Letters of An
- RS. PARNELL, widow of Charles
will publish her husband's letters, about 800 in all. She came to the
decision after going over the letters with her lawyers in a locked room.
The immediate members of the family even are not told what the letters say.
The announcement was hardly out of her mouth before she had 90 protests
from Irishmen against the publication, threatening calamity if she did all of
which promises that the letters will be straight talk.
Parnell, whose mother was the daughter of an American admiral, CTammed
his short life of 45 years with very brilliant, very determined fighting. He was
not only a leader with power over crowds, he was a man of dignity and of great
learning. He was unusually skilled in parliamentary law, using it as a powerful
weapon and making the Irish cause both feared and respected. He began his
parliamentary career as an obstructionist, using his skill to delay other measures
until Irish needs were recognized.
He started the boycot and "no rent" back fires and was arrested under a land
and crimes act specially passed to catch him. But he brought Gladstone to terms.
Parnell's downfall was caused by a domestic scandal; just before his death
in 1891 he married the divorced wife of a British army officer and member of
parliament, with whom he had become compromised, and relations with whom over
a term of years had already ruined his career. Since his death, Irishmen have
realized more clearly than they ever did during the turmoil of conflict, just how
much they owe to this splendid fighting man who opened the way for Ireland's
But many of his correspondents, still living, do not care to have their private
relations with Parnell revealed.
ATJRELIA is a little slip of a woman, olive skinned, black haired, oval faced,
light of step, affectionate, and always stopping her work to watch the
Email boy run his locomotive. A grandmother she says she is, with a
.grandson 3 years old. She whistles as she-wipes the dishes, she whistles gay little
Mexican dance airs and steps out and swings her foot about and waves the dish
cloth and the dish to the interminable tune.
She says she can understand all English, "but not spik it all so well as she
onderstan," but she cannot tell the words "ice hox" from the words "front door"
and willingly and gaily starts off towards the front of the house with the bottle
of whipping cream and laughs when she is pulled back to the ice box, and starts
with a cloth and the scouring soap to remove the messenger boy initials from the
ice box instead of the front door.
She takes the napkin rings from the dining table as she goes out to the
kitchen and throws them up in the air, juggling to keep them all going, and sits
down in the middle of the kitchen floor to laugh till her sides ache when the
small boy spills salt over her freshly scrubbed floor.
When she starts to cut bread she forgets as she whistles and dances, she
forgets to stop until the slices of bread tumble off on the floor about her. She
pats her mistress gently on the shoulder and says, 'You cannot spik the Spanish
so well, I will onderstan the English" and proceeds very lovingly to clean out
the kitchen range with the master's hat brush when she has been asked to peel
the two Irish and three sweet potatoes for luncheon.
But she is sweet and gay and loving and good tempered, and her little dancs
tune is beguiling, and she makes things shine with her dancing whirling rubbing
Her kitchen is cleaner than any negro or American help ever left it.
Putting One's
RIDGE and golf have become more
enthusiastic players. When the Boston boy, Ouimet, won the golf games
in the American open championship, the English papers commented on
his play as more than an exhibition of skill. Several papers speak of him as a
brave player; one says, evidently answering taunts, that Ouimet has proved that
the young 'nn may have nerves of even better tempered steel than the old 'nn
and that golf is a game possible to youth as well as to years.
The London Daily Chronicle says that golf is a splendid game for testing
character; besides aptitude and training, a player must have pluck, patience,
coolness, and determination. The Daily Telegraph says, "He seems to have every
shot in his locker, and he is without exception the straightest driver and most
accurate putter ever seen. He rejoices in a brave stout heart and nerves of steel."
Then all the papers hid England cheer up, for the country is not lost because
one golf championship went to the United States; the diplomatic relations between
the two countries are not likely to be strained; the world will roll around to
another year when Ouimet will go to England and perhaps an English player will
excel him in straight driving and accurate putting; and if, as seems likely, this
Boston youngster shall beat everything that England or any other country can do
at golf, nevertheless England will be glad to see the splendid play.
When Theft
A CURIOSITY of the law and one that makes it seem a very interesting, if
sometimes unfair ?ame, was the decision of a Denver judge with regard
to the passing of a bad check. A man had given the hotel keeper a bad
check in payment of a $12.50 hotel bilL The hotel proprietor caught him and
had him haled before the criminal court on a charge of felony. But it was argued
the hotel keeper had lost nothing of value. He still had his right to collect the
bill if possible, and the unkind guest had come and gone without baggage. If he
had had baggage, his slipping off on a bad check carrying his baggage with him
would have deprived the hotel of a chance to get back at him by detaining his
baggage, and that would have been felonious; or had he made out a check for mora
than the bill and got some change out of the hotel, it would have been felony;
but as he got nothing extra out of the hotel man the hotel man was exactly as
he was when the man was leaving, with the same right to collect the bill, bug
the guest could not be held for felony. It is all very interesting and clever, but
somehow one thinks that the English criticism of our law, that technicalities
often outweigh justice, may not be far from the mark.
Mental Housecleaning
TO DECIDE what you want and stick to it, and not send the mind back over
the waverings endured in choosing, is health and peace. And it is a
cluttered and smothered existence to be unable to rid one's self of the
accumulations of broken furniture, unread books, uninteresting acquaintances, and
worn out prejudices.
The old fashioned housecleaning twice a year, with the shifting and sifting,
was beneficial, and to go over one's way of living and sort out the things worth
while and forget the rest, makes for vigor in joy and work.

