The Dog Finds the Master

Once upon a time the Dog lived all by himself in a forest. But he did not like it. He wanted to have a master, and he went to look for a master.

Soon he met the Hare.

Good afternoon, Hare,” said the Dog. “Let’s live together.”

All right,” said the Hare and they went together. When night came, they went to bed. But soon the Dog began to bark. The Hare jumped up and said:

Don’t bark. The Wolf may hear us and come here.”

The Hare is afraid of the Wolf,” thought the Dog. “The Wolf must be my master.”

In the morning the Dog went to look for the Wolf. He met the Wolf and said:

Let’s live together.”

All right,” said the Wolf.

When the night came, the Dog began to bark and the Wolf said:

Hey, don’t bark. The Bear may hear us.”

The Wolf is afraid of bears,” thought the Dog. “The Bear must be my master.” And he went to look for the Bear.

The Dog and the Bear went to live together. When night came, the Dog again began to bark. The Bear said:

Don’t bark! Man may hear us and come here.”

Man is for me,” thought the Dog and went to look for the man. Soon he met a man who took the Dog home.

When night came, the Dog began to bark. The man said nothing. The Dog barked again. Then the man said:

If you want to eat, go and eat. But don’t bark. I want to sleep.”

Man is afraid of nothing. He must be my muster,” thought the Dog and went to sleep too.

Now the Dog lives with the man. He knows that the man is his best friend.

Which Heart Is Better



Once there lived two brothers. They were very much alike, but they were quite different people. One was happy when other people were happy and sad when others were sad. The other brother never took care of other people.

You never help people, you only take care of yourself,” said the first brother. “Yes, I take care of myself,” said the second brother, “because I want to live a long and happy life.”

One day the two brothers parted. One brother lived long. His heart never troubled him. The other brother went to many places and everywhere he went people said: “He has left a bit of his heart with us.” Many years passed and two brothers met again. When the second brother saw his brother, he thought:”Is this young man my brother? How can it be? He is so young; his hair is not white as my hair is.”

It was true. The first brother looked young and his heart was stronger than before. Do you understand why it was so? Because the first brother shared the joys and sorrows of his fellow men and it made his heart stronger and stronger.

The Shirt

Many, many years ago there lived a king. He was very rich and he had everything he wanted. His country was strong and famous, but the king was not happy. So one day he went to a wise old man and asked him how to become happy. The wise man listened to him and then said, “There is very little happiness in this world, but I know the way to find it.” “Show me the way to find it, then,” said the king. “It’s very easy,” answered the old man. “You have only to put on the shirt of a happy man.” The king thanked the old man and began to look for a happy man. He visited most of the capitals of the world. He met kings, barons and other aristocrats, but they were not happy. At last he came back to his own country. One day he saw a poor farmer working in a field. He was singing and there was a happy look on his face. The king came up to the farmer and said, “My good man, are you happy?” “Very happy,” answered the farmer. “Well, then,” said the king, “sell me your shirt.” “My shirt?” said the farmer in surprise. “I haven’t got a shirt.

Miss Evans

On a beautiful afternoon in a year now long gone, a big ship set out on its first voyage from England to America. It was a new ship called the Titanic. For two days the Titanic went on its way over the sea. Then it entered an ice field and a big iceberg hit it.

Everyone came out of their rooms. Men were putting the life boats over the sides of the ship down into the water. Then all the men helped the women and children get into the life boats. There wasn’t very much time left. The iceberg was on one side of the ship. It was like a high white wall.

A woman came to the side of the ship. Her two children were in one of the life boats and she was very much afraid. “My children are on the life boat. I must go with them,” the woman called to the people in the life boat. “There’s no more room,” someone called out. “If we take one more the lifeboat will sink.” There was a young woman in the lifeboat called Miss Evans. When she heard the woman calling, she stood up on the life boat and touched one of the men on the arm. “Let me get back on the ship,” she said. “Let that woman take my place. I have no children.” “The ship is sinking,” said the man. “You know that?” “Yes,” said Miss Evans. “I know that.” There was no time to talk. People helped Miss Evans get back onto the ship. Very soon after that there was a great noise and the Titanic went down under the water.

