TFe Wolf irGr'Gandmother's Bed.

Little Red Riding Hood

ONCE upon a time, in a deep forest, lived a wood-cutter and
his wife, with their little daughter. She was called "Little
Red Riding Hood" from a scarlet hood and cape she wore.
One day, her mother called her from her play to take a roll of
fresh butter and two fresh eggs to
't her Granny who lived about a mile
off through the wood.
When Little Red Riding Hood
I had gone about half way, she met
a big wolf trotting comfortably
along the same path.
"W/, "here are you going, my
sweet little lass?" said the wolf
S"I am going to my Granny's
S with some fresh butter and eggs,
./ sir," Little Red Riding Hood re-
l plie "That's very nice," said the
5 wicked old wolf. "I haven't seen
your Granny for some time, I
believe I'll call on her myself. You
go one way and I'll go another, and we'll see who will get there
first. Good-bye!" Then he trotted off on another path.
It was quite late when Little Red Riding Hood arrived at
Granny's. When she knocked a gruff voice told her to come in.
When she entered there was the wolf in her Grandma's bed with
night-cap and spectacles on just like Grandma. This deceived Little
Red Riding Hood, so she went up to the bed and began to talk to
her Grandma, as she thought. She wondered at the great hairy
arms, the great ears, the yellow eyes and big, sharp teeth.
Just as the wolf was about to seize the little girl and eat her,
two woodmen with axes rushed in and killed the wolf and saved
Little Red Riding hood.

T HERE was once a little girl who had a noble father and sweet
mother. One sad day the mother died. Her father fearing
his little daughter might be lonely, married a widow with
two daughters. But these daughters were haughty and vain and
made the little girl wait upon them, do all the kitchen work and
worst of all, called her "Cinderella" for they said she was only good
enough to sit in the ashes.
One night after she had helped her sisters dress for the Prince's
grand ball, she sat -%
alone quietly crying, I .-
by the kitchen hearth. I'
"'Why do you cry?" '' "
said a tiny voice. i' ( -
She looked up and

saw the figure of her fairy
I. p Godmother. Cinderella
tried to dry her eyes and
told her she wanted to go
li to the ball.
"If that is all, stop crying" said the fairy Godmother. "Go bring
me a pumpkin." Cinderella brought the finest she could find. With
the touch of her wand, the fairy God mother turned it into a beauti-
ful golden coach for which were provided a dignified coachman and
six elegant footmen. Cinderella was clothed in a white satin gown
trimmed with diamonds and pearls. She wore beautiful glass slippers.
The delighted Cinderella stepped into the coach with an
affectionate farewell to her Godmother who said : "Have a good
time, child, but remember to return before midnight, for at twelve

o'clock you will be Cinderella in her rags again." Cinderella
promised to obey her, drove off and in a few moments was in the ball
room. Everyone thought her a foreign Princess-she had such a
sweet face and pretty manners. The Prince would dance with no
one else, and even her haughty sisters were pleased when she noticed
them. She did not forget to leave before twelve and her Godmother
S t heard her story and
... [* *1 ^'^^ promised Cinderella she
i l might go the next night
,_4 and then vanished.
S The next night, every-
Sthing happened as before.
I i ,i, l The Prince was more eager
Than ever, and she forgot
Small about the time till the
clock struck twelve. She
sprang quickly away and
\ ran down stairs, leaving one
of her glass slippers. The
'Prince followed her, picked
Sup the slipper, but only saw
~ a little ragged girl running
S' ll away in the darkness.
The next morning a
wonderful procession passed through the town at the head of which
rode the Prince. Behind him came a page bearing one little glass
slipper. A herald blew a trumpet blast and read a proclamation,
saying: "Any lady in the land who can fit this slipper on her foot
and produce another to match it should wed the Prince."
Of course the haughty sisters tried to get it on, but could not
get even half of a foot into it. Then Cinderella slyly asked if she
might try. They all laughed, but the Prince said : "Let her try."
Cinderella slipped it on with perfect ease and brought the other
one out of her pocket and put it on too. At the touch of the magic
slipper, her rags turned into the beautiful gown of the night before
and the Prince immediately recognized his lovely Princess. He
took her home with him and married her that same day.

