It was а cold and stormy night. А traveler was riding а horse. It was raning cats
and dogs and he was wet to the skin. He had been riding for a few hours before he could find an inn.
When he entered the inn he saw а lot of people there. They were sitting in front of the fire and there wasn't а seat left for him. A good idea struck him. He called the waiter and said to him in а loud voice. "Boy, take а plate of oysters to my horse."
Everybody was surprised. The waiter put some oysters on the plate and went out. Naturally, the other people went out to see if the horse was eating the oysters. А few
minutes later the waiter returned with the news that the horse had refused to eat the oysters. When the other people returned they saw that the traveler was sitting comfortably in а chair. He was warming his feet beside the fire. And suddenly everybody realized why the traveler had ordered the waiter to take the oysters to the horse.
