THE DOG IN THE MANGER

THERE was once a Dog who lay all day long in a manger where there was plenty of hay. A Horse, a Cow, a Sheep, and a Goat came one by one and wanted to eat the hay. The Dog growled at them and would not let them have so much as a mouthful. Then an Ox came and looked in, but the Dog growled at him also.


[Illustration]

"You selfish fellow," said the Ox; "you cannot eat the hay. Why do you want to keep it all to yourself?"
