From "Tho Quilting" by Anna
New York , Oct. 1 ! ! . The piecing of
bed quilts has been one of the most
fashionable forms of fancy work this
last summer , and now that autumn Is
here quilting bees around the open lire

The quilts of all colors and kinds
which have kept lingers busy through
out the summer are placed In frames
and quilted In different designs , with
stitches so tine that It requires the
llnest of needles to accomplish the
This quaint fad is n somewhat stirpi
prising one In an nge where needle
work Is supposed to be n lost art , but
H has many attractions , Its devotees i
say. Patches hnvo wondious possl

together In the form of "log cabins , "
"wild goose chases , " "mystic roses , "
"rising suns , " hexagons , octagons , diamonds

ways as the Ingenuity of the worker
can devise. Gay reds , purples , greens
and yellows may bt > used to produce
fantastic and charming results , and
when the quilt is done It makes a de
lightful heirloom for future genera
The quilts may bo made very useful
tti the present generation , however.
For ' the nursery they are made of
squares < of linen or heavy cotton ,
sketched with designs to bo worked ,
such as Illustrations of Mother Goose

alphabet. These squares , naturally ,
are outlined before they arc put to

white chambrny and cotton arc suit
The "mystic" design calls for n pale
pink calico , a rose shade and n rich
red ; those , with just the right touch '
of green , arc most effective. Twelve | I
blocks make up the pattern. A lovely
design called "four patches" is pieced
out of a calico showing a white back
ground dotted with tiny pink rosebuds.
A "log cabin" quilt pieced this sum

vine running through it. This Is to go

HOBBLED WOMEN CARRIED.
Dancers at Gary , Ind. , Are Unable to 1

Chicago , Oct. 24. Five helpless wat
men were carried upstairs last night , i
one at a time , into the residence of f
Carl Schmidt in Gary , so they could '
attend a hobble skirt party given by
George Clinton was the man who
played ' the role of Joan to these half
dozen , Saphos. Clinton is built for the
part. ' He weighs 275 pounds and 1
stretches the tape to 6 feet 4 inches.
An acceptance to the hobble skirt
party required that the guest wear a
dress of that design. I
Trouble began to accumulate as the
guests arrived , for Mr. nnd Mrs. '
Schmidt live on the second door of the
apartment at Sixth and Jefferson
It is a physical impossibility for an
woman draped in a hobble skirt to'
climb steps , and the host was In despair -
spair until he thought of Clinton , and ; 1
the human elevator Immediately got
on the job.
It was fun the llrst two trips , but' *
after that things began to get serious

onkoy engine as ho deposited his
bird fair burden on the second floor.
Ie was groaning and breathless ns he
et the fourth safely down. As he
taggered up the steps making the
ftli ascent , he would have sworn that
e had climbed to the Masonic temple
oof before he readied the landing.
Clinton will probably bo in big de
nand nt similar pnrties in the future.
While women cnnnot climb in hob-
Ie skirts , they cnn dnnce. Nothing

COFFEE KEEPS PUPILS BACK.
Dl . Scott Child Says It Is the Cause of
Kansas City , Oct. 2 J. Coffee.
Careless or uninformed mothers.
There you have It the formula for
the listless and careless pupil In the
public schools. Make the coffee n lit
tle stronger ; mix In n little more of
the uninformed mother nnd you have
the deficient pupil.
Dr. Scott Child , a medical Inspector
In the ward schools , talked to the City
Hub yesterday of the need of more
careful medical Inspection of the
school children supplemented by the
work of a trained nurse In the more
congested schools. It Is not lack of
food , Dr. Child pointed out , hut a lack
of pioper food , that sends many chil
dren to school "nch day under-nour
"Rend the records ot me moment inspectors -
specters , " he said. "You will be even
more surprised than we were to learn
the number of coffee drinkers among
the young school children of Kansas
City. You will find it not confined to
tin- older pupils nearly ready to go
into tile high school , but oven among
the boys nnd girls G and 7 vear.s old.
"In my work among the schools in
he south section of Kansas City , just
the other day , I was talking to a lit
tle girl. She was C and bright and

hing she spoke of was that 'mamma

bitter , but I've got to have my cup
every morning. " I have hoard several
chlldien make the remark , when we
were making a history of their cases ,
that they couldn't get along without
their coffee. Think of It. mere chil
dren ( | speaking of needing their cof
fee. . The effect of coffee drinking
may not show in their school work at
first it generally does by making the
pupil ' ' listless but if It Is continued ,
the , pupil is almost sure to drop back
and i fail to make progress he should.

her child's chances in school , and in
life , by a lack of care in the prepara
tion of the food , and in permitting the
child to eat and drink what he should
Here nre the suggestions urged by
Dr. Child for improving the health of
the school children :
Educate the parents upon hygienic
principles ; inspect the children carefully -
fully to ascertain whether they have
any physical defects which can be
remedied ; inspect the children regu
larly to prevent the spread of a con
tagious disease or epidemic ; separate
those who are mentally deficient so
they may be given work which will
fit them to earn a living in spite of
this mental handicap.

It appears that the bankers of
Thurston county , democrats and re
publicans , are not approving of the
$50,000 Indian money that Mr. Latta
now lias in his bank. They claim they

portion of It than Mr. Latta , on the
theory that nearly half of Thurston
county is Indian land and not taxable ,
as well as their personal property.
Of course Mr. Latta said , when
questioned about this by Mr. Boyd
last week , "that he was looking out
for Ills own interests. "

for a Democrat.
Chicago , Oct. 2. ) . The speeclimak-
ing phase of the republican congres

Incy of voting for democrats when the

"For tlie man who in Ills neart
wants to preserve fair and reasonable
protection ' for the American wage
earner ' nnd the American producer ,
and who , therefore , wants duties so
adjusted that they will measure the
difference between the cost of produc
tion at homo and abroad , and who in
his heart abhors the democratic fal
lacy of duties for revenue alone , It
would be the extreme of madness to
vote for a democratic candidate for
congress who , although hi' be honest ,
will rob the country cf its surest snfo-
gunrd , " snld Senator Cummins.
"Tho protest against excchsivo du
ties has been effectually made , but
we must not , In the passion of disap
pointment , strike a Just principle be
cause wo may not be satislled with its
present application. "
In beginning his address , Senator
Cummins said it would bo a matter of
regret to him If criticism of his al
leged heresies should become a matter
of embarrassment to the club.
"I believe , " said he , "thai I am In
perfect sympathy with the purpose of
the club , but it ought to bo understood
in the very outset , neither the club
ns n whole nor any Individual moans
is to be held responsible for the view
that I may take of public affairs , nor
for the form In which I shall express
my judgment of the political situation.
"Right , or wrong , I speak for myself
and there shall be no vicarious sacri
fice for my sins. "
