teacher explained that one ot ttie girls
had fainted, and when she came to her
senses, bofian to laugh.
Two of the girls that were waiting on
her then began to cry, and as the others
sought to pacify them they, too. caught
it, until the whole room seemed like a
On Inquiry the doctor found that many
of tho girls were subject to such spells.
"What, oh, what shall we do, doctor?"
begged the matron.
"I'll tell you," said the doctor and then
he cast about In his mind, as doctors do,
for whut was best to prescribe.
A bright thought cams to him: "You

"Oh, doctor, but they are all young

"I know that unfortunately but we
can't help It."
The doctor saw Monsieur Maumler, and
arrangements were made to have the
twenty young women go over and join
the class each morning from 10 to 11.
After the class thcra was a "recess"
for fifteen minutes.
The girls were allowed to remnln, too;
so they stayed and compared pictures,
criticised, Joked, and, after a week,
played tag, pussy-wants-a-corner, and a
little Innocent, natural rough-house fol
lowed with the young men.
And. behold, there was never another
case of high strikes In that academy.
In a recent article on education for
women Pr. Anna B. Shaw says: "Ten
women shut In together will worry one
hundred times as much as ten men shut
In together. So, also, a hundred women
shut In together will exhaust themselves
merely "by being together, the sensitive
tenperamcnt eating into each other like
j;ortod(ng; aejds:. . One- of ..the -advantages
of coeducation Is a distinct lessening of
the, emotional and nervous strain among
the women students."
M Just why the presence of men as teach
ers and fellow workers should have a
tonic and quieting effect upon the ntrves
of women I do not know, but there is
certainly less nervous tension, morbidity
and self-consciousness among college wo
mei associated . with men than among
those In strictly women's colleges.
Of course, it is a delicate question tor
a man to discuss, but I am more than
pleased that women are publicly acknowl
edging that it is not only not good for
a man to be alone, but It la a deal worse
for a woman.
Personally, I'll admit I don't know much
concerning the subject In the concrete,
but I'll say right here that If there are
no women In heaven I prefer to remain
in a place no matter what the tempera
ture where the co-ed rulo prevails.

Po you remember the old military cost
that Trilby of Immortal fa mo used to
wear when Billee, tho Laird and Tuffeo
first made her acquaintance? Well, some
thing very like that has become the In
spiration for new street models of serge,
broadcloth and velvet. And tho better
to convey the martial spirit of the times
the color is likely to bo army blue, khaki,
or the brilliant red thiule associated with
the regimentals of French soldiers.
Braid Is an essential feature. Not the
braid bindings that bavo become a bit
common during the last few weeks, but
frogs strappings and ornaments that sug
gest the epaulettes of an officer s coat.
In fuct. sometimes even the epaulettes
are present In the form of black braid
interwoven with gold threads.
Th? proper collar is the one cut high
and straight across the back, leaving the
throat exposed; or the stiff choker band
which completely enswathes the throat.
Tho latter Is considered the smarter, al
though not always the more becoming.
It may be of fur In fact. It is Impera
tive that It should be of fur. If It makes
pretension to style qualities. Sealskin,
astrakhan, btnvcr, marten, monkey, are
all appropriate and contrast well with the
approved color of the military schema of
the new suits. In nearly every Instance
the tuffs are cut extremely wldo and the
necessity for carrying a muff Is done
away with, since the bands are slipped
crosswise under the edge of the opposite
sleeve. This makes a convenient arrange
ment for walking or shopping, where fre
quently the muff is In the. way.
Ono of the most attractive models of re
cent weeks has the coat of army blue
lined with bright red; the collar and
cuffs are of blue suede and tho revers
are faced with suede; tho skirt Is very
short and falls In Inconspicuous folds
about the high laced shoe tops. The lat
ter are of suede, the color of the suit
trimmings, the vamps being of patent
With this costume was worn an odd
little hat, built somewhat like the head
gear of the Cossacks. It was of velvet of
a buff tone, banded with sealskin and
having, by way of ornament, a stiff brush
aigrette headed by a gold braid rosette.
The girl wearing this military t6ggery
was not in the least of the Amason type.
On the contrary, she was rather a de
mure little object with chestnut brown
hair and blue eyes, the cerulean tones of
the latter being Intensified by the blue
ness of the costume.
A type of military suit associated with heroines or literature has be
come the inspiration, for the modern costume. It Is made of blue cloth
trimmed with sealskin. "

