Eieciriciiy on the Farm!
The United States government is advocating the
use of electricity more extensively on -the farMs. It is
pointed out that where electricity is usel laborious farm
work is reduced andjjetter results are obtained. Many
things can be done on a farm with electricity, such as
churning, grinding grain for live stock, food for poultry,
washing' dishes, lighting the buildings and other neces
sary tasks that now require brawn and sap vitality.
Farm life should be made as pleasant and easy as
possible, to increase its popularity. The work of the
women folk on the farm would be much less arduous
with the installation of electrical appliances, say the
government investigators, fcr on their shoulders falls
much of the most trying work on the farm. 'I he aver
age farm woman works a few minutes more than thir
teen out of twenty-four hours during summer, and her
daily average for the year is eleven hours and eighteen
minutes. Half of the women on farms, say the gov
ernment reports, are at work at 5 a. m. and get prac
tically no rest until they retire at night. Of every 100
women on farms thirty-six'of them help with the milk
ing, while seventy-nine of them trim and fill lamps,
arid all but four do the family washing.
As a labor-saver electricity, says the government,
has no equal, while the saving of vitality to both man
and woman is astonishing where it has been tried out.
Many farmers of Nebraska and Iowa have installed
electricity and few of them would do without it now.
