Sittiug at the table with the family, she asked her father, who had been to church, but who was a very wicked man, whether hp ever prayed. He did not * like the question, - and in a very angry manner, replied: "it is your mother or aunt Sally that put you up to that, my little girl." " No, papa," said the little creature, " the preacher said , * All good people pray, and those who don't pray ain'I going to heaven.' Pa, do you pray?" * This was mote than her father could,stand, and in a rough way he said: •' Well, ' you and your mother and your aunt Sally may gp.your way, and I wiU gojnine." y *? Pa," said the little creature * with sweet simplicity, "which way are you going?" . This question pierced _jis heart.

IT IS _TJKIFOBM1T PERFECT IN AIL BESPECTS. Jt is the same in all climates, never sours in hot or cold weather, and requires less ' starch ia using, than any other make.
