CHATTERING JACK.







NE morning Jack’s Mother sat reading her book
But whenever she tried on its pages to look,
Clack, clack, clack! went troublesome Jack,

And she. was obliged to put the book back.

The nest, made of sticks, was placed high on a tree,
And in it were chattering Magpics three ;

Tho’ dizzy with flying and breathless with fright,
Poor Jack had not learned to be silent quite.

“Clack, clack, clack!” faintly sobb’d little Jack,
‘* Pray—pray—Mrs. Magpie—take—me back !”

“Hold your tongue!” said the Magpie, “and don’t

So Jack learn’d to eat beetles and

And caterpillars with soft green legs ;

For he had a sharp peck from the Mag-
pie’s beak,

If he did not swallow, or tried to speak.

The young Magpies were fledged and
almost full grown,

And Jack often sat in the nest alone ;

And oh! how he longed for his Mother’s

But he longed in silence, and did not

But now he was silent and still as a mouse ;
It was pleasure enough thro’ the curtains to peep,
And look at dear Baby while fast asleep.

SITTUMS AND FIDO MAKING IT IP.

THE FAITHLESS PARROT.

By CHARLES H. BENNETT.

THERE once lived happily together, in a fine house, a tortoise-
shell Cat and a pretty white Dog: the Cat’s name was Tittums ;
the Dog's, Fido. In course of time the pretty Dog fell in love
with the Cat, and only waited for a good chance to disclose
his . affections. This came one day, when Tittums had put
her paws on the fender, dropped her head a little on one
side, half closed her eyes, and seemed thinking of nothing at
all. ‘Then Fido, who lay stretched at full length upon the
hearth-rug, looked steadfastly at her, and heaving a gentle
whine, said,—

“Oh, ‘littums, I’ve fallen in love!”

FIDO COURTING TITTUMS.







“Indeed!” replied the prudent Cat, not wishing to show
him how anxious she was.

“Yes, indeed,” continued the little Doggy, rather hurt at
her coldness: “it’s you that I’ve fallen in love with. Do you —
like me, Tittums ?”

- But Tittums would not answer, even with a single purr-r :
“and it was.only upon her giving him a sly look out of the
corner of her left eye that he guessed how much she did like
him. However, ‘made bold by even this small token of esteem,
he came quietly up, “and sat by her side; even going so far, at
last, as to take her out for a short walk down the garden-path,
wherediy looked through the railings at the people passing by.

“Well,” said Fido to himself, “I have no doubt but she
will love me in time; all the more, as I have great hopes of
growing bigger before the spring.”

But one morning, when Tittums came in from a visit she
had been paying her mamma, she was followed by a gentleman
from the tropics, who, with all the impudence of his race,

made himself quite at home, pressed Tittums’ paw to his

heart, called her “the loveliest of Cats,” asked her to oblige
him with a song, which he’ had been told she could sing very
sweetly, and never took the least notice of poor Fido, who
was sitting in the corner. To tell the truth, poor Fido was
very cross, and began to growl quite savagely; the more $0
when, to his dismay, he beheld the pleasure with which Tit-
tums heard all this nonsense. He could not think what: right
the bold stranger had to come there unasked; for all that he
had bright red and green feathers, a rakish, broad-brimmed hat,
and a gold-headed walking-cane, he was not good-looking, that
was very certain.

But Tittums was very much struck by his appearance and
bearing; his feathers were so pretty, he spoke so many lan-
guages, shrieked so terribly and in such a loud voice, had
travelled so much, and was so struck by the beauty of
Tittums, that, poor little Cat as she was, she ceased to care a
button for faithful Fido, and kept all her sly glances for Mr. .
Paul Parrot.

