Some of the best husbands and fathers whom we have known have one or more evenings in the week which they assign to home life. They consider themselves engaged to spend such allotted hours with their wives and children. Why not? What early obligation is more sacred? What claim or engagement should interfere with it? Moreover, these husbands are always inventing games, or topics, or occupations that shall make the allotted time they spend at home as pleasant and instructive as possible. Why not? Should a man devote all his genius to making money, or sermons, or lectures, or inventions, and never try it on home life, on the nurture of his children, on the comfort of his wife? There are various opinions about what is the great question of the day. We think it is the home question. Our homes are to decide the future of civilisation. Let us look to them.
