At this question FaimMlca. shrugged her shoul

King that one gold alecv* and one of silver would
never do; they would not mutch.
"And why need tl.oy match, pray?" asked the
kir.p. Indifferently, repressing a yawn; the discus
sion wearied him; "for our part we are not *o Bet

And. full of pleasure In this new thought, he

Now, Fantastlca was as changeable as the wind.
The Idea of the variegated sleeves commended itself
to her mind also. After a.!, no gown at the feto
would resemble her own She pondered for a mo
ment, and the little man was quick to seize his op
portunity.
He sprang to his feet, r.nc! with trembling fingers
opened the box. From lnnumerabl« wrappings of
silver paper he drew forth the Princess Royals
cominp-of-age gown, and shook It out before the
eyes of the assembled court.
A murmur of admiration arose from all 6ldes.
It was more like a rosy-tipped cloud, mingled
with moonshine, than anything In the shape of a
gown, and It shimmered softly In the light, while
the Bilver glean of Its one sleeve caught the atten
tion of the court.
It was ft marvel of beauty, ani the ladles In
waiting forgave the court dressmaker many of his
errors In consequence of his skill.
The gown was indre.l a marvel of loveliness, and
the r>Hy was that Kar.tastica should be so un

could make the pet dog howl to. Just nt this sec

th» drive, the elephant came Into view, walking
slowly along. The earth trembled slightly as It
came. The servants fled In ail directions and did
not wonder that the dog bowled, while her father
stood as If petrified with amazement, too surprised
to move.
The elephant stopped before fhe house, and
Harold opened the little trap door, and out stepped
Cherry Plossom. This surprise was one too many
for the old man, and he dropped Into a chaJr,

trembling with fright. She went to her father, and.
putting her arms around his neck, poured Into
his bewildered enr all the queer things that had
happened. In the mean time Harold helped Pink
Cheeks and lone to descend, and by this time
Cherry Blossom's father was over his surprise and
fright, and went to meet Harold and Tone with
open arms and bade them welcome to his house.
It Is DMdlHi to dwrll on the good time they had
and how they extended their visit from day to day
until they had been there a week, and how ea»-h
day they saw something new and interesting, as
Cherry blossoms father devoted his whole time to
them. Through his Influence they were presented
at court, .:nd the Emperor, Empress and their
retinue wrre so interested in what they heard that
they did Cherry F.lossom's father the honor of call-
In* at his house to Inspect the electric elephant.
Harold gave them all a r!d<» in it and showed
thorn how easily It was run. Then the Emperor. In
return, presented him with a medal of the Clack
Dragon, and gave a lar^e duck catching party for
him. which pleased Harold greatly, for he had
h»ard what sport It wai to try to catch the du'-ks
in nets. instead of shooting them, as we do In
i ri;a. The party was a great success, as well
as the supper, served In true Japanese) style, that
was given afterward for them in the palace.
The Empress prese- lone with a complete
Japanese costume of *:'.:•:. h.iiidscrr.ely err. Oroide red
m gold and silver, and the Emperor gave Harold a
peculiar, ancient looking ?wrrd. with Jewels set In
the handle. Harold HtlUWd the favor by giving
the Emperor an emerald sipnet rtrg; and the E..-.
preps a rr.aimifi^nt strlns of pearls which he had
selected from those »hi h bi ar/l Ion» had gath

How many of the little men ar.d women can
recognise the trees In winter? Perhaps they think
like the majority of grrown up peop>. that they
are all alike when they have lost their summer
dress, but the leaves Jo not make the tree any
more than clothes make the man. and the leafless
trees are. even laa*. like one another than when they
are covered with foliage. Ism or fruit. T..?y

really want to know them we must study them at
