Every week Jack went to the market to buy food and other things.He put them in a big basket but he was old and weak.So he al-ways paid another man to carry the basket home for him.But one Saturday，while he was walking home in front of the man with the basket，the man ran away with it.
The next Saturday，when Jack went to the market again，a friend of his said，"Look，there he is！The man stole（偷）your thing last week.”
Jack at once hid（藏）behind a shop and stayed there until the man left the market.
His friend was very surprised."Why did you do that？"he asked.
"Well，"said Jack，"that man was cartying my basket when he left me aweek ago.He will want me to pay him for the work，and that will cost me more than a basketful of things！"
