The New Eve. A poor woman laments at Eve's curiosity and says women are no longer so. The king lets them enjoy themselves in castle, but they must not open a certain silver jug. The woman cannot let it alone. There is a mouse in the jug. The king sends them home. [In Irish tradition the theme is used in a story which seeks to explain the origin of mice, rats, pigs and cats. A holy person places pieces of his own flesh under a vessel, with orders that nobody is to touch the vessel. Some other person, e.g., a servant girl, disobeys the order and animals run out from under the vessel; a hat is thrown at them and it changes into a cat.]
