Like Potatoes

Two Lago employees flew to France last month to help with the
expansion of two refineries. Their trip took them into the midst of
a problem now drawing new lines in the world oil picture — the
increased production of petroleum products.

This production boost is affecting world-wide oil sales — in which
Lago has a vital stake — in three ways;

1. It is driving prices down.
2. It is turning purchasers to new suppliers.
3. It is raising production costs for those who lose part of their

sales.
Many refineries being erected in areas to which Lago ships its

E : ; ‘ |
production can sell at prices lower than Lago’s. These new installa- |
tions in most cases have lower shipping costs, wages and other cost- |

boosting expenses than those borne by Lago. As a result they will
be capturing markets — by dint of lower costs — that in the past
have been supplied by Lago.

With sales down, Lago must cut its throughput. As it does so,
the cost of refining a barrel of crude oil here goes up, because the
total cost is being divided by a smaller number of barrels. The
company must keep operating costs down in order to retain any
part of the markets where increasing competition is developing.

It can do it in one way — by operating at maximum efficiency. |
The Company is doing its part by investing large sums for improved
process and mechanical equipment. This alone cannot guarantee
maximum efficiency. An equally essential part is the full coopera-
tion of each employee in doing his job well.

Trying to keep costs down is as vital to Lago as it is to any other
profit-making enterprise; in this it is no different from any small
grocery store or shoe repair shop. Quality being equal, people buy
where they get the best price, whether it is a sack of potatoes or
100,000 barrels of gasoline.

By reducing operating costs, the company can meet lower prices
and keep its share of the business. This means more sales, more
sales mean more production. More production means refining a_
barrel of crude at a lower cost. Thus the sequence comes full-circle,
with minimum cost operation the basis for a successful commercial |
enterprise.

In today’s industrialized world the success of a company means
more jobs, continued employment and a more comfortable living for
company employees and their families.

Mescos cu Batata

Dos empleado di Lago a viaja pa Francia luna pasa pa yuda den
expansion di dos refineria. Nan viaja a hiba nan den centro di un
problema cu awor ta dunando otro forma na prospecto mundial den
industria petrolero — e produccion aumenta di productonan petro-
lero.

E hizamento di produccion aki ta afectando bende di azeta den
hentcr mundo — den cual Lago tin un parti vital — den tres modo:

1. E ta baha prijsnan.

2. & ta kita cliente.

3. E ta hiza costonan di produccion pa esnan cu perde un parti
di nan bende.

Hopi refineria cu ta worde construi den territorionan unda Lago
ta despatcha su productonan por entrega na prijs mas barata cu |
Lago. Den mayoria caso e instalacionnan nobo aki tin menos gasto
pa transporte, sueldo y otro gastonan cu ta hiza costo tanto. Con-
secuentemente, poco poco nan ta bai conquistando mercadonan
— pa motibo di nan prijs mas barata — cu antes tabata pertenece
na Lago.

Cu bendemento tanto abao, Lago mester corta su produccion.
Haciendo asina, e costo pa refina un barril di azeta crudo aki ta
subi, pa motibo cu e costo total mester worde parti entre un can-
tidad mcs chikito di barril. Compania mester tene costonan di ope-
racion abao pa retene cualkier parti di e mercadonan unda com-
peticion aumenta ta desaroyando.

Lago por haci esaki na un manera — door di opera cu maximo
eficiencia. Compania ta haciendo su parti investando sumanan gran-
di pa proceso y hermentnan mas mehor. Esaki sol no por garantiza
maximo eficiencia. Un parti mes esencial ta completo cooperacion di
cada empleado den cumplimento mehor cu su trabao.

Tratando pa tene costonan abao ta mes vital pa Lago manera pa
cualkier otro empresa cu ta traha cu e destino pa haci ganashi; den
e aspecto aki e no tin ningun diferencia cu cualkier tienda chikito
of zapateria. Cu calidad igual, hendenan ta cumpra semper unda nan
ta haya mehor prijs, sea nan ta cumpra un saco di batata of 100,000
barril di gasoline.

