A Little Girl's Question.

A touching little story, with eternal results in it, was told at one of

the meetings, illustrating that word of God's book, "A little child

shall lead them." "A dress-maker called on a very wealthy lady in a city

not far from New York, and took with her her little girl, five years

old. The lady took a fancy to the child, and showed her over the house.

She expressed great admiration at all she saw, and, particularly

attracted by the carpet, said to the lady: 'Why, I should think Jesus

must come here very often, it is such a nice house, and such a beautiful

carpet--He must come here very often. He comes to our house, and we have

no carpet; I am sure He must come here very often, doesn't He?' The lady

not answering, the child repeated the question, when the reply came,

with deep emotion, "I am afraid not." The child left, but God's message

was delivered. The lady related the incident to her husband in the

evening, and both were led to seek the Savior.
