THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE TO THE HOME . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 September 1907
THE PRESIDENTS MESSAGE TO THE HOME . Every woman who reads it will wish that as wide publicity might be given the letter written by our President to the recent New York State Mothers Assembly , as was given to his annual message . No editorial comment is needed to strengthen this message to the homes , which the Farmer s Wife hopes to see republished in every woman s periodical and woman s page the country over . The letter reads thus : For one of your topics , how would it do to speak of the place of the father In the home ? Now and then people forget that exactly as the mother must help the breadwinner by being a good housewife , so the father in his turn , if he is wortfi his salt , must in every way back up the mother in helping bring up the children . - . After all , the prime duties are elemental , and no amount of cultivation , no amount of business force and sagacity will make the average man a good cltlzeTi unless that average man Is a good husband and father , and unless h...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 September 1907
The problem of how to secure farm help , both indoor and out , seems as far from solution , as ever , judging from the present inadequate supply for the demand . And Its only practical solution will be found : in so conducting farming operations as to provide employment for help the year round , at as good wages as are offered in other occupations . College students , entirely unused to farm labor , the ¦ shiftless ne er-do-wells who are drifting around the country , or genuine tramps are the only men who can be hired for a few weeks or months in the year , none of whom are reliable help and few are desirable inmates of farm homes . Add to the farm operations such lines of diversified farming as will provide constant employment and insure an income from the winter s as well as the summer s work , such as egg production or winter dairying , arid the farm help problem will be solved . If a separate house could be provided on the farm , many men with families would prefer employment in...

' AGRICULTURAL BULLETINS FOR ' SCHOOLS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 September 1907
AGRICULTURAL BULLETINS FOR SCHOOLS . The demand for scientific arglcultural Instruction In the public schools has so far been recognized in some states as to cause the publication of bulletins prepared by the heads of the different departments In the state agricultural colleges , designed for the use of teachers . In the ungraded - district school , with - more classes already than there is time for recitation periods of sufficient length to give thorough instruction , the teacher can do little beyond distributing the bulletins among the pupils to take home to study and put in practice the knowledge gained from them on the home farm . Pupils might be encouraged to each try glowing some particular kind of grain , vegetable , - fruit or flower , and In due time bring a sample of their productions to school , and describe the methods of cultivation , an occasional afternoon being devoted to such exhibits and descriptions . Parents would also become interested , and from realizing the b...
MARRIAGE IMPROVED THE MAN AND THE MAGAZINE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 September 1907
MARRIAGE IMPROVED THE MAN AND THE MAGAZINE . When Mr . Edward Bok was first placed in charge of the Ladies Home Journal It was amusing to read its preachments to women In Its editorial columns . Educated professional ; women , writers and reformers were highly entertained but hardly edified by the publication of what were supposed to be the beardless boy s vapid vagaries concerning wifely and motherly duties , and it was suggested , sotto voce , as It were , that It was not yet too late for the application of the mother s slipper ; while facetious brethren of the press gleefully dubbed him Miss Bok , and delighted to quote the most striking extracts from ^ he Journal s effusions . ¦ , . • But time passed on , and Mr . Bok married ( It was suggested at the time that he should have married a man so as to have one in the family ) , and it was noticed ere long , that the Journal had much less to say on the subject of woman s especial duties , and it . was supposed that its editor was na...
LEGISLATION BY WOMEN . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 September 1907
LEGISLATION BY WOMEN . Finland has bestowed the right of suffrage upon its women , nineteen of whom have been elected to the national leglstlatlvo body , the Finnish Diet . These women legislators have already prepared several bills , which if their passage Is secured , will add greatly to the nation s welfare . These bills severally provide that there shall be free education for all ; that the manufacture and Importation of liquor into the country for use as a beverage shall be forbidden under heavy penalties ; and that illegitimate children shall have the Same property rights as children born in wedlock . Concerning these measures representative Finnish women say , Free education from kindergarten to college will abolish the curse of social caste . Finland will be the first country freed from the evil of drunkenness . We believe in the sanctity of the marriage relation but we do not believe that Innocent offspring should suffer from the sins of parents . This bill will right a gre...
THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 September 1907
THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR . Both children and parents wonder how the weeks of the long vacation could have passed so quickly as the former make preparations for returning again to their studies , strengthened for their mental labors by the more or less active out-of-door life they have enjoyed and which has added so much to their physical well being . And while the mother Is occupied with putting little garments in order for school wear , making new ones and planning wholesome and appetizing luncheons she should not forget that much of the children s accomplishment in school will depend upon their proper conception of their duties to their teacher and their school mates . They should be Impressed with this fact as they start for school , and also with the fact that the teacher will have the mother s hearty co-operation both In her methods of instruction and her management or discipline of the school , Teach them to regard the teacher as a true friend , who is desirous only of...
HEART AND HOME TALKS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 September 1907
HEART AND HOME TALKS . Although it is man s special privilege to woo and woman must wait to be won , there are , nevertheless , many perfectly proper ways in which she may show hor preference of the available matrimonial material to the one most interested . -j The maidenly nature , while recognizing almost against her will or accepted consciousness the fact that she la the object of unusual attention and tender solicitude on the part of one of the opr poslte sex , alarmed at she knows not what , files from the point of danger or attack , If we may term it so , for a time , and sheltered In some secluded bower , peeps out , half desirous , half afraid , not unwilling to be led along tills new and mysterious way of life , yet almost terrified by its very newness and mystery , — standing with reluctant feet where the brook and river meet . The happiness of the young girl s entire future life depends upon her wise guidance now , yet far too few mothers realize this , and leave their da...
