MISS JULIA C. LATHROP, FINE
“COUNSEL FOR THE DEFENSE,” OF THE AMERICAN BABY First Woman Who Has Ever Been Appointed Head of a Federal Bureau—“Right Hand Man’’ of Miss Jane Addams at Hull House for Many Years and One of the Five “Maiden Aunts” Whom Chicago Claims—Staunch Suf fragist—A Little Story n> DOUY DALRYMPLE i A Pen and Ink “Sketch” of Miss Julia C. Lathrop TThen I went to see Miss Julia C. Ua ♦ hrop, the first woman who has evei been appointed head of a federal bureau, 1 had a vague sort of idea that her work was that of disseminating information about the care and feeding of infants; a kind of large, Impersonal Goddess of> Motherhood, as it were, to whom all the j mothers all over the land might apply for Information, usually asked first hand from the family physician. But It isn’t so. Miss Uathrop is doing her work in a national way. In time it may grow to where she may be. called upon by any one of the mil lions of mothers in the United States to ask “if Sammy should be given this to eat,” or “if little Sally might be trusted • with this to drink.” but at present she Is working as the head of a bureau, under which thousand* of societies all over the country organized to the same end—the conservation of child life—act as auxil iaries. It has taken Uncle Sam a long time to ' realize the value of child life. Only within the last year has the posi tion which Miss Uathrop occupies been of ficial. If you were interested in pigs, lo«g ago you knew that the United States govern ment stood prepared to give bulletin upon bulletin about pigs, so that you could pay your money and take your choice. Also— Jf you were Interested in fish, you could Call on Uncle Sain for information about jliow to hatch and care for prize fish. Then, too— If you want to know about trees, and bugs, and corn, and potatoes, the govern ment w’as ready and willing to give you ell the information you needed on these subjects—and dozens of others—but as for babies, well, they w'ere evidently not con sidered. Xow since Miss Julia Uathrop, who for years was Miss Jane Addams’ “right hand man” at Hull House, and one of the "‘five maiden aunts” whom Chicago claims r-and now maiden aunt to all the little citizens of the United States—has been put In charge of this department where the birth of a baby is registered, just like at it big hotel, and deaths recorded, why, the baby industry has been put on the list of j "’necessities,” and a thriving business it j Is to be sure. "The children's bureau,” said Miss Jstthrop, as she chatted with me about her work, "is In the department of which ^Secretary William H. Wilson is the |iead." "And what primarily Is its purpose?" 1 asked. "It is the duty of the bureau," said Mips Da t hr op, "to look after all matters pertaining to the child and child life. That is the word of the law, and the first medium through which we will work is Infant mortality. It is impossible to know accurately the degree of Infant mortality in this country, because only in a part of the country are records kept of births and deaths.” "Doesn't the census bureau look after that?" I asked, thinking that not even a sick cat or a crippled chicken ever es caped the census man. The census bureau cannot cover thin field entirely," said Miss Lathrop, "since the census is taken only once every ten years. Dast year It was estimated that at least three hundred thousand babies, less than a year old, died in the United States and that at least half of the deaths, were caused on account of im proper care, lack of proper nourish ment and neglect. Such a statement Is a challenge lo humanity, the common sense alike of every one who cares for human life.” "The census bureau,” Miss I-athrop "Just Say" HORLICK’S ft Means Original and Genuine MALTED MILK The Food-drink for All Ages.

