FOR

THE BETTER UNDERSTANDING

OF THIS BOOK

THERE IS HERE SUBJOINED A CERTAIN

PREFACE.


VERY DEAR YOUNG READERS,

You will find in this book' (which is quite unlike, and far superior to,

every other book heretofore written) four pages marked "Page 1," then four

pages marked "Page.2," then four pages marked "Page 3," and so on to the

end. You may read any of the pages marked 1, then any one of those

marked 2, then any marked 3, till you come to the conclusion of the story

in page 8.

Now, if you will enquire of your clever :-u.,iii, Miss Girton, who has been

in for mathematics at C.n l.lridlg'. and so kL.uns all about figures, you will

learn that there are no less than sixty-five thousand five hundred and thirty-

six tales in this book about Jack and Jill, not two of which are exactly alike.

6r? S6OIY OF aP(Ri
HIERE were ,once up-
on a time (for all
things, you know,
happened then) a
little boy and a
little girl whose
names were Jack
and Jill. But
S though these were
I, *. their right names,
yet their friends
commonly called thb-m "I J.aTk-a di.l-th-
beanstalk" and Gil--tflwer ;" not that
my Jack was the one who had such a
notable bean-stalk, or that my Jill was
a Glly-flower" and lived on a wall;
but their friends, you know, called them
by these names for short.
Once upon a time," then, Jack and
Jill were a little boy and a. little girl,.
but if they are still alive, I am afraid
they are no longer a little boy and
girl, nor even a girl and boy at all.
For, "once upon a time," alas! is ever'
so long ago, and though men. and
women, when they are grown up, wish
they were little boys and girls again very
often, and had only such thoughts and
such cares as little boys and girls have,
yet "once upon a time "is a cruel sort
of creature, and when he has once gone.
away, he never, never comes back to us.
These little children, then, "Jack-and-

S- ACK and Jill were a little boy and a little girl. Except
S this particular Jill, who is the heroine of my story,

S'reason I think it is
probable that it

not rhyme.
Now, whether this terrible misfortune
happened to our friends before or after the
event which I am going to tell you, I have
not yet been able to find out. One thing,
however, you will be pleased to hear, which
is that, if it had happened, Jack's crown
was mended again and Jill's bruises were
quite healed. I have also been able to

trJE 01Y F JfqlK FIND JiLL.

-:'--:'' S I know very well, my dear young friends, from long
--\ acquaintance with you, how. anxious you all are to learn
some useful knowledge from your story books, I have
1 taken a great deal of pains to find out the full and true
S. : account of my little friends Jack and Jill, who are the
u hero and the heroine
of my story.
Some learned men, then, tell us that Jack
and Jill were very important people indeed,
Jack being no less a person than James II.,
King of England. And they say that "Jack"
is only a mistake for "Jacques," which in
French means "James;" and that the
crown which he broke was not the crown
which we all have on our heads, but the .,
crown of gold which kings only have, and ,'
which, you know, James II. had the mis- '
fortune to lose. You can see him in
his carte-de-visite in the margin, curled"
wig and all, and you will see how terribly KING JMAES II. (FROM A PHOTo.).
unhappy he looked when he heard he was going to lose his golden crown,
for he thought, I fancy, that, if he didn't take care,
he would lose the other crown on his head as well. U --
This is one account of Jack and Jill, but other -
learned men have different opinions concerning -;
them, for learned men are apt to disagree, and
usually prefer to find out something new and'
,'jtin., rather than repeat the same things, how- ""
ever true. So they tell us Jack and Jill had something
to do with the moon, and that their pail of water is -
only the rain, which, you know, the moon looks after. 'N A WINK H espr.
But my Jack and Jill did not live in the moon; on the contrary, they lived

phe efory of ac and t ill.
SF course, you have heard of Jack and Jill; whoever was
there who had not heard of them ? You know (to
be sure you do) all about "Fly away, Jack!" "Fly
away, Jill!" "Come back, Jack!" "Come back, Jill!"
But for all that, my dear young readers (all young
readers are dear to me when they read my books), I
don't believe you ever heard of the story concerning
Jack and Jill which I am going to tell you.
For the Jack and Jill whose interesting adventures
I am going to narrate were by no means composed
of paper, nor did they ever sit on any one's fingers,
nor fly away suddenly and then return. They were simply a little boy and a
little girl. They both had eyes of the merriest colour, hair of the most curling
glossiness, teeth of the most pearly sharpness, cheeks of the most reddy plump-
ness, hands of the most dirty graspiness, and feet of the most climbing danciness.
Anybody could see they were brother and sister, they were so bright and merry
alike, and there were so many points of
resemblance. They both liked apples
very much; they both liked play better
than lessons; they both ran after
butterflies when they saw them; they d
both liked getting bird's-nests when-
ever they could; they both wanted to be
grown-up men and women; they were
both always ready to eat any thing
good; they both cried when they were '
hurt and laughed when they were pleased. /
Who could possibly doubt then, who con- '. I
sidered carefully all these many points
of resemblance between them, that Jack -
and Jill were brother and sister ?
But first I must tell you where our ".'
friends Jack and Jill lived, which was ..

