Compulsory military service for
men, urges a German female advocate
of women's right, should be offset by
compulsory domestic service for worn

have benefitted German manhood, she
asks, why will not life in the kitchen
and exercise In the use of pots and
pans similarly raise German woman
hood? If Germany ever organizes a stand
ing army of cooks it may force all
Europe to follow its lead. Culinary
conscription is a severe measure, but
when enforced in Germany other na
tions might be expected to adopt it.
There would be more reason in doing

A Doctor's Talk on Food.
There are no fairer set of men on
earth than the doctors, and when they
find they have been in error they are
usually apt to make honest and manly
admission of the fact.
A case In point Is that of a practi
tioner, one of the good old school, who
lives in Texas. His plain, unvarnished
tale needs no dressing up:
"I had always had an intense preju
dice, which I can now see was unwar
rantable and unreasonable, against all
muchJy advertised foods. Hence, I
never read a line of the many 'ads' of
Grape-Nuts, nor tested the food till
last winter.
"While in Corpus Chrlsti for my

ROME'S big exposition, which
was opened in January, will
make "The Eternal City" bet
ter known to the outside
world. It is international In
scope and it is expected 1.000,000 vis
itors will be attracted to It.
As one is whirled into Rome in the
cars the great viaducts which con

yielded to the vandalism of the in

the spoliation of Hun and Goth. A
few are In excellent condition. Of the
four which supply the city with water
three are cf ancient rearing. In olden
days 24 were necessary, for Rome then
had seven times as many people as
now. And the water, carried through
these pipes from the Alban mountains,
Is as pure as any which ministers to
the wants of man.
The capltol Is In the very heart of
Rome. Here Is a majestic flight of
steps crowned at the summit by colos

In the baths of Diocletian. It was down
the steps which these have now re
placed that Rlezi, "last of the Roman
tribunes," fled In his last moments, to

In their palace burning on the hill, his
beautiful young wife looked down and
saw his tragic death. In the square at
the summit of this staircase is the
place where Brutus harangued the un
willing populace after the murder of
Caesar. No part of Rome Is better
adapted to contain the portrait gal
lery of its ancient rulers than this Cap
itolene bill, the scene of many of its
earlier glories and its later crimes.
Rome has more churches in com
parison with the number of its dwell
era than any other city. You are never
out of sight of one, turn which way
you will. Sometimes where streets in

corner. Near the American embassy,

in a stone's tbrow there are three
more. There are 400 in all and some
thing like 1,000 chapels besides. Some
of the most ancient have been taken
from the pagans, some built by popes,
some are of medieval construction,
and there are half a dozen of the mod
ern school erected within a decade.

The Vatican gardens are as beauti

often depicted. Here the Italian gar

representations of these exquisitely

but they pale alongside of the beau

of the pope. The hedges, in the rich

everything else is on as attractive an
as generous a scale. The forest with

WASHINGTON. One of the most
bitter fights in the history of the
national capital for many years back
has lately been going on, and doctors
ill over the United States are falling
into line for or against the proposal
that we shall have a national bureau
3t health. Mass meetings are being
called and mile-long petitions are be
ing dumped upon the national legisla
tors. Tons of mall and thousands of
telegrams keep coming urging them to
vote for the "conservation of human
life." Other tons of letters and Innu
merable messages plead, demand and
entreat them to vote down what is
characterized as a "doctor's trust."
Hardly a town of any consequence
In the country has failed to have mass
meetings, councils and semi-public
gatherings of both factions. The med
ical men of the country have fallen
out over the proposition of having
lome general governing body to over-
ee things medical in the United
States. Washington 1b filled up with
fighting cohorts. The cry of "no
quarter" Is the popular one, and the
fighters are lashing out at each other
bitterly in the committee rooms, in the
press and from the lecture platforms.

Mrs. Taft's Informal 5 O'Clock Teas
WHILE officially exempt from the
obligations which rest upon other
loss distinguished hostesses, Mrs. Taft
nevertheless takes cognizance of the
duties of her position as chatelaine of
the president's house and since her
coming Into possesion of the old home
has Instituted a very Informal but none
the less delightful five o'clock tea.
These five o'clock teas of Mrs. Taft
are arranged for the purpose of permit
ting informal presentations to the
first lady and In consequence the least
bit of ceremony In tbe world Is intro
duced. Appointments are made in
sdvance, of course, and when the day

Health Department
way: About a year ago 12 bills were
Introduced in congress, all seeking to
legalize the establishment of a na
tional bureau of health. Eleven of
these bills were strangled in the com
mittees, and but two remained. These
two were the subject of bitter acri-
manlous debate on numerous occasions,
but congress finally adjourned without
doing anything. The fight was mere
ly postponed until the present ses
sion. The fight for a national health bu
reau is a part of the general conserva
tion movement that is going on all
over the country. The Natoinai Con
servation commls8oln has taken note
of "human life" as being one of the
resources of the nation that Is worth
saving. Originally this commission
was formed to conserve lands, waters,
mill sites, forests, minerals and wild
gume, but it speedily rame to the con
clusion that human life was worth
more than all the rest of our resources
put together.
"We need men," said the conserva
tionists, "to plow these lands, dig in
these mines and cut down these for
est trees. Therefore, let us conserve
human life, stamp out disease and give
the doomed babies a chance. Let us
establish a national bureau of health
that can at least do as much tor the
farmers' babies as it Is now doing foi
his horses and cattle."
In support of the establishment ol

Agricultural Work
The department Is expressing the
hope that the state liglulatures will
give the movement a new impetus by
increasing the amount of their appro
prlatlons for the work. This year'e
appropriation by states aggregated

average amount. $10,000. New York
led, with $!0,0)0; Iowa was second,
wilh $:i2,000, and Wisconsin third,
with $;!0,000. The department points
out that to the $,101,780 Bhould be
added the amount used by the sev

no separate account was kept.
