Paul Elder & Co., San Francisco, publishers. TWO MERCHANTS A certain merchant, who was not very wealthy, once had a great desire to make a long Journey. "It Is neces sary," said lie, "that before I go I should leave some part of my estate in the city, to the end that If I meet with ill luck' In my travels I may have something to keep me at my return." So he delivered a great number of bars of iron, which were a principal part of his wealth, In trust to one of liia friends to keep until he should come again, and then, saying farewell, away he went. , Sometime aftec, having had but Ill luck in his travels, he returned home, and the first thing he did was to go to his friend and demand his iron. His friend, who had owed several sums of his own debts, answered: "Truly, friend, I put your iron Into a closed locked room, thinking it would be as socure as my own gold, but an accident happened, which nobody could have ex pected, for there was a rat in the room, white ate it all up." The merchant, pretending Ignorance, replied: "It is a terrible misfortune to me, indeed; but I know of old that rats love iron very much. They have thus done me damage many times before, and so I can better bear my present calamity." This answer extremely pleased the friend, who was glad to hear the merchant so well inclined to believe that a rat had eaten his iron, and to remove all suspicion desired him to dine with him the next day. The merchant promised that he would, but in the meantime he met one of his friend's children, whom he car ried home and locked in a room. The next day he went to his friend, who seemed to be in great affliction, and he asked the cause of this as though he diil not know what had happened. "Oh, my dear friend," wailed the other, "ex cuse me if I am not as cheerful as I ought'to be! I have lost one of my children and have had him cried by sound of trumpet, but I do not know what has become of-him." "i)li," replied the merchant. "I am grieved to hear this, for yesterday evening as I went from here I saw an owl in the air with a child in its claws; but whether It was yours I cannot tell." •'Why, you foolish, absurd fellow!" cried the friend. "Are you not ashann d to tell such a stupid lie? An owl that weigh! not above three pounds, can be carry a boy that weighs about fifty?" "Why," retorted the merchant, "do you make such a wonder at that, as if in a country where one rat can eat a hundred tons of iron, Is It strange for an owl to carry a child that weighs only fifty pounds?" 'I'll.- friend on this found that the merchant was no such fool as he took him to be, begged his pardon for try ing to cheat him, restored to him the value of his iron, and so had his child again.
