PROPERLY, SAFEGUARDS HEALTH
Strength and Vigor Derived From Scientifically Cobkhd Meats
Are Needed for the Battle of Life New Methods
Emancipate Housewife From Drudgery.
Daughter Forced to
Shelter of Almshouse.
By MllS. ANNA A. CARROLL
Wow thany of us hs,vo stopptd to think
Tiow very taw mothers there, are who have
not b6n wonderfully helped by the mod
ern mothod of cooking? And yet If we
weta to aeK theso same mother what In
tho Ut few year has been the most
Important facttn In lightening their labor,
removing the drudgery of tho kitchen and
eystemnlllnir tho household, many would
not realise that It has been tho Rfts
rnnsffc For It Influence has been co
gradual that few of us nro really aware
of Its highly developed slate.
Thefo are few mothers, however,
whether they bo rich or poor, whether
they cook for a largo or small family,
or simply plan tho meals and direct
others to prepare them, who have not
been Imprested by tho widespread agita
tion carried on to procure puro food leg
islation. And yet our purpose Is prac
tically defeated If we do not have thc.ie
foods sclendncally cooked.
This scientific preparation of food can
only be carried on by tho use of that
fuel which at all times can glvo tho right
degree of heat necessary for the proper
conversion of the uncooked miterlal Into
THE CHILD'S NEED OF NUT KIT ION'.
Tho strength and vigor derived from
properly cooked foods aro needed by our
boys nnd girls who go out In the Indus
trial world to begin a battle that will
last tor life. Tho mother should do all
In her power to send her children Into
tho arena of life with good health. This
can only be done by proper nourishment
from their childhood up. The boy or girl
who starts out with a sound body already
has one of tho biggest nsscts for success
Perhaps we would not be fat wrong If
we should say that tho Juvenile Probation
Court would nnd Its problem materially
lessened If the necessity for nutritious
feeding of children was more thoroughly
understood by mothers. That such a
necessity exists 'nas for some time been
recognized by our educational authorities
nnd they hac provided lunches free or at
a nominal cost for the pupils of various
schoolK, and have also banished tho ven
ders of 'tho Boggy doughnuts and cheap
candles whose deleterious effects have
been heightened by the germs gathered
from the diisty streets and from careless
handling1. While there are examples or
Invalids who are splendid characters yot
wo know that weak bodies and disordered
nervous systems will cause lack of cour
age and 'ambition, which In time may re
suit In moral as well as physical degen
eracy, 1V0P.K FOR SOCIOLOGISTS
The workers In sociology would fill a
great need In our' modern civilization If
they could provide the means of Incul
cating this great truth of the import
ance of food values by means of Inten
sive education that could reach mothers,
who through their maternal lovo and In
stinct make so many sacrifices for their
children, yet through their lack of knowl
edge will feed their children In a man
ner that must result In Impaired diges
tion and anemic bodies.
Our business men in the very zenith of
the(r career many times find themselves
Incapacitated by the various forms of
Indigestion and stomach Ills which re
eult from, the former ignorance of a fond
mother who inspired this boy with tha
principles of Integrity and ambition, but
did not realize tho importance of good
'dtgesflvo organs and sound nerves to
carry tmw) out. But think of the trag
edy this condition of breakdown in health
is to the poor man or woman who has
to be on the Job and who cannot af
ford specialists! There is a natural law
of the survival of tho fittest, and -our
mothers must be brought to realize In
will confine ourselves to tha fuel that Is
served to us by the cubic foot. The
scientific Improvements In tho gas range
In late years have been actuated, as, In
fact, has been every modern Improve
ment, by a demand for the most efficient
and labor-saving device that human In
genuity has been able to conceive. Tho
manufacturers of gas ranges havo mntlo
so many Important Improvements that It
will bo possible hero to enumerate only
a few of them. All the burners can bo
lifted out and cleaned, tho old galvanized
and sheet Iron drip and broiling pans
have been replaced by enameled waro
which Is both sightly nnd sanitary,
Burners aro so constructed that there is
n perfect mixture of the air and gas, this
rermlts the turning do,wn of tho burner
to a mere speck of flame under a pot
when It Is needed to keep things hot or
at a simmering point. Top grates nnd
side shelves hnvo been simplified so that
new they aro very easy to clean. An
other Improvement Is tho finish of the
metal which enables tho range to be
easily cleaned. Another remarkable Im
provement has been In the perfecting
of tho oven construction now giving such
perfect results In baking. Then the
splendid types of cabinet ranges give
baking and broiling ovens In convenient
position, enameled door pnnels nnd splash
backs that are an ornament In our model
Three homeless wanderers, n grand
mother, bent nnd gray, and her daugh
ter and granddaughter, found a home to
day. They were sent to Blockley.
