Mr. John Lea , who is a frequent
contributor to Cassell's Little Folks ,
has a very charming turn for verses
for children. A speclment , entitled
"Silly Peter , " appears in the June
number of that magazine :
Up to the garden pathway ,
Down the kitchen stair.
Over to the greenhouse
Through the summer air ,
Peter roaming idly ,
Lazy and content.
Nothing left to think of.
Warbled as he went :
"Where shall I go , go , go ?
Up to the hills of blue ?
Down where the streamlets flow ?
What shall I do do do ? "
All around the haystack ,
Through the stable door ,
Climbing on the manger ,
flipping to the floor.
Out'into the farmyard ;
On no purpose bent ,
Peter wandered idly ,
Singing as he went :
"Where shall I go , go , go ?
Up to the hills of blue ?
Down where the kingcups grow ?
What shall I do do do ? "
And all the sunny morning ,
Half the afternoon
Silly , silly Peter !
Lazy little tune.
But I'm pleased to mention.
When the shades grew long ,
All .the farmer's live stock
Answered Peter's song :
"What should we do , do , do ,
Had we the power- " they said ,
"Send little boys like you
Rapidly to bed. be.d , bed. "
How Mllllo Found the Calf.
One night , when Jamie brought the
cows home , he said there was a little
calf down in the pasture with "Old
"The.n , " said Jamie's father , "I must
go right after supper and bring them
both to the barn. "
"Please let me go with you , papa , "
cried the 3-year-old Millie. "I want
to see the little calf ju&t as soon as 'I
So after supper Millie and her father
went off , hand in hand , down the lane ,
past the corn field and the potato
patch and the clover field , to the bluegrass -
grass pasture. There down in the hol
low next to the oat-stubble field was
Old Jersey quietly feeding.
"Where is the little calf ? " asked
"I don't know , " said her father , "we
must look around and find it. "
So they went about the pasture and
looking into the fence corners , and
into all the places where the grass
grew tall ; but no calf could they
"Old Jersey must have hidden it ,
perhaps down in the swamp , " said Mil
lie's father. "You and I will just
drive her back there , and perhaps she
will show us where it is. "
So they drove Old Jersey beyond the
pasture , into the swamp. But Old Jer
sey only browsed among the bushes ,
as if to say , "My little baby is safe , and
I am perfectly contented to feed down
nere , if you wish me to. "
It was now fast growing dark , and
Millie's father said Old Jersey must be
driven to the barn to be milked.
"We will bring her back to the pas
ture in the morning , " he said , "and by
9 that time I think she will be glad to
go and see her baby-calf , and we can
follow her. "
Millie was disappointed , and she felt
sorry , too , that the poor little calf must
be left alone all night She made up
her mind to get up very early next
morning , so as to be ready to go with
Old Jersey to the pasture. When she
[ went to bed , she thought about the lit-
tie calf and cried , "The little bossy
Is all alone , all alone down in the
swamp , " she sobbed.
Then her mother came and told her
the calf was probably fast asleep now ,
and they would find it all safe in the
The next morning Millie awoke very
early , and before she could open her
eyes , she said , "I want to go and find
the little calfie ! "
By the time she was dressed and had
had some breakfast her father was
ready to go. They went out through
the barnyard and Millie's father open
ed the gate to let Old Jersey go into
the lane. Then Old Jersey walked
away very fast , and they walked fast.
too , and followed her back to the pas
ture. But instead of leading them
straight to her calf she only mooed a
little and then began feeding on some
clover 4hat grew down in the hollow ,
next to the oat-stubble field.
"Well , daughter , " said Millie's father ,
"I will leave you and Old Jersey here ,
while I go and look though the swamp
for the little calf. She must be hid
den down there somewhere. I think
Old Jersey doesn't mean that we shall
see her. "
But Millie's father was hardly out of
sight when Old Jersey stopped feeding
and began to moo. The mooing sound
ed different from the moos she made
when she came into the pasture. At
the same moment Millie heard a sound
off at the further end of the stubble
field. She looked , and what should
she see but a little red-and-white calf
-gunning toward her !
