THE LITTLE MAID
Anna Maria Wells
When I was a little maid,
I waited on myself;
I washed my mother's teacups,
And set them on the shelf.
I had a little garden
Most beautiful to see;
I wished that I had somebody
To play in it with me.
Nurse was in mamma's room;
I knew her by the cap;
She held a lovely baby boy
Asleep upon her lap.
As soon as he could learn to walk,
I led him by my side---
My brother and my playfellow---
Until the day he died!
Now I am an old maid,
I wait upon myself;
I only wipe one teacup,
And set it on the shelf.
Have you ever noticed a furry blackish, greyish
or greenish substance covering bread that has
been left lying in warm, moist places for a very
long time? This substance is called "mould"
which belongs to a group of living things
How does mould come to "grow" on your
bread? "Spores," the microscopic reproductive
bodies of the mould, float around in the at-
mosphere until they find an appropriate place
to land. Under the right conditions -- adequate
warmth and moisture -- these spores begin to
grow and multiply very quickly sometimes
covering the entire surface of the substance
they land on.
Each spore sends out two "branches," one
penetrates the substance and searches for
food and moisture while the other grows up-
wards and produces more spores.
Moulds also grow on cheese, jams, fruits,
meats, vegetables and even on old shoes,
clothing and books. Some moulds are also
"cultivated" in laboratories by scientist to be
used as medicines or food additives. Penicillin,
