6 Jack ajtd the Bean Stalk. ing what she possessed. By degrees scarcely anything was left but a cow. The poor woman, with tears in her eyes, for the first time in her life, could not help severely blaming] ack. " Oh, you wicked child/' said she, "by your course of 1ife you have at last brought us both to ruin ; nothing remains but my cow, and that must now be sold or we must starve.]} For a few minutes ] ack felt a degree of shame, but it was soon over, and becoming very hungry for want of food, he teased his mother to let him sell the cow at i he next village, to which at last she consented. As he was going along he met a butcher, who asked why he was driving the cow from home. Jack replied he was going to sell it. The butcher had some curious beans in his bag ; they were of various colours, and attracted ] ack's notice. This the butcher saw, and knowing Jack's easy temper, he thought he would take advantage of it, and offered them all for the poor cow. The silly boy supposed it a great offer; the bargain was at once struck, and the cow exchanged for a few paltry beans. \Vhen Jack told his mother, her patience quite forsook her, she in a moment kicked the beans away in a passion. They flew in all directions, some being scattered in the garden. J ack rose very c;,rly the next morning, and seeing something

7 Jack and t!te Bea;z Stalk. 5 uncommon from the room window, he ran down stairs into the garden, where he soon found that some of the beans had taken root and sprung up surprisingly. The stalks were of immense thickness, and had so entwined that they formed a ladder like a chain in appearance. Looking upwards, he could not see the top; it appeared to be lost in the clouds. He tried the stalk, found it firm and not to be shaken. He then quickly resolved to climb the bean-stalk, and see where it would lead to. Full of this plan, which made him forget even his hunger, Jack ran to tell his mother his intention. But she declared he should not go, saying he would break her heart. Jack, however, set out, and after dim bing for some hours, he reached the top of the bean-stalk tired and worn out. Looking round, he was surprised to find himself in a strange country. It seemed to be a barren desert ; not even a tree, shrub, house, or living creature was to be seen. Jack seated himself upon a block of stone, and thought of his poor mother. His hunger attacked him, and now he reflected with sorrow on his disobedience in climbing the bean-stalk against her will, and that he must die for want of food. However, he got up and walked on, hoping to see a house where he might beg something to eat. Presently he saw a handsome fairy at some distance. She was dressed in the most ele-

8 J ack and tlze Bea1l Stalk. gant manner, and had a small white wand in her hand, on the top of which was a peaeock of pure gold. She came near him and said ' I will now tell you a story your mother dare not. But before I begin, I require a solemn promise on your part to do what I command ; and unless you perform exactly what I direct you to do, your mother and yourself shall both be destroyed.' Jack was rather frightened at this caution, but promised to follow her directions, and the fairy went on to say :-Your father was a rich man, very good-hearted, and constantly assisting the poor. His kind disposition procured him the esteem of the good, but could not screen him from the envious and wicked part of mankind.... ~ ot many miles from your father's house lived a powerful giant, who was the dread of all the country for his cruelty aud oppression; he was envious, CO\'etous, and cruel, and hated to hear others talked of for their goodness or humanity. He vowed to do your father a mischief, so that he might no longer hear his good actions made the subject of every one's conversation, and he soon devised a plan to put his wi,_ked intentions into practice. Ha, ing removed quickly near your father's house, he gave out that he had just lost all he possessed by an earthquake, and found it difficult to escape with his life. Your father belie, ecl his story, and pitied him ; he lodged him in

9 Jack and t!ze Bean Stalk. 7 his own house, and treated the giant and his wife as visitors of distinction. Before long, however, the You were then only three giant killed your father. months old ; your mother had you in her arms, in a distant part of the house, and was ignorant of what was gomg on. ] udge of her horror when, on going into the parlour, she found it all blood, and your father quite dead. The giant was going to serve your mother and you as he had done your father, but your mother fell at his feet, and besought him to spare your life and her own. The cruel giant for a short time was struck with remorse, and spared your life and hers, but first he made her.swear solemnly that she never would tell the story of her wrongs to any one. Your mother took you in her anns and fled. The giant, having gained your father's confidence, knew where to find all his treasure ; with this he soon loaded himself and his wife, and then set the house on fire. Your poor mother, in sad distress, wandered with you a great many miles away, not knowing where to rest. At last she settled in the cottage where you were brought up, and it was entirely owing to her fear of the giant that she has never mentioned your father to you. It was I who secretly caused you to take the beans for the cow. By my power the beanstalk grew to so great a height, and formed a la_dder.

