early lives so wretched and distorted Perchance you think that your husbands disposition is much changed that he is no longer the sweet tempered ardent lover he used to be This may be a mistake Consider his struggles with the worldhis everlasting race with the busy competition of trade What is It that makes him so eager in the pursuit of gainso energetic by day so sleepless by nightbut his love of home wife and children and a dread that their respectability according to the light in which he has conceived it may be enroached upon by the strife of existence This is the true secret of that silent care which preys upon the hearts of many men i and true it is that when love is least apparent It is nevertheless the active principle which animates the heart though fears and disappointments make up a cloud which obscures the warmer element As above the clouds there iis a glorious sunshine while below arc showers aDd gloom so with the conduct of manbehind arfountain of high and noble feeling Think of this in hose moments when clouds stem to lower upon your tmperingeyour conduct accordingly the gloom will soon pass away and warmth ami brightness take its place Stay stay at home my heart and rest Homekeeping hearts are happiest For those that wander they know not where Are full of trouble and full of ore To stay at home is best Homethe name made dear by sacred associations the place where childish feet take their first faltering steps and infant minds receive their first ideas There lessons of love and truth of right and wrongof faith anJ hope and purity are im itated upon the plastic heart and all the sorrows and perplexities of Afterlife are Inefficient to quite efface these first deep true impressions Sweet home where the mothers gentle hands prepare the little domestic comforts that a fathers love provides and ftlUl affection is the silver link the silken tie that binds the household band together Trials may come and clouds may lower but in the seclusion of home sweet healing for the wounds that brave and sensitive hearts bide rom a disdainful world There these hurts and distresses may be confidently revealed and a soverign found in its unquestioning faith There a childs pure kiss or touch of dimpled Angres may- evive a soul on the verge of despair in the home the brightit dreams become more golden the rarest pleasure more intense the tendereit joys more serene And if in the varying decrees of fortune its loving shelter must be abandoned how the exile folds about his heart as the ttaveler does lots cloak the memory its lights and flowers It10Yei hopes and kindness There the noblest influences exist the holiest impulses find expression and there have been born the chaste and lofty sentiments that have made- a whole
