THE GOOD CHILDREN.Aunt Jane at once a glad assentGave to the child's request;And gladly little Mary wentTo seat the aged guest.And soon the little girl appearedWith a bowl of milk and bread,And Rover's ears were both uprearedWhen he heard her gentle tread.He watched the bowl with wistfuleyes;And, plain as looks could speak,He said his tongue was very dry,And he had nought to eat.3

THE GOOD CHILDREN.Then John brought out some whole-some food-He was a generous boy,-It really seemed to do him goodTo see poor Rover's joy.The blind old man was very gladVVhen his dog received his share;Full fervently he blessed the lad,And thanked kind Mary's care.He sate and chatted of the past:He had an only son,Whose fate in distant lands was cast,Where glory he had won.4
