Then speaking to George in kiiuily tones, Le said, "You aro too youiig to be engaged, my child. Wbo seut you here ?" '■I cíuik!, mysolt, sic, My íather and are o-on'é to beaven.

They ookod on tho d'jlieate ehild before them uitli pity and rospout, and one oí' them L'lacing a shilling on the desk, asked the rés't to folloliia exaniplé; they did so. IIi then took the mouey and offerióg it to George, said : "You are too smull to be of any use ere, my good boj. liut take tbis money, arfd wheo you have grown a )it, prrhüps we may lind sometbing for you to ii." Ql orge looked at the money withmt pflering to touch it. 'Wliv Ji'n't yo taku the monev"?" tsWèd tne clerk.

"We give you the money not beoause wethink you a beggar, but booause we like your spirit. Öueh a boy as you will not easily bc come a. beggar Take the money, my boy, and may God bless you, and give yon and your aunt butter days." I like George 's spirit in this affair. It was noble, brave, and self-reliant bevond bis years. It was the spirit that malíes peor boys gruw into useful and successf'ul men. It made George do tbii-; for in after years that litt e boy bccame a noted artist, whose praise was spoken by many toogucs. All children should cherish a desirc to do all they O,an lor themselves and to support ihometilves by'their owu labor as early as possible Those who lean on fatber iind mother for uverythmg will find it liard work tri gut along by and by, as they may have to do vvbcn their parents die. Those vvho early learn to rely upon themselves will have little diflSculty in earning their own liviug. Learn, thereforo, to help yourselves - always takiog cure to do so undor the advioe anil with the conseut oí your good parents and guardiaus. - Yuung Reaper.
