" idle reflections of no significance,
I espccialy idle and insignificant.
At the St. Francis yesterday, with
Indian summer drifting into the cafe
through shaded windows, and iced tea
cool in long glasses, the way they use
their knives and forks seemed an ap
pealing study.
The forks they use with a pretty
vivacity. This refers, of course, to
gesticulation. Far eating the word
would be voracity. And the truth is
a polite voracity is quite de rigueur.
■■'d types like Mrs. Rruguiere avoid it. Their way is one of remote
indifference. They might be taking tabloid nourishment of the future instead
of killing oysters in the most humane way known to science. By way ot
<!icres<ion. the man who discovered that eating oysters is the most humane
f killing them was a meddlesome person who accomplished no good.
lestroyed the peace of mind of innocent executioners for the rest of
and determined them to evade responsibility, and at awful cost to the
;s. have them dispatched by the chef. Broiling does seem medieval.
least it i~ all over when they're served and one may be philosophic
after they're dead.
Bet to return. The indifferent manner is not half so smart as voracity.
m.-iy be explained by modern Kleonora Sears types. Any girl who is
links at 9 o'clock for three hours of golf couldn't to save her soul be
stly indifferent to food at 1. She is more likely ravenous, and not at all
averse to saying so. Tt is the fashion to be healthy, and an appetite is
perfectly permissible, expressed as it is, comparatively speaking, in a charm
ght voracity. . ,
However, the intention had been to remark the new vivacity. Its
tst with the old way. When a former generation learned manners it
ght to eat with delicacy and distaste. To use knives not at all. if
and fork- only when "absolutely necessary. One was supposed to
the silver on the plate, removing it to convey food to the mouth, but
it at once. The new i<iea i-—be interested in the menu and never
fork Use it as oiten as appetite requires, but between times retain
mphasize conversation; or just to be held with easy lightness between
ngers for an effect of finished carelessness, ready to be raised to point
an epigram (?). As old fashioned belles might have used their fans. A
silver fork of good design is a really graceful implement, and some
one evidently discovered it.

Averrs Calamity
Shadows of its ecclesiastical origin
have fallen recently upon To Kalon,
one of the leading women's clubs of
the city. They have threatened to dis
rupt the organization and to b#ng on.

'session" before the elders of Calvary
It all began with a desire for a
grand piano to belong to the club, to
raise funds for which a card party was
Now, happily, all is quiet once more, i
The card party idea has been with- j
drawn, thf elders are pacified and ways |
and means of raising money by taint- I
less methods are being discussed.
Some eight years ago To Kalon was
formed as a sort of a feminine literary
society in Calvary Presbyterian
church. As time went on other tnem
bers canxe in who had other church af
filiation?, and it has become, or was
supposed to have become, quite non- J
sectarian and unecclesiastical. <
Nothing very startling in character!
has ever been proposed by the club j
and its exact status in the church had j
not been considered. The meeting ■
place has continued, however, to be j
the parlors of Calvary church.
Cards have been a favorito pursuit i
of many of the members in tiieir pri
vate lives, card parties have been
given freely In their own homes and it i
has been pointed out since that Mrs. |
William Rader. wife of the pastor of j
(Mlvary. is one of the best bridge
players in the city. -
All of which is the reason that the
suggestion made by Mrs. F. W.
Thompson, leader of the civic section
of To Kalon. in the meeting of the
board of directors, that a card party or
two would bring in money with ease
and rapidity for the piano fund, caused
no mental anguish to any one.
The motion passed almost with a
ratio of 16 to 1 in the board, but when
the news drifted out to the puhlic in
that way in whicft official session ac
tions so often do there were protests
from members*of the church, both in
and out of To Kalon.
Miss Carrie Morton, a prominent
woman in the club, wa<s the leader of
the church party, and she had backing.
To Kalon, it was pointed out, had
never. severed its connection with the
church sufficiently to move its head
quarters, and for a church club, even a
"near church" club, to raise money by
cards was unseemly, unfit and a great
many more things.
The elders began to talk about a
"session" for some of the card party
ring leaders. So Mrs. Thompson quick
ly restored peace and amity, officially
at least, by withdrawing her motion.
How to raise money by thoroughly
sanitary methods, free from taint of
worldliness, is engrossing the advo
cates of the grand piano scheme.
Still the question of just how closely
To Kalon is allied to its Presbyterian
parent is unsettled.

