to Get Husbands
Bread-winning girli may be divided
into nine classes with reaped to their
chance to get husbands. These are
nurses, stenographeri, tervanti, shop
girls, factory girlt, school teachers,
telephone operators, dressmakers and
stay-at-home girls, says a statistician,
with whose conclusions, however, you
may not agree.
For chances to marry the trained
nurse heads the list. It is a standing
joke among authors to have the
young man go to war and distinguish
himself as a hero. He is seriously
wounded and taken to a hospital
After weeks of lingering illness he re
gains consciousness. He dreams that
an angel is ministering to him and
opens his eyes. There, at his side, a
red cross on her arm, is a trained
nurse, the girl with whom he had a
trifling quarrel before he marched off.
The close of the romance is plain.
There is an indefinable charm about
the nurse that cannot be gainsaid. She
is dressed neatly, with her little white
cap and starched apron. She treads
softly and her touch is gentle. To a
man just coming out of a siege of
fever, when he has to lie for days at
a time merely gaining his strength,
the coming of the nurse to smooth
the pillow is something to be looked
forward to for hours.
Second on the list is the stenog
rapher. The stenographer is a girl
of some education, refinement and
culture. Her dress is neat, she has
easy hours, and she holds her age
well. In the average office she sees
and comes to know many men a week.
The employer himself often falls in
love with her.
The servant comes third on the
list. There is an old, old saying that
the way to a man's heart is through
his stomach. This is verified every
day by the number of cooks who tell
their employer that they are going to
be mistress of a private table for two.
Like the nurse the servant has the
additional charm of a neat costume.
The salesgirl comes next. She
meets a reasonable number of mar
riageable men. She has many
chances to pick up a certain degree
of culture. By watching women of
refinement their grammar, pronun
ciation and mannerisms, she is the
gainer. : Just these little things
put her in a class above girls who
seldom come in contact with persons
of better education.
The factory girl comes next, and
as a hard worker, she is seized upon
by the single young artisan.
Strange as it may seem, the school
teacher comes sixth in the list of
nine. She has many comforts and
privileges that are denied other work
ing girls. She has a better education,
has shorter hours, can improve her
self in general reading and in culture.
She has more time to devote to her
dress. She can hold her age better,
travel more, but with all that she has
fewer opportunities for marriage than
many another girl. v . ?
. The telephone girl has not the easy
sailing that she is often said to have.
She, too, is separated from the men,
few of whom she ever meets face to
face. When the telephone was new
there was an additional charm to the
girl who sent her voice over hundreds
of miles, but since they are so com
mon, all the romance has gone.
There is only one small chance, and
that ii with the class of men who fall
in love with a voice. ;

No Welcome Here &
Dram for The Bee
by'Batchelor : : : :
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
This is the day .of woman.
We are just beginning to stand oft
and look at ourselves and. consider
ourselves as a problem.
Once upon a time a home and ita
duties satisfied us. : We spun and
wove and baked and sewed and
brought up the children and. rather
enjoyed what ' the woman of today
would be inclined to call drudgery.
Modern efficiency plus modern ma
chinery has taken moat of our house

many women find themselves with
leisure on their, hands and a vast, un
rest in their hearts.
' The world does a great desl of dis
cussing as to what really is necessary
for woman's life.
"Physical well being," says the Ma
terialist. "Exercise and fresh air and
enough money to live on comforta
bly. A woman who has these is
bound to be happy and have a full
and rounded life." . t
The apostle of some new "ism" re
sponds to him scornfully and says
that woman must come out of the
place where material things are and
study her soul. She mustn't think of
her body, but of beauty, all-compassing
The intellectual looks up over his
thick goggles and says, "Nonsense I
What woman needs is work."
The old-fashioned man shakes his
head sadly and declares, "Oh, no:
what woman needs is to give up all
these new movements and the desire
to make her own place in the world
and to come back to the baking and
cooking and satisfy herself in the
AT STORKS AND FOUNT AIMS
ASK FOR and GET
Buy It la th Mtflod glass tare,
Tha Best is always the Cheapest
Substitutes cost YOU same pries
home as her mother did before her."
But woman herself shakes her head
to all of this. She has looked out
into the-world and seen' that it has
need of her and she knows that she
has need of it. Perhaps there is a
vague unrest in her heart, but there
are ideals, too. She knows that, how
ever much she needs sunshine and
fresh air and thoughts of beauty and
enough domesticity to satisfy her,
there is more needed. Woman needs
a chance to do useful work and, the
joy of counting supremely to some
one tor whom she cares.
In an ideal state one might sum it
up by saying that she needed happy
occupation and home and love. But
ours is not an ideal state. Not every
woman can have an absolutely con
genial occupation. Too many women
have to forego the warmth and com
fort of home. And husband and chil
dren don't seem quite numerous
enough to go round.
So for practical purposes woman
has to be satisfied with a chance, at
useful occupation in which she can
express herself sanely and to which
she can bring a certain vital energy
which will make her gradually come
to feel a real interest in it.
An adaptable woman who wanted
to be a concert singer and who end
ed up by being a reader in a play
broker's office would be able to make
that work interesting and satisfying.
Love is an . absolute necessity.
Without it human life could no more
persist than could cnir world exist
entirely without sunshine. But sun
shine doesn't come just when we want
it nor with the precise degree of
warmth we might ask. Nor is woman
always given "the love of a strong
man." - ft isn't actually - necessary,
either. . . . i
What is necessary is to "matter su
premely to some one." That some
one may he a bedridden old mother,
or .a crippled little sister, or a worn
and weary father, or a young brother
who looks to one worshipfully for
help and guidance. .
Even the woman who has no kkh
nor kin may have splendid loyal
friendships. And the woman who has
that has not an empty life.
None of us can exist without work
to interest us and love to warm and
caress us. If we have that we have
much. If we have more we are in
But what every woman needs, in
its simplest terms, is the chance to
be useful and the privilege of loving
and being loved. '

