This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1869 Excerpt: .Hold out your wallet, and I will fill it with them; but only on this condition: --All shall be gold that falls into the wallet; but if any of it falls out of the wallet to the ground, it shall all become dust. Consider this well. I have warned you beforehand. I shall keep strictly to my compact. Your wallet is old; don t overload it beyond its powers. Our Beggar is almost too overjoyed to breathe. He scarcely feels the ground beneath his feet. He opens his wallet, and with generous hand a golden stream of ducats is poured into it. The wallet soon becomes rather heavy. Is that enough? Not yet. Isn t it cracking? Never fear. Consider, you re quite a Croesus. Just a little more; just add a handful. There, it s full. Take care: the wallet is going to burst. Just a little bit more. But at that moment the wallet split; the treasure fell through, and turned to dust; and Fortune disappeared. The Beggar had nothing but his empty wallet, and remained as poor as before. THE CUCKOO AND THE EAGLE. HE Eagle promoted a Cuckoo to the rank of a Nightingale. The Cuckoo, proud of its new position, seated itself proudly on an aspen, and began to exhibit its musical talents. After a time, it looks round. All the birds are flying away, some laughing at it, others abusing it. Our Cuckoo grows angry, and hastens to the Eagle with a complaint against the birds. Have pity on me! it says. According to your command, I have been appointed Nightingale to these woods, and yet the birds dare to laugh at my singing. My friend, answers the Eagle, I am a king, but I am not God. It is impossible for me to remedy the cause of your complaint. I can orde. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781231249710

According to your command, I have been appointed Nightingale to these woods, and yet the birds dare to laugh at my singing. My friend, answers the Eagle, I am a king, but I am not God. It is impossible for me to remedy the cause of your complaint. I can order a Cuckoo to be styled a Nightingale; but to make a Nightingale out of a Cuckoo--that I cannot do. THE ASS. PEASANT had an Ass which seemed to behave itself so discreetly that he could not praise it too highly. But, in order that it might not get lost in the forest, our peasant tied a bell round its neck. On this our Ass, who had evidently heard a great deal of talk about decorations, became puffed up, began to grow proud and conceited, and looked upon itself as a very important gentleman. But its new rank proved ruinous to the Ass, poor thing!--a fact which may serve as a lesson for others besides asses. I ought to tell you beforehand that the Ass was never over-honest; but until it got its bell everything went smoothly with it. If it made its way into a field of rye or oats, or into a garden, it ate what it wanted, and then got out again quiedy. But now it is a very different story with him. Whenever our illustrious gentleman trespasses, the bell which now adorns his neck goes with him, and rings an incessant peal. Everyone looks out to see what it is. Here, one man, seizing a bludgeon, drives our poor beast out of his rye-field or his garden; and there, another, who owns a field of oats, no sooner hears the sound of the bell, than he catches up a stake, and begins thrashing the unfortunate animal s flanks. So that by the autumn our poor grandee is half dead: the Ass has nothing left but skin and. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781236475992

According to your command, I have been appointed Nightingale to these woods, and yet the birds dare to laugh at my singing. My friend, answers the Eagle, I am a king, but I am not God.

So that by the autumn our poor grandee is half dead: the Ass has nothing left but skin and. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781236475992
