Patriotism and Love of Country
Can scarcely be expected of children reared by
homeless parents with no more serious thought than
the present. "Just as the twig is bent, the tree's in
clined," and as more recent writers have said, "The
home is the backbone of our nation," it behooves all
lovers of life, liberty and happiness, and particularly
those directing the footsteps of the youth of our
country to set a good example. To do this it is not
necessary to build a palace and go in debt for life.

With it you can plan a home of any size you may ul
