  1. Story
    There is a story of a man one time who had a number of cows in full milk (however) When he churned the milk however he had no butter. He asked a neighbour what he should do to get back his butter. The neighbour told him to break up a silver coin and put it in his gun and keep on view of the cows until dawn. This he did and at daylight he saw a hare sucking his cows. He fired and killed the hare. When he went to lift the dead animal he found not the body of the hare but that of his brother.
