Once upon a time there lived in Gunsboro (near Listowel) a very wealthy man. He had a servant and one of her duties was to clean the milk pan. A very dry summer came and the servant had no water to get to clean the pans which she informed her master. It happened that there was a blessed well in his land and he told her to get water from the well. She brought it and boiled it and when she thought it should be boiled she took it up and there was a trout swimming on top of the water so she showed it to her master and it was then he told her to take the water back to the well.
