On the Real
, of the Idea of What the
j Real Preparedness Con
sists, as Told by One
jane-r-Her Universe May
Not Contain Galicia, or
, St. Louis, But She Knows
.All About Those Big
JANE went to a meeting of some
thing or other last night and camo
home Imbued with the Idea that
he ahould persuade the whole
family to march In the parado Wednes
day. Jano always U deciding that the
family ought to do something.
First It was set a piano, then a vie
trolft, and along; with each one of those
came all sorts of things. With the vlc
trola she made her father wear tight
clothes, and shave oft his nlco whisk
ers so that ho only had a mus
tache, lie Is a small chlnlcss man, and
slightly bowleggcd, and when he was
robbed of his whiskers and his baggy
trousers both at the samo time he look
ed lliie a Mexican hairless.
So If Jane wants the family to march
She says that It Isn't so much that tho
walking means anything, although
goodness knows everybody'll see you,
but that the whole thing Indicates a sort
of readiness. She says that for every
step taken there should bo a battleship,
or a torpedo boat, but that she can't
Imagine what kind of shoes she will
Ferdy told her that ho thought that
preparedness was a good idea alright,
but that he wasn't going to walk on
account of his feet. It seems he has
some sort of nn affliction that no ono
ever heard of before. Strange how
f;reat national events like this bring out
Ittle Individual traits and weaknesses.
Those were Jane's very words.
Jane does get oft some awfully
5ood stuff. Cut, of course, now that
10 has the parade on her mind she,
la too busy to spend much time
thinking up repartee for the next day.
She doesn't know Just yet whether
or not sho will march or watch. She
ays that she believes In prepared
ness for a certainty, and that she al
ways did, even when sho was a llttlo
thing, she never was without an um
brella and overshoes and a handker
chief, but tnat her marching all de
pends upon the day Itself. It It's
clear, and the right people are In the
parade, she'll march, but If she finds
some nice folks to take her In their
oar ahe thinks that she will just sit
and watch tho people go by.
At all costs, she wants the family to
march, because then sho will have
some real reason, some real excuse,
for watching tho parade and for be
ing there. U'b so much nicer when
you havo some reason for doing
something, she thinks.
Besides, speaking of sitting In the
car with some one else, she says
that It is much more edifying, be
cause one can pick up so mnny smart
things out In the air at an occasion
like that. She says thru she has been
trying to find out where Oallcla In
since. last Friday, but that sho just
simply hasn't had the time. How
ever, If she sits to watch the parade
site will get a chance to ask some
man and then she can talk with him
about the Russian drives.
If It la clenr she'll wear her paint
ed hat. If it Isn't clear, she'll wear
It anyhow, because she will go In
some place and have some tea. And,
of course, she believes In prepared
ness. Tie Gentleman on Our Left has had
an atrial cold. lie says that If It
doesn't atop raining for good, that he
might as well enlist, because 'if he
doesn't he'll die of cold. Besides that,
he claims that even the fringe on the
edge of hla bathrobe Is moldy.
We don't quite recognize this par
ticular brand of poetry, hut as long
as there Is such a thing as vers llbre
we'll have to let It pass. For the
Idea Is a good one. Women have mop
ped up the street car seats for years
without one single tribute. It Is too
good an opportunity to give recogni
tion where recognition Is due, to let
slip; -wo print therefore:
"Passengers Must Dry the Seats."
Have you over been on an open car
when It was raining.
Ana watched the people "grin and
bear" without ever complaining
About the rain that wan coming In

would ruin a gingham gown

And after it had ceased its raining,
me bpi were leu 10 ary;
They didn't even wlpo them, 'causo the
passengers would, by nnd bv.
What they should have, so It seems to
me, is a chamois skin and mop
Without a hnndle, dry and clean, MoroU

Of each cnr. So that when It rained they
could easily take them down
And drv tho seatB nnd back of teats,

