called her child to her and said to her, "My child,
Always be good; bear every thing that happens to
you with patience, and whatever evil and troubles
you may suffer, you will be happy in the end .if you
are so." Then the poor lady died, and her daughter
was full of great grief at the loss of a mother so
good and kind.
The father too was unhappy, but he sought to get.
rid of his sorrow by marrying another wife, and he '
I looked out for some. prudent lady who might be a -
second mother to his child, and a companion to him-
self. His choice fell on a widow lady, of a proud
and tyrannical temper, who had two daughters by a
former marriage, both as haughty and lad-tempered
as their mother. No sooner was the wedding over,
than the step-mother began to show her bad tem-
per. She could not bear her step-daughter's good

Singly compelled the poor girl to do all the drudgery
of the household. It was she who washed the dishes,
and scrubbed down the stairs, and polished the At
floors in my lady's chamber and in those of the two
pert misses, her daughters; and while the latter K
slept on good feather beds in elegant rooms, fur-
nished with full-length looking-glasses, their sister
lay in a wretched garret on an old straw mattress.
Yet the poor thing bore this ill treatment very
Smeekly, and did not dare complain to her father,
who thought so much of his wife that he would only '
have scolded her.
When her work was done, she used to sit in the
chimney-corner amongst the cinders, which had
caused the nickname of Cinderella to be given her

by the family; yet, for all her shabby clothes, Cin- J
L derella was a hundred times prettier than her sisters,
let them be dressed ever so magnificently. j
S The poor little Cinder-wench! this harsh step- i
Smother was a sore trial to her; and how often, as
she sate sadly by herself, did she feel that there is
no mother like our own, the dear parent whose flesh
and blood we are, and who bears all our little cares
and sorrows tenderly as in the apple of her eye !
S It happened that the king's son gave a ball, to t
Which he invited all the nobility; and, as our two
i young ladies made a great figure in the world, they i
were included in the list of invitations. So they
began to be very busy choosing what head-dress
and which gown would be the most becoming.
Here was fresh work for poor Cinderella: for it 1
was she, forsooth, who was to starch and get up

I," said the younger sister, "shall wear my usual
petticoat, but shall set it off with my gold brocaded
train and my circlet of diamonds."

They sent for a clever tire-woman to prepare the YI
Double rows of quilling for their caps, and they
Purchased a quantity of fashionably cut patches.
J They called in Cinderella to take her advice, as she ,'
f had such good taste, and Cinderella not only ad- -
vised them well, but offered to dress their hair,
which they were pleased to accept. While she was i
thus busied, the sisters said to her: "And pray,
Cinderella, would you like to go to the ball ?"
"Nay, you are mocking me," replied the poor girl;
S "it is not for such as I to go to balls." "True
Enoughh" rejoined they; "folks would laugh to see p
S a Cinderella at'a court ball." ll
These two step-sisters were very cruel to Cinder-
ella, and ill-used her much. Ah what sweet friends
are our own born sisters!-there can be no substi- i
tutes like them in the whole wide world.

Sin a feeble, croaking voice. She then hobbled in
and took her seat by the fire.
"Hey! dearee me! what are all these tears, my
child ?" said the old woman. And then Cinderella
told the old woman all her griefs; how her sisters
had gone to the ball, and how she wished to go too,
p but had no clothes, or means to do so.
"But you 'all go, my darling," said the old d
woman, "or I am not Queen of the Faeries or your i-_
Godmother. Dry up your tears like a good god- '
daughter and do as I bid you, and you shall have
clothes and horses finer than any one."
Cinderella had heard her father often talk of her
godmother, and tell her that she was one of those
good faeries who protect children. Her spirits re-
vived, and she wiped away her tears.

