So Hilly Woodcliuck and Jimmy
Kalihit could never agree upon this
qut'etinn of the best jumper in I'leas
ant X'allcy. And there was only one
way to settle their difference of opin
ion. Old Mf. Crow told them that.
"You must have a contest." he
And everybody was willing:. The
Muley Cow said (when asked) that
she w&uld be dtlighted. And when
Nimhle Deer heard of the plan he
ran all the way to the back pasture
at once. For that was where Mr.
Crow said the conttst ought to take
Nimble reached the back pasture
just in time to see the Muley Cow
arrive there. She leaped the fence.
And at the same time she grazed
the top rail and all but landed in a
"Good morning', madam!" Nimble
said to the .Muley Cow. And while
she was answering him Nimble
jumped the fence into the pasture
from which the Muley Cow had
come; and then he jumped back
again into the back pasture. And
he didn't touch the fence by so much
as a single hair.
Then Billy Woodcliuck crawled
under the fence and came waddling
up in great haste.
"What are you doing?" he asked
"I'm just stretching my legs a
bit," Nimble explained.
At that answer Billy Woodcliuck
set up a loud clamor. f
' "It's not fair!" he howled." "I ex;
pected the Muley Cow to win the
contest.;- - But if you're going to
stretch your legs she'll certainly be
beaini utile. khe ttriUhc hert too."
Now, did Mr, Cruw ph IuiiJ
lo see die fu.i. And not being very
friendly with the Muley Cow. he
didn't want her to wm the contitt.
o he began to squall.
".She mustn't ttietih her legi any
iimre than Nimble ttretchet In." ht
objected in hit hoarte croak. "Nim
ble jumped the fence twice to stretch
hit legs. She lit jumped once al
ready. I.rt hr jump the fenre once
more and then they'll be even and
the real contest can begin."
"Ihat'a fair enough," taid Jimmy
Hut Billy Wrtodchtitk began to
clutter and scold.
"It't a tric4- trick of Mr.
Crow'.!" he cried. "If ihe Muley
Cow umn once more to ttrctch her
le Kt the'll be on the wrong tide of
the fence. Mie won't be in the back
pa.nire then. And how could the
have the contett with Nimble Deer?",
Old Mr. Crow gave loud haw
haw. Hut he Mill intitted that the
Mulry Cow miuht line only one
more Irg-strelching jump, when
Jimmy Rabbit hurried ip to him and
said tomrihitiR nobody ette could
hear. And Mr. Crow listened and
then nodded hi hrad.
"It't all riant," the old gentleman
told Hilly Wooilchuck. "Let the
Muley Cow stretch her legs all the
liken. We don't care."
