The Trees and the Ax
Once upon a time a man came into a forest.He said to the trees,“Will you give me a piece of hard wood ”
The tree said,“Yes,we'll give you a good price of hard wood.”
He was very glad to get a good piece of wood.He hurried home with it.At once he made a new handle of his ax.
Then he went to the forest again and began to cut down all the best trees in the forest.
The trees were very sad.They said to one another,“We suffer for our own foolishness.”

There were many mice in a house. The man of the house got a cat. The cat killed many of the mice.
Then the oldest mouse said, " All mice must come to my hole tonight, and we will think what we can do about this cat."
All the mice came. Many mice spoke, but none knew what to do. At last a young mouse stood up and said, "We must put a bell on the cat. Then, when the cat comes near, we shall hear the bell and run away and hide. So the cat will not catch any more mice."
Then the old mouse asked, " Who will put the bell on the cat?"
No mouse answered.
He waited, but still no one answered.
At last he said, "It is not hard to say things; but it is harder to do them."
