(PLAIT PE0P0SED BY KANSAS WOMAN Srs, Jnei Lewli of Kinsley Sars . JPrmtti Hed Amucmcnt The . SlJ 't the City Is Not to Make .: iid Af emtal Imprarraient. , Mrs. James M. Lewis of Kinsley, ;tlan., believes that farm life in Kansas j could be made more attractive by the f establishment of country clubs, says a Tcpeka dispatch to the Kansas City i Star, ; She believes that the farmers are t es well prepared for club . life" as the J residents of the cities and that this system would prevent the restlessness among the young people which causes them to leave the farms and go to the ( city. ' On this subject she said at a i jneeting of the board of agriculture: It seems to me that the country .club, with its meeting place, the coun try schoolhouse, is possible ; in every community. It offers a plan of com xamml social exchange that will bring much to our Kansas farmers. There is BOtnethlng lacking in the country life In that it fails to satisfy the young peo ple, and there is a continuous stream from the farms to the cities. It cannot fee altogether the desire to make money , that draws the young people, because .their chances are better-on the farms. It isj the desire for amusement, for re creation, for participation in the world's thought and progress things they have not had on the farm. A live, wide- mwsrka rfllh Will kn : hem In niioh ..with the world. We heed clubs in the ' li a j . tuuuuj. iireu bix years on a western (Sansas cattle ranch, and I know the I people la the country are as ready , to respond to all thatlclub life means as th people in the towns. MA constant stream of strong, healthy jroong men go from the farms into the j channels of Industry. The country fur juishefl as good as there is in commerce jtsnd business, but against that is a piti- SCal stream of boys and girls who go from the farms and are swallowed by the other side of life. Many of them go tbecawse a country life has heretofore been wanting in the things that make for dignity and the social graces, things that ought to adorn every life. The rural delivery route, the telephone and the- trolley car have changed this to a certain ; extent, but I know Kansas farmers with good bank accounts who cio not uuBcnoe ror a magazine, wnose , library consists of a copy of the 'Gnl Tveston Flood' and Mrs. Logan's 'Thirty -iTeara In Washington' and whose col leotlon ot art is a set of horrors hfainily portraits. This kind of people re those who need the clubs. . , 1 "About twenty years ago in western (Kansas Colonel J. M. Lewis organized the Wayne Township Farmers club in 35dwards county. Every farmer's fam iiy was eligible to membership. They bought a large tent, for there were no .groves for picnics in western Kansas ;in those days. They met once a month In summer, In the morning they had a : jbusiness session, and the women par ticipated in it' if they liked. The busi ness session was followed by a co-oper-lative dinner. - Every family provided something. In the afternoon a some what formal programme was given. , Sometimes persons from a distance iwere Invited to assist in this. "Later, when a railroad came through this township, Lewis was founded. The fraternal spirit generated in that or ganization makes this town today the center of one of the most desirable fanning communities in Kansas. The children grew up together in friendly intercourse, and one of the results is i ft co-operative commercial company, handling coal, lumber, grain and live tock. It owns a large lumber yard and eta. elevator. Stock in this company is ssot for sale. The annual business meet ings are participated, in by men and .women!'.'" , , ... Holland . Telephone 222.