Door di reduci costonan di operacion, Compania por competi cu e
prijsnan mas barata y retene su parti den e negoshi. Esaki ta nifica
mas bende, mas bende ta nifica mas produccion. Mas produccion ta
nifica refina un barril di crudo cu mas poco gasto. Y asina e cir-
culo ta cerra, cu operacion na minimo costo e base pa un empresa
comercial cu kier tin exito.

Den mundo industrializa di awendia exito di un Compania ta nifica

On The Credit Side

By orderly and constitutional means the feeling of dissatisfaction
with LEC conditions has been translated by the referendum into
action. The extent of the desire for change was made plain. This
was recognized by the Council, which resigned en bloc and recom-
mended proceeding with a new election.

No less real was the evidence of strong general interest in con-
tinued representation by this means, This was shown by the fact
that over 90 per cent of the available constituents were concerned
enough to cast valid ballots. 2

Also brought into focus was the desirability of several constitu-
tional changes which were discussed in preliminary form in joint
meetings at the time the Council announced its resignation. It was
mutually agreed that it would be most appropriate for the new
Council, with a newly-affirmed mandate from the employees, to
consider such changes with Management.

Much that is on the credit side has arisen from the situation;
it remains now for employees to take full advantage of it by giving
the most careful thought to the selecting of their representatives in
the forthcoming election.

Na Banda di Credito

Door di medionan debida y constitucional e sentimento di dissatis-
faccion cu tabata prevalece tocante LEC a worde traduci den accion
cu e referendum. E deseo pa un cambio tabata francamente expresa.
Esaki a worde reconoci door di Council, cual a renuncia como un
grupo y a recomenda pa prosegui cu un eleccion nobo,

No menos evidente tabata fuerte interes pa representacion
worde manteni den e forma actual. E hecho cu mas cu 90 por ciento
di constituyentenan disponible a tira voto valido a munstra esaki.

Un otro condicion cu a presenta tabata e deseabilidad pa vari
cambionan constitucional cu a worde diseuti den forma preliminario
durante e reunion conjunto ora Council a anuncia cu nan ta tuma
retiro. A worde combini na ambos banda cu lo ta mas propio pa e
Council nobo, cu un mandate recien afirma for di empleadonan, con-
sidera tal cambionan cu Directiva.

E sucesonan di ultimo simannan a trece padilanti hopi puntonan
cu merece credito; awor ta keda na empleadonan pa probecha
ampliamente di esaki y duna e atencion mas cuidadoso na seleccion
di nan representantenan den e eleccion venidero.

Archeologist Sees Pottery As Keys To

Secrets to Arubas Past

N ANCIENT piece of broken
A pottery may not look like a
work of art if you happen to stub
your toe on a fragment during a
walk across an Aruban field. But
wait; pick it up. Now look closely.
You will see that the chip is no ordi-
nary piece of clay. It has been baked
at a high temperature. It is colored
and has lines painted on it. You will
feel that it must be very, very old. |
There is a firm purpose about the |
lines, a combination of subtle color |
that gives meaning to even a_ tiny |
fragment. If you think about it for |
a moment, you will probably try to
visualize the man who made it.



Certainly the maker must have |
lived a very long time ago. He prob-
ably had but a few tools to work
with and those he did have must have !
been very crude. By today’s standards,
his life must have been drab and mo-
notonous. Practically all of his wak-
ing hours were necessarily devoted |





to a life and death struggle to keep
alive.

Faced with such conditions, why
did this ancient man bother to pro-
duce works of art? If you
sufficiently curious and begin to
search for the answer, you will find
that one question leads to anothe
and very soon you will be — to a
greater or less extent — an archeo-
logist.

While in Aruba, Professor Cruxent

professor. By week's end, the excav-
ators had sifted more than half a ton
of fragments from the litter of shells,

going out of business” and then sat
down to a dinner of roast beef, roast
pork, spare ribs, chicken and veget-

ables.

They then shifted their attention to
a boxing ring set-up within the horse-
shoe grouped tables where two four-

round preliminary bouts and a six-
round main event were held.

Ash-trays bearing the name of each
supervisor were distributed as sou-
venirs.

The Three

Once upon a time there a farmer |
and his wife who had one daughter,
and she v courted by a gentleman,
Eve evening he used to come and
see her, and stop to eat supper at
the farmhouse, and the daughter
used to be sent down into the cellar
to draw the beer for the meal.

