Children to quote a verse of Scripture
to illustrate the story. In this way
she hopes to impress the usefulness of
Biblical knowledge upon the little
ones. Last Sunday she told her class
of a cruel boy who would catch cats
and cut their tails off. "Now can
any little girl tell me of an appropri
ate verse?'" .he asked. There was a
pause for a few moments when one
little girl arose,and in a solemn voice
said: " Whatsoever God has join

"His manner'is worth a hundreh
thousand dollars to him!" That i4
what one of the chief men of the na
tion lately said about a boy. "f"
would not be worth so much to one
who meant to be a farmer, or whb
had no opportunities; but to a young
college student with azbition, it is
worth at least a hundred thousaind."
The boy was a distant'relative of the
man and had been brobght up by
careful parents in a far-off city.
Among other things, he had bee&
taught to be friendly, and to think
of other persons before himself.
Therefore, he soon acquired a cheery
helpful and affdile nmanner that wo$
for him an entraneb into the estee4
and codfdence of all who knew himn.
His attractive address and quiet cona
sideratibn made frieids for him o&
every hand. A score of small court=
esies every day unconsciously called
attention to'his value. That is why
the shrewd man of the world vent
ured the foregoing opinion.
