A "CO-ED" PARADISE IDF'.li KKliATIOXS'IlP PrtTWKKN TWO SEXES PI WISCONSIN. Ttio M.ile rmlprsr.rtrnti Aro S: Deferential ti Tl-.eli Fcmiulm' 1 Comriu!"s as t j Cr.'.l Tlio::i "U'oi.i. ' rn .Strilir.ts." I V l:coi'-In is the panullsi- Jf the co-ed n fact indicated, among other things, li this deferential habit of j c:'.lllni? her, not co-ed, but woman ' stadent. Days and days I spent try- j ins to track down the co-edncational problem, mill I secr.icd, even to my- , P"lf. to H tl.o victim of an evil mind. -There li no co-e-dticatlon prob- b'in at V-.'Is' onsln. Meinbeis of ho j ft.cnlty, mil anions them recent ar-i ilvrls fro .1 Kastorn universities, do-' ( lared this In so many words. To the undcrginriuntps and I lived and i took most of r.iy meals at different I fraternity !o"ob the only problem ! with rojvrJ to the woman student I seemed tn be how to get nearer or i nrxt. Tor tl:ore Is only one woman to half a doxe.i men, and the most aM-rovod i si of an Idle hour appears to be what is called "fussinB." TUie unrestvaine 1 social inter course natural to the West, has full swin q;, and the result is, as always In a self-respecting community, a state of Innocence which to any one from a highly chaperoned commun ity, seems little short of Arcadian, About a hundred of the young wom en room and dine In Chadbourno Hall. Another hundred live In so rority houses. The rest Uvo In their own homes or board in student lodg ing houses some of them in houses partly occupied by men students. I'ntll the present year there had been no dean of women. The new dean Is trying, and with success, to prevent men and women students from living In the samo houses. The matter of cbaporons is more difficult. Each of the sororities has a matron, but sho is largely a fig urehead. She has not oven a posi tion on tho house committee, so that, though she has responsibilities to the university, she has little or no au thority over the students. Buggy riding flourishes. One of the undergraduates admitted to me that it was not unusual for parties of two and three couples to drive out to tho several hotels on Lake Mendota for dinner. "I suppose,'" he added, "that that will seem to you horribly crude." On the con trary, It seemed like the Golden Age or like my own boyhood in tho Middle West. I auked if a slnglo couple ever wont on such an expe dition. Ho shook his head. The girl's own dignity. If not tho tradi tions of the university, would forbid this. When I put tho sumo question to another undergraduate, ho smiled and said that occasionally a couple would go forth to (Mne in single blcssed:f;;s. Yet 1 am convinced that no serious harm Is done. Were engagements common? Uy no mums. Sometimes gossiping souls would allege that a couple were enrasel or, If not, they ought to be. Hut no engagements were announced, except In most crises, as the immediate prelude to student marriages, which arc rare. And this was wise, one informant told me, for then if the young woman went home and married a mnn In her native town no one could prove that she was unduly experienced, or that tho undergraduate had been jilted. And this leads to tho only thins approaching a co-educatlonal prob lem. Though men and women are of much the same age, there is a rad ical difference in their situation in life. The women are in a position to be married but the men are not In a position to be married, but the men are not In a position to marry them, as regards either age or worldly goods. Tho women, arriving from farm, village or city, regard their life in tho university as a social coming out their first and perhaps only chance for a real good time. Arrnngenient of Kitchen Utensils. For tho housewife with a small kitchen where spoons, knives and forks must be kept in one compart ment, try having the top drawer of the kitchen cabinet divided Into three sections, the partitions extend ing from tho front to the back of tho drawer. Use one section for knives and forks, a second for spoons of all kinds and a third for miscel laneous utensils, as egg beaters, skimmers, can oponers and pancake turners. By this plan one can seo at a glance, the article desired. The drawer will always present an ordor ly appearance, and will hold a great er number of utensils than if they were laid in in a "haphazard" man ner. Home Adornment In Schools. The "house beautiful" advocates are trying to get into tho publio schools to talk once a week on the ways to decorate a homo with small outlay. It seems a fine propaganda, and eminently practical women look with favor on it. A Caution. Never awaken a child suddenly and never carry a baby immediately Into a glaring light when ho wakes up; the sudden impression of light la bad for the eyes. - NATURAL SODA