The youngest globe trotters on record were discovered the other afternoon singing the latest songs in a? Fifth ave nue elevated train : in Brooklyn, says the New York American. After the boys had sung "Bedella" the passengers showered them .with pennies, nickels and dimes, when the taller boy smilingly said: "Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Louis Stern berg. I am eight years old, and me pal here is Frederick Reede. He is only seven, but be is the finest boy soprano in the west, and we're on a trip around the world, all alone. : ; L , "We left our homes in Milwaukee on Dec. 12 with only a few cents In our clothes and beat our way to Chicago, and after we went to see a show we were flat broke. As we did not want to go back home we started singling on the street corners, and we did a great business until the 'coppers chased us because we wouldn't give them a rake off. On the afternoon of the big theater fire me and Freddie coined more money running with messages to the women's husbands telling them they were all safe. We then came to see big New York city on the fastest train in the world." . ' ' Af this the passengers laughed, and Louis, somewhat confused, said: "Well, the conductor told us it was anyway, didn't he, Louis? Well, on that big train the conductor was good to us and let us go through the cars and sing songs,vand In that way1 we made an other bunch of money, and here It Is" the boy pulled out a roll of , bills "and when Freddie and I get over to Eng land we will have the time of our lives," "But how about your parents?" asked a woman in the car. "Oh, Freddie's parents are both dead, and my old stepmother knows I can take care of myself," the boy answered. "We were down to see one of those steamship men, and he told us to come back and he would give us a job as cabin boys on a steamer that is sailing to England Saturday." "Sing us another song," cried an In terested passenger. The boys imme diately began to sing "Please Give Me a Penny, Sir, a Penny, Sir, For Bread," and before they had finished there was hardly a dry eye in the car. TRANSCONTINENTAL WALK. Trio Plan a Tramp From Now York to California. Mrs. Annette L. Place of the Pro fessional Woman's league will walk across the continent. In company with her close friends, Mr. aiid Mrs. Bran nan, Mrs. riace "will -start from New York on March 28 and expects to reach California within a year. 'They will take the journey by easy stages, tramp ing as much each day as strength and inclination ' will permit and lodging where they may on the road. New Jersey, Pennsylvania,, West Vir ginia, Kentucky, Missourilndian Ter ritory, the northern part of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona is the Itinerary thus far mapped out, though the pedes trians 'will feel at liberty to depart from it at any time. "We are undertaking the trip for pleasure," said Mrs. Place, "and mean to pursue it with that end always in view. It has been my dream for years to walk to California, but I had diffi culty in finding comrades brave enough to face the long journey on foot. Our purpose is to return in the same fash ion, though we will come back across the northern states. The opening of spring should give us some excellent weather, and I am looking forward to the trip with enthusiasm." Mrs. Place, though past the years when most women care for such ac tivities, is the embodiment of nervous vigor. She has been a vegetarian for a number of years and attributes her unimpaired health to this fact. Her pe tite figure 'is as elastic as that of a girl. When walking is possible, she scorns a car, covering miles with, apparently.-no fatigue. Sale HAPPY HOME ESSENTIALS. "Feed the Brute' One Woman's Solu tion of Iluaband Problem. '" The Social Economics club of Chica go, an organization made Hip of women representing a score of woman's clubs, has been searching for the "essentials of a happy home." - Mrs. Edward A. Blgelow appears to have suggested one "essential," If the applause which has greeted her words by the "other half" can be taken as a criterion. She says: "Feed the brute good, well cooked food and forgive him." The husband, father and provider was only mentioned Incidentally and as a possible though not altogether an indispensable requisite. Some of the women In fact, the ma jority of them were strongly of the opinion that the wife and mother was the chief essential. The only good word said of the hus band was this, by Mrs. Carroll, who lives in the country: "It must now and then occur to women, and even to the most advanced club woman, that the home is not quite complete without the husband and father and provider. The wife and mother must recognize in him a piece of household furniture not al together ornamental, only occasionally useful, but very much needed when wanted. "It has taken ages of repression to bring the husband and father to his present condition of abject slavery to the wife and mother. Ho is the victim of a process that began J u the garden of Eden and gives no prom ise of ending until he is called to the reward that awaits the humble on tl' other and brighter shore." Mrs. Anna Richardson of Hull House Woman's club said: "I , should say that the first essential, to