WEAVER CITT. Neb.. Bept. 23-To the
Editor of The Beo: Since reading the
article. "Woman1 Place In 'World." In The
Hee of August IS, written by Ella. Darling
McKilllp, I must aay I am surprised and
pained, too, to think a woman possessed
aa I suppose of that "common aenae" which
ehe speiks of ao emphatically, would take
euch a stand against her own sex, with
out Just cause. Judging from the publicity
or this article. I would, naturally under
stand that the same Is open to criticism
end with that understanding I would ask
permission to give a few of my own Ideas
on the subject.
Having been a wife and mother for the
p.ist twenty years, and a close observer
of human nature alt through the more
mature years of my llfo, I find myself
drawing conclusions very different from
those expressed by Ella Darling MeKIIllp.
She certainly must be speaking from the
standpoint of a professional msn's wife,
with no children, plenty of wealth and
nothing to do but to love and be loved,
when she says that "If married life la oi.e
elded, the woman must have the easy side
of It, for she Is protected, provided for,
humored, loved, etc.," or else she knows
nothing of the trials and hardships of the
average overtaxed farmer's wife. She
seems to think that the husband provides
the living and all the wife has to do is to
look attractive, be attractive, and try to
make everybody happy; that the home Is
her world, and If she Is true to her cause
she will not want more.
harshly. Lt woman stand up for woman
credit her with that which la due her and
I believe If she Is a "womanly woman" she

What the Farmer's Wife Does.
1 would like Ella Darling McKilllp to
ask a number of farmers' wive how this
Is, and I believe that about 90 per cent
of them will tell ber that the proceeds
from the hennery and the dairy not only
buy the living and clothing for the family
and the old man' tobacco, too but as
sist largely In Improving and beautifying
the home, or add to their worldly pos
sessions. The farmer's wife cannot live
on love. She must be her own nurse,
cook, launderer, dressmaker, gardener,
milk maid, superintend the poultry yards,
etc., while many of them plant corn-one
of which I knew to plant corn with a hand

her back, and not a savage either, but
a fanner's wife. Another cultivated corn

of 1 year was shut In a room with a little
pup for a playfellow, till mamma could
come In at noon or night and reaoue htm,
while others will take their child on their
lap and cut stalks, harvest the wheat, or
rake hay, and when the corn crop ripens

at the same time many of these women

five to ten or mora children a a kind of

work and family, ha little or no time

In many Instances such families live In

In starting out on the voyage of married
life, only think for a moment what the

her young associates, parties and social
gatherings, etc., - and take up the burden

Ella Darling McKilllp further assert that
"a wife can make or mar any. man." I
wonder If It ever occurred to her that a
husband can make or mar a woman, to
gether with the happiness, of the entire
family, thereby rendering home a veritable
hell, and he does not necessarily have to
"come home drunk and beat his wife" to
accomplish this, either.
I would like her to visit these "millions
of happy homes" she speak of like a

as happy as they appear to be and If "the

that they should be brought In as soon as

"We reached Vlgan at about 1 o'clock in

Yoans's Chief Opponent a Boy.
Young1 chief opponent In northern Luion
was the boy general. Tlno, who. a year be
fore, had wrested the northern provinces
from the Spaniards. Toung professed a
great contempt for Tlno, which he probably
did not feel; and not Infrequently he would
make humorous remark about the Insur
gent leader. "If ever I get that kid. I ll
spank him," he was in the habit of saying.
On the other hand, Tlno did not fail to

Little Ethel Oh, she's spending th day
In the country.
Little Jack had developed a penchant
for evading th truth. HI mother took
him to task for telling a fib the other day,
whereupon the following conversation
"Well, mother, you told me a He this
"Why, Jack! What do you mean? Mother
wouldn't tell a Its. It' wicked to tell
"Well, you did. anyhow."
"Why. Jack; how can you aay uch s
thing? If you don't tell me what you mean
I'll whip you."
"You'll whip me anyhow."
'Tell me Instantly."

WhenYou Buy Rubbers
You probably wait to buy rubbers
until it rains or looks like it; then you
go into the first shoe store and say
"Show me a pair of rubbers" if they stay
on ycur. feet, you pay, and wear 'em
away. , '
Until now that was the only thing
to do; all rubbers were alike; one pair
as good or as bad as another; no use
being particular about rubbers.
It's quite different now; Selz Royal
Blue Rubbers ai;e made for quality.
They're better-than-usual; so much bet
ter that you're very foolish if you take
anything else; the cost the same as the
usual. Ask for Selz Royal Blue; and if
your dealer doesn't sell 'em send to us.
