Once upon a time a man was coming home from cardplaying. He had been roguing all night. He met a man on the road who came along with him. He came to a house and the people of the house were saying the Rosary. So the man disappeared. The boy was then coming away so he met the same man again. They came to house and the children were fighting. The stranger went into the and the boy went home. That was the devil.
