Wives Want Husband* to
Learn to Cook
Fricasseed, roasted and broiled
meats, vegetables fixed In complicated
styles and desserts de luxe are all writ
ten in bold, white letters upon the slate
of what a husband shall learn to do
within the coming year. Brooklyn
women are seeing to that by having
achieved the promise of a cooking
school for errant males.
The supposedly modern era when
man took over his share of the house
hold duties with a rubber apron and
dish towel after dinner in the evenings
has passed into antiquity with the time
when woman's job was at the kitchen
stove and man's at the office desk.
So housewives of Brooklyn ap
proached the American Gas association
with their idea and It was labeled "ex
cellent." Then the same guardians of
the home approached the male and
prospective half of the family. Per
haps more hesitantly the hunch was
upproved here, too.
It is not enough, the complaining
wives who initiated the movement
against the peace of the husbands
averred, for a man to be a tie to boll
an egg or stew a piece of lamb. There
is no reason why a husband should
not be able to bake bread, make shoe
string potatoes and crisp pie.
"An equal division of labor," Is
their cry—and they point out that while
a man spends'elght hours at his office,
a woman's day lasts from six or seven
in the morning, when she rises to get
the children ready for school, until
after that time at night when they
are finally tucked Into their beds.
Why It la Advisable
to Cultivate "Hobby"
Nature photography, botany, geology,
conchology and ornithology, are all in
teresting hobbles that will take one
into the open air, into surroundings
conducive to health of mind and body.
The study of plants, wild animals and
birds is, to certain ab
sorbing and provides an excellent mo
» tlve for long rambles Into the country
and many hours spent close to nature.
There Is no reason why one should
not have several hobbles and "ring the
changes" according to opportunities.
Many hobbles dovetail Into each other,
as It were, and may be run concurrent
ly. Then It Is perhaps as well to have
an indoor hobby for rainy days and
winter evenings. Sketching, for In
stance, Is both an outdoor and an in
door hobby. Wireless, stamp collect
ing, developing and printing one's
camera pictures, are all hobbies that
may be pursued Indoors, and help to
make spare hours worth while at times
when outdoors Is not particularly
tempting owing to the vagaries of cli
Why Girla Are Preferred
"In Detroit bine-eyed babies are
more In demand for adoption than
brown-eyed ones," remarked a worker
for the Children's Aid society. "We
are unable to supply enough children
for childless homes, but the majority
of applicants, when they describe
the kind of baby they want, specify
an azure-eyed one. Brown-eyed ba
bies are accepted only as a second
"Girls are much more in demand
. than boys. Men hesitate to give their
name and potential business heritage
to an adopted son. They prefer to
adopt a girl who eventually will
marry ontslde the family. Girls are
also expected to be more Impression
able and amenable to control. 1f par

always like to adopt one that re

Why People Quarrel
A well known pathologist has re

That is why an angry man wants
to fight the object of his rage. He

How Chestnut Weevil
Deposits Eggs in Nut
The worm found in a chestnut is
the larva of the chestnut weevil, a
yellowish beetle with a long beak.
During the -blooming season, which is
in June and July, Uie female bores
through the burr of the chestnut and
deposits her small white eggs In the
Immature nut The larvae when
hatched feed on the tissue of the
growing kernels. After the nuts' have
matured the grubllke worms gnaw
through the shell and barrow into
the ground, where they remain for
eight or ten months. They finally'
emerge from the ground as mature
weevils and the life cycle starts over
again. Several eggs may be laid in
a single nut. This accounts for the
fact that frequently a Worm Is found
in a nut which, has no hole In It. —

in spite of fires set under the iron to

the nnion could not be completed, and
the day's program was a failure. But
next morning the sun rose bright the