a home is love the kind that does not diminish with years of trial. The second essential is cleanliness, in order to make the home healthful and comfortable." r Mrs. L. W. Perce of the Dames of the Loyal Legion placed intelligence at the head of the list "the intelligence that conquers all the petty cares of house keeping." WILL FIT GIRLS FOR WIVES. Wisconsin University Adds a New Department t Ita Curriculum. The training of girls to be wives in stead of mere social fixtures, the teach ing of the practical and primarily , use ful arts of housewifery in addition to the teaching of French, music and phi losophy,; will soon ; be inaugurated at the University of Wisconsin, says a Madison dispatch to the Chicago Chron icle. . , , . A department of domestic science has been authorized. by an appropriation of $15,000, rooms have been equipped as kitchen and laboratory, and ' the turn ing out of domestic experts will begin with the next commencement in June. The appropriation for. this department was made by the legislature after the club women of the state had appeared and persistently lobbied for the meas ure. The old South hall, a dormitory a couple of score of years ago, then chem ical laboratory and in recent years bac teriological laboratory and headquar ters of the short course school of agri culture, was renovated and equipped.. A domestic science expert, Miss Caro line L-. Hunt, was secured and the work is about to begin. The enrollment of the first class will be the limit of the capacity of the department as the Idea has "caught oh" at Madison,' and probably it will be exceedingly popular for the leading society girls to take a course in cookies and pies. . . The course will include scientific and practical study and preparation : of foods, house sanitation decoration and management and domestic physiology. NEW ELIXIR OF I ... Salt For Spinal Diseases Applied by a- Chlcaaro Doctor. Each ninth life of a cat in the future will be continued indefinitely, accord ing to the latest discovery and a new combination of the salt" solution made by Dr. Hamilton Forline of Chicago. Despite this fact Dr. Forline is not a lover of cats. These he uses merely as a means to an end. He hopes in the future to prolong and restore human life, says the Chicago Inter Ocean, i The latest test of the efl&ciency of the salt solution was made after the Iro quois theater fire. One boy whose heart had ceased beating for several minutes was brought to life for a few seconds. On others who were near the point of death the solution acted as a stimulant. At present its broadest field lies In its effects upon spinal diseases. After the heart has ceased beating , for ten min utes the solution Is effective. v Dr.. Forline said the other night: - "This is an entirely new discovery. The elements in the solution have been triedseparately and have k proved suc cessful stimulants, but this combina tion has never been tried by any one. Five per cent of, the solution Is a com mon salt solution extract from the sub arenal glands of animals, and 3 per cent is of orchitic fluid and strychnine. There are also other elements. The quantity of strychnine used depends on the seriousness of the case. j "The application of this solution is also a new feature. Instead of inject ing It into a vein it is injected into the subarachnoid in the spinal column. The cerebrospinal fluid is removed with the needle and in its place is put the solu tion. This goes directly to the vital cen ter of .the brain, which controls the heart action and causes it to begin pul sating." Movinir a liisrlitlionse. The government is engaged in a novel undertaking at Benton Harbor, Mich., jsays the Indianapolis News. The light Ihouse in the harbor has been set on rollers and is being moved about 1,000 feet in the lake. The work was oc casioned by the extension of the main ipier 1,000 feet into Lake Michigan, and the lighthouse will be moved out to the tend of the pier, providing it does not ptopple over and slide into the lake. jftVhen in position it will be possible to bee the range lights from r0 to 100 !xnils alone the Michigan shore.

LIVELY DEBATE OP ILLINOIS 0LUB Mrs. Ward ot Eing-Iewood Say She . Could Live on BO Cents a Day In the Tropics, While Another 3Iem ber Said There Would Be "Some thing nolng" it She Had to Make the Attempt. "Can a woman be happy on 50 cents a day?" This question stalked into the reci procity meeting of the Englewood (111.) Woman's club the other day and put harmony to flight, says the Chicago Tribune. ' The club was discussing "The Work ing Woman; How Can We Help Her?" at the time. Mrs. Coonley Ward made a plea N for the simpler life, and Mrs. Corinne Brown in answering - her brought up the 50 cents a day topic. ' "If the leisure classes would share the burden cf work and live more sim ply," declared Mrs. Ward, "the condi tions of the working people would be greatly bettered. The extravagance In overdress by the leisure class is what causes a great deal, of the misery in the working class. The poorer try to imi tate i those who dress extravagantly, and this effort to Imitate eats away their wages, if women would not be Bo prodigal in dress the working wo-; men would be better off." . Mrs. Brown and