So one eyening when she had gone
| down to draw the beer, she happened
to look up at the ceiling while she
was drawing, and she saw a mallet
stuck in one of the beams. It must
have been there a long, long time,
| but_ somehow or other she had never
|noticed it before, and she began
athinking. And she thought it was
very dangerous to have that mallet
there, for she said to herself: "Sup-
pose him and me were to be married,
|and we were to have a son, and he
|was to grow up to be a man, and
come down into the cellar to draw
the beer, like as I’m doing now, and |
|the mallet was to fall on his head
and kill him, what a dreadful thing
it would be!” And she put down the
|eandle and the jug, and sat herself
down and began a-crying.
| Well, they began to wonder up-
| stairs how it was that she was so
{long drawing the beer, and her
mother went down to see after her, |
j and she found her sitting on the |
|settle crying, and the beer running
over the floor. ’’Why, whatever is the
matter?” asked her mother.

"Oh, mother!” said she, "look at
that horrid mallet! Suppose we were |
to be married, and were to have a}
son, and he was to grow up, and was |
to come down to the cellar to draw |
the beer, and the mallet was to fall |
on his head and kill him, what a
dreadful thing it would be!” |

"Dear, dear! What a dreadful |
thing it would be!” said the mother, |
and she sat her down aside of the |
daughter and started a-crying too. |

Then after a bit the father began
to wonder that they didn’t come
back, and he went down into the
cellar to look after them himself, and
there they two sat a-crying and the
beer running all over the floor.

"Whatever is the matter?” asked
he.

"Why,” said the mother, "look at
that horrid mallet. Just suppose, if |
our daughter and her sweetheart |
were to be married, and were to have
a son, and he was to grow up, and
was to come down into the cellar to |
draw the beer, and the mallet was |
to fall on his head and kill him, |
|what a dreadful thing it would be!”
| "Dear, dear, dear! So it
|























would!” |

said the father, and he sat himself |
|down aside of the other two, and|
started a-crying.

Now the gentleman grew tired of |
stopping up in the kitchen by him-
self, and at last he went down into
the cellar, too, to see what they were
after. And there the three sat a-cry-
ing side by side, and the beer run- |
ning all over the floor. He ran
straight and turned off the tap. Then





he said, "Whatever are you three
doing, sitting there crying, and}
letting the beer run all over the |
floor?” |

"Oh!" said the father, “look at

|that horrid mallet! Suppose you and |
our daughter were to be married and

| were to have a son, and he was to) |

grow up, and was to come down into
the cellar to draw the beer, and the
mallet was to fall on his head and
kill him!” And then the three started |
| a-erying worse than before.

| But the »gentleman burst out a-
laughing, and reached up and pulled
out the mallet, and then he said: |
"T’ve traveled many miles, and I}
|never met three such big sillies as |
|you three before; and now I shall |
start out on my travels again, and
| when I can find three bigger silli
|than you three, then I’ll come back |
and marry your daughter.” So he
wished them good-bye and started |
off on his travels, and left them all |
ing because the girl had lost her |
eetheart. |
Well, he set out, and he traveled a











long way, and at last he came to
|a woman’s cottage that had some
grass growing on the roof. The

woman was trying to get her cow |
to go up a ladder to the grass, and
|the poor thing durst not go. So the
| gentleman asked the woman what
\she was doing.

|*Why, looky,” she said, "look at all
that beautiful grass. I’m going to
| get the cow on to the roof to eat it.
|She’ll be quite safe, for I shall tie a
{string round her neck, and pass it
down the chimney, and tie it to my
wrist as I go about the house, so she
can’t fall off without my knowing
jit.”







Sillies

"Oh, you poor silly!” said the gent-
leman. "You should cut the grass
and throw it down to the cow!”

But the woman thought it w.
easier to get the cow up the ladde
than to get the grass down, so she
pushed her and coaxed her and got

her up, and tied a string round her |

neck, and passed it down the chim-
ney, and fastened it to her own wrist.

