Galliver's Travels.

Gulliver was a great traveller who met
with many adventures, and one of the most
extraordinary was that described in this book
- his finding the tiny little people called

The country of Lilliput was only a few miles .
in size, and the people who lived there were hardly six inches high,
and the animals only a little bigger than those in your Noah's
Ark. Gulliver was wrecked off their coast, he was the only one of the

crew who swam to that shore. After Gulliver landed he walked about
half a mile and then, being very much tired, he lay down and went
to sleep. When he awoke he found that he was tied to the
ground, and feeling something moving on his body he looked
and saw a lot of little men walking over him. Gulliver called
out in astonishment, and the tiny people rushed off in fear.
However they soon returned, but when Gulliver managed to

break some of his bonds they ran
off again and then shot at him
with little bows and arrows. They
talked in a curious language,
but Gulliver made them under-
stand that he would not hurt

Them and that he was hungry.
Then they
gave him

something to
and mixed a

sleeping draught with the wine so that he slept a great many hours.
When he awoke he found he was on a truck, and in this way he was
dragged to the City, half a mile distant, by fifteen hundred of the
King's biggest horses. The King himself came out to see Gulliver,
the horse he was riding, reared, and almost threw him he was
so much frightened at seeing such an enormous man. At first the
Lilliputians too, were very much alarmed, but when they found
he did not harm them, even the children grew bold and would

play at hide and seek in his hair as he lay on the ground.
Gulliver had a house, the largest one in the town, given him

to live in, but he found great difficulty

in getting into it Six hun-
dred beds had

together to make one large enough for him to lie on.
He had six hundred persons to wait upon him,
and, of course, ate a tremendous lot of their kind
of food. More J than forty of their sheep
were only equal to
S j one of our small
Slegs of mutton.

One day some of the country people came to the City
and said they had found a curious looking object, like a hill.
This proved to be ,Gulliver's hat, and so they dragged it, with
ropes fastened on to the brim, to him, and very glad he was
to get it again.
Gulliver had great trouble in walking about the town,

he had to be very careful or he would have knocked down
the houses.

Now the Lilliputians had a quarrel with the Blefuscudians.
Blefusco was, they believed, the only other country in the
world besides their own. The quarrel arose from a very foolish
cause. Most people, you know, break the larger end of an

egg, and so it was in Lilliput until a King's son cut his finger
in doing so. Then the King ordered every-
body to break the other end of the egg,
and this some people would not do, and
there were lots of

riots and rebellions,
and the Emperor
of Blefusco sided

with the Big-
endians as the
rebels were

called. Well, the Emperor of,
Blefusco at last declared
war against the Lilli- *
putians, and built a great .
many ships to invade the / E -
enemy's country. Gulliver,
who had by this time learnt N RRo
the Lilliputian language, was r i
told of this, and said he

Should do what he could
to help the King. So he
made a lot of strong cords
and to these he fastened
hooks, then he waded into
the sea, and when out
of his depth swam a

C S y ,little, then waded again
till he came to the

coast of Blefusco. When
the Blefuscudians saw ".
such a tremendous per- "
son coming they left
their ships and fled in
fear. Gulliver then hook-
ed his ropes on to fifty of
their ships and
pulled them all
after him across to I
Lilliput. The King was
immensely astonished, but not as

grateful as he ought to have been
and wanted Gulliver to go back
again and fetch the remainder of
Sthe Fleet. But this Gulliver would
not do as he did not think it fair.
The King was not* so friendly to

him after that, and at last began to think about killing him
A friend told Gulliver this, so he escaped to Blefusco, for
the King of that country wished to make friends with him.
But he did not stay there long, for one
day he had the happiness of
seeing a boat come drifting
to the shore, and into
this he got, and rowed

Saway accompanied by the
cheers and good wishes of
the Blefuscudians