Death and desertion brought poverty
on the three generations, nnd hunger
the Interest of posterity the fact that
properly nurtured bodies make their chil
dren better fitted for success In life.
A- MOTHER'S MISTAKE.
Recently a woman who was obliged to
go out to work to support herself and a
bedridden son told me that the doctor
had told her to broil all tha meats he ate,.
but that Jie wouldn't eat any meat unless
"It was fried to a crisp," "When I asked
her why she had not trained him to eat
broiled meats, as they were more whole
some, she said very naively that she had
never thought of putting on airs like that
when they were all well. She thought
broiling was only for sick people or rich
The busy housewife In tho past genera
tion was Justified for views like this.
Broiling requires a clear. Intense heat, and
how many times she had to contend with
damp wood, poor flue drafts, obstructed
chimneys, poor grade of coal, etc., that
made It Impossible to cook properly or to
have meals on time. But today there Is
no good reason for the widespread use
of the frying pan. Ten minutes' heating
of a eas range will give you the Intense
heat necessary to close the pores of the
meat and retain all the Juices. This Is
done by bringing the meat In close con
tact with the open flame In the lower or
broiling oven, while for economy, pota
toes, apples, biscuits, muffins, custards or
other foods can be baked In the upper or
baking oven with the one consumption of
THIS WEEK'S CAMPAIGN
Wo may wonder as to the relation be
tween lack of nutritious body and brain
building food, caused by lack ot scientific
means and methods In their preparation
and the campaign of education that the
gas companies all over the country are
conducting this week. There are few
housewives today who are not familiar
with the economy of operation, the con
venience and cleanliness of a gas range.
But the campaign of education I have
mentioned Is based on a twofold Idea,
First, to make the housewife realize that
while perfect results can be obtained on
B gas range, yet It requires a certain
amount of Intelligent handling, that It re
quires a certain amount of cleaning, that
the parts aro made for a certain purpose.
For instance, the top grates and side
shelves are Intended as supports for the
cooking utensils and are not to be used
oa stepladders. They will not support the
weight otfa human being, so keep your eye
on tha nwerhanger; he doesn't seem to
be AwarHot, this fact. Don't put some
vegetablbrt to boll, leaving the burner
pn full heSfcand then go out on the porch
and indafirsnely discuss "who caused the
warT" and pot expect to find the water
evaporated and the pot and vegetables
burned. On tha'nolnt of economy, burn
ers should not bo lighted until wanted for
i-u.se, then they should bo turned down low
CHfhen contents of vessel como to a boll.
oven Burners may pe turned out a lew
Tsfputes before the food is removed from
EVOLUTION OF GAB RANGE
Th second Important point is the won
derful evolution that the construction of
tha gas ra,atfe has undergone in the last
tn year. The fact that food has been
i, Mftctsslty from the beginning of time
faa demanded, heat in its preparation.

put Its mark on them as they drifted
from shelter to shelter. Tho grand
mother, Mrs. Catherine Becker, 57 years
old, hobbles on a cane; her daughter,
Mrs. Olga Jolelne, 35 years old, walks
wearily from lack of food. Tho only
bright eyes In the family are those of
5-ycar-old Helen Jolelne, but she, too,
could not have endured privation much
The little girl cried as her grandmother
'led the wny from tho hot street into
the 20th nnd Berks streets polico station
shortly after midnight. In a quavering
volco Mrs. Becker asked the police for
help a night's lodging for the three of
them and something to eat In the morn
ing perhaps they would go away In th
morning and could wait till then for
the food. Tramping the streets had been
wearisome, and she leaned ngalnst the
Something In tho woman's face or
maybo It was the little girl's blue, plead
ing eyes was compelling. Tho police
asked for tho trio's story, and a pitiable
tale they got.
