Title: Mouse


A mouse nibbling clothes was a sign of disaster, if not death, to the owner.  It was thought that the evil one occasionally took the form of a mouse.  Years ago, when Craig Wen Farm, Llawr-y-glyn, near Llanidloes was haunted, the servant girl told her mistress, the tenant of the farm, that one day she was going through the corn field, and that a mouse ran before her. She ran after it to catch it, but when she was opposite the barn, the mouse stopped and laughed at her and ran into a hole.  The mouse, therefore, was the evil spirit, and the cause of all the mischief that followed.
