iThe Cheerful Womtiiu
There are emergencies in every
household which call for tLe display of
a statesman's skill. The cheerful wo- I
man is pre-eminent on such occasions. |
S':e conquers the grim uncle or the ;
dyspeptic cousin with her infective
6. eerfulness, and her servants recognize
-her as their friend and ally in
all matters that are essential to their
welfare. The length of time she keeps
her servants is a source of wonderment
to .':er less fortunate friends, but the
secret of it is her own winsome dispo
sition. She soot.es the tired worker
with a word of kind commendation
where another might make a querulous
complaint. When direction is
needed she delivers it in such a gentle,
albeit firm, manner that it ifcas no sting
This gentle, tactful woman is not afflicted
with work tiliat is from "sun
to sun," or that is "never done." She
does not moralize much, perhaps, but
by some means she manages to accomplish
a great deal of work and
have plenty of time at her command.
It is by means of tfeat same cheerfulness
of disposition. There is less
delay in executing l':er commands, and
she possesses tfte girt or "timing ner
turns," so that sometimes it seems as
if the "fairies did help her." And the
fairies of gentle breeding and o: kind
iieart do help .her.
Everybody welcomes a smiling face.
A'I doors are open to it; all social circles
welcome it. It is an open sesame I
to heart and 5. ome. By it burdens are
lightened, cares dispelled, sorrows
banished, and hope made to reign triuniphant
where fear, doubt and despondency
held high carnival.
