A LARK and a green-finch were hung up at a man's door. The lark sang a sweet song, and as it sang, the man's son, a boy of nine, heard it. “Which of these two," thought he, "sings such a sweet song? I must see it.” To please him, his papa took both the birds down, and said, Now, here are both—which do

you

think sings such a sweet song ?” The boy did not take a breath to think of it, and fix it in his mind. “It ' must be the one that is such a nice green. You may be sure it cannot be that brown one; it is so plain !" But he was wrong. Don't judge of things by their looks.
