Next morning the Khoja could not for the life of him remember which was his own horse, and he was much afraid of being cheated if he confessed this to the rest. So, as they were all coming out, he seized his bow and arrow, and aimed among the horses at random. "Don't shoot!" cried the men; "what is the matter?"
