THE MAGIC SPECTACLES.

Clara, looking around. “I cannot see any better than I could before.”

“Neither can I,” said George, with some dis- appointment in his tone.

“ No,” replied the little magician, “ I know you cannot, and you do not need any aid from the spec- tacles now. You can see well enough without them. They were not made to help those who wear them, when they do not need any help, but only when they do need it. This is one of their excellent and wonderful qualities. You do % not want any one to assist you in doing those sums that you can easily work out yourself, do you, George ? ”

“No, indeed,” he replied. “There are a great many sums that 1 can do easily enough, and there is real fun in doing them when the answer comes out right ; and there are many other things that I would not thank any fairy to help me to do.”

“■Which do you like to do best, easy or hard things ? ” asked the spectacle man.
