G NEW YORK SOON TO HAVE SECOND MOTOR STAGE Old Monopoly Law, Which Has Virtually Forbidden Competition Expires on July 31 Mrs! C. K. G. Billings, Wife of Millionaire Horseman, Is a Familiar Figure at .New 2: NEW YORK, July 26. (Special.) j New York Is likely to have an increased motor stage service. The street railway is after a franchise. At present there is only one motor stage line and under the law prevail ing until the end of July no one could establish a stage line on any street al ready occupied. This gave the Fifth avenue people virtually a monopoly of the business. They spread out and grrldironed the city pretty thoroughly, occupying all the profitable streets. Now the law has been amended to permit other companies to obtain fran. chises, and several have offered to carry passengers for a nickel. The lines operating at present charge 10 cents. Both single and double-deckers are in use now. Some are operated with little noise and some with a terrific rumble. The double-deck stages are much used by sightseers. A snapshot of three of the best known society women and horselovers In New York -was made recently at the horse show. Mrs. C. K. Q. Bil lings is the wife of Cornelius K. G. Billings, the millionaire, formerly of Cleveland, who has been the owner of the world's record holders in the trot ting field for many years. Mr. and Mrs. Billings have one of the most palatial homes in New York on the Heights of Fort Washington, overlook ing the Hudson. Mrs. Vanderpool and Mrs. Fred Johnson are seated on each side with Mrs. Billings. While Commodore Perry was waiting Impatiently with his fleet at Erie he was waiting for the wagon that brought ammunition and enabled him eventually to send the message: "We have met the enemy and they are ours." Perry attacked the Brtish fleets as soon as the wagon arrived. The his toric wagon and the ship have been preserved after years of dilapidation. The wagon was raised from the bot tom of Lake Erie and renovated for the centennial celebration of Perry's victory. The hull of the old sea fighter has been prepared for the cen tennial also.

YOUNG MOTHERS TAUGHT PROPER CARE OF BABIES Educational Bureau Holds Meetings at Courthouse "Visiting Nurse- and Physician Give Instructions as to Food, Baths and Clothes for Infant. VALUABLE information upon how to feed, clothe and care for a baby was given last week to a large number of young mothers who at tended, the regular demonstration held at the Parents' Educational Bureau in room 551, at the Courthouse. The bur eau Is conducted under the auspices of the Congress of Mothers and has been of much help to parents in that it offers to them suggestions in the most up-to-date manner of bringing up children and gives many practical ideas. At the last meeting. Miss Josephine Sullivan, representing the Visiting Nurse's Association, gave an instructive talk to young married, women and later demonstrated how the tiny baby should be bathed, how he should be held to be washed and dressed and how, by ob serving certain rules and regulations the little one may be cared for in such a way that he will not tire the mother. Mrs. N. P. Gale showed the young mothers how to make the in fants' clothes In a simple and. dainty fashion and at small cost. In the models she exhibited unnecessary Beams were eliminated and every de tail was planned, for the comfort of the child and for practical use. Following the demonstration there was a helpful address by Dr. Robert Hall, who took as his subject, "The MOTHERHOOD STUDIED BY PORTLAND WOMEN Manuscript Dealing Wjth Influence on Child Being Circulated Through City by Parents' Educational Bureau Much Interest Being Taken. BY BERTHA TAYLOR VOORHORST. HERE does a mother's ln- jence begin?" This Is the heading of a paper that is being circulated in type written form by the Parents' Educa tional Bureau.

Spring! Juliana, spring!" And so, according to the Irish classic mothers, Juliana came to be known among the officers at the post before whom she was paraded as "Juliana Spring." In these days of the tigh skirt every Juliana is a "Juliana Spring." Sometimes she can't spring high enough without the help of the streetcar conductor, espe cially when she is boarding one of the old-fashioned, high-step open cars. It is hard on the men who make the material for dresses, but fine for the manufacturers of silk stockings. Every transfer point now is a hosiery expo sition. Many diversions are provided for the Summer colony at America's select watering place, Newport, R. I. Bath ing, luncheons, dancings, motoring and tennis are a few of the attractions for the young people who are kept in a busy whirl. The Moreland sis ters, 'Misses May and Esther, are two of the attractive debutantes, and they are devotees of the tennis courts. R. DeBoardman, of Boston. and Mrs. Elsie French Vanderbilt, of New York and Philadelphia, a former wife of Alfred Gwyn Vanderbilt, were recently snapped by the photographer.

