  1. There was once a man coming from a fair at twelve oclock at night, he was walking along the railway line, he saw a light in the distance, he stood waiting for the light to come, thinking he would have company home. When the light reached him it passed him out quickly and went into a sandpit.
    When it passed him out he noticed it had two legs and no head.