Too Dear for the King

Many years ago an English King who knew very little about his people left London to travel in the country. He wanted to see how people in villages lived and what they did. During his trip he made stops in different places to spend the night or to get some food.

One day he came to a little village and stopped there to have breakfast. He asked for some coffee, bread and butter and some eggs.

A farmer prepared his breakfast and the King ate bread and butter and two eggs and drank a cup of coffee. Then he asked, “How much should I pay for my breakfast?” The price was very high and the King didn’t like it.

What?!” said the King. “So much for a little bread and butter, a cup of coffee and two eggs? Isn’t that too dear? There must be very few eggs in your village.”

Oh, no,” answered the man, “there are many eggs in our village, but these days there are few kings here.”

The Magic Wishing-Tree

The sun shone on the tree in the garden, the wind blew gently through its branches and the leaves whispered, “Wish-wish-wish.” It was a magic tree. And whoever stood beneath it and wished would have their wish come true.

In the house next to the tree there lived a fat old man. His name was William Smythe. He sold soap in the shop in the village, and he didn’t like boys and girls.

One day he stood underneath the tree and said, “I wish all the children who live near me were on the moon!” As soon as he said it, all the girls and boys were on the moon. It was very cold and lonely up there and some of the younger children began to cry.

A blackbird looked down at Mr. Smythe and said, “I wish all the children were back again!” Mr. Smythe said, “I wish they were all on the moon.” And the blackbird said, “I wish they were all back again.” The children didn’t know where they were.

Mr. Smythe stamped his foot and said, “I wish…”, but he didn’t get any further, because the blackbird said very quickly, “I wish Mr. Smythe was good.”

And Mr. Smythe, who had just been going to say, “I wish all the children were on the moon,” suddenly changed his mind and said, “I wish all the children would come to tea this afternoon, and we’ll have cakes and lemonade for tea. And I’ll stop selling soap and open a sweet shop instead. Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!”

The sailor and the monkeys

A ship stopped at the coast of South Africa. One of the sailors left the ship and went to a town near the coast. He had some blue caps made of wool in a bag and wanted to sell them in the town. The sun was hot and the sailor decided to have a rest in the forest. He sat down under a big tree, took one of the caps out of his bag and put it on his head. He slept for some time.

When the man woke up, he took his cap off and wanted to put it into his bag with the other caps. But he saw that there were no caps in it now. Where were they?

Where are my caps?” he cried.

Then the sailor heard a great noise in the trees above his head. He looked up and saw monkeys, and each monkey had a blue cap on its head!

Give me back my caps, you monkeys!” he cried. But the monkeys didn’t listen to him. They only jumped from tree to tree and made a great noise.

Give me back my caps!” he cried again and again. But nothing helped. The monkeys only looked at him.

Then the sailor was very angry. He took off the blue cap, threw it on the ground and cried, “You have taken all my caps! You can have this cap too!”

The monkeys saw him do that. Then each monkey took off the cap and threw it on the ground. The sailor picked up his caps, put them into his bag and went to town.

The Woodman and Mercury

A woodman was cutting down a tree on the bank of a deep river. By chance his axe slipped from his hand, dropped into the water and sank to the bottom.

Oh! I have lost my axe,” he cried. “What shall I do? The river is very deep and I am afraid to dive into it. What shall I do? Who can help me?”

Mercury, whose river it was, heard the poor man’s cries and appeared before him. “What is the matter, poor woodman?” he asked. “What has happened that you are so sad and unhappy?”

Mercury listened to the man’s story and then said, “I’ll try to help you.” At that he dived into the river and brought up a golden axe. “Is this your axe,” he asked. “No, that is not mine,” was the answer. Mercury dived a second time and this time he brought up a silver axe. “Is this yours?” he asked. Again the answer was ”no”. So Mercury dived a third time and this time he brought up the very axe that the woodman had lost. “That is my axe”, cried the man joyfully and held out his hand for it. “Yes, this is my own good axe. Now I can work again.”

