First Year English Moral Stories: Honesty is the Best Policy

Once a poor woodcutter was felling a tree near the bank of the river. By chance, his axe fell into the river. He did not know how to swim. He began to weep over his loss. Suddenly an angel came there. The woodcutter told him his sad story. The angel consoled him. Then he dived into the river and brought out a golden axe. The woodcutter refused to accept because it was not his axe. The angel dived again into the river and brought out a silver axe. But the woodcutter refused to accept it too because it was also not his axe. Upon this, the angel dived for the third time and brought out an iron axe. The woodcutter cried with joy. He at once, accepted it because it was his axe. The angel was much impressed by the honesty of the woodcutter. He gave him the other two axes also as a reward for his honesty.
Moral: 1. Honesty is the best policy.
