  1. One night Con McCarthy, Banna was coming home after playing cards at a house near by. It was very late and it wasn't long until he spied a little terrier on the road before him.
    Every time the man would stop the little dog would sit down. It kept on running before the man and at last he got afraid of the dog. The little dog ran into his own yard and ran through a flock of geese but the geese never saw it.
    He got courage and followed the dog with a stick. He was following the dog until he came to a gap. The little dog went in through the gap and he was changed into the largest man ever seen.
