THE FIRST STEP
She ventures slowly, half in glee,
Her weight she tries uncertainly;
Her eyes are wide with half-brave fear—
She knows my loving arms are near!
One foot uplifted, fingers tense,
She holds a heart-beat in suspense;
Then, with unguided, outstretched
See! All at once my baby stands
All by herself!
My little girl, in years to be,
When I shall know eternity,
Should you to grim temptation hark,
In some wild hour, so fierce and dark,
Remember then, though I am far,
In whose control our footsteps are.
O, heed His tender, guiding hand.
And God will help my baby stand
All by herself.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Any one can carry his burden
however heavy, till nightfall.
Any one can do his work, how
ever hard, for one day. Any one
can live sweetly, patiently, lov
ingly, purely, till the sun goes
down. And that is all that life
ever really means. —Stevenson.

Look, Mother! If tongue

If your little one’s tongue is
coated, it is a sure sign the stom
ach, liver and bowels need a gen
tle, thorough cleansing at once.
When your child is cross, peevish,
listless, pale, doesn’t sleep, eat
or act naturally; if breath is bad,
stomach sour, system full of cold,
throat sore, or is feverish, give a
teaspoonful of “California Syrup
of Figs,” and in a few hours all
the clogged-up, constip at e and
waste, sour bile and unigested
food will gently move out of the
bowels, and you have a well, play
ful child again.
SicK children needn’t he coaxed
to take this harmless “fruit lax
ative.” Millions of mothers
keep it handy because they know
its action on the stomach, liver
and bowels is prompt and sure.
They also know a little given to
