S-T I home poor Cinderella was
made very miserable by her
envious step-sisters, who at last
Persuaded their mother to send
her down to the kitchen.
S"The stupid thing ought
I not to sit in the parlour
with us," they said. Those
who eat ought to work. Send
r her down into the kitchen to
They even took away from
her the clothes that had been
P. given her by her mother, and,
in their place, she was made
to wear an .!, old frock and
a pair of big, clumsy shoes.
Look at our fine princess now," cried her
step-sisters, as they drove her down into the kitchen. See how she is dressed! "
The more agreeable Cinderella was the more ill-natured her step-mother became, and the
worse the little girl's step-sisters treated her, so that it seemed as if nothing she could do
would ever please them. While she was down in the kitchen her step-sisters went into society,
and used to spend most of their time in buying dresses and pretty toys. Cinderella was hardly
allowed to look at their fine things, and, if she put out her hand to touch them, the sisters
would at once cry out-
Take your hands away. You will soil the things with your dirty fingers."
Poor little girl She was often made very sad by her step-mother's harsh treatment; and as
she used to eat her meals sorrowfully by herself, she would think of her dear mother who had
died, and remember how kind and good she had been to her.
N the morning she had to rise early to draw- water, : ,
to light the fires, to cook, and to wash, arnd
during the day she had to remain in the
dark, dingy kitchen, with the maids for
her only companions. IHer cruel step-
mother treated the servants with
greater kindness than she did .
Cinderella, who was set to do the
worst of the work, such as washing
the dishes, scrubbing stairs, and
polishing the floors in the l: .,
rooms of the house. At night,
when her step-sisters retired to ",
their fine bedrooms, which were
beautifully furnished, and had large
mirrors on the walls, so that the sisters coui a.Ji:irt t?-selvies i'. lth.,: i.:di
had to sleep in a wretched garret with bare a i v uni :
feather beds of her step-sisters. There she wouid often lie ,aak a., is:. o *: -:
noises made by the rats and mice as they ran about the wretcihe a.:t:c cri
another in their play, aind sometimes, when the night was stormy, the whid would howC, so
dismally in the chimney ard around the window that Cinderella had to put her hands to her
ears to stop out the dreadful din. During the day her step-sisters did all they could to ake
her miserable, pushing her away when they met her, and speaking rudely to her. iHo1wever,
Cinderella bore everything with patience, for she did not like to complain to her father, who
loved his wife so much that he hardly thought :he could do anything that was not right.

NOW the King of the
country decided to
give a grand ball, which was to
last for three nights, and to which
all the beautiful young ladies in the land
should be invited, so that the young
prince might choose a wife. When the
step-sisters heard the news they were
delighted, and they at once ran off for
Cinderella," they cried, come here t
at once, and dress our hair, and trim our -
shoes with gold buckles. We are going ,
to a ball at the King's palace."
Cinderella might, if she had liked, have dressed their hair awry in spite at their bad
treatment of her ; but she was too good-natured to do such a thing, and so she took
the greatest care, and did their hair so well that they looked prettier than they had ever done
before. After she had performed this task, she went to her step-mother and begged her to let
her go with her sisters to the ball; for she was fond of dancing, and had never been to a
H" How could you go to a ball ?" cried the step-mother. See how dirty you are, covered all
over with ashes i Besides, you have no dress nor drawing-room shoes."
Cinderella, however, still begged to be allowed to go, and at length, her step-mother said--
i; ,l yi minay go back to the kitchei, have just thrown a dish of peas among the ashes.
ii you ci:; pick thm '.i out 'and bring thlimn to m! in two hours, I will let you go."
CINDERELLA ran off into the
garden, and when she got
there she sang these words---
Little tame r:. ..-,
If you don't leii meI
What sh'al I do ?
Come, pick up ph c aec
You birds of the skly ;
For i kn,)w i can t do i-
In time, though I try.
In a minute or so tw. prctt I
doves flew into the kitchen through iie
window, and they were soon followed by
several other birds, who, twittering and nodding
their heads at Cinderella, set to work to pick thie eas out of the ashes. F They
picked, picked, picd, ak d -it'in an hour every pea .Fas got from : the r:. :

