of a baffling sleeping slckncrs for elRhteon
months, returned Into a state of narcolepsy

hours. The woman lansi-d Into uncon-
sclocnness at a time when her husband and
I her two sons were making every effort
to keep her awoke. After s!pp overtook
her she could not be aroused.
The case was reported to Dr. John D.
Quackenbos, who made a enrcful research
of similar cases and found that the disease
which has afflicted Mrs. 1 lodes has had
no parallel in the history of medical science
since 1777, when the Illness of the Lady of

Aids to Housekeepers.
Every housekeeper experiences from time
to time annoyance in finding stains on
delicate fabrics. There is a way to use the
sun and moisture in removing such stains.
Spread the stain on a large platter and
wet It with whatever Is best for that kind
of stain; lemon juice and salt for Ink;
oxalic acid for fruit, tea, coffee, etc.; soap
and water and starch for sc6rch. Cover
this with a sheet of glass and place it ln
the sun, wetting from time to time.
Carbolic tallow: Bhred mutton suet fine
and put It ln a glass jar. Place the Jar
In a pan of cold water on the fire. Let it
cook until the oil la dissolved. Pour off
the clear oil, and as It cools beat in a few
dropa of carbolic acid. This tallow Is ex
cellent for chapped hands or face. It Is
also good for sensitive or tired feet. Get
the kidney suet for this tallow.
Cleaning the soiled edges of books: Rub
the edges with a rubber Ink eraser and
they will look fresh and new.

Dr. Quackenbos advised the removal of
Mrs. Hodes from her home to a neurologi
cal Institute, where the case could be made
a subject of further study. The woman
gave a complete history of the case before
she gave way to drowsiness. Although she
was weak and emaciated, she' said that she
was ready to submit to any tests during
her narcoleptic state.
Mrs. Hodes awakened on Friday morning.
She displayed no signs of drowsiness on
Saturday night, although she had been
without sleep for thirty-six hours.' There
were no indications of sleepiness at 7
o'clock Sunday mprnlng, but an hour and
a quarter later she asked to be led to her

she bade farewell to her husband and eh 11

a dead person. Her body was rigid and
her Jaws were set like a vise. A pallor
spread over her features and respiration
was almost Impercptlble. Bhe would not
respond to the crude methods used by her
husband and sons In their efforts to
awaken her. Before she prepared for an
other long sleep Mrs. Hodes told ot her
experiences. Bhe Bald that her body was
not susceptible to pain during the period
of narcolepsy, and that she had no per
ception of anything that goes on In the
room where she sleeps.
"I lose control of all of my Ben sea dur
ing the sleep," cald Mrs. Hodes. "The
attack usually comes on with sudden
swiftness. A heavy shroud seems to fall
over my eyes. At the same time a dull
noise drowns ordinary sounds. My teeth
snap together and my nose seems to clamp
shut. All sense of feeling leaves my hands
"It Is a horrible sensation. I can- feel
the muscles of my feet, my arms and my
face set tightly. Then a convulsion over
powers my sense of thought, and I know
nothing more until some weird dream
arouses me. I leap from my bed as that
dream reaches its climax, and slowly I
realize that I have been ln a deep sleep
for perhaps two or five days."
Mrs. .Hodes believes that her condition
is due to fifteen operations which she
has undergone. In each case Bhe was tin

of four or five hours. Bhe said that an
attack of insomnia followed the last op

that her system gave way to narcoepsy.

YOUNG heart Is, the secret
of -perpetual youth. The
truth of the statement has
not been contested, yet the
secret remains a secret still!
How win the young heart? Possibly
there's an answer In the philosophy
of Mrs. Charles M. Oelrlchs.
"When the woman of middle age has
an Interest ln lire she is Invincible,"
she says. "This Is the age of the
middle-aged woman. Of course, young
people do things charmingly, excel
lently, but It is only natural that
everything they do must be of sec
ondary Importance to them."
Mrs. Oelrlchs, whose New York
home la In Park avenue, is an ex
tremely popular society hostess. She
Is especially well known ln the New-
port "set." where her daughter,
Blanche, who was married last
autumn, shines as one ot the bright
particular stars. Blanche was tho
"baby" of the family. Now she's gone
and Mrs. Oelrichs, who has always
been the most devoted of mothers,
would seem to have time on her hands.
What will she do with it, I wondered.
So I went and asked.
"Cntll a woman Is 40," said Mrs.
Oelrlchs, "her obligations as wife and
mother are usually sufficient to oc
cupy all ot her time If she performs
them properly. But afterward what!
One's children marry and go away.
One's household duties become re
markably simplified. Even one's hus
band begins to take life easier and
needs less of one's sympathetic atten
tion and encouragement.
"Shall the middle-aged woman
drowse away in cap and spectacles
and shoulder cape, the -way our grand
mothers did? Shall she cling. madly
to all the social dissipations that only
young, strong bodies can successfully
withstand? Our mothers did that
"I think our way Is better. We
fill our vacuum of leisurely days with
some big, worth while work.
"Mrs. Belmont has taken up tha
cause of suffrage even gets up at 4
o'clock ln tho morning to work. Miss
Helen Gould devotes her life to her
wonderful philanthropies. Even I, not
being a brilliantly Intelligent person
like Mrs. Belmont, nor a saint like
Miss Gould even I am going to do
everything ln tha world I can for tho
work that appeals to me most.
"I am going In for the cause of antl
vtvlsectlon. I do think It's so abomin
able to treat the poor animals the way
they do. They perform such horrible
operations on them and don't give
them anesthetics. And sometimes
they Inoculate them with germs and

and months. Just think ot it big, ,

middle-aged woman nowadays to re

tributes of youth she has accumu

"And men are coming to recognize
this, and tho old Idea that a woman
has seen her best days at 40 Is losing
ground very rapidly. Women find
their highest fulfillment as mothers
But after their own children
have left the home nest they are given
the chance to be the mothers of other
children, of humanity.
"They help themselves by so doing
even more than they help others. I'm
not a suffragist yet though Mrs. Bel

but I do think that every woman

oppression, neither would they. This pre-
vnl.cd during the revolutionary period. The
t.'iond was tlic vise of the principle which
would not permit this free people to be
oppressors ot otuor classes. Tills led to
the civil w ur and the -events which are

one of reminiscence. Ho-' Sketched "briefly

ginning with the appearance of the papers
of William Lloyd Garrison and the mobs
which assaulted him at' Baltimore and
Boston. These In turn aroused Owen
Lovtjoy at Alton, 111., whose public utter-1
ances led to his death by violence. Wendel
Phillips was influenced by the events .thus
brought about and delivered his first aritl
slavery address at Fanuel hall, 'When a
mass , meeting of citizens Was condonlni:
the assaults upon Owen Lovejoy at Alton.
He soon became the morning star of that
dawn of freedom. ,
'Briefly, the speaker mentioned tho'h'urrv-

seeking to give foundation for .his1 final
plea for reverence and commemoration of
