One of the great problems the ecTiool authorities have to solve in thTs city Is what to do with the small children who apply. While the high er grades In fhe different schools are all crowded, the lower grades are the ones that take up the room. In this connection it is interesting to read what some of the leaders in the medical profession have to say about sending children to school too young. We quote the following on "The Minimum School Age:" 'Tfie New Jersey Medical Society, at Its recent meeting in Atlantic City, discussed at considerable length the Question, "At what age should a cMld be admitted to our public sshojsls?" Last year Dr. Funk, of Elizabeth; Dr. -Tomlinson, of Bridgeton; Dr. Marcy, of Eiverton; Dr. Colt, of Newark; Dr. Emerson, of Orange, and Dr. McAlister, of Camden, de clared that artlfically lighted, heat ed and ventilated schoolrooms were not proper places for children of tender age; that such children fell easy prey to disease; that their eyes are-often injured by study; that they cannot grasp the subjects taught them and suffer nervous breakdown. What they need is men rest, plain food, plenty of sleep, outdoor life, playgrounds, healthful exercise and a chance to grow. TJils year the same arguments have been reiterated, and the medi cal 'society has adopted a resolution calling on the State Board of Educa tion to raise the age for admission lHrto the simplest kindergarten BehQols from four years to five, and for entrance Into the public schools t£> seven years. It Is even insisted that when children of seven are ad !S)Ued to the schools the first course 4f Study sh.o,Uid include a liberal Hmount of organized play. This Is a jjjnatter of serious im Manifestly the doctors To not advise keeping young chil dren away from school for the pur pose of Interfering with their health or education. They are seeking the permanent welfare of growing chil dren. Their practically unanimous testimony, based on wide and Intel Mgent observation, is that the nor iiml child, especially in the cities, Is not fit mentally or physically, for ordinary work of the schoolroom befpre the age of seven years. Body and brain are retarded and the eye muscles strained in children attending school between the ages of five and seven. The nervous system then undergoes itB most rapid Ejiysical development, as Dr. Colt Btates it, and should be moat care fully guarded. There is nothing lost and much to be gained by keeping your children out of school till they are at least seven years old. New York does not receive them till they are eight, and finds that on the average those then entering the schools are better qual ified for study, make more rapid progress and soon catch up with those who entered at an earlier age. Many parents send their children to .torn sort of school as soon as they can walk, so as to get them out of the way; but the playground, not the schoolroom, is the place for these little ones. NO "BUND" DELEGATES. - We want no "blind" delegates go ing to the state convention this year. Every man of them ought to go on record before the primary as to ■whom they favor for governor. In these days of slate-making It is easy ■enough to decide who one Is going "to vote for long before the conven - tion meets. There are always two or three men prominently mentioned for the nomination and the people must have their preference. Since the bosses have been successful thus far in preventing the people nomi nating their candidates for governor by direct vote, the people ought to Insist upon knowing Just who the delegates favor before they vote for them. These are days when the people vote with their eyes open. The delegates are merely represen tatives of the voters.

French Jinen is a favorite material for the making of little girls' dresses and this one is blue with lines of white while the collar is of white banded with embroidery. The combination is a pretty one and the dress is altogeth er charming and attractive. It is simple, too, meaning very little labor for tne making. The skirt is a straight one, plaited and joined to the belt and the blouse is laid in one tuck over each shoulder and gathered at the lower edge and the dress is closed at the back. The collarless neck and the Bhort sleeves are bot^ charming and comfortable for warm weather but the neck can be made high by using the standing collar If preferred. The knotted tie gives a smart touch and preferably, is made from contrast ing material as the blue linen illus trated. Linen and poplins and also the thinner lawns and batistes are suited to the design, for such a dress can be made from heavier material and adapted to the cooler days or from thinner fabrics and suited to the warmer ones with equal success. Dresden dimity or batiste treated just as illustrated would make an exceed ingly dainty little frock and with It could be worn a tie of pale blue or pink lawn, or one of ribbon simply tacked to position and removed when the dress requires laundering. Plain colored linen with the trimming por tions of white scalloped by hand would be exceedingly smart and the model is suited to all these materials equally well. For the ten year size will be re quired 6 yards of material 24 or 27, 4*4 yards 32 or 8V4 yards 44 inches wide with % yard 27 Inches wide for the trimming portion, 2f, yards of band ing.

