\W ITHHOLD not good from them to whom it is due,when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.Proverbs, chapter xvii. v. 27.You will see in this picture, that even the young and poor may helpothers; these little children are doing just as kind an action as if they gavemoney to the poor woman. They are givinj her their time and toil. And howpleased and happy they look Our Blessed Lord says that if we give only acup of cold water in His Name we shall not lose our reward. Once upon atime, some little school-girls in Paris were walking near a sentinel on thewalls. The man begged a cup of cold water from them. He was ill, he said,and could not leave his post. An English child ran and brought him some.Only a few nights afterwards the same soldier saved her from being killedat the risk of his own life. Thus she had her reward !1E NTER not into the path of the wicked, and go not in theway of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it-turn from itand pass away.-Proverbs, chapter iv. v. 14.I HOPE the little boy in this picture will mind his mother, and keep awayfrom those wicked boys who are fighting, and from the idle men who arelooking on-the very geese seem ashamed of them It is very dangerousto be friendly with bad people. They soon teach us to be like themselves;and even if we are not quite as bad as they are, we should be thought so, forwe are generally judged by our friends. Keep away from naughty boys atschool. I once heard of a lad who was put in prison as a thief, because hehad been walking with thieves, and they had put the thing they had stoleninto his pocket to hide it; thus they escaped at his cost. Remember that"Evil communications corrupt good manners."I The Baldwin Library^. /T VmWOWynBQmid

H E that gathereth in summer is a wise son; but he thatsleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.Proverbs, chapter x. v. 5.THE sun is very hot in the sky, and George is lazy and has laid down onthe wheat, and fallen fast asleep. I am afraid such an idle, self-indulgent boywill never do any good for himself; and that his father will be quite ashamedof such a " poor thing " of a son. If boys will not bear a little discomfortthey will never grow into brave and prosperous men. I am sure this lazy boywill never make a man like Dr. Livingstone, who bears the heat of Africa thathe may do good; nor like brave Captain McClintock, who did not fear thecold North Pole. No wonder that (as GOD'S Book tells us) his father will feelashamed of him! Do not be like him. Learn to "Endure hardness as agood soldier of Christ."A RIGHTEOUS man regardeth the life of his beast.Proverbs, chapter xii. v. io.KIND-HEARTED people always take care of animals. I like to see a littlegirl feeding chickens. GOD cares for the poor beasts, and has made manylaws about them. We must never be cruel to anything GOD made; or Hewill be much displeased. "The cattle upon a thousand hills seek their meatfrom GOD; " and He cares even for the poor little birds. A Welsh princeonce killed a faithful hound he had, because he believed that the dog had slainhis baby son. But he found that he had been mistaken, and that the faithfulGelert had, in fact, killed the wolf that would have devoured his babe. Hisgrief was so great when he learned this, that he reared a stately tomb to hispoor dog, which is still to be seen in Wales, and is called Beth Gelert, thatis, "Gelert's Grave." Remember that GOD will call you to account for everyact of cruelty shown to His creatures.

A SOFT answer turneth away wrath; but grievous wordsstir up anger.-Proverbs, chapter xv. v. I.IF you wish to be a great man and to rule over others, you must firstlearn to rule yourself. Impatience, passion, and anger are sad sins, and verydegrading to a creature who can reason. The great Sir Isaac Newton wasnever seen angry. Once his little dog threw down a taper or candle amonghis papers. It set fire to them, and thus destroyed the labour of years.What a passion the little boy in the picture would have been in, if it hadhappened to him! I fear he would have beaten the dog. But Sir Isaac onlysaid, gently and sadly, " Oh, Diamond, Diamond you little know the mischiefyou have done!" Diamond was the dog's name. This good man wouldhave been ashamed to fret even over so great a loss. Do not let triflesmake you angry.DB ETTER is little with the fear of the LORD, than great trea-sure and trouble therewith.-Proverbs, chapter xv v. 6.IN the fine house, which you see at the back of this picture, there lives aman whose only son is just dead. Do you see them carrying poor Baby to thegrave? In the cottage lives a poor woman who has many happy, strongchildren. Which is the happier-the poor woman or the rich man? I am.sure I know that you will answer-the poor woman And it is well to remem-ber that riches cannot give happiness; that many a sad heart is to be foundin a grand house, and many a merry one in a poor cottage. But neither ina cottage, nor in a grand house, can people be happy unless they love andfear GOD."Love GOD, and every thing He sends will beA blessing, whether known or hid from thee."3