Mercury was so pleased with the fellow’s truthfulness and honesty that he at once made him a present of the other two axes and disappeared before the fellow could even say “thank you”.

The woodman cut down his tree and then went home very pleased with his good fortune. He told his friends all about it and one of them decided to try whether he could not have the same good fortune. Going to the same place, as if to cut down a tree, he dropped his axe into the river and pretended to be very sad and unhappy because of his loss.

Mercury appeared as before, and when he was told that the cause of the fellow’s unhappiness was the loss of his axe, he dived into the river. Again he brought up a golden axe. “Is this your axe?” he asked.

Yes, yes, it is,” said the second woodman. “You are not telling the truth,” said Mercury. “You will neither have this axe nor the one that you so foolishly dropped into the water.”

The Lazy Ass

Once a tradesman had an ass that was a very strong animal but very lazy. The tradesman was a kind man and fed the ass well, but the animal was always displeased and grumbled that he had to carry heavy sacks.

The tradesman travelled from town to town with all kinds of goods and came home only late in the evening. When the ass was in the stable at night with the other animals, he always grumbled that he was very tired, and that his master made him carry very heavy loads. And the other animals shook their heads in sympathy, and they believed the ass.

One day the tradesman bought two sacks of salt which he wanted to sell in another town. So he loaded the sacks on the ass’s back and they started off.

On their way they came to a bridge across a river. Right in the middle of the bridge the ass slipped and fell into the river. The master ran around to the bank and went into the water to help the animal back to dry ground.

Now the ass noticed that his load was much lighter as the water had washed away part of the salt. “Ah, that’s good!” thought the lazy animal. “Why did not I think of that before?”

As the salt was no good at all now the tradesman returned to town and brought some other goods with which he loaded the ass. Then they started again and when they came to the bridge the second time the ass jumped into the water. As the sacks did not contain salt this time but cloth instead, they became very heavy. The master helped the silly ass back to the road. Now the load was twice heavy because it was wet. But as nobody wanted to buy the wet cloth, the tradesman could not sell it that day and the ass had to carry the heavy sacks home again on his back.

Jim and Della

Jim and Della were two young people, husband and wife. They loved each other dearly. They lived in a small room in an old house in one of the dirty streets of New York. They worked from early morning till late at night, but they got very little money for their work. And still they had two things which were very dear to them – Jim’s watch and Della’s beautiful hair.

Christmas was coming and Della wanted to give Jim a nice present, but she had no money. She really didn’t know what to do. She sat on the sofa and began to cry. Suddenly an idea came to her. She got up and stood in front of the mirror and looked at her beautiful long hair. Then she left the house and in a few minutes she was already at hairdresser’s shop.

Will you buy my hair?” she asked. The hairdresser looked at her hair and said, “Yes, I will. It’s fine hair. I can give you twenty dollars for it.” Della was very happy. She took the money and went to buy a present for her husband. In one of the shops she saw a very beautiful watch-chain. “I’ll buy it, Jim will be very glad,” she said to herself. “He needs a chain for his watch.”

So Della bought a gold watch-chain as a Christmas present for Jim. When she got home, Jim was already there waiting for her. He looked at his smiling little wife and understood everything.

Why did you do it?” he asked.

Dear Jim, my hair will grow and I wanted to give you a present. Here it is,” and she put the watch-chain into his hand.

The beautiful chain, Della’s present, was of no use to him. He had sold his gold watch to buy a Christmas present for his wife. He took a packet out of his pocket and gave it to Della. She opened it and saw two beautiful combs, the combs that she had seen in a shop window and had wanted for so long.

How Three Brothers Shared a ‘Trembita’

Once, an old man lived in the Carpathian Mountains. He made musical instruments to play melodies. He made them from birch tree.

One day three young men came and asked him to make them a horn from birch tree. “But why only one – you are three,” said the old man.

We are too poor to have three. We shall share the one,” they answered. The old man smiled and said, “Come back in spring. You will have a fine horn.” And he worked the whole winter. But when spring came and he wanted to write on the horn the names of the three brothers, he remembered that he did not know the names of the three young men. So he asked the old clever man of the village who said, “Write on it ‘Trem bratam’” (which is the Ukrainian for ‘for three brothers’).