And the gentleman went on his
way, but he hadn’t gone far when
the cow tumbled off the roof, and
hung by the string tied round her
neck, and it strangled her. And the
weight of the cow tied to her wrist
pulled the woman up the chimney,
and she stuck fast half-way and was
smothered in the soot.

Well, that was one big silly.

The gentleman went on and on,
and he went to an inn to stop the
night. They were so full at the inn
that they had to put him in a double-
bedded room, and another traveler
was to sleep in the other bed. The
other man very ple t fel-
low, and they became very friendly
together.

3ut in the morning, when they
e both getting up, the gentleman
v surprised to see the other hang
his trous on the knobs of the chest
of drawers and run across the room
and try to jump into them. He tried
over and over again, but couldn’t
manage it; and the gentleman won-
dered whatever he was doing it for.

At last he stopped and wiped his
face with his handkerchief. "Oh,

|dear,” he said, "I do think trousers
jare the most ackwardest kind of
clothes that ever were. I can’t think
who could have invented such things.
|It takes me the best part of an hour
to get into mine every morning, and
I get so hot! How do you manage
yours?”

So the gentleman burst out a-
laughing, and showed him how to
pull them on; and he was very much
obliged to him, and said he never
of doing it






should have thought
that way.
So that was another big silly.
Then

the gentleman went on his
s again, and he came to a vil-
Outside the village there was
a pond, and round the pond was a
crowd of people. They had _ rakes,
and brooms, and pitchforks, and were
reaching into the pond. The gentle-
man asked what is the matter.

"Why,” they said, "matter enough!
The moon has tumbled into the pond,
and we can’t rake her out anyhow!”

So the gentleman burst out a-
laughing, and then told them to look
up into the sky, and that it was only
the reflection they saw in the water.
But they wouldn’t listen to him, and
abused him shamefully, and he got
away as quickly as be could.

There were a whole lot of bigger
sillies than the three sillies at home.
So the gentleman turned back home
again and married the farmer’s
daughter, and if they didn’t live hap-
pily forever after, that has nothing
|to do with you or me.

Like Potatoes

Two Lago employees flew to France last month to help with the
expansion of two refineries. Their trip took them into the midst of
a problem now drawing new lines in the world oil picture — the
increased production of petroleum products.

This production boost is affecting world-wide oil sales — in which
Lago has a vital stake — in three ways;

1. It is driving prices down.
2. It is turning purchasers to new suppliers.
3. It is raising production costs for those who lose part of their

sales.
Many refineries being erected in areas to which Lago ships its

E : ; ‘ |
production can sell at prices lower than Lago’s. These new installa- |
tions in most cases have lower shipping costs, wages and other cost- |

boosting expenses than those borne by Lago. As a result they will
be capturing markets — by dint of lower costs — that in the past
have been supplied by Lago.

With sales down, Lago must cut its throughput. As it does so,
the cost of refining a barrel of crude oil here goes up, because the
total cost is being divided by a smaller number of barrels. The
company must keep operating costs down in order to retain any
part of the markets where increasing competition is developing.

It can do it in one way — by operating at maximum efficiency. |
The Company is doing its part by investing large sums for improved
process and mechanical equipment. This alone cannot guarantee
maximum efficiency. An equally essential part is the full coopera-
tion of each employee in doing his job well.

Trying to keep costs down is as vital to Lago as it is to any other
profit-making enterprise; in this it is no different from any small
grocery store or shoe repair shop. Quality being equal, people buy
where they get the best price, whether it is a sack of potatoes or
100,000 barrels of gasoline.

By reducing operating costs, the company can meet lower prices
and keep its share of the business. This means more sales, more
sales mean more production. More production means refining a_
barrel of crude at a lower cost. Thus the sequence comes full-circle,
with minimum cost operation the basis for a successful commercial |
enterprise.

In today’s industrialized world the success of a company means
more jobs, continued employment and a more comfortable living for
company employees and their families.

Mescos cu Batata

Dos empleado di Lago a viaja pa Francia luna pasa pa yuda den
expansion di dos refineria. Nan viaja a hiba nan den centro di un
problema cu awor ta dunando otro forma na prospecto mundial den
industria petrolero — e produccion aumenta di productonan petro-
lero.

