A MATTER OF TRUST
A young boy knocked on the door of a lady's house and asked if she wanted to buy some of the berries he had just picked. "Yes," she said, "and I'll take your pail into the kitchen and measure out two quarts."
The boy stood outside and played with the dog. "Why don't you come in and see that I measure your berries right?" inquired the lady. "How do you know that I may not cheat you?"
"I am not afraid," replied the boy", for you would get the worst of it."
"Get the worst of it?" replied the lady, "What do you mean by that?"
"Why," said the boy, "I'd only lose the berries; you would be a thief !"
