THE CROW AND THE PITCHER

A Crow that was extremely thirsty found a Pitcher with a little water in it, but it lay so low he could not come at it. He tried first to break the Pitcher and then to overturn it, but it was both too strong and too heavy for him. He be-thought himself, however, of a device at last that did the business; which was, by dropping a great many little pebbles into the water and raising it, that way, till he had it within reach.
