THE WOLF AND THE GOAT

[68]

A
WOLF saw a Goat feeding at the top of a steep precipice, where he could not reach her.

"My dear friend," said the Wolf, "be careful! I am afraid you will fall and break your neck. Do come down to the meadow, where the grass is fresh and green."


[Illustration]

"Are you very hungry?" said the Goat. "And is it your dinner time? And would you like to eat me? I think I will not go down to the meadow to-day, thank you."

And she capered contentedly about on the edge of the rock, as safe from falling as she was from the greedy Wolf with his false care for her.
