These are Jack and Jill.  Do you not see their pail?  They fill it with salt wa-ter.

“What a sweet lit-tle lamb!” said May.  “No:  it is a wolf.  I must run:  he will eat me.”

DOLL AND I.

[Illustration]

  “Oh, dear!  On, dear! 
  ’Tis al-most nine. 
  The birds all sing,
  The sun does shine. 
  Poor Doll and I
  To school must go: 
  I don’t see why,
  We hate it so. 
  I hate those let-ters.  They twist and turn. 
  There’s no use try-ing:  I’ll nev-er learn.

  “Hur-rah! hur-rah! 
  At last it’s two! 
  I am so glad! 
  What shall we do? 
  Come, Doll, let’s run. 
  I’ll nev-er go,
  When I get big,
  To school, I know;
  But ev-er-y min-ute of the day
  I’ll spend just as I like, in play.”

THE BIRTHDAY PRESENT.

[Illustration]

“Hold it tight, Tom, dear,” said May.  “Mam-ma will be pleased at her birth-day gift.  I think it is just love-ly.”  But the words were not out of her mouth when Tom caught his foot and fell at full length on the car-pet.  Crash! went the vase that was to have been mam-ma’s pres-ent in-to bits.

May burst in-to tears, but she stopped all at once when she saw that Tom did not get up, and that his face was grow-ing ve-ry white.  “Oh!  Tom,” she cried, “is a-ny-thing the matter?”

“My knee,” groaned Tom, “it hurts aw-ful-ly.”

[Illustration]

May ran at once for pa-pa.  He came, and Tom was lift-ed up and put to bed, and the doc-tor was sent for.  It was found that his knee was bad-ly hurt, and that he must not get out of bed for a month.  Hard work it was for Tom, but May stayed by him all the time, and at the month’s end he was well a-gain.

ROVER PASSES BY.

[Illustration:  In Danger.]

  A scared little couple,
    Fright in each eye! 
  O what is the matter? 
    A dog passes by! 
      Bow-wow!

  I’m sure ’tis a big dog,
    Or kitty’d not hide,
  And her brave little mistress
    So nearly have cried! 
      Bow-wow!

The Sea foam

One bright spring day Tom got out his new sail-boat, “The Sea Foam.”  Dol-ly went with him, and they set out for the pond.  They had but just put the boat in the wa-ter, when they saw their cous-in Grace.  She had a doll in her arms, which she was car-ry-ing with great care; and she had her eyes on the ground as she walked a-long.

Here is a sto-ry in four pictures.  Read it for your-selves.
