Once, a necklace was lost from the house of a rich man.  There were many servants working in that house. Naturally, it was suspected that the necklace had been stolen by someone of the servants. The rich man asked each of his servants but no one admit the charge. So, he made a complaint before the judge.

The judge summoned all the servants. They came to the judge and denied the charge as before. The judge was very wise and clever. He hit upon a plan to detect the real thief.  He gave each servant a stick of the same length and asked to submit the sticks next day. He also mentioned that the stick of the real thief would increase an inch by magical touch.
All the servants went back home and kept their sticks as they were innocent. But the servant who stole the necklace cut the stick by an inch thinking that it would rise an inch within the night and would become as before.
Next morning when all the servants submitted their sticks to the judge, the real thief was easily detected. Thus the wise judge recovered the necklace and sent the real thief to jail as punishment.
