FIRE PROTECTION SUGGESTIONS OF ALL KINDS ARE BEING MADE FOR THEATERS What a St. Paul Woman Thinks of the Suggested Fire Drill —Bad Enough to Take Off Their Hata and Let Men Go Out Between the Acts. Everyone interested in theaters and theater-going: is putting his wits to •work to think out ways and means of insuring the safety of audiences, and so many have been the suggestions that merely to read them all is quite a task. The New York and Chicago pa pers are full of the subject, and all the agitation in regard to the matter must result in some good. It has been left for some one in St. Paul, however, to offer the prize suggestion, and that is a proposal for a fire drill to be given by theater audiences. Now this may sound very well at first thought, but surely in its practical working out it would never do at all. In the first place, it is very doubtful whether the very words "fire drill" would not result in a scramble for the doors, even if the manager was announcing there was nothing- the matter. There are many persons who would Immediately suspect there was a fire, and the attempt to drill an audience might end in the very panic they were hoping to avert. In the second place, it is a question whether a theater management has the right to tell a comfortably seated audi ence to rise and walk out without a moment's notice. When they really found out It was a drill it is much to be doubted whether that manager would be popular afterjvards, even though he was working for the public good. It Is to be hoped that it will never be tried; it has worked well in schools where children understand they are drilling, but to try it in a crowded theater— and with the recent horror in every body's mind—would certainly be dis astrous. A St. Paul woman said the other day when she read of the pro posed drill: "Heavens! Pretty s.>.m women won't go to the theater at all. It's bad enough now to have to take off one's hat, and then get up after each act to let some rude men out, but if we are to march out every night like a lot of children I, for one. will refuse to go at all. It's the silliest thing I ever heard of; if ft is to protect the public it must be done every night, for the au diences vary each night. Just one hysterical woman might precipitate an awfjil scene. Surely no sensible peo ple would ever do such a thing. When it. comes to theater-going, women should be more considered; the discom forts they have to suffer now keei> many of them at home. I have one friend who says that theater-going has been entirely spoiled for her since the modern way of taking off hats has cojne into vogue. If women could go in- cars merely with lace over their heads as they do in Europe and then leave their wraps outside it would be a different matter. But this thing of pil ing your wraps up in front of you and pinning your hat to the back of the Beat and have some man rub all the Mimming off when he comes in and goes out, it really makes theaters too much work. And then, If, on top of that, we have got to grab our things and march out and in for a 'fire drill" people will not stand it. Women won't, that's certain." This woman voices the ideas of many persons on the subject of drilling theater audiences. Besides, all the au thorities agree that St. Paul is singu larly blessed wit/ very safe theaters and with managers who take every precaution for the care of the public, so let us hope that this ridiculous idea about a flre drill will be dropped. We have troubles enough now with out that. MAINLY ABOUT PEOPLE. Mrs. E. A. Jaggard. of South Ex change street, gave a very pretty tea yesterday afternoon in honor of her guest, Miss Ramsey, of Appleton. The hours were from 5 until 7, and men were included. Mrs. Jaggard was as sisted by her intimate friends and sev eral of the debutantes. Miss Boeckman, of Marshall avenue, gave a dinner last night in honor of Miss Flanery, of Wheaton, 111., who is the guest of Miss Alness, of Ashland avenue. Miss Florence Finch entertained last evening at supper after the theater in honor of Miss Holabird, of Chicago. Mrs. Louis Nash, of Holly avenue, is entertaining Miss Leonard, of Michi gan. * * * The annual meeting of the Young Women's Friendly association was held yesterday morning. * * * Beginning next Monday afternoon Mrs. Henry C. Burbank will give a se ries of lectures on "Italian Art" at the Centra] high school at 2:30 under the auspices of the Art Workers' guild. Mrs. Burbank is a well known autilor- Ity on art and is resuming the class which has been led by Mrs. Metcalf for several years. THE COMING OF PROF. FENOL LOSA. Prof. Ernest F. Fenollosa. who is corning here to give a course of lec tures for