what I give you will be taken away from myself. and he left the little man standing and went on. But Dummling begged so long that at last he said. you do not understand anything about it. And this was the little grey man's doing. but she had scarcely touched her sister than she was held fast. I am so hungry and thirsty. so that he had to go home and have it bound up. Now the host had three daughters. like the eldest.When he entered the forest he met a little grey-haired old man who bade him good-day. it was not long before he made a false stroke. a cake and a bottle of wine. and you will find something at the roots. and as soon as Dummling had gone out she seized the goose by the wing. and with it a bottle of sour beer.

Then Dummling said. went to an inn where he thought he would stay the night. it was a fine sweet cake. The father answered. cut it down. and taking her with him. but her finger and hand remained sticking fast to it. and let me have a draught of your wine. I have only cinder-cake and sour beer. and asked him for a piece of cake and a drink of wine. and when Dummling pulled out his cinder-cake. do give me a piece of cake out of your pocket. do let me go and cut wood. if that pleases you. Then the little man took leave of him. I will give you good luck. and would have liked to have one of its golden feathers. But the clever son answered. and the sour beer had become good wine. His punishment. give me a piece of your cake and a drink out of your bottle. Dummling went and cut down the tree. be off with you. and said. and he left the little man standing and went on. leave it alone. The eldest thought. and when it fell there was a goose sitting in the roots with feathers of pure gold. and his mother gave him. I shall soon find an opportunity of pulling out a feather. He lifted her up. and greeting him. So they ate and drank. There stands an old tree. But when he began to hew down a tree. since you have a good heart. His mother gave him a cake made with water and baked in the cinders. said. I shall have none for myself. But the second son. however. father. Dummling answered. was not delayed. . so that he had to be carried home. we will sit down and eat. be off. and the axe cut him in the arm. and are willing to divide what you have. when he had made a few blows at the tree he struck himself in the leg. your brothers have hurt themselves with it. and after that the little man said. if I give you my cake and wine. said sensibly enough. thinking only of how she might get a feather for herself. you will get wiser by hurting yourself. I am so hungry and thirsty. The second came soon afterwards. So they sat down. When he came to the forest the little old grey man met him likewise. After this the second son went into the forest.

But she did not understand why she was to keep away. I have such a great thirst and cannot quench it. so he went into the forest. cold water I cannot stand. He was astonished at this and called out. one behind the other. said Dummling. Do not forget that we have a christening to-day. sake keep away.At last the third also came with the like intent. the parson called out to them and begged that they would set him and the sexton free. and he answered. keep away. and as soon as she saw the seven people running on and on. he went with his goose and all her train before the king's daughter. now right. But they had scarcely touched the sexton when they were held fast. and was himself obliged to run behind. So they had to spend the night with the goose. The others are there. but the king did not like the son-in-law. and the others screamed out. In the middle of the fields the parson met them. and in the same place where he had felled the tree. running behind three girls. why are you running across the fields after this young man. Is that seemly? At the same time he seized the youngest by the hand in order to pull her away. When Dummling heard this. two laborers came with their hoes from the fields. the parson. wherever his legs took him. and when he saw the procession he said. and running after him he took him by the sleeve. where a king ruled who had a daughter who was so serious that no one could make her laugh. she thought. just come with me and you shall be satisfied. but was also held fast to it. now left. but as soon as she had touched her sister. . and now there were seven of them running behind Dummling and the goose. I can help you. Thereupon Dummling asked to have her for his wife. There. he saw a man sitting. she remained sticking fast to her. your reverence. hi. but that to me is like a drop on a hot stone. for shame. who had a very sorrowful face. and as if she would never stop. Whilst the five were trotting thus one behind the other. who could certainly help him. Dummling asked him what he was taking to heart so sorely. So he had put forth a decree that whosoever should be able to make her laugh should marry her. The next morning Dummling took the goose under his arm and set out. but as soon as he touched her he likewise stuck fast. and ran to them. she began to laugh quite loudly. whither away so quickly. Dummling thought of the little grey man. without troubling himself about the three girls who were hanging on to it. for goodness. a barrel of wine I have just emptied. and made all manner of excuses and said he must first produce a man who could drink a cellarful of wine. you good-for-nothing girls. Before long the sexton came by and saw his master. They were obliged to run after him continually. Soon afterwards he came to a city. I may as well be there too.

and I do all this because you once were kind to me. where in the same place there sat a man who was tying up his body with a strap. since you have given me to eat and to drink. and said. where all the flour in the whole kingdom was collected. But when they got there the boy laughed at them for their pains. but went straight into the forest. Still another day the boy tried the same trick. As soon as you come sailing back in it. Then Dummling for the third time asked for his bride. but what good is that when one has such a hunger as I. and before the day was out he had emptied all the barrels. My stomach remains empty. and I must tie myself up if I am not to die of hunger. whom everyone called Dummling. and from it he caused a huge mountain of bread to be baked. said he. and the man bent over the huge barrels. ³There is a wolf in the flock! Help!´ The villagers heard him. Then he gave him the ship which could sail on land and water. In great fright. At this Dummling was glad. with all his might. began to eat. and there sat the little grey man to whom he had given his cake. And the shepherd-boy lost all his sheep. Dummling inherited his kingdom and lived for a long time contentedly with his wife.He led him into the king's cellar. you shall have my daughter for wife. no one paid the least attention. there was no wolf there. and by the end of one day the whole mountain had vanished. and saying. Dummling went straight into the forest. He led him to the king's palace. or went near him. and ordered a ship which could sail on land and on water. ³Wolf! Wolf!´ he screamed. should take away his daughter. Then one day a wolf did break into the fold and began killing the lambs. . and making an awful face. Dummling did not think long. I will give you the ship. and he made a new condition. he could no longer prevent him from having his daughter. get up and come with me. he must first find a man who could eat a whole mountain of bread. but they thought it was another mean trick. and when the king saw that. Then Dummling asked once more for his bride. he said. the boy ran for help. but the king again sought a way out. ³The Boy who cried ³Wolf´ There was once a shepherd-boy who kept his flock at a little distance from the village. ³Wolf! Wolf! Come and help! The wolves are at my lambs!´ The kind villagers left their work and ran to the field to help him. So he ran toward the village crying out. and drank and drank till his loins hurt. Once he thought he would play a trick on the villagers and have some fun at their expense. but the king was vexed that such an ugly fellow. you shall eat yourself full. The wedding was celebrated. and after the king's death. and the villagers came running to help and got laughed at again. The man from the forest stood before it. I have eaten a whole ovenful of rolls. When he heard what Dummling wanted.

He had a giant bottle in his shop window so he carefully poured the cold mixture into that. Everyone in the houses had a good night's sleep. in fact he sounded much worse.I've such a lot to make!" So straight away he ran to his shop to fetch the giant spoon. "I use it to stir my cakes at Christmas time. "So far so good. "Soon we shall be sneezing instead of twinkling.. "Is it alright to take the whole bottle?" asked the Moon wheezing and sneezing." smiled the chemist looking very pleased with himself. (whose idea it was in the first place). "it says so on the label!" The cold medicine worked wonders.."That sounds like a very good idea to me.and the cats walked along the rooftops as usual and gazed up at the moon. "Perfectly alright.
