The Thief And The Dog

: Boys And Girls Bookshelf

One night a Thief came to a house that he meant to rob; but he knew that

he had no chance to do this till he had made the Dog who took care of it

quiet. So he threw to him some sops with the hope that that would stop

his bark. "Get out will you!" cried the Dog; "I did not trust you from

the first, but now I know that you mean no good!" Do not take a bribe

to do wrong.
