IS NECESSARYFOR WOMENON FARM MRS. PAUL CLAGSTONE OF IDAHO ADDRESSES INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS. HAPPINESS I S ASSURED COUNTRY CHURCH AND COUNTRY SCHOOL GREATEST FACTORS IN RURAL LIFE. Too Many Boys and Girls Leave the Farm Because They Can See Noth ing but Hard Work and Drudgery Ahead of Them.—By Making Farm Life Pleasant They Will Remain. COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Oct. 19.—One of the most necessary, yet most neglected and unappreciated phases of farm life, according to Mrs. Paul Clagstone, Idaho, who spoke be fore the International Congress of Farm Women on "Recreation in the Home and Community," is recreation for the farmer's family. "Recreation," she said, "is wrongfully considered a luxury in many. farm homes. A farm woman's life should not be all drudg ery, and the boys and girls should be given time for recreation. Too many boys and girls leave home because they see nothing but hard work ahead of them for the rest of their lives, while in the cities families of their own financial standing have comforts and amusements. The fact is that the country can furnish even more pleas ures than city life affords." She ad vocated the expenditure of a little money for a pony for the children, a few good magazines and farm papers for the family, and a phonograph to bring them in touch with the best music, or to liven the long winter evenings. A few good outdoor games for the boys, flowers for the farmer's wife, and a revival of the old art of making visits were recommended as aids to relaxation. "The country church and the coun try school are perhaps the greatest factors in the mental stimulus of the farm life, with the.Grange and the Parmer's Union a close second. Mrs. Clagstone gave a valuable suggestion, the practicability of which has been proven in her own locality. Five school districts, too difficult of access for cen tralization of schools, have engaged a teacher in domestic science and one in manual training, and each school is given one day in the week for instruc tion and pays one-fifth of the salary. This, Mrs. Clagstone affirms, will mean much in the betterment of country life, and should be taken up through out all country regions. In conclusion she said: "Every one who can hav-e children, a garden, a a .ee ^.r a A°^f/^ 0 WILLREPRESENT CITY OF MINOT MINOT, Oct. 19.—The Minot city commission has taken a hand in the Minot normal contest before the state supreme court.

No one but the judge knew at the opening of court at what time this ruling would be made, but its importance cannot be over-estimated in the opinion of legal men, who ha*e been following the proceedings.

(Bv Associated Press.) SHANGHAI, China, Oct. 19—Six packed steamers arrived here from Hankow today carrying refugees. The steamer E'elgravia was occupied ex clusively by foreign passengers who were given free accommodations at the direction of the consuls at Han kow. The ship was so crowded that many of the passengers slept on the floors of the hold. Most of the for eigners were Russians. Whole Valley in Hands of Rebels The refugees declared that the whole Yang Tze valley from Hankow to Shanghai is in the hands of the rebels with the possible exception of one or two of the largest cities to which the provincial officials have re tired. With their available troops, it has been insistently stated here that Kui Kiang, 150 miles below Han kow, is under revolutionary control. This is denied, however, by the for eign officials and by a representative of the Chinese customs service. Manchus are Massacred. Accounts of the revolutionary at tack on Wu Chang, as given by the refugees today emphasize particularly the masacre of Manchus in that city.

PEKING, Oct. 19\—The court's offi cial announcement this morning that telegraphic communication with Han kow had been interrupted since sun set last night caused consternation throughout the capital today. Wildest rumors of a reverse, and facts to support them, were available.

The government officials continue to pro fess the utmost optimism. They declare that a severance of telegraphic communication for a pe riod of only 12 or 18 hours over a line 67 miles long is no ground for apprehension. They insist that the 21,000 troops and 70 guns which have left Peking for Hankow and most of which are now en route would be suf ficient to swamp and revolutionary at" tack.