Pickles are expensive to buy,, but
they can be made easily at home, and
form a very pleasant addition to cold
or hot dishes.
Pickled Beets Wash very careful
ly, taking care not to break the skin,
as all the color will come out if this
happens: Boil for an hour, and let
them stand until perfectly cold.
Scrape and slice them, and pour over
them vinegar in which a few pepper
corns and some cloves have been pre
viously boiled. Cover the jars close
ly, and see that the beets are thor
oughly covered with vinegar..
' Pickled Cauliflowers-Trim the caul
iflower and break it up into small
pieces. Strew these with salt, and
leave them from twelve to twenty
four hours between plates. Drain
them well, pack them with salt, and
cover with cold vinegar previously
boiled up with spice. The cauliflower
can be quickly parboiled in salt and
water before it is put in the jars, if
you find the raw vegetable indi
Pickled Cucumbers Choose small
and perfect cucumbers without any
spots. I Lay them in strong salt and
water until they turn quite yellow,
stirring them twice a day to keep
them from softening. When they are
quite yellow, pour off the water and
cover with grape-vine leaves. Boil
up the poured-off water and pour it
boiling over the cucumbers. Leave
them all In a warm corner near the
fire. When the water is almost cold,
boil it up again and pour it over the
cucumbers again. Repeat this process
until the cucumbers . turn a good
green, keeping them covered with the
leaves, a clean cloth and a reversed
soup plate to keep in the steam. When
they are thoroughly green, drain them
well, pour the foil lowing pickle over
them and tie down with bladders or
For the Pickle To each quart of
white wine vinegar allow a quarter of
an ounce of mace or half a dozen
cloves, half an ounce of sliced ginger,
half an ounce of black pepper and half
a handful of salt; boil this all together

. Planked flounders, seasoned simply
with salt and pepper and served with
mashed potatoes, are one of the best
dishes the hostess can offer for Fri
day's fish course.
Cleanse the fish and two hours be
fore they are wanted rub them inside
and out with salt to render them firm;
wash and wipe them dry; sprinkle
with salt and pepper with a little but
ter rubbed over. Lay the fish on an
oak plank, then set in oven for twenty-five,
to thirty minutes, being care
ful to baste the fish frequently with
melted butter. Garnish with hot
mashed potatoes, pressed through a
Jiastry bag and tube, also slices of
emon and sprigs of parsley. Serve
hot with cream sauce.
Sauce: Put three tablespoonfuls of
butter into a saucepan with one table
spoonful of flour, and keep stirring
until the butter is melted; add salt
and pepper to taste and half a cup
of cream flavor with lemon or onion

