THE OHIOAQOBAOLB, r i ! i pi v ; HOUSEWIVES IN. AMERICA AND EUROPE. ' Br Dsfia Austrian. I ' Many American women declare that the trials B of housekeeping are becoming so manifold that Ft after a few years of arduous labor they are seized with nervous prostration. To one traveling Vj nbrood It Is Interesting to compare the responsl V bllltlcs of the foreign housewife and her Amerl- can sisters. Whllo In Dresden I met n woman Jt who gave me much Information concerning this Vk uuestlon as It appears In Germany. One day she Howednio through her home, artistic In Its simplicity. The house was full of sunshine and fragrant odors given off b Dotted plants. The place bespoke case rather than beau ty. There were plenty of comfortable chairs to be found; .i .!.. nrinta nml ctchtnffs were everywhere on the walls, and the library was well stocked with books. After he had sliown me through I remarked that she must have many servants to keep so large n piace in orocn om. ananrormU "I sunnose uiv home 'would nppear a great deal mAM ittmriivA thfin It does If I kent more servants. You see. I only have a cook, chambermaid, and a woman to help with the washing and Ironing two days out of the week. Your women have so many more Interests tlian we. We have no clubs and classes that demand our time. Besides making up the bedrooms, I keep the sitting room and my husband's library In order and do the week's mend tag. My afternoons arc given to reading and an occasional can or 'KalToc Klatsch.' Besides, most of the men In Ger many come homo nt noon, so wo have dinner nt 12 and a cold supper In the evenings Our husbands lay much stress en their food. Though a woman docs not always do her own cooking, It Is taken for granted that she will superin tend her kitchen. We do all our own marketing and rarely order anything over the tolephonc. The German woman Is not expected to attain social position for her husband nor ustaln It. Iter function Is to pleaso him, look aftor her home, and bring up the children." The French woman Is probably the best housekeeper In the world. She Is devoted to her home and to her family. Ber household Is exceptionally clean and attractive, though be manages to do It with few servants. If she docs not assist In the kitchen, she superintends It; she sees that the table cloths and napkins arc snow white and that tlio table to set with taste. She Is equally particular about her own appearance and that of her children. The English arc cxcedlngly simple and unaffected In their homes. They desire comfort more than luxury. Htlll, In the family tlir, nusbnnd Is constdcrcdihe head of the house hold. Ho llr in the weekly expense and no Improvement to made In t' i household without his being consulted first. If expenses Jro to be cut It Is his wife who Is expected to get alonVwIth one servant less. An English woman wilt live on a leg of mutton served hot on Sunday and warmed up In different styles during the week so that her husband can frequent Ids club, enjoy oysters and partridge, Notwithstanding that the English arc hearty eaters, they live simply. The household Is managed with great ccon omr, dinner In the evening being the only elaborate meal f tho day. CONSTANCY MAY BE CARRIED TO EXCESS. Br H!en outlet, Constancy In love Is n virtue much lauded of romancers. Yet It may be carried to excess when (lie lovo is not reciprocated constancy Is foolish, and when tho beloved Is bound to another, instead of a virtue It become a vice. Even wheo neither pride nor duty forbids one to worship at tho old shrine, when death has broken the .tie, the law of the land sanction a second' lote. and the hearts of men Incline thereto. We all know second marriages which aro Indubitably happy. It Is a merciful providence for humanity that wounds of the heart, for the most part, heal even mora readily than thoso of the body. There are few proplc comparatively who marry their first loves, nor Is this fact always a misfortune. George Eliot, naturally, disbelieved In first love. "Why," she asks, "should a man's first lovo be his best? Does the artist or the musician produce his masterpieces at the beginning fl of his career" Thackeray tells us that "every man ought to bo In love a few times and have a sharp attack of the fever." It Is often a blessing when one Is torn ruthlessly from one's first love. The mad devotion of a collego boy for a woman In the thirties Is as unlike to tho steady flame of his manhood as the flare of a straw heap Is to the warmth of an nnthraclte fire, whllo the Infatuation of a girl of 17 Is rarely felt for the sort of man whom a woman of S3 would choose for her husband. The true philosophy of life Is contentment. "In what soever state ye are, therewith to be content." This Is the victory which overcometh tho world. Ho who cries for the moon, and turns IiIh back upon the electric light blazing overhead, Is n fool; while the men who has only a rush light has still cause to rejoice that he sits not In darkness. When one cannot have what one wants, it Is the part of wisdom to accept what one can get and make the best of It Oftentimes that best will be for better than at first seemed possible. Most tastes In life are acquired, and the blackest bread, eaten with a hearty appetite, has a sweeter' relish than the whitest lonf of princes If the "cake bread" be watered with tears. Heartache Is bitter, but memory readily loses the old In the presence of the new. Fever Is followed by chill, and then one recovers. The latest lore Is always the one which Is loved. SHALL SOCIETY SHARE IN TRUST BENEFITS. By Fraitrlck H. Taylor, Professor of Political economy. mmi The utterances of President Roosevelt regard- B Ing the trusts emphasize the question whether or 7 not their permanence is fully assured. In recent wJ newspaper comment much stress has been placed VI on the throwing of people out of employment This Is claimed one of their greatest advantages, for throwing people out of employment by mak- Bk Ing their services unnecessary Is merely Insuring 9HeJ that the sum total of our wants shall be satisfied at smaller cost Another evil generally charged to the trust It the maintenance of outrageously high prices, but we would probably be able In most cases to take refuge In tho use of substitutes. The gas monopoly, the electric monopoly, find competitors In each other, as well as In the new Inventions like acetylene gas, or old friends like kerosene. Again, If