“Lovely Tittums,” said Mr. Paul, “you must forget such



upstart puppies as Fido. Listen to me—I am a traveller—I

speak five languages,—I have a palace made of golden bars,

within which is a perch fit for a king,—I have a pension of ~

bread and milk and Barcelona nuts: all of which I will share
with you, To-morrow we will go for a trip into the field
next to the house. Gvood-by for the present, my dear Pussy
Cat;’’ and he went away kissing his hand. |
Poor Fido howled. Naughty Tittums!
As day followed day, Miss we: neglected her little Dog
more and more. She walked out with Mr. Paul Parrot, she

sang to. him, looked kindly at him, and, in fact, only seemed

happy when he was by. Poor Fido was true to his first love,

although almost brought to despair; he got very thin indeed, |

and his fine bushy coat, which he had kept nice and_.clean,
became ragged and dirty. |

Indeed, Mr. Parrot carried all befow him; he was so grand,
so loving, and so clever, that Fido from being deserted became

despised, and was indeed thinking about. hanging himself on

the meat-hook in the kitchen.

THE PARROT COURTING THE JACKDAW.



lO

One evening, just after dark, as he was roaming about,
feeling very sad, and thinking that, perhaps, it would be better
to run away than to use the meat-hook, he all at once found
himself in the next garden, and while he was looking round
him. he heard voices.

‘Lovely Mrs. Daw,” said one of the voices which he
seemed to recognise, “I am a traveller—I speak five languages
—I have a palace made of golden bars, within which is a
perch fit for a king,—I have a pension of bread and milk and
nuts; all of which I will share with you. ‘To-morrow we will
fly for an excursion on to the great oak-tree in Farmer Hodges’
field.”

“Dear me!” thought Fido, “this must be Mr. Parrot.”
And, sure enough, so it was,—Mr. Parrot, indeed, and making
the warmest of love to old Mrs. Daw, the widow of Miser
Jack Daw, who, during a long life, and by means of stealing and
saving, had laid by a large fortune, which he had left Mrs.
Daw to enjoy.

The old widow seemed very much pleased at the warmth of



Il

Mr. Paul’s love, and no doubt thought that every word he said
was true; leering round at him with her old eyes, and wishing
that she had put on a clean muslin cap, as it might have made
her look even*younger than she thought she did.

As for Fido, he almost jumpéd for joy; he ran home as
soon as ever he could. > .

“Oh, Tittums!” said he, heedless of her scornful looks,
“what do you think I have found out? There is that rascal
of a Paul Parrot, who pretends so much love for you, courting
Widow Daw at this very moment; and if you come at once
you may see it with your own eyes.” |

“Nonsense !’’ replied Tittums: “I do not believe it.”

“Well,” said the Dog, “to convince you, if you will only
come to the other side of the wall you shall see that what I
have said is quite true.”

But Pussy, trusting in the honour of Mr. Paul, would not
believe a word, and-it was only after a great deal of persuasion
that she was induced to jump over the wall and listen.

Mr. Paul and Mrs. Daw were still courting, and the Parrot

was trying, by coaxing the old lady, to find out how much she
was worth, and where all her treasures were hid. Indeed
Mrs. Daw was just on the point of telling him her secret,
when Tittums, unable to contain herself, rushed at Mr. Paul
and scratched his face.

i Oh, you bad Parrot!’ she said; “did you not promise to
marry me, and take me to your golden palace?”’ )

“Golden palace!” screamed Mi Daw: “ why, you wicked
bird, that’s what you promised me. Stay, ma’am, what did he
say besides?—did he promise you any bread and milk, or any
Barcelona nuts?” .

“Yes, he did—he did—he did,” continued the Cat, scratch-
ing and clawing the false, faithless Parrot as she spoke.

“Well,” said Pussy, now fairly exhausted, ‘I hope you are
satisfied: if ever you come near our house again, I'll scratch out
every feather you have on your back;” and so she left him,
taking Fido with her, who, in spite of his general good nature
and the Parrot’s rage, could not resist giving him two or three

sharp bites,

15;

As soon as Mrs. Daw was left alone with Paul, she began
to upbraid him with his falseness,—“You vulgar, stuck-up,
ugly, awkward deceiver! you have neither honesty enough to
live by, nor wings enough to fly with.” Whereupon she
jumped at him and gave him such a plucking as spoilt his
good looks. : |

Never after this was the Parrot able to hold up his head.
Every ‘one scorned him: even his golden palace turned out to
be a brass cage; and for his misd@eds a chain was fastened
‘round his leg. He was confined to a wooden perch, which,
out of pure spite, he was always pecking.

