WEDNESDAY.... DECEMBER 1?.
Froits the Baltimore Epl?cop*t Methodist.
Children** Book*.
Rev. T. Dc Witt Talma*? has some tell
ing hints in Hearth and Home on the qual
ity of children's books, which may bo pro
fitablv considered when the next lotlsse
looted for the Sabbath-school library. It
may bo thought that the last paragraph is a
little over-muscular, but the advice is sound :
On Sunday night your child does not want
to go to boil". lie ones when compelled to
go. and looks under the bed for some of the
religious hobgoblins that come out of the
Sunday-school library. Religious spooks are
just as" bad as any other spooks. A child is
jtist as afraid of "Floras, Pomonas, sylphs,
oreads, and fairies, as or ghosts. The poor
little darling in the blue sack goes home with
a book thinking she has heaven under her
arm, and before she gets through reading the
story of love and adventure feels so strange
that she thinks she must l>e getting lots o!
religion.
In the choice of our children's books lei
us not mistake slops for simplicity, nor in
sult our children's tastes by disquisitions
about u footsv tootsies," or keep informing
the m of the historical fact, which they learn
ed a great while 5go, that " Mary had a lit
tle lamb," or assemble the youngsters in
coroner's jury to clear up the mystery as to
" who killed* cock robin." If a child has
noommon sense at seven years of age it
never will have.
Have at least one book in votir library in
which all the good children did not die. My
early impression from Sunday-school books
wast hat religion was very unhealthy, it
seemed a terrible distemper, that killed every
b.?y and girl that it touched. If I found my
self some day better than common, 1 cor
rected the mistake for fear I should die;
although it was the general opinion that 1
was not in much danger from over-sanctitv.
Hut I do believe that children may have re
ligion and yet live through it. *A strong
mustard plaster and a teaspoonful of ipecac
will do marvels. Timothy lived to grow up,
and we arc credibly informed that little
Samuel woke. Indeed, the best boys 1 ever
saw occasionally upset things and got boister
ous and had the fidgets. 1 he goodie-goodie
kind of children make namby-pamby men.
I should not be surprised to "find that a colt
which does not frisk becomes a horse that
will not draw. It is not religion that makes
that boy sit by the stove while his brothers
are out "snow-balling, but the " dumps." The
boy who has no fire in his nature may, after
he'has grown up, have animation enough to
grease a wagon-wheel, but he will not own
the wagon nor have money enough to buy
the grease. The best boy 'I ever Knew, be
fore lie went to heaven, "could strike a ball
till it soared out of sight, and in the nice,
far as you could see, you would find his red
tippet coming out ahead. Look out for the
boy who never hasthe fingers of a good laugh
t ickle him under the diaphragm. The most
solemn-looking mule on our place had kick
ed to pieces five dash-boards.
There are parents who notice that their
daughter is looking pale and sick, and there
fore thiuk she must be destined to marry a
mis-ionary, and go to Borneo, although the
jmiy recommendation she has for that posi
"tiou i> that she will never be any temptation
to the cannibals, who, while Very fond of
cold missionary, arc averse to diseased meat;
or finding their son looking cadaverous,
fhink he Is either going to (lie or become a
minister, considering that there is great pow
er of consecration in liver complaint, and
t kinking him doubly set apart who, while
I'reshytery are laving their hands on his
bead, has dyspepsia laying its hand on his
stomach.
oh for a religious literature that shall
fake for its model of excellence a boy that
loves God, and can digest his dinner in two
hours after lie eats !
If the church could trade off three thou
sand hogsheads of religious cant for three
thousand hogsheads of fresh air and stout
health, trc should be the gainers, but the
fellow with whom we traded would he cheat
ed mercilessly and forever.
Stick to Your Bush.?Mr. Morgan was
n rich and also a good man. The people
of the town respected him, sent nim to
Parliament, and seldom, undertook any
thing without asking his advice. II a school
house was to be built, the plan had to be
talked over with hini. Widow P. asked
him what she should plant iu her field,
Farmer .S. always got his advice in buying
cattle, and Mrs. ft. consulted him about
bringing tip her boys.
When asked how he was so successful,
Mr. Morgan said: "I will tell you how it
was. One day, when 1 was a ladj a party
of hoys and girls were going to a distant
pasture to pick whortleberries. I wanted
to go witli them, but was fearful that my
father would not let me. WhepI told him
what was going on, and he at once gave me
permission to go with them, I could hardly
contain myscltvfor joy, and rushed into the
kitchen and got a big basket, and asked
mother for a luncheon. I had the basket
on my arm, and was just going out of the
gate, when my father called me back. He
took hold of *mv hand, and said, in a very
gentle voice, ' Joseph, what are you going
for, to pick berries or . to plav?' ' To pick
berries,' I replied. 'Then, Joseph, 1 want
to tell vou oDe thing. It is this: When
you find a pretty good bush, do not leave it
to find a better one. The other hoys and
girls will run about, picking a little here
and a little there, wasting a great deal of
time, and not getting many berries. If you
as they do, you will come home with an
empty ba'sket.' If you want berries, stick
to your bush.'
" I went with the party, and we had a
capital time. But it was just as my father
said. No soouer had one found a good
bush than he called all the rest, and they
left their several places and ran ofl' to the
new-found treasure. Not content more
than a minute or two in one place, they
rambled over the whole pasture, got very
tired, and at night had out very few ber
ries. My father's words kept ringing in
my ears,*and I * stuck to my bush.' When
I had done with one I found another, and
finished that; then I took another/ "When
night eame I had a large basketful of nice
berries, more than all the others put to
gether, and was not half so tired as they
were. I went home happy. But when I
entered I found my father had been taken
ill. He looked at "my basketful of ripe,
black berries, and said, 4 Well done, Joseph.
Was it not just as I told you? Always
?tick to your hush.'
" He died a few days after, and I had to
make my way in the world as best I could.
But my "fatheVs words sunk deep into my
mind, and I never forgot the experience of
the whortleberry party?I 'stuck to my
bush.' When lhad a" fair place, and was
doing tolerably well, 1 did not leave it and
spend weeks "and months iu finding one a
little better. "When other young men said
? C'ome with us, and we will make a fortune
iu a few weeks,' I shook my head and ' stuck
to my bush.' Presently my employers of
fered' to take me into business witn them.
I staved with the old house until the princi
pals "died, and then I had everything I
wanted. The habit of sticking to my busi
ness led people to trust mc, and gave me a
character. 1 owe all 1 have and am to this
motto, 'Stick to your .bush.'"?Moore's
Jitiral New Yorker.' ?

