THE BULL AND THE GOAT.
A BULL, escaping from a Lion, entered a cave,
which some shepherds had lately occupied. A He-
goat was left in it, who sharply attacked him with
his horns. The Bull quietly addressed him--"Butt
away as much as you will. I have no fear of you,
but of the Lion. Let that monster once go, and I
will soon let you know what is the respective strength
of a Goat and a Bull."
It shows an evil disposition to take advantage of a
friend in distress.
