THE


GOOD MAN OF THE MILL.










C HARLES, give me back my doll,
sir, said Jane; you ought not
to take it at all.
But I will take it, miss; and I will
keep it as long as I like, replied
Charles.
Then you are a bad boy, and I will
not love you, said Jane: and if you

do not give her back to me soon, I
will tell my aunt.
I do not care for aunt, said
Charles; for he was a sad boy at
times, and said things that he ought
not say; and just as he had said
that he did not care for his aunt,
she came into the room; and she
could not think why they were both
so cross; so she asked, Why do you
look so cross, Jane ?
And Jane said, Charles took my
doll from me, and will not give her
back to me; and so I told him I
would tell you, and he said he did
nqt care; so I hope, aunt, you will
make him give me back my doll.
SYes, my dear, I will tell him how

wrong it is to take without leave any
thing that is not his own, and then 1
think he will give it back to you, and
do so no more. Come here, Charles:
why did you take Jane's doll?
I wished to try if I can make its
eyes shut, said Charles.
But why did you take it when she
did not wish you to have it?








THE GOOD MAN

I meant to give it her back when
I had done with it, said Charles.
But, my dear boy, if you did want
it for a short timne, you did not take
the right means to get it; you ought
to have said, Jane, will you please to
lend me your doll? And then, I dare
say, she would have lent it toyou.








OF THE MILL.


But she said she could not spare
it, aunt.
Then you should wait till she
could, my dear. Let me ask you
one thing, Charles; would you like
me to take your new map, when you
wish to have it, and keep it as long
as I please? Would you not say, it
is my own map, and aunt has no
right to take it from me ?
Charles did not say a word to this;
for he knew he was in the wrong,
so he went and gave Jane her doll.
Then his aunt was glad, and she
said, There is a good boy; now come
to me, and I will tell you a tale:
There was once a man who had a
nice house, and a field where he





grew corn to make bread; and he
had a mill to grind his corn; and
fields, with .grss to feed sheep.










And he cut the wool off his sheep to
sell; and when the sheep were fat
and fit to kill, he sold them too; so
that he grew rich; and what he did
not want, he gave to the poor, and
they gave him the name of the
"Good Man of the Mill."

THE GOOD MAN









OF THE MILL.

And there was a king, who was
not a good man, and no one thought
well of him; for no one likes bad men.
Well, this king went one day to
hunt in a large wood, and in his way
to the.wood he had to pass the mill
where the good man dwelt: and as
he rode past the mill, he said to the
lords who were with him, Whose

mill is that? Then they told him
whose mill it was, and said that the
man of the mill was a rich and good
man, and gave food and clothes to the
poor.


oWhen the bad king heard this, he
was not glad; for bad men do not
like to hear of those who are good
and kind; so when he went home.

OF THE MILL.


IIe tried to think of some way to get
rid of the Good Man of the Mill, and
make him poor, and send him a long
way off, so that he might hear of him
no more. To do this, he sent some
strong men to pull down his mill, and
set fire to his house, and take all his
sheep, and cut down the grass and
corn that grew in his fields.
So when the Good Man of the
Mill had no home left, and no gold
to buy a new house, he went a
long way off, and had to beg for
bread to eat. But he did not beg
long, for God who loves all who are
good, saw what the bad king had
done, and did not let him live long;
and when he was dead, there was a

good king in his stead; who, as soon
as he was told what the bad king had
done to the Good Man of the Mill,
he sent for him, and gave him back
his land, and built up his louse and
mill, so that he got well off once
more.

OF THE MILL.


Do you think. Charles, it was
right for the bad king to take his
goods from the Man of the Mill?
No, aunt it was wrong; and that
king was a bad man.
And would you wish to be like the
bad king, or the good one?
Like the good one, said Charles.
Then you must not take things by
force from those who are not so
strong as you are. You can see
that the king had no right to take
the mill, that was not his; and by
the same rule, it is wrong for you to
take a toy that is not your own.
The Man of the Mill was not so
strong as the king, or he would not
have let the king take his mill; nor

is Jane so strong as you, or she would
not have let you take her doll. But
the strong are not to rob and hurt
the weak; if it were right to do so,
I might take all your toys and books,
for you are not so strong as I am;
but you see, I do not take them, for
I know they are not mine.
Charles saw that his aunt was
right, and said he would do so no
more.
