Cadmus, Phoenix and Cilix, the

leaving Kuropa to play alone.
Looking up from some flowers
she was weaving into a wreath, the
little princess saw a big white bull,
and although frightened at first,
the bull seamed friendly and she
mounted on his back for a ride. No
sooner had she done so than the
bull started off at a wild gallop and
plunged into the sea.
The three boys ran back to their
father with the news, and parties
were at once organized to find Eu
ropa. The queen and the three
boys, with a Mend, made one party,
and they searched all over the
world for many years inquiring if
anyone had seen, a white bull with
a little girl on his back.
They could find no trace of her,
and after a time, when the boys
had all grown to be men. Phoenix
and Cillx and the friend dropped

water, Cadmus' new friends encoun
tered a big dragon that te them all
up. Cadmus threw himself upon
the dragon, and after slaying it, a
mysterious voice told him to plant
the dragon's teeth. No sooner had
he done so than a whole array of
soldiers sprang from the ground
and fell to fighting and killing off
each other until but five of them
survived. They built some houses
and the next day they were to build
a palce for Cadmus, their king.
When they awoke next day they
found a big palace already made,
built of marble, with stately towers.
As Cadmus entered the hall he saw
the figure of a young woman ap
proaching to meet him. "Surely,"
he said, "this is my sister Europa,
who has come back to me."
But there was a mysterious voice
out of the sky, saying, "This is not
your sister, but a maiden from the
sky, named Harmonia, nd In her
you will find brothers, mother,
friend and sister to comfort you."
So they were married, and ruled
justly, for many years, over a
mighty kingdom, and children came
to call them father nd mother and
to make them very happy.

Here's How to Make One for
That Beautiful Baby, Just
as an East Side Tenement
NEW YORK, Sept. 15.—This is
the story of the little white crib
which stands in a room of the "box
lady's five-room apartment in the
heart of the tenement district.
All the children and women In
the neighborhood know the "box
lady." Her name is Miss Ixmise
Brlgham, but she is called the box
lady because she makes beautiful
furniture out of old boxes. The
box lady's apartment is called "Box
It was before the little mother
was a mother that she came to
the box lady with a strange, new
beauty flushing her face. She was
so happy and so wretched, was the
little mother, who was not yet a
mother. She wanted to have her
baby the most beautiful things any
baby ever had. What a foolish, im
practical wish that was for anyone
living on the Eas.y, 'Side, where
there is nothing but squalor and
filth, where hopeless poverty keeps
away the beautiful things of life.
Still the little motherelect did
not despair of having beautiful
things for the beautiful baby-elect.
The box lady was instantly sym
pathetic. Certainly the new baby
should have the most beautiful
things any baby ever had. The box
lady would tell the little mother
how to buy cheap things the little
mother's fingers could make into
a fine wardrobe. But there must
be other things. Ah, yes, a crib.
The crib stood on four stout legs.
It was painted white. A mattress
stuffed with shavings made the
bottom soft. There were four lit
tle sheets made from one large
sheet, and a pad and pillow and a
coverlet of pale blue outing flan
nel edged with a valance of cross
bar mosquito netting. Mosquito
netting made a frill for the top of
the crib and the coverlet was bright
with ribbon bows. A beautiful crib
—and the total cost was just $1.42.
The baby came to coo In his crib,
but the little mother left forever.
At the last she whispered that the
box lady was to have the crib when
the baby grew up. Today it stands
