compulsory domestic service for wom

If Germany ever organizes a stand

so than in following Germany's lead

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
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.

pleasantly upon my stomach as this

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

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

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
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

lighters 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
less distinguished hostesses, Mrs. Taft
nevertheless takes cognizance of the
duties of her position as chatelaine of
the president's house and since her
coming iqto 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 the world is intro
duced. Appointments are made in
!tdvance, of course, and when the day
irrlves the visitors are . shown Into

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

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.

As far as possible tne maids are

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

add to the attractiveness of Mrs. Taft's
