8 THE WASHINGTON TIMES;. MONDAY, JANUARY- V 1917i GENUINE MOTHER IN 'TDM TO THE RIGHT' Maternal Spirit Pervades Com- . forting Play at National This Week. SHE RESCUES OUTCAST SON Divine Faith, Coupled With De licious Jam, Works Won ders on Convict. There is a real, all-wool-and-a-yard-wide, guaranteed-not-to-shrlnk mother lit town this week, at the National Theater. Not thai there are not lots of Just Buch mothers here In Washington, but they haven't been made popular. The real mother who has absolute faith In her children, and who up holds them through thick and thin, and round and square, isn't exactljr the kind who likes to have her type made into a public exhibition. In fact, most producers and authors along with most good mothers are never able to see anything either In teresting or unusual about the good ness. They are never chosen as types for stage mothers. "Wlnchell Smith, however, the au thor of "Turn to the Right," the play at the National this week, saw the advsp.t&ge In portraying just such a comforting, every-day guaranteed type, so he put her into a play. Turn to the Right," of.course. Isn't entirely about a mother. there are other, characters crooks., to be" ex plicit but somehow the mother seems tti have the stage even when she hasn't. Her spirit is there even when her material body isn't. She dom inates' this play. r A Regular oHther. As was stated before, Mrs. Bascon (that Is her stage name) isn't a regu lar stage mother. She is Just a. reg ular mother. t She is not the scheming mother of the society play, the blunderlne mother of the farce, the mother-with-a-past of the tragic melodrama, but the mother of clean heart, unbounded self-sacrifice, limitless faith in God, and it is the Influence of this mother upon not only all the characters In the play, but also upon the, audience that Is the real secret of Its lasting quality. For In a way the authors have evolved In the character of Mrs. Bascom a sort of superworoan. .and it Is In the evolution of such a character within the limits of an evening's en tertainment that Winchell Smith's genius for stage craft makes itself manifest, for Mr. Hazzard, who con- calved, tlje central comedy Idea of the play, has generously given credit to his collaborator for the remarkable development into the success it is. Tke Story. In the prologue Joe Bascom Is seen Just after, his discharge from a year In prison (for a crime, that it devel ops later, he never committed), and is met by Gllly, a. young burglar, and Muggs.. a pickpocket, former prison pals. They cannot understand his re fusal to Join them in a raid on an "easy crib," and, when he tells them of "some one" who Is waiting for him they contemptuously remark. "Oh. a W-l w. ' " T3Ainl1 Tn. ..fiim. tn th. n u" t.Tv'iZJ. '" ":z: i:r." -- uuiuc uq uou jcib ico j cars uciurc. L We Meet Mother. The white-haired mother, who had , not heard from him during his year in prison .is saying her nightly prayer for him home-coming, while the sis ter, who scarcely remembers her brother. Is setting in the window the lamp that has burned there all these years as a beacon for him. It is probably their last night in the llttlo farmhouse with Its famous peach orchard, for a. skinflint neighbor Is about to take it for a trifling debt. There Is . wonderful tcar-corapel- ling welcome for Joe, and then, while mother and sister are preparing sup per for him, there Is a knock at the door and Joe opens it to admit his two prison pals. Lured By Jam! His astonishment Is only equaled by theirs, for they had been thrown from a train lor lack of fare and wan dered to this inviting little farm house, lured by the tantalizing smell of delicious peach Jam the Jam for which Mrs. Bascom was almost as noted as for her saintliness And when the "dame" for whom Joe had deserted them turns out to be a white haired, sweet-faced old mother their astonishment Is turned to awe. The guileless old lady welcomes the boys, who are Introduced as "business friends." gives them the first home meal they had eaten since childhood, takes them off to church and fairly dazes them by their first taste of raotherlln ess. The Plot Thickens. When the village skinflint, seeking 40 foreclose on the farm, is paid in f- foil by Joe, the dear old mother never dreams mat uiiiy nas secured the money by robbing the old Shy lock's safe and then returning the money to the safe in order to escape de tection after Muggs had picked the bills from the old roan's pocket; nor does she question their "purchase" of the peach crori from her, for the boys ultimately find a ready purchaser for .Che entire output of the famous Bas com peach Jam and make a fortune for her and for themselves. Tho de velopment of these boys under her Influence Is one of the most remark able bits of dramatic writing enjoyed in many years. Her flrst influence Is shown by their desire to wash their , hands. And "All Is Well" ' Cleanliness i indeed, next to God liness, and the influence for good Is at work' at once When Gllly falls and sprains, his back the old lady's gentle ..ministrations are like the "laying on of hands," of which he heard for the flrst time at the church meeting. At mother's approach quar rels cease. Mother's divine faith ac cepts all the wonderful happenings that follow without question, and these happenings, in turn, become not wonderful, but natural. Cuplc ap pears early on the scene and through all his busy workings mother moves saintlike and serene, until at the end, after watching the departure of three happy -young pairs of lovers, she