THERE were once three sisters, named Cordelia, Katharina
and Ella. The two elder sisters were very fine ladies
indeed, they dressed in smart clothes, and did nothing all day but
a read story books and look at themselves in mirrors,
NX W and then in the evening they went to a ball
M \ 7 or concert. Ella never went,
she had to sweep and even
clean the grates, and some-
times she got very dusty
from the ashes, and so her
> sisters called her Cinderella,
Sand other people thought
that was her right name
and called her so too.
Poor little Cinderella, she
a- ^ had to work very hard, and
-a her sisters were very STi' unkind to
her, and although she was always very tired,
she had to do their hair and help
them dress. Well, one evening the
two sisters had gone to a very
grand ball, given by the King, and
Cinderella was sitting thinking how
much she would have liked to have '^N
gone too, when her godmother, who
was a Fairy, came to her and
asked her why she was looking

so sa:-1. The poor little girl told her. "Oh," said the Fairy,
"is thantl~.. all ? Go and fetch me a pumpkin, and, if there
S- are any mice and rats in the traps, bring them,
too, and some lizards." Cinderella did as
i her godmother told her. She brought a
I:"i.'i.. ibig pumpkin from the garden, two fine
rats, six mice and six lizards. The Fairy
Touched them with her wand, and then,
O wonderful! The pumpkin was changed
into a lovely carriage, the mice into white
Shores with wavy tails and manes, the rats into
coachman and footman, and the
lizards into page boys. It was a most
beautiful turnout. "Now,"said the Fairy.
"you can go to the ball." "Oh, but how
in this dress, godmother dear ?" said 1
Cinderella, looking at her shabby
frock. But, while she looked, it
was a shabby frock no longer; it
turned into a costly silk gown, and
there she saw, not poor little
crumpled, dusty Cinderella, but a
lovely maiden, dressed in beautiful clothes,
everything quite perfect except her shoes, which were clumsy
and old. Cinderella gave a little gasp of pleasure, and then a little
sigh of sorrow as she looked at her shoes, but she
soon cheered up, for her godmother gave her a
pair of slippers, oh, such pretty slippers, made
of glass. "Put these on," said the Fairy,
"and you will be able to dance as grace-
fully as, if you had been to dancing classes
all your life." Then Cinderella got into her
Grand carriage, and was driven to the

King's Palace. As she was starting
the Fairy said, "Be sure you come
home before twelve, for as soon
as the clock strikes, your carriage
AI..\ will vanish and your fine clothes."
Everybody at the Palace
was astonished when they saw
such a grand lady; they did not
know who she was at all, even
Cinderella's sisters did not
know her, The Prince fell in
love with her at once, and he
"A would dance with no one else.
Once when Cinderella was tak-
ing refreshment she sat down by
r sisters, and she spoke to them and
offered them some
fruit, but still they did not know\w \\o
she was, and they felt very proud t
that she should notice them. She
remembered what her god-
mother had said and reached
home before twelve o'clock.
Presently her sisters came in,
and they could talk of nothing
but the beautiful fair lady. Next
night they went to a ball at the;,
Palace again, and Cinderella went
too, and looked still more beau-.,
tiful, and she was so happy with..
the Prince that she quite forgot: :,.
the time until the hands of the 1
clock pointed to five minutes t-

twelve. She ran off in a great hurry, but the Palace
was / so big, that before she had reached the
/ entrance it struck twelve, and the guard
at the door could not think how it was
such a shabby girl had got in, for all
Cinderella's clothes were old now,
except her glass slippers and
one of these she had dropped
'/e on the stairs in her haste.
S/Well, the Prince was not at
7 > all pleased when his beautiful
partner ran away from him in
such a hurry, and he
went after her, but he A
was only in time to
pick up her little slipper. He was very unhappy
indeed, as the days went past and he saw
nothing more of the lady he loved so
dearly. He put the slipper on a velvet
cushion under a glass shade, and he used
.. 'l to stand and gaze i
i,~,at it, and quite .
forgot to eat, and
he got so thin and
pale that the King and Queen did not
know what to do to comfort him, for
although they had asked lots and lots
of people, nobody knew anything
W.W about the beautiful lady. But one
'- day a happy thought came to the
Prince. He was standing looking at the
slipper, thinking how tiny it was, and that he had

