Very useful things indeed; A sharp scout knife for brother, Which, when camping he will need; And when sister goes to dances She'irlike -a silver gown, A nice blue scarf for father, To wear when he goes-to town. Now, fbr grandma and grandpa, Oli, what have I got for them? For grandma, a nice pair of slippers, For grandpa a' fountain; peri. Aunty and= uncle want something, too, Well, I will see what I can do. ; A nice toothbrush for aunty, ■ To. clean her teeth each day, And a neat brown wallet for uncle In Which to keep his weekly pay. I have just been through the family And many more things there are to see; Come buy! Come buy!" ••■„ —By Mary de Lautour, 11 (original).
