A GOOD BTR0KE"0F BUSI- NESS. At "Y e Fancy Fayre" in the metropolis the other day, one of the first things the Princess of Wales purchased was a magnificent bouquet, for which she gave a couple of sovereigns or so. Having inspected the various stalls, she was on the point of departing, when one of the ladies who had been most indefatigable in dij^^ing of her wares, and who Vat evidently a personal friend of Her Royal Highness, stopped her: "What, are you going alrsadv ?" "Yes," said the Princess. Ol, th„svi, do give me your bouquet, and wait a moment and see what I will do with it." Her Royol Highness complied with the request at once, whereupon the pietty vendor—for she was a very beautiful woman—promptly announced to the crowd of male admirers standing around her stall that flowers from the Princess's bouquet were on sale at 10s apiece—" oily a limited number to be disposed of." In less than two minutes 30 gallants had each one in his button-hole, and 30 golden half-sovereigns had been added to the funds of the charity.
