The Golden Swan
One night, as the poor widow was sleeping restlessly, she heard  her husband’s voice. “I have come back to help you, “ the voice said. The widow sat up and looked around. She knew she was dreaming, and in her dream she went  outside. A large swan spoke to her with  the Chief Hunter’s voice. “ I know how hard it is for you , “ the Swan said  in the Chief Hunter ‘s voice. The Widow was happy to hear  her husband’s voice, yet sad  because she knew that it was a dream.
The words stuck her throat so she could not speak. The Swan stood in the moonlight  and said, “ I wish I could be here with you.” Then it came  closer. She could see  that many of its feathers were made of gold. In the moonlight it seemed  to be a golden swan.  The golden swan said, “ Put  your hand out and take one of my  golden feathers. Use the money for yourself and the children. Go on, I will return whenever  You need  more. Pull a feather out of my wing. The Golden Swan said in the voice of the chief hunter, “Go to sleep now. In the morning  you will know this  was a special dream.” So the widow put the feather beside her bed  and went back to sleep. She slept so well and so deeply  it was as  if her husband were still alive. When she woke up, she remembered the dream and looked for the golden feather. There in its place was money and gold. The woman  was very happy and later she went to the village and bought food and clothing. She was careful not to spend too much.

The Fish  that Learned to  Walk
Once there  was an Indian  who had a pet fish  named Tommy, which he kept in a barrel. But  the fish  got pretty big and the Indian  had to change the water  a good deal to keep  him alive.  He was too lazy to do that, and  he thought he would teach  the fish  to live without water. So he did.  He began  by taking Tommy out of the barrel for a few minutes at a time, pretty often, and then he took him out  oftener and  kept him out longer, and after a time  Tommy got  so he could  stay out a good while if he was  in the wet grass.
Then the Indian  found he could leave him  in the wet grass all night, and pretty soon that fish could live in the shade whether  the grass was wet or not.  By that time  he had got pretty tame, too, and  he used to  follow  the Indian around  a good deal, and  when a the Indian  went out  to dig worms for him to eat. Tommy went along  too and  got some for himself. The Indian thought  everything of that fish, and  when Tommy  got so  he didn’t  need  any water at all, but could  go  anywhere—down the  dusty road  and  stay  all day out in the hot  sun—you never saw the Indian without his fish.  Some people wanted to buy  Tommy, but the Indian said he wouldn’t sell  a fish like  that for any  money.  You’d see  him coming to town  with Tommy  following along  the road  behind, just like  a dog, only  of course he traveled  a good deal like a snake, and almost as fast.
Well, it was pretty sad that the way that Indian lost his fish, and it  was unusual too. He started  for town one day  with Tommy  coming along  behind as usual. There was a bridge   in the road  and the Indian  came  to it where he saw  there  was a hole in it, but he went on over it  without  thinking. A little later  he looked  round  for Tommy  and  Tommy wasn’t  there.  He went back  a way and called, but he couldn’t see  anything  of his pet. Then he came  to the bridge  and saw the hole, and he thought right away that maybe  his fish  had got in there. So, he went  to the hole and looked down, and sure enough, there was Tommy, floating on the water, bottom-side up. He’d fallen through  that hole into the river and drowned.