the art workers' guild of the art school, is not unknown to St. Paul audiences. He became extremely pop ular during his short stay here last year, and lovers of art will be glad to know of his approaching visit. The man himself, aside from his knowledge of art, is of interest, and has had an eventful career. He was graduated from Harvard in 1874, and continued his art studies in Boston, and in 1878 was appointed professor of philosophy and political economy at the Imperial university of Tokio, and manager ot the government fine arts academy. It was during his work there that Mr. Fenollosa became a student of Japan- CASTORIA For Infants and Children. The Kind You Have Always Bought Bears the // V/fv? __, /? "- Signature of ficctc/UrttS FASHIONS FROM VOGUE Prepared Specially for THE GLOBE. Furs have been so universally worn this winter that it seems as if the origi nator of fashions must also be a good weather prophet, for so far the winter has been uncommonly cold and furs of every kind have been most appropriate and comfortable. Besides gowns and hats being trimmed in every conceivable way with furs of all varieties, there are several decided novelties in the shapes of sep arate neck pieces. Among the smart est are short neckties like the one il lustrated in the accompanying cut which is made of chinchilla, both sides being the same, and is tied in a simple knot at the throat. This mode of fastening the srarf is most usual, but they are sometimes tied in a regular four-in-hand knot.- Only very pliable fins, such as ermine, chinchilla and mole .ue used for these scarfs, which are about four inches wide through the middle and slightly wider at the ends. The gown illustrated is of green chif- ese art. He made archaeological ex plorations, founded art societies In Japan, and when he returned to Amer ica, in 1880, was recognized both in Europe and this country as the world's greatest expert in the history of Jap anese art. He inaugurated the Oriental department at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and lectured in all the large cities of this country during the next five years. In 1897 Mr. Fenollosa returned to Ja pan, where he made a special study of Japanese and Chinese poetry under the guidance of native scholars. He has returned to this country and again to Japan since then, and has delivered many lectures on Oriental subjects. No man in the world is a greater au thority on these subjects than Prof. Fenollosa, and his visit in St. Paul is an event in which all lovers of art will be Interested. He is coming under the auspices of St. Paul's two art societies and the time and place of his lectures will be announced later. GOSSIP FROM GOTHAM. It is unlikely, as two newspapers have announced, that Mrs. W. K. Van derbilt will sail for Europe in two weeks. The Long Island gossips in Oakdale probably started this rumor because so many trunks were sent from the Vanderbilt country home. Those who noticed Mrs. Vanderbilt at the opera a few nights ago were surprised to see her looking so well, but It is not probable she would venture on an ocean voyage in January, when there is noth ing to risk by remaining in any one of her comfortable homes here. Mr. and Mrs. Vanderbilt were married on last April 25 in St. Mark's church, North Audley street, London. The only member of the Vanderbilt family pres ent was the Duchess of Marlborough. Mrs. Vanderbilt has two sons in Har vard, Winthrop and Stephen Sands, who were born of her first marriage. Lewis M. Rutherfurd, now dead, wfls her second husband. Mrs. \ randerbift is 44 years old and her husband is 55. Mr. Vanderbilt is so rich that the di version of some of his fortune from his present children, the Duchess of Marlborough and W. K. Jr., who mar ried one of the Miss Fairs, would not do maternal injury to any one. Society is busy playing and talking about "squash," particularly the younger set. At the opera the other night the. few who ventured out to walk in the corridors talked of "squash" incessantly, and in illustrat ing the science of this play and that wriggled themselves into all sorts of positions illustrating the point. Per-' raps they were overzealous in their explanations, because the corridors were cold and the weather was near zero. Mercury wings, done in silver or sil ver braid, are becoming vastly popular with the younger set. Of course, the dowagers like Mrs. Astor and Mrs. Mills will not abandon a tiara of dia monds for the Mercury wings, even though they are the latest fad, but the Misses Mills wore them at the Sloane ball this week and many others were seen with the same style of or nament. Few were of such delicate THE ST. PAUL GLOBE.

