Woman's interest In gardening, and like occupations which she her a chance of working In the open. Is not confined to America alone, as the "lady garden tr" has become a familiar figure In Eng land, where she not only Is her own private gardener, but in many cases fol - Ions this delightful work as a profes sion, earning an adequate salary for her work. The accounts which come to us of the English woman's success Is dairying, poultry raiting, and fruit growing are but a repetition of the stories that are told of American women who take up these same occupations, either because they have a real yearning for work which may be done In the sunshine and fresh air, or because an anaemic condi tion of health cries out for relief from of fice work, but the English woman seems to hate gone a step further this month In whit is termed "a really serious un dirtaking in the way of co-operative farming." started near Hathfleld. An Innovntlon. The co-operative Idea is not a new one, and farming itself dates back to Adam's expulsion from Eden, but there Is s-onicthing of an innovation In co-operative farming for women. The idea, which Is due to Mi's A. M. Emerson, an experienced farmer, seems to me a srlendld one, as it affords the women interested in the project a chance to specialize In the branch of work whicli tl ' imd most congenial to them- i,elvis The enterprise started In Eng Icnd lb incorporated under the title. "The Women Co-operative Farmers, L.td ." the t mpan maintaining an experimental farm which affords .in opportunity for women who desire to launch their en ergies in this tiehl to learn the business.

Eliminates Hired Labor The combination of work which the scheme affords eliminates that vexing problem of hired labor, and simplifies the plan of living, the Idea being an exchange of product! which will do away with that division of effort which Is necessary to the general farmer, aa we In America understand the term. For Instance, the woman who wants to give her entire time to fruit growing can do so. because she can exchange her products with the woman who is spe cializing on poultry raising, and the worn an who attends to the raising of trucks, and so on. In addition to all this these far-seeing women promise themselves growth on a scientific basis until they will be able to use every foot of land at their disposal to advantage. There are a good many American wom en who hate undertaken farming, but they have been women In the main who have had sufficient capital back of them to properly equip a farm and employ labor enough to work It, There are sev eral women in New England who have been successful on this scale, but their svstem excludes the woman of small means, or no means at all. and she is Just as likely as otherwise to have an Inclination to see things grow and ma ture and bear fruit as the result of her personal work. Would Prove Successful Here. The idea of united capital and united labor would prove Just as successful here as in England, would enable the American woman who wants to farm (but wno has not the money to buy ex pensive Implements) not only to follow her inclination, but to hae a better farm and take up Just the branch of the work which most interested her. Just a few weeks ago we had a little talk about the school for horticulture, which was established two years ago at Ambler. Pa., a school which grew out of the American woman's constant demand for a chance to learn how to become market growers, gardeners, fruitgrowers. antl the many other branches included under the word horticulture. Since 1 told my readers of the aims and objects of this school I hae had many eager Inquiries concerning it. all of which only goes to proe that women are dally eeming Into a fuller realization of their possibilities outside of the devitalizing office occupations, and are reaching out eager hands to grasp the opportunities to which their eyes are opening. It Is a splendid thing to see this In- 1 creasing demand of woman in Industrial I life for freer, saner, happier lives than thoe spent In occupations which doubled them up over office desks. And this community arrangement of our English sisters is an Idea which we are sure to promote In this big country of ours where coalitions for the women co-operative farmers are most auspi cious. I . DAINTY GARMENTS FOR THE BABY Embroidery on Infants' Clothes Should Be Simple. It is perfectly natural for women to love to make pretty little garments for cables, cither their own or the child of some dear friend But if she Is fond of needlework, the making of these dainty wrappings will be a positive Joy unto her soul. In these the best materials, the choicest designs, and the finest needle work are blended, for embroidery on in fants' clothing should alwavs le simple in design and very delicately executed. Only tile softest, most delicate color tones are allowable; pale pink, tender blues, and the faintest lavenders are alone in good taste. Either these shades or all-white are seen in Infants' Iavettes, and when either color is chosen It Is ad hered to in the entire outfit. A pretty little sacque of white cali mcre embroidered with pink or blue makes a charming gift for an Infant. Patterns for these "mail garments can be bought for a fevr cents, and after the materia) has been cut out the embrold ery design is stamped around the edge and on the cuffs that finish each little siecve. A lining of soft Japanese! silk should be cct with the cashmere and basted firmly around the edge, so that when the scallops that edge the sacque are worked the lining will be caught in with the outside. Fin l.u with Feather Stltehlnc. Before the embroidery Is started the sacque 11 Joined at the under-arm an4 shoulder Etams. which are finished with feather stitching to keep them fiat. This done, the design on the sacque Is worked after It has 'been padded slightly with soft darning cotton. The sleeves are then made, lined, and the cufTs em broidered. Tho sleeves are sewed In with the seam about an Inch In front of the under-arm seam. Silk tape Is used to bind the armholes. A pretty vine design or one showing very small flowers Is best lo choose for these garments, and they should be worKea in me satin stitch, usine fine silk floss and a tine needle. The sacque is jasieneu ai me necK with a bow of Inch-wide wash ribbon the color of the embroidery silk used. A cape hood Is another very useful garment for the joung baby.

