“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.

Jack and Jill

“Jack and Jill”

“Yes, here we are. Two tiny bears. The stony hill we scale,

To bring you water from the top within a wooden pail.”

But, crash! And Jack was on his head – water in the sky,

And when he found his Jill again, they sadly said, “Good-bye.”

“John, the Bull-Dog Puppy.”

John belongs to my brother. He is not beautiful but is kind-hearted and good-tempered. My brother says bull-dogs are not half so bad as they look, which I think is a good thing, for some of them look terrible creatures, and I always feel inclined to cross over the way when I see one coming.

The Careless Bear Barber!

Illustration:  "The Careless Barber."  Animal Antics  By Louis Wain.  S. W. Partridge & Co: London. Ca 1900-1910.

“The Careless Barber.”

“I’ll have it short upon the top,” cried little Master Bear,

“But please leave the curly bits and cut the rest with care.”

“I will,” replied the Barber, “for I hardly need say,

My customers are treated in a very careful way.”

But even while he spoke the words, the scissors moved an inch,

And gave the ear of Master Bear a very painful pinch.

His father heard the cry of woe, and turned, his fears to hush,

When down his throat that careless boy let slip the soapy brush.

We Won’t Let Him Mix With the Other Dog!

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.

Blustering March Begins!

Cold blustering March is a surly young fellow,

But his face so forbidding and gloomy will mellow;

Though at first with his howls he makes every one shiver,

With warmth and delight he will soon be a-quiver.

For a sweet little lady is trailing his way,

And in spite of himself he is happy and gay;

Attended with sunshine and zephyrs and birds,

She is winning him over with soft, gentle words.

1905 – Twin Boys In A Cage!

Illustration:  Little Bo-Peep and Other Good Stories.  Henry Altemus Company: Philadelphia.  1905.

“BETTY’S GREAT HUMAN MENAGERIE”

When the Fairchild family went South to live, they engaged an old colored woman to cook for them. When she came, she brought with her little twin grandchildren, Pete and Abram. Betty Fairchild had not seen very many colored babies in her life, and she went quite wild with delight over these.

“Oh!” she said, “I wish I could keep them for my own, forever and always.”

But the trouble was that Pete and Abram did not want to be kept; they liked the little cabin where they had lived before better than Mr. Fairchild’s big house, and every morning they ran away, and their poor grandmother had to stop her work to run after them. Betty complained about it bitterly.
