On the way home Lucy found a silver sixpence! Wasn't that good luck! And when she got home, there was her Uncle Jim, her very favourite uncle, come to take her out to tea with him in his motor-car. "Oh, Uncle Jim! This is all because of my four-leaved clover! " said Lucy happily. " Where are we going? "
" We're going to the town to have tea and ice-creams," said Uncle Jim. " And then we're going to an old man I know who has a dear little puppy for sale, and It was a little black spaniel.              I want to buy it for a nice little
girl called Lucy." " Uncle! " squealed Lucy, who wanted a puppy more than anything else in the world. " Uncle! You dear kind uncle! "
Well, she had a lovely tea and two ice-creams, and then they went to fetch the puppy. It was a little black spaniel, with long, drooping ears, the dearest Httle thing Lucy had ever seen.
" What will you call her? " asked Uncle Jim as they drove back in his car, with Lucy cuddHng the puppy, feeHng very sleepy and very happy.
Lucy had a name for her, of course. Can you guess what it was? It was Clover! Lucy thought it would be such a lucky name.
Didn't she have a lot of luck? Do you want some as well? Well, just hunt about for a four-leaved clover and maybe you'll have some too.
