“FAHIS did not make him look so well,—more lame
He seemed, indeed he looked a great deal thinner;

" He might be taken for a scrubby lamb,”
They said, “and killed and eaten for our dinner.”
Or like a pig he seemed, with curly tail,
Or made one think of an heraldic lion
Upon the shield of some tall knight in mail,

Who treads the stage he shortly means to die on,

























A few days after this,—and oh! it shows

_ How fickle can be even a kind Missis,—
She grew quite tired of him, as I suppose,
And sent the dear away with many kisses.
His new home in the country he admired,
And was as happy there as may be,

For when of chasing poultry he was tired,

He ate the fiddle-strings and bit the baby,

Ce day in winter, frosty and severe,
Upon the icy Highgate pond he trotted:

The wind blew sharply, and the air was clear,

And every pond was with its skaters dotted;

And though there was a board marked “ DancErovs,”
Puffy went running iaster, never heeding,

And so fell in,—which shows to all of us

What harm may come if we neglect our reading,







HAT he was drowned my readers must not think,
For he was dragged with sticks out of his danger
By faithful friends, who, standing on the brink,
Saw his sad fall, as well as many a stranger.
Half-drowned the poor small thing was, sad to tell,—
They quickly got some brandy, and he drank it.





HEY took him home, and warmed and rubbed him well,
And wrapped him carefully in softest blanket.
So he got well ;—his equal can’t be found,
No pen can e’er describe, no pencil draw him;
And at this moment he is safe and sound,
At least, he was all right when last I saw him.
