Reason he Sang one merry song after the other for the world and All around him delighted him. Suddenly As he Isy quietly in the High grass he saw a Light fog arise on the top of the Waters and the fog became thicker and thicker every moment. He closely watched this phenomenon and observed a most Lovely figure gradually emerging it Ori the fog As from a close veil. She around. Here Little Lake elves were dancing yonder Small ies were seated around a Little table eating Diin Inutile sea snails which were most deliciously prepared. Another set were amusing themselves by playing at Featherall with a Ball no bigger than a pea and adorned with the most Beautiful plumes of the humming Bird. Seppi would gladly have joined this play wore a Wreath of water lilies around her Long but wherever he stepped he drove the Little 1.1 . _ Black hair a Golden Crown rested upon that and in the midst of the sparkled a Jarge Diamond. She was Moro Beautiful thah tha picture of the Madonna in the Forest which Vas the most Beautiful thing Seppi had Ever seen. I wonder if that is like a Seppi thought to himself and had a great inclination to run away. But the Beautiful lady beckoned people away for he might have buried ten of them beneath his foot. And then his figure cast such a Large Shadow that. The company always sat in the dark when within Butew Steps of them and they begged the Day and with nil this Seppi became More Sor n o Row no Day after Day and Era merry eyes Efren a Loose character and stayed perhaps too a the conclusion the whole number of dim and sad he would almost have Given the tavern then he probably crossed a j question being now exhausted there ing of the Clear the Blue Ether and the High grass that grew so to verily upon Earth and so fast that he used to see each morning the Progress it had made during the night. In the fairy s Empire everything was Beautiful beyond description but he never could feel at Home he wanted so Many things that he bad been used to in the world Brown _ bread the berries he used to Pluck in the Forest fairy to protect them Froni that fearful giant of even his goats which i were wont to come at his life to pass another hour by the harsh Frozen mow Drift Between tie mown fairy Hod met him and he was constantly think was Loit. But the Young lid the whose thundering Seppi was very Voica they were so much j Call. Much annoyed that he him and said sing thai Beautiful song again could not play and gambol with the silly Little v my boy for that has called me hither and i will richly Reward you for said Seppi to himself As he lost All fear she Speaks us kind and so Friendly and i think she is Tco Beautiful to do me any harm folks and that he should appear such a fright to them the fairy who observed that he was annoyed conducted him to a sofa in the Corner and by a Wink commanded her servants to bring All torts of refreshments to her guest. As stupid people say that mermaids Are Apt to j and in Large Crystal bowls they brought Sweet and he Sun his song again and again watermelons All sorta Obe pitifully Peppar i really he said to himself the by some of the but he bad always because these were published in 18 0 Bott hit goatherd never was heard of again at first Seppi thought that the old Man was crazy but a Young Maiden came in. Who seemed to assert All her lather had said. Eighty a cars then had passed and this Ion time then had seemed to him whilst m the fairy s dominions. Dead pause. The interest had gone on increasing As the game advanced until coming to the last question it grew to be neck and neck at like close of a Nee. Or. Canning was evidently under concern Lext he should be foiled As by the Law of the game he would have he had not now solved the Enigma. He sat silent for a minute or two then rolling his Rich Eye about fairy would leave me alone for a moment. I j he could indeed no longer look upon the Clear would just for fun see whether i could find the scarcely As Many Days. If he Only had had i and with a countenance a Little and in a Little More patience a Century would have an accent by no Means Over confident he sex been paused and the Beautiful fairy i Trot have brought him Back to the Alps without losing her life in the attempt and now All Joy for him was at an end for Chrystal stairs by i came Down Here. Only for would not i am very Well Here and the fairy is so kind to me and love me so and just As i the fairy could read his thoughts Blue sky. With a pure heart and a Clear Cdr i enc4 for had he not become stained with guilt did not the death of the Beautiful fairy rest upon his mind he no longer found Joy in contemplating the mountains and the valleys or in the Bright Sunshine All the Day Long he until the fairy signi6eil that she was obliged to h in and had heard enough. I will n in give you a cup full of Gold Saml with that you can buy land hire people and have As big a Herd As your she said or perhaps you have another wish which you want me to if you Are a water replied Seppi confidently i would rather that you showed j which even the fairy could not provide for him.

When i come had Handy Seppi full Justice to the excellent fare fur he had eaten nothing All Day. His master moreover was a very close and stingy Man and did nut give his servants enough to eat. But although Seppi was very had never enjoyed so splendid a table before yet there was something wanting she said on Thi following morning. Seppi 1 Lay by the Side of the Lake and listened to must leave a few hours. Try and pass the sad sighing of the Reeds. Nay he even a night these in order that he sell i the boat head. A Turli t i.

