Once upon a time there was a man coming home from card playing. 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. 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
