The Farmer and His Sons

A FATHER, being on the point of death, wished to be sure that his

sons would give the same attention to his farm as he himself had

given it. He called them to his bedside and said, "My sons,

there is a great treasure hid in one of my vineyards." The sons,

after his death, took their spades and mattocks and carefully dug

over every portion of their land. They found no treasure, but

the vines repaid their labor by an extraordinary and

superabundant crop.