any one trust push Its advantage too far, It will Inevitably stimulate competition of allied trusts If It demands such a high price that there Is profit to be made at this price, then competition Inevitably springs up. The existence of the trust depends on Its not exacting from the public the highest price which could be paid. If must be admitted that the trust leads to n vast sav ing In human effort. Tho great consolidation saves In the utilization of materials. The great factory has so much waste that It pays to establish by-lndustrles. Again, It carries out in tho complctest way the principle of geograph ical specialization. The school furniture trust, for exam ple, will not call upon the Hoston factory to furnish a school building In Omaha, but will give the order to the particular plant that Is nearest to the point. Another ad vantage promised li a greater freedom from Industrial storms, panics and depressions. Unrestricted competition Is wasteful and often dangerous to quiet, orderly progress. In a crisis there Is no unity of action. It is "each man for himself." Gigantic combinations naturally enough move on more steadily. Competition Is shut out. It Is, therefore, pretty certain that the Industrial cyclone would be much less likely. Thorough-going socialists welcomo the process of consolidation among warring Industries. One after another, they say, these Industries will be organized Into trusts and these trusts In turn will consolidate, until all Industrial activity Is united in one universal monopoly, whereupon tho stato will take possession and the socialistic goal will have been attained. Just what form of regula tion the trust will take it Is hard to predict. It Is proba ble that, first, a fairly sharp distinction will be made be tween thoso Industrial Institutions which may be left to the ordinary forces of competition and those which need regulation. A few thoroughly consolidated Industrial In terests will probably be brought under the direct control of the public. The remainder will then be left In the hands of prlvato Individuals, but will be subjected to sharp regula tion, with such degree of publicity In accounting as shall Insure tho safeguarding of the rights and Interests of ths public. A BRAINY WOMAN. UBS. lVA E. TUTT Western Reality Who Is the Head of n Bis Klectrlcot Enterprise. A beauty with brains is one defini tion of tho word nuomaly. A synonym for it Is Mrs.x'Iva E. Tutt, of Los Angeles, Cul. Mrs. Tutt lias moro beauty than most women and more brains than most jnen. At present she Is engaged in a 13,000,000 enter prise In Arizona, the erection of two electric power plunts which will supply power ex clusively for mln lug purposes. Tho project is a big one. It means that the mining Industry of Arizona will be revolutionized by the introduction of a power which will cost but one third as much as the power now in use. The scheme Is Mrs. Tutt's own. While on a visit to Arlzpna she dis covered two unused water rights which could be bad at a fair price and a promise to organize a company and proceed with the storage of tho water and the development of electrical cur rent. Mrs. Tutt contracted for tho water rights, took out her eiiKlueerlnir party, followed tho trnuslt every step of tho way back to tho mountains, where few mun and no women had ever gono before, to the head of Fos sil creek, and returned with all plans formulated for tho prosecution of tho work. Last, and by no means simplest was the financiering of tho enterprise. The fact that she was willing to risk ber own money In tho scheme helped Mrs. Tutt In interesting additional capital, and two companies wero form ed, one to erect a (1,000 horse-power plant, the other 1.500. Of both com panies Mrs. Tutt is vlco president mid general manager, and all that tho rest of the stockholders know about tho work Is what she reports to them from time to time. She has entire churgo of the construction work, with head quarters at I'rescott, Ariz., and tho directorate Is so divided that whenover Mrs. Tutt happens to be, whether in Frescott or Los Angeles, there is a quorum and a meeting can bo held. DIAMONDS PROM THE SKIES. Theory that Precloas Stones Came to Karta u lUtooritsa. Diamonds from the skies, conveyed to earth in meteoric showers, is a the ory first broached by Meydenhauer. The diamond, he says, cau be of cos mic origin only, having fallen as a meteorite at a late period of the earth's formation. Tho localities where dia monds aro found contain tho residues of not very compact meteoric masses which may have falls la historic ages JOYS OF A VACATION SPENT UNDER CANVAS IN THE WOODS KM ORE and moro popular Is camp life becoming each year, says I VI Country Life In America. With those who go Into tho deep woods in I 1 quest of big game and fish tho camp life Is, after all, tho real attrac A jtlon, and not the mero desire to kill. Hut where one can make thoso trips, there are thousands who cannot. For these there are peaceful river, wood-girt lakes and ponds and beautiful spats on tho shores of Old Neptuuo available for quite as charming a two weeks' outing beneath canvas, in mnklng up a camping party, chooso you such congenial spirits as shall bo forsworn to philosophical optimism.

Tho most striking confirmation of the theory comes from Arizona. Here on a broad plain over an area about llvo miles In dlainoter wero scattered 1,000 to 2,000 masses of metallic Iron, the fragments weighing from half a ton to n fraction of an ounce. Thero Is little doubt thoso musses formed part of u meteoric shower, although no rec ord exists ns to when the fall took pl.iee. Curiously enough, near the cen ter where most of the meteorites have been found Is a crater with ragged edges, three-quarters of a mile In di ameter and about 000 feet deep, bear ing exactly tho appearance which would bo produced hud a mighty mass of Iron or falling star struck the ground, scattering In all directions, and burleu Itself under the surface. Dr. 1'ooto In cutting a section of this me teorite, found tho tools wero injured by something vastly harder than mo tnlllo Iron. Ho examined tho speci men chemically aud soon after an nounced to the scientific world that the Arizona meteorite contained black and transparent diamonds. This discovery was verified by Profs. Frlcdel and Nolssan, who found that it contained three varieties of carbon, diamond, graphite and amorphous carbon. Glacial Age Near Its End.
