A farmer named Ai Luozuo bought a thin The buffalo had originally negotiated 50 silver coins, but Ai Luozuo lost his head for a moment and gave all his savings—100 silver coins to the other party. It wasn't until he took the ox home that he remembered that he had paid 50 silver coins more. When he went back to ask for it, Mahasati refused to accept it.

Ai Luozuo asked Zhurabati for help, and Zhurabati followed him to Mahasati's house.

Mahasati said: "My money is packed in a wooden box. Now I have 1,500 of his money, plus the 50 cow money he paid today, and the total is 1,550." He said, and took out a small wooden box, Opening the lid of the box, he pointed to the bright white silver coins and said, "There are 1,500 coins inside, all of which belong to me. There are also 50 scattered on the ground, which are money for selling cattle."

Zhu Laboti took all the money Pour onto a mat and spread evenly. After a while, I saw many flies flying low above the money, and finally landed on a small part of the money in the middle and did not move.

You’d better hurry up Go and pick out 50 of the coins that the flies crawled over, and return them to Elozzo.”

Mahasati blushed, knowing that he couldn’t hide it, so he had to return the 50 silver coins to Ellozzo.


You know, flies like fishy smell, and the clever Zhurabati took advantage of this characteristic of flies, and quickly helped Elozuo get back his own money.
