Paul and Well known in Postville having lectured hero Somo years ago had a Call to fill the Brooklyn pulpit Bench or s Church a week ago last sunday and he responded to the Call. There Aro very few ministers in the country that can Como any nearer filling Bencher s place in Tho pulpit than or. Smith. And he in about As Liberal in his views As Bencher was too although a methodist we have expected for a Long Timo that he would to excommunicated from that Church is to is even More Liberal than or. Thomas. Every Man should own his Homo if to can. Tho philosophy which tells a. Man to Drift on Over Tho Ocean of this Uncertain life without a Homo of his own is wrong. The Man who does not own his Home is like a ship out on Tho oper. Sea at Tho hazards of Tho storm. The Man who owns his Home is like a ship that has arrived in port and is moored in a Safo Harbor. Ono Man should no More he Content to live in another Man s House if to ran build one of his own than Ono Bird should annually take the risk of hatching in another Bird s nest and for my parti would rather be Able to own a cottage than to hire a Palace. I often see men eager to Alvet an insurance upon their lives Nna this is Well it is right. But the Man who owns his Homo has effect cd an insurance upon his happiness and the happiness of his family which is As much of him if his mind be right As his own and constitutes his own. I Havo seen the Homes of the people in foreign lauds 1 have heard them talk of their condition and lot in life and this is Tho main theme of though with Mankind everywhere. As i listened to them 1 discovered Why it is that Tho Switzer in his hut in the Alps where the limit of vegetation is reached and the Winter storm howls and rage8 around him is happier than Tho italian tenant on the Beautiful Plains of Lom Bardy amid the Bloom and fragrance of pern canal summer. It is the consciousness of the ownership of a Homo which no matter How the storm rages nobody can take from him and which to can Mako Happy in spite of Tho storm. I would say to every Man buy a Homo if you can and own it. If a Windfall has Como to you buy a Home with it. If you have Laid up enough by toil buy a Home. If you have made Money in stocks buy a Home. Do to tact anybody tempt you to put All your winnings Back into Tho Pool. Put the rest Back if you will. Gamble on it if you must but buy the Home first. Buy it and sell it not. Then the roses that Bloom Thoro Are yours. The jct Sumino and the Cle Matis that climb upon the porch Belo no to y in. You Havo planted them and seen them. Grow.
