- Invention has done much to lighten
the drudgery ota woman's life, and
within the remembrance of most of us
the change Is wonderful. Think ol
the spinning aud weaving and the
inconvenience that attended the dairy
work. Now the products of the dairy
are sold In milk, or the butter Is made
at the creamery.
In view of the great improvements
one would almost think there need
not be much "domestlo manage
ment." But the housewife of to-day
works Just as hard, If not harder, than
did those ot flf ty or one hundred years
ago. Our houses are larger and more
rooms are used. Once the kitchen
and sleeping rooms were used daily,
and the sitting room and parlor only
on state occasions. Now the parlor
Is used as much as the kitchen, and
we must strive not only to keep It
cluun but to make It attractive.
Once a garment would wear for
years before it was worn out, and It
was always In fashion. Now It must
be made over twice a year ( if It wears
as long ), for fashion must be observed
to some extent, and many believe that
we might as well be rut of the world
as out of the fashion.
The children of to-day make greater
demands on their parents than did
those of long ago. They only at
tended school twenty or twenty-0ve
weeks of the year, and when old
enough helped In the house or out ot
doors. Now children go to school
forty weeks, and parents must assist
To supply the wants of the children
and the necessary demands of home
requires a small fortune, which, un
fortunately, few farmers are blessed
Ith. The fact that the farmer s In
come Is so small, in these days, is one
reason why the duties of the furmer's
wife are so arduous. Bhe labors to give
the children all the advantages In her
power, taxing her mind and body to
devise " ways and means " In order
not to make too great a drain on the
husband's parket. It requires much
more work to do the cooking now, as
the style of living has changed very
much in our day. Our homes must
be mode attractive ; this must be done
lnrgely by woman's hand, and it Is
wonderful how much skill and taste
some women display In this. To make
home attractive for our children we
must be social and cheerful, and this
is sometimes hard for a tired house
keeper. We must not forget that
aocietv has demands on us. We must
entertain and mingle with the world,
and must attend the grange meetings
now and then.
To do all this try to systematize
your work ; plan for the morrow be
fore you retire at night; have every-
tmnir convenient aoout tuv uuuw,
and be well supplied with labor-saving
JL Valambl Hint.
It used to be said of a new dress
that the making will cost as much as
the material, but now it is even double
In amount. Most of the Boston dress
makers ask from twenty-five to thirty
dollars for making a street dress. A
woman of economic Intention recently
olanned to save by adding a new
waist to an old gown and spent days
in searching for the best terms of
making. The prices ranged from
fifteen dollars tor good work to six
dollars for an uncertainty of fit. The
economy of renewing a part of the
.lress at such a cost became doubtful.
This woman and many others might
profit by the successful experiment o
a Maine woman. She gave lessons In
dressmaking by which she taught her
pupils enough of the mysteries to oe
able to make thelrown dresses. For
about the. overage price of making
one, dress she drafted a perfectly fit

Thorn who look for tlio first time on
the wide clumsy snow-shoes that bang
crossed upon the wall of a young
bachelor's apartment, or lire exhibited
in some museum among other curious
things from the North, would regard
tbem as an awkward sort of shoe, and
a difficult If nut dangerous thing to
urn. The begluner is as 111 at ease as
a cat with paper shoes ou, and more
certain to come to grief. With the ab
ject humility that follows the first trial
comes a respect for the snnw-shoer of
only average ability, awe and d mi ra
tion for the expert who shuffles along
unoonscious of the great flat surfaces
tied to his feet.
In the northern part of the United
States, and in Canada, where It is said
the year consists of "eight months
winter and four months poor sled
ding," the snow-shoe is a necessity for
hunters, trappers, sod those who must
travel the uu broken snow. These men
begin as boys tramping about with
loDg narrow clapboards fastened to
their feet, setting wire nooses for the
little white rabbits that trsck the snow
ith their own broad feet. As they
grow older tliey get their first pair of
raw-hide snow-shoes, and with these
thev co beatinz about the country on
longer excursions with gun on shoulder
