AESOP'S  FABLES            


229 - Jupiter and the Fox



Admired Jupiter of the intelligence and delicacy of the fox, awarded him the reign on the animals. 

He wanted, nevertheless, to know if, on having changed fortune, the Fox had changed also his inclinations, and, being the new king visiting him in his berth, allowed
Jupiter a beetle to fall down in front of his eyes.

Then the fox, unable to control itself, seeing the beetle to flutter about his berth, jumped out, and despising the expediencies, tried to catch the beetle. 

Indignant Jupiter of his conduct, returned the fox to his ancient state.


The nature, or way of life of the persons, do not change on having changed title.
