     The Lion's Share


The Lion went once a-hunting along with the Fox, the Jackal, and the Wolf.

They hunted and they hunted till at last they saw a Stag, and soon took its life.

 Then came the question how the spoil should be divided.

 "Give me quarter of this Stag," roared the Lion; so the other animals skinned it and cut it into four parts.

Then the Lion took his stand in front of the audience and pronounced judgment: The first quarter is for me in my capacity as King of Beasts; the second is mine as judge; another share comes to me for my part in the chase; and as for the fourth quarter, well, as for that, I should like to see which of you will dare to lay a paw upon it."

"Humph," grumbled the Fox as he walked away with his tail between his legs; but he spoke in a low growl.

"You may share the labours of the great, but you will not share the spoil."
