The Children's Missionary Box.
The children in a poor-house at the
west thought they must have a mission
^ry-box. One of tho boya said lie was
(tifraid he cnuld not get any money tn pui
into it. The teacher told him iflie de
sired to help the heathen, God would
send him money. He askod her, "How
will he send it? Will he send it as he
did ihp^jianna frnm heaven?" A few j
days ?!?r, he entered the room, hie!
.countenance beaming with delight, say-1
ing,'"God lias given mo h cant fur the .
missionary-Sox.'' He IibJ earnd it by
carrying coal fur the fiie. A gentleman
visited' tbo flchool-room, and the chil
dren having sung for hie entertaiunlem,
he g?ve them fifty cenls for a treat.
WSefi be left, one ofthem proposud iha
thoy put the money into the box, which
they all consented to do. At the close
of the year they gave the contents of the
box to a colporteur saying, "We give
you money, which is to be applied to
foreign missions, and we hope the bles
sing of God will attend it." It amount
to S2.77. V4
Mucnce of Mr-jCobb's Example.
A correspondent of ("Methodist paper
published at Richtn'tjouTVa. enclosed five
hundred dollars for missions, anSfeaJi:?
?'About ten years ago I began the i
world with what I saved from my wages
f'>rattending a store; and about the same
lime I read in the Christian Advocate uti
iircount of certain resolutions ofjftflIK
Cobb, a tnemborofthe Baptist chm-oii in
Boston, and I conclude by the grace
nf God, not only to follow his plan, but
nlso the example and advice of Mr.
Wesley, "to make all you can, 4sve a 1
you can, and give all you can.'"
How powerful is the influence of ex
ample! Lei every youth remember that
\vhon he lays down a correct piinciple
of action, and carries it into practice, ho I
in inBuencing others, and lie knows m t
* how many, to do the same.

Messrs. C. T.fy W.E. Fra:cr,jr.?Gentlemen:
Thii it to certify that home time rince 1 was at
tacked with severe and violent Head-ache from
which I suffered for more than a week, in the
mean time tnking different kinds of pills, until I
wrs completely exhausted in strength. Having
heard ofyour celebrnted pills I started for Cooks
town, to purchase a box, very much against the
wishes ol'my friends who ndvised me to go to bed
and have a physician sent for. When I readied
your store 1 had such acute pain in my temples
I was hardly able to stand. After getting a box
of pills, I immediately took four of them, and
in three hours after I was entirely relieved. 1
continued using them until 1 had taken the whole
box; and now feel permanently cured. I sin
cerely believe had I not taken the pills I would
have had a violent attack offoter. I recommond
Frnzer's pills among all othors, aa the very best
pills in the World!
Respectfully yours, ^S/l 5. HA VELY.