MostModern Dress Sensible
Kl Paso Minister Says Extreme
Styles Denote Loir Morals la
Living; Little Interviews.
THINK the most of the modern
dress for women is tasteful and
artistic" said Rev. J. E. Ab
bott, in discussing the topic, women's
dress. "In fact, I think women's dress
was never so tasteful, artistic and
beautiful as now. I am speaking of the
dress worn by the women in general,
the women to whom we look up and
who have a standing in the community.
As for the extreme styles, the high
slits, the transparent waists and the
other extremes, they show worse than
bad taste. Fortunately these are worn
by only a small portion of our popula
tion. Very few persons are foolish
enough to wear these extreme styles,
for they show, not high ar in dress,
but low morals in living. It represents
an evil tendency to my mind. However.
I do not think it shows a. general de
generation of public taste among peo
ple in common, because there have al
ways been, and I suppose will always
be, a class of people who are willing to
go further than other people caro to
go and who always step over the
bounds of good taste. In general. I
think the trim, narrow skirt a sensible
thing, compared with the flapping
yards of material that used to be

to the trim, neat fitting garments worn
by women of good taste. I think these
are an improvement over all previous
styles. However, when they become
as scant as some that we see on our
city streets, I do not think they do
anyone any good. I know 1 have seen
some things in clothes that I wouldn't
want a son of mine to see. I do not
like these airy creations of nothing
ness that some women wear, where too
much of the person is displayed. I do
not think that the extreme slit skirt
does any good, either to the wearer or
the beholder, and It has big possibilities
for harm. All men and women
owe it to themselves and the
world to keep themselves as pure
in heart as they can, and to
uphold right and clear thinking in
all things. Anything, whether it is in
clothing, or other ways, that appeals
to the flesh is a harmful tendency. If
all the extremes of the present styles
could be avoided, I would approve of
the present prevailing mode of dress,
but when it comes to these airv noth
ingnesses that display more than they
conceal. I do not think they do anyone
any good." 3

The Cook Stove
Anthor of "At Good Old SlTrash."
THE cookstove is the boon companion
of the housewife.
The cookstove sticketh closer to
the housewife than a brother, and twice
as close as a husband. The husband sits
across the table from his wife and reads
the paper, but the cookstove snuggles up
close to her and glows in her face, and
burns her apron and her forearm, and
spatters hot lard in her eye.
The cookstove has a temperature of
145 in its oven and 212 in its immediate
vicinity. This is unfortunate, because
if its oven were larger the housewife
might sit therein and be more comfort
able while the meat was roasting on a
chair in the kitchen.
The cookstove consumes coal and wood
with visible reluctance.- It is harder to
start than an automobile. Man thinks
lie is abused because his wife sits in the
tonneau and rests while he toils at the
crank in front and melts his collar and
the surrounding iron work with his rage.
But man has just begun to get his in the
last ten years, whereas women have been
starting cookstoves in one form or an
other since the world began.
The cookstove is mild and dejected in
the winter, and often declines to start
at all. "When the thermometer is 30 be
low nothing but kerosene will start a
cook stove, and many a bereaved husband

wife is at that moment, trying to re
strain it from burning $1.75 worth of
beefsteak to a cinder.
Women may not be mentally capable
of wiping their tired hands and hurry
ing down to the polls twice a year, but
they can do wonderful things on the
cookstove. The cookstove, under woman's
guilding genius, has made millions of
men contented and fat. It has also
made the women of the world the prin
cipal supporters of religion. Somehow
after a woman has come to know a
cookstove inside and out, and summer
and winter, she has a fear of the ex
treme sultriness of future punishment,
which cannot be obtained by a mere
man. (Copyrighted by, George Matthew

women boldly. This Is just the oppo
site of my idea . My principles are only
two: The search for greater simplicity,
and the search for one detail, very per
sonal. Women must wear something
simple, but personal or individual. It
can be personal without extravagance.
Simple things prove most original."
Women Should Discard Corsets.
It was at this point that Madame
Poiret walked across the floor, show
ing her uncorseted figure. Then tho
great modiste said that American wom
en should dispense with corsets for
home and evening wear, retaining
them, if they like, when dressing for
the street.
Then he was asked, "What will be
the next mode?"
"That I cannot tell exactly," he said.
"The mode does not come from theory:
it is a sort of feeling. If it is possible
to get an inspiration or a principle
from any political influence, then this
is probably the reason why Paris re
mains the center of the world of fash
ion, because her people are the most
sensitive and feel all the1 influences
and emotions. When all the world
looks to the orient, the mode becomes
oriental. When Napoleon was in
Egypt women in Paris wore turbans:
when he was, in Italy, Paris adopted
the Pomnelan stvles. When Nanolenn
III was in Algiers all women wore
large striped shawls. Today every-

