As the children grew to womanhood,
the fairy favor given to Mereia became
more and more precious in the eyes ol
herself and her parent.-. She hail
beauty, grace, wit and acconipli-hment

admiration. She was tall and stately,

and she wa- modest and gentle, and

and beautiful Mereia. Nevertheless,
the fairy gilt- were not without their
peculiar chatm. Tho veil which tho
fairy had thrown over her face, though
invisible, yet cat a fa-ciiiating softness ,

in the palace, and Mereia rushed in pale
with affright. Tho prince had been
brought home badly wounded, and all

she bad seen was the prince : but Allette
told her that she had not seen tho man's

Mereia about the aid -be had rendered

rood and was too mode-t to boast.

would not permit, as his son'- wounds
