Press ofJOHN WILSON AND SON,SambriBge.

IN a little city there lived a gay Student,who was so tall that he could reach upand take the moon down out of the sky.(4)

And one evening he actually did it;and took the moon with him to his cham-ber, and wiped off the spots with hispocket-handkerchief. This made it sodark now out of doors, that(5)

His Honor the Mayor shook the handleof the town-pump very heartily, and said:"tHa, neighbor, what a cold hand you'vegot!" For he thought he was shakinghands with the tall tax-appraiser.(6)

You must know his Honor the Mayorwas on his way to the Blue Star to takea hand at whist; but opened the wrongdoor, and, looking into the pigsty, said:"Good-evening, dear friends. How is itthat you have not lighted up yet?"(7)

PONow the Student had a chum who wasa Painter. The latter thought: " Ha, see,it must be pitch-dark out-doors! I'll takethe opportunity to go and serenade thedaughter of His Honor the Mayor."(8)

rBut he missed his way in the dark;and, instead of the Mayor's house, hestopped in front of the " Old Women'sHome." There he sang, -"Before thy door I'11 tarry here,Until my darling doth appear."(9)

The Watchman and the Sentinel, hear-ing this, set out to arrest the disturber ofthe peace. But the latter dashed his violinover the head of the Sentinel, and jumpedthrough an open window.(Io)

At this moment, the Night-watch cameup; and, taking the Sentinel for the dis-turber of the peace, arrested him.(II)

Now the Painter went head foremostinto a great pot in which the old womenwere raising a little garden. Upon theirsetting up a great scream, the wholehouse came together and wondered at thestrange plant. (12)

When at last he got on his feet andworked his face out of the pot, they mar-velled at his exceeding beauty, and wantedto keep him with them. But he, when hehad looked round, fled with great con-sternation. ()

Meanwhile the Watchman had dis-covered his error, and come back topunish the true disturber of the peace,and attempted to intercept his retreat. Butthe Painter jammed the flower-pot on himand made off. (14)(14

The Watch in his helpless conditionset up a great cry; the Sentinel, hearingit, ran up and arrested him.(Is)

About this time, the Mayor's daughterthought she would go and escort homeher respected father; and, as it was sodark, she took a lantern with her, but for-got to put in the candle. Now the Painter,not recognizing her, ran her down.(16)

But when he perceived by her weepingthat it was a young damsel, he raised herup and kissed her. At that moment theStudent held the moon out of the win-dow; and when the Painter saw that itwas the Mayor's daughter he had beenkissing, he thought,-" How providen-tial I"(17)

Now when the Student saw that allwas right, he had to have a good, heartylaugh, wrapped the moon up in his hand-kerchief, carried it out of the town gate,and hung it up again. And then themoon had to have a good hearty laughover it too. ( 8)
