V far up in the Frozen North in the land of the Midnight Sun. There is a wonderful race of fairy Folk known a the underground people or the Little Otodle of the Hills. Of but they play queer mics and marry pranks these wee Brown Folk Clad in Dusky suits just the color of the Earth in which they live wearing on their feet tiny Glass slippers and furry Caps of Brown finished with a Silver Bell adorning each elfin head. These Caps Are possessed of magic Power which makes the wearer quite invisible to mortal eyes. So though one often hears on a Moor Light night a soft whispering and Low Rustle while walking through a lonely Forestor Over a Moonlit Meadow land strewn with one often sees by Daylight the grass pressed Down by the tread of dancing feet the night never sees the elves themselves unless he be Lucky enough to and either one of the Little Caps or its Silver Bell lost by some careless dancer. Now a Shepherd lad of Norway had heard so much of these Little Folk of the Hills that on one St. John s eve he made up his mind to wait for the fairy Folk All night of the top of a very High Hill which was their favorit dancing place. Who knows thought he. I Mav be Lucky enough to find one of their magic As soon As the night fell on this magic night of All the year the Shepherd stole away to the top of the Hill and lying Down in the very deepest Shadow he could find waited in silence for the fairy Folk. Exactly at Midnight the chiming of Silver Bells and a Gay mingling of chatter and laughter sounded Over the lonely Hill top then a Rustle through the grass and then a whizzing and a buzzing that showed very plainly that the Little Folk were whirling round and round in the dance tumbling and sporting in the Moonlight playing All sorts of merry pranks and tricks. The Shepherd could not see any of this merrymaking you know he could Only hear the mirth and Merri ment but All of a sudden something Cool and Slippery touched his hand and one of the Little folks set up a great . My Bell my Bell i be lost my Little Silver Bell you May be sure the Shepherd lost no time in slipping that Bell in his pocket for of course that was what had touched his hand As it had rolled from the Cap of its tiny owner. Now he could see the Little Folk running hither and thither in the most distracted manner. One Little fellow was in great distress. He peered in the hearts of the wild roses he poked his wee Finger into the Bluebell scup. And searched every Ade of grass. All in vain however. He could not find his Silver Bell. The Shepherd in the meantime knowing what a prize he had found was running Down the Hill As fast As he could and never once did he pause till he was Safe in his own cottage. He tried the magic Power of the Bell the very next morning when he led his sheep out to pasture and found that All he had to do to guid his sheep was to wish the Way y should go. And then ring the Silver Bell. A. Once the sheep would meekly turn in the direction he wish d. My but this saves me a lot of trouble and work said he. I will have to be Given something pretty Good before i give up this now the poor Little Elf who had lost his Bell was having a pretty hard time for not one Wink of sleep could he get until he found it. Thee. Too. By Laws of his race he could not come to the upper world in the daytime in his True form. So he Scurrie 1 Over the Hills and through the valleys of Norway in every form of an Imal he flew through the air disguise Das a Bird he crawled on the ground As a Little Green Snake How Iggleden the Earth As a wee Little worm and in the shape of a Man he even made his Way into churches houses and barns searching everywhere for his lost Bell. So passed Many a weary Day. And the Little Elf had grown quite thin and ill and his eyes fairly popped out of his head with weariness. But one Day it happened that in the form of a Bird he was flying Low Over a Meadow where a Hock of sheep was grazing. Some of the sheep had Bells on their necks which rang with a soft tinkle tinkle tinkle As they moved about. There s just a Hanee that my Bell is Here thought the weary Little Elf and in a soft Bird Carol he gang this Little sad song alas my Little Silver Boll pretty sheep if you can t la where is hid my Silver Boll. Toll me quickly now 1 Pray t have not slept by night or Dav since my Bell was taken the boy who was keeping the sheep heard the words of this song very plainly and Luck at last was with the Little Elf for he was the very Shepherd who had run off with the Bell and it was now Safe hid in his pocket. Just at this moment the sheep started restlessly to scatter about the Field and. In order to bring them together the boy rang the magic Bell. At the first sound of its Sweet tinkle the Little if knew that his search was ended but he also knew that he would have need of All his cunning to win the Bell from the Shepherd. He at once flew Down to a neighbouring Thicket and changed himself in the twinkling of an Eye to an old woman dressed in shabby ragged clothes who with sighs and groans limped across to the Shep Uci u. Bid you Good morning said she in a cracked tremulous voice. Can you Tell me How i can get to Bergen the Shepherd still held the Bell in his hand and As he turned to answer her the old woman exclaimed Well Well did Ever a body see such a pretty Little Bell and the merry tinkle that it has Why it takes the lameness out of these old legs of mine come my gentle lad i la buy the Bell from you at any of. No you wont grandmother said the boy with a laugh. Money could not buy my Bell. See Bow the sheep obey its Silvery notes and. Sure enough at its gentle tinkle All the sheep turned to follow where it led. And see How All care and Wor re vanish at its merry chime Why i have never known real Joy until i owned this Bell. I d not give it up for All the Gold in the perhaps the sight of Gold will do More than its sound thought the shrewd old woman and stretching out a handful of Gold pieces she said Gold will buy much Joy for Heyoung but will not give Back health to the old As the Little Bell does. See i la give you ten times this sum for the the Shepherd was a kind hearted lad and he really Felt very sorry for the Little old woman and he said no Gold will not buy my Bell but perhaps you can give me something Elst that will take its he Bega to suspect now that the Little Elf stood Here in the Guise of this feeble old woman. Certainly i can said the old woman and Drew from under her ragged Cape a Little White stick on which were carved Adam and eve surrounded by their flocks in the Garden of Eden. This shall be yours in place of the Bell. The cattle you drive with it shall always be fat and Well. As Long As you own this stick you will succeed in everything you undertake. You will grow wealthy you will be Wise and Good and you will marry the most Beautiful woman in the a said the lad now i will give up my Bell and May you Good Mother be As Happy with it As i have so saying he Laid the Bell in her outstretched hand. To his amazement she at once vanished from his sight leaving him staring at the place where she had stood but the Little White stick in his hand commenced at once to work its wonders. For these Little people of the Hills do not dare to lie All sorts of dreadful punishments await them if they do. They Are changed into moles bats snakes and All sorts of unpleasant creatures and cannot resume their own shapes until they have kept their word. The Shepherd rubbed his eyes in wonder As he saw his flock of Twenty sheep increase until it filled the great Meadow and his one dog turn into a dozen that ran hither and thither keeping the great flock in Ord or. His own rough clothes fell from him too and he stood in Rich garments talking to two shepherds about the care they must give his flocks and his herds. He walked homeward dazed and astonished at his own Good Fortune and in the place of his Humble Little cottage there stood a great mansion with servants waiting to do his bidding. Then. Too. And this was perhaps the Best of All he was Given Wisdom to manage Well All the wealth that had so suddenly come to him and kindness of heart so that he did much Good with his Money. Is it any wonder in View Cfall the stood things that came to him through the Little Silver Bell that the children of the far North love very dearly and Are always looking out for the Little people of the Hills?.christianregister.
