Anna Thomas was a very
small girl. She was only
three years old. Anna was
a very good child. When
her mama was busy, and
could not attend to her lit
tle wants, Anna would not
tease her, and cry as some
children do, Oh, no. She
would take her little piece
work, and her needle and
thread, and then go and
sit down upon her little
chair, and sew and be as
quiet as a young lady.

In the picture you can see
little Anna at the table. Her
father is helping her to a
little tea, or warm milk and
water. Anna had a little
brother younger than her-
selfi Anna loved her little
brother very much. She
also loved her father and

mother very much. And
when she was asked to do
any thing, she was always
ready, and obeyed immedi-
Little Anna went to Sun-
day school, and though she
was very young, yet, by
studying hard she was soon
able to recite her scripture
lessons, and to learn little
hymns. Thus she filled her
mind with good instruction
while some other little girls
would spend their time in
idleness, or perhaps be en-
gaged in mischief. Anna
was very seldom seen idle,
or without her book.

One day little Anna was ta-
ken very sick, and her mo-
ther thought she was going
Sto die. Then it was a great
comfort to Anna to think of
the instruction she had re-
ceived in the Sunday school
and to repeat the hymns she
had learnt. Anna had learnt

one hymn which she was
very often repeating. We
suppose she liked to re-
peat it because she loved
her little brother so much.
It was a sweet little hymn,
and that you may learn it,
we will here print it for
our little readers. Here it
is. We wish every little
girl and boy who reads this
book, to learn it by heart.
It is called
Love between Brothers and Sisters.
Whatever brawls disturb the street,
There should be peace at home;
Where sisters dwell and brothers
Quarrels should never come.
Birds in their little nests agree,
And 'tis a shameful sight,

When children of one family
Fall out, and chide, and fight.
Hard names at firsthand angry words
Which are but noisy breath,
MaI \ crolw to clubs & naked swords;
To murder and to death.
The devil tempts one mother's son
To r;2i uainst another;
So wicktl C %in waIs hUrried on,
Till he had killed his Irother.
The wise will make their anger cool,
At least before 'tis night;
But in the bosom of a fool
It burns till morning light.
Pardon, O Lord, our childish rage,
Our little brawls remove;
That, as we grow to riper age,
Our hearts may all be love.

In a few days Anna got bet-
ter of her sickness, and was
able to go to school again,
as usual. One afternoon she
invited her cousins, Hen-

ry and William Thompson
to come and spend the af-
ternoon with her. Her ma-
ma had bought her a little
book the last time she was
in Cincinnati. It was called
the CHILD'S BIBLE,-a beau-
tiful little book it was.

Here is a picture of Anna
and her cousins reading
the little Bible
