One day the sisters received an invita-

“Do you mean,

“Oh! yes, I should,” cried Cinderella.

“Well, well!” said’ her godmother,
“be a good girl, and you shall go.”

Cinderella soon dried her tears; and
when her godmother said, “ Fetch mea
pumpkin from the garden,” she ran and
got the largest she could find; but not
knowing that her godmother wasa Fairy,
she did not think this had much to do
with going to the ball.
The Fairy scooped it hollow, touched
it with her wand, and immediately
changed it into a magnificent carriage,
lined with satin and plush, fit for a Royal
Highness to ride in.

the Fairy; “ but it won't go far without

VE

The clock struck a quarter of twelve.

_ Then Cinderella remembered the Fairy’s

warning and, making a courtesy to all the
company, immediately returned home.

After kissing her godmother, she asked
if she might go the next night, as the
Prince had decided to have another ball,
and particularly wished her to come.

Before she had finished telling the
Fairy all the events of the evening, the
two sisters knocked at the door, and -Cin-
derella, whose beautiful clothes disap-
peared at that instant, let them in.

“Oh! how late you are!” she yawned,
rubbing her eyes, and stretching herself,
as though she had just woke up.

“Ah!” said one of the sisters, “ you
would not have beén so sleepy, if you
had been with us. We have been talk-
ing, nearly the whole evening, to a most
lovely Princess.” :

Cinderella could not help feeling
-very much pleased secretly at hear-
ing this.. She asked the name of
the Princess, but they could not say.

They only knew that the Prince was

greatly distressed at her leaving so

suddenly, and would give all the
_- world to find out where she came

~~ from.

THe PRINCE AND THE SLIPPER,

Cinderella’s eyes beamed with Joy.
“How beautiful she must have been!”
she said, “and how very fortunate you
both were in being invited! If you were
to lend me one of.your old, every-day
dresses, don’t you think I could go and
see her ?”

“Oh! the idea,” the sisters screamed.
“A kitchen wench like you! What
next will you think of ?”

The following night the two sisters
went again to the ball, and Cinderella's
eodmother let her also go; but in a much
handsomer dress than before.

The Prince waited for her at the door,
at least three-quarters of an hour, and
when she arrived, he again led her into
the ball-room. He danced with her every
time, and kept by. her side the whole

forgot her godmother’s warning, and the
time had passed so quickly, she did not
think it was more than eleven, when the
first stroke of midnight sounded. She
jumped up from her seat by the side of
the Prince, rushed across the room, and
flew down stairs. The Prince ran after
her; but was too late. The only trace
of her was a glass slipper, which had
fallen off inher flight. The Prince picked
it up, and would not part with it.

passed to her.

THE PRINCE FINDS THE SLIPPER,





When its

highest—

their merriment was at

VE

The clock struck a quarter of twelve.

_ Then Cinderella remembered the Fairy’s

warning and, making a courtesy to all the
company, immediately returned home.

After kissing her godmother, she asked
if she might go the next night, as the
Prince had decided to have another ball,
and particularly wished her to come.

Before she had finished telling the
Fairy all the events of the evening, the
two sisters knocked at the door, and -Cin-
derella, whose beautiful clothes disap-
peared at that instant, let them in.

“Oh! how late you are!” she yawned,
rubbing her eyes, and stretching herself,
as though she had just woke up.

“Ah!” said one of the sisters, “ you
would not have beén so sleepy, if you
had been with us. We have been talk-
ing, nearly the whole evening, to a most
lovely Princess.” :

Cinderella could not help feeling
-very much pleased secretly at hear-
ing this.. She asked the name of
the Princess, but they could not say.

They only knew that the Prince was

greatly distressed at her leaving so

suddenly, and would give all the
_- world to find out where she came

~~ from.

THe PRINCE AND THE SLIPPER,

Cinderella’s eyes beamed with Joy.
“How beautiful she must have been!”
she said, “and how very fortunate you
both were in being invited! If you were
to lend me one of.your old, every-day
dresses, don’t you think I could go and
see her ?”

“Oh! the idea,” the sisters screamed.
“A kitchen wench like you! What
next will you think of ?”

The following night the two sisters
went again to the ball, and Cinderella's
eodmother let her also go; but in a much
handsomer dress than before.

The Prince waited for her at the door,
at least three-quarters of an hour, and
when she arrived, he again led her into
the ball-room. He danced with her every
time, and kept by. her side the whole
evening Z |

forgot her godmother’s warning, and the
time had passed so quickly, she did not
think it was more than eleven, when the
first stroke of midnight sounded. She
jumped up from her seat by the side of
the Prince, rushed across the room, and
flew down stairs. The Prince ran after
her; but was too late. The only trace
of her was a glass slipper, which had
fallen off inher flight. The Prince picked
it up, and would not part with it.

Poor Cinderella got home frightened
