THE DEWDROPS.--A child, one too wise and good for this world, saw on a summer's morning that the dewdrops did not lie and glitter upon the flowers, for the angry sun came in its might, and dried them up, and they were seen no more. Soon a rainbow was seen in the clouds, and his father told him,. "There are the dewdrops over which thou didst grieve, and they now shine in splendor in heaven, and no foot can crush them; and remember, my child, if thou vanishest soon from earth, it will be to shine in heaven."
