Permission has been asked of the war "department for the use of part of the cantonments when they are released from . military service, as training .camps for women. The women will .be instructed in setting-up exercises and semi -military drill adapted to . women and children. When the worn. n Inish the course they will go into industrial centers and public schools and teach this form of physical cul ture. The corps has also asked for another part of each cantonment to be used as a recreation camp where physicians can send women and chil dren who do not need medicine as much as they need conditioning. The women's corps which is taking up this plan is an organization estab lished by women- war workers in Washington. It has now been made a permanent organization with the purpose of making women physically fit to take their places in the business, industry and general work of the na tion. Admiral Cary.T.

Lane, wife of the secretary of the Interior, Miss Mabel T. Broadman of the American Red Cross, and Miss Gertrude Lane, maga zine editor. Miss Cocroft in explaining the pur ' jesn of the work, says: "We wish to utilize the knowledge of what the camps have done for men mentally and physically and apply the same knowledge to the conditioning of women while the public mind is quickened to this utility, so that wom en and children may be given an op portunity to benefit by outdoor life regularly supervised under military discipline and competent medical and nursing assistance."

' 1M Hcirt svtvd BefcLtvty Problems Dear Mrs. Thompson: I am twenty five years of age and independent fi nancially. I have only really loved one man. Several years ago he and I were engaged, but he broke the en gagement without any apparent rea son and would never even discuss the matter with me. I still love him, but he doesn't seem to care for me any more. He Is reported to be engaged to another girl. Before he began go ing with her he said he cared for me more than any other girl. I have hardly spoken to him since the engagement was broken. He is very polite to me when he happens to come in touch with me, and I have heard that he says nice things about me. - Do you think that such a man is worthy of a true girl's love What can I do to interest him again? I Fhall never be truly happy without him. He is good looking, of good social standing and well educated. I have been to college, and am also of good standing. BLUE EYES. Stop thinking about the man. He has made his choice and it is not your place to change it The fact that he broke his engage ment with you does not reflect upon his character because it was better to sto pthen than to marry you without love. He, however, should have ex plained his reason. Dear Mrs. Thompson: I am seven teen years of age and have been keep ing company with a young man of twenty-two years for about three months. I had a lot of other boy friends before I met him, but he is the only one I ever cared to keep steady company with. He comes on Sunday, Wednesday and Saturday evenings and often other times during the week. He doesn't seem to care about any other girls. I haven't any intention of getting married so young. Do you think he loves me? Ought I to consider him seriously or Just as a friend? SORREL TOP. Consider the boy as a friend only. A girl of your age ought not to limit herself to one boy friend. He prob ably loves you now or he would not call so often, but In youth love often burn Itself out Do not let him see ' you so often or he may cease to enjoy your company because he has too much of It, Dear Mrs. Thompson: I am married and have two children. My husband is busy away from home most of the time. What little time he is home the children or hired help are always around and so I never have a chance to talk or say one word to him in private. How am I going to manage to visit with him and not have them around? MRS. C. N. Go Into another room wit hyour husband or take a walk together. Of course it is not pleasant to have oth ers around al lthe time. Perhaps you could arrange a little supper for your The Asiatic town of Maiwatchi, on the borders of Russia, Is peopled by men only.

Household Hints IN GRANDMA'S COOK BOOK Scrapple Materials: Pig's head one-half (or set of pig's feet), onion, cut, two cups; salt, two tablespoons, pepper one-half teaspoon, corn meal six cups, buckwheat flour three cups, thyme (powdered) one teaspoon, sum mer savory (powdered) one teaspoon, sage (powdered) one teaspoon. Remove eye, teeth and snout from pig's head, or have the feet correctly cleaned. Wash well and put In the kettle with ten quarts of cold water. Add onion and boil slowly until the meat and skin falls from the bones. Remove all the meat and chop or cut it fine. Strain the stock. So there will be no small bones; return stock and meat to the kettle. When boiling, add the corn meal very slowly, stirring constantly and boll slowly one hour.

This will keep a month in a cold place. Always dust with a little flour before frying, or dip in beaten egg and bread and cracker crumbs. The meat in this dish may be sub stituted for any of the cheaper meats such as neck or shank or in the use of leftover meats, although the flavor will vary with these and also when J the stock is not used.
