(Drest or Undrest.

Wnlx children are naughty, and will not be drest,

Pray what do you think is the way? Why, often I really believe it is best

To keep them in night-clothes all day!

But then they can have no good breakfast to eat,

Nor walk with their mother and aunt;

At dinner they'll have neither pudding nor meat,
Nor any thing else that they want.

Then who would be naughty and sit all the day

In night-clothes unfit to be seen!

And pray who would lose all their pudding and play

For not being drest neat and clean?

The good Scholar.

JOSEPH VEST had been told,
That if, when he grew old, He had not learnt rightly to spell,
Though his writing were good,
'Twould not be understood,
And Joe said, "I will learn my task well."

And he made it a rule To be silent in school,
And, what do you think came to pass?
Why, he learnt it so fast, That from being the last,
He soon was the first in his class.

The giddy Girl.

Mr ss HELEN was alwaystoo giddyto heed
What her mother had told her to shun; For frequentlyoverthe street, in full siped,
Shewould cross wherethe carriages run.

And dut she would go, to a 'ery deep well,
To look at the water below;
How naughty to run to a da'ngeroVs well,
Whee her mother forbade her to go!

One morning, intending to take but one
Her foot slipped away from the ground; Unhappy misfortune! the water was deep,
And giddy Miss Helen was drown'd.


Frnces and Ikenry,

SISTER 'Vranees is sad,
B1-cause Henry is ill; #d she lets the dear ad
Do whatever he Ri.

Leftl her own litt chair,
And got uip a rnio"tC,
When thc h-'- 'h1iw(Tc1aC

f Now, from hs wectan tell,
He "rill vcr piore tease her

He w~l study? please her.

At nighwe Pi'llip went to bed, He kiss'd nxazma,'and whisp'rin 'said, "My dear mamma, I never will Make any noise when you are ill.

The Pairing.

0 DEAR! what a beautiful Doll
My sister has bought at the fair; She says, I must call it Miss Poll,"
And make it a bonnet to wear.

0, pretty new Doll! it looks fine!
Its cheeks are all cover'd with red; But, pray will it always be mine ?
And, pray, may I take it to bed ?

How kind was my sister to buy
This Dolly with hair that will curl! Perhaps, if you want to know why,
She'll tell you, I've been a good girl

Go, naughty Tray !
By barking thus, You'll drive away
My pretty Puss.



The dizzy Girl.

,As Fr was playing, and turning around.
Her head grew so giddy, she fell to the ground;
Twas well that she was not much hurt; But 0, wha a pity! hter frock was so s That had you betheld tLhe unfortunjite chld,
You had seen ... cved *ith dirt.

er mother w r said, Do not cry
Anil Mary shall o make you quite dry,
If you'll promis o roid no more."
41 What, not in the p arlotnI" the little girl said. No, not in the parlour; for lately I read
Of a girl who was hurt with the door.

"She was playing and turning, until her poor head Fell against the hard door, and it very much bled,
And I heard Dr. Camomile tell,
That he put on a plaster, and cover'd it up, Then gave her some tea, that was bitter, to sup,
Or perhaps it had never been well."


Naughty Sam.

"toM and Charles once took a walk,
To see a pretty lamb;
And as they went began to talk
Of little naughty $am.,

Who beat his youngest brother, Bill,
And threw him in the dirt;
And when his poor mamma was ill
He teas'd her for t squirt.

And"I," said Tom, "wont play withSam,
Although he has a top;"
But here the pretty little lamb
To talking put a stop.


The new Dolls.

Miss JENNY and Polly Had each a new Dolly,
With rosy-red cheeks and blue eyes
'Drest in ribbons and gauze': And they quarrelPd because The dolls were not both of a size!

0 silly Jenny!
To be such ai ninny!
To quarrel, and make such a noise I
For that very same day Their mamma sent way
The dolls with red cheeks and blue eles.



Come when you are called.

W HERE'S Susan, and Kitty, and Jfne?
Where's Billy, and Sammy, and Jack? 0! there they are, down in .e lane,
Go, Betty, and bring them all back.

But Billy is rude and wont come,
And Sammy is running too fast;
Come, dear little children, come horne,
And Billy is coming at hst.

I'm glad he remembers what's right,
For though he likes sliding on icv He should not be long out of sight,
Artd never want sending for twice.



GOOD little boys should never say
"I will," and Give me these;" 0, no! that never is the way,
But, "Mother, if you please.

And if you please," to sister Ann,
Good boys to say are ready;
And Yes, Sir," to a gentleman,
And Yes, Ma'am," to a lady.


Playful Pompey.

ComE hither, little dog, to play, And do not go so far away,
But stand and beg for food; And if your tail I chance to touch, You must not snarl so very much,'
Pray, Pompey, be not rude.

The dog can eat, and drink, and slcp, Ana help to fetch the cows and sheep:
0, see how Pompey begs!
Hark! hark! he says, bowwow! bow wow! But run away. good Pompey, now,
You'll tire your little legs.


7y3t ide Roy..

* zT utp, little boy you're sleeing too long, Your brother is drest, he is singing a song,

And Tom ustbewaken, 0 fie!

Come, open the curtains, and Jet in the light, For children should only be sleepy at night,

When stars may be seen in the sky.

. .........



Do you see the old beggar who stands at the door ? Do not send him away,--we must pity the poor; Oh !see how he shivers!-he's hungry and cold! For people can't work when they grow very old Go, set near the fire a table and seat; And Betty shall bring him some bread and some

I hope my dear children will always be kind Whenever they meet with the aged or- blind.
