Come, children, if your play is
And you want something else
Your passing moments to beguile,
Just take this 'book and read
Turn leaf by leaf, and slowly
For on each page is something
J. S. L.
HOW DO YOU DO?
HERE, first, a baby, bright and fair,
With eyes of blue and sunny hair,
Comes with his dog to welcome you,
Both seem to say, "How do you do ?."
These are so pretty, you must look
And see what else is in this book.
SOWING AND REAPING.
THE reaper reaps the ripening rye-
That 's grown so very rank and high;-
Last spring he scattered there the grain,-
His labors have not been in vain.
Before you, then, this lesson keep,
What's sown in youth in age you '11 reap.
A HELPING HAND.
To glide upon the glitt'ring ice
Little Miss Susie thinks it nice;
Her brother standing by her side
Is kindly teaching her to slide.-
In places where 'tis hard to stand
We often need a helping hand.
KILLING THE WEEDS.
9 ;: '
PoIsoN weeds in the garden grow-
Root them out with spade and hoe-
Wheel them away, lest they should sprout-
And crowd the blooming flowers out.
An evil thought is a dangerous weed-
To crush it out is what we need.
'TIs now the sunny morn of May,
Stern winter's storms have passed away.
These children here with flowers seen
Are twining garlands for their queen.
Taking the years as the seasons run
*You '11 always find less clouds than sun.
THREE constant friends are playing here
And Kitty seems to be in fear;-
She seems to teasing Skip to say,
"You ought not look at me that way."-
When full of frolic children may
Be often too rough in their play.
LEARNING TO SEW.
THIS little girl her apron tore
Against the rose bush by the door;
To mend the rent she's trying now
And Ma sits by to show her how.-
To use a needle and to sew
Is something .every girl should know.
THE SELFISH DOG.
Once from his perch an old magpie
Thought down to Tiger's meal he'd fly
And ask a bite from a cold bone;-
The selfish dog would give him none.
He flew away with chatting beak,
"Of selfish folks no favors seek."
- = - -r-- -
...... ...... .
THIS little lamb with wool like silk
Miss Fanny feeds with warm sweet milk
And makes for him a soft warm bed;-
.~~-- :- t :
She 's very kind-his mother 's dead.
With her he loves to skip and play;-
For all kind deeds we have our pay.
HER papa was to meet her here.
His train is late, and she 's in fear
He will not come take her home:-
How long the time to wait alone!
Learn this, my child, though 'tis no news,
The patient waiters never lose."
H '.: e will n, e tk hr h

A NATURAL HISTORY STUDY.
THESE boys have stopped to take a look
At tadpoles taken from the brook,
And also many little fish
To learn the ways of them they wish:-
From .them instruction they will find,
But they should treat them very kind.
THE GREEDY BEAR.
SEE little Lizzie and the bear,
You '11 think they nre a funny pair.
She gave him candy, just to bite,
He quickly swallowed every mite.
This remember everywhere
And don't be greedy as a bear.
HERE you can see just at one glance
This girl would teach her dog to dance;
But he will never learn at all,
Unless he learns while he is small.
This always is a proper plan,
While you are young learn all you can.
BUTTERCUPS AND DAISIES.
HERE little girls play 'mid the flowers,
And while away the sunny hours.
With butter-cups and daisies bright
They dress themselves;-a lovely sight.-
Oh, may these children ever find
Their pathway bright with love's sunshine.
HERE is a girl who 's all alone,
Kind loving playmates has she none;
So by herself she has to play
And find amusement every day.
One better be alone than be
Found mixing with bad company.
ONLY ONE POOR CHICK.
FRoM all the eggs beneath the hen
They expected chickens eight or ten.
Yet, they have only one poor chick
Which needs their care because 'tis sick.
A lesson to this is attached:
"Don't count your chickens till they're hatched."
THIS is Miss Mollie with her pets,
The care of which she ne'er forgets.
Old and young her attentions share,
And they enjoy her friendly care:
Kindness of heart in little things
Repays, in gratitude it brings.
