Mystery Sack
Two men carry a heavy sack between them. It contains something very precious to both of them, and though they barely have the strength to lift it, the question of abandoning the sack does not even occour to them. Soon the men see a third man in the distance. The immediately bury the sack and join the new man, never to return to it.

What was in the sack?


(You can ask a few questions first to narrow it down rather than guessing straight at the answer)

Were the two men intending to bury the sack when they started carrying it?
