What "Kitchen C.urdrn Trttiiiine, Mean.
How It Wh St.rtexl and by Whom.
Miaa Uuntluston'a Great Work for II er
Less Fortunate Slaters In a Ilia: City.
"There is so much to find fanlt with
and bo mnch to wish for in unch a great
big, dirty city ad ours that sometimes
! the good, sweet, modest facts connected
j with our charitable institutions areover
i looked," said a visitor to the Wilson In-
dust rial school and mission as she came
. away from there the other day. The
l building at 125 St. Mark's place was
turned, nearly forty years ago, from a
factory into the pleasant school house
which it now is. This school, which was
the first institution of the kind in Amer
ica, is not endowed and is maintained
entirely by voluntary contribution. Mrs.
Jonathan Sturges is the first director,
and many familiar names are on the list
The matron of the school is Mis
Emily Huntington, the originator of the
system of kitchen garden training, a
branch of work now carried on not
only at the Wilson school and elsewhere
in this city, but in other American cities
and in Canada, England, Ireland, Scot
land and France. Miss Huntington has
made the mission house her home, and
here she watches day by day the results
of the methods which she has estab
lished. It is with a fascinating interest that
one listens to the tale of how by the
merest chance Miss Huntington, at
eighteen, just out of school and ready
to be ushered into fashion's pleasures,
chanced to be taken by a friend to visit
a "ragged school," and how the only
daughter of fond parents put society
and the usual amusements of youth
aside, and not in the same manner, but
with the same motive as her cousin, Fa
ther Huntington, set herself about mis
sion school work.
Nobody could work with Miss Hunt
ington's energy and her capacity for or
ganizing without developing new ideas
which should bring forth more com
plete work, so as time passed on and she
gained experience, not only among the
poor, but with her own class, she made
various discoveries. One was that the
leisure of some of the young girls of her
acquaintance might readily be put to
good account, and another that kitchen
gardening might with profit be adapted
to the rich as well as the poor.
She obtained the co-operation of some
of the mothers and the interest of the
girls, so that a meeting was called for
the purpose of developing a plan of
movement. Fifty girls met at the house
of one of the elder women. This was in
1867. It was proved that most of them,
no matter how well versed they were in
Latin and geometry, knew absolutely
nothing about domestic science, so ar
rangements were made for forming a
normal class which should be divided
Into companies, these companies to go
to the mission for regular days of teach
ing. These young women, as . their paths
divided, removed to Boston, Chicago
and elsewhere and set np kitchen gar
dens of their own, with the result that
the system has spread everywhere. It
might even be said with truth that the
other thought, that of the Working
Girls' clubs, emanated from this mis
sion, for Miss Grace H. Dodge was one
of the fifty young women who joined in
the work there, and it was no doubt be
cause of the experience she gained at this
time her idea was conceived and devel
oped. The girls became kitchen gardeners
themselves, and afterward, when mar
riage had placed some of them in homes
of their own, they wrote to the founder
of the system, "You have no idea howt
kitchen garden helps me with my serv
ants nnd my housekeeping," and to
others it gave the means of livelihood
when unforeseen reverses of fortune
made them dependent upon their own
It must be confessed that "kitchen
garden" is a rather misleading name,
for it suggests to many a place where
vegetables are grown for kitchen use.
When Miss Huntington was asked about
the name, she said: "It means a system
by which all the intricacies of domestic
l science are taught sweeping, dusting,
washing, ironing, waiting- at table, etc.
I thought a little of changing the name
at one time because it was confounded
with the term vegetable garden, but I
found nothing that quite took its place,
and I soon discovered that the fact that
the name had to be explained gave it
The school hours are the same here as
elsewhere from 9 to 3. There are about
200 girls, ranging in age from five to ten,
and there are the usual lessons in read
ing, writing and arithmetic, which come
under the head of study. The training
in the kitchen garden branches is little
else than a systematized form of play,
and this takes up a proportionate part of
the school day. New York Tribune.
Hickel Armored Ships Can't Go North.
The remarkable discovery of the ef
fect of temperature on the density of
nickel steel is likely to have an im
portant bearing on its use in the con
struction of war vessels. After this va
riety of steel has been frozen it is read
ily magnetized, and, moreover, its den
sity is permanently reduced fully 2 per
cent, by the exposure to the cold. It it
stated that a ship of war built in the
temperate climate of ordinary steel and
clad with say 3,000 tons of nickel stec-I
armor would be destroyed by a visit to
the arctic regions, owing to the con
traction of the steel by the extreme low
temperature. New York Journal.

So Says m Hairdresser la Learned 1)1
courne on tho Knbjert.
