In a irue home the whole house
ought to belong to the f.imily, and
be occupied by them. There ou«ht
to be spare chambers for lhe guests,
and room for hospitality, hut there
should he no shut chambers or shut
parlors, sequestered from all domes
tic use. r l here should he no mys
teries in the home, no place of ora
cle there. Every part of the house,
from the cellar to the garret, should
be open and known, not only lighted
and ventilated, but visited, too, by
every member of the household.-—
In a real home the ftmily always
use the best part of their house, and
live in the whole of it. They go in
at the front door, as well as at the
back ; door they go up the wide
staircase, as well as by the narrow
staircase, and they use the soft
cushions, the damask and the vel
vet, as well as the cane seat and the
straw matting. In a genuine house
no part or appendage ot’ the house
ought to be too good for those who
are members of the family, li is
well in the home that each member
should have his own retreat, his own
chamber, the daughters and the
sons and the servants, but not well
that there should be no feeling ot
common right in the house.
And a good home is not within
the walls of the house. The first
home of the first family was -jot in a
house at all, but in a garden. To
realize the home now, there ought to
be a garden attached to it, some
spaceopen to the sky in which green
things and bright things may grow,
and the family may enjoy God’s sun
light together. Some kind of a gar
den every true home ought to have,
a clear space in front or in rear or
Every well ordered home will
have a library. Until this in some
form comes into the house, it has
not the right to be called more than
a lodging-house, or au eating-house,
however sumptuously it may be fur
nislied. How many books are ne
cessary to make a library we .-hall
not venture to say, or whether the
old Puritan measure ot ihe Bible,
lt>»- dictionary and ihe spelling-book
is to be taken as the unii, or rather
Trinity in Unity. B >ok- enough to
meet the ordinary need.- ot inter
course and conversation and refer
ence, “the standard works,’’ enough
to give the impression ot culture and
intelligence ; home oust have these,
even li it has to spare some physi
cal comforts to get them. Books in
the house are a binding influence be
tween members of the family-, the
means of dispersing the clouds, ma
king rainy days useful, and enliven
ing hours of solitude. Aud in a true
home the library will not be “stowed
away” in a closet or dark room, but
will be in the center of the house, in
the meeting-place ot the family,
where the young and old together
catch inspiration in its gathered
hoard. In the true home the library
will be the favorite “silling room.”
Music there ought to be in every
home; not only the music of a moth
er “singing to her clean, lat, rosy
babe,” which the Radical Cobbett
so much glorifies, but the music of
consenting voices and consenting
harps. The head of the house may
be a good steward without anv mu
sical knowledge, but the true father
will know more than the “two
tunes,” between which he cannot de
cide, when he hears his daughter
strike the keys. The best sentiment
of home, connects itself from infan
cy to age with the voice of music.
And home is more fully realized
when all the family are together.
There is a painful absurdity in talk
ing of the pleasure of home when
the children of the house are scat
tered, or the parents are continually
absent. A lather who spends all
his lime in his shop or in his club,
except the hours of the night in
which he sleeps, or the minutes
which he gives for meals, knows
nothing of lhe satisfaction of home.
This is one of the solecisms of
American life, that men of wealth
lavish so much upon their houses*
but are in these houses so little.
genial abodes. For a good part t-f
every week-day, tor a large part of
every Sunday, the parents anu chil
dren ought to be in each other’s
close society. It is more important
for a man of business to be in his
home than to provide merely for its
enlargement. The “club” is »n
place for one who has wife and chil
dren ; it is an institution for the tef-
uge of grim and ‘ forlorn celibates,
and even for them it is of doubtful
value. Genuine home-life implies a
a hearty love for the society in the
house, which will hold this as close
and as long as the children are wil
ling to remain. Home is a place
tor men as much as for Aomen, for
the sons as much as for the daugh
ters. And no one has a true home
when there is any place that he loves
better to be in than his home.—Her

