MAX AND MAURICE.PREFACE.AH, how oft we read or hear ofBoys we almost stand in fear of!For example, take these storiesOf two youths, named Max and Maurice,Who, instead of early turningTheir young minds to useful learning,Often leered with horrid featuresAt their lessons and their teachers.Look now at the empty head: heIs for mischief always ready.Teasing creatures, climbing fences,Stealing apples, pears, and quinces,Is, of course, a deal more pleasant,And far easier for the present,


4 MAX AND MAURICE.Than to sit in schools or churches,Fixed like roosters on their perches.But 0 dear, 0 dear, 0 deary,When the end comes sad and dreary !'Tis a dreadful thing to tellThat on Max and Maurice fellAll they did this book rehearses,Both in pictures and in verses.TRICK FIRST.To most people who have leisureRaising poultry gives great pleasure:First, because the eggs they lay usFor the care we take repay us;Secondly, that now and thenWe can dine on roasted hen;Thirdly, of the hen's and goose'sFeathers men make various uses.Some folks like to rest their headsIn the night on feather beds.One of these was Widow Tibbets,Whom the cut you see exhibits.


MAX AND MAURICE.Hens were hers in number three,And a cock of majesty.Max and Maurice took a view;Fell to thinking what to do.One, two, three as soon as said,They have sliced a loaf of bread,Cut each piece again in four,Each a finger thick, no more.These to two cross-threads they tie,Like a letter X they lieIn the widow's yard, with careStretched by those two rascals there.Loom_, ii P- H


6 MAX AND MAURICE.Scarce the cock had seen the sight,When he up and crew with might:Cock-a-doodle-doodle-doo; -Tack, tack, tack, the trio flew.Cock and hens, like fowls unfed,Gobbled each a piece of bread;


MAX AND MAURICE.But they found, on taking thought,Each of them was badly caught.Every way they pull and twitch,This strange cat's-cradle to unhitch;


8 MAX AND MAURICE.Up into the air they fly,Jiminee, O Jimini!On a tree behold them dangling,In the agony of strangling IAnd their necks grow long and longer,And their groans grow strong and stronger.


MAX AND MAURICE. 9-Q-Each lays quickly one egg more,Then they cross to th' other shore.Widow Tibbets in her chamber,By these death-cries waked from slumber,


I0 MAX AND MAURICE.Rushes out with bodeful thought:Heavens! what sight her vision caught!From her eyes the tears are streaming:" Oh, my cares, my toil, my dreaming IAh, life's fairest hope," says she," Hangs upon that apple-tree."


MAX AND MAURICE.- /.Heart-sick (you may well suppose),For the carving-knife she goes;Cuts the bodies from the bough,Hanging cold and lifeless now;And in silence, bathed in tears,Through her house-door disappears..,-- 'l br\ .JJThis was the bad boys' first trick,But the second follows quick.


12 MAX AND MAURICE.TRICK SECOND.WHEN the worthy Widow Tibbets(Whom the cut below exhibits)Had recovered, on the morrow,From the dreadful shock of sorrow,She (as soon as grief would let herThink) began to think 'twere betterJust to take the dead, the dear ones(Who in life were walking here once),And in a still noonday hourThem, well roasted, to devour.True, it did seem almost wicked,When they lay so bare and naked,Picked, and singed before the blaze, -They that once in happier days,In the yard or garden ground,All day long went scratching round.Ah Frau Tibbets wept anew,And poor Spitz was with her, too.! _" l I 0ii1'wy^^m |J


MAX AND MAURICE. 13Max and Maurice smelt the savor."Climb the roof!" cried each young shaver.Through the chimney now, with pleasure,They behold the tempting treasure,Headless, in the pan there, lying,Hissing, browning, steaming, frying.\) ,rK1_ l :\


14 MAX AND MAURICE.At that moment down the cellar(Dreaming not what soon befell her)Widow Tibbets went for sourKrout, which she would oft devourWith exceeding great desire(Warmed a little at the fire).Up there on the roof, meanwhile,They are doing things in style.Max already with forethoughtA long fishing-line has brought.


