Not illustrated. 1879 edition. Excerpt: ...them: "Whose grave is this, children, about which you are so busily engaged?" "Mother's grave, sir," said the boy. "And did your father send you to place these flowers around your mother's grave?" "No, sir, father lies here, too, and little Willie and sister Jane." "When did they die?" "Mother was buried a fortnight yesterday, sir; but father died last winter--they all lie here." "Then who told you to do this?" "Nobody, sir." "Then why do you do it?" They appeared at a loss for an answer; but the stranger looked so kindly at them that at length the eldest replied, as the tears started to his eyes: "Oh, we do love them, sir." "Then you put these grass turfs and wild flowers where your parents are laid, because you love them?" "Yes, sir," they all eagerly replied. What can be more beautiful than such an exhibition of children honoring deceased parents? Never forget the dear parents who loved and cherished you in your infant days. Ever remember their parental kindness. Honor their memory by doing those things which you know would please them when alive, by a particular regard to their dying commands, and carrying on their plans of usefuluess. Are your parents spared toyou e Ever treat them as you will wish you had done, when you stand a lonely orphan at their graves. How will a remembrance of kind, affectionate conduct towards these departed iriends, then help to soothe your grief and heal your wounded heart. Retrospection. Look back upon the path that you have trod from the day that God brought you into being, and say whether you do not, as it were, see all the road set thick with marks and memorials ot divine goodness! more
