LITTLE DRUMMER.

I will tell you now about the lit-
tle Drummer. But you must in the
first place look at the picture of him,
asleep on his drum, and his dog sit-
ting up like a judge by his side.
The picture is at the beginning o

PARLEY’S STORY OF 6

Here the little Drummer lies,
With his head on his drum;
He has closed his sleepy eyes,

And his prattling mouth is dumb.

All the morning he has beat.
His drum, and marched about,
Till his busy little feet, |
Are quite tired out.
%

Now the grass is his bed,
And his pillow is a drum ;
But his weary little head, «
Finds it sweeter than a plumb.

THE LITTLE DRUMMER.

The dog sits watching by
Looking very wise and crank ;

But he keeps a careful eye
On his little master Frank.

If another dog should dare
To disturb his quiet dose,

| Tray would surely pull his hair,

And perhaps pull his nose.

For a faithful dog is Tray,
And he loves his little friend,
And when others are away,
He is present to defend.





g PARLEY’S STORY OF

One day this little child
Who on his drum reposes,
Along astream was wiled,
By the butterflies and roses.

The flashing brook was bright, — |

And like a mirror seemed,
And in its waters bright,
The mimic roses beamed.

Now his little hand he dipped,
To catch the roses.gay,

And wondered that they slipped
From his fingers all away.

THE LITTLE DRUMMER.

Then he struck the waters blue,
And laughed to see the bubbles ;

And the pleasant moments flew,

Without cares or troubles.

But delusive was his joy,
As the mock roses beam 5
For the thoughtless little boy
Fell deeply in the stream !

Like an arrow from the bow,

Tray sprang from the bank,

And swiftly plunged below,
To save little Frank!









10 * PARLEY’S STORY OF

A moment passed away,

And the ruffled waves subside ;
Then bravely rises Tray,

With his burthen on the tide!

Now he swims to the shore,
With the poor dripping boy,
And the danger all o’er,
Tray leaps about for joy.

For a faithful dog is Tray,
And he loves his little friend 5

And when others are away, ~
He is present to defend.



THE LITTLE DRUMMER. ll

Don’t you think Tray was an ex-
cellent dog? He was so indeed,
and little Frank was very kind to
him. The poor boy would have
been drowned, if Tray had not jump-
ed into the water and pulled him out.

I hope you like this story of the
little drummer and his dog; but as
itis a short story, E will tell you a
story about a lion. Over the leaf is
a picture of a lion. - Sce how bold
he looks. |

the man: the man expected instantly
to be torn in pieces; but it was not so.

The lion’s foot was wounded and
bloody. ‘The lion held up his foot
to the man, and moaned as if asking
his assistance. ‘The man took hold
of the lion’s foot, and found a large
thorn in it. It was the thorn which

had wounded the lion’s foot. The

man drew out the thorn; and the
lion finding his foot much easier,
seemed very good natured and pleas-
ant. He lay down by the man and
went to sleep.

THE LION. 15

The man lived in the woods a good
while, with the lion; and the lion
always treated the man kindly, and
brought food to him in his den. But
at length the man left the den, and
went back to the place he came from.

The man was soon discovered and
carried to his former master. His
master was very angry because he |
ran away. He ordered him to be
thrown into a place where there was
a great lion, just brought from the
woods. It was expected that the
lion would immediately kill the man.

16 PARLEY’S STORY.

But instead of killing him, the lion
fell down at the man’s feet like a
kitten; and the man discovered that
it was the same lion from whose foot
he had pulled out the thorn! _

Thus you see the lion remember- |
ed his friend, and showed kind feel-’
ings towards him. This was what
is called gratitude. I should not
like to have my little readers growl
and roar like a lion, but I hope they
will imitate his gratitude, and al-
ways show amiable feelings to those
who have been kind to them.
