THE GIANT'S HEART.
"Oh, then he won't hurt me."
"I am not sure of that. He is so fond of them that he eats them up; and I am afraid he couldn't help hurting you a little. He's a very good man, though."
"Oh! thenó" began Tricksey-Wee, feeling rather frightened; but before she could finish her sentence she heard the sound of footsteps very far apart and very heavy. The next moment, who should come running towards her, full speed, and as pale as death, but Buffy-Bob. She held out her arms, and he ran into them. But when she tried to kiss him, she onlv kissed the back of his head; for his white face and round eyes were turned to the door.
" Run, children; run and hide," said the giantess.
"Come, Buffy," said Tricksey ; " yonder's a great brake ; we'll hide in it."
