There Is a motto that has been adopted
ot late by the business men of the city that
is attracting considerable attention to the
amusements, 'the entertainments, the
things which- make the average Amer
ican citizen njoy life as it should
be enjoyed, as it was meant to be
enjoyed. This motto Is "Make Kansas City
a good placo to live In." There is no city
or an equal size' In the country that has so
tew places of amusement, so few places ot
entertainment, so few beautiful drives, so
few of any or the what are considered in
dispensable adjuncts to a city that lays
any claim to metropolitanism. In con
junction with this it may be said that until
very recently there have been few first
class cafes in the city. There have been
all sorts ot eating houses, und, or course,
there liave been the cafes at the larger
hotels, but there have been absolutely none
or the kind where the fashionable folk love
to congregate, where the nrosneroni husl.
"ess man can have his lunch in the middle
pr the day and entertain in the proper way
his out-or-town customer. And, above all,
there has been nono where this man could
take his wire and daughter and enjoy as
he would like the goods things or life,
mere has been no place where society
could go, or. rather, would go, after the
theater and spend a pleasant hour amid
congenial folk after seeing the play.
It has been said that the men ot Kansas
L.lty are too busy to care for anything of
the sort, but this is not so. They are no
busier than the men of New York, wheie
they have their Delmonico; than the men

S?mJ?.. In, charge ot broad-minded and
progressive leaders is evident from tha
vi?S,?iCMPe of 'the'Work that Is being donei
J,"fJWllS of interest to mothers and
housekeepers is discussed. Not only ard
papers read on domestic economy, the san-i
nation and yentllatlcn of .homes, house
decorations, the best way to bring up chiN
dreit and other theoretical problems, but
work of actual benefit Is done. A, list H
kept of the names and addresses of good
cooks, housemaids, coachmen, houseclean
!rs:,nursesv. eic- Th's la accessible; to all
members. Under the head of. miscellaneous:
business at the close of each meeting the
chairman inquires whether any of tha
members want servants. The' names of
those answering- are mentioned,, and mem4
bers are solicited to keep them in mind
if the opportunity of sending them, the de
s'jed servants arises.- Then too. ideas- as
children's clothes,-, thelt making and re
making are exchanged., These- are merely
instances of the excellent plan upon whicn
the home department is conducted.
The arrangements for the summer school
of domestic economy to be held under the
auspices or the Athenaeum home depart
ment next vacation are progressing very
satisfactorily. Committees to work up the
cooking, primary sewing and dressmaking
departments will be appointed next week.
The work or canvassing tor pupils will then
begin. Mrs. John C. Gage, chairman or
the home department, has taken a deep
Interest In this project and Is giving it the
benefit of her personal supervision. She
has had many flattering assurances that
the school will be appreciated. Many of
her friends have announced their Intention
or staying at homo from their summer
outings in order to benellt by this instruc
tion. Three especially line concerts will be
offered this spring as a concert course by
the Athenaeum. Max Bendix, tho violin
ist, is the first attraction. He will play at
the Auditorium on February 21. Godow

Mrs. John C. Gage said: "We are willing
to send our children ahrond tnv muefifii

ciate opportunities which are given us here
i u- ti.ui.ii ojiiciiict jiiii-e. e an realize
that among our musical Instructors here
we have some eminent artist Ttnf t-,
have not the 'musical atmosphere,' that
intangible aid to culture for which we go
iu uic uiu iv ui iu ernes, it is not, tnereiore,
on uccount of any inadequacy In our own
musicians that we bring these outsiders
here, but because we want to help our own
artists to create the desired atmosphere."
All the members ot the Athenaeum nro
enthusiastic over the prospect or making
the concert course a success and the pub
lic In general will soon be made to feel
the same interest.
Miss Josephine Casey, ot the sewing de
partment or the Manual Training high
school, read an excellent paper on "Dress"
before the home department of the Athe
naeum on AA'ednesday morning. She advo
cated a study, careful and conscientious,, of
beauty in dress. Line and color are the
chief things to be considered. One should
take care to have one's street gowns bring
out the beauty of the hair, one's daytime
house gowns to bring out the color of the
eyes and one's evening apparel should set
off the complexion. Many practical hints
on proper dressing were given. Next
AVednesday one of the prominent modistes
of Kansas City will talk on the "Spring
Styles for AA'omen and Children."
One anxious mother inquired of the
chairman or tho home department the
other morning if styles for little boys were
ever discussed. The chairman replied "Oh,
Httlo boys never submit to 'styles. Get
them to wear anything you can and be
Mrs. R. J. McCarty, chairman of the cur
rent events department of the Athenaeum,
presided over a large assembly of women on
AVednesday afternoon. It was the occa
sion ot tne nrst open session oi tne depart
ment and. very appropriately, expansion
was tho subject for discussion. Puzzling po
litical subjects were grappled with heroic
ally by the leaders or the different topics.
It was evident that close study and appli
cation naa Deen unuergone. European ex
pansion policies of the past and present
were reviewed. The right of the United
States to keep her new acquisitions. In view
of her promise to the world at large, re
ceived due attention. Tho effect of a co
lonial policy on the constitution, on the
army and'navy: the question of the right of
annexing territory against the wishes of
the natives: whether white races can colon
ize the tropics successfully or not these
and many other weighty questions agitated
the brains of the Athenaeum members.
Those taking formal part in the programme
were Mrs. Bell, Mrs. De Voss. Mrs. Austin,
Mrs. Thorpe. Miss Green. Mrs. Yeager,
Mrs. Deane. Mrs. Barlow. Mrs. Fort, Mr.
Gentry and Mrs. Melnrath. Mrs. Henry
X. Ess and Miss Minna Kldwell made ex
cellent Impromptu speeches on the subject.
The majority of the women favored ex
pansion. It is Interesting to note, 'though,
all or them seemed to find It necessary
to apologize ror such a belief. The Athe
naeum rooms were beautifully Wnt,i
with the stars and stripes, ln graceful
draperies. A'ariety was Introduced into the
