Description

Excerpt from The Complete Home, an Encyclopaedia of Domestic Life and Affairs: The Household, in Its Foundation, Order, Economy, Beauty, Healthfulness, Emergencies, Methods, Children, Literature, Amusements, Religion, Friendships, Manners, Hospitality, Servants, Industry, Money, and History

This Book - the product of years of careful investigation, of actual experiences, and of a profound veneration for the Divinely instituted Home - undertakes to show how every sound man and woman may safely marry, how every family may have a competence, how every home may go on from good to better, and how each household may be not only gladsome in itself, but a spring of strength and safety to the country at large.

This book treats of the individual as set in Households it regards the household as a unit in its affections, aims, success. The rights, duties, privileges, preferences of every member of the family are dis cussed. The Home itself, in its practical working, its food, clothing and shelter, its earnings, savings and spendings, its amusements, industries and culture, will be found faithfully portrayed.

There is no thought more beautiful and far-reaching than this of the solidarity or oneness of the Family; here, man is indissolubly bound to his fellows. The individual is solitary, but God setteth the solitary in families. The stream of time is crowded with the ships of Households, parents and children, youth and infancy, age with its memories, childhood with its fancies, youth with its loves, maturity with its cares. A beautiful picture represents such a life-scene. The Household bound for the same eternity, trying the same fates.

In childhood's hour, with careless joy Upon the stream we glide, With youth's bright hopes, we gayly speed, To reach the other side.
