The woman who can truthfully be said to
lead a narrow life in the sense of being a

no interest whatever beyond her husband
and children and recognizes no outside claims
at all upon her— who does not visit her sick
neighbor, nor belong to any book club or
sewing society or church society. Herpaint

own hotna No one, save those who share
her family circle, receive any pleasure, any
1 benefit from her. Nooueis more lovely to
think on than the sweet home keeping
woman devoted to her husband and children,

a includes a woman who is a gracious hostess
