and looked in. She saw no bears nor anything to hurt her. So she went on into its depths and walked about where she pleased.

8. After a time she came to a snug little house under a great tree. She saw no one about, so she went up to the window and looked in. She must have looked in at the front window just as the bears walked out of the back door.

9. She saw no one, but she saw three bowls of soup on the dinner table. So she opened the front door and walked in.

10. She tasted the soup in the great, huge bowl and it was too hot. She tasted the soup in the middle-sized bowl and it was too cold. She tasted the

soup in the wee, little bowl and it was just right. She ate it all.

11. Then she sat down in the great, huge chair and it was too hard. Then she sat down in the middle-sized chair and it was too soft. Then she sat down in the wee, little chair and it was just right. So she sat in the wee, little chair till she broke the bottom out.

12. Then she went up stairs. She tried the great, huge bed and it was too hard. She tried the middle-sized bed and it was too soft. She tried the wee, little bed and it was just right. So she laid down in it and fell fast asleep.

PART THREE 13. After a time the three bears rose and went back to their Snug Home.

14. Think of their surprise when they came to the dinner table. Some one had left a spoon in each soup-bowl.

15. “Somebody has been tasting my soup,” said the Great Huge Bear in a great, huge voice. “Somebody has been tasting my soup,” said the Middle-sized Bear in a middle-sized voice. Somebody has been tasting my soup and has eaten it all up,” said the Wee Little Cub in a wee, little voice.

16. Their chairs had been moved from their places.

“Somebody has been sitting in my chair," said the Great Huge Bear in a great, huge voice.

“Somebody has been sitting in my chair," said the Middle-sized Bear in a middle-sized voice.

Somebody has been sitting in my chair and has sat the bottom out,” said the Wee Little Cub in a wee, little voice.

17. Then the three bears ran upstairs.

“Somebody has been lying in my bed,” said the Great Huge Bear in a great, huge voice.

“Somebody has been lying in my bed,” said the Middle-sized Bear in a middle-sized voice.

“Somebody has been lying in my bed, and here she is fast asleep,” said the Wee Little Cub in a wee, little voice.

18. Just then Golden Hair awoke. She saw the Three Bears bending over her. She sprang out of bed, jumped through the window and ran out of the wood as fast as she could go.

19. The Three Bears went down stairs laughing.

“Ho, ho,” laughed the Great Huge Bear in a great, huge voice.

“Ha, ha,” laughed the Middle-sized Bear in a middle-sized voice.

“Hee, hee,” laughed the Wee Little Cub in a wee, little voice.

20. They got more soup and ate their dinners. They wished for nothing but to enjoy their Snug Home in peace and quiet.