this, claims that good language is a mnt

rections were listened to by the child
with respectful Interest.
In one English homn (typical of thou
sands of others) the mother arranged all
her domestic and social duties with the
central Idea of being at the table when
her children came from school, and tho
conversation and topics all served the
purpose of educational uplifts.
One does not encounter many American
mothers on fathers of this type. Slang

I often think that if the girls who spend
o much time, money and energy on phys
ical culture would turn their attendance
to housework as a means of physical ex
erc'se, they would derive a great deal of
profit at a very small cost.
I heard a young Indy the Other daj
grumble hei-auie she could not afford an
expensive course of physical culture.
"Why not try kitchen gymnastics?" 1
replied. "Why not get Interested in
housework and try what dusting and
weeping and bedmaklng will do for youi
health and gord looks?" How ran house
work Imtrove the figure?" she asked In
credulously. H Is quite simple after att. The muscle-
of the spine, the shoulder blades, th

Business girls ar-d girls who stay at
home and yet do not absolutely need to
help with housework, would find how
much even an hour's brisk housework
every morning would do for their health.
Have you ever ob-iorved how closely
the muscle movements nectssitated by
sweeping, dusting, and. above all, bed
making, resemble the physical culture ex
ervlies which are so tr.uch practiced Just
Ball punching Is one of the fads of th
hour. The fashionable ladiea who epeml
so much lime dally punching an elaborate
striking ball would derive just as much
good from poking and punching their bol
sters and pillows If the would engage
upon the homely oeetipallon of making
their own beds.
Turning the mattress enteila a muscu
lar effort which exercises the muscles el
the back and shoulders. Brisk dusting
and sweeping provide healthful exercisi
at the minimum of cost to every woman
who will give housework a trial.
All women must have a certain amount
of physical exercise to keep them In
health. But they cannet all afford at

Eugenics and War
lly KKV. MAIIKL M. IRWIN.
We are being told that, now that this
dreadful war Is upon the world, there Is
no time to be diverted Into the channels
of various reforms. That there Is no usq
to talk of better form of government
while anarchy reigns. That ths-'e is no
use to talk of better supplies and pure
food laws while millions starve.
That there Is no use of talk of better
housing laws while millions are homeless.
That there is no use to talk of better
labor laws and "safety first" devices
whille thousands tramp the street.1 Job

eugenics the breeding of a better race-
when the men of ths nations, tho luthers
of thn race, are rallcl to rot on the
battlefield, leaving beolnd to again
people the earth only the old, the lame
and the halt and the blind.
No use to talk of a better race in the
face of the possibility of having no race
All this sounds sane and loaical if we
are to admit that this old world of ours
has really come to an end; If life has
really gone out of It, and only the un
burlei dead all unwitting that they are
dead are left to stalk about the land.
But and if In our nation, at least
there still be signs that life Iw nut ex
tinct, that the blow, though fierce and
the shock benumbing, still leaves us
alive, then we must continue to have
government and food and houwes and
labor and children born. If this civiliza
tion be. Indeed, like the civilisations that
have passed, mortally stricken, then must
we go on to the building and the mak
ing of a new.
If the reforming of the thinxs al
ready with us la of no longer Interest to
the people, then we must see to It that
those things henceworth which are
formed be so formed that further ref
ormation be unnecessary.
Eugenics 'ha to do with beginning,
and If w are to have a new race born
