THE WOMAN WHO WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
THE WOMAN WHO WORKS. Wtioee fault is It that tbe woman works? If It be a crime or n wrong, ■he is gulltleu, for man's laws hh.y she must not take her own life, and her only choice la between that or engaging in gainful occupation. The persistency with which men critic* Insist upon regarding the woman wage earner aa an Inexplicable problem is a discreditable reflection on their common sense. Since the worker Is everywhere in evidence there Is no difficulty in observing many varieties of her. i ho majority of women wage earners give every Indication of being the victims of adverse circumstances, and only the craziest, imagination could conceive that mlllons of women wonld voluntarily toll In mills and offices through summer's blistering heat, when trees and Held flower, woods and sens seductively beckon to holiday making, or thnt in the bitter weather of midwinter they would brave the terrors of blizzard for a less vital reasn than to keep body and soul together.—Chicago' News.
COURTESY IN THE HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
COURTESY IN THE HOME. There Is no place where there 1 greater need of true, refined, everydn' I predated than In the home circle. Yet \• a bow many households do we see an entire lack of It Ilia husband cornea In tired and surly, hurries down bit meal, gives the cat a kick and departo without one kind word or gracious act to any one. The children are noisy and quarreli some. Tbe mother, tired and nervous, . has only sharp, recriminating words tor her husband 1 , the children and the ; servant. The whole atmosphere appears surcharged with the very quintessence of disturbing and disheartening element*. Let a visitor come In to make a neighborly call, however, and how quickly everything Is changed. Both husband and wife welcome him with the sweetest of smiles and courtesy When the visitor departs, he Is bowed out with the most charming grace and In silver tones Invited to call again. This Is eminently right and proper, but why should not the same consideration prevail among those who a...

THE QALITY OF NEATNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
THE QALITY OF NEATNESS. Comparatively few men are distinguished for habits of neatness, yet none can forgive a lack of it in their wives. Yet neatness is one of the rarest of feminine qualities. Early and persistent must l&gt;e the training which carries the girl into womanhood with her "bump of neatness" well developed. Unless inherently fastidious during school days, she Is liable to drift into careless habits which she never outgrows. One girl may have a trick of leaving shoes about her room. As a mere tot she was permitted to do this, and as she grew older the untidy custom was never abandoned, for the simple reason that she hei self did not notice anything unusual about It, and probably nobody elße took the trouble to correct her. Without thinking anything alsuit It. some girls, otherwise above reproach In their personal habits, leave bunches of combings on their dressing tables, while the combs themselves are permitted to retain for days .it n time their harvest of dea...
WHEN TO CLEAN THE TEETH. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
WHEN TO CLEAN THE TEETH. It the teeth are to get ut one thorough cleaning during the day, Just before retiring Is tbe beat time to give It to them, as there are six or eight hours during sleep that the salivary glands are Inactive, and fatty and starchy foods may be lodged between and around the teeth and, bathed in saliva, n partial digestive fluid, undergo decomposition, forming acids which act mor.e or less readily on the tooth structure at the time of Its formation. The salivary glands not being active during sleep, acids are not diluted as during tin- day. A free flow of saliva prevents the had eeffets of acids thus formed.
SCRAPS OF SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
SCRAPS OF SCIENCE. An electric pickpocket alarm has been invented by a man In Manchester, England. The experiments of Muller prove that If mlcrohes be placed lb a gun Barrel the wound made by a bullet fired from It would be Infected by the microbes. Such common substances as sugar glucose and chalk liavlng been found to absorb sunlight nil day and to glv ihonis from the mass and collecting I under water. Commercial phosphorus Is satisfactorily made by mixing tbe finely powdered phosphate material with carbon then, when halted, distilling tho phosand sand In the electric furnace and it off In rays during the night, tbe discovery of some means for rendering these rays useful in Illuminating bouses at night with little expense seems a possibility of, the near future. The thorium atom, universally believed since Its discovery by Beraellus three-quarters of a century ago to be a single and indivisible particle of matter, now appears as the progenitor of five new substances, even more ele...
LOVE IS THE MAINSPRING. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
LOVE IS THE MAINSPRING. Political economists have told us that self-interest is the mainspring of Industry. It Is not true. Love is the mainspring of Industry. It Is love for the home and tbe wife and the children that keeps all tbe busy wheels of Industry revolving, that calls tbe factory hands early to tbe mill, that nerves the arm of tbe blacksmith working at his forge, that Inspires tbe farmer' at his Ipow and the merchant at bis desk, that gives courage to tbe soldier and patience to the teacher. Ersklne was asked how he dared, as an unknown barrister, face a hostile court and Insist on his right to be heard. "I felt my children," he replied, "tusglng at my robe and saying, 'Here Is your chance, father, to get us bread.' " It is this vision of the children dependent on us that inspires us all In the battle of life—Rev. Lyman Abbott In Atlantic.

What Is better than presence of mind in a railroad accident? Absence of body.

HANGNAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
HANGNAILS. Fingers that would otherwise be pretty are often disfigured by Imng- •alls. Nothing can well be uglier than that* little red tags of flesh at the corners of one* nails.

When the skin has grown upon the nail soak the Anger tips in warm water for five minutes, then push it. down gently with the towel. If one makes use of this gentle process two or 'three times a day or remembers to dry the ends of the fingers by robbing down instead of up, tbe nails ought to keep a good shape without the danger of making hangnails.

MARRIAGE AND MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Sentinel — 19 December 1903
MARRIAGE AND MONEY. Here is what a writer—a man—aays in one of the leading magazines about the cynical statement which Is so often made now-a-days that marriage la "a business transaction": So far from accepting the theory that "nlarringe is to be regarded as a business transaction, I should claim it to be one of the best means of securing happiness in married life that young people should not only love each other warmly, but should begin poor, if possible, and thus have the discipline of mutual sacrifices and the pleasure of making their way upward in prosperity by gradual steps. It is one of the merits of uman nature, or at least of American nature that a young girl may be brought up to every luxurxy, and may still, after marrying the man she loves, take a positive delight In sacrificing for hia sake all her previous ways of living; and she will do the honors of the log cabin as if It were an ancestral hall. I know a young girl conected with a fashionable family, a person of whom ...

Then, pursing - » lips as was his wont, he is said to -.e remarked: "I hope that my ..est enemy is satisfied now."
