Mr. Geo. F. Min s, eJeetrician, who
did the work of putting in Col. Folks
burglar alarm baa given us the follow
ing particulars of the arrangement
and uses of same :
''If at any time during the night, a
person should enter any of the ti ve
buildings, which are connected with
the central station, either by door or
window, an alarm is sounded and the
No. of the building entered will be re
corded by an instrument provided for
that purpose. The duty.of another
instrument is to keep the bell ringing
even if the wires should be cut. The
central station board is also fitted with
a switch by which the system can be
put on at night and cut oil during the
day allowing free use of the buildings
without annoyance. All of the four
instruments are finished off in best
manner in polished oak mounted on
beard to match. The system has been
thoroughly tested in every way and
has proven entirely satisfactoy. The
central statin is of course placed in a
convenient local ion in the dwelling."

What a hallowed name! How
full of. enchantment and how dear
bo the heart! Home is the magic
circle within which the weary
spirit finds refuge; it is the sacred
asylum to which tho care-worn
heart retreats to rind rest from the
toils and inquietudes of life. Ank
rhe wanderer as he plods his tedi
ous way, bent with the weight of
age, and white with the frost of
years, ask him what is home? He
will tell you "it is a green spot in
memory; an oasis in the desert; a
center about which the foudest
recollections of his grief-oppressed
heart cling with all the tenacity
of youth's first-love. It was once
a glorious, a happy reality, but
now it rests only as an image of
the mind." Home! That name
touches every fiber of the soul,
strikes every chord of the human
heart with its angelic fingers.
No'bing but death can break its
What tender associations are
linked with home! What pleasing
images and deep emotions it awak
ens! It calls up the fondest mem
ories of .ifeand opens in our na
ture the purest, deepest, richfst
gush of consecrated thought and
feeling. Next to religion, the deep
est sentiment in the human soul
is that of home affections. Every
heart vibrates to this theme.
Home has an influence which is
stronger than death. It is law to
our hearts, and binds us with a
spell which neither time nor
change can break. Ask the little
child what is home? You will find
that to him it is the world-he
knows no other. The fathei's love,
the mothers smile, the sister,s em
brace, the brother's welcome, throw
about bis home a heaveuly halo,
and make it as attraocive to him
as the home of the angele. Home
is the place where the child pours
out oil its complaints, and it is the
grive of ail its morrows. Child
hood has its sorrows and its gr.'e . e
ances, but hon.e is the place where
these are eoothedand banished by
the sweet lullaby of a fond moth
er's voice. Ther? child-hood nes
tles like a bird which has built
i t F abode among the roses. There
the cares and the coldness of earth
arj, as long as possible, averted.
Flowers there bloom, or fruits in
vite on every side, and there para
dise would indeed be restored,
could mortal power ward off the
consequences of sin !
Home of my childhood! What
words fall upon the ear with so
much music in their cadence as
those which recall the sceues of
innocent and happy childhood,
now numbered with the memories
of tho past I How fond recollec
tions delight upon the- events
which murked our pathway, when

We aro ajrain borne on the
wings of imagination to the place
njade sacred by the remembrance
of a father's eire, a mother's Jove,
and the cherif heel associations of
brothers and sisters. The affec
tions of homes art- graceful things,
especially .am mg the poor. The
ties which link the poor man to
his humble hcarth"are of the true
metal and bear the stamp of
heaven. Thei-e affections consti
tute the poetry of human life, ard
so far as our present existence is;
concerned with ail the domestic!
relations,are worth more than al)
other social ties. They give the
first throb io the heart and unseal
the deep fountains of its love. It J
is only domestic love that can
render the heart truly happy. At j
home the mind is at rest. We may:
find joy elsewhere, buc it is notj
the joy-the satisfaction of home, j
Of the world the heart may soon
tire, of the nome never. In the
former there is much of cold for

Home and home friends! How
dear they are to us all! Well
might we love to linger on the pic
tures of borne friends! There is
nothing cn earth so beautiful as
the household on which christian
love forever smiles, aud where re
ligion walks s. counsellor and
friend. Is it not true, that much
of a man's energy and success, as
well as happiness, depends upon
the character of the h "?me. Se
cure then-, he ?oes forth bravely]
to encounter the trials of life. It
encourages him to think of his|
pleasant home. It is his point of
rest. When all other friends prove
false, home friends, rt moved from?
every bias but love, are the stead
fast and sure stays of our peace
and soul,-are best and dearest
when the hou . is darkest and the
danger of evil the greatest. Home
is nothing but a name wi'houlj
bonni friends. Herc indeed ar?
repeated from day to dav, the
miracles of providence and the j
wonders of nature.
There aro two grand, simple.}
qua?tii H, all powerful in heaven
and o.i earth, love and order. A
pleasant word on the part of the
wife, when the husband conies
home, often dispels 'he trouble
from bis mind, and draws out a de
sire to le both agree able and res
pectful, which characteristics ure
always accompanied by affection.
And vvheie swee' temper gives way
to anger and discord, the home
circle it. no longer attractive, and
is almost certain to be shunned.
Nothing makes the home so happy
as thc perpetual sunshine cf a'con
tented disposition there. The
habit of always looking on the
suny ?ide obliges people to see the
silver lining of the cloud in spite
of themselves. It is not so much
wealth nor Teaming, as tone and
temper, that makes life joyous or
miserable,, that rendem hom?s
happy or wretched. The want of
love is not supplied by anything.
The sweetest type of heaven is?
home. It is an inspiring hope
