SHE RECEIVES A BOUQUET.
When Fluffy Ruffles and her aunt at
Had spent a rather quiet week, with calls
from Mr. Dean,
Who took them "skyward" several times
(with Traddles left behind),
Fair Fluffy to her aunt remarked, "It's
come into, my mind
1 hat ir I had some fresh ait children upiO
iu sptnu a wee
To have good fun in various ways they
wouldn't have to seek'
When Fluffy planned her aunt's consent
was sure to follow fast,
And so a bunch of children came before
three days had passed
When Fluffy met them at the train they
rushed at her pell mell.
"Well, this is nice. I'm glad you've come.
I hope you're all quite well."
"You bet we are 1" "Geel ain't dis granT
"An see the trees to cfimbl"
Dear me I" said Fluffy to her aunt
'The11 have a lovely time."
An' can we pick der flowers, miss?"
'Pick every one you see.
And if you want to please me you will
bring a bunch to me.
The children climbed into the stage, all
ramping wild with joy;
Each pallid, skinny little girl, each pale
faced city boy.
Now, next the inn where Fluffy stayed
there lived a millionnaire
Who had a garden -filled brim full with
roses very rare;
And when the children reached the5DOt
and saw the pretty sight
They shrieked and yelled like maniacs to
show their keen delight.
To please "the lady" was their wish
"Let's make a big "bookay"
An' give it to her when she comes."
"Sure Mike I" "Dat's rightl" "Hoo
They picked and picked the roses rare,
they picked with all their might.
When Fluffy Ruffles came she wondered
if she saw aright.
"Here, Miss,-for you!" an urchin cried
and passed her the "bookay."
She took the flowers in her hand and
gazed in blank dismay.
The children hadn't left a single rosebud
in the place
Just then the millionnaire came up and
met her face to face.
"Oh! Mr. Bullionnaire, I'm sure the chil
dren did not know"
"Don't say a word. Miss Fluffy," said the
banker, bowms low.
"We'll all have lunch upon the lawn; it's
just the thing to do.
"The children showed they had good
taste in choosing these for you '
