THE CELINA DEMOCRAT, CELINA, OHIO
Uncle Sam's Children's Bureau 6y Edward D.Clark n Hcfto the government has taken up the task of im proving living conditions for boys and girts in alt parts of the country TTTTASIIINGTON. In one dense 'TAll nt least the United Stutes S III VV Kvernnicnt Is paternal. w7l mere nuve been objections, political, economic, uud per J Imps sentimental to giving Uncle Sum paternalistic twwers along many lines of legislation or the public need, but little objection wan raised to giving our great and Igood Uncle the power through the (children's bureuu to look after the In terests of the little ones of the country. Julia C Lathrop, who Tea long time was Interested In benefl jomt work In a great social center En the city of Chicago, was appointed y President Taft ns chief of the chll jdren's bureau, which is nn Integral part of the department of labor. The luw relating to the bureau Is simple kind short in Its phraseology, but it la lull inclusive. It makes It the duty of jthe children's bureau to Investigate bnd report upon all mutters pertuiuing rto the welfare of children. i The children's field Is broad. It In cludes virtually everything which can tend toward and promote a policy which has for its object the securing Jof good citizenship for the United states. It is an old saying and the flippant would call It bromldlc, but "as re twig Is bent the tree Is Inclined." In the last report on the work of the bureau made by Miss Lathrop the questions are asked, "Why are there fco mnny deaths among country babies kind country mothers?" and "What iihould the federal government do ibout It?" Recently studies of mater ial and child welfare have been uuder aken In rurnl communities for the ifirst time. It is said that they are more inclusive than the city studies iof infant mortality, nnd that the meth od of approach necessarily has been different, although, of course, the prl flinry purpose Is identical. The desire has been to secure a statement of the social and economic factors which affect infant welfare. In Addition, the work is so planned ns to Becure information concerning mater nal welfare and the welfare of chil dren under school nge and to bring out (certain facts relating to all the chil dren In the family. The cost of carry lug on these studies in country areas lias been much greater than in thickly j populated towns. : The children's bureau takes cogni sance of the argument sometimes brouuht forward against the Impor tance of studies in rural communities, Hhat the death rate of children In the country is lower than the death rate for city communities. There Is a gen eral belief that rural conditions are more favorable to the henlth of ehll idren than city conditions. Hut Miss Lathrop asks if we can afford to rest contented in this belief even If It ap pears to be confirmed by figures of the census tables without intensive study of rural conditions. ' It has been shown conclusively by Investigation that in certain parts of the cities of the country the death rate among Infants Is very much lower than jthe death rate among infants in mnny of the country districts. Today state end other public agencies are seeking Ithe co-operation of the children's bu reau nnd are urging rural studies. ' This co-operation the United States igovernment believes is highly desir able and it will be given as rapidly as ithe bureau's resources permit. "It may well be said that such co-operation will lead to permanent local cen ters of maternal and child welfare and to better local provision for all the needs of growing children. In arty case such rural studies as the bureau has under way and desires to develop fur ther cannot fall to throw some light on the question raised In regard to the welfare of rurnl children, nor can these studies fall to aid -in making clear the Imperative need of raising the level of maternal and Infant care." A summary has Jnst been prepared ty the children's bureau of Miss La throp's report as It affects the welfare of children and mothers In the country districts. This summary follows the two questions which already have been given, but which here are repeated: "Why are there so many deaths among country babies and country mothers?" and "What should the federal govern ment do about It?" The census figures show a markedly high deatli rate among country women pf child-bearing age for which a large number of preventable denths from maternal causes appears to be respon sible. It Is estimated that more than MUCH IN LITTLE A seven-pound electro magnet that Will lift 15 times its own weight has been invented for many uses about machine shops. Babylonia was noted for the excel lence of Its whent and other cereals. Syria and 1'alestlne also produced wheat of fine quality. The shortage of horses In Ireland, with the Increased agricultural activ ity, hns attracted much attention to tractors and motor plows. The easiest way to spoil a good lawn Is to put llower beds In it. Flowers In mass are, or should be, incidentals