An hour put in over the furniture,
tightening up the joints, looking
after loose or missing screws, a few
dabs of glue, a few sheets of sand
paper, a pot of glue and a can of
paint in willing hands will renovato
the shabbiest furniture and give it
renewed life, much to the comfort of
the whole family. No man who is
not willing to do such work, and
thus help to keep the home bright
and cheerful, has any right to have
a homo. A woman alono can not
mako a homo, nor can she keep ram
shackle furniture and rattling win
dows or sticking doors from being
eye-sores and irritants to everybody.
If she is at all particular as to "the
looks of things," nothing will so
soon ruin her temper and her nerves
as shabby, unsightly furnishings
that could so easily be renovated at
so little expense.
