THE HOME CIRCLE
COLUMN
THIS column is prepared weekly
in the hope that it may awaken ont
onI
the part of the husband and the
child a deeper appreciation of her I
who is the central figure of home
that it may strengthen the family
bonds making them more beautiful
and tinder that it may encourage
charity and breathe hope for the
future where language is music
thought is light and love is law To
the mature in years the Home Circle
Column may voile as sad sweet
melodies touching the soul with a
gentle dew melancholy and bring
ing into view the reflected radiance
of a golden dawning To the young
we trust it may brighten and deepen
the pleasures and a memory of home
awakening a nobler life and a grand
er future
jfi
WOE to him who smilesnot over
a cradle and weeps not over a tomb
He who has never tried the compan
ionship of a little child has care
lessly passed by one of the greatest
pleasures of life as one passes a rareI
flower without plucking it or know
ing its value The gleeful laugh of 1
happy children is the best home 1
music and the graceful figures of
childhood are the best statuary
We arc all kings and queens in the
cradle and each babe is a new mar
vel a new miracle
mirncleI
OUR ideal home is not necessa
rily adorned with the trappings of
wealth neither must it be saddened
by pinching poverty A competence
there must be which with indus
try and thrift will preserve its in
mates from painful anxieties
In this home the husband is the
bread winner the wife the home
makerand together they reign over
this little realm The children for
there are children in our ideal home
are loyal and obedient subjects ev
every one and it never occurs toJ
them to question the divine right of 1
their Icing and queen to rule
Order ana system prevail but 1
love selfsacrifice for loves sake ani
mates all hearts within this home
and to he good and to do good is
their constant rule ofconductHealth 1
smiling gooddess stands at its por
tals and scatters happiness and pros
perity with lavish hands The table
s not only the place where natures
recurring wants are daily supplied
but a school of manners yet there
harmless mirth disports itself unre
buked and thought unfettered flow
Books there in nbundandace bring
ing the culture of all countries and
all ages within the reach of this
charmed circle Flowers bloom in e
the window and smile at you from
the garden paths with their sugges
tions of beauty and refinement YetI
whatever else may be there the 1
guests who frequent this house arej
its choicest most valued ornaments
So great is the mind of a sweet
minded woman on those around her
that it is almost boundless It is to
her that friends come in seasons ofj
sorrow and sickness for helpand I
comfort one soothing touch of herJ
t
kindly hand worko wonders in the
feverish child a few words let fall I
from her lips in the ear of a sorrow
stricken sister do much to raise the
l
load of grief that is bowing its vic
tim down to the dust in anguish
The husband comes home worn outC
with the pressure of business and
irritable with the world in general
but when he enters the cosy sitting
room and sres the blaze of fire and
meets his wifes smiling face he suc
cumbs in a moment to the soothing
influences which act as the balm of
Gilend to his wounded spirits that
are wearcd by the stern realities ofCI
life The rough school boy flies into
rage from the taunts of his com
panions to find solace in his mothers
smile the little one full of grief with
her large trouble finds a haven of
rest on its mothers breast and sq
one might go on with instance after
instance of the influence that a sweet
minded woman has in the social life
with which she is connected Beauty
s an insignificant power when com
pam 1 with hers

IT is a truth no thinking person
IIwho will deny that every man and
woman whom the world calls great
and whose words have been saved
for their wisdom or goodness all
cherish with the utmost tenderness
their memories of mother of happy
innocent childhood and of home
Their testimony is always interest
ing often very beautiful and they
speak the common sentiment of the
human race The love of home is
universal The ties of home should
be and usually arythe strongest
and most sacred on earth True in
the busy street young people go
rushing on until the work of the day
is over but when night comes on the
heart is apt to wander back to the
Old Folks at Home The old old
house the familiar walks about the
place the garden paths the deep old
fashioned well the bam and gentle
horse are all called buck to memory
and the son or daughter is again
with the loved one at home It is
true that many a young man goes
to a city and too soon forgets his
father and mother but they do not
forget him The social circle theI
ballroom and tht theatre occupy his
time and his evenings are spent
away from his room If this Home
Circle column falls into the hands of
such young man and it willWe I
hope he may stop and reflect before
he leaves his room at night and
write a letter home undI
Dont go to the theatre coicert or I
ball
hallI
But stay In your room tonight
Deny yourself to the friends thnt i
call
And a good long letter write
Write to the good old folksat homo
Who Bit when the day is done
With folded hands and downcast
eyes
And think of the absent line
MANY men have been obscure in
their origin of birth but great nnrl
glow ious in life and death They have
been born and nurtured on farms or
villages but have reigned and tri
umphed in cities They were first laid
in the mangers of poverty and ob
scurity but have afterwards become
possessors of thrones and palaces
Columbus was the son of a weaver
and a weaver himself Homer was
the son of a small farmer Demos
thenes was the son of a cutler The
biography of ten of our presidents is
the story of ten poor boys John
Adams second president was the
son of a grocer of limited means An
drew Jackson was born a in log hut
in North Carolina and was reared in
the pine woods for which the State
is famous James K Polk spent his
early years toilingon a farm in North
Carolina Millard Filmore wasborn
in a small town in the Alleghany
mountains His father cut logs of
which their cabin home was builtC
Abraham Lincoln waR the son of a
wretchedly poor farmer in Kentucky
and lived in n cabin until he was
twentyone Andrew Johnson was
apprenticed to a tailor at the age of
ten years by his widowed mother
U S Grant lived the life of a village
boy in a plain house on the Ohio
river This house is now on exhibi
tion at the St Louis Exposition
James A Garfield was born in n log
cabin Grover Clevelands father
was a Presbyterian minister with a
large family and a small salary
Wm McKinleys home was plain
and his father worked hard to keep
him in school Thus you all see that
poverty is often a beacon light guid
ing industrious honest young men
to fame and fortune No young man
in glorious America has cause to be
discouraged because he was born in
poverty From the most humble
walks of life has sprung our greatest
and best men and women
