and the Fairy Queen gave them a
trail d weddins ir. just such a beautiful
Kairy Carden ai U.is. c.n a lovely

pily ever after."
Betty's eyes opened very wide as she
looltfd around. "And is this a reaily
truly Fair carden. Aunt Dolly?"
"Or course, Silly, "n!t n Jack, with
his "You can't tell me anything" air,
as Aunt Dolly called 1U You know
this is called The Fairy's Garden."
It had' been a lovely i!ay for their
picnic, and luncheon over, they were
all seated on the erifs round Aunt
Dolly, who nad been telling them how
the pretty spot sot its name.
"Who's for a game of 'hide,' " cried
"I am. and I and I too," chorused
Jack, Joan and Helen.
"We'll hide and let Betty find us."
Sit on that stone." said Jack, "and
don't move till you hear me whistle."
OIT they ran. Aunt Polly following.
"I'll so and sit In the car." she callfd
I after them. Hind, only a half hour
' and then we must start for home."
! So Betty was left alone sitting on a
1 big stone, and thinking of the story
; she had just heard,
j "Ho beautiful it must have been, I
I wish I could see a Fairy Wedding."
"Do you really." said a sweet little
voice, and, looking down, she saw a
tiny glittering figure with white filmy
wings, swaying on a blade of grass.
"Who are you," she cried In sur
prise. "I am the Wish-Fairy," answered
the tiny creature, "You are sitting on
a wishing-stone, and I am here to
grant your wish. Tonight is the wed
ding of Fairy Prince Happiness to
Princess Rosebud, the Flower Queen's
daughter. I am here to take you
"How I should love to go," cried
Betty, "I'm afraid I can't, for Aunt
Dolly said we must go home In half
"That is very easily arranged," said
Fairy Wish. will just send a star
messenger up to the Sun, and tell him
not to move, until we return." As

AN'T stories about the great
Xapoleon come to mind as the
anniversary of Nie birth of
that wonderful little man ap
proaches. Here are two anecdotes
that are, perhaps, not so well known
Emperor Xapoleon, after one of his
great battles, gathered the remnant of
his forces around him, and proceeded
to compliment them in his character
istic manner, so endearing to the
hearts of his eoldiers. Finally Com
pany D, of the Guards who had been
In the thick of the fight, were ordered
to present themselves, and to the
astonishment of the Emperor a single
soldier appeared. He was bound up
in bandages and could barely walk.
"Where is the rest of jour com
pany?" asked the Emperor.
A tear welled In the ' old soldier's
eye as he answered, "Tour JIaJesty,
they lie on the field dead," and then
woefully added, "They fought better

evidence of his dislike for a beard.
In some anecdotes of the Russian
campaign there Is a story told of the
Ereut Kmperor and a poor but witty
barber, who hud occasion lo shaie

once arriving at a small village re

and baths. Napoleon wishing to be
shaved the villagu barber was called
in. Whilo the poor fellow stropped
Vs razor and passed it over the great
rnnperor's chin, he remained silent
and seemingly melancholy, although
performing his work with amu.inil
rapidity and smoothness. When be

him, remarking, "But. nu.n, why do
you wec.r such a nielancnoly face?
You should be happy to havo the
piivllege of shaving an Emperor."
"I am doubly happy, your Majesty."
"Then what is it that troubles you?"
"Alas, your Majesty, when I think
of the Kings upon Kings and Emper
ors that have died without knowing
what it was to be shrived by nie, I
am sad and melancholy."
she spoke, she raised her wand, and a
star appeared at the end, and shot off
up towards the sky.
"Oh," cried Betty, Jumping up with
"You'll see stranger thing9 than
that," said Fairy Wish. But come.
Are you ready. She struck the stone
Betty had been sitting on with her
wand. It opened, and there was a
tiny entrance to a beautiful pathway,
with walls of lovely flowers on each
"I could never gt in there," cried
Betty ruefully. "I'm too big."
"Look at yourself," said the fairy,
and a mirror suddenly appeared be
fore her, and she saw the reflection
of a second dainty little figure, wings
and all, only her dress did not sparkfe
like the Fairy's.
"Is that really me," she cried In sur
prise. "It really is," answered the Fairy
Wish, smiling. "Now hurry, or wa
shall be late."
Off she flew, and Betty followed, for
she found no difficulty in flying after
They entered an Immense hall, also
brilliantly lit, and Betty's eyes were
quite dazzled. As she got used to It
she saw crowds of the tiny sprites,
At one end of the hall was a raised
platform of . different colored grasses
resembling ai' handsome rug. On this
were two mossy green thrones, dec
orated with tiny light3, that outlined
"Here they come," whispered Fairy
Wish, as the great doors were thrown
open and the company formed two
lines down the sides, leaving the cen
ter vacant. First came a number of
little fairies dressed In gold, with
rolden wings, then flower-fairies In
pink; then fairies in silver with silver
wings, and then the bride, and groom,
the former, of course, all in white,
Vie handsome groom, in white and
As they advanced to the center of
the hall, they stopped, and a peal of
sweet bells rang out, that Betty saw,
came from a balcony formed entirely
of lilies-of-the-valley. A chorus of

sweet bird voices, and then two
groups of white plgeona flew out,
holding In their beaka a wreath ol
erange blossoms. Hovering over tlua
heads of the couple, the birds dropped
the wreaths, one on the brido s neck,
and the other on tho groom's.
"Now they are man led," said Fairy
Wish, "and they will be crowned."
Slowly they advanced to tho great
thrones, while little Cupids strewed
flowers In front of them. Aa they
reached the platform, the tiny lights
flew up in the air, and Betty saw they
were fireflies. They settled on the heads
of tha young couple, forming a crown,
while the little people sang and
cheered. The cheering grew louder
and louder till at last it was quite
deafening, and with a start Betty
awoke, to see Aunt Dolly, and the rest
all around her.
"You are a flno one," grumbled
Jack. "There we were waiting for
you to find us and all the time you
,vvre fast asleep.
"(ih, was it all a dream," cried
Hetty, in a disappointed voice.
"Y'es dear, you have been asleep,"
said Aunt Dolly, "but you can tell us
all about your dream as we go home."
