18"If you heal my son, when seeing, I may be led to believe."
Mrs. Rawson then rose from her seat, and sat down
21beside the sofa whereon lay the lad with burning brow, moaning in pain.
Looking away from all material aid, to the spiritual
24source and ever-present help, silently, through the divine power, she healed him.
The deep flush faded from the face, a cool perspira-
27tion spread over it, and he slept.
In about one hour he awoke, and was hungry.
The parents said: —
30"Wait until we get home, and you shall have some gruel."
1 But Mrs. Rawson said: —
"Give the child what he relishes, and doubt not that
3the Father of all will care for him."
Thus, the unbiased youth and the aged Christian carried the case on the side of God; and, after eating
6several ice-creams, the clergyman's son returned home — well.
PERFIDY AND SLANDER
9What has an individual gained by losing his own self- respect? or what has he lost when, retaining his own, he loses the homage of fools, or the pretentious praise of
12hypocrites, false to themselves as to others?
Shakespeare, the immortal lexicographer of mortals, writes: —
15To thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.
18When Aristotle was asked what a person could gain by uttering a falsehood, he replied, "Not to be credited when he shall tell the truth."
