SPECKLE AND HER BABIES.
JUST listen to Speckle, she cackles so loud
You can hear her all over the farm:
Of her brood of young chicks she's exceedingly proud,
While she carefully guards them from harm.

These plump little chickies that wander about,
Many days dwelt in pretty white eggs,
Till cracking and breaking the shells they popped out,
And walked off on their own little legs.

" Pray, Madam, how many young chicks have you got ?"
"Please to count; there are eight, you will see.
Nowhere else can you find such a nice looking lot;
They are surely a credit to me!"

THE YOUNG D-ONKEY.
I SCAMP\PER over the pasture, and amuse myself all
day,
For I've nothing at all to think of, as yet, but sport and
play;
But my mother often tells me, and I s'pose that she
must know,
That a time is quickly coming when it will not be so;
\When I shall wear a bridle, and have to pull a cart,
And of this great world's labor, perform
my little part.

WAE'RE three happy little Rabbits, and we live in this nice hutch:
They feed us leaves of cabbage, and we like them very much.


"G OOSEY Goosey Gander, whither shall we wander?"
Let us go a-paddling in the water yonder."

THE LITTLE COUNTERS.

E LEVEN little piggies, with their mamma, here you
see,
A very thriving family, I'm sure you will agree.
Each has a curly tail, and a cunning little snout,
Which he keeps in constant service as he pokes and
roots about.

I fear, though, if you saw them when their trough's been
filled with food,
You'd be likely to consider their behavior rather rude;
For they've not good table manners, and though it sounds
unkind,
I'm forced to say that piggies can't
be called at all refined.

T WO little Guinea Pigs, nice little pets!

They haven't got tails, but neither one frets;


They are happy as long as they've plenty to eat,


And are able to keep themselves tidy and neat.

STHE TWO CHICKENS: 'A SAD TALE.
: T WO chickens lived
together long
In peace and
B happiness;
.But once they to
disputing fell;
S t Which wore the
finer dress ? .

The one cried out, Like ebony
And velvet is my breast!"
The other said, My coat is white,
And coral is my crest!"

Then all at once, with beak and spur,
Both 'gan to scratch and bite;
The feathers flew like thistledown,
So bitter was the fight.


For very life and death
they fought;
,-It was no
chickens' play;
k .Till one, oh, horror!
knocked his mate
/Clean down the
"" cellar way







The victor heard a
fearful sound,
A fearful
sight he I n hd
saw, a the
For down the
stairs poor
Whitey fell '
Right into
Kitty's maw!

His brother's feathers stood on end,
His anger turned to fear;
He cried aloud in frightened tones,
"What have I done? Oh, dear!

"Come back, come back, dear brother mine;"
He called with might and main;
I'll always be both kind and good,
And never fight again!"

But all in vain;
his mate to him
Forever more
was lost.
Don't quarrel, then,
for if you do
You'll have to
pay the cost.
