One evening long agao in harvestime a strange thing was seen coming flying through the air. It was like a strange train and was loaded with white people There was an old fort in the village where fairies used often be seen and heard dancing and singing There was a lake near by. When this strange train came to the lake it droped all at once on the lake and was sending steam up in the air. After a while it droped into the fort and was never seen again.