and placed at the edge of the lawn, but never In it: To enable a womnn to examine her shoes or the bottom of her skirt, there hns been Invented a mirror to be set on a floor and adjusted to any desired angle. Chippendale furniture was made In England. The original pieces were made by Thomas Chippendale about 1750-70. Genuine Chippendale brings high prices, but there Is little to be bud. 15,000 women die year by yenr In the United States from conditions incident to maternity, while the extent of un necessary 111 health Is at present un known. "The sickness or death of a mother Inevitably lessens the chances of her baby for life nnd health, and it Is plain that the question of maternal care in rural districts Is of genuine public Interest." An argument for better care of ru ral childhood Is based on the high per centage of physical defects among children in rural schools given in re ports of stnte boards of health. Miss Lathrop concludes: "These compari sons are n strong indication that there Is room for great permanent Improve ment In maternal nnd child-welfare work In rurnl districts. The day when all rural children shall be well born nnd well cared for Is far ahead, but surely that day should dawn first for the country." In connection with the bureau's ru ral studies a child hygiene expert holds n children's henlth conference, to which parents bring their children for examination and advice nbout dally care (but not for medical diagnosis or treatment). Parents have shown great eagerness for this kind of help in the counties already visited, bringing their children often long distances, over bad roads, and even sucriiicing farmwork for the Journey. State and other local officials are urging the bureau to co-operate with them in similar studies nnd demonstra tions in many states, and a number of rural units to extend their work are among the items for which the bureau asks a larger staff and appropriation. Miss Lathrop believes that such fed eral studies, making plain the neces sity and suggesting a method are bound to lead toward adequate locul provision for maternal and child wel fare. The children's bureau has prepared mnny publications concerning the gen eral questions of child welfare. They will be sent free of charge to parents and to others who are interested In the subject. There nre 'several series of these publications. They concern themselves with virtually every phase of the great subject to which It is the burenu's duty to give Its consideration. It Is possibte that few persons have an adequate knowledge of the breadth of the work which the children's bu reau Is undertaking. It has within Its scope of study, suggestion and action not only the care of babies nnd of children of a little larger growth, but of mothers before and after the births of their children; of feeble-minded children; of training-school efforts; of labor problems ; and, in fact, of every thing which will tend to conserve the life, mentality, physique nnd happiness of the little folk of the United States. Comparatively recently the chil dren's bureau started out on what It calls "Baby-week campaigns." "Baby weeks" have been held recently in many of the large cities of the coun try. These "weeks" can be held suc cessfully In communities of nil sizes. The form that they take, however, will vary greatly in different places. As Miss Lathrop says, "A rural commu nity will not wish to carry out the elab orate program which will seem neces sary In a big city to reach the people. On the other hand, many large cities may not be ready at a certain time to carry on an elaborate program which will demand considerable expense and the constant labor of many people, but mny be anxious, nevertheless, to bring the subject of babies to the attention Artificial lace closely resembling and much more durnble than the genuine Is made from cellulose by a French In ventor. The Ilawallan Islnnds nre becoming so popular as a res-t for eastern mil lionaires that all the steamers sailing for Honolulu nre crowded to their ca pacity. The Cunard steamer line hns let a contract to the Seattle Construction nnd Drydock company for the build ing of six steel freight steamers, the cost of which will run over $0,000,000. A new pension system under which aged clergymen can receive pensions went Into effect recently in the Prot estant Episcopal church. Another provision makes widows and orphans of the clergy also eligible for pen sions. The total of gifts to Belgium from this country has amounted to about $9,000,000, Great Britain regularly contributes to Belgium, as the out right gifts of Individuals, nbout $500, 000 a month, and In addition to this the government of Oreat Britain has supplied large sums to Belgium in the form of loans. of the public to nn extent which will achieve 'substantial results." There have been "Baby weeks" held In New York, Pittsburgh, Washington nnd mnny of the other large cities of the country. They have been uniform ly successful. The object of the "Baby