OUR BABY.

HAT do you think we have got at our
house ? You can't guess -so I will tell
you. It is a little baby, and his name is Johnnie !
He looks so sweet, that I love him very much.
He has blue eyes, but only-a very little hair. And
his hands oh, how beautiful they are, with such
tiny nails! His fingers are just as fat as they can
be. When I take hold of his hand, and say, "Lit-
tle brother!" how he does jump and crow, and want
to come to me! But Susan will not allow it, for
she says I shall let him fall.
I am glad that we do not live in India, where
they throw little babies to the crocodiles.





6 CIIILDIEN'S PICTURE BOOK.


THE CRADLE.

NE day my father brought home a cradle for
our baby. It is made of willow, like a bas-
ket, and I can rock it very easily.
I have read that in some countries they have
no cradles. So the mother takes a long piece of
cloth, and ties the two ends to a tree. Then she
puts her baby in it, and the wind rocks it while
she is at work. Once, when a baby was asleep,
a large bird came and pecked its face. Its mother
heard it cry, and drove away the bird. I sup-
pose that God watched over the baby, and saved
it from being killed.
I shall ask him every day to take care of our
baby--dear little Johnnie!






THE NURSERY. 7

















JOHNNIE'S BATH.

UR Johnnie gets a real good washing in a
tub every morning. Sometimes, when the
water is cold, he don't much like it; but mother
tells Susan not to omit it, because it will make him
grow strong. After he is washed, she rubs him
with a towel, which makes him nice and warm.
I went with my mother one morning to the
"Home for the Friendless," and we saw more than
a dozen babies washed. They were orphan chil-
dren. When they were dressed, the nurse put
some of them on rocking horses two on a horse.
They were very much pleased.






8 CHILDREN'S PICTURE BOOK.


BEGINNING TO WALK.

f ERE is our Johnnie, just beginning to walk.

S Don't he look funny ? He wants to go to
mother, but he is afraid. Mother calls him to
come, and holds out both hands. He knows that
she will not let him fall, so he starts right off; but
I think he would fall if she did not catch him.
Mother says that is just the way with every
body in the world. God made us, and we are his
children. If he did not watch over us every day,
and take care of us, we should die. She says we
ought to trust God, just as the baby trusts her.

RIDING GRANDPA'S CANE.


" ET up, Bonnie, get up, Bonnie!" What a

r noise little brother does make! He has a

whip in his hand, and is riding grandpa's cane all

over the house.

Do hear him! "Whoa, sir! Get up, horsy!"

Mother says, that little boys must play somewhere,

and he can not play in the yard because the snow

is so deep.

Johnnie used to play on the Sabbath; but he

does not do so since he learned my verse, -

"I must not work, I must not play,
Upon God's holy Sabbath day."

FISHING IN THE WASH-TUB.
AST summer I went with father and mother
to the sea shore. We used to go out in the
boat every day, and catch fish. Johnnie wanted
to fish too; but father said the fish would pull
him out of the boat.
When Susan was washing clothes, Johnnie got
grandpa's cane, and fastened to it a string and a
crooked pin. Then he dropped it in the tub, and
made believe he was catching fish.

THE CUT FINGER.

NE day Johnnie found a knife open on the
table, and he thought he would try to make
a little boat. He had seen the larger boys using
their jackknives, and he wanted to do what they
did.
He went out to the wood-shed, and got a piece
of pine wood, and began to whittle; but very soon
he cut his finger, and then he ran to mother, crying
with pain.

MY VISIT.

AM going to see Bessie White. I love her
A better than any of the other girls. My aunt
likes Bessie, too, for she says that she is a good
girl, and always tries to do right.
What a nice time we shall have! I have got a
new book. It is, The First Lessons of Gentleness
and Truth. I have read it all through; and I shall
like to read it again with Bessie. The sun is very
hot, but my hat is better than a parasol, because I
do not have to carry it in my hand.
Bessie lives near the church where I go every
Sabbath. She and I are in the same class in the
Sabbath School. We have a dear teacher, who is
always pleasant and good to us. How delightful
it is to learn about Jesus and heaven!
j-






TIE VISIT. 13













DRINKING TEA.

