Children’s Corner. Bev. T. 0. BOYKIN, State S- S. Evangelist, Ed CHARACTER BVILDIXO. Some children one dav who were playing With curious bl. cks of wood, Determined to put up a building, The very best they could, And I, who among them was standing, Thought out a parable, And showed how a character forming, To this was parallel. First, of course, they laid a foundation, Laying it sure and strong, For they knew if that should be faulty, The rest would all be wrong. So Jesut ‘i trusty foundation By God for you is made, And never can men lay another Than that which has been laid. Then next, they thought that a frame-work Their dainty hands must form, That the tenant thus might be sheltered From wintry cold and storm. And i said—the safest protection Against life’s fretful care. What Jesus himself recommended, Watching w<. uld be, and prayer, Then of course there had to be windows, And doors were thought about, That the rooms all through might be lighted, And men go in and out. So—take for the windows of spirit, Transparent vurity, Let your doors be truth always spoken In firm intt grity. Then, they said, a roof must be added, The finished work to crown, *To flash in the rays of the morning With sunl’ght pouring down. Ami lave is the crown of perfection To characters of earth, Reflecting the 1 canty of heaven, With pure and holy worth! Christian Intelligence r. JACK'S NEW YEAR'S FIND. BY FANNIE E. NEWBERRY. Inside the window is a dining-room, with a table sparkling in glass and sil ver, and aglow with light—a bright fire in the grate, pictures of game and fruit upon the wall, and a side-board a-glitter with silver and wax-light. A laughing, chattering family sit about the table —there is Uncle Ben at the head, and Aunt Mollie at the foot, while Harry, Lou and Jack sit promis cuously between. The servants come and go, the family laugh, talk, and eat in perfect content, never dreaming of the scene without. There, two pale, pinched, little faces are pressed against the ornamented gratings ; two hungry, wistful eyes gaze in; two thinly-clad little figures shiver in the bitter wind, as Tom and Trotty hug closer, and whisper together: “My! Just see that pudding, now! Ain’t it grand? I can just count the raisins in it! Oh! Trotty, I’m awful hungry, aren’t you?” Trotty sighs pathetically, and press es closer to the window which bars her from all that warmth and luxu ry within. “Where’s we going to sleep to night?” she asks, looking anxiously about—“lt’s going to be colder, I guess.” “I’ll tell you, Trotty, let’s stay right here in under the front steps. It's nice and warm in there, and I believe that big fire in the grate will last all night. If they don’t put the curtains down we can come and look at it when we get very cold. It’ll be sort o’comfortin’.” “Yes,” said Trotty, patiently, but she thought, “It looks warm, to be sure, but I would just like to feel it!” aud she gave another involuntary shiv er. • Then the family left the room for the parlors above; the table was clear ed, and the lights put out; only the fire still glowed redly through the gloom, and the curtains were not drawn. Tom and Trotty crept under the steps, curling up close together, and the warmly-nested children with in did not sleep sweeter than they. “Happy New Year! Happy New Year!” whooped Jack, like a young savage, the next morning; but as he hear! only sleepy groans in reply, he concluded to go out doors for a run be fore breakfast. Down to the basement door he clattered, opened it with a rush, and jumped back with a cry of astonishment. “ Gracious ! what’s that?” What seemed to be-a bundle of rags raised itself, and showed a boy’s pale face, and two great eyes, heavy with sleep—but, however rude his awaken ing, Tom did not forget his manners —ducking his head, he said, pleasant ly: “Mornin’ sir! Happy New Year!” Jack laughed, but jumped again as another bundle of rags, in the gloom under the steps, began to uncoil, and a little girl, paler and more pinched than the first bundle, stood up and smiled a good morning. “Well, I declare!” was all Jack could utter, as he looked from one to the other. Jack was fresh from the country, and not used to finding animated bun dles on his doorsteps o’ mornings! He hardly knew how to act under the cir cumstances, but finally said, good na turedly: “Hadn’t you better come in and get warm?” Tom and Trotty were not backward about accepting, so when Aunt Mollie came down to see how breakfast was getting on, she found the three chat ting cozily in front of the glowing grate, as if they had been friends for years. “Goodness! Jack—” said she, “what have you here?” “A boy and girl, auntie, and they’re awful hungry. I’ve invited them to breakfast, and I thought perhaps you’d let ’em go to the bath-room and clean up a little,” said Jack all in a THE CHRISTIAN INDEX AND SOUTH-WESTERN BAPTIST: THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 1881. breath, adding in a whisper, as he stole an arm around her neck. “There’s that suit of mine that’s got the grease-spot on the pants —can’t t Tom have that? And Trotty might ; take the blue merino of Lou’s that is i so short for her, couldn't she, auntie?” ' And Mollie hadn’t a child in the | world, and big-hearted Jack was her favorite among all the nephews and j nieces, so she only hesitated a moment I then turning to the little strangers, I said pleasantly: “Come, children! I’ll see what can be done for you!” When, at last, all assembled about ; the smoking breakfast-table, there I were two guests present who looked I pale, but as neat and respectable as ■ one could wish. All were too well- ] bred to ask questions, but Uncle Ben I gave a good-natured grunt; dainty ■ Lou looked astonishment at Harry ; ami he bowed with an extra flourish i to the strangers, who replied with a “Happy New Year!” But didn’t Tom and Trotty enjoy that breakfast though! And when the others saw their hunger they for- [ got their own appetites and just help ed them to everything on the table. But better was to follow, for they were asked to stay all day, and Jack was sent on some mysterious errand, while they lingered at the table. But when they finally gathered in the library for prayers, Jack sat there beaming, and the piano was crowded with parcels. ! Uncle Ben read Paul’s talk with the j elders at Miletus, that morning, and | when he came to the beautiful words . of Jesus, “It is more blessed to give than to receive,” Jack so far forgot himself as to exclaim aloud, “I declare that’s so!” This made Aunt Mollie say “shoo!” under her breath, at which the children tittered, and Uncle Ben drew down his mouth, as if afraid it might curl the wrong way. Os course the parcels on the piano were New Year’s gifts, in which Tom and Trotty freely shared, and oh! the happy day that followed! Then, when night came, no one had the heart to turn them again into the street; so a room was made ready, and Aunt Mol lie soon decided that she would never let them go. They are good and grate ful children, and are already planning next year’s holiday’s, when Harry, Lou and Jack shall come to the city again, and Tom says: “They’re all splendid, Trotty, but you know Jack found us, and I can’t help liking him best!” To which Trotty cheerfully assents. Praying and doing.