Our beloved Brother Simeon Newton, and his little daughter Mary,

This Volume is affectionately inscribed.

Make your home a little Eden ;

Imitate her smiling bowers ;
Let a neat and simple cottage,

Stand among bright trees and flowers.
There, what fragrance and what brightness,

Will each blooming rose display ;
Here a simple vine-clad arbor

Brightens through each summer day.

There each heart will rest contented,

Seldom wishing far to roam ;
Or, if roaming, still will cherish

Memories of that pleasant home.
Such a home makes man the better-

Pure and lasting its control :
Home with pure and bright surroundings

Leaves its impress on the soul."

The Wisdom of King Solomon.–1 Kings iii. 16–28. “And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give halt to the one, and half to the other,"

[graphic][merged small]

See Samuel on his knees! How very early he began to bow thus in supplicating a throne of grace is not recorded ; but this we do know, his whole life was bright and shining! Please turn to the books of Samuel, 1st and 2d.


This Christian mother imparting light, spiritual, from the holy Scriptures! What else ? Sweet little Mary is listening, as you see, with ears and eyes wide open. Happy little one! blessed! They that seek me early shall find me." Prov. viii. 17.

“God is in heaven; can He hear

A little child like me ?
Yes, little child, thou need'st not fear,

He'll listen e'en to thee.

God is in heaven; can He see

When I am doing wrong?
O yes, He can ! He looks at thee

All day and all night long.

God is in heaven ; would He know

If I should tell a lie?
Yes, if thou said’st it soft and low,

He'd hear it in the sky."
