Text

So leaving the maid in astonishment, they began to climb the mountain. They had not gone far when they met a young ogre, who was cook to Shutendoji. What was the horror of the warriors to find he was carrying home part of a human body, which he meant to cook for the ogres' supper. Indeed, all around, lay human bones, bleaching in the sun, which had been flung down the precipice from the ogres' kitchen! Hiding his disgust as well as he could, Raiko bade the ogre good evening, and asked politely if he and his friends could find shelter for the night in his masters' castle.
