INJUSTICE OF COURTS OF JUSTICE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 January 1908
INJUSTICE OF COURTS OF JUSTICE . In our boasted courts of justice , where every man is tried by a jury of his peers , many of the greatest injustices are often committed . The comparison is often made of the punishments dealt out to the man who in extremity of need steals a loaf of bread , a sack of flour , or a coat , and the man who steals thousands of dollars from those who trust him by some chicanery perpetrated on a large scale as a company or corporation Men are also arrested , thrown into jail , suffer loss of time , money and reputation , and untold mental anguish , and , if fortunate enough to prove their innocence of the crime with which they are charged , what redress have they ? Are they compensated in any way for their losses and sufferings by the state , through the mistaken zeal of whose officers they were wrongly accused ? Nay , verily . There are numberless cases on record of men who have been arrested , tried , convicted and sentenced for crimes which they never co...
SELECTING READING FOR THE HOME . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 January 1908
SELECTING READING FOR THE HOME . One of the most important matters for the consideration of parents just now is the selection of reading matter , particularly for the young . While this should be attractive it may be also instructive and helpful . The best works of fiction present life problems and work out their solution in a way that leads readers to the right conception of the situation involved , and leaves them either pitying the characters , whose struggles are described , in their failures , or rejoicing with them In their successes . One can hardly go astray in choosing monthly periodicals , so many that are most excellent are presented for both young and mature minds , but the question of what weekly and daily papers shall come Into the home is a very difficult ono to decide , because of the prevalence ot yellow journalism , the practice of so freely describing and elaborating the details of every criminal occurence and prosecution . Persons of natural refinement and good m...
START THE DAY RIGHT . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 January 1908
START THE DAY RIGHT . In far too many farm homes the day is begun in most uncivilized fashion . Responding to the father s call the boys stumble downstairs yawning , get into their out-door garments and start for the barn without a good word for or from anybody , for mother Is not yet up and father is too busy struggling with the kitchen fire to notice them . The mother bustles out next and does the things to the stove which father forgot were necessary to make it burn and hurries to start the breakfast . Her first word to the girls as they come Into the kitchen being some hasty directions as to what to do to help hasten the preparation of the meal . By the time breakfast is on the table the minds of all are so occupied with thoughts of the day s work , or the necessity of accomplishing certain tasks before school time perhaps that there Is no thought of exchanging morning greetings . The writer once knew a jolly farmer whose morning call to his boys was a regular fog-horn Doom : G-...

COURTESY IN MARRIED LIFE MAKES TRUE HAPPINESS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 January 1908
COURTESY IN MARRIED LIFE MAKES TRUE HAPPINESS . By R . N , Craycroft . What is the salt which provides happiness in married life ? Certainly it is unfailing courtesy between man and wife . Marriage is life with the veneer rubbed off . It is the one relationship in the world in which men and women feel that they can dispense with all the amenities of civilization and in which they have the courage of their rudeness . Human beings have no idea of how many faults they possess , nor how they look to others , until they hear the litany of their shortcomings chanted with relentless candor by their husbands or wives . Other people laugh at your good story . Your wife feels called upon to remind you that she has heard it forty times before and that you are a failure as a raconteur anyway . Your people praise your youthful vivacity . Your husband feels free to tell you not to make a fool of j-ourself by acting like a school girl when you look like forty years old . It is on our husbands and ...
WOMAN'S LATEST TRIAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 January 1908
WOMANS LATEST TRIAL . Wife of the Auto-Maniac Is to be Pitied But There Is a Certain Remedy . And now its the machine . It used to be the club or business that lured a man from his fireside and caused a wife to sit up nights concocting schemes to win back a husband s straying affections . Time was when &gt; the smoking habit , the drink habit , poker , the races and similar diversions were regarded as the chief enemies of domestic felicity . But that time is past . None of the old hobbies has the terror for the wife it once did . The old excuses regarding a husband s late homecoming have lost their significance . The young bride who once upon a time would have wept to see her bridegrooms absorption In the morning paper has quite a different plaint to make as to the occasion of her first disillusionment . And it is all due to the machine . Auto-mania—or motor-mania , whichever one chooses to call it—is the fever that has seized upon modern man and the wife of to-day finds her...

BURKE KENNEDY'S QUEST . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 January 1908
BURKE KENNEDYS QUEST . ( Continued from page 139 . ) the property will yield better interest , and I think he is right . But the Improvements call for mor » capital than he has ; and he wrote to us , asking that cotton be sent him for a year and a mortgage be accepted on the property in payment . This would enable him to use his money In the improvements . We consented , and so far have sent him thirty thousand dollars worth , and will ship ten more this week . Now mortgages are not In our line , and it occurs to me that belonging to Mill Run , you might be able to handle this mortgage to better advantage . We could debit it to your account with us . Moreover—though this la but a passing thought , and not advice—perhaps the bulk of your money , say a hundred thousand , could be advantageously used in buying an- interest in the property . It is making a fair profit , and your money would furnish a good working capital to go on with the improvements . Ah ! at the expression on Burke s...
Wise and Otherwise . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 January 1908
Wise and Otherwise . A word to the foolish is always resented . Many a man s , success leaves a bitter taste in his mouth . They always rise most steadily who take tim » to lift others . The coming of sorrow may be the best answer to tho prayer for strength . . The only safe escape from an unpleasant duty is by going through it . Prodigals have always exceeded tfio supply ot fatted calves . A spoiled child is almost as hard to raise as a turkey . Hoys like pie so well they never know what kind it is thoy are eating . A little courtesy may go further tlinn a lot of controversy in establishing religion . Tapering off a liad habit is often only the wlrt &gt; thug of the kindling for a new start . Better pass up the offering than waste your gonitis trying to make a nickel look like a dollar Whatever helps us to think more kindly of another helps ID bring in Hie kindgom of Heaven , The best cure for tlie bines is to stop thinking of yourself and begin planning happiness for other...