Mrs. Jolelne's husband deserted her two
years ago. They were living on 23d street
above Montgomery avenue and were
happy, in a modest way, until them. The
blow was a hard one. and the deserted
wife's mind gave way under the strain.
She was sent to the Philadelphia Hos
pital, weeping for her husband, who did
not return, Six weeks ago she was dis
charged as cured, nnd the little family
was reunited after a fashion. Two weeks
later Mrs. Becker's husband, a Clvll,War
veteran, died, and their solo support,
his pension, stopped, she said. Mrs.
Becker didn't know where to apply for It.
The landlord waited two months for
the rent money, which was scraped up
a few times and then stopped. They were
evicted a week ago. Tramping the
streets, they managed to keep body and
soul together. A llttlo charity they
found, but no work, for who needs a
woman past middle age with a daughter
Dr. William T. Ellis, police surgeon,
examined the trio and found them to be
In actual need of food. After communi
cating with the Philadelphia Hospital It
was found that they could be provided
for. and they were sent there today,
grandmother, daughter nnd granddaughter.
ROOSEVELT AS PRESIDENT
CONSULTED WITH PL ATT
Continued from race One
Presidential nomination In 1900 was the
basis of cross-examination as soon as
court convened. Barnum cross-questioned
the Colonel at length upon the contonts
of a letter read late yesterday. In that
letter Roosevelt told Piatt he dld.not cars
to be Vlco President. He wanted to run
again for Governor, but told Piatt he
would abide by his advice.
"Did you accept Mr. Piatt's advice in
reference to the Vice Presidential nomi
nation?" asked Barnum.
"I did not," said the Colonel.
"Did you consult him upon the matter
as a boss?"
"I did not."
"Your relations with Boss Piatt were
most friendly at that time?" queried Bar
num. "Most friendly," affirmed tho Colonel.
"In your letter you said you thoroughly
enjoyed your term as Governor," said
Barnum. "Did you enjoy your term?"
"Most thoroughly," said the Colonel.
"CONSULTED" ON APPOINTMENTS.
Barnum then read a letter from Piatt
to Roosevelt referring to the New York
Charter Comirlsslon and the Canal In
vestigation Commission. "Did Mr. Piatt
suggest any members for the Charter
Commission?" asked Barnum,
"I think not." said the Colonel slow
ly. "Yes, Mr. Flatt suggested the name

"Did you consult with Mr. Piatt about
thn Canal Commission?"
"What was said?"
"I cannot .remember exactly."
Barnum then read a letter from Sen
ator Piatt, in which "the boss" said ho
had not had time to glvo the matter
of thi Vice Presidency tho consideration
It deserved This was In reply to n
letter from Roosevelt In rcferenco to
the matter. The Senator said ho hoped
soon to get to New York for a con
sultation with the Colonel.
"Did you consult Mr. Piatt about ac
cepting tho Republican nomination Xor
Vice President?" atkod Barnum
T did," said the Colonel.
"Did you value that advice?"
"I cannot answer that yes or no."
The net letter also dealt with tho
Vice Presidency. It was from Roosevelt
to Piatt on February 7.
DIDN'T WANT THE JOB.
"Your very kind note has Just been re
ceived," wrote tho Colonel. "I note that
you expect to be In New York on Satur
day. If so, I shall not try to lunch with
you, but If convenient I will call on you
at tho Fifth Avenue Hotel at 3 p. m.
Will you wlr mo on receipt of this note?"
"P. S I eaw Kerens and told him I

tho Barren Island legislation.
A telegram from Piatt to Roosevelt,
May 5, lOOrt, then was read. It follows:
