Oneo cn a time in Imlustan,

(So potent i.i tho voice of hopo,)
To save his throtlle-frotu the rope,
Though now the day was drawing nigh

Jich?dc the jailer tell the King

A precious secret, fairly worth]

Anil now the ciilprit, being led
.Into, the royal presence, said,

? If planted, will become n tree,
"Whose-fruits? increased a hundred fold
WoWld be like this, the purest gold.
I pray your majesty to try*
""If this be true, before I die."
With this the king and courtiers went
Into the garden with intent.
To plant the curious coin of gold,
Hut, now, when all was ready "hold"
Exclaimed the thief, "this hand of mine
Would surely spoil our whold design;
The bund that plants the gold must bo
(Else all is naught) entirely free
From stain of fraud: and so 1 pray
Your gracious ma jesty will lay
The seed in earth,*' "Yes?no ?in sooth,"
The king replied, "for in my youth
I pilfered from hiy sire: sonic stain,
For all my sorrow may remain.
IVly good prime minister is lu re:

Ofnnyloint," "Nay, he replied.

To be excused, for prudence sake,
And Utrour commissary tako,

For lie, no doubt, can stand the test,"
"Faith,,* said the commissary; "I
