范仲淹得罪了当朝的权贵,被贬为江州知府。这一日,他正在巡视江州的河堤,忽听衙门里的差役前来禀报,说石河县县令刘能遇到了一个怪案子,审不下去了,想请他帮忙到石河县去处理一下。

石河县的县令刘能办案也是很有一套的,他绝不是一个饱食终日的庸官。究竟遇到了什么难办的案子,还得请他去協助呢?范仲淹心里怀疑,坐上轿子,半个时辰后,就来到了石河县。

石河县只是一个人不过万的小县,县衙房顶上的瓦缝里长满了狗尾巴草。刘能大老远地把范仲淹接到了县衙内。

县衙内的摆设很是陈旧,可是打扫得非常干净。只见在大堂的正中跪着一男一女,男的名叫何睿,女的是个哑巴,名叫哑姑,是他的老婆。两个人一起生活了三四年,何睿考中了秀才后,竟不要哑姑了。他上堂的意思就是要休了哑姑,可是哑姑不同意,两个人这一闹就闹到了县衙的大堂上。今天刘能就是被何睿休妻的案子给难住了。

范仲淹最恨忘恩负义之人,一听何睿刚考上个小小的秀才就想休妻,不由得大怒。他坐到了公案后面的椅子上,一拍惊堂木,喝道:“何睿,本官问你,哑姑究竟犯了七出之条的哪一条了?”

何睿“嘿嘿”一阵冷笑道:“难道没犯七出之条,本秀才就不能休妻了吗?”

范仲淹一见何睿强词夺理,也懒得和他计较,把头转向哑姑,将语气缓和一下,说道:“哑姑,你是什么意思?”

范仲淹把话问完,觉得有些唐突。不会说话的哑姑,却从身后拿出四个小布包。等她把四个小布包一一打开,范仲淹一下子就看呆了,看着布包里的东西,这才明白刘能被难住的原因。

只见第一个布包里放着四个果子,分别是石榴、梨、荸荠和青枣。第二个包里是两件衣服,一件新的一件旧的。第三个包袱打开,更是奇怪,是一个围棋子、几个粽子和一把破笤帚。最后一个包里是一块绣花用的白绢子和一块土布,还有两张干巴巴的旱烟叶!这些东西都代表着啥意思?

范仲淹揉着想得发痛的脑袋对何睿说道:“何秀才,你和哑姑生活了这么多年,你说说,她包里的东西究竟代表什么意思?”

何睿脸色一红,说道:“我也不知道!”

刘能伏到范仲淹的耳边,低声说道:“范大人,我想明白了,哑姑的东西就是要告诉我们,这秀才的吃穿住用都是她一个人打理的,那意思就是要我们替她做主,不叫秀才休了她才对!”

范仲淹想了想,说道:“刘大人分析得也有一些道理,我觉得那四包东西代表的意思可能是另有所指!”可是不弄明白哑姑的意思,这案子也没法判呀。刘能就把自己的分析对哑姑一说,哑姑却连连摇头,看来他猜得真的不对。

眼看时间也不早了,范仲淹和刘能一商量,宣布退堂,告诉哑姑把那四包东西留下,明天再来听判。

当晚,范仲淹就住在了石河县,他把哑姑包里的东西放到了桌子上,翻看了好一阵,也想不出个所以然来。听更夫已经打了二更,范仲淹穿鞋下地,披着便衣,找到了一个认路的老人家,叫这老人家带路,出了角门。两个人走了半个多时辰,这才来到了何睿的家。何睿的家里还亮着油灯,透过何睿家的窗户纸,可以清楚地看到何睿正在灯下写字,而哑姑则站在一旁磨墨呢!

范仲淹点了点头,回到了县衙,他望着桌子上的东西笑了。第二天一大早,何睿领着哑姑就来了。范仲淹脸色一沉,“啪”的一拍惊堂木,指着何睿的鼻子呵斥道:“何睿,只要你能说出布包里的东西代表的意思,本大人就给你做主,判你可以休妻另娶!”