Proper Way to Prepare the Apartment For Its Many Winter Furnishings When the right arartment has been found, it Is advisable to attend to all the preliminary cleaning before any of the furniture is brought In. This will save the lifting and moving about of heavy pieces, besides facilitating the work very materially. Even though wall have all been fresh ly renovated, there is much left to be done. In the first place, the housekeeper should take steps to destroy any vermin that may have tound lodging in me cracks and crevices. If this Is not at tended to at the right time, there Is the likelihood that they will tind a lodging place In the furniture, which makes the task of elimination very much more complicated. An Infallible vermin destroyer is corro sive sublimate. With a one-inch paint brush, all crevices should be gone over. In the closets, especially those for cloth ing, the shelves, if there are any. should be removed If possible. In order to do this thoroughly. Corners should receive particular attention, and If the boards In the flooring have shrunk so that crevices have appeared, these will also requrie at tention. The halls should not be over looked. As the corrosive sublimate does not stain, and destro s both the eggs and the live vermin, the advantages in using It freely will be readily seen. Corrosive sublimate Is a poison, so care must be exercised in Its use. Do not leave t where a child might reach it. If there Is reason to suspect the pres ence of roaches, one of the good roaih pastes should be used, following direc tions carefully. A few traps for mice may also be placed about. The ounce of prevention at this time will be- worth many pounds of cure In the future. If there Is a stationary refrigerator, it should be scrubbed with strong wash in; soda solution, a quantity of which should be poured through its drain pipe. The same applies to the kitchen sink and washtubs. If the woodwork has not been freshly painted, it will be necessary to wash It. The best results are obtained by uslng.hot water into which a little kerosene oil has been ioured. Soaps and scouring powders would be apt to dull the surface. After the surfaces are washed clean. the must bo wiped dry with a clean cloth. Closets should be thoroughly scrubbed with hot water and soap. This should all be done before applying the corrosive sublimate. Next In order are the windows. If shades have been provided they must be removed and wiped with a dry clean cloth, if they are very dusty the cloth will have to 6e changed frequently. To clean the windows and produce a bril liant polish, add a little kerosene oil to ner from edge to edge, two rows of stitching, placed ars'! apart, from a casing through wh-ejBJirrow wash rib bon is run.. This for.W the neck size of the hood and can be adjusted around the baby's throat at will. Then, of course, there is the cashmere or flannel blanket or carriage robe, with Its scalloped edge and embroidered cor ners. This can be lined or unilned. ,as you wish. Petticoats of flannel have their embroidered edge, and all the Jlt tle garments of fine nainsook and cam bric, linen, and lawn have a touch of fine handwork used In their construction. A set of Infant's patterns will suggest many ways of artistic decoration that can be worked by the needlewoman of experience.' .- Made in Various Form to 'Fill a long-felt Want It nils a long-felt want, the drawing room table catch-all. Heretofore the tem porary guest has not known how to dis pose of a faded flower) a ruined score card or any other usless trifle without brutally casting It upon tha floor or sneaklly slid ing it Into a vase, but when he or she catches sight of a frivolous looking open topped receptacle standing empty on the center of the largest table In the room In stinct whispers: "That's a catch-all." The company catch-all Is made In vari ous forms. One of the simplest methods Is to take the lid from the box that the baby's best cap came in. cover Its base an inch high rim with delicate brocade, silk or satin. At the top edge of the rim frill a narrow edging of fine lace and at Its outer side place a frivolous looking rib bon bow a metallic gauze butterfly or a bunch of tarleton flowers. Only be sure to have Its color scheme match that of the room, and don't have It In all-white. as that will make it look as though It should be In the boudoir or the nursery. Wlicel" Catrb-all. "Wheel" catch-alls need not be so wide of circumference as the flat catch-alls, because of the vast difference In the height of the two articles. To make the "wheel" catch-all, cut four circles In pasteboard of four-Inch diameter and cover the outer surface of each one with heavy satin em broidery with an elaborate design In floss or soutache. Then line the four sections with plain. delicately lintel satin, flnlMi the edges on both Mdes with a fancy gimp In mesh' thread or in sllc. and. Anally, having Joined the quartet to form a box with deeply scalloped edges, attach the lower side to a flat square of satin covered pasteboard. Thlt makes a box-like bas ket which should have a high-curving handle of metallic gimp and silver lace fastened at the sides with fancy cabo chons in plated metal and Imitation Jew els A gilded wicker basket of small size, but of ornamental shape, makes a fetching looking drawing-room table catch-all after It has been lined with wadded satin, frill edged with lace and trimmed on the out slde with gauze flowers.

