YOUR MOTHER——When n mother has given her strength. often her health,
to care for her children, it is little, indeed, to ask in return tha! they pay to her as much
as they do to acquaintances. There will come a day, boys and girls, when you will
be very, very sorry for every word or deed that hurt your father or mother, a day when
vou will want only a chance to let them know how sorry you are—if there could he
just a few years to be kind and repay in some pari your big debt—but it will be too late.
