V Interest J+ J+ to Women. CAUSES OF TRUANCY . * Chief One Is Failure of the School ! x to Interest the Child. ' Wier« are over six hundred thousand children In I tie publio schools of New York, and the record* ! •how only about nine thousand truancy eas^s for the rear ended In July, 1906. Dr. Clarence E. H iHMft associate city superintendent of publio schools, who addressed the women's conference of the Society for Ethical Culture at Its regular meet ' las yesterday afternoon, thinks that this Is not a bad ebowlng, and the number, moreover. Is a de crease of one thousand from the preceding year. This, however, does not represent the total number of truants In the city, for tho reason that the sev enty-ceven attendance officers, who have to cover the entire city, cannot possibly find them all. "There are thousands of policemen covering the same district," eald Dr. Meleney. "and It occurred to me that they might co-operate with the attend ance officers In picking up truants, but the Commis sioner thought It would take up too much of their time. Every little while we find a family in which none of the children have ever been to school, but ■we don't hold the attendance officer responsible for that. It la not his business to go Into homes or Into •tores and factories where children are Illegally employed, except to Investigate cases reported to him by the principals of the schools, the Children's Aid Society, Settlements and similar agencies of the Health Board and the State Labor Bureau." , Dr. Meleney found the "root of truancy" In the I lack of drawing power In the school. Children . like the outdoor air and outdoor activities better ■ than they do the air and activities of the school. Much truancy had been cured and more could bo, , ha said, by the adaptation of education to the needs at the child. "Much truancy." h« said, "Is flue to the habit created by part time classes. Much Is due to physical causes. But more is due to the failure of the school to Interest the child. Truancy has been lessened by the creation of special classes for spe cial cJ&sses of children, and I should like to see ■pedal schools all over the city, where children to ■whom the regular course of ttudy Is not adapted could be educated In subjects that they were able to master. The education In euch schools should be largely industrial." Dr. Meleney mentioned that he had tried to capt ure three truants himself that morning. They said, *rken asked for an explanation of their absence from school, that as Thanksgiving was a holiday they didn't ccc why they shouldn't have the whole Mb DAILY THOUGHT. Give us to wake with smiles, give us to labor trolling; as the sun lightens the world, so may one loving; Kindness make bright this home of our habitation.— Robert 1.,0u1s Stevenson. MOXBY RECEIVED.

GOOD HOUSEKEEPING :: sc£/5 c£/ The December Issue A Ur A THANKSGIVING TEA. Old Fashioned Colonial Dishes To Be Used Effectively — Odd Decorative Schemes. At a Thanksgiving tea to be given to-morrow In (Fashioned Colonial Dishes To Be young Effectively — Odd Decorative Schemes. a Thanksgiving tea to be given to-morrow in attractive apartment of an Ingenious young matron the whole scheme of dining room decora tion, as well as the costumes worn by the hostess and her assistants, will be characteristic of a Colonial Thanksgiving. To begin with, daylight will be excluded from the pretty, mahogany furnished dining room, which will depend for its Illumination on yellow candles In rosy cheeked apples by way of sticks. These lights will be arranged like so many tallow dips around the ' entire room on the plate rail, while hanging between each, from long brass nails, will be bunches of brilliant yellow field corn. On the centre of the cosey round table, with Its cover of snowy damask, will stand a basket fash ioned from a large pumpkin and heaped with gor geous fruit. Bunches of grapes will cluster effeot ively around the high arched handle, and trailing vines will be arranged gracefully about the whole. Then, to complete the Thanksgiving flavor of this pretty ensemble, there is to be a row of yellow can dles In bright apple-sticts around the centrepiece, with a lot of llttla silver and cut glass dishes of bonbons in the form of pumpkins, cranberries and kernels of corn disposed here and there about the table. And the tea? Oh, that will be poured from a lovely old Colonial silver teapot, and there are to be dainty turkey sandwiches to go with It, and Individual ices shaped like fruit and vegetables, and old fashioned pound cake, without frosting, that will be passed in those cakebaskets that have so long been considered old fashioned. As for milady hostess and th£ crowd of pretty girls who are going to assist her, they will coma out in wonderful old full flowered skirts, flchued bodices, powdered hair and patches. The last act In this carefully thought out scheme ■will be tie punch, served hot from a large old silver punchbowl which has its history, as have the silver cups from which the guests will drink their steaming brew before leaving tho dining room. THANKSGIVING DECORATIONS. What shall the prospective Thanksgiving hostess, wearying of the more obvious combinations of turkey, pumpkins, fruits and flowers, turn to for something a bit different? Well, sho might do worse than to arrange a low broad "bow pot," as our great-grandmothers would have called it, of yellow chrysanthemums, placing high in the centre of the shaggy, football neaded blossoms a haughty turkey gobbler in bronze paj ler mache. l<rom a yellow bow tied around his turkeyshlp's legs narrower ribbons would extend to the different places, where the decorative note of Thanksgiving would be still further expressed by the plate cards. One novel plate card is a small and "hand paint i 1" ■■■■■. which fastens with an invisible wire to the wineglass. Some of the inori» attractive Thanksgiving poet cards also make most appropri ate place cards. Paper ramekins, resembling turkeys with out spread wings; decorated paper doilies, and bonbon boxes, characteristic of the harvest, are to be found in styles galore at the shops. Roasted tur keys, "strutting turkeys," natural looking nuts, pumpkins, cranberries and slices of pumpkin pie — everything one can think of that is in any way • suggestive of Thanksgiving can bo found in some style of case or receptacle, or even in chocolate Itself. The variety of favors is as perplexing as it Is interesting-. A novelty is in the form of a nat ural looking peanut, about three inches long. It contains a paper cap and a tiny toy or trinket, tho email opening being tied with narrow ribbon. The bright red snapper, ornamented with a gilt turkey, is another popular form. Small bars of chocolate, on which are perched a turkey and a tiny knife and fork, ara unique. Individual moulds add to the charm of the salads nn.l ices, while sandwiches and cakes become more tempting when shaped fancifully by the use of the llttla cutters that can be bought in any hardware or department store. • TO TALK ON THANKSGIVING.
