A Striking! Question.

"MAMMA," said a little child, "my Sabbath-

school teacher tells me that this world

is only a place in which God lets us live

awhile that we may prepare for a better

world. But, mother, I do not see anybody

preparing. I see you preparing to go into

the country, and Aunt Eliza is preparing to

come here. But I do not see any one preparing

to go there; why don't you try to get

ready? You scarce ever speak about going!
