a little larger. . After all, th manikin

Hans now turned his steps homeward.
When he reached the bouse he -carefully

at his sudden growth, asked him what

observing thla, almply gave him mor
shots to mend. Then, too, now that he
had grown larger, bis appetite had
grown also, and, as his family war
poor, be eouldn't gat nearly enough to
eat to satisfy him. . . - .
Without sufficient ' food Hans soon
found himself growing as tlrad as

He drank, and at one h became

because he hadn't enougn to eat.

much too larg t for his clothes. Al
though, relatives and friends gav all