However, Cinderelia begged so hard to be allowed to go that her step-.other bica.;ic
angry, and at last, throwing two pans full of peas amungst the ashes, she sad she O A
Ci, i !i go if she picked up all the peas in two hours.
"She can never do that in the time," said the cruel woman to herself.
Away ran Cinderella into the garden again to call the birds to help her. They came v
quickly, and as they worked hard, every pea was picked up before an hour was C:.-.
Cinderella carried the peas to her step-mother.
"Be off to your place in the kitchen," she said, when she saw the peas. and don't "y v-,r,.

i CINDERELLA went into the garden,
f and looked about to find the
S' largest pumpkin that there was, and
Sat length she discovered one so large
that it was too big for her to carry,
.a so she rolled it along like a barrel
S.- until she got it into the kitchen.
-40hB r When the fairy saw it she scooped
South the inside of the pumpkin so as
to leave nothing but the rind. Then
she touched the shell with her wand,
and it at once became a beautiful golden
carriage. The next thing she did was to tell
Cinderella to go into the pantry for the
mouse-trap, in which she would find six
'* '-'s -k ,1C r -- little live mice. Cinderella went as she was
Sbid, and found the trap there with six bright-eyed
little mice in it, as the fairy had said she would. Bringing
the trap to the fairy, she opened the door of it very gently,
Sso that only one mouse could come out at a time, and as each
mouse came forth the old woman touched it with her wand, and it became
at once a fine dapple-grey carriage horse, with a magnificent tail and mane tied up with light
Now, my dear god-child," said the fairy, you have here a coach and horses much finer
than those of your sisters, and handsomer than any that will be seen at the King's palace.
Now we want a postillion and a coachman fit to drive such a beautiful carriage, so run to
the stable and bring me the rat-trap that is there."

.INI ERi, LLA was fulll ot joy, and did not lose a
moment in bringing the rat-trap, in which she found
tw o large, friMky rats. The fairy toc, k them out of
the trap, and, touching them with her wand, one was

1 / |li the people stopped their conversation, the musicians
I 1. r ot their music, and the dancers stood still, so astonished
v ere they by the beauty of the strange lady, and a
murmur went round the room-
How beautiful she is! "
Even the King, old as he was, whispered to the
Queen that the stranger was the most beautiful
S l woman he had ever seen, only excepting the
Queen herself, and the ladies noted the
Stranger's magnificent dress, and wondered
whether they could get others like it for the
next night's ball. The prince, having con-
ducted Cinderella to a seat, requested the pleasure
Sor." eitand for the next dance. When the time came, he
was ..1 l *. to discover that Cinderella was the best dancer in the room, and so pleased was
he, that, at the supper which followed, he could not eat a morsel, not being able to turn his
eyes away from her. Meanwhile, Cinderella's step-sisters sat beside her at the table, not
':'. her in her fine dress, and they were delighted to receive some of the sweets and
oranges that she had received from the prince.

the company and left the palace.
SaaWhen she reached home she found
Sheer god-mother still there, and,
having thanked her for the pleasure
she had had, asked her if she might
return to the ball the next night, as the prince had begged her to do. The
fairy said she might. Soon afterwards the step-sisters came home, and Cinderella
went to the door, yawning and rubbing her eyes as though tired with sitting up
for them, and said-
Dear me, how late you are !"
If you had been to the ball you would not think it late," replied the sisters. "There
was such a beautiful princess there, and she was so kind to us, and even gave us oranges
Cinderella asked who the princess was, but the sisters replied that no one knew her name,
and that the prince had been asking every one about her. The next evening the sisters went
to the ball again, and Cinderella followed in her carriage, in a new dress that the fairy
provided, more beautiful even than the former one. The prince, who had been watching
for her arrival, was soon at her side, and he whispered so many nice things that she quite
forgot all about what her god-mother had said would happen at twelve o'clock. So they sat
together chatting until the clock began to strike twelve, when Cinderella started to her feet
and fled like a startled fawn from the room. In such a hurry was she that she left one of
the glass slippers behind her, which the prince, who picked it up, put away very carefully
amongst his treasures.
