  Ivan was a timid little man---so timid that the villages called him "pigeon" or mocked him with the title "Ivan the terrible."

  Every night ivan stopped in at the tavern1 which was one the edge of the village graveyard2. Ivan never crossed the graveyard to get to his lonely shack3 on the other side. That path would save many minutes, but he had never taken it---not even in the full light of noon.

  "Here, Ivan. When you get to the center of the graveyard, in front of the biggest tomb, stick the sword into the ground. In the morning we shall go there. If the sword is in the ground---five rubles to you!" Ivan took the sword. The men drank a toast: "to ivan the terrible!" They roared laughing.

  The wind howled around ivan
