Doubt not, little though there be,
But I'll cast a crumb to thee.
I'm rewarded if I spy
Pleasure glancing in thine eye;
See thee, when thou'st ate thy fill,
Plume thy breast and wipe thy bill.
Ask of me thy daily store,
Ever welcome to my door.

Langhorne.

A SUNBEAM. If I were a sunbeam

I know what I would do, I'd seek the whitest lilies

The rainy woodland through ; Stealing in among them,

The softest light I'd shed, Until each grateful lily

Raised its drooping head. 'If I were a sunbeam,

I know where I would go, Into the lowliest hovels,

All dark with want and woe; Till sad hearts look upward

I there would shine and shine ; Then they would think of heaven, Their sweet home and mine.

Lucy Larcom.

THE CHILD AND THE PIPER.

Piping down the valleys wild,

Piping songs of pleasant glee, On a cloud I saw a child,

And he, laughing, said to me, 'Pipe a song about a lamb;'

So I piped with merry cheer. Piper, pipe that song again ;' So I piped; he wept to hear.

[ocr errors]

Drop thy pipe, thy happy pipe,

Sing thy songs of happy cheer;' So I sang

the same again, While he wept with joy to hear. Piper, sit thee down and write

In a book, that all may read ;' So he vanished from my sight,

And I plucked a hollow reed,
And I made a rural pen,

,
And I stained the water clear,
And I wrote my happy songs
Every child may joy to hear.

W. Blake.

ARRANGED AND ANNOTATED BY

THE EDITOR OF 'POETRY FOR THE YOUNG.'

The 'Ne Plus Ultra' of School Reading Books, Well printed from clear type on good paper, bound in a strong and serviceable manner, with interesting and useful Illustrations from beginning to end.

In the Infants' Books of the Series, very careful graduation in the iniroduction of sounds and words is combined with that great desideratum in Infants' Readers-an interesting connected narrative form.

The distinctive features of the Series in the Higher Books are, that the passages selected (both Prose and Poetry) are taken from the Works of Standard Authors, thus complying with the requirements of the New Code, and that they are of such a nature as to awaken, sustain, and cultivate the interest of youthful readers.

'The Explanatory Matter is placed at the end of each Book, so that children may, at the discretion of the Teacher, be debarred access to it, and takes the form of three Appendices :(a) Explanatory Notes. (6) Biographical Notes.

(c) A Glossary of Rare or Difficult Words.

A SURE AND CERTAIN ROAD TO GOOD HAND-WRITING, After over a quarter of a century of public favour, are everywhere acknowledged as the best for simplicity and thoroughness. With these Copy-books the pupil advances in the art of writing with ease and rapidity, while the labour of the teacher is very greatly lightened. They are used in nearly all the best schools in Great Britain and the Colonies, and are adapted to the new Educational Code.

ADVANTAGES OF THE SYSTEM. I. It is the production of an experienced Schoolmaster. II. It gradually advances from the Simple Stroke to a superior Small-hand. III. The assistance given in the primal lesson is reduced as the learner progresses,

until all guidance is safely withdrawn. IV. The number and variety of the copies secure attention, and prevent the

pupils copying their own writing, as in books with single head-lines. V. The system insures the progress of the learner, and greatly lightens the

labours of the teachers. DARNELLL'S UNIVERSAL TWOPENNY COPY-BOOKS, for the

Standards. 16 Nos. Fcap. 4to. The first ten of which have on every alternate line appropriate and carefully written copies, in Pencil-coloured Ink, to be first written over and then imitated; the remaining numbers having Black Head-lines for imitation only. The whole gradually advanc
