Sta- vert. of Wluulitcg, occupied the chair, and In a few Introductory remarks introduced J. H. Worst, president of the North Dakota Agricultural Col- lego, Fargo, who spoko on "Educating tho Boy for the Farm." He said: "I have never before had the priv- ilege of addressing EO many women gathered together in such a convcn tlon. I think there is a typographical error In the name of my subject. It should be 'EUucating the Girl for the instead of the boy for the farm. I am glad that the women of Catmda and the United States have organized to 'bettor tho condition of farm wo- men. I am not eoing to speak eo much on education as on tho prin- ciples of success iu farm life. Three great essentials we must recognize are, food, clothes and house. These are" absolute essentials, and you will find when you have read, travelled and become too old to work hard, that that is the time your real happiness should commence, "Many a mother toils hard and then looks forward to, the future with dread, 1 liave thought it would be a good thing if we -could eliminate some of our ancient history, and algebra from our curriculums, and educate along more essential lines. We teach our children to be extravagant. That one cent a day for gum he should be save. He should be taught that present sacrifice is future happi- ness. "On'the farm it isn't necessary, 1 tell the boys among whom T work, that one become a millicnaiTe to be a useful citizen. But provision must be made for tho future, when work is more arduous. The farm will give a living and a sure competence for the future. If a boy can support a single co-w and put the gain from that cow! iin the banlr, and then ues the other: products of-the farm aright and Iceep it up: for twenty years, he will have about in' the savings hank. If we can teach 'boys that, they can have the modern comforts on the farm at as little expense as hi the city, the boys will stay on "the farm. "I say U> the girls, if you are unfor- tunate enough marry -a man with out ambition enough to provide with certainty for the future, then keep fifty chickens. With proper cjare you will be able to provide for yourself and your husband loo. We should take the initiative while we arc young. To make the child- principle of saving will-not make a miser. Until.'wo plant the rs there is no growth-anfl Xrhen grffyvth starts, we want to ,1 have hi Untied States hai'e; laboring We have oti '-the If t took tho motley of five.-'ch'eap cigars a-day and -invested' for: fifty ye'ars they could buy all the'farms in: the United States and pay cash -lor: tJi Canada" and the United .States' o much to their farm: subjects.- -Tbc power of a notion andXtti? stability oC a government have always -depend- ed: on the intelligence and content- ment of the Tural subjects. In order that the woman may be content on the farm, she must be taught to make it a most delightful home, with all the comforts found in any city home." -R. K. of Calgary, rendered a .vocal solo most acceptably. Australian Visitor "Hon. Neil Neilson, ot Australia, was Introduced to tlie audience and con- veyed bright and exceedingly interest- ing greetings from the farm women of Australia to the women assembled in the Congress. He struck a note of enthusiasm in the audience 'when he said there were no suffragettes in Australia. They do not need them as women vote there, Uray wore given the right, lo vote in simple Jus- tice. He mentioned one of the bene- ficial effects, namely, the organization into cluhs and societies to 'better tlie conditions of working women. He cited some instances bringing out the low cost of living in Australia. reason given was that the primary prr.ducer and primary consumer are brought closer together than In Can- ada or the United Slates. Miss Irm.i E. Mali news, superin- tendent Oklahoma Women's Insti- tutes, Oklahoma, City, then delivered aji excellent, address on "Farm Homes of Our Country." "So many of us know what tho homes said Miss Matthews, "but HO few of us know what they could be. So ninny know the weary routine and monotony of tbo farm home. There arc two avenues through which our homes aro improved, namely through the father and mother. Let us hope that this Congress, made for us, by us, may continue to Improve condi- tions among farm women. "How many farm homes do wo find thnt are B ad and gloomy? The wo- men in tho country are different from the city women. There Is no caste on the fn-rm. The homes are better for each little effort. There Is not such n doniand for extravagance am- ong (h-o farm women, but there Is just us much demand for the lovely nnd (he bountiful. We are striking nut hospitality In (he rush for dollars and cents. You sny wo haven't time, but we are Forced to to dlo. Tou can only' live so much, and It up to U8 to live It tbo best wu can. ''Cod created the beautiful and put it In us, but we let the grind of life blot it out. Tho broadest education Is that which makes you think most of your life, your friends and your com- munity. Tho less nagging we do the bigger 'we are. Then we aro more like good pals and are good comrades with our husbands. So often the mo- ther IB separate and she does the work but aho cannot converse with her daughters' and sons' guests. We want to alter such conditions un- til each -womatt is the biggest woman she can be. We need the libraries and magazines in the farm home, and we are getting them. I want you to bear in mind that civilization has come" as soon as the woman has brought refinement into the home.'1 K. McLean followed with a pleasing vccal number. Mrs. Holt, of San Francisco, extend- ed an Invitation lo the Panama Expo- sitiou She described some actual experiences hi farm life, which were optimistic anil cheery. .Miss Lila A. Uarkens, professor of Department of Home Science, Mon- tana State College of Agriculture, Bozemau, next spoke on ''The Woman Who Spends." She said: "At this time 'we hear much about the cost of living, but we hear very few suggestions about how to lower cost of living and still have the comforts enjoy. "Our trouble is .that the fundament- al principle of- economics have not been studied In Its relation to every- day life. Our schools are doing a great work. In Montana we. are mak. ing inquiries to find out the cost of living In different homes under differ- ent circumstaiicea. We have, broadly two departments of eco- nomics of 'living, namely production and: consumption, Woman's position and responsibility as a home-maker are greater today than ever before. "Woman does the greater percent- age of buying, and by her buying de- termines tbo value of child labor. The whole of home life centres the spending of the money. Money is spent for different things, fcod, cloth- ing, shelter, household furnishings, 'pleasure; education, etc. We must work for pure food laws and pure tex- tile laws. We must ask- what are clothes'producefl for, are the 'workers: paid aright, and do they work under sanitary conditions? .Mrs. J. T.