paces, to fire a pistol SQthat four times in

A poetically-disposed country newspaper
remarked that "it is comforting to know
that one eye watches fondly for our coming,
aTHtipoks brighter when we come." The
otlier local paper condoled in its next issue
thus: " It grieves us to learn that our con
temporary's wife lias lost ouc eye."
Chtkwi: TifiTJiTiv?nt88.-His hnitatto
new is well illustrated by the current story
that once, when employed a cook, he saw
his mtstrcssbreak four eggs, throwing one
awny because it was bad. and dropping the
three others into" a pudding, and lie never
afterwards made a pudding himself without
first careftflly breaking one egg and throw
ing it away. Here is another example : A
San Francisco ladv hired a Chinese boy who
spoke no English. The Chinese keeper
of the intelligence office said to her,
" Just tellee nim once what you likee
him do every day, and every day he
go light along and do it." The next
morning when the lad came she pointed out
to him tils various duties from cellar to gar
ret. When these were all done she noticed
that the gln*i of the transom over the front
door was soiled, -and showing him the step
ladder, made signs for him to clean it. This
done, he was dismissed. But he- cleaned
that glass again the next day, and the next,
and the next. At first she fancied that he
had found some defect in the work of the
first afternoon, and wished to make it per
fect ; but she soon saw that lie regarded it
as a part of his daily duty. All her attempts
to explain the matter to him proved fruit
f less, and she was finally obliged to go back
to the intelligence office and have the keeper
of it instruct the boy that the transom was
to he cleaned not every day, but only when
it grew dirty.?From the last article written

A California paper tolls how an old lady
residing in San Francisco had occasion to
spank ncr little boy. He had been playing
about the wharves, and had sat on a leakv

which was that the first smack the old ladv
administered caused an explosion, which
sent them flying in different directions and
broke all the glass in the room.
