Reform is Necessary.
'o the Editor of TEE UKE.
There is an evil in the land that is
ooth annoying and fraught with
greater evils and Omaha is not exempt
'mm its effects. All are aware of the
lecess'ty existing ( from various
jauses ) for the employment of ser-
, -ants or domestics in families , aud all
iqually realize the : tnponanca of
: ompotent and faithful servants. Bat
infortunately owing to the rant of
system aud proper regulation , but fei
families are able to procure competen
or faithful help , and the few who ar
really what is desirable are corrupts
by the evil ii flucnce of the wortt.lfss
and the tact that they find that theai
worthless tervanta get ths aame wages
as the faithful , In order to obvhtt
these evils it ia necessary that house
keepers co operate and inaugurate D
system Lf service rutorin , and one im
purtaiit step toward auch reform is
the adoption of a regulation that nc
servant will be einplnyud without
such references or certiricrte of char
acter as will at least pi ce the em
ployer in a position to know some
thing of the character of those thej
hire. A move in thie direction is
a necessi'y loudly c tiled for , aim ia
demanded in justice to the employe :
as well as the worthy , competent
aid or wonnn who houebtlyaud laih-
fully labors to earn her wa ea.
The necessity of this reform none
will deny , and if the evil be not cor
rected , the fault is grea'ly attr.buta-
hie to the want of concert with the
family tiiring help. How many ladies
in Omaha urn dnvtn to abandon
the cuinfor's of a home and are liv
ing in ronma and boarding houses be
cause of the griat difficulty in
pr icuriii ! ! competent ho p and the
number of housekeepers wnose heal h
is utteily broksn , because of the vex
atu.n and aim .yance i f faithless nd
incompe'ent servants. I' ev-ry Udy
would refuse to tinul } hi < lp whu
cannot giie referei co f character and
qualification , then competent ser
vants only could procure employment
at fait remunerating wag'-Sj ainx-in
competent , and unworthy ones would
have tolearn and reform before they
could practice an imposition on the
public. A Sci'rauR. :
