1 费忠:
费州蛮人,举族姓费氏。境多虎暴俗。皆楼居以避之。开元中,狄光嗣为刺史,其孙博望生于官舍。博望乳母壻费忠劲勇能射。尝自州负米还家,山路见阻,不觉日暮。前程尚三十馀里。忠惧不免,以所持刃,刈薪数束,敲石取火,焚之自守。须臾,闻虎之声,震动林薮。忠以头巾冒“冒”原作“胃”,据明钞本改。米袋,腰带束之,立于火光之下,挺身上大树。顷之,四虎同至,望见米袋。大虎前躩。既知非人,相顾默然。次虎引二子去,大虎独留火所。忽尔脱皮,是一老人,枕手而寐。忠素劲捷,心颇轻之,乃徐下树扼其喉。以刀拟颈。老人乞命,忠缚其手而诘问之,云是北村费老,被罚为虎,天曹有日历令食人,今夜合食费忠,故候其人。适来正值米袋,意甚郁怏,留此须其复来耳,不意为君所执。如不信,可于我腰边看日历,当知之。忠观历毕。问何以救我。答曰:“若有同姓名人,亦可相代。异时事觉,我当为受罚,不过十日饥饿耳。”忠云:“今有南村费忠,可代我否。老人许之。忠先持其皮上树杪,然后下解老人。老人曰:“君第牢缚其身附树,我若入皮,则不相识,脱闻吼落地,必当被食。事理则然,非负约也。”忠与诀,上树,掷皮还之。老人得皮,从后脚入,复形之后,大吼数十声,乃去。忠得还家。数日,南村费忠锄地遇啖也。出《广异记》
