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
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
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
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

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
"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

THIS is a real Mothers' Club, for the benefit of mothers everywhere
who are struggling with questions of discipline; training, educa
tion, clothing, or the children. 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.
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

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.

Now we know from expert study of
the feet, that In walking or running the

ahead or even a little Inward. When
the shoe Is too tight or too short, or
Is badly shaped. It prevents the foot

Is unusually strong, the probabilities are

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

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
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
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.
