The little girl ran into the kitchen
to find shelter and hid 'herself
behind the stove; the black man
followed her.

The poor child was wounded, -
but her fright was so great, that she
did not feel it, but hid behind a
tree in the garden.


In looking up, she saw the black
man on the top of the house. Mary
terrified, escaped into the street.


The father, and the mother, of
the little girl searched for her

The elder ones tried their skill on
the crossbow, and others measured
their strength by striking on the head
of a Turkish doll.


Several carriages were to be seen;
they belonged to the invited guests of
the lord of the manor.


The feast was very animated. All at
once cries for help came from Ihe
river. Everyone ran towards it.


Whilst a crowd of idle gapers
looked at the drowning child, Jacques
the shepherd's son, plunged into the
river.


He arrived just as the little girl had
sunk. Jacques dived and was fortunate
enough to find her and to bring her
ashore.

conscious, had saved her.


They compelled Jacques to sit in the
place of honour at the side of the little
grl, and everyone praised the child
for his courage.


The little boy found himself very
uneasy amongst those grand people;
he was very happy to see his father
and mother enter the room.


The parents of the little girl spoke
to those of Jacques. To whom they
gave a sum of money which put them
beyond the reach of want.


The next day a splendid carriage
occupied by the parents and their little
girl, stopped before the house of the
shepherd.


As soon as he arrived the son of
the shepherd was dressed like a gen-

seals and a golden chain .


Jacques loved to work; he learnt
all that a young man should know. At
the age of twenty, the shepherd's son
was an officer in the Hussars.


The young officer came to see his
parents who still lived in their cottage
in the village. All the people in the
rounlry paid honour to Jacques.


Five )ears afterwards, the shep
herd's son was Captain and led to the
altar the little girl whom he had
sated; such was the recompense of
the courageous boy.

disobedience.

Paul was obliged to walk through
the streets with thii baggage; the
pasiers-hy understood the punishment

crowd.


The disobedient little boy received a
dozen boxes-on-the-ears, and he retur-

This was a rough lesson, but the
little boy was not cured; a few days
after he stealthily crept into the hot-

THE UNCOMFORTABLE NEIGHBOURS


A painter had for his neighbour a musician One day the painter being unable to endure
who from morning till night, worked away the noise any longer, tapped at the wall
at his violoncello with all his might, and with between them, to induce hin to modify his
the force, and the passion, of an enthusiastic musical ardour.
artist.


The musician was so engrossed in his
chromatic scales, that he did not notice the
telegraphic message of his neighbour. The
more the one knocked, the more the other
strummed !


The exasperated painter at last became so
violent, that his blows made a hole through
the thin partition. The musician observed
nothing, but continued his noisy exeercice.


Through the opening, the painter was able
to'reach the violoncello, an in the absence
of his neighbour, he stulfed it with rags.


Once more the painter stuffed it with rags,
and with fresh outbursts of grief, the mu i-
cian re-examined his instrument.


The violoncellist overcome with grief,
that his instrument produced only dull, lifeless,
unmusical, sounds, examined it carefully to
find out the cause, but could discover no-
thing


.This time, he discovered the mystery, also
the hole in the wall, putting his head through
the gap he saw the painter in his favourite
position.


He look it away to be repaired, and for a
whole week his neighbour was able to enjoy
himself without disturbance, in his favourite
honrontal position.


I- -- _
The musician in his turn, profited by the
absence of his neighbour, and with a long
broom, disfigured the picture which he found
on the painter's easel.


But alas! one day his dream was broken,
by the strains of the violoncello, that had
regained its primitive sonorousness.


When he discovered this terrible revenge,
the painter grew purple with rage, and sprang
through the gap into his neighbour's room.


The musician made a banier of his ins
ment, the painter in his violent wrath m
a dash at him, and half disappeared in
violoncello.

.Angela found the poor mother of
the little beggars, lying on a rough
bed of straw. The little girl conforted
the invalid and gave her purse to her.


The purse had not much in it, and
when Angela returned home she ran-
sacked all her drawers to find more
money but without success.

With her treasure, Angela bought
linen, a mattress, and provisions of all
kinds; these she sent to the house of
the poor woman.


The young girl did. not like to ask Angela would have preferred to bave

The children ran in front of Angela
and kidsed her hands, the widow sit-
ting at the window saluted her with a
tender smile.


Angela saw in i'Te jewel-box the
address of the jeweller, she thought
that he would not refuse to buy the
necklace of her, and she consulted her
nurse on the subject.


After the departure of Angela her
father, without saying who he was,ques-
tioned the poor woman, who described
Angela as being sweet, good and cha-
ritable and related her kind actions.


Angela in company with her nurse
went to the jewellers and made her
request to him, he was much astonished,
but granted her wish and gave her
money for the necklace.


Angela was going to a ball with her
mother; her father said to her. '* You
have forgotten your necklace ", and at
the same moment he placed it round
her neck.

Angela accused her nurse of having
betrayed her secret, who denied having
done so; the young girl wondered how
her necklace had been replaced.


What was Angela's surprise to see.

donkeys by their bridles, put them into
the stables and give them hay!


But her astonishment was still grea-

the inn, the poor widow, who came
forward to greet the travellers with
eager welcome.

Angela seeing that her secret was
