How to Keep lIinibniiilN nt Home
This subject, although apparently an
easy one. is engaging the attention of
some of the brightest minds of today.
It is one of the most important sub?
jects which can claim the utteulion of
auy wife. I shti'l eudenvor to give y on
my best thoughts on the subject.
A wife's duty is not that of leader,
but miuiRler. She should be the guide,
? he adviser, the "power behind the
tbrone." If she is a ttue woman, she
will endeavor to supply her husband's
ueeds iu the best maun er possible. It
is from her that be should gel love,
sympathv aud enuourngemeut in the
great batt!e of life
While special cases require special
treatment, yet we will take a genera'
view of this subject, which is all we
can do in this space.
We find that man possesses a com?
plicated nature?a physical, intellect?
ual, moral and religious nature. In
the very nature of the case be will be
comparatively happy if these wants
We first, tbeu, must base our con?
clusions on these first principles. We
must go farther than the mere trickery
of pleasing dress, etc. These rau?t be
regarded rather as effects than causes.
First, wc should minister to out- hus?
bands'physical necessities. Of course,
this includes everything which relates
to bis temporal well beim;. He mu.-t
have a cheerful, happy home. No
reasonable request should be denied.
Comfort and even luxuries, as far as
possible, should be supplied Hooks,
music, dowers, pictures, with a happy
wife and children, are great powers id
But t'ris is not ail. He must have
iDlei ectual companionship, and the
true wife must turnisli it. She must he
up with the times, and take an interest
iu all the things he IKies. She must
study his tastes and preferences, and
she must take an active interest iu bis
business affairs and help him plan and
devise. If she has tact, she will wisely
direct him in'o the proper channel ol
thought without bis ever suspecting n
We must be "wise a* serpents aud
harmless as doves." She must prove
herself a wise aud true companion aud
Thirdly. She must be a moral ftaff
and guide. Men are not as delicate in
their moral perceptions as women, aud
it is here that she can wield her great?
est influence. She must take a stand
for the right, come what may. She
must have the courage to die in pov?
erty rather tbau live upon the proceeds
of ill-gotten gains. She must prune off
all immoral twins in her husband's
character by her own precepts aud
Fourthly. Man's spiritual nature
ueeds cultivation, and it is she who
must do it. There is uothiug so at?
tractive as a well-rounded Christian
character If you possess this jewel
.ou have a power over your husband
almost irrexistiblo. Your exercise of
patience, kindness, politeness, Rweet
ness. cannot fail iu influence. After
all. Christian love is the essence of all
'?Love stoops to earth in service sweet.
And foremost treads the golden street."
The religion of Jesus Christ will
make you lovable, and your husband,
'?seeins your good works, will "glorify
your Father, which is in heaven."
I believe these to be the fundamental
principles which will enable us to keep
our husbauds at home, and if they fail
there is nothiug we can do but pray for
them and murmur not, knowing that
in "due season we shall reap if we faint
