Every man and woman we meet in society, exhibit, in unmistakable characters the quality of their homes. The wife, the husband, the children bear with them daily a portion of the spirit pervading the little circle from which they have come forth. If the sun shines there a light will be on their countenances; but shadows if clouds are in the sky of home.
If there is disorder, defect of principle, discord among the members, neglect of duty, and absence of kind attentions then the sphere of those who constitute that home, can hardly be beneficial. They will add little to the common stock of good in the social life around them. We need not say how different will be the influence of those whose home-circle is pervaded by higher, purer, and truer principles.
