  1. There was an enchanted goat going to a fair one day. He went into a house and began jumping around and breaking everything. Then the man of the house tried to shove out the goat and when he did he stuck to her. Then he called his wife to pull him off and when she did she stuck to the man.
    The goat stayed jumping around the house till he got out the door with the two stuck to him.
    As they were going the road they came up to a man cleaning the road. The woman asked the man to fire a shovel of gutter to stop the goat and when he did the gutter stuck to the woman, the shovel stuck to the gutter and the man stuck to the shovel.
    There was nothing sold nor bought that day because everyone was looking at the five stuck together going around the green.
