The most perfect home I ever SKW was in a little house into the sweet j cense of whose fires went no costly things. A thousand dollars served for i year's living of father, mother, and three children. But the mother was the creator of a home ; her relation with her children was the most beautif ui I have ever seen ; even a diĆ¼l and coinmon-place man was lifted ui) and enabled to do good work for souls by the atmosphere which this woman created. Every inmato of her house involuntarily looked into her face for the key-note of tho day, and it always rang clear. From the rosebud or clover leaf which, in spite of her hardwork, she always found time to put by our plates at breakfast, down to the . story she had on hand tobe read in the evening, there was no intermission of her influence. She had always been and always will be my ideal of a mother, wife, home-maker. Jf to her quick brain, loving lieart, andcxquisite face had been added the appliauces of wealth and the enlai'gements of wider culhu'e, hera WOttld have been the ideal home. As it was, it was the best I have ever seen. -