Old Widow Daw kept her secret, and remained unmarried.

Tittums could not help admiring the constancy of Fido;
and when in the spring he had grown bigger, and was_pro-
moted to a sweet red and black collar, Pussy found that she
loved him very much indeed, and made up her mind _ never

more to forsake him.

THE

pe RINCE WITH. THE LONG NOSE.



THE PRINCE WITH THE NOSE.

ee eee ar

THERE once lived a King who wished to marry a very beautiful lady
in his dominions, for he had no Queen to share his throne. Whenever
he went to pay this lady a visit, a great ugly black cat came out to the
door to prevent his entering the house. The King was so enraged that
he trod on the cat’s tail, upon which the animal immediately changed

into a Magician who threatened him with his vengeance.
1





After having said this, the Magician vanished, but the King was too
much in love to care much about his threats, so that the beautiful lady

soon became Queen. In the course of time, a little Prince was born, and

the Magician was quite forgotten. But everybody was surprised when
the nurse brought in the baby to be looked at, to see that the child’s

nose was such an enormous size as to throw quite a shadow on his face.

He looked all nose, but as he was a Prince the courtiers and ladies all

declared that he was the sweetest little fellow in the world.
2







When the Prince who was named PRINCE WISH, had grown a
tall young fellow, quite a new fashion had been set in the shape and size
of noses. All the lords in waiting and servants who had snub or pug noses
had been sent away, or remained only to be laughed at, for it would never
have done for them to be always staring at the Prince. To have a large
nose was declared to be the mark of beauty, so that the Prince learned
to be quite proud of his nose, and might almost have been persuaded to

put a ring in it like a hog, if anybody had thought of such an ornament.
8





Now this big nose was a plan of the Magician to punish the King.
It soon became a great trouble to the Prince. He had grown a fine
young man, when a charming Princess paid a visit to the Queen, and her
beauty was so great that all the court was loud in her praises. PRINCE
WISH fell deeply in love with her, and declared to himself that he
would willingly go to the end of the world for the sake of a single smile
from the dear Princess Darling. As it was, however, he found it very

hard to have to keep so far away from her as the length of his nose,
4







Then he began to doubt about the beauty and convenience of this
striking feature of his face,—for when the Princess, who really liked him
very much, gave him permission to kiss her cheek, he found his nose so
much in the way that he was ready to wring it off. He was found look-
ing at himself in a mirror, and bewailing his awkwardness. In spite of
this, however, Darling agreed to marry him, and the day having been
fixed, the Royal party were going to the church, when they suddenly saw
the Magician flying over the steeple with the Princess in his arms.

w

MM



PRINCE WISH was deeply grieved, but at last he sprang up, took
his sword, and declared that he would not return till he had found the
Princess Darling. After a long and weary journey he came to a wood,
beyond which, a high barrier of rocks almost shut out the last rays of the
sun; but he saw a strange glimmering from a hole in the rock itself, and

on approaching, found that it came from a cave, where a little old woman

sat reading by the light of a candle. ‘“ Who are you, who come here to

interrupt me!’ she called out, as she stooped under the low doorway.
6





The Prince could not reply for laughing, for the old lady wore a
great pair of tortoiseshell spectacles, and her nose was so short that
tliey: would hardly stay on it. WISH had never seen such a snub.

‘You are not very polite to laugh at a woman who is a hundred years

old,” said the little dame, growing angry. ‘ You'll find your nose will be
laughed at just as much as mine is before you’ve got far on your travels.”
Her words came true enough, for in the very next village the people all

came out and jeered at him, hooting and calling him ‘“ Nosey.”

v
— & -





The Prince was sorry, and this was what the old woman wanted, for
she was his good fairy, and when PRINCE WISH went into the woods,
he came to a splendid palace that shone like silver. At a window, waving
her handkerchief to him, who should he see but the Princess Darling.

