THE WASHINGTON HERALft. FRIDAY; AUGUST 27. 1915: ) WOMAN'S HERALD Devoted to the Household, the I'aabions anfl the Activllisa, of Women. MART MARSHALL. Editor. DAILY DEPARTMENT OP THE WASHINGTON HERALD. Correspondence is tnrlted. Address U communication to the Woman' Editor of The Washington Herald, FBIDAT. AUGUST 5. MIS. BEAUTIFUL KITCHENS. The American way is to hae two distinct classes of household articles the useful and the beautiful. The useful things, like broms and dust pans, double boilers, mixing bowls and kitchen tables are carefully kept out of sight of strangers in the kitchen, the pantry, the attic or the cellar. As a rule they are hideous. Almost never do they possess color or beauty of line or shape, unless, as in the case of a bowl now and then, quite by accident. The other things, lounge cushions, table spreads, chan deliers and vases are usually built with so great a straining after the purely ornate that their usefulness is overlooked. Of late years, however, there has been a decided improvement in the way of making ornamental things also useful. The lounge cushion with "hand-painted" roses on a white satin coer, that no one could think of using, the vase that would not hold water, and the chandeliers that did not gie a good light arc fast passing into the things that have been. The arts and crafts movement, or vhatcer you choose to call it, that has demanded a greater sincer ity in the construction of interior furnishings is largely responsible for this. But the other defect of the Ameri can way has so far been neglected. We have made our "parlor" furniture useful, but have we made our kitchen furniture beautiful? In Japan the poorest folk have kitchen things that arc beautiful. Their iron pots are exquisitely shaped and their mixing bowls have colors that would charm the eye of an ar tist. Yes, and if wc got hold of those pots and pans and bonis we'd put them on the parlor mantel and use the hideous American sort in the ' kitchen, even if we had no maid and j hau to spend much more time ocr the pots and pans than ever we did in the parlor. But the change will come, we are told. It is all part of our artistic de velopment that has only just begun. There will be a time when a frying pan will be a joy to behold and when one looks as carefully to the color Woodward & Lothrop New York Washington Paris Our First Special Value in New Fall Silk Petticoats, $2.75 Each.

Modish Misses' Frocks and public-spirited persons were re solved to suppress," says an article entitled "The Condescending Man and the Obstructive Woman," in a recent number of Harper's Weekly. And further "that Mrs. Arthur M. Dodge, president of the National As sociation Opposed to Woman Suf fragc should not want to vote is proper enough, but not especially sig nificant. That Miss Katharine B Davis, commissioner of correction in New York city, and head of a de partment numbering six and seen thousand voters, should not be al lowed to vote, despite her wish to do so, is highly significant. But that Mrs. Dodge should seek to prevent Miss Katherinc B. Davis from voting is preposterous." The article further tries to make clear that there is no compulsion in voting, that women like men will not need to vote if they do not wish to. But only yesterday Mrs. Arthur M. Dodge explained that were women granted the suffrage, she would sure ly vole. "Yes, I should be the first one at the polls," she told a newspaper re porter. "The vote is a duty not a privilege. Half the political trou ble we have is caused by the men neglecting it. The women generally would neglect it more than men, but if they had the franchise the anti- suffragists could be depended upon to do their duty." Well, if the suffragists are clamor ing for the vote and the leader of the antis has said that she and her fol lowers would rally round the polls if women should get the vote, what's the row about anyway? r TOMORROW'S MENU.

