A Plea That the Nation Must Soon
Heed or Perish.
Airs. Kaymonu KODins, president oi
the Woman's National Trade Union
League, says: "The presence of
woman in the labor field has lowered

should woman underbid man. Home
is the-place-for the weaker sex, and
only to the entrance of woman into
man's field Is accounted the reason
why fewer men are marrying today.
They cannot earn enough to support
two, let alone a family. There should
be no night work for the women and
the hours of labor should be fixed."
This woman sees with acute vision
the trend of the times and realizes,
with other thoughtful people, that the
Increased cost of living and the de
creased earning power of men with
this thoughtless cheap competition
from the other sex and the rapid de
crease In marriage more noticeable
in the larger cities of the countries
-promises a woeful spread of Immoral'
ity and that great bulwark of right
living, the home.
Tha Ham a trend may be seen, in the
breaking up of home life and removal
to hotels, rooming houses and restau
rants. Women who are thus "emanci
pated"! from the duties and interests
of home too often become prey to the
evils that heset the pathway of idle
ness, j
Let us see the organization of a

hood of the land. Instead of wasting
energy in a qulxote campaign for suf

ping the output of a bottle-fed race
that knows not genuine motherhood
except by tradition and the old-fashioned
story book telling cf the real
home life that once was.
Let us see a disappearance of this
hot-house caricature of woman, with
the wasp waist and "higher-life"
fads, and there will be a restoration
of the solid rock foundation of human
virtue and greatness the American

until it seemed to merge its whiteness
in the sky. '
Several times, as they had journey
ed, they had heard the loud roar of an
avalanche.' But now a curious rumb
ling sound, as if some vast body were
being drawn over the surface of the
mountain, fell on their ears. Minute
by minute it appeared to come nearer.
Suddenly one of the men uttered a
cry of horror, and pointed frenziedly
at the mountain.
Bearing down on them, at an even
end seemingly terrible rate was a
moving field of snow. To their ter
rified Imagination it seemed that the
whole mountain was pouring out its
snows in a heaving, roaring torrent
of foam.
Soon they felt it, at first shallow
and easy to resist, but fast rising
deeper, rushing around their feet.
Then each one struggled for his life,
and sought to gain k footheld on the
cracking, frozen surface of the mov
ing snow. On, on, moved the ava

all realized had ' nearly spent itself.
straight across the narrow track, down
towards the deep slope on its left.
Clinging, rolling, tumbling, their faces
scratched by broken fragments of ice,
and their bodies bruised by the larger,
all strove to keep their heads free
in the air.
Of the journey down the slope not
one of the nine wno composed the
party had any clear recollection, and
what their fate could have been, no
one can say had not the gliding mass
encountered the wood at the bottom
of the hollow.
Late in the evening nine bruised fig
ures entered the little town on ' the
Italian side of the pass, resolved at all
hazards to find some employment in
their own country until the snows had
melted sufficiently for them to cross
the Great St. Bernard pass in safety.

