I've just returned from Milford Fair,
And I tell you, children, I saw there
Many things that would make you stare:
Trumpets, flags, and guns,
Bats and balls, and sugar plums,
Horses of tin, and woolly sheep,
Little toy banks, your money to keep,
Punch and Judy, and Noah's ark,
-" Pigs that would squeal, and dogs that could bark,
And more things else than'I could tell,""
Or you remember very well,

Old Druid is so fierce and strong, .
We keep him chained the whole day long;
But when night comes we let him free,
To keep away the thieves, you see,


IThese little puppies are trying hard
Sget up a frolic with the hens in the yard.


How full of grace
Is this little vase !

He must be a useful servant to

Here' died CHATTERTON,
",Wonderful boy,"
With the gold of whose genius
Was base alloy.
More you shall know,
When you older grow.


These merchants wish to employ this man
To do a hard job, that no other can.

"Remove that bauble !"--away it went;
Thus Cromwell dissolved the Parliament.

Good old Neptune chanced to pass,
And saw his image in the glass;
He stopped, and growled, and tried
In vain, the mirror would not fight.

This speckled toad
Seems happy's a lord;
And this hairy worm,
Though it can only squirm,
And has not a cent,
Is quite content.

The man who stands here,
Dressed so queer,
Has marbles rare,
And pictures fair.
With such works of art,
So scarce and old,
He would not part
For their weight in gold.


Perhaps it may seem a singular thing,
But this is a famous African King.


"Shamefaced Billy" was this mon-
key's name;
An intelligent monkey and very
tame.

The ship which this Japanese artist drew
Looked less like a ship than it did like a shoe.


It is not right for any to fight;
If we are strong, 'tis all the more wrong,
To use the strength that God bestows,
In dealing brutal, murderous blows.

The Queen of Oude is mighty proud,
She lives in great state, as you see by this plate;
One attendant hands her fruit,
While another is playing on the lute,
A third stands near her with a fan,
A fourth is ready to do what she can.


Don't fall, hold fast,
There, you've reached
ner at last.

He much amazed the Japanese, by eating fourteen sugar geese.

For the goat won't stop
Till he's ready to drop.

This beautiful-experiment
AlwayS'affords great merriment.


The Ostrich is very strong and fleet,
But its head is about the size of its feet,
So it doesn't know much, as I suppose
you've heard,
And is generally called "the stupid bird."


A dangerous neighbor, I should
say,
And wish myself safely out of
his way.
