Dissension In families often arises
from a lack of imitunl consideration
among tlio members of the family. The
"soft answer thnt tnrneth away wrath"
Is forgotten for the hasty reply,-the un
kind retort, that kindle the fire of 111
feeling. J.ove does not llngor In the
home where rudeness shows Its unlove
ly qualities. It chooses to dwell in the
home where the spirit of unselfishness,
of self control, of thoughtfuhiess and
of # charitableness makes the atmos
phere sweet. The woman who Is quick
to take offense Is not like her of whom
Holy Scripture says. "Her ways ore
ways of pleasantness, and all her paths
are peace." Happy homes depend on
happy hearts. Home Is distinctively a
woman's sphere, and she who sweetens
It most makes earth nearer heaven.
