First Woman In China
to Practice Medicins.
DM. TAMEI KIN.
Is it possible for an eastern woman
to enjoy western education and train
ing and remain characteristically ori
ental? This is a question frequently
asked by Europeans interested in the
education and progress of eastern wo
men. To seo Dr. Yainel Kin, China's first
woman doctor, and, better still, to
hear ber speak in perfect English of
her hopes for the further progress of
Chinese women, is to answer the ques
tion in the affirmative. Dr. Yampi Kin
stands for the well balanced oriental
woman, familiar with the science,
learning and methods of the wast, but
losing none of her own nationality.
Sue is typically Chinese in appear
ance. There are the pale complexion,
the dark hair, the small dark eyes,
twinkling with fun. Small in stature,
but alert and active in body and mind,
Dr. Kin wisely retains her Chinese
It is more than twenty years since
Dr. Yamei Kin took her degree at the
Women's Medical college. New York,
now merged into Cornell university.
The years spent in the west have
taught her much besides a wondorful
command of tlio English language and
a knowledge of medicine and surgery.
She docs not approve of al she has
heard and soon, but she recognizes
that modern science is the greatest
gift of the west to the east today. In"
method there must be adaptation rather
She is now intrusted by the Chinese
government with the organization of
a medical department for women in
northern China, a huge task which
calls forth her splendid abilities. A
start has been made at Tientsin. A
hospital, dispensary and medical school
are in existence. How they came in
to being is characteristically Chinese.
Land, on which were some very an
cient buildings, was allotted , to Dr.
Kin for her new organization, with an
assured revenue. That was the gov--crnment's
part; sho waB to do all the
rest. "You must make your own
plans and carry your scheme to suc
cess." This meant that sho had to be her
own architect and engineer and carry
out the work with the aid of a few
ordinary workmen. There were the
water supply to bo planned and sani
tary work to bo done, as well as de
molishing some of the old buildings,
replacing them with new ones and
adapting others to her purpose.
The transformation was worked.
The architect and engineer are now
sunk In the doctor and director. Dr.
Kin's aim is to make sure progress and
lift the people slop by step to better
sanitation and hygiene. In her estab
lishment she maintains Chinese cus
toms so far as possible and Introduces
only such western methods of sanita
tion as are Indispensable. DTer stu
dents enter for a two or three years'
course; their method of life is Chinese,
also their food, which Dr. Kin shares
with them In order that sho may be
the first to complain if anything should
Nothing Like Personality.
Nothing like personality, If you
know how to assert it. Clerks have
not forgotten the dear lady who wrote
to her husband: "I am Just crazy ovor
tho Thousand islands. How long can
I stay?" It was personality, pure and
simple, that won for her tho enthusi
astic response, "So glad you arc hav
ing a nice time! Don't hurry. Stay a
week on each island."
Mora gossip this, but with his own
ears tho clerk onco heard a farmer's
wife pay a most generous and inspir
ing tribute to personality. Concluding
a tirade in disfavor of an nunt, sho
blurted: "I know what I'll do to her.

Orioin of High 'Heeled Shoes.
Mim. Tompadour was a very small
-woman, but to mako herself look tall
she built her hair up high and wore tho
first pair of high heeled shoos ever
made. The high heels that were In
vented for her hove been accused of
many crimes to tho foot, but physicians
now seem agreed that "broken arches"
may bo produced by any sudden shock,
such as Jumping from a car. Children
who Jump the rope a great deal some
times have this disease of the foot.

A HOLE AS EVIDENCE.

A hole in the ground caused by the
explosion of n Iwmb will figure In the
trial of the McNamara brothers for
the alleged dynamiting of thp Los An

and boxed for preservation.
On the morning of the destruction of
tho Times building, Oct. 1, 1910, two
unexpkxJod liombs were found at the
residences of General Otis, owner of
tho Times, and F. J. .oehandelaar,

when he heard a clock ticking nnd

a few days ago tho attorneys for the

Fresh rlpt fruit without sugar is
very wholesome, especially if eaten In

as to make it undesirable for some

To make an attractive!- screen for the
nursery get a light bamboo screen (an
old one will do) and remove the sllko
llue with which these are usually
covered. Substitute dark red or green
cambric and cover it with colored pic
tures, pasted on so that each panel Is
given over to one kind, such as flow
ers, animals, children, etc. Tho screen
will prove its value in the early morn
ing hours when tho baby will He and
look at the pictures instead of start

A pretty crib cover may be made
from a yard each of whlto and pale
blue or pink flannel. On tho colored
flannel -embroider a flower and bow

One Mother's Experience.
A wise young mother who seems to
have excellent control over her little
ones let fall a few words of wisdom
at a "mothers' club" recently.
"When my babies are tired at night
and it's time for them to go to bed,"
she said when another mother asked
her bow she succeeded so well In get
ting her children to bed without a
row, "I never say 'Get ready for bed
at once and put away your playthings
immediately,' for that will call forth
tears and a protest against the strict
command. Instead I say, 'Nearly
time for bed, so put away your play
things in a few moments.' In this
way they have fair warning, and they
are seldom unwilling to go when the
Dual signal comes. That's my very
It Is well for young mothers to re
member this one mother's way, for it's
the keynote of tho real understanding
of tho child heart. Sympathy is a
quality children never fail o under
stand and appreciate. Imagine a
mother being told by some ono In au
thority to put down her book without
finishing the one chapter which is the
most interesting in tho whole book.
Would It not at least save a frown of

"My little boy has always been very
chivalrous in his attitude toward me,"
said a mother recently. "This trait 1
mako uso of now when he comes from
school saying, as most small boys do
nt ono time or another, 'I don't like
tho teacher.' I talk about tho largo
number of Httlo boys tho teacher has
under her charge, how tired sho must
get, how much' sho needs strong,
manly little boys to help her, and my
son decides at onco that he'd like to

a helpful frame of mind."
DR. WALKER OFFERS

Mrs. Reginald Waldorf of Philadel
phia ond Los Angeles, Col., who ad
vertised for a "living right index fin
ger," can buy tho desired member if
sho likes from no less n person than

Mrs. Waldorf desires a finger to re-
place ono sho lost In an accident. She
is reported to bo independently wealthy
aud capable of paying almost any
price for a finger, provided it suite her.
She believes that the finger can be

ally she will havo a perfect one. Dr.
