Housework as Recreation. How many women look upon housework as a recreation and a pleasure? In the May Delinea tor Jt)r. W, R. C. Latsou upholds this contention, with somerenson on the principle “Whatever is done as it it were hardship be comes such; whatever is done ar tistically, on the other hand, is a delight,” adding “When house work is regarded as a 'means of training instead of aB a toilsome routine, then each trivial act be comes full of interest and is done easily, quickly and in truth artis tically.” “1 have 6een women,” he continues, “strong, handsome, active and intelligent, who dur ing a lew years of housework have become bent and rigid, sal low and wrinkled, ugly and hope less, prematurely old. On the other hand I know of cases where through the proper use of house work as an exercise and a recre ation, as a method of training mind and body, there ha3 oc nnrro/l u ntnef romorl/oKlo i n crease in health, strength, weight, ease and grace ot movement.” The pictures accompanying the 'article illustrate the proper meth ods of performing household du ties and are suggestive in a high degree.

C. Matthews, in Loudon County, Va., and thought proba bly an'account thereof might prove of interest to your readers. I left Meridian on the 10th of December, in company with lion. Adam M. Byrd and his family, who were on their way to Wash ington. I will always appreciate their kindness to me on this trip. Mrs. Mary Byrd was a Miss Gul ly, a member of one of the oldest and most respected families in Kemper, and one which is noted for making everybody feel pleas ant and at home; she being a grand daughter of old “Uncle’’ Phil Gully, could not be other wise than kind. • Arriving at Washington the morning of December 12th, I took the train for Leesburg, Va., the old historic town that I have heard my father and mother speak so much about, where the battle of Ball’s Blufl was fought —in which my father participated My cousin Charlie Matthews, whom 1 had never seen, met me at the train, helped me into a sleigh (the first I had ever seen), and we (Trove to his home, a dis tance of ten miles, which we made in about an hour. It was a very cold day, but I didn't sutler from polrl in the least: I enioved the ride, and the ringing ot sleigh bells, I tound my uncle’s family to be a very tine family, and such pleasant people. It was a source of pleasure to me to visit the home, and the same house, that my mother was reared in; and tosee the old mill that my grand father used to run fifty to sixty years ago—and it is still in use. And so much pleasure to me to meet with my mother’s old friends, whom she knew when a school girl; and to see the school building where she spent so many hours. I spent several days at the home ot Mr. John Cochran, at Land Mark, Va. lie is seventy eight years ot age, and I listened with interest while he told of his and my mother’s childhood days. And little did I think that I would ever walk the soil that my father trod duriug the war. I went to the ground where my father’s regiment (the 13th Miss ) had camped, and I also visited the grounds near Oatland where the 18th Mississippi regiment had camped. I was in the Benton Institute, which is near my un cle’s, and which was used as an hospital duriug the war. I had the pleasure of visiting the old mansion of President Monroe. It is owned now by Senator Henry Fairfax, a son of the Gen. Fairfax who was Gen. Longstreet’s Adjt. General dur ing the civil war. The home is beautiful. The place is well kept, and the house is open for sight seers. I also saw the burial vaults of Mrs. Monroe and her daugh ter, whose remains were moved to mcnmona two years ago. j.l would seem that Senator Fairfax spends a great deal of time and money in keeping up the place, and is constantly making im provements. The tenement and out houses resemble a small town The farm is a large one, and is comparatively level. It is used principally now for a stock farm. They keep no stock but the best breeds. In passing through the farm I saw, I suppose, two hun dred or more blooded horses. I suppose that they had herds of the different breeds of blooded cattle. I was st Aldie a number of times, a small town I have heard my father and mother speak of quite often, and saw the building where my brother. Dr. J. E. Tins ley, attended school. I also saw the battlefield where Gen. Stewart decoyed Gen. Pleasanton and his forces into a lane at the cross roads (one mile from my uncle’s), ambushed and annihilated them. I also visited Middleburg and the cemetery in which my Grand mother Matthews and other rela tives rest. Middleburg is one of the ancient towns of Loudon County. Cousin Belle Matthews and I tmaiif thpaa ,17anL-a f.qnfllDllpt'. and visited tho homes ot the Ishes, Tiftanys, Shacklefords, El gins and Cochrans, all of whom I found well equipped for enter taining every persou royally.— They seemed to enjoy our pres ence, and I assure you I never A Tried and True Friend. One Minute Cough Cure con tains not an atom of any harm less drug, and it has been curing coughs, colds, croup and whoop ing cough so*long that it has proven itself to be a tried and true friend to the many who use it. Mrs. Gertrude E. Fenner, Marion, Ind., says: “Coughing pnd straining so weakened me that I run down in weight from 148 to 92 pounds. After tryiug a number of remedies to no avail, One Minute Cough Cure entirely Bpent three weeks more pleasant ly. And nothing was more en joyable than the sleigh rides, and the ready wit of our drivers. All the young men of the neighbor hood were extremely nice to us. I visited eeveral homes while in Virginia, and was never treat ed more hospitably in my life, and I formed the acquaintance of so many who will always oc cupy a warm place in my heart. I met a great many distant rela tives who were excellent people, and ouly hope to be always re membered kindly by them. And I hope sometime to have the op portunity of being with them again. We returned to my uncle’s on Saturday, and I found a note trora Mrs. Byrd awaiting in e. She invited m e to attend the presidential inauguration and to accompany them back to Mississ iippi. So my uncle and Cousin Belle accompanied me to Lees burg, where I boarded the train for Washington. I attended the inauguration, and through the kindness of Con gressman and Mrs Byrd, I had a most excellent time. I had the pleasure ot meeting most of our Congressmen and Senators, and they were all nice and pleasant tome—I being a Mississippian. I was shown through the capitol, the white house, the library, and ! >>ll f moof iniriArtont Kml/llll IfC I found the weather much cold er in Virginia than I have been accustomed to, but did not suffer in the least from it and had per fect health. I hardly saw the soil, it being covered with snow all the time. I went theie the 12th of December and found a heavy snow, and left there in al most a snow storm. The prettiest country and seen ery I ever saw lies between the Blue Ridge and Bull Run Moun tains. Having so much snow, sleigh ing was the feature of the day, and I think I shall never forget the sound of sleigh bells. Marie Tinsley. March 8th, 1905.
