"Diet and Digestion."
The following menu will be
Chicken a. la Kins
In timbale molds and bread cases.
It was a full house at the old
Heilig Theater yesterday afternoon,
full to overflowing. Every seat was
taken and dozens of women stood
against the wall or in the lobby during
the time in which Mrs. Kate B. Vaughn
Save her talk on "Food." demonstrated
the use of the fireless cooker and made
an appetizing, nourishing salad, a
dainty and delicious cake and some of
her famous "Dixie biscuits."
The third day of the cooking school
and domestic science lecture course
that is being conducted this week un
der the auspices of The Oregonian was
a bigger success even than were the
two days preceding.
That the women are sincerely In
terested in home making and In learn
ing the art of cooking intelligently Is
clearly demonstrated by the enthusi
astic manner In which they receive
Mrs. Vaughn's advice.
"If woman would give as much time
to studying food values as she does to
studying fashions, the families would
be healthier and happier," said Mrs.
"The woman who chooses and cooks
the meals is the chemist of the house
bold. Her kitchen is the laboratory. If
.he selects wisely she receives back as
Interest, health, harmony and happi
ness in her home." Continuing, Mrs.
Vaughn said: "Much of the crime. Im
morality and degeneracy of the world
comes from persistent wrong feeding."
In speaking of the necessity for
mothers to teach their children about
the values of foods and digestion and
many other things, Mrs. Vaughn got
hearty applause when she said, "I
don't believe the schoolroom is the
place where the children should be
taught the beautiful story of creation
or of digestion. The teacher must sup
plement the home teaching, but it is
the mother's duty to teach her own
children these things. Make a confi
dante of your child. Be his or her best
friend and chum."

DEBUT IN "THE WHIP
IS HELPFUL TO CRITIC
Leone Cass Baer Tells Thrill of Ride in Coach to Wreck Reality of
Train Disaster Uncanny Production of Race Track Scene Stupendous.
BY LEONE CASS BAER.
SOMEONE once asked the late Rich
ard Mansfield if he thought per
sonal experience In a thing were
necessary to portray it and Mansfield
said: "Er well not exactly. My
death scenes are said to be good, but
1 assure you I have never died."
It is an exploded theory that one
has to know anything about anything
to write about it. That man who wrote
10,000,000 stories about the sea had
never seen a body of water larger than
the bathtub, and the woman who wrote
a book on how to rear children never
possessed one. and the woman cynic
who wrote most about the general
cussedness of husbands never had one.
So there you are!
They got away with it, but most of
cs believe it Is better to have at least
a bowing acquaintance with your sub
ject. All of which leads up to the an
nouncement that from now on I shall
feel better qualified to splash In print
about scenery. For I made my debut
as a piece of scenery, & bit of local
atmosphere, at the Heilig Theater last
night in "The Whip." I was in four
mob scenes and had a heavy-thinking
role in one of the 99 acts. Also I rode
In the day-coach-ohly since it's an
English play, it really was a carriage.
To get into it is, I "fawncy," much like
clambering into the real thing. Per
sonally I prefer our own made-in-American
brand. I was boosted up on
a. narrow shelf running the length of
the wooden carriage and seated in a
queer little compartment with a per
fectly strange man sitting opposite. He
was just like all the men one meets
on trains, for he began to talk to me
before the conductor yelled all aboard.
Only instead of offering me the paper,
he yelled: "For heaven's sake, ma'am,
sit where the audience can see yez."
So I moved up against the two-by-two
window and found myself peering
Into a set of audience faces, while
7.000,000 miles of hand-painted hills
and dales and forests primeval rolled
nnisly past my left ear. A whistle
shrieked and wailed its message into
the darkness that we were prancing
along on the track, lights on the fast
revolving wheels made the audience
believe it and a cloud of steam hissed
above us to imitate smoke. Right be
hind my carriage compartment sat the
villain. a dy sd-in-the-mustache Sir
Francis Levison, an, though I glued
my eyes on the top of my companion's
nose and mumbled miles of meaning
less wcrds in an attempt at the "bright
conversation" which the stage director
had told us to appear to carry on, I
was dying with curiosity to turn around
and watch the villain. I knew that
he hod climbed out of his section along
the platform to the car following ours.
In it was "The Whip," a real horse,
who has the title role of the play and
never gets a penny for her histrionic
art. and is the only actress I've met
who wasn't objecting to something.
My companion kicked me niftily tn
my shins and mouthed "Now, don't
screech we're goin' to cut loose." By
which I knew that the villain had done
the dirty deed and poor Dobbin's car
had been left on the track for the al
ways on-rushlng midnight express to
knock the pie out of. Which isn't good
English, but I'm rebellious. I heard
nothing but good English all evening.
From the balcony I watched the iron
painted monster roar down the track,
two alert men pulled some strings and
the horse box fell into splinters, while
the electrician set off an explosion that
was uncomfortably real. The horse, I
may mention, had been taken out of
the car. It's in the plot for the hero
and heroine to rescue him just before
the wreck. The train always waits
obligingly off the stage. And after the
of 'a clean, crisp . cabbage and made
a most attractive as well as sensible
dish, which was passed around for the
inspection of the assemblage.
At today's session Mrs. Vaughn will
explain the processes of digestion and
will use the chicken cooked in -the
fireless cooker yesterday as a means
of demonstrating how left-over foods
may be served to obviate waste.

