SDIY Dolly, Polly
An elina Brown,
1 as a pretty
little bonnet
and a pretty
little gown;
A pretty little bonnet,
With a lovely
feather on it;
Oh, there's not another like it to be found in
all the town.

My dolly, Polly, is a precious little pet;
Her eyes are bright as jewels, and her hair uas
black as jet;
I hug her, and
I kiss her 1
And, oh, how I
should miss her
If she were taken from
me Oh how I should _
grieve and fret!

My little brother, Charley,
says my dolly
is "a muff,"
And he calls her other
horrid names, though
that is bad enough;
And though he's
very clever
I never, no, I never
Let him handle her or dandle her, for boys,
you know, are rough.

My dolly's always smiling; she was never
known to frown;
ii And she looks so very charming
in her
Sunday hat
and gown,
YYou really ought
to see h.er
S To get a good idea
Of the beauty of my dolly,
Polly Angelina Brown.

S' .iL' needs to have a bath
1'i In her little tub,
.' W here her pretty hands and feet
S I will gently rub;
Twist her hair upon her
.- So it won't get wet,
",.Then the towels and the
A soap,
And the sponge I'll get.

There now, Dolly, stand just so;
Very quiet keep;
Though the water in the tub
Is not very deep,
It might make you very ill,
Very pale and thin,
If by any chance, my dear,
You should tumble in. -.

1';here's my dolly ? Oh
dear me I!.
I told her not to stir ., *-.L
For oh, you know, all over, '"
Do not agree with her! i .'.
And now she is a dreadful
sight, ."
Not ft to hugr or kiss! .
Oh, Dolly dear, how could you serve
Me s i.ih a trick as this ?

I KNOW a little maid,
She's scarcely ten years old,
A busier little maid
This wide world does not hold.

She's up at early dawn,
And when her prayers -
are said, i
She tidies up her room *
And makes her little ,
bed. 4 -

Although she goes to '
school, JA"
And does her tasks '
right well,
She's time to do more
Than I have time to tell.

The dishes she will wash,
And sometimes sweep a floor,
And water all the plants
.\-bout the kitchen door.

Yet she is fuli of fun,
My busy little maid.
You ask her name? Well, 1Iha
Is what I have not said.

SKNOW a very 5P ...,
careless girl,
Her hair is always
out. of

In rags '
i and tatters are her clothes
And she's
a fright,
you may. ^,

Her skirts she catches
on a nail,
S And leaves
behind an
ugly trail;
P" Her sashes always
are untied,
SHer dresses always
gaping wide.

'Tis her delight to tear
and rend;
She does not like
to patch or mend
And 'tis no wonder
that she goes
So out at
eiibows and
at toes,

NJ --

I- 'F The cups and saucers
/ -,. she lets fall,
And cannot do
a thing at all
, Without
I confess,
Her reckless,
-^-^ i carelessness.

OH, BEN was full of ,1
monkey-tricks, <.a
As full as he r
could be, /
Now up, now down,
no circus clown
Was livelier
than he.
He'd run and race, and make grimace,
From morn till set of sun,
And play all sorts
,'' of jokes
-. on folks
:.' I} ,Who did
not like
". such fun
c.. i y -,; I' i' '#

O'er chairs and sofas .'
he would leap, ,
.ud do wn the ''
raili g:s slide,

S -i4 C Tie Amy's hair
fast to a chair,
S And in dark
I i ''-- closets hide.
S,'[ Popguns he fired,
till he was tired,

And everybody said
Such boys. :is Ben
