ONCE upon a time a mouse, a bird, and a sausage took it into their heads to keep house together : and to be sure they managed to live for a long time very comfortably and happily; and beside that added a great deal to their store, so as to become very rich.

It was the bird's business to fly every day into the forest and bring wood; the mouse had to carry the water, to make the fire, and lay the cloth for dinner; but the sausage was cook to the household.

He who is too well off often begins to be lazy and to long for something fresh.

Now it happened one day that our bird met with one of his friends, to whom he boasted greatly of his good plight.

But the other bird laughed at him for a poor fool, who worked hard, whilst the two at home had an easy job of it: for when the mouse had made her fire and fetched the water, she went and laid down in her own little room till she was called to lay the cloth; and the sausage sat by the pot, and had nothing to do but to see that the food was well cooked; and when it was meal time, had only to butter, salt, and get it ready to eat, which it could do in a minute.

The bird flew borne, and having laid his burden on the ground, they all sat down to table, and after they had made their meal slept soundly until the next morning.

Could any life be more glorious than this?

The next day the bird, who had been told what to do by his friend, would not go into the forest, saying, he had waited on them, and been made a fool of long enough; they should change about, and take their turns at the work.

Although the mouse and the sausage begged hard that things might go on as they were, the bird carried the day.

So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon the sausage to fetch wood, while the mouse was to be cook, and the bird was to bring the water.

What happened by thus taking people from their proper work?

The sausage set out towards the wood, the little bird made a fire, the mouse set on the pot, and only waited for the sausage to come home and bring wood for the next day.

But the sausage kept away so long that they both thought something must have happened to him, and the bird flew out a little way to look out for him; but not far off he found a dog in the road, who said be had met with a poor little sausage, and taking him for fair prey, had laid hold of him and knocked him down.

The bird made a charge against the dog of open robbery and murder; but words were of no use, for the dog said, he found the sausage out of its proper work, and under false colours; and so be was taken for a spy and lost his life.

The little bird took up the wood very sorrowfully, and went home and told what he had seen and beard.

The mouse and he were very much grieved, but agreed to do their best and keep together.

The little bird undertook to spread the table, and the mouse got ready the dinner; but when she went to dish it up, she fell into the pot and was drowned.

When the bird came into the kitchen and wanted the dinner to put upon the table, no cook was to be seen; so he threw the wood about here, there, and every where, and called and sought on all sides, but still could not find the cook.

Meantime the fire fell upon the wood and set it on fire; the bird hastened away to get water, but his bucket fell into the well, and he after it; and so ends the story of this clever family.

The End.
