Wldsor School mothers' Day.
Friday was patron's day at Windsor
school and the mothers of the district were
guests of tha teachers and pupils during
the late afternoon. It is an annual custom
at Windsor school to give a musical and
social some time during the spring term
and Friday's program has never been sur
passed. The school, one of the several
of the city which has whitewash cur
tains at its . windows, was further bright
ened for th occasion with artistic dec
orations. The feature of the afternoon
was a musical program participated in by
the entire school. The program began
with the little folka and was continued
through th building, th mothers going
from room to room. At the conclusion of
th program th guests were ushered to the
kindergarten, where refreshments were
served and a aoclal hour enjoyed. Alwaya

It Is true he had a breakdown months

as often repeated as present conditions
continue. The relations of cause and ef
fect have been pretty well determined by
th various medical authorities who have
written on th subject. Th heart, brain,
and atomach are naturally "long Buffer

their disposition to lessen the effects of a

Avoid Brla-ht Colors In Candles,
Th superabundance of evidence aa to
the harmful effects of coal tar dyes should
cause all consumers to beware of using
any products containing these dyes. There
Is believed to be very little chance of their
being permitted In any products excepting
butter and cheese. However, the prospects
of their being prohibited has caused many
candy makers to flood he market with
candles painted with them in all kinds of
bright colors, that the dyed sweeta may
reach the- Jobbers and retallera before the
law lnterferea. Parents should use ex
ceeding caution to se that none of these
candies comes Into the possession of their
children, as they are positively dangerous
and many have been killed by them. It is
not difficult to detect the candles colored
with coal tar, or aniline dyes (aniline Is
one of the coal tar dyes), for they are all
of a bright, semi-transparent color. There
fore, the purchaser should use exceeding
caution In avoiding all candles that are too
brightly colored. The vegetable color gives
a duller, more clouded hue, not so lucid and
clear as the aniline colors. This excessive
brightness has long since become a syn
onym for Inferiority In any kind of food
product, and it is carefully avoided by
knowing purchasers. The bright colored
products are cheaper. It is true, but It Is
better to pay a little mdre and avoid the
great danger of taking mineral aniline dyes
Into the system.' These dyes are employed
In coloring cloths. Here they serve an ad
mirable purpose, but their use should be
confined to this field and not extended to
the coloring of foods that people have to
tak Into their system to sustain life.
What to Eat.
There Is a number of different ways of
baking eggs, among which the following
are perhaps best:
Cover the bottom of a low stone china
baking dish with a layer of fine crumbs.
Break as many eggs, one by one, as there
are people to be served and lay carefully
In the buttered crumbs. Sift over them
more crumbs, seasoned and buttered, and
bake until the crumbs are brown. Or cut
thin slices of bread, trim off the crusts,
lay on a thickly buttered dish and cover
with thin slices of cheese. Beat enough
egg to cover the bread, season with salt,
pepper and, If liked, a little nutmeg, and
pour over the bread. Bake. In a moderate
oven until the eggs are set, then serve very
hot In the same dish. Again, slice a half
dozen hard boiled eggs, put a layer In the
buttered dish, sprinkle with grated cheese,
add another layer of eggs, then more
cheese, and so on Smttl all are used. Turn
enough white sauce over the dish to thor
oughly moisten the crumbs, dust with but
tered crumbs and bake ten minutes. Some
times these are known as sienna eggs.
Another variation is to beat the whites
of eggs to a stlfT froth, salt lightly and
spread roughly in the bottom of a butter
dish. Make nests for th yolks of tha
egga some distance apart, carefully lay
them In, dust with salt snd pepper and
bake until the white Is a golden brown.
Baked egga, known as "bonne femme,"
are mad in this wise: Slice two whit or
yellow onions and fry a delicate brown in
butter or olive oil. Butter a dish, spread,
the onions over It, break over them the re
quired number of eggs, season with salt
and pepper and bake in a hot oven. When
done, sprinkle with fried bread crumbs and

