And his master said: Thou hast been a true and faithful servant to me, so thou shalt have thy wages. So he gave him a piece of gold that was as large as his head, which Hans wrapt up in his handkerchief, and throwing it over his shoulder, jogged away homewards quite contentedly. But as be went along, not over has tily, a rider-capre up *to him, manun ted on abearctiful active horse. "Ah," said Hans to himself, "what a nice thing it would be to have a horse ! There my 6gntleman sits, .just as if he were on a chair; there is no break ing toes against stones with him ; no wearing of shoes ; and yet on ke.goes and gets to his journey's end in a twinkling without knowing how !" The horseman heard this, and called aloud: "Ah, don't you see what a load I have here to carry; it is all gold to be sure, but I can hardly hold up my head under the burden, and it is. peeling the skin off my shoulder." "Then what say you to an exchange, my friend; I will give you my horse, if you will give me your load.'5 "With all my heart," said'Hans. "But I'll tellyou, friend, you'll have a heavy burden of it, that's all." The horseman leaped from the saddle, took the gold, give. Hans a foot up, and put the bridle into his hands, saying, "When you want to travel fast, you have -only to smack your lips and call out 'hopp, hopp !"' Hans was quite delighted to find himself so, nicely seated on his fine horse, and rode gaily and briskly along. At last he thought he would like to go a little faster, so he smack ed his lips, and called out hopp, hopp! as the horseman had directed him. At the well-known sound the mettlesome steed bolted fotth like an arrow; and before IHans knew what lihe was about, he ±funrln himself layv ing in a ditch in a sad plight. The horse would have cent inuued his course, had not a peasant, who lhatppeed to he passing with a cow to market. caught it by the bridle and stopt it. When Hans had got upon his feet again, he wes sadly vexed, and said to the peasant; "It is no joke this riding business; such a beast as this thinks nothing of sending a man over its head and breaking his neck ; but I am off now and catch me getting on again? I like that cow of yours much better than than this tricky sort of an animal ; one can walk lei surely behind her, and get milk and butter and chleese eve'ry day from her What would I not give for such a nice creature ?" "Now then," said the peasant, "since you like my cow so well, I will give her to you for your horse, if you choose." Hans accepted the bargain with a thousand thanks. and'thIe peasant leaped upon his horse and road off. Hans drove on .his cow in high spirits, thinking hie had made a !:ost excellent bargain. "Now," said :le to himself, "if I only have a piece of bread-and that I can surely get at any time-I shall always have but ter and cheese to eat to it; and then' when I am thirsty I have only to milk my cow; what more would you wish to have, Hans ?" So when he came to an inn, he halted, eat uplwl his bread and gave away his last piece of money for half-a-pint of beer, after which he proceeded with his cow towards the' village where his mother dwelt. But as he went along the heat of the , day increased; and at noon Hans found himself alone on a wide moore where there was no shelter from the overpowering rays of the sun. He was now parched with thirst; but, thought Hans, "I can 'help this presently; I will milk my cow, and soon get the better of my thirst." S.o I will milk my cow, So he tied her to the stump of .a de cayed tree, and tried to milk her in to hisleathern cap; but could not ob tain a single drop of milk. Long he toiled to no purpose; and at last the restive animal gave him a hearty kick which upset him into a ditch. It chanced, however, that a butcher carne past that way, with a pig in a barrow. "What has laid youthere '1" said the butcher to Hans, as he gave him a hand out of the ditch. Hans told him all that had befallen him' whereupon the butcher -handed him his bottle and exhorted -him to take a good pull at it, for as to getting milk from his cow it was ridiculous to attempt it ; the beast was old and fit only for the slaughter-house." "Aye, aye," said Hans in a tone of despair, "' never thought of that. But what could I make of her though I were to kill her ? I hate cow flesh; had it been a nice little porker, like that you lih e got there, one might have made something of it." ".Well, Hans," replied the butcher, "it you wish it, you can have my pig ftr your cow." "Heaven reward your kindness!" exclaimed Hans, giving thel butcher his cow, and driving off the barrow and the pig. IHan, was onlce more at ease, antd jogged. on right contentedly. But ,.re he had gone much farther he met a tfollow carrying a fine white goose under his arm. Hians stopped and talked with him, and told him all his :udveutures ; and in return was told that the goose was intended for a christening teast. -"Only feel how heavy it is," said the man ; "and yet it is not above eight weeks old; he who has the carving of her may tte and comne again, I trow." "Yes," aids IIaus, weighing thle goose in his hand, "it is a fine bird; but my pig is no small matter either." To this the man replied with a very knowing shake of his head.
