Summary

An apparition threatened a boy, but was exorcised by a priest.

An old man told the following story as true. When he was a boy, he unwisely took a short cut at night. A red-haired woman came out of an old brewery and followed him. He wouldn't talk to her, and she threatened to catch him the following night. When he got home he fell in a faint. The next night, the priest accompanied him to the same spot and eventually drove the woman away with holy water and steel rods. She flew over the steeple in a blaze of fire.
