PICTURES FOR GIRLS


LITTLE MAMIE.


T HAT'S little Mamie. She is just as happy
a little girl as you ever saw, when she
gets a book in her hands. Uncle Charles has
promised to teach her to read in a few weeks.
then she says she shall know every thing. At
i-resent she only admires the pretty colors, and
wonders what the print says. Mamie can say
several little hymns, and she loves to repeat,
'Jesus, Satiour of my soul,
Let me to thy bosom fly."

LITTLE LANGWA.

TELL1E SOMERS was born in India,
Sarong the heathen. She became very
much attached to Langwa, a heathen child,
and when her parents left India, she begged

lives with Nellie in Philadelphia. You see she
and Nellie are playing with their dolls. She
is a little Christian now, and knows that Christ
died to save her.

THE LITTLE GIRL AND THE DOE.

W ITTLE Minnie's grandfather sent her a
Skid. It was very frolicsome.
"Mamma," said Minnie, one day, "what
makes Dolly love me so ?"
"Because you feed and are kind to her," said
her mother." Who is it that feeds you-gives
you loving friends, and a pleasant home ?"
"God," said little Minnie.
Then how should you love him ?"
Witt all my heart," answered Minnie.

THE STORY.

C LICE is listening to a story. It is about
a poor little lame boy whe love d flowers
dearly. He lived by the sea-shore in a little low
house, but the sun came in and made the white
walls shine. He could not walk, bit had to
be moved in a chair wherever he went. Yet
this dear little boy was always happy because
he loved the Saviour. People often stopped
there and brought him flowers, and i pleased
them to see how good and happy he w-s

WHAT LOVE WILL DO.


UR Creator has made many of his crea.
tures to be easily tamed. Children who
S have the spirit of God in their hearts, when
they are young, try to subdue their bad pas-
sions. These passions are like wild creatures-
but the spirit of love that Jesus gives, will
make them mild and easy to be guided. Strive,
dear little children, to subdue your evil tempers

BESSY AND HER BIRDS.

ITTLE Bessy Clarke said, I don't know
Which bird to give my cousin."
Give her the one you love best," Bessy.
"Well mother, I love this darling on my
shoulder best, I'll give it to cousin, it will make
her so happy!" It made Bessy as happy to
give as it did the cousin to take. Doing good
deeds always makes people happy.






FORPI GIRLS.


MARY AND HER PET.

HERE is Mary Taylor and her pet lamb.
What a dear little creature it is-so white
and clean Mary has just brought it a great
bowl full of nice milk, and the lamb looks as if
it wanted to say "Thank you, kind mistress."
Wherever Mary goes her pet is sure to follow.
When she goes to school the pet goes along,
andwaits at the door until Mary comes out,
then they both frisk home together.

THE FLOWERS.


f" JENNY," said Susy Morris, are those
your flowers ?"
"Yes," said Jenny, "I planted them myself.'
"There's a white rose," said Susy, give me
that for my sick sister."
Now Jenny was very proud of that rose, for
it was her only one. She didn't want to give
it, but she thought of the poor sick girl who
had no garden, and gave her the rose.
"0! thank you, Jenny," said Susy, "how
good you are !" Jenny felt very much happier
a'l day f'r that kind act.
