4 A B C RHYMES.DRAGOONS are heavy troops,' you know ;In the deserts DROMEDARIESgo.A DATE-TREE in t le DISTANCE stands.Men play at DOMINO ii many.:lands.Among the icebergs the ES-QU1MAUX thrive,E And ELKS before their sledgesdrive; C .They live on reindeer's fleshand milk,,Whose skin makes dresseswarm as silk.The Sulian wears a FEZ ofFredUpon his royal Turkish head;He makes a FEAST of jolly,.,treat ,To FISH, and FOWL, andFRUIT so sweet.

6A B C RHYMES.The gay GONDOLIER hisGONDOLA pliesGUnder the soft Italian skies.The GENERAL leads the armyto fight;The long-necked GIRAFFE isa beautiful sight.Strong as a' HERCULES, aboasting fellow wouldy Lift both house and scaffold, if -She only could;The mighty HIPPOPOTAMUSin rivers loves to play;The HADDOCK is a fish inmany a sea and bay.The savage, red INDIAN, eagerfor strife,I Threatens the INVALID SOL-DIER'S life.Here's an IBIS, the sacredEgyptian bird;And a musical INSTRUMENTfrequently heard.

A B C RHYMES.The JUNK, sailing with windfresh and fair,Will reach far JAPAN beforeyou're aware.A JAGER the Germans ahuntsman call,Who shoots down the JA-GUAR with powder andball.KAKADU is the German forbright Cockatoo;K In Australian wilds lives thewild KANGAROO;KIOSK is a building throughwhich one can see;The African .KABYL, a wildman is he.The LAUREL the LANCE-BEARER often deserves;Oft carries the LANTERN theLACKEY who serves;Off in the distance crouches aLION,Who'd eat them both up, asquick as say "Zion."4

10 A B C RHYMES.0 ho! little MAN, though you'rejolly and good,M You, like this MEASURE, aremade but of wood;You can not eat MELONS, andtry but your skill,You make as much noise as thewind in a MILL.Five and four make NINE allthe world over,Says the little NEGRO BOY,who lives in clover;He dances around on his heel', and toe,And would rather crack a NUT,than work with his hoe.The ORANG OUTANG ananimal clumsy and big,O Always takes to dancing whenthe ORGAN plays a jig.The OLIVE is a tasty fruit, juicyand green;You can't take an OMNIBUS;to visit the Queen.: " "..

ABC RHYMES.The PEACOCK is prouderthan many a girl,P Wearing as ornament a neck-lace of PEARL.The POSTILLION, drivingwith all his might,Is very much afraid as thePANTHER comes in sight.Four voices (or instruments)make a QUARTETTE;Q When the singers are good andthe music well set,They can give unto men thepurest of joys;But if they are bad, then it'snothing but noise.Hans, the RECRUIT, wears asoldier's hat,No longer does he fear thesqueaking of a RAT.Little ROBIN RED-BREASTsings at summer's closeA song of lament at the fidingof the ROSE.
