**Once upon a time, there lived a king. Behind
his palace, there was a beautiful garden in
which there was a tree that bore golden
apples. One day, the gardener came to the
royal court and said, 'My lord! Every night
before going to bed I count the apples. But
the next morning, I find an apple missing.' The
king was alarmed. He asked his three sons to
look into the matter. First, he sent the eldest
prince to guard the tree throughout the night.
But as the night progressed, the eldest prince
fell asleep. And next morning again an apple
was gone. The following night the second
prince had to guard the tree, but he too fell
asleep before midnight. And the next
morning, an apple was stolen. Now it was the
turn of the youngest prince to guard the tree.
He sat under the tree, keeping awake. As soon
as the clock struck twelve, the youngest
prince heard a hustle through the air. As he
looked up, he saw a bird alighting on the tree.
Its feathers were all made of gold.
The prince was alert. Just as the bird plucked
off an apple, the prince shot an arrow at it.
The bird flew off, but the arrow had struck its
wings and one of its golden feathers fell
down. The prince picked it up and took it to
the king. The king was pleased at the
youngest prince as he had identified the thief.
But now the olden feather was the talk of the
town. This feather is worth more than the
whole kingdorn:. said the minister. 'Ira single
feather is so precious. I must have the whole
bird!' said the Icing. And my youngest son will
go in search of it.' So, the young-eat prince
readily set out. After some distance, he saw a
fox sitting at the edge of a rock. Are you on
the way to catch the golden bird, 0 prince?'
asked the fox. Yes!' replied the prince. Then
take my advice, if you want to, said the fox.
This evening, you will come to a village in
which there are two inns opposite each other.
One of them is big and bright and the other
has only one small and damp room. Go to the
small one, stay here, but don't sleep. The youngest prince thanked the fox for the
advice and continued on his way. By the
evening, he came to a village where there
were two inns. The small one had indeed a
miserable look. But the prince followed the
fox's advice and stayed there. He waited.
When it was midnight, he heard a rustle
through the air. Suddenly, he saw the golden
bird alighting on the window of his room.
Without wasting time, the prince plunged at
the bird and it was in his firm grip. At dawn,
the prince started back for the palace. On the
way, he again met the fox sitting on the rock.
'Won't you reward me for my advice, 0
prince?' asked the fox. 'Of course, I will' said
the prince. 'Ask what you wish!' Then pluck a
feather of the golden bird and keep it on my
head, said the fox. As soon as the prince- kept
a golden feather on the fox's head, there
arose a dark cloud of smoke. When the smoke
settled. the fox had disappeared and there
stood a beautiful maiden. smiling at the
prince. The prince was surprised. A sorceress
had changed me me into a fox because I had
come to know her secret. Only the touch of
the golden feather could have brought me
back to my human form.' The prince fell in
love with the maiden and took her to his
palace. The king was overjoyed to get the
golden bird. He also gave his consent for the
prince's marriage with the maiden. In a grand
ceremony, the youngest married to the
beautiful maiden. And together, they lived
happily ever after.**
