There is a little plot to this subject, and the beginning shows how the old fortune-teller took her revenge on the old German, who refused to allow his daughters to have their fortunes told, by bewitching the matches, with which he tries to light his pipe. And then the matches do some unusual things. The matches, when they start their antics, do some very amusing and seemingly quite human tricks. One of them even walks a tight rope and stands on his head on it.
