Matlose is a famous hob-goblin of the Nootkas; he is a very Caliban of spirits; his head is like the head of something that might have been man but is not; his uncouth bulk is horrid with black bristles, his monstrous teeth and nails are like the claws of a bear. Whoever hears his terrible voice falls like one smitten, and his curved claws rend a prey into morsels with a single stroke.

Raven Annoys Octopus – One morning, as the tide went out, the old people came to sit and watch the ocean. As they sat there, they saw a woman walking along the beach.

She sat down on a rock at the edge of the water and began to dig.