MAX AND MAURICE. 15Schnupdiwup there goes, 0 Jeminy !One hen dangling up the chimney.


16 MAX AND MAURICE.Schnupdiwup a second bird !Schnupdiwup up comes the third !Presto number four they haul!Schnupdiwup! we have them all!-Spitz looks on, we must allow,But he barks: Row-wow Row-wow/But the rogues are down instanterFrom the roof, and off they canter. -Ha! I guess there'll be a humming;Here's the Widow Tibbets coming !Rooted stood she to the spot,When the pan her vision caught.


MAX AND MAURICE. 17Gone was every blessed bird !"Horrid Spitz !" was her first word.-L"0 you Spitz, you monster, you !Let me beat him black and blue "


MAX AND MAURICE.And the heavy ladle, thwack !Comes down on poor Spitz's back !Loud he yells with agony,For he feels his conscience free.And of that great hen-feast nowEach has but a leg to showThis was now the second trick,But the third will follow quick.


MAX AND MAURICE. 19TRICK THIRD.THROUGH the town and country roundWas one Mr. Buck renowned.Sunday coats, and week-day sack-coats,Bob-tails, swallow-tails, and frock coats,Gaiters, breeches, hunting-jackets;Waistcoats, with commodious pockets, -And other things, too long to mention,Claimed Mr. Tailor Buck's attention.Or, if any thing wanted doingIn the way of darning, sewing,Piecing, patching,- if a buttonNeeded to be fixed or put on, -Any thing of any kind,Anywhere, before, behind, -Master Buck could do the same,For it was his life's great aim.Therefore all the populationHeld him high in estimation.Max and Maurice tried to inventWays to plague this worthy gent.


20 MAX AND MAURICE.Right before the Sartor's dwellingRan a swift stream, roaring, swelling._k--_- 4-This swift stream a bridge did span,And the road across it ran.iMax and Maurice (naught could awe them!)Took a saw, when no one saw them:Ritze-ratze! riddle-diddle !Sawed a gap across the middle.


MAX AND MAURICE. 21When this feat was finished well,Suddenly was heard a yell:>$11 < i/"Hallo, there Come out, you buck !Tailor, Tailor, muck muck muck '"Buck could bear all sorts of jeering,Jibes and jokes in silence hearing;But this insult roused such anger,Nature couldn't stand it longer.C tWild with fury, up he started,With his yard-stick out he darted;For once more that frightful jeer,"Muck muck muck " rang loud and clear.


22 MAX AND MAURICE.On the bridge one leap he makes;Crash! beneath his weight it breaks.Once more rings the cry, "Muck! muck!"In, headforemost, plumps poor Buck


MAX AND MAURICE. 23While the scared boys were skedaddling,Down the brook two geese came paddling.110On the legs of these two geese,With a death-clutch, Buck did seize;And, with both geese well in hand,Flutters out upon dry land.


24 MAX AND MAURICE.For the rest he did not findThings exactly to his mind.Soon it proved poor Buck had brought aDreadful belly-ache from the water.


MAX AND MAURICE. 25S\ \\Noble Mrs. Buck She risesFully equal to the crisis;With a hot flat-iron, sheDraws the cold out famously.Soon 'twas in the mouths of men,All through town: "Buck's up again "This was the bad boys' third trick,But the fourth will follow quick.


26 MAX AND MAURICE.TRICK FOURTH.AN old saw runs somewhat so:Man must learn while here below. -Not alone the A, B, C,Raises man in dignity;Not alone in reading, writing,Reason finds a work inviting;Not alone to solve the doubleRule of Three shall man take trouble;But must hear with pleasure SagesTeach the wisdom of the ages.Of this wisdom an exampleTo the world was Master Limpel.For this cause, to Max and MauriceThis man was the chief of horrors;For a boy who loves bad tricksWisdom's friendship never seeks.