" OUR mother is very kind, Bessie, to let us
drink tea by ourselves."
"Yes, mother is always kind. She says she
likes to see us happy. When we have washed the
dishes, and put up the table, we will read your
new book. Do you like reading better than play-
ing with dolls?"
"I-like both. I did not bring my dolls, because
I thought that you would like the book best."
"So I should; and mother says we may read it
aloud to her. After that she will tell us a story.
She tells beautiful stories; but I think the best ones
are from the Bible. She told me about Joseph,
and Samuel, and Daniel, and, best of all, about
Jesus, who was once a little babe in the manger."

PLAYING IN THE WOODS.

VOW nice it is to live so near the woods!
Bessie, and I, and her two cousins have
come to play under this old tree. There are
plenty of berries all about us, but they are not
ripe yet. I suppose there are children who have
never been in the woods at all.
A poor woman came to my aunt's door to beg.
She had a baby, and she set it down on the grass.
The grass was green, and the baby put its hand
out, and felt of it. Then it rolled over, and laid
its face on it. It seemed pleased with the grass.
I suppose it never saw any before.

THE FLOWERS.


RS. WHITE, do look at our beautiful flow-
ers! Bessie -and I gathered them in the
woods. All little girls love flowers don't they?
My sister Jennie did. She is dead, now, you
know; but mother says she lives in heaven, where
the flowers are the sweetest, and never fade.
She used to gather flowers every day, and carry
them to her teacher. Mother had a beautiful rose
tree, and often gave my little sister one of the roses.
She died before she was six years old; and when
she was laid in the coffin, mother put a bud from
off the rose tree in her hand.

THE VISIT.






16 CHILDREN'S PICTURE BOOK.


MRS. WHITE READS TO US.

ERE are Bessie and I standing by her moth-
er while she reads this story:-
"A company of young persons were traveling in
Ireland, and wanted a guide. A little girl, named
Grace O'Gara, offered to show them up the moun-
tains, saying that she knew the paths, for she went
up with the goats every day.
The travelers liked Grace, and were pleased to
hear her talk. She loved the Lord Jesus; and
when they asked questions, she answered them
from the Bible, which she learned while watching
the goats. By her constant reference to the Bible,
they were led to read it, and became Christians.
"'Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings Thou
hast perfected praise.'"







THIE COUNTRY.


MY UNCLE'S FAMILY.


T is vacation in school, and my father has sent
me to visit at my uncle's in the country. They
have a baby, too, not so old as our Johnnie. She
is a little bit of a thing, but she knows me already.
Auntie sits by her cradle, and sings,
Hush, my dear, lie still and slumber,"
and she goes right to sleep.
Auntie is very kind, and plays with us every day.
But how I do love to sit with uncle, and hear him
tell about Moses that was put into the ark of bul-
rushes, and Daniel who was cast into the lion's den!

THE MORNING WALK.

OU don't know Betty, that lives at my un-
cle's do you ? She goes out to walk with
me and Allie almost every day. Allie is my little
cousin Alice; she is two years old.
Auntie says it will make us strong to walk, and
I really think it does, for I and Allie grow bigger
every day. Betty says.we must be good, or God
will not love us; and I mean to be. I have learned
a long verse in my new Bible: Suffer little chil-
dren to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of
such is the kingdom of heaven."

FEEDING THE CHICKENS.


NE, two, three, four, five; how many chick-
ens we have got, Tommy! Auntie says
we may have them for our own. I wish that great
rooster and the black hen would not eat up all the
corn. Poor little chickies! If you don't eat faster
you will not get much breakfast.
Uncle says we must not be greedy when we eat.
Johnnie May ate so much cake one day when his
mother was away, that he was sick for a long time;
the doctor was afraid lie would die.

MAKING GARDEN.


SAND Susie have a garden of our own, all to
ourselves. We planted a good many seeds,
but they do not all come up.
Uncle and aunt have come to see us. They
call us their little gardeners! You ought to see
our rose-bush. It has a great many roses on it.
And then we have seven pots with nice plants in
them. How nicely they grow! We must put
them in the shade, or the hot sun will kill them.
My aunt says our hearts are like a garden, and we
must not let the weeds grow in it.