in a beautiful old farm-house, with gable ends to its roofs, and old beams of
black oak in its walls. There were green fields and hedges all about, and there
was also a large wood near the house. And in the fields there were cows red
and white, and there were large pigs that grunted and small pigs that squealed,
and great tramping cart-horses that dragged along the heavy wagons, loaded
with hay when it was
June and with wheat
and barley when it was .
August or September. 1 -
It was very plea- ,.
sant for Jack and Jill ,.
to get up early in the -u
morning in the sum- a p ri
mer and go and see the a c
cows milked, and get a 'an t b -- I
nice cup of milk out of
the pail. Sometimes,
also, they would go and I
see the pigs fed, and i,, ,
then they laughed to
see them, how they
fought and pushed -
each other about to get
at the nasty wash that
was poured into their -- -
troughs. "A BEAUTIFUL OLD FARM-3OUBE.
And then, in the autumn they could go into the orchard and eat the
nice rosy apples t li.tr were falling on the ground, and in the spring and
summer there were plenty of gooseberries and currants
r- ", and raspberries to be eaten in the garden at the back
of the house, so you see how happy they must have
been.
SUT now, I think, it is high time to tell you another thing
:' about these children, and a very important one too, and.
that is what sort of children our friends Jack and Jill were,

in the middle of a great town called London, where the Queen lives. Now, you
would like to hear about the Queen. She, you know, rules over us, and does
what her Prime Minister tells her she ought to do, and this Prime Minister
does what the Parliament tells him to do, and the Parliament does what
we tell them to do,
and we do what the
Queen tells us to do,
and you will learn
when you grow u -
older and wiser
that this arrange-
ment is called the
British Constitution.
Now, in London
there are a great s
many improve-
ments upon country
life. First there is a river there, called the Thames, which is full of mud, and
out of the mud they make butter in London, because they are so much cleverer
than folks are in the country, who only know how to make it out of cream.
There are also fogs in London which turn day into night, which makes an agree-
able change, and the railways go underground, so that you cannot see anything
out of the windows, which prevents your getting dizzy with seeing things whirled
past you. And then When the snow comes down it gets quite black at once,
which prevents it from showing the dirt, and as you walk along there are nice
little black things, called smuts, which settle on the end of your nose, and save
you the trouble of wearing patches on your face as our clever ancestors used to
do. All these advantages, and many others, people have who live in London.
Considering, then, all these delights of London, you will, I am sure, be much sur-
prised to hear that Jack and Jill were actually pleased
when they heard they ahd their father and mother were
to spend some time with an uncle who lived in the
S'country, in an old house which was near a large wood.
,' :OW, in the next place, you will want to be told
Sv what sort of children this Jack and Jill were,
(19)

in a country village. It was a pretty village, with a bright stream running all
down the middle of it; and there were little bridges across the stream, and
shoals of little fishes glancing about near the bridges; and there was a village
church, at one end of the village
street, with an old ivy-decked tower,
which had five bells in it, and only
four of the five were cracked, so
you may think the villagers had a
merry peal or two at Christmas, and
thought no bells in the country I
round were half so good as theirs.
There was a clock, too, in the
tower of the church, and the clock
told the hour whenever it happened .
to be right, which was always exactly .
twice in every twenty-four hours. .
And all down the village street, A CLOCK THAT WAS ALWAYS RIGHT.
on each side, and so placed that the inhabitants could see the clock and
hear the bells, there were pretty
little snug cottages, with roses
trained over the porches, and win-
dows with stone mullions, and paths '-
leading down to the street, and i-
gates with burly figures and happy
faces, looking out -5 hi
inquiringly to see
how the world was
getting on. In fact, t
there never was a .
pleasanter place be-
fore nor since.
S AM sure you will be
wanting to hear (no APPY FACES AT THE COTTAGE GATES.

near the sea-shore in a fishing village. There were great rocks towering up into
the sky from the shingle on the beach, and a broad bay between the cliffs with
a sandy shore, and a little river running down a valley into the sea. And on
each side of the little river were houses, and beside it a little pier ran a little way
out into the blue water
with it. The river came
down between some rocks, --
covered with ferns and .-_4_ -
shrubs, and by it ran a
winding road up into the t ..
country behind, and
through the midst of a
large wild wood.
There were boats, too, -
along the shore, and fish-
ing smacks, with large
reddish-yellow sails, that
sailed out sometimes all
together in the evening into
the far waters, where Jack
and Jill could see them no
longer, and came back in.th,- Li.mUin. with 4"
their .holds quite full of ,:i jir. hiii.-
fishes, and then what an unloading theru
was And then the women came down to buy a few out of the boats before
the rest were packed up in barrels to go away to be eaten in smoky London.
Sometimes Jack and Jill would go along the shore and catch the small fishes
that darted about in the pools left by the tide; some-
times they would play on the sand and build castles,
,which the water came and washed away; and sometimes
S they would go a little way. up the road and wonder
what there was in the wood on the banks of the stream.
II HIS, then, was where Jack and Jill lived, and the
next thing in telling you my tale will be to let you
S know what sort of children Jack and Jill were,

