1 董观:
有董观者尝为僧,居于太原佛寺。太和七年夏,与其表弟王生南游荆楚,后将入长安。道至商于。一夕。舍山舘中。王生既寐,观独未寝。忽见一物出烛下,既而掩其烛。状类人手而无指。细视,烛影外若有物,观急呼王生。生起,其手遂去。观谓王曰:“慎无寝,魅当再来。”因持挺而坐伺之。良久,王生曰:“魅安在。兄妄矣。既就寝。顷之。有一物长五尺馀。蔽烛而立,无手及面目。观益恐,又呼王生。生怒不起。观因以挺椹其首,其躯若草所穿。挺亦随入其中,而力取不可得。俄乃退去。观虑又来,迨晓不敢寝。明日。访舘吏。吏曰:“此西数里有古杉,常为魅,疑即所见也。”即与观及王生径寻,果见古杉,有挺贯其柯叶间。吏曰:“人言此为妖且久,未尝见其真。今则信矣。”急取斧,尽伐去之。出《宣室志》
