Lethbridge Monumental and Cut Stone Works B, Need!, Prop. ith Street 8, After having a daily tussle with an unruly cow until she learned that 1 was her mistress who would mir.i her anyway, and after struggling with a cultivator until I got tha furrows reasonably straight-what do you think I was first asked when I llnally rcachijd a farm? Well, the family wash. That was all!" There was more than a hint of dismay in the voice of a young girl whoso first plunge into tarraoretting had been a chilly one-via the wash-tub and soap-suds. Her ardour was somewhat dampened. Her audience agreed that it was pretty tough luck. One of tliem turned the sympathetic tide that had broken loose, however, by asking her questions about her employer's wife. What kind of a time did she have? Was she one of tliose comitry ladies of leisure who are sometimes depicted riding around in a'utomobiles or sitting on the verandah listening to victrolaa? "The only thing that induced me to stay, under the circumstances." pursued the farmerette, "was the sight of that poor woman toiling. Talk about women being beasts of burden in Europe. We have some species right here in Canada. Sho was up at daybreak, and she was on her feet Incessantly until dark. She couldn't have been more than forty years old, but she looked about sixty. I did not dream a woman could enduro so much and still keep going. That wash fairly killed me. It was the biggest day's work 1 over did. With her it was just thrown in as au aside. I don't wonder [hey asked me to do it. When 1 slopped being mad I didn't blame them." This question of helping-not the farmer, but the farmer's wife, is one of Ihe biggest confronting us now, and it is a question of to-morrow as much as of to-day. It has to b^- solved some how. Tint it never will be solved if the attitude that now prevails towards domestic work on the farm is nursed and fostered. It is aggravated at the present moment with the harvest coming on and labor scarce In all parts of the countr.v. We are familiar with the threadbare argumentB of the low status of domestic work, the grind of It, the inadequate recreation, the robbing the individual of her independence. Domestic work on the farm seems even more repugnant than in the city to moat girls, on account of the lack of equipment which they are likely to have to cope with in. a good many cases. Despite the fact that the good cook has been credited with having the knowledge of Medea, of Circe, of Helen and of the Queen of Siieba all oiled into one, the tact remains that In nine cases out of ten a girl will choose, shop, factory or ofllce before she will even consider domestic work. The question of helping the farmer's wife during tlie harvest, however, is not so much a matter of individual taste as a straight case of patriotism. No woman wanted war; no woman is partfculnrly keen about going oiit and bending double over potato rows in the hot sun;; no woman is anxious to strain her eyes over fine gauges in a munition factory-that is to say, un der normal conditions. But war changes everything, and scores of English women, who formerly held high-salaried positions, are now the Land Army, earning eighteen shillings a week nnd earning It with sncli vim that one canny Yorkshireman was heard to exclaim; "Yea, If only they'll take It easy they'll do." Dozens of similar stories winged across the Atlantic-vignettes of the wav-that sum up the very essence of the spirit of these women in England and France. But to return to the farmer and his wife.^Deep down in their hearts they do not envy city people. A superficial twinge may occasionally mar the calm though care.yporn exterior of the countrywoman when she compares hor strenuous lot with the easier lite enjoyed by her city sister. But then, as the farmer poet says: "Lot the mighty and groat Roll in aplSndor and'stale; ' I envy them not, I declare it. I eat my own lamb, My own ohickens and ham, I shear my own^sheop and I wear it. "I have lawns, I have bowers, I have fruits, I have flowers. My lark la my morning's charmer; So you jolly dogs now Here's God bless the plow-Long life and content to the farmer." This is more the song of peace than a martial retrain, hut the farm is a busier place now thtin it was four years ago. It Is more than a busy place. It la strenuous. Mw and women are sweating ua they toll indoors and out, for on their shouldbra rests the, heavy responsibility of prodiiclhg the food that is necessary at homo and abroad.

But wo arc not jus-tilled in feeling too reassured or in Blackening the reins that have been steadily tightening tor months past. Rigid economy and the elimination of waste in the consumption and handling of nil food stuffs must continue, according to a resolution passed at this conference. Production must he increased. There is the ever i)rcaont danger of harvest failure and the possible necessity tor large emergency drafts lo Europe. We must be ready for all contingencies, and must prepare to build up reserves in the meantime. The British harvest this year has fallen below expectations. The Canadian harvest is a moderate one. None of It must be wasted! The farmerettes are already at work in considerable j numbers. Now comes a call for tern ! porary help. It can be answered bettiirl in the farm kitchens than anywhere else. "My wife's the best farmerette I could find," declared a Quebec farmer to the writer the other day. "She can milk and churn, and knows the whole business from A to Z as well as I do. Slit's as good as a hired man any day. The trouble is she can't go outdoors on account of her two youngsters. They're only babies, and then .she has the cooking, the washing and the housework to attend to. It would bo all right if we could get a girl to help .her." That is just the problem. Twenty girls would volunleer to help the farmer outdoors to the one who would take his wife's place Indoors. A man who has studied the question from all angles and who has placed many girls on farms, declares that old-fashioned prejudice is at the root of the trouble. The city and country women need to be brought together more. He gives gi'eat credit to the Women's Institutes tor improving relations between the city and country women. It is the domestic servant stigma that upsets the apple-cart he declares. Once let girls go into the farm kitchens as war workers, and the occupation takes on an entirely different complexion. During the next five or six weeks the harvest will be at its height. The farmer's wife will bo working her head off trying to keep up with everything. She will have her own inulitnrlous duties In- work and lot his win help iilni? I'm sure she would he fUad iir the eliance." This is exactly v.lial -he did, with th-) result that thint;-; Inve been going along swimmingly oti ili.it farm ever since, and each woinan i.-i in the right groove.
