terrific the damage can be dcne. Daring

I:LIaioN iN TPE HOME
Tlere are no WOrS so familiar to
us :(l a"11ow h-r" and "home:" They
are the hirst wor:s :iltnost that inint
lips le~ir:: t) ak. The first face
p:ssi;b t'it yo:: vu or I eve r saw was
the face of inother. We very often
i:ear the expression "I believe I will
go husie," hence we are warranted in
asking this question.
wrT Is HOME?
How sad, that thou:isands know not
t:e mieaning of that word "home."
One has beautifully s:tid! that "home
is the magic circle within which the
weary spirit finds refuge. It is the
sacred asvlum to which the care
worn heart retreats to find rest from
the trials of life."
If we ask the aged who has wan
dered far from home and friends,
and kindred, whose form is treem
ling, who leans upon his staff, while
his hair is white with the frost of Tears
that flows ove r his stooped shoulders.
Ask him what is home? and that word
will awaken all the tender memories
that fill his soul. And he will tell
you that "'homie is a green spot ini my ]
If we ask the child what is home,
he or she will tell you, (could he speak
the language, that his own heart
feels), that "it is a place where I
pour out all my joys and sorrows,
and where when tired of play, and
sick and faint I can pillow my head
upon the bosom of mother and feel
safe. There I have father's love,
mother's smile, sister's kiss, and <
brother's welcome; having this, makes
home for me."
So to us all home is
1. A PLACE OF REFUGE.
We are tossed to and fro over the <
ocean of life, dashed here and there
by the waves of a thousand problems,
often too hard for us to solve. How
glad are we when the Tay is past and
we can free our minds of the cares of
life, and find a sweet refuge around
our own fireside. There we are safe.
Is this not a blessing that we too of
ten fail to thank God for? How
many of us ever stop and thank God
for a home. Oh! what a blessing it c
is, when weary with care and bur
dened with sorrow, to have a home
to which we can go, and there, in the
midst of friends we love and cherish, t
forget our troubles, cares, and disap
pointments, and around one's own
fireside dwell in peace. Hence, it be
comes a place of refuge to us all.
2. HOME Is A PLACE OF REST.
It must have been the thonght of
rest at home in the mind of the
prophet when he said, "Come, let -s
go home." After we have spent a
day of anxious toil, in our stores,
facing the storms of opposition, or on 1
our farms striving with all the du- t
ties that are incumbent unon us, in 1:
our daily avocations, tired, busy, de
pressed in spirit, how sweet is the
rest at home!
One of the apostles seemed to
know something of the cares and
anxiety to which the human heart
was prone, and he exhorted us to
"take no thought of to-morrow." But
"come unto me all ye that are weary
and- heavy laden and I will give you
rest." The sweetest rest this side of
heaven is the rest at hon e, where all
of our joys and affections centre.
3. HOME IS A PLACE OF LOVING WL
However stormy and adverse the
battle of life may seem; if men who
profess to be friends turn their backs
upon us; if they hurl the sharp ar
rows of criticism into our hearts; if
there is no place where we can find
welcome and a repose out in the
world of toil; we are sure that there
is one place where a loving welcome
always waits--at home. Men have
grown so wicked and so filled with
shame and disgrace that they are
banished from society and are looked
upon as being "hopeless." No one
welcomes their approach be':-.use of
their shame and wickedness, but that
boy never lived who was so lost to re
spectability that mother could not
see something good in him and give
him a tender welcome at home. The
prodigal son had gone down into the
depths of shame, lost his character
and his money and his friends, but
when he turned his wandering foot
steps homeward, there he .found a
loving welcome and tender embraces.
Also, home is a

A soNG OF HOME.
Some years ago about twenty
thousand peop'lle gathered in the old
Castle Garden, New York, to hear
Jennie Lind sing, as no other song
stress ever had sung, the sublime
compositions of Beethoven, Handel,
&c. At length the matchless singer
thought of her home, paused a mo
ment, and with deep emotions began
to sing "Home, sweet home." The
audience in an instant arose'
and caused such an up
roar of applause that it stopped
the music. Tears fell from many an
eye. "Home" wais the word that
bound as,with a magic spell, twenty
thousand souls. Was it not the
thought of home and its ties that
threw the soul of music into the song
of the old Scotchman ?
