Once upon a time there was a man going home from cardplaying. It was after twelve o'clock. When he was coming across the fields he saw a man playing cards before him on a table. The Stranger asked the other man to take a hand and the man agreed While the man was playing he looked down at the stranger's feet. He could see the lights. They were very queer feet. The man went home and he never saw that man again