week" campaigns is to give the parents of the community the opportunity to lenrn the facts with regard to the care of their babies; second, to make known to the community the importance of Its bnbles, the special facts relating to the babies of the community, and the need of permanent work for their welfare. A pnmphlet published by the. chil dren's bureau called "Baby Week Cam palgns" contains minute instructions concerning the methods of starting the "Babv weeks" and of conducting them in communities of various sizes. This pamphlet of suggestion can be had upon application to the bureau In Washington. The children's bureau concerns itself with the maternity side of the great work which It has In hand. "Remem ber the mothers. Well-cared-for, healthy mothers are necessary for the health and happiness of their babies. Find out what your community is do ing to Insure to every mother skilled advice nnd adequate care before her baby Is born nnd during her confine ment, nnd give the importance of pro tecting the mother a permanent place In the educational work of the cam paign." Itecently congress passed a child labor law which places a heavy pen alty upon the Introduction into inter state commerce of goods made or pre pared In factories where little children nre employed. The question of child labor has been n crucial one for many years. Congress was asked time and again to pass n law which would pro tect the little ones compelled by their parents or by the very force of hard circumstances to work before their strength could bear the hardship of toil. The children's bureau has for one of its concerns the safeguarding of American children from the evils of hard, confining employment while they are of tender years. When the real basis of things Is reached, the high death rate among In fants is an nppalling picture. Perhaps It would not be too much to say that to reduce the awful rate of Infant mor tality In this country is the highest aim of Uncle Sam's children's bureau. The question of infant mortality in ur ban and suburban regions Is discussed at length In pamphlets Issued by the bureau. It Is almost a platitude to say that the citizenship of the country depen3s upon the welfare of its children. The United States wants Its children to be healthy, morally and physically. The government takes It for granted, doubtless, that Its desire Is the desire of all parents. The wish is to help the parents and all others In the work of safeguarding the little ones of these United States. The Home Life. "There's nothing like having a little home to go to when you are tired of the world," remarked the sentimental person. "Not If it's the kind of little home where the door bell and the telephone are always ringing, and tho phono graph is always going nnd the neigh bors are always running In to knock other neighbors who are unable to be present," answered the man with a deep-seated grouch.

This la a thing to be avoided by the average man in plan ning his home. He must have charac ter in his house, but let that character be something which will endure to be admired many years after It was orig nated. Freak ornamentation Is all right In its place, but Its purpose should be to attract attention not to stimulate admiration. Because the bungalow type of house Is especially adapted to It, there may be more ornamentation worked Into Its design than could- snfely be used on some of the other types of houses. Furthermore, common practice has es tablished the ornamented bungalow as a structure which Is seen wherever there are bungalows. The warning should consist not so much tn the na ture of a denunciation of ornamenta tion In general as it should be a rec ommendation of the simple methods of ornamentation. Occasionally the searcher after fancy effects Is startled to find that the most . simple designs have the strongest appeal. There Is really noth ing strange about this fact, for it Is true of almost every matter In which general popular taste has an Influence. The evidence of quality, expressed in simple dignity, is the strongest nnd most lasting manner In which to build character into any structure. The matter of cost is one which the average man must give enreful Con Five-Room sideratlon. The question Is not, "How much will It cost to build this house?" It should be, "How much will this house cost to build and maintain for twenty, thirty or perhaps fifty years?" Here again, quality and simplicity are the things which give the fullest meas ure of lasting satisfaction. Surely the builder of homes is building for the future and it is therefore necessary, Floor Plan. In order that his work may live to serve Its full purpose, that he take con sideration of two things: first, that lie insist upon a degree of quality mate rials and workmanship which will as sure the length of life which he wishes to obtain for the structure; second, that he Insists upon nn architectural style In the design of the structure which will be as nearly as possible In keeping with