,.j -. A 'S X was a -little
S girl who had one great
fault; she was discontented.
She had finished her lessons one morning
and put on her hat to go
into the garden with her
,Jittle brother where they
Shad a small piece of ground
all to themselves.













.

I, l c I- ---
























Sthe centre of
their garden was
a Sunflower, and on it
were two or three blossoms,
one of which was so lovely i'
that every one who saw it could
not help stopping in admiration.






qtr was ver)' proud of the
plant. and every spare
moment she used to stand before it
and tell it all her troubles. On this
occasion she was in one of her worst
moods, and as usual left her brother to
play by himself and went up to the Sun-
flower to grumble.







1 talked away for a few minutes
and then looked up at it as if she
expected it to nod its head and quite agree
with her, when to her surprise she heard it
say in a quiet sweet voice-
"Gertie, dear, would you like me to tell
you a story about myself."

as she wiped the tears from her eyes
with the back of her hand, and seated her-
self in the summer-house close by.









V ' I was quite a tiny green bud
I was a very .discontented
J little thing like you until one day
as your Mamma came past me a small
violet dropped from her dress, and, when it
heard me complaining, said 'Why are you

on you, making you look so lovely. How
would you like to be put down on the
ground to grow like a daisy, or be as I
was, where you could hardly feel the sun,
and where you had no companions to talk
to, and stood the chance of being trodden
on and having all your petals crushed ?

felt very much ashamed of myself,
and made up my mind not to be dis-
contented again, and in a few days I
found everybody noticing me instead of




passing me by.
th that is just what you must do,"
'- continued the blossom,
"and you will soon find
that people will love
instead of disliking
"you." ,
