At all events the Fairy-goc1motler is equal

In the hope that her picture-book may not beaun-

"JOHN LANE -
ONCE on a time an Emperor, a man of might
Married a wife, and fair was she, and Bellisanit her
And fair and happy were their lives, until an evil man
(He was the High Priest of the Court) an evil tale
Of how the lady was not true unto her husband dear:
Tile Emperor believed the tale, and rose up in great
And drove poor Bclliant away; in haste and dire
She took her way to Pepin's Court (her brother, King

And as she fled, weighed down by grief and
sense of cruel scorn,
Lo, in the forest two fair sons to Bellisant were
But while her servant went to buy some food, a
Came up, and carried off one child unto her
Poor Bellisant ran after her, with many a sigh
In vain,-and when she turned again, the other
child was gone!
INOW, i'rpin cnancea tnat very cay to nunt \ tn
all his train
In that same wood, and found the child ere she
came back again;
And took him home, and brought him up, and
gave him all things fine-
Apparel, horses, and a name so he was
And brave and fair he grew,-king Pepin's
daughter loved him well;
The sons were jealous. Now will I his brother's
The she-bear and her savaw cubs, they saved the child alive.
And nursed him well, and ended him,-well did he grow and thrive.
TheN' called him ORSON; i the woods he lived, a strong wild man.
And all he fought he kille with ease; and so a wicked plan I-
Was made by Pepin's sponsor getting rid of Valentine,
Whom they induced to fig with him, b flattering words and fine.
But Valentine was conquer, and Orson owned his might,
And served and followed Im always; and the), were squire and knight.

Now, in that land there dwelt a man, the
Green Knight he was called,
Who by his strength and magic arts a lady
And kept in prison dark and strong, and none
could set her free:
Not even Valentine prevailed, with all his
But Orson threw the Green Knight down, and
bound him with a chain,
And set the lady free; both brothers then
start off to gain
The Green Knight's castle-gates,-two roaring
lions kept guard there,
But down they crouched when they beheld the
brothers void of fear.
And therewithin the castle hall theysawa head of brass
That uttered marvels,-of their birth, and how it came
How in a convent lonely was their mother Bellisant;
How the King and Queen of France were their uncle
and their aunt ;
How the High Priest had confessed his lies, with
many tears and groans;
How the Emperor, their father, was in search of wife
So the lost were found, the wrong made right, by all
good rule and line;
They married well, and lived long years-ORSON and
