Ihave lived at home with I like to read and but my mother thinks I should keep my telf busy for the greater parb of the day about housework and I do not like housework and I do like to and it seemsto me that I should bo doing wrong to give so much time to housework when I might be im proving Now will you tell me candidly just what on think about and oblige yours Just what we think about Olive You should be a little more definite in stating your needs in a case so desperate as this appears to What do we think about your ing to do bouseverk when preferto study We think your preference is not first to be The need for your doing it is the first ques tion to be and you should have given us some indication of A GRAVE But let us begin at tho The problem yon state is grave and one that is every now and then coming up to be With women entering into the fields of the higher education and sipping the sweets of a constantly wid ening while the sphere specially designated as claims so much of their thought and it is pertinent to ask and to discuss what shall be the attitude of the educated young today toward the undignified and unpleasant details of The pervading opinion in the minds of and of regard to these things is that the instinct for house hold duties is innate in womanly This much is true The love of home and family is inborn in the heart of every Household duties she tol erates because she loves these But no woman feels a hidden longing for the companionship of pots and or feels her whole soul go out in yearning toward sauces and or recognizes the cook ing range as next of No woman loves these Xor should That she does them is of grace and not of This proposition may be laid down at the outset as broad enough to cover all the A woman ought to do just as much of the housework in a house as actual necessity lays upon her in securing the comfort and welfare of the To do less than this is unworthy to do more merely for the sake of is undigni And here is where you failed to be How necessary is it that this work should be done by women members of your family If your father is able to supply the means wherewith strong hands no other accom plishment may be secured to do this work for aud if you should then elect to be your own hewer of wood aud drawer of you would be lacking in a proper sense of personal dignity aud of the fitness of You as you use your time to much better DOXT 3IOU5T TOO But the other dont mount too high a Dont feel too keenly the value of your time and the duty of improving Just try to be a JiealtJhy sensible and the self improvement may be taken It appears altogether probable from your letter that there is some necessity for your doing your share of the household If it be if in any way the burden of home cares is the heavier for your mother orfor others because of your withdrawal from then you ought to be ashamed of yourself if you are unwilling to drop book or essay or brush and bare your own young strong arm and bring your own active brain to the The dignity is in tho not in the work and if you meet the mean most uncongenial detail of household life bravely and and discharge it just as well you possibly you wSl flnd tho wlinkround of menial duties be coming illguilitfl md So they will minister quite as much to your hap piness and to tho improvement of your mind and to youispiritual growth as the best
