The Bicycle Davie Did Not Get.
Poor Davie! He cried himself to sleep thinking of the loss his fault had caused him. But the disappointment did him good.

About a pretty dog I have to tell, –
A Maltese dog, so curly, white, and fluffy;
His nose was pinker than a pink sea-shell,
His eyes were also pink, – his name was PUFFY.
When he was six weeks old, quite small and scared,
He came unto the house of his new Missis:
His teeth were sharp, he bit so hard,
She cried, “Oh what a charming doggie this is!”
When Puffy slept he rolled himself up tight,
And looked just like a little worsted bundle;
He used a large round stool to roll and bite,
Which on the floor his Missis used to trundle.