Jack, the Giant Killer
N the reign of the famous King A"thur, there lived in Cornwall,
a lad named Jack, a very strong, brave boy. These were the
days of giants and fairies and conjurers. One of the very lar-
gest of the giants _____________
lived in a mountain
near Jack's home. He .n
came down fre- ,
quently, robbed and -
terrified everybody
and sometimes car- -- "
ried the poor villagers -
away to his castle.
Jack resolved to. N, ; r n
get rid of him, so one
winter's night he went Ml
to the giant's castle. .
Near the door he dug
a large pit and
covered it with long sticks and strewed leaves and moss over it.
Then he blew a blast of his horn, that brought the giant, roaring,
from his castle. He cried: You saucy villain, you'll pay for this,"
and started after the nimble Jack. But his first step was over the
concealed pit; he went through with a crash, and Jack finished him
with a blow of his pick axe. Jack then returned to receive the
cheers of the villagers, who presented him with a sword and belt
bearing the inscription :-
"This is the gallant Cornishman
Who slew the giant Cormoran."
Then they named him "Jack, the Giant Killer."
Another giant named Blunderbore, resolved to be revenged on
Jack. One day Jack fell asleep in the wood and Blunderbore caught
him, dragged him home and put him in a cell half filled with skulls
and bones. Then Blunderbore went off to find his brother, so they
might make a good meal off Jack.

Jack watched them approach through the window. When they
.iere exactly under it, Jack choked them until they were blue in the
face, then slid down the rope and killed them both.
One day Jack lost his way in the woods. He came to a house
owned by a Welsh giant with three
'heads. This giant was very polite
and asked Jack to stay all night.
'But Jack was suspicious and put a
^r, log of wood in the bed and hid in
0 the cupboard. Sure enough, in the
S/ night, the giant came in with his
great club and beat the bed in the
C place where Jack would have lain.
In the morning Jack walked in to
breakfast, much to the giant's amaze-
Sment. Jack, by another trick, killed
this giant too while he was eating.
Jack's exploits had now made him so
__ r very famous, that King Arthur
knighted him. One day as the Court
were holding festivities in a
Knight's castle, news came of a
terrible giant approaching. Jack
begged them not be frightened
and said he would take care
of him. Jack had some man
saw the draw bridge half way
through, then went out to meet
the giant, who was now ap-
proaching, roaring terribly. Jack ;'
led him gaily around the castle i
making such game of him that .,
the giant was mad with rage. :
Then Jack darted swiftly across --
the draw-bridge and the giant,
following at his heels, broke
through the bridge. As he
floundered around in the moat :-
Jack with one blow of his sword
cut off his head and that rid the ., "
)untry of the last giant. .

castle door, the kind hearted wife of the giant asked him to come
in and be her page. While she was talking to him, there came a
terrible knock at the front door. The giantess had just time to pop
Jack into the copper, when in came the giant-roating-"Fee, fi, fo
fum! I smell the blood -- .
of an Englishman; be he
live or be he dead; I'll
grind his bones to make "- _
my bread." -
Nonsense," said his 4 ,
wife, "it's the fat ox I've
cooked for you that you .. I
smell." So the giant
sat down, ate up the fat y
ox and roared for his
money bags. Pretty soon
he went to sleep. Then "-
Jack grabbed the money
bags and slid down the
bean stalk for home. This -
money made Jack's mother quite rich, but he resolved to go up the
beanstalk again.
The giantess did not know Jack this time in his new clothes
and took him in as before. She told him to run and hide, as her
husband would eat him up when he came home. Just then they
heard the giant roaring the same- terrible words.
Jack jumped quickly into the oven as the giant came in. After
the giant had eaten and drunk, he roared out-" Wife, bring in the
brown hen! The wife brought in the little brown hen. "Lay,"
said the giant. The hen laid a golden egg. Lay," said the giant
a second and third time and with each command, the hen laid a
golden egg. "That will do," said the giant and went to sleep.
Jack came out, snatched the hen and ran off with her. She cackled,
the giant woke up, but Jack reached the beanstalk and slid down
before the giant could catch him. The giant went down after him,
but Jack took a hatchet, chopped the beanstalk clear through, and it
fell bump, and the giant's brains were knocked out.