A passenger entered a railway car

Rushing Around Their Feet.
without many a warning word had
they set out that morning.
One glance at the pinched, bronzed
faces of the men told that, despite the
fact that the day was warm for the
time of season, their bodies were al
ready feeling the cold acutely. And
the solitary woman at their side
wound her cloak more closely about
her, walking with chattering teeth.
Theirs was a tale of suffering. Only
that morning they .had set out from
the country of their birth, Italy; beau
tiful Italy, with its vineyards, its olive
plantations, and orange-gardens, could
lrnd no work tor them. And now,
buoyed by the hope that every step
was bringing them nearer to a new
country, to Switzerland, where men
said they would surely find employ
ment, they faced the Great St. Ber
nard Pass.
By midday they were halfway up
the mountain, . trudging bravely
through the deep snow. On their
right lay a deep slope springing from
- London's Public Banquets.
It is estimated that there are 30 or
40 public banquets every night in Lon
don the year round, or a total of about
10,000, and that the number of the dif
ferent persons who thus absorb rich
food and wines on' many different oc
casions is 50,000. There appears to
be a fear that this will be as bad for
the sturdy British digestion as ice wa
ter is alleged to have been for the di
gestion of America.
It is not only the ensemble of the 'body which is
beautiful, but each part of it has its individual beau
ty, and, what is more perhaps, its significance. The
ordinary public does , not understand this, being ac
customed to see.. people dressed.1' Otherwise'it would
soon grow used, as the Greeks did, to the idea that
each sentiment affects not only .eyes, mouth, facial
expression and the gesture of our hands, but the
balance of our body, the inclination of its different
parts and the play, more or less powerful, of every
muscle. - - ;' ' v
What makes my "Thinker" think is that he thinks not only with
his brain, with his knitted brow, his distended nostrils and compressed
lips, but with every muscle of his arms, back and legs ; with' his clenched
fists and gripping toes. We live in an artificial age J we even deform na
ture, modifying the natural shape of the body by irrational clothes,' cor
sets, collars and boots. .How can a woman expect to have a foot that is
a poem, as in the Greek, statues, when she massacres it with the modern
tight fitting shoe ? The appreciation of beauty is nowadays a gift as rare as
the faculty of the poet or musician, while among the Greeks the absence of
the sense of beauty was abnormal! 1
I have had Venus of Milo in my 6tudio a score of time, Apollo and
Adonis by the dozen. We pass beauty in the streets, but have no eyes
to see it. We look only for a roguish eye, a full red lip, the graceful
movement of hip or carriage of shoulder, and we attach enormous impor
tance to elegance and dress; but-for proportion and harmony we never
look. And as for the royal beauty of the male, it hardly ever occurs to
us. And as we have no eyes to see, we have no ears to hear. I am no
poet, no musician, but a hundred times I have heard in the forest the
divine organ of which my friend Victor Hugo spoke. But it would
be bad form to stop people in their motor cars to listen to that glorious
symphony. The only way to travel is on foot or in a carriage, slow and
silent. ' " ' ' , 1 ' --
There is a beauty in a leaf as well as in a mountain. The man
who knows, one tree perfectly, the shape of each branch, its aspect under
each change .of light, and shade; the man who knows the beauty of one
woman in all her attitudes and moods, who has drunk of all her gestures,
studied every curve of her body in every light and under all circum
stances, knows more of nature and real beauty than the man who has
been three times around the world, crossed the Eocky mountains, sipped
tea on some Japanese island or "done" the picture galleries of Europe in
a fortnight. ' . v . i

Do Not Use the Box Hive Because It
Is Hard to Get At.
Box hives, says Farm and Home,
are not , advised. Even though you
now think you will never open a
hive, you may change, your mind, and -then
' it will be better to have had
movable-frame hives from the , start.
Tour bees may fall into the hands of
someone who will great prefer the
movable frames. A colony in a box
hive may be queenless; you are help
less; the colony is doomed. -With
movable frames you can easily' deter
mine the condition of the colony and
supply a queen, if lacking.
There is no longer any patent on
the movable frame - and good work
may be done with any one of the dlf-
ferent forms. -The idea that-if you
adopt a certain make of hive you will
get an extra amount of' honey, is all

- Wife of Governor of New York.
I believe that woman
now has an influence in
the community as a non
partisan that she would
entirely lose if she
were to obtain the bal
lot. That subtle, un
named atmosphere which
surrounds her is of more
value to humanity than
her vote could possibly be to the state. She is now free from those cor
ruptions, from those strategies, of which men know so much and women
so little. Is it not well , to have at least one-half the community to which
the word "graft" is more or less an unknown quantity, and "pull" merely
a word that men use in after-dinner conversation, when the ladies have
left the room? .'
I think' that women as teachers as well as moth
ers, do their full share in shaping the country's fu
ture, by shaping its citizens. A more or less
direct method Would be the lessening of this influ
ence. '
Men now respect the opinions of their wives and
mothers, because they know them to be uninfluenced
by any but the broad principles of right and wrong. Of
the petty personalities of politics they know nothing,
and that is the secret of their influence.
Dovetailed Hive.
ular among men who produce honey
by the ton, as well as among amatuers
who keep one or. two colonies for the
pleasure of it Each comb is in a
wooden frame, - and one - or all the
combs can be. lifted out of the hive ,
and returned at will, and this" is true
of all movable-frame hives. ' The
frame used in the dovetailed hive
is called the Langstroth frame and is
17 inches 'long -and V8 Inches deep,
outside measure. i
For the production of extracted
honey, a ten-frame hive is best For
comb honey it is also best, except for
those who pay a great deal of atten
tion to their bees. Such persons may
do as well pr better with an. eight
frame hive, but for those ; who have
only a few colonies and do not expect
to spend much time with them, a hive
so small as one having only eight
frames is not to be thought of. Too
much danger that the. bees will be
scarce of stores and starve in winter
or spring. . ; - '. ..
' Another reason why the larger hive
is better for the average farmer is
that - bees, are not so much given to '
swarming where they are in large
hives. However desirous you may be
now to have your colonies swarm so
as to increase the number of colonies,
you may rest assured that the time
will come when you will be still more
anxious that your bees shall not
swarm. Every swarm - that issues:
