(Matthew xviii.. 2-5.) The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. (Isaiah xi? 6.) Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray; and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. ?CHRIST JESUS. (Matthew Mix., 13, 14.) Laboring long to shake the adult's faith In matter and to incul? cate a grain of faith in God,?an iukling of the ability of Spirit to make the body harmonious,?the author has often remembered our Master's love for little children, and understood how truly such as they belong to the heavenly kingdom. ?MARY BAKER EDDY. (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, page 130.) If a child is exposed to contagion or infection, the mother is frightened and says, "My child will be sick." The law of mortal mind and her own fears govern her child more than the child's mind governs itself, and they produce the very results which might have been prevented through the opposite understanding. ?MARY BAKER EDDY. (Science and Health, page i$4-) Willingness to become as a little child and to leave the old for the new, renders thought receptive of the advanced idea. ?MARY BAKER EDDY. (Science and Health, page 333.) Beloved children, the world has need of you,?and more as children than as men and women: h needs your Innocence, unsel? fishness, faithful affection, uncontaminated lives. You need also to watch, and pray that you preserve these virtues unstained, and lose them not through contact with the world. ?MARY BAKER EDDY. (Miscellaneous Writings, page zio.) Children not mistaught, naturally love God; for they are pure rninded, attectionate, and generally brave. ?MARY BAKER EDDY. (Miscellaneous Writings, page 240.) A child can measurably understand Christian Science, for, (through his simple faith and purity, he takes in its spiritual sense that puzzles the man. ?MARY BAKER EDDY. (Message for Z900, page 6.) Ah, children, you are the bulwarks of freedom, the cement of ?ociety, the hope of our race! ?MARY BAKER EDDY. (Pulpit and Press, page 9.) Dear Children o? the Twentieth Century: For some time I have felt an im filing desire to write to you, nnc ]? ve recently questioned myself re garding my untiring efforts quent sacrifi?e of personal ease, walks and automobile rules ami visits with dear friends, and a great sacrifi?e oi material possessions,?that I may tell the "children of a larger growth"' oi th.- light and health and happiness and strength and oneness with out Father-Mother (Jod, which Christ Jesus taught and demonstrated, and which, in tins age, Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Chris? tian Science, restored to the world. efore I shall obey the divine guid? ance?the law of unselfed love, and tell i/ou, dear children, of the Truth, i i has given me, and thousands, health, happiness, and a love for our Father-Mother God, including every fluid of God, for there is but one God, one creator, who is eternal T/ife and Love. Everyone is God's child und i* really our brother or sister. We must learn to think good thoughts and then we will see them as God.made them. We are told that "There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so." Suppose I "reminisce" Just for awhile,?go hack to my childhood and tell you some of my experiences, when I was a little girl. I hail a dear ?earthly father and mother, whom I loved so dearly, that I was always perfectly happy when I was with them. They were very religious,? by this I mean that they loved the Holy Bible and tried to obey God's law and follow Christ Jesus' teach? ings, and I think they must have obeyed Christ's teachings, for they were so good and so healthy and happy. You know, dear little ones, that the Bible is the book that tells us what God says to His people, through men who love Rim and who obey His commandments, one of which reads: Thou Shalt tova the T.ord thy C4o<5 wfth all thy heart, and with all thy ?oui. and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind ; and thy neigh? bor as thyself. These men were cnlled prophets. They prophesied, or foresaw and fore? told the result of wrong thoughts, or thoughts which were not Cod, or pood thoughts. Life and Love and Truth thoughts. Ages Ago people wore told to he good and obey God, If they wanted ta^'ie happy themselves and he able ^n make others well and happy. Elijah was one of the prophets who talked with God and taught God-thoughts to the people, so you see. God spoke through 1dm, and of course Elijah's thoughts were all life and love and troth thoughts, and these good, God-thoughts made the poople. who obeyed God's voice through Elijah, happier and healthier. Did von over hear, children, that once Elijah went Into n house, and he must have boon very hungry, for he asked for something to eat? There was n mother who lived in that house with her little son. and she told Elijah that she bad only oil and meal enough to make one calc? for her little boy's breakfast and that then they must die. Elijah told her to take the meal and the oil and make a cake for him, and plie made it and he ate It all. When my Sunday School teacher told me this story, I said I thought Elijah was a very horrid man and very selfish to eat the cake that the mother was say? ing for ber little boy's hrc lefasi Then my teacher told me that the mother knew that Eltjah was God's prophet and that she trusted him to ask God to save her and her little son. Of course F.Uinh knew that Hod would give him all that he asked for. Every Christian knows this, for the iilblo tells -them to "Ask. i.n.l ye shall re? ceive." So be told the mother that the meal should not waste, neither ?hould the cruse of oil fail, and they did not, for the story read?. "She and fie, and her house, did eat many days. And the meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fall." Then there was another prophet, Elisha, who told a woman how to get the money to pay her debts. The man to whom she owed the money was going to take her two sons and make them work to pay this big debt. Of course, the mother felt very sorry that her sons would have to work hard to pay her debt. Elisha asked her ?f she had anything to eat in the house. She said 'Nothing save a pot of oil," and then he told her to send out and borrow empty vessels of all her neighbors. You see, the mother was obedient to the prophet's word and she had her reward, for all the vessels that she had borrowed from her neighbors were filled with oil, which she sold, and she paid all her . debts, it is right for everyone to pay -, his or her own debts, Is it not, chil? dren? If everyone knew Elijah's and Ellsha's and Christ Jesus' God,?and there is only one (Jod,?there wouldn't be anybody In debt, would there? If everybody knew that the God of Elijah and Bllsha and Christ Jesus was rft?3tr God and (heir loving Father, no one would be worried about debts and there would be no hungry people and no starving chil? dren. I think, children, If Elijah and Elisha were here to-day, they could feed nil the hungry little and big children here and in Europe, and I know, I really do know that Christ Jesus could. I think that all the earthly fathers and mothers and everybody had better find God and He will feed all His little and big children, do you not? Christ Jesus and.his disciples knew, that If people would be healthy and happy, they must love God and love each other, because God is the Father and Mother, or creator, of everyone and of everything that is good and real, and of nothing that is not good, so that anything that is not good is unreal and we must not believe In what God never made. You know that you must love your little brothers and sisters and be unselfish and kind, ami share with them the good things you have, If you wish to be happy, and make your earthly father and mother nnd home happy. As you grow older you will see, that if there is but one God, one creator, and this God is Life and Love, that everyone must be your brother or sister and you must love them, because God Is Life and Love, nnd lie, made them like Himself,?good, and that they are all His good children, whom He made In "His own image." Even the birds and fishes and animals, the flowers and trees and mountains, God made and they are all good, because there Is but one creator, or Father Mother God, and one real world. God Is Life and Lov?, and I believe and understand, with thousands who try to follow Christ, that He Is the cause or creator of all that Is real and eternal. If lie is All, then everyoru? and everything must be His thoughts or children. God-thoughts are good thoughts, Love-thoughts. Truth thoughts, and therefore there can never be any reality In a thought or thing which is not good. God being good, and all that He made good, like Himself, we can never admit another power, as real, such as unkind thoughts, selfish thoughts, ungrateful thoughts, for those wrong thoughts, if indulged, make little children or big children very unhappy, very un lovnble, and sometimes very sick. They are naughty thoughts," which God never made, and the little chil? dren of this century are learning to think God (good) thoughts. They are resisting thoughts which make them sick or unhappy and which make others unhappy. When T was a little girl, no one knew that thoughts made people well nnd happy, or sick and disagreeable to themselves and everyone. Had my dear mother known that her fear that pome disease called contagious was a wrong thought, she never would have; transferred her disease-thought to me, her darling child. She would; never have touched me with that naughty thought?fear?and I should I bave been spared colds and children's diseases, and she would have had. during those sick thought days, i\ ! happy, healthy little daughter, to give her Joy and reward her for her tender mother-love. However, 1 survived my parents' Idolatry and have learned how to think God (good) thoughts to everyone, and how to refuse to think any but God-thoughts, life and love, to all. This gives 1UC' ? and gives everyone who obeys God's law of Life ami Love,? health, happiness and love for all and for everything which God made. It also gives the repelling power of Love to fear, and Love chases away naughty thoughts and protects little children and big children from their influence. My dear mother was my first Sun? day School teacher. I used to commit verses from the Bible and I learned the history of Jesus' wonderful power to heal the sick. But I thought Jesus was the Son of God and that God gave him special power to do this work. Jesus said to his early disciples, The works that I do shall ye do also, and greater works than these shall ye i\o; but I never thought that I was also God's child and could do the same, If I understood and obeyed the law of God, as Christ Jesus did. My mother was shocked when I questioned the prayer she taught me to say before I went to sleep, which ran thus: "Now I lay ma down to sleep ; I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should dlo before I wnko, I pray the Lord my soul to take." 1 did not want to say this prayer, because I did not want to die and leave my dear parents, my horse and piano and organ and home. I would often toll my father, who desired ti: make nie n musician, that other little 'girls' fathers and mothers did not keep them In the house on bright sunny days, practising on a piano oi an organ. But father was insistent and when I was fourteen years ole ] played the organ In his church, li was not a great'big pipe organ, chll dren, but It was an old-fashlonec Mason & Hamlin organ, with bu .seven or eight stops, which I playct ! for four years. I learned after : while, that the organist, whom the; ' discharged, was paid $GO0 a year, an< father, who was a church official, wn saving that money for his church, fo in all those four years they neve paid me anything. Perhaps fathe was teaching me the lesson of obedi I en ce and unselfishness. Me was ai 'architect, and built and loved hi | church edifice, and, children, does 1 'not seem strange that years aftei wards Mrs. Eddy sent me to New' York- city to preach and teach Chris? tian Science, and to boal the sick, and that, with my students, I built fl ? church edifice? When the big pipe organ was brought into the church to be set up, and the consol?; was on, the floor and many workmen were there, a man came up und passed me n brown paper, upon which was writ- ! ten, ".Madam, will you play 'Nearer ? My God' for the boys?" I told thorn; I 'would If they would sing It with me, which they did. So I was the first one to play the organ in the church over which Mrs. Eddy gave me charge. As a child, I rebelled at the prayer, "If I should die before I wake." To day, dear children, you can go to Slumberland with the prayer that I dear Mrs. Eddy has given to children of the twentieth century, and which will never take you away from your i parents, but will, teach you thnt God Is your life and that you cannot no separated from Life and Love. You will learn that God-thoughts are life. This is Mrs. Eddy's prayer, which thousands of little ones offer to our loving Father-Mother God every night : "Father-Mother God, Loving me,? Guard mo when I Bleep | Guido my little feet Up to Thee." j There Is another prayer, whose author I do not know: "Now I lay me down to sleep ; I know that God His child does keep. 1 know that God. my life. Is nigh, 1 Uve in Him ; I cannot dio. God Is my health, I can't be sick; God is my strength, unfailing, quick ; God Is All ; I know no fear, Since Life and Love, dear God, Is here." My second Sunday School teacher ! was shocked when I asked lier, how she knew that heaven was such a lovely place. Had some one come | back and told her? She said In heaven the streets were golden and [the gatos were pearl and the men ; were playing on harps. I asked if there were any mothers In heaven and little children, for I did not want to go to a place where there were no mothers and no little children. In my child mind I used to picture golden streets, and they seemed so bright they dazzled me and made me lonely. I compared them with the strccis that led up to dear Grandma's house, where I used to linger to pick the glossy pink thistles and the wild roses, whose perfume I drank In, till t opened the gate which enclosed the I old-fashioned garden, radiant with marigolds, bluebells, asters, sunflowers and all garden roses. Compared with these, heaven's golden streets had no attraction for me. The harps also failed to lu'-e me, for the only harps; I ever had seen were played In the streets by wandering musicians, and; my imagination could not change the picture. The pearly gates were not to be compared to the wooden gate; that: swung opon and welcomed me, as j I went Into my own "home, sweet home," where were my dear, loving ! parents. All this time their love for God and their efforts to obey His law and to follow Christ made such an impres? sion on my child mind, that I loved my heavenly Father and was always a prayerful, happy child. I believe I have always resisted a separation from God, who is Life and Love and my source and supply of being. Al? though I never understood the Science, or Principle of being, until Mrs. Eddy taught me to love good and make all evil unreal, by understand? ing that all were God's children. She told me that, some day everyone would stop thinking bad, wrong thoughts which cause suffering, and would think God-thoughts and let God (good) thoughts govern them and give them life and strength and every good thing. Some day everyone will know that God is our loving Father Mother and that He loves and cares for every one of His children. Christ Jesus told us this and Mrs. Eddy taught us to follow and obey his teachings. They are all workable when we admit that God Is Mind, in? telligence, eternal Life, Love, and Truth, and that God Is the only crea? tor. So if we just learn this and begin to think God (good) thoughts, think loving thoughts, think of everyone as good and as God's child, and refuse 'to believe they are not, we shall find ourselves under God's law and shall be healthy and happy. God's law Is Life nnd Love, and \?\ God there Is no sin, sickness, nor seeming death. God feeds and clothes every child of His, just: as He clothes the lilies. One day when the people were fol? lowing Christ. Jesus to hear his teach? ings, they became very hungry and the disciples had only five loaves and two fishes with which to satisfy their own hunger. Jesus told them to call, the people and ask them to sit down on the grass and five thousand hun? gry people obeyed. It whs a big pic? nic, was it not, children? But Jesus knew that God would feed these dear people, because they had been follow? ing him. to learn how he healed the sick and walked on the water, and Love supplied enough food for these five thousand people. They ate all they wanted, and 1 do not doubt that they were very hungry; and yet there ? were left twelve baskets full. I never : heard what they did with the twelve ! baskets that were filled with food, but I probably they took care of It and saved it for some other hungry folks. whom they might meet. Certainly we know that it was not wasted, for that; would not have been right. We should never waste anything. Perhaps you think that fish and bread made a poor picnic, but you, children, must know that the people, in that day, liked fish and bread better than anything else and I do not believe they would have cared at all for the nice sandwiches nnd cake nnd ice cream, which mothers to-dny give to their little boys and girls when they go on a picnic party. Dear little children, do you not wish that Christ would come again and feed tho dear people who, we are told, are so faint for need of bread, and the dear little children all over the world, who are said to be so hun? gry and so unhappy and so ill clad? no shoes, no nice warm sweaters and no one to put them In soft little beds und hear their prayers and kiss them goodnight? Christ said, "Lo, I am with you alway," and I believe he is ! here and we will see him, when we I are good and kind and loving^ and he will fe.ox\ all the world and clothe everyone, his little children and his big children and all the animals and birds and fishes and he will make | everything so bright and so beautiful ! ! He said he would come again and we j must believe St, because Christ Is ; Truth. One of his disciples said, and | we find this In the New Testament, I "Unto them that look for him shall , he appear the second time." So he | will come, because he promised, and i when wo are good enough we shall j see him, and everyone will be so I happy ! Is it not pitiful to see what naughty. I selfish, greedy, ungrateful thoughts have done to bring suffering to inno : cent little children? God never took the earthly fathers nnd left the little ones to suffer. War did it, and war thoughts are hate, and envy, nnd fear. and selfishness, and these thoughts are evil, and they make wars and cause the dear children and all to suffer. I used to try to commit to memory the verses of "The Star Spangled i Banner." I did not like the words, j "proud war's