The Emperor's Jade Cricket Box has been stolen!
An investigation was conducted, and there are only two men in The Forbidden City who could have taken it; both work at the palace, both claimed innocence.
The Emperor turned to his Magician in this time of need, asking him to use his powers to find which is guilty. The Magician brought the Emperor and the servants to the outer walls of the palace.
"Cut a stalk of bamboo exactly forty inches tall, and plant them side by side here." he instructed them.
They servants obeyed, one man planted his stalk on the left, the other on the right.
"My Emperor, do you find the two stalks to be identical?"
The Emperor saw that the stalks were exactly the same length.
"In the morning, we shall return to here. The stalk planted by the innocent man will not change, but the stalk planted by the guilty man will grow an inch before sunrise."
The four returned at morning, and saw that the stalk on the right was exactly one inch taller than it's counterpart on the left.
