February t, 1982
DAY SACRED TO
LOVE MISSIVES
IT WAS nn enterprising young girl
who first captured the valentine
trade for America. Her name whs
Ksther Howlatid. After graduat
ing from Mount llnlynke seminary she
resided with her father, who was
stationer In Worcester, Mass. In 14
she received from Knglnnd manufac
tured valentine, the first she had ever
cen. It Interested her so much ttuit
she decided to we whether she could
make Home of these valentine and
find sale for them.
She collected aome lace paper, aome
printed verses and aentlinental pic
ture, fixed tip a few vnlcntlncs and
Bve them to her brother, who was a
traveling salesman for a grocery More.
To her amazement her brother re
turned with orders for $5,000 worth
of valentines! Her astonishment knew
no hounds. She quickly got together
aome girl friends, taught them what
she knew about valentines and com
menced a prosperous trade that was
to reach the one hundred thousand
dollar mark.
First Leva Missives.
It wai a Frenchman who first con
ceived the Idea of composing valen
tines In verse. Charles, Puke of Or
leans, was taken prisoner by the Eng
lish at the battle of Aglnooiirt. In 1415.
He was consigned to tl.e Tower of
London, where he spent the next twenty-five
yeara of his life. Rut the cold
walls of his dungeon could not com
pletely dampen his sentimental na
ture, and from his gloomy vault came
sunny little verses to the number of
sixty, which are still to be seen among
the royal papers In the staid old Brit
ish museum. One of them reads:
Wilt thou b mine? Dear love, reply
Sweetly consent or elee deny.
Whisper softly, none shall know
Wilt thou be mine, lore? Aye or bo?
Bptte of fortune we may be
Happv by one word from thee.
Ufe Hies swiftly. Ere it go.
Wilt thou be mine, love Aye or noT
England at once adopted the fad
which Its royal prisoner had set, and
Valentine's day found the coaches
more than usually laden with poetic
outpourings of lovers, friends and
even slight acquaintances.
Old Romance Recalled.
One of the most romnntlc histories
of Valentine children Is that of Lady
Sarah Lennox, bom on February 14,
1T45. In fact, she Apparently Inherited
a romantic temperament, for her own
story Is usually prefaced with a sketch
of her parents' romance by way of
driving home the story's admonition,
perhaps.
Her father's marriage was no more
nor less than a bargain to cancel a
gambling debt between the couple's
parents. The. young duke, then Lord
March, was brought home from col
lege to wed the plain little glrl-brlde
Just out of nursery. At the conclusion
of the ceremony the Indignant bride
groom fled to the continent with a
tutor In tow, .where he spent three
years. On his return to London he
carefully avoided going home, where
he fancied a wralhfnl young woman
was waiting to swoon at his arriMil.
Instead, he went straight to the
theatre and saw there a very hand
some lady. He cursed his luck, but had
breath left to ask who she might be.
"Lady March, the toast of the season."
informed his friends, to his utter us
tonlxhmrnt. Then he hlcxed his luck,
claimed his bride and as It turned out,
was very happy to the end. Her love
was so great, too, that she died of
grief for him after a year of widow
hood. Sentiment and Business,
Samuel I'ppys has something to say
In his famous dlnry about most of
Joys and disturbances, great and small,
with which human nature is acquaint
ed. Consequently one does not need to
search very far to find allusions to
Valentine'a day and the customary
pranka that It Involved In the Euglund
of the seventeenth century.
On February 14. 1007. the following
entry Is made In the diary:

