Once upon a time there was a Spirit on the hill near our house. One night after one oclock My Great-grand was coming from the mines, He saw a spirit It followed him until he came to a stream
It had a stick in its hand, It is said that a spirit could never cross a stream when it is after anybody. When he came in home he got a weakness. He was sick a bout a week but he got all right after. He said he would not be out late any other night since.
