Tho man was carrying a large iron kettle on his back, in one ' hand he held th legs of ga live chicken, in the other a cane, and he was leading a goat, as they were icomiog to a deep ' dark ravine, the woman said to the man "I'm afraid to go through that ravine with you, v it is a lonely plaoe and you might overpower me and kiss - me by force." . ' ; . "If you were afraid of that," said the man "you should'ut have, walked with mo at all ; how can . I possibly overpower you and tfien kiss you , by force when I have this great iron ket tle on my bask, a cane in one hand and a live obicken in tbe other and leading this goat ? I might as well be tied hand and foot P-' "Yes, replied the woman; "but if you should stick your oane into the ground and tie the goat to it, and turn the kettle bottom Bide up . and put the , chicken , into it, then you might wickedly kiss me, in spite of my rcsistnaco. . , - t "Success to thy ingenuity, O woman! said the rejoioing man to himself. "It should have never have thought of such an expedient." , , And when thoy came to the ravine he stuck his cane in the ground and tied the goat to it, gave the chiokeo to tlie woman- saying : '. Hold it while I cut some grass for the goat." and then, lowering the kettle from his shoulders, imprisoned the chicken un der it, and wickedly kissed the woman, as she was afraid he would.
