TOBY SPINNING THE DISHES.
With plate upon three bottles,
And jug a-top of that;
See Toby spinning dishes,
I Tn ruff and feathered hat.
SYouing Til, with leN s extended,
And heels high in the air,
Sits grinning out 1b.,tween them,
S To make the children stare.
While to the people Jacko shliws
The spinning-plate oil Tobv's nose.

THE DOGGY DESERTER.
Here's a Doggy deserter who fled from his post,
But was caught and brought back, looking pale as a ghost.
When tried, the court-martial said he must be shot!
I am sure you would pity his very sad lot,
Unless you were told, when the story is done,
That the shooting, of Doggy, was only in fun.

BEPPO JUMPS THROUGH THE HOOP.

The Pony stands with docile grace,
As on his back a hoop they place;
While Beppo mounts another steed,

And urging him to highest speed-
The horse and rider, with a spring
Ii Go teariniig throw' the paper ring.
i i Jack holds the Pony tight you see,
SWhile Tip seems full of inisvy glee!

THE CHARIOT RACE.

Hurrah! Hurrah! With snorting steeds
And din of trump and drum,
In Roman Chariots, Jack and Tip
Like ancient heroes come.
With slashing blows, their whips they ply,
They struggle side by side;
'Till Jacko wins the race at last
With shouts of noisy pride-
And round the ring as conqueror,
His panting horses guide!

MISS LILY'S RIDE..

My Lord Tom Noddy comes with chaise and pair,
And asks Miss Lily out to take the air;
How gallantly he bows, and hands her in!
So gay a beau the lady fair must win.
SSoin, side by si'de like l-vers they'll appear.
He'll talk s1'ft n ilnstnst in tie maiden's (ar.-
As quii.-kly afi11 thle nimble ,')oats will spring,
--- Awnd cirrIl' daily y riund tle Circus rinl!-!

THE ACCIDENT.

But Oh dear me! What's happened now?
The chaise has broken down, I vow!
A wheel flies off-the maid falls out.
And for a moment kicks about
In sad alarm and disarray;
Then thinks it wise to faint away!
... The fitimian hrin_,-s the w-a terini-pot-
Uj'p sp-rings the maid, her feai:rs forgot;

THE MONKEY'S SWING.

Three Monkeys chatter here at play,
Pug is standing in the ring-
Thro,,wing up the shining balls,
As Tim is sitting in the swing.
Jacko jerks it. with a r'l pe.
Tiil ,ets utp a frightened, shout
As if fearing Jacko means
From the swing to spill him out!
Holding tightly by his toes,
Screaming as he swinging goes!

The Monkeys' at the table sit;
They seem to be of soldier breed-

While Colonel Pluck politely greets

THE MONKEYS' WHEEL-RIDE.

'Tis enough to make ev'ry ones eyes open wide,
And look with delight at this wonderful ride;
As perched on the wagon-wheel-up and now down,
Two noisy young Monkeys haste swiftly to town.
The Monkey postilion cries loudly Hip! Hip!
The Dogs fairly leap at the crack of the whip-
While in spite of the jolting and bumping, the two

DANCING ON A PLATFORM.

A Monkey Cavalier now comes in view,
What does this gallant horseman mean to do ?
High mounted on a rearing mettled steed-
Around the ring he goes with breathless speed;
A moment pauses by a platform round,
A little distance raised above the ground-
Then ,ni it riiidcsl his lirse, wli, quickly rears,
And IAl;ini-dl n iilis hind legs now appears; i
While round, and roiiund,. he dances like a top, '
As tho' hie really never meant to sttp .
