Making Western Homes Out on the western desert, where by means of irrigation the United States Government is reclaiming mil lions of acres of arid land, many wo of culture and refinement are men making homes in the best sense of the word. Here we really live, says Constance Adams in The New Idea Woman's Magazine for July, and each day brings new and interesting ex periences, almost any one of which would be a thrilling adventure to the feminine relatives left in the east, for few of us are native born in this great land of promise where we have elected to set up our lares and pen j ates. Perhaps some of us, as we looked from the train windows, this desert, which was to be home, seemed like the sun-blistered, sand-blasted, fag end of nowhere, and there was a wist ful yearning for "the flesh pots of Egypt," that seemed then to be only attainable in New York and Chicago and Washington and Boston and other cities that have given us birth, there is much work to be done and time for vain regrets, and even be fore the temporary structure is com pleted that is to shelter us until wo can build a truly house, we realize that here in the west is the greatest of all blessings health, for ourselves ami our children, and we are glad we Rut no came. The air is fresh ami bracing or gen tle and caressing, but never enervat ing and oppressive. True, there are times when the wind blows hard and lifts the desert so l that "bloweth where it listeth," and perhaps the little shack is not well built and the gray dust settles everyhere. but it is so at the homes of all of our neigh bors and we know that before long we will have seeds planted and water turned on the thirsty land and with water and the wonderful desert sun that shines so many days in the year we can soon have vegetation and less dust. And the children, how they revel in the sunshine, the wonderful out-of-door-ness. the familiar inter course with the horses, cows and dogs thaï have heretofore filled them with terror !
