IN SCHOOL AND OUT.
When Jumbo was young and went to school
He soon found out this golden rule,
“Work when you work – play when you play,
That is always the wisest way!”
For if you play in school, mayhap,
You’ll have to wear a dunce’s cap;
And he who can’t his lessons say
Will have to work while others play!
So Jumbo first his lessons learned,
And then went out, his playtime earned,
And if an Elephant can be so wise
I’m sure a small boy can if he tries.

It was a sad little Pig that took his place on the stool in the corner of the school-room. And when his little sister Mary slipped into the room, and wrote upon the black-board behind him, “Jimmie is a bad boy,” he could hardly keep from crying.
Jimmie was not a bad Pig, and was not used to being punished. He did not like to be teased, either.