Should do with it. Her gotldother took the pump-
kin, and scooped out the inside of it, leaving nothing
but rind; she then struck it with her wand, and it I'
instantly became one of the most elegant gilt car-
riages ever seen.
She next sent Cinderella into the pantry for the
mouse-trap, bidding her bring six little mice alive
which she would find in the trap. Cinderella 'i
hastened to the pantry, and there found the mice as i
the faery had said, which she brought to the old

but a little way and very gently, so that only one
of the mice might go out at a time.
S Cinderella raised the mouse-trap door, and as the
-i" mice came out one by one, the old woman touched
them with her wand, and transformed them into fine
1prancin dlapple-gray carriage horses with long manes
and tails, which were tied up with light-blue ribands.

Cinderella was full of joy, and did not lose a
moment; and soon returned with the trap, in which i
there were two fine large rats. These, too, were

was changed into a smart postilion, and the other j

into a jolly-looking coachman in full finery.

the right side, and close to the wall you will see the

watering-pot standing; look behind it, and there

you will find six lizards, which you must bring to

Cinderella hastened to the garden as she was de- I

her apron and brought to the faery. Another

Touch of the wonderful wand soon converted them

into six spruce footmen in dashing liveries, with

"Give yourself no uneasiness about that, my dear;
the most laborious part of our task is already accom-

Cinderella promised faithfully to attend to every \
thing that the fairy had mentioned; and then,
Quite overjoyed, gave the direction to the footman, i
who bawled out in a loud and commanding tone to '
the coachman, "To the Royal Palace." The coach- I'
Sman touched his prancing horses lightly with his
whip, and swiftly the carriage started off, and in a
I'N short time reached the palace. 'P
The arrival of so splendid an equipage as Cinder- ,.F J
ella's could not fail to attract general notice at the '

( palace gates; and as it drove up to the marble I
Sportico, the servants in great numbers came out to .\
S see it. Information was quickly taken to the king's f
son, that a beautiful young lady, evidently some
princess, was in waiting. His Royal Highness hast-
ened to the door, welcomed Cinderella, and handed
her out of the carriage. He then led her gracefully

into the ball-room, and introduced her to his father,
the king. The moment she appeared, all conver-
sation was hushed, the violins ceased playing, and IJ Pl
Sthe dancing stopped short, so great was the sensa- (
tion produced by the stranger's beauty. A con-
fused murmur of admiration fluttered through the :
' crowd, and each was fain to exclaim, "How surpass- -7
ingly lovely she is !" The ladies were all busy exa-
mining her head-dress and her clothes, in order to -
get similar ones the very next day, if, indeed, they
Should meet with stuffs of such rich patterns, and
find workwomen clever enough to make them up.
What a lovely creature so fair !-so beautiful !-
What a handsome figure!-how elegantly she is
dressed !" Even the prince's father, old as he was,
could not behold her with indifference, but wiped c
his eye-glass and used it very much, and said very \

often to the queen, that he had never seen so sweet
a being.
The king's son handed Cinderella to one of the ")
\ '. r. i
< I/ most distinguished seats on the dais at the top of
the Hall, and begged she would allow him to hand -
Sher some refreshments. Cinderella received them
'fV with great grace. When this was over, the prince
Requested to have the honour of dancing with her.
Cinderella smiled consent; and the delighted prince i;
Immediately led her out to the head of the dance,
just about to commence. The eyes of the whole
company were fixed upon the beautiful pair.
S The trumpets sounded and the music struck up,
and the dance commenced; but if Cinderella's beau-
ty, elegant figure, and the splendor of her dress,
had before drawn the attention of the whole room
the astonishment at her dancing was still greater. (

Gracefulness seemed to play in all her motions; the
airy lightness with which she floated along-as
liVj buoyant as thistle-down-drew forth a general mur-
mur of admiration. The hall rang with the loudest
acclamations of applause, and the company, all in
one voice, pronounced her the most elegant creature .
That had ever been seen. And this was the little
7 girl who had passed a great part of her life in the
kitchen, and had always been called a "Cinder-
V wench."
When the dance was ended, a magnificent feast
was served up, consisting of all delicacies: so much r
was the young prince engaged with Cinderella, that
he did not eat one morsel of the supper.
Cinderella drew near her sisters, and frequently
spoke to them; and in her goodness of heart she
offered them the delicacies which she had received ,

from the prince: but they did not know she was
their sister.
IulW When Cinderella heard the clock strike three-
Squarters past eleven, she made a low courtesy to the
Whole assembly and retired in haste.