FOUNTAIN. I One of the Most Interesting Gushing Wells in tho World. One of the most interesting and novel gushing wells In the world, and perhaps without a rival in either respect, Is a geyser of soda water that lecently cane up at ,vondling, Just across, tho Mendocino County border from Sonoma, cal. This well produces sod water genuine soda water and of a qual ity that would wt rrant bottling for tho general trade, In such quantities as were never struck before. There Is so much of this water that It in turned Into a huge long Hume, and used to float great logs from the Ion st to the lumber mills. an artosan well borer was recent ly employed to secure an adequate water supply for u large sawmill In that icglon. lie drilled t a uuj.it li of -0U teet, tip) lower 110 feet bun,; through solid granite. Then a slight trace of water was found. The arte sian man then . aced fifty-four sticks Ol dynamite at the .jottom of tho v ll, and exploded them. Instantly water gushed up, rising 20 feet above the surface of the ground, pouring forth in enormous volume. That wr.s dajs ago, and since then thore has been no indication of a cessation of this vast "natural soda fountain," UulUlcd Hotter Tnan Ho Knew. "There is a woman up iu the front of the car who hasn't paid her faro," said the conductor to the man in the rear seat, "hut I can't place hor." "Perhaps I can glvo you a point er," said the helpful man. "Pick out tho woman who lingers her hat pins all tho time. That is the latest: wrinkle of tho female street car ; pirate. Heading her neighbor's pa- , per and gazing into futurity are out 1 of date. Everybody has got on to those tricks. Hut tho woman that beats hor way has to do something to hide her guilt, so she fiddles with her hatpins." "Maybe you are right," said tho conductor. "Anyhow, I'll try." After a littlo he reported to the nolpful man. "That worked all right," ho said. "She owned up. Sho said you would pay for her." "Me?" exclaimed the helpful man. "What have 1 got to do with it?" "Everything, apparently," said the conductor. "She happened to look back here when I spoke to her. Sho said she knew you, and that it would be all right. There sho is now, standing up and i.odding at you. Know or?" "Yes," said the man weakly, "she's my wife." Joiii-iiulisni and Pulchritude. A photographer in an Iowa town was called upon not long ago to make some pictures of an old lady of seventy years or so, but of surpris ing agility and quickness of per ception. The picture man was, therefore, somewhat surprised to find that no words of address eoulu Induce the old lady to t,puuk until after tho operation was completed. Then she put her lingers into her mouth, whence she withdrew several wads of paper. "You wouldn't have me photo graphed with my cheeks falling In, would you?" she asked the photo grapher. "I just stuffed two pages of tho Des Moines Hegister In my mouth to fill out." Ail Anti-Ant Huilding. Ueinforced concrete is the ma terial which will bo used almost ex cessively in tho construction of the new Government buildings to -e erected by the united States at San Juan, Porto Rico, for use as a pjst olhce, court house and custom house. Wood is to be practically excluded from tho structure; the only place about the building where wood will bfc employed will be iu the window sashes on one side of the edifice. Tho interior doors will bo of rattan. The reason why wood is being avoided by the government In this case is be cause there is a small ant lndigenus to the island of Porto Rico which eats its way up through wooden chairs, doors and desk3 and makes them spongy on the inside. Effects of Overeating. "Don't eat too much," says "What-to-Eat." Overeating is responsible for many of the ills that afflict hu manity. It brings on various dis eases, and it predisposes to many kinds of Infections. The same stric ture may be applied to overdrink ing. If one has been so foolish as to eat or drink too much, however, the best thing is to remain In the open a.r till the ejects are overcome. Nothing is so good for an overloaded stomach and a heavy head as great drafts of fresh air. Every lover of "Pickwick" remembers how the jol ly Pickwicklans had to take twenty mile tramps to walk off the big din ners they ate at old Mr. Wardlca place In tho country. Centre of Glove Industry. The center of tho glove industry la at Grenoble in the south of France. The kids thore are tondod with the greatest care, the Idea being to pro duce 'skins that are strong and plia ble and at tho same time free from blemishes. The finest quality of kid is obtained from animals that aro killed before t'-ey begin to eat grass at all, because from tnat time the sklna have a tendency to become hard and coarse. A Sky Trust.