—“ Bless the poor children who haven’t got any bed to night,” prayed a little boy just before he lay down in his nice warm cot on a cold windy night. As he rose from his knees, his mother said, “You have just asked God to bless the poor children; what will you do to bless them?” The boy thought a moment. “Why, if I had a hundred cakes, enough for all the family, I would give them some.” “But you have no cakes; what then aie you willing to do ?” “When I get money enough to buy all things I want, and have some over, I’ll give them some.” “But you haven’t enough money to buy all you want, and perhaps never will have; what will you do to bless the poor now?” “1 will give them some bread.” “You have no bread—the bread is mine.” “Then I could earn money and buy a loaf myself.” “Take this things as they now are— you know what you have that is your own; what are you willing to do to help the poor ?” The boy thought again. “I’ll give them half my money. 1 have seven pennies; I’ll give them four. Woudn’t that be right ?” What did the clock say?—The clock upon the tower of a neighboring church tolled forth, slowly and solemnly, the knell of the departed hour. As the last sound died away, Willie, who was sitting on the carpet at his mother’s feet, lifted his head and, look ing earnestly in her face, asked: — “Mother, what did the clock say?” “To me,’’ said his mother sadly, “it seemed to say, ‘Gone, gone, gone, gone!’ ” “What, mother? what has gone?” “Another hour, my son.” “What is'an hour, mother?’’ "A white-winged messenger from our Father in heaven, sent by him to inquire of you, and of me, what we are doing, what we are saying, what we are think ing and feeling.” “Where is it gone, mother?” “Back to him who sent it, bearing on its wings, that were so pure and white when it came, a record of all our thoughts, words and deeds, while it was with us. Were they all such as our Father could receive with a smile of approbation?” Reader, what record are the hours, as they come and go, bearing up on high of you? __ NEGLECTED CHILDREN. Many a mother has wept over the sins of her child, little dreaming that while she pursued her round of idle pleasures her child was taking its first lesson in sin from the example of a vicious nurse. The truth is parents take upon themselves too many unnecessary burdens; and con sider themselves bound by duty to per form too many tasks which are of much less conseouence than the teaching and training of their children. The father hat; his trade or profession, and his few leisure hours he must spend in social pleasure. The mother has her household cares and the comfort of her family to study, aud besides this, there is much time to be devoted to fancy work, visitors and am usements of one kind and another. Her children are mere secondary consid erations, and depend upon the kindness of hirelings. Their dresses may be mir acles of puffing, rutiles and embroidery, but what does that count wL«u their minds are dwarfed through neglect? Her house may be the model of neatness, her bread excel that of all her neighbors, her jellies and preserves enough to tempt the most fastidious ; but if in ail this, she has kept aloof from her child, has chilled his heart towards her, what does it count? —Rural Sun. Horsford’s Acid Phosphate should be used when you are nervous and cannot sleep. Celebrated Dr. Wm. H.

Agents, Atlanta. WHY? DOES A WOMAN LOOK OLD SOONER THAN A MAN. This question is easily answered. Put a Iman ata wa-h-tub; lei him get heated from the hot sud> until even pore is opened; then lei him stand over the filthy steam that conies from scalding and boiling clothes that are full of sweat, and his 1 eulih would soon break down ; besides this, let him, perspir ing, go out into the open air from the hot room, with his clothes wet, to hang up the clothes; yet this terrible ordeal is what nine tenths oi iht women of our land haw to go through fifty two times every year. These few facts readily explain why so many wo men sufl'er from colds, rheumatism, weak nerws and neuralgia, and look old while yet young in years. Fortunately this trouble can be avoided; the Seif-operating PERFECT WASHt' R saves all this. It will fit in any kind of boiler or the old fashioned wash-pot, so common m the South. It will do all the family washing better than it can be done in any other way ; in less than half the lime it takes by hand, aud with one half the soap, without any chemicals or washing prepara tions, ami w ithout the exhausting labor and ruinous wear and tear of garments as by the wash-board, or as by the different pr< cesses of pounding, squeezing amt dashing the very life out oi them. The operatb n of the ma chine consists in rapidly and continuously forcing all the hot water contained in iht boiler from the bottom to the surface, through the discharge pipe, at the rate of 15 gallons per minute, when in full operation, and then, by the force of suetion drawing it downwaid through the soiled linen,causing it to search out aud eradicate every atom of dirt; leaving the articles, after rinsing, thor oughly cleansed and purified, ami having the pure whiteness of new goods imparted t<» them. The PERFECT WASHER is espu ially valuable for washing all kinds of fragile fab rles, such as I act h lawns, cambrics, etc., which are too delicate U, be subjected to the wash-board. Over 10,000 sold, and every one gives satisfaction. The following testimonials are genuine. If you doubt our statements, write to them. READ WHAT THEY SAY: The Rev. C. A.
