WOMEN AND SOCIETY The Roaemakera Include Juvenile Society Folk THE DAY’S EVENTS Box Party and After Theatre Supper. Luncheon and Dinner for a Visi tor—Prominent People A mong the Visitors—Box Party p - , By MYRTLE MII.ES Listening to the strident chatter of a Bltnder woman on the carTesterday as ahe explained how completely tired, un nerved and wretched she was after a day's shopping, I wondered it the great er part of her fatigue was not caused by an undisciplined voice. An English writer on this subject says that some day. when It becomes even more impor tant than at present to conserve every bit of nervous force we possess, a clever woman will organize a class for disciplin ing the voices, tho conversation, and the gestures of all the people who suffer from "nerves.” And she would probably make her fortune. There is a prevalent idea that there is only one cure for all the People with nervous breakdowns—and that Is rest. The well to do who are ner vously inclined revel in periodic rest cures and never seem to face the fact that they are not really cured at all. Those who have not the leisure or the money for such expensive treatment reconcile themselves in mistaken martyr dom to their “nerves.” The rest cure is only a temporary expedient, like the drug. The nerves are soothed for the time being, but ten chances \o one they relapse, more often sooner than later. And yet if “nerves” is the commonest complaint of modern men and women, It is one that can be both cured and pre vented. The cause of all the trouble Is wrong living, above all, wrong thinking. Observe the average nervous woman f'r live minutes, and you will note three pe culiarities: (1) A high pitched, rapid speaking voice; (2) the lack of what may be called “concentration”; (3) constant movement. The high voice is heard at its worst in America, where the mere fact of listen ing to half a dozen women chattering on any subject is fatiguing, even when one makes no effort to follow their conversa tion. All nervous women have not shrill voices, it is true, but the commonest type of nerves is characterized by a shap, stdfnet enunciation which tires both speaker and hearer. "I am always so tired,” says this type cf woman, who wastes precious energy that could be put to useful work in talk ing. talking, talking, from morning to night. She may say nothing important, nothing very interesting. She may not even enjoy talking, but she has developed i the habit of constantly giving expression j in everything that passes through her mind, and all the time she is losing ner \ ous energy, precious vitality. I*ots of really able people dissipate their vitality in the same way, and two hours’ silence in every waking day would cure a vast number of nervous disorders in itself. SMALL FLOWER MAKERS WORKING FOR CHARITY BALL While grown up committees are holding tlielr meetings to make roses for the charity ball, five little girls on Underwood hill are holding almost daily sessions, to curl and twist and glue the fluffy pink tissue into the semblance of rosebuds, thus doing their share toward effecting the pictorial success of the big post-Len ten ball. The quintette Includes Miss Margaret Calhoun, daughter of Mr. Rnd Mrs. Charles Calhoun, Miss Virginia Foster and MIfs Josephine Foster, daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Sterling Foster, Miss Louise Weakley, daughter of Judge and Mrs. Samuel D. Weakley, and Miss Vir ginia Adams. Their roses are a triumph of natural ness and beauty, and they have become so adept, little time Is required in which to convert sheets of pink paper Into roses lacking fragrance only. At their after noon meetings, after making candy or otherwise amusing themselves for a s/iat 1. they busy themselves so earnestly as to leave the charity ball the richer by several dozen roses when dusk sends tliem to their several homes.

This little coterie meets at intervals^for study of art, pursued in a spirit of co-operation, each member be ing an avowed lover of art, but counting herself not in any sense its critic. In addition to the club personnel Mrs. McAdory augmented tlie party yesterday with a group of outside friends, and the afternoon was, consequently, especially enjoyed. In the decorative appointments and the service of ices and cakes tlie spirit of St. Patrick’s day whs noted. Ices in the semblance of shamrocks and cakes em-1 bossed with St. Patrick inscriptions paid a tempting tribute to Ireland’s patron , saint. The subject of study for the after noon was “Art and Artists of Tuscany and Umbria.” Mrs. S. H. Gardner was the leader and tiie meeting was con ducted by Mrs. Gus McCarty, in the ab- 1 pence of Mrs. W. K. McAdory, the pres ident, MR. AND MRS. SIBLEY ARE HOSTS AT DINNER Mr. and Mrs. Grigsby T.