To gather berries rich and bright
Gives these two children much delight.
The eldest miss stands picking there,
But little sister gets a share.-
To live unselfish be your plan,
And share with others when you can.
You can see here they've broke the rule.
No one should whisper in the school;-
The teacher caught them at the trick,-
See him approaching with his stick.-
There is no doubt these lads will say,
"Transgressors have the hardest way."
MUST GET THE LESSON.
"I CANNOT go with you to play,
A lesson I must learn to-day."
So said this steady, sober lad
Whose goodness makes his parents glad.
A lesson here for one and all:
No wisdom comes from playing ball.
HERE is trouble as you can see.
This dog and cat cannot agree.
They each would like to have that chair;-
They are a very selfish pair.
And where'er selfishness is found
There always quarrels will abound.
HASTEN, hasten and don't be late,
You better run at swiftest gait.
Let others never wait for you,
Be on hand in whatever you do.
Always keep your promised time
And never, never be behind.
WAIT A MINUTE.
" Now you must -wait till this is done,
Then I will feed you, every one;
And it must cool before one sips:-
Once by hot food you burned your lips.
To burn again you've no desire ?
For those once burned will fear the fire."
A HOBBY HORSE.
THIS boy rides an oaken limb,
It is a hobby horse for him;
The summer winds the branches toss,
'Tis as real to him as a live horse,
He, like others, when older grown,
Some other hobby horse will own.
CROSSING THE STREAM.
THE berries grow beyond the brook;
For them these children wish to look,
And as no bridge has there been made
Through the waters they must wade:-
Of future troubles do not dream,
And never cross till you reach a stream.
A STREET ACQUAINTANCE.
THESE children have an old tame bear:-
He has just broken from his lair;
He seems quite kind and walks quite straight
And yet he is a dangerous mate.
Companions choose with special care;
Of street acquaintances beware.
LEARNING TO COOK.
THIS little girl upon the floor
Is watching by the oven door.
She's reading in a new cook-book
Because she wants to learn to cook.
It is a fact, that all girls should
Know how to nicely cook their food.
THE snow has covered all the seeds,
There's nothing for the sparrows' needs:-
Each hungry birdie daily comes
And Ethel feeds them with the crumbs.-
For her kind deed they '11 gladly pay
With a sweet song some bright spring day.
A LETTER from a distant friend;-
How glad to read from end to end.
There's nothing more the heart to cheer
Than from our absent ones to hear.
As water in a sultry day
So is good news from far away.
(.: 2 ', : -

HERE is the great Napoleon:-
Mighty armies led he on;
And yet he died in lone exile
On St. Helena's dreary isle.
A lesson here for one and all,
There 's none so great but they may fall.
,.; i-:: .. '!,-- / t ;- '"'o ,"
A MOTHER'S LOVE.
THms little lad with aching head
Is lying ill upon his bed;
His mother bathes his aching brow
As only mother's care-knows how:-
It is a fact above all others
No love on earth is like a mother's.
IN the forest over the way
Other children have gone to play,
Were it not that Fred is kind
Little Miss May must stay behind:-
'Tis always right for boy or man
To help another when he can.
HERE is a picture of Miss May;
She's teaching youthful Spitz to play;
While he is young 'tis just the time
To fix these antics in his mind.
This proverb in your mem'ry fix,
"A dog that's old won't learn new tricks."
MAKE A GOOD FOUNDATION.
TRNG to build a tower tall,
See how likely it is to fall.
Carefully place each domino
Or down your tott'ring tower '11 go.
Learn to lay the foundation sure,
Then your structure will endure.
Then your structure will endure.
LITTLE BY LITTLE.
DROPS of water and grains of sand
Make the ocean and make the land,
And moments spent in work or play
Make up the hours of the day;
Thus months and years go quickly by;
Improve them, children, as they fly.
THE children here are having fun
In ways that never should be done.
To this mouse within the trap
His capture is a sad mishap.
No doubt he says at their device,-
"What's fun for boys is pain for mice.
THE FAITHFUL DOG.
