Humans

Some fables tell tales of humans, which can be found here.

The Dog Invited to Supper

A Gentleman, having prepared a great feast, invited a Friend to supper; and the Gentleman's Dog, meeting the Friend's Dog, "Come," said he, "my good fellow, and sup with us to-night."

The Dog was delighted with the invitation, and as he stood by and saw the preparations for the feast, said to himself: "Capital fare indeed! this is, in truth, good luck. I shall revel in dainties, and I will take good care to lay in an ample stock to-night, for I may have nothing to eat tomorrow."

The Trees and the Axe

A Man came into a forest, and made a petition to the Trees to provide him a handle for his axe.

The Trees consented to his request, and gave him a young ash-tree.

The Bald Man and the Fly

 There was once a Bald Man who sat down after work on a hot summer's day.

A Fly came up and kept buzzing about his bald pate, and stinging him from time to time.

The Eagle and the Arrow

An Eagle was soaring through the air when suddenly it heard the whizz of an Arrow, and felt itself wounded to death.

Slowly it fluttered down to the earth, with its life-blood pouring out of it.
