Wild Flowers It is a pity that some papers should

have published, as ideal scenes of this Whitsuntide, children bearing armfuls of flowers obviously pulled up almost by the roots. The flowers in question looked like bluebells, which doubtless are the least destructible of flowers owing to their habit of burying their bulbs deep and multiplying the bulbs. On the other hand, the bluebell, one of the most lovely and most sweet of all our wild flowers in its place, is one of the worst in water.