for it always makes a story much more interesting to know what kind of people
they were of whom it tells us.
I am glad, then, to tell you that Jack and Jill were both of them
very good children indeed. They never told stories, except such as were
strictly true, and in this point
differed very much from other
tellers of stories. They never,,
ate so much fruit as to make i
themselves ill; in this point \ il '4
differing much from aldermen.
They never were idle over their
lessons; they never scratched
each other's eyes out; they ..
never pulled out the whole of
each other's hair; they never, in
short, did anything that was .'.'
wrong except on quite special
and exceptional occasions. For--
there are exceptions to every rule, "
you know,
-f.K and so there were with regard to Jack and Jill. Whether
". the occasion of which I am about to tell you was an ex-
'" .ceptional and special occasion or not, I shall leave you to
,judge for yourselves.
-- -.!r- EING, then, such very good children, everyone of course
loved Jack and Jill very much, and especially their father
and mother, who always kissed them good night when they
went to bed, and kissed them good morning, too, when
they came down to breakfast. Every birthday, too, they
had such charming presents given them-toys which would
break to pieces quite easily, which is the chief use of toys,
S',and little books about little boys and girls that were as good
S1'i, as Jack and Jill themselves, or if they were not, who
; -came in due course, like a young gentleman who was
called Don't-care,"." to a bad end." Now, these children went on a certain day

for all the nice story books tell us first of all what sort of children they were
of whom they tell us stories.
I am sorry, then to have to tell you that Jack and Jill were both very
naughty children indeed. There never was any peace with them at home or
abroad. They could never be kept quiet; they fought with each other
and with everyone else; tore out
handfuls of each other's hair, and .
scratched each other's cheeks till the
blood ran down them; then they
screamed with all their might, and -i
Jill ran to tell papa that it was all
Jack's fault, and Jack ran to tell .
mamma it was all Jill's fault. They
-always ate the sugar out of the
sugar basin, and said afterwards they
saw the cat eat it; they put broom-
sticks to upset old Mary, the house-
maid, and each said they saw the "OLDTOZER
other do it; they broke the window
by throwing stones at each other, and then said the little boy in the
lane did it; they teazed old Tozer, the dog, knowing him to be too good-
natured to bite them; they stroked the cat the wrong way; they put stones
in the fire to see them "hop;" they brought in their hats and bonnets full
of chafers, to see them fly about the house into people's eyes and into the
candles; -they put cobbler's wax on the schoolmaster's chair, so that when
he got up the chair got up with him; they stole all the candle ends, and when
everyone supposed them safe in bed, they lit up their room with rows of candles,
and practised how quickly they could blow them
all out in case anyone should come in to see if they
were asleep. Now as, of course, you never did such
S things in all your lives, you will quite agree with me
that they were not very nice children, certainly not so
nice as, I am sure, you are.
*. :? ELL! It so happened that one day -our little
'''-' friends Jack and Jill, such as they were, went off

for it makes a great deal more difference to the happiness of children, whether
they are good or bad, than it does where they live.
There was, then, a great contrast between Jack and Jill; one was a very
good child, the other a very bad one. Of course, it was Jack who was the
bad one and Jill the good one, because when one of two children is naughty,
it is sure to be the boy. This
is only natural, you know, for 0 I .ll
this reason:-that little boys are
made
SOf slugs and snails,
And puppy dogs' tails," -

whereas it is well-known that little
girls are made
"Of sugar and spice,
And all things nice."

Now, the natural result of Jack's
being thus made up was that he
was always in a "'row;" he was often
shut up in a dark room; he was
told the black man would have
him; he was told the fairies would
take him away; he was told the
brownies would carry him off. All
this he was told for this reason,
that his worst fault was telling lies,
and it was reasonably supposed that
the best way to cure him of telling lies ___-..-_
was to tell him a few. But somehow ACK WAS A NAUGHTY BOY.
it did not answer. Jill was just the
opposite to all this. She was always good, never told lies, never cried, never
was put in the corner, never got into a scrape, much less into a row," never
was told the black man would come: in fact, being made of sugar and spice,
was naturally a sweet child."
One day, our acquaintances, Jack and Jill, unlike as they were, went together
(29)

