C2 JEARTwfOMEpROBLEM5 J! n fry mos. EU2errM JT Thompson Dear Mrs. Thompson: My hus band died sbc years ago and left jne with four little children, one a baby of six months. I was left mthout means of any kind and I had to make ray own way. I had a chance to give my dear baby away and he has a wonderful home. Five years ago I married again. Now of course my children are get ting of good size and my husband makes my life very miserable growling about them. Thev do not do as he thinks they should and of course I cannot see their faults as he does. They have always had it hard and we can't get much them in the way of clothes. I have children by this hus band, one three years old and a riear baby seven months old. As 1 have had my six babies very close together and I do all my own work besides an extra washing I haven't strength to help in any other way. I know jur expenses are great, but I can't help it. Do you think my husband really cares for me? Sometimes he says very mean things, but afterward he says he is sorry. He is good to me at times and provides well. He tes. but there is quite a bit of jpense to that. He Gays if we did not have my three he would be better to me and we would livf bet ter. He loves his little ones, and ci coutse I love them all, but would so mo-n rather my "ttle fathrless children had a home whr.e they could get what they really need. 1 could not give them into an or- Jjban home. I do so want thein to lave some pleasure in their your ives. D you know cf any one who would like to have them? The are pretty, smart children. Every r-se speaks about them and they el', know quite a bit about house "tirork. One boy is fourteen and ens is twelve, and thera is a girl .of ten. Will you please do what yon can for m? I am so blue and down-hearted and mv life Is a wrick although mm mini aMmp- ;'.tji I am only thirty-one. I have sure ly had my share of sorrow and trouble. I really need an opera tion but am not able to doctor. MRS. E. B. Indeed you have had year share of trouble. First of all I would advise you to go to a good physi cian and get his advice. Tell him your story and I am sure he will recommend some medical school where you can have your operation free of charge except for hospital expenses. It may be that the ph sician yon consult will be willing to take your case for a minor charge, since you cannot afford to pay much. My dear woman, find a way to take care of yourself even if it means a cut in the food your family has to sat. For a "ew weeks they can get along n vey simcle fare if it nea your health in the end. When you are well ein. you will look at life in i different way and will find some way to manaee a few years longer until your oldest children can do much to be self-supporting. I would suggest that next sum mer you advertiso for a place on a farm for the two boys. Prob ably you could find a place for the little girl too. Then the children could earn a little money to he'p through the winter and you would be saved the expense of boarding them durinj, the summer. Your husband would also hav a vaca tion end the change might make him better natured for their re turn. I believe he loves you, but fails to show It at all times. There is no home I can sug-rt. Probably if you placed the children you wou'd find the new parents wanted them for the work they could do and then their lives would be mow miserable than ever. Us ually when ceoplo take children they want babies. You are ons of the many mo thers with a load almost too heavy for your shoulders to bear. Pra for courage and tiy to find hap piness in spite of it all.
