“The Fairy Balloon”
Way down the Scottish glen rode fast the fairy men,
Each upon a cricket thoroughbred, sir.
They were quite plainly seen, dressed all in hunter’s green
With thistles in their jockey caps of red, sir.

“Scott, the Collie.”
Now we come to a very different sort of dog. Scott came from Scotland last January, and is a handsome, princely dog. He comes of a very good family and has a pedigree a yard long, which means that he can tell you who his ancestors were for years and years.
Although he is very proud he is not above making himself useful, and in the picture you see him carrying a basket of apples. Indeed, he is very fond of carrying something, when out for a walk, such as a stick or an umbrella.
