Several people brought tier household furniture. She finds it impos sible to get steady work. She has twn children dependent upon her. She could I get house work if she would remain over j night. So she asks if any charitable or ganization could place the children in the country for the summer or If some farmer would take them and give her a chanc( to make a little money during the sum mer. The girl is 13 and the boy 7. They are in great need, the mother especially, of clothing. GRACE D.“ The pitiful case Is laid before compas sionate members as the friend of the des titute family set it down. Whatever is done for the sufferers should be done at once; the summer is flying fast. There are dozens of fresh a4r societies that con template the relief of children pent up within city walls and benevolent farmers who may come to the rescue. I hold the writer’s address. Helping Two Invaiids “You may remember the Majorie L., who asked for a wheel chair. I got into communication with her at once and re ceived a charming letter, in which she informed me that her dear brother was well and back at work. I rejoiced with her, and I now will try the other address you sent to me for a wheel chair. I do hope to have the extreme pleasure of helping you to a small degree in the good work. Mrs. F. F. askes lor a pair of crutches. What a strange coincidence! I was thinking of writing to ask if you ever had an inquiry for crutches, when I sawr the request in the Corner. I have a pair 'I will gladly pass on if you will send me the address 6f the woman. / “ELIZABETH fi.” A letter that relieves somewhat/ the tension upon the heart strings consequent upon reading the sorrowful tale which preceded it. Addresses have gone by mail to our ministering spirit, but I would have readers know* what manner of workers our coadjutors are. Sugar In Starch When Ironing “I, or, rather, we—the whole family have been benefieted by your dear Corner. We received a splendid set of encyclope dias and other good books. L have written thanks to all that responded to my .re quest. I wish I could help some one. Maybe some one would like to know that a little sugar put into starch will make the clothes iron much nicer. Again, 1 thank you for the kindness in getting us hooks. Should any one offer a dictionary or music, and there is some to spare, please give us some. E. W. W.“ We echo the hope with full hearts fer vently. The gift you received is valuable and we are glad you appreciate it. Should there he a dictionary and music to spare, we will lejj you know when your appeal is read. Looking After Many “Sunday I visited and took a book to a poor person whose husband is ont of work and she lies with a fractured knee. Then 1 visited Mrs. L\, whom you asked me to take upon my* list. She wi ote such a splendid letter. So cheerful and all. They were not at home, but‘I left a note and some magazines and shall try and help her in the coming sickness that she must go through. Two books went this morning, together with numerous letters. 1 made three calls to get positions and met with encouragement. 1 am also in touch with Mr. C., who offered violin les sons. Nurse B. was grateful for the offer of the baby buggy. I called upon Grace K, and she said the offer of the baby car riage came as frorp heaven. She had been trying to locate one for two weeks for a mother who had had hers stolen. Viit ginia S., the girl of 14 with whom you put me in touch and who has never taken a step in her life, is the happiest girl in the world. She took her first step between her father’s arms two weeks ago Sun day, and he is making her a ‘walker’ like those children use. Isn't God good? Her father’s letter says they are all happier, and their business is much better. Since writing you I am in touch with J. R., who is serving four years in state prison. T am going to try, through my dear brother, to get him a place where he can get a new start and grip on life, burying the past. If he is paroled in October, as he hopes to be, we will help him. God help him! G. D.” This sweet smelling savor—a very feast of fat thing, comes as might be-guessed, from our accredited home missionary, G. D. Her labor of love includes not only prayers “for prisoners and captives,’’ but active, practical work in their behalf. She gets a portion and a gracious share of her reward in the consciousness that she has shed sunshine into shady places. For the full compensation she must wait until the earthly mission is finished. It is gathering interest all the time. Wants to Wrcar Mourning Those of us who have felt to the quirk the painful incongruity of being forced to wear bright colors when our hearts were torn by sorrow will not cavil at the peti tion conveyed in the next letter. Reason members of the Ensley Highland Forty two club at her home. Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Hilleke and family arc enjoying a motor trip through Ten nessee and Kentucky. The many friends of Mrs. J. H. Eubank will regret to learn that she is seriously ill at her home. Mrs. E. A. Me Caleb will be hostess nt an informal party Thursday evening to honor i lie* guest. Miss Virginia Ireland. Mr. and Mrs. D. S. Carr of Memphis are guests of Mr. and Mrs. M. P. Dona hue. I I The Fearful and Wonderful Variety of Things Which Are Taught Nowadays, By DOLLY DALRYMPLG ID you ever stop to think about the variety of things which ai e f taught nowadays, not only* to the young, the willing and the unwil ling beneficiaries, or victims of our ( ducational system, but also to any one else who may crave instructions? We are, as a rule, a people desirous of obtaining knowledge. A great deal of it is intended for the ‘head and stays there, but at present a great deal more seems to be adapted to and practiced by our toes and heels. Whatever we learn, or even partly understand, appeals to fill us with a desire to impart some of the knowl edge to another, and we are quite like ly to look about for pupils. Teaching something to somebody is really a new and highly contagious disease; its area is ever widening and no one knows today whether he may or 'may not by tomorrow be taking lessons in knitting or practicing the newest and most up-to-date step in dancing. It has interested me to look up a few of the things which are being taught as what we might call “extras,” or post-graduate studies, and before enumerating'them, I may say en pas sant, that I am entirely in sympathy v\ ith many of the ideas and thoroughly believe in the wisdom of anybody learn ing anything he wishes and has time j to perfect. On a list before me there is a “School j for Social Workers.” It’s aim is to teach people to become j recreation and playground directors, and those who may be inclined to i "sniff” at such a thing can just stop and consider for a moment that it is no I easy matter to teach children how to play intelligently, for it can’t be done without training—hence the school. ' Next come “Secretarial Schools,” and j Portia "Daw Schools" for women. Then there are “Cooking Schools,” or at least 1 hope they are, although they appear under such news names as “Schools for Housekeeping,” “ Schools of Domestic Science,” or “Le Cordon Bleu,” frequently as among the last the French idea being injected. “Culture (or is it kultur?) Classes" abound which aim "to overcome self consciousness,” and one woman (a col lege graduate) "guarantees to make the j English classics interesting.” ns we win. the longing to wear mourning J is natural and worldwide. Let those who j cannot comprehend, at least respect it. The friend who writes of this is in fullest sympathy with the feeling; j "I have on my mind a dear, sweet (woman who lives not far from me. It ; seems that she has had more than her ; share of sorrow. On the 28th of January her father died; on the 25th of February her 18-year-old son. She wants to wear mourning and feels that she should, but j « n account of these hard times she can’t j buy the necessary things. If this is not i asking too much of the dear readers of j the Corner and anyone who has a black j skirt, black hat and veil, a waist, etc., | that she no longer wants, it would be a | great kindness to send them to thisNlear i woman. She is appreciative and stands : ready to lend a helping hand in any way that she can. It will be a great surprise tc her and will be more than appreciated. I have a recipe fqr cucumber pickles that i*.' fine. Also, tomato soup. They may be had by the asking for them. ^ “MRS. C. C. H." Joins a Hiking Club j “I have received the several letters you sent me with regard to the "hiking club," and I expect to join one of these clubs shortly. I have written thanking all who answered my inquiry, with the. exception of one who gave no address. "ALICE T." Pork Cake "You will probably tell me that the recipe I inclose is clean out of season. But we are fond of pork cake, the recipe for which I inherited from my English grandmother and one cold, rainy day last week when we had to have a fire in the grate of the living room in our cottage in the woods wo enjoyed it so much that 1 send it in for the benefit of other camp ers in uncertain weather; One cup of fat perk, cut line or chopped; two eggs, on*, cup of sultana raisins, two cups of brown sugar, half cuj) of buttermilk, one spoon of soda, two cups of flour, one spoon of < Innamon. Bake in a loaf in a moderate oven. M. B." Tn our climate of sudden and extreme variations it is not safe tq say that any dish is out of season. In the middle states, for instance, the thermometer on the longest day of the^ enr (June 21—the summer Solstice) dropped to 52 degrees Fahrenheit and stood there for 12 hour?. Your pork cake would have wrought n little needed carbon into the chilled sys tem of rirm family at least. Hot chocolate v. as more seasonable than iced sherbet that week. Some New Sandwiches "Will you give us a