Two cowboys met an Indian who was lying on the side of the road, pressing his ear to the ground. One cowboy said:
- Do you see that Indian man there? Doesn’t he look like a Taoist?
- Oh, yeah. And he was listening to something. Do you know that Taoists can detect the noise from miles away?
At that moment, the Indian opened his eyes, whispering:
- A carriage, about two miles away with two horses, one is brown, another is white. There is a man, and a woman...
A cowboy turned to the other with pure admiration:
- Genuine! This Taoist man can only tell every details, just by listening.
The lips of the "Taoist" were moving again. The two cowboy got closer, just to hear him said:
-... they hit me about an hour ago.
