Five miles of the west of Chachuran, there is a patch of ten to twenty feet high jungle grass in a plot of three to four square miles. In the middle of this plot hides the priest. The priest is a one-eyed man with the impress of two copper coins burnt between his brows. Some say that in the days of Ranjit Singh, this old man must have been tortured for his mischief.
Only British government can control him now. A pig with foot-long teeth enters the grass patch. The narrator goes into the patch to shoot it for the sake of honour. He takes a gun and is accompanied by his dog, Mr. The dog slips in and out of the grass clumps, but the narrator finds it hard to go through the thick grass.

The villagers throw stones at him if they see him. The narrator walks to the village of Arti-goth for a drink. The narrator learns from the villagers of Arti-goth that the patch of grass is full of devils and ghosts. They are all in the service of the priest. Men, women and children who enter the grass never return.
