A LITTLE TAIL.
"Gobble, gobble, gobble, hiss, hiss, hiss,
Why whatever in the world is this ? "
Bow-wow, bow-wow, bow-wow," hear it say.
You silly old geese, don't come this way."
Gobble, gobble, gobble, we know now
S* .. It is a little dog says "Bow-wow."
-J ...'. -.. And then they pull his tail, as you see,
Never after this pup rude will be.
TIT FOR TAT.
Jip had his muzzle off one day,
And saw a cat across the way.
"A cat is but a thing of fur,"
He said, I soon can settle her."
Next day, Jip, with his muzzle on,
Lay sleeping calmly in the sun,
When pussy chanced to pass that way,
And she remembered yesterday.
And now there is another chase-
The hunted takes the hunter's place-
And Jip will wish before 'tis done,
That he had left that cat alone.

A LITTLE RED INDIAN.
This is about an Indian brave,
Oh, bonny and brave was he, oh!
He lived in the West, where the sun goes to rest,
Far over the broad blue sea, oh !
He'd perfect skill, was sure to kill,
With his long bow and his arrow;
He treated all game in a manner the same,
From buffaloes to a sparrow.
Time went along, so runs my song,
And new things came to pass, oh!
He was always in front, in the Redskins' hunt,
A cute little lad with a lasso !
He grew to a man-all boys can
Who try their hardest
to do so-
He's a wife and a cow,
and a big bow-wow,
And bold baby
C- braves a few, oh
