TO OUR YOUNG FRIENDS.THE creatures in earth, in sea, and air,That range creation through,Were fashioned all by the selfsame powerThat made both me and you.All tell their Maker's wondrous might,All of His goodness tell;So, child, despise no animal,But treat each creature well.r~i +

THEOFBIRDS, BEASTS, AND FISHES.THE OX.HE OX is a very useful animal. Not only is hisflesh very good food, but he is often made todraw carts and waggons, or to tug the plough. through the heavy soil. His hide, horns, and hoofs,are all useful in various ways. There are a greatmany kinds of oxen.

This is called a Bison. It is a sort of wild Bull, and theyare found in large numbers on the great plains of America. Herewe have an Indian Cowand Calf; the Indians,or Hindoos, think highlyof these creatures. Theyare very beautiful, and x- -quite tame, but we likeour own Cows best.

THE THIEVES AND THE ASS.Two thieves, pursuing their pro-fession,Had of a donkey got possession,Whereon a strife arose," Which went from words toblows.---.

We"sometimes say that DonkeysSYRIAN ASS. .are stupid, but they are onlystupid when they are made so by unkind treatment. In Syria, andother Eastern countries, the Donkey is valued as highly as theHorse. There great menand ladies ride on Donkeys,which have beautiful sad-dles and bridles. Here isa picture of a Syrian Ass.Does it not look nice andsleek ? It goes along ata gentle trot, and will pre-sently have a fine dinner ofchopped straw, barley, and h^ -1beans. Here is anotherkind of Donkey, called theKiang; it is both large andstrong, and most people 7would say handsome. Whatdo you think of it ? THE KIANG DONKEY.10

It is evening, andsoon the ploughman will leave off ploughing, and go home tohis supper. A great deal of milk is obtained from our Englishcows, and much butter and cheese made, particularly in Cheshireand Gloucestershire.

See this otherpicture. These gentlemen are riding at a great pace; they arehunting a Fox: one of them in leaping a hedge has tumbled off hishorse. I hope he is not much hurt.

And here are a lot ofKittens leaping about their kind mamma, and having a fine game.How quiet she sits as they jump about her, and play at hide-and-seek, just as you may do! Poor Pussy, she loves her little Kittensdearly. Here she is again, looking very grave. Most likely her Kittenshave gone to sleep, and given her a little quiet time to herself. Shelooks quite smart with the red ribbon which her good mistress hasput round her neck.20

It is an -animal somewhat resemblingthe sheep; and in other re- ,aspects it is like the goat.Llamas are very sure-footedand strong; and therefore they " ':are used in a country calledPeru, in carrying the silver -obtained from the mines down- -- "A -" ;lt :- Mountains. This duty theLlamas perform with great- perseverance and much clever-4 np^ ness. But they will not allowthemselves to be hurried inS their work, and if teazed or4: annoyed they will lie down,' and then it is very difficultF- to make them get up again.- ; The hairy coat of the Llama- is woven into a kind of stuffthat is both light and warm,and therefore very useful.SHEEP AND LAMBS.24

Thelords and ladies are riding out on their horses, and their falcons-birds trained to fly after others and catch them in the air-arecarried on frames by the falconers; while a favourite falcon sits onthe lord's or the lady's wrist. Falcons were very much valued inold times; and any one who injured a bird of this kind was veryseverely punished; more severely, indeed, than if he had injured aman or a woman.25

GENTLE BLEATERS.THERE is nothing morepeaceful than to see a lot ofSheep in their pasture. Theylook so quiet and so happy., Some people say they are silly,S but this is not quite true. AsOUFFON. a rule, they are very timid,and, as if they knew the oldsaying about union being strength, they always huddle together.But Gentle Bleaters quarrel sometimes, and will fight desperately.Their mode of fighting is to butt at one another with their headsbent low, giving some sounding cracks. Sheep have, then, somecourage in them. Besides this, Sheep are very good judges ofthe weather: they knowwhich side of the hedgeto be when there is astorm coming.Sheep, even in Eng-land, differ a good dealin their appearance;but some foreignSheep are quite un- ilike ours. You will ,see this by looking "Jat the pictures of theMoufflon and theAoudad given on thispage. AOUDAD.81

IaCASHMERE GOATS.GOATS.WHAT odd-looking Goats these are, and what long, finehair they have! These are called Cashmere Goats. Theyare of middle size, and their silky hair is long, flat, and veryfine.

It is to the hair of the CashmereGoat that the ladies owe those delicate shawls which bearthe name of Cashmere, and are so highly prized. " MyBillygoat" is on the other side, and does not he look noblewith his fine horns and his long beard? He is eating hissupper, and seems as if he liked it.

THE MUSK OX. THE GNU._ The Musk Ox is very smallfor an ox, and in some re-spects resembles a sheep; forit is covered with a woollyI coat. It is found in the coldparts of North America.The Gnu lives in SouthAfrica. It looks somethinglike a small horse, but it has""' horns, like an ox. It is veryswift and fierce, but can betamed when taken young.S Gnus live together in largeherds.AFRICAN AND INDIAN BUFFALOES.Buffaloes are very large,strong, and fierce creatures. 'They have immense horns, ,and are so powerful that theycan even fight with the lion.Their flesh is tough and hard,but can be eaten. They havevery thick hides. The Buffalois found wild both in SouthernAfrica and in India. Its hide,horns, hoofs, and sinews, are -all made useful by man.86

ITALIAN BULL AND COW.COWS.r Cows are very affectionate to those who are good to them; theyare kind to those who are kind. In the Highlands of Scotland, wherethe Cows run wild during the summer, and come back to their ownerswhen the snow begins to fall, there are many instances of strongattachment. With a gentle lowing the poor animals will recognizethose whom they have not seen for months, and show, in their way,all kinds of fond greeting. Some Cows are disposed for music, andthey like the maid to sing sweetly as she milks them into hermilking pail. It is rather awkward sometimes when a Cow that hasbeen used to a singing milkmaid is milked by one who cannot singat all. There was a farmer who owned a Cow of this kind. She wasone of the gentlest of animals, and stood quite patient while her milkersang. One day a strange maid tried to milk Floss. But there wasno music, and after waiting awhile over went the pail of milk.87- -.: z -. > .-',,.. -, -- _--: '2"-' _--=.=_ "- -_C " .21 .fh--_~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~A ..I_... .._:-.:- ..,o .-;..,,87
