THE LITTLE HUNCHBACK.
THE LITTLE HUNCHBACK.ONE day a tailor of Casgar was sitting outside his shop at work,when he saw a queer little Hunchback coming down the street, playingon a tabor, and dancing along in such a funny way that everybody wasamused by his antics, and the tailor was so pleased with the goodhumour of the little man that he took him into his house to supper.1
Now it happened that the good-natured tailor's wife had cookedsome fish, and while they were at supper eating and laughing andtalking, the poor little Hunchback who was hungry, and ate rather tooquickly, swallowed a large bone which stuck in his throat. Both thetailor and his wife were alarmed, and tried every thing they couldthink of to keep him from choking, but it was quite useless, and hesunk down dying on the floor.2
i~ -INow the tailor and his wife knew that if the Sultan's soldierscame round they should be accused of killing the Hunchback, sothey carried the body to the house of a Jewish doctor who lived closeby, and left it on the stairs, telling the servant that it was a sickman who wanted physic. Presently the Jewish doctor coming downin a hurry tumbled over the body and rolled it down to the bottomof the stairs. Then he thought he had killed his patient.3
To get rid of the body he carried it in great fear to the top of hishouse and lowered it down the next chimney into a store room be-longing to the Sultan's purveyor. The purveyor coming into the roomsoon after, thought it was a robber, and began laying about him with astick, but not seeing the Hunchback move, thought he had killed himin the dark, and afraid of what he had done took the body into thestreet and set it against a shop door.4
It was a dark street, and a dark night, and presently a Christianmerchant on his way home, brushed against the body so that it fell fromthe doorway on his back. Thinking it was a robber springing on himfrom behind, he turned round, and while he shouted for help, gave thepoor Hunchback a sounding blow with his cudgel, and brought thebody to the ground just as the watchmen came round the corner withtheir lanterns.5
The watchmen hearing the cries of the merchant, ran to the spot,and there finding that he was a Christian, and that he had beenbeating, and as they thought, killing a Turk, they instantly seized him,bound his hands, and the next day took him before a judge, who atonce found him guilty of murder, and sentenced him to be taken out-side the City and strangled, with the corpse of the Hunchback oppositeto him during the execution.6
Just as the cord was round the neck of the poor fellow, there wasa shout, and the Sultan's purveyor came running to the spot declaringthat he had killed the Hunchback. In a moment the cord was offthe merchant and round the neck of the purveyor, when a thin mancame tearing in out of breath, to say he had done the deed. This wasthe Jewish doctor, and it would have been all over with him, but athird man came panting to say that the dwarf had died in his house.7
This man was the tailbr, who would have been strangled, but'at that moment the Sultan came by, and demanded to be told thewhole truth. While he was listening to the story, the Jewish doctorwas heard to laugh, and presently shouted " The man's no more deadthan I am!" In another minute he put his long thin fingers downthe poor dwarf's throat and pulled up the bone. The Hunchbackopened his eyes, stared, sneezed, and recovered.8~ *~N,'*
10\--^OLD DAME TROT,ANDHER COMICAL CAT.OLD DAME TROT set off to the Fair,With her Cat on her shoulder, to see the folks there;The people all laughed as they saw them go by,Says the Dame, " I'll laugh, too," but says Pussy, " I'll cry."1
She went to the Dairy, to buy her some milk;When she came back, Puss was sewing of silk.She went to the Fish-shop, and bought her some fish;When she came back, Puss was washing a dish.2
She went to the Baker's, to buy her a bun;When she came back, Puss was loading a gun.She went to the Grocer's, to buy her some figs;When she came back, Puss was feeding the pigs.3
She went to the Miller's, to grind her some corn ; She went to the Glover's, for gloves very small,When she came back, Puss was blowing a horn. While Pussy at Croquet was hitting the ball.She went to the Fruit-shop, to buy her a plum ; She went to the Florist's, to buy her a rose ;When she came back, Puss was beating a drum. When she came back, Pussy stood on her nose.4 5
She went off the next time, and bought her a hat;When she came back, Puss was catching a Rat.Then off to the Druggist, but back again quick,For Puss at Aunt Sally was throwing a stick.6
She bought her some boots of a very bright red;But when she came back, she found Pussy in bed.She went to the Cloak-shop, and bought her a cloak;When she came back again, Puss had not awoke.7
She went to the Stay-shop, to buy Crinoline,While Pussy was trying to wash herself clean.She went to the Furrier's, and bought her some fur;Says the Dame, "Do you like it?" and Pussy said, "Purr!"She bought her a dress of a lovely sky-blue;Says Dame Trot, "Say, Thank you;" but Pus.y said, "Mew."
LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD.
