If the majority of young - women
could map out their futures, ninety
nine out of & hundred would lect to
be wives. This is especially " true of
the girls who are breadwinners. Not
that work in any .of its branches is
distasteful, or too laborious, but the
path of duty seldom runs parallel withV
teh path of love they imagine; there
fore their opportunities of meeting
marriageable men; are limited.
I canhot agree, with the girls who
hold , this view. I think each young
woman can shape her future to ascer
tain etxent. No matter how hard she
may have' to toil from daylight to
dusk, she has her evenings, at least
half of them, during the Week. '
THESE ARE HER
It - goep' without ' saying that . she is
tired; perhaps has household tasks to
perform; sewing, mending, freshening
up her own blouses, ft.t to trim, gloves
to doctor up, their- few rooms to tidy
Up, and a BundreA-and-One tasks to
attend .to that must be accomplished
before she can seek rest and forget
fuln ess in .tired nature's, sweet restor

Granted that these necessary duties
must be accomplished, I still maintain
that she should not give up all her
jreciou youth time to these tasks.
Life, health, happiness. In short, her
future prospects -demai that Bhe
should devote a portion of her even
ings to recreation. Every working
girl should make a solemn compact
with herself that she will devote two
evenings of her week to pleasure, vis
iting a girl friend who lives near, tak-
in ga healthful walk with women, com
panions on the brightly-lighted streets.
She is driving herself the benefit of
seeing and being seen.
Acquaintances meet where hills 'and
mountains don't. When least expected
she will be introduced to a worthy

Mr. Marshall takes the hird man
under his-wing in 321: "Every tfaremr
shall hire one more hired man than
his work requires," and in 32 4:
Sheds -shall be built over the fields
where hired men have- to work in

"No," said the woman who runs a

at it. You see, I make up a series of
menus for breakfast, dinner, etc., at
i he beginning of the season and then
they go on steadily till the end of it.

lay, the next time they have hash is

Nobody can tell what he's . going to
have qn any given day without work
ing it out with a pencil and paper, and
as nobody is likely to go to that trou

AFTER HOME BOARD
Harry Payne Says Help Has Been De
nied His Children Although
Called For By law.
Editor Norwalk Hour. '
Would ask our law makers and
people of Connecticut through the '
Norwalk Hour, why the executive ;
committee of the 1 Soldiers' Hospital
board should withhold estate aid from
my children. Under Section 2,870 of
the general statutes as amended by
chapter 18 public acts of' 1909, ap
proved May 8, 1913, my children were
clearly entitled to state aid.
Some time last January a state
ment was published in the Bridgeport
Farmer asking the Soldiers Hospital ;
board to explain some of their moves '
in the aid matter but nothing doing. :
The writer has asked the- board for a : 1
hearing have written them at dif-
ferent .times during the last ' year
while a member of the F"iteh Home, :
but there was nothing doing. Finally '
word was sentthat there 'was no ap- -propriation
for -children's aid. -
There was appropriated for the use ;
of the Hospital board for the two
years ending September 30, 1913:
General appropriation, approved
May 18, 1911, 1260,000. '
Received from all other sources,
Deficiency appropriation, approved
April 3, 1913, $3,500.
Returned .to. state treasurer, 1,-
984.61. ,- . .x
Here is the round up, $277,783.75.
Statement from the Soldiers' Hos- :
pital board that there " Is no appro- '
priation for children's aid but aid
was promised the mother under the
same law that 'aids the children and,
must be paid in the same way. How
did the board round up the cash to
pay for the mother's aid ? If there
was no appropriation why did the.
board return' to the state treasurer
$1,984.61, while children that the j
state has provided for went hungry? '
The law in regard to state aid .
reads: , . . . v . , ;
"Such amount shall be paid to the .
board by the comptroller in the same
way and upon the same form of re
quesition as the general bills of the
said Soldiers' Hospital board."
What was this appropriation of
$277,730.75 for, if not for the general
bills, including all state aid, aa the
law directs. " -
We notice a lot of discretion grant
ed to the Soldiers Hospital board un-
der the aid law. This is O. K.i but
when a man or a lot of men Working
for the state take a notion to let their
work run counter to the wish of the
people as ; clearly expressed through
our law makers then it is about time
to round up what is called discretion,
When, the Hospital hoard granted
my ' wife aid - they admitted the '
fact -that there was an appropriation
to coves payment for that aid;- they
at the same time admitted a fact that
my children were equally entitled to
aid under" 'the same law. ' When the
board advised the writer that, there
was no appropriation to aid children
he made what was evidently to them
a falsa statement.
The writer has -furnished evidence
that the board required to show the
real need of state aid;' It has beep,
made clear to the board that the
father is aid has been a cripple' for
almost two years; that a son is also a j
cripple and has beet helpless for five
or six years; that there was- twtf chil
dren under sixteen years; that there
was no income except a father's pen
sion of $16 a month,
