Teacher Since 1865 Retires at Yonkers New- York, Jan. 7.?There lives up In Yonkers a dear young lady of 70 odd years, who. after serving her country and her community for fifty two years of constant effort as a pub lic school teacher, has decided to re tire and give some of the old young women a show. When she began her service in- 1SHT, the armies of the North were just returning from their four-year ?trug ?le In the cause of freedom. Now, at the close of her ?ubile career, she Is watching day by day the thousands upon thousands of her young country men sailing across tho seas to battle in the greatest war the world has ever known?to fight for civilisation and true democracy. Miss Margaret Bate is the name of the little lady whose activities date back to the mid-Victorian period. Her boys and girls have gone forth for half a century to tight life's battles. With becoming pride she tells of some of "her boys'* who hare gone Into the world and conquered. Vice President Brennen, of the Yon kers Board of Education, who was one of her pupils, says: "I believe Miss Bate has the l.ngest continuous teaching record in the State. We are more than regretful to lose her. We aliali miss her almost aa much as aha will miss her charges." When a newly whitened celling be came water-stained and spotted one woman climbed a stepladder and first rubbed the yellow apota with a block of magnesia, then, with a powder pus, applied ordinary toilet powder, which saved a paperhancer'a bill. "Seems to me you are a bit con ceited." was my comment, and then I gave myself up to the ?rhythm ot mude and motion. We danced a while, bat by 11 o'clock the crowd seemed to be tired and very soon ?forward they left. Poor old Dick wa? too weary to bother about anything but to Set to bed. Re did say. however, that h? had had a splendid time and that he thought w. had the flne*t bunch of /rienda In town. Just a* he was leaving me he said. "I wonder who those two other wom en were that Joha sterling was mixed uri With. Who would have thought that dignified, quiet John Sterling had had such an experience In hi? life. It waa a queer ?tory, waan't It, Mar gie ?" "Not any queerer I ?hould ?ay, Dick, than might be told ?bout moat of ua." I answered. Dick wa? ?tient a moment and then ha came over to me and took Up one ot the brid? of h?lr I wa? making, preparatory to re tiring. As he did this his face came next to mine In the glas?. He smiled at me and holding up the braid ?aid, "If I keep on getting gray at the temples and you still insist that your hair shall be Its present bronse color, peo ple will one of these days be taking me for your father, Margie." "Rather they will say I am a red headed stepchild." "I don't think lhat you can s?y that I am treating you like a red-hended stepchild now, Margie." "Even If you do, Dick; I'll hav? to acknowledge I'd be very lonely with out my stepfather.*' Dirk smiled contentedly ?s he kissed me goodnight. (T. Be Continued.! Seventy-five Years Ago I ? ? Hi: rAMF.ROHf.

Tippet*, capote? and pelei inca abound. a? Redingote? were the very latest cry and short gloves and Morocco slip pers were being worn with evening drea* by the truly ?u courant. In another part of the magazine ? find a picture of the then unfinished Capitol with victorias rolling gayly up and down the muddy, rutted road that was \hen Pennsylvania avenue. It Is said that, at this period, .. street between Klghth and Eleventh streets wa? the Connecticut avenue of the time. Just for fun, let's write a few descriptions of the fair maids and dlgnitled ladiee who must have made Washington brighter In those far-oif days. On page ".>, I lind a demure mita ?II accoutred forth for her morning promenade. Her hoopsklrted drei* of heavy dove-gray silk I? figured with I green and mode very plainly, as be fit? a morning frock. A heavy man tle of dark gray velvet 1? edged with a double row of ?Ilk gimp tnrn I ming and ha? a quaint, pointed yoke | made entirely of the gimp, and a ] tiny edge of cream lace peeping out ? around the collar. All very subdued, so far. But Just wait for the bon net. I It's made Juat like a sunbonnet, only | the material la ?livery gray corded . silk. Inside the brim close to my j young lady's rosy cheeks were clus ters of pink rosebuds. Three dread? fully extravagant rose-tinted ostrich ?tips bob around on the top, and gray satin streamers tie under the chin One hears so much about the cut of our present frocks that one would fancy th*t decollete was Invented In the last few years. After perusim; the winter fashions of 1842. I've de cided that we have nothing on great s' randmother. Here is one dark-lock ed, high-colored dsmsel whose bodice of pink satin and seed pearls seem.? dangerously near slipping off her rounded shoulders. The skirt of thi? wonderful evening dress Is of ivory lace over pink satin, the lace skirt terminating in a six-Inch white silk fringe. The shining black braids of the young lady's heir are adorned with roses, and a cleverly twuAed scarf of satin and pearls. A fluffy little Pink ostrich fan and (you won't be lieve thisi ?hort gloves of white kid with a ruche of white silk at the writ!, completed a vision of the '?os Tripping gayly across another page was a yellow-curled maid all dressed up for a party, presumably at Judge Buchanan's E street mansion in a wonderful frock of turquoiec blue gros de Londres. ?T?.V??h,.t bodiCe waK Kra-*-<- ??th ? tucked fichu with a single rose at the breast. Elbow length sleeves termi nated in lace ruffles and tiows of the ?k A festoon of lace and shell pink ribbon descende.? fron, the waist to the bottom of the crinoline skirt. Hoses and lace were twined in the golden curls which fell at each side of the young girl', smiling face. The short white kid gloves are finished with many pointed scallops. Next I came ten?, a stately dow ager with a delightfully satisfied ex pression on her countenance which seemed to indicate that she had Just absortied a tid-blt of brand-new gos sip. Her crinoline of. bla?k satin had three broad stripes of ruchmg-edged velvet running from the waist front to the hem. A capote of black silk velvet was fastened across the breast with silk cord? and loop?. A ?ober bonnet of black velvet was enriched with a drooping purple plume and chin streamers of purple satin. Companioning the a f orean id dame, was a slim, young, brown-haired per son, who looked the very pink t pro priety in an afternoon dress of blue watered silk with 'a close bodice and long, tight sleeve?. Two rows of ten Inch silk ftinge, in .the same shade, decorate the wide hoop ekirt. Her ?Ilk tippet is edged with fringe not quite so deep and fattened with a huge cameo. Her bonnet of blue velvet, adorned with little lavender flowerets and lavender ostrich tips, completes what the fashion writer of the period describee as an "elegant and correct toilette." Perhaps the moet delectable morael In the book is a small ?-year-old dam sel dressed up fdr ?ome festivity of the day In an evening dress almost exactly like her mother's crinoline, niching*? and all. The only conces sion made to youth 1? that the dress is of ankle length. Made of heavy white silk It Is panelled down the front with some'half doaen rows of white ruching; Sleeves, bodice and neck are also adorned ta/lth the ruching. 'Bows of shell pink satin ribbon are placed at every criu-cros? of the rucbtng. ? __________ woo?war? f Cotfyrop New York?WaASHINGTON?Pi ?I ?