Across the center-of the table was a
miniature road paved with rice and out
lined by clusters of pink roses, the stems
supporting them tied with pink ribbons.
At the end of the road waa a miniature
(toy) automobile, with Cupid es chauffeur,
with big rose-colored goggles on. Strapped
1..tho .Vlto waa a tlny trunk tied with
white ribbons and a toy suit case with
foreign labels. This clever decoration
caused much fun among the bridesmaids
and the bride-elect. The favors were little

COMPETITIVE GAMES ARE OBJECTIONABLE
rhysleal Reasons Why Exercises
Baited for Mea arc net Adapted
to Women Orae Shonld Be
"Should women be encouraged to tak
part In competitive athletic and sports?"
Dr. Luther H. Qullck, president of. the
American Physical Education association
and head of the department of physical
education In the public schools of New
Tork, repeated the question thoughtfully.
"There 1 a woman'a problem In exer
cise as there is In many other- things,''
he went on. "Fortunately, with reference
to exercise the differences between men
and women are mora tangible and we
know, the facts upon which those differ
ences rest better than w know those in
connection with political organization,
"Tears ago when I waa beginning this
work I believed that the difference be
tween men and women waa caused by the
difference in their training. I no longer
have any such Idea, I know that th
physique of men and of women differed
In the beginning man to be the fighter,
th protector, women for motherhood.
"Today th industrial center has
changed from th home to the factory.
Thla elimination of Industries formerly
occupying women, such as weaving cloth,
making the clothea, preparing the food,
caring for the domestic animals, etc., -Is
leaving women without suitabl outlet for
their physical activities.
"The time formerly spent by a girl as
an assistant In the horn is now spent
in school. She goes from school to col
lege, to business, to the factory, to the
office, to many different occupations,
"This has decreased her physical activi
ties and Increased her mental and nervous
activities. It has delayed or deterred her
from marriage, and her home today. If
she has one. Is an added drain on her
mental and nervous rather than upon her
Purpose of Physical Training;.
"Physical training 'should assist in ad
justing women to their new envldonment.
Business life and Independence In women
tend to develop certain masculine qualities
In them. Physical training should not
accentuate these qualities, but rather
hould help to make girls and women
healthier and better able to bear th bur
dens of womanhood and motherhood.
It should develop their feminine charac
teristics, grace In speech, dress and car
riage. "Physical directors should bear In mind
the physiological difference between men
and women and between boya and girla.
"At birth boya as a rule are taller and
heavier than girls. From the eleventh to
the sixteenth year the girls are taller and
from the twelfth to the seventeenth year
they are the heavier. From then on to
maturity the boys forg ahead In weight,
height and strength.
"That men are bigger and heavier than
women la obvious. But are they stronger,
weight for weight?
"The returns from examinations Instituted
in our colleges for men and women give
a conclusive answer. Bulk for bulk, weight
for weight, men are muscularly stronger
"But this Is only the beginning of the argu
ment. Women are shaped differently from
men. . At an equal height and weight, a
man's shoulders are broader than a
woman's. Bo that In every form of gym
nastics or athletics which depends on lev
erage and strength of shouders he man
will excel, even if he Is not muscularly
stronger than the woman.
"A further handicap is placed on woman
in the size of her hips. Her trunk also Is
longer. Therefore, in all gymnastic work
in which the weight of the body Is held by
the arms, such aa work on the parallel
and horizontal bars, a woman has to sup
port the bulk of her weight farther from
the bar than does a man. Her center of
gravity is lower.
Mere Man's Advantages.
"These physical facts do not differentiate
all t- n from all women, because there are
exceptional men who have shoulders and
hips such aa are usually seen on women;
and vice versa, w occasionally find women
who are muscularly stronger than most
men, women whose bones have the lever
age that belongs to men. But I am speak
ing of the average.
"When we come to sever tests of endur
ance we find that woman la not leaa handi
capped. In proportion aha haa decidedly
smaller lungs. The red corpuscle In her
blood are also smaller than those of th
man, so their carrying capacity of oxygen
"The weight of a woman's body In pro
portion to her breathing power la much
greater than that of a man's. For this
reason she cannot compete with him In
running, any more than shs can compete
with him in feats of muscular strength.
"A woman's legs are much shorter than
a man's, and for that reason she cannot
compets with him tn running and jumping.
It a vomu does muscular exercise which
i entirely related to her power, as a man's
muscular evrrclaa la related to his power,
whe will be doing what aha should do, but
she will not b doing work equalling that
don by man. A a far aa exercise relates
to :ha capacity of th individual, th kind
i of work Ann by women should be far
' n're modsiat than that don by men.
i'i-j'. there la another aide of th prob
lem of exerclae for women, th historical.
"From th beginning man has been the
hunter d fighter. Woman has predom
inantly been the home keeper and th In
dustrial worker. v
"During these year, when w ar ex
ploiting woman, she 1' developing our In
dustries; but speaking In a large sens of
biographical history, woman originated
th Industries. The physique of th man
of today la th survival of those men who
had to bunt and fight; and th woman'a
phyalque la the survival of those who
wer good mother and housekeepers.
"Nearly all our athletlo sports ar de
scended from the old bunting and fighting
exercises, and for that reason men ar
better suited for them than women. While
men developed the qualities required In
hunting and fighting, women were develop
ing those that wer related to the home,
to tha arte and the Industries. So If we
demand of man thoae exercises which In
general have alwaya been related to his
life we should also demand of a woman
those exercises that ar related to her
Game Best Salted to Women.
"Th athletlo exercises and gamea beat
suited to women ar moderat and grace
ful, not thoae Involving competition and
atraln all forma of calisthenics and light
gymnast lea, archery, lawn tennla, swim
ming, field hockey, lacrosse, bicycling,
rowing, canoeing, golf, skating, fencing
and basket ball. In all athletlo exercise
tn which women engage good form should
be required rsthr than records.
"Women may be excused for not being

