SHE RECEIVES A BOUQUET. When Fluffy Ruffles and her aunt at Blenncrhaven Green 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.
