David Olyphant Haines. Mrs.
Robert Brewster Stanton, Mrs. O. A. Beck, Mrs.
S. Morris Pent land. Mrs. Julia Eelknap, Miss
Inslee, Misa Annie Eattln, Mrs. William M. K.

cakes in a few minutes can be depended on. Buck
wheat is too heavy a flour to be raised with baking
powders or by any quick method.
After securing a supply of new buckwheat »et
the cakes in the old fashioned way. The best dish
to raise them in is a pitcher or pail of brown
earthenware, with a tin cover fitting tightly.
Put four cupful? oi sifted buckwheat flour and
one scant cupful of Indian' meal in the pitcher
with a table-spoonful of salt. Mix th*> flour to a
batter with throe cupfuls of hot water and one
cupful of milk, making the batter about blood
warm. Beat the batter in the pitcher vigorously,
ad. liner a cupful of liquid yeast or a yeast cake dis
solved in a cupful of lukewarm water. Beat the
cakes until they are a perfectly smooth, warn
batter. Put t«e airtight cover over the pitcher and
set it in somo warm place about 5 o'clock in the
afternoon, where it will not be disturbed until
morning. Tr»>- cokes should be ready for an S
o'clock breakfast. If they are wanted re* an
earlier breakfast set thorn earlier.
The pitcher In which the cakes ere raised should
have a spout with a tin cover fitting tightly over
it, as weil as one' fitting over tho top. If there is
the least danger of th" temperature of the kitchen
becoming very cold before morning wrap heavy
folds of newspaper or a blanket around the cake
pail. In the morning, half an hour before break
fast, have a rcunded teaspoonfoi of the best bak
ing soda ready. Dissolve it in a cup of warm milk
and add this to the batter, and beat it in well; it
will foam up like soda water. - Th*> batter should
be baked as scon as possible after this, If the
hatter is not thin enough ndu more milk.
If these directions are carefully followed and the
materials are Rood, thin recipe cannot fail to give
the most satisfactory results. Xn buckwheat cakes
mixed with water, with | molasses added to make
them brown, are ever so »ood or brown ho evenly
as those which ore mixed with part milk. It Is
not necessary to make fresh batter .raised with
ytiiisl each time. Save any that is left over and
set in a cool place. E. M. B.

NEW ARMY BAYONET— Some of the army offi
cers are Inclined to anticipate service criticism of
the decision of the general staff in favor of a
Krag bayonet, sixteen instead of fourteen Inches
in length. This was the result of a special con
sideration of the subject by a committee of ex
perts selected by General Chaffee, as announced
in these dispatches. The expected criticism may
Le based on thf Increase In the length of the bay
onet as compared with the rod bayonet hitherto
used, or the Krng bayonet as designed originally.
It is felt that possibly the newly adopted bayonet
may be in the way while being carried, and that
its greater weight as compared with the old
Springfield bayonet may be a cause of complaint.
It is" said in reply by the experts who have been
looking Into the subject that tne four inches added
to the bayonet will not in any way interfen- with
the transportation of the weapon, and that it is
not apt to become an impediment to tho soldier
carrying it. Its greater weight Is not material,
since the increase is at the tapering point, the
handle and base of the bayonet being the same as
the bayonet originally designed. The experts
adopted the lengthened bayonet only after much
consideration of the subject and with proper re
gard for the demands apt to be made upon that
article in the Held and In action.
of the Navy has approved of the conditions which
shall obtain in the conduct of the examinations of
candidates for appointment to the naval pay
corps. Hitherto these places have been tilled after
a competitive examination of such candidates as
were designated by the Secretary or the President.
The examination was limited to such persons, not
withstanding the tact that there has always been
on file In the bureau of navigation several hun
dred applications from all sorts of sources. Here
after tho competition will be an open one, it hav
ing been decided, on the recommendation of the
paymaster general of the navy, that all applicants
shall be permitted to appear before the examining
boards, provided they come within the limit of ape
imposed by law. This will furnish all the candi
dates required, to nil the existing- thirty vacancies
in the naval pay corps. Only one candidate was
reported available after an examination of some
twenty candidates held in this city a month ago.
The general examination may be held in New-
York as well as in Washington and Mare Island,
and will probably occur in May.

and marine corps orders have been issued:
