that is the inore'w idclv diffused, and
so diffused brings about the best
results. On each of these, the child
ren and what we do for them actually
pays the best. Kor instance, suppose
it sage and a little child are mutual,
like a hoy and his grand-father, as
one unbending simplifies wisdom
to the comprehension of the others
childish fancy. The child drinks in
like Mowers do sunshine, to sensibly
grow- in inherent sweetness, a force
even fieyond the sage himself. Christ

At one season, during the battle r

Was sorely in need, of a messenger
and looked around very anxiously
when a gentleman' in civilian garh
rode up saying: "Can I lie of any
use, Sir?"
Wellington scanned him and aid :
" Yes, take this note to the command
ing officer over there,"" liintlng to a
part of the field where the fighting
just then was hot and fierce. The
gentleman went off, and through
excessive danger delivered the note
safely.

Rowland Hill, the well known

once publicly said: "I have been all

and i' possible destroy that black,
devil A ntinoniitiniiim,"

were clearing their land. Suddenly
" Jatnen taiil lo Henry Jt you will
have your picture Just as you are 1
will pay for It."
"Done," said he, and at once iu '
torn clothes, and faces as black aa"
an African he took the boat some six
miles down to Franklin, and had the
best the artist could produce.
Would you believe It the cute pho

simply on Its own merits it was
worth more than one hundred dol

any exhlqit even though at such cen