prevailing practice dur ing this period of utility or the struc ture. The first of these two requirements may be fulfilled by his stating definite ly his desires in the matter of speci fications to the architect and by the careful selection of a contractor to do the work, who has established a repu tation for high-quality work. The sec ond requirement is largely up to the architect, but he may be greatly aided by his client if the latter has formed a workable idea as to uie general char acteristics of the building he desires. There was a time when only the larger residences were "planned." The man who had a limited amount to spend on hla house had to trust more 5EDRM. Kj , 111 1 'sV i P1livingRm.i bi Km 1112. T lrLJ FrONTPoRCH. H zi or less to the faith which he hud In the man who did the building for him, Toiluy this man may reasonably expect to see a carefully studied plun with definite and binding specifications cov erlng the proposed building before nny- thing Is decided upon. This develop ment Is logical, since It Is wanted by everyone concerned the owner be cause he wants to see what his money Is going to buy, the builder because he wishes his client to feel that his( work has fully come up to expecta tions. The design shown In tho accompany ing perspective und floor plun Is in tended to carry out the bungalow type of construction with some variation In the usual external appearance. This is accomplished by the use of a roof design which Is mainly of the hip type, when viewed from the front, but which is really a combination of both tho hip and gable types. In order to balance tho appearance and relieve the wide area of shingled surface, a little dormer Is built In front The sides of the house are finished In beveled siding. The porch Is built up of cobblestones capped with white stone or concrete slabs. The corner columns are carried part way up with the stone and are then relieved with tapering square wooden columns. Tho floor of the porch Is of concrete. This house Is preferably finished In some dark shade with white trim. Since the railing of tho front porch Is carried quite high, this porch may be well utilized as another room dur ing the months when the temperature will permit. The living room Is en tered from the porch, the door being at one side of the steps rather than In front of them, as Is usually the case. The large fireplace Is directly In front of the door as the living room Is en terpd. This llvlne room Is not an ex tremely large room, but It is very cozy and should furnish the family a great deal of comfort. A nnrrow bay Is built Into the front wall hnvlng one large and two small windows In 1L There are also two other windows In the room. The dining room Is a somewhat larg er room than the living room and Is fitted with a buffet In accordance with modern practise in house design. The kitchen has the cupboard hnndytothe dining room nnd the sink Is placed un der the two windows which furnish light for this room. The refrigerator is placed in the near entry, that the ice man will not track dirt Into the house. A hall which lends back from the dining room makes the two bedrooms nnd tlie bathroom accessible from the front of the house. The basement is also eutered from this hall. Each bed room is provided with a large closet. All rooms are mnde pleasant with plenty of light, and there is no reason Bungalow. why any part of the house should ever be dark or etuffy. A large basnment Is provided which may be found to be of great service In that it not only provides for a laun dry, furnace room nnd vegetable cel lar, but it also furnishes a place to store any articles which might be in the way on the upper floor. Exercise In Moderation. Exercise in moderation is beneficial, overexerclse Is harmful, and In cases of middle-aged people positively dan gerous. Begin quietly with a game of golf or a walk nnd gradually Increase the amount of exercise. j The best way to treat colds Is to pre vent them. This Involves the so-called process of "hardening." It means fresh air every hour of the day, win-' ter and summer. It means avoiding exposure to direct drafts and wet feet. It means getting the skin to react promptly and properly to different changes of temperature by correct clothing and by cold baths. It means the right diet and nourishing food. It means plenty of sleep nnd an or derly routine existence. It means the child must be free from adenoids and enlarged tonsils. Ladles World. He Moved On. A beggar In San Francisco was given $10 to move on the other day. He is a blind mnn, and each night he sits on the sidewalk, asking for alms while he plays a loud-voiced phonograph. The other night he was in front of the Menx hotel. Just over him was the window of the room of a Sulsan rancher, who was fighting Insomnia and the noises of the great city. "Say, you," called the rancher, "how much do you usually reckon to take in of an evening?" "Ten dollars," said the blind man. "I'm sending ten dollars clown by a bellboy," was the reply.