Artist for Art's Sake.
There was much more of the same
sort of devotion to art for art's sake.
Never by any chance did this French
man desire to make a dollar. He Is,
by his own testimony, a simple artist.
But his story, to the Yankee mind,
calls for no comment.
Tn the person of Paul Poiret is
represented the whole theory of the
French fashion creators. Art they un
doubtedly possess, or are in a position
to command. But in France art and
thrift have ever kept close company.
The eye of the designer may be fixed
on a woman, searching for a keynote of
Individuality; his soul may be soaring
in the clouds in search of Inspiration:
but his mind is fixed firmly and singly
upon the dollar. That Is what he is
after and that is what he gets.
If the American woman, whose com
mon sense demands the adaptation of
Parisian styles before she will wear
them, would but trace the history of
her new gown back to its beginnings
and calculate how much tribute she
pays to Paris, undoubtedly the ranks
of those who are battling for Ameri
can fashions for American women
would gain millions of recruits.

"This Is My Birthday Anniversary"
TO be a good citizen is a wonderful achievement, and it is possible for a
school boy or girl of ten years to be a much better citizen than many
grownups are. For example: Mr. A comes out of the postoffice
with a bunch of mail; he tears open the envelopes and draws out their con
tents, jerks the wrappers off the papers, then envelopes and wrappers are
thrown into the street. Mrs. B goes shopping; on her way home she looks
over her purchases or wishes they were all in one package, and shortly there
is more wrapping paper flying down the street. Now, Tom and Mary know
better than this, and they can do better. Wonder how many of the El Paso
boys and girls whose birthday anniversaries come today make a practice of
picking up and disposing of the loose paper around their own homes.
The list follows:

he becomes the kind of son that his

substantial benefit to be reaped by his

discourage such4 Intimacy. I know

Teach Lad to Spare Birds
Mothers Can Help Save the Song
sters by Retraining from "Wear
ing Aigrettes on Hats.
By aula Wheeler Wilcox
"Please permit us to call
your attention to a great and
serious evil now menacing our lncect
eating birds. Millions of small blnia
In migration are destroyed yearly by
the people of the Southern states and
used as food. This destruction, now
Increasing, is having serious effect
on the numbers of song birds In the
north. Negroes are armed with guns,
and many are proficient in other means
of destruction. In the north, also, large
numbers of foreign Iaboreres coming
from Europe kill small birds for food.
It is only recently that little birds
were sold in large quantities in New
York City, and they are still sold by
thousands in the south.
"The Audubon societies, which hava
already checked the killing of native
birds for millinery purposes, now pro
pose to stop the slaughter of song
birds for food in this country. This
is a stupendous task. It must be dona
by educating the public through the
schools, the press and the clergy, and
by securing better laws and better en
forcement of the laws. A word of en
couragement will be appreciated.
Yours sincerely,

Letter Should Reach Erery Man anfl
This letter ought to reach the
heart and the brain of every man and
woman of common sense and com

It ought to reach the hearts of
mothers of young sons who have ar

express their manly qualities by using
a f;un.
Air guns are only a degreo less men

Mistakes of "Loi-injr Parents."
The average boy teases for a gun,
and receives It as a birthday or
Christmas gift; and proceeds to use
It after being told to "be careful" by
the "loving parent," who goes away
and leaves him to his amusement.

Know what love is?
The love that lasts; that grows
stronger, and more tender, and broader,
f "d, more charitable with the years
the love that is love, and not a passing
sentiment based on vanity or animal
attraction. You have no more com
prehension of that than yon have of the
life at the bed of the ocean!
My son, you don't know what love
is! Keep on trying to learn, and
some day you will know. Fall in
love, and fall out again. Keep a ten
ant In your heart all the time. That
is the privilege of vouth and the com
fort of old age. But don't I beg of
you. don't think of getting married
when you are only 17.
Manicure Lady, Romantic
Head Barber Tell Her Love In the
Fall Ij Cooled hy the Prospect

'66fJT HERE ain't anything so glori-
ous as these here autmun
days." said the Manicure Lady.
eW was all out in the woods yesterd-'V.
and I never seen anything prettier t'iai

was crimson, and It wasn't no dull col
oring, either. It seemed like flames.
Me and sister Mayme just set there on
an old log for half an hour, looking a
the hills across the valley. Wilfred
wrote a poem about it.
"I wish your brother would take a
day off instead of writing that junk
all the time." said the Head Barber.
"And you always have to read his stuff
to me when I am feeling punk. If you
have arranged for a smoker to be
me no more about him."
"All right George." said the Mam
cure Lady. "I don't know why I should
expect you to enjoy anything like
beauty or art anyhow. It's just like
giving charlotte russe to a car horse.
But as I was saying. It seems to ma
that the autumn would be the time of
the, year for romance and love. Instead
of in the spring. I don't know why
there is always so much said and writ
ten about love in the spring unless be
cause it is slushy in the spring, out
you always hear of spring courtships
and spring marriages, and" you hardly
ever hear of anybody getting married
in the fall. That is the time of year 1
would want to wed."
"The only trouble in getting mar
ried in the fall." said the practical
Head Barber, -is the long, hard win
