TOPSY.


There was a little nigger girl-
With face as black as coal.
And many a little woolly curl
She grew upon her poll.



Her teeth were white
as driven snow,
Her eyes were liquid drops, see ?
In fair Kentucky did she "grow"-
Her Christian name was Topsy.

THE DISASTER.


But that poor little figure, that coal
black nigger
If a whale 'twas never could tell,
For oh 'ere he saw it,
Or could to land draw it,
^ Splash into the
water he fell.
In a terrible fright
at his horrible plight,


_ __~__~__ ~~___~_=































His sister cried "Jim you'll be drowned,"
But she and small Tom tugged,
Together they Jim lugged
And brought him once
more on to ground.

A black boy,

His mother's joy,


Went out one day

To shout and play.


A goose he saw,

And goslings four,


Who try to chase

Him from the place,

And in a tree,

In haste climbed he.

F He cried oh, oh,

Don't bite my toe !"

.The goose said "feet

Aren't good ro eat,

But you can stay

Up there all day,

We don't like boys

Who make a noise."

Said darkie no,

I won't stay so."


He broke a thick

And splendid stick


And down he came,--

-'Twas quite a game


To see' them run

Was such good fun!

SWEET ORANGES.


" Come buy my oranges, large and sweet,
I've roamed all day up and down the street,
Come try, little missile,
just taste and try,
If you taste I am sure
you at once will buy."


JACK AND SAMBO.
Jacko steals poor Sambo's apple.
Jacko is a naughty thief!-
Jacko is delighted, very !
Jacko's happiness is brief.


Sambo's mother walking by
Comes to little
Sam's relief,
Sambo has his apple back-
Jacko's joy is
turned to grief.

THE LITTLE TEACHER.

If you're in the land of small black-a-
moors,
You'll find that they mostly live out of
doors,
They tumble about on
the* ground all day,
And very few lessons
they care to say.
But here is the good little Topsy, look,
S She's teaching her dolly out of a book;
We can't tell quite what the lesson may be,
Perhaps it's the black-a-moors' "A, B, C."
