ITie United Stales covcrnment ic advocating
use of electricity more extensively on the fartas. It is
pointed out that where electricity is usel laborious farm
work is reduced and better 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 brctwn 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 hiveStigators, for on their shoulders falls
much of the most trying work on the farm. The 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 wilh the milk
ing, while seventy-nine of them trim and fill lamps,
and 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 hs been tried out.
Many farmers of Nebraska and Iowa have installed f
electricity and few of them -would do without it now