Dr. De Bey took is sue with Mrs.. Ward and wanted to know if she could . livo on 50 cents a day and be happy. "I could live on 50 cents a day and possibly be happy In the' tropics," de clared Mrs. Ward, "where1 the demands of fashion are not so grea t. " "I could not live on 50, cents a day and would not, declared Mrs. Brown. "If anybody told me I'd have to there'd be 'something doing."' Mrs. Brown said the working woman could best be helped by being given better wages, taught independence and the value of organization. , She said it was the duty of all women to stick by the working woman in her fight for higher wages. "Higher wages is the chief ingredient of happiness. Money is the surest path to happiness," said she. ( "A woman can be happy on 50 cents a day if she has contentment of mind and sweetness of spirit," declared Mrs. Le ; Grand Lock wood. ; "Education should simplify and sweeten our Jives. It should give us enjoyment of what we have, no matter how little it is, and not make us. miserable." . Mrs. ' Lockwood urged that the best way to .help the working woman was to teach her contentment, to be happy with her lot. ; Mrs. Charles M. Henrotln declared that the best way to help her is to give her greater opportunities. "First," said Mrs. Henrotln, "both the working woman and the woman of leisure should, above all else, keep in touch with their generation and its activities they should develop , intel lectual ' hospitality. ' " ' ' : ; r , "Secondly, , give to the working r wo man opportunities and she will take care of herself. It is within the prov ince of the women's clubs to see that greater opportunities are given to work ing women. Jo the women of leisure I would say: 'Develop your understand ing of the daily lives of those around you, those who are the great mass of humanity. Listen to the heartbeats of the working woman and be in sympa thy with her efforts.' " Mrs. Henrotln rea"d statistics to show that working women receive far less wages for the same amount of work than men. She cited figures in four in dustries which together employ 10,000 more women than men and which pay $30,000,000 less in wages to the women workers. YVUKt RAINS IN KITCHEN. Mistress Objected to Servant Wlno Washed Disb.es WItli One Hand. Elaborate toilets while doing house work do not debar a servant from col lecting her wages, Judgment has been entered in favor of Augusta Perchely, a servantt in the First district court of Newark, N. J., for $4.20, the equivalent of a week's pay, which the court ruled was due her from her former employ er, Fischer Finkelstein of 72 Orange street It developed during the trial of the suit that Augusta had a habit of wearing elaborate gowns with long trains while doing the housework and that this was objectionable to Mrs. Finkelstein, says the New York Times. "Why, she would hold her train over her arm and wash disnes with her sin gle free hand," said the mistress when called upon to testify. "We didn't want a lady in our kitchen." ' The plaintiff! in her own behalf said she had been brought up a lady and proposed to live up to her bringing up. She insisted that her work was done satisfactorily "even if I did dress well." Champion Froar Catcher's Ambition. Newton W. Tomlin of- Jeffersonville, Ind., has announced himself a candi date for school trustee. lie is circulat ing flaming red cards which bear the picture of a huge frog and the legend, "The best frog catcher this section of the country has ever seen." ''I am sub ject to , the action of the Democrat! party," says Mr. Tomlin, "but I base my hope of election on my ability to catch frogs. ; I am a wonderful frog catcher, and so I think I would make a fine school trustee. My platform Is, 'A man who does one thing well can do most things well.' " To Get Bid of Smoke. , A novel method of getting rid of black smoke and at "the same time turn ing it to practical use Is now being adopted in some Belgian factories. The smoke is driven by fans into a porous receptacle, over which flows a stream of petroleum or similar liquid. The smoke is thus caught and turned into a gas that gives great heat and can be used for running gas engines. go every MOTOR ICE SLED. By a Scotsman's Invention One May Make Fifteen Mile an Hour. An extremely clever and novel inven tion is that of a Scot, who has, by the1 aid of an air motor, driven a sled across the Ice, says a Dundee (Scotland) spe cial cable dispatch to the New York American. The sled is able to carry six people and ' consists of a wooden platform mounted on four wooden runners. These runners are shod with steel, the two in the front of the skeleton being mov able, so that they form a means of guid ance for the sled. The steersman sits in front and guides by means of handle bars shaped like those of a bicycle. The motor of about three horsepower is placed at the back, the propeller be ing four feet in diameter and placed above the motor. The whole can easily be driven at fifteen miles an hour and can be stopped almost at once without much jumping. The method in which the motor is constructed tends to make the sled travel faster against than with the wind, as all the wind that comes into contact with the propeller is util ized as a means of speed. .
