GRANDMA DID IT HERSELF
New York city is in ne,ed of 100 good household servants or
"hired girls." The troubles of the housewife are endless. The city
J has an official who .tries to arrange difficulties'bet.ween the employer
and her help, tut he is simply swamped in tribulation.
He says the trouble is partly due to high steamship fares that
keep women from coming in sufficientxnumbers and partly due to
the treatment the girls 'receive in many homes. But the greatest
difficulty lies in the fact that the "hired girl is assumed to have no
social instincts and hence is given no -chance to gratify them and
the nature of her work is so absolutely menial that it. does not fit
with the American idea."
The modern woman has many advantages, but in one respect
our grandmothers had her "beaten to a frazzle." They thought it a
fine, dignified thing to do their own work, with the aid of proud and
willing daughters. But we have "progressed" a long way from our
dean old grandmothers.
