I don't believe I could keep one half so long," , said little Ella; " why do you think so much of this little Bible?" " Because 1 have had it so long, and still more, because it was in its small pages that I first learned to love God's word. It has been my daily guide and comforter for many a long year." "(Who<gave it to you,_^iss Annie 1" little Ella asked presently. Miss Annie _replied that it was too long a story _j but little Mia said, "I do love long stories," and her eyes sparkled with anticipation.

We remember once to have been scofed at by a musical Mend for asserting that of'all national airs, Yankee Doodle was the most inspiriting, and that as a composition it deserved to take rank among the highest of such melodies, having nothing ridiculous about it except its unfortunate name. It is some satisfaction to see how enthusiastically this opinion is endorsed in a late _™lume of travels entitled, " A Bun tnrough Europe, by Mr. Benedict; a popular lawyer of New York,— and by the Way, the author of one of the most agreeable and instructive books of the kind that has been issued this season * . . , Mr. Benedict %s: "I remember when it was fashionable to laugh at Yankee Doodle as a vulgai «r. written to make fun of our extempore soldiers _sf the olden time.
