Sylvia had all the time there was, and very little use to make of it.

THE KINGFISHER.
(By Jean Hobler, Hinemoa, 8 Lennox street.)
A little kingfisher so merry and gay.
Went out in search of some food one
day.
He brought back a worm and also a fish,
Which his wife and chicks thought quite
a nice dish.
He sat on a bough and shared the food’
round.
And each of the babies dropped some
on the ground.
But when they had finished they all
went to sleep
And never woke once till the sun up
did peep.
