The Lion And Other Beasts On A Hunt

The Lion and a lot of other Beasts made a plan to share whatever they

caught when they went on a hunt. The first day they went out they took a

fat Stag, which was cut up into three parts. The Lion said he would be

the chief judge, and laid his paw on one of the shares, and thus spoke:

"This first piece I claim as your lord and king; this part, too, I claim

as the most brave and most fierce of you all; and as for the third," he

cried, as he bent his big, bright eyes on the crowd of Beasts, "I mean

to take that, too, and let me see which of you dare stop me!" Might is

apt to make a right.
