THE PERFECT WOMAN.
The perfect woman who has been
found among the 400 girl students of
Cornell university overturns many
old-fashioned notions. She Is not a
farm girl, but city bred, yet she Is
studying agriculture for a profession.
She does not eat candy. She Is 5 feet
7 inches tall and weighs 171 pounds
The young lady of the fashionable
novel BO years ago had a waist that
could be spanned with the two hands,
meaning some 16 Inches, wrought by
painful artifice; naturally she fainted
at least once In every chapter and
had to be restored with smelling salts
after cutting her corset strings. Cor-
nell's perfect woman has a 30.3-lnch
waist and a chest measure 4.3 Inches
larger, about the proportions of the
Venus of Milo. She haB never faint-
ed; has never been 111 at all. Gone
Is the girl who used to chew slate pen-
cils to make her face white and was
never seen abroad without her veil
and paraBol. Forgotten Is the maxim
that "the finest women, like the finest
flowers, are raised under glass." The
American girl of today. If gifted with
the leisure, playa tennis and golf and
courts sunlight; the chances are
about five to one that she cannot pos-
sibly squeeze herself into her grand-
mother's wedding gown, sayB the Now

mation favorable environment and
plenty of food have scarcely had more
to do than active habits and thr.

Dr. Hartman's Plain Talk to Young Men
Some yearn ago, in the district of
Jalpalgorl, Bengal, there was a sud-
den epidemic of petty thefts and bur
glaries, Bays the Strand. The police,
completely baffled for some time,
finally arrested an individual on sus-
picion, who, after a preliminary mag-
isterial investigation, wbb remanded
In custody with a view to further in-
quiries as to his antecedents. On be-
ing searched, a police officer, suspect-
ing he had something concealed In
his mouth, ordered htm to open it,
when, embedded round one of hlB
back teeth, was found a hard sub-
stance, which, on being extracted,
proved to be a small, semi-circular
clasp-knife. The suspect, who had
hitherto protested hiB innocence, now
made a full confession, and eventual-
ly turned out to be a member of the
notorious criminal tribe of "Burwars"
from the district of Gonda, in Oudh.
and had already been convicted of
fourteen previous ofTenses! He ad-
mitted that the knife had been spe-
cially made for him, and that he used
It for cutting open bales of cloth and
also for pocket picking.
The death of a young college pro-
fessor In Paris from an overdose of
morphine administered hypodermlcal
ly has led to a movement for the rigid
administration of the law regulating
the sale of morphine. The morphine
habit Is said to be at Its worst among
the young women frequent?™ at the
night cafes and dance halls In the
Montmartre district and in collegiate
circles in the Latin quarter. There Is
a possibility of the arrest on a charge
of homicide of a student of the higher
Normal college who is said to have ad-
ministered the drug to the dead pro-
fessor. All over the world there is a
growing use of so-called habit-forming
drugs To fight it effectively is a
problem which seems to be every-
A Parisian judge has decided that a
woman must not pay more for her
clothes than she does for rent. The
way in which masculine wisdom Is ex-
ercising itself in deciding matters of
dress for women is another strong
argument why such vital feminine af
fairs should not be left to men whose
minds cannot naturally be disinter-
ested on the subject.

Have you ever stopped to think Just
what "economy" In baking really means?
Borne folks neem to have the idea that
saving a little on the cost of the mate-
rials—the flour, egRs, etc.—Is economy.
Others are of the opinion that they have
been economical when they buy the low-
prlced baking powder, and save 10c to 25c.
But both are wrong. For the real econ-
omy—the economy that counts—consists In
doing away with the failures that so
often waste far more than is saved in
buying low-priced materials.
And that beyond a doubt Is the reason
that Calumet Baking Powder Is the favor-
ite of millions of cooks. It absolutely
prevents failures—and guarantees suc-
cess—which In the end is the same thing
Calumet Is unfailing—It makes every
baking good—more tasty, more delicious,
more evenly raised—simply because It is
not only pure and wholesome itself—but
so uniform In quality that you can always
depend upon It. Two World's Pure Food
Expositions—one At Chicago In 1907, and
the other at Paris. France, In 1912—have
officially pronounced Calumet the best

Spring Clipping of Horses.
The modern practice among the best
posted nnd most progressive horse owners I
and farmers is to clip all horses in the
spring. It is done on the theory tlTat in >
their natural Btnte horses were not obliged [
to work, so could shed the winter coat in [
comfort over a period of several weeks.
Since we oblige them to do hard work on j
warm spring days, the winter coat should !
be removed for the same reason that we |
lay off our heavy winter garments. Clipped ,
horses dry off rapidly, hence they do not j
take cold as easily nor are they as prone I
to be affected with other ailments as un-
clipped animals whose longer hair holds j
the perspiration for hours. Because clipped i
horses dry off rapidly they rest better, get ]
more good from their food and come out j
in the morning refreshed and fit for work.
Since the advent of the ball bearing en-
closed gear clipping machine, the work of
taking off the winter coat is easy. With
the machine a horse can be clipped all over
in half an hour, whereas with the old two-
haiul glippcr it required srferal hours to
Dairymen also now clip the cows all
over two or three times a year. The flanks
and udders are clipped every three or four
weeks, so it is easy to clcan the parts be-
fore milking. This means' less opportunity
for dirt and other impurities to get into

One Man Given Hundred Lathe* and
Allowed One Minute to Get Out of
Hostile Range—Alleged Immoral-
ity Given as Cause. •
Dalton, Ga.—A panic has beeu start-
ed In the southern portion of Whit-
field county by night riders, who are
whipping men and women for alleged
immorality and other offences. The
night riders have been at work for
some time, have whipped several per-
sons and have warned others that
they will be whipped unless they
mend their ways.
The other night the night riders vis-
ited the home of John Shannon, a
prominent planter, dragged him from
the bed and lashed him until he was
neurly dead. There were about forty
men In the baud and all wore masks.
It Is alleged that the band gave as
their reason for whipping Shannon
that he had not conducted himself be-
comingly In his household. Shannon
says he recognized some of the night
riders, but Is afraid to give their
names. He has arranged to dispose
of his property and go to Atlanta.
William Brown, who lives in the
southern part of the county, was used
by the band as a guide to Shannon's
house. Brown says the man was tak-
en from home, that about a hundred
lashes were given him and a minute
was allowed him to get out of hos-
tile range. Following the whipping
others were visited, and told that the
whipping given Shannon was only a
sample of what they would get If they
didn't quickly mend their ways.
Earlier in the week two men were
whipped because. It was alleged, they
were unkind to their wives. Two
women were also whipped on the
ground that they cared more for other
men than for their husbands.
The night riding began here In Dal-
ton about two months ago, when
masked men entered the town after
