Once there was a miller who was poor, but who had a beautiful daughter. Now it happened that he had to go and speak to the King, and in order to make himself appear important he bragged that her daughter can spin straw into gold.

And when the girl was brought to him he took her into a room which was quite full of straw, gave her a spinning-wheel and a reel, and ordered her to spin it to gold or she will be put to death. Thereupon he himself locked up the room, and left her in it alone. So there sat the poor miller's daughter, and for her life could not tell what to do; she had no idea how straw could be spun into gold, and she grew more and more miserable, until at last she began to weep.

But all at once the door opened, and in came a little man, and asked her what the cause of her distress was. She told him and the little man asked what she could give in return if he did what she was ordered to do. She offered the necklace.The little man took the necklace and spun the straw into gold until by tomorrow the reels were full of gold. By daybreak the King was already there, and when he saw the gold he was astonished and delighted, but his heart became only more greedy. He had the miller's daughter taken into another room full of straw, which was much larger, and commanded her to spin that also in one night if she valued her life. The girl knew not how to help herself, and was crying, when the door again opened, and the little man appeared, and she offered her ring for his assistance. The little man took the ring, again began to turn the wheel, and by morning had spun all the straw into glittering gold.
