TO THE CHILDREN.
IN Old Times knights and brave men frequently chose a
Motto which they honored and held as a Rule and a
Reminder in daily life. This Conduct-Motto was often painted
on the shield, engraved upon the seal ring, or embroidered upon
the banner or the scarf; and thus it was constantly in sight and
In this little Almanac, this little everyday book designed for
a handy pocket reference and school-desk companion, there is a
Birthday Line from the poets for each of you, which you may
adopt as a Conduct-Motto, and if you say it over and over and
keep it in mind it will surely help you in becoming as strong
and as true as the grandest men and women you have ever read
But, though your own Birthday-Motto is specially your very
own, you can have a Daily Conduct-Motto also. There is a
fresh one for each morning. Read it, hold it up high in your
thoughts, and honor it in your deeds. E. F.
rd.' L.ISq p;
ANUS am I; oldest of potentates !
Forward I look and backward, and below
I count, as god of avenues and gates,
The years that through my portals come and go.
I block the roads and drift the fields with snow;
I chase the wild-fowl from the frozen fen;
My frosts congeal the rivers in their flow,
My fires light up the hearths and hearts of men.

THE flowers have with the swallows fled,
And silent is the cricket;
The red leaf rustles overhead,
The brown leaves fill the thicket.
The mild October days are gone,
Sweet nutting-time, and kite-time;
With frost and storm comes slowly on
The year's long wintry night-time.
But while the mellow light departs,
The household draws together,
And ever warmer grow our hearts
As colder grows the weather.