LITTLE RED RIDING-HOOD,ANDTHE WICKED WOLF.ONCE upon a time a nice little girl lived in a country village,and she was the sweetest creature that ever was seen; hermother loved her with great fondness, and her grandmotherdoted on her still more. A pretty red-coloured hood hadbeen made for the little girl,, which so much became her,that every one called her Little Red Riding-Hood. Oneday, her mother having made some cheesecakes, said toher: " Go, my child, and see how your grandmother does,for I hear she is ill; carry her some of these cakes, and alittle pot of butter."I
Little Red Riding-Hood immediately set out, with a bas-ket filled with the cakes and the pot of butter, for hergrandmother's house, which was in a village a little distantfrom her mother's.As she was crossing a wood, which lay in her road, she meta Gaffer Wolf, who had a great mind to eat her up, but darednot indulge his wicked wish, because of some woodcutters2
who were at work near them in the forest. He ventured,however, to ask her whither she was going. The little girl,not knowing how dangerous it was to talk to a wolf, replied:" I am going to see my grandmamma, and carry her thesecakes and a pot of butter." Does she live far off?" said theWolf. " Oh, yes," answered Little Red Riding-Hood, "beyondthe mill you see yonder, at the first house in the village."3
"Well," said the Wolf, "I will go and see her too; I willtake this way, and you take that, and let us see which willbe there the soonest." The Wolf set out, running as fast ashe could, and taking the nearest way; while the little girl tookthe longest, and amused herself as she went along, with gather-ing nuts, running after butterflies, and making nosegays ofsuch flowers as she found within her reach. The Wolf soon4
arrived at the dwelling of the grandmother, and knocked atthe door: "Who is there ?" said the old woman: "It is yourgrandchild, Little Red Riding-Hood," replied the Wolf, in thevoice of the little girl; "I have brought you some cheese-cakes, and a little pot of butter, that mamma has sent you."The good old woman, who was ill in bed, then called out,"Pull the bobbin, and the latch will go up." The Wolf
pulled the bobbin, and the door opened. He sprung upon thepoor old grandmother, and ate her up in a few minutes,for it was three days since he had tasted any food.The Wolf then shut the door, and laid himself down in thebed, and waited for Little Red Riding-Hood, who very soonafter reached the door. Tap, tap! "Who is there ?" Shewas at first a little frightened at the hoarse voice of the Wolf,6
but believing that her grandmother had got a cold, sheanswered: " It is your grandchild, Little Red Riding-Hood.Mamma has sent you some cheesecakes, and a little pot ofbutter." The Wolf called out, softening his voice : " Pull thebobbin, and the latch will go up." Little Red Riding-Hoodpulled the bobbin, and the door opened.,When she came into the room, the Wolf, hiding himself
under the bed-clothes, said to her, trying all he could to speakin a feeble voicef, "Put the basket, my child, on the stool,take off your clothes, and come into bed with me."Little Red Riding-Hood accordingly undressed herself, andstepped into bed; where, wondering to see how her grand-mother looked in her night-clothes, she said to her: "Grand-mamma, what great arms you have got!" "The better tohug thee, my child." " Grandmamma, what great ears youhave got!" "The better to hear thee, my child." "Grand-mamma, what great eyes you have got!" " The better to seethee, my child." " Grandmamma, what great teeth you havegot !" "They are to eat thee up:" and saying these words,the wicked Wolf fell upon poor Little Red Riding-Hood, andate her up a aa.few mouthfuls.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.A MERCHANT in an Eastern city became poor, and had to live in a small cottage,with his three daughters, who had to work for their living. The two eldest wereso ill-tempered, that they grumbled at this; but the youngest, named Beauty,who had a sweet disposition, tried to comfort her father and make his homehappy. Once, when he was going on a journey, the girls came to wish him good-bye; the two eldest told him to bring them some nice presents on his return,but Beauty, kissing her father, merely begged of him to bring her a pretty rose.When the Merchant was on his way back, he saw some fine roses in a grandgarden, and thinking of Beauty's request, plucked the prettiest rose he could findfor her. The poor man had no sooner gathered it, than he was almost frightenedout of his wits at the sight of a hideous Beast, armed with a deadly weapon,standing over him. This fierce creature growled at him fearfully, and askedhim, how he dared to touch his precious flowers, and talked of putting him todeath at once for his rashness. The Merchant then told him, on his knees,that he only took the rose to please his daughter Beauty, who had begged ofhim to procure her one.1
On hearing this story, the Beast said gruffly, "Well, I will not take yourlife, if you will return home, and get one of your daughters to come here anddie in your stead. I will also let you stay in my Palace to rest yourself untilto-morrow." When the Merchant went home, he told his children of his adven-ture about the rose. The two eldest girls took care not to offer to go to savetheir father's life; but Beauty in a moment said she would willingly go to thecruel Beast, and die in her father's stead. When she was gone, the proudsisters could hardly conceal their joy, for they hated her.On arriving with her father at the Palace, the doors opened of themselves:sweet music was heard, and they walked into a room where supper was prepare42
