Love's Lesson Is Lasting

[Of Special Interest to Children]

In the days when most junkmen used horses to pull their wagons, a little girl learned a lesson about love that she never forgot. The little girl's name was Lori. She had been learning about God in a Christian Science Sunday School and from the Bible stories her mother read to her.

One day when Lori was out playing, an old horse and wagon came down the street. The wagon creaked under a heavy load of junk. The tired old horse was pulling hard, but the driver kept beating him with a whip to make him go faster. It seemed to Lori that he was beating the horse without mercy.

Now Lori was very tenderhearted and couldn't bear to see anything hurt. She did wish she could do something to help. She went into the house and tearfully told her mother about the poor old horse.