何睿一听,满脸兴奋,他指着那四包东西说道:“我明白哑姑的意思,她是想说我考取了功名,是因为她专心照顾我的缘故,叫我不要休了她。我将来那可是要高中状元的,将来的状元娘子怎么也不能是个哑巴吧?”

“胡说!”范仲淹狠狠地一拍惊堂木,他指着地上的那四个包袱,把哑姑要表达的意思讲了出来,原来那是四句借物暗喻诗——十六(石榴)清早(青枣)逼妻(荸荠)离(梨),想要新衣(新衣服)换旧衣(旧衣服)。多年(一堆粘食粽子)妻子(棋子)如敝帚(破笤帚),秀才(绣花的底料白绢)汗颜(旱烟)不(布)汗颜!

范仲淹刚说了何睿几句,没想到何睿脾气还挺拧,他指着自己头顶的秀才板巾说道:“我的文章浩瀚,可以说是惊天动地,只要有人举荐我,我一定能考个状元回来给你们看!”

范仲淹一见何睿竟这样轻狂,吩咐刘能准备纸笔,当堂命题,叫他做一篇文章看看。何睿真的不知道天高地厚,拿起笔来,刷刷点点,一篇文章写好了。范仲淹一看,鼻子差点被气歪,何睿写的文章简直就是狗屁不通!

范仲淹想了想说道:“既然没有人举荐你,本大人倒可以做你的举荐人,只不过中与不中,你以后都不许再提休妻另娶了,否则本大人将严惩不贷!”

何睿一听范大人要举荐自己,高兴得连连点头,再也不敢提休哑姑了。范仲淹提起笔来,给自己的政敌——当朝的奸相吕夷简写了一封举荐信。三天后,何睿欢天喜地地拿着举荐信直奔京城,来到相府,把举荐信递了上去。奸相吕夷简一见书信大奇,这范仲淹是被自己迫害才被贬出京的啊,向自己举荐举子,范仲淹是什么意思呢?

吕夷简越想越奇怪,命手下人把何睿叫到了府中。等何睿一写文章,吕夷简竟被气乐了,好一个蠢材啊,正好可以拿来羞辱举荐的范仲淹。何睿就这样被破格准许参加殿试。皇上手里拿着殿试举子的卷子,一张接一张地开始评阅。评到何睿卷子的时候,皇上的朱笔停住了,何睿这篇文章写得太好了,立意精妙、字字珠玑啊!

皇上一见卷子下面的举荐人竟是范仲淹,就把何睿叫了过来,一问治国之策,何睿竟对答如流,皇上一听大喜,钦点何睿为本科头名状元。

吕夷简一见何睿前后判若两人,才知道自己被骗了,气得那是连连咬牙。这个何睿假装文笔不通,其实就是想借助自己和范仲淹的矛盾,直接参加殿试啊!

何睿被外放柳州知府。这个柳州和江州紧挨着,何睿领着哑姑上任的那天,大堂门口被范仲淹撂下了一个桌子,只见那上面有四个盘子,盘子里竟分别摆放着四样东西。

很显然,当初何睿骗过了范仲淹,范仲淹今天要借题难为他一下了。

第一个盘子里放了一个连萝卜缨都一起切碎了的大萝卜,第二个盘子里放了个用烂木头雕成的官印,第三个盘子里放着一块六面见方的惊堂木,最后一个盘子里的东西更奇怪,竟是一个没有嘴巴的小泥人,泥人身上穿着红裙子!

哑姑见何睿被难住,她走到了桌子面前,对范仲淹深施一礼,提起笔来,写下了四行字——不分青红皂白,就是坏官蠢材。想要堂堂正正,多听哑姑安排!

看着哑姑写成的四句话,范仲淹哈哈大笑,他想说的就是这个意思啊。

范仲淹为官清正,从来没有举荐过任何人,那夜见到哑姑为何睿磨墨,知道他们夫妻恩爱,休妻另娶的后面一定有问题。他索性将计就计,给奸相吕夷简写了一封举荐信,一番奇遇巧合后,最后果然成全了何睿。
