Once a maple tree and a holly
tree grew side by side. The leaves
of the maple were fairly pretty all
through the season from spring
until late in summer, but the
leaves of the holly were prettier"!
The seed vessels of the maple put
on little wings in the spring and
flew away, while the seeds of the
holly grew until winter, and then,
inclosed in little red berries, hung
upon tne tree.
The mapple tree had been en
vious of the holly all through the
warm months,- because of the
beauty of its glossy leaves and of
its ripening berries.
When October came, an early
frost painted the leaves of the
maple in vivid colors. There were
shades of red and yellow and
bronze and orange mingled in
every leaf, until the whole tree
seemed like a big bouquet of the
The maple became proud and
did not notice the holly, except
once, and then only to say

and . glory
would come to me if I did but
wait. I pity you, poor holly; for.
though people liked you all sum
mer and cared nothing for me,
now they simply like you, - as be
fore, but they admire me." ;
"I am content," replied the
holly, "simply to be liked, if I am
liked at all seasons.
The weeks fled by, and more;
frost came, and the gaudy leaves
of the maple lost their bright
colors, and became brown and
withered. Then the leaves socm I
dropped off, so that the branches
of the maple stood bare and cheer- j
less when the winds of winter;
blew and the snows of Christmas j
time were piled in long drifts in
the fields. . . i
One day a merry group of chil
dren came trooping through the
wood, and one of them, a little
girl, stopped and clapped her
hands and cried: "Oh how beau
tiful!" Then they gathered about
the holly tree, and admired its
strong shiny leaves, holding firm
ly to their stems, with the snow
lodged on them, and the scarlet
berries hanging in pretty clusters
on the slender twigs.
Birch, alder, chestnut, and
maple- all were bare; yet ' the
holly stood with its holiday
suit of green, studded with gems
of red, smiling and cheerful even
in the midst of winter. The Chil
dren gathered wreaths of holly
branches with which to festoon
their houses for Christmas. The
maple heard a boy say that the
holly was to have the place of;
honor in a hall in which there was j
to be a Christmas festival, a scene!
of splendor. ; j
"Ah, yes," said the mapple, i
"the holly was wise. It is better
to be content to be liked all the
time; far better than to be first un
noticed, then for a season admired,
and finally forgotten. . For who
knows but he that is simply liked

and squeezed a drop of the juice

had no sooner done this than Mr.
Billy-Goat was changed into a
white rock. . , .
"Then Mr. Dog leaped into the
creek and swam across. Mr. Wolf
ran to the bank, but there he
stopped. The water was so wide
it made tears come in his eyes; so
deep that it -made his legs ache;

that he seized the white, rock and

might. It fell near Mr. Dog, and
