There was a boy, studying in Std.VI stole a lesson-book from one of his school friends and took it home to his Mother.

She not only avoid from beating him, but encouraged him.

He next time stole a cloak and brought it to her, and she again criticize him.

The Youth, advanced to adulthood, proceeded to steal things of still greater value.

 At last he was caught in the very act, and having his hands bound behind him, was led away to the place of public execution.

 His Mother followed in the crowd and violently bate her chest in sorrow, whereupon the young man said, "I wish to say something to my Mother in her ear."

 She came close to him, and he quickly caught her ear with his teeth and bit it off.

 The Mother upbraided him as an unnatural child, whereon he replied, "Ah! if you had beaten me when I first stole and brought to you that lesson-book, I should not have come to this, nor have been thus led to a disgraceful death."
