They nursed a sick child or member of the family when no medical help was available. They gave encouragement constantly to their husbands to strengthen them in their many responsibilities o The pioneer mother was a sacred institution in herself. She went the extra mile to improve conditions with what little was available. She gave thanks for her blessings through rendering service to the poor and unfortunate. She was always ready to improvise when emergencies demanded extra effort and skill. Her many acts of self-reliance and personal fortitude were seldom reported. She was the heart of the home and in some cases the foundation of the family. She instilled in her family the virtues and traits of character that bring eternal happiness and joy. The pioneer mother played a vital role in this valley which we call home, a role which we should always remember and hold dear. * iv * THE SABBATH--A DAY OF REST Vernon F.
