[Written Especially for Children]

"You see," said one of them, "we learn at home and in Sunday school that there shall no plague 'come nigh thy dwelling,' and we know that our dwelling is our thinking, our consciousness. So if we keep error pictures out of our thinking we are protected, and such pictures are not found on our bodies."