Supposing That Men Did
Women's Work
DON'T you think it would be a grand thing if for a
short space of time—a month, perhaps—every
housewife in the land could leave her kitchen and
her housework and let the men folks do her work?
If such a thing were possible, I think a great many
good results would be brought to pass.
One would be that some men would cease to wonder
what their wives did with their time.
Another would be that some men would realize that
the money they have thought themselves generous in
giving their wives was entirely inadequate pay for the
work they have been doing.
And another result—and this is the point which I
want to bring out today especially—would be that much
One morning I chanced to be in the kitchen of a woman who does all the
work for her family of eight. She was making the toast which is invariably
part of their breakfast. In turning the toaster she dropped two pieces of
bread and burned her hand getting- them back. "I'm always doing that," she
explained; "it's that horrid old toaster. It's been broken for months, and I
ought to get a new one." And a new toaster would probably have cost about
a quarter.
T remember in our own kitchen an obstinate egg beater which struggled
frantically against performing its duty. At a conservative reckoning it must
have taken twice as long to beat an egg with that instrument of nerve
torture as it should have. Yet we made shift with that miserable thing for at
least a year. And you can get a good egg beater for 20 cents!
The other day I assisted with the dishwashing in a summer cottage.
There was no scourer There had not been any all summer. That meant
that it had taken about three times as long to wash the pots and kettles
every day. Again and again I have heard that woman complain that she
didn't get as much time to be out of doors as she had hoped. And a scourer
would cost 10 cents. .
Housework is hard work at best; its infinite demands eat up an astonish
ing amount of time. All too many women have sad reason to quote:
"Man's work is from sun to sun,
But woman's work is never done."
Surely, then, every housewife ought to have the best possible equipment.
Sometimes their failure to is due to economy; sometimes it's just careless
ness. If it's economy, it's false economy; if it's carelessness, it's very foolish
and a waste of energy.
Every woman owes it to herself and her family to have as much time for
rest and "recreation as possible. The intelligent, modern woman is coming to
realize this and to know that perfect equipment will help her. A professor s
wife who decided to enlarge her husband's income by doing her own work
at once perfected her regulation equipment and added to it a fireless cooker, a
dishwasher and a vacuum cleaner.
Men insist that they can not do their work satisfactorily unless they have
the best possible equipment.
Why shouldn't women make the same demands?