desolation." My vivid ! Imagination pictured "desolation." j The "rocket's red glare" disturbed ?me too, for I knew that some dear father or brother would get hurt or 'killed and mothers Would grieve for I their dear boys, who came home sick and wounded or were killed by the "bombs bursting In air." so T did not sine any word?, until it came to "'Tls the star-snanglpd banner, O long may it wave O'er tho land of the free and tha home of the brave," I and these words I sang. I alwnys like ?to think of America as "the land of I the free and the home of the brave," and the stars nnd stripes are dearer to me than ever. They have waved from my house every day for nearly three years. But, entre nous, chil? dren, just between you and me, I do not think that everyone who sings those words Is "brave" and "free." They are not all brave enough to obey God's law, to love and trust tbelr heavenly Father to feed and clothe them. Christ Jesus told them that God would feed and clothe them as He clothes the lilies, If they would obey the law of Truth, and love their netgh bora as themselves. You and I know that lots of people are not free. They may think they are, because they are not slaves, nor In a prison, but they are slaves to belief In a power op? posed to Life and Love, God,?the be? lief of life In matter Instead of the understanding of Life in Mind. They are slaves to fear that they may be? come sick, or poor, or die. This fear is a death-thought and only the Life and-Love-thought can destroy fear. The Bible says, "Fear hath torment.'* Paul speaks of "them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage." Christ Jesus and Mrs. Eddy teach us that God, our heavenly Father, our creator, is Life and Love and Truth, and that there is no death. Some time everyone must learn about the Principle of be? ing, Spirit, or Mind, which is God. I wonder, children. If among the many poems which have been written about America, you hare ever seen the one entitled "Our America." It at once appealed to me as progressive and Mrs. Eddy says, "Progress is the law of God." The Bible tells us that "God is light, and In Him Is no dark ness at all," that Is, no sin, no sick? ness, no death, for all these conditions ; come from wicked thoughts, which 1 also cause war and they do not belong to God nor to His children. This anthem begins thus: "America, America, thou gaveat birth To light that Ilghteth all the earth. God keep It pure! We love that onward leading light; We will defend It with our might; It shall endure !" Certainly, America was born of spiritual thoughts, or spiritual ideals, the light that will finally light ail the earth and dispel all the darkness, suf? fering, and sorrow. God wiU keep it pure and we will defend this light with all our might. Americans often ! recall the words of George Washing : ton, the father of our country, and : repeat them in their defense of*spirit? ual, mental ideals: Let us raise a Btandard, to which the wise and honest can repair ; the event is in the hands of God. Abraham Lincoln, the President o? our great nation, whom every true j American delights to honor and emu Hate, left this rich legacy of his Soul inspired words: This nation, under God, shall havo a new birth of freedom ; government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. f am telling you these words, dear! children, that they may make a spirit? ual mental impression, which will help you to preserve America's spirit? ual ideals and inspire you to been.ne great and good, as were Washington and Lincoln. It was said of Wash? ington that he never told a lie. Both he and Lincoln were truthful, honest, and brave. Washington and Lincoln united in one firm purpose, to estab? lish a nation which should be gov? erned by God, good, eternal Life. Love, and Truth, and they succeeded. To dny, true Americans depend upon God for guidance, and try to obey His protecting and sustaining law, upon which America was founded. This will continue to make America the haven of rest, peace, and prosperity. Dear children, let us help to make America truly the "land of the free and the home of the brave." America, America, on-pressing van Of all the hopea of waking man. We love thy flag!? Thy stately Hag of steadfast stars, And white, close held to heart-red bars. Which none shall drag ! Ameri??a, America, the God of lovs, Whose name ie ov'ry name above, Is thy defense. 