for you know that people who are grown up, and who are, consequently, very
wise, think nothing of the story that is in a book, but only of the characters
of the people in it; at least, they pretend to, and that does just as well.
There was not very much likeness between Jack and Jill, for one was good
and the other bad. Jack (like all other little boys in story books adapted for
the young) was .always a very good
boy indeed. He always ate all the
fat on his plate, or gave it secretly / -
to the dogs under the table; he -
never thought of asking for more '
than six helpings of Christmas pud- '
ding; he was never known to have
eaten more than five hundred goose- .
berries in one day; he never teased i 1'
the great mastiff at the door; and ",,', ,
it is recorded that he never cried for i'-' .'
the moon while in his nurse's arms N l,!llI, I
in the day-time. I",. / I* ''
But Jill was just the exact op-
posite to all this. She must, I am
afraid, have been spoiled, for alli
little girls are good unless they are
spoiled. So she cried for what she .. .
wanted till she got it, having early
in life made the discovery that that .
was the best way to get it; she
asked for as much pudding as / /
she wanted; she ate as many goose-
berries as were good for' her, and JmL WS A NAUGTY Gws L.
more too; she did not like fat, as all good children invariably do; she liked
running about without shoes or stockings; she got into the store-room and
dipped her fingers into the jam; she put frogs into the servants' beds; and in
spite of all these terrible enormities and shocking misdeeds, was never the least
bit afraid that the fairies would carry her off.
One day, these two very unlike children, for once agreeing together, set off

all by themselves, without any leave, into the woods-the wild, 1., i r.ifil wood-
lands that were near where they were living.
They thought they should like to live all by themselves in the wood, and
build a little house and make a farm-yard of their own, and have hedgehogs
for pigs, and weasels for cows, and dormice for dogs, and robins for cocks and
hens, and water-wagtails for
peacocks, and, in short, some-
thing instead of everything ..
else. They intended to make
bread out of hawthorn ber-
ries; "and we can drink -
water out of the stream, you '
know," said Jack, we shall' ::.
not want cider." -' ,
Jill thought it would be '1' '
very nice to be no expense ''il
to mamma, and they went --
into the wood, and Jack
got out his knife and began .
busily to build a house. "It .
will be the house that Jack ', i '
built, you know," he said
to Jill. It so happened,
however, that by the time
evening
was come, JILL WAITED TILL THE HOUSE WAS BUILT.
Jack, though he had worked very hard, had .made very
little progress in building his house; and it did not seem
probable they would be able to sleep there that night at
any rate. "I am afraid it will take a long time to build
a house with a knife," said Jack, with a sigh.
ILL was by this time rather inclined to cry, and thought
they had better go home. It was. getting dark, and they
were beginning to be afraid. But, when they had gone only
a little distance, they found, as they were wandering about,

no saying what you might not find in a wood, and still less what a little boy and
girl might not expect to find there.
But, however this may be-expect what they might, the truth is that they

found nothing in the wood to answer their expecta-
tions-they strolled about, hand in hand, a long time;
ate some berries on the trees, watched the birds and
squirrels, and enjoyed themselves very much.
Jack and Jill, having wandered about all day, and having
found neither palaces, nor fairies, nor wizards, and being
very hungry and finding it grew dark, were frightened,
and would have gone home. But they could not
find their way; and, as they went along, they saw

into the wood all by themselves.
They had heard that there were
gipsies in the wood, who lived in
a tent and cooked by a fire. of
sticks. They thought it would be
much nicer to be gipsies than to
live at home.
"It would be so jolly," said Jack,
"to go about wherever we liked,
to sing songs by the fire, to boil
our kettle hung up on three sticks,
and to catch rabbits and weasels.'
But luckily there were then no
gipsies in the Wiood, for if there
had been they would certainly have SO JOLLY TO BE A GIPSY.
carried off Jack and Jill and made them gipsies, whether they liked it or not,
and it is pretty certain that they would not have really liked it.
So they wandered about all day.. They watched the little birds sitting
near their nests or feeding their young ones; they chased the bright butter-
flies that flitted in and out among the trees, and settled so near their hands, but
darted away just as they thought they had caught them; they watched the
bright little fishes as they skimmed about in the stream that ran down through
the wood, and hid themselves under the overhanging boughs when they caught
sight of Jack and Jill looking at them.
But no gipsies appeared, nor even any old, deserted gipsy fire could they
find; and they began to get very hungry, having come out soon after break-
fast, and finding no food in the wood except last
year's hawthorn berries, and, to say the truth, the
blackbirds and thrushes had eaten nearly all of
them.
T last, the evening began to come on. It grew
darker and darker among the distant trees of
the wood; the bats began to circle around their
heads; they did not know which way to- go, and
were inclined to .cry, when, looking up, they saw

into the great wood, the edge of which was i4117
not far from the house.
What they meant to do in the wood
is more than I can tell you: whether they
wandered there accidentally, or whether they
thought to find something there to please
their parents with when they got home, I
do not know. But it is certain they found
it--for a time, at least-a very pleasant
place. It was delightful to look up at the I.
great trees, stretching out their long arms
and fluttering all their thousands of little
leaves. Then they liked to see the squir-
rels running up the trees, and turning --
round their heads, with sharp, black eyes, WET OFF TO THE WOODS.
to look at them. There was a kingfisher, too, that hovered over the little
stream, and then, darting into it, brought out a poor, little, shining fish in his bill.
And looking at all these interesting things, the time passed pleasantly
enough. They wandered on and on through the wood, sometimes sitting down
to rest at the foot of some great moss-covered tree; sometimes having to crawl
under the tangled bushes; sometimes climbing up into the low trees and
talking over what they had seen.
They never thought of being hungry, though they had started soon
after breakfast. Dinner-time and tea-time went by, and in the midst of the
wonders of the wood they never even thought of
dinner or tea.
^ ^ [ e But still the time went on, and they knew less and
r ( ? less into what part of the wood they had got. At last
._= 'they sat down, having made up their minds to rest and
then go home.
S HE sun was now set and the darkness rapidly coming