MAX AND MAURICE. 27With the clerical professionSmoking always was a passion;And this habit without question,While it helps promote digestion,Is a comfort no one canWell begrudge a good old man,When the day's vexations close,.And he sits to seek repose. -Max and Maurice, flinty-hearted,On another trick have started;Thinking how they may attack aPoor old man through his tobacco.Once, when Sunday morning breaking,Pious hearts to gladness waking,Poured its light where, in the temple,At his organ sate Herr Limpel,:2I ,' I IV- \/ \^\. 3 ....KM~~a aC)00


28 MAX AND MAURICE.These bad boys, for mischief ready,Stole into the good man's study,Where his darling meerschaum stands.This, Max holds in both his hands;While young Maurice (scapegrace born !)Climbs, and gets the powderhorn,And with speed the wicked soulPours the powder in the bowl.Hush, and quick! now, right about!For already church is out.Limpel closes the church-door,Glad to seek his home once more;


MAX AND MAURICE. 29All his service well got through,Takes his keys, and music too,And his way, delighted, wendsHomeward to his silent friends.Full of gratitude he thereLights his pipe, and takes his chair.(-^<ifpj2


30 MAX AND MAURICE.NNO"Ah " he says, "no joy is foundLike contentment on earth's round "Fizz! whizz! bum! The pipe is burst,Almost shattered into dust.Coffee-pot and water-jug,Snuff-box, ink-stand, tumbler, mug,Table, stove, and easy-chair,All are flying through the airIn a lightning-powder-flash,With a most tremendous crash.


MAX AND MAURICE. 31When the smoke-cloud lifts and clears,L impel on his back appears;God be praised still breathing there,Only somewhat worse for wear.Nose, hands, eyebrows (once like yours),Now are black as any Moor's;Burned the last thin spear of hair,And his pate is wholly bare.


32 MAX AND MAURICE.Who shall now the children guide,Lead their steps to wisdom's side?Who shall now for Master LampelLead the service in the temple?Now that his old pipe is out,Shattered, smashed, gone up the spout?- -XTime will heal the rest once more,But the pipe's best days are o'er.This was the bad boys' fourth trick,But the fifth will follow quick.


MAX AND MAURICE. 33TRICK FIFTH.IF, in village or in town,You've an uncle settled down,Always treat him courteously;Uncle will be pleased thereby.In the morning: "'Morning to you !Any errand I can do you?"Fetch whatever he may need, -Pipe to smoke, and news to read;Or shouldvsome confounded thingPrick his back, or bite, or sting,Nephew then will be near by,Ready to his help to fly;Or a pinch of snuff, maybe,Sets him sneezing violently :"Prosit! uncle! good health to you!God be praised! much good may't do you!"Or he comes home late, perchance:Pull his boots off then at once,Fetch his slippers and his cap,And warm gown his limbs to wrap.Be your constant care, good boy,What shall give your uncle joy.Max and Maurice (need I mention?)Had not any such intention.See now how they tried their wits -These bad boys on Uncle Fritz.


34 MAX AND MAURICE.What kind of a bird a May-Bug was, they knew, I dare say;In the trees they may be found,Flying, crawling, wriggling round.Max and Maurice, great pains taking,From a tree these bugs are shaking.


MAX AND MAURICE. 35In their cornucopiae papers,They collect these pinching creepers.Soon they are depositedIn the foot of uncle's bed


36 MAX AND MAURICE.With his peaked nightcap on,Uncle Fritz to bed has gone;Tucks the clothes in, shuts his eyes,And in sweetest slumber lies.\'-,. " ~ ~ ~ ~ Nm t. : " o


MAX AND MAURICE. 37Kritze Kratze come the TartarsSingle file from their night quarters.And the captain boldly goesStraight at Uncle Fritzy's nose.


