in an angry voice what had happened, and hc apologized profusely,
promising to always awaken after that.
"'l'he Queen said, 'Very well, Mr. t'ockletoo, l'll give you one
1no1'e chanceg and then il' you fail, l will throw a spell over you, so
that t'orever and ever, you. and your descendants will have to wake
up and crow at Your o'clock in the morning, no matter how tired
you may bc.'
"The Queen went away. For a long timc after, the rooster
was t'aithl'ul, until one morning he tailed to awaken, causing many
ol' the fairies to go blind.
"VVhen at last he did awaken, the Queen was beside him. She
had come to fulfill her threat. Ever after, the poor roosterhwas
compelled to wake up at four, and crow, So it is when you liear
the roosters crow in the early morniug,x you will know they are
warning the fairies ot' the approaching day."
"That was a very nice story, Grandfather," said little Dannie,
yawning, "but l'm sorry that the rooster didn 't have an alarm-
cloek. Perhaps he would have waked up then." I
"Wt'll, l guess you'll need an alarm clock it' you don 't go to
bed pretty soon," laughed Grandfather.

The Stars Baseball Game
One night the stars gathered together behind a dark cloud.
They were wondering what new game to play. -
Suddenly a star piped up and said, 'tLet's play baseball as the
children ofthe earth play. "
'Phe very thing," cried all the others, 'tbut who will we have
for umpire ?'l
"Why, the moon of course," said a little star.
"Will you," pointing to the moon, "be umpire?" asked the
stars in a chorus.
"Wl1y', yes," answered the moon. "You,'l pointing to a few
large stars, "be first, seeond and third basemen, and you be pitcher
and you be catcher."
'tliut what are we going to have for the bat and ball?" asked
"VVhy, the bowl ot the dipper for the ball and the handle tor
the bat, of course," chirped up a little star. K
'tAll right, play ball,". yelled the excited moon.
The game Went on all night and the stars liked it so much they
have played it every night for years. H ,
Every time a home run is knocked, the mortals on earth see a
shooting star, and exclaim, HOh! see the falling star. I 'wondei
why it fell." -

Why the Cock Crows at F our O'clock
in the Morning
"Grandfather," asked Dannie, as he sat on his grandfather's
knee, before the great fireplace, "why does the rooster crow at four
o'clock in the morning?"
"Well," began Grandfather, "long ago there lived a certain
tribe of fairies about six inches high. Every night they would go
to the forest and dance in the moonlight. However, they had to be
very careful. for if they danced too long. until the day dawned, they
would become blind. But one particularly beautiful moonlight
night, as a small band were dancing, they forgot to be careful, and
the morning light stole in through the trees, half blinding many of
them before they could hide beneath the leaves.
"Now, they were in a very sad plight, for even a fairy 's power
could not restore their sight, so they decided to go and see if their
Queen could not find a safeguard against the danger of dancing too
long. For the next night, they planned a great meeting of all the
fairies, to talk over the matter.
'fThe next night, the Queen held court under a large oak in the
forest. Several of the fairies had thought of plans, but none were
"At last, the Queen herself said that she had an idea. She
would go and ask Mr. Cockletoo fthe rooster at Mr. Brown's farm
yardl to crow at four o'clock in the morning, just before daybreak,
so that the fairies could go safely to their homes.
HAH agreed that this was a very good plan. The Queen at
once flew off to ask the rooster.
"The rooster, when asked, agreed to crow at the proper time.
'tThe next two nights, the rooster crowed as he had been asked.
The third night, however, he was so sleepy that he failed to awaken,
and, of course, the fairies did not know how late it was getting.
Suddenly, to their horror, the low-hanging moon disappeared be-
hind the distant hills, and they saw daylight. They quickly covered
their faces, but they were too late. Those who had been half blind
before, now became totally blind, and the others half blind.
"They went and told their Queen at once. She was very angry,
and flew to see the rooster.
"Mr. Cockletoo looked very sheepish when the Queen told him
