TUB KIND OF THK SWAMI,
A Story for Children,
-hero was once a young girl, who was I
named Delphine,so good aud cheerful tbat I
she was a favorite with everybody. This I
girl had a friend, called Hilda, who was
also a very good child, and thoy loved each j
other dearly. In the winter, when tho I
snow was lying deep upon the hill and I
field, Hilda foil sick, and her parents were |
in great trouble about ber. She was quite j
unable to eat, was burning with fever heat, I
and shivering with cold by turns; she be
oame no better, though she had several
doctors and much medicine.
When any of her young friends came to I
see her, she would say: "Give me straw
berries ; which of you will go and find me I
strawberries, that I may get well again ?" I
If her parents said: "Dear Hilda, it is
winter, and thero are no strawberries' to he I
found at tbis season," Hilda would raise
herself up in bed, and say: "Far away, I
over the high hill, there is a green slope H
there I can see plenty of strawberries;
who will go and fetch them for me, only
one of the nice rod berries—only one?" I
The children left the room saying to each
other: "What nonsense poor Hilda talked
about strawberries; she must be dream-
I"". Wh j would go up that wild hill, and
ough those dark woods to get straw
ries for auy one ?" But Delphine felt
lbled, and Baid: "Who will go with I
over the mountain to seek strawber- I
? It will bo some comfort to poor
ia if she sees us start to seek them
a if we do not find." But no one
ild go with her, hut all went Btraic-ht
o Delphine fet out alone on her way.
Mall trodden footpath led up the great
p hill and down again on tho other side,
'Ugh a great dark wood of beech aud
She came to a place where three

