From the Religious Press

Rev. W. C. Roberts in The Church Standard says: "There is a class of people, and it is a large one, with whom it is perfectly delightful to live, so long as the thermometer does not vary more than three degrees. If the mercury stays at 70 degrees Fahrenheit, or does not sink below sixty-seven degrees, they are reasonable and even pious—their tempers are equable—their spirits are good, their view of life is roseate, and altogether you put them down as just the best people in the world.

"But when the frost gets into the air, never so little, and creeps into the house, to make the thought of chilliness possible, a change comes over them that is pitiful to behold, and painful to contemplate. All the gepiality has departed, the well-rounded nature has changed into a mass of sharp angles, the altruistic spirit has turned to vinegar, and a single hour of companionship with them is sixty minutes of martyrdom—fussiness and fretfulness are in every tone of their voice.
