Short Stories  
    The Ass and his Purchaser
There was a Man who once wished to purchase an Ass, and agreed with its owner that he should take a trial of the animal before he purchase him.

He took the Ass home and put him in the straw-yard with his other Ass. The new Ass  left all the others and at once joined the one that was most idle and the greatest eater of them all.

 Seeing this, the man put a halter on him and led him back to his owner. The owner asked that how could he  have made a trial of him in a very short time, he answered, "I do not need a trial; I know that he will be just the same as the one he chose for his companion."

Moral: A man is known by the company he keeps.
