Chore Time

Chore Time by Jean McKishnie Blewett
By: (1862-1934)

Jean McKishnie Blewett (4 November 1862 – 19 August 1934) was a Canadian journalist, author and poet.
Blewett was a regular contributor to The Globe, a Toronto newspaper and in 1898 became editor of its Homemakers Department. In 1919, assisted by the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, she published a booklet titled Heart Stories to benefit war charities. During this time she regularly lectured on topics such as temperance and suffragism. She used the pseudonym Katherine Kent for some of her writing.
After her death, fellow female journalist Bride Broder wrote in tribute: "There is a simplicity about Mrs. Blewett's prose and verse that has made a wide appeal, and her gay-hearted attitude to life, the humorous twists she gave to little things, made her very welcome as a speaker at women's gatherings. In all her writings she touched on the things that appeal to women everywhere and, in doing so, won the admiration of men readers also." (Wikipedia)

Lillian Massey Treble

A woman with a heart of gold I heard her called before I knew How noble was that heart and true, How full of tenderness untold.

Her sympathies both broad and sure, Her one desire to do the right Clear visioned from the inner light God gives to souls unworldly, pure.

A heart of gold that loves and gives, God's almoner from day to day, Of her there is but this to say: The world is better that she lives.
