The Cruel Goat Herder!

Illustration: Button Climbed a Tree.  Billy Whiskers, Jr. and His Chums.  By Frances Trego Montgomery.  Illustrated by Hugo von Hofsten.  The Saalfield, Publishing Company: Chicago, Akron, Ohio & New York. 1907.

Button climbed up a tree. . .

He saw a large white goat was loitering behind as if looking for a chance to escape. But every time she did so the man who was driving them gave her a cut with a long-lash whip.

“Did you see that man strike her?” asked Billy Jr. in an angry voice. “He has struck her for the last time, for I shall break his back and butt him into the lake.” Like a shot from a gun Billy Jr. darted down the road.

    1. I put this set with the goats on for May 5th – I was interested in the stereotype of the Mexican – he even had a master! Goats are cute and all but they are super destructive sometimes – so maybe anyone could be driven to goat madness (but whipping animals would depress me)!