But this was not so easily done seemed to have walked More than on hour already and still the stairs appeared to have no end. But every moment the fairy seemed to him More Beautiful he loved her More and More and it appeared As if All that j shone around him Only came from her eyes which were As Blue As the horizon he loved to look upon her hand was As White a Snow there a bread beneath the water and although All the viands were excellent they did not taste right to Seppi since he had not i expect to give you a Joyful it was might be As near As possible to the fairy. He her intention to swin Riv no new inc Vihlo to than ji.a.mn.4 her intention to swim As nearly As possible to the surface of the water and see whether no child approached its neighbourhood then she would coax it to the Edge of the Lake and quickly draw it Down with her so that her dear Seppi might have a human being near him to cheer him up again. Whilst she was Thiis waiting and hiding her self beneath the water lilies and Large leaves that floated upon the Pond so that no rays of the staff of to which i he had always been the Sun could reach her Seppi was walking used. I torn by restlessness and discontent. He now you said the Beautiful airy sad wanted to know whether that staircase was by " that you will miss Many things below Here still standing and secretly like an evil con to which you were accustomed in the world j science he Stule from the Saloon and behold above and which with All my Power i cannot j he found the Chi ital Steps which he had descended with the fairy about a month ago As he then dreamed that he saw her again floating upon the water As Hei had first beheld her wrapped in a thin Green veil of fog and that she again in All her Beauty and loveliness offered him her hand to conduct him Down to her submarine Palace. And he hastily arose to walk towards her but no kind hand now held him above the Cater he the Cool closed Over him. For a moment the Mirror of the Lake trembled and Shook and then it again became quiet and Calm As before. Claimed i think it must be the Wand of the lord High Steward and it Ctm Many of the company present said that this was the Only instance they had witnessed of these Cret having been preserved till the twentieth question nost gamed being finished in half the time. Dining Ai the Marquis of or. Ruah concludes at a subsequent Day this was spoken of. And it was mentioned that or. Pitt and or. Wyndhan were both fund of it. Lord Stafford Taid that the former had once succeeded in it when the secret was the Stone upon which lord mayor of London stood he struck Down wat Tyler in Richard it s time and his impression was that or. Pitt had triumphed at an Early stage of the a correspondence from Limerick us More in detail the present rules of the game which according Jcj this authority Are shortly these two persons usually a lady and gentleman Are chosen by the company who fix in private upon an article or subject. Two others Ard then chosen to Endeavor to find out what the thought in and this is done by asking Twenty provide for you. Why Why would you stay Here with me when you like it so Well among Mankind and in your pure Alpine air v but Seppi consoled her and said that he would willingly miss All Terest Riat enjoyments lobe allowed to remain with her and even now he would again leave his Home her if she were to bring him Back to the upper world. Then her face beamed with j of acid thought and Bis heart beat with Joy. Why did not the Good fairy have these stairs turndown As i begged of her i then these tempt ing thoughts would not have entered my head. But i Wil ascend a Little Way to see whether 1 cannot discover the Blue sky through the he said As he ascended higher and higher. But had not the fairy told him that he Couk and her Small Coil scarce touched the ground and Lay like a Lily in its Sandal.

He asked Ilie fairy whether she would permit him to Pluck some of Beautiful things and she replied t hot everything in and her nails looked like painted Rose leaves i her whole kingdom was Well As her Ourn. Then Seppi wanted to pull a Beautiful Rosei which Hung heavy upon the he took it into his hand he found that it was Only a work of Art Cut from a nil jewel and that be. It was the same Case with the great Luiis which invited Seppi were made of Sapphire the apples of rubies the pears of Agate and Emerald in Short All were made of jewels but though they were Beautiful Anil looked inviting Seppi could not eat them. Then a Shade of discontent passed Over his for there he had seen Happy children and could happiness. She now showed the buy her Tojeau not leave the place she must her flecks u.

