Long ago there was a poor man travelling around. He went into a house lodging for the night. Some time after night fall he saw a man of the house going in and out. The last time he came in he told the woman of the house to get ready that the cow calved. She hung a gallon on the beam she got a buairce she put it right over the gallon on the nail and she began to pull it up and down and the milk came as if she was milking a cow. She filled the gallon of milk. It was the nighbour's cow calved. It was how she was taking the neghbour's milk.