E hizamento di produccion aki ta afectando bende di azeta den
hentcr mundo — den cual Lago tin un parti vital — den tres modo:

1. E ta baha prijsnan.

2. & ta kita cliente.

3. E ta hiza costonan di produccion pa esnan cu perde un parti
di nan bende.

Hopi refineria cu ta worde construi den territorionan unda Lago
ta despatcha su productonan por entrega na prijs mas barata cu |
Lago. Den mayoria caso e instalacionnan nobo aki tin menos gasto
pa transporte, sueldo y otro gastonan cu ta hiza costo tanto. Con-
secuentemente, poco poco nan ta bai conquistando mercadonan
— pa motibo di nan prijs mas barata — cu antes tabata pertenece
na Lago.

Cu bendemento tanto abao, Lago mester corta su produccion.
Haciendo asina, e costo pa refina un barril di azeta crudo aki ta
subi, pa motibo cu e costo total mester worde parti entre un can-
tidad mcs chikito di barril. Compania mester tene costonan di ope-
racion abao pa retene cualkier parti di e mercadonan unda com-
peticion aumenta ta desaroyando.

Lago por haci esaki na un manera — door di opera cu maximo
eficiencia. Compania ta haciendo su parti investando sumanan gran-
di pa proceso y hermentnan mas mehor. Esaki sol no por garantiza
maximo eficiencia. Un parti mes esencial ta completo cooperacion di
cada empleado den cumplimento mehor cu su trabao.

Tratando pa tene costonan abao ta mes vital pa Lago manera pa
cualkier otro empresa cu ta traha cu e destino pa haci ganashi; den
e aspecto aki e no tin ningun diferencia cu cualkier tienda chikito
of zapateria. Cu calidad igual, hendenan ta cumpra semper unda nan
ta haya mehor prijs, sea nan ta cumpra un saco di batata of 100,000
barril di gasoline.

Door di reduci costonan di operacion, Compania por competi cu e
prijsnan mas barata y retene su parti den e negoshi. Esaki ta nifica
mas bende, mas bende ta nifica mas produccion. Mas produccion ta
nifica refina un barril di crudo cu mas poco gasto. Y asina e cir-
culo ta cerra, cu operacion na minimo costo e base pa un empresa
comercial cu kier tin exito.

Den mundo industrializa di awendia exito di un Compania ta nifica

On The Credit Side

By orderly and constitutional means the feeling of dissatisfaction
with LEC conditions has been translated by the referendum into
action. The extent of the desire for change was made plain. This
was recognized by the Council, which resigned en bloc and recom-
mended proceeding with a new election.

No less real was the evidence of strong general interest in con-
tinued representation by this means, This was shown by the fact
that over 90 per cent of the available constituents were concerned
enough to cast valid ballots. 2

Also brought into focus was the desirability of several constitu-
tional changes which were discussed in preliminary form in joint
meetings at the time the Council announced its resignation. It was
mutually agreed that it would be most appropriate for the new
Council, with a newly-affirmed mandate from the employees, to
consider such changes with Management.

Much that is on the credit side has arisen from the situation;
it remains now for employees to take full advantage of it by giving
the most careful thought to the selecting of their representatives in
the forthcoming election.

Na Banda di Credito

Door di medionan debida y constitucional e sentimento di dissatis-
faccion cu tabata prevalece tocante LEC a worde traduci den accion
cu e referendum. E deseo pa un cambio tabata francamente expresa.
Esaki a worde reconoci door di Council, cual a renuncia como un
grupo y a recomenda pa prosegui cu un eleccion nobo,

No menos evidente tabata fuerte interes pa representacion
worde manteni den e forma actual. E hecho cu mas cu 90 por ciento
di constituyentenan disponible a tira voto valido a munstra esaki.

Un otro condicion cu a presenta tabata e deseabilidad pa vari
cambionan constitucional cu a worde diseuti den forma preliminario
durante e reunion conjunto ora Council a anuncia cu nan ta tuma
retiro. A worde combini na ambos banda cu lo ta mas propio pa e
Council nobo, cu un mandate recien afirma for di empleadonan, con-
sidera tal cambionan cu Directiva.

