While he was cutting it, his axe fell into the river and was lost. He tried his best to search it but in vain. He was very poor and was not in a position to purchase another.

The Honest Woodcutter

So he began to weep and cry at the loss of it. Mercury, the God of the river, heard his cry and appeared before him.

He asked him why he was weeping. The woodcutter told him that he had only one axe with which he used to cut wood and earn his living. As the axe had fallen into the river, so was he weeping. The god at once jumped into the water and came out with a golden axe. The woodcutter refused to take it.

Then again he dived into the water. Universally reviled, thrown into prison while protesting his innocence, abandoned by friends and family, Wolf retreats into silence.
