SCANDINAVIAN There was once a baron who was a very hnrdand cruel quick to get and slow to spend greedy of gain and loth to give an oppressor of the poor and a spoiler of the On his property lived a poor widow with an only whom little by he had reduced to the lowest depth of poverty so that at last she was unable to pay the rent due for her poor hovel of a house and although it was by his own extortion and injustice that she was reduced to such he refused to wait a single day for his but threatened to turn her and her son out of the and seize the mis erable remains of their The poor woman returned homo and sent out her son to try and borrow some money from their friends but one and all began to make ex for no ono would help them for fear of the So for that was tho name of the widows returned home ward quite out of Byandby his path led him across a little stream of water and when he approached the banks he saw a old man standing beside as soon as he saw asked him to help him as he was too weak to cross by So Holgar took him by the for he was a very good natural and led him safely over the slippery and then wishing him a kind good and was walking away when the old man called after him to stop and Do not go away until I have thanked you and paid you for your 1 dont want to be llolgar said I am not such a churl us to refuse to help a fellowClcuturc in distress BO good said the old putting his hand in his sack and pulling out a little threelegged copper with 1 am very much answered but tho pot will bo of no use for the truth is we have nothing to boil in Never mind you about said tho old you just put it on the lire and see what will So llolgar took the was for all the world like any other copper and went home to his showed her what he had and told her how all their fronds had refused tc help But the mother kicked the pot away with her and be gan rocking herself backwards and forwards on her lamenting the unkindness of their friends and llolgar said Mother 1 shall do as the old man told shall set the pot on the So he set it on but no sooner did the pot feel the smoke and flames curling about it that it cried 1 run I I run Where do you run to asked the wid suddenly stopping her starting up but the pot only 1 run I run then quoth the and fetch us some such as I saw on the barons Scarcely had she spoken when the pot flew out of the cottage door and presently returned filled with the most delicious Oh it smelt so nice for moment or two the mother and son stood quite soon recovering their they fell to and ate it all But Holgar Let us see if it can bring us anything else but vegetables for food is a good thing but money is So he put tho pot on the fire to make it burn and as soon as ever the pot felt the flames it called out as I run 1 run Hun said and bring us the ten pounds wo owe the So the pot flew and when it came back there were ten sovereigns in the bot It is a splendid said Holgar and then the next day he went and paid the baron the Kvery evening they ordered the pot to fetch wliat they needed food and sometimes the latter of which they saved in order to buy another And where the pot got the things it brought them they did not Perhaps it ran to the old man who hiul given it to llolgar but in truth the pot got them from the barons kitchen and the barons Now the being a great went every day to his moneybox and counted his and he WHS sorely vexed and troubled when he found something There must be some one who has a false he thought so then the next night he hid himself behind the curtain and presently he heard a ant peeping out he saw the window open of its own ar and a little copper pot on three legs come It knocked with its handle on the moneybox and the lid Hew the pot scraped into itself some and jumped out at the and the lid and window shut of their own said the this beats Gaffer Clinchs cat But the next night the baron was on the watch and as soon as the pot had collected tho money it he laid hold if it by one and he thought that now the thief was But lu and be hold the pot was stronger than he and dragged him across tho room up to the and if he had not let go its it would surely have llown oil with Oh Oh you wicked I will have you and your son hung and So it is your pot that has been robbing every and breaking open my money In vain the widow and Holgar pro tested they knew not where tho pot got the things it brought There baron sat boiling with refuting to listen to a Hold pot 1 said when he saw tho baron trying to get up if you mean to revenge younelf in that you shall sit there No sooner had he said than baron found himself so tightly glued to the pot that ho could though ha tried with all his to get free of He tugged and tugged until he and the pot both rolled over the floor and Holgar and hit mother stood by laughing until their Bides When the baron Jouod lhat all strength was of no he stopped rolling and Let me good people and I will not punish you at That will not said Holgar I will have tho lease of my fathers former and you must supply me with and and and all things necessary for a No no roared the writhing and twisting himself about M he that I never will I will die first Ah said never is You may sit thero and think about So ho put on his and went out of But ho hod hardly been gone above a quarter of an when his mother came running after him and called him tack and as soon as tho baron saw bo told him he would consent to all he Then Holgar sent for some of the and put it all down on and made the baron sign and then told him be might get up and go home as soon as he So he and slunk quite ashamed of grindinghis teeth for very and vowing he was so fraid of Holgar and his that he thought it to keep his and let him and his mother alone for the Perhaps had he known the truth he might behaved less for the very day that he fulfilled his and put Holgar and his mother in possession of the the copper greatly to Holgars disap But no doubt he was better with out for odd ways of getting things are generally wrong and the enchanted pot might not always have been so discreet as to have taken only what justly belonged to his and so might in the end hate brought them
