Once on a time there was a man, who had to drive his sledge to the wood for fuel. So a Bear met him.
‘Out with your horse’, said the Bear, ‘or I’ll strike all your sheep dead by summer.’
‘Oh! heaven help me then’, said the man; ‘there’s not a stick of firewood in the house; you must let me drive home a load of fuel, else we shall be frozen to death. I’ll bring the horse to you to- morrow morning.’
Yes! on those terms he might drive the wood home, that was a bargain; but Bruin said, ‘if he didn’t come back, he should lose all his sheep by summer’.
