Fairy Men Captured
: FAIRY MEN CAPTURED.
: Welsh Folk-lore
There are many tales current of wee Fairy men having been captured.
These tales are, however, evidently variants of the same story. The
dwarfs are generally spoken of as having been caught by a trapper in his
net, or bag, and the hunter, quite unconscious of the fact that a Fairy
is in his bag, proceeds homewards, supposing that he has captured a
badger, or some other kind of vermin, but, all at once, he hears the
being in the bag speak, and throwing the bag down he runs away in a
terrible fright. Such in short is the tale. I will proceed to give
several versions of this story.
