Are you asleep, Susie?" whispered a half
sobbing voice, coming from a sorrowful
looki little boy, as he bout over hja sis
"No Benny; what's the matter? Does
it hurt you yet where he whipped you?"
"Yes, awfully; and I'm so hungry. lie
wouldn't give me any supper. 1 tell you
I won't stand it; l'm going to run away."
"And leave me, Benny ? I should die in
this old poor-house alone ;" and Susie raised
herself in the bed, and looked mournfully
out of the large window.
"Let's run away together! Wouldn't it
be nice if it was summer? Then we could
go away off in the woods, where nobody
could find us, and pick berries and nuts to
. at and have a splendid time."
"Hush, Benny; talk low, or you will
wake up some of the others. You know it
isn't summer, and we should freeze and
starve to death if we left here now !"
"I'd ratlr freeze to death than be treat
ed as I am; and I am about starved now,"
replied Benny, half-cryiug.
"I'll tell you, Benny. My teacher told
us last Sunday 'that everything belonged to
God;' and she told us once, if we prayed
- m earnest he would answer our prayers."
"Don't you think, Susie," interrupted
Bonny, looking wistfully out at the clear
blue sky, lighted by myriads of bright stars,
"that that big star up 'here is where God
keeps all his good th like nice cakes
"Oh. no I of cour.:i; don't ; but I think
he keeps his at ney in :t; and perhaps if
we pray to lim very hard he will just drop
us some down. Then we could (to just as
we wanted to, and have everything we
want. 0 Benny, let's kneel (own and pray
this minute !"
Down went four little knees, clasped were
four little hands, closed were four litt'le
eyes, and earnestly moved four little lips.
God listened to their petition, and answered
it in his own wise way.
After their prayer was said they crept
softly to the window and . looked anxiously
up at the great star in the sky. Suddenly
they clasped each other's hands, and Susie
whispered joyfully, "lie did hear us! lie
did hear us l lie did( hear us! I saw sonie
thing bright fall right on that big house
"I suppose he didn't drop It 'zackly
straight, or else the wind Nlew it away a
little," said Benny. "Ilow shall we ever
"We'll have to wait till morning, and
then get off some way and tell the folks that
live there all about it, and ask them to let
us go up and get it. We must go to bed
now, though, so we can get up early; and
I'll tell you, Benny, maybe we wou't ever
sleep in this old peor-house again," said
Susie, as she kissed him good night.
Mr. Herman Rock, the owner of the "big
stone house," was a roured, delsolate old
man. Once he had been, different, when
his sweet wife and child were alive, but
since their death he had grown crusty and
miserly. So people were rather afraid of
himi, and let him mostly to himself and his
maiden sister, who kept house for him an
was his only friend and companion. On
the morning following the beginning of this
story, as Mr. I'ock and his sister Celia wt re
taking their morning meal m Iheir great
clean kitchen. tihre came a timl knock at
the door, and on opening it who should
appear before them but little Susie and
lBenny from the poor-house! The children
both seemed very much frightened at first,
but soon Susie sununoned up courage and
related her story, about her lonely condi
tion----how they were abused, their prayer
and the bright thing they saw fall on the
house, and then asked pe~rmiissioni to take a
ladder and climi> up to get their treasure.
She told her story so simpile and innocently
that the two lieners' faces thst wvore an
amused expression, which mooni softened
into one of p)ity, and icy lettera that, had
long bound Celia Itock's heart soon melited
away in a flood of tears as she took lIhe lit.
tIe ones ini her arms tad lavished en them
ninny kind wvords and fond caresses.
"'Give I henm sonice) biLk fast, thien come
into 1,h Bitt ing-roonm.'" coimmainded Mr.
Rp9k in a heatre votre as ho left the room.
Celia Itock kniew by tihe changed look
aind excited appearance of her brother that
something uncommon was about to occur;
but, she was not prepared for what happen
edl when she came before himii.
'"Celia Rock," said lie, walking hurrIedly
across the roomi, "you and I have stiut out
the sunlight fromn our lives long enough;
we have locked up our talenits lonlg enouigh;
we have hid( away our gold long enough.
Laet us nowv undo the shruters and let in the

be as stars in God's hands to drop blessings
amid comnforts to lis little chihdren.''

sent them--not iii a bundle of gold on the
top) of Mr. Itock's hotise, as they had ex

small patch in this way to excellen
