An artist went to a beautiful part of the country for a holiday,

and stayed with a farmer. Every day he went out with his

paints and his brushes and painted from morning to evening,

and then when it got dark, he went back to the farm and had

a good dinner before he went to bed.

At the end of his holiday he wanted to pay the farmer, but

the farmer said, 'No, I do not want money—but give me one

of your pictures. What is money? In a week it will all be

finished, but your painting will still be here.'

The artist was very pleased and thanked the farmer for

saying such kind things about his paintings.

The farmer smiled and answered, 'It is not that. I have a

son in London. He wants to become an artist. When he comes

here next month, I will show him your picture, and then he

will not want to be an artist any more, 1 think.'
