  1. A Woodman was felling a tree on the bank of a river, when his axe,
    glancing off the trunk, flew out of his hands and fell into the water.
    As he stood by the water’s edge lamenting his loss, Mercury appeared
    and asked him the reason for his grief. On learning what had happened,
    out of pity for his distress, Mercury dived into the river and,
    bringing up a golden axe, asked him if that was the one he had lost.
    The Woodman replied that it was not, and Mercury then dived a second
    time, and, bringing up a silver axe, asked if that was his. “No,
    that is not mine either,” said the Woodman. Once more Mercury dived
    into the river, and brought up the missing axe. The Woodman was
    overjoyed at recovering his property, and thanked his benefactor
    warmly; and the latter was so pleased with his honesty that he made
    him a present of the other two axes. When the Woodman told the story
    to his companions, one of these was filled with envy of his good
    fortune and determined to try his luck for himself. So he went and
    began to fell a tree at the edge of the river, and presently contrived
    to let his axe drop into the water. Mercury appeared as before, and,
    on learning that his axe had fallen in, he dived and brought up a
    golden axe, as he had done on the previous occasion. Without waiting
    to be asked whether it was his or not, the fellow cried, “That’s mine,
    that’s mine,” and stretched out his hand eagerly for the prize: but
    Mercury was so disgusted at his dishonesty that he not only declined
    to give him the golden axe, but also refused to recover for him the
    one he had let fall into the stream.

    “Honesty is the best policy.”