silvery among.the trees; and one or two stars could
,-. be seen among the boughs. They started to go home,
." but lost their way. As they went .1..I.. they found

a little robin redbreast sitting on its nest in the boughs of a large tree, whose
branches stretched themselves up in the sky, and whose great roots were
hollowed out at the bottom and had a large space beneath them.
The little robin sat on the edge of its nest, which had five young -ones in it.
It looked down at them compassionately with its bright, bead eyes, putting its
head on one side. It was plain that it wished to help them, and was thinking
what was best. At last, having also considered about rhymes (for robins, as you
know, always talk to us in poetry), it gave them the best advice it could, and this is
What the robin said:-

Tweet; tweet; little boy, pray what are you doing
So far from home in the wood ?
Tweet; tweet; little girl, and where are you going?
You seem in a downcast mood !

" You're both hungry, I guess, but there's not much here
For hungry children to eat;
You would not much care for our sort of cheer,
At least so I think; tweet! tweet!

Should I go and find you a blue-bottle fly,
Or a long, black, hairy spider.; "
Or see if I anywhere can spy ,
I
An acorn cup full of cider ? ,

Far up in the woods a storm is brewing,
And the sun's gone down in the west; ,.' .
I wonder whatever your mother was doing -
To let you come out of your nest. .

"My little chicks I keep safe in-doors, .. .
And I've put them all in their bdds; -
Their cradle rocks as the west wind roars, \
And their little wings shelter their heads. R G IC
ROBIN GAVE ADVICE.

Our house isn't big enough, you see,
Or else we'd take you in too,
So you'd better creep into the old hollow tree;
It has plenty of room for you."

Jack and Jill thought the best thing they could. do was to take this advice
and go home in the morning to their father and mother, so they crept into

a yellowy-reddish squirrel with a long tail, sitting on the bough of an old
hollow tree, cracking nuts with great vigour.
When the squirrel saw them, it began to make a speech.

"I've heard that before," said Jack; "they made me say that on my last

"How can I speak if you interrupt me ? said the squirrel, angrily.
I won't again," said Jack.

himself; "I-I think you're in a-in a fix (it's not

an owl sitting on-the bough of -a great hollow tree, winking at them with all its
might and main.
"Well?" said Jack, [evidently seeing that the owl had something to say;
and this is

THE OWL'S OPINION.
" To-whit, to-whoo-oo-oo--oo-
Pray who are you ?

"WINKING WITH ALL ITS MIGHT.2


"That's very true," said Jack, as the
owl flew away; "but' it's no good to
tell us so now."
"Let us get into the tree," said
Jill; I'm sleepy." So they crept into

which had a

not do better than take the advice of the

the roots of the old tree. When they got inside they were surprised to see
how different it was from what they expected. Instead of being dark, it was all
brilliantly lighted up with a thousand little candles; instead of being empty, it
was full of bright little figures. There were tens of thousands of them; some
were dancing in two or three circles, one within another; some walking about
and conversing; some sitting down. At one end there was a throne, with a
great Turkey carpet
spread under it, and a
canopy over it; and
Jack felt sure that
those who were under
the canopy must be the
King and Queen. -" .. ''.'
The King and Queen I" :.i, .
did not dance. "I won- '
der if they are too grand .
to dance," thought Jill. .. .
It did not appear so,
however, for presently.
their majesties de-
scended from their ,
throne, and conde-
scended to take a noble
lord and a more noble :- --- .-- ri
lady from among the
courtiers as partners;
FULL OF BRIGHT LITTLE F IGIUES."
then all the dancers
stopped and watched the King and Queen, and the noble lord and more noble
lady took great pains not to dance more gracefully than their majesties.
All this time no one had taken any notice of Jack and Jill, but now the
King said, in a royal voice, "Who are you-? We are Jack and Jill, your
majesty," said Jack, who knew how to talk to kings.
We have graciously heard of you," said theking, royally again, and we
are pleased that you have come to see us."
"You are hungry after your travels ?" asked the Queen.
(49)

the hollow tree. And now they saw what they never saw before, and most
likely will-never see again.
For the whole tree was full of queer little figures. Some of them had the
appearance of leaves of different kinds; some of acorns; some of blossoms of
flowers; some were lilies, carnations, tulips, anemones; some leaves of grass,
some daisies, some cowslips, some pansies. But the King and Queen (who sat
under a canopy woven
of blue sky with a
golden sun worked in
it) were roses; the little
princes were wild roses
and the princesses were i -
moss rose-buds. They l,/ l .ii,
were all dancing. .i i'
Jack, much aston- -"
ished, said to the King, '' :''i "
"May I ask, Sire, what ;'
you are?" "Ignorant -'