The windows may be rubbed over with a crumpled new-sparer, though this Is not absolutely recesary. This practkally lontludcs whatever work it Is possible to do In the upper part of the room. The floors mav now be polished and tho floor covering put down. In the library or living room there probably will be placed a large rug A padding must be placed beneath it: several thick nesses of newspaper will answer well. This will prolong the life of the rug. protecting it against any unevenness In the floor. It may also be added that moths abominate the odor of printer's Ink. The dining-room should be treated In the same manner. In the bedroom it 1 best to use small rug, as they will require frequent lifting.

SHAFFER A few years ago a young man left college with the usual endowments of youth, optimism, faith In himself ana his associates and not especially looking for happiness or striving for cheer, be cause he took It ail vtry much for granted. But he had not yet been put to the test. Time went along, and. in a small way. things moved to his liking. Pleasant avenues of work opened to him and the good things of life came knocking at his door, without great effort. Bilt the wheel of fortune turned a bit the other way and events moved some what counter to his Interests. First one awakening came, then another, and he was given a real taste of lire as It runs, with Its weal and woe. Conlda't Stand Teat. And he fell under the test. He accepted the bitter with the sweet because he must. But the roughness and the conflict with other wills and other nays than his own tried him and found lilm wanting. He grew quiet, lost his old cheery naii, grudged a word or a look of brightness and when he managed a re luctant smile It was "as if he scorned FEW COOKS MASTER THEIR GAS RANGES Women Are Not Keen on Mechan ical Side of Housekeeping. Few housekeepers or cooks et have mastered all the details of management of the as range, though the results generally obtained with it are perhaps better than with the coal range Often we are too busy doing other things in the kitchen to notice what is happening in the oven. Here is where the cooking schools give their pupils an opportunity I seldom found at home. The girls are txpected to time all processes; to see how long it takes the oven to heat for different purposes, to notice the effects of two much or too little heat, to An that many articles o-ntinuc cooking after the sas is turned off. A.c It would pay any woman using gas for cooking to take time for some such ex perimental work at home. One difficulty In the management ot a gas stove lies In the fact that the pressure and supply of gis are not alwavs uniform. Occa sionally the supply pipe is Insufficient for the size of the range or too many are using the gas at one time. This is fre quently noticed in city apartments be' tween 5 and 7 p. in . when so many din ners are being prepared all over the city, thus testing the full capacity of each stove and of the general supply Ir. some kitchens, where light and heat come from the same pipe, it Is wiser at times to light the room by other means, that the full force of the gas may be given to the cooking of the dinner. Women are not keen on the mechanical side of housekeeping. Tliauffht It Mnsclc. At a lecture on foods and cookery some vears ago, when gas was a tets common fuel, the teacher turned out the light above her head that the full supply of gas might come to the kettle of fat in which she was about to cook cro quettes One spectator turned to her neighbor with a stage whisper, "Why must she frj them In the dark"" There is more than one woman to-day to whom processes of cookery with the gas stove or other agencies seem Invested with magic or under control of the powers ot crrkness. The usual gas range ha these parts, which may In- used together or sepa rately. The top burners, the baking and broiling ovens. By Judicious planning it Is seldom necessarv to use more than two of the upper burners, and one may often do the work of two. The milk for a soup or pudding may be scalded over the kettle where potatoes are boil ing. The kettle made so two can fit over one burner may be helpful, but thoe of three division are less desir able. When a kettle represents the third of a circle it brings a point directly over the hottest part of the flame, and this tends tonnrd inequalities in cooking, if not toward burning, on the kettle. For a family of six or more a good steam conker will save gas enough to pay for its cost inside of a ear. By forethought parts of two dinners may be prepared at once In the cooker. A portable oven. like those provided for kerosene stoves, may be used on the top burner of a gas range. Here potatoes and a Tie or pudding may be baked at one time. Instead of heating the larger