verse in their Bibles and be able to recall the verse when only the refer­ ence is given. Drawing outlines of pictures ’ over certain words in the verse is also help­ ful. For illustration, in John 5:24, the word “heareth” suggests an ear; “my word” suggests a Bible; “believeth” suggests a heart, and “ on him” sug­ gests a cross. By drawing outlines ' about those words, the meaning of the words is given in a visual manner. The Scripturegraph board also may be used. If so, the verse might be spelled out on the board, substituting for certain words the pictures that represent them. All of these devices help the child to hide away God’s Word in his heart and to remember it all the days of his life.—M. S.

eyes and said, “Yes, Jim, I would.” “Do you really mean that from youi heart? Then let’s get down right here behind this porch wall and pray, ac­ cepting the way of salvation the Lord has made for you.” When Johnny stood up, there was an odd light on his face. Queer what a difference a few minutes could make in a fellow, he thought. Why, he felt all light and happy inside—like at Christmas, only more so! “Where are your sins, Johnny?” Jim asked. “Washed away,” Johnny replied promptly. Then his face sobered. “Say, Jim, when you’ve done something that is wrong, before you take the ,Lord Jesus for your Saviour—the sin is all washed away, isn’t it? But what if the sin helped you get something you shouldn’t have? Should you tell the person about that?” “Suppose you tell me all about it, Johnny,” Jim asked quietly. “W—ell, it’s like this. You know lots of the guys at school cheat—they don’t call it that, but that’s what it is. They copy off each other’s papers and things like that.all the time. And I’ve done it, too,” he admitted. “Today, I was cleaning the blackboard for Miss White and was working away there, all alone, when something blew off her desk. I picked it up and started to put it back, and then I saw what it was. It was the questions for the test tomorrow. And—I looked at them. And the trouble is—I still remember some of them. What am I gonna do about that test tomorrow?” “What do you think you should do?” “Well—Miss White already knows. She came in and saw me, ’Course I ought to tell her I’m sorry,'and I will, but . . . say! Jim, do you ’spose I could ask her to give me another test that the other kids don’t get? Would that make it right?” “I rather think it would, Johnny,” Jim replied huskily, and Johnny won­ dered what made Jim’s eyes shine like that. “And now I want to give you this Testament,” Jim went on. “It is God’s own Word. I want you to read it every day, pray to the Lord every day, and tell others about Him- Will you?” * “Sure. Thanks a lot, Jim.” “Don’t thank me. Thank the Lord Jesus tonight when you go to bed, and every day. Don’t forget, now; He wants you to tell others about Him. Tell me about how ypu are getting along, next time I see you. Good-bye, Johnny.” “So long, Jim.” Superman was forgotten and lay in the dust where he had fallen as Johnny whistled his way toward his own home. He had a real hero in his heart now, the living presence of the Lord Jesus Christ,

AN EASTER QUESTION . By FRANCES TATLOW BROWNING Two children of a different hue. Each born in different countries, too. Stood near a window, side by side. Both blue and brown eyes open wide. Gazing at postcards there displayed Attractively, to catch the trade. As I waited there, a friend to see, A startling thought they gave to me. "Oh, see the Easter cards!" cried one, "I think that Easter is such fun— You get such pretty little tricks: Soft ducklings, bunnies, or wee chicks. With candy eggs, and postcards, too. I just love Easter time—don't you? Just see that cunning card right there— Two little chicks behind a hare!" The brown-eyed one, from distant land. Said, "I don't 'zactly understand: I thought I heard our teacher say That Easter was a Holy Day ■ When Jesus Christ came from the grave. And, 'cause He did, that He can save Each one of us from staying dead. And take us up to heaven, instead. "1 felt so glad, 'cause I'm afraid Of death." said this small brown-eyed maid; "The teacher told of flowers bright. That blossomed in that spring-day's light; She told us, too, of angels fair— But she said nothing of a hare. Or chick, or duck, or candy egg— So tell me of these things, 1 beg." A puzzled look crept o'er the face Of the wee maid of my own race. But, e'er her answer I could hear, I saw my hurrying friend appear. And soon we passed within the crowd. Amidst the city's noises loud. Could YOU unto the brown-eyed maid. Have made reply to what she said? Teachers of Bible classes may find the following suggestions helpful in teaching memory work to children. It is very important that the child should understand the meaning of the words in the verse of Scripture that he is attempting to memorize. To help the child both to see and to hear the verse, use visual methods. Write the verse to be memorized on the blackboard. Emphasize important words by using' colored chalk. Have the class read the verse several times as you explain the difficult words. Erase Certain words and have the class fill the blanks correctly. Give special attention to the refer­ ence also.
