On the Care vof the Feet.
On a Christmas morning, when you were a boy,
pop-eyed with delight over your first store-bought
wed, did grandpa ever take you out for rides on the
dazzling fresh snow, he acting as horsie And did
IlieTg6;it barefooted, as unmindful of the crystals of
frost that crackled beneath his tread as if they had
been rose petals? / ■-. -■: fj. ••.. --.y;-.-/- ■••• ■
We know a grown*upwhose old grandad did that
in the years ago. a And other queer things, too. For i
instance, we've seen him,;at the age of 80, with the
thermometer below zero, chop a hole through the ice
on the mill pond, strip and plunge to the morning
bath, andipuffingly'emerge, ready for a brisk rub
down and ajday's work that would stagger a horse. ,
There were husky folks in those days. But
they lived simply, ate plain food,-worked much
in the open and didn't try to turn night into day.
We began, however, to say something about feet. i
Grandpa's feet, \vhich didn't mind the crackling
snow or the icy water, rarely found themselves ram- j
mcd into hot, heavy shoes. Mostly he • went bare-i
| footed. But when he did wear a shoe it was care-i
fully fitted and removed the minute he entered the
house. x Grandpa also practiced footwashing as re
ligiously as did the folks the Bible tells about.
!We don't suppose he did these things because he
had any theories to test or fads to exploit. Any
schoolboy today could tell him that the pores of the
feet arc among the busiest of the body's poison out
lets; and that, therefore, it's a good thing to go bare
foot now and then, to wade in the dew or to do any
of the outdoor novelties which aid nature in its hard
I task of excrementation. Grandpa didn't know that,
for he had never had the chance to study physiology.
He ; only knew that he had a pair of hoofs beneath
him that a man could be proud of, and that they per
formed without failing the functions for which they
were intended.
Spl ". So it's important to care for one's feet. Watch •
the arch of the foot, that it doesn't f weaken or
drop. At the first sign of trouble, go to a foot
;'i_ii doctor. Use shoes as light, comfortable and .low
heeled as you can get. If you have the nerve, go
Ü barefoot part of the time. If you haven't, if
you're hopelessly fettered by the conventions of
|i society, at least change the hose at short inter
vals (never longer than once a day) and don't
,», spare soap and water!
Above all, don't be ashamed if your foot is long
and wide and substantial or try to jam it for appear
ance sake into a shoe that will cramp it. Let it be
as the good Lord designed it. He knew best.
Better Babies
Washington certainly'is going in for the "better
babies" idea.
Th^-state fair management has just announced
j>ver $500 in prizes for the champion boy and girl
babies in the state at the annual North Yakima ex
hibition of the products of the state.
This is as it should be. The country too long has
given its best to prize hogs and sheep and Holstein
bulls and taken no heed of the babies. The average
fair association offers $25 for the prize stallion and
souvenir spoon for the best bab.v. As a result
breeding of livestock has reached the acme of per
fection in America and the states have to build new
Istate1 state institutions every year to take care of the de
fective children that have been increasing alarm
singlyy^' ;■;■.-]
Of course the mere offering of prizes worth while
for good babies is not going to transfof-ni society, but
it is a straw which shows that society is beginning to
recognize the real big question in our civilization.
The big prizes will cause the people to further con
sider the matter of better babies and when they get
to looking into it they will find a very disagreeable
state of facts with reference to the babies of the land.
A big proportion of them are born defective and it is
up to the state and nation to see what is the matter
and remove the cause. f
t remove the like the father of the mothers' pen
vestigators like the father of the mothers' pen
jsionjidea who have been making exhaustive study
ijMTO already discovered the principal source of the
defective babies in the country, and science is begin
ning a campaign to eradicate the trainity of parental
influences that are responsible for, the vast majority
of poor babes— vice, tobacco and alcohol. "
Little Regard for Fathers
It's "very^discouraging to fathers. Just as they
were looking pleasant; over being exempted $500
worth ; per| child in the Income tax arrangement
along comes a mean old senate committee, or a sub
and proposes that the exemption be limited to two
children. -;-.*-• ' ■
§ JL S,u^"an exemption as originally proposed was in
tended to help out fathers of dependent children of
course, but the fathers who most need help are those
who have large flocks of children. '
2 h,7 ef> w. eVe heard 'old maids and bachelors as
sert that it is as easy to raise five children as two
that one can buy things cheaper at wholesale, and all
that. But it isn't so, and if that old senate thinks it
is going to promote fatherhood with a two kid lim
it, it is going to get a bump.

Mine. Cavallazzi Says Yankee Girls
Are Models of Sy lphlike Sinuousness
NEW YORK, July 10.—When
I the Metropolitan opera house
opens its season, next fall, iU
ballet, for the first time in his
tory, will consist almost entirely
of American girls.
So says Mint. Malvlna Cavalai
zl, director of the Metropolitan
ballet school. She U quite proud
of this fact, in spite of the fact
that she, Mme. Cavallazzl, Is ob
viously not American.
It was at the graduating exer
cises of the ballet school, In the
(opera house. Mme. Cavallazzl'a
pupils had shown moat conclu
sively that they could dance, and
dance wonderfully, whatever
might be their nationalities.
They were marvels of sylphlike
grace and sinuousness, every one
of thpm, from Eva Swain, IC,
who is to be premiere danseuse
asaohia to the ballet next season
down to Ruth Weinstein, 10
who (take It from everybody
present) i 3 goin X to be a sort of
combination of Genee, Pavlowa
and Sarah Bernhardt. when she
grows up.
"The American girl makes a
fine dancer because she is intelli
gent." said Mme. Cavallazzl.
W hen I teach dancing it Is to the
mind, not to the legs, that I give
my attention. If the mind Is
quick to catch a suggestion, the
feet will follow fast enough
The greatest drawback to the
American girl's success as a
daurer is her lack of persever
ance. The moment she has
learned to dance a little, she be
gins to look about for an en
gagement. Twenty-four of my
Bills are now ruining their
chances of artistic success to
make a little money. They have
deserted the school to take posi
tions on the stage.
"A girl is not badly off In the
ballet here at the opera house
The first year she gets $15 a
week, the second $18, and the
third $20 a week, and her In
struction costs her nothing. To
become a finished dancer a ,girl
should stay in the school for
four years, at least."