Write to Au:i Chatty of problems which are vexing you, and she will advise and help you to a solution of them. Write to her, too, of your own discoveries, of methods you have found successful in smoothing the rough paths of life for the tender, childish feet, that through the Mothers' Club your experience may be of benefit to other mothers who are still tangled in the web of perplexity you have so happily unraveled. Co-operation it the j'xret of success in any business; so why not in the business of motheihoo.!. that highest and holiest calling which always has been and always will be woman's crown of glory, no matter what other avenues of usefulnsss may be opened to her? Address Mrs. Charity Brush, care cf this paper. (Cbprnjht. 1915.) I want to warn the members of our Mclne1 Club to be ery careful bout the kind of shoes they buy for the chil dren. Unlets you take the greatest pair.g to gtt well-fitting footwear, both hojs ani stockings. ou may hae aerloua Ills to contend with. Even stockings that are too short., soft as they are. will cause suffering and corns, sometimes even the injury to the Joints known as bun.ins. I onco knew a man who complained con stantly of his feet; he snld he spent more than any man of his acquaintance on Ma shoes, and yet he ner seemed able to set comfortable ones. I suggested that perhaps he wore tok- Ings of too small sue. On mv aduce he bourrht number ten socks Instead of the eiKht and a half he had been wearing. and In a short time he came to thank me. He said, cratcfully. that he had not known comfort before, and that It was the socks instead -of the shoes that vera at fault. We should exercise care in buying the children's shoeB to get them long enouRh. Short shoes are more Injurious than ihoa that are too narrow. A sood half-Inch beyond the end of the big toe Is none tco much to allow the shoe to extend, uut tight shoes must bo avoided, too. Tlcat, badly-shaped shoes, which squeexe the foot out of its natural shape, must nevjr be put on a child's feet. All sorts of Ills follow in the train or the chcapiy-maa stock shoes. One of our mothers wrote to ask me lately to adtlre about her little girl's feet. She said: Dear Aunt Chatty: "My little Katie has been hating a great deal of pain In the calves of her legs all iprinsr. She often cried with it at night after I bad put her to bed, nut i didn't think much about It. I thought U was Just the gronlng pains they say every child has. But now the pain seems to be In her back, and that Is worse than in the legs. Then last night I noticed that her feet seemed to be let down; they didn't look h!gh In the instep as they used to be. and when I took hold of them she said they hurt her worse than any thing. What do you suppose has hap pen. -d to her?" , I wrote that motner that her cnua probably had broken arches; that she should take her at once to a specialist on feet If there Is one in her town, or If not to the best general pracltloner she can find: that the) child needs to have her feet attended to. and. perhaps, or-thopoedlc- shoes if the case Is 'very bad. Theso are expensive.' but the mother probably has herself to blame for the necessity of providing them. The trouble la known as "flat-root;" it U unhappily only too common nowa days. Sometimes It, U brought about by,muscuUr weakness following-. prtt eOery, rapid aTrowttm' tl , oan vt at Little Cost The top coat (on the right), is a necessity for the school girl and may be fashioned from any weathcr-resUtlng cloths A new Idei Is the lining of corduroy In a con trasting color. This garment may be purchased, made t measurements of the Individual, for 135, but made at home for much less. Mothers' Club FOOT. I young child;- but more often, I bellete. it comes rrom want of care about the shoes. How often we tell our children to "toe out!" I can remember In my own child hood that my father constantly reminded me when I was walking with him to point my toes outward, and the rest of the family gibed me because I was "pigeon-toed "' Now we know from expert study of the feet, that In walking or running the foot naturally tend to point straleht ahead or even a little Inward. When the shoe Is too tight or too short, or Is badly shaped. It prevents the foot from following this natural trend: con sequently the weight of the body Is not balanced on the ball of the foot Its real pit ot but Is thrown on muscles which never were Intended for that pur pose. Unless the child's muscular system Is unusually strong, the probabilities are that this unequally distributed welKht will break down the arches of the feet. The Injured nerves of foot, Ies, or back will cry out In protest against the Ill-treatment and the little one will suf fer all the mysterious pains that the mother of Katie wrote me she was -unable to understand. High heels are another abomination that nature punishes by broken arches if we persist in wearing them. They are bad enough for grown-up people, but I have been horrified to see them worn by young girls not yet out of their early teens girls at the period of adolescence, when the strictest attention should be paid to comfortable and suitable cloth ing. If after life Is not to be one long burden of suffering and Ill-health. I hope none of the members of our Moth ers' Club will fall to heed the warning I have tried to give In our little talk today. Answer, to Correspondents. Mrs. A. W. writes: "My l$-months-o!d baby holds her breath when she cries until she gets purple In' the face. What do you suppose makes her do It? I am afraid of some terrible disease." I think It more Mikely that It Is temper rather than sickness which makes jour baby hold her breath as you say.