Moral: Counsel without help is useless.

A boy bathing in a river was in danger of being drowned.

He called out to a passing traveller for help, but instead of holding out a helping hand, the man stood by unconcernedly, and scolded the boy for his imprudence.

“Oh, sir!” cried the youth, “pray help me now and scold me afterwards.”
