Once upon a time a widow was evicted from her home by a landlord. She knew the person who was getting the house and so she determined to have revenge on him.
Before she was put out of the house, she put on a good fire. She then got some black sstones and coated the fire with them. She then cursed the man and his children
One day the man was kicked by a horse and killed. Another day his two children fell into a river and were drowned.
