Long ago there lived in Six-Mile-Bridge a Giant named Andy he used to live in a tent made of bags. His food was sheep and goats.
One day he met a man and told him if he was able to trow a stone farther than he was he would kill him. The giant first threw a stone about twenty pounds, then the man threw it but did not go as far as the giant. The giant was going to kill him but the had a gun and shot the giant.