The short coat has bolero fronts and double cape over the shoul ders that are stitched on the edges and trimmed with three short cloth straps caught by dull silver button-studded with garnets. Straps also ornament the sleeves and hold the box plaits on the skirt together, and the belt is of gurnet velvet. The hat, which is of a particularly pretty model, is likewise made of gar net velvet and is edged with a band of chinchilla and trimmed with a full paradise plume on the left sjjde. Fur hats and fur trimmed hats are being more and more worn aB the season ad vances and many daring combinations are daily seen. White beaver hats edged with ermine and trimmed with a twist of cloth of gold and pale blue tulle are among the newest and daintiest of these crea tions. design as those worn by the twins. All kinds of ornaments are in vogue this season for the coiffure. Even holly leaves and berries are used, and they make a most effective ornament amid rich coils of black hair, and of course, are inexpensive. Next to the country tea ther.e Is no occasion when women congregate on which so many unpleasant things are said, with that insufferable air of in souciance, as on an opera night, and a pertinent illustration was presented on Wednesday, when Mrs. George J. Gould entered her box. Lorgnettes were lev eled at her, and the busybodles, after criticising the sparkle of the diamonds on her corsage, made the unanimous comment in whispers that she was get ting fat. "Dear me," whispered one asthmatic dowager, "I had no idea that Mrs. Gould would spread so! What a graceful figure she had when she was Edith Kingdon! What a pity! I wonder why she doesn't take more exercise?"

There is no doubt that Mrs. Gould is not as slender as she was when she broke hearts in Brooklyn twenty years ago as a member of the aristocratic Amaranth society, nor when she made her first appearance as a professional in "A Wooden Spoon," when George Gould fell in love with her, but she still is as graceful and charming as then, despite her slight increase in avoir dupois. Stories as silly and as incredible as the one relating to Mrs. Gould —and equally uncalled for and cruel —are just as much part and parcel of the opera as the sißglng"itself., Imagine, for instance, that Willie' K. Vanderbilfs affectionate appellation for His spouse is "First Preferred" and that she calls him "Coupons!" Could anything be more absurd? The Vanderbilts are not built on sentimental lines, and Willie K. Jr. Is one of the most punctilious of the family in his domestic as well as his business relations. The household is conducted as nearly as it can be in America, on the methods of the old English families. Familiarity between husband and wife never is displayed in ""the presence of servants —so that only a gossiping, imaginative and untruth-, ful maid could suggest such a de parture from the conventional. One thing may be set down as a certainty— the Vanderbilts, from the old commo dore down, never have made an osten-, tatious display of their wealth, except on rare occasions, when it c-ouldn't be helped, and Mrs. -Willie K. Jr. has too. much' tact and good sense to make* herself conspicuous 'or ridiculous by addressing her husb;nid as "Coupons." An interdiction, specific, severe and positive, is to be placetf^n romances in riding academies. 7.'-- Athletic grooms with hard muscles, rudder complexions^ and the personal magnetism that comes with vigorous physicaJj-jexerclseT have been playing too great navoe with the tendrils of corseted hearts. The Moro sinl episode years ago was a warning signal and was kept set for a time, but it got out of gear, and the love train, ! with the infatuation train in its-; wake, has been dashing heedlessly on e\er ; since. One of the sweetest' and purest buds in / the # garden of society is "said to be even now infatuated with a riding master who has accompanied her—always at a respectful distance in public— in her canters through the park, 1 and recent circumstances have aroused, the parents to 'a: ' sense of impending* danger. The . girl is pretty, pulsing,, with life, and is tired of the inane sap heads .who follow her about with about* the same display, of intelligence as would so many poodles. She despises v them- as . weaklings, physically and mentally. ; The riding master is her girlish ideal of a real man, and a diet 1, of French romance . has helped to fire her Imagination. That Is the whyfore of at least one interdiction. HOUSEHOLD TALKS. Crystallized leaves and flowers make a delightful addition to a plain frosting, especially when combined with fancy colorings and flavors. Liqueurs give many delicate and unusual flavors, and would enrich the average household cuisine if used In this way. Small cakes, no matter how plain and simple the recipe by which they have been made, never f;iil to please if they are coated with a frosting oj idlest green, flavored with creme oi monthe, with candied mint leaves on top or a frost ing of