SCHOOL.


a HERE do you think I have been to-day?
I have been at school. Some of the schol-
ars are almost as large as the teacher. Some are
very small, and only just beginning to read.
Miss Lane looked very pleasant. In the morn-
ing, she told us to take our Bibles, and turn to the
first chapter of Genesis. Then she read and talked
about how God made the world. Then she prayed
that we might be good children, just as mother
does at home.

THE FAULT.


6 H dear! I meant to be so good, and now I
1 have done something that Miss Lane has for-
bidden. I don't like to tell what it is. She keeps
a book with all our names in it, and she has given
me a bad mark. I must cry, but I should not have
thought she would. I don't like her as well as I did.
And the girls all looked at me. Perhaps they
will not play with me any more. But they seemed
sorry, and so did Miss Lane. Well, I suppose she
thought she must mark me. She asked me if I
thought God would be pleased with me.

THE CONFESSION.


DID not mean to tell auntie about the bad
Mark. She is so kind, and I did not want to
make her feel badly. When she asked me, "How
has my little girl got along to-day?" I could not
keep fi-om crying. And then I told her all about it.
"Miss Lane gave us a short lesson, and said we
must repeat every word perfectly. I did not know
mine, and so I looked in the book.
"Oh, auntie, I never will try to deceive again.
Will you forgive me, and ask God to forgive me, too?"

THE BEGGAR CHILDREN.


SWENT to the door one morning to see the
snow that fell in the night; and there were
widow Jones' little boy and girl just coming up
the steps. Their clothes were ragged, and they had
no stockings, and but very poor shoes. Their mother
was very sick, and had sent them here to ask for food.
My aunt is kind to every body; so she filled their
basket. Afterward she went to see Mrs. Jones, and
carried some nice broth. The doctor says, if aunt
takes care of her, she will soon be well again.

THE SMOKER.


t, OW that boy looks who is standing by the
post! He has no coat; and I do not think
he combs his hair very often. Hie has a cigar in his
mouth, and is smoking. I should not think that
boys would like tobacco. I do not like to smell it.
The gentleman who is passing with his sons sees
this poor lad, and bids them take warning by him.
He tells them that tobacco is a slow poison, that it
makes a man sickly and poor, and leads to intem-
perance

STAGED.


SUNTIE, see that aged man and woman! How
Very old they are! I met him in the market
the other day. He gave me a large, red apple, and
said he hoped God would bless me. I love old
people, when they are good don't you, auntie ? It
makes me think of a verse in my Sabbath school
lesson : "The hoary head is a crown of glory, when
found in the way of righteousness." My teacher
told us the meaning. She said it was living as God
wishes to have us, and obeying his commands.

THE TEA TABLE.


OW nice it is to have the tea all ready when
we come home! We are very hungry, and
the bread and butter are good. Susie forgot to brush
her hair, and auntie tells her she had better do it
before she comes to the table. Poor Trip is hungry,
though he waits quietly by my aunt's chair, until
she is ready to feed him.
But the best of all is the singing. We always
sing at my uncle's after tea, at evening prayers.
To-night Susie and I are going to sing,
"I want to be an angel."

THE SHEEP.

SY aunt told me and Tommy that, after break-
Sfast, she would show us something that
would please us. So we got ready in a minute, and
she took us out through the yard, up the street,
and over the hill, and there we saw uncle's sheep.
There are ever so many of them!
How the lambs did play! They would throw
each other down, then spring up again and scamper
away across the field.
Some of the sheep are very large, and their wool
will soon be cut off and made into clothing.

.SN'T it too bad ? Our lammie Carlo has been
sold to the butcher, and carried off to be killed!
Tommy and I cried, and Susie and Betty cried, too.
It was so cunning, and played with us every day.
It followed us all about the house. Uncle said it
had become troublesome, and he would give us
another.
My aunt says that the lamb is a type of Christ.
"He was led as a lamb to the slaughter." It was
for us, because we are sinners.

BUILDING THE NEST.


SOW busy these two birds are! It is a beau-
tiful morning in spring, and they have found
a nice place for their little home on that branch of
the tree.
I hope no bad boy will find it, and rob them of
their treasure. I am sure our Johnnie would not
be so cruel.
God takes care of the birds. He notices even
the fall of a little sparrow, as the Bible tells us.
The kindly-feeling and generous boy will never
disturb a bird's-nest.