never seen any lady with a foot that it wouldd
fit. "Why," he exclaimed, "perhaps '
by that I can find out to whom it J
belongs!" So he sent out a herald
with a trumpet, and a little page
boy with the glass slipper on the
velvet cushion. The herald blew a
"too-ra-loo-ra-loo," and then called
out in a very loud voice that _
any lady whom the glass
slipper would fit should be the Prince's wife. And this the
herald did in every street. And all the ladies ran and
begged him to let them try it on. But although they
twisted their feet into all kinds of
shapes, and screwed up their toes
till they got the cramp, they could
not get that slipper on, for it was
a fairy slipper and would only fit
i the person to whom it belonged.
J At last the herald came to the
-EE Astreet where Cinderella lived.
When the two elder sisters heard
he cried out, they were wild with "
excitement, and when he came into ,O
the house, oh, how they squeezed t
and squeezed their feet trying to
get them into the slipper. Cinderella
stood watching them, and at last she said,.
"Let me try, please." "Stupid gill," said
the sisters, "fancy you trying; why look at
your big, clumsy shoe. Go and wash your --
dishes." But the herald said: "Let her

try, the Prince commanded me to .,
refuse none."
So Cinderella sat down, and
without any trouble put her
-foot into the slipper, and out of
her pocket she took the mate
to it. Then the Fairy came and
touched her with her wand,
and once more she was dressed.
in beautiful clothes, and every
one knew she was the lovely k,
lady at the ball. And her .
sisters fell down on their knees T.-
and begged her pardon for
using her so badly, for they-,
were frightened now that they"''*",
knew she would some day be Queen. Cinderella forgave
them gladly, and when they saw
how kind and good she still
was, they made up their minds
to try to be like her.
The Herald hastened back
to the Palace and told the
Prince how he had traveled
far and wide and how a great
many ladies had tried to put
bu the slipper on but had failed,
i but that at last he came to a
house where a lovely girl lived,
with her two, sisters, and that
when she tried the slipper it
went on at once. The Prince
was greatly pleased and sent the

,-.6 royal carriage drawn by six snow white horses,
'l and .s'-aily decked in plumes and tassels, and
\\ithi footmen and pages, to bring the

married there was a grand supper and
a magnificent ball. The Prince was so delighted that the next
day he gave a grand feast to all the peasantry, and every one
rejoiced to see that the Prince had been restored to health
and had secured such a lovely bride.
Cinderella went among the poor people like a good Samaritan
and was dearly loved by every one. The two sisters that

became more like her, '..

Beauty and the Beast.

ONCE upon a time, there lived a rich mer-
chant, who had a great many ships,
but one after another all of them were
wrecked, so that he became quite poor,
and had to go and live in a little cottage.
His youngest daughter loved him
dearly; she tried all she could to
make him happy, and she did all the
house work, for they were too poor to
keep a servant; but his other two
daughters were proud and unloving,
and they were always grumbling and
saying unkind things to their youngest ,
sister. One day the' sisters were sitting .
Sin the garden, when an old woman came
:-and .eg.d for something to drink.
Thel two elder girls answered that
the\ were not going to wait on old
i ,,-be,-r women, but Beauty went at
o -nce alnd fetched a glass of milk.
The old woman was very grateful,
and told her that if her father
'.. went to a certain country
--- he would find his ships
-and be rich once more.
-~- .--
-, LThen she vanished-for she
-_ was really a fairy-and Beauty

"I want nothing, dear
she, "except to see you
again; but if you really

"Stupid girl," cried her sisters,

merchant, and then he asked

In the garden he saw a lovely white rose tree;
T-*li, he went in, and had just gathered a rose when
.- he heard a deep, deep voice saying, "Who
-. Y-. steals my roses must die!" He turned
^f' round, and saw a great Beast. The poor
father fell on his knees, and begged for
J forgiveness. But the Beast said he must
certainly die unless his daughter Beauty
Sf^ U. were willing to be killed in his stead.
At home, the sisters were wondering
why their father did not come, and one
/ "".^- 4 night Beauty dreamed of all that had
./ happened to him. She awoke in tears, and
found a beautiful fairy at her bedside. Beauty
told the fairy why she was crying, and said that she longed to
die for her father, and the fairy bade her go to sleep again and all
would be well.
Beauty did so, and in the morning she found
herself in the garden of the Beast's palace. She
wandered round a long
time seeing nobody, and :

