Well, the little pig bustled up the next morning at four o’clock, and went off for the pears, hoping to get back before the wolf came. But he had further to go, and had to climb the tree, so that just as he was getting down from it he saw the wolf coming, which, as you may suppose, frightened him very much. When the wolf came up he said, “What! are you here before me? are they nice pears?” “Yes, very,” said the little pig. “I will throw you down one;” and he threw it so far that while the wolf was going to pick it up, the little pig jumped down and ran home.

RED RIDING HOOD ARRIVES AT THE COTTAGE.

“Poor Grannie,” said Red Riding Hood, “I have brought you some soup to make you better.” “Thank you, my dear,” said the Wolf in a weak voice, “I like you better than soup.” “But what large eyes you have Grannie!” said the child. “The better to see you with my dear, said the Wolf with a grin.

Huff And Puff!

Presently a wolf came along and knocked at the door, and said, — “little pig, little pig, let me come in!”

To which the pig answered, — “No, no, by the hair on my chinny-chin-chin!”

This made the wolf angry, and he said, — “Then I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house in!”
