JY UBLISHER,
G. W. CARLETON:
To you, my esteemed friend,
I dedicate this little book, which, in part, owes its
style and character to your efforts.
"We have toiled over its pages hand in hand,
till it has assumed its present complete form.
Whatever in this book is untrue, or uncertain,
or incomplete, belongs to you; whatever is true, or
noble, or helpful is mine.
Your friend,
FANK BELLEw.

Mental Thistles.


"Why does an Ass

Prefer thistles to grass ?

Is a puzzle to many no doubt;

But the answer comes swift, as a flash from the
skies,

And if it's not witty it is not unwise:-

The brute turns away with contempt from the
grass,

For the plain simple reason---because he's an
ass.



Why does not the fool prefer virtue to vice ?

When one is so vile the other so nice.

The answer we find, by the very same rule.

The fool prefers vice, just because he's a fool..
38





















Here is an ass.

Can an ass fly ?

Oh no, an ass can not
fly, but a good many have
tried-in a balloon.
39





A Place for Everything and Every-
thing in its Place.

"Order is heaven's first law,"-this being
the case, the boy in the opposite picture is
perfectly justified in kicking the pig out
of the house. Perhaps he is kicking him a
little higher than is absolutely necessary,
but still 'tis better to kick a pig high,
than to break the first law of heaven. What
a pity is it that all such animals cannot be
kicked out of their wrong places into their
right places for, of course every created thing
has a right place, somewhere. A great states.
man once said," dirt is only matter in thewrong
place." Alas! what a pity there are not always
nice boys like the one in our cartoon with big
feet and the rectus femoris well developed, to
eject people from their wrong places I
40





















That is right. Kick the pig
out of the house.
The pig should be in the sty
or in the mud.

He must not live in the
house.
41






Rural Scene.

See, there is an Agriculturist. He reclines
against the ligneous handle of one of nature's
sun-shades. There is bucolic youth seated on a
prostrate column, he has a hoe, it is a nice hoe.
There is an equestrian animal and a bovine
animal. There is a swine, and a canine and a
feline. Tbh -anine is a good canine; he says
bow-wow--wow, but he will not hurt the
feline. The feline catches rats and mice and
birds and hooks the butter off the breakfast-
table. There is a hen and a duck and a bird
on the fence. The hen lays eggs and incubates.
The duck is a rara avis on the tables of the poor
but Adolphus shall have some for dinner one
day. It is not wrong for a bird to be on the
fence. There is a church; Adolphus should go
to church every Sunday for there he will acquire
ecclesiastical, ethical and religious knowledge
which will make Adolphus a good and wise boy.
We have forgotten the goat. There is a goat.
The goat is a ruminant animal which eats
brown paper and says Ba-a-a-h !"
