MASTER TOM'S ,TRANSFORMATION.

MASTER TOM'S BEDROOM.


I


Master Tom has got out of the wrong side of his bed. He has not dressed himself
properly : his hair looks as if it had been brushed with a broom; and he has not
half washed his face. His mamma tells him to put away his things; and how does
he do it ? Why, he throws a boot on the bed, and his ,brush on the ground: he
knocks the chairs over, and turns every thing topsy-turvy. Tom is a torment. He
does not care for anybody; nothing pleases him; and he has no great cause to be
pleased with himself.

I THE PIGEONS' BATH. II


As Master Tom does not choose to dress himself properly, he does not like to see
anybody else do so. Pigeons have no need to be cleaner than he. The good pigeons
are taking their morning bath in some nice fresh water; they are doing quite right,
and are very happy. Master Tom cannot bear to see them, and a piece of mischief
comes into his head.

MASTER TOM'S TRANSFORMATION.


POOR PIGEONS!


Whenever a naughty idea comes into Ton's head, he soon puts it into practice. He
gives the poor pigeons' bath a kick, and over it goes; and the poor pigeons fly away,
frightened out of their wits. What a nice funny thing to have done! No wonder
he laughs about it. If I were behind him I know who woula pull his ears for him.
How ugly Master Tom's face looks when he has been doing something naughty! When
people are pleased because they have hurt or vexed somebody they always look
ugly.

WISE PIGEONS!

Master Tom is served out: he is left all alone. The pigeons are safe now from his
naughty tricks. He tries to persuade them to come back, and throws them some
corn ; but they will not come. They will not trust Master Tom, and they are quite
right. Dumb creatures know their enemies very well, and Master Tom tries in vain
to make them believe that he is their friend.

MASTER TOM'S TRANSFORMATION.


|| PUSSY WASHING HERSELF.

Master Tom looks about for a new victim, and soon finds one. Pussy is a clean
creature and gives herself a good wash every morning. Is not this like telling Master
Tom that he ought to do so too? So Master Tom goes very quietly up to, Pussy,
and lifts up his foot-what is he going to do?


---- I I I I






MASTER TOM'S TRANSFORMATION.


Oh, the naughty, naughty boy! How he must have hurt poor Pussy! And the
cruel boy is delighted with the effect of his kick. It is the finest kick he has ever
given. Pussy has gone up almost as high as the pigeons. Tom thinks Pussy looks
very funny as she flies like that through the air.

PUSSY IS NOT A PIGEON.


Master Tom does not laugh long: the fun is soon over. Pussy is not a pigeon.
If you stroke her she purrs, but if you hurt her she can pay you off. She pays
Master Tom for his kick with some good scratches on his face. He will think twice
before he touches Puss again.

TURK IS THIRSTY.


I!


Master Tom has been rather frightened. He thought he should have had his eyes
scratched out; but he is not cured of his tricks' yet. He will take care how he
touches a cat again; but dogs are such good creatures, you may tease them as much
as you like. Armed with a sharp-pointed stick, Master Tom discovers a new game
for himself and a new way of teasing somebody else. Turk is thirsty; so every time
he goes to the water to drink, Tom thinks it good fun to prick his nose with the
point of his stick.

TOM'S SECOND FRIGHT.


Turk lets him do so at first. He is so strong that he can afford to be patient. At
last, however, he gets angry, and flies at Tom. For a minute Tom thought he should
be eaten up alive. If he had not been chained, Turk certainly would have made but
two bites of the bad boy, and everybody would have been avenged. What a fine
fright he had It is not always pleasant to be a teaze.

TWO UGLY FACES.


However, Master Tom, as he has escaped with nothing worse than a fright, goes on
in the same way. What two ugly faces those are, Master Tom's and that great big
beast's! He is threatening him with a stone. Master Tom's enemy is not a pleasant-
looking creature. If I were in Tom's place, I should think twice before I attacked
him.

A GOOD LESSON.


II


It is too late. Master Tom did not stop to think, and he is well paid out. Teasing
Tom will know for the future that pigs (we must call people by their names) do
not like to have stones thrown at them. The pig is as angry as he can be, and
'shows his anger in a way that is not to be mistaken. I cannot say the pig is
wrong. However badly Master Tom's attack upon his enemy may have turned out,
he has well deserved it. If the battle ends in his defeat, so much the better, and
nobody will complain.

The animal, fortunately, does not follow up his victory. Master Tom beats a retreat;
but he is not able to execute the manceuvre as quickly as he would wish, for he is
very much hurt, and it is easy to see that he cannot walk very quickly.






MASTER TOM'S TRANSFORMATION.


Master Tom is obliged to keep his room. The dressing of the wound was very
painful, and he does not know how to move. They say the place is in a bad state,
and much swelled. He is confined to his room for a whole fortniglht, and he has
plenty of time to think seriously. Let us hope that he may profit by the lesson.

A WONDERFUL CHANGE.


Mr. Pig (we must be polite to everybody) has made a marvellous cure-a proof that
everybody is of some use in the world. Thanks to the teaching of this excellent
tutor, Master Tom has become an altered character. What a wonderful change both
within and without! Master Tom has begun to wash himself most carefully!

BRUSH AND COMB.


And look how he combs his hair! It is charming to see-you might count the
hairs on his head. And he does not throw his brush on the ground now. And he
is actually looking at himself in the glass. I do believe he is trying to make his
own parting: and so much the better, for when a little boy begins to be neat and
orderly, his thoughts must be getting into order too.

NOBODY WOULD KNOW HIM AGAIN

You would not know Master Tom. Can this nice little boy, so neatly dressed, who
sets to work at his lessons without being told-can it be that same horrid little
troublesome Tom, odious to man and beast? Yes! the very same boy! but oh,
how different !