of style and excellence of material. St o<*ton and OTarrell
and Beauty Hintfi
l>. Sister: It is right that the patrons
of your "beauty parlors" should object
to shampoos made from soap on ac- ;
count of the great danger of the soap ;
alkali ruining the luster of their hair. |
Try a- shampoo made by dissolving a \
teaspoonful of canthrox in a cup of I
hut water, and after shampooing, rinse |
the hair as usual. Canthrox makes
the most satisfactory shampoo imagin- '
able and leaves no bad effects. It
lathers splendidly and is the best and
most thorough scalp cleanser I have
ever seen. It relieves scalp irritation |
and leaves the hair bright, soft, fluffy |
and easy to do up. This shampoo per- ,
mils the hair to dry quickly, is very ;
beneficial and will not cause faded, j
streaky or discolored hair, as soap and
most shampoos are likely to do.
Mrs L. G.: It is not necessary that
your face retlect your age. You could
easily have a much finer,* clearer,
smoother and more youthful com
plexion if you quit using powder and
tried a good lotion. Dissolve four
ounces spurraax in a half-pint hot
water or witcli hazel and add two tea
spoonfuls glycerin. Apply this to your
face, neck and arms, and it will im
prove your looks wonderfully. It will
eoften and whiten your skin and re
move that shiny, greasy look. This
inexpensive lotion will not rub off like
powder, and is very beneficial in pre
venting and removing freckles and
skin pimples, and is a wonderful skin
beautifier. You can get anything I
recommend at almost any drug store.
"Weak Eyes": Wearing glasses is
not likely to help your weak, dull, in
flamed eyes. What you need is a good,
strengthening eye-tonic. The next
time you go to a drug store get an
ounce of crystos and dissolve it in a
pint of water. Drop a few drops of
tMs in each eye occasionally and you
will be surprised how soon it will
give you relief. It will not smart or
burn the eyes and is a perfect , v reli
able tonic for any one to use who has
eye-troubles. It is splendid for treat
ing watery, expressionless eyes or
granulated lids. It makes the eyes
bright, strong and sparkling.
R. X.: I would advise you to seek
health first, before beauty. You say
you are not sick, but that you feel
tired always, look sallow and have pim
ples and eruptions. Try this home-made
blood-purifier and system-tonic: Get
from your druggist one ounce of kar
dene, dissolve it in one-half pint of
alcohol (not whiskey), and add one
half cupful of sugar, then enough hot
water to make a full quart. Take a
tablespoonful before each meal. This
remedy should tone up your system and
build "up your strength. It aids di
gestion, arouses a torpid liver and
purines the blood. When your blood

A meeting of the California League
for the Protection of Motherhood will
he held this afternoon at 3 o'clock at
the St. Francis, when Miss Sarah
Truax, who is playing the title role in
'•Mother" at the Alcazar theater this
week, will deliver an address. Other
speakers will be Rev. William Rader,
Burleigh Davidson and Curtis Hillyer,
the latter being the attorney who drew
the proposed bill.
Perhaps girls kiss each other merely
to keep in pratlce.
Is pure, your sallowness and pimples
will disappear and you will have more
strength and energy.
Grace: No, I know It doesn't add to
your peace of mind when you are con
scious that you are getting so fat that
your dress is continually gaping in the
back and you fear the constant strain
will prove too much for the buttons.
If you want to cut down your flesh
without starving yourself or without
tiring and futile exercise, go to your
druggist and get four ounces of par
notis. Dissolve it in \\'z pints of hot
water, then take a tablespoonful before
each meal. Your double chin and short
ness of breath will soon disappear, for
I know several cases where parnotis
took off superfluous fat at the rate of
several pounds a week.
Jessie P. H.: Some sage dressings
are beneficial to the scalp, but I never
recommend them on account of the
danger of staining or discoloring the
hair. If you want a good, dependable
remedy for dandruff, itching scalp and
falling hair, try an ounce of quinzotn
dissolved in one-half pint of alcohol
(not whiskey) and add one-half pint
water. This will put your hair and
scalp in a healthy condition. Apply
the tonic twice a week, rubbing it
gently into the hair-roots. It is free
from oil and makes a fine dressing for
the hair. I know of many who were
troubled with "hopeless" cases of dan
druff and falling hair that found this
an ideal tonic.
Madge: For jour hollow cheeks and
wrinkled face I recommend frequent
applications of a good greaseless com
plexion cream-jelly, also brisk massag
ing. By stirring together one ounce
almozoin, two teaspoonfuls glycerine
and one-half pint cold water, allowing
to stand over night, you will have an
extra good complexion cream. Use this
also for massaging and it will clear up
your skrn fine, removing all dirt from
the pores, and soon you will find your
complexion smooth, fresh-looking and
unwrinkled. This Iβ an excellent cream
for treating blackheads, freckles and
roughness of the skin and will rid your
face of those very large pores.
Mary B.: Applying a delatone paste
to the" hairy surface for two or tliree
minutes will remove every trace of hair
