LESSON 16. John, now you have read your book well, you may go and play with Charles. . Will you have a top, or a ball, or a kite? If you will be a good boy, you may have one of them. I like a kite the best of all, said Charles.

The wind blew, and the two boys were glad to see the kite fly so high in the air; but it soon fell down, and a hole was torn in it. This they knew how to mend. The next day it flew once more, but with more ill luck, for snap went the cord, and the kite flew a long way off. Yet they did not sit down and cry, but went to play with such toys as they had.

LESSON 17. The sun shines.

It is time to get up. Jane, come and dress Charles. Now, Charles,


down stairs. Fetch that chair. Sit down. Here is some bread and milk. . Do not spill the milk. Hold the spoon in your right

. hand. The crust is hard; but the milk will soak it. Do not throw the bread on the floor. We should eat bread, and not waste it.


LESSON 18. There is a poor fly in the milk. Take it out. Put it on this dry cloth. Poor thing! it is not quite dead. It moves; it shakes its wings; it wants to dry them; see how it wipes them with its feet. Put it on the floor where the sun shines. Then it will be dry, and warm. Poor fly! I am glad it was not dead. I hope it will soon be well.

Lesson 19. Where is puss? There she is. Do not pull her by the tail; that will hurt her. Charles does not like to be hurt; and puss does not like to be hurt. I saw a boy hurt a poor cat; he took hold of her tail, so she put out her sharp claws, and made his hand bleed. Give puss some milk.

She likes milk. Now that Charles is so kind to her, she will not scratch him, nor bite him. She purrs anú looks glad.