pale violet, flavored with creme Yvette, with a crystallized violet on top. Of course, there.ls the time and labor, involved in doing all this, but a girl with a taste for fancy cooking would probably enjoy it. For lunch eons or little teas, where" one counts on preparing the edibles at home, such pretty trifles are particularly attractive. A tablespoonful of vinegar added to each pint of water makes a capital preservative for chrysanthemums. The stems of the flowers should be clipped each morning. Haters of hash may find relief from this bugbear in a most appetizing' and economical dish made as follows: Melt two tablespoonfuls of butter in a sauce pan, add two tablespoonfuls of flour, half a teaspoonful of salt, two dashes of white pepper, and gradually one pint of milk, stirring steadily. When the whole is boiling stir in a cupful of stale breadcrumbs, one tabiespoonful of chopped parsley and half, a teaspoonful of onion juice. Take this from the fire and stir in a pint of cold meat of any sort, minced very fine, and the yolks of three eggs, well beaten. , Then add the whites of the eggs beaten to a stiff froth. Pour the whole into a buttered dish and bake in a moderate oven until brown on top. Then add grated bread crumbs and brown again, and serve immediately, with tomato or mush room sauce. Starch in bath towels sounds un comfortable, • but a woman who has tried it says it imparts a crispness to the rub down that Is liked by the men of her family.

From the Superintendent of Schools to the Board of School Inspectors— Gentlemen: Following is a report of the attendance of pupils in the public schools of the city for the school month of De cember. 1903: Number of new admissions 245 Whole number enrolled 24,287 Average daily attendance 21.778 Whole number admitted '.'O,IBO Respectfully submitted, A. J. SMITH, Superintendent. St. Paul, Minn., Jan. 6, 1904. To the Board of School Inspectors— Gentlemen: I renew the recommenda tion made some time ago that the present arrangement or classification of the stud ies, in our school system be carefully and exhaustively considered by a Committe of this Board, appointed for this pur pose. I believe that there are good rea sons for such an Inquiry, and. inasmuch ;is it should result in amending or re adopting our present plan, not alone for "the present, but for many years to come, the Importance of the work cannot easily be overestimated. The Immediate grounds for present con sideration are: First—That our high school facilities must be Increased or the attendance must be decreased by requiring higher scholar ship for admission to the high schools. There i.s not a high school in the*ity that has sufficient space In which to carry forward the necessary work in such a way as to secure the highest efficiency, and there is no room for the Increase that must inevitably result from the present I'liin of admission. Second—The continued objections made to the course of xtudy cannot be silenced by simply ignoring them, or by asserting that the course is the work of those who are regarded as experts, and that it Is in accord with those used in other cities. The question is a simple one, however difficult its solution may prove to be. For what are the schools organized, and do the results meet* reasonable expectations? During the past twenty-flve years many changes of the curriculum have been made, principally, however, by the addi tion of seemingly new subjects. Music, that once served only to relieve a dull mo ment, or to enliven a special occasion, has become a regular standard branch of learning, deemed as essential to promo tion as any other. Drawing, that was, formerly devoted to the acquisition of some skill In preparing some simple fig ures, involving a slight knowledge of construction and with a simple medium, now' calls for the study of art principles and the use of several mediums. Nature study, elementary science, physical cul ture and manual training have been placed upon all programmes In the graded schools. The dally sessions have not been lengthened, and our citizens are asking how it is that the programme can be ao arranged that those studies can be proper ly attended to and yet not result in loss to the few really essential ones that formerly occupied the full day. They claim that at no time in the history of our schools has too much time been given to stand ard studies, and that the present ar rangement secures but a smattering of many things, leading to cramming rather than to mental assimilation, and leaving the pupils content with the mere veneer of learning. So that while all are agreed upon the proposition that our schools are organized to promote the symmetrical development of youthful minds and bodies and to se cure to those seeking an education a well rounded character, there is a feeling of uncertainty—a fear that the present daily programme does not fully accomplish what its advocates claim for it. It should be conceded that the mastery of a few