Morgan of the stolen cope of Nicolo IV, the Italian town of Ascoll will place this extraordinarily lifelike bust of the late financier (placed on exhibition for the first time by the sculptor, C. S. Pietro, of New York, July 14) in the park of Ascoli, which is called Fuori Porta Maggiore. The bust is to be cast in bronze in the Roman Bronze Works, and the funds for the statue have been raised chiefly . by the Italian colony in New York under the direction of a committee headed by Count Robert Fiocca Novi. The son and daughter of the late J. P. Morgan have ex pressed to the sculptor their pleasure and appreciation of his work. Feeding of Babies." Dr. Hall discussed- the various- kinds of food available and advocated modified milk if the mother was not able to give her child the food nature intended. "When the time comes that you must use cow s milk, said Dr. Hall, "see that you get the best. Investigate the standing of the dairy you patronize and insist on getting milk that comes from a dairy where cleanliness is the watchword. Milk should, be kept cold, preferably on ice and the utensils, bottles and other paraphernalia used should be thoroughly sterilized boiled and scalded. Sickness is caused by germs, therefore don't let them get In to the baby's food. Dr Hall llnsisted that mothers re member to feed the babies regularly about once in three hours being the schedule found most effective. Stomach troubles late in life were the result of Irregular feeding during childhood. said, the doctor. At the close of his talk Dr. Hall an swered a number of questions. A simi lar meeting will be held at an early date when other topics will be dis cussed by prominent physicians. Mrs. Robert Tate, president of the Congress of Mothers, is giving the gatherings her personal attention and assists In giving out literature and explaining the department ox eugenics. The paper was prepared some years ago by Mrs. C M. Wood, the first president of the Oregon Congress of Mothers. In part the manuscript Is as follows: "Where does a mother's Influence begin? There seems to be no begin nlng and no ending. The disciples of evolution bewilder us with their teach lngs of continuity and they offer us no tangible beginning. The reasoning leads us around and around In a circle. The most discouraging feature of this study Is that we cannot go back of our TITE StTNBAY OKEGONIAN, PORTLAND, 1 1 J V is A v &V Hit . 9.

But we can turn away from ' the dark picture of lost opportunity and throw upon the canvas a scene whose atmosphere tones are peaceful, where the glowing shades of light and love express hal lowed motherhood and perfect child hood. It is a comforting thought that the ban. of heredity cannot stand against the power of spiritual nature; that the Creator has given the mental powers dominion over the physical. "The most valuable legacy we can leave our children is a perfect founda tion upon which to build the structure of life. We grant that there Is no mortal being- who does not exert some kind of influence, and that our uncon scious influence is more constant than the conscious, and is always a reflec tion of what we are and not what we seem to be. To exert a wholesome in fluence we must supplant all of our weaknesses, such as giving place to bursts of temper, petty jealousies, lazi ness," Belfish desires, vanity and the like, with noble aspirations until the virtues of true womanhood become fixed . habits. Habits " are the most stubborn thing with which we have to deal.

One mother asked of a member of the committee in charge of the Par ents' Educational Bureau: "What is the attitude of your bureau on pre-natal culture?" . When told that special lit erature was soon to be received from Washington, D. C. issued by the Gov ernment printing office, bearing upon this phase of a mother's influence, the inquirer replied. "Well, tnen, i am heartily in sympathy with your work." thoughts that inspire one's very soul to the melody of: Swing- your honey, klddo, right around your hip. Lordy! What a-feeling- that's the chicken flip. Do the honey shuffle, babe, right on your toeB, - Or this beautiful lyrical gem: Cuddle, cuddle next to me, eVrybedy knows; See that fiddle, fiddle man, he's havln' a lit; Hear that red-faced trombone man; say, kid. he's it; Wheel ltt Reel it! Lordy, can't you feel it! Bow! -wow! That's the bulldog rag. This is not.an obscure number, that I have chosen for illustration, says a " SERVICE York's Great Horse Shows. 4Z writer In the Piano Magazine. It is a "hit" and is an apt example of a hun dred others that are being sung throughout the country as Illustrative of what the public likes in the line of popular songs today. To et forth here even the title of a great many of our popular "hits" would subject this ar ticle to censure or expurgation. Is it not pitiful to look upon a little girl, perhaps 7 or S years old, snapping; her fingers, swaying from side to side, and lustily singing as if her very heart were in every note "Ev-rybody's doin' it, dotn' it." She hears her big sister sing it. her big sister hears It at a "show," and her beau buys it lor her. Glance at the sheet music displayed on the piano in the "front parlor" of nearly every home in the country. Do you see any sonprs like "Annie Laurie, "Ben Bolt or "The Last nose oi sum mer?" No. you see "The Devil's Ball." "The Dippy Rag," "The Baboon Baby Dance," and "The Tango Twist," each one with a title page picturing contor tloned dancers partly clothed and the printed words, "The reigning success of the day." And the worst of it Is that these songs appeal hot only to the low and vicious minded, but the groat majority of our churchgoing. pious-minded people pay. out their money to attend theaters In order to hear and applaud them. Imagine a youthful "tenor," who comes to call .on his sweetheart, a girl of one of our "best families" and when asked to sing, warbles while his inno cent darling accompanies him on the piano: In my harem, my harem. There's Fannie, Annie. Jennie, And the dance they do Would make you wish that you Were In a harem. Classical lines, wonderful idea, novel construction and impressive interpre tation. Or, if the girl's mother happens to be in the room he may perhaps unwitting ly pitch hi3 silvery tones Into these lines: I dreamt I sw my mother-in-law Dancing with the devil! Oh! you little devil, Dancing at the devil's ball. Absolutely new idea, perfect in lyrical meter, crescendo fortissimo. Or, if the girl imagines that she is an Incipient prima donna, she probably may thrill out that popular ditty: Like a baby needs its mother. That's how I need you. or another popular "hit" that runs: When I get you alone tonight. When I get you alone tonisht. There'll bo lots of love and cooing. There'll be surely something doing. When I get yon alone tonight. What delicacy of expression, artistic phrasing and emotional sentiment; di minuendo pianissimo.. And these are examples of our popu lar songs of today.