Mother Ma ry linker G. Eddy's home at Chestnut Hill was besieged again by persons who wanted to learn what sho hud to say about the charges made by Mrs. Delia Gilbert of New York, a dis gruntled member of the Christian Sci ence cult. Hint she was either dead or a nieiitnl wreck. Mrs. Kddy consented that a number of newspaper men should be admitted to her presence as she went out for her daily drive. They were not al lowed to tall; to her. They saw that she was much more feeble than a year imo, but that she was able to walk without assistance and that her com mands (o her assistants were clear and c ohereiil. The following ulllclal statenientv.-is Issued by Mr-', l'ddy's advisers In her name and over her Miniature: "I have the pleasure to report to one nnd all of my beloved friends and ifc A ' ft MRS. MARY BAKER G. EDDY. ; followers that I exist In the llesii and j am seen dally by the members of my household nnd by those with whom I have appointments. "Above all this fustian of either do nylng or asserting the personality and presence of Mary Raker Eddy stands the eternal fact of Christian Science nnd the honest history of Its discover er and founder. It Is self evident that the discoverer of an eternal truth can not be n temporal fraud. "The cause of Christian Science Is prospering throughout the world and stands forever as an eternal and de monstrable science, nnd I do not re srard this attack upon me ns a trial, for when these things cease to bless they will cease to occur. And we know that all thin;; work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called accordlinr to his purpose. What shall we say. then, to these things' If God be for us. who can he against us':" The board of directors of the mother church of Christian Science elected William I'. McKenzle as president. Stephen A. Chase of Kail River tresis urer and John V. Dlltmore of Wv York fieri, the hitter sueceedlnu' Wil liam H. Johnson, who resigned. The following letter was received, from Mrs. Mary Raker G. Eddy, ad dressed to the board of dlrei tors: "I thank you for your kind Invitation to be present at the annual meet In:: of the mother church. I will atleml the nieellng. but not In propria persona. Watch and pray that (Soil directs your meetings and your lives, and you: leader will then be sure that they an blessed In their results." CLARKSON TO SERVE TERM. President's Decision About Surveyor ship of Port of New York. Washington, June S. James S. Clark son, surveyor of tho port of New York, will lie allowed to serve out Ills pres ent term, which has about a year to run. but will not be reappointed. The Republican state machine has already suggested George W. Aid ridge's name to President Taft as a lit successor to General Clarkson, but the president declined to accede to the re quest. The prediction Is made that Mr. Taft will seek for Clarkson's successor a man more of the type of Wllllau: Williams, recently named commission er of IminlKratlon at Ellis Island. Mr. Clarkson was appointed survey or on April 18. 1IMI2. Senator Allison wns behind him. It was supposed that President Roosevelt had appointed Clarkson to the New York post partly to plcnse the Iowa senator nnd partly because he liked Clarkson personally. 8tago Manager Tries Suicide. Montgomery, N. Y., June 8. Clement Hopkins, formerly stage manager for Rlanche Walsh and a member of the t.n nibs' club of New York, attempted 3uicide at his country home hero while temporarily deranged. Ho stabbed himself In the breast, nnd the wound will probably prove fatal. Absent Minded Alderman. A Lynn (Mass.) Alderman at a recent Aldormpnlc meeting inquired what bad become of an order be had Introduced some time before calling for an arc light on Willow street. Tho City Clork, after digging into his files, informed him that the order had come before the board nearly a month p.'evlous and hat he had voted against it. The Imitative Ally.

