1 徐铁臼:
东海徐甲,前妻许氏,生一男,名铁臼。而许氏亡,甲改娶陈氏,凶虐之甚,欲杀前妻之子。陈氏产一男,生而祝之曰:“汝若不除铁臼,非吾子也。”因名之为铁杵。欲以擣臼也。于是捶打铁臼,备诸毒苦,饥不给食,寒不加絮。甲性暗弱,又多不在舍,后妻得意行其酷暴。铁臼竟以冻饿甚,被杖死,时年十六。亡后旬馀。鬼忽还家。登陈氏牀曰。我铁臼也,实无罪,横见残害,我母诉怨于天,得天曹符,来雪我冤,当令铁杵疾病,与我遭苦时同,将去自有期日,我今停此待之。”声如生时,家人不见其形,皆闻其语,恒在屋梁上住。陈氏跪谢,频为设奠,鬼云:“不须如此,饿我令死。岂是一飡所能酬谢。陈氏夜中窃语道之,鬼应声云:“何故道我。今当断汝屋栋。”便闻锯声,屑亦随落,拉然有声响,如栋实崩。举家走出,炳烛照之,亦无异。又骂铁杵曰:“杀我,安坐宅上为快耶。当烧汝屋。”即见火然,烟烂火盛,内外狼籍。俄尔自灭。茅茨俨然,不见亏损。日日骂詈。时复讴謌。謌云。桃李花,严霜落奈何。桃李子,严霜落早已。”声甚伤凄,似是自悼不得成长也。于时铁杵六岁。鬼至,病体痛腹大,上气妨食。鬼屡打之。打处青黶。月馀而死。鬼便寂然。出《还冤记》
