20                       THE REVIEW



                             IV

        WOMAN'S WORK  AND  INFLUENCE IN HOME AND                   
                         CHURCH.
    This subject is so complex that I hesitate to approach it
in the short space alloted to this paper, as I feel I can do jus-
tice neither to the subject nor to myself.
    From the beginning of time, woman has represented the
good, the true and the beautiful. She has been the personifi-
cation of the world's ideals. All things that bring good to us,
that tend to increase our happiness and make life worth living,
are represented in the feminine. For instance, note the sea-
sons, that bestow upon man such a variety of blessings; the
moon that adds its splendor to the night; the ships that carry
us through dangerous places, and the earth, so often spoken
of as "mother earth."
    Since the dawn of history woman's influence has glorified
the world. We need, therefore, wonder not, when the beauti-
ful attributes of woman becomes the mother of Christ. The
highest ideals, the noblest conceptions and the purest thoughts
of the world, have always been presented in the form of wo-
man. Ancient sculptors made every immortal idea a daughter
of the gods.  In all the literature of the ages, the messenger
of mercy, the carrier of peace, the creator and preserver of
all happiness, has been woman.
    But let us take up our subject in the concrete instead of
the abstract.