essential studies, by the pupils, should be the chief concern of those re sponsible for the arrangement under which our BChools are operated; that thorough ness and exactitude are sources of moral strength as well as of practical value, and that anything that tends to dissipate, by unduly extending investigation, or that weakens the attention, or interferes with concentration or leaves the pupil satis fled without positive knowledge touching the matter under consideration, Is cer tainly unfortunate. It is not my purpose to offer an argu ment here, but it may not be out of placa to say in behalf of the present classifica tion of school work that those who ap prove these alleged innovations, contend most eloquently that the sole Justification for placing them on the programme Is that they secure greater thoroughness and pro ficiency in the few studies deemed essen tial, that in arranging a course of study all those that contribute to the required result by offering to every other subject on the programme the necessary support, that should form a part of the course, and no others. As to whether their claim is Justified, there is a difference of opin ion, and it Is well to take account of facts rather than to give further time to the consideration of mere theory. Experi mentation has gone far enough. We all desire that our schools should be dominat ed by an enthusiastic and progressive spirit, and the professional skill and de votion should characterize the efforts of our teachers, but mere change from one plan or method of instruction to another or the adoption of some new book or new idea does not, primarily, indicate I an advance, but on the contrary some times results In a backward movement. The progress that we should make must be towards the most serviceable, the most useful forms of education, and the Information we seek to impart should be that which will ennoble char acter, and make of the pupils of our schools useful members of -the com munity. Whether our present arrange ment accomplishes this should be. so far as possible, finally determined, and If amendments are found necessary, they should be promptly made. The questions then, which the Commit tee, if appointed, would have to consider, among others, would be as follows: 1. Are any subjects now required that should be dispensed with altogether? 2. Should the work in any subject be enlarßed? 3. Whether the subjects be abridged, discontinued, or remain as at present, how should the teaching hours of the week be so distributed as to Rive to each its proper amount of attention? 4. Should greater proficiency in the grades be insisted upon, and admission to the high school made more difficult? 6. Should the grade school term of eight years be shortened, lengthened, or remain as it is? 6. Should the high school course be made to cover a period of five or six years as proposed in many quartan? 7. Should distinctions bo drawn in our high school course on special lines such as engineering, commercial studies, art work, special work for girls, etc.. offeiinc different requirements in respect to scholarship and time for graduation? 8. In what way Is provision to be made for relieving our high schools, now greatly overcrowded, and demanding im mediate attention? 9. What should bo the attitude of the Board toward establishment of a trade school? 10. What change, if any, should he made in the present organisation of the Teachers' Training school, In order that Its graduates iimy be thoroughly prepared to enter upon work In any grade In our schools? These are most important matters in which the rlii/.-ns c>r St. Paul are deep ly Interested, and they should bo so pa tiently considered and so fully and wisely determined that no grounds for harsh criticism will exist when the result shall be announced. It is true that a claim might be made that teachers who are supposed to be capable of determining these matters are employed for that pur pose, and that citizens may properly leave the whole subject with them, hut the claim will not -stand. Parents are far too dec-ply Interested in the education of their children to overlook evidences: of the fact that the work is unsatisfactory; that the children lack much in thoroughness; in real Interest: In actual proficiency. Par ents should know what their children aro studying and how and why they follow a prescribed ofder. True co-operation be tween teachers and parents and the sym pathetic support of parents are impossi ble unless the parents have ■ clear idea of the scope and purpose of the work of the instructor. Therefore, in the adjustment and set tlement of the questions ho re presented, it Is proper that the advice and counsel. not onjy of the teachers, but of the civic and commercial organizations of the city, those citizens whose foresight and energy have founded Its institutions and estab lished its prosperity, and of all friends of public or popular education should bf> gladly and earnestly sought and gladly welcomed.