Then Seppi took courage and said did you not Promise in payment for my song to Ful Fil my Dearest wish now there will never be anything so dear to me As yourself and there fore you must with me to Tho Beautiful Green Alps and always remain there with i dare not live by the Light or among answered thai fairy sadly and cannot there fore Grant you that As much As i Mii lit desire to do so. But come first Down to my dwelling and you will find Many other things worthy of your if you dare not return to the Light with me no one shall prevent me from staying Down be Low Here with you. And that you May see that i am in Earnest in my request just have the stairs destroyed As soon As we Are Down for without you i Don t wish to return to the Only once every Hundred years and then Only for one Day i May Rise above the surface of the said the fairy and no one but myself can conduct you Back to your Home. Therefore consider Well what you desire for i either Lead you up this Day before the Tun goes Down or you must remain a Hundred years Here in the depth of the water. And Iff even conduct you afterwards you should change your should lose my life As Many of my sifters have done before. When the first Ray of the Sun touches me before the Century is past i shall Jiin Dergo a fearful trans fortion which the greatest magician in the world cannot release me from. Therefore i Pray you abandon your wish which you May easily Rue afterwards. But Seppi Only became More anxious and excited by this reply and swore by Sll he held holy and dear that he would remain with her As Long Asho lived. Then suddenly 9 High Portal opened before him which led to a Large where Many elves were playing. A chandelier with More than a Hundred branches was suspended from the., ceiling and burned Blue red Green White and yellow flames these made the Saloon look As Bright As if the Sun Shine into it and spread a delicious odor All not join them or share their Joys. He found the rarest fruits but could rot cat 1 Hern and with the exception of the fairy no one under stood his language or could reply to him. True she was always hear him As Seppi had desired and studied constantly to make him Happy but1 Bhe could not succeed in it nay Seppi even began to be afraid of the wonderful things he saw every where around the mysterious Power of the fairy filled him with Awe. I Pray he said one Day to her con duct me from the orig facial and from the splendid Saloon to some Green Meadow where self conduct him Back to the Light perhaps she Only meant to frighten bin from the attempt he could not easily convince him self he wanted to see whether he really could not emerge into the open air and then he would quietly return to his place and the fairy should never know anything of this attempt. No he would never endanger of this Beautiful and kind Friend As Little As he would leave her for he knew How much she loved him and that she would weep her Clear Blue eyes Blind if he were to desert her. But. As thought so he had gained the last Steps and now nil his Good intentions suddenly were forgotten he would and must again behold the Beautiful Green Earth and the Blue with All his strength he pressed against the Crystal ceiling through which he entered with the fairy As through a door. The fairy who As 1 have before related was watching close behind for a child now suddenly perceived favorite the saw his he would immediately die if he had left her Domain whither he had gone of his own free will alone she saw that the door a Jorjan to move by the heavy pushes of Keppi and forgot her own safety in Hev anxiety to save him. Quick As lightning she flew to his Sid took him by the hand and herself opened the Portal so. That Seppi in an instant was above Waters. I. Greedily he breathed the fresh Mountain air tint lifted across the alas Broad Plain simple grass is growing such As my goats Ray of the like melted Gold through the eat there i will again sing All my songs to you All those songs you love so then the fairy sighed for her kingdom consisted Only of the great magic Garden and the Beautiful Saloon and she could easily perceive hat these two places did not suit her favorite. Portal upon lha poor fairy and with a dying Troice she sighed aloud. Frightened Seppi looked around towards tier and she saw How the of the Green veil she wore turned into Green leaves her feet and Golden sandals changed into yellow roots and her tall Beautiful for not once had he Sung so happily As at the i figure appeared As a Reed Shrub above the water time when he sat last by the Side of the Lake and when he now at the request of the , Sang one of his old melodies it had no longer the Happy merry sound As of Yore for Seppi s heart was no More Happy on the contrary he was sad languishing. And yet now he was so much better off than at the time when he was but a poor Goa Lierd and had to starve in the employ of the avaricious Sennica. What then ailed him As he had wished the was Al ways daily and by the Beautiful fairy who nursed and cherished him like a child. He dined every Day off five courses and from Golden dishes slept on a soft luxurious bed and be Neath a Silken cover. And Here in the realms of fairy land reigned an everlasting Spring and it never became night but. The Flowers and fruits were Only artificial and the Light was not. That of the Sun but of thousands of lamps that Hong upon the ceiling of the Saloon and against the Chrystal Walla and burned always. In the world above no one had cared for poor Seppi who had no parents or relatives and his goats at the utmost used at times to lick1 his hauls with their Small lips. Now the Beautiful fairy kissed his forehead played with his and brought him new and Beautiful presents every then the Waves took Seppi and carried him playfully to the Shore he rubbed his eyes stretched out his arms towards the Reed a few moments before had stood by his Side but which now raised its head in ithe Middle of the Pond and reached its thin trembling arms languishing by towards the Shore. A soft Wail Seppi never again Rose from the Waters and questions Filto its nature and qualities a fifth to this Day a soft sighing and murmuring is person is i dually selected As Umpire is heard through the Reeds thit grow in solitary the subject fixed on and. Lakes and Ponds and that