WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14, 1886.
Under this heading there appeared
in a late number of the Evening
Bulletin rery interesting letter.
It purported to come from a lady
who has herself solved the problem
of reducing household expenditure
to a minimum, and gave the memo
randum of the cost of a week's pro
vision and fuel for two persons, the
total represented by the very small
sum of 92.50.
I had the curiosity to take out an
old account book kept in San Fran
cisco 12 years ago, and to compaic
its figures with those above, and
although the expenditure there re
corded greatly exceeded hcis, I felt
that I had no reason to be ashamed.
The cost of many article of food has
greatly diminished within these
years, although even at that time in
San Francisco one could live more
cheaply than In any Eastern city.
As it may interest other women to
sec the details of this economical
housekeeper, I will copy from her
Cracked wheat, rice, etc
The two most puzzling items in
the list are meat and fuel. In re
gard to the former she explains that
Hhe purchased her supply in the
great markets below Montgomery
street, where, of course, the charges
arc less than in the small retail
shops. But, after all, it remains a
uiystery how she can have the meat
on tho table twice a day, without
exceeding the outlay of 8 1 a week.
I find in my list tho cost of fuel for
one month to be 3.95, double the
amount she gives ; but there are no
little children in her house as there
were in mine, making a lire neces
sary at times when older persons do
not need it. Lest any one inexperi
enced in such matters should accept
Iter figures as representing the en
tire cost (rent excepted) for the
household expenses of a man and
liis wife, it is as well to say that
there arc somo necessary items not
included. Salt and pepper, soap
and matches, kerosene oil and
candles I find in my list; and I
must confess that the tea and coffee
and the butter which I counted as
necessaries served to increase my
It does one good sometimes to
see what arc the self-denials of other
people and to measure them with
our own. There is undoubtedly a
great pleasure to a conscientious
woman, in so regulating her expendi
tures as to keep within tho bounds
of her income, however small. But
when she does this week after week
and month after month, there is no
denying the fact that the effort
grows wearing. The constant count
ing of the cost, the ever-repeated
struggle to save every cent, exhaust
the energies far more than twice as
much physical work with less anxiety
We country housekeepers may
well realize that the lines have
fallen to us in pleasant places when
we read such facts as these. Fuel
that costs us nothing beyond the
labor of cutting, milk and butter,
eggs and fowls, the game the boys
delight to bring in, all ready to our
hand, and to be used without the
dtead of exceeding our income.
Only one who has tried both modes
of living can thoroughly understand
the relief and tho rest there is in
Poverty in the city and poverty
in the country are two different
things, and though we may talk of
hard times, and feel that wo are
obliged to deny ourselves in many
ways, yet it is a very atmosphere of
abundance we are living in when
compared with that which surrounds
many of our sisters in the city.
Sympathy for them and content
ment with our own lot seem to bo
the lessons taught us by such
glimpses into the domestic details of
an economical housekeeper. The

I. Because of its Safety.
Its surplus Is larger than that of any
other assuranco company.
II. Booauso of its Promptness.
Of 1,043 death claims paid In 1885,
nearly one-half were paid the very day
proofs were received; while of tho re
inalnder, tho majority were paid within
the following three days. No other
company can riiow such a record.
III. Beoauso of its Liberality and
All policies nro incontkstablk after
threo years. All Incontestable policies
aro payable Immediately upon receipt
of proofs of death. Tho Society's
policy contiact is clear and simple, and
llbeial In Its conditions. Its Non-for-fcltlngTontlno
affords all the ultimate benefits of tho
full Tontine, nnd has during its earlier
years the surrcntler value and other
material advantages of ordinary life
No other company Is paying on Its
policies, as largo profits as aro shown
under the Equltnblo's matured Tontlno
policies with flftecn-ycar periods. Per
sons desliing assuranco may obtain
estimates of tho probable results of
similar politics, and of policies with
twenty.year teims, which aie expected
to show even larger protlts.