LEASANT words are as honeycomb, sweet to the soul.Proverbs, chapter xvi. v. 24.ONE of the most delicious kinds of food is provided for us by the honey-bees. A honeycomb is as nice as it is beautiful to look at; and there is greatnourishment in honey also. When King Saul's good son Jonathan was onceweary and faint with hunger, so that he could hardly see, some honey, whichhe found in the woods, made him quite strong again. And kind words willoften give strength to a weary heart, and help us to go on patiently in thepath of our duty. You remember the old fable of diamonds and toads.Take care that all your words are drops of honey, and your mouth a honey-comb. Words win even more love than deeds do; an ungracious kindnessdone to us is not so welcome as a kind word lovingly spoken, or a tender,pitying expression when we are in grief.T H E hoary head is a crown of glory if it be found in the wayof righteousness.-Proverbs, chapter xvi. v. 3I.A PIOUS, aged man ought to be reverenced by every one; GOD'S wordtells us that His aged saints wear a crown of glory even on earth. The wisestof the heathen, even, reverenced old age. One day a very old man came intoone of the Greek theatres. The Spartans all stood up to receive him, andgave him a seat. The Athenians, who had not moved, saw how good thisconduct was, and cheered the Spartans. The old man cried, " The Atheniansknow what is right; but the Spartans do it." Now we, also, know what isright. Let us do it, and reverence the grey hairs of a godly old man; itwould be a shame if the heathen Greeks were to set a better example thanthose who have GoD's own word to teach them how the aged should betreated by the young.4

' H E that hath pity upon the poor lendeth to the LORD, andthat which he hath given will He repay again.Proverbs, chapter xix. v. 17.How very good it is of our Heavenly Father to care so tenderly for thepoor; and what a blessing it is for us thus to be able to give to GOD Himself!I will tell you a little Greek fable about this promise. There was a certaindwelling which seemed' greatly blessed by GOD. A traveller who had seen itin its happy days, came back there, and found it falling to decay, and only anold porter sitting at the gates. "Why, what has caused this?" he asked."Ah, sir," said the porter, " Once two brothers dwelt here; one was called'Give,' and the other Given unto you.' Whilst they lived together all wentwell; but Give' went away, and then 'Given unto you' died!" Do youunderstand this allegory? It means that GOD blesses the store of thecheerful giver.H EARKEN unto thy father, and despise not thy motherwhen she is old.-Proverbs, chapter xxiii. v. 22.THE little children in this picture look very good. I am sure they lovetheir poor father and mother very much. They do not forget that their fatherworks very hard to get them bread; and that their dear mother has' takencare of them ever since they were babies. Little children may be greatcomforts to their parents. I knew a little girl once who used to scrub thefloor, and dust the house for her poor mother; and when other children wereat play, good little Nelly would run out into the coppice, and pick up sticksto make a bright fire against the time when her father would, come home.You can all help your parents a little; or, at least, you can meet them withsmiles and good-tempered faces, and make them happy by being good.5

A S cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a farcountry.-Proverbs, chapter xxv. v. 25.WATER is a very precious thing in the East. In that part of the worldthere are miles and miles of sand without any springs; or if one is to befound, the water is generally salt and bitter. English children would notdrink it, but the Arabs, who have never tasted better, think it very good.Once a poor Arab travelled a great many miles to carry some of this badwater to his king, the Caliph of Bagdad, to whom he thought it would be atreat. The Caliph tasted it, thanked him, gave him a present, and bade himgo home at once, and not stay an hour in Bagdad. This order seemed unkind;but the Caliph meant it very kindly. He feared if the poor man tastedthe waters of Euphrates he would no longer be content with the springsof the desert.F AVOUR is deceitful' and beauty is vain, but a woman thatfeareth the LORD she shall be praised.Proverbs, chapter xxxi. v. 30.THIS young lady is come to read to a poor girl at the hospital. It isfar better, 'GD himself tells us, to be good and kind than to be beautiful.Once in France there came a sad time when many people were put to deathby wicked men who ruled the land. All the girls of one village were to bedrowned because they had loved their king; but the soldiers were to beallowed to take wives from them first. A soldier chose the very ugliestgirl of all for his wife. "Why do you not save the prettiest? " asked hiscomrades. " No," he said, "this ugly girl has the kindest heart, and that isworth far more than beauty."-And then he told his friends how once, whenhe had fled from a lost battle, this girl had sheltered him in her poor home,and had shared her last crust with him.6
