Also agreat jug of cider and another of milk, and several half-full glasses,and no end of dirty plates, knives, and forks. All were scattered aboutthe table in the most untidy fashion, just as the servants had risenfrom their supper, without thinking to put any thing away.

Brownie screwed up his little old face and turned up his button of anose, and gave a long whistle. You might not believe it, seeing he livedin a coal-cellar; but really he lik ed tidiness, and always played hispranks upon disorderly or slovenly folk. He wanted his supper, and oh! What a supper I'll get now! She had tried to gether nose into the milk-jug, but it was too small; and the junket-dishwas too deep for her to reach, except with one paw.
She didn't care muchfor bread and cheese and apple-pudding, and was very well fed besides;so, after just wandering round the table, she had jumped down from itagain, and settled herself to sleep on the hearth. But Brownie had no notion of going to sleep. He wanted his supper, andoh! And oh! As it was, he was obligedto slacken his belt several times, and at last took it off altogether. But he must have had a most extraordinary capacity for eating anddrinking--since, after he had nearly cleared the table, he was just aslively as if he had had no supper at all.
Now his jumping was a little awkward, for there happened to be a cleanwhite tablecloth: as this was only Monday, it had had no time to getdirty--untidy as the Cook was. And you know Brownie lived in acoal-cellar, and his feet were black with running about in coal dust. Sowherever he trod, he left the impression behind, until at last the wholetablecloth was covered with black marks.
Not that he minded this; in fact, he took great pains to make the clothas dirty as possible; and then laughing loudly, "Ho, ho, ho! Then, hearing a slight noise overhead, which might be the servantsgetting up, he jumped on to the table again--gobbled up the fewremaining crumbs for his breakfast, and scampered off to hiscoal-cellar; where he hid himself under his big coal, and fell asleepfor the day. Well, the Cook came downstairs rather earlier than usual, for sheremembered she had to clear off the remains of supper; but lo andbehold, there was nothing left to clear.
Every bit of food was eatenup--the cheese looked as if a dozen mice had been nibbling at it, andnibbled it down to the very rind; the milk and cider were all drunk--andmice don't care for milk and cider, you know.
As for the apple-pudding,it had vanished altogether; and the dish was licked as clean as ifBoxer, the yard-dog, had been at it in his hungriest mood. What can havebeen done to it? For it was all over littleblack footmarks, just the size of a baby's foot--only babies don't wearshoes with nails in them, and don't run about and climb on kitchentables after all the family have gone to bed.
The Little Lame Prince and The Adventures of a Brownie
Cook was a little frightened; but her fright changed to anger when shesaw the large black cat stretched comfortably on the hearth. Poor Muffhad crept there for a little snooze after Brownie went away. I see it all now; it's you that have eaten up all thesupper; it's you that have been on my clean table-cloth with your dirtypaws. She couldn't speak, you know--unfortunate cat!
Next night Cook thought she would make all safe and sure; so, instead ofletting the cat sleep by the fire, she shut her up in the chillycoal-cellar, locked the door, put the key in her pocket, and went off tobed--leaving the supper as before. When Brownie woke up and looked out of his hole, there was, as usual, nosupper for him, and the cellar was close shut.
