School for Nonet Offers Scholarship

Brookllne School Solves Problem of
I'atldr Streets Jofca Graham
Brooks Says Chleaa-a lal
erslty Made Mistake.
The Pierce school of Brookllne. Mass.,
according to the Boston Transcript, has
solved the problem of littered streets In
sofar as the school children sre concerned.
At first an attempt was made at ab
stract teaching, but It was without effect.
Then something practical was devised.
Each room held aa election and selected
four representatives for the Good Cltliens'
club, making about fifty in all.
These met and selected officers, divided I
up the streets of the neighborhood snd as
signed a portion to each grade, making It
absolutely responsible for conditions In Its
territory. Waste receptacles wore needod
and the children Interviewed the assistant
superintendent of streeta and got them.
To keep up Interest the teachers are con
ducted by the various squads over what
they call their "beats." Healthy emula
tion has produced most desirable results.
Cleanliness and freedom from possible
contagion made it neccessary that the chil
dren should not handle dirty papers, skins
of fruit and other refuse with their fin
gers, so the manual training teacher got
some volunteers from the club, and collect
ing sticks, were prepared for the workers.
The results of the experiment are mani
fest, and many favorable commenta have
come In from cltlsens and from the of
ficials of the street department. School
papers, which may easily be detected, are
rarely found on the streets. It is observed,
however, that refuse from other sources
continues about the same, and it is thought
It will probably remain ao until adults learn
from the children until the younger gener
ation takes the place of the present care
less one.
The principal of the school says that
one thing Is certain; the inemebers of the
Good Cltljens' club of that Pierce school
who have bent their backs 2,000 times in
the course of a single week to pick up
papers enn never In the whole course yf.
their lives look upon scattered papers In
our streets with Indifference. -'
The plan of interesting the children In
keeping the streets cleon has been tried with
much success by various schools and so
cieties in Omaha and has proven most
successful, not only for the Immediate re
sults, but aa an education to the children
and all who have watched them work.
Their enthusiasm Is contagious and their
appeals Irresistible. '
Opportunity for Nurses.
The Philadelphia school for nurses Is
preparing to take a large class of young
, women for nurses. Training and the
scholarships ' are available for young
women In every state. Preference how
ever,' will be given to young women from
the smaller ; towns and rural districts,
where there la an absence of hospital
facilities. The school In all departments
is a pure'charlty, conducted with no ob
ject of profit. The following explanatory
circular has been Issued by the manage
ment: The dema,nd for skilled nurses Increasea
with the years. Tbousands of young
women hv nsiural graces of the
,.ied nurse, but have never had a chance
to cultlvute i.iu.a, iiu no nave been pre
vented irom improving Ji ir own condi
tion and blessing the race. But a new
day has dawned. Largo hearted philan
thropists have opened wide the door of
opportunity at the Philadelphia school
for nurses, 2210 Chestnut street. Philadel
phia, Pa. A two years' free course has
been established at this institution, wherein
the student Is provided with room,
board, laundry, nurse uniforms, and all
the refinements of a good home, with
suitable training, instruction and actual
nursing In the home of the poor and
among people of moderate Income, and
at the end of the courae the student's
fare home Is paid.
The term can be shortened to eighteen
months by a course of six months read
ing and study at homea course which
Is very valuable In ilueif. Hundreds of
young women, scattered all over the
country, are started In the work, becom
ing not only self-supporting, but a boon
to their respective neighborhoods.
A short course Is also provided for the
woman who wishes to quickly prepare
for self-support and a substantial la
come. Enrollment is now in progress for
a class of four hundred students in the
resident courses next year. Toung women
from the smaller towns and country dis
tricts are favored in the distribution of
scholarships, with a view of conveying
hospital knowledge to all rural communi
ties. Segregation m Mistake.
Professor John Graham, Brooks at the
meeting of the Brookllne, Mass., Equal
Suffrage association recently said:
On the train last week I met a friend
connected with the University of Chicago,
who had been active In bringing about
the segregation of the women students In