J««s The Evening Chit-Chat By RUTH CAMERON THE single standard of morality for both sexes that you keep talking j about is absolutely Impossible and absurd," a man wrote to me the other day, "and I wish you would write on more sensible subjects. Tell women to stay at home and darn their husband'i stockings and leave the things they don't understand alone, and you will be doing more j good in the world." I There is a familiar ring about that injunction to the ladies to attend I to their darning." ' _ Some years ago, as a newspaper woman, I accompanied half a dozen * * 11 — —.~V. afn I SUHraglSlS WHO WCIO luamuB « ivu. speaking on woman's suffrage and trying to get signa tures for a giant suffrage petition. In order to get incidents for my story, I myself took the petition one day, and went about with it in a mill town where there was an unusually ignorant class of people. When the men refused to sign, I al ways asked them why they did not believe in woman's suffrage, and in four cases out of five I got slight variations of one answer: "I want my wife to stay at home and darn my stockings." But that is merely by the way. What I started to speak about was my friend's assertion that a single standard of morality for both men and women is an absolute impossibility. * J J 1. _ 1 ,1 If tillb man naa nveu niLy u. a — f~"\= '• — . undoubtedly have Bald that It was an Impossibility that women should enter colleges or succeed In business. , If women will make up their minds that they want a single standard of morality Just as they did that they wanted to go into business, they will have it. If girls will decide that they want husbands with as clean records as they themselves liave, Just as they decided that they wanted college edu cations, they will get them. The only reason we are not nearer the attainment of this ideal is that women have been content with conditions as they are in this respect, and haven't made up their minds to demand better things. In British East India, it is the custom that a woman will not marry a man until he goes to some neighboring tribe and brings back three heads as proof of his prowess. The men are not a bloodthirsty lot. They don't kill for the love of killing. They simply get those three heads be cause that is what the women have decided that they want. The editor of a well known woman's magazine comments on this custom: . , . . m , "It is gruesome, yes; but all the same it is a universal human fact. In a thousand ways—most of them more pleasant than that this sort of thing goes on the world over; what women decide becomes custom The moral of this to Mr. Bok is, that since this is so, since woman has so great an Influence, she ought to be content and not to ask the right to help make laws. With all duo respect to Mr. Bok I going to make bold to read a different lesson, and that is that since woman has so great an influence and can have whatever she wants, this single standard of morality is not an impossibility if only women will want it enough. I admit they don't want it enough todB5r But the success of a play like "A Man s World" proves that they have at least begun to think on this subject. And with that step taken I think the rest is sure to come. Not soon, by any means. I don t mean that. But maybe when old Halley's comet comes on his next trip he will see as great a change in this respect as be has seen in others since his visit of three-quarters of a century ago. Who knows? Daddy 's Bedtime Story The Two Travelers' Stories He Spoke In a Slow. Driwlinl Tone ONCE daddy bad to go away from home for a few day» on business. You may be sure that Evelyn and Jack were glad to welcome hiin ! back. One of the Brat questions he asked them was, "Well, young sters, did you miss daddy's bedtime storiesV" Jack said. "No, be cause auntie told us stories while you were gone." But Evelyn said, "She did not tell them as well as you do, daddy." "Well," said daddy, "it does make a difference how a story Is told. I oote heard about two men who told exactly the same thing in the same words, but the way In which they told it made all the difference In the world. "These two men once went out together for a long walk through a beauti ful country. One man went ouly to pass away the time, for he bad nothing else to do. The other man went out to see and to learn. "When the men returned to their homes the people gathered to bear about their experiences. 'What did you see in your long walk?' they asked. Tell us what beautiful things you met In the world.' "The man who saw only with his eyes and not with his mind answered first. He spoke in a slow, drawling tone, as though he was tired and did not care to talk. 'Oh, I saw green trees and blue skies, hills, plains, streams, birds and Bowers.' He said it as though it was hard work for him to speak the words, and the people believed that he really had not seen anything at all that was worth talking about. "Then they turned to the other man. His face was bright, and his words were eager, and he spoke as though he was glad to describe what be had seen I in the big, beautiful world. When they asked him, 'And what did you see In your long walk?' he replied quickly: "'I saw green trees—and blue skies—bills—streams—birds—and BowersT To each word he gave a sound as though he loved to speak about the things— as though in telling about them they rose again before his eyes, and be tried to give to the people who heard him an Idea of hgy beautiful each bird and tree and flower was, and how much he had enjoyed seeing them himself, mid how he wished the others to see them as he himself bad done. And the people said that they cvkl almost see the trees wave In the breeze, see the pretty brooks-sparkle in the sun and ripple over the stones and hear the songs of the birds in the air. 80 they said to the second traveler: "'What a perfectly splendid time you must have had In your walkl How we all wish wo could have been with you!' "And yet the words which the second traveler spoke so Joyously were exactly the same as those which the first man had used." SheUctlfouMttf!
