Abstract
Lively cartoons present "The Widow and the Servant-Girls"; "The Father and Two Daughters"; "The Worker and His Sons"; "The Woman and the Hen"; "The Fox and the Shepherd-Girl"; and "The Star-Gazer." "The Fox and the Shepherd-Girl" is a version of the fable in which the fox asks for help from a woodsman and gets it, but the woodsman gestures to his questioners showing where the fox is, even though his words say that he has not seen the fox. The trackers do not get the hint, but the fox understands what has happened and renders no thanks, in this case to the pretty young shepherd girl who betrayed him. My prizes in this 16-page pamphlet about 7" x 8" go to two pretty young women among the many pretty young women in this number. There is even one in the astronomer story! My two prizes are the "pastora" who tries to give a hint to the trackers, even though they are too slow to perceive it, and to the woman feeding the hen twice as much in hopes that the hen will produce twice as much. Usually she is an older woman; here she is young and pretty – and not so smart.
