Nothing but eocial stagnation may be
expected .during the next six weeks,
but in this time the invisible powers
will be at work arranging all sorts of
surprises, both matrimonial and other
wise, for the autumn days.
That charming moralizer who writes
in the New York Evening Post over the
initial "C," discussing the moral re
sponsibility of entertaining, suggests
that there are two facts which should
be appreciated by the students of home
and its duties and pleasures.
"It is not a true home out of which
no influence goes to cheer and gladden
the world, and it is not an honorable
home which provides anything that can
hurt the bodies or souls of its guests, or
which fails to make its hospitality
service of wholesome joy to mind as
well as body."
Then, referring to the practice of pro
viding expensive souvenirs for our
guests, she continues: "The making
our entertainment a centre in some ma
terial advantage to the guests lowers
the tone of social life. Especially is
here a grave and much neglected duty
allied to what we do in this way for
children and young people. A child
comes from many, nay most parties
laden as heavily as were the Hebrews in
leaving Egypt of old. His first words
are no longer the formula of the old
days, 'Oh, we did have such fun!' but
running to his mother he cries, 'Just
see what I've got'!"
Much has been said for and against
the value of college education for wom
en, but only in recent years has the
college graduate been a sufficiently
numerous factor in married life and the
home to enable us to judgo of her suc
cess or failure.
At a small gathering of women were
four college graduates, while three times
their number were women of small edu
cation, but famous for skill in cookery
and household management. The hoe
tees an enthusiast in her advocacy of
the application of scientific principles
submitted a list of questions, of which
the following are samples, to her guests:
"Why does cream rise to the top of
"Why do we scald preserves when
they are sour?"
"Why is meat for soup put into cold
"How do you know when bread is
"Why do we not fry in water!"
The answers conclusively demonstrat
ed that the average housekeeper is not
given to thinking about the ways and
wherefores of her household-tasks. The
questions were most intelligently ans
wered by the four college women,
though they left unanswered the in
quiry about frying in water.
A writer in a domestic magazine,
commenting on these instances, declares
they indicate that women have been
performing a round of duties in which
their higher intelligence has had no
part, and asks:
"What would we think of a man in
business who -was so ignorant of the
very elements of. his profession? Cer
tainly home-making it a profession to
which all the resources of our higher
intelligence should contribute, for with
out the home as a rallying point, as a
nation we would be nothing.
The woman graduate has a sphere of
usefulness in the home deeper and
broader than that visible to the average
eye, for home duties need to be elevated
to those of a vocation.
A crusade is needed to give the aver
age woman a conception of the scien
tific principles underlying her round of
home duties, and a sense of the import
ance of them. In accomplishing this,
the graduate hae not far to look for a
The resorts in the east never were bo
gay and brilliant as now. Bar Harbor,
Southampton, Narragansett and New
port are undoubtedly the most fashion
able. The travelers across the water
are returning, and at Newport only a
few of the large places are still unoc
cupied. Bayshore's latest fad is the morning
dance. With cool breezes and a good
orchestra the young people cannot re
sist the temptation to take a turn
around the ballroom at the Prospect
house. Attired in their bicycle cos
tumes or golf suite, they glide around
the ballroom for half an hour before go
