Story Summary

A fiddler tries to convince a farmer that his fiddling brings the sun up in the morning, while the farmer tries to convince the fiddler that his settling his cows in the barn causes the sun to set. Neither is sure of the other's claims but to this day the sun has never failed to rise nor set.
