us, it being so full of interesting home
reading matter.which cheers our hearts,
and serves to smooth down the path-
way of life. You also give us the in
teresting news that is abroad, which
eeps us posted as to what is going-on
in, the world, and this affords us topics
for conversation. How a family can
be contented without such information
when it only costs the pitiful sum of
one dollar per year is strange to me
My observation is that the man who
does not read a newspaper has poor con
versational powers, and this rule ap
plies even more especially to women.
Visit a house where a paper is not read,
and what can a woman talk about ex
cept her chickens and- such like? Hus-
bands, take the standard lor tne bene
fit of your wife and children, even if
you do not read it yourlf. Certainly
in no other wav could a dollar be as
