The Hunter and the Fisherman

A hunter was returning from the mountains loaded with game and a fisherman was at the same time coming home with his creel full of fish, when they chanced to meet by the way. The hunter took a fancy to a dish of fish, and the fisher preferred a supper of game. So each gave to the other the contents of his basket. They continued daily to exchange provisions, till one who had observed them said; "Now, by this invariable interchange, will they destroy the zest of their meal, and each will soon wish to return to his own store again."
