A STORY FOR THE LITTLE
The Way Hans Made a Fortune
There Was once a poor mechanic
Who .had two sons. One was a
very good, :amiable, industrious
boy, named Hans; but he was by
no means so smart as his brother
,'ll - otnerich, and therefore was not
half . 'asi.inneh , Inved by his silly
father,' although Hemel rich Was 'an
: wicked fellow.,
-e-verycinn - g - was so much'dearer
than usual, that the poor man's
purse wasalthost empty. "What
0 `the World kin I to do?" said he.
.'We must line. My customers
haVe been very, 'attentive to me ;
politeness requires that I should
go and see thorn in return ; and
who knoWs but, :thinking Of tile
hardnessof the times, they may
pay some of their bills?'
So said, so done. Early the:
next morning. he set 'out, and
knocked at many a stately door - ;
'bitt he was not long in facing
'that the riebest men were not al
.iVays the best paymaster's, fOir'nb
one Money - to pay - bills, or even
tithe to look over them. In the
evening the poor. ;man came
weary and diAbonrais;ea,.and bethk
ing himself to the ‘public house,
threw himself . bn the bencl t hefore
the door. - Ile had .o,'Ven the
heart to talk With 'tho - Se'atont him,
and therefore soon found himself
all alone. He kid not want to go
home, for he could not bear to look':
at the sad face of his. wife:who was !
too, much annoyed at being
ed to give up a new petticoat on
which she had set. her heart to be
a very pleasant companion..
While he sat there busied with his
own thoughts, he could not help
hearing what was going on among
A stranger who bad just :a`tijiV&l
from the Capital was that ' I
the king's beautiful danghter had
been spell-bound by a wicked ma-1
gician, and must remain in bon,
'dage !all !her 'life, 12-nless some one',
gicixin's . chaith's. The diStm,ssed
king bad offered great rewai.ds to
anyone who would free her. He
should have the 'lady for his wife,
and, any qhatit'fty Of rich treasure
beside. . -
To 'el this the :poor W6rktnan
listened—first with half an ear,
then with a Whore Pne,, and at last
with two. 'Why,' said he to, him
self, 'should not my son Hemelrich
try as any other? He is : a little
wild, .I know ; but he has ple . rity
of brains. What is to prevent him
from getting the lady and her
money see too it. I'm sure
even the lag might be proud 'a
Porgetting his troubles and the
unkindness of his custonrers„ he
ran quickly b o*. 'lid Wn
.the afThir to - his Wite. 'She agreed
with hini VeriValy:
'lf,' said She, 'it - haa We'en 'that
booby nails, I should say No at

'Mk* : as Helmerich caniyet help
bat to succeed, and I'm sure both
the lady aria her father will admire
Early the next morning he call
ed Helmerich, - and Itesii•ed him to
borrow a horse and such weapons
as a gentleman would require, and
'start at once ukyon the ; journey,—
nelying upon MS great reputation
for brains and good loolis, he felt
hs siire of his success as his father
did, and promised his parents that
as soon as he was married he would
take them to ride in a coach and
six, and try to give his stupid
brother a lift in the world, too.
Proudly he set out on his way,
and amused himself by torment
ing everything he met. Little
birds sat on the bushes singing
praises to God in their oivn wlty ;
he switched then down with his
riding whip. Then he came to an
ant-hill, just finished. He made
his horse go over it and paw it up ;
and when the poor little insets, iii
their fright, ran up' upon hitt and
horse, too, he crushed and killed
every one he could see. Next he
came to a beautiful • clear pond,
where some ducks were swimming
There were twelve. He drove
them to the shore, and killed elev
en, but the twelfth escaped. Then
he came to a bee hive. lie switch
ed and slashed round the hive un
tinthe terrified insects fte* out to.
see.what was the matter; and then
flashed a charge of gunpowder a
mong theti killing. orstunning the
whole swarm. It seemed to de
light him to hurt or destroy all Hy.,
ing things, not ihat he wanted .
them' for foed but for The;:wicked
pleasure, of seeing them suffer : and
Just as the sun
merich reached:. the castle in,which
the princess was shut upi. and
knocked lustily at the closed gate.
There was no answer. Ire knock
ed again. Presentlya small round
window was opened, and out of it
was thrust the head and face of an
old woman .all covered with cob
webs. She asked what he want
