THE PIG THAT WENT TO MARKET.
ONCE there was a family of five pigs that lived
in a nice little house at the foot of a steep hill.
They had been well brought up, and were so neat
in their ways that they were held up as patterns for
all the other pigs in the place. The eldest of these
pigs was so much larger than the others that he went
by the name of Big Pig. He took the lead in every-
thing, and whenever he spoke the rest had to toe the
mark. They were all very proud of him, I. an tell
you.
One day Big Pig went to market drest up:,in fine

style. He met a great many friends, and while talk-
ing with them forgot all about the donkey which
trotted off home dropping all the vegetables along
the road. When the four pigs saw the donkey and
the empty cart, they felt sure that Big Pig had been
killed, and they all got into the cart and drove back
to find him. They met him on the way, and he had
a label on his neck on which were the words PRIZE
PIG; and when he told his brothers what had hap-
pened, they said it was not worth while to grieve
over the loss of the vegetables. It was not his
fault; and they showed by their actions: that they
were prouder of him than ever.

THE PIG THAT STAID AT HOME.
THIS little pig would have liked to go to market
with his eldest brother now and then, but there never
was any chance. There was a great deal of work to
be done. in the house, and this pig had to do it. He
swept the rooms, made the beds, cooked all the
meals, and waited on the table as nicely as anybody.
He was as neat as wax, and said there was no excuse
for any one's house looking like a pig-pen.
One day the Home Pig sat in the easy chair read-

ing the news, when he heard a strange noise at the
front door. Some one was trying to get in! Home
Pig peeped through the blinds, and saw it was a
great black bear, but was not afraid, for all the doors
were locked. When the bear found it could not get
in, it went away .growling, and the pig was glad
and said it was never safe to leave a house alone.
There were always bare-faced thieves about, on the
watch for a chance to steal something.
Not long after this, the pig that staid at home
gave a tea-party, to which all the friends far and
near were invited. There was everything nice to
eat, and music besides. One of the guests spoke
a piece, and this little pig sang "Homel Sweet
Home 1" so beautifully that many were moved to
tears. Then they looked at their watches and said,
" Dear me I did not think it was so late !" and the
pig that staid at home bade them all good night"
at the door.

THE PIG THAT HAD ROAST BEEF.
THIS little pig was a good-natured fellow. He
never made any trouble for any one, but was always
ready to help whenever there was a chance. He

ran errands, picked up chips, scoured the knives,
and did whatever he was told. He could fill the
tea-kettle without spilling a drop on his toes or on
the floor; and was the best kind of a nurse when
there was sickness in the house. He tried so hard
to please everybody that everybody tried hard to
please him, and that is why he had more than his
share of roast beef. Some folks like pork and veal;
others like lamb and mutton; but this little pig
thought there was no meat like roast beef; and a
nice juicy slice was his reward for being extra good.
One day, when Big Pig had gone to market, and
the Home Pig was taking a nap, the Roast Beef
Pig smelt something burning. He looked in the
oven, up stairs, and down cellar, but found nothing.
Then he listened. The chimney was on fire I What
should he do ? The house might burn down I So he
ran and got some salt and threw it into the chimney,
and then climbed out on the roof with a bucket of
water-and by that time the fire was out. Big Pig
had seen the smoke, and when he came home he
heard the story, and you may be sure that this little
pig' had all the roast beef he wanted for some time
to come.

THE STORY OF FIVE LITTLE PIGS.


THE PIG THAT HAD NONE.
THIS little pig was very, very naughty. It was
really hard work to get along with him. He
would not do as he was, told, and that is why he
got none of the good things that were going. He
did not like books, -and would not go to school, and
was the most contrary pig that ever you saw.
When asked to be quiet, he would dance a jig, and
make all th6 noise possible, and was never so happy
as when playing tricks on other people. He did
not dare to act in this .way when Big Pig was
around. He knew better than that.
One day the Home Pig stood on a ladder to fix
a vine that grew around the house, when this little
pig came along and thought it would be a nice
chance to play a good joke. So he ran under the
ladder and made it tip over and the Home Pig
might have broken his neck, if it had not been for
the Roast Beef Pig who came along just in the
nick of time. Of course he had a nice piece of Roast
Beef given to him, but this naughty little pig had
none; and when Big Pig came home that night he
whipped him severely, and sent him to.bed without
his supper.




THE STORY OF FIVE LITTLE PIGS.


THE PIG THAT CRIED "WEE, WEE,"
ALL THE WAY HOME.
THE fifth little pig was a regular cry-baby. It
.was always in tears. It cried in the morning because
it didn't want to get up; and cried at night because
it didn't want to go to bed. There seemed to be no
way of pleasing it. One day Big Pig said he might
go and play out of doors; but he was not to go near
Farmer Growler's place, for there were bad boys
there, and a big dog that hated the- sight of a pig.
But this little pig soon grew tired of playing around
the door-yard, and wandered off toward Farmer
Growler's to see for himself if what Big Pig said
was true. He was quite charmed with the place,
and was admiring the beautiful flowers when a pet
monkey jumped on his back, and gave him such a
fright that he nearly fainted. Then the boys came
out with whips and gave him the worst beating he
ever had; and as if that was not enough, they let
the dog loose, and he joined in the chase, and the
poor little pig barely escaped with its life. Sick
and sore, it cried "Weel Wee I" all the way.home,
andcw.s so glad to get there that it laughed out of
one side of its mouth, and cried out of the other.
