The home Is the greatest contribu

hearthstone Is her throne. Our so
cial structure Is built around her, and
eoclal righteousness Is In her charge.
Her beautiful life lights the skies of
hope and her refinement is the charm
of twentieth century civilization. Her
graces and her power are the cumu
of generations of
queenly conquest, and her crown of
exalted womanhood Is jeweled with
the wisdom of saintly mothers. She
has been a great factor in the glory
o f our country, and her noble achieve
ments should not be marred or her
hallowed influence blighted by the
coarser duties of citizenship. Am eri
can chivalry should never permit her
to bear the burdens of defending and
maintaining government, but should
preserve her unsullied from the allied
Influences o f politics, and protect her
from the weighty responsibilities of
the sordid affairs of life that will
crush her Ideals and lower her stand

Is our inspiration, she Is the guardian
of our domestic welfare and a guide

T o hold our young people on the
farm we must make farm life more
attractive as well as the business of
farming more remunerative.

properly equipped for nourishing and