King, "we are the

plants. Each one of ,, .,
us has the care of -i
some tree or plant, and _
is like that which he
takes care of."
"Indeed," said Jack. .
"Your majesty will, I "WAT THEY NEVER SAW BEFORE."
trust, excuse me, but it is, I presume, your majesty and your servants who
open the buds in the morning, and close them at night."
"It is," said the King, graciously; and when the plants are asleep, we come
here and have supper and dance."
"But. who are you?" asked the Queen.
We are Jack and Jill," replied Jill.
I have heard of you before," said the Queen; are you not hungry ?"

the hollow at the bottom of the tree, and very great indeed was the astonish-
ment of both, as you may imagine, when they found inside the tree what seemed
to be a large open plain, bounded on one side by lofty mountains, which were
really.the sides of the tree.
In the midst of the plain was a great city; great, that is, in the number of its
houses, but small-indeed in reality, since it was only a yard square. There was
a royal palace at one end, with fountains in the gardens, and lofty walls with
towers beside the
gates; there were
'square pyramids, and
palaces built on the
plateaus on the sides
of the mountains, and
i, iJ tall minarets all over
.. the city; and in the
S' distance a temple
,- : with a great ball of
Ii', ,:'. j '--. fire at the top, which
S..' ,,:,ii; i gave light to all the
city, and even the
/ plain and mountains
-as well. Jack aid
"Jill very nearly
knocked down some
... -' ... r of the city as they
.' crept in, but they
saw it just in time,
JILLL LEANED OVER THE ROYAL PALACE."
and Jill leaned over
'the royal palace to look at it. They saw thousands of little men and women in
the city, and even wandering over the plain, and all seemed as busy as possible.
The King and Queen were seated under a canopy before the palace, super-
intending the revels and sometimes dancing with the courtiers. When they saw
Jack and Jill, Who are your greatnesses ?" said the King. "Jack! "Jill "
they replied. "Come and have supper with us?" bellowed the Queen at the
top of her voice. I presume your greatnesses are hungry ?" inquired the King.

the hollow under the tree, where they thought they could safely stay during the
night, but, to their surprise, the whole of it was alive with little beings. They
were like human figures curiously distorted; their heads were very large and
their legs very long, and they were all busy planning something or other. Some
were consulting how to turn the milk in the pans sour; some how to set houses
on fire; some how to make the cows kick over the milk-maids; some .how
to make the apples drop off the trees before they were ripe; some how
to make little girls and boys
eat too much ("I always won-
dered why that was," said
Jack, "till now"); some how
to make boys quarrel with each
other.
The King and Queen, who
sat on a throne, consulted about
affairs of state with their Prime
Minister; but affairs of state
were only how to make other
nations quarrel and encourage
them to go on as long as they
could, or, just when they were
ready to make peace, to set
them quarrelling again, or drag
somebody else into it.
"DID NOT THEY .TUMP?
Presently they all with one
accord began to play leap-frog with each other, and did not they jump?
Right up into the air they went, and the King and Prime Minister jumped
as high as anyone, and those who were most mis-
chievous took care to come down plump on their
1 friends' backs. This was their idea of dancing.
.- ," ITHERTO, not one of the brownies had taken the smallest
notice of Jack and Jill, but now the Prime Minister
i"" said, "How do you do? in a prime-ministerial manner;
I' on which Jack replied, "How do you do, my lord?"
S' "Are you hungry?" asked the Queen, in a hospitable tone.

"Yes, that we are!" said Jack and Jill in one breath.
"But, your majesty," said Jill, sorrowfully, and half inclined to cry, "I am
afraid we should eat all your dinner in a mouthful."
"We don't ask people to dinner that we can't feed," said the King, angrily,


"I'll manage all that."
Whereupon the King
waved a sceptre which he
held in his hand, and pro-
nounced some wonderful
words. Jack and Jill sud-
denly found themselves re-
duced to the same size as the
little figures around them,
still, however, keeping the
same shape and appear-
ance that they had before.
"Sit down," said the
Queen, graciously .
So Jack sat by the
Queen, and Jill by the King.

"FELL FAST ASLEEP."


"Bring forth the banquet!" shouted the Queen, in her most lofty tones, in
order to impress Jack and Jill with a due sense of her dignity and importance.
Instantly a table appeared, though where it came from Jack could not
see! On it were arranged thousands of plates and thousands of dishes, filled with
such eatables as Jack and Jill had never seen before, nor have ever seen since.
They set to work, however, and found everything remarkably good; and the
King and Queen were most polite, offering them the best of all things, and
recommending them the best mixtures of eatables and
"' the best sauces. And now.Jack and Jill, no larger than
;the tiny figures around them, found it easy to get enough.
Then the dancing and games began again, and presently
t Jack and Jill, tired with watching, fell fast asleep.
L i EANWHILE, Jack and Jill's father and mother had begun
to wonder where on earth they were gone to. At first
they were not much frightened, but as the night came
(57 )







