HEART AND HOME TALKS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 August 1907
HEART AND HOME TALKS . So many hearts starve for the want of appreciation . There is nothing harder in life than to give of one s best , day after day , in thought and effort and receive no reward beyond what is doled grudgingly out , in wage to . the employe , in support to those who accepted the promise to love , honor and cherish . After the death of a good woman who had lived a long and useful life , who had borne and reared eight children , and cared for a partially invalid husband devotedly arid untiringly for many years , and who because of that care survived her , was given this word of commendation from him—more than he had ever given her in life— She was an awful clever woman ! Wei are told we have the reward of well doing . But the years ar . s long , and one wearies even of well doing when there are no evidences of appreciation . A little meed of praise now and then is snch a help in lifting and bearing the daily burdens that It should not be withheld . This apparent lac...

THE REST CURE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 August 1907

MINNESOTA'S ANTI-CIGARETTE LAW . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 August 1907
MINNESOTAS ANTI-CIGARETTE LAW . It would seem that the law passed by the last Minnesota legislature leaves no excuse for the sale of tobacco to , or allowing smoking among boys .

Any person under 18 years of age or any minor pupil who shall use cigarettes , cigars or tobacco in any form on any street , or in any public place or business house , shall be arrested by any officer of the law or upon complaint of any citizen and is subject to fine or Jail sentence . Sentence may be suspended if the minor furnishes evidence to convict tho person who sold or gave him the tobacco . The public , and especially parents and teachers , should see that this law is rigidly enforced . American housekeepers are justly proud of the distinction America enjoys of being the country of the cleanest homes in the world . The slo...
