AB C OF NATURE.

A stands for the Anchor we cast
in the sea,
To hold the ship fast where we
wish it to be.
B stands for the Baker who makes
men their bread,
The great staff of life on which
nations are fed.
.C stands for a Chinaman; here one
you see
Walking amidst his plantations of
tea.

D for Dromedary; oer deserts he
strays,
And goes without water for many
long days.






E stands for Elk, in cold countries
he's found;
With Elks the American forests
abound.

F stands for the Fruit that in sum-
mer we eat,
And find so refreshingly cooling and
sweet.

f stands for Giraffe, which is able,
you see,
"To eat the top leaves from the
branch of a tree.


H for Hippopotamus, savage and
strong;
By the African marshes he wanders
along.
