We often Felt an isolation and self pity often robbed self sacrifice. nobility now with the farthest regions of the Earth editing for our work we Rise to a sense of Crown dignity and order to respond with let it be our resolve to make ourselves fit for our. Wide usefulness. Not in a spirit of Drudgery but with . Our Utility gratitude for our sheltered surroundings and appreciation for the beauties of nature let us surround ourselves with serenity and peace. Let us further resolve to protect our Homes and families from the hysteria and frenzy of the world and give the i wholesome cheer Anco love. Let our inspiration reach from our own Homes to Wiir neighbors add bring helpfulness to others. With Wisdom and foresight May we a Ork for the Progress of our schools and the moral training of our Young people who will have burdens to Bear that will Call for Wise discipline. A it a a with still larger resolve let us become a part of our government which is for the Protection of our Homes and children. Then with boundless unselfishness let our sympathy and service reach out to the whole world and. With Mother nature try to combat the fever hate and horror that like a sickness have overcome our people. We the farm women face the new year As a vast army without banners without demonstration but with simple silent service that is irresistible in its strength and sincerity. Not in the eagerness of our own a Elf entered lives but As a great sisterhood having for each other a depth of understanding that comes from work in a common cause with a wealth of sympathy that comes from Mutual Joys and sorrows with a steadfastness of purpose that comes from years of patient toil we take up the duties that the new year will bring us As a privilege Safe in the thought a god s in his heaven the a mrs.

A Small. Central Hamlet consisting of Church school Post office station hotel and Model cottages but i did All this. Or i have also had some political problems a not confronting the average woman. At the outset seven of the Public offices Iri in my two townships were held by one Fain.

A the questions of Public highways a and Public schools were complicated and needed adjustment. I was in a limited monarchy. The Andi Justement was not easy often it was funny. At present however we Are living under. A it the Laws of the United states and the spirit of my new England ancestors is comforted and appeased. A i live four Miles from the Illinois state l a line and this Short distance prevents my / having a vote however i am consoled by persuading each voter on my place to con Rexf Sider my Choice of a local ticket. Never v i the less to pay a considerable proportion of a / the taxes and not have a voice in electing a Road supervisor is ironical.

This condition in my District has caused Many ranchers to sow Fertile lands to grass and to increase the output of live Stock rather than to till the soil. Ultimately a decrease in Grain crops will materially contribute to the High Cost of living and the Labouring class will be and generally is the first to complain altho not easy to convince of the cause. Raising pure bred hogs is pleasing and profitable. I am ambitious to improve to expand to increase the output but am at a loss to find qualified men to do the work. I belong to two menus organizations a cattle and a Swine organization. All women who Are engaged in farming As a profession should belong to the associations in which they Are interested be Grain poultry or live Stock. They should attend the meetings and conventions and forget sex. You have the Sam problems to solve As men Farmers arid your difficulties Are the same As theirs therefore mingle with them As often As possible. It will Only be a matter of a Short time before women will unite with men in All farm discussions As they Are doing in other affairs to Day. A new Era has Arisen since women were classed with Quot idiots and children.�?�. Busi Ness Success knows no sex and it depends on the woman herself if she is willing to take advantage of her Opportunity. Thousands have already done so but the Field for agricultural Endeavor is so extensive and made so much More important by the existing War conditions that recruits Are needed. The prices for farm products never More alluring should encourage serious minded women to a do their bit along these lines
