  1. Long ago a man dreamt he saw the place where a box of gold was buried. He was also warned not to curse. In the morning he began to dig in a field where the gold was. At the fall of evening he hit a box. At once he let a shout calling the holy name. at once he heard cows wailing. He at once set off to see what was wrong. He got to the gate and to his Horrow he saw the devil. He got lock jawed and died soon after. That was what he got for cursing and it happened at Gory
