Splendid Idea Which Affords Chance to Special
ize, Opportunity of Obtaining Better Land
and More Adequate Equipment.
II " Jt'LIA CHANDLER: W1XZ.
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.
Beca s of the to-operative Idea one
weman. or on group of women, can go
In for fnut growing, another for dairy
ing, another for poultr raiting, another
for truck gardening, et cetera, each ac
cording o her own taste and Inclination
Each worker is a shareholder in the
e'ompam. and an Instructor is provided
l.v the organization to give idv lie to the
smalt holders and to teach pupll
Not onl will the project enable women
to follow the special branch of the work
which most apnea's to them, but jffords
thtm the po-si!,ilit of obtaining better
land more efficient rquipnu nt. the ec-n-om
arising from community service.

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

silk floss and a tine needle. The sacque

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.' .-

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.

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

you better take up the matter of that
grouch with him." But he would not
admit that he had any grievance, and

"That I was not good to you Is my
own disagreeable affair: the bitter taste
