Welfare," which was so interesting
mat mere were
for its publication. Lack of space
has prevented this until this issue
and it is annexed herewith in full:
I esteem it a very great privilege
indeed to have an opportunity of
speaking to so representative a body
of women as the members of the lion
day Club of Prescott. The Chairman
of this section, in asking me to talk
-an "Community Welfare," very kind
ly gave me permission to refer to any
or all of the many subjects embraced
under that head. To refer to them
-ill is manifestly impossible, and I
have naturally chosen those which ap
peal most strongly to me, as being of
supreme importance, not alone to all
communities, but more especially to
this community in which we live.
In the very first place, the term
"community welfare" is in itself sug
gestive, reminding us, as it does, that
there are many iaterests which are
common to us all. 1$ , Iras been truly
said that no man lives unto himself.
Each person is more or less dependent
on all the others in his community.
We sometimes speak of "the inde
pendence of Americans," but there is
no such a thing as personal independ
ence among a civilized people. The
only really independent American was

skulked through our Eastern forests

When the surroundings of his camp

bis home to another part of the coun
tr . When a member of his family
died the wickiup and its contents
were burned. The young boy was
early schooled in hunting by his fath
er, while the girl soon Iparned to be
come a bearer of burdens with her
mother. This was true independence.
Community welfare did not interest
The same was true to a lesser ex
Tent of the early settler along the
Vtlairfic coast. . The primitive fanner
went into the primeval forest to hew
out for himself a home. With his axe
he felled the giant trees and built
himself a log cabin. Among the
stumps he sowed his crops of wheat,

In the long winter ,

the brave pioneer lived out his days
xn sturdy independence, literally mon--ircli
of all he surveyed and acknowl
"dging no higher civil authority than
bis own strong right arm backed by
his trusty musket. This, too, ap
proached very near to complete inde
pendence. Community welfare was of
"little interest to them.
How differently are we situated to
Jay! We are dependent on the mer
chant for our flour, sugar, meal, vege
tables and other table supplies; ou
ttbe batcher for our meats; on the coal
dealer for our fuel and on the tailor,
haberdasher, dressmaker and milliner
for our clothing. In the building of
onr homes we are dependent on the
carpenter, mason, plumber and painter.
All these are in turn dependent on
'he railway to transport their sup-
piifls, and on the jobber, wholesaler,
raanntacturer and producer to furnish
them. For our water we are depend
eiji on the city; for our light, on the
electric power company. For our edu
cation wc are dependent on schools;
for protection, we depend on officers
af the law. From the cradle to the
grave wc so-called civilized men and
men are absolutely the most depend
ent Of all God's creatures.
It naturally follows that just inas
much as we arc dependent on one an
other, just in so much are we intcr
?ted in community welfare. Since
we are all dependent on the merchant
and the butcher for our food, our wel
fare as a community rests largely on
the kind of food supplied to us by
these business interests. Since we are
.all dependent on the schools for our
vdneation, it is a very vital matter to
our community that our schools should

are common to all or a large portion
f our people. The more advanced
-ind complicated becomes our civiliza
tion, the more are wc mutually de-J
pendent on one another, and the more
interested should wc become in mat
ters affecting community welfare.
That we may gam a broad, compre
nensive idea of the relative import
ance of different factors in the com-
mnnity, it might be well for us to
glance for a moment at the history!

Again, the same standard of meas
urement may be applied to all social
institutions. If an organization, such
as your Monday Club, serves to fos
ter and encourage the family tie and
the home life; if it tends to be, as
it were, an extension of the home, it
is a valuable asset to the community.

The question of the integrity of the
home is one which is of special inter
est to women, since she is the center
of all home life. If the home is the
foundation of the state, woman is the
chief corner stone of that foundation.
Without woman there can be no home;
without the home no great nation
can continue to fulfil its destiny. It
is very apparent, therefore, that in

No one will deny that there is a sad

The town is simply a collection of
homes, and he is a poor kind of citi-
zen who is not loyal to his own
town and proud of its aceoraplish-
ments, be they great or small. To
stimulate our loyalty let us glance
for a moment at a few of our most
valuable assets as a community, as-
sets which would stir the pride of
the most indifferent individual.
Qur most valuable civic asset is
our climate. A careful study of the
