                  corne back is that they have dropped a big cheese in thé river. I
                  wonder could you take it up. You are bigger than me." He said,
                  "Well, we are waiting for meat, what should we do?" "Let us take
                  the cheese out first, then we can corne back and get our meat." "Ail
                  right, let's go." When they got to the river, Fox said to Coyote old
                  man, "Did I not tell you the truth? There is a big cheese down there.
                  Can you see it?" Coyote old man said, "Cheese! that is a big one,
                  how are we going to get it now?" Fox said, "You can think better
                  than me. What do you think we ought to do?" Coyote old man,
                  as he was always wanting to be thé first to eat, said, "I am going to
                  jump in and get it and you pull me out." So Fox said, "Ail right, but
                  let me tie a wire around your neck so I can pull you out if you can not
                  get out. The cheese seems to be pretty big." So he tied thé wire
                  around his neck. He said, "I am going to tie a stone around the other
                  end, so the stone will help me pull you up." Coyote old man jumped
                  into the river and then Fox threw the other end of the wire with the
                  stone on it into the river, too. So Coyote old man stayed in the river
                  forever with his cheese (which was the moon shining in the river).

                  There was a boy living with his mother and brothers. They all
                  went out to look for work and the boy found an empty house and he
                  went to sleep there that night. From the top of the house he heard,
                  "I am going to fall." "Well, fall!" An arm came down. "I am
                  going to fall!" Another arm came down. Soon there stood there
                  a whole skeleton. "You are a brave boy, won't you wrestle with
                  me?" "Wrestle with a bony man like you!" They wrestled
                  together and the boy beat and threw down the skeleton. "You
                  are a brave boy and I am going to let you have all the riches I have
                  here." So the skeleton gave the boy a candle to light so he could go
                  into a little room where the skeleton kept his gold and silver. Then
                  the skeleton jumped on the boy's back and said, "You got to carry
                  me." "All right, I will carry you." When they got to the room,
                  Skeleton blew out thé candle. The boy said, "I want to see what
                  your riches are," and he lit the candle again. Just. as he was about
                  to see the money, the dead man blew out the light. Finally the boy
                  got mad and threw down the skeleton and said, "If you are going to
                  blow out the light, 1 will break your bones." "No, my friend, leave
                  me alone, for I tbink you are a brave boy." When he lit the candle,
                  he saw the money. The dead person said, "I am going to ask one
                  Mexican or Indian story? 1 asked. Indian story/* and the narrator added that it was told to
                  lazy children. A ehild might say, "I do not want to depend on any one. 1 rather work. They might
                  throw me in the river like Coyote old man."
