Children, obey your Parents in all things in the IL«ord, for this is right. Love one another. The Home A.dvocate« For Youth and Children. WILLIAM HAVERLY. About thirty years ago, said Judge 1' , I stepped into a bookstore, ia Cincinnati, in search of some books that I wanted. While there, a little ragged boy, not over twelve years of age, came iu and inquired for a geography. " Plenty of them," said the sales- man. '"How much do they cost?" "One dollar, my lad." The little fellow drew back in dis- may; and taking his little hand out of liis pocket, he commenced to count some pennies and little silver pieces that he had held until they were all clamp with sweat. Three or four times he counted them; at last look- ing up and saying:— " I didn't know they wore so much." He turned to go out, and <ven opened the door, but closed it again and came back. " I have only got sixty-two cents," said he; "you couldn't let me have a geography, and wait a little while for the rest of the money?"...

I was in hopes Aunt Lizzie or Aunt Fanny would happen in this week ; but they have not found it convenient, and so we will have to enjoy ourselves the best we can without them. We are now in the midst of Octo- ber, Which you kuow is the second Fall month. It is one of the most pleasant seasons of the year. 1 be- lieve I will call it the Social Season; for the weather is cool enough to have a nice fire, around which the whole family, and visiting friends, may sit and talk or read. Besides the nights are long enough to allow several hours of profitable reading, conversation, and pastime, before it is time to retire for rest and sleep.— And one night in every week, at least, I hope the Little Home Advo- cate will be a conspicuous and inter- esting guest in the family group.
