One night a man was going home and the night was very dark. when he was passing an old house a noise like as if a bag of bottles was rattling inside the wall.
This kept on all the way for about a mile and he though it was inside the wall all the time.
The next night a man was going the road and he had an ass and a bag on the ass. He heard the bag of bottles and the bag fell off the ass.