-7-
"Very," said Jack, emphatically; very hungry."
"Order up supper, my lord!" said the King, in a somewhat commonplace
manner, to the Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister, bowing to the King, gave directions accordingly. All
the little figures bustled about; tables were brought; and Jack and Jill had the
honour of sitting by the King and Queen under their royal canopy, and eating
at their royal table.
At first they were afraid, so small were
the dishes, that they should not get enough i
to eat, but in this they were mistaken; for,
by some wonderful magic, each mouthful, as
they ate it, seemed in their mouths as large
as if they had'been eating supper at home.
So they had a capital supper, and felt much
refreshed after it.
Then the King, when he saw that they
had eaten enough, said, "My lord, let these
tables be removed;" and the Prime Minister,
bowing again, gave orders accordingly.
When the tables were cleared and :-
taken away, the Queen said, "Shall we ,WONDERNG WHERE THEY WERE
dance again?" and taking Jack's hand, GONE To.
while the King took Jill's, they proceeded into the midst of the circle of
courtiers and renewed the ball. Jack wondered how it was possible to
dance with anyone so small as this king and queen were, but he. did
not find it by any means difficult; and no doubt the ease with which
these royal people danced must be ascribed to the fact that they were really
a king and queen, and that kings and queens are so much taller than other
people, or at any rate seem to be.
LL this time Jack's father and mother had been much won-
dering where they were gone to. At first they supposed
they were gone for a walk as usual, but soon they began to
be alarmed about them, and gradually, as the time went by,
became more and more anxious. Still there were no signs of
Jack and Jill, and at last, as daylight waned and night came

"We care-ratlher hungry," said Jill. At once some food was set before them,
and they ate and drank till they were satisfied. Then the Queen said, Shall
I sing to you ?" And what could Jill say to a queen but, "Yes, your majesty;
if you will be so kind." So this is
THE QUEEN'S SONG.
We fays and elves and fairy sprites, and brownies of the hill,
Look on and watch this moving world, with all its good and ill;
We weep or laugh as we behold men's varying joys and cares,
As changeful hours bring their freight of laughter or of tears.
.We watch the way the world goes-we always watched, they say-
And so we shall be watching till the world's last day.
The little boy and maiden, in childhood's morning hours,
May revel in the sunshine and love the birds and flowers;
And knowledge comes with many a tear and many a troubled sigh,
But soon they dry forgotten tears and laugh their troubles by.
For that's the way the world goes, and always was the way,
And so it will be always to the world's last day.
Soon bashful youth and modest maid our Jack and Jill become,
And forth they go into the world and leave bright childhood's home;
And love brings blushes to each cheek and fills with thought the heart,
As lovers meet and parting sigh, and, sighing, still must part.
For that's the way the world goes-it always was the way-
And so it always will be to the world's last day.
Then on through noontide hours of life, fordone with care and coil,
To woo fair fortune's fickle smile, man's lot it is to toil;
The mother greets his late return with heartfelt welcome warm,
And proudly shows her first-born child safe nestled in her arm.
For that's the way the world goes-it always was the way-
And so it always will be to the world's last day.
At last must come the snowy hair on age's wrinkled brow,
And failing strength must dim the eye, the upright figure bow;
And saddest separations come, and many a long farewell,
As dearest souls go forth alone, in the far-off land to .dwell.
For that's the way the world must go-it always was the way-
And so it must be always till the world's last day.
Thus life's bright stage the actors quit, their destined parts fulfilled,
They all their final exits make, and place to others yield;
And on from age to age the play is acted as of yore,
fl Until the curtain falls for good and earth's last scene is o'er.
And still we watch the world's great stage-as we always watched, they say-
And so we shall be watching at the world's last day.

SAs for Jack and Jill, they were long ago fast asleep !
OW, Jack's father and mother had wondered the whole
day where they were, and, at last, as the evening came

SNot at all," said Jill. It was not alto-

SI am," said Jack, who was not so
: '- p.-' ,lar.
'i, which the Prime Minister (who,
r l.ii, verypolite to the King and Queen,
-.'ill had his own way, and did not even
.: i" tor orders sometimes) shouted out
Sc to the attendants, "Bring up
..' .. supper !"
Supper was quickly brought out,
and laid out on tables in front of
the royal throne. Jack and Jill
S had much difficulty in getting hold
-I-1, v of the little dishes, and in eating
-- the wee pieces of food which were
--on them. But at last they managed
"BRING UP SUPPER!" to get a good supper, and thanked
the King and Queen politely for their good cheer.
"Take away!" shouted the Prime Minister, and the attendants quickly
removed the supper and the tables.
Then the Queen, glancing at the Prime Minister, as if wondering whether
he would object, said, "A song!" And thereupon all the little figures began
to sing, clapping their tiny little hands to keep time, and the King and
Queen and Prime Minister taking the solo parts with great skill. Jack and
Jill thought they had never heard such excellent singing, for all of them knew
their parts quite well, and everybody kept in good time and did not sing
Sflat, which is not always the case with men and women. It
was no wonder that, in the midst of such charming music, Jack
and Jill fell asleep.
N the meantime, Jack and Jill's father and mother began to won-
der where they were. They expected them in vain at dinner and
tea, and began to be anxious, and then, at last, as the night drew
( 63)

