One night, four theives went to a farmer's house to steal.There was light in the house.So, the thieves hid themselves among the plaintain tree.Farmer heard them talking.He knew that there were thieves hiding in the compound.He planned a trick to fool them.He called his wife and said,"You see there are so many thieves these days".

  "Yes, but what should we do ?" asked his wife.

  "We will fool them", said Farmer

  "How ?" asked wife.

  "I will put the ornaments and gold coins in a box and throw it in the well.The thieves will get nothing from our house".

  "Very good idea", said his wife.

  The thieves were listening to all these.They thought Farmer did not know about them.They sat quietly in their hiding place.

  Farmer took a wooden box and put a few stones in it.When his wife asked the reason, he signed her to keep quiet.Next, he closed the box and locked it.Both the husband and wife carried the box to the well.He whispered to her to say "Yes!" when he asked anything.

  "All our gold is in the box,isn't it ?" Farmer asked loudly.

  "Yes, it is", said the wife.

  Then farmer threw the box into the well.It fell with a loud noise.

  The thieves were listening to all these.They thought all the gold was in the box.

  Farmer and his wife went inside the house and slept.The theives decided to empty the well and take the box.They drew all the water by dawn and took the box.With great difficulty,they broke the lock and opened the box.There were only stones in it.

  Next morning,Farmer and his wife came out to see what happened .They had a hearty laugh.The thieves had watered all the plants !
