As they approached the stream they saw something which looked like an enormous grasshopper springing toward the water as if it were going to jump in. They ran forward and recognized their old friend the dwarf. He clung on with all his might to every rush and blade of grass, but it didn't help him much; he had to follow every movement of the fish, and was in great danger of being drawn into the water.
The girls came up just at the right moment, held him firm, and did all they could to disentangle his beard from the line; but in vain, beard and line were in a hopeless muddle.

You have torn my thin little coat all to shreds, useless, awkward hussies that you are! The girls were accustomed to his ingratitude, and went on their way and did their business in town. On their way home, as they were again passing the heath, they surprised the dwarf pouring out his precious stones on an open space, for he had thought no one would pass by at so late an hour.
The evening sun shone on the glittering stones, and they glanced and gleamed so beautifully that the children stood still and gazed on them. He was about to go off with these angry words when a sudden growl was heard, and a black bear trotted out of the wood.
