Under the above 'title r shall write
occasionally of interesting experiments
in home efficiency which I am sure will
be of interest to the practical house
keeper. These are being worked out
and tested by practical persons in our
country today. We want to" know what
they mean by the "new housekeeping"
and whether these experiments are of
any value to us when tried. "-. '
In a small suburb near New York
lives Mrs. Patterson, who recently was
elected president of the Federated
clubs of her state. She began the
dutiC3 of her office first by conquering
the problems of her own .home.
This Is what she says: "Under my
existing arrangement of home obliga
tions it seemed Impossible for me to
crowd in another duty.. I -had either
to engage more servants or find some
other way out of the difficulty. . Addi
tional servants meant more time in
training them to better , method of
work and a double expense to the
home. 80 I began a systematic stock
taking of those responsibilities which
were already overbalancing my ener
gies and resources.
"I came to the conclusion that ab
solute self-independence was as nec
essary to me as the manager of my
home as It was to any other manager
In any other position of trust This
was the goal towards which .all my
energies must be directed, and for
this end my success was dependent
on two factors. . The first was the re

TfM reader can see readily that airs.
Patterson very quickly recognized how
practically impossible it was to raise
housework to its true position of dig
nity under our present help system,
for which we have no Uidard in
this country.' This' bfcJ!L true, wa
must work along the line that , will

goes to one's office. This can only be
termed for years "drudgery," or hard,
unpleasant methods ot doing certain
things, and the. long hours and con
finement such, methods necessitate.
In her experiments Mrs. Patterson
adds further: "Cheap and untrained
labor is the prominent cause for cling
ing to such crude instruments at the
scrubbing brush, the washboard, t!e
ill-adapted wqod and coal atove and
the dark cellar cold storage. Men in
their industries have progressed enor

world the home they must first
prove themselves domestically Inde
pendent and not weaklings, living un
der the fear ot the cock's giving notice
of the inability to make both ends
With 'this in mind . Mrs. Patterson
resolved from the first on an extensive
use of , labor-saving appliances, esjw
cially electrical, and an application
every day of the new principle of bus
iness efficiency In the home. After
thorough investigation she found in
this country and England thousands
of patents for labor-saving devices.
Some of them were excellent A great
many of them of no use at all. Halt ot
them she found expensive and useless,
and the other half just what women
would want and could use to bring
their home and the work connected
with it up to tbe highest efficiency.
