OLD Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard
To get her poor dog a bone;
When she came there
The cupboard was bare,
And so the poor dog had none.

She went to the baker's
To buy him some bread,
But when she came back
The poor dog was dead.

She went to the joiner's
To buy him a coffin,
But when she came back
The poor dog was laughing.

She took a clean dish
To get him some tripe,
But when she came back
He was smoking his pipe.

She went to the ale-house
To get him some beer,
But when she came back
The dog sat in a chair.

For white wine and red,

And when she came back

The dog stood on his head.

She went to the barber's

To buy him a wig,

And when she came back

He was dancing a jig.

To buy him a coat,
But when she came back
He was riding the goat.

She went to the cobbler's
To buy him some shoes,
But when she came back
He was reading the news.

To buy him some hose,
But when she came back

To buy him a hat,

The dame made a curtsey,
The dog made a bow;
The dame said, "Your servant,"
The dog said, "Bow, wow!"

This wonderful dog
Was Dame Hubbard's delight;
He could sing, he could dance,
He could read, he could write.

So she gave him rich dainties
Whenever he fed,
And erected a monument
When he was dead.




O NCE upon a time, in the days when there were Fairies, a gentleman's
wife died, leaving him one little baby daughter. The gentleman
did not think he could take proper care of this poor little thing, so he
married another wife, that she might be a mother to his child. This lady
was a widow, and had two daughters of her own who were much older
than his little girl. While her father lived the child was well treated; but
by-and-bye he died, and not long after his second wife died also; and little
Ella was left to the sole care of her two grown-up step-sisters. They were
very unkind, selfish young women. They did not love Ella; but they loved
money very much, and liked to keep all her father had left to spend on
themselves; so they gave poor Ella no nice clothes, nor books, nor toys,
but made her do the work of a servant for them; and as she was often
dirty from sifting the cinders and making the fires, they nicknamed her
Now, when Cinderella was grown up, though still very young, the King
of that country gave a ball, and invited all the ladies in the land to it.
Cinderella's sisters were going, and they made her dress them for it. She
wished very much to go also, but when she asked them to take her they
only laughed, and said, A ball was no place for a cinder-sifter And,
indeed, she had no dress to go in. When they were gone, therefore, the
poor girl sat down by the kitchen fire and cried, for she was very sad.

Just as she was wishing that she had a dear kind mamma to love her
and take care of her, a light cloud floated into the kitchen, and on it stood
a lovely little Fairy, with a silver star on her forehead. Cinderella sprang
up, very much surprised and a little frightened; but the Fairy said, Do
not be afraid of me, my dear child. I am your Godmother, and I am
come to comfort and help you. You shall go to the ball at the palace if
you wish it. But first go into the garden and bring me a pumpkin."
Cinderella, after thanking the Fairy, made haste to obey her. She
went into the garden, and, as it was a clear moonlight evening, she soon
found a large pumpkin, and brought it back in her arms. The Fairy
touched it with her wand, and it turned into a grand coach. Then she
bade Cimderella bring her a rat. The girl went to the barn and found
a large one. She brought it in the trap, and the fairy touched it with her
wand. Instantly it changed into a fat coachman, dressed in crimson and
gold. "Now," said the Fairy, "find two mice for me."
These also were found in the trap, and 'were changed by a touch into
two tall smart footmen in red and gold. Then the Fairy called some grass-
hoppers out of the garden, and you would have laughed to see them come
hopping in. The Fairy touched them, and they became four fine spirited
white horses, which went out at once and let the coachman put them to.
Next the Fairy touched Cinderella with her wand, and instantly the poor
working dress turned into a flowing white satin robe; the boddice into a
blue velvet tunic, edged with gold and rubies, and a beautiful lace frill; a
cord of gold and rubies bound her hair; and on her feet were the smallest
and prettiest of glass slippers.
Now," said the Fairy, "go to the ball and enjoy yourself. But mind
you leave the palace before the clock strikes TWELVE. If you disobey me,
your fine dress will turn into your own old rags again."
Cinderella promised that she would obey her Godmother, and thanked
her very much for her kindness to her. Then she stepped into the fine
carriage which was waiting at the door, and drove off to the King's palace

very happy; though I dare say she felt a little shy. The Fairy went back
to Fairyland.
When Cinderella drove up to the palace door, the servants were sur-
prised to see such a beautiful young lady all alone. They thought she
must be some young Princess; so they called the Lord Chamberlain, and
he bowed low and showed her into the ball-room. Everybody wondered
who this lovely stranger could be; and the Prince asked her at once to
dance with him, and afterwards would not let her dance with any one else.
Ices, and cakes, and wine were in the refreshment-rooms, and Cinderella
had some of these, but she would not stay to supper. She obeyed the
Fairy exactly, andleft at half-past eleven, when she found her coach waiting
for her at the door.
On reaching home, she was no sooner out of the carriage than it turned
into a pumpkin, and rolled away; the rats and mice took their own shapes
again, and ran off; the grasshoppers hopped away to bed; and Cinderella
had taken off her fine dress and put on her kitchen gown by the time her
sisters came home. They told her it had been a delightful ball, and that a
beautiful young Princess had been at it, whose dress was quite charming.
They had not known Cinderella in her fine dress. The Prince, they said,
had been quite vexed when supper-time came and he found that her_
Royal Highness was gone; and he had persuaded the King to give an-
other ball, hoping that she would go to it also.
The next time Cinderella dressed them for a royal ball she was quite
merry, for she knew that she should go also; and so it happened.
The Fairy came again; made a pumpkin coach and 'servants as before,
and Cinderella went happily to the palace; for the Fairy had praised her
obedience, and said, Mind you leave before twelve 'to-night also."
Directly the Prince saw her he asked her to dai ce, and introduced her
to the King and Queen, who were much pleased by her modest manner.
Cinderella was so happy that she lingered a few n.inutes after the half-hour
that night, and left the palace at a quarter to twelve. But her carriage was