THIS shepherd dog guards well the sheep
And watches by them while they sleep;-
He follows them by night and day
And keeps the hungry wolves away-
He guards his trust early and late.
His faithfulness let's imitate.
Two happy sisters here we see,
In all their sports they well agree;
They pluck bright flowers, leaves and grass
And chase the butterflies that pass:-
If children all would thus agree,
Like these, they would most happy be.
THE BLIND BOY.
THIS little boy is wholly blind;
About, his way he could not find,
'Cept for his dog-which leads his way
And begs for money when they play.
If little dogs kind deeds can do
,Much greater ones should come from you.
Two little girls sat down to chat;
They talked of this and then of that;-
Of other playmates no one heard
Them speak a single harmful word.
This lesson learn: Sisters and brothers,
You never should speak ill of others.
IN THE MEADOWS.
IN the meadows picking daisies
Through the forests' shady mazes
Full of sport and full of play
These children wear their hours away.-
Don't think, children, life 's all fun,
There 's always hard work to be done.
TELL THE TRUTH.
"TELL me, my boy, tell me true,
Who broke the window, was it you 2"
"Yes, Grandma, it went all to smash
When my ball bounced againstt the sash."
That's right, my boy; this motto try:
Like Washington ne'er tell a lie."
A FRIEND IN NEED.

THE tide is coming fast this way,
The ocean's power naught can stay;
'Twill deeply roll across the place
And of their structures leave no trace;
'Tis well to have a friend near by
To warn of danger when 'tis nigh,.
LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP.
A DOG as cross as dogs can be
Once frightened Kitty up a tree;
The children coaxed her to come down;-
She feared to jump upon the ground.-
This cautious Kitty's motto keep
And always "look before you leap."
THE KIND LASS.
THROUGEH the meadows, through the grass
Roams this radiant, rosy lass;-
To sick and poor she sends bright flowers
To cheer them in their lonely hours.
There is one thing we all should try:-
To do as we would be done by.
BABY boy in sister's lap,
Just waking from a noon-day nap;
From his sweet smiles, it often seems,
He talks with angels in his dreams.
From baby life this lesson comes:-
The greatest men once sucked their thumbs.
- -""~BiR,"" P~9alii~
Miss Effie waiting to begin
To play upon her violin;-
If she with skill would learn to play,
Hard must she study every day.
Though dry and hard are knowledge's roots
SFragrant and sweet will be its fruits.-
THIS aged man thinks of the past,
Of days and hours flown so fast,
It seems but a short time since he
Play'd like the children that we see.
Remember, then, this worthy rhyme,
We can not stop the wheels of time.
A SAD MISHAP.
WISHING to take her doll to ride
Kate to a cart her Kitty tied.
To do such work did Kitty spurn
And so upset the whole concern.
Kate cried and said, at this sad loss,
"Don't get your cart before the horse.'
SAID thieving Tom, "I've often guessed
There's young birds up there in that nest;
I can take one, there is no doubt "-
In went his paw-it don't come out.-
Here by this picture we are taught,
Dishonest folks are often caught.
WAITING FOR THE SHIP.
" WHEN things I ask for I am told,
"' Wait till the ship comes in with gold.'
And so I've waited day by day;
Why don't that vessel come this way ?"
The sailor said, and gently laughed:
"Many are waiting for that eraft."

THESE ducks, they paddle in the drain
And in the mud and dirt and rain;
Their habits are not very clean,
Yet in bright plumage they are seen.-
This fact will prove these common words:
"Fine feathers often make fine birds."
'TIs autumn, and the leaves are red
Upon the maples, over head;-
Frost-flowers bright and golden-rod
Along the wayside hedges nod.-
Remember this, dear girl and boy,
Each season brings some special joy.
JOKER, the horse, is glad to find
Jumbo, the cat, so very kind;
Around his nose will Jumbo purr
And stroke it with his silky fur.-
It is a pleasant sight, to see
How well these animals agree.
GOING TO MEET PAPA.
