UNCLE FRANKS CHAT. 1'far Children, you all saw by the last two numbers of the Advocate, that I was away from home attend, ing the East Texas Conference at Henderson. But do you know what a Conference is ? It is a meeting of preachers and representatives of the Methodist Church, to transact the business of the Church. The presid- ing officer is one of the bishops.

Among the mountains of Saxony dwelt ft blue-eyed boy, whose sole possession was an ivory flute. It was an heir loom in his family, and had belonged to many a grand father before him. Yet it seemed to have :i human soul, as ltoderic sat on a high rock, watching his grazing wheep, and pouring his mountain mel- odies 011 the dewy air. Even the sheep felt its influence, and would not stay from its harmo- nious souhd, so that his duties as ahepherd, were consequently light- tyed. It so happened, that a stranger passing, one summer day, paused by the cool fountain to drinfc and par- take'of his noon day lunch. The wonderfully sweet tones of Roderick ivory flute fell upon his ear, and he sprang up to seek their source. " Come with me, my boy," he cried, •as he found him, " come with me, to Paris, and that flute shal...
