Courtesy in the House
Many parents complain of their chll

for them by the rough school life or the
poor neighborhood In which they reside.
These, however, are but false excuses.
In homes where true courtesy prevails.
It seems to meet vou on the threshold.
No angry voices are beard upstairs No
sullen children are sent from the room
No peremptory orders are rflven servants
A delightful atmosphere pervades the
house unmistakable, et indescribable.
Such a house, tilled by the spirit of love
and truo courtesy, is a home indeed to
all who enter within its consecrated walls.
And. why? Because in that home man

These movements nro for the most part

be developed Into a real dance.