America's Noted Valentin.
America's most noted valentine a as
Oeneral Wliifield Scott Hancock, born
February 14, 18:24. The witching In
llitcnce of the salot's festival hover
Ing about him manifested Itself In the
culmination of his romance. In her
"Itcmlnlseences," written In old age.
Mrs. Hancock (who was Miss Alinlra
Kussell) tells of her strange wedding
and proves that, after all, the Ameri
can girl has determination to rise
nhove sutierstllions.
To start with, her wedding dny was
one of the stormiest of the winter. It
hailed violently, thundered and blew
a perfect gale. During the ceremony
which was held at her father's home
In St. Louis, the lights went nut three
times and repeated the performance
at the wedding reception. The guests
were filled with terror for the young
bride who was beginning life under
such siiitgestlvely evil omens. And by
way of enhancing the evil Influences
rhat appeared to be abroad the crowd
outside the house got the word that
the bride was wearing a spun glass
dress, and their curiosity reached the
point of mob violence before the police
could beat them back to make room
for the passage of-gucsts.
Hut the bride laughed In the face
of these witches' pranks and lived to
share the honors tha. her husband's
career brought him.
CUPID'S OWN DAY
Fourteenth o' February Belongs
to Him Alone.
Anniversary Brightens the Drab Month
With Memories of tha Past and
Joy of the Present.
Brightening the dull, drab month of
February and doing their very best
to cheer up and bring Jove Into oflr
hearts, the valentines the valentines
smile at us with their lace-and-forget-me-not
daintiness from the .shop win
dows. There are elaborate "millionaire"
valentines of celluloid and blue ribbons
that come in big lace boxes, like
French dolls; there are valentines that
w hen pulled out like an accordion b
come Cinderella coaches of cardboard,
laden with Loves and Vequses and
Cupids. Others resolve themselves In
to airy plnk-and-blue palaces you
npver know peopled with delightful
goddesses and doves.
But the best and most sincere, per
haps, are the old-fashioned valentines
visits of fon my puier lace, through
which you look upon hearts redder
than lovers' Hps, Ln a prospect of vio
lets and forget-me-nots. And hidden
away, like a billet douz In a bouquet,
a little verse:
Thle heart. wM love, I send to you.
Together with these vlotete blue;
And If you like tills heart ot mine,
t pray you be my valentine. '
Could anything be more simple or
direct to the point? As unerringly as
Cupid's darts or a beau's rapier, the
verse carries Its message home. It
may be tlmt the Elizabethan lyrics,
the love songs of Herrlck and Love
luce and Suckling, survive today only
In the valentine.
And, ah, what memories these har
bingers of love bring with them! They
lead us back along the colutnblne
bordered road to yesterday, over the
asphodel meadows of Youth and First
Lore and Childhood Fancies, and we
meet and kiss our first sweethearts
again mIiis. they huve gone out of
our lives these uiuny years.
And h, dear 111 tit Valentine, accept
these violets und forget-me-nots, and
hug this message close to your heart
for surely a sweetheurt Is the sweeter
for a valentine, and, as all wise men
know, 'tis love that makes the world
go round.

By EDWARD B. CLARK
Washington. - The ItcptihlUuii ma
Jorlty In tin- M-uule is hammering ou'
the prohpecllve gold of the foieigu
debt funding bill into a glittering leg
lahitive sheet which will be warrant
ed to hold water. Of course this thing
Is a Ununclul mutter, and in nuance
east is cast and west Is west, though
why It should tie a geographical mut
ter, an aflair of latitude and longitude.
so to open k, mi layiuuu In Washington
reviiis thoroughly to understand. Such
is the fact, however, and what the
buses should be to luiilu (limners via
ble uie matters of varying prairie
and uif'anslde opinion.
The l(ciublicuns In the senate, hav
ing a lurtje majority over the Ileum
erutlc brethren, have been holding con
ferences. Appurenlly today no party
which liMp-us to be In the majority
In the senate feels safe in calling ail
old-time caucus In which each man
who entered virtually pledges himself
to abide by a majority decision. To
day they confer and come to purtial
agreements which are to be kept only
in case mine of the gentlemen pres
ent do not discover afterward that
there Is ample rrnsou to change their
uiiuds about the legislative program
projected, and elect, after explanation,
to stand In opposl-lou.
Apparently It Is now definitely as
sured that the senate will face some
kitid of a veterans' adjusted roiupen
gallon bill containing a cash payment
provision. It is not, however, dell
tiitely known whence ia to come the
money to pay the bills. Eventually,
probably, the cash payments to the for
mer soldiers wl'l be made from fund
collected from ' ireign debtors of Uncle
Sum. Kven U u proper bill for fund
ing the foreli i debt Is passed hy con
gress, there is no linal assurance
day when these funds will tie uvall
able.
Sales T.aa Still Opposed.
Senator M'Oiinln-r has assumed the!
leadership of the finance couimiuer j
lie probably will be held fn part per
Monally resHiiisiliie by (lie country
for the liiml fiHii which the bill fot
the funding of the foreign debt shall
assume, (if course, the republican
majority will be r"uiiislhle, but the
l'resldetit must take some of the bur
den, whctlur it be prulse or blame
because In a way be Is the (I rector lie
chief of the party's legislative actlvl
ties.
When the luxation measures first
were given consideration. Setiatot
Suioot of I'tah, who in a miy is tlx
real leader of the Republican majority
in the senate, stood as the ud vocal
of a sales tax. There wus greut op
IMisition. mill, appreciating Its force
and probably fimtl effect, .Mr. Smooi
uiuile 1 1. utiles in his proposal. He
won some few senators to his side,
but he could not get enough of theui
to carry the day.
There is still great opiMisliion to the
sales tux as a nieuns of racing addi
tional revenue. This kind of a tux
has been advocated, oppose!, praised
and damned alternately. Certain ele
meats In the inaiiufucturiiig communi
ties are opposed to it, and certain ele
ments in them are in favor of It, and
identically the same words can be
used to describe the feelings of tin
consuming musses.
Want to Try Something, Anyhow.
Who known? Mr, Siuoot auys he
knows, and other men in the setiute
say they know. The noii-legisla'or it
convinced by one argument and then
unconvinced by the rebuttal, and there
you go. Sometimes the wish la ex
pressed t tut t "uny old thing" might
be tried out in order to see how it will
work. Such la the yeitruitig for re
lief of some kind from tbue elements

