Please Help Poor Bossy!

Illustration:  “Poor bossy!”  Mary’s Little Lamb.  Henry Altemus Company: Philadelphia. 1906.

The cow, when she saw the little girls, went “Moo-oo-oo!” as if she were trying to say, “Can’t you help me?”

“Poor bossy!” said Alice; “I’ll try and help you.”

It was hard work, but after patient efforts bossy was released, and then she went “Moo-oo” again, as though she said, “Thank you.”

THE HUT IN THE FOREST.

“I am a King’s son, and was bewitched by a wicked witch, and made to live in this forest, as an old gray-haired man; no one was allowed to be with me but my three attendants in the form of a cock, a hen, and a brindled cow. The spell was not to be broken until a girl came to us whose heart was so good that she showed herself full of love, not only towards mankind, but towards animals – and that thou hast done, and by thee at midnight we were set free, and the old hut in the forest was changed back again into my royal palace.”