E sucesonan di ultimo simannan a trece padilanti hopi puntonan
cu merece credito; awor ta keda na empleadonan pa probecha
ampliamente di esaki y duna e atencion mas cuidadoso na seleccion
di nan representantenan den e eleccion venidero.

Archeologist Sees Pottery As Keys To

Secrets to Arubas Past

N ANCIENT piece of broken
A pottery may not look like a
work of art if you happen to stub
your toe on a fragment during a
walk across an Aruban field. But
wait; pick it up. Now look closely.
You will see that the chip is no ordi-
nary piece of clay. It has been baked
at a high temperature. It is colored
and has lines painted on it. You will
feel that it must be very, very old. |
There is a firm purpose about the |
lines, a combination of subtle color |
that gives meaning to even a_ tiny |
fragment. If you think about it for |
a moment, you will probably try to
visualize the man who made it.



Certainly the maker must have |
lived a very long time ago. He prob-
ably had but a few tools to work
with and those he did have must have !
been very crude. By today’s standards,
his life must have been drab and mo-
notonous. Practically all of his wak-
ing hours were necessarily devoted |





to a life and death struggle to keep
alive.

Faced with such conditions, why
did this ancient man bother to pro-
duce works of art? If you
sufficiently curious and begin to
search for the answer, you will find
that one question leads to anothe
and very soon you will be — to a
greater or less extent — an archeo-
logist.

While in Aruba, Professor Cruxent

professor. By week's end, the excav-
ators had sifted more than half a ton
of fragments from the litter of shells,

Lago played host the night of June
6 to over 600 supervisors who gather-

Greeted by music from the Aruba
All-Star Boys steel band, the super-

heard Mr. Horigan state "we are not
going out of business” and then sat
down to a dinner of roast beef, roast
pork, spare ribs, chicken and veget-

social



ables.

They then shifted their attention to
a boxing ring set-up within the horse-
shoe grouped tables where two four-

round preliminary bouts and a six-
round main event were held.

Ash-trays bearing the name of each
supervisor were distributed as sou-
venirs.

The Three

Once upon a time there a farmer |
and his wife who had one daughter,
and she v courted by a gentleman,
Eve evening he used to come and
see her, and stop to eat supper at
the farmhouse, and the daughter
used to be sent down into the cellar
to draw the beer for the meal.

So one eyening when she had gone
| down to draw the beer, she happened
to look up at the ceiling while she
was drawing, and she saw a mallet
stuck in one of the beams. It must
have been there a long, long time,
| but_ somehow or other she had never
|noticed it before, and she began
athinking. And she thought it was
very dangerous to have that mallet
there, for she said to herself: "Sup-
pose him and me were to be married,
|and we were to have a son, and he
|was to grow up to be a man, and
come down into the cellar to draw
the beer, like as I’m doing now, and |
|the mallet was to fall on his head
and kill him, what a dreadful thing
it would be!” And she put down the
|eandle and the jug, and sat herself
down and began a-crying.
| Well, they began to wonder up-
| stairs how it was that she was so
{long drawing the beer, and her
mother went down to see after her, |
j and she found her sitting on the |
|settle crying, and the beer running
over the floor. ’’Why, whatever is the
matter?” asked her mother.

"Oh, mother!” said she, "look at
that horrid mallet! Suppose we were |
to be married, and were to have a}
son, and he was to grow up, and was |
to come down to the cellar to draw |
the beer, and the mallet was to fall |
on his head and kill him, what a
dreadful thing it would be!” |

"Dear, dear! What a dreadful |
thing it would be!” said the mother, |
and she sat her down aside of the |
daughter and started a-crying too. |

Then after a bit the father began
to wonder that they didn’t come
back, and he went down into the
cellar to look after them himself, and
there they two sat a-crying and the
beer running all over the floor.

"Whatever is the matter?” asked
he.

"Why,” said the mother, "look at
that horrid mallet. Just suppose, if |
our daughter and her sweetheart |
were to be married, and were to have
a son, and he was to grow up, and
was to come down into the cellar to |
draw the beer, and the mallet was |
to fall on his head and kill him, |
|what a dreadful thing it would be!”
| "Dear, dear, dear! So it
|























would!” |

said the father, and he sat himself |
|down aside of the other two, and|
started a-crying.

