A Little Girl's Beautiful Faith.

A little German girl, who had never hitherto known the name of the Lord

Jesus, was led to attend a Mission school. It was the custom at the

school, before the little ones received their dinner, to lift their

hands and thank God for their food.

When in course of time she spent her days at home, and her father's

family were gathered around their own table, this little girl said:

"_Pa, we must
old up our hand's and thank God before we eat._ That's

the way we do at the Mission."

So winning was the little one in her ways, the parents yielded at once.

At another time her father was sick and unable to work, and the little

girl said, "_Pa, I'm going to pray that you may get well and go to work

to-morrow morning_."

At four o'clock in the morning she awoke and called out, "_Pa, don't you

feel better_." The father said, "Yes, I am better," and he went to his

work in the morning, although weak and obliged to rest by the way.

There came a time once when he could not get work, and there was no food

in the house for dinner.

This little girl knelt down and asked God to send them their dinner, and

when she rose from her knees, she said, "Now we must wait till the

whistle blows, till 12 o'clock."

At twelve o'clock the whistle blew, and the little girl said, "Get the

table ready, it is coming," and just then in came a neighbor with soup

for their dinner.
