The Samurai's Servant.
Flere is an interesting legend about
an ofuda which appears as the badge
of a family at Matsue. The story, as
Beam tells it, is that: "Once a serv
;ii;t of the family went to Ise, in de
splte of his masters orders to remain
in the house. When he came back
the samurai flew into a rage arid kill
ed him. Then the murderer felt sorry
and buried the body in the garden or
bamboo patch. The day after the
servant came br.ck agaia and apolo
prized for his absence at Ise. You
can guess the rest of the legend.
When the grave was opened there
was no dead body there—only an ofu
da cut in two, as if by a sword slash."
