THE FISHERMAN AND HIS WIFE

[graphic]

I A fisherman sat on the rocks by the sea. No fish had come to his line all day. He was just going home. Jerk! Jerk! what was that? Just see the queer fish on his line! "Please put me back! Please put me back!” cried the fish.

“That I will,” said the fisherman. “I can

not eat a fish that talks." He put the fish back in the sea and went

home. “Where is your fish ?” said his wife. The fisherman told his wife about

the queer fish. She was angry with him. “Did you ask.

the fish for anything ?” said she. “No," said the fisherman, “I did not

think of that.” “Go back and ask for a good home,” said

she. The fisherman went back to the sea.

Then he said:

“Little fish, little fish,

Come, I pray, and talk to me.”

The fish came up out of the sea.
“What do you wish of me?" cried he.
“My wife wishes a good home,” said
the fisherman.

“Go home,” said the fish,

“Your wife has her wish.” The fisherman went back to his wife. There stood a lovely new home. They had

everything-pigs and geese and a cow. "Ilow fine!” said the fisherman. Next morning the wife said, “I wish

to live in a castle. Go ask the fish." “Oh!” said he, please do not make me.” “Do as I tell you!” said the wife. · The fisherman went back to the sea.

“ Little fish, little fish,
Come, I pray, and talk to me.”
