Two Women Whose Names Are Kept

WASHINGTON. Oct. 24. Making a
total of $19,000 donated from the same
source in 1$ years for the aid of wives
and children of disabled life-savers and
to widows and orphans of those who
have lost their lives In the service, the
usual annual Christmas check of $1000
has been' received by General Superin

tendent I. M. Kimball, coast guard,
from two women who live in New York
These women sisters, one a widow
and the other a spinster have never
failed, since their first check was sent
in 1S96. to send a similar amount for
Christmas distribution in this charity.
They conceal their names from the pub
lic, although, of necessity, they are
known to superintendent K-imball.
The two women who donate the an
nual sum cf $1000 came into the office
of Mr. Kimball a great many years ago,
informed him that they wished to make
donations to some charity, and that
they had been told of distress needing
relief among those who had been de
pendent upon men of the life-saving
service. Mr. Kimball revealed to them
conditions as he knew them; the result
was that the first check was turned
over to him as trustee to dispose of as
he saw fit.
Fifteen years or more ago, another
woman, a friend of these regular con
tributors, gave Mr. Kimball a (1000
check to dispose of as he saw fit in
this charity. He called upon her to ask
what disposition to make of it, but she
would not be induced to suggest any
way other than such as he should be
induced to take in getting it to the
most needy beneficiaries.
Last year the fund, amounting to
$1038, was distributed among 11a bene
ficiaries. The preceding year'' there
were 107 beneficiaries, who received a
total aid of $1017. Between the two
years eight had been dropped from the
relief list, one of them dying: sixteen
were added. The new cases- grew out
of conditions occurring during the year.
Pensioners dropped from the list, other
than the one who died, had received
legacies or by other means been re
moved from the necessity of such spe
cial aid.
Mothers Are Urged to Take
Exercise With Children.
Japanese One Physical Development
to Kratem of Home Training at
Play In Knrly Youth.
AS a child grows it feels boundless
joy In using its fast-growing mus
cles. The developing sense of power
brought about by movement and exer
cise is exhilarating and delightful.
'This, coupled- with the child's Involun
tary association of any pleasure with
the person who gives it, explains the
child's great affection for the teacher
of drill and games, for the one helping
it more fully to exercise its rapidly
growing body.
And it is precisely here that mothers
'miss their golden opportunity. Many
believe themselves capable of helping
their little ones over the thorny paths
to reading and arithmetic, and yet
think they must leave the physical ex
ercises entirely in the hands of others.
There,, could be no greater mistake.
There is not the least need for the
mother to feel "out of it" where phys
ical culture is concerned. There is no
reason why every mother should not
he perfectly "fit" herself and have the
joy of seeing her children grow the
same under her own loving care.
The Japanese mothers have always
known this. They have kept them
selves and their children in splendid
health, and tightened the bond of com
mon Interest and sympathy. And
where are the parents treated with
more tender love and respect than In
Japan? The Japanese mother works
on a system that has taken more than
2000 years to perfect, a system which
has made the little Japanese man more
than a match for any of his bulkier
neighbors. From 18 months upward
the Japanese baby delights in a pur
poseful romp with mother every morn
ing. No troublesome apparatus is
needed, no other little companions; just
a glorious health-giving play between
mother and baby. This develops a
quick and active brain, a ready an
swering of the muscle to the will, &
perfect physical and mental poise, a
supple grace and agility of figure.