Just as they had eaten their supper, the Beast entered, and said in a mildtone, "Beauty, did you come here willingly to die in place of your father?"" Willingly," she answered, with a trembling voice. " So much the better foryou," said the Beast; " your father can stay here to-night, but must go homeon the following morning." Her father then withdrew, and the Beast took hisleave of her with so polite a bow, falling on one knee before her, that shebegan to think he was not so very frightful after all. Beauty tried to cheerher father, at parting, by saying that she would try to soften the heart of theBeast, and get him to let her return home soon. After he was gone, shewent into a fine room, on the door of which was written, in letters of gold,i~~ a
"Beauty's Room;" and lying on the table was a portrait of herself, underwhich were these words: "Beauty is Queen here; all things will obey her."All her meals were served to the sound of music, and at supper-time the politeBeast, drawing the curtains aside, would walk in, and talk so pleasantly, thatshe soon lost much of her fear of him. At last, he turned towards her, andsaid, "Am I so very ugly ?" "Yes, indeed you are," replied Beauty, "butthen you are so kind, that I don't mind your looks." " Will you marry me,then ? " asked he. Beauty, looking away, said, " Pray don't ask me." Hethen bade her " Good night" with a sad voice, and she retired to her bed-chamber.4
Beauty was now quite the Queen of the Palace, and all her wishes wereattended to; but, excepting at supper-time, she was always alone; the Beastthen appeared, and behaved so agreeably, that she liked him more and more.But to his question, " Beauty, will you marry me ?" he never could get any otheranswer than a shake of the head from her, on which he always took his leavevery sadly. One morning, when Beauty was sitting before a looking-glass in herbed-chamber, she said aloud, "If all things are to obey me, then do I wish tosee my home again, my father, and my sisters 1" In a moment a blue cloudpassed over the glass, and when it cleared away, Beauty saw her own home; buther sisters were not there, and her father was ill in bed, and grieving for her.
What Beauty had seen in the glass made her very sad; and at supper-timeshe begged so hard of the Beast to let her go home, if only for a week, that heagreed to her wish, and gave her a ring, telling' her to place it on her dressing-table whenever she desired to go or to return, and then showed her where tofind suitable clothes, as well as presents to take home. The poor Beast was moresad than ever, and moaned wretchedly. She tried to cheer him, saying, " Beautywill soon return," but nothing seemed to comfort him. Beauty then went to herroom, and before retiring to rest she took care to place the ring on the dressing-table. When she awoke next morning, what was her joy at finding herselfat home again, with the gifts and clothes from the Palace at her bed-aide.6. ....... ____..............____________________
She found her father ill in bed and alone, for her sisters were marriek Underher care he soon got well, and her sisters came to visit her, finding she had giftsfor them; but they grew envious when they heard how kind the Beast had been..When they knew that she must go away again in a week, they coaxed her rt-fully to stay two or three days over the time, hoping that the Beast would killher for this. But Beauty dreamed that poor Beast was lying dead in the Palacegarden; she awoke in a fright, looked for her ring, and placed it on the table.In the morning she was at the Palace again, but the Beast was nowhere tobe found: at last, she ran 4o the place in the garden that she had dreamedabout, and there, sure enough, poor Beast was, lying senseless on his back.r---
When Beauty saw the Beast in this lifeless state, she cried, and reproachedherself for having caused his death, by not returning to the day. On placing herhand upon his breast, she fancied she could feel a slight motion. She ran toa fountain close by, brought some water in a large shell, and sprinkled his facewith it until he opened his eyes. As soon as the Beast could speak a little, hesaid sorrowfully, " Why did you not keep your promise ? I have starved myselfto death; but now that I see you once more, I die contented." " No, no " shecried, " you shall not die! Oh, live to be my husband, and Beauty will be yourfaithful wife !" The moment she had uttered these words, a dazzling light shoneeverywhere; the Palace windows glittered with lamps, and music was heardaround. To her great wonder, a handsome young Prince stood before her, whosaid that her words had broken the spell of a magician, by which he had beendoomed to wear the form of a Beast, until a beautiful girl should love himin spite of his ugliness. The grateful Prince now claimed Beauty as his wife.The poor Merchant was soon informed of his daughter's good fortune, and thePrince was married to Beauty on the following day; but the two envious sisterswould not be present, and, for their evil thoughts, were changed by a fairy intotwo dull-looking statues; whilst the Prince and his lovely Princess, and -theMerchant her father, long lived in joy and honour, beloved by all people.8