the freshman and sopohomore years. He
said to me: 'We made a stupid mistake,
and we have found it out. The students,
separated, are doing less efficient work.
The young men, especially, are not roused
by the emulation to keep up with the
young women In their studies. We be
came frightened In Chicago by the great
number of women applying. We feared
the university would beoome too much a
woman's Institution, and so we derided to
segregate them during the first two years.
But It was an absurd mistake.'
Soma of tho Things that Caatribato
to tho Saeceaafal Mix
tara. Prejudice should not exist whan a salad
Is st stake. There be weak souls that fear
the onion, proud spirits that condemn the
cabbage. Each cf Uiese must yield. "Salad
without onion Is like blank verse." says
one; "no one can make It save Inspired by
genius." Perhaps the best answer to the
housewife's question, the most sensible
rule of choosing would be to use any veget
able that grows In garden; or field, and
combined with any scraps left over fro 51
yesterday's dinner, be that fish, flesh or
fowl. Perhaps this list will aerve to make
the salad an easy thing. Use scraps of
chicken, or lobster, bam,, lamb, beef,
tongue, oyster, shrimps, lettuce, tomato,
string beans, potato, onion, green peas,
beet root, cabbage, cucumber, orange, ap
P'e, trapes, nuts, game, cherries, all sorts
of nab, water cress, salsify, radish, and If
you caa think of anything else, add It to
the list. .
Most delightful of all salads, to the eye
st least, la the tomato. Its bright, glowing
reds, combined with the shaded greens and
whites of celery or lettuce, make a picture
of stlU life unsurpassed by paintings of
rare old Dutch masters. The golden, glit
tering mayonnaise crowns the whole, like
a pro-Raphaellte halo, and completes a
color scheme that would make an artist
groan with envy.
Probably Uie ohfcken salad Is easily queen
xuoiut the common yeovle. This Usa Is
best when made with celery, and the ama
teur should never attempt It without the
assistance of their fair maid among vege
tables. The Skilled saladtst can use celery,
salt and Well-bleached lettuce and make a
fairly savory dish, and One by no means
to be despised. Let no one, however, be
deluded Into using cabbage In a meat salad,
for It wilts In a most humble manner, and
the results are therefore deplorable and not
to be endured. A chicken salad does not
of necessity Imply or demand the presence
of that favorite fowl, for mnuy a dish of
left-over veal or cold roast pork has mas
queraded under the royal title, and nobody
was the wiser. Blta of cold roast or
boiled, either of beef or lamb, may reap
pear In finer form (or" taste) aa chicken
salad and do honor to the name.
Every good cook book has a recipe for
this queen of salads; every domestlo science
club boasts the "only good snd perfect
rule"; every women's magaalne offers an
"Infallible plan" for Its ( creation. Thus
Ume and space forbid a recipe, but Just
ons friendly bint Is due the paUent reader.
Do not chop the btta of meat, but out In
dloe-shaped pieces, Using a aharp knife for
the work. Omit the old-fashioned, hsrd
bolled eggs; mix In a few stuffed olives
and gherkins snd garnish with a plentiful
supply of capers. ,
Old-faahloned sslad makers profess a
scorn for the golden mayonnaise. They
call It woman's dressing and lay .down the
law after this fashion: "Ths elements of
tho perfect salad must be remembered
oil and acid, pepper and salt; us four and
no more. Until these be familiar spirits
let no man call hts work perfect." Let the
oil be from France or California, the pep
per from Nepaul, the vinegar two years re
moved from a good apple orchard. None
of these are vital, but the proportion ah,
there's the rub the priceless secret, and
for that tach man must answer to his own
By a fortunate knack, a happy anecdote,
a pleasant smile, a witty retort, the master
of the salad bowl may so enchant his circle,
so charm the waiting table that they gladly
wait the fruits of his necromancy.
Votee of Experience.
A young girl recently- went to her aunt on
a momentous occasion. Sho explained that
a gentleman was coming to see her.
"I am sure he likes me," she sobbed, "and
and I think he means to. propose. I don't
like to ask mother how I should act under
the circumstances, but "
"Do you like him?" Interrupted aunty,
"Very much," observed her niece.
"Enough to marry him?"
The girl blushed and replied In the af
firmative. "Then," said aunty, with an air of autho
lty, "don't let there be any ahllly-shallylng.
When he pops, don't turn red and look down
at the carpet. Just throw your arms around
his neck, look him full In the face, and
begin talking about the furniture."

