Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 3, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta Young Toronto \Vido\v Tells of Her Struggle lo Make Home for Son. TOOK A STRONG WILL No One Wants to Look After a Child Whose Mother Goes to Business. WHEN 1 pce the Kivcn In tlie papers to articles on the Inisinoss woman, I feel confid!-nt that the writers are tack-llns the snl'Jcct from the outside.

But what are they In the balance with the life of a future citizen? Sacrifice Well Repaid IREMEXtBER well the night I lay awake most of the night, after an afternoon of showing my younij friend, son, where he was going to get off in the future. Three years ot learning in a school in which neglect was the, monitor had allowed the growth of.weeds that cbuUl not be'pullcd up like thistles, and were even less desirable. DurlnE>that visil, I made up my mind, to three things, first that my boy was to grow up so that he would please me. Second, that he would be able to please me in so far as he acted from principle. And third, that it was 'iny task, a task to be entered upon at once, with a strong faith, and willing heart, and unending patience, to Instill In him those principles. It has meant sacrifices. No one knows what I have given tip, that I might carry out my ideas, and achieve my Ideals. I feel that it would not be playing the game In .nny manner to tell of them. I counted the cost, and I have not yet asked for any discount when 1 came to pay. To-day, I am beginning to think that what I.counted as sacrifice was only making an exchange of things that weigh but very little in the great scheme of things. There is coming to me. day by day. a realization that 1 planned well that night, and that I have been rearing a good Canadian, a good citizen. In the scale .against this, a few dances, a tew Outings, a few silk gowns, and days and nights free fiom worry, but filled with v-'ker. ProfiUble at Hotel To my delight, he thought the Idea practicable. He advised me to have some,cards printed, stating my terins. These he agreed to have distributed among his guests. Two days after tho cards were placed In the hotel I received a telephone call saying that a family of four had suddenly been 'called home on account ot illness, and wished to engage me to pack their trunks and forward them. There were six huge trunks, and I spent the entire afternoon packlffl?'. When I received tlO for my work-you can imagine my joy. Orders came quickly after that, ani soon my mother and I took pleasant rooms In the hotel, where I could be more easily reached. I am businesslike, careful, and systematic In my work. In a note-book I write the contents as nearly as possible, and where each article is to be found. Jly prices vary according to the size of the trunks. For those under 34 inches my charge is $1, and for '^11 over that length ?2. I recommend this source "^t livelihood to any woman thrown upon her own resources without any busjnesa training.

Remarkable Gathering of People at the Parent Institution Every Summer. DISCUSS EVERYTHING Everybody Dresses and Acts According to Inclination Without Consciousness of Oddity. By FLORENCE WITH ROW, B.A. S th(i honored founder. Bishop A Vincent, emphasized,. "Chau-JTx. tauqua is a place, an idea, and a force," and, although still a camp meeting and a summer school, it is now vastly more, being a vital and energizing Institution with recognized university standards, 3,000 summer students, 150 instructors, 22 departments ;and 300 courses. Besides, there are'..3,000 associated Ghautau-quas in America and Europe, which formerly gathered ten million summer attendants; 'and, in' addition, thousands are readers ot its prescribed course, which pronounces that "educ�UoiuandS only with lite." The pai'firt institution is a city in the woods',"TO miles south of Buf-, fJlo, on a .20-mile lake in tlie Allegheny foothills; Its permanent summer population Is 20,000, with 50,000 transients." By lio-means is It all house.? ".ind oducafto'n buildings, for it has much rustic beauty in wooded retreats, shaded avenues and cool ravines. The old houses of 40 years ago are fast disappearing, being replaced by picturesque bungalows, attractive hotels, colonnaded administrative buildings, classic lecture halls', and airy club pavilions. Also quaintly timbered manual craft shops and art studios attest its up-to-date features. 