Gen. Gcorge Baratow (jave tr"O'J advice in a ppeech on the subject of "Home." He said every man should own his own home, if' he can. That philosophy which telln a man to drift over the unceitain life without a horue, is like a ship out in the open M-ii. at tbe hazard of the storm. A man who owns his home is like a ship that ha arrived in port, and is inoored in a safe harbor. One man should be no more content to live in a home that is not his own, if he can tiuild one, than one bird should take the risk of hatohing in another one's nest; and, for my own part, I would rather be able to own a cottage than to hire a palaoe. I would say to every man, buy a home ifyou cao, and own it. If a windfall has come toyou, buy a home. Do not let anybody tempt you to put all your earnings back into the pool. Take out enough to buy a home, and buy it. Put the rest back ifyou will ; gamble on it ifyou must; hut buy the home first. Buy it, and sell it not. Than the roses that bloom there are ynurs , the clematis and jasmine that cliujb upi'ii the porch belong tóyou. You have planied ihcui, and seen them grow. When you are at work upon them, you are not working for others. If there are children, there are flowers within thu house and without. Buy a home.
