Accordingly I will ask the Monkeys to water the garden for me, so that I can be off to enjoy myself and keep holiday with the rest." So he called the Monkeys and asked them to water the garden. When the Monkeys had promised to water all the young trees faithfully, the gardener gave them water skins and the wooden pot with which to perform the task. After the gardener had gone, the Monkeys took up the water skins and the watering pot and began to water the young trees. But the leader of the
      monkeys stopped them. "Wait," he said, We must be careful not to waste water. Before you water them, you must first pull up each tree and look at the size of the roots. Then you must give plenty of water to those which have long, deep roots, but less to those with short roots. For when this water is finished, we shall have work to get any more. To be sure," said the other monkeys, "that is what we must do." So they pulled up all the trees just as their leader had told them to do and all the young trees died.
