CINDERELLA.





C)NCE upon a time there lived a rich man who had
a wife and one young daughter, a very sweet
and pretty girl. The wife fell sick and died, and after
: 2 ‘ a while the father
married again.
‘The lady he mar-
ried this time was
proud and cross,
and she had two
grown-up daugh-
ters like herself.
The new wife
took a great dis-
like to her step-
child, because she
was prettier, and
had better man-
ners than her own
daughters. So
both she and the
daughters were
very unkind to
the poor girl,
whom they made
do all the hard
work of the house.

CINDE REEL.



While the two sisters spent their time in the drawing-
room, she had to stay in the kitchen, the only place she

could sit being in the chimney-corner amongst the
cinders, and from this her proud, cruel sisters gave her
the name of Cinderella.

One day the two sisters received an invitation to a
ball at the King’s palace. They were in high glee,
and at once had the whole house in a stir to get them
ready to appear in grand style. They made Cinderella
help them to dress, for they knew her taste was better
than theirs, although they would not tell her so.

The night came, and the sisters rode off to the ball,
being mean enough to taunt Cinderella at the ‘last
moment because she was not going too.

The poor girl-went to her chimney-corner, and could
not help weeping as she sat there, thinking about her
sisters’ cruelty.’ Suddenly her godmother, who was a
Fairy, appeared before her and asked her why she wept.

‘T wish—I-wish—” said Cinderella, with a sob, but
she could not say a word more.

“You wish to go to the ball—is not that it?” said
the Fairy.

“Ah, yes,” said the poor child, and she began to
sob afresh.

‘Well, be a good girl, aud you shall go,” said the
Fairy.

She touched Cinderella’s dingy gown and it was
changed in an instant into a beautiful ball-dress. Then

she gave her a pair of slippers, the prettiest ever seen.
They were made of glass, but were soft as silk, and

fitted her exactly. The Fairy then took a pumpkin,
scooped it out, and touched it with her wand, and it
became a splendid coach. Next she went to the mouse-
trap, and finding six live mice in it, she touched them
too, with her wand, and turned them into six-dashing
horses... Then.she made a coachman.out of a great
fat, and three: footmen out of lizards.from the garden.

She must not fail. to. leave the ‘palace. before twelve
o'clock, for at that hour her. fine dress. would turn again
to rags, and her. coachiand horses and servants to
what they had been in the first,place. |

There was great stir at the palace when Cinderella’s
splendid coach drove up. The Lord High Chamberlain
helped her to alight, and sescorted her himself into
the ball-room. Tce he presented her to the Prince,
the King’s only son, and he at once claimed her hand
for the next dance. Every. one present was struck with
her beauty, and with the richness of her dress, and
the elegance of her dancing.. Even her proud sisters
could not help but admire her, little thinking who she
was, and they were. poe that she took notice
of them. ae A

she took little heed of how the hours were passing, and
quite forgot her godmother's warning until she heard
the see begin to ‘strike twelve. She was sitting beside
the Prince, and she jumped up from her seat, rushed
across the room, and flew down Stairs.

The Prince ran after her, but could not overtake her.
The only trace of her was one of her glass slippers,
which had fallen off in her flight. The Prince picked
it up, and declared .in* the; jpresence of the whole court,

Cinderella had to reach: homeron: foot, and had none
of her finery left except,the other glass slipper.

orders to stop’at every house, so that every lady might

an end to all doubt, the Fairy godmother at that mo-
ment appeared, and touching Cinderella’s clothes with
her wand, changed them again into handsome robes of
satin and lace. ;

they had treated Cin-

fearing that she might
seize the chance to pay
