THEZOOLOGICAL GARDENS.HEN you go to the Zoo', you must look forall the animals in this Alphabet. You willfind the Ape and the Elephant and the Foxthere; and the Lynx, the Porcupine, the Rhinoceros, andthe Tiger. You will see also the Lion, the King ofBeasts, who can be tamed, and is then as good and kindas a dog; and the Leopards, that jump about so nimbly.There also you will see the Brown Bears climbing uptheir pole, and you will know then that they can easilyclimb trees also. Give them a bun, for they are as fondof sweets as children are.Then go and look at the Seal in his tank of water.You will see how fond he is of his keeper. The Seal isa very sensible creature. His home is near the NorthPole, and his thick soft fur makes him able to bear thecold seas, and to lie on the ice without- being frozen.Seals are kind to their little ones, and live in families,-Papa and Mamma Seal and the children.Be sure not to pat the Wolf, taking him for a dog, as achild we knew once did, as he may perhaps bite; indeed,it is best not to touch any creature in the Gardens.


The Polar Bear is a fine old fellow, but would behappier in his home of ice and snow; his fur is so thickthat he must be much too warm in summer.Go and look at the Giraffes. They are elegant-lookinganimals. Their long necks are given them that they mayfeed on the branches and boughs of high trees, and whenthey have to stoop to drink, they look rather awkward.The Giraffe runs very fast, and is so strong that it canfight with the Lion, though it runs away from himalways, if it can.What wonderful creatures GOD has made! Lions,Tigers, Leopards, Bears, Camels, and the others; nearlyall of them for the use or pleasure of men. We are sureyou will think of how great and good GOD is when youvisit the Zoo'.

ALPHABET OF ANIMALS. stands for APE, who has four clever hands: He lives in great woods in the tropical lands. B stands for BOAR, a most savage wild pig, With his terrible tusks for roots he can dig. stands for CAT, who grows fond of the house, And very much likes to run after a mouse. D stands for DONKEY, -a poor patient beast, Who thinks some fresh thistles a very great feast. The Baldwin Library 'nBSmf3

F for the Tiger, most savage of beasts, Who on all living creatures most readily feasts. U is for UN ICORN, -well known in fable; To find him alive I think no one is able.

The Polar Bear is a fine old fellow, but would be happier in his home of ice and snow; his fur is so thick that he must be much too warm in summer. Go and look at the Giraffes. They are elegant-looking animals. Their long necks are given them that they may feed on the branches and boughs of high trees, and when they have to stoop to drink, they look rather awkward. The Giraffe runs very fast, and is so strong that it can fight with the Lion, though it runs away from him always, if it can. What wonderful creatures GOD has made! Lions, Tigers, Leopards, Bears, Camels, and the others; nearly all of them for the use or pleasure of men. We are sure you will think of how great and good GOD is when you visit the Zoo'.
