“The St. Bernard’s Visitors.”

Rex is what you might call a noble dog. He is very good natured, he looks after the weak, . .  Rex allows the fowls to feed out of his dish, and they are not a bit afraid of him.

Then this big dog will let our baby ride on his back, you have to hold her on, you know, or she would tumble off, and that would never do.

Rex can be cross if he likes, and when tramps come into our garden, he barks and growls, so that they walk off in very quick time.

“Oh! I am going to tell the King the sky is falling,” says Chicken Little.

“How do you know?” says Henny Penny.

“I saw it with my eyes, I heard it with my ears, and a piece of it fell on my head.”

“May I come with you?” says Henny Penny.

“Certainly,” says Chicken Little.

Don’t You Remember? I’m Your Sister!

“O Brother, don’t!”

Now the Crocodile was so surprised at hearing the Hen call him Brother that he kept his jaws wide open and forgot to swallow his dinner. He kept them open for some time, gaping foolishly, wondering what the Hen could mean, and how he could possibly be her brother. And by the time he had remembered how hungry he was, there was nothing for him to eat. For the Hen had skipped away just as fast as her feet would take her.
