monly late hour /, s
when Dan Derrick \
set out to get some
thing for a Christ
mas dinner. The bell in the village church
chimed twelve, and the sounds came float
ing on the < ild. soil air of the forest.
'"Tis a fine night fur rabbiting, eh.
Rough?" said Dan to his dog, as he came
to a warren. "But bide a minute," he
His eye had been attracted by a little
mountain ash growing above the warren.
Being a young tree, it had not lost its red,
tutumnal leaves, and it was laden with

mas-tree for the little ones," lie said.
He pulled it tip by its roots from the
loose earth, and put it under a neighbor

Rough knew his work well. He raced
like a black shadow across the moonlit
waste of snow, to the nearest field of winter
cabbages, and there he silently routed out
the rabbits, and sent them helter-skelter
back to their holes.
"Drat the net]" said Dan, springing out
from behind the oak.
Somehow he had not fixed it firmly, and
the rabbits knocked it over and escaped.
Only one got entangled in the loose meshes,
"One wild rabbit isn't much of a Christ
mas feast fur man and wife and five little
ones," said Dan ruefully, as he threw it
beside the mountain ash,
"Ah, ha! I’ve caught you red-handed
this time, Dan!"
The poacher turned, and found a keep

"I’m sorry we've nothing of a supper for
you, ma'am," said Doll Derrick. "But if
you'd care to taste our rabbit pie?"
"No! no!" said the Queen of the Elves,
touching the table with her wand. "You
must permit me to provide a feast for you
this ( hristmas."
The t Me at onee became covered with
a sph ndid dinner. T! re were roast tut I f ■.
and Christmas pudding and grapes, and
nuts and sweets, and boxes of crackers, and
every good thing, in fact, that the heart of
man could wish for.
"Now," said the Queen of the Elves,
"while you are all enjoying yourselves we
will do our Christmas homage to the Lady
of the Mountain Ash. Strike up, my merry
hour little men, with four little harps,i
sat down by the fire, and began to make a
sweet, laery music, and the Queen ami the
other elves took hold of hands, and danced
round the red-lighted mountain ash. And
as they danced they sang.

He walked away, leaving
Dan Derrick in a state of
hopeless misery. This
capped it all. D.m was
a wood-cutter. But the
winter before his right
arm had been crushed
by a falling tree, and
lie bad lost the use of
it. With the help of^
Hough, however, he
had managed, since
this accident, just to
keep his wife and chil
dren from starving.
Now all that was
over. The magistrate^
would impose a line on
him, and, having no money to
pay it, he would he sent to prison.
What would become of his wife
ami the five little ones?

attempt at cheerfulness, "I won't

As they whirled round, t e
lights oil the mountain ash grew
dim, and about the tree a soft
^7 incense gathered, and took on
the form of a lady of wild, un
speakable beauty, clad vin vapory,
trailing robes. When the dancers
gave over, she was standing beside
the tree in the center of the ring,
and gazing at Dan 1 'errick. There
was a kindness in her glance, b it,
for all that, poor Dan's knees shoo,;
“Well, all’s well that ends well,"
she said. “Hut you were a very
bold man, Dan, to bring me into
your hou-e in so unceremonious a
couple o days atter.
He returned home by the way he came,
and picked up the rabbit and the moun
tain ash, and went to bed without saying
anything to his wife.
It w as to the merrymaking by candlelight
that they all looked forward. The morn
ing they spent in gathering holly, and the
afternoon in decking the cottage with it,
and I >an himself forgot his troubles in a
secret work of decoration. Shutting him
self in the shed, he planted the mountain
ash in a deep box tilled with leaf mould,
and clipped off a few unsightly leaves and
tied bits of gavly colored paper on the
branches. When the rabbit pie was at
last placed on the table in the full light of
the solitary candle, lie told his two eldest
boys to bring iu something which they
would find in the shed.
In the meantime his wife, Doll , served
him with some of the pie. Hut with the
lirst piece of rabbit that he ate, the thought
of his misfortune overcame hint, and lie
burst into tears, and told his wife what had
happened. She took the news in a very

to the mountain ash, which the bovs were
bringing in. "You pulled that up? Oh,

fashion. 1 linu nan a mum to stay you
outright last night!"
Dan then had a glorious inspiration.
"It was well for you that you didn't hurt
ine, ma'am," he said very respectfully, ret
firmly. "Look what I've done fur you
already. Some rabbit had burrowed under
your tree, and the earth was so loose there
that down you would surely have come in
the next gale. You oughtn't to have set
that keeper on me, yi i know."
"Yes; I'm sorry now for that," said the
I.ady of the Tree. "But hurry back at
once to tlie spot from which you took me,
and dig there and tal o what you find."
Away went Dan with a spade, and the
Lady of the Tree and the Queen of the
Elves began to talk together.
When Dan returned, carrying, with some
difficulty, a heavy sack on liis shoulder, lu)
heard the Lady say to the Elfin Queen:
"Yes, I think you are right. The motor
cars are a great nuisance. A quiet orchard
on the skirls of the forest would be the very
place for us."
"I know of a fine fruit-farm for sale,
ma'am,” said Dan. "And, from what I can
see, there's plenty of money in this sack
to buy it."
"Very well; buy it, my friend," said the
Lady of the Tree, "and plant the mountain
