A place for tired ladies to rest

Give the tired ladies somewhere to rest.  From the June 4, 1914 edition of the Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 4:

A Rest Room for Ladies.

There has been considerable talk of a rest room in Skidmore for ladies where they can take their children, give them a good cold drink and have a place for the tired, mothers, ladies and children to rest.  This is a deserving thing and all Skidmore should be interested in a place of this kind.  Don’t let the matter go at simply talking about it.

It is also suggested that there should be a toilet in connection with this room where the mothers can take the children.  A number of citizens have suggested to your reporter that they would be glad to assist in providing these places if the town would interest itself in supplying them.  This is a work that the Ladies Improvement Society might take up with good success.
