THE BOYS AND THE FROGS

S
OME Boys, playing near a pond, saw a number of Frogs sporting in the water.

"Let us see if we can hit them; it is great fun to make them dive," said one; and they all began to pelt them with stones.

At last, after several Frogs had been hit, one of them put his head up out of the water, and said: "Pray stop, Boys. Throwing stones at us may be [95] great sport for you, but it is death to us. We have done you no harm, and alas! you have already killed or wounded three of our family."
