to make conversation nenial and happy.
We are toj ieady to converse with
newspapers and hooks, to seek some
companion at the. stoie. hotel, or club
room, and to fornet that home is any
thing more than a place to sleep an. i eat
in. The revival of conv, rsaiioii. the
eiitertainmentof one another, jus a room
full of people will entertain themselves,
is on. secret of a happ home. When
er it is wantinn, tlisease has struck
into the root of the tree; there is a want
which is i,i with incrensinir force as
time noes on.
Conversation, in -nunv eases, is just
wind prevents many people from re
lapsinn into utter selfishness at their
firesides. Th's conversation should
not simply occupy husband and wife
and the older members of the family,
but extend itself to the children. Pa
rents should he cave full to talk with
them, to enter into their life, to share
their tritl-'s. to assist in their studies. 10
meet them in the thoughts and feelinns
of their childhood. It is a nreat step in
education, when around the evening
lamp.are gathered thedifferent members
of a family, sharinn their oceup-iiion
with one another the older assistinn
the vounner. each one contrihutinn to the
entertainment of the other, and all feel
inn that the eveninn had passed only
too rapidly away. This is the truest
and best amusement. It is the healthv
absurd and exasperated.
