THE BETTER WAY [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 February 1907
THE BETTER WAY The work which Judge v Lindsey lias done and continues to dp in the juvenile court which he caused to be established in Denver , should be an object lesson to parents of the / greatest value , arid lead them to better understand how to guide their children on through the years of youth to manhood and womanhood . Judge I . indsoys method , is not new . He simply . appeals , to the better nature of the erring boys aiid girls , makes them feel that he is their friend and counsellor , and putstheiii on .. their honor to hel p them to better the conditions of life in the city by themselves conforming with its rules and ordinances in accordance with their own sense of right and justice , and leads them to form-ideal standards for themselves . This any parent may do with any boy or girl , no matter how indolent , obstinate . or rebellious may be tlie childs attitude , that is old enough to be reasoned with . The indolent lad and lass will be ashameii of laziness when shown t...

CENTRALIZED SCHOOLS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 February 1907
CENTRALIZED SCHOOLS . Whatever may be the objections , and parents in country districts declare there are many , io the centralization . of the entire number of schools in a township , there should be at least central high schools so located-as to be within easy reach of every farmer s family , that his children may have equal educational advantages with those of the residents of towns ajid cities . And the curriculum of such schools should include courses in scientific agriculture and home economics , that those students who prefer to follow the vocations of farming and homemaking may be as fully prepared for their work as are those who are to enter upon commercial and professional pursuits . It has been suggested that the grounds for such schools include ten or twenty acres of land , upon which to carry on experiments and demonstrate in a practical manner the agricultural instruction given . The agricultural department of such a school with a live enthusiastic leader at its head ,...

WO "CLOSED DOORS . " [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 February 1907
WO CLOSED DOORS . An exchange published recently a most beautiful article on Closed Doors , the doors which the writer described as closing upon fcabyhuod , childhood , girlhood and boyhood , and upon the desires and pleasures , friendships and attachments of later life . The article was most beautifully conceived and written , but I thank God that away down the vista of years to the very earliest one of my recollection , there are no closed doors . The touch of memory swings wide the door of every year , every past experience , and brings to me constantly all the sweetness and beauty and love that have enriched my life . There are no closed doors—1 think there cannot be , either in time or eternity . There have been mistakes and sad experiences , bereavements and sorrows and losses and misplaced friendships , but I would not close a door upon one of these , for they , too , have made me richer , in that through them has come to me the knowledge that gives the power to extend sympat...
A BUSINESS MAN IN HIS HOME [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 February 1907
A BUSINESS MAN IN HIS HOME Through a recent misfortune the writer had the good fortune to be for a time the guest in a home in which every interest and care of a sweet and devoted mother was shared by an affectionate and devoted father . The home was for the time without a maid , and this father , who is a most successful and prosperous business man , did not think it beneath his dignity to assist not only in the care of the children , his usual habit , but in any household task . Coming into the house always with a cheery word , and engaging in a romp or game with some one or all three of the children , or sitting down to read the evening paper , he was all the time alert for an opportunity to relieve the little wife of some care or task—and they have been married sixteen years . He helped to dress the children , as painstakingly as though it were the most important business in life for the time being , hooking up his high school daughter s dress in the back ; carried trays to and ...
HABITS [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 February 1907
HABITS The power of habit is one of the strongest forces or influences of our lives . Heredity , prenatal influences and natural environment each contribute to make us-what we are , but the habits we are allowed to fdrm in our early years , especially habits of thought and expression , are much greater factors in the outcome of our lives . The formation of habits of neatness , order , obedience and industry have long been conceded to be important , but of even greater importance is the cultivation of habits of cheerfulness , forbearance , patience and forgiveness as contributing to soul growth , spiritual development , and so fitting us for greater usefulness and enjoyment—both m this life and the life to come . If parents have neglected to establish such habits in their children , those children when of . older . growth should strive ( o , form them themselves , • for . no one is properly equipped for life , without them . The formation of good . and 1 pleasant habits and the check...
HEART AND HOME TALKS [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 February 1907
HEART AND HOME TALKS Nowhere is there such need of perfect control as in the home and schoolroom . The mother expects to control her children , the teacher her pupils , as the commander his army , before they have learned to control themselves , and the result is—failure . We arc ambitious to go out and conquer the world before we have learned to conquer ourselves . We feel sufficiently strong for the conflict of competition before we have attained sufficient strength of character to control the conflict of our own emotions and passions . We undertake the training of other human souls before we understand the moods of our own and how to control them . The happiness of our families , our homes and our entire lives is in daily jeopardy , because from the lack of self control , hasty words ,- unconsidered , unkind speeches escape us . . There are those who boast of their lack of self control , saying , When I am angry folks know better than to stand in my way ; I can stand about so muc...

IS IT WORTH WHILE ? [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 February 1907
IS IT WORTH WHILE ? The question is often asked if the higher education is worth while—if enough is gained to compensate for * the means , the time and strength , expended . To . one who has attained the hei g hts and looks back to the mediocre condition from whence he has climbed , such a question seems preposterous . , He has . found that education has not only trained the mind . and revealed unknown mental powers , but it has opened up new and rare fields of enjoyment and opportunity , Sri much of nature that was before but a closed book is now an urifailinjg and constant source of enjoyment . The . hidden courses of things ; -elementary forces and their work through countless ages , have been revealed to him ; the secrets of the stars have been told and the scroll of the universe unrolled ; the best and greatest ¦ meii of all . ages have become through the printed page his instructors and-friends ; the echoes of the past are in his ears , presaging yet greater tilings and greate...
