SERVICE AND THRIFT
THE KING OF THE GOLDEN RIVER; OR, THE BLACK BROTHERS by
JOHN RUSKIN

a waste of red sand and gray mud. The two brothers erept shivering and horror-stricken into the kitchen. The water had gutted the whole first floor; corn, money, almost every movable thing, had been swept away, and there was left only a small white card on the kitchen table. On it, in large, breezy, long-legged letters, were engraved the words:
SOUTHWEST WIND, ESQUIRE

CHAPTER Two
IV. HOW THE BLACK BROTHERS BECAME GOLDSMITHS

Southwest Wind, Esquire, was as good as his word. After the momentous visit above related, he entered the. Treasure Valley no more; and what was worse, he had so much influence with his relations, the West Winds in general, and used it so effectually, that they all adopted a similar line of conduct. So no rain fell in the valley from one year's end to another. Though everything remained green and flourishing in the plains below, the inheritance of the Three Brothers was a desert. What had once been the richest soil in the kingdom became a shifting heap of red
sand; and the brothers, unable longer to contend with the adverse skies, abandoned their valueless patrimony in despair, to seek some means of gaining a livelihood among the cities and people, of the plains. All their money was gone, and they had nothing left but some curious, old fashioned pieces of gold plate, the last remnants of their ill-gotten wealth.
" Suppose we turn goldsmiths?" said Schwartz to Hans, as they entered the large city. "It is a good knave's trade ; we can put a great deal of copper into the gold without anyone's finding it out."
