Here we see a Christmas Tree,
Laden with tdys, for good girls and boys,
And abundance of fruit, which I think may suit
The palates of all, both great and small.

How ruffled and startled this birdie So fond of dancing is Caroline Hill,
appears, Though all alone she can't keep still.
I wonder what it can be he fears!








Look here, Miss Jane, don't write a
word more
Till you have picked up these books
from off the floor. Twelve miles I've walked since half past
three,
And am just as tired as I can be,
So down I'll sit beneath this tree,
lie: And eat the apples that I see;
If afterwards I fall asleep,
Faithful Fido watch will keep.



Frank sits reading his book in the
chair,
Ann sits on the floor looking cross
as a bear.

These two little children are lost in The little children here you see,
the wood, Have lain down to sleep under a tree.
Wouldn't you show them the way
out if you could ?


Sister Alice, open your eyes,
Don't you know it is time to rise?


This creature looks sad,
I guess he feels bad.


Puss looks as if she would like very
well
To taste the bird that boy has to sell.


*. B, for Button
Which M makes;
M, for Mutton
Which B bakes.

These three, as you can see,
Are having a pic-nic under the tree;
The other's a Gipsey, I know very well,
And she has come their fortunes to tell.


"Don't go near the bull," was my very last word,
And I am quite sure that Henry heard-
But he did not obey me and you see where he is;
I'm sorry indeed, but the fault was his.

That he has sometimes been known even

A terrible glutton was John Drew,
He ate enough for any two.

C stands for Cowslips,
Crackers and Cheese.

Eating and Ease.


This knight to yonder castle is going I heard him say;
But only look at those monsters standing in the way.

What countrymen do you suppose are these ?
I'll tell you-they are Japanese,-
And fishermen too. What singular dress !
Do you know it is woven of seaweed and grass ?
























Must it not be nice and cool

As firmly as if it was held in a vice.

How grand to see the waters whirled

Down the river, then rapidly hurled

Over the brink,

I shudder to think

Of one's falling in

Amid the din.

How they pour!

What a fearful roar!

Earth's sublimest of all

Is surely Niagara's marvellous Fall.

And a man kneels to receive her commands.


And here, still lower down,

To go right home from school,
And not stop by the way,
As these boys have, to play.
