Description
Story of the baboon who kept on jumping on and off a drum till he died. There was a man who had the brilliant idea of putting a pole across the path by which a baboon entered his fields, and a drum on the far side. The baboon leaping over the pole landed on the drum and did a back somersault over the pole again. The sound so delighted the baboon that he went on the leaping and back somersaulting until he died of exhaustion.
