By an unlucky chance a fox fell into a deep well from which he could not get out. A goat passed by shortly afterwards, and asked the fox what he was doing down there.

"Oh, have you not heard?" said the fox, "There is going to be a great drought, so I jumped down here in order to he sure to have water by me. Why don't you come down too? 1 ' The goat thought well of this advice, and jumped down into the well. Bur the fox immediately jumped on her hack, and by putting his foot on her long horns managed to jump up to the edge of the well

"Good-bye, friend:" said the fox, "Remember next time, never trust the advice of one in difficulties."
