That pretty definitely says Hausmutter.
The capital letter is a German "H" as in the attached picture off Wikipedia. The "hooks" on top of the "u" are there to make the "u" and "n" easier to distinguish from each other.
I would assume the other word says "Hausvater", then - "Pater" would be a Latin loan word that was used in religious context (monasteries and other organisations), but rather not in a secular one - And normally not combined with "Haus".
Hausmutter and Hausvater were sometimes used in former times when more than one family was living in a large household - These two were informally denominated "the bosses" in that household and headed it. Today these "titles" have only survived in boarding schools, children's homes and youth hostels.
