Sample story:

The hungry Arab

An Arab, lost in the desert, had not eaten for 2 days, and was threatened with starvation

Passing near one of these wells where the caravans come to water their camels, he sees a small leather bag on the sand; he picks it up, he feels it "Allah be blessed! he says; they are, I believe, dates or hazelnuts."

Full of this sweet hope, he hastens to open the bag; but at the sight of what it contains: "Alas! he exclaimed painfully, they are only pearls!"