How Complexity of Woman's Nature Shows In
Her Face and Makes Portrait Painting Hard
Miss Juliet Thompson, a
Washington Girl, Who
Has Become a Famous
Artist, Testifies to the
Complexity of Woman's
Nature, and Tells How
Spirit 'Underneath ( Shows
in the Face.
Enables the Artist toFind
the Soul ofa Person, Pro
vided, of Course, There Is
One To Ber Found How
Miss Thompson Painted
the Great PersianoMystic,
By FLORENCE EL YODER.
THERE la a legltlmato excuse
for the existence of that an
noying hut oft. bromldlcally
quoted phrase. "That's just
like a woman."
This hint that anything not under
standable and different or hard to
trace is characteristic of woman Is
merely a verbal acknowledgment
of the complexity ot women. Some
women admit this complexity; others
can't see It. and stIQ others .fly Into
a terrific race when it Is oven sug
gested. However, It's there, and. what Is
more, shows lncvcry woman's face.
Not overv one, however, can see
this "I will and I won't for reasons
of my own" spirit tn the, counte
nance. It takes an expert to define
It, even to sco it. And even then
very few live who can reproduce It.
Miss Juliet Thompson, a famous
woman painter, who Is in tho city
for a short time, not only aces and
defines this complexity of nature,
but she Is nble to reproduce it has
the rare ability of showing mora
than mere lineament on canves.
Her statement, in tho midst of a
conversational sort of an interview
about a little bit of everything th.it
women are much harder to paint
than men. paved the way for a
short discussion of the subject.
Is Corcoran Art Graduate.
Miss Thompson, bv the way. Is a
graduate of tho Corcoran Art
School, of this city, and lived hero
before her continental training be
gan. Sho Is ono of tho few women
artists ot America who has become
reallv successful, and who has made
more than just a living out of por
trnlt painting. . . ..
"Women are much harder to paint
than men," said Miss Thompson,
"Inrgclv from tho reason that they
either have moro ability In repress
ing their feelings, or have a greater
succession of feelings which show in
the face. They nro fundamentally
more complex than men.
"It takes several visits, sometimes
several sittings for me to 'find' a
woman. Their emotions are varying;
their Impulses differ widely; and
their true selves rarely or never
come to the surface.
"Their one desire of course. Is that
the picture for which they sit shall
be as good looking as possible. As
far as I can remember there are very
few women who concern themselves
with tho point as to whether or not
their pictures shall carry something
more than a likeness of them, that
they can be made to show their real
selves, their true natures and their

Hurely Miss Thompson's work has
justified hor statements. For ex
ample, two pictures, of widely differ
ing types, old age and youth, are
reproduced with this story. In
neither of these. Miss Thompson ex
plained, did she have any difficulty
In "finding her subject." In the case
of the child there was innocence,
blandness, unhidden wonder. In the
case of tho old man, thcro waa a
soul, a purpose, an unmistakable
something which spoke of higher
things, to reproduce.
For the older man Is Abdul TJaha.
Finding his soul was not difficult,
chiefly becauso he has such a big one
big enough to have accomplished
the founding of a faith which welds
together thousands ot people, from

He is the prophet ot the Baha faith,
although ho disclaims such a title,
towing that It belongs rightly only
to his father. Ho was born In prison,
and prior to his visit to the United
States in 1P12 had been Incarcerated
for forty years.
Miss Thompson Is the first to ever
paint his portrait. "When he first
sat for me." sho said, "I felt that
I could never portray him; that I
could never adequately express his
foe. Yet when the time came It
took me less than an hour to paint
a portrait which was practically the
beginning of my larger success. All
becausu there wan something there,
unreptessed. evident, unmistakable.''

Why a Lingering Cough '
Should Send Sufferer To
The Doctor At Once
By DR. LEONARD KEENE HIRSHBERG.
TO paraphrase a well-known saying,
a cough stopped in times saves
nine. Few mortal men fear ono
coush. Almost as many do not
fear any number of coughs.
Nevertheless. If you will fear coughs
In the medieval sense of the Biblical
admonition to fear God which means
to have a wholesome understanding and
regard for power Interwoven there you
will avoid much evil.
When you am admonished to visit a
diagnostician or a hospital "for a tuber
culosis test." the fear that strikes your
heart cold is almost altogether uncalled
for. The advice Is good and necessary
for almost all coushs other than
whooping cough In children that endure
more than two weeks. This holds true
as well for summer coughs as for those,
of January, February and March.