- If ah seems at other times to be perfectly well and comfortable I should treat It as temper. Mrs. L. H. writes: "My baby. Just months old, la greatly troubled with hic cough. What causes It?" Hiccough Is caused by an Irritation of th stomach nerves' and In so young a child Is possibly due to Indigestion. Per haps "your milk doe not agree with him. If he la a bottle baby. I should test hi food at one. ' rwhan 70 NMnkfwatr. rwhen youeat new bread, don't 'Spanish Prevera. tt&ZMOHSr. mzxww JBUPTHIDAY & ybURS'' August 27 Sophia Smith. Sophia Smith, the founder of Smith College for Women, was born in Hat field, Ma;?, in 1796. She was a niece of Olhcr Smith, who founded the Smith Charities at Northampton. This under taking had for Its object the encourage ment of young people in marrying b providing them with marriage portions. Strangely enough this very Oliver Smith who devoted so much of his fortune In encouraging matrimony belonged to a family where marriage was not popular For of his seven nieces and nephews but one married, and he had no heirs. Oliver himself had no heirs, and So the entire family fortune descended to Sophia Smith, herself a quiet, rather timid old maid whose name vould never have been handed down to fame had It not been for her benefactions. Rather than regarding her Inheritance as somothlng to rejoice over she was troubled. She had enough and to spare before sho received the additional for tune of her uncle and her brothers and sisters, nnd now, with JJCO.COO and more to dispose of she was unhappy. She went to Rev. J. M. Green, her min ister, and with tears In her eyes asked for advice. It was with reluctance that he took upon himself the disposition of the fund. Thirty thousand dollars went to Andover Theological Seminary. JTI,00u to Smith Academy, and $100,000 went to ward the foundation of n woman's col lege or, as Sophia Smith herself express ed It "to furnish for my sex means and facilities for education equal to those which are afforded now In our colleges for men." (CbiTfttht. 1915.) FASHION JOTTINGS. High crowned Kngllsh pork-pie shapes with very narrow brims done In black elvet and faced with white kid are trimmed with two crossed quills of black. Worn by the right woman, they are exceedingly chic. Velvet-crowned turbans with cut Jet flowers trimming their brims are among the new fall models shown. Alf black boots coma Into the shoe style arena for fall., restored to fashion able affections, but not displacing those which are decorated to some extent. A chockcr collar for wear with one piece dresses Is fashioned of perfectly plain white organdy and closes in front. It is boned quite high at the back, slop ing down a bit beneath the chin. From the top of this collar flares a two- Inrh-wMj elrrtllnr-eut hrlm nf th nr. gandy. This Is the neweet of the new I nmong collar modes. It. Is smartly made and should be worn with a clean-cut. well-tailored suit of blue, designed along very modish lines. A hat to top this costume could be made in turban shape. Model the crown of antique damasks or dull-toned Chi nese embroidery. Construct the brim of fur. mink, krlmmer or astrachan. Use knots, of small (lowers v made of heavy worsteds which accent the color, notes contained In the material used furl tha crown. Finish the toilette with black patent' leather boots, with which dark blue hos-t lery is worn. Flesh colors, white and black are the I preferred all-one-color modes, put striped and brocaded silks and satins are draped with airy white tulles after the fashion of the n period. Basques are boned and ffjrdlta are growing' broader. ,. . j:i- j: j i -rune-maae irucse nipauii upvn cerocu hem' for UMir exiMMM kcv - jmmmm HOUSE- -WIYES EAILY J&3IQ- ECONOMY CALENDAR THE VALUE OF MEASURING. Many batches of cake have been polled in the making because of In accurate measuring. We "estimate" a teaspoonful of baking powder, or we use a heaping teaspoonful where a level one Is called for. or we read "spoonful" and measure tablespoonful Instead of tea spoonful. Now much of the Inaccuracy of meas uring is more of a fault of the way our recipes are written than it Is a fault of our method of measuring. The mod ern cookbooks compiled by reliable au thorities measure In a standard way. All measures are level, a teaspoon is used for baking powder, tablespoonfuls are indicated when desired, a cupful means a quarter of a quart and every thing else Is accurately measured and called for. But many older cookbooks and almost all family- recipes are, full of ambiguous directions about measur ing. The Hrst thing to do Is to get a set of measuring Implements. Buy n pint meas ure and a half-pint cup. Have a meas uring teaspoon, tablespoon and salt spoon. Buy a pair of scales. And then measure accurately. The next thing to do Is to set about standardising all your recipes- You have learned, by habit, when a rounded, when a heaping and when a level tea spoonful of baking powder is required when the recipe calls for" "a spoonful." Tou know what butter tho sire of a walnut means. "Almost a cupful of milk" sometimes proves too much and sometimes too little according to the amount jou pour Into the cup. When you can, simply rewrite the recipe In question giving the approved measurements. When ou are not sure just how much is meant, make the dish the recipe describes, keeping track of the measure you use. If It turns out successfully rewrite It with the cor rected measurements. If not. try again until jou find out Just how much of every Ingredient Is needed. Usually a level teaspoonful of baking powder is required for a level cupful of flour. Flour should alwa-8 be sifted once before measuring. It should bo lifted Into the cup with a tablespoon or scoop, not packed down tightly, but leveled off at the top with a knife. Fractions of teaspoonfuls are difficult to manage, but remember alwaj-s to fill the spoon, level it with a knife, and then cut it In halves or quarters as the case may be. With the knife push off the quarters not wanted. (Cbpjrltft, IIS.) Scholarship Winners Announced. Louis T. Shannon, of Pittsburgh. Pa., and Robert R. Litehlser, of Eaton.