A friendly suit will be brought to de

or only, an addition to the present hospital

as Deputy County Attorney Magney has
given the board an opinion that If It Is a

out a vote of the people. If It is an addi

OMAIIA. June . To the 'Editor of The

recommended for passage by the judiciary

register - their vote against this ordinance
until-it Is so amended aa to not rob the
poorer class of cltlsens of an element of
food essential to their welfare. One of the
special sections referred to reads as fol
lows: Rule Any person, firm or corporation
having milk In his or Its possession the
tempersture of which Is higher than 66
degreea Fahrenheit, the milk inapector or
other officer of the health department of
the city of Omaha who shall be author
ized by the health commissioner to Inspect
the same, may seise and destroy such milk
or sdd aniline to It to change Its color, so
as to make It unfit for sale.
This section, as a law, whether It was
Intended to be applied only to the milkman,
or, as It says, "any person, firm or cor
poration having milk In his or Its posses
sion," Is tndlcstlvs of Insanity, prejudice
and ' animosity, as well as Ignorance and
Whether It emanated from Health Com
missioner Connell, or someone financially
Interested, It la Indicative of the mind of
the man who wrote It. It has none of the
"milk of human kindness" In it. The rule
does not name "cow's milk,' but all milk
"human" as well ss "goat's" milk, snd
I doubt not the author would rob the new
born babe of Its nourishment In order to
gratify his dealre to "destroy milk" not
stamped with the approval of the "Ice
dealer" or one of the big creameries. But
suppose ' it waa "only Intended" to apply
to "mltk venders." It means hen that
milk taken from cows cannot be sold or
delivered for from eight to twenty-four
hours theresfter.
It ' means thst those who cannot afford
to keep Ice at an extravagant price must
do without milk or chsnce having sour

milk, for milk cannot be reduced from bloo
heat to U degreea Hahrenholt between th
time It Is tsken from the cows and th
time It Is delivered bi ths morning, and I
per cent of the milk need in Omaha Is d
llvered to the housewife In the forenooi
and even If reduced to a temperature of I
degrees before leaving the dairy, the oft
opening of the Icebox, chest or contalne
on the streets on hot days would raise th
temperature to above 66 degreea. It Is
well known fsct that ths creameries whte
deliver milk cold In the morning take
from supplies thst were shipped Int
Omaha the day before, when It Is place
In the cooler and la reduced to about I
degrees, but Is from twenty-four hours t
two days old when delivered. This ord
nance means that the housewife, lnvalh
infant or consumer of ml lk cannot hav
fresh . morning's milk on the sums day '
comes from the cow-and suppose it Is st I
degrees Fahrenheit when delivered, and sh
cannot afford to have Ice, when the teat
perature noceaaarlly liaes fermentation aet
In and the milk sours, and If It does s
the milk Inspector ought to be called "t
destroy It," and all because a health com,
mlssloner and the city council are great
and more Important than the framers c
our national and state constitutions, wh
crystallserl experience with .tyranny ' Int
constitutions! lsw when they enacted th
provision thst ''No person shall be deprive
of life, liberty or property without due pre
cess of law.'?
But perhaps milk Isn't property. It cet
talnly Is not considered such by a perso
who would destroy It because warm, free'
and pure as nature made It. Such a persor
somehow must havs passed through th
stage of Infancy without oven having taster
one drop of milk, a state not even equate
by savages.
Such an ordinaries does not protect th-
people It Is a detriment to them and a mis
taken conception of their Wants and need
and la an artful scheme to drive the milk
men out of business and help ths big cream
orlja. who cannot get fresh milk Into Omah
In tirft to deliver It when fresh, as th
milkmen ..
Again, another sample of this or
dlnance: v
Rule S-It Is hereby. declared unlawful fo
anv Derson to nour AuVt or cream 1ntendo

Into another can. bottle or recsv
of the streets, or in sny wagon or atry" ex"

Any Derson. firm or eornorstlon founif
guilty of violating Rule I shall be fined noil

In other words. If a milk vender ta pass
Ing my house snd I send my servant on
to get a quart of milk, and ths dealer
pours It from his csn Into a glaaa res
held by the servant, while In a pubik
street or "exposed place," a fine of notl
less than 2S nor more than G0 will be Ira
posed If "we are caught."
I do not believe ths cltlsens of Omahaj