International Bible Lesson for June 13, '09 (Heb. xx: 1-40)- Every nnii'-n has its hall of fame. On h walls of its il bulla the nrur.cs of tho liuinort tls are Inscribed, like the Panthe on, built by Louis I. of Bavaiia, which was conse crated to all Ger mans who have become renown ed In war, states manship, liter ature, science, or art. Roll of the Departed, And it is significant that these great men nre all dead men. The world has a universal habit of finding out that It has been entertaining angels unawares. Blessings brighten ns they take their (light. Tho Washington monument erected among the sky scrapers of New York would not at tract so much attention as it does standing out solitary and alone on the banks of the Potomac. Wo are too near the men of the present to proper ly estimate their proportions. Somo of them are much bigger than they appear, and some of them will shrink mightily when we get the proper per spective. It is quite likely that the neighbors of Abraham thought him a deluded, addle-brained visionary when he gave up his pleasant home in Ur of the Chaldces, and started out on a wild goose errand to a land that he expected to recelvo for an Inherit ance, and we know that even Moses, the greatest statesman of the ages was criticised by his brother and sis ter, and that the common rabble of the street took up stones to pelt him. We have frowns,' and criticism, and abuse and mud for our living leaders, but fragrant flowers for their coffins, and soaring monuments for their graves. Have to Die to Be Appreciated. People have to die to be appreciat ed. Joan of Arc was burned at the stake as a vile heretic, but sho has recently been beatified by the Pope. The flames did not harm her great spirit, and tho beatification will not add any lustro to her glory. The inci dent only servos to point this moral and adorn this tale. T'tore were thousands of men who abused Abra ham Lincoln. They never could speak of him without a sneer. Ho was a "rallsplitter," a black republican, an uncouth interloper. Ho was abused by tho newspapers, caricatured on the platform, denounced by the politi cians. Tho waves of assault rolled up to his feet from tho south, and dashed over his head from tho north, and they never ceased to roll over him till his gentle heart broke in death. But 40 years after his assassination Columbia carves ills name in her tem ple of fame side by side with Wash ington, and the whole country, yea, the wholo civilized world uncovers and bends tho knee at the grave of Abraham Lincoln. A Matchless Pantheon. Tho Hebrew people have their hall af fame. It is found in tho eleventh chapter of the book of Hebrews, writ ten very likely by Apollos, a lover of his race. He goes into that matchless Pantheon, and beginning with Abel, the first martyr, he writes upon tho pages of an imperishable book the names of the heroes of faith for 4,000 years. The nations visit that sacred edifice and read tho deathless names, Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Barak, Samson, lepthae, David, Samuel, the Prophets, a cloud of witnesses, an honor roll whom the proudest nations of earth might covet. The Living Dead. And yet these heroes aro not dead. I They never began to have the influ . ence in the world that they have at j this very moment. Their contempora ' rles never were affected by them as I the whole world is to-day. When I Abraham set out from Mesopotamia I he took none of his neighbors with I him. When Enoch walked with God, he went alone, in life and in transla- tlon. When Noah sailed over the ! judgment flood he could induce no one I else to embark with him, save his own i family. They had little success, as ' men count success with those who 1 were coeval with them. But to-day I wherever the Bible Is read Enoch is walking with God, Abraham Is inherit Ins the promises, tho father of a multitude like tho sands of the sea, and Moses Is breaking the bonds of the oppressor and shouting In the ear of every taskmaster, "Let my people go" No great man evor really dies. When Jesus was In the flesh ho was limited to the narrow confines of Palestine. It was only fit bla depart ure that ho could really say, Oo ye iuto all tho world, and Jo, I am with you always. Tho Christ is the most omnipresent personality In the world to-day. But tho camo thing Is true In a lesser degreo tn respect to every groat soul of man. Thus the pres ent Is peopled with the shadowy forms of tho past It ia impossible to en tomb the immortals. - - "I , 4 do mm mi ALCOHOL 3 PP.U ni-vn ANSgelauleltopamionferAs. die S loraachs nMBow is of Promotes Dteestiontofurj ncss and I(ust.Contalns tvithcr Opiuiu.Morphuic nor Mineral.