Only members of the family were asked to meet Mrs. Daw. and the occasion as sumed the chaining significance of a re union. The decorative appointments of the ta ble were after tlie St. Patrick Day color motive—and shamrock and other green-. ery made a fresh and decidedly effective I arrangement for the plates. In the center' | of the white cloth rested a basket of I spiraea from beneath which broad lengths I of green satin ribbon extended to either end of the table, to be attached there with a large bow. The dainties served as adjuncts to an excellent menu, em phasized the St. Patripk motive and those who took part In the pleasure of -4he evening were Mr. and Mrs. J$lbley, Mrs. Law’, Mrs. W.

After trying different treatments without them helping me, I was told that I had better go to the hospital. Before going I made up my mind to try.Cardul, the woman's tonic, and before I had taken half of the first bottle I could see I was getting better, and before the second bottle was gone I felt better than I had for nine years. I am still taking Cardul, and would ] % not be without It; In fact, I believe 1 ■ would rather be without bread. I would advise every woman suffer ing from any kind of womanly trouble to take Cardul.’’ If you suffer from any of the pain* so common to women, such as head ache, backache, sideache, nervousness, sleeplessness, etc, or If you need a good, strengthening tonic for that tired, worn-out feeling, give Cardul, the woman's tonic, a trial.

March 11.—(Special.)— All Indications point to the appoint ment of John Emory Conner to suc ceed as postmaster W. Scott Raulston, who recently resigned to accept the position as secretary of the Chamber of Commerce. Conner was campaign manager fdfc* Congressman John A. Moon during the election in November, and according to precedent should re ceive the office as the appointment of postmasters is invariably left to the congressman of the district in ques tion for ratication. Moon has an nounced that Conner is his choice. Several other names have been men tioned, and it is rumored that a formi dable opponent to Conner is to appear within the next few days as a dark horse, but this is mere rumor. Post master Raulston resigned March 4, al though he still had a year to serve. He has been connected with the local office as assitant postmaster and post master since 1897, first entering the postal service under R. S. Sharp.

As the procession passed along Pennsylvania avenue the Mlssisslpfdun danced out to the edge of the line, took off his hat and shook hands with every good looking woman in the procession that he could reach. They did their best to get him in line, but he declined with thanks, telling them ho was already bald headed. / FAVOR MRS.

