) The Mermaids.

\\ite-capped waves dash and roar all day,
Bringing and tossing foam so white-
S- Really it is a lovely sight.

S Do you know what the Fairies tell,
,r i Makes the white foam on every swell?
Mermaids are washing clothes to-day,
And that's FAIRY SOAP suds," they say.
S\In the caves of the deep blue sea,
SDwell the mermaid-, happy and Iree;
Their wash-tub is a big .ea-shell.
(At least that's what the Faiies tell \
S They hang their clothes on a cea-weed rnpe. '
And always nas.h thtin with FAIRY SOAP;
The suds float up from the deep -ea-caves,
S And that's the foam on top of the waves

TWO WHITE KITTENS










Two .is


,- ._ ,SSWhite.

Kittens. t


S'WO little kittens were they, were they,
Two snow white kittens at play;
Fell in the dirt,
Were not much hurt,
But oh, what sad kittens were they, were they,
Oh, my what sad kittens were they !
Their lovely fur was black as ink,
All gone their whiteness fair;
Their mother really couldn't think,
They were HER pretty pair.
But in the kitchen was a cake,
Of FAIRY SOAP so white,
So mother kitty rubbed it in,
And washed them clean and bright.
Then happy kittens were they, were they,
Two merry kittens at play;
White as before,
Playful once more,
What neat little, sweet little kittens were they,
What glad little kittens were they !

TOM'S BATH.
TOM'S BATH

'~~--`


Tom's Bath.

... OM didn't use to like his bath,
1 His mother hurt him so;
S-She had to scrub so very hard,
STo get him clean, you know;
So when it came to Saturday,
And he got in the tub,
S She used to take a great big brush,
S And scrub, and scrub, and scrub.

But now Tom says it's different,
SHis bath is just like play,
{ When mother calls, "It's bath time, Tom,"
i He doesn't run away;
I \ For now she doesn't scrub at all,
But rubs so soft and light-
She uses FAIRBANK'S FAIRY SOAP,
For bathing a delight.


























































FAIRY LINEN

.. _- -.-_" .- -







'd' '.--'-












That's the Fairies' linen,
Spreading out to bleach,
Stretched on every grass blade,
Far as they can reach.
Busy little Fairies
Wash and work at night;
Did you ever wonder
i ,How they get it white ?
If you'd go and ask them,
SThey would surely say,
SFAIRBANK'S FAIRY SOAP, sir,
Makes it white that way."

A SONG OF SLEEPYLAM D








.-


i, A Song of Sleepyland.
SC' ING a song of Sleepyland!
S When the clock strikes eight,
Every little boy and girl
Should to bed go straight.
Sing a song of Sleepyland!
SWash dirty face and hands
With FAIRY SOAP, whose purity
~ Excels all other brands.
Sing a song of Sleepyland !
Brush the curly head,
Then the little tired feet
Climb upstairs to bed.
Sing a song of Sleepyland !
Pillows soft and white,
And the tiny hands and feet
Tucked in snug and tight.
Sing a song of Sleepyland !
Fairy tales by mother,
All aboard for Sleepyland,
The car won't hold another.
Sing a song of Sleepyland!
Be thy slumber light,
Angels guard and keep thee-
Mother's kiss-Good night!

CINDERELLA'S WEDDING


Cinderella's Wedding.

Cinderella is coming to town,
Dressed in a beautiful silken gown;
Plumes and feathers, laces and pearls,
Looking the loveliest of girls !


Clear the way for her coach-and-five !
Coachman Robin knows how to drive:
Give a cheer for her footmen bold,
Wearing a livery of gold !

Miles away in Fairyland Town,
The folks are hurrying up and down ;
Putting up flags and arches grand,
Making things gay in Fairyland !


They'll blow the trumpets and beat the
drums,
To give her a welcotie when she comes;
For Cinderella is on her way,
And this is Prince Charming's wedding-
day.

Cinderella's the bride so sweet:
Slippers of glass on her dainty feet.
Hurry, hurry, merrily ride,
The Prince is waiting for his bride !


When Cinderella arrives in town,
They'll place on her curly head a crown;
The Prince will stoop to kiss her hand,
And she'll be the Queen of Fairyladndl

She will get presents rich and rare,
And jewels of every kind to wear;
But what will give her more delight,
Is a cake of FAIRY SOAP, so white.

The Fairy Girl.
SERE'S a dainty Fairy girl,
Neat and clean from foot to curl,
Whitest frills of snowy lace,
Soft white hands and winsome face.
In her muslin dress so white,
She's a picture of delight!
No more lovely sight than this
Dainty happy little miss.
She will tell you if you call,
FAIRY SOAP has done it all,
Washed her dress and cleaned her lace,
Made white hands and beaming face.



























































THE. FA I RY GIRL



























Just like silken floss;
Never was a girl more fair,.
When her curls do toss.
Long and silky, soft and fine,
And so very thick,
Sure, we think the lovely shine,
Is some Fairy trick.
Goldenlocks, when this we say,
Laughs and shakes her head;
And, to give the trick away,
This is what she said:
If you want soft, silky hair,
(And you do, I hope,)
Just follow these directions,
Wash with FAIRY SOAP.'"

Little .

.t a Mistres




LITTLE Mistress Housewife,
I would like to know,
Why your dainty china
Always glistens so ?
Do you rub it THIS way ?
Do you scrub it so ?
Why is it so brilliant,
Every piece aglow ?
Smiling Mistress Housewife,
Shook her little head ;
Can't you guess my secret ?"
Then she sweetly said:


;s .A .


Housewife.

" In my hand 1 hold it,
Here's my magic fine;
FAIRBANK'S FAIRY SOAP, sir,
Makes my china shine!"





















































LITTLE MISTRESS HOUSEWIFE








Two Foolish Chickens.

T WO foolish little chickens,
Had a brother Duck,
And they tried like him to swim-
Oh! such dreadful luck!
In the water deep they sank,
And each little chick
Would have been most surely drowned,
But for rescue quick.
Little Mary, washing clothes,
Saw their sorry plight,
And with ready wit she soon
Set their trouble right.
Took her cake of FAIRY SOAP,
(Well she knew wouldd float,)
Pushed it out from shore to them,
For a little boat.
On the soap they crept and clung,
-And soon, safe and sound,
S\ 7 They were landed by its aid,
\ Once more on dry ground.

TWO FOOLISH CHICKENS









\ The Wise Old Fairy.
f ('O NCE on a time a Fairy old,
Little and wise and good,
Lived alone in a house of gold,
f Close by a great big wood.
She spun the loveliest fairy cloth,
And bleached it every night,
All but one piece, that try her best
She could not get SNOW white.
So every magic art she tried,
SWithin her power and scope,
With poor success until she used
A cake of FAIRY SOAP.
SThen this piece of fairy cloth,
Over which she worried so,
Was quickly cleaned by FAIRY SOAP,
Until it looked like snow.
