Introduction.








,Jj HERE is a fascination in the combination of jing-
,L ling verse and bright pictures that always appeals
> strongly to children. The ancient "Mother Goose
b Book" had these qualities, and for nearly two centuries
the cadences of its rhymes have lingered in the memories
of men and women who learned them in childhood.
The author and illustrator of "Father Goose" have
had no intent to imitate or parody the famous verse and
pictures of "Mother Goose." They own to having
followed, in modem fashion, the plan of the book that
pleased children ages ago--and still pleases them. These
are newer jingles and pictures for children of to-day, and
intended solely to supplement the nursery rhymes of our
ancestors.

WHY?

Why does the doggie bark,papa
Why does the doggie barkl
The reason why,ifyou must know,
Is that the little dog carnt crow,
And so he has to bark.

Why does the rooster crow, papa.
Why does the rooster crow?
The reason why I'll
tell toyou;
Because the rooster
cannot mew.
And so he has to crow.

Why does the ktten mew,papa,
Why does the litten mew?
The reason why
Iha forced to say,
Is that the 14tten,
Can not bray,
And so she has to mew.

Why does the donkey bray, papa.
XWhy does the donkey bray,
The reason for
the donkeyS bray
Is that the beast
was born that way,
And sohe has to bray.

To wal JimJones was not contented,
And so an air-ship he invented;


He sailed away P
One summer day,
And people say
Hewont return home very soon,
ForJimJones sailed up to the moon.






Now, once Iowned
a funny man,
A clock-workwas
inside him;
You'd be surprised
how fast he ran
When I was there
beside him.


He was the pride
ofall the boys
Who lived within
our town;
But when this man
ran up a hill Ji
He always
would run down!

There was a Goose in Sracuse
And 1ull of fim washe;
He met a Clown and bought

And thought a Clown he'd be.









But for his okes

Had verylittle use:
And when the Clown
S danced up and down
Shey thought he was
a Goose!

SHave you seen little Sally
Dance the Ostrich Dance?
The dainty way she does it
Will surely you entrance-.
With the left' foot here,
And the right foot there,
And the ostrich feathers waving
In her golden hair:














She's surely very charming--
You'll see it at a. glance--
When little Sally dances
In the Ostrich dance.

Who stepped upon my toes:

And so Ipulled his nose.

Here is Paddy's billy goat, and
Lool ng cross, I grieve to tell.
With bowed head and eye that flashes
Quickly at poor Pat he dashes.
Now there's nothing more to tell-
Both have fallen in the well.

It sings a song that's quite absurd.
It sings a song that is n't long,

Now isn't that song quite absurd,
That's sung by the foolish Coogie Bird?

A' Sailing oer the sea;
With flag apeakshe'll ail to eelK
Her Country's enemy
And win a name of glorious fame
Ere she

Thought she'd lik to be a Quaker;
On her head she put a shaker
Thinlkng that the shaker 'd make her.

Pitch and catch-- the batter's outi
Laugh and run and slide and shoutt-
A very merry game is that,
And they call it
