Chicago Domestics Are Singing Real Music Now
CHICAGO. These days the parlor maid, as she wields her duster, trills as
sweetly as if the drawing room were a comic opera stage. Her sister
maid of the upper floors hums a haunting little melody that fall3 pleasantly
on the ear. Out in the kitchen the

The house, where discord once
reigned, where chokings. squeakings
and bellowings once accompanied the
performance of each household duty,
has become one of melody; Thus, through the quiet and quieting efforts oi
the Civic Music association, a goodly number of housewives have been made
happy. The association has undertaken to train a "domestic girls' chorus."
Every Sunday from fax and wide maids of all descriptions have come to
attend the classes which are under the direction of Miss Albie Sladek.
Fifty-six girls, most of them from the north shore suburbs, attended a
recent class. The quality of their voices, in solo and in chorus, gave
evidence of great improvement. How the voices had sounded at first Miss
Sladek described by placing her hands over her ears and wrinkling her nose.
"They had the" music in them, these girls," she said, "but they didn't
know how to get it W.. They had knowledge neither of rhythm nor scale,
but their lungs certainly were in excellent condition. The first time they
sang together the building shook. Now they can sing as softly as a summer
breeze humming through the trees.
"Among the girls one has been discovered who plays practically every
musical instrument by ear and until last fall she never had touched one.

NORFOLK, VA. -The crews of the German auxiliary cruisers Eitel Friedrich

organize two baseball teams out of the crews one on the Eitel and another
on the Kronprinz, and some of the men are practicing daily. They have
spent over $200 for equipment. A little short chap whom the American
sailors call "Buelow" drove a ball over the sea wall m a practice game.

with that of the screen. This is caught
around the lower edge, the border of
the lace pointing upward. A similar
but narrower band trims the top, the
edge of the lace pointing downward. A
soft olive-green silk for the screen and
old pink under the lace make a very t

Omaha Indians Have Great Time at a Banquet
MAHA. Fifty Indians of the Omaha tribe driving their own automobiles
U and headed by White Horse, oldest Indian in the West, came down from
their tribal reservation on the Missouri river to attend a banquet at the new
11,000,000 hotel that has just been
completed in this city and named in
honor of Fontenelle, the greatest chief
the Omahas ever had.
It was 52 years ago that Fon
tenelle was killed while defending the
small white settlements along the Mis
souri river from an attack of Sioux
Indians, but his birthday is celebrated
each year on the Omaha reservation.
A majority of the Indians iu the
party had never seen a house .with
more than two stories and the sight
of an lS-story hotel was marvelous to them. But if the hotel was a wonder,
the menu, to them, was a miracle. It has been a long time since the Omaiias
ate dotr. They graduated out of that class many years ago. But hors
d'oeuvres marseillais, creme de volaille logan. cassolette de crabbe et homard
fontenelle. fromase assorti et netits grilles, and pastilles lucien are things
that the Omahas do not have every day when they are at home up on the
But the way the red men went fter those things, as well as the other
items on the menu, was worth seeing.
After the demi-tasse came the speeches and probably their equal has
never been heard in a modern hotel. They were all in the Omaha tongue.
When the time came for old White Horse to talk, he used the difficult
"Chief Talk," so called by the Indians because it is the formal language used
by the. chiefs in addressing a grand council of the tribe.
can be used in constructing a very

Cut a foundation of cardboard in a
long egg-shape, about eight and a half
inches in length and four or five
inches across its widest part. A strip
of cardboard an inch or so in width is
glued all around, and the basket cov
ered inside and outside with the silk.
Another short strip of cardboard is
covered and set in the basket, dividing
it into two compartments of equal
size. One of these compartments is
filled in completely with a pincushion,
the other forms a receptacle for a cou
ple of spools of thread and a thimble.
The "edge of the basket is finished with
rosebud trimming, or inch wide lace
can be laid all around, the edge of the
lace placed upward. The handle of the
basket is a strip of covered cardboard
fitted with a loop, which holds a pair
of small scissors.
Behold black now as the fashionable
color of the interior decorator. The
liking for it arose in Vienna, where
interior decorating is an art much
thought of. There some. of the new
houses, or rooms which had been re
decorated, showed wall papers with
black backgrounds, on which huge,
bright flowers are printed. Carpets,
too, are of black. The idea of this
method of decorating is, apparently,
to make the room strictly a back
ground for the furniture and persons
in it. The brightly flowered paper, of
course, detracts from this effect, but
the sort of paper more often used does
not have the bright flowers. It shows
a black ground, with a gray or misty
In a room thus grounded pictures
framed in black are hung. The ef
fect is startling. The pictures stand
out in reality from their somber sur
roundings. White enameled furniture
is looked on with favor for uje in
black rooms. Surely such a setting
would give the persons in it a chance
to shine forth in all the glory of color
lent them by skin and eyes, hair and
clothes. On the other hand, wouldn't
a room so furnished cast a depressing
spell on the woman who found herself
shut within its four walls for many
hours in a day?
There is an outgrowth of this craze
for black which is interesting, espe
cially to those who live in apartments,
or other crowded quarters, where the
kitchen as well as other rooms of the
house, come under occasional inspec
tion of guests. This is the black
enameled jar or box for cakes, bread
and grocery supplies of various sorts.
It is painted brilliantly with big red
roses, and makes an interesting note
of color. Six boxes or jars of this sort
ranged in orderly array on shelves
give a distinctive note to the most un
interesting pantry or kitchen.
El Paso, Tex., June 28. Charges of
conspiring to incite a revolution

who was placed under arrest at New

the train at Newmon and motor twen

Major. Louis Fuentes, his son-in-law,

That portion of his plan was carried
out, but his party was augmented by
the addition of the Federal officials
and a detachment of the Fifteenth
United States Cavalry.
The coming of Gen. Huerta to h,l

news of his detention came as a sur

The developments here at Ei Paso
caused a sensation in Mexicon quar

agencies issuing statements rejoicing
that the United States had checked an
effort on the part of the so-called re
actionary interests to regain control
of the Mexican affairs. Both agencies
had repeatedly called to the attention
of the State Department the move
ments of the Suerta group, although

In just the communities where they are needed the most, as on the East side,

Already in New York there are play

Many periods of history and many

that we see in the most recent phases

prove how everything goes by the law
of contrasts; as man returns to prim

decoration. In mute opposition woman
suddenly returns to flounces and ab

as a modicum of common sense.
