USELESS TO EXPERIMENT.
JAYSMITH: Wonderful thing, this hypnotism, isn't it, McCorkle ?
McCorkle : Very wonderful, indeed.
Jaysmith : Something like mesmerism, I understand ?
McCorkle: Yes, very similar to it ,
Jaysmith : I see by the newspapers that a skillful operator, after putting
a person into a hypnotic trance, can make him do whatever he tells him to.
McCorkle : Yes, I understand that is the way of it
Jaysmith : And the subject is utterly unable to resist
McCorkle : Just so.
Jaysmith : Do you know I've often wondered if I possess the power of
putting persons into the hypnotic sleep?
McCorkle (a trifle wearily) : I wouldn't be surprised if you do.
Jaysmith : Do you really think so ?
McCorkle : I'm almost sure of it
Jaysmith : Suppose you let me try on you, just for the fun of the thing?
McCorkle (hastily) : O, it wouldn't be of any use lor you to try it with
ine, Jaysmith. You wouldn't have any success whatever. Even if Mr.
Hypnoter himself were to try it he'd fail. I couldn't lend you a fiver even
if you did hypnotize me, for I haven't a dollar about me.
