BY mSS AUGUSTA V. HUBBARD.
There was once a man who
was so very ill-tempered that
people called4 him "Sn1irley."9
The children . of the town in
which he lived always got out
of the way when they saw him
cominig, and eveni the grown
People wer'e afraid of him.
One night vlenl "Snarley"
went to bed something stuck his
feet into a pair of shoes that
were very large and queer
looking, and the instant these
shoes were securely on his feet
he began to walk, and try as
hard as he might. he could not
Stop. He caught at the bed and
held to Ole railing Of the stairs,
but on he went. He had to hold
to the knob of the front door
and1(] made a grab at the gate
post as he passed out, but the
shoes carried him on at a. rapid

Ima into the connitry. As the
town disa-ppeared beiind him he
began to be greatly alarmed and
tried to turn back, but the shoes
took him straight on. He be

taking him. for he vas now at

"Snarley" wvas angry now as
well as frightened, for he had
never before heard a toad speak,
and that the ugly creature
should lanigh at him and speak
to him in such pert tones anger
ed him greatly, and he tried to
kick it out of the way, but the
s'ion 4)n the foot with which he
kicked only gave the other foot
a severe blow with its heavy
heel, which caused him to writhe
with pain as hie was hurried
"Snar'ley" was exceedingly
t iredl and very thirsty, and as
he wvas about to cross a beauti
ful stream that rippled over cool
stones and among ferns he tried
t~o stop and drink some of the
cool, sweet water, but the shoes
gave his feet a ter'rib~le pinch and
walked him through the water'
and on to the 'opposite bank,
where a little mud-turtle was
sitting on some moss. The tur
tle poked its head leisuerly from
its shell and called out in a droll
"Oh. Mr. "Snarley," this really

"Snar'ley" ground his teeth
with rage as he answered, "I'll
crush that shell on your ugly
back and grind you into sausage
wvith my heel," and he tried to
do as he said, -but the shoes
pinched his feet all the harder
At last he came to a large
house in the very darkest and
loneliest part of the forest. It
was the strangest place "Snar
Iey" had ever seen. A great
flight of stone steps led up to a
large door, and a kitten was
sitting on the lowest step licking
its paws and rubbing its face.
When the kitten saw "Snar
ley" it (luit rubbing its face,
"Oh, Mr. "Snarley," you are
, better than mice;
When the giant cooks you he'll
give me a slice."
"Snarley"' struck at the cat,
but was startled by a very loud,
harsh voice calling his name in
a threatening manner. Look
ing up he saw -what made his
blood curdle with fright. In the
d ior at the top of the stePs stood
a great giant wh<.se head looked
like a balloon. His eyes were
as large as b ise-balls and hisi
teeth were like oyster shells,
and when lie opened his large
mouth they looked as if they
could grin d 1 man up ory eas
ily. His hands were immense,
and in one of them he held a
knife that was as long as a
svord and as sharp as a, razor.
"Snarley" had been surprised
when the little animals spoke to
him, for it was such an unnat
uMal thing for them to do, and
he was so vexed at what they
had said aiitl the sarcastic way
in which they had said it, that
he was shaking with rage.
Now when this awful giant
s)oke he' grew chill with frightl
and began to t'eible with fear.
for the sho( pinched his feet
harder than they had ever done
1)eore, and took him1 up the
steps ) the giant, who grasped
him roughly by the arm and
gave him a push that sent him
down a long hall and hurled
him against a door, wiich flew
open, ld there he stood in a
large kitchen, where an im
mnCse caldron was boiling and
bubbling over a big fire which
burned in a large fireplace.
Two giantesses stood at a ta
ble near rolling out dough and
throwing it into the caldron.
They looked as terrible a's did
the giant, and they laughed
loudly when they saw "Snar
The giant, who had followved
"Snarley" from the door, grasp
ed him by the head and the feet
and threw him upon a table,
saying to the women:
"Here 1s some meat for your
The giant then picked up the
knife and felt its edge, all the
while rolling his red eyes and
licking his ugly lips with his
long tongue. . He raised the
knife, and was about to begin
cutting his victim to pieces,
when "Snarley" awoke from
his horrid dream, and so glad
was he that it was a dream and
not reality that ever afterward
his temper was'less violent and
he was kind to all children and
polite to every one, and people
ceased to call him "Snarley."
