He went to beg of the giant's wife, butshe was a long time before she would let himin. At last she took him to the kitchen, gavehim some plum tart and milk, and let him sleepin a closet where the pans were kept. Whenthe giant came in, he said he smelt fresh meat;but his wife said it was only a dead horse, andshe gave him a large loaf, and a whole cheese,and a pailful of beer for his supper. When hehad done, he took out his money-bags, andcounted his money till he fell asleep. Then Jackcame out on tiptoe, lifted up the heavy bags andmade haste to the bean-stalk, where he was gladto let the bags slide down first, and then to slideafter them. Now they were rich, for it was theirown money, and Jack's mother lived like a lady.Still Jack did not forget what the Fairy hadtold him to do, so he climbed up the bean-stalkonce more, and went on to the house of their

Then Jacksaid, " I will have the harp,"and as soon as thegiant began to snore, he took up the harp, andran off.But the harp was a fairy, and it called out,"MasMaster Master!" till the giant awoke, and ranafter the boy; but for all his long strides he wasso drunk that Jack got to the bean-stalk first,and you may be sure he was not long in com-ing down.Then the giant began to come down..;x