1 The amphitheatre, once tlie largest In modern times, accommodates 8,000 persons and con-tairts a superb organ, the gift of Mr. Chester Masscy. Chautauqua's programs are all-embraclve, suiting the taste .i-id capacity of tho entire family,' from kindergarten tots to tottering granddads. Lectures, concerts, classes, movies, fireworks, sports, and even circuses are provided. Statesmen, preacher.!, travelers, authors, educators purvey various supplies  ot knowledge. * To describe tho recipients of this Intcllecliial diet would lie to treat the seven ages of man-or mostly woman, as she predoinlnates clashes as midget, maid, mother and grandmother. Hero she is no weaker sex, but, like the .distinguished Vincent family, is "Trre-prcssihle and invincible" and commences classes at 8 a.m., continuing ofttlmcK till f) p.m. Even the small boy is off to his "gym"^or craft shop by 8 a.m., for none are Immune from the Chautauqua bacilli and class going becomes a passion-a jnlUl lunacy In fact. We,, too, caught the manki and rushed to lectures every hour until we ran into both brain |-and body Indigestion and had to buy the popular "little digester" (a pellet, not a pamphlet). The devotional meetings are In-si'atlonal and characterized by unity ot worship. Picture an car-nest Bible study class ot two to three hundred, or a Vesper service under tho trees with eight hundred to a thousand voices repenting a beautiful litany, prepared for the hallowed sun-set hour; or Imagine the vast umphltheatro crowded at twilight evensong, or tho class vigil In tho shadowy hall In tho grove, lit only by flickering tripod lamps, where spiritual exaltation quickens the impulso of every listener and tl|D religious intluonoe of Chatauqua Is manliest. Unconicious Peculiarities To turn to lighter vein, Chautauqua ways are most unoon-vcnllonnl. 'Ei-eryono walks In tho road and hardly anyone wears a hat. Old people assumo colored spectacles, ntiddlo aged smoked eog-Blcs, courageous.spinsters green eye .nhadcs aiia youtiie atia ^aldens oor* tentous shell-rlmnied glasses. Every feminine carries _a notebook, the dally bulletin and a monstrous bag. An abnormally free and easy mnii-ner prevails' In tho Amphitheatre where the fan\lly darning and pca-shelllng is frequently brought, for meeting or no meeting, a few h.ibitues ."ire always fringed around the outer seats. A pronouftced and positive altruism characterizes tho Chautauquan and no one appears tlnnoycd IE some one pUanks a chair square in front of one. Qjiite the custom is it for a devoted couple,to carry cSnvas stools wliich tho husband plants one in front of tho other, taking the front, though backless one, himself. At first wo thought 'this ungallant, seeing the small wife hidden behind her ample spouse; however, careful watching revealed the wherefore of this procedure, which was to enable tho lady's dulcet whispers to reach tho manly ear without her needing to turn around, thus giving truth to the dictum, that women talk straight ahead. One chilly evening wo observed a corpulent gentleman recede ''to his wife's side in order to share her comfortable sKawl and not afar off another bravo one tied a pink scarf over his dratty bald pato to tho amusement ot his neighbors, but nowise to his chagrin, for Chautau-quans Indule Idiosyncraclcs without consciousness ot oddity. Fr.nll ladies sit In scarfs swathed with the grace of Vestals, or in fascinators worn with tho coquetry ot Spanish scn-oias. Old ladies arrive at morning cla.vses In boudoir cap;?, through which one may espy tho afternoon' crimps,"yet confined to tho curling pins. Venerable gcntlofneii slip-on skull caps and adjust' trumpets or attach them to the dozen or more platform batteries. The number of ancient and honorable dames in the oiglitlos , is a Chautauqtia phenomenon, ' among them being the abic twenty, years' president of the Woman's Club, .ngcd S3, rho club Interests � are. both iKima'n and humane, aud with upmost gravity docs it hold conferences on corns, I'uiilons tmA flat -feet,- or on' 1 ow to keep healthy under civilization. Likewiro sv.rii topics as, "In what;- niannoV of chair the ,body should repose," or "Should women fry chops," are seriously debated. Leat levity appear In our remar'ics.i be it said that .many lofty themes and war problems.are discussed and noble ,\vorks accomplished by the Woman's Club.
