At this juncture, I wish to convey a story that was told as a parable concerning “Mine and Yours.” It is said to be a true story.
It is said, two men purchased a cow once. One claimed the head, the front part of the cow, and the other claimed the hind part of the cow. The one who claimed the hind part of the cow forced the man who claimed the front part of the cow to lead the cow around and feed the cow and graze the cow, and he would only come and milk the cow, and get the milk.
He said, “That is my part and I will not feed the hind part of the cow, for the hind part of the cow does not have to eat, so you will have to lead and feed and graze the cow from the front part and also give her water and everything like that.”
So the other fellow got tired of doing such, so he turned in and decided to get even with John, he said. So he killed his part; which was the front part, and the other man’s part died. This is a story as a fairy tale, but said to be true.
