GARLAND @UGGY COMPANY St. Paul, Minn. writing advertisers EAR Alice: I greatly enjoy your letters, and although I do not always answer them one by one it is not from lack of appreciation. We always have plenty of work to do out here on the farm. In fact we have so much work that we have to cut down on thinking. I wish I could sit down and write you about things as they seem to me, but right now I should be on my way to the creamery. We have cream day three times a week, and I gener ally have to take one horse and haul the cream to town. Town, did I say? Well, no not a town as you think of it, but the store and garage and creamery and elevator. When I got your letter telling what a hardship it is to have to shop in three stores before you buy your suit—Alice, I wished for a few- minutes that I had to undergo that hardship. Now, don't misunderstand me. I am sure that they multiply good things in the cities and waste resources, time, energy and everything, while in the country these good things are lacking. That is, as you suggest, the bad part of the sys tem, and I fully agree with you that it ought to be changed. MARGARET LONGS FOR CITY STORES But, Alice, that realization is just In my head. I really would enjoy the necessity of going through three big city department stores and picking out the things I need. You know out here in the country nothing seems pleasant er to us than the chance to go to the city and see the fine things we would like to buy for ourselves and our chil dren, even when we know we can't buy very many of them. Comparing the clepartment stores with the country stores that we have to patronize, their brilliance and endless profusion of things make the home store seem un interesting. And yet it is no fault of the local merchant. He keeps up his stock of goods wonderfully well for the patronage he gets. He doesn't waste any money on decorations and he's not getting rich, but he does give us a chance to buy most of the things we need. When I compare prices of similar articles In the city stores with prices I have to pay out here I feel like patting the local merchant on the back for his generosity. It's a fact Alice, that we can buy many articles right here at home lots cheaper than city people can buy them—and that emphasizes a point in your letter. Perhaps the higher cost of some arti cles in the city is because of the waste ful methods you spoke of. Where they have three or four complete stores with complete business organizations, forces of clerks and all and every one making its profits, it must be a.bigger drain on the people who buy than if they were condensed into one. I suppose if MOTHER'S SUNDAY TASK The "funnies" take the place of the children's old time story book, and their in terest in them is just as absorbing. PAUE EIGHT Margaret Replies to Alice Letters Giving Country Woman's Viewpoint cities would cut out duplication and make everything available under one roof, that would lower prices and peo ple who get tired running from one store to another (it doesn't seem to me ever would) could shop more effi ciently. Just now I'm thinking of Christmas shopping and Christmas money. We always do what we can to make It a happy time for the children. I'm to get the cream check the first week in December. That means the check for three deliveries of cream, and that will help make out my Christmas money.' And that reminds me—did you notice that the Nonpartisan Leader has start ed, a Christmas prize contest for farm women? I'm going to get part of that prize money too for my Christmas ex penses. The farm women are to answer the question, "What does" the Nonpartisan league mean to you?" What the women say will surely bo "interesting reading" for the next few weeks. Are you eligible to compete as a farm woman? Well, I am and I cer tainly am going to tell them what the League means to me! For one thing it has meant two or three good old rousing picnics where we farmer folks got together and found out that we were all in the same boat You know what country picnics are— getting up early doing all the chores, T'~ The Prize Contest The Leader is getting a tremendous response in its farm women's prize-letter contest. Although announced only & week ago/scores of farm women- have already entered letters. Arfew good ones have been received, but not so many that the field is not still a wide-open one, with every chance for women who have not yet entered the contest to win one of the Christmas-present prizes. The conditions are these: The subject is, "What does the Nonpartisan League mean to you?" No letter of over 500 words on this subject will be considered, and the prizes perhaps will go to writers of shorter letters. Any farfa woman may enter the contest. Letters must be in the hands of the Woman's Page editor on or before Thursday, December 13. The prizes are: $10 for the best letter, $7.50 for the next best $5 for the third best $3 for the fourth and $1 each will be paid for an unlimited number of good letters which do not get any of the four first prizes, but which are worthy of printing in the Leader. The prizes will be sent winners in time for Christmas. Nobody connected with the Leader or related to anybody connected with the Leader is eligible. The woman's editor and the entire Leader staff will be the judges. Letters must be plain ly written, on one side of the paper, and we can not undertake to correspond with anybody about the contest or return letters not awarded prizes. Win fame and some Christmas money by getting into the contest at once. We will try to announce the winners in the December 20 issue of the Leader. feeding the chickens, making sure that none of the calves could get to the cows while we were gone, pouring out two or three dishes of water so the chickens wouldn't dry up while we were away—and then getting home late at night with the rest of the day's work to do. But say, we certainly were glad to do it. We never missed one such chance. Yes, all in the same boat and no one to-row the boat but ourselves. We women are hit even a little harder than the men. They think their, ^problems are bigger because they are connected with "business," but they"axen't a bit more important. Now we are going to get a chance to tell. something about it, and what the League means by way of helping us. .. -i .• i. MRS. BROWN ENTERS WOMEN'S CONTEST What would you think of a guessing contest as a feature of some farmer's club meeting or a Red Cross party, and give local prizes for the best answer to the question? I've a notion to get up something of that kind myself and then grab all the best ideas and work them into my letter. If there were 20 women guests present there would be 20 different answers to "What does the League mean to me?" and they surely would contain some good ideas. I also have some ideas of my own. But I am going to keep them to myself for I don't want anyone to win that Christmas money away from me by using my own answer. Mrs. Brown came in yesterday with a copy, of the paper saying she was going to write an answer to the question arid that hep letter would read something like this: "What d.oes the Nonpartisan league mean to me? "It means my husband has traveled around the township 10 times as much as he ever did before (organizing and helping the organizer) and has left me to get the chores done with the help of Fred and Mary. "It means that Fred has done almost nothing at the chores because he has been fixing up a debate on the merits of 'public versus profiteer ownership.' "It means Mary won't budge- from the time she gets the Leader out of the mail box until she has read all the big type, and the funny column and studied out all the cartoons. "It means the substitution of 'let Ma do it' in our household." Now Mrs. Brown was. foolish to let me in on her secret, because maybe I'll decide to use some of her ideas but laying all joking aside, the women ot this township are taking an Interest, and the letters they are going to write will make a book worth reading. Fred, has actually stopped work on that debate and" brought old Dan and the buggy around to the front gate with the cream can, in front of the seat, and so now you may imagine me driving off five miles to town—to earn part of niy Christmas money. -"i- u- Jo* ii SV-t '•'-VrA' MARGARET.
