The Farmer Olrl. Evsrybody loves her and so do we, We cannot help It and don't care who knows It. When we speak of her, we mean the real old fashioned, rosy cheeked boa est, earnest farmer girl. Why do we love her? Because she lives on tbe farm and Is contented there. She Is not all the time talking about wbisking away to I bi swallowed up In some shop or fact ory. The farm Is good enough fur her Because she always has a helping hand for everybody. She knows how to make beds, wash dishes, sweep tbe floor, milk the cow, do any kind of chores that need doing when the men folks are busy and work presses. Because she can harness a horse and drive him anywhere. Because she is not above sewing a button on the shirt of a poor fellow who has broken down in the harvest Held. Because she can run a sewing machine or a reaper. Because she can play a hymn tune on a piano or. organ, or a jig on tbe bottom of a milk pall down at the barn when the men folks need a helping band. Because she Is ready to drive to town if a bolt or a sack of flour Is needed and everybody else busy. Be cause she loves all the stock from tbe calves and lambs up to the old horse. In short, because she Is doing more to make the world better than any body else on earth. We cannot help loving her. And we are not ashamed of It. Pendleton Observer. Wireless iTelegraphy.
