4. Tie up the Dumplings.

The position taken up is the same as in No. 3, but the pairs with their hands clasped stand separately, and one pair repeats —

"One in a bush, two in a bush, Please, young ladies, come into my house."

The couple invited pass in below the arms of the inviters, and then all four dance, singing—

"Tie up the dumplings, tie up the dumplings, Tie up the dumplings, one, two, three."

R. C. Maclagan. {To be continued.)
