The other day one such was caught crossing our front carrying a fine consignment of fish. He was led before me and im mediately fell upon his .knees, kissing my hands and jabbering (I suppose) a prayer for mercy. However, his fears soon subsided when I produced some glittering silver pieces, but only to reappear when ...