He was up stairs in a moment, and was about to kiss the Princess, when

he remembered his nose, and feeling for it, found it had shrunk to an
ordinary size. Delighted at this, he took the Princess in his arms, and

at the same moment she was restored from the power of the Magician.

The nest, made of sticks, was placed high on a tree,
And in it were chattering Magpics three ;

Tho’ dizzy with flying and breathless with fright,
Poor Jack had not learned to be silent quite.

SITTUMS AND FIDO MAKING IT IP.

LONDON: GEORGE ROUTLEDGE AND SONS.









THE FAITHLESS PARROT.

By CHARLES H. BENNETT.

THERE once lived happily together, in a fine house, a tortoise-
shell Cat and a pretty white Dog: the Cat’s name was Tittums ;
the Dog's, Fido. In course of time the pretty Dog fell in love
with the Cat, and only waited for a good chance to disclose
his . affections. This came one day, when Tittums had put
her paws on the fender, dropped her head a little on one
side, half closed her eyes, and seemed thinking of nothing at
all. ‘Then Fido, who lay stretched at full length upon the
hearth-rug, looked steadfastly at her, and heaving a gentle
whine, said,—

“Oh, ‘littums, I’ve fallen in love!”

FIDO COURTING TITTUMS.




“Indeed!” replied the prudent Cat, not wishing to show
him how anxious she was.

“Yes, indeed,” continued the little Doggy, rather hurt at
her coldness: “it’s you that I’ve fallen in love with. Do you —
like me, Tittums ?”

- But Tittums would not answer, even with a single purr-r :
“and it was.only upon her giving him a sly look out of the
corner of her left eye that he guessed how much she did like
him. However, ‘made bold by even this small token of esteem,
he came quietly up, “and sat by her side; even going so far, at
last, as to take her out for a short walk down the garden-path,
wherediy looked through the railings at the people passing by.

“Well,” said Fido to himself, “I have no doubt but she
will love me in time; all the more, as I have great hopes of
growing bigger before the spring.”

But one morning, when Tittums came in from a visit she
had been paying her mamma, she was followed by a gentleman
from the tropics, who, with all the impudence of his race,

made himself quite at home, pressed Tittums’ paw to his

heart, called her “the loveliest of Cats,” asked her to oblige
him with a song, which he’ had been told she could sing very
sweetly, and never took the least notice of poor Fido, who
was sitting in the corner. To tell the truth, poor Fido was
very cross, and began to growl quite savagely; the more $0
when, to his dismay, he beheld the pleasure with which Tit-
tums heard all this nonsense. He could not think what: right
the bold stranger had to come there unasked; for all that he
had bright red and green feathers, a rakish, broad-brimmed hat,
and a gold-headed walking-cane, he was not good-looking, that
was very certain.

But Tittums was very much struck by his appearance and
bearing; his feathers were so pretty, he spoke so many lan-
guages, shrieked so terribly and in such a loud voice, had
travelled so much, and was so struck by the beauty of
Tittums, that, poor little Cat as she was, she ceased to care a
button for faithful Fido, and kept all her sly glances for Mr. .
Paul Parrot.

“Lovely Tittums,” said Mr. Paul, “you must forget such
upstart puppies as Fido. Listen to me—I am a traveller—I

speak five languages,—I have a palace made of golden bars,

within which is a perch fit for a king,—I have a pension of ~

bread and milk and Barcelona nuts: all of which I will share
with you, To-morrow we will go for a trip into the field
next to the house. Gvood-by for the present, my dear Pussy
Cat;’’ and he went away kissing his hand. |
Poor Fido howled. Naughty Tittums!
As day followed day, Miss we: neglected her little Dog
more and more. She walked out with Mr. Paul Parrot, she

sang to. him, looked kindly at him, and, in fact, only seemed

happy when he was by. Poor Fido was true to his first love,

although almost brought to despair; he got very thin indeed, |

and his fine bushy coat, which he had kept nice and_.clean,
became ragged and dirty. |

Indeed, Mr. Parrot carried all befow him; he was so grand,
so loving, and so clever, that Fido from being deserted became

despised, and was indeed thinking about. hanging himself on

the meat-hook in the kitchen.

