The Pretending habits

A miser sold all that he had and bought a lump of gold, which he buried in a hole in the floor next to an old wall. I used to see him every day. One of his workmen observed his frequent visits to the tree and decided to watch his movements. He soon discovered the secret of the hidden treasure. He dug down, came to the lump of gold, and stole it. The Miser, on his next visit, found the hole empty and began to tear his hair and to make loud lamentations. A neighbor, seeing him overcome with grief, said,

“Do not grieve; But go and take a stone and place it in the hole, and fancy that the gold is still there That will make quite the same service;. For when the gold was there, no, I was like you made ??no use of it. “
