The Table, the Sifter and the Pinchers

Once upon a time there was a man who was very poor. He had so many children it was difficult to earn money enough to provide for them all. Accordingly, he left home and hired out to the king of a distant land.

At the end of a year’s time he went to the king and said: “I have served you faithfully for a whole year. Now I wish to return to my wife and children. Pay me, I pray you, what you owe me for my work.”

The king said: “I will not reward you in money. I will give you something better than money. Here is a table. When you are hungry all you have to do is to say, ‘Table, set yourself.’ Then the table will immediately be spread with food.”

“Thank you, good king,” replied the man. “With this table it will be easy enough to provide food even for all my large family.”

When the man had started home with his table he soon grew hungry.
