     The Man and the Fish Horn

There was a Truthful Man, finding a musical instrument in the road, asked the name of it, and was told that it was a fish-horn.

 The next time he went fishing he set his nets and blew the fish-horn all day to charm the fish into them; but at nightfall there were not only no fish in his nets, but none along that part of the coast.

Meeting a friend while on his way home he was asked what luck he had.

"Well," said the Truthful Man, "the weather is not right for fishing, but it's a red-letter day for music."