So when the mountains and fields became green and the shepherds took their sheep out to eat grass, the three brothers got their instrument from the old man and played it. They liked the music that it played. They had never heard such fine music before.

The three brothers went home playing the horn, and everyone who heard it liked it very much. For a long time after it people came from near and far to look at the horn and to listen to its music. Those who could read told others what was written on the horn. And so in that part of our country the shepherd’s horn is known as the trembita.

How Singing Began


We know that people learned to write long, long ago. For more than 7,000 years people have been writing down their thoughts. But even before people learned to write they could sing! Music began even before writing.

The people of old times drew themselves on rocks. Some of the pictures that preserved show dancers and singers, and also people playing some musical instruments. So our earliest ancestors were fond of music.

How did people learn to sing? What musical instruments did they play? Archaeologists and musicologists give the answer to these questions.

Our ancestors lived in groups because only together they could get their food and defend themselves from wild animals. They learned to make tools and work together.

The group of early men worked together like an orchestra and they usually murmured to each movement of their hand or foot. Without the murmuring (or “singing”) they could not do the work.

Later people learned to make other and better tools and it was not necessary to sing during their work. But singing began, and there are songs in many countries which are probably children of these first work songs.

When man made his earliest tools, he learned to make musical instruments, too. Those pictures on rocks show people playing musical instruments. A very careful analysis of the bones of animals that archaeologists found in a number of ice-age camps show that the men of that time could use them for making sounds. So bones of animals, horns, pieces of wood were man’s first musical instruments. By blowing into horns or bones people could make a very loud sound. They could also make sounds by beating one piece of wood against another or a piece of wood against a stone. People of that time could also use strings and fur to make musical instruments. That was the time when people did not have metal. And yet they could sing and were fond of music.

A Tragedy

The plane had taken off from the air-field in London, and the journey to South Africa, to Johannesburg had started. It was just after the war, and it was not a jet, as it is nowadays, but it was a big plane with four engines, and four propellers, of course.

When a few minutes later we were crossing the Channel, one of the engines went wrong, but the stewardess said there were three engines left and the passengers were quite safe.

When the plane reached the Mediterranean Sea, the second engine broke, but the stewardess told us there was nothing to worry about because two engines were quite enough to keep us in the air.

As we got near to the shores of Africa, somebody said that only one propeller was working. The stewardess kept her mouth shut this time.

Presently we were flying over the jungle in Central Africa and fellow travelers were terribly upset. Women were holding their children tighter and tighter and men were drinking more and more heavily…I was terribly nervous, and as I looked down, I could not help thinking of death.

At that moment the loud-speaker was switched on, and the captain’s voice was heard, “Ladies and gentlemen, I have tragic news for you.”

The faces of the passengers turned pale. Some burst into tears. My heart sank into my boots…

The captain continued in a gloomy voice, It is my sad duty to inform you that England has lost her last football match against Scotland.”

Tell Freedom

Mr. Visser, the principal of the Vrededorp School for coloured children, said that they could not take in new pupils in the middle of the year.

Education is compulsory for whites only,” he continued, “nobody is interested if a coloured boy goes to school or not. Yet we’ll try to do something for you.”

He called one of the coloured teachers of the school. She was not very happy to see me.

I have too many children in my form,” she explained, “this boy’s big and old enough to be in the next form…Why didn’t you come at the beginning of the year?”

I worked, miss.”

The principal said to the teacher:

I know that your class is very big,” he said. “You don’t have slates or pencils for all of them. Some are so big that they are ready to have their own families. I know all that. But think of this boy. At work he hears a story and the story makes him come here. He says, ‘Please, I want to learn.’ Must we turn him away, because he hasn’t come at the beginning of the year? ... Boy! Peter!”

Sir?”

Are you afraid of hard work?”

No, sir.”

All right. We’ll make you work. I promise you’ll read and write by the end of this year. If you don’t work, the teacher will send you to me and I’ll beat you. All right?”

Yes, sir.”

The teacher took me to the classroom at once. The children looked at me with interest.

