The Sandman's Stories
THE old white rooster was dead, t
The hens stood In groups of
threes and fours alt around the
yard, the turkeys were- gathered
around the big gobbler and seemed to
be talking vtry earnestly.
The ducks stood around the old drake,
who was shaking his head emphatically
1 as he talked t
The geese wero listening very atten
tively to ihe gander, and he was
stretching nls neck and seemed to bo
trying to impress them with Its length.
"I see no reason now why t should
not be king of the yard," he was say
ing; "white rooster is' dead and there Is
no other rooster to take his place. I
am going to' see the hens and ask them
What they think." , . tx .
"Whltq rooster is dead," ho said to
them, "and I thlhk I should be king
of the yard, ,my neck Is very long and I
can see oveft the heads of all the fowl,
I see no reason why I should not take
the place of white rooster"
The turkeys and tho geese seeing the
gander approach the hens, ran 'as fast
as they could to hear what he was say
ing. The turkey gobbler hearing the last
port of the gander's.remark said, "How
can you 'fay that you can see over
all heads, have you forgotten me and
my height? And as for being king," he
said, "the rooster never should have
been cock of the walk. I am a much
more, majestic looking bird than any
rooster. No, Indeed you should never
think' of ruling, 8lr Gander: I should bo
klngof the yard.''
The gobbler walked away, spreading
out his wings and letting them drag on
the ground and gobbling very loudly.
The ducks and the drake stood listen-,
ing to all this talk and as the gobbler
walked away, the drake said, "I cannot
understand why any one should think
of being king when I know so much
of the world. I am the one to rule, for
I have been all around the pond, and
It Is very large; because of my knowl
edge I think I should be king."
"He must not be king," whispered
one old hen to another, "he would
make us go in the water, and we will
all be drowned.
Thcv had talked a lonir time without
reaching any decision when the dog
"The old white rooster Is dead," said
the gobbler, who had returned with his
family to hear the dls6usslon, "and I
think I should be king, and the drake
and the sander think they should, but.
of course, you can see that I am best
suited to ruie tne yara.
"You can settle that very easily,
said the dog. "you can all take a turn
at being king, and In that way you
will know .who Is best suited to rule."
