The Woman’s Home Companion
Sketches of Spokane Men Who Are Husbands of Women
Actively Identified With the Club and Social
Life of the City
By Lucy M. C. Robinson.
A practitioner of one of the newest
branches of the healing sciences, and
a student of some of the oldest phil
osophies and literatures, Dr. H. Errell
(aster, has built for himself a life full
of interest. Born in Wilkesville, a
small town in Southern Ohio, he re
ceived his professional education at
Still College of Osteopathy, Des
Moines, lowa, where he graduated in
June, 1906,
The Des Moines school is one of the
group of six associated colleges using
the same standard curricula, growing
out of the original school at Kirksville,
Missouri, which was founded hy Dr.
A. T. Still. Others of the group are
in Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia
and Kansas City, with an average en
rollment per year of more than 600
students in the three larger colleges.
The course is the same as the standard
Class A medical course, with the ad
dition of the osteopathic features.
Like most new branches of science,
osteopathy has had ditficulties in com
ing to its true field of usefulness, but
it is now recognized in all States, most
of them having state osteopathic ex
amining boards.
“Recognition has been so rapid in a
large way, in recent years, that it is
keeping our profession breathless to
keep pace with our opportunities,” Dr.
Caster said. Many big concerns all
over the United States, corporations,
insurance companies, ete, are putting
osteopaths in charge of relief work.
Here in Spokane at least three big
companies have taken this course,
The idea of their own hospital here
is something the profession refuses to
give up. It is in line with building
programs elsewhere, and would be of
the greatest assistance locally, In Los
Angeles the Los Angeles County Gen
eral Hospital, the second largest gen
eral hospital in the United States, is
completing a new 225-bed addition en
tirely for osteopathic purposes,
On Dr. Caster's desk, as we talked,
was an article on philosophy which he
was reviewing for the author, a per
sonal friend. For several years Dr.
Caster has devoted his reading time
largely to the older Masonic literature,
his studies taking him deep into his
tory and the older religious records. A
confirmed reader, he says he hates to
waste time on the “Literary Digest”
type of passing thought, when in his
tory and philosophy there are the eter
nal verities,
Mrs. Caster was Miss Edwina Blak
slee, of St, Joseph, Mo. They were
married in Des Moines in 1907, and the
three daughters, Catherine, Eloise and
Betty, are well known members of the
junior society and high school set here.
Dr. Caster is a member of York
Lodge No. 234, A. F. & A. M., in the
Scottish Rite; the Lions Clab, the
University Club, and the Spokane
County Osteopathic Association, One
of his interesting hobbies is his con
nection with the local Isaac Walton
Delicious tarts may be made with
jams and je'lies. A rich pastry should
be used and the pastry cooked bhefore
putting in the spoonful of jam. That
attractive glazed effect is secured by
brushing the top edges of the tart
with the beaten yolk of egg diluted
with one teaspoon of water. Put the
tinished tart with jelly or jam filler
in the oven for a few minutes, then
serve with a dash of whipped cream.
The most important event on the
social calendar for the week is the
delightful tea to be given Thursday
afternoon by Mrs. Bedford Brown and
