The Charm Of The Home
In what does the charm of a home consist?
You have seen homes, have yon not, that have
been elegantly furnished, yet which were not home
like. You do not enjoy being there. You feel stiff
and uncomfortable and dull. Everything about the
place pleases the eye the rich oriental rues, the dain
ty curtains, the beautiful pictures, the graceful pottery,
lint somehow, tnere is little to please the sp rit.
On the other hand, vou have been in homes where
the furniture 5s shabby and worn and even when at its best never of
the best, and yet everv moment spent there is delightful. And also
there have been homes elegantly furnished that have given this cheer
to the spirit.
You have also been in homes where the meals have been cooked
and served in a way to satisfy an epicure and yet you go away witli a
sense of lack. And in other homes where tne fare is of the synplest,
and everybody waits on everybody else, you have gone away with a
sense of pleasure that has filled you for days.
Wh'it is this indefinable thing which, regardless of furnishings or
food, makes a home a haven of delight?
I was set to thinking about if by a chance Tcinfirk I overheard,
and I thought perhaps some of my home-making friends might like to
ponder the problem, too.
We passed a house prettily lighted. The electric light gleamed
on the porch. Through the windows, partially -haded by filmv cur
tains, could be seen a cosy living room, the prettily shaded lamp n
the table sending out inviting beams. The house looked bright, in
viting, comfortable. ,,
"I like to see a house lighted at night," said the man. My
sister, you know, keeps house for me and she never thinks to light tip
at night. When I go home, she is alwavs in the kitchen getting
supper, and the house is like a cave, no light in the hall, no light in
the living room, every thing dark and dismal. She always has a
tcug-up supper, I will say that. But I would like things a little
bright od cheerful as well."
Kind ntient sister! Can't vou see her? Slaving away in the
kitchen to give her brother a good dinner, but forgetting all about
"lighting up,"' oi 2Le perhaps thinking it a useless extravagance,
I have heard other mer. express the same thought that they liked j
to come home to a bright, cheerfdl house with their wife in a pretty j
dress waiting for them. I have even known one man reckless enough
to say he would rather that such a picture of brightness and cheer
awaited him than a good dinner.
There should be the good dinner. A working man needs good
food. Hut why shouldn't there also be the brightness and cheer and
And isn't it this brightness and cheeriiK-ss and cosiness that gives
charm to a home, regardless of the kind of furniture it has or the
stvle with which the food is served? The poor home that has it. you
enjoy. You also enjov the wealthy home that has it. But the home
that lacks it, be it poor or rich, lacks the one thing that makes you
deiight in it.
Charm is an elusive thing. It is elusive in a woman. It is
elusive in a home. But isn't one of the largest factors in it, the good
will and kindness and unselfishness that thinks of the good of
others, that unstintedly pours out i'self in the effort to make all about
it cheery and happy?
