Hi Viiier, however, was just the
reverse of the Sultan.
The Sultan was easily offended, how
ever; and the Vizier did not dare to
remonstrate with him on his careless
government' nor counsel him to mend
But the Viiier was t very sagacious
and ingenious man, and he at length
devised a plan whereby he could bring
home to the Sultan some idea of the
deplorable state into which the tountry

and was ticver weary of listening to
them. Indeed, he often hired profev

"Tell it to me ; tell it to me," ordered
the monarch. "No one has ever told

And the Viiier then told the itory,
which was the kind of a story which is
called a fable,
"Oh, my Lord Sultan, there lived
once two owls, both very wise birds,
and one of these owls lived' in El
Basra." "That is the kingdom next to mine,"
said the Sultan.