THE SHADY PATH.


IHEN the Sabbath morning came, the sun
shone brightly, and the air was fresh and
sweet. "Come, Annie," said her aunt, "we will
walk to church this morning;" and soon they were
on their way.
"What a nice, shady path this is, aunty!" said
Annie; "how cool and pleasant!" Just then a
robin opened his little mouth, and sung sweetly.
If birds sing praises to their Creator, much more
should we, to whom he has given souls that will
never die.

GOING TO CHURCH.





32 CHILDREN'S PICTURE BOOK.


THE WALK.


S S Annie and her aunt walked to church by the
pleasant path, they talked about the Sabbath.
"Do you know, my dear, that the Saviour rose
from the grave on the morning of Sunday, or the
Christian Sabbath ?"
"Yes, auntie, I have read about it in my Testa-
ment, and I like Sabbath days, for then I always
go to church and Sabbath school."
All good people love the Sabbath and the house
of God. The Psalmist says, 'A day in thy courts
is better than a thousand.' God is displeased with
those who dishonor his holy day.

GOING TO CHURCH,


THE GRAVEYARD,

" HALL we go through the graveyard, auntie ?"
Yes, dear, if you would like to do so. Our
graveyard is a pleasant spot. Do you know that
two of your cousins are buried there ?"
"No, auntie. Will you show me the place?"
"This is where your dear grandfather was laid,
and there beside him are the graves of your little
cousins. But it is only their bodies that were put
in the ground. Their souls never die. When
Lillie died, she said, "I want to go to heaven now,
but I want you to come too, mother." We believe
that both she and Jennie are with the Saviour.

THE CHURCH.


S Annie and her aunt drew near the church,
they found many others who were going
there too; so they went in quietly with the rest,
and took a seat. The minister was already in the
pulpit, and a lady was playing on the organ while
the people were coming in. A nice carpet covered
the floor, and every thing looked very neatly.
In some parts of this country where but few
people live, there are no churches, but sometimes
there is a Sabbath school: I have heard of children
who went more than five miles in the winter to
attend one. Would you do it ?






GOING TO CHURCH.


A PILGRIM.


" O 0you remember, Annie, what the minister
Said about our being pilgrims ?"
"Yes, aunty. He said we are all going on a
journey through this world to another country.
The journey is our life, and the country where
we are going is heaven. I have a beautiful story
about it, called the Pilgrim's Progress.

THE BARREN FIG TREE.


" HAT did the minister say about the fig
tree, Annie ?"
"He said that we should not be like the barren
fig tree, that had leaves, but no fruit. We must
always do good things, and think good thoughts,
and that would be bringing forth good fruit."






GOING TO CHURCH.


THE BIBLE.


M Y New Year's present from father was a
beautiful Bible, and I have begun to read it
through. How many nice stories there are in it!
I can not tell the number. Father says that if I
ask God to make me wise, as Solomon did, he will
do it. But I think I had rather be like little Samuel.
When God called him, he said, "Speak, Lord, for thy
servant heareth.' I wish God would speak to me;
but he don't speak to people now, only in the Bible.
I like to read all the stories, but those about
Jesus I like best.

OUR VESSEL.


T HIS is a fine vessel. How trim it looks, with
its tall masts, and white sails, and many ropes!
It is all new, and is just setting out on a long
voyage. I am going in it. Would you like to go
with me ? She has many people on board. There
are the captain and his two mates, the carpenter,
and ten sailors. These take care of the vessel and
passengers.
Do you know that our life is like a voyage ? God
is our Captain. If we go on in the way he leads
us, he will bring us all safely to our heavenly
home.






SCENES OF TRAVEL. 39


THE SAILOR BOY.

ERE is Tom Halyard climbing up the
Shrouds of the vessel. He is one of the
sailor boys on board our ship. He has been sent
aloft to fasten some ropes that have got loose
among the rigging. You see he is looking back,
to hear what the mate says. "Ay, ay, sir," he
shouts in reply, and away he goes. He does not
wait, and say, I don't want to," as some boys do.
He obeys at once. Just so should we boys do to
our parents, for the Bible says, Children, obey
your parents in the Lord, for this is right."

THE NAUTILUS.


