Society Notes' Personal Gossip -:- Entertainments Club Doings
Hold Round Bobin Session Over
.Where They Would Prefer
to Be. ,
If you could be anywhere you
wanted to be, not considering who
yon would be with, for an hour and
a half, where would you choose to
spend the time? The, startling ques
; tion was asked at an Omaha dinner
party the other day. Round the tabic
went the question, and racking their
brains the diners answered:
One chose to be on the Mediter
ranean, near Pompeii. Another want
ed to spend the nine in tne urana
Canyon of the Arizona, Mrs. George
Frinz took London, there to stand
on' Bond street and gaze at the pars
ing throng. Miss, Lida Wilton averred
that if she were to be thus exiled for
an hour and a half, she would choose
to spend it on the old Maine coast.
It's terribly! hard to think where you
should like to spend an hour and a
Half, without taking any thought of
who would be with you.
' Another question which you might
find hard to answer is this: If you
were not what you are, who or what
should yon prefer to be? .
I propounded that question to Mrs.
Harold Pritchett, the popular young
society matron, the other morning.
I think she is perfectly content to re
main just who and what she is, for
she told be very cheerfully that the
was, and Father Neptune and her
baby were having a little session just
then which prevented any thought of
another state or condition.
A certain fascinating young woman
was cautious when I founded her
about her air castles in Spain. 1 She
admitted (hat she had a fairly good
imagination which sometimes carried
her far out into the realm of fancy,
but do you think she told me where?
Well, you have another guess com

Being Sorry
for Yourself
Sympathy Is a very splendid thing
when you bestow it on others.. But,
it is dangerous and weakening when
you administer it to yourself in large
Many' of us have a very good time
with our sorrows, and miseries.. We
hug them to ourselves and actually
enjov them. ,
Wfco doesn't remember the time
when, as a child, punishment which
seemed uniust was meted nut enrl
he lay sobbing on his bed planning.
me own iunerai ana tne weeping
and wailing that would go on when
it was too late. Oh, the luxury of
that misery I '
Grown older and more vnlnM th
child flings out at some one who
nurts mm. "Xou 11 be sorry when
I'm not here any more" planning
the while to run away from persecu
tion and being so sorry for the poor
little abused self he visions.
Grown to manhood, that child is
probably too busy to be sorry for
himself very often. ; But grown to
womanhood, his twin sister indulges
in the. doubtful pleasures of self
pity far too frequently.
It is against the morbid joys " of
self-pity that I want to warn
I read a very lovely little- verse
not long ago. Its musical expression
charmed me. Here it is, read it over
anrl nntire hoai it lilraanrl then
read it again and see what a perfect
example it is of the thing I criti
cise. - ; (
"Whaa ! em deed and over tne brlsht
Bhakea out her nln-drenehed hair,
Though you ahould lean nbove me broken
hearted, '
I ahall not car. .
"f ahall have peace, nafaafy trees are
peaceful ,
Whan rain bende down the beufh,
And I ahall be mora . silent and ; oold
hearted Than you are now,"
An exquisite bit of verse that and
an exquisite illustration of what a
good time we have being sorry tor
What a useless performance self
pity is) If one could talk to. the lady
in cne iync, now one wouia ukc to
say: "My dear madam, why break
vour heart about this cold and cruel
person who has not the inclination to
cnerisn you wnen you are living ana
whose notice you only hope to get
when he mourns your aeatn. iou
can't have any fun out of that notice;
so why not forego, it and proceed now
tn live anA h nanrtv nnrl Haefill?"
It s always like that. Being sorry
for yourself leads you to sit help
lessly by, visioning how the people
who have aousea you win grieve
some day over their failure to ap
preciate you., , .
Being sorry for yourself is a very
expensive luxiiry. -You indulge in it
and expend therein everything which
might lead you to action ana to a
forcefur course in the world where
neither you nor any one else would
have causi to pity you.
Ddn't ever sit still and indulge
in an orgy of weeping over your
misfortune. Instead get up and throw
them off. Refuse to be miserable. Be
ashamed to be miserable. You can the
very minute ypu stop being sorry
for yourself and are disgusted with
yourself for -itting still and feeling
persecuted. ' , ' . . '

Problem of Feeding an Army
One reason, why the feeding of an
army has so many jerks and hitches
in it is that the task isn't appreciated
at its futl dignity and importance.
Professional men, whether military or
medical, rarfaer turn up- their noses
at it, nd work on commissariat
boards or commissions, though ne
cessary, excites little enthusiasm.
Strange as it may seem, in view of
its necessity and basal importance,
feeding an army is really quite a com
paratively recent -branch or depar
ture in the game of war.