recipe for a few new sandwiches? We have them day In and day out. at luncheon and afternoon tea. and we .have exhausted our list of va rieties. GLADYS W." Lettuce mayonnaise sandwiches: Cut Boston brown bread into thin slices. But ter one slice and lay on ft a lettuce leaf dipped into mayonnaise dressing and put another layer of buttered bread on top. Should the lettuce protrude clip it neatly with sharp scissors. Olive and cheese kjindwiohes—Chop a dozen stoned olives fine. Rub a cream cheese to a paste with the minced olives and spread between buttered crustlcss slices of bread cut thin Club sandiches, No. 1—Cut the crust from a round of sandwich bread before slicing, cut the bread into slices one-half inch thick arid toast quickly and lightly. Mix a slightly beaten osrg with a jar of club cheese, seasoning with a pinch of salt and one of red pepper. Spread the bread well with this mixture and lay upon each slice three pieces of crispy fried bacon. Put under the broiler of a gas range >r in a hot oven in a coal range until (he cheese is melted. Serve hot. Club sandwiches. No. 2—Toast slices of stale bread from which the crust has been pared to a light brown, and while they are hot spread with butter. When all are buttered lay upon each slice a lettuce leaf, a slice of cold chicken, a few finely chopped olives, n slice of hot, crisply fried bacon, and overfall spread mayon naise dressing. Finally cover with the second slice of toast. Cheese and nut sandwiches: Pound English walnut meats fine and mix with equal parts of grated American cheese. Moisten with sweet thick cream: season with salt and a dash of paprika and spread upon slices of thinly buttered bread. Graham bread is especially nice for these. T might go on Indefinitely with species of the genus sandwich, but the quintette may serve your turn for the present. Belt for One in Need "I have an ahdomitml belt, Eize 38. al most new, which I will be pleased to send to some one who Is In need of one that .size. D. C.” | Not half so much pleased as we are to have It In hand. Certainly not one-tenth ae much delighted as the aforesaid one In need will be In learning what Is your benevolent intent. May heaven reward you. Ole Miss, er Man is alius anxious fer his Wife ter have a pretty, trim figger, while she, in turn, is jes’ as anxious fer him ter have sev eral large, fat ones! Yassum! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••■••••••••••••••a** There are schools for parlor maids, ladies' maids, nurse maids, and ever places where a "butler” is taught to "buttle” properly. Millinery and dressmaking classes are as common as blackeyed peas, while "atheltics" of all kinds and de scriptions are taught. "Pantomine and Folk Dancing," as well as "Athletic and Modern Dancing’ are classed under the same head prac tically, for it certainly takes an ath letic turn of mind to enable one to be come light of foot. Of course, as might he expected, there are many "fads” among the num ber one which I happened to hear of Recently tyeing a "School for Develop ing Personality.” This is particularly appealing as most of us are conceited enough to believe tfiTat we have much latent ability which only needs to be railed out and cultivated in order to make us either famous of self-satisfled. When we have acquired some under standing of our own personalities and have begun exercising them>-in other words, when we have become egotists, then we begin to detect flaws in those former friends and companions who have not kept abreast of the times as we have. 9 1 think it was Henry Ward Beecher who gave the good advice that every one should maintain a fair-sized ct*mo tar.v in which to bury the faults of their friends. It seems very human, to criticise, for 1 .. .. instance a slay-at-nome, or one who doesn’t happen to enjoy dancing be tween the dinner courses. If you possess or happen to he cul. tivating a reposeful manner, nothing irritates you to criticism sooner Ilian a garrulous friend whose talk Hows on like the babbling brook, with just as inexhaustible supply. * Robert Hugh Benson, in his "Jriitla* tion,” speaks of just such a person—a woman of course—although 1 must say I have known men whose conversa tional powers were just as tireless, once they were set In motion. Father Benson cleverly gives as the reason for the torrent of words, which nothing could check or still, that the woman only'said out loud what other people thought. Every one. he adds, has foolish and inconsequent trains of thought, but not every one manifests them. There are some of the new fads and schools which our friends and relatives have taken up that are harder to bear with than others, and 1 feel that it is only necessary, In order to explain just v.hat I mean by this, to quote the old Italian proverb which I am sure will strike a sympathetic, chord in many a comprehending heart, which says*; "God save me from a had night and a beginner 'on the fiddle."
