Robert Chivers never looked
at and counted his fingers, which
were arrayed like ten smart
young soldiers all in pink upon
his plump fat hand, and won-
dered what they were made for.
"Oh, dear, no"-he had not time
for that; he was too busy with
mischief for reflection. His time
was taken up in picking, poking
and soiling everything within his

His mother left him home one
day, telling him not to leave the
room until her return. This he
promised he would do, and after
she had been away some time, he

looked around to see what he
should do to amuse himself.
STick, tick, went the clock, and
as it fell upon Robert's ears he
thought he would make the tick
go faster. Taking his father's
cane which stood in the corner,
he clambered up on a chair-back
and moved the wheels. Finding

this did not do, he struck the
pendulum so hard that the clock
fell to the floor with a crash,
and broke to pieces at his feet.
Frightened at the mischief he
had done, he hid himself in the
cellar, for fear his mother- w.-ouild
whip him. Even here he found
mischief for idle hands to do.



Playing with the spicket of the
vinegar cask, he pulled it too
hard and out it came, conse-
quently the vinegar flew with
great force against him, spoiling
all his new clothes, and nearly
suriucating him. His mother hav-
ing returned, heard him scream,
and ran to his assistance, or he
might have been drowned in the
Mrs. Chivers did not whip Rob-
ert, as most mothers would have
-done, but after washing and
dressing him, she talked kindly
to him, and pointed out all the
difficulties which lay in the way
of mischievous hands. Robert

promised with tears in his eyes,
that he would do better, and
even offered the pennies out of
his tin savings' bank, to buy

His tears were like April show-
ers-transient; and his promises
like pie-crust-to be broken; for
in less than a week, he went into
the parlor, brandishing a long

struck a little centre-table, up-
setting it, and with it a large
glass globe filled with gold and
silver fish. The globe was shiv-

carpet; leaving it all, he rushed
to the kitchen fire to dry himself,

cook, was very .angry at him for
this, and told him she would tell
his mother of him, so out of re-
venge he went into the garden
and upset one of her bee hives,
whereupon the bees flew at him

it cured him of his mischievous
