MAGTÁR – literary column. A short story by Széki Soós János about a personality from his native village of Szék (Sic) in Transylvania. It is a sad story of a boy, Báró Pista (Pista Baron), who didn’t know who his father was – though according to village gossip his mother may have gotten pregnant while serving as hired help in the household of a local noble family. When the poverty stricken, hapless Pista unsuccessfully attempts to take on the job of shepherd, we also get inklings of traditions related to this ancient profession.
