The End Of The Wizard (WeltenBrand)

In Mauren lived a lumberjack who on a daily basis covered the long journey to the Maurer Berg to perform his hard work there He entered into an allegiance with the devil who gave him a hazel twig With this magic stick he could without any effort slide the heaviest timber down into the valley One day the lumberjack was together with boys and girls preparing some corn There was a knock at the window One boy went outside and in front of the house stood a stranger who asked to speak with the woodcutter He became very agitated and was afraid to leave the room It knocked a second and third time and then he was gone Inside one heard only a frightful scream Nobody has since seen the ill-fated A boot and a clump of hair was all that was found of him