in it she saw her father
arriving at home, so she U
was happy knowing that M
he was safe. Then in tn
another room she met the -
Beast. But he was not at
all fierce and cruel, he was -R
very kind; he did not kill
Beauty, but let her live on in

his beautiful palace, and every day he
came to see her, and she grew quite fond
of him. One day he said, "Beauty, will
you be my wife?" "Oh, no, dear Beast,
please," said Beauty, "I couldn't."
The Beast looked very sad, but
he was just as kind to her as
ever, and one day she told him
she did so want to see her /,
father again, so the Beast gave
her a ring, and said, "Put this
under your pillow to-night,
and when you wake up you
will be at home, but be sure you come back in ten days;
if you don't I shall die." Beauty was very, very happy next
morning when she found herself at home. Her father was very
much delighted to see her, but her sisters turned quite green with
envy when they heard that she lived in a beautiful palace. The
days went by so happily and quickly that Beauty lost count of
them, and when she asked her sisters one day
how long she had been home, they told her
eight days, when it was really ten; they
told her so not because they loved her
and wished to keep her at home, but
because they were jealous of what
they called her good fortune. That
night Beauty had a terrible
dream, she dreamed that the
Beast was dying; directly she
woke up, oh, so sad, she put

the magic ring under her pillow, and
in the morning was back at the
palace. She ran through all the
rooms, but nowhere could she
"find her dear Beast. At last in
the garden she saw him lying,
almost dead. She hurried to a
spring and got some water,
which she sprinkled over him.
Then the Beast revived a little. T.
"Beauty, will you marry me?"
he said. "Yes, dear Beast, I
will," cried Beauty, for she was
so sorry for him. Then there -.
was a great rumbling, and there where
the Beast had been, stood a handsome
.young Prince. He told Beauty that
S a long time ago he lived in a great
palace, and had servants and
horses and jewelry and every-
thing that should make one con-
tented and happy; but as all of
these things were very common
to him, and as he had had every
wish gratified, he was discontented,
and that one day, while playing
in the garden he had wished that
he was an animal in place of being
a prince, so that he would not have
to mind any one, or dress up, or do

-: ----- ---t g hh d d
an thing that he did not want to.
-Scarcely had he made the wish
before a fairy stood before
N.:- wahim and asked him what
kind of an animal he would
Like to be. The Prince said
..d- that he would like to be a
Spent bear, and immediately
she waived her wand over
.... -_ -.- -,-,- -
.- a him and he was turned
into a bear, and the fairy
told him that he should be a Beast until some maiden had
promised to marry him.
As he grew larger he became a nuisance around the Palace
grounds, and that his father, the King, had sent him to this place,
where Beauty had found him, for safe keeping. He was very
unhappy and wished many, many times that he could be once
more a Prince, and that he would certainly never wish for any-
thing else.
So the Prince and Beauty were married,
and Beauty wore a lovely white satin gown,
trimmed with jewels and lace, but .
she would have no flowers except
the white roses which grew in
the Prince's garden, "for," said
she, "it is a white rose that -
has brought me this happi-
ness." And then the Prince -
took her to a Palace far, / b
far grander than the one '

he had lived in when he was a Beast.
"This," said he, "is the palace I .'.
lived in before the fairy
changed me into a Beast,
and it is here that we will
live and be happy." __ -
Every one was de- -
lighted at the Prince's / '"
return, and a grand ball
was given in honor of
his bride. Beauty and the Prince were extremely happy. The
next day, as Beauty was strolling in the garden, she said to
herself: "Oh, I wish I could see my father." Out stepped the
fairy from among the flowers and said: "Your father is now in
the palace." Beauty started to see her father, but before she had
got far she remembered her two sisters, and turning to the fairy
she said: "Fairy, dear, where are my two sisters?" The fairy
replied, that for their jealous and unkind disposition she had
turned them into stone to be placed on pedestals at the palace
gate. Beauty was very sad to hear this
About her sisters, but the fairy assured her
Q that they would be happy at some future
time, and told her to go at once, as
her father was waiting for her. As.
Beauty reached the palace
steps she saw her father
standing in the door. She
if kissed him and told him how
glad she was to see him, and
that from that time he was
to live with herself and the
Prince at the palace.
