The Crows’ Challenge

English Story 12 - Two crows challenged each other to see which of them could fly highest, whilst carrying a sack of an agreed size.
The first crow filled his sack with cotton and laughed at the other crow who had filled his Instead with salt, which was much heavier.
When, however, It began to rain, as the second crow had expected, the salt began to dissolve.
The cotton absorbed the rain water and became so heavy that the first crow did not even have the strength to get off the ground, and he had to admit defeat.
