mit Fraw Warheit,' and that the story appears in a Danish translation of Pauli's ' Schimpf und Ernst.' In that curious and interesting book is the earliest example of the story which I have so far found :

" Es kameu einmal vier Jungfrauen zusammen und scherzten mit einander und waren guter Dinge. Die eine sprach zu den anderen dreien : Ach, nun 1st uns doch wohl bei einander ! Aber wenn wir einander gern wiederum hatten, wo finden wir einander? Und die eine hiess Ignis (Feuer), die andere Aqua (Wasser), die dritte Ae'r (Luft), und die vierte Veritas (Wahrheit). Ach sprach die eine, Feuer, wo findeu wir dich ? Sie sprach : In einem harten Stein ; da schlaget mit einem Stahl daran, so findet Ihr mich ! Da sprach sie : Luft, wo finden wir dich ? Wo bist du daheim ? Sie sprach : Ihr miisset lugen, wo ein Blattlein an einem Bautn zittert uud sich bewegt, da findet Ihr mich, da bin ich daheim ! Da sprach sie : Wasser, wo finden wir dich, wo bist du daheim? Sie sprach: Wo Ihr Binsen findet da grabet zu den Wurzeln ; da findet Ihr mich, da bin ich daheim ! Da sprach sie : edle Wahrheit, wo finden wir dich ? Die Wahrheit antwortete ihnen alien dreien : ihr lieben Sch wes- tern, ihr habt alle cure Orte genannt, da man euch weiss zu finden ; aber ich habe leider kein eigen Haus ; Niemand will mich beherbergen ; ich bin von Jedermann gehasst !"' Schimpf und Ernst,' yon Bruder Johannes Pauli. Ausgewahlt und sprachlich erneuert von H. A. Junghaus, Leipzig o. J. S. 9.

Thepreface to Brother Johannes Pauli's book is dated 1519. The manner in which the names are given suggests that the good Franciscan had before him a Latin version of the story. Some reader of *N. & Q.' may perhaps be able to point out the source which I have failed to identify. WILLIAM E. A. AXON.