Now the gentleman grew tired of |
stopping up in the kitchen by him-
self, and at last he went down into
the cellar, too, to see what they were
after. And there the three sat a-cry-
ing side by side, and the beer run- |
ning all over the floor. He ran
straight and turned off the tap. Then





he said, "Whatever are you three
doing, sitting there crying, and}
letting the beer run all over the |
floor?” |

"Oh!" said the father, “look at

|that horrid mallet! Suppose you and |
our daughter were to be married and

| were to have a son, and he was to) |

grow up, and was to come down into
the cellar to draw the beer, and the
mallet was to fall on his head and
kill him!” And then the three started |
| a-erying worse than before.

| But the »gentleman burst out a-
laughing, and reached up and pulled
out the mallet, and then he said: |
"T’ve traveled many miles, and I}
|never met three such big sillies as |
|you three before; and now I shall |
start out on my travels again, and
| when I can find three bigger silli
|than you three, then I’ll come back |
and marry your daughter.” So he
wished them good-bye and started |
off on his travels, and left them all |
ing because the girl had lost her |
eetheart. |
Well, he set out, and he traveled a











long way, and at last he came to
|a woman’s cottage that had some
grass growing on the roof. The

woman was trying to get her cow |
to go up a ladder to the grass, and
|the poor thing durst not go. So the
| gentleman asked the woman what
\she was doing.

|*Why, looky,” she said, "look at all
that beautiful grass. I’m going to
| get the cow on to the roof to eat it.
|She’ll be quite safe, for I shall tie a
{string round her neck, and pass it
down the chimney, and tie it to my
wrist as I go about the house, so she
can’t fall off without my knowing
jit.”







Sillies

"Oh, you poor silly!” said the gent-
leman. "You should cut the grass
and throw it down to the cow!”

But the woman thought it w.
easier to get the cow up the ladde
than to get the grass down, so she
pushed her and coaxed her and got

her up, and tied a string round her |

neck, and passed it down the chim-
ney, and fastened it to her own wrist.

And the gentleman went on his
way, but he hadn’t gone far when
the cow tumbled off the roof, and
hung by the string tied round her
neck, and it strangled her. And the
weight of the cow tied to her wrist
pulled the woman up the chimney,
and she stuck fast half-way and was
smothered in the soot.

Well, that was one big silly.

The gentleman went on and on,
and he went to an inn to stop the
night. They were so full at the inn
that they had to put him in a double-
bedded room, and another traveler
was to sleep in the other bed. The
other man very ple t fel-
low, and they became very friendly
together.

3ut in the morning, when they
e both getting up, the gentleman
v surprised to see the other hang
his trous on the knobs of the chest
of drawers and run across the room
and try to jump into them. He tried
over and over again, but couldn’t
manage it; and the gentleman won-
dered whatever he was doing it for.

At last he stopped and wiped his
face with his handkerchief. "Oh,

|dear,” he said, "I do think trousers
jare the most ackwardest kind of
clothes that ever were. I can’t think
who could have invented such things.
|It takes me the best part of an hour
to get into mine every morning, and
I get so hot! How do you manage
yours?”

So the gentleman burst out a-
laughing, and showed him how to
pull them on; and he was very much
obliged to him, and said he never
of doing it






should have thought
that way.
So that was another big silly.
Then

the gentleman went on his
s again, and he came to a vil-
Outside the village there was
a pond, and round the pond was a
crowd of people. They had _ rakes,
and brooms, and pitchforks, and were
reaching into the pond. The gentle-
man asked what is the matter.

"Why,” they said, "matter enough!
The moon has tumbled into the pond,
and we can’t rake her out anyhow!”

So the gentleman burst out a-
laughing, and then told them to look
up into the sky, and that it was only
the reflection they saw in the water.
But they wouldn’t listen to him, and
abused him shamefully, and he got
away as quickly as be could.

There were a whole lot of bigger
sillies than the three sillies at home.
So the gentleman turned back home
again and married the farmer’s
daughter, and if they didn’t live hap-
pily forever after, that has nothing
|to do with you or me.