"About bald heads, now ," said a hair
dresser who prof eased to know all alout
hirsute deficiency and its causes, "they
are as much duo to heredity as are
red heads, black heads, curly head
or heads that are not curly. And
why are men so commonly bald and
women bald ko uncommonly? There
are doctors and men of science who
point to that fact to strengthen their
well known high hat theory of bald
ness. They affect to believe, and in
sist on their belief, that the high tsilk
hat and the hard felt hat are responsible
for most of the baldheaded men, the un
yielding pressure of such headgear con
stricting the blood vessels which nour
ish the hair bulbs, and thus destroying
their vital properties, the result being
death of the roots and unavoidable
capillary scantiness. Women, say these
scientific speculators, do not injure the
vitals of their hair by such means, and
thus are rarely chronically bald.
"Maybe they are right, but I don't be
lieve it. Everybody knows that man,
as the head of the family, has to go to
the front and stay there in the capacity
of the breadwinner. The strain of life
comes the most severe on the man in
that respect. He it is who suffers the
anxieties and battles against the disap
pointments of business, speaking of life
in general. What makes men prema
turely old? Just these anxieties and
struggles. If prematurely old, why not
prematurely bald, which is a natural ac
companiment of untimely age? Woman
has less brain stress. Her sympathies
with the man in his struggle may be
great, and usually aie, but they do not
make the demands on her organization
that tell so severely on the system of the
"I account for much baldness among
men by this theory of nervous exhaus
tion, but then what will explain its prev
alence among men whose circumstances
do not require them either to indulge in
business anxieties or undergo business
disappointments? Thus we see the easy
going man about town, not yet in hit
prime as to years, with no haunting
thought of tomorrow, yet as bald as Lis
grandfather was at seventy. We 6ee the
pampered child of fortune, son of a mil
lionaire father, who toils not, neither
doth he spin, yet Elijah, whom the bad
boys mocked, at the same time the she
bears came out of the wilderness and
dined upon them, was not arrayed in
less hair than one of these. Some might
explain this by the sweeping charge of
dissipation, but it will not do. I have
among my patrons youth of this kind
who are models of sobriety, propriety
and simple living, and yet they are as
bald as doorknobs.
"Heredity is the only explanation that
can be made of this mysterious depar
ture of the hair in early life, although
Professor Eaton, an English scientific
person who has made investigation on
the subject a specialty for years, does not
believe it, and stoutly declares that the
cause of baldness is no nearer discovery
than it was a hundred years ago.
"But whether I am right or wrong in
my theories I know I am right in this,
and that is when a man is once bald he
is always bald, unless his hair has fallen
out from the effects of fever. In that
case it will generally return in time of
its own accord. But a head that has
gradually lost its hair while the ownei
of it is in good physical condition has
lost it for good. If it wasn't so do you
suppose there would be so many bald
headed doctors and barbers?' New
How an Elephant Eats.
An elephant's digestive functions are
very rapid, and the animal therefore
requires daily a large amount of fodder
600 pounds at least. In its wild state
the elephant feeds heartily, but waste
fully. It is careful in selecting the few
forest trees which it likes for their bark
or foliage. But it will tear down
branches and leave half of them un
touched. It will strip off the bark from
other trees and throw away a large por
tion. As it is a nocturnal animal, it selects
its trees by the senses of touch and
smell. Its sense of 6mell is eo delicate
that a wild elephant can scent an enemy
at a distance of 1,000 yards, and the
nerves of its trunk are so sensitive
that the smallest substance can be dis
covered and picked up by its tiny pro
boscis. An elephant's palate is very delicate,
and the animal is whimsical in selecting
or rejecting morsels of food. Youth's
Diarrhea and Digestive Troubles.
The connection between teething and
diarrhea has been considered until of
recent years as beyond question. But
even this is very doubtful. For our
selves, we should have no difficulty the
oretically in supposing that painful teeth
ing might upset the digestion, just as in
nervous older children and adults we see
excitement and mental anxiety produce
like results. But actually, the more the
cases are examined the less certain is
the relation of the bowel trouble to the
supposed cause. Here again develop
ments in the digestive organs may have
an influence, and the effect of heat, either
directly upon the nervous system of the
child or by injuring food, is shown by
the prevalence of these diseases in sum
mer. Dr. Henry D. Chapin in Baby

The literature of "weeping trees" is
enormous, much of it being plainly
mythical, but there is a large basis of
fact upon which most of these marvel
ous stories rest. Many travelers have
described the famous 'rain tree" of Pa
dradoca, Isle of Ferro. John Cockburn,
in 1735, describes a tree at Vera Pas, Cen
tral America, from which pure water
continually dripped from every leaf and
