On the outskirts of town, there was a huge nut tree by the cemetery fence.
One day two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out
of sight, and began dividing the nuts. "One for you, one for me. One for

boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they
tried to get a glimpse of Satan.
At last they heard, "One for you, one for me. And one last one for you.
That's all. Now let's go get those nuts by the fence, and we'll be
