JOHN RUSKIN

him, when the same voice struck again on his ear. It was singing now very merrily, "Lala-lira-la" ; no words, only a soft, running, effervescent melody, something like that of a kettle on the boil. Gluck looked out of the window. No, it was certainly in the house. Upstairs, and downstairs. No, it was certainly in that very room, coming in quicker time and clearer notes every moment, "Lala-lira-la." All at once it struck Gluck that it sounded louder near the furnace. He ran to the openirig and looked in; yes, it io seemed to be coming not only out of the furnace, but out of the pot. He uncovered it, and ran back in a great fright. for the pot was certainly singing! He stood in the farthest corner of the room for a minute or two with his hands up and his mouth open, when the singing stopped, and the voice became clear and distinct.
" Hollo!" said the voice.
Gluck made no answer.
" Hollo, Gluck, my boy!" said the pot again.
Gluck summoned all his energies, walked straight up to the crucible, drew it out of the furnace, and looked in. The gold was all melted, and its surface as smooth and polished as a river; but instead of reflecting little Gluck's head as he looked in, he saw, meeting his glance from beneath the gold, the red nose and sharp eyes of his old friend of the mug, a thousand times redder and sharper than ever he had seen them in his life.
" Come, Gluck, my boy," said the voice out of the pot again; "I'm all right; pour me out."
But Gluck was too much astonished to do anything.
"Pour me out, I say," said the voice, rather gruffly.
Still Gluck couldn't move.
" Will you pour me out?" said the voice, passionately; "I'm too hot."