is the endless Sor j whose duty it is to see that ill the Row of the poor transformed fairy for her lost favorite. The game of Twenty questions. Shall be . Are not to be Nich As will be calculated to mislead although the wider Are from the Mirk the More difficult will the guessing be rendered. The following game was played at our Cor respondent s House on a recent occasion Dur j ing the Queen s visit to and it will we publish below an interesting us bunt. Of fair illustration1 of the nature and Man a game Wych we do to have seen Ner of the game noticed before. It is Siiple easy and of great interest when properly conducted. To Many of our Young readers it afford an exceedingly amusing and instructive pastime far sur passing some of the frivolous devices for killing time now made use of. It a Well known Itiat the present general on of grown children Are Wiser thar any former Genera to in Ever was or any future generation Ever will be and Itiat no doubt is the reason Why we so rarely have recourse to such frivolous modes of amusing ourselves. But after All let us look Down with unmitigated contempt upon our predecessors the Cannings Hua and others were really respectable individuals in their Way and if they did play sometimes like our Little Boyo and1 girls ate and a sigh passed through the Reeds and Cut like a bitter reproach through poor Seppi s soul he covered his face with his. Bands and ran away so As not to sad Reed Shrub any More. Thus he finally reached the Senner s cottage which belonged to his master Peter Saibel. There he found an old Man of whom he inquired for the Senner. I am the replied the other. But what has become of Peter Saibel asked Seppi in astonishment. Why youngster Yon must have been drink replied the old Man the Saibel owned this Senner s hut Long before me and has been eighty years. My father used to Tell me the Story about him and about a Young lad and that both of them had disappeared on the very same Day and that it was just on the Day when the cattle were driven out for the first time in the Spring. Peter s body was found should ascribe the fact to the general a implicit of the world a Quarter of a Century ago. When or Rush the american ambassador dined with or. Planta in 1823, besides the two gentlemen mentioned there were a goodly number present of the celeb Milfs of Itiat Remote epoch including various members of the government and of the corps diploma Tique. In ova Day with such a company we should have struck to Oufa wine and politics but hear or. Rush it would not have been easy to assemble a company better fitted to make a dinner party agreeable or to have brought them a better moment. Parliament having just risen or. Canning and his two colleagues of the Cabi. Nef or Huskisson and or. Robinson seemed like Birds let out of a Cage. There much mall talk some of it very sprightly. J ten o clock arriving1, with Little disposition to Rise from the table or. Canning proposed that. We should play Twenty questions this was new to me and the other members of the diploma Tique corps present though we Imd All Icen a Good while in England. The game consisted in endeavours to find out your thoughts y asking Twenty questions. The questions were to be put plainly though in the alternative f desired the answers to be also plain1 and direct. The object of your thoughts not to be an abstract idea or anything so occult or scientific or technical As not to be supposed to enter into the knowledge of the company but some thing Well known to the present Day or to Gen eral history. It might be any name of renown ancient or modern Man or woman any work or memorial of Art Well known but not a Mere a Battle for instance. These were mentioned is among the general rules of the game serving to denote its character. It was agreed that or. Canning assisted by the Chan cellar of exchequer should put the questions and that i assisted by lord sat does it belong to the animal vege table or Mineral kingdom 1 answer. To All three. A Is it a manufactured article 1 a. Always. Q. Is it in the room i no. A q is it in this City . Q. Is it useful or merely ornamental a. Useful. Here the idea struck the questioners that it. Was a vehicle of some sort they therefore Is it Ever used As a conveyance 1 a it is. We then thought it might be a ship or per haps a balloon so we enquired Is it used As a conveyance by air Earth or water a. On the Earth. The locomotive now suggested itself and we next to me should give the answers Granville and myself were consequently Tot ave the thought or secret in common. And it was Well understood that the discovery of it if made was to be the fair result of mental inference from the questions and answers not of signs passing or hocus pocus of any description. W. Ill these As the preliminaries and the parties sitting q., what was the Power a. Various. This did not Ead us far towards a guess but we determined to come closer. So we queried Is fire Ever used in connection with its notions on some occasions it is. We now became certain that it was connected with a railway question which followed was q his it a Chimney t Have any of us seen it a. Do not know whether you have or not. We then Bejan to suspect that it was in some Way connected with the prevailing Queen s visit and so we asked Is it in Ireland a. It is we then might be Well to ask n Is it used for a special purpose j a. Yes. We immediately concluded that it was the state railway Carriage but to make certain Has it Glass in it v . _ and fifteenth has it soft to which the answer was it we guessed that it was the Royal state. Carriage of the great Southren and Western which had been brought to Ireland on purpose for the accommodation of the Queen. In concluding this memorandum we re turn for an instant to or. Planta s dinner to re Mark that the game occupied upwards of an hour during which not one drop of wine we drunk nobody giving attention to Diogenes while he discoursed of virtue fell a singing and everybody crowded to hear him. Great said he How much Tnora is Folly admired Utah somebody thinks that if nature had designed face to face on opposite sides of the table we j a Man to be a drunkard he would have own began the constructed hike a chum so that the we shall not give the details of the game i drank the former he would stand.
