FOR TIIE TABLE.
In setting the table no matter how
simple the equipmennt, there can be
a daintiness and care in
its arrangement which
shows thought and love
of the beautiful. No mat
ter how poor one may
be the air of neatness is
always indicative of re
finement. A simple cen
terplece of gkeen, a five
cent fern or a flower al
ways adds beauty to the
table. Then the conversation is
most important; where there are chil
dren whose ideals must be formed,
I the table talk may be the means of
shaping their entire lives. Petty gos
sip, criticism and time for general
I correction makes an otherwise pleas
ant meal most uncomfortable. Table
manners should be taught to children,
but example will do much, ivith an
occasional kindly correction.
Come to the table in a bright and
happy mood, keep the conversation
in pleasant and instructive grooves.
One of our great educators always
had an atlas, an encyclopedia and a
dictionary in the dining room to be
consulted during the meal when it
was necessary to use reference books.
The children from that home went
out with a broad and general educa
tion that could never have been ac
quired from books or college train
ing. In the tender years of a child's
life impressions may be made, facts
learned without conscious effort on
his pat-t, that will remain in the mem
ory as long as the mind lasts.
Wholesome food is one of the neces
sities of a well-balanced body, and
wholesome thought is just as vital to
a well-balanced mind. We believe
I these things and nod approval when I
they are spoken or written, but weI
get nowhere unless we ourselves work
to accomplish results. We often hear
remarks made of certain families of
children, "they are so well-mannered,
they were just born that way." The
I fact is, if" those lives were investi
gated, that the parents have spared
no pains or time, no comfort, to teach
and train them. This training is not
always seen, but it must be given to
get good results.
