HOUSEWIVES DAILY
ECONOMY CALENDARI
BY RANC1ES KAYawALf
Spend for the House.
Not long ago a letter truly full of
rood for thought came under the writer's
eye. It was -from a young wife who
complained that. althovIh her husband
loved her and was de-, ted to her. he
would not give her n I ney enough to
buy anything for their house. Even de
cent table linen was lacking, she said.
He thought that a growing bank account
ought to take the place of a well furnish
ed house, In her mind as it did in his.
There are two ways of spending money
for one's house: one is extravagant, the
other is economical. In - the best sense.
And the husband who thinks that a bank
account can take the place of sufficient
and attractive furnishings is mistaken.
Most women have to live most of their
time in 'their houses. For most women
do the bulk of their own household's
work. Therefore, tbey are entitled to
a oleasant place to work, a pleasant
place to entertain. The young house
keegter who does not even have enouhg
spending money for decent table linen
Is most decidedly under a disadvantage.
The wise housekeeper is the one who
makes a budget for household expenses.
This should be founded on experience and
on budgets of professional budget makers
-such as one can get hold of through
various woman's magazines and clubs.
The man of the house, too, should un
derstand the value of such a budget
and should agree to try one out for a
year. Of course, any given budget will
need slight variation according to any
given familv's wants.
With a budget as a basis, the house
keeper will know how much she can
afford to spend on each department of
housekeeping-wages for service, heat.
fuel, light, food, clothing. etc. And part
of the monev she spends will go for
equipment. This includes things bought
for the upkeep of the house. It is her
interesting task to apportion this given
sum into certain amounts for each room
in the house.
True economy consists in never lettin,:
the house get run down. Buy when .vou
can get good values, and then you will
never have to pay the price for quick
shopping. The woman who has a linen
closet always sufficiently stocked will
not. when two trained nurses come in
to take charge of an unexpected illness.
have to rush to the telephone to order
half a dozen sheets and some new towels
at whatever tprice the shopkeeper hap.
Pens t, be asking that day.

As I went up the brisk walk leading
to the house door on my way to visit
one of our mothers not long ago I passed
her little 4-year-old son stooping over
somethIng and crooning softly to him
elf. Hearing my footstep he looked Up
agerly and said:
"Oh, come se these little antics'
They're dragging a dreat, bid leaf home
and they can't hardly tarry it. Is It
or a cover for their little babies?'
I stooped down li side the little fel
low and together w- watched the strug
gle of the insects to convey the leaf to.
the little puie of sand that marked the I
entrance to their home. Once or twice
he gave it a gentle push with his fat
little forefinger over a particularly dif
flult passage
"Aren't the aunts funry people?" he.
uue.tioned as we atooped over the ant
hilt. Mother telled mne all about them.
They keep cows-little green bugs called
ap-ap-somnething-"
"Aphies?' I sugg'st'd.
"Yes, that's it, apides. and they get
milk for their littl" babies from them.
Do the bees keep cows, too?"
"What in the world are you two doing
down there?' the laughing voice of the
mother called to us from the veranda.
"I have been waiting to see if you were
coming In to see mre or intended your
isit for Harry out there on the walk."
Harry and I rose at that and he ran
efore me to tell his mother about the
aunts and the big leaf. As I came up to
them I said: "He has an astonishing
amount of information about the ants.
is it because he is just naturally Inter
ested in such things or have you tried
to cultivate a loe of natural history in
him?"
"I suppose 1 have iiultivated it." she
replied. "I do not believe children
ever take iAn interest in things un
less their attention is called that
way, do you.' At any rate, 1 know T
owe all my interest in nature studies
to my dear father, who was an en
thusiast on the subject himself. He
would take us on long walks and
drives with lini ad call us to look
it the birds and insects of all kinds
that lie could find. Naturally, when
this dear little boy came to ite. I
-nited him to know about such
things, too, and so he and I have ob
served all we could together. I think
it has a good influence on him in
teaching him not to be cruel to any of
Go's creatures, besides cultivating
powers of observation.'
I heartily agreed with her. Only a
short time before. I had seen two boys
playing with some of the beetles
nown as "tumble bugs," andI
topped to remonstrate with them
bout it. Each one had captured an
nfortunate bug and had tied a string
o a hind leg to use as a rein for
riving the two in a race-or rather
n pulling and jerking them about if
hey did not "race" as their tormentors
esired, It was wanton boyish cruelty.
f course, done with no thought of
he possible sufferings of the poor
nsects. but when I saw the other
small boy trying to help the ants
th theIr loaf of l,'af, I could not
elp but contrast the two kinds of
oys.
Don't you thinik. dear mothers, that
hIs is another responsibity added
o the nmounotain toad you already
ear, that you will want to assume
ttentIon to the hahits of insects and
irds will lead to such interest and
also such love for them that instead
f finding -amusenment in capturinag
pecimens merely to pit them against
ach other, or robbing the birds' nests
f the eggs for the pleasure solely
f destroying them, your boys will
earn kindness to every creature
hrough very curiosity about Its hab
its of life? The aunimnals and the peo
ie we love, you know, are those we
watch arid tend, and are interested In,
and T know no more civilizing in
luence upon the average small boy
hat the rousIng of his humanitarian
nstincts in this way.
There aro so many valuable books you
can obtain for your boy to read on this
ubject that it need take comparatively
ittle of your own personal attention to
interest him, once he has begtun to read
and observe for himself. Maeterlinck's
'Life of the flee'' is one of the most
ascInating nature hooks it baa evcr been
