    the treasurer would drink a light poison before coming to kings place. then as he planned, he would get the strongest poison from the pharmacist and it would cancel the effect of the weak poison. Then he just drinks his own poison which is nothing but plain water. So he thought he would survive.

    The pharmacist on the other hand would have to drink water and then the strongest poison, so he would surely die. This was what the treasurer came up with.

    Knowing this , the pharmacist came up with the same plan. He too just brought alongwith him plain water. The treasurer died of his own poison ( poor guy )
    The stupid king only got water.