S You see how fortune befriends the good-hearted,
K and even out of such unpromising material as a
pumpkin and mice, can make a coach and six, with
which to honor her worthy favorite. So Cinderella
goes to the ball; but to teach her to be diligent and
Faithful in her engagements, her faery godmother .7
enjoins upon her that she return home at twelve.

On reaching home, she found her godmother; and -
after thanking her for the treat she had enjoyed, '
) she ventured to express a wish to return to the ball
on the following evening, as the prince had request-
Sed her to do.
S She was still relating to her godmother all that
had happened at court, when her two sisters knocked
at the door. Cinderella went and let them in, pre-
tending to yawn and stretch herself, and rub her 4

she had never felt less disposed to sleep in her life.
If you had been to the ball," said one of the sis-

Cinderella could scarcely contain her delight, and
Sinquired the name of the princess. But they re-
Splied that nobody knew her name, and that the ,
king's son was in great trouble about her, and
would give the world to know who she could be.
-/ "Is she, then, so very beautiful ?" said Cinderella,
smiling. Oh, my how I should like to see her !
S Oh, do, my Lady Javotte, lend me the yellow dress
Syou wear every day, that I may go to the ball and
have a peep at this wonderful princess." "A likely
story, indeed!" cried Javotte, tossing her head dis- r
dainfully," that I should lend my clothes to a dirty
Cinderella like you !" ,
Cinderella expected to be refused, and was not
sorry for it, as she would have been puzzled what "

cY begged to have.
On the following evening the sisters again went .
/" n to the court ball, and so did Cinderella, dressed .
even more magnificently than before. The king's ! Sson never left her side, and kept paying her the
most flattering attentions. The young lady was
'_,. nothing loth to listen to him; so it came to pass
that she forgot her godmother's injunctions, and, ;
indeed, lost her reckoning so completely, that be-
fore she deemed it could be eleven o'clock, she was
startled at hearing the first stroke of midnight.
She rose hastily, and flew away like a startled fawn.
The prince attempted to follow her, but she was too
swift for him; only, as she flew she dropped one of
her glass slippers, which he picked up very eagerly.
Cinderella reached home quite out of breath, with-

Cinderella asked them whether they had been well
entertained; and whether the beautiful lady was
there? They replied, that she was; but that she !<
had run away as soon as midnight had struck, and '
so quickly as to drop one of her dainty glass slip- L

They spoke truly enough; for, a few days after- i

carried to the two sisters, who tried with all their
might to force their feet into its delicate proportions,
but with no better success. Cinderella, who was
present, and recognized her slipper, now laughed, K-~

ridiculed such an idea; but the gentleman who was "
appointed to try the slipper, having looked atten-
tively at Cinderella, and perceived how beautiful .
( she was, said that it was but fair she should do so,
as he had orders to try it on every young maiden in
Sthe kingdom. Accordingly, having requested Cin-
derella to sit down, she no sooner put her little foot
to the slipper, than she drew it on, and it fitted
like wax. The sisters were quite amazed; but their
astonishment increased tenfold when Cinderella drew j
the fellow slipper out of her pocket; and put it on.

Her godmother then made her appearance; and,
having touched Cinderella's clothes with her wand,
made them still more magnificent than those she
had previously worn.
S Her two sisters now recognized her for the beau-
tiful stranger they had seen at the ball; and, falling
at her feet, implored her forgiveness for their un- s
worthy treatment, and all the 'insults they had
i heaped upon her head. Cinderella raised them,
saying, as she embraced them, that she not only
' forgave them with all her heart, but wished for
\ their affection. She was then taken to the palace
of the young prince, in whose eyes she appeared
yet more lovely than before, and who married her
shortly after.
Cinderella, who was as good a she was beautiful,
allowed her sisters to lodge in the palace, and gave
