For ribbons and lace,
And gloves that are handsome and
"We have very fine mittens
For ladylike kittens,
And this is our bargain day."
APTAIN Fido, Terrier Skye
Wears an eyeglass in his eye,

Walking stick and new silk hat
Captain Fido Terrier Skye
Was a soldier, days gone '
Everybody knows him
You can see him every day,
Stiff and martial, stern and ./..
As he strolls across the
To his club, the "Bone and
INIPLE Simon met a pieman
Going to the fair;
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
Lt me taste your ware."
Says the pieman to Simple Simon,
"Show me first your penny,"' I
.Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
"Indeed I have not any,"
I MPLE Simon went a fishing
SFor to catch a whale ;
All the water he had got
Was in his mother's pail.
Simple Simon went to look
If plums grew on a thistle;
He pricked his fingers very much,
WXhich made poor Simon whistle.
He went for water in a sieve,
But soon it all ran through;
And now poor Simple Simon
Bids you all adieu.
fittypat and ^ippytoe.
.4LL day long they come and go-
Pittypat and Tippytoe;
Footprints up and down the hall,
l^ Playthings scattered on the floor,
Fingermarks along the wall,
Tell-tale smudges on the door-
By these presents you shall know
Pittypat and Tippytoe.
Hrow they riot at their play!
SAnd a dozen times a day
in they troop, demanding bread-
Only buttered bread will do,
And that butter must be spread
Inches thick with sugar, too!
And I never can say, "No,
,ittypat and Tippytoe!"
_--" Sometimes there are griefs to soothe,
Sometimes ruffled brows to smooth;
For (I much regret to say)
Tippytoe and Pittypat
Sometimes interrupt their play
With an internecine spat,
Fie, for shame, to quarrel so-
Pittypat and Tippytoel
Oh, the thousand worrying things
Every day recurrent brings!
Hands to scrub and hair to brush,
Search for playthings gone amiss,
Many a wee complaint to hush,
Many a little bump to kiss;
Life seems one vain fleeting show
To Pittypat and Tippytoel -
THE QUEEN OF HEARTS.
HE Queen of Hearts, she made some tarts,
All on a summer's day;
" The Knave of Hearts he stole those tarts,
And took them clean away.
TAFFY WAS A WELSHMAN.
TAFFY was a Welshman, Taffy was a thief;
Taffy came to my house and stole a piece of beef
I went to Taffy's house, Taffy was not at home;
Taffy came to my house and stole a marrow-bone,
I went to Taffy's house, Taffy was in bed,
I took the marrow-bone, and beat about his head.
THERE WAS AN OLD WOMAN.
There was an old woman lived under the hill,
And if she's not gone, she lives there still.
HE big and the little and middle-sized Bear,
They put the bear's grease thick on
They washed their faces-each of the

And the Panther came with the big
And they danced all night by the light
