THE WASHINGTON TIMES, FfHDAY, . FEBRUARY-
For The Times' Children ...
Just Before It's Bedtime
THE WISE GOOSE AND
ONCE upon a time a hard-working
fanner lived on a poor es
tate in a country where he
found It very difficult to make
a living. The only animal he had was
a goose, which had been given to nlm
because Its leg was broken. But the
farmer had tended kindly to the fowl,
and It had broken Into a big; fat. white i
bird that waddled about very .happily
on the farm.
The favorite resting place for the
goose was just at the foot of the chim
ney. Here she would sleep every night.
And Just, above her in the hole of an
old, dead oak. lived an ancient owl.
He had been in this same nest for many
years, and every one about the country
thought he must be very learned. He
always had bits of paper hThlscIawa
as if studying, so the children made up
a song about him which said:
How very, very wise.
With his big. round eyes.
The owl In the old tree look
He must know an awful lot.
For he's always In one spot.
Studying his funny paper books.
One nltrht the noor. farmer, whose
f name was Jens, sat by the nre,where
his last stick of wood was burning.
"It seems that the harder I work the
less I make," he sighed. "I hoe and
plough and weed my crops from dawn
till sunset, but Just as they are about
to ripen, they suddenly wither away.
My rosy apples drop from the trees,
my wheat dries up on Its stalk, my
corn grows yellow and hard In the
field what use In my trying?"
Just then the big goose crept in the
door and laid her head on Jens' knee.
"Well, old lady." ho said gently to
the fowl, "we will stick It out another
month. My crops are Just about In
fine condition now, but if they fall me
suddenly, as they have done for, sev
eral years, we will pack up and go
Now the goose was a wise bird. Of
course. It has been the habit of Ig
norant people for ages to say that
geese arc silly, but that Is not true a
bit. The big white goose understood
every word Jens said, and determined
to watch and see what made the
She remembered that every season
Just as the crops were ripe mere
would be a strange noise aooui me
chlmny. so she decided to keep an eye
on It this year.
The next morning she saw jens
to the fields, where his crops were
looking fine in the sun. and his trees
full of apples. Presently she heard
talking In the branch over her head.
"A handsome bird like you ought to
know everything." said the voice. "And
If you will look at the sun steadily to
day for an hour, you will find you know
everything In the high schcol books.
"AH right." replied the owl. "I will
follow your advice a wise fellow like
myself can never stop gathering wis
dom." Then the goose saw a black little
woman creep down the tree and run
away in the shadows.
-Ah ha!" cackled the goose to her
self. "So that Is the old witch of the

would be prowling around. I Just be

The foolish owl sat up for an Jiour,
looking at the sun. and It made his
eyes '"so Tweak, he could not see at all

the foot of the chimney and pretended
to be asleep. .Presently there was a

her voice and beat on the window with
her wings, then she dragged the witch's
broomstick to the door. Jens heard
the noise and ran out, just as the witch,
who was frightened. Jumped down oft

But Jens knew the witch and grabbed
her broom up in the twinkling of an

her own broomstick. "I will make sure
you never come again." So he chased

home and found his crops all growing
