     The Three Tradesmen


There was a Great city which was surrounded by the armed force, and its inhabitants were called together to consider the best means of protecting it from the enemy.

 A Bricklayer gave an idea that the bricks are the best material for an effective resistance and also affordable easily.

 A Carpenter, with equal enthusiasm, proposed timber as a preferable method of defense.

Upon which a Currier stood up and said, "Sirs, I differ from you altogether: there is no material for resistance equal to a covering of hides; and nothing so good as leather."

Moral: Every man for himself.
