A. THE FOX AND THE CROW
A Crow had the good fortune to find a large piece of cheese. She flew on to the branch of a tree, holding it in her beak. Just then a Fox came along and caught sight of the Crow. " I should like that piece of cheese," he said to himself; "but how can I get it? I cannot climb the tree." After thinking for a little while, he said to the Crow : " Oh, what a beautiful bird you are! I am sure I have never seen such beautiful feathers I If your voice is as sweet as your appearance is lovely, you ought to be the Queen of the Birds." The Crow was delighted to hear the Fox speak of her like this, and wanted to show him that her voice was no less beautiful than her feathers. So she cawed; but as she opened her beak, the cheese of course fell down. The Fox jumped upon it in an instant; and as he ran away with it, he called out: " Your voice is beautiful, Miss Crow ; but you are not very clever."

B. THE CROW AND THE JUG
A thirsty Crow found a jug with some water in it; but there was so little that all her attempts to reach it were vain. It seemed as though she would die of thirst, although water was so near. At last the Crow had a happy thought. She began dropping little stones into the jug, and with each stone the water rose a little higher. At last it was so high that it came to the very brim 1 and the clever Crow could reach it with her beak and satisfy her thirst.

C. THE DOG, THE COCK, AND THE Fox
A Dog and a Cock became great friends, and agreed to travel together. At dusk the Cock flew upon the branch of a large tree, and the Dog lay down inside it, for it was hollow. Next morning the Cock crowed, as was his habit. A Fox heard his " Cock-a-doodle-do !" and thought: " Ah, that is going to be my breakfast." He soon discovered the Cock, and invited him to come down, as he had something important to tell him. The Cock replied :" With pleasure ; would you kindly wake my porter who sleeps at the foot of the tree ? He'll open the door and let you in." So the Fox knocked on the trunk ; out rushed the Dog and tore the Fox to pieces.

D. THE LION, THE FOX, AND THE Ass
A Lion, a Fox, and an Ass 1a went out hunting together. Before long they had killed quite a large number of animals, and determined to have a meal. The Lion turned to tha Ass, saying: " Divide 2 the animals between us." The Ass divided it all into three equal 2 parts and modestly begged the Lion and the Fox to choose the share that pleased them best. This made the Lion very angry; he jumped upon the Ass and tore it to pieces. He then asked the Fox to make the division.2 The Fox made a great heap for the Lion, leaving only a tiny share for himself. " My dear friend," said the Lion, "who taught you to divide so cleverly?" The Fox replied: "I took a lesson from the Ass."

1 The edge of the top of the jug. 1a Or: donkey. 2 Eight divided by two is (or equals) four (8 = 2= 4) ; s. division ; opp. to multiply, s. multiplication. Two multiplied by four equals eight (2 x 4= 8). If we divide a heap of 12 apples into 3 equal parts, there will be 4 apples in each part; but if there are 5 in one part, 4 in the second, and 3 in the third, then the parts are unequal.
