THE JACKAL, DOVE, AND PANTHER 319
panther came up to him: 'Jackal, where are my little ones? ' she asked.
And the jackal answered: 'They are up there. It is where I keep school.'
The panther looked about, and then inquired, 'But where? I see nothing of them.'
' Come a little this way,' said the jackal, 'and you will hear how beautifully they sing.'
So the panther drew near the cleft of the rock.
' Don't you hear them?' said the jackal; 'they are in there,' and slipped away while the panther was listening to the song of the children.
