**s > t' .. ;-.\ -.. .. ...... ; -- '-**iTHE SLEE'PING BEAUTY..,*~ In a far-off country once lived a good,King and his wife, who had everything which -their hearts desired, except a child. At last!one was given to them, and their happinessiseemed complete. A hundred fairies were:invited to the christening feast; but by ill-luck,iobody remembered to invite the Fairy Spite-fil. She came, however, and seeing the mistakehe had made, the king ordered her to betreated with all honour. But Spitef-ul couldnot forgive the fact that she had not been in-vited. The good fairies, as is usual, promisedthe infant riches, beauty, honour, accomplish-ments and a kindly heart. But Spitefulrditained behind, shook her crm:b over thecradle and said that at sixteen years of agethe Princess should pierce her hand with a:spindle and should die of the wound. DBjt:one of the good fairies had hid herself beu:ltthe curtains, and when the wicked old Sp l
THE SLEEPING BEAUTY.;3ihad gone, she came out and said "Eear not,"g:ood King and Queen. I now promise that.: iyour daughter will not die. She will fall intoia deep slumber which must last a hundredyears. But at the end of that time, a king'sson will awaken her with a kiss, and she willithen live a happy and a joyous life." TheKing was in great grief at the prospect of hisbeautiful child having to encounter the mis-fortune of an apparent death, and he oFredthat all the distaff and the spindles :iLthekingdom should at once be destroyed. Thiswas done; but as the Princess approached theage of sixteen, she was not even allowed togo outside the palace. One day, she waswandering about, and seeking out the oddnooks and corners of the palace, for she wasweary of confinement, and sought for any sortof change as a relief. Wandering about, shefound herself on the platform of a turret ofthe palace, and there she saw a very oldwoman, spinning! "That is a very funnyIThe Baldwin LibraryofUnivro~ity
thing," said she to the woman. "Will you letme try what I can do?" The Princess thensat down by the wheel; but alas, the spindleran into her finger, and she fell down as thoughshe were dead! When the King and Queensaw what had befallen her, they wrung theirhands with grief. The good fairy who hadpromised that the death should be changedinto a long sleep, was sent for. When shecame, she ordered that the Princess should bemoved to her own chamber. When this had
brllbeen done, she waved her magic wand, andthen all the living things around the Princessfell into a deep sleep. The attendants slum-bered just as they stood. The favourite dogand cat of the Princess were changed into i-movable figures. The horses in the stableswere like chiselled statues, and there was thesilence of death in the King's palace. Thegood fairy then caused a. thick wood to growall round the building, and, to every appearance,King, Queen, Princess, attendants and palace

King after King filled the vacat'throne, until, o"e hundred years from the daywhen the Princess had her accident, a handsome:Prince was hunting in the neighb3urhood, andcoming to the dark belt of trees which seemedso thick that nobody had ever pierced it, he felta strong desire to know what lay beyond. Hetherefore ordered his attendants to clear the way,and as this was gradually done, to his surprise hediscovered the ancient palace! The gardens wereall overgrown with weeds, ivy clothed the walleof the building, and everythin seemed quiet ajideath. He found the soldiers on guard, likecarved figures, and as he passed the entrance tothe Palace, saw the porters asleep, whilst the cookin the kitchen, the maids in the laundry, and thecourtiers in attendance, seemed all dead, thoughtheir faces bore the hue of health. Their dresseswere of a bygone age, and the dust of a hundredyears lay upon every object, and spiders hadwoven their silken meshes in every corner. Hepassed on and came to the Princess's chamber,and was immediately struck by her beauty. Soardently did he gaze at her, that he could not help

She im-mediately awoke, and said " good Prince, I havedreamed of you and waited for you so long."When she arose, life once more reigned in thePalace, for everything and everybody resumedthe same occupations they were employed in ahundred years back. The King and Queen em-braced their daughter; the attendants went abouttheir business; the cat and dog resumed theirgambols; the horses whinneyed with delight;the cook went on with her cooking; the maidsbusied themselves in the laundry; the guards out-side stood at "attention", and the busy hum of lifeonce more sounded through the Palace.The Prince demanded the hand of the"Sleeping Beauty " in marriage, a request whichlcould not be denied him by her grateful parents,and they ever afterwards lived a happy life, be-loved by the people. When many years hadpassed away, and the King and Queen were dead,the Prince and Princess took their places andruled the country with great wisdom. The fairySpiteful was banished, and it was said that shedied a miserable death, and as she had made nofriends during life, there were none to mournher death.
