Lesson 49. ^^ ^mslerdam
1 once knew two bad boys, who miched from school,
and went to the fields to look for birds' nests. There they
found a thrush's nest, and bore off with them her young
ones, and did bring them home; but, as they could not
feed tliem, the poor birds died: and when the old thrush
came to her nest, and found her young ones gone, she flew
round the nest, and would take no meat, as she loved her
young ones, till at last she died of grief.
Is it not a sad thing for boys to rob poor birds of their
young, and make them die of grief? How would those boys
like to be torn from their homes, and left to die on the
road, or in a wood, far from all that would take care of
them? Do not, then, rob poor birds of their young, but
leave them in their warm nests; and they will sing us
songs of joy in the spring.
Lesson 50.
"I met an old man," said Charles, ,,on the heath, with
a bag on his back. He was weak, and the bag was full;
and it made him bend, and lean on his staff. I was glad
to meet him, for I could help him: if I had not, he would
not have got home; he would have been all night on the
lieath; and it was cold, and the snow fell. When we came
to iiis house, his wife ran out to meet us. She was glad
to see him come; for she thought he had lost his way, and
could not find his home. She said I was a good boy for
what I had done, and that God would bless me; and that
I must, if I would have his love, be kind to the old and
weak, who could not work, and were in want of bread.
I had a mind to help them, but I had not much in my
purse. I gave them what I could spare, and left them glad.
