TH RO UGH lily buds and lily leaves
Their boat a "Lily" too,
Sweet Goldilocks and brown-eyed
Carl,
Glide through the water blue.
On, on they go as glad as birds,
Until they reach the land,
And there they leave their little boat,
And go home, hand in hand.







HER KITTEN.



POOR little black Topsy, I'm sorry
to say,



Is feeling



too badly

play.
So Nan said, Now, Topsy, the day
is so fair,
I think you'd feel better, dear, out in
the air.



And when you go in you



shall have



catnip tea;
I'm sure that will make you as well
as can be.



Now don't you



think,. Kitty, 'twill be



good for you ?"
But poor little Topsy could only say,
"Mew."

CARLO'S VISIT.



"G O away, you naughty dog," said
Lusie Booth, clinging to her
nurse's apron as her Cousin May
came into the nursery with a dog.
"He is not a naughty dog," said
May, "he is my own good, faithful
Carlo, and I will go home if you call
him names."
John jumped into a chair and made
faces at Carlo, making him very an-
gry, so May had to tell him to be quiet.
After they knew him better, they
learned to love him dearly, and May
was twice as welcome when she
brought him with her.











THE LUNCH



jMABEL took her doll and the dog
Pert, one day, down in the gar-
den for a long morning of play. Her
Mamma gave them a nice lunch, all



nicely put in a basket, which
carried in his mouth. Pert t



Pert
iad a



bell on his collar, and as he was
seldom quiet, Mrs. Snow knew where
they were. What a nice time they
had! and the lunch was so nice
Dolly sat up so very straight, but
Pert barked and begged for his



share, and he had it, too,



for Ma



bel always shared everything
able with him.

DAVID AND JONATHAN.

ONE of the beautiful Bible stories,
is about David and Jonathan.
King Saul became very jealous of
David, and wanted to kill him. Both
David and Jonathan felt very badly,
but they hoped the king would get
over his angry feelings, and allow
David to come to him again; but he
would not, and Jonathan had to tell
David that it would not be safe for
him to appear before his father Saul.
So David had to go away, and the
two kissed each other good-bye, and
wept, promising whatever happened
they would always love each other.

















SO







MAMIE AND T

"OH mamma! what



"HE BIRD.



is this?"



said



Mamie Snow, running up the
side of the road, followed by Topsy,



the dog.
"It is



a little bird that



has fallen



out of the tree, and I think is frozen
to death," said her mamma.



"Can't I take it home?



Perhaps I



can make it live," begged Mamie.
"Yes, dear."
So Mamie picked up the bird, and



put it in her muff, and carried



it



home, and
fire, but sh



tried to warm it by the

bird was dead.

THE COTTAGE DOOR.


COWS are lowing,
Birds are going
Homeward o'er the meadows brown.
Bees are humming,
Papa's coming,
For the sun is going down.

Mamma sees him,
Fred will please him,
With a flower fresh and bright.
Supper's ready,
After, Freddy
Kisses all, and says Good-night."

ELSIE'S FALL.



ELSIE went with her sisters and
brothers out into the woods. It
was a lovely day in May, and hun-
dreds of little flowers smiled up out
of the grass at them. Elsie found
some lovely large ferns by the side
of a large stream; and while the others
were gathering flowers, she played
with the ferns, by dipping them in the
water. All of a sudden her brothers
and sisters heard a splash, and there
was Elsie in the water. Her brother
pulled her out. She was very wet,
and very much frightened, but not a
bit hurt.

PUSSIE'S THOUGHTS.



"OH dear! What a fine cat! I am
sure that her tail is larger than
mine. Pussie, what is your name?
Why don't you answer me? I do
not think you are very polite. You
must not do everything I do. What
pretty eyes you have! I think we
look very much alike. Every time
I go behind this board you have
gone, and when I come back, here
you are again. I am quite angry at
you, and shall not stay here and look
at you any longer. My big brother
shall fight you."

SUPPER.

SUPPER'S ready! Supper's ready!
Where is little Roger's chair?
He must sit up to the table,
Supper's ready, waiting there.

Get his spoon, and get his apron,
Here's his porridge, smoking hot.
Come folks, come. Why will you
stay so?
You can come as well as not.

What comes, Roger, after supper?
I know, kisses all around,
Then a little boy is tucked up,
In his bed to sleep so sound.

THE UNFINISHED PRAYER.

"N-OW I lay me": say it, darling.
"Lay me," lisped the tiny lips
Of my daughter, kneeling, bending
O'er her folded finger-tips.

"Down to sleep": "To sleep," she mur-
mured,
And the curly head dropped low.
"I pray the Lord," I gently added:
You can say it all, I know.

"Pray the Lord": the words came
fainter;
Fainter still, "My soul to keep."
Then the tired head fairly nodded,
And the child was fast asleep.

THE NEW MACHINE.



EDDIE has been at work for a
week, making a machine that
he thought would be a wonderful
thing when it was done. Now it is
finished, he has asked his brothers
and sisters and cousins to his room
to see it work.
They have all come and it will not
work, and even nurse, who thinks
whatever Eddie does must be right,
is nearly as disappointed as he. The
children think it a good joke and laugh
at him, except Charlie, who looks as
if he would cry any minute, he is so
sorry for Eddie.
