THE BISCUIT GIRL. Once there was a little girl called Molly who was very fond of bis- cuits. She was so greedy and ate such a lot of biscuits that one day, when she was taking some out of a tin in thc pantry the fairy who pun- ishes greedy children turned her into a biscuit. Now, when thc maid came into the pantry and found some biscuits beside the tin, she said to herself: "Now, there's Miss Molly bin takin' what she didn't ought again," and put them all into thc tin. It was very dark and uncomfor- table in the biscuit-tin, and poor Molly was very frightened. But she was still more frightened when somebody look her out of thc tin and began to nibble her. She made herself as nasty as she could (and you know how very nas- ty you can make yourself), and they quickly pul her back in the lin with an unnibbled edge upwards.

THE PRINCESS AND THE DAISIES. Of all Hie flowers in the Princess's garden the six daisies that grew near the rose bush considered them- selves thc most important. "Thc roses are prettier than wc are, and the lilies more graceful, "but wc are much wiser, for we answer ques- tions that human beings bring us," said the smallest Daisy. "I don't know how we do it, but wc can, for my mother told mc so." The other flowers did not object lo thc pride of the daisies, for it was a nice sort of pride, but the :l:iisics themselves were very angry with one of their number who call- ed herself thc Queen.
