Oen. George Barstow gave eood advice in a speech on tbe subject of "Home." lic said every man ihould own his qwn home, if he can. That philosophy whieh teIN a man to drift over the uocertain lifc without a home is like a thip out in the open fea, at the hazard of tho storm. A man who owns his home is like a ship that hu arrived in port, and is woored io a mi fu harbor. One man should be no more content to live in a home that is not his own, if he can build one, than one bird should take the risk of hatching in another one' nest ; and for my own part, I would rather be able to own a cottage than to hire a palace. I should say to cvery man, buy a home if you can, and own it. Ifa windfall has come to you, buy a home. Do not let any one tempt you to nut all your i -umin? back into the pool. l'ake out enoufh to bny a home, and buy it. l'ut tbe rest back if you will, gamble on it if you must, but buy the home 6rt. Buy it, and sell it Then tbe roses that Lloom there are yourn ; the clematis and ja.-iuine thal climb upon the porch belong to you. You have planted them, and seen theui grow. When you are at work upon them, you are not working for others.
