AFTON, VA., October 7.-1 really do
try hard to think
" Who l*WSSpa S ro?^m as for Thy laws
* Makes that ami tho action fine,"
but somehow I doubt if George Herbert
ever swept a room, and I am ?ure he
never cooked. All this is apropos ef a
mournful letter before me which begins:
"I lead a very monotonous existence; am
little more than a household dru.lge. Pov
erty makes farm life very unlike that of
the old plantation," with many othor
dirg'3 in the same key.
The writer is one of the many women
WllO can say with MtSS Hroughton's he
roine: "Thi3 is an up-py and down-y
world." Being married, she is not afraid
to air her happier recollections from that
r, in,te period-commonly known as "befo"
flS xvah." Then In the South only "po'
white folks" did their own house-work,
and the household of a Wealthy planter,
with Its overstock of servants, was, ac
cording to Thackeray, "suggestive of a
li?ht carriag.' drawn by a team of ele
phants"?bl.uk at that. I know that
Southern men -reconstructed editors, poli
t? Uns, et als.?will have it that this new
state of affairs la better than the old, but
no more than did the dear old poet quoted
above do they ever BWOSg rooms or cook
meals?especially the editors. Howcv? r,
not to tune a regular Jeremiad, this over
work ?if women whom farmers have
SOWed themselves to cherish Is really no
new tiling, in ol?l New Kngland the life
of a farmers wit- was one of Incessant
toil. The se? ond w ife walked in the first
rlfe'a footsteps, and the third wife sang
S requiem to her predecessors. This is
-tati.-ti-.il. at least in Vermont, where the
reeky soil and the working wife gave out
bl r until It tang IM longer an agri
cultural State. It may ?v-r be that from
this cause the first "sir??tig-mlnded tc-.
m a!-" evolved, and this thought draws**/
from my beert an indulgence I have not
bean wont to fe,-i for tip ap?eles
ALL WORK; NO JOY.
Luna-y r.-p?>i-ts tell us that It 1? these
OVSlhurdened women who crowd the In?
in- aaylums, the reason being that for
' lonf a psriod it has been a!l Work
and no joy with them. I guess It xva i