By WOODS HUTCHINSON, M. D.
When Hamlet remarked in the
ghost scene "There are more things
in heaven and earth, Horatio, than
are dreamt of in your philosophy," he
scarcely had hotel kitchens and ham
burger steak in mind. Nor, when
Sir Lucius Fauntleroy Brown of the
Pure Thought bureau of the health
department, pricked forth on his joy
ous quest of inspection among the
hotels and restaurants in New York,
could he have dreamed of the
ghosts of the mightyand too ldng
ucu wmcn would rise to contront
him from soup and goulashes and
Nothing could have been more in-
nocent, more sweetly reasonable,
more praiseworthy, than his scheme I
Simply to visit with his inspectors all
the public eating places in two of the
main hotel and restaurant districts
of the city, bless the good and con
demn the bad, grading them on a
scale of purity by an ingenious color
scheme, ranging from white for pur
ity down to black for dirtiness; then
to present each proprietor with a
Sunday school card or blue ribon of
a color corresponding to his rank in
the abyss, which he could pin on him
self or exhibit above his cash regis'
The restaurants were simnlv
charmed to hear of his coming visit.
Purity was their hobby, their pet
weakness, and their middle name was
Spotless. They welcomed the chance
of winning an official decoration,
which they could proudly display to
their patrons, as official proof that
their establishments were as im
maculate and hygienic at the back
as their white enamel and spotless
table linen and waiters' duck jack
ets were in front.
But, in the languase of the dav.
"Oh, what a difference in the morn
ing I" The inspectors have come and
gone, hundreds of restaurants and
eating houses have been gladdened by
the light of their presence, but that
is about all the gladness they got out
of it Not a sign of gay color, not a
scrap of bunting, not a bright pla
card" of any sort lightens and il
luminates their scheme of interior
Their modesty seemed to be some
thing positively abnormal, until the
records were published and an alarm
ed and astonished public discovered,
with many internal qualms and per
turbations, that out "of the first 265
restaurants inspected, 256 were pre
sented with the Order of the Wooden
Spoon, the booby orne in the lineo
of piracy, "tipped the Black Spot"
eight were entitled to sport the red
ribbon of "fair," and one, only one,
was granted the white badge of
purity good. Really, in future,
the inspectorss ought to carry a lan
tern after the classic manner of
Diogenes, hunting for an honest man.
But there is really little to be sur
prised at in these findings, except
the naive and Diisstul commence ot
the restaurant men that their ways -of
doing things would stand the acid
test of actual expert sanitary inspec
tion. In some cases it was merely
a case where ignorance was bliss, for
the managers or proprietors actually
did not know what was going on in
every hole and corner of the back
part of their establishments.
But in most cases it was the re
sult of that devil's code, known as '
"customs of the trade," dirty, care
less, insanitary little ways of doing
things, which save time, or trouble
or expense, and which can't be much
out of the way because everybody
As anyone who has had official ex
perience or been interested in food '
economics knows, scarcely a single
sanitary inspection has been made of
the actual conditions in basements '
and kitchens of hotels, restaurants
and bake shops anywhere, without
finding conditions which could only
be described by the word "abomin
able." And one or more of these
would frequently be found in suc
cessful, prominent, and supposedly
first class establishments.
There is not the slightest need for
the city of New York to resent these
findings as a special aspersion upon
her fair fair fame personally, nor
for lesser cities or country towns to
point the finger of scorn at the
metropolis, for everything described
in the inspectors' report could be
duplicated without the slighest diffi
culty in every hamlet in the land big
enough to have half a dozen public
The New York caterers are at least
entitled to the consolation that, in
the classic language of Dr. Johnson,
"The' invidiousness of their offense
consisteth not in the singularity of it."
Advice to Lovelorn
: By Beatrice Fairfax
Ewp to tha Bl(ht.
D..r Mtfli Fairfax: I have mat a rounv
man, 34. whom 1 love. One night orni
thine mad. me tall him of my love and
he told me then that our feeltnga were mu
tual. The other nlffht he mentioned taking
a ahort trip and aaked me ' to do aome
thlns which I know la not right. Do you
think ho le teetlns my character or do
you think that he deema It proper, aa we
both know of each othar'a lover HBLEN.
Never, under any circumstances, do
anything which your own sense of
right makes you know is improper.
A girl who clings to her own sane
knowledge of what is right and does
not allow herself to be persuaded to
do the slightest thing which seems
evil to her will save herself from suf
fering and regret Also remember
that no man who really loves a girl
will ever ask her to do anything he
would not have his sister do.
The Benefit f the Doubt.
Dear Mlai Fairfaxi I haw ee recelv
tnv attentlone from a young man for three
rear, and dearly love him. I aleo know
my lore la returned. While out walking I
met him with a young lady: he spoke to
me. but acted In a great hurry to get
away. Bo hae called on me since, but aald
no word about what occurred. Do you think
I had better apeak to him about It, or
what would you adrlae me to do?
If you are a fine, broad-minded girl
you will just dismiss this matter from
your mind and believe that the man
you love would explain the situation
to you if it were possible. If you can
do that all will be well. But if you arc
going to suffer from continual doubts ' .
and fears you had better, ask him to
clear up the situation. - -
