Here is a pleasant scene
from the life 2,500 years ago, in
dicating that from the earliest
ages have f pleasure in looking
at the glowng -upon the hearth.
"While I musing, the fire
burned," said psalmist. There
is something those warm glow
ing coals in open fire that tends
toward plA reminiscence and
the romantic frpme of mind.
Sorrows soften as the eyeidwell
on the cheerful embers and the flick

homeness in fire on the hearth
that starts fri dly conversation.
During the e nights of 'the fall
