THE GIRL IN THE RICE FIELD



   A woman working in a rice field looked up from her work. "What is this coming?" she cried.   All the rest stood looking too.
   There came towards them a girlish figure dressed in a faded Kimono; but the stranger's name could not be seen, for a wooden bowl was placed on her head, upside down, hiding all but her chin.
    This curious being approached the oversee r and asked in a timid voice if she might have work?

  "What do you wear that thing for?" was his reply.
"It is because of a vow," she answered. "Pray sir, if you can, let me serve you. I am a good labourer, but in my village there are too toilers for the harvest. I have walked very far. Please honourable sir, give me work!"
" Very well then," said the overseer. "I will give you a trial."

    At first the new comer was not allowed to show her diligence. The others crowded round her, laughing and jeering. The young men tried to snatch off her bowl. The maiden clung to it and bore all their rudeness in silence. At last they grew tired, of teasing her and left her alone. Then she set to work, and never rested, nor grew careless.
    "You may come again." said the overseer at the end of the day.