The Old-Fashioned Mother.
Thank God ! some ot us have an
old-fashioned mother. Not a wo
man ot the period, enameled and
painted, with her great chignon, her
curls and bustle; whose white, jew
eled hand's never felt the clasp of ba
by fingers ; but a dear old-fashioned,
sweet voiced iroiher, with eyes in
whose clear depths the love light
shone, and brown hair threaded with
silver, lying smooth upon her faded
cheek. Those dear hands worn with
toil, gently guided our tottering steps
in childhood, and smoothed our pil
lows in sickness ; even reaching out
to us in yearning tenderness, when
her spirit was baptized in the pearly
spray of the tiver. Blessed is life
memory of an old fashioned mother.
It floats to us tiow, like the beauti
ful perfume of some woodland blos
soms. The music of other voices
may he L<st, but the entrancing
memory ot hers wiileehoin our souls
forever. Other faces will fade away
and be forgotten, Gut hers will shine
on until the light from heaven’s por
tals shall glorify our own. When in
the fitful pauses ot busy life our feet
wander back to the old homestead,
and, cross:rg the we 11-worn thrpsli-
hold, stand once more iu the low,
quaint room, so hallowed by her
presence, how the feeling of childish
innocence and dependence comes
over us, and we kneel down iu the
molu-1j sunshine, strcai
mother’s luer, lisping Our Father.’
How many times when the tempter
lures us on has the memory of those
sacred hours, that mother’s words,
her laith and prayers, saved us from
plunging into the deep abyss of sin !
Years have filled great drifts be
tween her and us, but they have not
hidden from our sight the glory of
her pure, unselfish love
now I am rich and beautiful, and
you seek my company. Know that
I chose my friends where pride rest-
eth not, and where modesty and gen
tleness Ibrever reign.
Ashamed and humbled, the blos
soms drooped their fair heads and
spoke not, while the vine twined
lovingly around its true friend, the
tall tree, shaking perfumes from its
crimson flowers, while the sunbeams
played upon its dark-green leaves.
Sub Juga.—Mr. Spillman had just
married a second wife. One day
after tlie wedding, Mr. S. remarked :
“I intend, Mrs. Spillman, to en
large my dairy.”
“You mean our dairy, my dear,”
replied Mrs. Spillman.
“No,” quoth Mr. Spillman, “1 en-
hrge my dairy.”
“Slop—Our dairy,” Mr. Spill
“No, my dairy.”
“Say our dairy—say our,” scream
ed she, seizing the poker.
[ “My dairy, my dairy!” yelled
“Our dairy, our dairy !” scream
ed the wife, emphasizing each word
with a blow on the back of her cring
Mr. Spillman retreated under the
bed. In passing under me bed
clothes his hat was brushed off'. He
remained under cover several min
utes, waiting for a lull in the storm.
At length his wife saw him thrusting
his head out at the foot of the bed
much like a turtle from his shell.
“What are you looking for!” ex
claimed the lady.
“1 am looking lor ouit hat, my
dear,” says he.
Other Irons in the Fire.—A
lady friend ot Dr. Johnson once
asked him for Ins candid opinion of
a woik she had just written, hut not
yet committed to the pre»s, and
begged him to tell her if he thought
it would not succeed, as she had
oilier irons in the fire to lake its
place if it seemed likely to tail. “If
this is the case, madam,” repl.ed the
doctor, after turning over a lew
leaves, “my adv : cd is that you put
this where your other irons are.”

The Seed and the Flowers.
A brown and misshappen seed
fell from a tall, withered vine to the
ground, where it alighted among a
bevy of beautiful blossoms that
were resting iu the long grass.
The poor brown seed shrank from
their haughty and disdainful glan
ces, and remained ashamed and
“Who art thou.” exclaimed the
stately flowers, one aud all, “that
dare penetrate our favorite bower in
so ragged and homely a dress?”
“1 am an emblem of the past,
replied the 3ced, meekly, “anil
have alighted to rest for a time.”
“An embforn of the past,” reiter
ated the blossoms, scornfully.—
“Know, then, that we are the guar
dians of the present. Go away
we have no use for you here.”
The brown seed, glad to escape
such a neighborhood, was taken by
a kind breath of air to the margin
of a silver stream. Here it con
tented itself with quietly dreaming
away, until its mother earth should
receive it into her bosom, and when
summer-returred it would arise
again in new beauty.
Autumn passed, and winter came
with icy breath and cold fingers ;
the blossoms were faded and dead,
but the seed was hidden in the
earth. Summer came once more
with golden sunrays and soft air
Awakened into renewed life after so
long a trance, the blossoms unfolded
their leaves and lifted their proud

Dreaming to Some Purpose.
The following occurrence is said,
by the Hartford Times, to havr actu
ally trunspir d in that city, and not
very long ago:
One of our prominent and wealthy
citizens had purchased a sightly
piece of land outside the city, but
within the town limits, and the pur
chaser was troubled somewhat be
cause he had been told that he could
not gel water, owing to the elevated
position of his land, without digging
further Chinaward than any one
would be likely to undertake. As
we said, this troubled him. He
wanted a well on his place, and al
though a man of great energy—one
wbo never allowed any obsatcle, no
matter how great, to turn him from
his path—he hesitated long before
undertaking his task. The thought
of excavating for a welbhrough halt
a mile (more or less) of solid rock
was enough to deter the stoutest
heart. At this juncture, before he
had resolved upon anything definite,
he dreamed that he had set a gang
of men to digging for a well on 'a
certain (to his rnind) well defined
spot, and that after digging a few
leet, before the rock was reached,
water came in abundance. The
gentieman, though not a bit super
stitious, and holding dreams as light
ly as anybody, was‘more impressed
with bis sleeping vision than he
would have cared to acknoledge.—
At first he would have scouted the
idea of treating the subject seriously
enough to pul a spade into the earth
at the spot indicated in his dream;
but do what he could, he could not
dismiss the dream from his mind,
and finally he resolved to test it but
without any real belief that his
dream would be verified. He set
his men to work, and strange to
relate, after digging fifteen feet,
water abundantly flowed, and
thus the dream fully came to pass.
We have seen ihe well with oar
own eyes, and the dreamer, wbo
is a gentleman of undoubted veraci
ty, assures us that our story is