sighs contentedly and murmurs "All Is wen." A FEW RECIPES Easy Suggestions for 'the House wife. French Chicken rot. Put a large fowl, trussed for boil ing, breast downward. Into a fireproof casserole, add the cleansed giblets, one pint of cold water, a carrot, onion, blade of mace and seasoning. Cover closely, cook gently until perfectly tender (usually about two hours). Remove the fowl from the pot, cut In Joints, strain the liquor and then replace the pieces of fowl. Beat up a raw egg, pour in five min utes- before serving, and the last thing sprinkle in a tablespoonful of capers. Serve in the casserole. It is by this careful cooking and still more careful buying that the French woman shows us the secret of almost luxurious meats at the mini mum of cost. Stewed Lambs' Hearts. Trim and soak hearts in cold water. Make a dressing of breadcrumbs sea soned with onions, herbs, salt and pepper. Drain the hearts, stuff with the dressing and skewer the top to close the opening.. Put in a stewpan, half cover with boiling water, cover the pan and put in the oven to Sim mer slowly until tenQer. Thicken the gravy, 'flavor with table sauce, boil up and serve. POPULAR MEDICINE BY DR. HIRSHBERG Intelligent Observation of.RuIes of Hygiene Will De crease Illness. By DR. ft. HIRSHBERG. The health of a. vigorous human above forty, if carefully conserved and held in the reservoirs of his an atomy, should carry him efficiently to par. Unless there has been a fog and a miasma in the lowlands of his spring and summer, the fair banks of his stream of life should support him firmly through the gray autumn and bleak winters of his wayfaring life. Happy Is he who can hasten with, the' key to his safe deposit vault, at any crisis for the coupons ana dividends upon health and strength. saved in the heyday of his spring time. I know a man who by time's inex orable reckoning should be. bent, de crepit and gray-looked. Six and ae enty are his years, yet smart Judges agreed, until correctly" Informed, that he was not past fifty. There Is no reason why such a spry, useful and youthful man should be phenomenal enough to be interviewed. What one "young-old" ,man does might mislead you Into a fallacy, a sweeping "moral effect" of generalizing. You might fall into the common error of think ing and doing what he does without regard to many other more Important things 'he did long ago and your pe culiarities of the present. Mr. Winston Spencer Churchill, the English phil osopher, admiral, soldier, and politi cian, says that many good people suf fer from this influence of "moral ef fect." Ton Most Know Yourself A "moral effect" is an Impression you ought not allow yourself to sus tain. It is an unwarranted extension of a small or long physical effect to regions actually far outside Its scope. It is an exaggerated deduction from one incident. It Is an error of gener alization of a few facts. It is the wrong application of what is good for ninety men Is good for the whole-human race. In the end this Is why wo allow ourselves to be imposed upon by an interview with a chancellor or an emperor. It is a sham to deceive you into giving up -a solid advantage, which you have. When a middle-aged man who smokes little or not at all is in excel lent health and reads that King Con- stantlne of Greece expects to live to a hearty old age by fasting and smok ing, and then Jmitates the "Greek bringing gifts" he gives up a solid advantage and "falls for" a lot of "moral effect." Don't Be SelMndnlgent. The middle-aged man, to be "in the pink of condition," must "stay put" and be content with little, here below. He must not be too quick to "run to seed." Let him not be lazy, hungry, easy on hlm&elf, and without muscu lar ambition. The besetting sin and aging venom of the man about forty is a "too keen appetite" and a disinclination to physical efforts. On the other hand, those malignant menaces of the middle-aged man heart disease, Bright's disease, blood vcxsel troubles and cancer are Invited to their dance of .eath if the middle-aged man be comes too strenuous or "overdoes" the athletic craze. The seven muscular ages of man may be indicated as follows: 1 The age of pulling locomotive and wheel toys. 2 The age of throwing balls, sticks and stones. 3-r-The age of spinning tops and shooting marbles. 4 The age of leap frog; fence climbing and baseball. S The age of swimming, football, lacross, and tennis. 6 The age of the gymnasium and golf. 7 The age of bowling, quoits, and croquet. If man will learn, remember. In wardly digest and apply these seven ages of athletics he will have a modi cum of strength, good health and little strain on his blood pressure, kidneys, heart and tissues. No more Is it a necessity to be bald, obese and flabby of flesh at the half-century mark. To be any of these, to belch, hiccough or 'feel full after eating" is a sign that colts are not the only creatures that need to be broken and that require a curb to their" appetites. If you are bald you kept the sun light and other, of nature's disinfect ants from your scalp. Are you middle-aged and fat? If so, you take your ease too seriously. Be Icsr. indulgent with yourself. Seek a hard chair Instead of an unsanitary, upholstered one. Walk upstairs occa sionally Instead of riding In an ele vator. Take your meals In a penny lunchroom and not In a lobster pal ace. On the other hand, those who lose much sleep. Indulge themselves exces sively and otherwise drain the cup of pleasure and comfort to the dregs will find only gall and wormwood long before forty.

