THE GOLDEN BIRD
A certainking had a beautiful garden, and in the garden stood a tree which bore
golden apples. These apples were always counted, and about the time when
they began to grow ripe it was found that every night one of them was gone.
The king became very angry at this, and ordered the gardener to keep watch all
night under the tree. The gardener set his eldest son to watch; but about twelve
o'clock hefell asleep, and in the morning another of the apples was missing.
Then the second son was ordered to watch; and at midnight he too fell asleep,
and in the morning another apple was gone. Then the third son offered to keep
watch; but the gardener at first would not let him, for fear some harm should
come to him: however, at last he consented, and the young man laid himself
under the tree towatch. As the clock struck twelve he heard a rustling noise in
the air, and a bird came flying that was of pure gold; and as it was snapping at
one of the apples with its beak, the gardener's son jumped up and shot an
arrow at it. But the arrow did the bird no harm; only it dropped a golden feather

shoot at it. Then the fox said, 'Do not shoot me, for I will give you good counsel;
I know what your business is, and that you want to find the golden bird. You will
reach a village in the evening; and when you get there, you will see two inns
opposite to each other, one of which is very pleasant and beautiful to look at: go
not in there, but rest for the nightin the other, though it may appear to you to be
very poor and mean.' But the son thought to himself, 'What can such a beast as
this know about the matter?' So he shot his arrow at the fox; but he missed it,
and it set up its tail above its back and ran into the wood. Then he went his way,
and in the evening came to the village where the two inns were; and in one of
these were people singing,...
