The 160 miles beside the beautiful Obio, on whose surface steamers and odd craft are sighted every few minutes, are succeeded by miles of graceful curves along the banks of the Big Kanawha, and then come the canons of the New River with their awful wildness and grandeur; the gentle Greenbrier with its pastoral loveliness; the heart of the Alleghenies with its matchless beauty of scenery; the famous Springs Resorts; the renowned Snenandoah Valley; the towering Blue Ridge; the wonderful panorama of the Piedmont Valley; the famous battlefields of the late war; and the surf of the Atlantic at Old Point, or the beauty and interest of Washington-just as one's destination may be.

There's a child outside your door;

Let him in.
He may never pass it more;

Let him in.
Let a litte wandering waif
Find a shelter sweet and safe
In the love and light of home:

Let him come.
There's a cry along your street

Day by day.
There's a sound of little feet

Gone astray.
Open wide your guarded gate
For the little ones that wait,
Till a voice of love from home

Bids them come.
There's a voice divinely sweet.

Calls today;
Will you let these little feet

Stray away?
Let the lambs be homeward led,
And of you it shall be said :
"Ye have done it faithfully

Unto Me."
