(Id.) Upper 5e§ Moines Thursday, Sept. 1, 1955 The, "Praise and Properties of a Good Wife", found in the last chapter of the book of Proverbs in the Bible was written for the women of Solomon's time, but the ideals back of the list of qualifications still apply thousands of years later to the women of 1955. The philosophy is appropriate after all these years but the way the model woman of today carries out the virtues is quite different. And so are the materials with which she works. * * * The Bible says, "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. , The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him Rood and not evil all the clays of her life. She sceketh wool, and flax and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants' ships: she bringeth her food from afar." "She riseth also while it is yet night and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. She considereth a field and b'uyeth it; with the fruit ol her hands she planteth a vineyard —She layeth her hands to the spindle and her hands hold the distaff. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor: yea .she reach- eth forth her hands to the needy.'' "She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh horsef coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.—She openeth her mouth with wisdom and in her tongue is the law of kindness." "She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed: her husband also, and he praiseth her. — Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates." c r * An exemplary ferrfale is jusl as hard to find today as it was back in the Old Testament. And though I fully realize that neither the eternal truths nor the majestic language of the Bible can be improved upon, if we were interpreting this chapter for today's woman, I wonder if it might not go somewhat like this: [THESE WOMEN By d'Alessto Never underestimate the power of a good woman. She is worth her weight in Uranium. Her husband trusts her; he knows she meant it when she promised to forsake all others and love, honor and obey only him. His interests are paramount in her life and she will never knowingly do anything to hurt him. She tends to the duties of her home for she knows that the clothing and feeding of her family are strictly her department. She goes down to the super-market to buy food for the family and she selects delicacies, in season, from all over the world-— at the mos economical prices. Sit" is the first one to gel u| in the morning and sin- cooks Rood, nouri.ihing breakfast foi her loved ones.

All her family aie aHrai:t- she is out with the girls, she thinks twice before she indulges in idle gossip. She lets kindness color all her versions of a story. She looks after her family: she isn't lazy. She knows that homemaking consists of far more than housekeeping- She works foi and with the schools in gelling a good education for her children and she sees to il thai they have the best possible preparation for life—a strong religious faith. Her children point her ou proudly and say, "That's my Mom!" and her husband always says nice things about her. When they come to their golden wedding anniversary, he says, "What! Has it been fifty years already?" * * * And with the ancient philosopher of Solomon's time, we. clear down the centuries' into 1955 can say, "Favour is deceitful, and beauty vain; but a woman lhal feareth the Lord, she shall be praised." It is a far cry from reading the Bible to a discussion of the ust? of profanity among the small- fry, but we mothers know we all have to contend with the problem once in awhile. A local mother was surprised the other day to have her little son come in and say, "Mama, is jackass a naughty word?" The mother replied, "That's all irntbc way you'mean it and say it, dear." The little boy was very thoughtful for a time. Then he went into the bathroom, got a bar of soap and handed it to his mother. "Wash my mould out. Mom", he said. "I guess I've been swearing again!' : Insurance men are notoriously diligent when it comes to seeking customers. One local insurance man that I know is also notoriously successful in placing bets that the odds always go his way. In fact, if this guy bet that the sun would come up in the west some morning, I think Old Sol would probably oblige for one day only. However there was one day this summer when he lost a bet A group of Algona businessmen were on a fishing expedition and this insurance man bet that he could reach Bancroft before the gas tank, which registered, Empty, really gave up the ghost, bout three miles out the engine pluttcred, coughed and died and ur bettor conceded that he'd lost nd started to town for more uel. The rest of the party wait- d in the car and he didn't come jack and didn't come back. Finlly when they had just about lecided to walk into Bancroft and : ind him, back came our sales- nan. He and a can of gas, the noney to pay off the bet and a check for a paid up insurance policy he'd sold while at the filling station!
