Once upon a tlmo thero was a Ger?
man city that was overrun by rats and
mlce. Their sharp teeth cut holes
through the walls; thoy robbed the
pantrles and ate the prnin; the fright
ened the women and troubled the men.
So the people offerpd a large sum of
money to any ono who would rld the
city of them.. Ono day a rriati whom
no one knew, strangoly dressed ln red
and yellow velvot, nppeared ln the
city carrylng a beautlful flute made of
ebony and gold. He offered to relleve
the city of theso troublesome llttlo
animals It thoy would pay him tho re
ward. Thls they promised to do. Then
he ralsed tho llute to his llps and play?
ed the sweete3t muslc that was ever
heard. No sooner had he played the
lirst note3 than the mean little rats
and mlce began to como from Jthe
houses nnd stablcs. They fllled tne
streets. Thoro wero old rats, young
rats, old mlco, young mlce; every rat
and mouso ln the city flocked at hls
heels. He oarrled them through the
city gntoa an. far, far away; so far
thnt they never returned. When the
fluto player came back and asked for
hls money the people refused to pav
him. But he ralsed tho fluto to hls
Up. and. played a stlll sweeter tune.
And all the chlldren ot the city flockod
at hls heels. Then stlll playlng tho
?vronflerful tune, he led them out of
the city gatos and over tbe htlls. Where
he led them was never known, for not
one of them ever came back to tell.
So the city was left ohlldless, and thero
were no laughing hables ln the cradles,
nor merry chlldren ln the schools. .be?
cause the people hnd broken their
promlso to the "Pled Plper."

AN INDIAN ATTACK.

of tho Indlan country. "It's a pre.tty
good nlght for them thar rerlsklns to

aald shortly. And grasplng his gun he
walked out. The otber two talked a
little whlle longer, then went to bed.
About mldnlght the one who was on
guard came ln and roused the others.
"It ls Just as I thought," he sald, "I
heard somethlng gettlng over the
fence, then one'of the dogs growled,
and I thought it about tlme to move
The other men took their rlfies and
awalted the attack. They had walted
perhaps three mlnujes, when a torrlble
warwhoop rose on the alr. An ln
stant later a great rush was made on
the door; tt creaked and groaned un?
der tho grent welght, but lt dld not
break. Then the whlte's rlfies, louded
to the muzzle wlth grape-shot, rang
out. "Shrleks and groans followed each
shot. Twlce the Indians faced thls
terrlble firs, then retrea^ed ln con

that they went away, much to the
