DIVISION OF LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 6 June 1913
DIVISION OF LABOR. Y/hether for necessity or from choice, women are encroaching on many of the fields of labor, formerly exclusively occupied by men. Men, on the contrary, show no disposition to wrest from women the domestic work, long regarded as woman's pe culiar and special allotment.. Women nowadays are ambitious to compete with the other sex, and believe that: their ability is quito equal to the tasks they set themselves to perform, whilst men usually are shamed if found doing what they contemptuous' ly speak of as "women'B work,". The following anecdote illustrates the fact:—"A man helping his wife to clear away the dinner things, re marked: 'I would help you to wipe the dishes, dear, but, you -know, it isn't men's work.' 'Oh, indeed,' said his wife, 'you are mistaken,! and she referred him to Book II. of Kings, xiii. The astonished husband,silently : picked up the cloth, and, in view of the precedent related, no longer de murred at the task before him." • ,r To women who pine...

" Seaton and Beveridge had complet ed their term of service, and both felt that they had seen enough of the war.

CHAPTER XIX. Amulian's Return—The Curiosity of Rajah. Away in the valley on the further side from the mouth of the great pass, the Bursham army was drawn into line. The Rajah rode well out in front. It was a great sight, indeed, on that level plateau, about five miles in length, with an average breadth of one and a half. Near the centre o£ the plain stood five thousand sol diers, dressed in all the grandeur of Eastern military costume, the bright colors spangled with burnished sola and silver ornaments, glittering in the morning's sun, scattering rays of light of every color around, the foliage spotted with autumn brown, and the ripe fruit hanging tempting on every tree, in this, the garden and granary of Bursham. All around stood the mighty barrier of snow-capped moun tains. From an opening in the hillside in front, a gay cavalcado was deploying on to the level. It was the Rtanee Amulian, mounted on a white ele phant, which was fifty yards in front of the escort; she moved quickly ...

As quickly Seaton Tyas after him, but short as the dis tance was, he, on clearing the arch way, could see no sign of the Fakir. ■' The place was perfectly open, not ■ even' a tree to conceal anyone; yet, i strange as it was, no one was visible. Seaton stood gazing, all around for, a time, wondering If the ground would open and allow the spectral form to arise, for spectre he now thought it must have been. Wandering around, and still thinking what it really could be he had seen, he heard the tread of horses' feet. He turned, but swift as the wind rode past him a fully-equip ped private of the 6th Bengal Lancers. How he w...
