The Cruel Goat Herder!

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.

Pa Grabs Cat By Neck – Cat Attacks!

Illustration:  Tom Cat.  Peck’s Bad Boy and His Pa.  Written by George W. Peck.  Illustrated by True Williams.  W. B. Conkey Company. 1900.

“PA’S SHIRT WAS NO PROTECTION AT ALL.”

Oh, my ! I think Pa took the tom cat right by the neck, the way he does me, and that left all the cat’s feet free to get to their work. By the way the cat squalled as though it was being choked, I know Pa had him by the neck.

“Ethel’s Puppy”

Now, what do you think of Cousin Ethel’s little foxterrier. From the very moment that his eyes opened and he could waddle about, he was in trouble, and that has continued ever since. His name is Scamp, which suits him very well, and he is four months old next Thursday.

Last Monday he distinguished himself by stealing a bone nearly as big as himself. Cook had something to say to this, and Scamp still feels very sore, but he is friendly with Cook all the same: he thinks it best to keep in with her.

Jim, the Foxterrier.  “Tubbing Time.”

Jim is very young. He belongs to the coachman’s son. He is a careless dog and never looks where he is going. If there is a mud puddle about, he is sure to fall into it. If there is a sack of coal in the yard, Jim is sure to rub against it, so Jim is usually very dirty, and as we won’t let him mix with the other dogs unless he is clean, he has to be washed every other day, which makes him very sorrowful.

Beppo – Owner Likes Poodle’s Tricks But Not His Temperament!

“Beppo, the Poodle.”

Now I come to a very remarkable dog, and that is Beppo, the French Poodle. I could write a whole book about Beppo.

Do you know he has to go to a dog barber to be shaved, and this cost quite a lot of money. Poodles, when they are not shaved, have long hair all over their bodies that nearly touches the ground.

Beppo is wonderfully clever. He will stand on his head when he is told; he will also pretend to be dead, and if the piano is played to him he will dance round the room on his hind legs, turning round all the time as if he were waltzing.

Beppo will jump through a hoop, and can do this backwards although it is very difficult. When he has finished his tricks, he expects a lump of sugar as a reward.

I am sorry to say he is not a good-tempered dog, and none of the other dogs like him, which is a great trouble, for there is always the danger of a fight. For this reason I believe Beppo is going to leave us shortly.

Angry? She Cut Off Their Tails With A Carving Knife!

Illustration: "THREE BLIND MICE."  Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes.

“THREE BLIND MICE.”

Three Blind Mice,

See how they run!

They all ran after the farmer’s wife,

Who cut off their tails with a carving knife;

Did ever you hear such a thing in your life

As three blind mice?
