Oululnjr a Jew.
Nine persons sailed from Basle down
the Rhine. A Jew, who wished to go
to Schalampi, was allowed to come on
hoard, and journey with them, upon
condition that lie would cMKluct him
self with propriety, aud give the cap
tain eighteen kreutzers for his passage.
Now it is true something jingled in
the Jew's pocket when lie' Struck his
hand against it. but the only money
therein was a twelve kreutzer piece,
tor the other was a brass button. Not
withstanding this, he accepted the ot
ter wish gratitude; for he thought to
himself, "something nciy be earned,
even upon the water. There is many
a man who has grown fat upon the
During the first part of the voyage,
the passengers were very talkative aitd
merry, and the Jew, with his wallet
under bis arm for he did not lay it
aside was the sole object of much
mirth and mockery, as. alas ! is often
the ease with those ot his Hfltioi. But
as the vessel sailed onward, and pass
ed TliuriuKeti and St. Veit, thepasseii
ger, one after another, grow silent,
and gaped and gazed listlessly down
the river, until one cried :
"Come, Jew! do you know any
pastime that will amuse us? Your
lathers must have contrived many u
one during their journey in the wilder
ness."' "Now is the time." said the Jew,
"to shear my sheep !" and he propos
ed that they should sit around in a
circle and propose rations curious
rations to each other, and he, with
ir permission, would sit with them.
Those who could not answer the ques
tions should pay the one who propoun
ded them a twelve kreuticr piece, and
those who answered them pertinently
should receive a twelve kreutwr piece.
This proKsal pleased the company ;
and hoping to divert themselves with
the Jew's wit or stupidity, each one
asked at random whatever chanced to
enter his head.
Thus, lor example, the first asked :
"How many soft boiled eggs could the
giant Goliath eat upon an empty
All said it. was impossible to answer
that question ; and each paid htm
But the Jew said: "One; for he
who has eaten one egg cannot eat a
second upon an empty stomach;"
and the others paid him twelve krent
zers. The second thought : "Wait, Jew!
I will try you out of the New Testa
ment, and I think I shall win my
piece. Why did the Apostle Paul
write the Second Epistle to the Cor
inthians?" The Jew said: "Because he was
not in Corinth: otherwise, he would
have spoken to them."
So he won anotlier twelve kreutzer
When tlie third saw that the Jew
was so well versed in the Blbie, he
tried him in a different way : "Who
prolonged his work to as great a length
as possible, and completes it in time?"
"Tlte ropemaker, if lie be industri
ons," said the Jew.
In the mean while they drew near to
a village, and one said to the other :
"That is Bamlach."
Then the fourth asked : "Iu what
month do the people of Banilach eat
The Jew said : "In February for it
lias only twenty-eight days."
The fifth said : "There are two nat
ural brothers, and still only one of
them is my uncle."
The Jew said: "The uncle is your
father's brother, and your father is not
A fish leaped out of the water, and
the sixth asked, "What fish have their
eyes nearest to-gether ?"
The Jew said, "The smallest."
The seventh asked, "How canaman
ride from Basle to Berne,in the sliade,
in summer time, when the sun shines?"
The Jew said, "When he comes to a
place where there is no sliade, he must
dismount and go on foot."
The eighth asked, "When a man
rides in the winter time from Berne to
Basle, and has forgotten his gloves,
how must he manage so that his hands
shall not freeze?"
The Jew said, "He must make fists
out of them."
The ninth was the last. This one
asked, "How can live persons divide
five eggs so that each man shall re
Cjive one, and still one remain in the
The Jew said, "The last must take
the dish with the egg, and he can let
it lie there as long as he pleases."
But now it came to his turn, and he
determined to make a good sweep.
After many preliminary compliments
he asked, with a mischievious friend
liness, "How can a man fry two trout
in three pans, so that a trout may lie
in each pan ?"
No one could answer this, and one
after the other gave him a twelve
But when the ninth desired that he
should solve the riddle, he rocked to
and fro, shrugged his shoulders, and
rolled his eyes. "I am a poor Jew,"
lie said at last.
The rest cried, "What has that to do
with it ? Give us the answer."
"You must not take it amiss, for I
am a poor Jew ?" At last after much
persuasion, and many promises that
they would do him no harm he
thrust, his hand into his pocket, took
out one of the twelve kreutzer piece
that he had won. laid it upon the table,
and sakl, "1 do not know the answer
