1 am willing in spite of that, to voice
my disgust at the treatment accorded

eitecds to the treatment accorded al
most anybody who attempts to speak
at an American banquet.
"In our tour of the country when
the Japanese commissioners were
here we visited practically every large

places Washington. Indianapolis and
St- Louis—were the distinguished
Japanese shown anything that re
sembled politeness, in those cities

Asked to what causes he attributed
th;s lack of culture. Prof. Goode said
he had made no attempt to explain it.
"Primarily it goes back to our
homes." he said. "In many American
homes children are not taught to pay
respectful attention when others are
speaking And if they fail to learn
that cardinal precept of culture when
they are young* it is impossible to
punch tt through their thick skins
when they grow old.
"The Japanese are people of culture
and refinement. No better evidence
of this e\er was shown than their at
titude toward those who so grossly
abused them while they were here. At
the banquets we attended a large pro
portion of the diners talked and joked '
and whispered among themselves
while the visitors were speaking, and
although those speakers were secretly
disgusted they did not convey by word
or sign tfiat they had noticed anything
wrong. Not even among themselves
did they talk about it. There could be
no truer test of true culture than that
"A speaker at a banquet or any
where else is entitled to respectful at
tention and if some are present who
are unw illing or unable to accord him
that much they should leave the room

Copper may be cleaned by rubbing
with the skins of lemon and salt. The
surface should be wiped off quickly
and polished with a dry chamois.
Hygienic cooks declare bread made

from winter wheat, as it contains more
gluten and less starch than the latter
Remember that the shell of an egg
is porous and bacteria easily pass
through it. Keep eggs in a cool place
and keep them covered.
Do not forget that sugar or shorten
ing retards the raising of dough, so
rolls that are made with them will not
be so high and puffy as in doughs
made with yeast.
Butter that is watery and not well j
worked must not be used for cake, as
it will make it heavy.
If you have alcohol lamps, chafing
dishes, and self-heating irons run by
alcohol, be sure that you burn the
right kind. The pure grain alcohol is
costly and the fumes of wood alcohol
are poisonous. Get the denatured
kind, which costs only about forty
cents a gallon.
In using an alcohol lamp be sure
that it is set upon metal or some non
inflammable substance, or your wood
work may be ruined, though a bad
conflagration is escaped. Asbestos

Who Named Pennsylvania"
In connection with a recent sale in
. England of the letters of William
Blathwayt, a correspondent of the
London Daily News makes the inter
esting assertion that Blathwayt and
not William Penn selected the name
for the commonwealth which he
founded in the new world. According
| to this authority, when William Penn
applied to Charles 11. for permission
to name his new colony after the
king. Blathwayt. who was in attend
ance on his majesty, being a stanch
Tory and high churchman, vigorously
objected. "No. vour majesty." said he.
"let the Quaker call it after himself,"
and Pennsylvania accordingly it was
named Secretary of state though he
was. Blathwayt must have been an
odd character, for he contrived to ob
tain the good opinion of both lYpys
and Evelyn at one and the same time,
but he played not fair to the Stuart
cause. "He crossed, l believe, with •
James to Dubtiu and probably joint'd
in the Irish jig with O'Flynn and the
l.ady Bonedetta at Dublin castle and
then apparently went straight back
and espoused the cause of William.* j

was telling a few days ago about the i
struggle for existence that some of