THE PARROT COURTING THE JACKDAW.
lO

One evening, just after dark, as he was roaming about,
feeling very sad, and thinking that, perhaps, it would be better
to run away than to use the meat-hook, he all at once found
himself in the next garden, and while he was looking round
him. he heard voices.

‘Lovely Mrs. Daw,” said one of the voices which he
seemed to recognise, “I am a traveller—I speak five languages
—I have a palace made of golden bars, within which is a
perch fit for a king,—I have a pension of bread and milk and
nuts; all of which I will share with you. ‘To-morrow we will
fly for an excursion on to the great oak-tree in Farmer Hodges’
field.”

“Dear me!” thought Fido, “this must be Mr. Parrot.”
And, sure enough, so it was,—Mr. Parrot, indeed, and making
the warmest of love to old Mrs. Daw, the widow of Miser
Jack Daw, who, during a long life, and by means of stealing and
saving, had laid by a large fortune, which he had left Mrs.
Daw to enjoy.

The old widow seemed very much pleased at the warmth of
Il

Mr. Paul’s love, and no doubt thought that every word he said
was true; leering round at him with her old eyes, and wishing
that she had put on a clean muslin cap, as it might have made
her look even*younger than she thought she did.

As for Fido, he almost jumpéd for joy; he ran home as
soon as ever he could. > .

“Oh, Tittums!” said he, heedless of her scornful looks,
“what do you think I have found out? There is that rascal
of a Paul Parrot, who pretends so much love for you, courting
Widow Daw at this very moment; and if you come at once
you may see it with your own eyes.” |

“Nonsense !’’ replied Tittums: “I do not believe it.”

“Well,” said the Dog, “to convince you, if you will only
come to the other side of the wall you shall see that what I
have said is quite true.”

But Pussy, trusting in the honour of Mr. Paul, would not
believe a word, and-it was only after a great deal of persuasion
that she was induced to jump over the wall and listen.

Mr. Paul and Mrs. Daw were still courting, and the Parrot

was trying, by coaxing the old lady, to find out how much she
was worth, and where all her treasures were hid. Indeed
Mrs. Daw was just on the point of telling him her secret,
when Tittums, unable to contain herself, rushed at Mr. Paul
and scratched his face.

i Oh, you bad Parrot!’ she said; “did you not promise to
marry me, and take me to your golden palace?”’ )

“Golden palace!” screamed Mi Daw: “ why, you wicked
bird, that’s what you promised me. Stay, ma’am, what did he
say besides?—did he promise you any bread and milk, or any
Barcelona nuts?” .

“Yes, he did—he did—he did,” continued the Cat, scratch-
ing and clawing the false, faithless Parrot as she spoke.

“Well,” said Pussy, now fairly exhausted, ‘I hope you are
satisfied: if ever you come near our house again, I'll scratch out
every feather you have on your back;” and so she left him,
taking Fido with her, who, in spite of his general good nature
and the Parrot’s rage, could not resist giving him two or three

sharp bites,

As soon as Mrs. Daw was left alone with Paul, she began
to upbraid him with his falseness,—“You vulgar, stuck-up,
ugly, awkward deceiver! you have neither honesty enough to
live by, nor wings enough to fly with.” Whereupon she
jumped at him and gave him such a plucking as spoilt his
good looks. : |

Never after this was the Parrot able to hold up his head.
Every ‘one scorned him: even his golden palace turned out to
be a brass cage; and for his misd@eds a chain was fastened
‘round his leg. He was confined to a wooden perch, which,
out of pure spite, he was always pecking.

Old Widow Daw kept her secret, and remained unmarried.

