The Home as a Prodater of Hap
The influence of the homo upon
happiness can hardly bo overesti
mated. Tho family is tho groat
American institution, and yet for
some reason, no scholar has given
us a history of tho influence of tho
homo upon individual happiness
and cultured civilization in gener
al. If Bishop Bryco has written
tho history of our laws that make
a man's house his castle, it re
gains for their students to traco
tho riso and growth of rich affec
tion that turns a houso into a real
homo. Kvory member of tho fam
ily should pride himself with tho
fact that it is his duty to lend a
hj^nng hand in making tho homo
aplico of happiness.
They who love their own and
aro beloved can say, "Let events
do their best, I have a happy
home." Immcsurablo, tho influ
ence of tho homo upon a man's
commerce and iuelustry.
Tho history of invention and
tools is very largely tho story how
when some now want or kunger
has arisen in tho home, man has
gone forth to provide some means
for satisfying thc desire of this lov
ed ono. For tho sake of luis homo,
man will shiver in thc Arctics,
searching for gold and furs; foi
'? home man will penetrate al!
orests, climb all mountains, brave
In seeking out thc most popu
ir poems of Burns, wo .pass by all
msc in which tho poet exposes tin
yprocrisy of the "Urooo gud," 01
des sweet songs to teach reveller.1
ic joy of tho drinking cup, ol
.ughs at woman's frailty, Ol
nites man's sins. The greatcs
mes of Burns' genius were ii
lose hours when he sang of bonn
ad love, and friendship. And now
' love of home lends sweetness t<
ic songs of this poet, not ot her
wiso has it been with ot IHM- groa
utbors and poets. Asked to nunn
io groat works of ?nv writer i
is always safo to elvo tho name of
tho ono in which tho author des
cribed tho sconos of his childhood.
Indeed history has no groat poem,
no drama, no novel, whoso theme
is not homo and lovo and God, who
over kindles tho divino llamo.
?Take homo out of music and liter
ature and it would bo Uko taking
warmth out of lire, sweetness out
of tho rose, ripeness out of tho
peach, tho soul from tho body,
God from tho sky.
Thus, to tho millions of young
mon and maidens in tho land comos
tho dream of homo, to bo a glow
ing centro of poaco, beauty and se
curity. It is this vision of home
that redeems tho multitudes from
obscurity, drudgery, squalor and
poverty. But lator on, when life's
battles aro liorcc, and events go
hard with mon, it is tho homo that
enables thom again to bear up a
gainst tho troubles Unat sweep over
lifo like sheeted storms. For it is
thc homo that underlies morals and
is tho spring of light and beauty
for tho soul. Through tho edu
cation of its children, indeed thc
homo sustains divine relations to
ward tho future of society and civ
ilization, llorac also sustains vi
tal relations t? man's thought of
God. Having seen an earthly
j father lovo his wandering child,
?thcmore he needed pity and help,
j man opened his theology to draw
j a black mark across those pages
that made thc heavenly Father
pass by as non-clcct any of his
erring children. An earthly home
full of love for six days in the
week makes it impossible for mau
on tho seventh to think of God
neglecting or passing by one-half
his children through all eternity.
Theology has dono something tor
the home-, but tho home, has done,
vastly more for theology.
Now, friends what wo need is a
revival of hospitality and a return
to the fireside affection. Parents
need to make thoirhomo so beau
tiful that their sons and daughters'
will pass by any club to bring their
friends to their dearly loved home.
Fathers should malte companions
of their sons, and seo to it that no
boy without can draw that son a
way from his father, who is moro
interesting than any or nil com
panions. When this is done, tho
youth will be seen with streaming
oyes and leaping heart and shining
face, ho saw tho "vision splendid*
und will oxclaim, "There is no
place like homo," and sings of hope
For all thc memories of thc
homo that was and all tho dreams
of thc immortal homo that is to bc,
uro but foretokens of that fair lifo
wo soon shall lead. Tho vague
longings for ideal truth, thc yearn
ings for love and sympathy and
satisfaction, oft denied us hore,
ire God's ways of aluring mon in
to tho home that await-s us all.