As They Get More Numerous There it nothing like war tiroes to bring out the real mettle of people, and there is no phase of the present war time which more surely shows "who is who" then does the ob servance of the various "less" days. On a Deefless Tuesday or a wheat. less Wednesday you might .-it in any restaurant, and. if you could hear the various comments of the patrons when reminded that it I? meatless or wheatless or porklee?, you could spot them all with very little difficulty. There is the eternal grouch who, though not necessarily guilty of treason in his heart, is just natural ly "agin* the grovernrnent," and everything. He knows quite well that it is, for instance, "meatless! I day." and so he orders steak. "Meatless day," politely reminds the waiter. "What, again?" bawls the grouch, ? "Well, what do'they expect u? to eat? Meatless, wheatlesg -" He just^ naturally likes to kick. He really doesn't care much about the steak and probably wouldn't have ordered it if It had been any-] thing but meatless day. And the "agitator" Is there. "What's the use of my doing with out what I want when the rich are --?vins banquet? every day ?nd more food Is wasted In the cantonments in a day than In all the homes In the country In a month? It's the same, oli} story' expect the poor to bear ail the burden." ? And he orders' white bread peremp torily, on Wednesday. And then there is the ?lost pitia ble slave? of all?the gastronomtcal slave. He Just csVn't help It if he craves mince pie or beefsteak, and j quite frequently he wages a mighty I battle between patriotism and stom ach, feeling like a veritable criminal when stomach triumph?. One such person was noted In a restaurant. In company with his wife. He ordered mince pie, and after the waiter departed an argument ensued. "I don't think we should eat mince pie," aay? wlfey. , "Because our boy? over there need the meat," ?he explains, when friend husband wants to know the why and wherefore of her objection. "How many soldiers do you think the meat in that piece of pie would fe.ed?" demanded the slave of the fleshpots. ? "I can't help thinking that when ever I ?at a bit more of anything than I need, I may be taking; It away from some poor fellow over there in the trenches, maybe our own aon?*? > a* '?Sa?V waiter; you can chan?<?| 1 that pie? Make it egg custard. I maybe you're right. I guess we all got to do our bit." ?? - And there is the ultra-patriot who has cut out sugar and wheat and meat altogether. There are' not many of them, it is true, but some have actually gone thl? far. Virtually all the Washington restaurants are co-operating in every way to ?ee that the "lea?" day? are observed. In the home?, however, there still Ken? to be a lack of understanding ?T the im portane? of Individuals adhering to the rule, as weft as public place?. ? Many baker? aad grocers aay that they have quite aa many demanda from housewives on wh? atiesa day aa on other daya. And It is the aame with the markets. Perhaps the house wife figure?, too, -how many soldiers would our two pound? of beesteak feed?" In many cases, though, it proves to be nothing more than forgetfulneae. One marketkeeper stated that many of his customers ordered beef on beef ltss day, but w-hi?a reminded of the day they were quite ready to change their order?. "And what class of women do you find moat enthusiastic for observa??ce of the meatless days?" this markrt -man was asked. "Why. the newlywed?. I think. The older housekeepers have become ac customed to their recular menus and they don't like anything to break in to their established rules. But the younger women seem to take it more seriously In fact. 1 find that the younger men are more careful | buyers in every way; they aeem to be more efficient/" And then he told about the ?-ery pa triotic little bride who thoughtlessly prepared a delicious steak, "country atyle." just like hubby loved it. But when hubby came home and sensed the welcome ?meli? "Huh. didn't expect ?teak tonight: .thought thia was beefleaa day," aays hubby. And what doe??Wifey do' She bursts Into tears?and gives the steak to the dog. Hubby protests, using all sort? of logic, trying to explain that since the steak haa already been purchased and cooked It couldn't possibly do the soldiers any good, and Mr. Hoover would know that It was Just an over sight and: everything. "I couldn't ?eat?a bite of it," sobs wifey, and doggie gets hi?. Sunday and Thursday are Hghtless. Tuesday Is meatless, Wednesday is wheatless aad Saturday wiU be pork lees In future. Only Friday and Mon day are left unmolested. Doubtless they will get theirs In time. People are taking it In various and sundry fashion. Some observe the 'less" days as rigidly as they would ?religious fast days. Others ignore ??.hem altogether and some are indif ferent, abstaining when they think about it But gradually the public is becoming accustomed to airing up things, and if the war huts doubtless the sverage person will no more de mand beef on Tuesday or wheat brea.l on Wedensday than he.would order Stop That Cold At Once CASCARA ?
