M R.S. Duck was very glad when that last egg
was hatched. The other fourteen had all
been hatched two days before, and the little
downy ducklings were all swimming about in the
"I hope this last one will be like the others,"
said Mrs. Duck. "I shouldn't like it to be
cowardly, and afraid of the water, like the hens."
" No, indeed," said Mr. Duck. So they took the
little new duck down to the green pond, and it
quacked for joy as soon as it saw the green water,
and went right in like a well-bred duck should do.
"There, you see, you need not have been
frightened-he is just like his mother, and that is
all I could wish," said Mr. Duck.
He is just like his father," said Mrs.

7H8 first of May is called May Day, and the
children gather flowers and make them into
wreaths and bunches, and carry them round the
village singing the little song that is on the next
Louie could not go with the other children to
gather the flowers, because her mother was ill, and
there was no one but Louie to stay with her to put
her pillows right, and give her cool drinks. So
Louie stayed at home, and mother said she was a
very good nurse. Louie tried not to care about
going round with the wreaths, but next day
mother was much better, and a neighbour came
in, and Louie was able to go out with the others.
" But I have no wreath!" she said. But the
other children had not forgotten her when they
were getting their flowers, and they had made
her a wreath and bunch prettier than any of
theirs. And Louie was very happy, for it is
pleasant to have a beautiful wreath made for you,
and pleasanter still to be loved and remembered.
OH the first of May is garland day,
Please to remember the garland,
We don't come here but cnce a year,
Please to remember the garland.

--O "" 0$O was always a
Jf L lazy boy-he is
always late for
" breakfast, and never
in time for school,
because he will not get up in the morning. He
is too lazy to learn his lessons, and too lazy to say
them if he'd learned them-so he is always in
trouble. He is too lazy to do kind things for
people, so no one loves him very much. He is
too lazy to play, and too lazy to work, and I
shouldn't wonder if he was too lazy to earn his
own living when he grows up. You see in the
picture he has sat down in the meadow, and he is
too lazy to get up again, and a spider, who is not
lazy, has built a beautiful web all over his legs.
And now what will become of him ? I am afraid
he must always stay there, for his father passed by
just now and laughed and said : Tim is fixed this
time, he's far too lazy to break a spider's web."

horse said he was made for the life." The jack-
in-the-box made a splendid clown, though he
never made any jokes when the children were
there. But the soldiers thought circus-riding
a very undignified game, and never took any part
in it. The youngest soldier hated it more than
the others, and could not bear to see the prettiest
dutch doll playing a game he couldn't play
at, and he ran away, and hid under the fender.

D &6A little cat, soft furry pet,
A sort of pussy fairy;
We hope that you will never get
In trouble in the dairy.
For though sweet milk is very nice
When it is set before you;
When you can catch and eat your mice
You'll find them better for you.
Oh! pussy dear, you need not fear
That we shall hurt your kitty;
We only want to look at her,
Because she is so pretty.
"We only want to stroke her fur,
And hear her tiny mewing;
We hope you'll teach her soon to purr,
As you are always doing.
