  1. Once a man named Tom Scanlon was going
    through a bog in Taverane at a very late hour.
    Suddenly he saw two small men with red jackets
    and one of them asked him to dance but he said
    he did not know how to dance but even if he did
    he could not dance in the bog. One of them stooped
    down and scraped the ground with his finger and a
    flag came up. After a while dancing the men
    asked him to play the flute. He was a very bad
    player but when they asked him to play a tune he
    was able to play it and before long he was a great
    player and dancer. Then they said they would leave
    him home and just as he was about to tell them
    go they had disappeared.
