RED RIDING HOOD ARRIVES AT THE COTTAGE.
“Poor Grannie,” said Red Riding Hood, “I have brought you some soup to make you better.” “Thank you, my dear,” said the Wolf in a weak voice, “I like you better than soup.” “But what large eyes you have Grannie!” said the child. “The better to see you with my dear, said the Wolf with a grin.

PUTRI BALAN BEGAN TO LAUGH
When the moon is round and full, if you look very carefully at the golden disk you can see in shadowy outline the profile of a beautiful lady. She is leaning forward as if looking down upon our earth, and there is a little smile upon her sweet lips. This fair dame is Putri Balan, the Princess of the Moon, and she smiles because she remembers how once upon a time she cheated old Mr. Owl, her tiresome lover.

The yellow frog stood by Coralie in a sentimental way, and held her hand in his.
“Don’t you have any friends or companions at all?” asked Diantha.
Oh, yes, indeed,” said the mermaid. “See, your doll has found some of them. Clever people – dolls.”
Diantha looked down with astonishment. Coralie had slipped from her lap and was sitting at the edge of the pool. More, she was sitting almost in the pool!
And grouped about her were a number of frogs! She seemed to be having a very good time. She was smiling hard, at least. One green frog sat in front of her telling her a story, to which Coralie and the other frogs were listening eagerly, and a very good-looking, yellowish young frog stood by Coralie in a most sentimental way, and held her hand in his.

Ah, winsome little April!
Who can resist your wiles?
Your darling face now wet with tears,
Now wreathed with sunny smiles.
Above the dull clouds round you
Old Sol looks down in glee,
While yet the pelting rain doth pour
Upon you steadily.
Have patience, little April,
He knows what he’s about;
The raindrops soon will disappear
And he’ll come shining out.
And you and he together
Will work to clear the way,
On which are brought spring’s blossoms
By your sweet sister May.

O Lady Spring, so sweet and shy,
The whole world smiles when you pass by,
The rippling streamlets dance along
And all the birds burst into song.
A flower-embroidered carpet new
Of lovely green is laid for you,
The budding tree, the perfumed air
Bespeak a welcome everywhere.