38 MAX AND MAURICE." Baugh !" he cries: "what have we here?"Seizing that grim grenadier.Uncle, wild with fright, upspringeth,And the bedclothes from him flingeth.


MAX AND MAURICE. 39" Awtsch !" he seizes two more scape-Graces from his shin and nape.Crawling, flying, to and fro,Round the buzzing rascals go.


40 MAX AND MAURICE.Wild with fury, Uncle FritzStamps and slashes them to bits.AV .0 be joyful! all gone byIs the May bug's deviltry.


MAX AND MAURICE. 41NILUncle Fritz his eyes can closeOnce again in sweet repose.This was the bad boys' fifth trick,But the sixth will follow quick.TRICK SIXTH.EASTER days have come again,When the pious baker menBake all sorts of sugar things,Plum-cakes, ginger-cakes, and rings.Max and Maurice feel an acheIn their sweet-tooth for some cake.


42 MAX AND MAURICE.But the Baker thoughtfullyLocks his shop, and takes the key./lsi ;Who would steal, then, t is must do:Wriggle down the chimney-flue.


MAX AND MAURICE. 43Ratsch There come the boys, my Jiminy !Black as ravens, down the chimney.Puff! into a chest they drop,Full of flour up to the top.


44 MAX AND MAURICE.I4-Out they crawl from under coverJust as white as chalk all over.But the cracknels, precious treasure,On a shelf they spy with pleasure.


MAX AND MAURICE. 45Knacks! The chair breaks! down they go-Schwapp into a trough of dough


46 MAX AND MAURICE.All enveloped now in dough,See them, monuments of woe.In the Baker comes, and snickersWhen he sees the sugar-lickers.


MAX AND MAURICE. 47_kt"I,One, two, three the brats, behold!Into two good brots are rolled.There's the oven, all red-hot,-Shove 'em in as quick as thought.


48 MAX AND MAURICE.Ruff out with 'em from the heat,They are brown and good to eat.Now you think they've .paid the debt!No, my friend, they're living yet.


MAX AND MAURICE. 49Knusper Knasper like two miceThrough their roofs they gnaw in a trice;And the Baker cries, "You bet!There's the rascals living yet! "This was the bad boys' sixth trick,But the last will follow quick.


50 MAX AND MAURICE.LAST TRICK.MAX and Maurice! I grow sick,When I think on your last trick.Why must these two scalawagsCut those gashes in the bags?See the farmer on his backCarries corn off in a sack.


MAX AND MAURICE. 51Scarce has he begun to travel,When the corn runs out like gravel.// Imo// ^ ^-'"0- I '"All at once he stops and cries:"Darn it! I see where it lies "


52 MAX AND MAURICEHa! with what delighted eyesMax and Maurice he espies.> ii *Rabs! he opens wide his sack,Shoves the rogues in Hukepack I


MAX AND MAURICE. 53-^-i -It grows warm with Max and Maurice,For to mill the farmer hurries." Master Miller Hallo, man IGrind me that as quick as you can I "


54 MAX AND MAURICE."In with 'em !" Each wretched flopperHeadlong goes into the hopper.As the farmer turns his back, heHears the mill o " creak! cracky "Hears the mill go " creaky!i cracky

56 MAX AND MAURICE.CONCLUSION.IN the village not a word,Not a sign, of grief, was heard.Widow Tibbets, speaking low,Said, "I thought it would be so! ""None but self," cried Buck, "to blame !Mischief is not life's true aim !"Then said gravely Teacher Lampel,"There again is an example !""To be sure! bad thing f&r youth,"Said the Baker, "a sweet tooth "Even Uncle says, " Good folks!See what comes of stupid jokes!"But the honest farmer: " Guy !What concern is that to I?"Through the place in short there wentOne wide murmur of content:"God be praised the town is freeFrom this great rascality I"Cambridge: Press of John Wilson and Son.
