An address delivered by Mrs. Vir ginia C. Meredith before a Farmers' Institute: It is a great pleasure to attend the Farmers' Institute, and it was with the greatest sclfrcstraint that I re frained this morning from attending the meeting of the stock brcccTcrs. That is where my heart is, as I am a breeder of livestock, but nearer to my heart is the subject of the horn?, especially the farm home. The glory of the United States is its detached homo, a home wherein each family may pursue its own ideals. A new thought is finding lodgment in the minds of earnest people, a new thought about the home itself, and es pecially about the preparation or training that ought to be given tj women who organize and maintain homes. The home is the most ex pensive institution in existence, and we have a right to expect, a right to demand much of it before wc justify its existence. It would be far cheap er for people to live in communities of ioo or iooo, as they do in asylums, where one buyer of food, furniture and clothing could have the advantages of wholesale rates; where one cook could cook large quantities of food with one fire, where many rooms .could be heated from a central plant. This would be the cheap plan, but it is not the economical plan if wc have in view the rearing of fine men and use ful women. "The home exists," says Mrs. Richards, "for the protection of child life." And indeed nothing less than the opportunity it offers for the right development of the child (which is the hope of the race) will justify the expensive institution wc name home. Any discussion of the subject of home economics ,t, in my opin ion, rest upon four propositions, which in some degree define the sub ject: First. Home is a place and an op pcrtunity for the right development of the physical and spiritual natures. Socond The organization and main tenance of a home. is primarily and perpetually a personal enterprise; that is, its nature is such that homos can not be organized successfully by syn dicates. Third Housekeeping and home making arc so intimately rclatod that they can scarcely be separated, and together they form a business more important than, and probably as dif ficult as any business known to mod ern times. Fourth The one who would carry on this important and difficult busi ness deserves and should demand ade quate preparation, training and edu cation for this special business. It has been said that nita-sculinc economics uses men to the end of creating great wealth, while the femi nine economics uses wealth to tin end of creating great men. It is un doubtedly true that men earn money and women spend it. Who will s.iy which is the more difficult achieve ment from the economic standpoint? I use the word economic as meaning wise use. Men have been and arc be- . ing helped in every way possible, to cam the dollar. Science, invention, system, have been wisely used; tech nicial schools in medicine, engineer ing, bookkeeping, and everything clsi under the sun help the man to use his powers wisely in earning the dol lar. The value of the dollar which the man cams is determined by the intelligence of the woman who spends thrt dollar. What education or train ing is given the woman to enable her to spend the dollar wisely, economic ally? With the exception of a very, very small per cent that constitute the "savings," all the dollars direct' earned in these United Staix today arc spent in and for the homes of our country. One may say: "Yes, but women do not make the expenditure." Some thought will modify that asser tion. It is the woman's intelligence, her knowledge, taste, ambition, that largely determine the scale of living in her family; if she decides to have hot biscuit seven days in the weak, - the expenditure for flour, lard, baking powder, fuel, will represent a. sum quite different than if she Gleets to have yeast broad. Her knowladgo of bread-making will modify the cost f living, for it will mean porhaps 20 per '
