BACK TO SIMPLE LIFE
Colony of Men ana Women Orrnnls
in Ckleaaa to Find
Twenty-four people, nln women and fif
teen men, have organised a "slmpl life"
colony In Chicago and under the guidance
and Instruction of Dr. Asher Gluck. Aus
trian philosopher and Inventor, began to
live the new life.
The -purpose of th colony, whose mem
bers expect It to number hundred of fol
lowers In Chicago within a year, are to
live a dally existence devoid of everything
unnatural and artificial.
"When our colony takes np Its complete
and rounded life," said T-r. Gluck. the
founder, "we will have absolutely ao its
for th butcher, the bsker and th candle
stick maker. Our needs will be few. simple
and of such a nature that we will almost
entirely supply them ourselves.
"The requirements of the new order, for
which a yet we have not discovered a
suitable name, are most exacting, and for
that reason many people of the world, the
flesh and the devil, have not th requisite
hardihood to mak the sacrifices necessary
to taking out membership in our colony."
' The leader and founder of the sect then
went Into th detail of hi plans. All
Intoxicants, tobacco, meats, candles, lea,
pepper, salt and delicacies are barred front
the menu of the simple life advocates.
When an Individual make up his mind to
com Into th colony he must not only
agree to do without the aforementioned
articles In his diet, but he must agree to
dispense with th use of tooth brushes,
rasor, rasor strop, hair mattresses and a
hundred other supposedly useful and neces
sary articles In ordinary civilised circles.
The next point that receives attention at
tli hands of th simple life advocates is
th matter of rtothtng. - The- -present- dty
attlr la tabooed, v .
Th member will garb themselves In
robe of unbleached linen; their shoe will
be mad of linen, aa well a their hat.
They will dispense with anything resem
bling a corset or a French heel, and the
man that attempts to wsar a collar will
incur the displeasure of his brother and
later in the cult.
Th rule and regulation . provide that
any person filling th requirement of ad
mission can com In and have hi home
without paying any entrance or initiation
fee of any description. The new member
will be expected to work eight hours a day,
sleep eight hours and devote the remaining
eight out of the twenty-four to self-culture,
thinking beautiful thoughts or being agree
able to the other members of the colony.
Rules and regulations, exacting to the
very letter, are provided for courtship and
marriage. When a man decides he haa
discovered his heart's deslr among the
women of th colony lie will Inform the

Aa aged woman waa standing before a
beautiful picture of a blacksmith In a local
department a tors last week. Tb picture
waa a remarkable painting, and had evoked
ao much praise that hundreds of vial tors
thronged around It. The figure was that of
a village blacksmith standing at his forge,
which was biasing with a light that Illumi
nated the whol room.
Th woman cam to th canvas with sev
eral younger women, apparently her chil
dren. They all stood with rapt attention
before the work of art, contemplating tb
light affects and tha beautiful shadows.
On of th younger women asked of the
elderly on what she thought of th picture.
-Well, It' all right but th sleeves," ska
replied. "I lived In the country a long time
and I know something that th painter with
all hla knowln' didn't know. That black
smith's sleeve ara rolled out. Now they
don't wear them that way. A blacksmith
always turns his sleeves In so the flying
spark won't catch." Indianapolis News.

Tha legislative committee of th General

i,utoral, educational and physical condition
of women and child worker. The bill wa
endorsed Usl year bv the lieneral eilera
tlon and much axgreeaive work wa d'n
by women's club In lia behalf. It present
form I an evolution from the proposed
legislation laat yer whh-h called for an
Invesuaatim of ctilld labor, but made no
provision for an rxtenslon of the Inveetlga
tion into Induatrial conditions, under which
the rapidly increasing number of womett
' wag.arner are now working.
A recommendation In the president' rrtee
sg and tne effective work of women a
organisations brought about an expansion
of the scope of the bill, which, when re
ported by the house committee, carried on
I an appropriation of e,"K necsnary to
make the bill effective. Th senate com
i mttte on labor reported it with th ap
rnpriatlon clause stricken out. The bill
I haa passed in tut form. Any Intelligent
effort to Increase the wKlll and productive
value of women and (rlrls by training must
be based on unqueMioned data conernlng
industrial opportunities for skilled worker.
Sine the passage of the bill without th
appropriation the club have been appealed
to for aotlv and unceasing work and hun

Physical Cost Considered.
The physical cost of work ot women In
factories and shops Is graphically drawn
out of his own experience by the famoua
specialist. Dr. A. JaoobU In the February
magaslne issue of "Charities and tha Com
nions." He says:
The wholesale homicide committed by
our recklessness In lavishing untold men
and women and children should slop. This
investigation should relieve our Ignorance
of a great many things which can be
taught only by careful and persistent sta
tistical research. The country should
know, under what circumstances, at what
age, how long, people work, by night or
by day; whether shorter hours could or
should be enforced; whether more school
ing, more physical educstlon should b
Inslnted upon; what it is that In ome
condition caue physical and moral In- .
feriorlty; why there Is lens resistance to
diveaae and death In certain classes; why
there is more injury done by some trades
than by others; why worklngmen show a
greater mortality above 20; why working
women exhibit a longer duration of disease
and a slower convalescence than women lnj
other walk of life; why th girl of factory
age is leas developed than the average;
whether, or why. night work Is so much
more disastrous; and whether what I have
brought out as the personal experience of
those who have opportunltlea to learn in
connection with the calamitous results of
the collision of physical labor with child
bearing. Is correct through th breadth ot
the land. . .
We have no statistics to guide ua. We
have never cared to have them, contrary
to every poor abaolutlstlc or half-clvtltxed
European concern. We are proud here of
"doing thing." Her la something that
America can do.
