Once a man who was living out near the mountain got drowned. One night some men were going to a party near by. On the way they saw a man dressed in black sitting on a stone. One of the men decided to follow him, but suddenly he disappeared.

Another night not long afterwards a woman went to a neighbour's house for some eggs. But the woman was going to bed, so she told her come next evening. As the woman was going to bed, she looked out a the window and saw a man coming up near the gate through which the other was going. Next day she asked the woman if she saw the man, and she said she saw nobody.
