    Ah, good judge,"he said ,"This man's horse has killed mine. You must make him pay for my horse.
    Is that true? the judge asked the peasant. The peasant was silent. He was asked many more questions, but he did not say a word At last the judge said,"It's no use. The man can not speak.
    “ Oh yes, he can.” said the landlord.“ He spoke to me very well out there on the road.”
    What did he say? asked the judge.
    He told me not to tie my horse to that tree, because his horse could kill mine. He told me to tie my horse to some other tree.
    Ah,"said the judge. Now I see. So you think your horse must be paid for. Why didn't you do as you were told to and save your horse from death? "Then the judge asked the peasant, Why didn't you answer my questions?”“ I want to make him tell you the true story.” explained the peasant.
