er wings; she seeketh diligently for their pod.

Although she cannot speak, her voice is ntelligible to their ears; and for their ben-fit she calleth unto them.

But who hath taught the bee, or the ant o labour? Who hath told them that winer's cold succeeds to summer's heat?

Who hath taught the young stork to be areful of its parent? or the hen to provide or her chickens?

Who hath taught the bear to love her whelps? or who hath instructed the horse o know his feeder?

It is God; it is he who feedeth the birds of he air, and decketh the fields with flowers. His goodness is over all his works; just and true are all his ways; and will he not each you, O, ye little children!

Yes, he hath promised that he will teach you; listen therefore to his commands, and, when you hear, obey.

Admonish a friend; it may be he hath not done it; and if he have, that he will lo it no more.

Admonish thy friend; it may be he hath not said it; and if he have, that he will say it no more.

Admonish a friend; for many times it is a slander: and believe not every tale. Watch over thy speech; for much good, or much evil, may be done by the words of thy mouth.

If then blow the spark it will burn; if thou *pit upou it, it will be quenched

Behold the frozen regions of the north, where few green herbs appear; and where the sun is not seen for several months in the year.

Where ships cannot pass in the sea for islands of ice; and where the shores are bound fast by the frost; and the mountains, for ages, are covered with snow.

Even there is the habitation of men ; and many seem content with their place of abode. They cover themselves with the warm fir of the beasts; and rejoice in the bountiful gifts of heaven.

When the sun disappeareth, they trust the moon will give them light; and they behold the stars in their brightness.

In the absence of the moon, the great

They catch the reindeer and train him for drawing the sledge; he travelleth with

out fear over the mountains.

His hoof spreadeth wide, so that his feet enter not into the frozen snow; it would be difficult to trace his steps.

He seeketh food where it is not seen; even beneath the snow he findeth moss which satisfieth his hunger.

The sun returneth at his appointed season; and shineth from the sowing of the corn till the reaping of the same.

Now let us consider the torrid zone; where the inhabitants feel powerfully the rays of the sun.

How shall they endure the scorching heat? or how can the earth bring forth fruit? Some passing clouds assuage the excessive heat; refreshing gales descend from the lofty mountains; and at noon, fresh breezes arise from the ocean, which purify the air.

The ground yieldeth an abundant increase; and fruits and herbs, in constant succession, cover the face of the vallies.

There the terrors of the Lord are known; there, in the awfulness of his power, he maketh his greatness manifest.

The storms descend from the tops of the mountains, and the thunder is heard in dreadful peals.

The lightning blazeth through the air, and the rain descends in torrents.

The roaring of the wind is heard from afar ;

The mountains smoke; the rocks are rent; the earth quaketh, and gapeth wide,

But in a little while, he who formed the heavens and the earth, causeth all to be still,

The whole face of nature smileth again, and his mercies are extended to men.

'The flowers send forth their fragrant sweets, and refresh the inhabitants of the land.

Have patience with a man in low estate, and delay not to show him mercy.

If a man show no mercy to his neighbour, how can he ask pardon of God?

There is nothing of so much worth, as a mind well instructed,