All that glitters Is not gold, Oft 'tis silver, too: And each maid is metallzed. Hat and gown and shoe. NEW YORK, Dec 25. Clouds aren't the only things that have sil ver linings these days. No inaeecy, not if you have noticed tho shiny hew lingerie. Made of cloth of gold and cloth of silver It is, and if you own 'an under bodice or a combina tion of this precious sheen you can feel positively that you are up o the last scratch of fashion. And you probably do, too. Petticoats of these shimmering fabrics are dreams of moonbeams elaborately lncrusted with gold and sliver lace as well. In days of old kings thought they were going some when they donned suits of gold and silver armour but fashion's queens have certainly gone a few steps further today when they affect lingerie d'or and d'argent. Entire gowns for evening wear of these precious metallzed fabrics are as beautiful as they are popular and Mary Nash, In "The Man Who Came Back," is, showing a stunning exam ple of a silver cloth one inset with silver lace. Sliver Moonbeams In Dress. Cloth of gold and cloth of sliver slippers have of course become al rocst too common for words and are bound soon to be only worn by the poor and passe, considering the con stantly soaring price of calf skin. Hats, large and cartwheellsh of gold and silver lace are much In evi dence on heads that show also a sus piciously copper glint. For you really have to be on your metal these days and have the metal on you even if it means resorting to the help of henna. Boudoir caps of gold and silver lace and gold and sliver tissue also prove that not only plumbing, radiators, mu nitions, a,nd machines may boast metal caps. Alas, however, they-don't act quite the same way and a tired and tem peramental lady may never hope to let off steam simply by doffing her boudoir cap of gold. All gold and silver cloth evening wraps with cape collars and cuffs of fur are gorgeous . enough to make. King1 Henry the Eighth and. the fa mous i'leld or Cloth of Gold loolc like a piker, . Fairy Fans of Cobweb. Fairy fans of gold and silver gauze and gold and silver cobweb lace flut ter and twinkle under the artificial lights like so many silvery dewdropa or golden flreflys. One particularly bright, shining and novel fan I discovered in an artistic new shop the other day. It is of humble paper origin but all beauti fully coverod with gold leaf, sticks and all. A Chinese h'elroglyphlc done In a bright blue, green, and purple breaks the golden monotony of one of its folds and dangling from Its sticks Is a silken cord of matching color, gay with beads and finished with a festive Chinese tassel or a handy finger ring of Jade wherewith to anchor Its fluttering beauty ready to Its fair owners hand. The -new oriental medieval and By zantine tea gowns and negliges that now have such a royal vogue are, of course, replete with gold and silver tissues, laces, and galoons. Because of these present precious fabrics, these many metallzed modes, divers are tho poor swans who gQ questing the golden girl a la Richard Le Galiienne who are bound to be stung. They will find seeming golden girls on every hand and silver queens as well. But let them beware and remember that a gold wash and a ill ver plate has a time limit of wear. In a majority of cases the 22-karat finish is only gown and lingerie deep. the golden or the copper tress has a henna or peroxide base, and base de ceit it Is. Let the wary wooer be not dazzled by the outer shell, but let him first test his precious pet in tho crucible of love and find if her heart be of gold, and If she has a sterling character.

Treasury Department officials have under consideration .duties on wool. rubber and coffee and an Increase of the duty on sugar, as a means of avoiding the threatened deficit of the coming fiscal year. This deficit is variously estimated at $180,000. 000. by the Treasury Department and $300,000,000 by members of Congress. Wool, rubber and coffee are now on the. free list. The big volume of im portations of these products, it Is believed, would distribute the burden of heavier taxation. It is not desired to place the rates high enough to bo protective, but simply to levy tariffs for revenue purposes. Administration officials assert that no return to the recent stamp taxes is contemplated.lt Is thought the un popularly of this form of taxation was fully demonstrated In the emer gency revenue legislation adopted soon after the war.
