j-TH "Vl P II - MEN AND WOMEN NECESSARY TO EACH OTHER : seBf '" 1 Ily ELREUT huhhard. "Hysteria." said thn great Pr. Charcot. "Is a sex manifestation, anj represents an electric explosion resulting from lack of a ground wire." car the doctor's office In I'arls was 1 "female academy," to which hp was one. clay called by a mes senger who enmo In hot haste. The doctor lost no time In Retting a c r o s 8 the street, tunl. ' running up stairs, found a class of twenty youn women, fifteen of whom wero crying, laughing, screaming, singing, and three girls were rtrctrhed out seemingly life less. The terrified 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 bacchante picnic. 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 were teaching these- girls drawing, you said?" "Yes, doctor." "Well, no woman can teach drawing that Is, as weil as a mun. (live each girl a teaapoonful of this medicine three times a day and I'll make arrangements to have these twenty pupils draw an hour dally at Monsieur Maumlcr'a." "Oh, doctor, but they are all young mon In monsieur's classes." "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 leather. 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. ' 1 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.

Passing; a group of grammar school graduates soon to enter high school, thn following phrases were overheard: "There ain't no ball here." "Yes, thera Is; 1 seen It." "I never done no such no such thing." "Git out o here." These expressions and others may be heard In any school yard every day In In the year. More than three-fourths of the boys and girls attending high school converse in language which Is the expression of Ignorance and lack of culture. What Is the mat ter with our school system that so little value seem to te placed on the important matter of con versation T The assistant dean of Harvard, Wil liam. Castle, Jr., complains that the lan guage of the average Harvard student is very poor. Certainly the same may be said of V'. men, and of Princeton men, and of stu dents of all American colleges anj schools. The Rochester Herald, commenting on S this, claims that good language is a mnt ter of feeling, and says: "Slovenly writing is the result of slovenly thinking. No boy will ever write an essay on tho tariff question in good English unless he Is Interested In the tariff question. No Harvard man will ever write an easay on Hegel that will be well written unless Hegel has Inspired him cither with love or with hate. If English boys write better than American boys, as it is asserted that they do, the reason will be found In the fact that Krgllsh boys are more thoughtful than American boys, for there Is far less teach ing of English in Kngliflh schools than in American schools." But English children receive more In timate education in their homes than our children receive. At one of the English hotels a father was heard day after day at the meal hour drawing his little daugh ter out to talk of her school, her studies and her recreations, and his gentle cor 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 and ungrarnmutli'al language pass from the lips of American children unrobuked by parents who know better. Not only unrebuked, but the slang frequently Charity. i iWr SHIP t A-8 In 1 1 Wlfirl I tl !

Even In the shops and streets of Eng land one hears much better language used, with much more agreeably modu lated voices, than one hears In our own country. It Is an older land, and the ap preciation of It Is as one of the virtues have been barked by many more cen turies than America has known. Hut It seems that we might awaken In our schools and In our homes to the very large and Important part which good language plays in the world. We ought to Insist upon having teachers who will devote a few moments each day to the discussion o-this subject with the children, so that It may impress their minds, and that the mere grammar lesson will not be regarded th kni. grammatical education. A card ought to be printed and placed In every school and every home where there are school chil dren, giving a correct version of a few of the sentences so continually misused In daily conversation. Attention to thia card should be railed whenever double negatives are employed or other mistakes made. And by every possible means our children should be made to reallxe the value of good lan guage as an accomplishment. Tou may choose your word like a con- noiseur And polish It up with art: But the word that sways and stirs and stays la the word that comes from the heart. Von may work on your word a thousand weeks, nut It will not glow like one That, all unsought, leaps forth white hot Y lien the fountains of feeling run. You may hammer sway on the anvil of thought. And fashion your word with care: But unless you are stirred to the depths that word Shall die on the empty air. For the word that comes from the brain alone Alone to the brain will speed; But the word that sways, and stirs, and stays Oh. that Is the word men heed. Household Hints To repair a tablecloth, lay it quite flat and cover the hole with a piece of plain Brussels net; tack It on and darn with fine flax. When Ironed it will scarcely be noticeable. When cleaning copper use hot vinegar In which a little salt has been dissolved.

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 arms and the body generally are all hrousht Into p'ay In sweeping and dtistln i and bffdmaklng. 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 now? 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 expensive course of leseone in physical culture, go why not give housework s trial? It Is often difficult for buslnesi (Iris to find the necessary time, bill evn half an hour's brisk housework, combined with a walk to and from busi ness, will do a great deal to keep youf muscles in a healthy condition. Miss Blt-by-the-Flre would find thai after one month's housework that sh was a happier, healthier and better look ing girl. Even if ypur mother can af ford the domeslto service necessary to d4 the housework, you should endeavor to take a part of It upon yourself for yout health' sake Poverty which entails no servant foi the young wife la often a blessing In di guise, medically speaking, because II means that aha has to take a paretic: part In keeping her little home In order The girl who has to eweep and dust end cook for several hours dally Is, othel things being equal, far happier tndlv Idual than the wife fho can "'afford" tt be laiy, who need not do ten minutes good honest work, in, the twenty-rout hours.

"Take more exercise" Is the advice o) nine out of ten doctor to such a patient And so the cheapest and easiest to pro cure of all exercise for thff averagi woman consists In housework, why not try a course of sweeping, dusting oi kitchen gymnastics generally? If you are a sensible woman and In tend to (o In for household gymnastics remember first that housework done wltl open windows and plenty ef fresh eli about is ten times more valuable thai the same work done In badly ventilate raoms.

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 less. That there Is no use to talk of 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 at all. 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 to take the place of the slaughtered, then we shout l see to It that a race be Ixirn that shall hate war as it shall love peace even from Its mother's womb. We should see to It that parentage be imiilo safe, sane and clean. Thn lilcal that has come to the scien tists an'l the prophets of tho world (that mankind cun make of the future what It will by tho bcgettlni; nd hearing of a better race) has come to stay, and what ever other reform must temporarily suf fer because of the needs arising from this terrible war, whatever movements for a better environment must tempo rarily ' go by the board." tho work of eugenics must actively continue.