State Campaign Today.
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, Eugene,
Oct. 21. (Special.) The Young Women's
Christian Association of the University
of Oregon will institute a state-wide
financial campaign for $300, beginning
tomorrow. This is the first time that
the association has had a full-time sec
retary, and it has been fortunate in
securing Miss Mary Gillies, a graduate
of Occidental College and just from the
National Y. W. C. A. Training School In
New York City.
"Acquaintance" parties have been
held and weekly meetings are led by
interesting speakers. The budget of
the association for this year is more
than $1200, all of which has been pro
vided for except the S300, which the
young women are trying to raise in
subscriptions. This money will aid in
keeping up the Bungalow, which is the
headquarters of the Y. W. C. A. a mis

Top Price of Season of $1.16 1-2
May Soon Be Reached Export
Grades of Wheat Advance
One to Two Cents,
There was an all-around advance In wheat
prices yesterday in the local market and at
country points. At the Merchants Ex
change, bids were 1 to 2 cents higher than
on Tuesday. Country markets generally
were a cent higher.
The demand was strong and farmers, as
a rule, were disposed to meet buyers, with
the result that trading was of large pro
portions. The buying was chiefly for Euro
pean account, but millers also bought freely.
Oriental Inquiry for red wheat ' continues,
and flour business with the Far East has
also been marked. English cables reported
the sale of a cargo of wheat at an advance
over the price realized Tuesday.
Spot bluestem wheat sold yesterday at
$1.12. and $1.15 was paid for December de
livery. Bluestem prices are still short of
the high mark of the year,, as during the
August flurry 65,000 bushels of bluestem
sold here at 1.16. This is the record
price since the Letter year. At the Mer
chants Exchange session buyers offered
$1.10 for spot bluestem and sellers asked
$1.12. For last half of November bluestem.
$1.11 was bid.
Club changed hands in the country during
the day at equal to $1.06. At the Kxchauge,
$1.04 was offered for spot and $1.06 tor
ovember club. Forty-fold also brought
more money at interior points, sales being
made on the basis of $1.09 Coast, but buyers
on the floor of the Exchange did not bid
over $1.07. Red Russian was held at $1
on spot, the price bid for December delivery. I
Oats and barley were also higher. For i
October and November oats $27.25 was of- !
fered, an advance of 50 cents over the
previous days price. The oats market in
tne country is very firm.

WOOIs TRADING . IS OS INCREASE
Demand at Boston Especially Keen for

There is more unanimity of sentiment as

have also been In better request and the
market is firmer, particularly for medium

remote future, he finds a great divergence
of opinion, although it seems to be the fact
that there are a greater number who be

the primary markets is to be postponed
longer than was at first thought probable;
notwithstanding a full schedule of sales