oven, which would Ttquirc much more fuel. f'reater Convenience. The older ranges had the baking oven heated by the same burner which pro vided means for broiling. Now they are often separate, which may mean greater convenience, but more gas. Where one burner heats both ovens it is not dltti cult to plan for something, perhap for a future meal, to use the heat accumu lating In the upper oven while broiling belon. A thin roast or thick steak, the bugbears before gis stoves were com mon, will require fuel enough to heat the upper oven to the point of baking a custard or a thin cake The broiler pan provided In the aver age gas range Is a delusion for the small family. It Is too large and clumsy to handle and difficult to wash. It may serve as a rack on w hlch to set a smaller pan, however. A long, narrow tin. whlih holds the required number of chops or sections of fish or beefsteak, not a full porterhouse, may be used under one row of burners and the broiling thus be accomplished twice as well with half the gas. Have the Iron above well heated at first and place any meat a close to the flame as I safe, sear it thoroughly and turn and sear the other side, then move farther away from the flame or turn it low. Thus the heat will penetrate and cook the center without burnings the outside. Or heat will have accumulated In the upper oven and the gas may be turned out and the fish, flesh, or fowl placed In that moderate temperature to finish. Thus the gas stove becomes one Ope of a fireless cooker. his spirit, that' could be raored to smue at anything." Welt most of, hs friends and asso ciates let him drift where he would and they went another way. But there was a woman who thought It a pity- She had fallen under the evil spell of bis grudging smile and one day when he looked through glasses a hit darker and more forbidding than usual and answered her cherry "good morning" with a sorry little grunt pardon the word, but there Is no other a resolution was born, all of a sudden. And I won der if I can put her kindly medicine Into words. His Better Self. 8he very graciously begged his par don, explaining . that she atho jght she had been addressing "Mr. Blank." He looked at her through unsmiling eyes and assured her that he was Mr. Blank. But no, the Mr. Blank of her acquaint ance never carried a grouch (she spared him nothing), he was bright, companion able and ob. he never wore such black, black glasses. The "grouch" turt a bit and he feebly protested that he had no such mental malady. But she was Insistent, told him that her Mr. Blank was very re sourceful, quite a leader, in fact "and you better take up the matter of that grouch with him." But he would not admit that he had any grievance, and she met him with the statement that that was Just the trouble. Just the rea son why he needed to take up his case with Mr. Blank, talk It over seriously, and fight It out with that other person. who was the only one who could sugget a remedy, even make him realize that he needed to be healed. Sermon Reached Home. In the (cnd, she must hav e impressed him that there was another Mr. Blank, his better self, and that it was vitally important to Interview him concerning his new. disfiguring malady, but the only comment he made was to tell her she was a strange woman, and he bad never met her like before. llrr little sermon must have reached home, for when she suggested that per haps he would not care to meet many like her he reflectively said that he was not sure about that. Will It bear fruit? It is pretty early to tell, but the very next day there were hopeful simptoms, and the sickly smile widened a trifle. Perhaps the time may ome to him when he may be ready to say to his self-constituted doctor-friend. Just as George Iiot did when she looked back upon a1 time of peevish, morbid treatment of a oman who was very dear to her: "That I was not good to you Is my own disagreeable affair: the bitter taste of that fact is mine, not yours." Soar Overshadowed sin ret. There may be sermons more elocsuent. more beautiful than hers, but perhap not more telling. For wherever there I a Mr. Blank, who has permitted the sour to overshadow- the sweet, the sul len to dethrone the companionable, and the true, lie sadly needs an Introduction to his old self. He needs some one to shock him Into knowing that he Is hU own worst enemy, that no one can do the healing unless he is willing to have .1 heart-to-heart talk with himself, and. most of ail. that ho- Is the only real suf ferer. Because, while grudging smites. our look, and sharp words do not make an agreeable atmosphere, there Is alwa another atmosphere which friends and associates may seek. And folk verv quickly learn to run away from a bad Mr. Blank who refuses to Interview- his own good shadow. Jet Jewelry Again.
