LITTLE ROST'S PICTURE-BOOK.While little baby has been soill Charlie and Annie have triedhow much they can help. Charliehas taken great pains with the gar-den, putting the baskets and spades,and rakes, and all such things, awayin one corner, and watering theflowers, that they may look nicewhen she is well enough to go outagain. Annie has been just as busy"I /indoors, and has often tired herselfvery much with the great broom.4kQI

LITTLE ROST'S PICTURE-BOOK.But when her work is all done _Miss Annie thinks it is proper tomake herself not only neat andtidy, but also smart and grand; .but she has made a great mistake,and if she knew how silly and vainshe looks, I think she would feel _very. much ashamed, and hercheeks would blush till they be-came as red as the grapes hangingon the vine, over the porch.'LAI

LITTLE ROST'S PICTURE-BOOK.Charlie thinks it would be verynice to be a little shepherd boy, andtake care of the sheep and goats onthe hills, in the countries where thegrapes grow in the fields, and wherethey make the bright red wine. Hewould have a little crook, and a finelarge dog, and'he would spend allday climbing about on the rocks,and playing with his sheep.j \

LITTLE ROSY'S PICTURE-BOOK.At other times he thinks heshould like better to be a sai-lor, that he may see a greatmany countries, and go sailingabout all over the sea.

LITFLE ROST'S PICTURE-BOOK.Annie is beginning to learnto work with a needle andthread, but she does not likeit at all; and to-day her workwill be badly done, I am afraid,for she is not thinking of whatshe is doing, but of a funnypicture of a boy in the air,which Charlie says is meantfor the west wind; and of thecoral islands that are built byinsects under the water, whichhe has been telling her about.J.*<-"I -- '- iSTRASBURGIT, PRINTED a.
