Once upon a time in an undefined city was a doctor who was selling yellow paint. This was of so singular a virtue that whoso was bedaubed with it from head to heel was set free from the dangers of life, and the bondage of sin, and the fear of death for ever. All citizens in the city were painted in yellow. In the same city was a young man of a very good family but he had a reckless life and he always postponed painting in yellow. He had the best friend who had a reckless life just like the main hero. Suddenly his friend was run down by a water-cart. The main hero applied to the doctor to paint him in yellow.
