In an early version of the Sweeney Todd story, the inn-keeper and his wife murder the three students (first two panels) and place their dismembered bodies in a barrel of brine, intending to sell the meat as Bacon. St Nicholas foils their plan by re-assembling the bodies and reviving the three victims, who can be seen in their barrel in the right-hand panel.
