THE HOUSEHOLD. THE COST OF KEEPING HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
-------------;;~zr~l~= THE .HOUSEHOLD. THE COST OF I(EEPHtC HOUSE. BY HOLEN LOUISE JOHNSON. Many years ago Thoreau. wrote, "\When one builds a dwelling house it behooves him to exercise some native Yankee shrewd ness. tnat he build not a workhouse, a museum, a labyrinth without a clue, or a splendid mausoleum instead."

The cost of .eeping house depenis upon several factors, in which the house itself is the first one. It must be remembered in aal these talks between ourselves thabi we are never referring to money .alone when we speak of cost.
