Among the old annals of Kinnic kinnic which have recently been unearthed is found the following: And it came to pass that in the kingdom of Wisconsin a son was born and he gave much promise of a bright youth and a noble manhood. And as the sun did rise and set each day, so did this youth grow and prosper. And it came to pass that 111 this kingdom were other youths like unto this first youth, who also were men of noble mein. And one ruler governed over this kingdom and was a queen. And it came to pass that this youth, whom we shall call David, was a youth of great forbearance, and he did dwell upon goodly acres and did till the soil and tend his herds of goats. And it came to pass after many years this youth called David did ex perience a queer yearning in his bosom and did ask all, even to the ruler of his kingdom, what was betoken by these strange signs. But no one in the kingdom knew and the answer came not. But lo! one night after attending all day to his herds he laid his weary body upon a cot and there came to him a dream in which there appeared a beautiful maiden and these strange feelings were explained. And on the morrow David did appear before the ruler of the kingdom and did haste to tell his dream. When he had finished the ruler rose up and sayeth “It is well, thou has in thy manly bosom a noble heart—go hence and wed the maiden of thy choice.” And straightway did this youth go and take unto himself a wife and did bring her home to his goodly acres and his large herds. Now it so happened that among the other youths of his age, who did dwell upon like acres, were many musicians and these musicians headed by one whom we shall call Goliath did plan to appear before David and make merry upon the occasion of his marriage. And it came to pass that they did so act as they had planned and did indulge in great festivities and did fill the air with mellow strains from their wondrous harps. And it so happened that the ruler of the kingdom was near by and did invite the patriarchs to participate with the youths but these wise men of the tribe being aged and infirm did decline, saying, “Kind ruler, we know them not.” And it came to pass that upon the next day David did come forth and did accompany the band of musicians into the adjoining province of Hudson and there at the house of Wheeler for one night and one day did David and his friend Helms feast them. Then it came to pass that the youths headed by Goliath did rise up as one man and did thank their hosts and did shower gold upon the ground at their feet and sayeth as one man, “David is a noble youth—a great and good man” and they went upon their way rejoicing.
