WE feel the best if we give the Lord something of our own—something that it has cost us an effort

to get. Said a little girl to her father, " Papa, please let me have an apple-tree this season."

"Why, my daughter?"

"So that I could call it my own, and use the fruit as I wish."

"But how do you want to use it?"

"I want to pick the fruit and sell it, and make missionary money, which will then be truly my own."

It would be well for boys and girls to have a chicken, a sheep, a tree, a patch of ground or something, and use the proceeds for their missionary work.—
