R. H, Kemp Lbr, Co,
RS. SIDEWINDER made a
sensible talk at our club meet-
ing yesterday," explained Mrs. James-
worthy. "She said there are many
disagreeable tasks which might be
made easy and pleasant if women
at them. Things
that are tedious
when one does
them alone, are
done by a crowd.
She pointed out
that the dande-
lions are becom-
ing a terrible
pest, ruining most
of the lawns In
towns, and sug-
gested that the
women hold dan-
I can imagine the rest," said Janies-
worthy. "You don't ueed to hand out
the sickening d. ihIIs. a kull}1 „f old
beldames will come to our place, for
instance and pull about live cents'
worth of dandelions and then sit and
have a photographer make u large pic
Mire of them; after whicb they'll eat
two dollars and eighty cents' worth ot
ice cream, and a lot of sponge cake
and anything you happen to have in
the refrigerator. One of the beldames
will be appointed a committee to write j
up the affair for the newspapers, and '
Mrs. Sidewinder will see that she gets
most of the glory us the originator of
the scheme, and next spring her hus-
band will be running for alderman on
the strength of It
"Nowadays the women never get
down to brass tacks Hnd do real work.
They iuust make a society function out
of every little chore they iio.. They
won't carry a dead cat out of the front
yard unless there's a photographer on
hand to make a group picture of It.
If work can be reorganized so It looks
like a game they will be Industrious
enough, otherwise they strike and send
communication# tu tlio iiovv.^fiapers ox-
plaining that no woman should permit
herself to he a drudge.
"One able-bodied man will destroy
more dandelions in half a day than 18
women will in three weeks. The man |
takes off his coat and gets down on his
marrowbones and pulls dandelions. The ■
18 women lean against trees and fan I
themselves with Japanese fans, and
try ti) look like so many Mary Ander-
sons', and wish there was somebody
around to set them to musih
"Women are becoming more and
more an expensive luxury since they
organized themselves into dubs. i have
nothing to say against the club idea in
Itself, Mrs. James worthy. 1 want to
see (lie females have as good a time
as they can, within reasonable limits.
The men belong to clubs and lodges,
too, but-they have bulls in which to
hold their meetings.
"The womeu wouldn't enjoy holding
a meeting in a hull. They have to as-
semble in the home of one of their suf-
fering sisters, so they can size up the
furniture and fittings, and be able to j
say, when they go away, that they j
never saw such execrable taste. And !
the suffering sister sees that her home i
is n frost, and site makes up her mind '•
ti" give her heart-sick husband no rest
until lie has chartered a string of
painters und paper-hangers, decorators
"But this isn't the worst,of it. The
suffering sister who entertains the club
Is expected to set up refreshments, and
she teeis it her duty, as a good sport,
to furnish the best the market affords.
The last time the Indies of the Busy
Bunch club met at this house you
bought all the strawberries In town,
oud at that period strawberries were
shipped in from points 5,000 miles
awa.v, and when the bill came In, at
the end of the month, I had a stroke of
paralysis aud an attack of paresis. If
you get up a dandelion party you will
want to buy out the leading confec-
tioner, so I'll advertise rt>r a man to
come and do the Job."
( By Evangelist A. G. McCown)
Dedicated to all the faithful minis-
ters I know and have wotted with
during 12 years in the field:
The parson moved without a frown,
He thot of his work in fnany a town,
Wondered how many in a new flock
Would take in religion but little stock.
He thot how many times he'd tried
Wise as a serpent, harmless as a
dove, to abide
The good to do, the evil eschew,
But they always wanted something
Preaching hard on Sunday's calling
thru week days.
Praying much, in town he stays;
Working always, studying yes,
Growing older, he must confess.
The days had passed, his playmates
In power and wea'th he knew,
But the Parson chose to preach to all
If the stars of Heaven all should fall!
His heart was scarred by many a stab ;
By folks who claimed they were not'
They patted him often upon the back
And then they turned and gave him a
His wife stood beside him well
And many a time her tears fell,
But she toiled on in her humbel way
While the Parson received very poor
The Parson said I am well paid,
To think of the converts made;
The words I have spoken,
To hearts that were broken,
The boys and girls I have spoken to,
Just think of what all they will do;
The Word I've sown in good rich soil
I'm sure this is the best of toil.
My children too I want to guide,
For they thru storms must also glide
The world must roll along the same
All we can leave is our good name.