This is our new boy, Peter Abrahams. Make room for him, Adams.”

Please, miss…”

A Dangerous Place

Paula had always wanted to go to New York and now she had the chance at last. She was a journalist, and her newspaper was sending her there to do a series of articles on the city. But before she left her home in London, several friends warned her to be careful and not to go out alone at night in New York. “It’s a dangerous place. People get robbed or even killed on broad daylight!” they told her.

But when she got there, the only thing she was afraid of was exhaustion. It was such an exciting city that she never got any sleep. It took her two weeks to do the articles and she had to interview a lot of people but she enjoyed every minute of it. She completely forgot all her friends’ warnings until the day she went back to London. It all began in a bar.

She was having lunch there when she suddenly felt someone watching her. She looked up and noticed a man sitting at a table opposite her. He was staring at her, but looked away. She noticed that he had a scar on his cheek. He was about 30 and had short, curly hair. Paula was not worried at all. She had to go to an airline office to rebook her flight home. She wanted an afternoon flight instead of a morning one, as originally planned. On her way there, she stopped to look at something in a shop-window. To her surprise she saw the man follow her. She could see his reflection in the glass. He had stopped just behind her. Suddenly she felt afraid. She walked on. Then she stopped and looked behind her again. But this time she could not see him.

Just then she noticed she had come to the airline office. She went in and after she had finished her business, decided to phone a friend from a telephone booth there. She was carrying a small, portable but very expensive tape-recorder. It was in a black case in which she kept her money and passport as well. But the booth was so small that she had to leave the case outside. When she came out, it had disappeared. Then she saw the red-haired man hurrying out of the office. He had the case in his hand. She shouted but it was too late.

In the Lift

Once, I came home from school and got in the lift and about half way up it suddenly stopped. There was no one in with me. I was terrified. It just stopped with me inside. I felt so stupid. I felt as if I was hanging miles up in the air in a box tied by strings. I didn’t know what to do. I looked at the buttons.

I began by pressing all the numbers. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. No good. Then I looked at the other buttons. One said, “STOP”. I didn’t bother to press that one. Another said, DOORS OPEN”. I didn’t dare to press that. Imagine the door opening and me stepping out and falling down four floors.

I shouted out, “Help!”

No one answered. I shouted again.

Help! Help! Get me out. I’m stuck in the lift.”

There was a switch at the bottom of the buttons. So I pressed it down. Nothing happened.

Then the light went out.

I started to cry and scream at the same time. I screamed and screamed. In the end I couldn’t scream any more. But I could keep on crying and I did. I don’t think I’ve ever cried as much in my life.

I sat down on the floor and pressed myself against the back wall. I don’t know, it felt safer, as far away from the door as possible. I kept thinking, “They’re going to open soon and I’ll fall out.”

If only I could get a light. Then I could, perhaps, try to escape. If I could see. Maybe that switch, I thought, was really the light-switch even though the light hadn’t gone off when I’d pressed it.

I slid myself round and stretched up my arm to feel for the buttons. I got my fingers on the switch and pressed it back up. Nothing happened. I screamed out, “Help! Please! Help! Get me out! Mum! Mum! Mum!” And I banged my hand against all the buttons; I banged and pressed them all.

Then I heard a bell ringing. It was just like the electric bell we had at our school. But it didn’t stop. It just kept on ringing and ringing.

It’s an alarm bell,” I thought. “The building must be on fire.”

Please, God,” I said, “Please get me out. I’ll do anything. I’ll be better. I really will. Please get me out.”

It was hot. It was getting really hot in the lift. I was sweating. I knew that I would soon be able to smell the smoke.

And then – the lift moved.

I screamed as loud as I could, though I knew no one would hear me. The lift was moving. The fire must have burnt through the cables. I was scared stiff but then I realized that the lift was moving very slowly as if someone was carefully lowering it down.

Very gently, down we went – me and the lift, together in the dark.

It stopped. I pressed myself against the steel wall. And the door opened. There was a man standing there. I couldn’t see his face against the light. He stepped towards me.

Right, love,” he said. “Let’s have you out.”
