while all the persons at the table were looking at her,
she clasped her little hands, and closed her eyes, and re-
peated in a simple, touching way, this verse of a hymn
her father had taught her : —

** Jesus, Thy blood and righteousness
My beauty are — my glorious dress ;
Midst flaming worlds in these arrayed,
With joy shall I lift up my head."

The company were greatly surprised, and deeply
moved. One of the ladies said to the queen, with tears
in her eyes, " Happy child ! We thought she would
envy us, but we have much more reason to envy her."

That little girl knew Jesus as the bread of life, and
she was so satisfied with this bread that she did not want
the rich and beautiful things that were before her in
that great palace.

I have one more story to illustrate this last point of
our subject. It relates to an incident that took place,
some years ago, in the city of Philadelphia. This
story was told me by our dear friend, Mr. Charles E. Lex,
who is now in heaven.

One day we were walking together up Chestnut Street
above ineteenth. As we passed by Dr. Rush's house,
which you know stands there, Mr. Lex pointed to it and
said, ." I want to tell you a story, which you may per-

sermons for the young,

" D . RUSH A D THE POOR WOMA .

" That house which Dr, Rush built was one of the

largest and finest in the city. When it was finished the
doctor furnished it with great care. The carpets,
mirrors, and furniture were all made on purpose for it,
and were of the. most elegant and costly style. And
besides these the doctor had a great many beautiful
pictures, and pieces of very valuable statuary. He in-
vited many of his friends to come and see his splendid
house, and it was thought to be a great privilege to
do so.

** One day when Dr Rush was coming out of his house,
before he had moved into it to live there, he met an
elderly woman named Mary, going by, whom he knew
very well, as she sometimes did house-cleaning and
other work for him. Mary was a poor widow woman
who lived very plainly, by herself, in two small roonis.
She was a member of the Church of the Epiphany— a
good, earnest Christian woman, whose religion made
her contented and happy.

" The doctor had known her for a long time, and he
respected her very much, for her consistent, humble
piety. As he met her in front of his splendid dwelling,
he thought he would like to show her through it, and
see what effect the sight of a house, so much larger and
grander than she was accustomed to, would have upon
her. So he invited her to come in, and see the new
house. Mary went in with him. TJie doctor took her
