The story is called "The Californian's Tale". It was written by Mark Twain. When I was young, I went looking for gold in California, I never found enough to make me rich, but I did discover a beautiful part of the country.

For many years, Charles Kuralt traveled across the United States, telling interesting stories about Americans. His stories were broadcast on the CBS televison network. Later, some were published in books.I had the somewhat unrealistic idea that I would find interesting stories at every crossroads throughout the American countryside. So the cameraman, soundman and I started out with great hope from New York City.For a few rainy days, we drove through the small towns of New England, the northeast corner of the United States.

On his way out, he passed Mr. Sam Carr, the little gray hair man who owned the store. Mr. Carr looked up at Alfred as he passed and said in a very soft voice, ''Just a moment, Alfred, one moment before you go.''Mr. Carr spoke so quietly that he worried Alfred. ''What is it, Mr. Carr?''''Maybe you'd be good enough to take a few things out of your pockets and leave them here before you go.'' Said Mr. Carr. ''What things?
