firs. Garfield on Woman's Duties.
The Student, a little paper pub published
lished published bv the students of Hiram
College, quotes an extract from a
letter written by Mrs. Garfield to
her husband several years ago, and
intended for no eye but his. It
fell into the hands of President
Hinsdale, who made use of it in a
lecture to the students, and, as it
showed the qualities of Mrs. Gar-1
field's mind, and her opinions upon
the subject of women's work, he
gave it to the students. The ex extract
tract extract is as follows: "I am glad to
tell j- plhat out of all the toil and
disa ointment of the summer just
enc&'d, I have risen up to a victory;
that silence of thought since you
hUve been away, has 'won for my
Dirit a triumph. I read some-
thing like this tjie other day:
'There is no healthy thought with without
out without labor, and thought makes the
labor happy.VN Perhaps this is the
way I have been able to climb up
higher. It came to me one morn morning
ing morning when I was making bread. I
said to myself, tt ere I am, com compelled
pelled compelled by an inevitable necessity
to make our breadthis?i summer.'
Why not consider ltd pleasant oc occupation,
cupation, occupation, and make it so by' trying
to see what perfect bread T can
make? It seemed 'like, art inspira inspiration,
tion, inspiration, and die whole' of life grew
brighter. The very suiishine
seemed flowing down through my
spirit into the white loaves, and
now 1 oeneve my taDie lsiurnisucu
with better bread than before; and
this truth, as old as creation, seems
just now to have become fully
mine that I need not be the
shrinking slave of toil but its regal
master, making whatever I do yield
to me its best fruits. You have
been king f your work so long
that maybe you will laugh at me
for having lived so long without
my crown, but I am too glad to
have found it at all to be entirely
disconcerted at your merriment.
Now, I wonder if right here does
not lie the 'terrible wrong,' or at
least some of it, of which the
woman suffragists complain. The
wrongly educated women thinks
her duties a disgrace, and frets
under them or shirks them if she
can. She sees man triumphantly
pursuing his vocations, and thinks
it is the kind of work he does which
makes him grand and regnant;
whereas it is not the kind of work
at all, but the way in which and
the spirit with which he does it."
Pecuniary Economy of Food.
Instead of the physical part of
our nature being our servant, it is,
more and more, becoming our mas master.
ter. master. The housemother, instead of
being controlled by her intellec
tual nature, is governed by the
animal nature of her family. If it
is doughnuts, cake, pastry, : pies,
that the family demand,. it is that
from Monday morning until Satur Saturday
day Saturday night. The housemother, after
a time, has a certain pride in say saying,
ing, saying, "I can do but little for my
family, btit one thing is certain
they have what they want to eat,
and the best in thV market;' and
by ''the best in the market," she
means that they procure food for
which t be highest : prices were
paid. Such a housemother ought
to learn to look aV life from the
farther end of the route. ;What
has she stored in her brain for use
in old age? "Kitctien lore?" What
will her children say of her when
she is worn out as their slave?
"She made such good doughnuts?"
What will she reply, to the Master
when he asks what sheaves she
garnered for the king;dom? She
will be forced to look at her empty
hands, and mournfully say: "Lord,
not one thing to show for my life-
work! It is all eaten up."
