  1. (continued from previous page)
    loved this young man.
    In Augalochy churchyard that consecrated ground.
    Surrounded by his weeping friends his body was laid down.
    So let you crave the son of God who died for great and small.
    To grant him that eternal crown He has prepared for all.

  2. Once upon a time there was a man who stole a lot of money and the policemen were often after him. He had no place to hide so he thought of a vault that was in a graveyard where coffins were deposited. He went in and hid there and he forgot to bring matches or a candle. When he was a while there he looked around him he saw two eyes looking at a him. He ran away leaving the money after him.
    But what do you think was looking at him but an owl that went in when he opened the door. The man was never caught.
