The Hart and the Hunter


The Hart was once drinking from a pool and admiring
the noble figure he made there. ‘Ah,’ said he, ‘where can
you see such noble horns as these, with such antlers! I
wish I had legs more worthy to bear such a noble crown;
it is a pity they are so slim and slight.’ At that moment a
Hunter approached and sent an arrow whistling after him.
Away bounded the Hart, and soon, by the aid of his
nimble legs, was nearly out of sight of the Hunter; but not
noticing where he was going, he passed under some trees
with branches growing low down in which his antlers
were caught, so that the Hunter had time to come up.
‘Alas! alas!’ cried the Hart:
‘We often despise what is most useful to us.’

The Bat, the Birds, and the Beasts


A great conflict was about to come off between the
Birds and the Beasts. When the two armies were collected
together the Bat hesitated which to join. The Birds that
passed his perch said: ‘Come with us"; but he said: ‘I am a
Beast.’ Later on, some Beasts who were passing
underneath him looked up and said: ‘Come with us"; but
he said: ‘I am a Bird.’ Luckily at the last moment peace
was made, and no battle took place, so the Bat came to the
Birds and wished to join in the rejoicings, but they all
turned against him and he had to fly away. He then went
to the Beasts, but soon had to beat a retreat, or else they
would have torn him to pieces. ‘Ah,’ said the Bat, ‘I see
now,
‘He that is neither one thing nor the other has no
friends.’

Spelling : Androcles

Androcles
A slave named Androcles once escaped from his master
and fled to the forest. As he was wandering about there he
came upon a Lion lying down moaning and groaning. At
first he turned to flee, but finding that the Lion did not
pursue him, he turned back and went up to him. As he
came near, the Lion put out his paw, which was all
swollen and bleeding, and Androcles found that a huge
thorn had got into it, and was causing all the pain. He
pulled out the thorn and bound up the paw of the Lion,
who was soon able to rise and lick the hand of Androcles
like a dog. Then the Lion took Androcles to his cave, and
every day used to bring him meat from which to live. But
shortly afterwards both Androcles and the Lion were
captured, and the slave was sentenced to be thrown to the
Lion, after the latter had been kept without food for
several days. The Emperor and all his Court came to see
the spectacle, and Androcles was led out into the middle
of the arena. Soon the Lion was let loose from his den,
and rushed bounding and roaring towards his victim. But
as soon as he came near to Androcles he recognised his
friend, and fawned upon him, and licked his hands like a                                         friendly dog. The Emperor, surprised at this, summoned
Androcles to him, who told him the whole story.
Whereupon the slave was pardoned and freed, and the
Lion let loose to his native forest.
Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.

Spelling : The Frog and the Ox

ไม่มีความคิดเห็น:

The Frog and the Ox
‘Oh Father,’ said a little Frog to the big one sitting by
the side of a pool, ‘I have seen such a terrible monster! It
was as big as a mountain, with horns on its head, and a
long tail, and it had hoofs divided in two.’
‘Tush, child, tush,’ said the old Frog, ‘that was only
Farmer White’s Ox. It isn’t so big either; he may be a little
bit taller than I, but I could easily make myself quite as
broad; just you see.’ So he blew himself out, and blew
himself out, and blew himself out. ‘Was he as big as that?’
asked he.
‘Oh, much bigger than that,’ said the young Frog.
Again the old one blew himself out, and asked the
young one if the Ox was as big as that.
‘Bigger, father, bigger,’ was the reply.
So the Frog took a deep breath, and blew and blew and
blew, and swelled and swelled and swelled. And then he
said: ‘I’m sure the Ox is not as big asBut at this moment
he burst.
Self-conceit may lead to self-destruction.

Spelling : The Jay and the Peacock

The Jay and the Peacock
A Jay venturing into a yard where Peacocks used to
walk, found there a number of feathers which had fallen
from the Peacocks when they were moulting. He tied
them all to his tail and strutted down towards the
Peacocks. When he came near them they soon discovered
the cheat, and striding up to him pecked at him and
plucked away his borrowed plumes. So the Jay could do
no better than go back to the other Jays, who had watched
his behaviour from a distance; but they were equally
annoyed with him, and told him:
‘It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.’

The Fox and the Mask
A Fox had by some means got into the store-room of a
theatre. Suddenly he observed a face glaring down on him
and began to be very frightened; but looking more closely
he found it was only a Mask such as actors use to put over
their face. ‘Ah,’ said the Fox, ‘you look very fine; it is a
pity you have not got any brains.’
Outside show is a poor substitute for inner worth.

Spelling : The Fox and the Stork

The Fox and the Stork
At one time the Fox and the Stork were on visiting
terms and seemed very good friends. So the Fox invited
the Stork to dinner, and for a joke put nothing before her
but some soup in a very shallow dish. This the Fox could
easily lap up, but the Stork could only wet the end of her
long bill in it, and left the meal as hungry as when she
began. ‘I am sorry,’ said the Fox, ‘the soup is not to your
liking.’
‘Pray do not apologise,’ said the Stork. ‘I hope you will
return this visit, and come and dine with me soon.’ So a
day was appointed when the Fox should visit the Stork;
but when they were seated at table all that was for their
dinner was contained in a very long-necked jar with a
narrow mouth, in which the Fox could not insert his
snout, so all he could manage to do was to lick the outside
of the jar.
‘I will not apologise for the dinner,’ said the Stork:
‘One bad turn deserves another.’

The Bald Man and the Fly.
There was once a Bald Man who sat down after work
on a hot summer’s day. A Fly came up and kept buzzing
about his bald pate, and stinging him from time to time.
The Man aimed a blow at his little enemy, but acks palm
came on his head instead; again the Fly tormented him,
but this time the Man was wiser and said:
‘You will only injure yourself if you take notice of
despicable enemies.’

The Woodman and the Serpent
One wintry day a Woodman was tramping home from
his work when he saw something black lying on the snow.
When he came closer he saw it was a Serpent to all
appearance dead. But he took it up and put it in his bosom
to warm while he hurried home. As soon as he got
indoors he put the Serpent down on the hearth before the
fire. The children watched it and saw it slowly come to
life again. Then one of them stooped down to stroke it,
but thc Serpent raised its head and put out its fangs and
was about to sting the child to death. So the Woodman
seized his axe, and with one stroke cut the Serpent in two.
‘Ah,’ said he,
‘No gratitude from the wicked.’

A Kid was perched up on the top of a house, and looking down saw a Wolf passing under him. Immediately He began to revile and attack his enemy. ‘Murderer and thief,’ he cried, ‘what do you here near honest folks’
houses? How dare you make an appearance where your vile deeds are known?’ ‘Curse away, my young friend,’ said the Wolf.
‘It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.
