. . ; . . . . lead pipe in your hand and as
, you swatted him a terrific blow
-t- in thc region where his medulla
oblongata ought to bc you found
that you had never touched him
at all , and you shiver at the
sound of his ricndish laugh as hc
incited 1 away into nothingncss.
'l'his would bc hell sure cnough.
The spiritualist further said that
"All things that people fear upon
earth , they will fear in thc spir-
it . " This would indicate that
thc fear of a democratic majority
docs not perish with the Hcsh.
Someday , perhaps , when you and I
Shall know the wherefore and thc why
Of things that be ,
'rhc cipher message of the years
Flashed forth by myriad c i r c 1 in i g
spheres ,
Shall IJC made clear to spirit ears
For you and mc. _
Someday , perhaps , when wc shall sec
The map of human destiny
Tn ' view
bird's-cyc ,
Across its stretches wc shall scan
III bold relief since Time began ,
The wherefore and } thc why of man ,
Depicted truc.
Though eye and ear and mind dccic\'c ,
'rhcrc's one thing I will still believe
With hope that grows ;
The God who fashioned land and sea
Has never wrought a mystery
That , ill His own good season , He
, Will not disclose.