10 8 Jack and t!ze Bea;t Stalk. The giant lives in this country ; you are the person appointed to punish him for his wickedness. You will have dangers and difficulties to encounter, but you must go on until you avenge the death of your father, or you will not prosper in any thing you wish to do. As to the giant's possessions, everything he has is yours, although he has unjustly deprived you of it ; you may take, therefore, whatever part of it you can. One thing I strictly charge you, do not let your mother know you are aware of your father's history till you see me again. Go along the direct road, you will soon see the house where your enemy lives. \Vhile you do as I order, I will protect and guard you ; but remember, if you disobey my commands, a dreadful punishment awaits you.' As soon as the fairy had ended, she disappeared, leaving Jack to go on his journey. He walked on till after sunset, when to his great joy, he espied a large house. This agreeable sight reviyed his drooping spirits ; he doubled his speed, and soon reached it. A plain-looking woman was at the door ; he accosted her, begging she would give him a morsel of bread and a night's lodging. She expressed the greatest surprise at seeing him ; and said it was quite an uncommon thing to see a human being near their house, for it was well known that her husband was a very cruel and

11 Jack and tlze Bean Stalk. 9 very powerful giant, who would eat nothing but human flesh, if he could possibly get it. This account greatly terrified Jack ; but he trusted to the fairy's promise of protection. The good woman at last suffered herself to be persuaded, for she was of a tender and generous disposition, and took him intd the house. First they entered a fine large hall, magnificently furnished ; they then passed through several spacious rooms all in the same style of grandeur ; but they appeared to be quite forsaken. A long gallery was next entered : it was just light enough to show that instead of a wall, there was on one side a grating of iron, which parted off a dismal dungeon, whence issued the groans of several poor victims whom the cruel giant reserved in confinement for his own voracious appetite. They were aroused by a loud l~nocking at the street door. The giant's wife ran to hide him in the oven, and then went to let in her husband ; and Jack heard him accost her in a voice like thunder, saying, "Wife, wife, I smell fresh meat!" "Oh, my dear," replied she, " it is nothing but the people in the dungeon." The giant appeared to believe her, and then went into the very kitchen where poor Jack was concealed, who now shook and trembled, and was more terrified than he had yet been. At last the monster seated himself quietly by the fireside, while

12 IO J ark and the Bmn S talk. his wife prepared supper. 13y degrees Jack recovered himself enough to look at the giant through a small crevice. He was astonished to see how much he devoured, and almost thought that he would never be done with drinking and eating. \Vhen supper was ended, the giant desired his wife to bring him his hen. A most beautiful bird was brought, and placed on the table before him. Jack's curiosity was very great to see what would happen. He saw that it stood quiet before him, but that every time the giant said "Lay!" the hen laid an egg of solid gold. The giant amused himself a long while with his hen ; meanwhile his wife went to bed. At length the giant fell asleep by the fireside and snored like the roaring of a cannon. At day-break Jack finding the giant not likely to awake soon, crept softly from his hiding-place, seized the hen, and ran off with her. He easily found his way to the bean stalk, and got down easier than he expected. II is mother was overjoyed to sec him. " 1 row, ::\I other," said Jack, " I have brought you home that which will quickly make you rich." The hen laid as many golden eggs as they desired ; they sold them, and in a little time became possessed of great riches. For some months Jack and his mother li, ccl, cry happy~ but he longed to pay the giant another visit He recollected the fairy's commands, and feared that if he delayed to attend to them, he should suffer for it. Accordingly he disguised himself, and stained his skin so that he felt sure no one would know him. Early in the morning he again climbed up the bean stalk, and

