THE GOLDEN GOOSE.

. . . she seized the goose by the wing, but her finger and hand remained sticking fast to it.

The second came soon afterwards, thinking only of how she might get a feather for herself, but she had scarcely touched her sister than she was held fast.

At last the third also came with the like intent, and the others screamed out, “Keep away; for goodness’ sake keep away!” But she did not understand why she was to keep away. “The others are there,” she thought, “I may as well be there too,” and ran to them; but as soon as she had touched her sister, she remained sticking fast to her.

Mother Goose Flew To The Moon!

“Old Mother Goose.”

And then the gold egg was thrown into the sea,

When Jack he jumped in, and got it back presently.

The knave got the goose, which he vowed he would kill,

Resolving at once his pockets to fill.

Jack’s mother came in, and caught the goose soon,

And mounting its back, flew up to the moon.

“Oh! I am going to tell the King the sky is falling,” says Chicken Little.

“How do you know?” says Henny Penny.

“I saw it with my eyes, I heard it with my ears, and a piece of it fell on my head.”

“May I come with you?” says Henny Penny.

“Certainly,” says Chicken Little.
