  1. One night a man was coming from town, and it was very late in the night. The man had to pass by a river. As he was passing through the river the horse stopped. The man looked behind him, and saw a coffin in the car.
    Then he looked in the river, and saw a big strange animal in the river. The man hit the animal with the whip, and the animal roared. Then the animal turned into a ball of fire. Ever since, light is seen in that river.