Hop 0' My Thumb

ONCE upon a time there lived a poor wood-cutter and his wife
with seven children. They were so poor indeed that food
could not be found for all, so the unhappy parents resolved
to lose their children in the deep forest. The youngest child, who
i was so small he was called "Hop O' My
Thumb," overheard the plan, so he filled his
pockets with pebbles the next time he went
to the forest and scattered them all the way.
When the parents stole away, Hop O' My
Thumb consoled the weeping boys and led
them back home again by the trail of pebbles.
But the wicked father took them again to the
forest and this time prevented Hop O' My
Thumb from getting any pebbles. But he
gave each of the lads a slice of bread. Hop
O' My Thumb crumbled his and threw it on
the path behind. Again the father stole away. Alas when Hop O'
My Thumb tried to go back by the trail of bread, he found the
birds had eaten every crumb and they were alone in the deep forest.
Oh, how frightened they were, but Hop O' My Thumb reminded
them that they had been saved- before and they would be again.
The night came on and they stumbled through the dark till
they spied a light in the dis- -
tance, which came from a
large house on the edge of
the forest. It was the house
of a giant, and his good-
natured wife came to the
door and, taking pity on them,
put them in a large bed
with her seven little daughters, each of which had a gold crown on
her head. Hop O' My Thumb took the crowns and put them on his
brothers and himself instead. In came the giant, felt the crowns

on the boys' heads and went and killed his own daughters. Then
Hop O' My Thumb awoke his brothers and led them away.
He knew the giant would be after him in the magic boots, in
Which he could take seven leagues with one
stride. Very soon the giant arrived near the
cave where the boys were hid and, being
tired, lay down for a short nap. Hop O' My
Thumb slipped out when the giant lay snor-
ing and pulled off the boots very quietly.
Then he put them on himself, for these magic
Sboots would fit any foot. As he was sure the
giant would pursue him when he awoke, he
went off in the opposite direction from which
he had been going.
The giant soon awoke and
finding his boots gone, was
in a great rage and started
furiously to follow Hop O'
My Thumb's tracks. But ,
he was so blinded by rage
that he tried to step over a
precipice that Hop O' My
Thumb had just crossed
and fell to the bottom, dead. g
In the meantime, Hop O'
My Thumb's brothers were
safely on the road home. -
Then Hop O' My Thumb
joined the army and made
such wonderful use of his
seven-leagued boots in car-
rying mri:c-t-es that he re-
ceived a large share of the
booty after the battles, and grew quite rich.
Then he set off to visit his home in the
seven-leagued boots and arrived in a few minutes.

Goldilocks, or the Three

Be .rs

ONCE there lived a little girl with such lovely yellow curls,
that everybody called her "Goldilocks." She was not always
good for she was a mischievous, inquisitive little maid and
was always meddling with things that did not belong to her.
One day she wandered into the wood behind her mother's
house till she --
came to a house _--_ .. ._ -
in which lived ----------
three bears. One '
was Great Big "
Papa Bear, the '--
other was a mid- "
dling sized Main-
ma Bear, and the -
other was a little -
teeny, Tiny Bear. -
Goldilocks thought she would go into the nice little house and
see what was inside. The bears had gone out to spend the morn-
ing in the woods, and left their soup for dinner cooling on the table.
Goldilocks felt hungry and as a spoon was beside each bowl, she
took it up and tasted the biggest bowl. It was too hot with pepper,
so she tried the next size which was too salt, but the little bowl was
just right aid she ate it all up. Then she noticed three chairs
against the wall. She climbed into the biggest, but found it too
hard for comfort. Then she tried the middling sized one. That
was too soft, but the little one was just right, so she sat in it till
the bottom came out. Then she tried their beds and went fast
asleep in the bed of the Tiny Bear. When the bears came home
they saw how their dinners had been tasted, their chairs used and
their beds mussed. They became very angry and chased the little
girl out of the house, but did not catch her. She was much frightened
when she got home.
