Once upon a time, there was a tailor and his son, Jasper. The old had a goat, which he held in high esteem because it yielded milk every single day. The boy was responsible for taking care of the goat day by day, to bring the animal to best pastures and had it stomach filled. However, the naughty goat blamed the boy for not feeding him properly, so the tailor got so angry that he chased his son away from home.
Jasper applied for apprentice to several craftsmen, and having learned their crafts, he received magical items from them: a table always a full of food-and drink, a donkey yielding gold coins and a stick beating his enemies if he orders so. The wonderful tools, of course, attracted the attention of the landlady in the inn, where the lad stayed for the night on his way home.