The experienced eye does not find it difficult to decide whether a diamond Is genuine, for Urn facets of reul ones are seldom so regular as those of fine imitations. With the latter tho great est care is taken in grinding to polish and smooth the whole stoue so that there will be Irregularity in the reflec tion or refraction of the light. A neces sary tool for testing Is the file, which cannot scratch a real diamond, al though it quickly leaves its murk on an Imitation. Better than the file Is the sapphire, for tho sapphire Is the next hurdest stone to the diamond. Any stone that a sapphire can scratch Is assuredly not a diamond. If you put a small drop of water on the upper facet of a brilliant and touch it with the point of a pencil the drop will keep Its rounded form, but tho stone will remain clean nnd dry. Iu case of an Imitation the drop Immedi ately spreads out. Plunge a diamond Into water and It will be plainly visible and will glitter through the liquid, but an Imitation stone U almost Invisible. If you look through a diamond, as through a bit of glass, at a black dot on a sheet of white paper you will see one single point clearly. If you see sev eral points or a blur of black It is an imitation. The white sapphire, the white topaa and rock crystal are fre quently sold as diamonds, but imita tions are more commonly made of glass. MANY GOLD COINS ABRADED Are Often Found by Banks to Be Be low Weight Fixed by the United States Treasury Department. Gold coin in circulation loses weight more rapidly than most people realize, and it is suld that a great amount of the gold In circulation on this coast is abraded below the limit of tolerance at which the United States treasury will receive it, says the San Francisco Chronicle. A good deal of this lightweight money Is ac cepted by the banks, as Is discovered whenever a national bank makes a gold payment to the Federal Reserve bank. Probably the banks have now become educated, but when the first payments were mode to the reserve banks it was found that considerable gold which passed current among banks would not be received by the reserve banks at face value. It is safe to assume thut all gold coin received by banks is sorted, the perfect coins being held in the vnults and the worn pieces paid out over the, counter so that the ultimate loss which is inevitable is borne by the last Indi vidual holder. Congress is now asked by the treas ury department for authority to re ceive for a limited period all gold coin nt Its face value. That which is abraded will then be recolned and the integrity of the circulation restored. Duration of American Wars. The first American war, that of the Revolution, dated from April 19, 1775, to April 11, 1783, a period of eight years; the Northwestern Indian wnrs, from September 19, 1790, to August 3, 1795; the war with France, from July 0, 1703, to September 30, 1800; the war with Tripoli, from June 10, 1801, to June 4, 1805 ; the Creek Indian war, from July 27, 1813, to August 9. 1814; the War of 1812 with Great Britain, from June 18, 1812, to February 17, 1815; the Seminole Indian war, from November 20, 1817, to October 21, 1818; the Black Hawk Indian war, from April 21, 1831, to September 30, 1832; the Cherokee disturbance or re moval, from 1836 to 1837; Creek Indi an war or disturbance, from May 5, 1836, to September 30, 1837; the Flor ida .Indian war, from December 23, 1835, to August 14, 1843; Arobstock disturbance, 1836 to 1839; the war J with Mexico, April 24. 1840, to July 4, 1848; the Apache, Navajo and Utah war, from 1849 to 1855 ; the Seminoje war, from 1856 to 1858 ; the Civil war, from 1861 to 1865 ; the Spnnlsh-Amerl-enn war.

A very common weakness keeps many people from finding whnt is near them Interesting; they see that only on Its paltry side. The distance, on the con trary, draws and fascinates them. In this wnv t fabulous amount of good will is wasted. People burn with nrdor for humanity, for the public good, lor righting distant wrongs; they walk thrnnch life, their eves fixed on mar-"" velous sights along the horizon, trend ing meanwhile on the feet of passers- by, or Jostling them without being aware of their existence.
