There was a man in this parish. When he was going to Mass one Sunday he met a tiny woman. She told him that she would make him very rich if he would go home and not go to Mass any more and to wear the front of his shirt on the back, and to wear a piece of red cloth inside his coat,He did so and became very rich,
POOR SCHOLAR;
There was a man named Captain Bernard who gave much employment in the Famine times, He had many horses and men and money and cultivated the mountains,He himself had no nose,and he offered a large reward to the person who could tell anything that men,money or horses could not do, The poor scholar read the notice and wrote underneath; All the men,money in the place,would not put a nose on Captain Bernards face.
