Text

Some days after, when all the food was finished, and they had begun to get hungry again, the badger said to the fox; "Now 'tis your turn to die." So the fox pretented to be dead, and the badger changed himself into a hunter, shouldered the fox, and went off to the town, where he made a good bargain, and sold her for a nice little sum of money. You have seen already that the badger was greedy and selfish. What do you think he did now!