PAPA is coming home to tea,
He will be glad his girl to see;
So trot along, dear little miss,
And great him with a loving kiss.
One thing on earth is free from guile:-
It is the kiss of a sweet child.
SHE 's whispering to her mamma,
Telling of presents for papa
Which she has safely put away
For him upon his next birthday.
To trust your mother it is well,
And to her all your secrets tell.
LEARNING TO KNIT.
GRANDMA is teaching Kate to knit,
To shape a sock and make it fit,
To round the heel and point the toe,
Something that every girl should know.
All girls should learn to knit their socks,
Also to mend and make their frocks.
THE farmer at his spring-time toil:-
He's ploughing up the stubborn soil,
He smooths the land and scatters seed
To yield a crop for time of need.-
These truthful. words before you keep,-
"What'er you sow that you will reap."
THE HAPPY BIRD.
THOUGH it is cold and trees are bare,
This joyous bird is singing there;
On the chill air his music rings
And this is the sweet song he sings-
4"Let your heart be both light and gay
And December is as bright as May."
I- ~P~r'j~." -:~i~ :
THOUGH pigs are sometimes white as snow,
They into filthy brutes may grow.
And lovely children sometimes be-
Come stained with deep depravity.
If you would never see this done
Be careful evil thoughts to shun.
'TIs Christmas morn;-while she has slept
Down chimney Santa Claus has crept,
And filled her little sock with toys:-
He's always good to girls and boys
Who're kind and gentle in their play
And always mind what parents say.
WHEN dolly went out in the cold
She "got a tooth-ache," we've been told.
So from her play Miss Annie stops
To give her doll some "tooth-ache drops":-
This motto we should always heed,
Only the sick a doctor need."
THESE boys here are camping out;
'Tis plain to see what they're about;
They've built a fire and all agree
To have a rabbit fricassee.
In camp or household, this is true,
Too many cooks will spoil a stew.
IT sometimes seems a silly thing
To play cratch-cradle with a string,
Yet children better play at this
Than with noisy sport to do amiss.-
With something good your mind employ
If you a life-time would enjoy.
ALONE AND SAD.
THIS poor old man's alone and sad,
Once a good, happy home he had;-
He's lost his fortune, children, wife,
Here's none to cheer his lonely life.
Have pity for this poor old man
And cheer the sad whene'er you can.
BE GENTLE WITH THE ERRING.
"ANOTHER step I will not go,"
Says this old donkey here, and so
No shout of boy or bark of dog
Can coax or drive him o'er the log.-
Be gentle, boy-act kind your part,
Kindness will melt the hardest heart.
EARNING HER LIVING.
PAPA and mamma both are dead;-
Many the pleasures once she had;
But ever since they both have died
Thus for herself she can provide,
Because she's learned to knit and sew,
Something important for girls to know.
FUN IN A BASKET.
M .. _. ___-
N = -
WHAT funny things some children do!-
Here in the basket see these two.
They're playing sailing in a boat;
Over the waves they think the float.-
Children will always find some way
For joyous sport whene'er they play.
THE BIRDS AND THE HARE.
"How very happy birds must be,
Flitting about from tree to tree!"
"How very nice to be a hare,
Nibbling the clover everywhere!"
If we but knew another's cares,
Our lot we'd not exchange for theirs.
MISCHIEF IN THE PANTRY.
THE family all went away
And left the cats at home to stay.-
The closet door they did not close,
Hence all this mischief here arose.
When people leave things without care,
They may expect some trouble there.
THE FIGHTING BEASTS.
HERE is a bear and buffalo,
And this picture's made to show
How savage beasts on plain and hill
Each other fight and often kill.-
For human beings 'tis not right
To ever quarrel or to fight.
CI/JFR _, I--~----- .- ---~

As accident has happened here.
The cause of it does not appear:-
Though not to blame, this little one
Seems very sorry it's been done.-
To mend the fault she better try,
"O'er milk that's spilt don't ever cry."
LEARNING TO WORK.
LEARNING to smooth the garments white,
To fold them nice and place them right
And fix them all for future wear
Is what Miss Kate is doing there.-
How household duties should be done
Ought to be learned by every one.
