When you have grown up iiimoiik fairies,
mill hnvr known thorn well, mill lime
known that they loved you, it In liurtl to
liavo jour father and mother suddenly
tnovu to America. Kverybody knows that
there nr no fairies at all In the ihiw w int

erny knew that, lltthi as h!i knew of tlio
great desolate world hIio was wandering
nhoutln. Shu knew uany fairies around
Inulsklllon. From this time her mother
had (lrst told her about W.i (airy god
mother who I'.ail ilouo ho much 'or her, she
had loved the. wee people, a no when tlio
other children had gathered together for
their games Norah had always stolen
away into tlio groves and dells she knew
ho well to talk with her little friends. Shu
had never quite seen them, though some
times she almost had, nnd she had many a
time found their footprints, and had heard
their faint sours plainly whenever site lay
on the fragrant grass with her eye closed.
And she knew her godmother loved her,
for the .Melneriiys were poor and many a
choice tritlo eame to Norah which her fa
ther could notulToid to buy, and there was
many a cake of wheateu bread that neither
father nor mother would eat lest the fairy
godmother should ho lingered.
Uut the j ear of thu famine came, and nil
manner of sorrows fell on all tlio people
around, ho that those who could, lied from
the homes they could not keep, and Mo
Iucrny was one.
"l'raise God! we havo a little hoard put
by, Kilen," he said to tho wife, "an' wo
have good health and stren'th. Av we
shtay here we'll havo none o' thitu three
in 11 year, for the bltthur had times is come
to th ouid couiithry, an' many a nelgh
bcr'll havo uayther bit nor sup afore the
wintlior. I Jest we'd go t' Amerlky whiles
wo can, for, pralsu (Jodl nayther wan o' us
c'd kape a penny put by an' tho neighbors
Anil Norah cried and said good-by to the
fairies with tier little heart breaking, and
went with father and mother on tho grout
ship that sailed so many days to the west.
And still westward for many days tnoro
they went, in wonderful cars that sped like
light Itself, over hills and through cities,
till there were no more hills and no moro
cities, hut prairies of waving grain as far
us the ejo could reach In every direction.
Enough bread was growing to feed all Iro
land, and tho dear, good people at home
were hungry. Norah wondered that tho
fairies, who knew ho much and who could
do so much, should not carry some of all
this plenty across the sea. She did not
know till long afterward that they were
busy at that very work, and that whips were
loading even then with fairy gifts that
would boon gladden ho many Irish homes.
Stout hands and willing hearts will
make a homo almost unywiiero, and away
out on the prairie there was soon a little
shanty t hat sheltered tlirceBtrangers, lonely
enough in tho vast solitude, but happy In
ono another's love. Only little Norah
grieved for tlio fairies, and wondered al
ways whether thoy had forgotten her. She
was certain her godmother had not, and
alio linked her mother If she might not
pray to tho good fairy overy night after she
had told her beads and prajed to tho holy
Virgin. Mrs. Mcliierny said no. Prayers
were not for fairies; but she thought per
haps a fairy spell would work, even across
tho sea, if the good people had not forgot
tenand who ever heard of a fairy god
And winters and summers went by, and
Norah from the little slip of n girl with big
black eyesandpalethln features, grew Into
a tail, slender damsel with a merry heart
and rosy cheeks. She was shy as tho fawns
that she sometimes Haw on tho prairies,

Why wero tho fairies so far awayr
The Himiiner was waning when he wo'it,
and tlio strong autumn winds that weie
soon blow lug brought 11 chill that she had
never felt before, strong, and healthy as
she was. It should bo always summer, for
that was the time when she know him, but
the cruel weeks went by, each one coming
like an envious foe lietweou her and her
love who was not her lover. And the
prairie llowcrs faded, and the grass lost lis
summer color. There were no leaves to
fall, no trees to puton theirautiimii spleii
dor, but tho nights itrew long, and tho Inn
vest was over. It was almost November
And no word came from Dennis
Came Hallowe'en. All the wonders of
that night had been treasured up in her
small store of knowledge since slut was a
child and had played at Hallowe'en games
with the other eliildieu around luuis
killeii. They were almost tho only games
she plajcd with them. Shu had tried often

time had not come jet, hut as she had

shy to confess even to herself that she
might ever have a lover. Hut now
There wero ways that a maiden might
fl nd out at home what her fate was to
he. There wero merry games and strange
kpulls, and all spirits walked abroad that
night, and even tlio most bashful girl of

herself that she had one, might learn If lie
Hut there were no hazel nuts, no rowan
trees, no limekilns, no kale stalks, and
worst of all no fairies in this gicat western
prairie. Even If her godmother remem
bered her, what could she do so fur aw r.?
Something, though, must le tried. The
dumb achu in her hem t at Dennis' silence