All it can do is to try to find out the best way of living and publish this in a popular man ner. The bureau has the power of in vestigation and publicity, and this power, is at the service of any state, city, or, individual. At present the bureau is pre paring a series of monographs of the care of babies and children for distribu tion.” , "The co-opcration of every state, T fan cy is necessary to make the children's bureau a success, is it not?” I asked. “The co-operation of every state.” sakl Miss Hathrop, “in regard to uniform methods <»f registration of life and death , laws, which will enable the government j to prepare vital statistics, will be of great assistance, for this is needed as a foundation for humanitarian and ed ucational efforts for children. Tn one of our pamphlets issued from the bureau information as to 1 lie* necessity narticu-, larly of birth registration is emphasized. ^ not as a remote abstraction, but a prac tical, everyday way of safeguarding the life and rights of the child.” It was Miss Julia C. Lathrop who was i largely responsible for the passing of the Illinois juvenile court law and was also influential in the passing of the child labor law. Her activities extended when she was a member of the Illinois board of charities, to amelioration of conditions of the insane asylums, where she con sidered the environments unwholesome, i Miss Hat hr op is an ardent suffragist and when I mentioned this she said quickly: “Why shouldn’t I be? Father and mother before mo were in hearty sympa thy with suffrage." Apropos of Miss Lathrop’s position to ward suffrage I love t lie clever little story that is told about her, which I mentioned, and she declared had been attributed to her, but actually belonged to some one else—a clever, young demo cratic politician in Chicago. Anyway, the story is a good one. Tt seems that at a brilliant party in Chicago one evening, Miss Hathrop was discussing suffrage with one of her men friends who was quite willing to con cede her grasp of political issues, but “hedged" when it came to the point where she tried to persuade him that woman suffrage might he a good thing. "If all women. Miss Hathrop,” said he, "were as brilliant and clever, and as valuable to the state ns you are. there might he something in your argument. Hut look at the other side of it. The average woman is not qualified for the vote. For instance, do you think your cook, intelligent enough to vote.” “\ don’t know about That,” said Miss f,athrop with n twinkle in her bright, flashing, brown eyes, "but he does vote.” Many of the women may not he quali fied to cast a vote intelligently, but there’s one thing certain ami sure, pre vious few of us are so benighted that we don't know a big. honest, whole-souled, fine woman when we meet her, and IT Miss Bathrops past record is any Indi cation of her future, then every woman In the 1’nited States can safely point with pride to this splendid woman who holds the ImOortant possltlon of "coun sel for the defense" of the American baby!

The same recipe ; can be-used for sweet milk, omitting the .soda. («ood Riddance for Moths "Here Is a help for the housewife who wanted to know a good riddance for moths and buffalo bugs: Close tightly all cracks and cnevices and openings of all kinds. Stretch high In the room a clothesline, on which hang all the clothes, etc., from the closets. Spread them as much as possible. If the closet Is large and the i room in which the clothes are hung use two old metall palls or kettles. Set them several inches from the floor on bricks or place on tumato cans. In each put a generous shovelful of live coals. When ! everything is in readiness put an ounce; of camphor gum on the glowing coals Just before leading the room. Close cracks of door after leaving. eLave the room closed up for *»alf a day if possible. This will not injure colors in hanging or wall paper. Care must be taken that noth ing can take fire flrom the coals. I cut my daughter's shirt-waists from the good, unfaded portions of my husband’s shirts, the neckbands aJi4 cuffs being too worn to be presentable in the office. This saves me the trouble of making button holes and sewing on buttons. Those tine .madras shirts made pretty shirtwaists. ' M. D. A. These directions for'burning camphor for banishing moth and buffalo hugs are like those for burning sulphur for the same purpose In that it does not discolor gUt picture frames, etc., as sulphur does. Formaldehyde burned in the same way lias a deadly effect upon insects of all kinds. The only objection to camphor for this purpose is that it is rather expensive and a good deal of It must he used If j the roon»\ fumigated is a large one. Will mothers Who make their daughters' clothes, a.s well as thie daughters who make their own summer dresses, note the suggestion nvlth regard to utilizing men s shirts?

When one must, make fruit salad or fruit cocktails in large quantities this knowledge will be helpfu?. Of course, the • peeled fruit must be chilled thoroughly before using. Food for the Gods "I saw that some one fn the Helping Hand Corner said that my pet lemon pie was 'the dandiest of all lemon pies.' I use enough bread to cover well the lemon and crust—sometimes I use oranges In stead of lemons, or just the juice of either in the custard. Sometimes when 1 use only the juice I put in a plentiful quantity of sliced banana. This Is food for the gods! " YANKEE HOUSEMOTHER.” Will readers who have tried the "dan diest of lemon pies” and found it de lightful remember the additional "touch” suggested by the originator of the des sert? Substitutes for Raisins "To prevent meringue from becoming tough when cool beat Into It a generous pinch of baking powder. Have the o\Tn hot. This makes a lovely, light meringue and does not Impair the flavor. Since none of my family likes raisins what can I use ns a substitute In cake, cookies, and pur ding where these are called for? What will remove scorch from white flannel? The scorch show’s on the wrong side. I km always watching for a chance to help and hope some one will find the sugges tions I give helpful. We w ill remember and act on your sug gestion anent meringue for pies. Do the family like citron? If s$. use that in stead of raisins, or, If they do not object to currants, these may act as substitutes. One woman clips large Turkish prunes Into ldts, dredges them with flour and puts them in her cake instead of raisins. Try sponging the scorched spot with alco hol. If this fails, try ether or chloro form. We arc always glad to hear from you find we appreciate warmly your in terest in our Corner. Trio of Useful Hints No. 1. “Clothes become yellow by using too much soap. Wash in the usual way, put them to soak over night in clear cold water in whfch cream of tartar has been added—a teaspoonful to a quart of water is about the right proportion. Well ironed, they will be as white as snow. Another recipe is to soak the clothes for twenty-four hours in clabbered milk or buttermilk after being washed. “M. D. H.” No. 2. “I know’ you like to receive household suggestions, so I send some. For a long time I ‘have been intending to send this remedy to remove ink stains from white goods. It has been approved by an eminent chemist. Ammonia re moves ink from the hands. To remove ink stains from white goods soak the spots for half an hour in vinegar rinse, and put into a solution of chloride of lime (prepared according to recipe on can) until spots disappear. Tf the stains are old the solution must be strong. Rinse in plenty of cold water to remove all the lime. No. 3. “For baking powder biscuits half as much milk as fiour is just enough. Beat with a spoon and it thickens^ A large amount of cakes are from the t>ld fashioned—-one cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour, one cup of milk, four eggs. One can see at once, if a recipe says more flour, It is wrong, unless the other ingredients are changed. If remembered in this order they art clear. These things have been a help to me in teaching maids. Just now, as I have had much experience myself, I find maids are glad to come to me and be taught, and r think those of us who have kept house many years can do nothing* better than to teach the ignorant girlt who come to our land to be good helpers, and afterward he good wives and moth ers. E. R.” This is a trio of useful hints, given In full because they are so good. I would, myself, emphasize what “E. R.“ says with regards to rinsing out the chloride of lime from the ink stained material. Do not he satisfied with rinsing in one water, thinking that this will take out the chemical. Wash Instead thoroughly In three waters, at least, for if the de tersive remain in the fabric it will sure ly eat Into It. It may not do so quickly, so that you can see the effect at once, but It will gradually rot or disintegrate the threads so that in a little while a hole will appear where the ink stain once w’as. How to Make Polishing Cloth “Here are directions for making silver polishing clolh I cut from the helping hand corner: Two ounces pow’dered hart shorn (carbonate of ammonia) boiled in one pint of soft water. Dip suitable squares of soft muslin in the solution and hang to dry without wringing. When , dry fold closely. Simply rubbing the silver with a cloth so treated will bright en it wonderfully. If you have the name of any one wanting popular music I have some she or he can have. “Mr*. T. E. G.” Will those who have asked for a cloth that is “always ready” to rub silver ware clip the above from the corner and paste it in a book marked “Household Hints” so that they will have It at hand when wanted. 'We thank Mrs. T. E. G. for preserving hers so faithfully. And will those who dpslre the music she so thoughtfully adds to her contribution send in a stamped and self-directed en velope for her address?
