Give a Woman a Chance. Compulsory military service for men, urges a German female advocate of women's right, should be offset by compulsory domestic service for wom en. On the theory that life in bar rack and drill In the manual of arms 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? .... v 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 so than in following Germany's lead In militarism. There is more real need of cooks the world over than of soldiers. It is possible to get along without fighting, but not without eat ing. Music Hall Losing Vogue. Music halls have increased very lit tle in the last few years. Some have gone back to drama.

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 health, and visiting my youngest son, who has four of the ruddiest, healthi est little boys I ever saw, I ate my first dish of Grape-Nuts food for sup per with my little grandsons. "I became exceedingly fond of it and have eaten a package of It every week since, and find it a delicious, re freshing and strengthening food, leav ing no 111 effects whatever, causing no eructations (with which I was for merly much troubled), no sense of fullness, nausea, nor distress of stom ach in any way. "There is no other food that agrees with me so well, or sits as lightly or pleasantly upon my stomach as this does. "I am stronger and more active since I began the use of Grape-Nuts than I have been for 10 years, and am no longer troubled with nausea and Indigestion." Name given by Postum Co., Dattle Creek, Mich.

ROM i Hie Eternal City i r 0i -jtZZ-'- 'Tin "fn-tiin- n-nrniiriTiim m Yin n mwm niiriW-nTHiranmnin) i 'm x ,fr 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 pcope 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 veyed water from the mountains be yond rise up before him. Some have yielded to the vandalism of the in vader and their broken arches attest 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 sal statues of old Roman gods found In the baths of Diocletian. It was down the steps which these have now re placed that Riezi, "last of the Roman tribunes." fled in his last moments, to fall at their base, bleeding from St. Peter's, Rome. twenty wounds; while from a window 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 hill, 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 ers than any other city. You are never out of sight of one, turn which way you will. Sometimes where streets in tersect there are four one on each corner. Near the American embassy, on Via Ventl Settembre, where a street intersects, three of the corners are ta ken up with religious temples. With in a stone's throw 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. That there is one stone left upon another in Rome is what historians , Mm x. - r . . . ' iri H r 5 laXZilaaU"k, 1 si zaar YArcAi JAKDm$ marvel about. In 2,300 years the city has been taken by invading armies 42 times and has repelled a dozen at tempts to capture it Usually the city was sacked when It could not b burned and many of its people carried into slavery. Battering rams have been hurled against the Coliseum, against the 25-foot wall of the Pan theon, against all the public buildings reared under the Caesars, but unavail ingly. Rome was as strong In her structural kingdom as she was power ful In the field. Taxes were light in Rome before unification. Since then they are heavy. When Victor Emmanuel was crowned Rome expected to become a capital of 1,000.000 in 25 years. She did start a good deal of building and in other ways Improved the city. But It pre cipitated a financial panic, banks fail ed and there was a hard time all around. So, instead of a million folks in a quarter of a century, the number is 600.000 after 40 years. The merchants never carry two ar ticles of the same kind. The stores are small, the stock limited, and Romans want to be original in their purchases. Consequently in the orna mental or useful line while there is a variegated display there is no repeti tion. The small dealer is content with a fair sale; does not care to do a large business if it Involves much work. The Vatican gardens are as beauti ful as the lovers of landscape have so often depicted. Here the Italian gar den is idealized. I have often seen representations of these exquisitely laid out grounds in different countries but they pale alongside of the beau ties of the kind found in the territory of the pope. The hedges, in the rich est of verdure, are 15 feet high, and everything else is on as attractive ana as generous a scale. The forest with paths made where the popes take daily exercise are freighted with de licious odors which bid one tarry. Then there is an enclosure where pea cocks, ducks, chickens, etc., give va riety to the entrancing picture. The play of fountains and the rush o! waters in a cataract and over rocky projections are most pleasing. Grape arbors here and there lead one to be lieve that wine producing of a superior flavor is one of the yields in this won derful enclosure. The chapel of Lour des erected by Leo XIII is In the midst of greenery which gives it a cemetery setting. The one-story octa gonal house on the edge of the emi nence three-quarters of a mile from the Vatican, where Leo used to pass the heated days of summer in writing, overlooks the valley beyond. Opposite is the city he loved and for 25 years looked upon but could not venture into. While, the gardens are beautiful and spacious, man tires in circum scribed area, for the instinct is natur al to go out and see things elsewhere. Pius X finds this self-imposed exile just as irksome as did Pius IX and Leo XII and longs for a change. It will be a happy day when the holy father can do away with these barriers which shut him out from the populace of Rome and when he can enjoy the freedom of the city's streets and feel that he is as safe among his towns men as he is inside the walls of the Vatican. War Over National 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 3f 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 seml-publlc gatherings of both factions. The med ical men of the country have fallen ut over the proposition of having 3ome general governing body to over see things medical in the United 3tates. Washington Is filled up with fighting cohorts. The cry of "no Quarter" is the popular one, and the lighters are lashing out at each other bitterly In the committee rooms. In the press and from the lecture platforms. All the fighting came about In this Lawmakers Add I LEFT "I SHOW YOUR MINE ATI LICENSE . HOME, HONES 1010 IF ALL the freak legislation Intro duced by legislators throughout the United States were passed and became laws what a funny country this would become! Indiana has fur nished one of the most recent sam ples. It Is a bill requiring every per son wishing to take a drink to take out a license. From Colorado comes the Interest ing news that a bill Is about to be In troduced In the legislature of that state providing that any surgeon who shall perform an operation for ap pendicitis and thereafter be unable to prove that the appendix was In a dis eased condition, shall be guilty of malpractice and punishable under the penal code. That much-abused class, the poor bachelors, are being abused once more, this time In New Mexico, where a bill has been introduced in the States to Aid in THE department of agriculture an nounces that thirty-three colleges have organized departments of agri culture extension. The movement Is only four years old. The number of persons connected with the extension work in 31 states is 92. This does not include members of the college faculty and experiment station staffs, who contribute only occasional serv ice. Apparatus necessary for interior in struction work In agriculture has multiplied In the four years until now entire buildings are devoted to the storing of agricultural machinery; barns are filled with horses, cattle, sheep and swine; hundreds of acres of land are utilized In demonstration, and granaries are filled with samples of feed, all used for Illustration in construction work to the resident students.