'Tis thou must lead the longing world From phantom fears, to Love's un? furled Omnipotence. ?Alice Morgan Harrison. Love never harms anyone, hi; blesses all. Remember, dear chi dren, that you can be very happy an healthy, and make others happy, : you are loving and unselfish an grateful for everything that your pa ents or big brothers and sisters do f< you, or that anyone does for you,-1 make you happy. Did you ever awal I early some cold winter morning, whi [ it was yet dark, and hear the mil man rattle the, battles, as he left tl nice milk for your breakfast,??and i you snuggled in your warm bed, th your dear earthly father and inoth had provided for you, did you send o to the milkman a loving thought, grateful thought, and ask God to ke him happy and warm? Did you ev think how many are working to ma our clothes, our coats and shoes a: hats and dainty little frocks,?b< many sew, and sew, and sew? A sometimes they must be very tire but they finish their work and comes to us to supply our needs. we forget to be grateful for all th provide for us? Never think tl buying these things is all we have do for them. We must be gratef Selfish, unkind, ungrateful cblldi ?re never happy. The twentieth c tury children are learning that lov thoughts, grateful, un?elflshjthoug make them healthy and happy. I am so glad that you, little o: of the twentieth century, will ka the difference between the thou that makes you well and the thou that makes one sick. I think I i I tell you another experience of I childhood, which will make you gn tul that you did not live in the days ' when people did not know ? power thought Is. A friend father's, n lawyer, told me he give me a bright ?silver dollar if i I would learn and repeat to- bin verses of the Mother Goose EU I was four years old and ! . to read. The silver dollar - great reward. Mother gave a? book and I began to comm verses. By the way, children, p? . haps yon never saw this book. [ hope yoti never did. If you have seta it, then you know that Mother was indeed a goose to send out foolish rhymes for little hear from nurses and mother will tell you several ; and whe learn that thoughts are force good or bad, for love and peace and joy and strength, or for fear ai cord and sometimes pain, when you ?earn this, you will be glad ti. are the twentieth century <??. and know how to think and speak. One rhyme reads thus: Rock-a-l>ye, baby, upon the tre? toj?. When th-? wind blows, th? crai!? will rock ; When the bough breaks, the erad!? will fall, Down comea the cradle, and baby, and all. Just think, children, of repeating such words to babies. P>ables think, and they feel the thought of num. or mother, or whoever cares for them. If baby went to sleep, thinking it was in the cradle and the cradle was on the tree top, and If it heard the last words of the nurse, "When th? t bough breaks, the cradle will j no wonder that it awoke In the m^ii? I and cried out with fear that it m ?* ; coming down, "cradle and all." I Nurses' or mother might have thought baby had a stomach ache and given I it some peppermint tea, but ic? know that it was fear that awakened the baby, and only love destroys fear. But people did jiot know in i days that thoughts Influenced f or bad. so they were not respi ! as they are to-day. Think of i one of Mother Goose's many rhymes, with which the children of the niae teenth century were treated: Hi diddle, diddle, The cat played the flddlt?. The cow jumped over the moon : The little dog laughed to see Bl-ort, And the dish ran away with th? spoon. What a stretch of Imagination,?ask? ing a child to believe that a heavj mooley cow could jump over th? moon' Think of u. kitty playing l ? I fiddle and then try to convia | child that a dish could run away wit) la spoon! These are only sa.". 1 the rhymes with which little i ? were entertained. They surely j not. from these mental Impressions develop intelligence, but Instead, ?i they grew older, they suspected peo pie of untruths and deceptions. . of saying things that could not he s< Thus the children's sweet faith lessened and they were made to douh and distrust. Mrs. Eddy tells us to bee minds "so fil loti with Truth and Lov?. that sin, disease, and death cann enter them." Little children ar ?earning that they must think Goi (good) thoughts, which will them happy and healthy ai j everyone to be good and lo\ ? unselfish -and happy. The of this age. who are taught t? 'as Christ Jesus taught, and I ?that God made them good and thfl He made everyone good nn! that th ? universe and all things that we se | are God's work,?when they lear that He gives them life because U Is Life, and that they are lo good because He is Love and govern His own children.?when, I say, littl children and "children of a large growth" learn this and follow t!. teachings of Christ Jesus an i Mar j Baker Eddy, they will be healthy an happy and have everything they neei ; Our Father .Mother God, 1 i Love, owns the whole real world. Ti ! so-called dream-world He, God, nev< 'made. It will some day d i and the real will appear. * Th< will some day learn to say the* words, which Mrs. Eddy gave world : There Is no life, truth.