O you see that curious thing sailing upon the
water yonder? What can it be ? It looks
something like a snail, but it has long legs hanging
down upon each side, and a pair of sails standing
upright.
This wonderful little sailor is called a Nautilus.
His shell is the house in which he lives. It is very
light, and is easily carried along by the wind, or

thus given him the means of escaping from danger.
How good he is to every living thing!

THE SWORD-FISH.

ERE is another of the inhabitants of the
sea, not so pretty as the nautilus. It is the
Sword-fish. He gets his name from his long bony
snout, as hard as ivory. This is a terrible weapon.
Even the whale is afraid of it, and is often killed
by it.
See him dart through the water. There, he has
struck the vessel, though not very hard! Some.
times the animal pierces the bottom with his
sword, and sinks the vessel. An old ship was
once being repaired, and one of these swords
was found sticking right through her solid tim-

THE CAPTAIN'S INSTRUMENTS.


,HEN we are out on the ocean, far away
From the land, how do you suppose the
captain knows which way to steer the vessel? I
will tell you. This long instrument that you see
on a stand is a telescope. It magnifies objects
which are far away, and thus enables us to see
them. Then there is the globe, on which is traced
the land and water. Besides these he has a com-
pass, which shows which way we are going.
The Bible is our telescope. Through it we can see
heaven. It is our globe. It shows us what to
seek, and what to shun. It is our compass, too.
It never varies, but guides us always, if we obey it,
to the port of peace.

will say, "Keep off, or I will shoot you !"
Perhaps missionaries have come to this island.
If they have, they will teach the people to love God,
to give up their wickedness, and love the Lord
Jesus Christ. Then we shall have nothing to fear.

T HE captain is giving a hat to the chief. What
do you think he will do with it? He can not
wear it, unless he takes off his feathers. All savages
like to wear feathers and other ornaments.

tended church, and was much amused as he saw
one man walk in with the skirts of a coat tied
around him, and another with only one boot on.

carried away every thing that was not made fast.
There are people on the land, but they can afford
us little help. We fear that the vessel will break
up. Is there any one on board who is willing to
risk his life to save the rest ?
Jesus Christ has done far more than this. We
are all sinners; but he died for us.

OUR ISLAND HOME.

ORE than a year has passed since our vessel
was wrecked. We have been hard at work,
and now you see our pleasant island home. We
have formed ourselves into families, each living in
a house by itself.
The large house with a veranda in front is our
chapel. Here the friendly people come every Sab-
bnth, and we teach them from the Bible. We think
that some of them love the Saviour, and try to
please him. We are happy here, but we should
like to see our native land again.





GOING HOME.


E are now starting for home in a vessel
that stopped at the island to get cocoa-
nuts and oranges. The seamen were surprised
when they found white men here. In going out
of the bay, the vessel ran aground. So we threw
out ropes, which the natives seized and pulled
with all their might. But the people are sorry to
have us go, and some accompany us in their boats
a long distance.

T HFE Rhinoceros is a large, clumsy animal,
having a shape somewhat like that of a hog.

resist a spear, and it is said even a musket ball
can not pierce it. Upon its snout is a very stout
and sharp horn of ivory, sometimes two.
The rhinoceros often engages in battle with the
elephant. Its thick hide defends it from the power-
ful blows of its adversary's trunk, and the thrust
of his great tusks. Sometimes he will dash at the
elephant and rip open his side with his sharp horn.
Many think that the unicorn mentioned in the

promises to give Robbie all sorts of good things
if he will go with him, and Robbie hesitates. He
ought to say, "No, I will not go with you, and dis-
obey my kind mother;" but he wants to go, and he
wants to stay. "A wise son maketh a glad father,
but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother."

THE CAGE.

'HO has not seen a squirrel house with its
wire wheel ?
How funny the squirrel looks running on the
wires! Now he is up, then he is down. When he
is tired, he darts into the house and gets some-
thing to eat, and then comes out again. Now he
sits still, his little bright eyes looking right at you,
with both cheeks full, and nibbles away at his
nuts.
God has given strong teeth to these little crea-
tures, so that they can bite nuts and get the meats.
In the summer, they lay up food for the winter.

yours."

come out again."

when I get bigger. Shan't I be a useful little girl ?
