* C- I,
"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
3 .,. into gold, by to-morrow morning,
as you value your life."
When left alone, the Miller's daughter
sat down and cried bitterly.
All at once the door opened, and a !
funny little manikin hopped in, and said: K ii\
Q 'If ) j/. k'
"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
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

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
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.
---A-)- r_ .,. -
out all the new names that she did not know.

When the little man came on the next
day, she began with
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
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!

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