all ready, and she was soon at home, and had changed her dress before
her sisters returned.
The Prince was very much vexed when he found that his beautiful
partner had again left before supper; and once more he persuaded the
King to give a ball, in hopes he might see her at it.
I wonder if the fair Princess will be there ?" said the elder sister to
Cinderella, as the girl brushed her hair; mind you do my hair just as I
told you she wears hers; put my gold circlet on my head to-night. She
is so splendid that she makes us look quite shabby."
Cinderella smiled. She had been very obedient, so she was sure her
Godmother would come and send her to the ball again. And she was
right. The Fairy came earlier than usual that evening, and Cinderella
looked more lovely than ever. The Prince would scarcely leave her side;
and as she was getting a little spoiled by so much admiration and flattery,
she began to think more of herself and less of the Fairy. The minutes
stole by unheeded, till, happening to look up at the clock, she saw that it
wanted only five minutes to twelve. Terribly frightened, she darted out of
the ball-room, and ran through the state chambers at full speed. But just
as she was half-way downstairs she lost one of her glass slippers. She
could not stop to pick it up, but ran on to the door. Alas at that moment
the deep voice of the clock sounded: One-two-three-four-five-six
-seven-eight-nine-ten-eleven-TWELVE!" and as the last stroke fell
on the clock bell, all her fine dress turned to rags, and running out into
the moonlight, she saw her coach roll away as a pumpkin, the rat and mice
run squeaking off, and she had to go home all alone and on foot.
You may think how fast she had to run to be home before her sisters, for
it was a long drive, and how sorry she was for having disobeyed the Fairy.
The Prince was very much vexed when he found the Princess gone
just before supper, and he sent down to ask the guards if they had seen
her go away. But they said no one had passed out of the palace but a
poor beggar girl all in rags. Then the Prince searched for her everywhere,

f N.7.

and at last, on the stairs, he found the beautiful little glass slipper which he
knew the Princess had worn.
Many more balls were given, but he never saw his lost love again. The
Fairy, angry at her disobedience, came no more, and Cinderella had to
stay at home and weep. But the Prince loved her so much that he de-
clared he would never marry any one else; and as the King wished him
very much to marry, he resolved to send out a herald to proclaim that the
Prince would wed the lady who could put on a very small slipper he had
found. For," said the Prince, "no one else has such a little foot! Only
my Princess could put it on."
All the grand ladies of the Court tried to put on the slipper, but not one
of them could. Then the ladies in the town tried, but they could not.
Next the ladies in the country tried, but it was of no use,-no one could
put it on. Cinderella's sisters, at whose house the Prince called at their
request, did their utmost to get a foot into it, but it was absurdly too small
for them. Then the Lord Chamberlain said, Is there any one else in
this house who would like to try ? And they said there was no one but
the kitchen-maid. The Prince laughed, but said, "Let her try;" and
Cinderella came in. He thought she looked exactly like his beautiful lost
Princess; and when she sate down and easily drew on the slipper, he ex-
pected just what followed. She drew the other slipper out of her pocket
and put on both.
Then the Prince exclaimed, It must be my Princess! Why do I find
her here ?" And Cinderella told him all her sad story. As she finished
speaking, the Fairy suddenly appeared before them, and saying, My
Prince, this young girl is worthy of your love," put Cinderella's hand in
his, and instantly she was again clothed in her enchanted garments. The
Prince was delighted; for he knew now that Cinderella was good, and
patient, and obedient, and that she who had learned to serve well would
also rule well. The King and Queen, who had known her father as a
brave and noble gentleman, were also glad to receive his daughter as their

son's wife. They would have punished the sisters severely, but Cinderella
begged that they might be forgiven; and she was very good and kind to
them,-so kind, that she made them quite ashamed of their bad conduct;
and though they were a little jealous of her, they were proud to be her
bridesmaids, and she would have no others.
There was such a grand wedding when the Prince married Cinderella.
Everybody was pleased; for the poor as well as the rich were feasted on
that day; and they said to each other, Our Princess knows what work
and sorrow and trial are. She will feel always for the poor, and will be
good to us;" and so she was. Cinderella and the Prince lived long and
happily together, and their people were very well governed and very con-
tented. Her children and her children's children loved to look at the
glass slippers, which were kept with the crown jewels under a glass case;
and as they thought that other children, in the long years that were to
come, would like to hear their story, they had it written. And so it is,
that you, little darlings, and other happy children all over the world, know

Into a meadow hard by;

There she espied

Their tails side by side,

Hung up in a tree to dry!
