After receiving her instructions she
started in with a vim and was rapidly
filling her salesbook with accounts of
many a ribbon sale.
"If this ribbon is mailed out im
mediately, do you think it will reach
this out-of-town customer by morn

Miss Towle's fellow workers are
delighted with the manner in which
she has taken hold of the "job" and
her avidity to learn. It bears out a
reputation Miss Towle has among
her friends for energy and ability.
Miss Towle was expected to make
her debut this winter, as far sister.
Miss Marion, did last year, hut this
individualistic young woman decided
to nostpone her debut and to spend
another winter studying in New York.
As the Indian names scattered

the broad spirit of its model. Its

is a great credit to a tribe unfamiliar

Such imitation is a kind of apology
to the original artists for having
called them barbarians or savages.
Many of the Indian weaving pat
terns are very beautiful as well as
original. The red artists have shown
the depth of their genius in adapting
the mechanism put into their hands
by the whites to their artistic ideas
instead of adapting the ideas to the

Fruit and Vegetable Pickle
By CONSTANCE CLARKE,
in spite of the good quality of all
kinds of manufactured preserves, most
housewives cling to the idea that
home-made preserves are the best.
The following recipe for a delicious
fruit and vegetable pickle is easily
Peel, . core and cut up twelve
medium-sized apples. Remove the
stones from a pound of dates, and
boil the two in a quart oi vinegar
until tender. Then add three cups
of brown sugar, one-half ounce of
ground ginger, two cloves of garlic,
six medium-sized tomatoes, one cup
of seedless raisins, one teaspoonfui

of dried apricots. The apricots should
be soaked and cut into small pieces
before they are added. Put in jars
while hot, and cover when cold.

After Treatment of Infantile Paralysis
BY WOODS HUTCHINSON, M. D.
,There are disadvantages in being
young as well as in being old. One
of the most perplexing and pitiable
things about the after-treatment of
infantile paralysis is just that it is "in
fantile," that its little victims are
young, very young. This means that
they have completed only about a
fourth of their growth and a tenth of
their muscular education, and paraly
sis at this stage means not only loss
of power, but deformity and grave dis
turbance of balance.
In fact, paradoxical as it may sound,
the most serious cause of trouble in
some cases is not that the palsied limb
or paralyzed muscle will not grow, but
that the opposite limb and the other
groups of muscles will keep on grow
ing along with the rest of the body.
For instance, one little leg is para
lyzed, or half paralyzed, so that it can
only move about half as actively and
vigorously as the other; the little one
walks with a limp, and for several
months, even if no improvement oc
curs, get about fairly well. Then sud
denly one day the parents notice that
the limp seems to be getting worse,
although the paralyzed limb is no
wgaker, and when the tape measure
is placed alongside it is discovered
to be half or three-quarters of an inch
shorter than the sound limb.
This, of course, is not because th
weakened limb has shrunk or grown
shorter, but simply that it hasn't
grown at the same rate as the healthy
limb. And, unfortunately, the older
and taller the child grows, the more
marked becomes the relative shorten
ing of the crippled leg. A pitiful il
lustration of the bitter scriptural para
dox, "Unto him that hath shall be
given, but from him that hat not,
shall be taken away even that which
he hath." So that ultimately the poor
little victim has often to add to the
legitimate labor of the half-paralyzed
muscles the weight of a box-soled,
"club-foot" shoe, or even steel stirrup,
or other mechanical apparatus for
lengthening it to match the other
Or if one group of muscles only in
an arm or leg is affected, those that
straighten it or extend it, for instance,
then the undamaged muscles which

What you did was the proper and
courteous thing. There was nothing
undignified in it, and no man with the
instincts of a gentleman could possi
bly have misinterpreted your attitude.
Any man with whom a woman has
continuous business dealings is an
acquaintance and she should always
recognize him when she meets him on
the street This applies to employes
in your office and clerks who wait
upon you over and over again, as well
as to a man you meet through deal
ings in a bank.

Dear Miss Fairfax: It happened that I

Ho haa never asked me to go any other

Thera waa absolutely nothing Improper

torney in public could scarcely rouse Just
criticism from even the most formal minded
people, since even they would recognize the
probability that you were discussing bus

bend the limb will over-pull the
weakened group opposing them and
gradually bend the limb in their direc
tion until it becomes permanently
crooked and drawn up. So that the
problem of combatting the paralysis
is not merely that of keeping the
paralyzed muscles alive and moving,
but also that of preventing the un
paralyzed muscles or fellow limb
from pushing or pulling them over to
one side or outgrowing them.
This is only one illustration of the
many complexities and perplexities of
the after-treatment of poliomyelitis.
Whoever undertakes to treat it must
l:ave clearly in mind a perfect and
accurate picture, first, of the exact
damage done and the point in the
cord involved; second, of the chan
nels through which repair and im
provement may be hoped to come,
and third, of what the natural growth
of the rest of the limb and body
will do to the damaged muscles in the
way of overgrowing thein and dis
turbing them and disturbing the bal
ance by racing ahead. '
FranUy, it is no job for a family
physician or a general practitioner;
it requires an expert knowledge and
training, such as can only be fairly
expected of a specialist in children's
diseases, expert assistants and nurses
to carry out the treatment, which is
largely "by hand." by that best of
all orthopedic appliances and "batter
ies," the skilled human fingers, and
a considerable equipment of ex
pensive apparatus, gymnastic, electric
and therapeutic. The health depart
ment is overwhelmingly right in de
claring that hospital treatment is the
only adequate and most hopeful care
for the at least three to five thou
sand little cripples who will be left
in the wake of this epidemic, and
the admirable movement of Mr.
Hearst to found and equip a special
hospital to take care of these little
human derelicts will be a public serv
ice and a clear-sighted humanity of
the highest timeliness and value.
Especially in view of the fact that at
least nine-tenths of the little victims
are from a class which is utterly
unable to afford the consultations
