"The Ladies in Waiting." Three
flowers bloom in Fairyland: The
rose, Margueritte Hisler; The lily,
Mary Patterson and the forget-me-not,
Mary Crawford. "So prettily,
go meekly do they bloom; 'tis plain to
see, they were not born to blush un
seen, and waste their sweetness on
the Desert Air."
Miss Ames' pupils dramatized
"Hansel and Gretel," from Grimm's
Fairy Tales. Paul Aiken as Hansel,
and Ethel Mikesell as Gretel, were the

Going in tho morning to the house
of Margaret Woodson, the witch, they
were enticed in. Hansel was seized
and put in a cage. Gretel being re
quested by the witch to try tho oven,
pretended ignorance and seizing the
wand set Hansel free. While showing
the children how the oven opened,
the witch was pushed in, where she
became a gingerbread cake.