wing which path to take, whenshesaw

tie bad a green hat upon his head, with a
feather as white as snow. His dress was
et the softest swan's-down ; he carried ao
ivory how at his shoulder, and a small
silver hunting horn hung at his side.
"What do you want here, my little dam
sel ?" hosaid, in a friendly voice.
"Ah!" said Delphine, "I have a sick
friend who longs for strawberries, and says
they will mako her well again. I know
very well it is winter; but I think I shall
be able to find something here she will like,
and I hope I shall not return empty
"Come with me," said the little hunter;
"I will show you a place where you will
find what you have come in search of."
He went on beiore, leading her through I
many winding paths, until the forest ap
peared lighter, the air became warmer and
more spring-like, and at laßt they o.me to
a grated iron door. The little man unlock
ed it, saying, "If you go straight forward
you will find what you seek."
Delphine would have thanked the good
natured little man, but he had vanished
so she went on a few steps further and I
came to a green slope. Here winter had |
disappeared; the sun shone warm in a
blue, cloudless sky ; the birds sang merri
ly, and, a few steps on, she came to a spot
where the ground was covered with the
finest ripe strawberries. How the good
little maiden rejoiced ! She quickly filled
the little basket she had brought with her
and started back to her dear sick Hilda. '
But somehow it happened that sbe coii'd
uot find her way back ; she came to a high
iron fence that surrounded tho wood, but
all her attempts to find the grated irou'gate '
were useless. She ran this way and that •
•till, no gate was to be seen. Then she
heard the sound of a whistle at a distance
and exclaimed, iv joy, "I hear a living
sound ; some one, surely, is in this wood
who will show me the way." B_B hasten
ed through a thicket in the direction of
the whistle, and suddenly beheld a scene
which caused her great surprise. Before
her lay a large green meadow, and beyond
this a clear lake, on which a number of
stately, beautiful swans were swimming
gracefully. In the middle of the lake was
a small island, and upon it a grand palace,
surrounded by flower-gardens and orange
groves. As she approached the shore of
the lake she saw a little man sitting there
who did not look so friendly as the little
hunter in the forest. He had a large head
with rough hair, aod a grey beard that
reached down to his knees. In one hand
he held a whistle, and in the other a switch.
Delphine felt rather afraid to speak to
him and stood at a little distance. She
soon observed that his oflice was to take
care of tbe swans, aod prevent them from
going out of the water. When any did
•o be whistled to them, and if tbey did
not obey bim, then he employed his long
switch, which had the property of stretch
ing out or becoming short, just as he
pleased. Delphine could see no one but
tbi* old man, nor any mode of reaching
tbe place; therefore she gained courage to
say : "Good Iriend, can you show me the
way out of this forest on my way home ?
The graybeard looked at her in surprise,
but did not speak ; he merely made her a
sign that she should sit down, which she
did. Then he whistled, and presently
there came a large Bwan from the lake, and
laid down before him. The little man
seated himself on its back, throwing one
arm around its neck, and away the trusty
bird swam with bim across the lake.—
There he alighted and went into the pal-
Delphine waited some time, curious to
see what would happen ; but she did not
feel afraid. At length she saw four black
•wans swim from a creek running into the
lake, harnessed to a beautiful little green
boat, adorned witb silver and precious
Iwels. The awning of the boat was
rmed like a pair of wings, aod shaded
ro small seats, and the bow of the boat
ided in tho shape of a long swan's neck 1
The graybeard sat there, looking much
ore agreeable than before. He gave Del
line a sign to step in. She campled.
ley then sailed gently across the lake,
d as soon as they reached the Bhore, he
nded her out of the boat, and led her to
In a hall-of blue and white marble, on
throne of opal, sat the King of the
rans. He wore a robe of pure white
k, bordered with swan's down, frosted
tb pearls, a goldeu crown on hia head,
d surrounded by numerous richly dressed
:endants. "What dost thou seek iv my
kingdom?" he asked. "I have f.iutui
what I sought," answered Delphine ; "but
I pray you to lot some oue direct mo in
the way home, for I fiud that I havo wan
dered in the wn ng directiou " "Very I
well," replied iho King, "it shall be done; ]
but it is the custom for all who enler this
kingdom to give a prest nt to the King of
the Swauis. What hast thou to offer?' 1
hast strawberries," rpjoincd the King, "and
I like strawberries above a'l things. Qive
I me thy strawberries, and then oue of my
I servants will show thee thy wav home.''
"Ala* ! I oauoot give you all," said Del
phine; "the s'rawberrki are for my sick
j friend, who must die if she has no htraw-
I berries, but I will readily give you some of I
I them." With these words she took sever- I
al fine strawberries with stems and loaves, I
I and tiod them into a bunch with the rib- I
bon that bound her hair, aud handed them
to tho King. "Thanks, my 'little dangh- I
ter," 6aid tho King. "Now go ; this man
will attend thee—do exactly what ho de
sires." The old man with the gray beard I
waited for her, and, when Delphine had
taken leave of tho King, he led her into
the garden, tied a fine handkerchief over I
her eyes, whistled, and at the same instant j
took her by the arm. She heard the rustling
of wings; she felt the wind blow colder and j
colder in her face, but was not conscious I
of moving, nor could she sco anything. At I
last the sound of wings coated, and tbe I
I man set her upon the ground. "Now, I
child, count twenty, then take off the I
dage, but not before. Preserve it c:ire- I
y ; it will be required of thee at its I
per time." She couuted twenty, aid, J
in she had taken off the bandage, she I
id herself stauding on tho bill, opposite
house of her friend Hilda, with frost
snow around. She looked up to the I
and thero saw a great bird, and tho I
grayheadcd man sitting upon it, with
arm around its neck. Then she has- I
d to her friend Hilda, who was still io
repeating the words, "Who will bring
itraw berries to make me well £"
"There they are," said Delphine, hand- I
ing the bunch to Hilda. Every one was I
astonished and wanted to know whence I
Delphine had brought them. Before she I
!!d her wonderful adventures, Hilda
ten all tbe strawberries. Then the I
eturned to her faco, and strength k> I
lbs ; and she said, "Thank God, and
elpbine, now lam quite well,"'rose j
1 was really cured of her illness,
i can say how the parents thanked I
no ? She was a truly good and I
rirl, beloved by all, because she was
fish, and was kind and thonghtful I
icrs. Ono day, long after, as Del
vas walking in the meadows with
ther, talking of her marriage tbat
be, she looked up and saw a black
n the sky, which became larger as
nded, and at last they saw it was a I
sua black swan, and that it was
own toward them. Thero was a
;b golden guaze curtains upon the
lack, and whon the swan had gent
ittd on the ground, there came

)U wilt celebrate thy wedding with

>od,,brave and pure a maiden, I
se thee a present iv return." So
he put a costly bouquet in her
t was formed of gold leaves in the
strawberry leaves, and the berries
ge rubies and amethyst, and tha
vere diamonds, pearls and opals,
this as a reward for thy unselfish-
I thy tender love for thy mother
ids." Delphine aud her mother
rdly thank the King, in their as
nt. But he did not give them
, pressing the hand of Delphine
io bade her farewell, and, wishing
nkeas in her new life, entered the
the black swan rose majestically
and flow toward his home, and
lisappearcd as a little spot in the
little boys and girls have gone
hill since, in search of straw
id the land of swans, but have
them. Perhaps they were more
i not so good as Delphine.
