STORY of the FIRST of the FAIRIES.or WIDEAWAKE TO-B'Ap
. Sho was unquestionably tuc la&t of
the ralrlcs; all the others had disap
peared one by one for fairies pass
away Just oh fleM marshals do, and
now uo new ones nro created. Tho
old fairies, then, had perished In JHo
courso of time, one having been killed
In a quaiiel with a rival; another hav
ing come to a sad end thiough love of
a mortal, and vnrlous others having
been statu by progress; bo, one by one,
the old fairies had all vanished and
tho few Biirvlvors divided their piop
orty among them.
The last of the fairies lived In tho
heart of a Thurlnglan forest. (Tho
densest forests aro usually to bo found
In Thurlngla.) From time to time she
wns visited by n dwarf, who told her
of the death of ono of her sisters and
brought her her share of tho property
which bad belonged to t.ic deceased;
as a result, talismans, magic wands,
enchanted boxes, and all the other nec
essary occessorles of her profession
were heaped In piles along the cntlrit
length of her rav.
At last a deputation of elfs called
innd Informed her that the last of her
eocvals had passed away, and then
she knew that sho Vas the last of thn
fairies. As sho had never left the
forest, she felt neither pioud nor
melancholy at the news Hint sho had
become Queen of Fairyland. After all,
sho had no oue to reign over but her
self, and If It Is difficult to obey It Is
still more difficult to commnnd.
Sometimes she visited her only
friend, nn old genie, who wns the guar
dlan of the earth's secrets. Then they
talked about thu'thtngs which Inteiest
cd them; for example, about tho voca
tion of the supernatural personago who
has no future, about the histories ot
celebrated enchanters and about tho
best methods of making aphlltcr. Tho
genlo had written n "Complete Gonlo'l
Handbook," which wns regarded as an
authoiltntlve work. At sunrise thn
fairy went back to sleep In her own
cave. Sometimes the old genlo United
her there and cxnlnlnod her collection
of talismans, which ho criticised. On
such occasions they exchanged tnliH
mans and other things with each other,
and for seeial centuries they carried
on this peaceful method or'oliig bus
iness. At Inst, one day, the queen, who hail
no kingdom, went to her old filcnd
and said to lilm:
