THE HEDGE AND THE VINEYARD

[186]

A
FOOLISH young Heir, who had come into possession of his wise fatherís estate, broke up all the Hedges about his Vineyard because they bore no grapes. The throwing down of these fences laid his grounds open to man and beast, and his vines were presently destroyed. The simple fellow learned, when it was too late, that it was quite as necessary to protect his Vineyard as to possess it.
