A N old woman was sweeping her house, and she found
a silver sixpence. "What shall I do with this little
sixpence ? said she, I will go to market, and buy a pig."
So she went to market and bought a nice little pig, and, as
she was coming home, she came to a stile; but piggy was
obstinate, and would not go over the stile.
The old Dame looked around and saw a little dog.
So she said to the dog-
Dog, dog, bite pig;
Piggy won't get over the stile;
And I shan't get home to-night."
But the dog would not.
She went a little further, and she met a stick.

THE OLD WOMAN AND HER PIG.


So she said-
Stick, stick, beat dog;
Dog won't bite pig;
Piggy won't get over the stile;
And I shan't get home to night."
But the stick would not.
She went a little further, and she met a fire.
So she said-
Fire, fire, burn stick;
Stick won't beat dog;
Dog won't bite pig;
Piggy won't get over the stile;
And I shan't get home to night."
But the fire would not.
She went a little further, and she met some water.
So she said-
"Water, water, quench fire;
Fire won't burn stick;
Stick won't beat dog;
Dog won't bite pig;
Piggy won't get over the stile;
And I shan't get home to night."
But the water would not.
She went a little further, and she met an ox.
So. she said-
"Ox, ox, drink water;
Water won't quench fire;
Fire won't burn stick;

and fetch me a saucer of nice fresh milk, I will kill the rat
for you."
So away went the old woman to the cow and said-
Cow, cow, give me a saucer of milk;
Cat won't kill rat;
Rat won't gnaw rope;
Rope won't hang butcher;
Butcher won't kill ox ;
Ox won't drink water;
Water won't quench fire ;
Fire won't burn stick;
Stick won't beat dog;
Dog won't bite pig;
Piggy won't get over the stile;
And I shan't get home to night."
But the cow said to her : If you will go to yonder hay-
makers, and fetch me a wisp of hay, I'll give you the milk."
So away the old woman went to the haymakers, and said-
Haymakers give me a wisp of hay;
Cow won't give me milk;
Cat won't kill rat;
Rat won't gnaw rope;
Rope won't hang butcher ;
Butcher won't kill ox;
Ox won't drink water;
Water won't quench fire;
Fire won't burn stick;
Stick won't beat dog;







THE OLD WOMAN AND HER PIG.


Dog won't bite pig;
Piggy won't get over the stile;
And I shan't get home to night."
But the haymakers said to her, If you will go to yonder
stream, and fetch us a bucket of water, we'll give you the
hay,"
So the old woman went, but when she got to the stream,
she found the bucket was full of holes. So she covered the
bottom with pebbles, and then filled the bucket with water,
and away she went back with it to the haymakers; and they
gave her a wisp of hay, which the old woman took joyfully
to'the cow.
As soon as the cow had eaten the hay, she gave the old
woman the milk; and away she went with it in a saucer to
the cat.
As soon as the cat had lapped up the milk-
The cat began to kill the rat;
The rat began to gnaw the rope;
The'rope began to hang the butcher;
The butcher began to kill the ox;
The ox began to drink the water;
The water began to quench the fire;
The fire began to burn the stick;
The stick began to beat the dog;
The dog began to bite the pig;
The little pig in a fright jumped over the stile;
And so the old woman got home that night."
