- 5. There were people in a house one night and one of them said "I am not afraid at night." "Well" said the other "if you do this thing, we will say you are not afraid." "What is it?" said the man.
"Will you go to the graveyard and nail a bit of paper to a tree." "I will." So off he went. When he was nailing it he nailed the tail of his coat to the tree also. When he started off again he got a shock. He thought something had (a) hold of him. Then he fainted. After this he did not boast of his fearlessness.
