A PHILOSOPHIC MISSIONARY - DION CHRYSOSTOM

eight she-goats, an unhorned cow with a very fine calf, four sickles, four hoes, three spears, and a dagger apiece against wild animals. Our pottery is not worth mentioning. We have our wives and children, and we live in two fine huts : our corn and skins are in a third.' ` Yes,' said the orator, ` and perhaps that is where you bury your gold.' ` Come and dig it up• then, fool,' I replied. 'Who buries gold ? It is not a plant.' Then they all laughed-at him, I thought. 'That is what we have. You can have it all freely, if you wish : you need not use force to take anything ; we are not strangers or bad people. We are citizens, so my father told me, and we are bringing up our children to be your fellow citizens.'
The countryman ends his story by describing how he was recognized by one of the audience, whom he had rescued from shipwreck. This man describes how he was wrecked.
OUR ship was completely lost on the Capherean rocks and only a few escaped. One or two were taken in by the dye-fishers : for some happened to have money in their purses. But we, getting to shore absolutely naked, followed a path in the hope of finding a shepherd's or cowherd's shelter, almost dead of hunger and thirst. With difficulty we made our way to some huts, where we stood and shouted, till this countryman came and took us in and lit a fire. He rubbed one of us with dripping, and his wife the other-they had no oil,-and afterwards poured hot water over us, till they revived our frozen bodies. Then they sat us at table and, wrapping us in what they had, put wheaten loaves before us, while they ate millet porridge. They gave us wine, drinking water themselves, and an abundant meal of boiled and roast venison. The next day we wished to go, but they kept us for three days, and then took us on our way to the plain, giving us on our departure meat and a fine skin apiece. My host saw that I was still in a poor condition after my terrible experience and gave me a shirt : it was his daughter's and she put on some rag in its place.'
