How to preserve children

1 large grassy field
1 bushel fresh wildflowers
1/2 dozen children
3 or 4 small dogs
a pinch of brook
some small pebbles

Mix the children and dogs well together and put them in the field, stirring constantly. Pour the brook over the pebbles, sprinkle the field with flowers; spread all over a deep blue sky and bake in a hot sun. When thoroughly browned, remove and set to cool in a bathtub.
