31.   	Of all the monsters put together by  the  Greek  imagination
32.   	the  Centaurs (Kentauroi) constituted a class in themselves.
33.   	Despite a strong streak  of  sensuality  in  their  make-up,
34.   	their  normal  behaviour  was  moral, and they took a kindly
35.   	thought of man's welfare. The attempted outrage of Nessos on
36.   	Deianeira,  and  that  of the whole tribe of Centaurs on the
37.   	Lapith women, are more than offset  by  the  hospitality  of
38.   	Pholos  and  by  the  wisdom of Cheiron, physician, prophet,
39.   	lyrist, and the instructor of Achilles.  Further,  the  Cen-
40.   	taurs  were  peculiar in that their nature, which united the
41.   	body of a horse with the trunk and head of a  man,  involved
42.   	an  unthinkable  duplication  of  vital organs and important
43.   	members. So grotesque a combination seems  almost  un-Greek.
44.   	These  strange  creatures were said to live in the caves and
45.   	clefts of the mountains, myths associating  them  especially
46.   	with the hills of Thessaly and the range of Erymanthos.

49.   E	a floating eye
50.   F	a freezing sphere
51.   G	a gnome
52.   H	a hobgoblin;
53.   	Hobgoblin. Used by the  Puritans  and  in  later  times  for
54.   	wicked  goblin  spirits,  as in Bunyan's 'Hobgoblin nor foul
55.   	friend', but its more correct use is for the friendly  spir-
56.   	its  of  the brownie type.  In 'A midsummer night's dream' a
57.   	fairy says to Shakespeare's Puck:
58.   	        Those that Hobgoblin call you, and sweet Puck,
59.   	        You do their work, and they shall have good luck:
60.   	        Are you not he?
61.   	and obviously Puck would not wish to be called  a  hobgoblin
62.   	if that was an ill-omened word.
63.   	Hobgoblins are on the whole, good-humoured and ready  to  be
64.   	helpful,  but fond of practical joking, and like most of the
65.   	fairies rather nasty people to annoy. Boggarts hover on  the
66.   	verge of hobgoblindom.  Bogles are just over the edge.
67.   	One Hob mentioned by Henderson, was Hob Headless who haunted
68.   	the  road  between Hurworth and Neasham, but could not cross
69.   	the little river Kent, which flowed into the  Tess.  He  was
70.   	exorcised  and  laid under a large stone by the roadside for
71.   	ninety-nine years and a day. If anyone was so unwary  as  to
72.   	sit  on  that stone, he would be unable to quit it for ever.
73.   	The ninety-nine years is nearly up, so trouble may  soon  be
74.   	heard of on the road between Hurworth and Neasham.

79.   L	a leprechaun;
80.   	The Irish Leprechaun is the Faeries' shoemaker and is  known
81.   	under  various  names  in different parts of Ireland: Cluri-
82.   	caune in Cork, Lurican in Kerry, Lurikeen in Kildare and Lu-
83.   	rigadaun  in  Tipperary.  Although he works for the Faeries,
84.   	the Leprechaun is not of the same species. He is small,  has
85.   	dark  skin  and wears strange clothes.  His nature has some-
86.   	thing of the manic-depressive about it: first  he  is  quite
87.   	happy,  whistling merrily as he nails a sole on to a shoe; a
88.   	few minutes later, he is sullen and  morose,  drunk  on  his
89.   	home-made  heather ale. The Leprechaun's two great loves are
90.   	tobacco and whiskey, and he is a first-rate con-man,  impos-
91.   	sible  to  out-fox.  No  one, no matter how clever, has ever
92.   	managed to cheat him out of his hidden pot of  gold  or  his
93.   	magic  shilling. At the last minute he always thinks of some
94.   	way to divert his captor's attention  and  vanishes  in  the
95.   	twinkling  of  an eye.

111.  Z	a zombie
112.  a	an acid blob
113.  b	a giant beetle
114.  c	a cockatrice;
115.  	Once in a great while, when the positions of the  stars  are
116.  	just  right, a seven-year-old rooster will lay an egg. Then,
117.  	along will come a snake, to coil around the egg, or a  toad,
118.  	to  squat  upon  the  egg, keeping it warm and helping it to
119.  	hatch. When it hatches, out comes a creature  called  basil-
120.  	isk, or cockatrice, the most deadly of all creatures. A sin-
121.  	gle glance from its yellow, piercing toad's eyes  will  kill
122.  	both  man  and beast. Its power of destruction is said to be
123.  	so great that sometimes simply to hear its  hiss  can  prove
124.  	fatal.  Its breath is so venomenous that it causes all vege-
125.  	tation to wither.
126.  	There is, however, one  creature  which  can  withstand  the
127.  	basilisk's deadly gaze, and this is the weasel. No one knows
128.  	why this is so, but although the fierce weasel can slay  the
129.  	basilisk,  it will itself be killed in the struggle. Perhaps
130.  	the weasel knows the basilisk's fatal weakness: if  it  ever
131.  	sees  its own reflection in a mirror it will perish instant-
132.  	ly. But even a dead basilisk is dangerous, for  it  is  said
133.  	that merely touching its lifeless body can cause a person to
134.  	sicken and die.

139.  f	a fog cloud
140.  g	a gelatinous cube
141.  h	a homunculus
142.  i	an imp;
143.  	An 'imp' is an off-shoot or cutting. Thus an 'ymp tree'  was
144.  	a grafted tree, or one grown from a cutting, not from seed.
145.  	'Imp' properly means a small devil, an off-shoot  of  Satan,
146.  	but  the distinction between goblins or bogles and imps from
147.  	hell is hard to make, and many in the  Celtic  countries  as
148.  	well as the English Puritans regarded all fairies as devils.
149.  	The fairies of tradition often hover  uneasily  between  the
150.  	ghostly and the diabolic state.

159.  q	a quivering blob
160.  r	a giant rat
161.  s	a scorpion
162.  t	a tengu;
163.  	The tengu was the  most  troublesome  creature  of  Japanese
164.  	legend.   Part  bird  and part man, with red beak for a nose
165.  	and flashing eyes, the tengu was notorious for  stirring  up
166.  	feuds  and  prolonging  enmity between families. Indeed, the
167.  	belligerent tengus were supposed to have  been  man's  first
168.  	instructors in the use of arms.

171.  u	a unicorn;
172.  	Men have always sought the elusive unicorn, for  the  single
173.  	twisted  horn  which projected from its forehead was thought
174.  	to be a powerful talisman. It was said that the unicorn  had
175.  	simply  to  dip  the tip of its horn in a muddy pool for the
176.  	water to become pure. Men also believed that to  drink  from
177.  	this horn was a protection against all sickness, and that if
178.  	the horn was ground to a powder it would act as an  antidote
179.  	to  all poisons. Less than 200 years ago in France, the horn
180.  	of a unicorn was used in a ceremony to test the  royal  food
181.  	for poison.
182.  	Although only the size of a small horse, the  unicorn  is  a
183.  	very  fierce  beast,  capable  of killing an elephant with a
184.  	single thrust from its horn.  Its  fleetness  of  foot  also
185.  	makes  this solitary creature difficult to capture. However,
186.  	it can be tamed and captured by a maiden. Made gentle by the
187.  	sight  of a virgin, the unicorn can be lured to lay its head
188.  	in her lap, and in this docile mood, the maiden  may  secure
189.  	it with a golden rope.

196.  	The xan were animals sent to prick the legs of the Lords of Xibalba.
197.  y	a yellow light
198.  z	a zruty;
199.  	The zruty are wild and gigantic beings, living in the wildernesses
200.  	of the Tatra mountains.