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 the world is intro duced. Appointments are made in !tdvance, of course, and when the day irrlves the visitors are . shown Into ither the red room or the green room. 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 acrt 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 ia going on all over the country. The Natolnal Con servation commlssoln 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, tnjll sites, forests, minerals and wild game, but It speedily came 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 for the farmers' babies as it Is now doing foi his horses and cattle." In support of the establishment ol the new department are ranged thou sand of life insurance companies, la bor organizations, farmers' assocla tions and other civic and social bodies to Nation's Gaiety legislature providing for the classifica tion of bachelors and widowers and the levying of a tax against them. As for Texas, the legislature is now seriously considering the enactment of a law to put you in jail if you ever dare to use bad language to the tele phone receiver. The tongues of the railway station agents In Missouri may be loosened If a bill Introduced Into the legislature of the state Is passed. The bill pro vides a fine of $25 to $50 for any agent who refuses to answer questions put by travelers. The father of the bill said years of rebuffs by agents, of whom he had Inquired if trains were on time, had aroused in him a lingering longing to one day "get back" at the sphinx who hides behind the wicket. The state oi Washington is cater ing to Its lady voters. Polling places are going to be made very attractive for them. The city council of Seattle started the ball rolling with the intro duction of a resolution prohibiting smoking in polling places at elections. It Is proposed to make the election booths very pretty with decorations, flowers, easy chairs and polite atten dants, v Agricultural Work The department Is expressing the hope that the state legislatures will give the movement a new impetus by Increasing the amount of their appro priations for the work. This year's appropriation by states aggregated $301,780. Indiana appropriated an average amount, $10,000. New York led, with $50,000; Iowa was second, with $32,000, and Wisconsin third, with $30,000. The department, points out that to the $301,780 should be added the amount used by the sev eral states for extension work from the farmers' institute fund, of which no separate account was kept. From the standpoint of the federal government, agricultural extension is a business proposition. It undertakes to do for men engaged In agriculture what proprietors of mtlls and manu factories are striving to accomplish In their business the conservation of waste, economy of effort and mate rial, and an Increase In the output with reduced expense. "It strives to do with and for a man that which a manufacturer desires to have done for his machines Improve it that it may turn out more and better quality of products," says Prof. John Hamilton of the office of experiment stations. where they will find the president'! wife domestically posed behind a pret tily laid tea table, where the steaming beverage is served. As far as possible tne maids are eliminated and the opportunity to have an informal chat with the president's wife over a steaming cup of very good tea is one that a great many women are willing to enjoy in preference tc being a guest at the most ceremonious fete of the White House season. To add to the attractiveness of Mrs. Taft's five o'clock teas there is little pos sibility of "crowd" Just a few guests are received and Mrs. Taft's tact and good humored friendliness does the rest. Sandwiches of infinite variety sea soned Just so; little cakes which are simply one mouthful of deliclousness accompany a cup of tea which Is more than good enough to drink. The Tafts have been Inoculated with the tea drinking virus through their long resi dence In countries where tea ia really a beverage ot quality.
