T HERE was once a miller who had three sons. On dying, he divided his property amongst the sons in this way: to the eldest he gave his mill; to the second, his ass; and to the youngest, his cat and a pair of boots.

The cat had been rubAI

find that you have not so bad a bargain as you think." Although Jack could not imagine how Puss was going to help him, he made up his mind to trust him with the boots and a bag, and find out what he would do.
Puss set off with a bold air for a place where he knew there were a great many wild rabbits. He put some lettuce inside of the bag, and set it on the ground wide open. Then he.hid himself and waited.

In a few minutes two foolish young rabbits, sniffing the lettuce, ran straight into the bag, when Puss quickly pulled the strings, and had them caught. Y
Very proud of his success, the - - - ---cat went to the royal palace, and asked to speak to the King. His air was so grand that the sentinel on guard dared not refuse him.

The King accepted A PRESENT FOR THE KING the present, and desired Puss to convey his thanks to his master.
For several days Puss continued to capture game of one sort or another by the same trick. Besides getting food enough for his master and himself, he was able to take a present to the King every few days. His Majesty often expressed a wish to see the Marquis, but as Jack had no clothes fit to appear in at court, Puss advised him to wait a while.

The King looked out of the carriage window, and recognizing Puss, ordered his guards to rescue the Marquis.
Puss told his Majesty that robbers had run away with his master's clothes, although the fact was that he had hidden them under a stone. The King ordered a groom to fetch a handsome suit for the Marquis, and when Jack put this A on he looked as fine as a

into the royal carriage. Jack hesitated, but the Princess, who was very
V
pretty,, smiled so sweetly at him that he overcame his shyness, and took his seat with as much of an air of ease as he could command.
PUSS AND THE REAPERS Puss, greatly delighted, ran on ahead of the carriage until he came to a field of wheat, in which reapers were at work. Going up to them he said fiercely, " Reapers, if you don't say, when the King comes, that this field belongs to the Marquis of Carabas, you shall all be chopped as fine as mince-meat."
When the King came along he exclaimed to the reapers, "What a fine field of wheat! To whom does it belong?" ,TotheMarquis

The cat at length reached a splendid castle belonging to an ogre who was the real owner of the domains the King had been riding through. Puss knocked boldly at the door, and sent in a polite message to the ogre, asking leave to pay his respects. The ogre received him with as much civility as could be expected from an ogre, and they were soon chatting sociably together.
" I have been told,"' said the cat to the ogre, that you have the power of changing yourself into the shape of large animals, such as an elephant for instance."
That is quite true," said the ogre, as you can see for yourself," and in a moment he stood before the cat in the shape of an immense . . . . . . . .

"Wonderful! said Puss. But can you change your shape to any animal you choose ?
Certainly," replied the

"What is that?" inquired the ogre.
"To see you take the form of a very tiny animal, say a mouse, for instance. That, I suppose, would be an utter im'14 d
