RU MPEL-STILTS-KIN.



"NCE there lived a poor miller who had a very

beautiful daughter. He was very proud of

her, and, in speaking to the King,

told him that she could spin gold out of straw.

Now this King was exceedingly fond of money, so he ordered

the girl to be brought before him.

Then he led her to a chamber, in which were many bundles
of straw, and, giving her a spinning-wheel, said:

"' "All this straw must be .spun

as you value your life."

When left alone, the Miller's daughter

sat down and cried bitterly.

"Good day, my lass. Why do you weep ?"

Then the Miller's daughter related how she was expected

to spin the straw into gold.

What will you give me to spin it for you said he.















My necklace" said the maiden.

The little fellow took the necklace, and sat down at the

spinning-wheel, and worked merrily during the whole night, until

the straw was all spun into gold.

The King came at sunrise, and

SI 'I' was astonished and delighted, but his

Sjheart grew still more greedy; so he

ordered the Miller's daughter to spin

him more gold, as she valued her life.

No sooner was she left alone, lamenting her fate, when

the little man returned, and asked her what she would give

him this time to do her task.

My ring," said she; and again the little man spun

all the straw into glittering c( x

gold.

The King rejoiced vastly

at so great a treasure, but still

he coveted more: so he led 0 T C 0-

the Miller's daughter to a still larger room full

of straw, and told her if she succeeded this

time she would become his Queen.

When the King had left her, the little

man returned for the third time and asked her

what she would give him to spin more gold.

"Alas, I have nothing left," said the maiden.

"Then promise me your first little child when you are Queen."

That may never be," thought the
I ; , ,, ,
Miller's daughter; so she at last promised 'IIf

the little man as he desired, and again all '

the straw became gold. I ''

Next day the King found everything ',i '.

as he wished.

So he married her, and the poor Miller's daughter became

Queen of the land.

















A year afterwards, a beautiful child was born; but the Queen

thought no more of the little man, until one morning he suddenly

entered her chamber, and demanded of her what she had

promised.

The Queen was terrified, and offered all the riches of her

kingdom; but the little man said No."

Then the Queen began to weep so much that he at last

had pity on her.

"I shall give you three days" said he, "and if you guess my

name during that time, you may keep your child."















Then the Queen lay awake during the whole night, and thought

over all the curious names she had ever heard.

When the little man came on the next


day, she began with


Timothy, Ebenezer,


Jeremiah, and said over


all the names she

knew, but fI at each one


the little man said


"That is not my name.

The second day she sent round the neighbourhood to ask

all the funny names the people were called, and repeated some

of the most unusual ones.

















"Perhaps you are called 'Hunch-back,' or 'Crook-shanks,' or

'Bandy-legs.'"

But the little fellow always answered: That is not my name.

On the third day, one of the messengers returned, and said:

"New names I have not been able to find; but, as I looked round

the corner of a wood, on a high mountain, where the fox and hare















say 'Good night!' I saw there a little hut, and before it a fire burned,

and round the fire a ridiculous little fellow hopped on one

leg and sang :-

'I'll brew to-morrow, bake to-day,

Then fetch the infant Prince away;

Little knows his Royal Dame

That Rumpel-stilts-kin is my name.'"















The Queen rejoiced greatly at this news, and when the little

man entered soon afterwards, and said, "What is my name ?" she

asked him, "Is it John ? "No." "Or Henry" No." "Then

perhaps you are called 'Rumpel-stilts-kin ?' "

" Some witch has told you!

some witch has told you !"

cried the little man; and he

stamped on the ground so violently with his right foot, that it

went right through, and he nearly tore himself in two in

"pulling it out again.




Then he made off -

as fast as he could, ,

followed by the jeers

of everybody.
