Once a man was coming home after visiting late at night. He had his dog with him. His dog started to jump and bark around him. Out jumped a little man with a caroline hat and a swallow-tail coat and a knee-breeches and walked side by side with the man. The dog kept barking between them until they crossed a stream on the road. He did not see the little man any more after that. They say that ghosts cannot cross streams.
