Quote: Pygmies.

Pygmies 139 "At harvest time, they were forced to go with their little axes and cut down the grain, exactly as a wood-cutter makes a clearing in the forest; and when a stalk of wheat, with its over-burdened top, chanced to come crashing down upon an unfortunate pygmy, it was apt to be a very sad affair." “The Pygmies” Hawthorne, Tanglewood Tales.
