"Mamma, do you know that when
we get to heaven I can fly a great
deal higher than you can?'" "What
makes you think so my son?"
"Wiry, didn't you ever see an old
hen try to fly on top of a fence?
It is all she can do to get up there,
when the little birds, go way up
into the sky.
Mis. C.X. G. B., Charlotte, X.
(.'., says: On one occasion our
little boy, four years old, wanted
to know how the good Lord made
the moon stayup in the sky, and
asked, "Does he tie it with a
i ope?" Again, looking at the
sky, which seems even to u" like
an impenetrable coven ng, "he
wanted to know' how the rain got
through the sky?"' Again, being
reproved for some misconduct,
and told that he was :i naughty
bo'j he replied, "The good Lord j
loves me, anyhow!
John W. Morton, of Fort
Smith, Ark., writes: "Some time
since I was speaking with my wife
about TJianksgiving Day. My
little br3r Ben, four years old,
says, 'Mamma, what is Thanks
giving Daj'?' She answered him
saying it was a day set apart to
return thanks to the Lord for the
blessings He had bestowed upon
us. Ben was not satisfied. He
said, 'Mamma, what are blessings?'
She said. 'Ben, they are the good
things we have received.' 'Oh,
Ben said, 'I have lots of Blessings,
then.' Mamma wanted to know
what they were. Ben said, '1

nuts, oranges, candy, and a lot of
It. B.j was a little South Caroli
nian, who could sing tunes like a
mocking-bird before he could ut
ter broken words in speech. So
soon as he could talk, words and
songs were joined with a rapidity
and sweetness almost incredible.
One Sabbath evening, when K.
was but three years of age, the
children of the family were re
quested to name a favorite hymn
to be sung. Each had a choice,
and when it came to R.'s turn to
make a selection, he astonished
the whole circle by saying that
his favorite hymn was the one that
"God stammered m." The family
were somewhat accustomed to JUs
bright speeches, but this was be
yond them; nor was the surprise
lessened when the child explained,
saying: "Don't God say, 'I, I am
tlry God, and I'll never, no never,
no never forsake?'' Of course it
was immediately comprehended
that "How firm a foundation,"' was
the hymn selected, and which J?,
himself sung throughout with
great sweetness and power.
It is related of another infant
inquirer who was looking with
great interest at a foaming pan of
milk, that he suddenly exclaimed,
"Mamma where do the cows get
their milk from?" "Where do
you get your tears?" was the an
swer. After a thoughtful silence,
in which the mention of tears had
cvidenthy recalled certain associa
tions, he again broke out, "Mamma,
do the cows have to be spanked?"
Little Jack had a Christmas
present of a railroad. He hurriedly
dragged out the engine, the cars,
elc.j and searched the box, though
it was visibly empty. "Those are
all the things," said his mother;
"what are you looking for?" "The

overheard, the other evening, her
parents discussing the subject of a
piano piece for four hands. 'l don't
see how two people can play on the
piano at one time," said she. "Oh,
yes, they can," leplied her mother;
"Think for a moment mv dear."
"So tliev can." mamma.' answered
the little one, after a short reilec

Younjr Oeonre 1. having im
portuned his father for a horse, the
indulgent parent presented him
with the ancient steed which for
years had carried him about the
city streets. A few days afterward
the affectionate son interviewed
his father and renewed his request,
saying: "Father, cant you give
me a horse a little, nearer my own
age, that would be more of a com-
panion for me?" Sunday Maga
Stonewall Jackson at Cedar Mouii'
An evewitness of the battle of
Cedar mountain describes the ap
pearance of the confederate Gen
eral Stonewall Jackson on the day
of the battle, August 9, ISC?:
"When the dead were being bur
ied I saw for the fust time General
Stonewall Jackson. He was stand
in an open field quietly observ
ing the ambulance corps perform
ing their sad duties, with that
gay "cavalier Gen. Job Stuart
by his side. He was dressed in a
faded gray suit, looking quite aus-J
tere, as Stuart, with his accus
tomed hilarity, chatted merrily of
the events which had recently
transpired. I approached to with
in a few feet of where the' stood,
to get a good look at the general
whose fame had already become
world-wide. And during the half
hour 1 was near him T never heard
him speak or saw him even smile.
Stuart did all the talking, while
Jackson's eagle eye was scanning
the movement on the field in our
A twenty-fivc-ycars' quairel has
been ended in New York. Two
brothers named Lj'on have been
engaged in the wholesale paper
business for a quarter of a centu
ry. During this time they have
had an almost continuous dispute
over questions of trade. Finally,
about a fortnight ago, the elder
brothel got an injunction dissolv
ing the partnership and the busi
ness was put into the hands of a
receiver. A more striking case of
brethren not dwelling together in
harmony is seldom seen outside
of ward politics.
Tombstone miners aie now en
gaged in prospecting the upper
waters of the Yukon river, in
Alaska, a region which is said to
be of great mineral wealth. The
region is accessible only during the
brief northern summer, and then
it is not reached without great
hardship. If anything could
toughen a man for this work it
would be the wrestle with the heat
and Apaches of Arizona. For any
one who survives the dangers that
beset the prospector in the south
