The children of every people in
the world like to listen to stories
told by their elders, and each race
has its list of childhood tales. The
following is often told to little
Mr. Deer and his tribe dwell in
the woods. Mr. Antelope and his
large family live on the plains.
Both animals are great runners,
and each one thinks himself the
One day Mr. Antelope was
walking along the plain just at the
edge of the forest, when Mr. Deer
happened to be walking in the
woods near the plain, and they saw
each other. "Good morning, neigh
bor Antelope," called out Mr. Deer.
"Are your legs in good condi
tion." "Good morning, good morning;
yes I teel very well indeed this
morning, Brother Deer," said
Mr. Antelope. "The d ew of the
grass has bathed my legs, and I
assure you that they feel very
"Now that is good news," said
the deer. Would you like to
take a little exercise? I can beat
you from here to the lake." (The
lake was at the other side of the
wood . )
"No, you can not," said the
antelope. I'll give you my dew
claws if 1 do not beat you."
"That suits me," said the deer.
The gray squirrel gave the
starting signal by dropping a nut.
Away they went.
The deer had one great advan
tage. He was used to running
among bushes and trees, and knew
how to avoid them, So he ran
swiftly and soon reached the lake.
But the antelope, accustomed to
running only on the open plain,
found the trees and bushes great
hindrances; and, therefore, he
failed to show his best speed.
Hence he was not much surprised
when, after having picked his way
with considerable trouble through
the thickets, he saw the deer wait
ing for him on the bank of the
"Ah, brother!" said the deer,
you see you can not run so fast
as I. ou have lost your dew-class."
So it came that the antelope lost
his dewclass, and has never had
any since, while the deer has kept
Time passed by, and the ante
lope, who was not satisfied with
the race, longed for another trial.
He watched and watched at the
edge of the wood, until one after
noon the deer came out. "Ah!
Brother Deer," he exclaimed;
"shall we try another race?"
"Of course I am willing," said
the deer; "indeed, if I do not beat
you again, I will give you my
Si" Well, I am ready," said the
"Now," queried the deer,
"where shall the race be run?"
"On this plain. We will run to
yonder hillock," replied the ante
lope. "He who first stands upon
its top wins the race."
The jaybird screamed for them
as a signal to start, and then away
they went. On the plain the ante
lope felt at home, and could do his
best. He flew like the wind, and
soon left the deer behind. Reach
ing the top of the little hill, he ate
some of the grass, and was quietly
chewing the cud when the deer
came up. And from that day to
this the deer loses his horns every
year and has to grow a new pair.
WHY MR. BILLY-GOAT'S TAIL IS
"They tell me," remarked Mr.
Rabbit suddenly, "that things
have got to that pass i n the
country we came from that even
Mr. Billy-Goat, who used to eat
meat, has dwindled away in mind
and body till he hangs around the
stable doors and eats straw for a
living. That's what Mr. Thimble
finger says, and he ought to know.
I suppose Billy is still bob-tailed?
I remember the very day he had
his tail broken off."
"Tell us about it," remarked
"Well, one Saturday afternoon
Mr Billy-Goat and Mr. Dog were
walking arm in arm along the
road, talking and laughing in a
sociable way, when all of a sudden
a big rain came up. Mr. Billy
Goat said he was mighty sorry
he left his parasol at home, because
the rain was apt t o make his
horns rust. Mr. Dog shook him
self and said he didn't mind water,
because when he gets wet the fleas
"But Mr. Billy-Goat hurried on
and Mr. Dog kept up with him
until they came to Mr. Wolf's
house, and they ran into the front
porch for shelter. The door was
shut tight, but Billy-Goat had on
his high-heel shoes that day, and
he made so much noise as he
tramped about that Mr. Wolf
opened his window and looked out.
When he saw who it was, he cried
" 'Hallo! this is not a nice day to
pay visits, but since you are here,
you may as well come in out of the
"But Mr. Dog shook his head
and flirted up dirt by scratching
on the ground with his feet. He
had smelt blood. M r. Billy
Goat saw how Mr. Dog ncted, and
he was afraid to go in. So he
shook his horns.
"You'd just as well come in and
sit by the fire," said Mr. Wolf,
unlatching the door.
But Mr. Dog and Mr. Billy
Goat thanked him kindly, and
said they didn't want to carry
mud into the house. They said
they would just stand in the porch
till the shower passed over. Then
Mr. Wolf took down his fiddle,
tuned it up and began to play.
In his day and time few could
beat him playing the fiddle. And
this time he played his level best,
for he knew if he could start Mr.
Billy-Goat to dancing he'd have
