THE WOMAN AND HER HEN
THRIFTY Woman kept a Hen that could be depended on to lay an egg every
morning. The watchful Woman thought within herself, "If I were
to double my Henís allowance of barley, she would lay twice a
day." So she tried her plan,
 and the Hen become so fat and sleek that she left off laying at all.
Thrift sometime overreaches, and figures are not always facts.