VAIN MISS JANE.
Miss Jane is viewing her new hat,
We wonder what she thinks of that
New pink bow and light blue feather,
Do those shades blend well together?
And do you think this little queen
Can see herself as she is seen?
THIS dog was carried far away,
But there, they could not make him stay;
He grew homesick and broke his chain;
How glad he is he's home again!
When from our friends away we roam
There's always joy in coming home.
MIss Mary standing at the tub
Giving dolly a thorough scrub.
Trying to make her nice and sweet
Before she dresses for the street.
If health and happiness you'd glean
Remember always to keep clean.
MISCHIEF IN A BAND BOX.
A PROUD lady left her bonnet
Where the kittens pounced upon it;
They sniffed the feathers, tore the rose,
Broke the straw and crushed the bows.
Then from this tale let one and all
Remember "pride may have a fall."
THE SCHOOL GIRL.
WITH books and slate and bright bouquet
This girl to school is on her way.
The bouquet's for her teacher kind,
Who aids her to improve her mind.
This is most commonly the rule
The child that's good will like the school.
LOST IN THE SNOW.
LoST :-this poor dog amid the snow
Is lost; he knows not where to go,-
To save his master who 's fallen nigh
He '11 bring help by his pleading cry.
This wise good dog we may admire,
And to his faithfulness aspire.
NO ROSE WITHOUT A THORN.
MIss Nellie placing to her nose
A fresh and fragrant blushing rose.
It is a fact we often find
Those who love flowers are refined.-
Of this we would this maiden warn:
"There is no rose without a thorn."

A LITTLE crippled orphan boy
Once met kind friends-it was great joy
After all the pain he had endured
To have his lameness fully cured:-
He grew to be a learned man.-
Let's help the poor whene'er we can.
HASTENING TO SCHOOL.
THROUGH pathways green and very cool
Miss Daisy trips along to school;
She is in haste, for she would hate
To stop and play and be marked "late."
All children should learn well this rule
And never be late at their school.
THE DEAD BIRD.
THEY all felt sad when birdie died.-
Miss Lucy turned away and cried,
And little Fred he wondered why
So sweet a little bird should die.
Alas! dear child, he does not know
Death comes to all things here below.
THE ITALIAN CHILD.
IN Italy far, far away
Where breezes soft through vineyards play,
'Neath sunny skies and moonbeams mild
Was born this little wand'ring child.
Now she's compelled through streets to roam,
Yet sings of Home, Sweet Home, Sweet Home.
BE IN TIME AND TUNE.
" ONE-two-three-four, One-two-three-four,"-
Counting the music o'er and o'er;
She must study many a day
If e'er. she would correctly play.-
Here is the moral of this rhyme,
Working or playing be in time.
THE FLOWER GIRL.
"COME buy my little roses red
Sown and bloomed in sorrow's bed.-
Come listen to an orphan's cry!
My roses red, who '11 buy, who '11 buy.
If you would do a worthy deed
Then help poor orphans in their need.
SINGING AND SWINGING.
BACKWARDS and forwards, high and low,
Where neathh the branches breezes blow,
Here ev'ry day this sweet maid swings
And this the song she often sings:
"Be good and kind at work or play
And you '11 be happy every day."
THE ADOPTED SQUIRRELS.
WHEN these two squirrels were quite small
Their home was in an oak tree tall;-
Their loving mother died up there
And Pussy took them in her care.
They play with her and with her kit;
Her care for them they don't forget.
THE TRAINED DOG.
*1 A :'; ^ ^
" Bow-wow! bow-wow! "-" what now-what now "
This is the dog that's learned just how
To speak, when he's in want of food,
So loud he's always understood.-
To jump and speak, he learned it all
When he was very, very small.
LOOKING FOR HOME.

So far from home this maiden strayed,
She lost her way and was afraid;-
She's climbing up a maple tree,
Hoping her distant home to see.
When'er you do not know the way
You better ask than go astray.