Add three-fourths cup boiling water, one lardge lump butter; beat, add two egg yolks, and beat again. Put on stove and cook until thick, then pour Into a crust which has been baked. Beat the whites of the eggs stiff with two tablespoons sugar, spread on top of pie and brown In oven.—Kindness Mrs. C. E. P. Plum Butter ■\V«eh the plums carefully and cook In sufficient water to cover well until soft. Pour off Juice and place on stove with an equal amount of sugar and boil until you can run the plums through a colander. After doing this put pulp with boiling Juice, which by this time has become a thick sirup, which will hold up the pulp and pre vent its sticking to kettle. Add more sugar, boll to the proper consistency, stirring occasionally.—Kindness of Mrs. D. S. C. Way to Mend Broken Window “'I wish to let you know that I re ceived the abdominal belt from Mrs. R. B. B. She was so kind about It that she even sent it to me by mail, regis tered. I shall return the stamps. I never saw such kind hearts to strang ers as are found in your Helping Hand Corner. They stir tilings up! "Magazines, which you were the means of my getting last winter from the Cornerites, are at the disposal of any one who would like to have them. "Will you kindly tell me what is good for a dry shampoo, as my hair Is dry and gets dusty, as we use a furnace. I cannot wet my hair In win ter. "t will give you several hints; "A good way to peel pineapple Is to hold the pineapple by the top, lay sideways on the table, and use a sharp butcher's knife to cut it into five or six slices. Then the slices can be peeled quite easily as pineapple is bulky to handle. io niena a cracKea window; Take two horn buttons (like those on chil dren's waists, with large holes), put on each side of the glass, where the cracks stop and come together, Put fine spol wire or strong string in and out through the holes of the buttons several times, fastea on the inside of the window by tying, I have had a window fixed so for a year and it still holds tightly. “Please excuse my taking up so much time for the little I have to of fer, W, G. H.” If time Is valuable, so are such let ters as yours. I am sure the reading matter will be appreciated. It does us good to hear that you will “pass on” the magazines from last winter to some one less fortunate than your self. And It also helps us to know that we have helped you. I have not omitted your pery with regard to a “dry shampoo,” for It gives me an opportunity to emphasize the fact that such questions are not with in my province. The Corner does not pretend to answer questions pertain ing to the care of the hair or complex ion, or, In fact, any of the queries which should be sent to the depart ment dealing with what are known as “beauty matters.” The editor of that department can doubtless answer your question. Your Idea of fastening together the broken halves of a window pane is new to me and I fancy it will be to many readers. Wants a Rhyming Dictionary “I should like to have a rhyming dictionary, but am unable to get one. If any of the readers have one to part with I should appreciate it very much. What do you Want for It, or what can I do in return? M. F.” We hope you will revolve the rhy n ing dictionary. We ask nothing in re turn except your interest in the Cor ner and your willingness to “pass on” any good word and any bit of help that Is within your power to give. Needs Linen Bandages “I have a stubborn sore on my foot that doesn’t heal. Jf any of the Cor nerltes have old sheets, pillow cases, etc., that they no longer use and that they will send me for bandages, I shall bo thankful. MRS. E. B.” I can almost promise that you w’ill receive the cloths you need so sadly. Housewives and mothers are always ready to “lend a hand” in such a case as yours. And may I take this occa sion to ask once more that corre spondents will ■write to me for the ad dress of this sufferer, instead of send ing me the linen and muslin to be | forwarded to her? Companion on Farm “I notice a request of Mrs. S. J., stating that she lives on a large farm and would like a middle aged woman 1 i to live with her. I have & home here J and should like to have her write me particulars concerning her request. I make my own living ‘and should be ! pleased to have her write to me. “C. A.” Unfortunately there was a flaw In the address of Mrs. S. J., and letters sent to the street and number which, she gave were returned marked “not found." So I cannot put you into <^tn munication w’ith her. But I gladly publish your letter in the hope that Mrs. S. J. may see it or that some other reader wishing a congenial mid dle aged companion on her farm may take advantage of your offer. Of course, references must be asked and given before such an arrangement could be satisfactorily completed. Offers Paper Dolls “Has the canary that was offered been given away? I want one very much. I have never done anything for the Corner. I have a great many paper dolls to give away to a shut-in or a poor child. M. M.“ Yes, the canary and several other P*ts have been given aw*ay, and nu more birds have been offered. Should any reader have a canary she does not care to keep I hope you may become the happy owner of it. The paper dolls will he applied for, and we thank you for* your thought of our “shut-in or'poor children." Lonely One Wants Visitors “I have been sick more or less for the last eight or nine years, and am only 81, and just about ready to be come frantic on account of being shut in and having hours to pass alone. Would some one be willing to come to me out of pure charity for a few hours and see me and chat with me? I am very lonely. MRS. J. O. S." You do not tell me in wlmt city you live. Will you not notify me at. once that I may hold your address? 1 con* dently evxpeot requests for it. Our Corner]tea are never backward in re membering the injunction with regard t othose who are “sick and in prison." Tiie “prison" need not b<* of necessity a place for the confinement of evildoers. Many a prety room has become a pris on—nay, a chamber of torture, for tho por sufferer bound by pain to dwell there. Let those of us who are blessed with the health that allows us to take God’s fresh air as our due remember those who are ‘‘shut in,” and gi va them a glimpse of brightness and joy. A visit from a cheery outsider would bring to many a poor sufferer a gleam of joy. For— “In loving human faces God’s sunshine visits saddened places.'" Unable to Walk “My father Is sick and unable to walk. Ho has had his foot lanced four times and had an operation performed on It. He has no ankle and needs crutches badly. I will thank you a thousand timeB for the crutches, be cause we are poor and unable to buy them for him. If 1 knew where to get him a pair I should not bother any one to send them to me, I would call for them. M. E'. Jl.“ I need add no appeal of mine to the above. It speaks for itself. I hold the address of the daughter who writes on her father's behalf. THERE IS A LOT of satisfaction in laying out money for anything you know in your heart and soul to be absolutely dependable.