When the calf reached the fence , - iran
ran along to an open place where Old
Jersey stood. Old Jersey had gone to
that open place to wait as soon as she
saw the little calf coming.
It was a happy time for Millie as she
watched the little bossy get its break
fast of fresh milk and 'then lie down
by Old Jersey's side to rest.
When Millie's father came in sight
half an hour later , quite discouraged
his little daughter ran to meet him.
"I have seen the little calfie , papa ! '
she cried. "Old Jersey called her to
come just as soon as you had gone. She
wasn't afraid to let me see her little
calfie ! "
And they went'all four , up the lane to
the barn , the little red-and-white calf
trotting along by Old Jersey's side ,
and Old Jersey keeping a sharp eye on
Betty's Birthday lings.
Betty Ellis had had a birthday partj
every year she had lived , until the
year of her seventh birthday. At tha
time her mamma was very sick , so al
thought of a party had to be given up
Betty was dreadfully disappointed , bu
bravely tried to make the best of it.
Now Betty had a dear , dear auntie
who lived at their house , and was al
ways thinking and doing the most de
lightful things. So when she saw how
bad Betty felt she put on her best
thinking-cap and soon had made up a
clever plan for a birthday surprise
without any party.
For several days before the birthday
Betty noticed that auntie looked very
funny and mysterious , and she just
knew something nice was going to
When she opened her eyes on the
morning of her birthday she- saw ,
leaning up against the side of her bed ,
a large bag. It looked like the bags
that ragmen use to gather rags in , and
seemed to be full of something very
odd in .shape.
Betty jumped out of bed to look at
it , and there , tied to the drawstring ,
was a card with her name on it. Of
course she knew it was a birthday
present. "But what a funny way to
give one ! " she thought , as she pulled
it open. Inside was just what she had
longed for a new doll-carriage for her
At breakfast time she found under
her plate a tiny bag made of pink silk.
Inside , wrapped in cotton , wa # a ring
with the tiniest speck of a diamond in
it. How she danced about and hugged
papa and auntie !
When she got ready to start for
school she found , in place of her old
book-satchel , a new school-bag , with
a story-hook in it It was hard to
have to leave that at home and put
her school books in its place. Jane ,
the cook , gave her a calico bag to
keep buttons in. She found this at
noon , up in her room ; also a pretty
laundry-bag from aun'ie , with six
new handkerchiefs in it. And when
papa came home at night he brought ,
instead of a box of candy , a big bag
full of candies and nuts.
But the nicest birthday bag of all ,
so Betty thought , was the one Tom
gave her. Tom was the gardener's
son , and a very good friend of hers.
He had two of the dearest little pup
pies that ever were seen , and Betty
had been teasing for one ever since
they were born.
How surprised she was when , on her
birthday , Tom came in with a horse's
feed-bag in his hand , carrying it very
carefully , and begged her to accept it.
It seemed a queer present , but she
thanked him and peeped in , and there
was- the prettiest puppy , the one with
the white nose.
When Betty went to bed that night ,
with the ring on her finger , the doll-
carriage at the foot of the bed and
the puppy in her arms , she told auntie ,
in their bedtime talk , that she thought
birthday bags were just exactly as nice
as Christmas stockings.

An Amusliijr Magical Experiment.
Soak a piece of thread in strong salt
water , dry it , and repeat two or three
times. When thoroughly dry tie one
2nd to a chandelier and on the other ,
ar lower end , tie a ring or some small
but not too heavy article.
It is now ready for the experiment
Set fire to the thread , and behold the
ring does not fall to the floor , nor does
the thread break.
The explanation is : The thread has
in reality been burned , but the salt
! \rith which the thread was saturated
forms a solid column , and that sup
ports the ring. Varied experiments
: an be made , using several threads for

vhich may suggest themselves to the
