Aunt Este's Stories For Children My dear little ones: And how do you like the Mother Goose tales? I hope you like them very much. Don't you think Mother Goose surely must have been a queer old soul to write such funny tales? And now hark to the story of HUSH A-BYE BABY. Have you little girls ever sang this song to your dollies? But I know you have—Just listen. Xow can't you Just see Dolly falling to sleep to those words? Well, there was once a time when Hush a-bye Baby Just loved her tree-top home. She was a good little baby—and very seldom cried. But why should she have cried? For wasn't her bed room the beautiful green tree with its brown bark walls, and its little windows all different shapes, formed by the space between the leaves? And didn't she always have plenty of fresh air? And didn't she hear the sweetest lullabies sung to her from the mouths of many, many birds? There was robin who used to come along and sing his little song for her; for he pitied this Hush a bye Baby all alone up there on the tree top. There was tiny wren who stopped to twitter to her as she passed by, Just to see her smile. So you see she had plenty of music for such a little tot. So for a long time she was satisfied up there In the tree tops, this Hush a-bye Baby. But one day she got to thinking, and what do you suppose she thought about? Well, It Just seemed to strike her all at once that she was out of place. That she did not belong up there. The little birds had their nests and their mothers. The,little leaves belonged to old Mother Tree. The airy, fairy breezes were the children of old Motiier Wind. But to whom did she belong? Well, it Just seemed to no one. And the more she thought, the more dissatisfied she became, and the more she felt that she did not belong in that cradle up in the tree top.

It Is one "of the best musical organizations In the upper end of the county. Suddenly she began to make a noise. It was a queer little "la-la" noise. Robin did not like it and neither did his birdies. Tiny wren was quite provoked because. It wakened up her little ones. The nice leaves shook with displeasure when they heard that funny "la-la." "What sort of a noise is that?".pne and all asked. "We are not used to such queer sounds. It Isn't a happy sound such as we want up here In the tree top. It is a miserable one." ' But no matter how often they asked they could get no ans wer from Hush a-bye Baby but "la-la," which each time became more miserable and louder. Well, the commotion grew and grew up there on that tree top. Finally the wind blew, "00-00-oo." said he, and the tree top shook, and the leaves shook, and that little baby's cradle there in the fork of the tree top shook, and shook and shook—until Down tumbled Hush a-bye. Baby and all!" And what is the end of the hush a-bye story, dear little ones? Well, I shall tell you. That dear little baby up there In the tree top fell right Into a dear little wooden cradle In somebody's home, and then she was satisfied, and fell to sleep—for she knew she had found her home. She belonged with people on level ground and not up a tree top with birds. And that is why she had cried the "la-la" cry. But soon as she was dropped to earth into the dear little wooden cradle, some one took and dressed her In pretty white clothes, and put little warm socks on her feet and gave her a bath In nice warm water, and tucked her up in warm blankets—and best of all gave her a mother to fondle' her and'love her and kiss her. And now dear little ones if you happen to have a hush a-bye baby in your house and you ever hear her cry "la-la" you may Just know that she is thinking of the times she lived on a tree top. and perhaps imagines she Is still there—for as soon as mother picks her up and holds her tight, she cuddles right down and stops, does she not? —Which shows she Is glad the wind blew, and she fell down, down, down to mother and sisters and brothers. And if you have not a little hush a-bye baby, I surely hope the wind will soon blow again—and right down Into your homes and hearts there will tumble "The Hush a-bye Baby and all." £*>vlngly, AUNT ESTE.
