   The Monkey and the Nuts


There was a Certain City which was desiring to purchase a site for a public Deformatory procured an appropriation from the Government of the country.

Deeming this insufficient for purchase of the site and payment of reasonable commissions to themselves, the men in charge of the matter asked for a larger sum, which was readily given.

Believing that the fountain could not be dipped dry, they applied for still more and more yet. Wearied at last by their importunities, the Government said it would be damned if it gave anything.

 So it gave nothing and was damned all the harder.
