Blackfoot News (Newspaper) - May 23, 1896, Blackfoot, IdahoCollecting rent the old lady took her knitting and waited on the Doorstep. Commend me to an old lady in Rochester who sought novel and successful Means of collecting her rent last week. ,6he was an old lady of ideas and a knowledge of human nature gleaned from a lifetime of experience with the world. She owned a House and lot in Rochester and the income from it was the substance upon which she depended for life s necessities. It was rather an ostentatious House and lot and the tenants were persons with a reputation to sustain although apparently embarrassed for ready Money. Two months rent was due and the agent Yas not Able to collect. The old lady said it was simple enough. She would collect it herself. Now she Wasny to a stylish nor an artistic old lady but she was sturdy and imperturbable and her proportions were ample and her spirit unfaltering. She rang the door Bell at an Early hour the other morning and inquired for the head of the family. The servant glowered at her and said he was not to be seen yet for two hours because the family had not yet risen. The Early caller was cheerful and said she d sit on the doorsteps and wait. Finally an audience was had with her tenant who put her off with smooth promises. A a in la just sit Here and wait till you can pay it a replied the righteous collector and she settled herself once More on the Doorstep took some knitting from her Basket and prepared to spend the Day. She made a quaint looking picture and All the neighbors wondered. When any one came within conversing distance and stare rudely at her she explained in a Friendly Way that she was waiting till the tenants paid their rent. She looked truthful and no one doubted her and her plan worked like a Charm. The rent was paid Long before Sundown and she ambled Home More than Ever convinced that nothing is press. One of the most novel ideas that have been advanced in sometime is the suggestion made by one John s. Brooks that on january 1, 1900, a new division of the year into thirteen months be instituted. This is not so preposterous As most people would be Likely to consider it at the first thought. In a letter which or. Brooks wrote to the a i a it / 1 new York Herald he says that if such a division were made the first twelve months would have just Twenty eight Days or four weeks each and the new month Twenty nine to make 305, and a thirty in leap year. After a few Days a Here would be no need to refer to calendars As the same Day of the week Yould have the same Date through the year of in the four years to come this change could lie adopted by All countries and january 1 Yvere say monday every monday would be the 1st, 8th, 15th, and 23d every tuesday the 2d,9th, 10th, and 23d, and so on throughout the year. The changes of the Moon would be on about the same dates through the year and Many calculations like interest dates of maturing notes easter sunday and Many other important dates would be implied. Tyr Brooks says in conclusion a the present generation would have to figure new dates for birthdays and All Legal holidays except new year would upon different dates. Would not the gain be More than the loss As that would be permanent and the objections imaginary or trifling i wonder that this has not been advocated before and yet i have not heard of it. I am sixty five years old but i can never Tell the Days in each month without repeating the usual verse that give learn in childhood. What excitement we could have Over naming the new month of would Call it or. Brooks certainly Jas no fear of the unlucky number. The advantages which he Points out Are worthy of consideration but it is not Likely that they will re Weiye express. Decoration Day will he observed at Black foot with refitting ceremonies Geo. H.