13 Jack and the BeaJt Stalk. I I reached the giant's house late in the evening. The woman was at the door as before. Jack told her a pitiful tale, and prayed for a night's lodgings. She told him that she had one night admitted a poor hungry boy ; that he had stolen one of the giant's most precious treasures ; and that ever since her husband had used her very cruelly. At Jack's earnest entreaty, however, she took him into the kitchen, gave him some supper, and hid him in a lumber closet. Soon after the giant returned, walking in so heavily as to make the house shake. He seated himself by a good ftre, saying, with a most savage look," I smell fresh meat." The wife replied that it was owing to the crows having brought a piece of carrion, and dropped it on the roof of the house. The giant took his supper, and ordered his wife to bring his bags of gold and silver. They were both placed before the giant, who scolded his wife because she had been slow. The poor woman replied, trembling with fear, that they were so heavy she could scarcely lift them, and that she had nearly fainted under the weight. At this the cruel giant grew so angry that he raised his hand to give her a blow, but she luckily escaped, and went to bed, leaving him to count over his treasures. After the giant had counted over all his money and replaced it again in the bags, he went to sleep, snoring like the roaring of the sea; after which Jack stole out of his hiding-place, went ncar the giant, and had laid his hand upon one of the bags, when a little clog started from under the giant's chair, and barked furiously. Jack gave him-

14 I2 J ack and 1/ze Bean Stalk. self up for lost ; fear so riveted him to the spot, that instead of running away, he stood quite still, although expecting his big enemy to awake every minute. The giant slept on, however, and the dog got tired of barking. Jack then looked round, and seeing a large piece of meat, he threw it to the dog, who took it into a closet. Being thus delivered from a noisy enemy, he seized the bags, reached the door in safety, and soon arrived at the bottom of the bean stalk. \Vhen he got to his mother's cottage, he found it quite deserted. Greatly surprised, he ran into the village, and an old woman directed him to a house, where he found his poor mother apparently dying. On being informed of Jack's safe return, his mother by degrees recovered, and soon got well again. Jack presented her with his two valuable bags ; the cottage was again well furnished, and he and his mother lived liappily together. For three years Jack had not mounted the bean stalk, but he could not forget it, though he feared to tell his mother. otwithstan ding the comforts Jack enjoyed at home, his mind kept continually upon the bean stalk, and upon the fairy's warning to him in case of his disobedience. Poor Jack could think of nothing else ; it was in vain his trying to amuse himself; he became thoughtful, and would arise at the dawn of day, and sit and look at the bean stalk for hours together, and did his utmost to conquer the great desire he felt for another journey up the bean stalk. Finding, however, that his inclination grew too powerfill for him, he began to make secret preparations for

15 Jack mtd tlze Bean Stalk. I3 his journey ; and on the longest day arose as soon as it was light, ascended the bean stalk, and reached the top with some trouble. He found everything the same as on the former occasions. He arrived at the giant's house in the evening, and found his wife standing as usual at the door. Jack now appeared so different that she did not seem to have any recollection ofhim. Pleading poverty and hunger he gained admittance, and was concealed in the copper. When the giant returned in the evening, he said, " I smell fresh meat!" but Jack felt quite composed, as he had said so before, and was soon satisfied ; however, the giant started up suddenly, and, notwithstanding all his wife could say, he searched all around the room. Whilst this was going on, Jack was terrified exceedingly, and ready to die with fear, wishing himself at home a thousand times ; but when the giant came to the copper, and put his hand upon the lid, Jack thought his death-warrant was signed. The giant ended his search there without lifting the lid of the copper, and sat himself quietly down. Shortly afterwards the giant commenced to a great supper, and, as soon as he had finished, commanded his wife to fetch down his harp. Jack very soon took the liberty of peeping from under the copperlid, and soon saw the most beautiful harp that could be imagined ; it was placed by the giant on the table, who said, "Play!" and it instantly played of its own accord without being touched. The music lulled the giant into a sound sleep. Jack at once determined, got out of the copper, and took

16 Jack ajtd the Bean Stalk. the harp. The harp was a fairy, and it called out loudly, " Master, master!" The giant a woke, stood up, and tried to pursue] ack; but he had drunk so much that he could scarcely stand. Jack ran as fast as he could ; in a little time the giant recovered sufficiently to walk slowly, or rather to reel after him. Jack soon reached the top of the bean stalk. The giant called to him all the way along the road in a voice like thunder, and was sometimes very ncar him. The moment Jack got down the bean stalk, he called for a hatchet, which was immediately brought him. ] ust at that instant the giant was beginning to descend ; but Jack with his hatchet cut the bean stalk close off at the root, and the giant fell headlong into the garden. The fall killed him. and Jack and his mother lived aftenvards happy, and in peace, form t '1Y years. A lldilo.. ~:>< A.-.;u SA 1.'1 COATS: A. GUTIII!IE.