Tittums could not help admiring the constancy of Fido;
and when in the spring he had grown bigger, and was_pro-
moted to a sweet red and black collar, Pussy found that she
loved him very much indeed, and made up her mind _ never

more to forsake him.

THE

pe RINCE WITH. THE LONG NOSE.
THE PRINCE WITH THE NOSE.

ee eee ar

THERE once lived a King who wished to marry a very beautiful lady
in his dominions, for he had no Queen to share his throne. Whenever
he went to pay this lady a visit, a great ugly black cat came out to the
door to prevent his entering the house. The King was so enraged that
he trod on the cat’s tail, upon which the animal immediately changed

into a Magician who threatened him with his vengeance.
1


After having said this, the Magician vanished, but the King was too
much in love to care much about his threats, so that the beautiful lady

soon became Queen. In the course of time, a little Prince was born, and

the Magician was quite forgotten. But everybody was surprised when
the nurse brought in the baby to be looked at, to see that the child’s

nose was such an enormous size as to throw quite a shadow on his face.

He looked all nose, but as he was a Prince the courtiers and ladies all

declared that he was the sweetest little fellow in the world.
2




When the Prince who was named PRINCE WISH, had grown a
tall young fellow, quite a new fashion had been set in the shape and size
of noses. All the lords in waiting and servants who had snub or pug noses
had been sent away, or remained only to be laughed at, for it would never
have done for them to be always staring at the Prince. To have a large
nose was declared to be the mark of beauty, so that the Prince learned
to be quite proud of his nose, and might almost have been persuaded to

put a ring in it like a hog, if anybody had thought of such an ornament.
8


Now this big nose was a plan of the Magician to punish the King.
It soon became a great trouble to the Prince. He had grown a fine
young man, when a charming Princess paid a visit to the Queen, and her
beauty was so great that all the court was loud in her praises. PRINCE
WISH fell deeply in love with her, and declared to himself that he
would willingly go to the end of the world for the sake of a single smile
from the dear Princess Darling. As it was, however, he found it very

hard to have to keep so far away from her as the length of his nose,
4




Then he began to doubt about the beauty and convenience of this
striking feature of his face,—for when the Princess, who really liked him
very much, gave him permission to kiss her cheek, he found his nose so
much in the way that he was ready to wring it off. He was found look-
ing at himself in a mirror, and bewailing his awkwardness. In spite of
this, however, Darling agreed to marry him, and the day having been
fixed, the Royal party were going to the church, when they suddenly saw
the Magician flying over the steeple with the Princess in his arms.

MM



PRINCE WISH was deeply grieved, but at last he sprang up, took
his sword, and declared that he would not return till he had found the
Princess Darling. After a long and weary journey he came to a wood,
beyond which, a high barrier of rocks almost shut out the last rays of the
sun; but he saw a strange glimmering from a hole in the rock itself, and

on approaching, found that it came from a cave, where a little old woman

sat reading by the light of a candle. ‘“ Who are you, who come here to

interrupt me!’ she called out, as she stooped under the low doorway.
6


The Prince could not reply for laughing, for the old lady wore a
great pair of tortoiseshell spectacles, and her nose was so short that
tliey: would hardly stay on it. WISH had never seen such a snub.

‘You are not very polite to laugh at a woman who is a hundred years

old,” said the little dame, growing angry. ‘ You'll find your nose will be
laughed at just as much as mine is before you’ve got far on your travels.”
Her words came true enough, for in the very next village the people all

came out and jeered at him, hooting and calling him ‘“ Nosey.”

v
— & -


The Prince was sorry, and this was what the old woman wanted, for
she was his good fairy, and when PRINCE WISH went into the woods,
he came to a splendid palace that shone like silver. At a window, waving
her handkerchief to him, who should he see but the Princess Darling.

He was up stairs in a moment, and was about to kiss the Princess, when

he remembered his nose, and feeling for it, found it had shrunk to an
ordinary size. Delighted at this, he took the Princess in his arms, and

at the same moment she was restored from the power of the Magician.
