THE HARE AND THE HOUND

A
HOUND, having started a Hare which proved to be a capital runner, at length gave up the chase. His master, seeing it, said, "The little one is the best runner, eh?"

"Ah, Master," answered the Dog, "itís all very well to laugh; but you do not see the difference between us. He was running for his life, while I was only running for my dinner."
