here again !" he cried.
His wife ran out. the
flowers were trampled , the fruit trees torn. They
looked at the havoc almost pitifully, for this was
Japan, and the land of loving gardeners and
stood there gazing at the destruction of the broken
flowers a peasant man came walking

and some wild beast has trampled through the
rice-fields. It has happened for three nights
running now. We must do something soon or we shall
"What is that ?" cried the
gardeners wife, catching sight of a little blue
Kimona among the bushes. There lay her son on the
ground fast asleep. They woke him with a scolding
for spending the night lying in the
" Oh but father ! " he cried. I
watched for the beast, and I saw him ! He is a big
black horse. He came stamping in, nibbling a bit
here and a bit there, but by then I was so sleepy