Up to only a few centuries ago
armies were not supplied with rations
at all, but each soldier was expected
to Supply his own food, either bring
ing it from home or "rustling" it
from the country fought over. . War
was a simple game of loot, either of
territory or of goods and valuables,
and the soldier merely took his share
and turned over what he couldn't
swallow, or pocket, or secrete, to his
superior officers, and in consequence
received neither pay nor rations, . .
When armies got too big to live off
even the richest countries, rough sys
tems of commissariat and supply
gradually grew up, and like a good
many othej new and haphazard
growths, unfortunately, from the bot
tom, and army contractor and sutler
became synonyms for robber and
plunderer. Shameful to say, officers,
even generals and leaders, took a
hand in the gameof graft it . was an
"extra" anyhow, the rascals in the
ranks really could feed themselves
if they would half try. .'
Even as recently as Queen Anne's
time, the great Duke of Marlborough
was said to have made fortunes
through his rakeoff's from army con
tractors on the' supplies furnished to
his soldiers. And it was only -within
the last century or two that the vital
problem of food and supplies was put
in the hands of intelligent and hon
orable officers and regarded seriously
as a part of their military duties. Even
yet it is the Cinderella of all the
army services, sitting in the .ashes
between the1 mesa-stove and the gar
bage pit. - -,, -
The medical care of an army had
exactly "the same experience, and for
'. Stuffed Tomatoes.
These are a form of salad. Select
firm tomatoes of uniform size. Cut off
the tops, scoop out the pulp and chop
it with a little onion, celery and hard
boiled egg. - Moisten with mayonnaise
and refill the skins. Turn over more
of the mayonnaise.
Do You Know That-
The hand that carries food' to
the mouth can also carry disease'
germs? -
Health first is the highest form
of safety first?
Tuberculosis and poverty go
hand in hand?
The United States public, health
service will send a booklet on flies
and disease, .gratis to all appli
cants? '
The breast-fed baby has the bast
chance? . - '
Physical fitness is preparedness
against disease? , ) , j
Pneumonia is a communicable
disease? '
Cockroaches may carry disease?
refused to recognize the army doctor
as a gentleman, or let him mess at
their table.- In fact, he ranked as a
"non-com," and messed with stewards
and the regimental farrier, or 'Vet."
Even to this day the line officers
affect to look down upon the medical
officer and regard his rank as an up
start imitation of their own. ,
Immense enthusiasm and industry
and intelligent, study are devoted by
army officers to questions of guns and
side arms and ammunition and equip
ment and uniform and, of late years,
even to shoes and underwear, but
problems of the ration and of the
commissariat department excite only
a languid and perfunctory interest in
comparison. Individual officers not
infrequently devote a good deal of
time and thoughtful attention to the
proper feeding of their men, both in
garrison and in the Aeld, but thiy are
the exception rather than the rule..
t ortunately, most of the old abuses
and scandals have been wiped out.
Tfie army ration is nutritious, whole
some, liberal to- a fault, and fairly
well-balanced, and an adequate num
ber of tons of the raw materials for
three square meals a day are usually
delivered and dumped somewhere
within foraging distance of a regi
ment With fair regularity. But the
thing lacks kick and elasticity and
unified control; there is apt to be
food, but nothing to cook it with,
meat without potatoes; bread without
butter; coffee without milk or sugar,
and when a ration has once been
fixed and agreed upon by a board no
power on earth can modify . it 'or
change it in the slightest degree, or
adapt it to even the most radically
different of circumstances. . i v . , .
' For instance, there is no modified
ration for use in hot weather "or upon '
tropical service; there is practically
one iron-clad standard, unchangeable
ration for all sorts and conditions of
activity of men, at home in barracks,
on the march, in troop trains or on
transports, or in the field, except such
as come from difficulties of transpor
tation. The same number of pounds
and ounces of standard foods per man
are issued, and what he can t eat,
he can either trade for something
more suitable, or waste it. : ,
No special ration, for Instance, is .
even provided for soldiers sick in the;
hospital lhe doctor in cnarge
simply draws his four! .pounds - of
standard working food per day for
each patient and then sells or . ex-ehins-ea
it for milk; fruit, ice and such.
other invalid foods as they, need and
can really digest. . ' i ' ; " -What
ought to be done is, that the
whole problem of food supply and
cooking and serving should be ele
vated to the -rank of a special de
partment or division under the con
trol ot a ooaro or commission com
posed of doctors and food experts
and line officers and public-spirited
business men, who would volunteer
for' the service without pay, The
movement in this direction, which was
initiated and is being promoted by the
Merchants' Association of New York,
and which has already won the ap
proval of army authorities and the
consent of the War department, is
emphatically a step in the right direc
tunfand a public service ot, immense
value and importance.
