Home Economics j
Home economics is a comparative comparatively
ly comparatively new subject in the curricula of
schools. It is newer yet, as a large.
growing, important de;ar:ment of
club work. There is now but one
state that has no home economics
department in its club work, but the
kind of work to be done, the oppor opportunities
tunities opportunities and demand for it vary wide widely
ly widely in different parts of the country.
This is so in the schools and in col colleges
leges colleges as well as in the clubs. There
is a growing demand for text books
in this work which is but one of the
indications that, after years of effort
experimenting with different means J
to accomplish a uniform purpose, j
there has grown up a content of the!
subject and some uniformity in its j
divisions and presentation. Yet, it i
remains wholly true that there is
much popular misunderstanding of
its scope, meaning and purpose. The
tendency to limit its field to the mere
activities of cooking and sewing is
lessening, and both men and women
are rapidly learning to appreciate its
value in the economic field, but the
pioneer work is by no means all
It is still necessary in many places
to begin with cooking and sewing as
was done in Massachusetts way back
in 1S70. Cooking demonstrations
are not to be despised as a means, of
reaching women who are rightfully ;
tired of planning some one thousand I
and ninety-five meals each year, with J
a far too limited number of ideas on
a variety of ways to use the same few j
food materials. But when one must j
begin this way, it is necessary to ;
show that-1 opking and sewing have ;
never been clone bv any one for the :
sake of th motion study they in- j
volve. or for piere motor education, i
Xor should they end in the cake or
the apron. The good bread Mary
learns to make should receive its
prize, when it is worthy to win it,
and the joy of making the best loaf j
in the count ; is far greater than that
of taking thl
prize for the best ora-
tion. The s
nse of real accomplish
ment is verj far reaching when
creative in u
is done. J

ireover, one would be
willing to letjLe it to almost any jury
of men and omen as to which con
tained the jStrre real educational
value, the -h?evement of the best
loaf of bre4d or the best essay on
"Maize as the Food of Our Country."
Yet. the end is not bread, it is far
greater even than this. It is that for
which the wheat is grown, reaped
and milled, and the bread set, raised,
made and eaten, or no less a thing
than human efficiency. The purpose
of home economics is better men and
women, because of their better sur surroundings,
roundings, surroundings, or better individual there therefore
fore therefore better civic or community
homes; then because of their right
living. Home economics specifically
and directly teaches those things
which should and will result in the
all around development of the hu human
man human being, and it is the perfection
of the human spirit which is its aim.
This naturally means that home
economics is a part, a very vital, far- i
reaching part of education. It should,
in fact, be a division of the educa education
tion education department of the clubs, and
would be probably if it had found its
settled place within the limits, the
limitless limits of the educational
field. It means that it is included in,

country a lack of uniformity in the
home economics work which seems
most unsetting to some chairmen,
and which does create difficulties on
occasions. These, however, are more
seeming than real.
It might seem wise to say here
that there is the utmost accord, be between

departments whether in the general
or state federations, and any over overlapping

principally regretted because of the

Representative Underwood, major major-ty
ty major-ty leader in Congress, in his speech
against repeal of the tolls exemption
aw, resorted to the old trick, for
fifty years the favorite of the repub-
icans, of appealing to prejudice
against England. In the course of
his speech, he referred to the tolls
charged by Great Britain on shipping
thru the Suez canal. Seems to the
Star like a statesman of Mr. Under
wood's standing should know better.
Neither Great Britain nor any other
nation owns the 'Suez canal nor
charges tolls on ships passing thru it.
It belongs to a private company, in
which it happens that Englishmen
own a majority of the stock. But the
tolls were fixed by international
agreement, consented to by the other
commercial nations of the world,
when the canal was opened almost
fifty years ago, and when French cap capitalists

men now have. This agreement does
not exempt the ships of Great Britain

the hearing at Ocala was for the pur purpose

contend that they have to meet water

other hand, and it appears justly so,
people at points between Jackson Jacksonville

railroads can transport freight to
Tampa at a certain profit they can
deliver the same class of freight at
intermediate stations at the same

from Jacksonville to Gainesville 24

4 6 cents per hundred, yet the thru
rate from Richmond to Gainesville
is 52 cents per hundred pounds. The

Archimedes was born at Syracuse,

the time of his death seventy-five
years old. He was the greatest man
of his day, and will ever rank as one
of the profoundest thinkers and rea-

and natural philosophy he had no peer

say that he is fairly entitled to be

published them for them when the

were and they asked the priviledge
of using a part of the matter along

we sat there eating, he was apparent apparently

caused me to glance out again into

beyond view; yet what I perceived
brought from my lips a sudden excla
"Brady, some one has been In here!
The outer door is unlatched yes and
the soldier's coat is gone!"
We searched the room carefully, but
discovered no sign of its having been
entered, except for the door standing
slightly ajar, and the disappearance of
the red coat. We dare not carry a
torch into the open, and the night was
too dark for us to trace marks on the
ground. Brady stood In the glow of
firelight, looking to the priming of his
rifle, his face shadowed.
"I am going out awhile, Hayward,"
he said finally. "Yes, I am all right
now. I meant to take you along, but,
I reckon, it wftl be safer not to leave
the Dutchman here alone. However, I

at the shore, and could perceive the
stars reflected on the surface of still
water. As I lingered there clear of the
woods shadow, my courage gradually
returned, and our situation appeared
less desperate. Whoever the fellow
was who had killed D'Auvray he might
have as much cause to fear the Indian
raiders as we did. The mere fact that
he wore a red coat was no direct proof
he was a British soldier; doubtless
many a forest renegade had picked up
bits of discarded uniform. Besides,
why should any soldier desire to kill
D'Auvray? He had led his Indians to
action under Hamilton. More likely
the fellow was French, and the murder
the end of some private feud. His
only desire then would be to get away
safely, to escape unseen. Brady would
learn all this, and he would be back
I do not know how long a time
passed, only I had circled the house
twice, skirting the edge of the woods
in my rounds, keeping well in the
blacker shadows, and moving noise noiselessly,
lessly, noiselessly, every nerve alert. Back of the
house I discovered a mound of earth,
heaped as a roof, over an opening in
the ground, evidently a cellar of some
kind. So far as I could discover, by
groping in the darkness, there was
nothing concealed within, but the en entrance

I sat down there where I could see in
every direction, with my rifle across
my knees. The stars yielded a spec spectral

against the earth mound. Yet I re remained

when I first perceived a figure flitting
out of the black fringe of woods, I half
believed it a dream. But it was no
dream, and I sat up suddenly, my
heart beating like a triphammer, and
stared. I could see little, not enough
to determine whether the intruder was
savage or white, merely perceiving an
indistinct form, crouching low, yet ad advancing

was no hesitancy, no evidence of fear,
but merely the natural caution of one

"Stop where you are!" I ordered
sharply. "Drop your gun, and stand

almost an exclamation; the stock of
the rifle sank to the ground, but the

soft voice, trembling a bit neverthe nevertheless,