The Itepubllcun majority in the sea
ate seems finally to believe that It see
the (Wed light of agreement among It
members and that the factional ab'ps
now can steer a clear course Into the
harbor of harmony. When the senate
convened last spring the Republican
had audi a great majority that there
was rejoicing among them becaust
they believed the way was clear and
no troublea could beset their helms
man or crew. Home storms came

and the aupposedly stanch vessel hu

of foundering. Now the Republican

It mil) set-ui strange for men who
"write for print" to suggest that the
printing bills of congress might be
tut down with advantage to the treas
ury und to the public, and perhaps
with advantage to some of the mem
bers themselves, for It is inconceivable
that more than a few of the congress
men gain anything by having their
l e lies "extended In the llecord."

of money each year to print and to

Malnutrition
Should tha daily paper reach your
door tomorrow morning; with the
headline, "Fire? All children in
danger of death! Hundreds crippled
for life! every parent would be
horror-stricken and every meant em
ployed to prevent another such catas
trophe. It is to prevent the spread
of an evil more destructive and far
renching than fire to the lives of
children that has forced our atten
tion on this sinster word "malnutri
tion.' Malnutrition haa caused the
death of more children than any
knerwn contagious disease. Malnu
trition Is the cause of most, If Indeed
not all, cases of child delinquency,
snd moral weaknea. It ia a foe
that strikes at the Uvea of helpless
children, silently, awretly, destruc
tively. There are five recogniied causes
for malnutrition:
1. Physical defects
2. Wnoriir diet
ft. Wrong- health habits
4. I-ack of home control
5. Over fatigue
One of these causes alone may
cause a state of malnutrition, or all
five rases may be found in the same
child.
We will consider Physical defects
th:s week. Look at your child. Un
dress the child, or watch the child at
play or at work, but examine your
own child. Do you know when your
child Is ssck or healthy? You know
when your child ia sick with cold,
fever or pain, but do you know when
your child is really well, with a bank
account of good health to draw upon
when the cold epidemics, chicken pox,
etc, come around T Has he any of
the signs of malnutrition ? If so,
your child is not really well.
To begin the -examination of your
child, you should find out first how
much he should weigh for his height
not how much he should weigh for
his age, but for hia height. Consult
a reliable standard for weight and
'eight, use reliable scales that will
gauge tenths of pounds, use an ac-j

child should be. If he is aa much as

Continuing- the examination, you
look at your child as he aits tinwn.
Does he s't on the small of his hack,
shoulders stooped, chest hollowed?
Are his shoulder blades prominent?
Is his backbone perfectly straight, or
do you feel a light curvature aa you
run your fingrr down the spine?
Does your child breathe w'th hia
mouth open? Does he breathe thru
only one side of his nose? Have
you looked to see what your child's
tonsils look like? If your child sits
and breathes properly, you are ready
to look farther.
Dad teeth, teeth with unfilled cav
ities, even in first teeth, may cause
stomach trouble, rheumatism and ae
rious heart trouble from the forma
tion of pua. Are your child's teeth
clean? Is there no bad odor in the
breath? Are the teeth regular? Ir
regular teeth lead to poor mastica
tion, and that. In turn, leads to all
sorts of digestive troubles.
IWa your child see and hear per
fectly? Watrh your child read.
How near must be hold the book?
How long can he read before becom

hear well, la it because of wax in the

Is your child's skin clran? Soap
and water are treat friends to
health, but after they have done their
work, are there spots, erruptions, or
discoloration on the skin that don't

After you have gone as far as this
in your examination and find your
child satisfactory In every way, ex
amine the child's disposition. Is be
irritable, willful, unreasonable? Is
he nervous, a. poor sleeper, and
tha possessor of an uncertain appe
tite. In other words, is he herd to
control? Ask his teacher about his
school work. Tske account of his
grade card. He may be making high
grade at the expense of his nervous
energy. He may be making low
grades because of physical defects
for which he is not to blame.
Take your child to a doctor or a
dentist. Assure yourself thst he Is
physically as sound as you can make
him; and if he belongs in the under
