Miss Polly Evans.
.: Miss Evans tells of tha inborn eour
. (.lesy of all Japanese, perfected by tha
, education and tha customs of tha coun-
try, which marks aU classes from tha
poor anl haggard old "women searching
; In tha muudy canals for snails, to tha
gracefully garbed woman of tha higher
.classea who express In every-way their
care for the comfort anAf. welfare of
others.. The little wom "san," which
is so commonly used In connection with
the possessions and property of others,
and which , we translate . honorable, la
.indicative . of the politeness of their
common speech. L '
- ''--.: : Honorable Znaldea topty.
- . On one occasion only did the speaker
remember to have heard the word used
! as. applied ta that which belonged to
- the person himself, and that waa ' ia
the case of the guide who took a party
up the active volcano, Aaama-Yama-San.
. Lunch had not been provided and
,. rit waa a- matter of seven or eight hours
, before they could reaoh the bottom of
tha mountain again-where food awaited
them. : "Please,, madams, to make
.haste," said the guide, "for my fconor-
.able lnsldea are, empty." , Thia waa a
slip of the tongue but waa perhaps
to ba excused under the circumstances.
The speaker spoke la the moat inter
" sting .way, of soma of the prominent
Women of Japan and of what they are
doing to help In the education of the
women. .One of the leading women and
a pioneer In educational nfettera la the
Marquise Oyama, wife of the famous
general, who waa educated In this coun
try and whose Influence hss been large

of two leading unmarried women of
Japan, where unmarried women are rare.
Bhe, as well as the other noted spinster
who is largely influential In eduoatlonal
matters, Miss Tsuda, remalna unmar

Convict Ma7 Be In the River.
- -(8pedr Dkrpatek te The Joareal.) ' 1
Boise. Idaho, May 11. No trace haa
ret been found of Andrew Gilbert, the
convict who escaped from the peniten
tiary Friday night It la thought ha
may have committed suicide by Jumping
Into the Boiae river, which ne told the
guard he would do if ha got the chance.
TW Housekeeper and Pure Food.
That waa a auggeatlve and interest
ing meeting held Monday afternoon In
the Interest of pure food. ' Many points
were brought out which are of especial
Interest to the housekeeper,' Indeed, the
whole matter of the i adulteration of
food, its substitution. Its proper ban
dllng la the marketa and - the proven
tlon of contamination by the dust of
the air Is largely a housekeeper's cues
tionA ' -A. - , ' -
These things were emphasised: that
housekeepers should: abolish, the. tele
phone In doing their marketing. A per
sonal visit to the dealer Is really, nee
essary to Insure a general tidiness and
sanitation of the premise. One dealer
la quoted aa saying that the silver thaw
of last January - which put the tele
phones out of commission also made
him acquainted with some of his patrons
whom he bad never seen before..
Another duty which was urged was
that of apeaklng to the dealer when
anythtng la seen which Is unhygienic.
- One of tha speakers said that aha saw
a woman buying uncovered oysters and
upon the oysters Ahe saw a fly, . She
realised that she ought to speak to the
woman and remonstrate, but pleading
that she was tired and disliked to make
herself disagreeable aha refrained and
felt a-ullty. Housekeepers should In
sist upon having foods covered In the
markets and npon the .personal clean
liness of those who handle xnem.
Here was another good suggestion:
that the women of any one neighbor
hood who have the same source of milk
supply should appoint a committee to
visit the premises of the dairyman and
Investigate his methods. The man who
la doing as he ought will be glad to
have his patron's confidence, and the
one who Is not will learn what Is re
quired. . :vr.
It Is -worth while emphasising also,
both early and often, though It was not
touched upon at the meeting, that often
the housekeeper la herself responsible
for- the contamination or suon suo
stances as milk and butter. Too often
the milk which has been delivered In
good condition Is poured Into a pan or
pall which has not , been scalded, and
therefore It oourej then the milkman
bi-mad. Often It la placed where
tha odor of vegetables, such aa onions,
may be communicated to It, and again
It la the milkman who gets the blame,
if w cannot all have Ice, we can. all
have oold water, and right here I am
stA tA av that if a pall or pan of
milk la plaoed In another vessel holding
cold water, and a xowei ia piacea wvor

When preservatives are need la meat.
as was discovered la some of our city
marketa not long ago, the housekeeper
may buy unknowing. In a general way.
It la aafe to say, look out for hamburg
ateak whloh la too red. When beef baa
been ground for a little while, if un
treated with preservatives It will turn
a graylah color. If It haa preservatives
It will stay a bright red. Of course
absorb only a small amount of
poison with each portion of the meat
but should we pay to be poisoned at all?
Small doses of poison, as Dr. Tenney
showed, may oause no effect at the
time, but their long-continued uae wilt
be disastrous. Besides, such preserva
tives cause meat to pass : for , fresh
which Is really far past the proper
stage. - Again, as the preservatives pre
vent the decay of the meat, they also
prevent Its dlgestlqn and assimilation.
See tha meat out and ground, and It
will be more satisfactory. i
V In taking up the aubjeot of the con
tamination . of food with the germ a
whloh are la the air. Dr. Pieroe said.
and surely many echoed, "Banish the
broom and' the feather duster." Long
haa It been urged that- the proper way
to oust a room la not to sweep the duat
off into - the air to ' be again . de
posited, and yet one constantly sees it
done. A damp cloth la infinitely better
and more hygienic, or, aa aome prefer,
a cloth which haa been slightly oiled
with a mixture of, sweet oU and kero-

It la a long warfare which woman
has beea waging against dirt It aha
haa not aa yet been entirely suooesszui,
at least aha haa progressed, and the
widespread Interest In sanitation and
