WOMEN'S INTEREST IN POLITICS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 December 1907
WOMENS INTEREST IN POLITICS . A former member of the faculty of the Iowa State University , Professor H . E . Kelley , has been for some years past practicing law in Denver , Colorado . He went there opposed to equal suffrage but , after witnessing its good effects , now favors the movement . In a recent letter to Senator A . H . Gale , of Iowa , Prof . Kelley says : Women are not much concerned with mere partisan politics . Their Interests center around questions affecting education , public c eanliness , public morality , civic beauty , charities and correction , public health , public libiaries—and such subjects as more intimately affect heme life , and conduce to the prosperity of the family . I do not say that men are not interested in such matters , for that would be untrue ; but I do say that such an interest is fundamental In the intellectual activity of women . Men lose sight of these important considerations in the mad scramble of partisan warfare for offices , but women w...
HEART AND HOME TALKS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 December 1907
HEART AND HOME TALKS . What mothers most need ( the mothers who must be . also cooks , seamstresses and laundresses ) is help to courageously and hopefully bear tlie strain of everyday work and care . For this help they are hoping and almost unconsciously looking in every printed page that meets their eyes . It is not wise , dear mothers , to forecast the day s labors and begin to worry over them . One thing at a , time is all that is required . Just give that one thing your attention for the time needed , then turn to the next task . Nothing is required of us that we are not able to perform . That is , the higher law of existence , Gods law , requires no more of us than we can accomplish without harm to ourselves . No mother should labor so far beyond her strength as to weaken her nerves and will power , and , becoming irritable , weak and vacillating , be unfit to perform her higher duty to her children as their wise guide and example . When we consider the multitudinous duties of...

A LITTLE FARM FOR THE BOY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 December 1907
A LITTLE FARM FOR THE BOY . There Isnt any set rule for Keeping boys on the farm who ought to stay there . There are general rules under which one may work to advantage , but the rules are never automatic . Boys are not all sticks sawed off tho same block . Rules should bo varied to suit eae i . But here is a general rule that will fit each case , namely : Take a personal Interest in your boy . A father should not only be the employer of his son , he should be a business partner with him .

Wise and Otherwise . Tom— Say , when ft do # howls under you ! window , that means death , doesn t it ? . Fritz—Yes , if he stays there long . Wo worry as if we had to go through a whole year tomorrow instead of just one day . Before an old man makes a marrying fool of himself , he begins to argue that he is not so old . Which brings worse luck : To break a minor or to spend a lot of time every day standing in front of one ? The best suppers are cooked in those homes where the only light in the house at supper dine is in the kitchen : A . sign that no help is kept , and the woman of the house does her own cooking .

HEALTH NOTES . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 December 1907
HEALTH NOTES . Spend some time out of doorrj every day , Strong tea is constipating as it contains tannic acid which is a powerful astringent .

To prevent swelling after a blow , rub the part with butter . , A fig split open , moistened with water or milk , toasted aiid applied to a gumboil while hot , will bring quick relief . If the stomach is Weak and sensitive , hot wafer is more acceptable than cold when .. taken by . the glassful .
