A fisherman once took his bagpipes to the hank of a river, and played upon them with the hope of making the fish rise; but never a one put his nose out of the water. So he cast his net into the river and soon drew it forth filled with fish. Then he took his bagpipes again, and, a he plavcd the fish leapt up in the net. "Ah, you dance now when I play' said he. "Yes' said an old fish, "When you are in a man's power you must do as he bids you."
