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.

Seventy-five Years Ago
I ? ? Hi: rAMF.ROHf.
A kind, friend ha? given me ?ome
fashion magatine? of the year ot ISC
Th?y are full of dainty, -raap-waaMea
dames and damsel? in crinoline?, un?
can fairly sense the perfume of lav
ender ?nd eau de cologne and the
crisp rustle of heavy satin? and bro
cantes. 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
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
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.

"Less" Days Get Less Onerous
. 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
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
And what doe??Wifey do' She bursts
