The Honest Woodcutter 

     Once there was a poor woodcutter who cried aloud because he had dropped his axe into a deep pond. Suddenly, a friendly water spirit appeared before him with a silver axe and asked, “IS this yours?” 

    “No,” the woodcutter said. 

      The spirit returned with a golden axe. “Is this yours?” she asked again. 

      “No, it is not mine,”said the woodcutter. 

       Then, the spirit appeared with his plain wooden axe. 

      “That one is mine!” said the woodcutter happily. 

       To hear the answer, the spirit said, “You’ve been so honest, so take the gold and silver axes too!” 

       On the way home, the woodcutter met a rich merchant. When the merchant heard the woodcutter’s story, he ran to the pond and dropped his wooden axe in it. He also cried aloud. The same thing happened. The spirit appeared with a silver axe. The same merchant shouted quickly, “That one is mine!”
