Once there was a king of Scotland whose name was Bruce. He needed to be both brave and wise because the times in which he lived were wild and bad. The king of England was at war with him and had led a great army into Scotland to drive him out of the land. Battle after battle had been fought. Six times Bruce had led his brave little army against his enemies and six times his men had been beaten and driven into flight. At last his army was scattered, and he was forced to hide himself in the woods and in lonely places among the mountains. One rainy day, Bruce lay on the ground under a shed listening to the pitter patter of the drops on the roof above him. He was tired and weak at heart and ready to give up all hope. It seemed to him that there was no use for him to try to do anything more. As he lay thinking, he saw a spider over his head getting ready to weave her web. He watched her as she moved slowly and with great care. Six times she tried to throw her frail thread from one beam to another, and six times it fell short. Poor thing, said Bruce, you, too, know what it is to fail. But the spider did not lose hope even with the sixth failure. With still more care, she was ready to try for the seventh time. Bruce almost forgot his own troubles as he watched her swing herself out upon the thin line. Would she fail again? No! The thread was carried safely to the beam and fastened there. I, too, will try a seventh time! Bruce decided. He arose and called his men together. He told them of his plans and sent them out with messages of cheer to his disheartened people. Soon there was an army of brave Scotchmen around him. Another battle was fought, and the king of England was glad to go back into his own country. The lesson which the little creature had taught the king was very valuable.
