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,

Montgomeryshire was haunted--the rumour of which event I well

remember--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, and she ran after it to catch it, but that 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.