on, they determined to set forth and look for them, being now greatly alarmed
at their not coming back.
"Let us take old Tozer the dog with us," said the father, for he will be
certain to find them out."
So they showed old Tozer one of Jack's shoes, and when he saw it he
knew directly what he was to do, and he snuffed about everywhere on the
road till he found by his nose which way they had gone. Then he went
straight into the wood,.and the father and Jack's brother went with him as
he wandered about everywhere that they had been. It took, of course, a long
time to follow them, but at last the dog came to the tree into which Jack and
Jill had crept. He went straight in, and finding them there, lying asleep, he
gave a great bark, as much as to say,. "Here they are!" So Jack's father
crept in, too, and found to his delight that his two children were quite safe,
and they had been awakened by the bark which the dog gave.
Now, though they had been pleased enough to see the old tree lighted
up by the elves, yet they were still more pleased to see it lighted up by their
father's lantern. So they went home with him, and told him on the way
all that they had seen in the tree; but as it happened that they did not
quite agree in all the particulars, I am afraid he did not believe it all; and
I hope, my dear little friends, that in this respect you will not be like him,
but will believe every word of this and of all stories which are equally true,
and will not. (at any rate for the present) get so foolishly wise as to think that
the dear old tales about fairies and elves are all of them quite


A "HUM."


( 65 )








-8-
on, they began to fear that some accident had happened to them, and they set
off in search of them.
It was some time before they found them, for they never thought of
looking into the old hollow tree,- although they guessed at once that they
were somewhere in the wood. Jack and Jill were so tired with all their ad-
ventures in the day that they slept very soundly, and so did hot wake up in
spite of the many shouts of "Jack!" and "Jill!" that sounded through the wood.
At last, however, they were found, and carried home in triumph, but not
without some scolding for the fright they had given- their parents. Then
they told them all that they had seen in the wood that day, and all the
wonders of the hollow tree, and, in fact, talked of them for a long time after-
wards. But no one quite believed all the story of the tree, and some asked
Jack and Jill to come into the wood the next night to see if'they could find
any wonderful people in the tree again. So the next night they went with
a lantern and looked into the tree, and it is my firm conviction that they
could see nothing of .the weird little figures just because they went with
a lantern and just out of curiosity, for fays'and elves, and such-like sprites,
are fond of disappointing those who visit them from no better reason.
But when Jack and Jill got home that night, although they had slept very
sound for some time in the tree, they were still very tired, and were soon put to
bed. So let us now wish them, and you too (dear little friends), if it is bed-time,

on, they were frightened out of their very wits, and supposed that Jack and
Jill had been stolen by gipsies, or got drowned in the river.
They never thought of looking for them in the wood, though they searched
for them everywhere else. So next morning, when Jack and Jill woke up in
the tree, their father and mother were still looking for them everywhere but
in the right place.
The first thing they did was to look for the little figures, and particularly
their majesties. They could see nothing of them, and there was no answer
even when they called out, "Your majesty!" and "My lord the Prime Minister !"
as loud as ever they could.
Seeing there was no prospect of breakfast with the little people, they said
the best thing was to go and get breakfast at home, and come and look for them
another time.
They started off, therefore, and as they soon came to the stream which
flowed down through the wood into the village, all they had to do was to
follow it, and they quickly found themselves out of the wood.
They were soon at the house; and found their father and mother crying,
and in a great trouble about them. When they saw them come back quite safe
and sound they cried again, this time for joy. They asked them where they had
been, and told them they must not go into the wood any more without someone
to take care of them. And, indeed, when they remembered how frightened they
themselves had been before they saw the little people in the tree, they were
themselves glad to be again












AT HOME.


( 69)







-8-
on, they were in a terrible fright about them, and, after making some inquiries
of the neighbours, they started off to try and find them. Someone said they had
been seen going into the wood, so they searched for them all night there, but
could not find them, for they never thought of looking into the roots of the
old tree.
At last the morning came, and Jack and Jill woke up when the daylight
looked in at them in the old tree. They were rather stiff with so hard a bed,
but they looked about for the little figures they had seen in the tree the
night before, but they could see nothing of them.
"It is strange," said Jack, "that we cannot see them."
Elves and people of that sort," said Jill, wisely, only appear at night."
"I want some breakfast," said Jack, and I think we shall get it best at home."
Just then they heard someone coming, and they soon found themselves
in their father's arms.
"I am so glad," said the father: "why did you run away into the wood?
We were so frightened."
"Why should you be frightened ?" said Jack. "All boys like woods."
"We have lots to tell you," said Jill.
So they went home and had some breakfast, and told all they had seen in
the wood.
But no one believed them, and every one said, "It nmust have been a dream."
They said, "No! It was -all quite true." But as they .did not go again the
next night to see the little figures, I am afraid it must remain still uncertain
whether it was a dream or not; and this, dear little friends, is