cannot be excused for not being more fln-

There Is a possibility that in th futur

to deliver in connection with the Increas

Increase In the death rate from pneumonia.
Until the nature of pneumonia la fully
understood It la lmposalble to say with
scientific certainty that high buildings
cause the sudden and startling growth of
pneumonia" In the United States.
In 1890 .there was no question that con
sumption" was the worst scourge th
country knew. No other disease claimed so
many vlctlma, the death rate being fifty
points higher for consumption than for
any other disease. By the census of 1900
there is hardly a point's difference in th
mortality rat of consumption and pneu
monia. These fiflrures ehow very significantly
the apparent movement by which, while
consumption is being held In check.. Jhe
death rate from pneumonia .Is increasing
in arialarmlng way. It Is to be noted also
that the sudden prominence of pneumonia
as a great causa of mortality has been
almost exactly coincident with the rush to
construct aky acrapera. Beyond thia there
haa been no proven connection, auch as
science can yet recognize. There may b
Inferences, but they can not be said to
be admitted facts aa yet. ,
Pneumonia Is a disease, however, that
science does regard as mor common among
those who dwell in high localities than in
valleys. A" recent investigation in Mass
achusetts seems to prove that much.
Whether it be that the pneumonlcoccus
thrives better In rarlfled air or the strain
of breathing at the higher level expose
the lungs more easily to the attack of th
pneumonia germ haa never been established
positively. - .
But dampness or the lack of sunlight ar
supposed to be favorable to the growth of
the germ. The sky scraper fulfills thes
conditions when It shuts out the light from
the city streets and at th same time takes
many people to altitudes unusual to th
preceding generation. Indeed, science has
already collected enough facta to make It
possible to form an indictment of th mod
ern sky scraper even If there be not
enough proof to Justify a conviction.
But until th time comes when sclertc
can speak positively on this point it may
be wise for the average man to consider
whether publlo polioy may not Justify at
