The Mission of the Children.
Only think,f there was never any
thing anywhere to be seen but grown
up men and women, how we would
long for the sight of a little childt
Every infant comes into the world like
a delegated prophet, the harbinger and
herald of good things, whose office is
to turn the fathers' hearts to the chil
dren and to draw the disobedient to
the wisdom of 1.he just. A child softens
and purifies the heart, warming it and
melting it by its gentle presence; it
turichea the oul by new feelings and
awakens within it what is favorable
to virtue; it is a beam of light, a
fountain of love, a teacher whose. les
sons few can resist Infants recall us
from much that engenders and encour
ages selfizhness, that freezes the af
fections, roughens the manners, indu
rates the heart. They brighten the
home, deepei-love, invigorate exeition,
Infuse courage and vivify and sustain
- the charities of life. It would be a
terrible world, I do think, If it were
not embellished by little children.

A Hair Cut That Made War.
The cropping of .the flowing locks
and beard of Louis VII. 'of France
brought on three centuries of blood
shed. The archbishop of Rome had
decreed, thatithe French king, as a pen
ance, should sbe and have his hair
cut short. His appearance so star
tied and amused his spouse, Queen
Eleanor, that she laughed aloud and
began contemptuously to flirt with the
Count of Anjou, afterward Henry II.
of England. The shorn king stood
the disgrace for a time, but at last
sent evidence of his grievance to the
pope and obtained a divorce. Eleanor
then married Henry, and as her dower
-the rich provinces of Poitou and Gui
enne. passed into his hands. Louis
made hot attacks on Normandy, and
devastating wars, which cozitinued for
some 300 years, were the consequence
of this cropping of a monarch's head.
