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. Thomas Binney. The Original.

'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. One!Box Fixed Him. Shopton, N.
